How to Increase the Visibility of your Business

(across different platforms)

As the Algorithms get much more difficult to understand in Facebook and Instagram people are now focusing on other channels to grow and I’m gonna show you how you can increase your visibility

Let’s be honest, because I have overlooked at this before and honestly this is a huge factor to help you gain more visibility. Instead of relying on one platform you can now focus on 2-3 to help you stay on top of the competition. But it sounds like a lot of work? Yes, trust me it is and as a social media manager, sometimes I don’t even know how to keep up, but it’s a great way to grow your audience. Especially if you are building the like, know, trust factor!

Why channeling to other platforms is important?

Let’s start here first because things are always changing and technology never seems to stop. But besides that, people’s behaviors are also changing making it fiercer to get them to purchase anything nowadays.

The only time they’ll invest in something is if it gives them Value! And don’t get me wrong, I am the same way, I’m very picky about where I put my money especially if I’m in a budget too!

You and I know the only time we buy from someone is when you have done some research, read that person’s blog post, seen some of their videos, looked at their website or social media and so on… before you even join their email list, right? At least this is the pattern I follow. J

Then, after you’ve received lots of information you then want to purchase from that person because you feel like she/he has given you a lot! And now you say, “Okay, I really love her/his content and I’m ready to buy”, right?

This is just a common example I’m giving you but majority of the people do this in one shape or form. But you see the thread here? They go from social media, to blog post, to email list. No one buys right off the bat because they want to learn from you and most importantly trust you! So, the key here is to give, give, give, and then you offer!

How to Channel other platforms?

We’ll dive a little deeper here on how you can connect other platforms and give Value to others.

First, you want to make sure your brand is ready. Majority of the people who get started miss this and it’s by far the most important one of them all. And look at it this way,


Your business is judge by your brand! 


You want to sell to them? Well one thing you must keep in mind is this- people LOVE simplicity and you can start with 2-3 colors to get you started with your brand, pick 2-3 fonts that you know will attract a good crowd, and three pick a theme. For example, if you look at Jenn Scalia’s website you can see her website is very simple and organized. If you noticed, you love websites that are mostly simple and well put, you and I would never go to a website that has 20 different colors, or somewhere you can’t even find a blog?




Now, after you have figured out your brand you can go and create a simple product. A product can be anything, really.

You can create a checklist, tip sheet, worksheet, coaching, consulting, etc anything you think could be of Value to others (At this point, you can be known as an Authority in your industry)

Think about what your audience needs at this point and ask yourself these questions

  • What are they struggling with?
  • Where do they need support?
  • What do they want to learn?
  • Who interests them the most?
  • Where do they find inspiration?

These are some of the questions that can help you define a product or service and give you more than enough information to create one that can truly help someone with something they’re struggling with. This should put you ahead of the game and you already know and at this point you can move to the next phase.

Now, the second phase is a little more up-leveled, you’ve already gained some skills and gathered enough information. You also have more access to more people and you can almost start teaching in groups instead of one-on-one or posts. You’ll get more people at this phase asking you questions and more than common and you can deliver it more efficiently at once.

Some of the things you can offer in this stage are-

  • Workshops
  • Webinars
  • And even courses

These are usually more valuable because you’re delivering even more content and answering questions face-to-face. And people value this very much, you can also charge for this services and start at a low-price point too.

Promoting your content

Now here’s the fun part, if you want to increase your visibility, you can create a single blog posts for the week and promote most of the time. Most people think you must write 3 blog posts in a week. Honestly, if you’re just starting out, I would recommend you stick to 1 a week and promote majority of the time.

You can promote in all the different social media platforms. Use and grab pieces of content to share bits and pieces of that specific blog posts.

And that’s the beauty of it. You literally get to share even more FREE content! That’s why I love blogging because I don’t have to break my head looking for more content. The content is already there and I can even re-purpose it.

