I am super to excited to actually be launching my first ever Pinterest Challenge! I got the idea from Natalie Jill's Pinterest Fitness Challenge, but I have never actually seen it done before. It has definitely been a lot of fun figuring it out, but also a ton of work! I really hope it is a help to you!
I would love to do more challenges along the way, but this one to me is most important for beginners. I have been blogging consistently since August, but I struggled a ton with growth. I was getting no engagement and no subscribers. I tried different methods, but nothing seemed to really work. The only awesome thing I had going for me was my ability to rank the first page of Google because of my incredible blogging platform. Besides that, my blog was stagnant.
So in January I set out to have the best blogging year ever and make six figures from my blog before the end of the December. For me this is a high goal, but I know I can reach it. Anyways, if I fail, I would still have come a long way. So this is the train of thought that started my quest to grow my blog. The challenge will cover all the techniques that I have found that work. As of right now, I have tripled my subscribers, and page views. I have also doubled my Pinterest followers and increased my Facebook reach. I still have a long ways to go, but I can't wait to take you on this journey with me! :)
The challenge will span four weeks. Week one we will be getting focused. I explain in day one why I chose to go pretty basic to start, but in all honesty, if you are not focused with a targeted business plan, you will be cheating yourself of traffic. If you are like me, you will just be beating your head against a wall, trying everything, while success avoids you. I have been there, and I promise this is an important step.
Although, if you are a more experienced blogger, you may not find this challenge helpful at all. It is geared towards newer blogs that are just getting started to make money online. We will not be focusing on monetizing at all because I believe that it is better if you focus on gaining traffic first. I am planning on doing a challenge on monetizing as well in the future. :)
Week two of the challenge will cover SEO and powerful content curation. We will focusing on a couple different SEO tactics, as well as, how to use key words to help you get found. You will crash course on creating shareable graphics, and how to make a subscriber freebie.
Week three of the challenge will be focused primarily on optimizing your social media platforms. We will go through each of the popular platforms and cover exactly what you need to do to make your profile stand out.
Week four we will covering the basics of marketing, and how not to look like a newbie. I was so bad at this when I first started, and I have a lot of experience in what not to do! Thankfully, I am part of an incredible team that is committed to helping me grow and expand. I have the amazing benefit of lots of training and lots of feedback. If you are interested in joining my team and getting trained as well, I would love to help you. Just click this link to get an overall preview of what we do and how to join.
