Hey there, Happy Camper!
It's summer, and it's HOT. You want to be outside sippin' a watermelon margarita and cooling your feet in the pool, but NO. You're inside, staring at your monitor, watching the cursor blink blink blink at you as you wonder WHAT THE FLUFF to blog about.
Hmmmm... You consider skipping out on Blog Time, but you know that if you do that, you can expect the following:
- a fat drop in Google rankings
- much lower visibility
- less authority with their site visitors - and without authority, why should they trust you?
- a steady decline in clients and (HELLO) money money money
And even if you DO get clients when your blog is #tumbleweeds, they're more likely to be UN-ideal - tire-kickers, penny-pinchers and pain-in-the-butt people who don't know you and what you're about.
So basically, you've GOT TO DO THIS, right?
What are you going to write about?
How will you phrase it? Will it take forever to get it onto the page?
What will you do if it looks and sounds unpolished and unprofessional? Is there a BlogFairy who will come along and edit it for you and turn it into SEO-glossy client bait???
Well, to paraphrase Mr. Lightbulb* himself, there IS a better way to do it - you just have to find it.
Here at Uncommonly Good Biz, we've got that better way, and it's called Blog Camp.
Blog Camp will have you blogging at lightning speed and adding a polished post to your site in an hour a week, so you'll be back to that tasty margarita in practically no time at all.
In a series of ten weekly meetings and a wee bit of homework, you'll do the following:
- Develop a set of subjects you can speak knowledgeably about
- Create a list of topics your ideal clients are searching for
- Watch quick, no-BS video trainings with writing prompts so you can write your posts super fast
- Optimize those posts for SEO
- Get Quick Edits from the CopyBoss herself on your posts - you won't have to worry about grammar errors or dull, pointless sentences
and best of all?
- Post or schedule your writing RIGHT AWAY.
No more sitting around trying to force yourself to write a blog, and no more shaking your head as you read what you've typed, thinking sadly, "This is absolute crap."
Yeah, I know you've thought that before. I'm not psychic - I've just been there. It took concerted practice to NOT write absolute crap, and guess what?
Blog Camp is that kind of practice - it will have you writing better and faster than ever before.
Camp begins on Monday, June 20th, 2016 - you don't want to think about this and come back in two weeks, because we'll already be sitting around the campfire, roasting weenies and marshmallows by then. We'll be writing together for a total of ten weeks - one 60 minute meeting each week on Monday at 11am - so you'll have your entire summer's worth of blogging DONE and you'll be back to enjoying your life, not inside staring at the monitor.
You're ready to make the kind of effort that grows your business, right? You're the kind of person who's sick of waiting around for something to stick, and you're tired of trying to force yourself to create habits that don't come naturally. Oh, and if I can guess one more thing about you? You're totally over doing business in a boring way - you want to shake things up and try things that are fast, fun, and effective.
Let's do all that together in Blog Camp. What say you, Camper?
See you around the campfire!
OH OH OH PS - If you've got questions, you'd probably like some answers - here you go.
Who is Uncommonly Good Blog Camp perfect for?
If you're blogging to grow your business, this is for YOU. The writing prompts are general enough to customize to any business, and you'll be the one doing the writing, so one size does fit all.
Who won't succeed at Blog Camp?
Hmmm... I could go one route and say, "This isn't for quitters and whiners!" but that's not my style, so I'll say it's NOT for people who already have established blogging practices. If your habits are already impeccable, you'll be wasting valuable time trying to improve on perfection, and if there's one thing I WILL NOT DO, it's waste your time or my own. If you're a perfect blogger already, go spend this time and money on something else.
Blog Camp is also not for hobby bloggers. If you're blogging for fun, I totally admire that, but the prompts in Blog Camp are geared towards growing businesses and profits.
Can I download the videos and do this later?
NOPE. The magic of Blog Camp is the live challenge and assistance. It's a now or never thing.
Can I join at a later date?
Blog Camp starts on June 20, 2016 and runs until August 22, 2016. If you join after June 20, you can hang out for the remainder of the program, but you won't receive anything additional to make up for lost time.
We may or may not have an Autumn edition.
What happens if I'm going on vacation during Blog Camp? Can I have some money back?
First, I hope you have a great trip! Second, that's not a problem- the group lives on Facebook, so you'll be able to check in and watch videos. If you're going to somewhere that has no internet access, you can always write a post early and submit it for editing. You'll get your Quick Edit the following Monday.
In regards to "getting some money back", you are solely responsible for your business decisions, and no refunds will be granted.
Are you available for other editing or copy help?
Sure am! Editing begins at $285 per page, and full copy writing services begin at $625. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to chat if you'd like to chat more.
*Who's Mr. Lightbulb, you ask? Why, it's none other than Thomas Alva Edison, sugah dumplin'. While I realize that Mr. Edison had help on the way to developing the lightbulb, his name is on the patent for the first practical and long-lasting lightbulb, so we're going to give him the nod for both the lightbulb and the quote. Cue the shooting star and "The More You Know!" music.