Also, you can use some of your blog posts and create a mini course around it. You’re probably saying how? As long as the blog posts all match in information you can save time to launch your next course. Again, written content and there lies the beauty of re-purposing.

Make sure you display your blog posts in the right places withing your website. Using your footer and sidebar can be helpful to the visibility of your content. Making it eye-catching to new readers who might benefit from your valuable information.

Alright, I’m sure you’re loaded of information right now. Do you have new ideas to increase your visibility? Or ways of promoting your content? Let me know in the comments, I’m always up for new ways to grow.

3 Ways to Make your Blog Shareworthy

 

3 Ways to make your blog shareworthy

It doesn’t matter what others say, you can’t deny the fact that you want to make your blog a full-time. Let me show you how you can make your blog, Shareworthy. Yes, everyone wants to have massive success when it comes to blogging. You want the followers, the readers, and the subscribers. But, the truth be told, most of us want to be recognized for our efforts and their work, there’s nothing wrong with that.

So how do you make it Shareworthy?

Blogging allows you to connect with your tribe, peers, and most importantly your clients. It gives you the opportunity to share your stories and the chance to promote your services to those who are interested in what you have to offer.

Write Killer Content

Your voice matters regardless of what others say, especially if you’re writing in your own unique voice. Killer content should be interesting and allow your readers to connect in a way that’s beneficial to them. So, if you’re new, the best thing you can do is to just start practicing because practice can move you a long way.




It should be content that gives people hope, tells a story, triggers emotions, gives clarity, and challenges the way most think. You have the power to create opportunity for yourself.
Another way of writing killer content is by doing research. You can always go to Twitter or Google trends to see what is currently trending in your industry.
You can also save your ideas on Word and add to your draft later while you’re still searching for more content, like I did with this post. I literally had to go back and save this post because I kept finding more information that would be very useful to the readers. And the majority of the time they do find it Shareworthy.
On another note about Word, what I like about it too is that it corrects your grammar so if you have problems with this, Word can seriously be a lifesaver after all. You can copy and paste to your WordPress without having to make too many changes and then all you have to do is add your beautiful photos to really captivate other readers.

Gift Center

For photos, I use Canva. This is a super easy system that anyone can use to create gorgeous Pinnable images. I also use Pexels when I need free stock photos. Other than that, you can always purchase affordable stock photos from Etsy and Creative Market.

Having a Community

Yes, I believe is an important one because your community is the one who gives you an extra hand and allows you to make a difference in their lives. It allows you to connect with them in a personal level and make genuine connections that can ultimately open new doors for you.
You can reach out to them by following them on Instagram and liking their photos. You can comment on their posts and let them know genuinely how much it resonated with you and how big of an impact it made for you. TELL THEM! They’ll remember you for connecting with them and most likely they will return the favor by commenting back.
And if you want more momentum you can always continue to comment on others blogs and build more relationships that way. Part of my success is due to commenting on other’s blogs.


“Consistency is key to growing your community and your blog”


Create a Strategy

I know we spoke about consistency but it is key to helping you grow your business/blog exponentially.
Share bits and pieces of your blog on Instagram. What I love about Instagram is that it’s a micro blog for most females. Especially now, with the rise of the influencers. This is a great place to share your knowledge and find ways to collaborate with other potential bloggers and help you shift to the next level.
You can also use Facebook and this may be one of the most important platforms of them all. Despite all the algorithms this is where you want to get your readers excited about the work you’re about to launch, you can ask them questions, etc. Engage with them and look at your analytics to see how you’re performing.
Another way is using the power of Pinterest because it’s still one of the largest traffic sources for many ladies. I mean who doesn’t jump in there for recipes, travel advice, fashion trends, etc.? Everyone does, so utilize it to stand out. One of my favorite things to do on Pinterest is to pin between 2pm and 4pm and I have come to realize that most people are just bored during that time of the day, so I get a lot of repins.

