A Little Overwhelmed? Here Are Some Top Tips To Help…

Hey there awesomness!!

Getting started on something new can be super exciting, but yet at the same time a little overwhelming with so much information right at your fingertips, and not knowing where to start. I’ve experienced this myself, just recently..hence it prompting me to write this post, so I have put together some tips that you can do that should help you get into the groove of things and ease your frustration with getting started on something new.

Tips to overcome that overwhelming feeling of starting out something new….

Join a Facebook group or fan club and connect with people with similar interests.

Join a Google+ Community – there are loads of them, and people enjoy sharing ideas and will love help you out.

Look for tutorials on the internet. – There’s a “tute” (as I like to call them) for just about everything, on YouTube and on the internet.

Keep positive!! – Remind yourself regularly why you are doing this, constantly thinking of your “Why” will help to keep you motivated and pumped to keep going and not throw in the towel because you think it might be all a little too much.

Listen to Podcasts – there are loads of them on the internet and in iTunes. Podcasts are really useful when unsure of what you are doing, and perhaps wanting a little advice, like tutorials, there are stacks of Podcasts on just about any topic you can think of.

Take a browse through Pinterest – Pinterest is a great place to get a little inspired, and perhaps loose yourself just a little while you browse around dream a little!

Have you joined Twitter yet? – if not do so, and search for people with similar interests…e.g if you are starting out in social media marketing, look for twitter users to follow that tweet about social media marketing. I’ve made the majority of my social media friendships through twitter, it really is a good place to connect with like-minded peeps, once you get the hang of how to use it.

Be easy on yourself – know that you don’t have to be an instant success overnight…as much as you might so badly want to, you need to give yourself time to understand your new goal, and some days you might be on a roll and other days you might just feel a little overwhelmed again…what ever your feeling, it’s totally ok, there is no race to the finish line here. Just focus on one thing at a time if you need to, knowing that every little thing you do, will push you even closer to achieving your goals.

Surprisingly Easy Ways to Increase Traffic to Your Blog and Promote Posts

speaker man

Ok…so you’ve written a really great blog post, but how do you encourage people to read your blog, and gain more awesome followers?

Here are some surprisingly easy tried and tested ways of increasing traffic and getting more readers of your posts:

Tweet your posts: Sending your posts out to twitter is  a great way of engaging more readers, and there’s absolutely no harm in tweeting your post a few or more times throughout the course of a day, to get your word out there.

Post to Facebook: Don’t forget your friends and readers on facebook. Include an image on your post and check different times of the day to see when your readers click on your links.

Pinterest: Another fun and very popular social platform, not to forget. Pimp up your post with a funky image and pin, and reach out to other pinners and re-pin any of their pins you find fun or interesting, by doing this, they are likely to return the favor by checking out a few of your pins re-pinning them to their wall, and hence driving readers to your blog.

StumbleUpon: An oldie but a goodie. Install a StumbleUpon toolbar on your browser, and post your posts to StumbleUpon. It’s a great way of reaching readers beyond regular means, and as the name goes, readers will simply ‘StumbleUpon’ your posts.

Google+ : Google+ has become a very powerful and popular social media sharing platform. Let people in your circles know about your posts, and even ask for feedback if you wish, and create a circle of your own, invite your friends and followers to it and let others know about your circle – send out tweets to twitter and let your friends on facebook know about your circle…get the word out there!

Email: Email newsletters to your readers. Let your readers know once a week or once a month whats going on with your blog, -a perfect opportunity to promote specific content.

Invite guest posts: Inviting readers to guest post on your blog works wonders for both you and the guest writer, it draws followers of the guest writer to your blog, that might not have heard of your blog, and readers of your blog to the guest writer’s blog. And reach out to other bloggers and guest post on their blog too.

Create a free download to share with your readers: Gather a collection of your favorite posts, and put together an e-book for your readers to download and share with others. – Everyone loves a freebie!

Write content that solves issues: Just like this article is solving the issue of traffic flow, write an article to help solve a problem. Teaching people how to do things is a good way of creating more readers, and if they like the post, they are more thank likely going to want to share it with their readers!

Have a catchy headline: I can not express enough how important a headline is to the reader, after all, it’s usually what grabs the reader’s attention in the first place. Be daring and be original, look at the titles of other similar posts, to get a few ideas if you are stuck.

Feature another blogger: Interview your favorite mentors..it’s great exposure for the both of you, and they will be honored that you are featuring them in your blog!  – a win, win!!

– They are just a few..Have you got any ideas you could add?

sharing is caring people

Thank you so much for reading! Got any thoughts/comments? I would love to hear from you! Wishing you every success in all you do…love hugs always…Katrina xx 🙂

You’ve Gotta love Social Media…

Hi there..well here’s to my 3rd post!  and I think I’m getting the hang of things. I quite enjoy writing my posts, and truly appreciate any comments and feedback on all my posts. I really think social media today has really evolved and is taking off more than ever, thanks to the genius “techno heads” that invented the Android tablets,  iPad, and you can even access you’re favorite social media platform on your mobile phone..it really makes life so much more simple, and enjoyable! – I mean how good is it that you can take your work with you anywhere, you can sit in a nice quite park and work or even in a coffee shop, and you don’t have to lug around a bulky or heavy laptop, – It certainly makes business for any blogger a lot more simpler.

Thanks to Social Media, I have met some really amazing people. The great thing about Social Media is that you can use them both for business and leisure, and are an awesome way of connecting with people, whether it’s for business or leisure.

Here’s a good example of just why I love Social Media so much, and think it should play a crucial part in any business… 🙂
