Working with a designer is awesome. You get all kinds of ideas for branding and content upgrades that you never could have thought of on your own.
But the downside is the cost. It can get expensive to work with a designer.
I know this because I am one. I work with clients to build a brand and create templates for images and content upgrades. It’s a ton of fun, but the cost can add up quickly.
So, it’s time to face the facts: do you really need to hire a designer to work on your blog?
Organization is a key part of productivity. After all, if you can’t find anything, it’s going to take a while to get things done.
That’s why I’m always super strict about my file organization. Whether it’s for work, my blog, or my personal life, my files always have to have some sort of organization.
So how can we ensure you’ll never lose a file again and always know where to look? Here’s how to organize your blog files.
Content upgrades are an amazing way to grow your email list. In fact, it’s one of the main ways I’ve grown my email list over the past three years as a blogger.
But it’s time to be honest about content upgrades for a second.
Content upgrades alone won’t grow your email list.
I, like many others (yourself included, I’m sure) love seeing my email list numbers grow. I’ll get random emails from Mailchimp saying one or two people subscribed to my email list and it doesn’t seem like a big deal… until I realize I’ve got about 100 more subscribers than I expected!
Talk about an awesome feeling, right?
And yet, every four months or so, I go through my email list and clean it out. I find subscribers who aren’t opening my emails and unsubscribe them from my email list.
Here’s why it’s a good habit to get into, and how you can clean out your email list as well!
One of my favorite things about blogging and online business is how many women are empowered to run their own small businesses.
In fact, most of the blogs I read are written by women. And at my monthly blogging meetup, almost all of the attendees are female.
It’s awesome! And so encouraging to see how many women are rocking their businesses.
However, as women, there’s one thing we need to keep in mind when running our businesses, especially online: femmephobia.