Summary

I spoke about creating content that tells a story, triggers emotions, gives clarity, and challenges the way most think.
Also, I spoke about having a community that allows you to connect with them in a personal level and allow you to make genuine connections that can ultimately open new doors for you.
And third, creating a strategy. This is so crucial because without a strategy; the time devoted in your blog can end up in a loss of time and money.
So, there you go, all the deets you need to know to making your blog shareworthy.
What are some other ways you make your blog shareworthy? Tell me in the comments below and I would love to hear all about it.

Easy Instagram Tips that Convert

Easy Instagram Tips that Convert

We’ve all heard how Instagram is consistently changing- and very quickly, too. Well today I’d like to share some easy Instagram tips with you that really convert. Whether you’re new to Instagram or you’ve been using it for a while, I’d encourage you to take these tips to heart. Whether you just need a refresher or these tips are all new to you, I believe they will still be beneficial.

Create a Theme

First of all, decide on a color scheme. Get a little creative when deciding and then stay consistent with whatever you choose. The only way people will stay is if you keep your color scheme on point, because this helps them feel like they know what they’ll be getting. An IG account that is all over the place rarely keeps loyal followers. Think of Instagram as your own, personal magazine. People are attracted to high quality photos especially when there’s a color scheme to it. Think Good Housekeeping, Real Simple, Home and Garden, and other big-time magazines. They are always consistent in their branding, and you could usually identify what the magazine was even if there was no title.

This is what you want your Instagram to become. The photo to the left is my account @_jocelynep_ and the second one to the right is @tower28creative, both give you a story about what it is each do. They’re both very appealing to the eye and colorful. The tones and filters are consistent and clear.

Find clarity when it comes to what to post- randomly posting pictures won’t help you. Add photos of things related to your business or hobby and from there you can create tons of content and from all different angles.

Also, edit your photos the same way each time. Don’t be the one who posts a clean, clear photo one day, and then adds a quote that’s all choppy and blurry the next… this will kill your engagement and your credibility too. Keep your filters all the same with the same consistency. If you take photos with your phone I’d recommend using the app @colorstory. This is an incredible app that can make your photos stand out and look more professional. So definitely take advantage of it.

Keep it Simple

When it comes to creating beautiful photos another easy way to convert is to use a simple background. If you’re taking photos yourself then pick a white background or other color that represents your brand and stick to it. Keep your background simple so that the main subject of your photo is what stands out. If your background is too “busy” it will take focus away from the main point of your photo.

Use Natural Lighting

One of the best times to get natural lighting is between 7-8am in the morning. This (along with right before sunset) is referred to as “golden hour” because you tend to get soft, golden light at those times. This light is better because it isn’t as harsh as the midday sun, but it is still bright enough to take pictures in.

If you like to photograph flatlays, make sure that your colors are consistent in every flatlay. But if you shoot at all different times of day, in all different types of light, you will not be able to maintain that consistency. The best thing to do is to practice as you go and once you find the right time of day to shoot, the right spot to shoot, and the right color tones and editing strategies, you’ll get some amazing photos. Trust me.

Here’s a Pro tip: If you’re all about flatlays you can use jewelry, books, bags, lipsticks, candles and other home decorations to really create a personal touch to your album and complete that beautiful photo gallery.

Use Wise Captions

This one is so important too. When you are intentional about captions you set the stage to convert even more. You can ask relevant questions or share information with your audience in the caption. And you know what’s  interesting? I’ve found that at least 70% or more of the people are looking for information on Instagram. How crazy is that? It’s no wonder this is a growing platform.

Besides all the pretty photos, captions are one of the best ways to grow your following and your engagement. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my following, but the engagement is what matters the most to me.

People are more likely to comment, like, or share when you consistently share quality, candid, and authentic information or inspiration.

Electronics

Other than the tips I shared above, there’s no other “rules” to IG. My only other tip is to post consistently.  Pick a time of the day where you think your audience will be available to see your posts and schedule ahead of time so you’re not stressing out about it.


