This Blog Critique has a major focus on how to make more money by recommending things to your readers. Its non-invasive, helpful and almost completely passive.
Ciao Florentina was the winner of the third Blog Tyrant Blog Critique – the random number generator choosing her Tweet out of about 200 entries. As always, please watch the video, visit her site and get stuck in to her in the comments section. The more feedback and discussion that happens the more often I will do these things. Like I’ve said a hundred times, I only want to do them if they are useful to you.
What’s in the video?
I kept the video short, sharp and extremely shiny. Youtube kept rejecting my videos for being too long so I decided to focus in on a few key areas as opposed to picking through everything. Some of the things that get mentioned include:
- how you can add one page to your blog that helps your readers and makes a lot of money
- why you need to get away from Feedburner and join Aweber to massively grow subscribers
- why keyword research is vital before you create an eBook
- why Twitter buttons aren’t really as good as people think
Something that I totally forgot to mention is that I think Florentina could quite easily use this blog and her Aweber list to launch a recipe book in the future. She has a wonderful knack for taking photos and writing out the recipes with a lot of personality injected into the whole thing. I really think a book could do well if she grew that list properly.
How can I get my blog critiqued?
Okay guys I get so many people asking how they can get their blog critiqued. There are two and only two ways:
- Subscribe by email and wait for instructions
The first way is to subscribe by email and wait for me to send out the call for entries. Each time I do it differently. Sometimes we enter on Facebook, other times Twitter, sometimes on the blog itself. Unless you are subscribed you will miss out.
- Order a Skype consult call
After repeated requests I have decided to set aside a small amount of time each week to do Skype voice consult calls. I normally take only one person a week, sometimes less depending on my schedule. During these sessions we can discuss your blog, your strategy or any other online marketing issues you want my help with. In my other life I charge a lot of money for these types of consultations but am doing it for my Blog Tyrant crowd at a reduced rate.
Please note that I only work with people that I think have the determination and seriousness to improve their business. If you want to try and book a session shoot me an email through the contact form.
What suggestions do you have?
Alright guys, please do your absolute best on this one. I’d love to hear all your suggestions, criticism and feedback about Florentina’s food blog. Please leave a comment and get chatting as it has been extremely helpful in the past.
