16 Feb 6 Reasons to Hire a Blog Coach
At the start of the New Year many bloggers decide to set new goals for their site’s traffic, social media followers and desired brands they’d like to collaborate with. To make those goals a reality, you may think it’s time to hire a blog coach. Keep reading for insight on where to find a blogging coach, as well as the typical results you can expect in “6 Reasons to Hire a Blog Coach.”
1. You’re NOT getting the same opportunities to work with brands or attend events – as your colleagues. This is not about “jealousy” or admiration. You’re looking for growth and opportunities for your blog, but they’re just not coming. A blogging coach can give you an objective critique that can show you why you may not be getting selected. Remember to formally join The Niche Parent Network for sponsored opportunities and events.
2. You set blogging goals and rarely achieve them. This is a sign that you need action items and tasks to tackle. Once your coach gives you direction and a to-do list, consider going to fiverr.com to hire an assistant or researcher. They can complete tasks and projects for as little as $5. Be sure to read the reviews before you hire someone.
3. Your traffic, subscribers and followers are stagnant. A blog coach can recommend ways to grow your following genuinely without buying followers or hosting non-stop giveaways. An experienced coach will help you identify your core audience, serve them and showcase your expertise.
4. You need connections. Blog Coaches have connections to other resources you need to raise your blogging profile, like public relations specialists and blog designers.
5. Blogging groups are not helping you grow. Although groups can be extremely beneficial for new bloggers to learn tips about promoting your posts of getting access to sponsored posts.
6. You’d like to become a blog coach. If your friends and family members ask you a lot of questions about blogging, but you don’t feel comfortable coaching them (yet), a blogging coach can give you guidance on the direction you can take. Many experienced bloggers create a separate site to separate their creative content and blogging expertise.
If you’re worried about the expense of one-on-one coaching, see if your ideal blogging coach or mentor sells an e-book. If they offer n e-course you can take online, you’ll have the ability to progress at your own pace. Your coach may also host a mastermind group or offer group coaching.