Instagram is all about connecting with others and socializing so take advantage of this opportunity to grow and make some friends.

4 Morning Rituals Successful Entrepreneurs Need

 

4 morning rituals entrepreneurs need

Starting your morning doesn’t mean you need to wake up and grab the phone. No, it requires you to prepare the mind. Let me show you four morning rituals successful entrepreneurs need.

How do you start?

One excellent way to wake up is being grateful. You can write down in your journal about the things you’re completely grateful for or you can say them out loud. Just make sure you don’t wake up your neighbor next door or you could, however, if you’re in a really good mood I say the heck with it.

Spring Wedding

Give yourself a good stretch

You have enough time to get a good stretch once you wake up. You can do some yoga poses or just do the normal stretch pose that you know. One of my favorite ones is the forward bend, can I tell you how amazing I feel after I do this?

What this pose does, it calms your brain and reliefs stress, stimulates the liver and kidneys and it also improves digestion. How amazing right?


The point of stretching is: so your body can feel energize throughout the day.


 A good shot of water

The second thing you should do in the morning is drink a cup full of water. You could add apple cider vinegar, lemon, cinnamon, or honey. I usually add all the above.

The great thing about apple cider is that it helps promote healthy blood sugar, improves nutrient absorption, and many other benefits that come along with it.

Lemon also helps with digestion and helps with bloating big-time. If you’re having any type of indigestion, you have to drink lemon on an empty stomach.

I like to keep a glass full next to me when I wake up that way I’m starting the day off right and not feeling dehydrated since I’ve had so many hours without drinking water.

Set your Intentions daily

Normally most will reach out to their phone. But instead take your time to write about your intentions you have for this day specifically. You could write about how you’re going to speak to your clients, managers, colleagues, family, husband, etc.

Tell yourself what you’re going to expect out of this day. Are you going to sign up a new client? Or are you going to surprise your husband with a little sexy back? Or are you going to take your time creating new things? Are you going to create content for a new launch you have in mind?

Whatever that is, make sure you do it with love and emotion. If you feel like you need to play some music in the background do it. Whatever makes you feel in tune, just do it. That’s the feeling you want to be in, anyway.

Just do whatever makes you happy in the Morning

I don’t know about you but when I play a good beat, my Spanish comes out and I just start cha-cha dancing. I mean who doesn’t want to feel that good in the morning?

Play your favorite song or listen to a good audiobook. Whether is writing, talking, or dancing. Let that emotion come out and just be you for a minute or two. And talking about dancing, I know Amazon has a Free trial to any song, anywhere for 30 days. Girl, this is your chance to show off some skills. Show me what you’re made of. 😉

What a better way to get out of the house than to feel good and not rushed or annoyed? Take your time and take it easy.

Now, if you’re up for a challenge then I have the perfect one for you.

This challenge is all about bringing the best of you for 2017. Are you ready to shift?

3 Ways to Stand Out in 2017

3 ways to stand out in 2017

3 ways to stand out in 2017

Yes, all the promises begin as the new year starts but are you sticking to them? I’ll share with you 3 ways to stand out in 2017.

Let me just say first… we all make false promises at the beginning of the year so how about we just don’t say anything and simply let success run in silence, shall we?

What I have learned in 2016 has been good and bad so I’ll share with you the bad first.




-If you’re just starting make sure that you don’t just post a blog and let it sit there. You MUST and I mean this, share your blog across all the social media platforms you currently use. I share some of this on here.

The good- If you’re new to blogging share content that resonates with your audience meaning find a niche that you’re passionate about. If you’re into relationships then share tips on how to’s, tips, advice, etc. Share tips that will ultimately fix a problem.

I didn’t realize that until like in my 9 months of blogging and I have found to be very helpful.


Posting for the heck of posting will get you nowhere.


 Mindfulness

I regret not using Meditation last year enough. This is key to pushing your life + business forward.

