These are a new style of workshop that digs deep into the practical strategies of blogging for your business.

We’re not going to tell you that it’s important to blog for your business. You already know that. You know that a blog can attract ideal customers, lead to higher fees, expert status and authority in your industry.

But just HOW do you use your blog to do that?

  • How can a blog make clients approach you (because they want to work with YOU)?
  • How do you get your business exposed to an audience of your ideal customers?
  • How do you write blog posts that promote what you do and make you shine WITHOUT the hard sell?
  • How do you figure out your content strategy so you’re not overwhelmed

That’s what we’re going to cover in this workshop in London for an intimate group of driven business owners, entrepreneurs, coaches and freelancers.

Why aren’t more people rocking it when it comes to business blogging?

It doesn’t matter how many articles you publish on your blog, you’re wasting your time if it isn’t giving you the things you really want for your business (or freelance career) which is:

  • Increased traffic to your site (from your target market)
  • More enquiries
  • More sales
  • More exposure of your business (to the RIGHT  people)

And we find that when people are struggling to get those results with their blog, there are 2 main challenges:

  • Not knowing how to write a great blog post
  • Not knowing how to use the blog to create an income into the business

That’s why we designed this workshop to tackle these key problems. And because we really want to dive into your business and be on hand, we decided to find the next soonest dates that we were both in the country so we could deliver this workshop to you and in person.

“Before working with Natalie, I felt overwhelmed by all the things I was supposed to do to start generating revenue from my blog; I had no idea where to start. Natalie provided a focused plan and step-by-step coaching that proved pivotal to my success. Her experience and expertise are invaluable, not to mention she’s a delight to know and talk to! On a clear path now, I have landed guest posts on major blogs, doubled my email list, expanded my online coaching clientele, and written my first ebook all in the 5 months we’ve been working together. I’m now generating more revenue than our original goal without compromising my message (which was my main goal). Natalie was the catalyst I needed to reach the next level of my blogging career.” ~ Amy Clover,  Strong Inside Out

The object of the training we’ve had from Amy, is how to think carefully about structuring our content for our websites. The British council has quite a wide offer and Amy has been helping us with focus, she’s been telling us how to structure our content and how to be very clear with what the goals are that we’re trying to achieve. I’ve had a fantastic time with Amy, she obviously knows her stuff completely, and it’s very impressive working with someone with such a great smile! Thank you very much! ~ David Blundell, Global social media manager at the British Council

What do you need to qualify for this workshop?

This workshop is accessible to most people who have a business and want to use their blog to really make an impact on their business. Because we’ll be focusing on strategic “how-to” blogging elements, for you to experience the full value of this you need to have a blog that is linked to your business (or is about to be), know how to publish posts, and if you’re familiar with plug-ins and widgets all the better (but not essential).

Where is it being held?

We’ve picked a cracking little venue just a 2  minute walk from Covent Garden Tube Station in London. The area is vibrant, bustling and full of energy which is exactly how we’re planning the day to be.

Amy helped me to get past the mindset road blocks I had around offering something I had created to the world. She helped me to truly understand my product & its direct benefits (at an emotional level) for my customers, to accept that it is not ‘unprofessional’ to write in a conversational tone (as I was taught in my days as a lawyer) & to write in a conversational tone skillfully. I am comfortable to project in a way that helps my clients to make a decision but which doesn’t leave them feeling “sold to”. ~ Jen Brown, Sparta Personal Training
