Unfortunately all bloggers are in the same boat over the summer: lower traffic = lower income! I’m not sure about you – but I’d like more income and less work, thank-you-very-much. In light of this dilemma we put together a quick traffic-generator idea last year in June.
Much to my surprise it turned out to be really popular.
But let’s be honest, I’m your WordPress gal, not your content gal. Of course, I know the value of content, we all know that it drives your sites, your blogs and your income! So for this year’s content generator event, I’ve asked a few people to join me.
Before I introduce them, let me be clear – these are experts in their fields, not mentors. I see nothing wrong in mentoring others – passing down what you have learned is valuable and necessary! We should all be mentored and be mentoring, in my opinion. But when it comes to business, I do believe that we should only pay for expertise.
This small but mighty differentiation has made my purchasing decisions a lot easier!
When looking for content experts, I used this criteria:
- content writing was their full-time business
- expertise (not mentorship) available
- some availability to take new clients
I pulled out my wishlist, went through my social media and my contacts, and contacted a few people. I’m so excited that my first choices said YES! These people are generous with their knowledge and have a heart for sharing it with you.