Setting space to set some intentions and spending time focusing on my breathing is one habit I’m creating to stand out in 2017.

You can practice instructing the mind to remain quiet for the duration of your session, this will help you connect with your inner source and get into alignment.

Give yourself space your mind will start to wonder but give it some time and it will slowly come to concentration.

Visualization

How important is it to visualize daily?

Per some sources visualizing is very powerful and it is proven to refine your image and help you with changes in your life. It also helps you to recognize what resources you’ll need throughout the day and most importantly reach your goals.

You also create inner motivation and it gives you the power of positive thinking but how do you do it?

Well the same way you would as if you were meditating but instead you’ll visualize and dream just let your imagination do the work. Pay attention to the way you feel, what emotions are coming up for you? Are you feeling happy? Excited? Intrigued?

Here’s what golfer Jack Nicklaus said about visualizing:

“I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp in-focus picture of it in my head. It’s like a color movie. First, I “see” where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes, and I “see” the ball going there: its path, trajectory, and shape, even its behavior on landing. Then there’s a sort of fade out, and the next scene shows me making the kind of swing that will turn the precious images into reality.”

How amazing is this? So, to give you some good hope, yes you got this, chic.

Consistency

I realized last year was that I was not posting enough on all social media platforms. I lacked consistency.


Consistency is the bread and butter of your business.


Posting daily or weekly can be a gift and it’s important that you do this often. Batch as much as you can and take 3-5 hours a week to do this. The more consistent you are the quicker you come up with a system to do it faster and more efficiently.

New Year, New You

Blogging in the spot is harder and this is something I’m holding myself accountable because it is hard for me to just come up with content right away.

It also helps if you’re working the 9-5 you can set aside 4 hours and split your time in intervals of two hours each.

What else are you going to do to stand out in 2017?

PS… If you’re looking for more ways to grow your business and you need a sisterhood to keep you accountable.

3 Secrets to Grow your Instagram Marketing

3 secrets to grow your instagram marketing

3 secrets to grow your Instagram marketing

Yes, you may think the more followers you have the better, you think you’d look good and get more credibility this way. Wrong! Let me share with you why.
Having a pretty strong follow may seem like you are extremely known throughout Instagram and you don’t get me wrong but when I reached my 2,000 followers I thought I was all that and a bag of chips. No joke. Ha, ha, ha…
But the reality, I was chasing the wrong thing and noticed my I wasn’t getting many clicks on my link in my bio.

Engagement

We all know that content is super important but seriously with Instagram’s algorithms it’s all about the Engagement.


Engagement allows you to earn more sales, shares, likes, and seriously lots of opportunities as an influencer.


Liking

One thing I love about Instagram is this like feature because it shows your followers what you’ve like and you can see what they’re liking as well. So, that’s gold. However, it doesn’t pay the bills and I’m sorry to tell you this awful news.
So, can you get a ton of likes without buying fake likes? Of course, you can. What you can do is:

  • Look at those profiles who are liking your photos and see if they resonate with you. If they’re real people, then you know you’re doing something right. If not, then you probably need to do the following.
  • Check your hashtags and this may be a no brainer but sometimes having certain hashtags can bring you more spammers than anything else.

Now, once you see who’s liking your content you can return the favor and causing them to engage with you more. Because the truth be told everyone knows and sees what their liking.

Comments

Oh, lord comments are truly an amazing way to marketing yourself. How grateful am I when someone leaves a long positive comment? It shows me how they took a few minutes out of their time to leave a thoughtful comment. And in all seriousness if you’re not commenting back you’re missing out big time.

Here’s something to consider:

If they left you an emoji comment, then return the favor with the same thing.
If they left you a long positive message, then return the favor the same way.
And finally, just make sure you interact with them, don’t leave them hanging there and just be yourself but not snobby. Oh, and don’t forget to tag them in the comment or they’ll never see it. There’s a chance they’ll see it but remember you want to leave a lasting impression.

