Blog Update – Month 2.
Smart Digital Coaching
When I set up Smart Digital Coaching, I had a clear idea of what I wanted to achieve.
Firstly, I have always been interested in business and helping people achieve, so I want to use my knowledge and skills to help other businesses to take control and expand using digital marketing techniques.
Secondly, I wanted to produce a blog that pulls all the elements of business digital marketing together and uses affiliate marketing as the main income generator I wanted to explore how far I can grow both the blog and its income.
It takes a lot of work to make a blog successful and I wanted to see what was involved in that and how realistic it can be.
So into month 2 with Smart Digital Coaching. I really have not pushed the coaching side yet as I want to grow the blog having at least 30 plus posts on it by the end of March.
Not sure I will achieve that though.
When I first thought about Smart Digital Coaching the blog, I was going to build and develop out small niche sites like “everythingemailmarketing.uk’ to support the pillar articles on the main blog.
Having explored that I conclude that I am better off placing all the content on one blog. So that is where I am moving to.
One of the hardest things I am encountering at the moment is getting accepted into affiliate programs. As a new blog, it is hard to prove your worth. I am not giving up though, I am trying to sign up for more relevant programmes every day or so.
I am currently signed up to 21 affiliate programs – and as yet no commissions – but it is very early days.
I have started getting some traffic which is encouraging (see the report below).
There are two things I have done this month. One is I have researched long-tail keywords and have started to use an AI content builder to start publishing those on the blog. My strategy is to write Pillar posts with 5 low competition keyword posts linking to the pillar post.
I will be both syndicating and building links to each post.
The second thing I have started doing is to syndicate all the content to various social media, bookmarking and blog sites.
I need to start a guest posting schedule – but that can be expensive and takes time but I want to start outreach this month.
One thing I have decided is to concentrate fully on Smart Digital Coaching and really see how far I can go with it.
