An extremely good place to start if you’ve never outsourced before or you are just wanting to see what’s working and what’s not over on your blog; is having what we call a ‘blog audit’.
Being a self employed blogger you shouldn’t have to be accountable to anyone; you do what you want to do and you shouldn’t have to explain your reasons for doing what you are doing to anyone however if you are wanting to turn your blog into a business or a brand and make money from your blog; you should also look at it from not only an outsiders point of view quite regularly but also with your ‘business hat’ on.
How long have you been blogging?
Sometimes we can be so wrapped up in writing posts and needing to pay those bills that we neglect the actual site itself – your blog is the summation of all parts, not just the post you are currently writing…. remember that!
It’s difficult though I get it and that’s where I can help. Because you see it every single day, you won’t see things that Joe Bloggs (totally not a pun!) will see but on the flip side to that you WILL see what he doesn’t so sometimes you need someone to say ‘why exactly is that positioned there’ or ‘excellent place for a link/great pop up to but do you know that sign up form or your social links don’t actually work’?
The audit I offer is designed to encourage you to;
- Make effective tweaks and implement any recommendations that will help take your blog to the next level
- Increase web traffic and engagement with your audience
- To start moving towards making money (or more money!) off of your blog
The audit I offer includes:
A simple typed review of your blog from not only a VA but also a lifestyle and parenting blogger myself whose blog IS a business and who has created a monthly supplemental income through blogging as well as managing award winning blogs as a VA.
How much is a blog audit?
A blog audit that will include all of the above is priced at just £30.
will you suggest things to write about and look at my content?
This is not a specific blog post critique; I will of course take a look at some of your blogs but not all.
If you would like me to work specifically on optimising your SEO which includes also suggestive blog posts then you will need to speak to me about increasing your Google ranking.