Shares

I think this is one of my favorites marketing strategies. You know how Facebook has that feature to share. Twitter has a re-tweet and so on. Instagram doesn’t quite have that but others can still share your content or vice versa.

There’s this thing called re-gram and of course you can download the app or you can save the photo now with the new version of Instagram. It’s so cool because I don’t have to go back and forth looking for it anymore.
The great thing about when someone shares your content is that they’re sharing your content with their audience. How awesome is that? You’re getting double exposure right there and then.
One thing to keep in mind is if you’re going to be sharing others content is to tag them on the picture and on the caption, as well. This is so crucial because it can get you in big trouble if you don’t and that is copyright issues.

A few extra tips:

  • Look at who is sharing your content
  • Are your pictures unique or can they be replicated? It’s hard to tell if others created content like yours and shared it or if they used yours to share. But pay close attention to what type of content they’re re-sharing.

5 Ways to Take Advantage of Social Media

5 ways to take advantage

We’re spending more time on social media than ever before. And I mean come on there’s so much free content, resources, information, freebies, etc.

There are affiliate links attached which I get credit for when you click. There’s no cost for you but you do help me with building my dream. So thank you.

It’s almost like a concert because it’s so big! There are about 1.71 billion monthly active users on Facebook, 313 million active monthly users on Twitter, and way over 450 million registered on LinkedIn. Say what??

On top of that 74% of customers use social media to make a purchase online and it has 100% higher lead to close rate than any other type of marketing.

So how do you take advantage of Social media?

Traffic –

Send new customers or existing ones to your website allowing you to increase your traffic. You can also optimize your SEO which increases your chances of getting seen by more people. Ultimately, allowing your sales to increase.

One great tool to use for SEO is called Yoast and if you’re not using it, I highly suggest you jump right in. And don’t worry, it’s so easy and simple to use.

Understand your target audience-

Understanding certain personalities and demographics can help you along the way. There are many users who are completely diverse, the good thing is that they’re there to interact and engage.

You can identify a few by what they do, what they consume, what social media platforms they’re on, and what kind of content interests them. You can also find more about their values and their language. The beauty of it is that you can personalize it as much as you want. Remember is not what you say, it’s how you say it that matters.

Schedule-

We get so carried away liking, commenting, and sharing and we forget about our own pages, blogs, etc. Everyone falls under that trap.


Find a scheduler that works for you and use it consistently to schedule a month-to-month.


You can manage multiple social networks, connect with clients and continue to grow your brand.

I currently use Buffer and honestly it’s so awesome that sometimes I just forget that I have it because it automatically schedules my posts for me. I don’t have to think posting something right away. Trust me that was so annoying. There are others you can find such as Hootsuite, Post planner, etc.

Social Listening-

I think this is one of the most important ones for me because its more like customer service. Use questions to get your audience to speak and for you to get real time responses.

Sometimes responding to a negative response can be a great way to handle complaints on social media. Pay attention to what they like when they like your stuff. This is a great way to continue to deliver more of that exactly. Plus, you get to engage with them and build that trust factor.

Return of investment-

If you do it right you can improve your web traffic instantaneously. You can monitor your cost per click and decide whether is worth your investment or not. Starting small is the best way to go, seriously.

Instantly Gain Visibility on Social Media using these 4 Things

Instantly Gain Visibility on Social Media using these 4 Things.

Here’s what you need to be doing on social media for more engagement. These tips will help you get more visibility all across the board.

It can be frustrating not having any kind of traffic. However, you must be consistent with a strategy that works for you to help you increase the flow all across social media.

I have to admit, though, blogging isn’t easy. In fact, it’s taken me more than 6 months to figure it out.

I started with the mindset that I would make it in 2 months and I would know all the tricks, on top of that I didn’t have any plans of actions in place and third I seriously was so disorganized. (Worse habit anyone can have).

So, let me show you how you can gain more visibility on social media using these 4 steps.




