We’re half way through the new year (yep, time flies!). Now let me ask you, if you were to get a report card today for you blog, what would it look like? Would you have a “A+” for post frequency? A “B-” in writing good titles? A “C-” in SEO?
How would you even know what to look for in critiquing your own blog? What would you know to improve on?
It’s a 31 Day Challenge (put together by Darren Rowse) aimed at helping you improve your blog one day at a time. It’s a downloadable e-book filled with daily tasks and learning lessons for you to turn around and implement to improve your blog (and your marketing). Each day in the project contains:
- A Task – something for you to DO (implement) that day.
- Teaching – each day you’ll be given detailed instruction on both the WHY and the HOW of the task for that particular day.
Some people go through the entire list of exercises day by day. Others go over it one exercise per week. So on and so forth. Well, I thought I’d go over one exercise per day Monday thru Friday (unless you unanimously say otherwise). I’ll post and review a lesson here and review your completed exercises once you’re done. Together, we’ll help each other build a better (Real Estate?) blog.
Who Should Join?
A lot of the folks reading this blog are Real Estate Professionals and Small Business Owners. So, naturally, I’m going to tailor the lessons and examples towards you (this blog’s audience). If you’re in neither of these groups and care to join along anyway, by all means do (I’d love to have your perspective). We’ll kick things off on July 1st with lesson number one.
What does it cost to participate? Nothing! This is absolutely free and open to anyone who wants to join. All you need is to make a commitment to work hard and a willingness to help others as we go through the lessons in the book and offer constructive criticism to helps others improve. You don’t need to purchase the e-book if you don’t want to either, just subscribe below and you’ll get notified each day a new lesson is posted so that you can keep up. Simple as that 🙂
I recommend that you pick up a copy of the e-book so that you can follow along at your own pace and then check in here with the rest of us for daily lessons and exercises! Ultimately, this is a little group project, so I want you to come back and post links to what you’ve done in the comments so that the rest of the community and I can give you feedback 🙂
Lastly, I’ve created a little list here for you to get notified every time a new lesson goes up. Just punch in your name and email below and expect your first email/Action Item to go out July 1st:
So, what do you think? Are you up to the challenge?