 Sharing Content

I get different people asking me about curate content. This means you’re sharing other people’s content.


When you do share content, others actually appreciate it and most likely end up following you, commenting back, and sharing your content as well.


Not only are you sharing content but you’re sharing valuable information with others.

Another reason for sharing content you get to build business relationships with other bloggers.

Daily Treats

They may end up giving you free advice, you could be a guest post for their blog, or refer you a potential client.

Facebook groups

The number of people using Facebook groups is increasing a lot. Facebook reported more than 700 million people use Facebook groups every month and it just keeps growing.

This is an awesome place to increase your visibility. There are groups that allow a promo day and usually, you’re allowed one link.

Pinterest

Did you know that Millennials are using this platform just as much as Instagram?

Pinterest is all about the graphics and this is so key to getting lots of traffic to your website, freebie, etc. Pinterest users often pick graphics that are colorful, high quality, and related to their niche. You can use Canva to create some pretty graphics that converts.

The beauty of Pinterest is that it is a huge search engine to find content. So adding relevant content, using keywords in the descriptions of your pins can help people find you much easier.

Twitter

The beauty of Twitter chats is that you get involved with the community, you support them, and you get to build relationships with other creatives.

One thing about twitter chats is to always be yourself. Show new followers that you’re human and you actually interact with others.

Make sure you engage and you reply to conversations. You never know when you’ll gain a new follower, or new collaborations, or client. The opportunities are endless here.

There’s also that one person who might have a question and you may be the only one to answer it. Jump in and give them a solution right away. You’re establishing authority and trust with them.

There are many ways to increase your visibility on social media. Try those that resonate with you the most and you’ll see your numbers grow steadily.

How to Double the Growth of your Email List?

Gary Vaynerchuk talks about growing your email list all the time and it may seem like it’s a hard task to figure out but that’s where the majority of your growth starts. Let me show you what strategies I use to grow my email list.

Facebook

A few things you can do to make sure you have absolute success with your building that email list is by first creating a call to action.

You can do this by going to your Facebook business page. At the top where your Facebook cover is there is a button with a few call to actions. You can choose test button, promote it, view insights, edit your button, and delete.

As you can see I picked out the “learn more” because I want it to go to the freebie I have available. In result, it leads to my email list, which is pretty awesome.

Daily Treats

And you can also click on view insights to see how your button is performing and check the analytics.

The good thing about the call to action button on Facebook is that it lets you change it as much as you want or better yet increase your email list!

ConvertKit





I started with Mailchimp at the beginning of the year and I couldn’t quite figure it out. You can tell I was just beginning because everyone knows how easy it is to use it. Bahaha..

I then moved to GetResponse and even though it took me just a bit to figure out I think I needed more work. I learned a few more things and unfortunately, the platform wouldn’t work with the mobile version. So, I broke up with it.

Finally, I moved to ConvertKit and omg it’s amazing!

What I love about Convertkit is that is so simple to use whether is a landing page or a pop up for your website its so simple and on top of that they have really good customer service for those newbies like me.

With Convertkit you add a popup to your website with a Freebie so people who are visiting your website for the first time can grab a free gift.

You can see your analytics as soon as you open it up, let me show you here. You can see different shades of blue, they each represent different opt-in forms that people use to join my email list. Talk about performance!

Pinterest

Another way I grow my email list is through the power of Pinterest. There I promote pins that may include checklists, worksheets, or e-guides and you can pin as much as you want, increasing your visibility and allowing you to collect more emails.


The beauty of Social Media is that you can promote your Freebies without paying for ads.


You can get some good traffic by creating a landing page where people can enter their email and grab your freebie, it’s really awesome. You can have as many landing pages as you want and promote several opt-ins all at once through Pinterest.

Other Notes

Email list is so important whether you’re a blogger, coach, or small business owner because that’s where the money is at! You have complete control of what you share with your readers without being restricted or limited to anything.
