Do you need a simple, repeatable system for creating blog posts, articles, about-me pages, and even newsletters that consistently connect, provide great value and promote engagement?
Your writing can attract wonderful clients, communicate your passion for what you do, and help establish you as a leader in your field. Once you learn this system, you could even create ALL of your posts fornext year before this year is over, even if you don’t know how to write!
How? By learning my simple system and using the templates and trackers I’ve created, you never have to agonize over, “What should I write about?” again.
A Simple System
This system answers all of the time-consuming questions, the main reason you avoid writing blog posts: What to write about, how often to post, how long should they be, what about the people on my email list? What do I do with them? After completing this course, you will be writing 30-minute blog posts, like I did just yesterday!
Created for Holistic Entrepreneurs
My system helps you build trust by including the key elements Connection, Value and Engagement in every post or article. It’s geared toward people like us whose brand is a mixture of authenticity, skill and caring. And that needs to come through in our writing.
Made-for-You Templates, Trackers and Worksheets
You will get completely customizable templates, worksheets and trackers that will give you the topics, tips, takeaways and next steps you will write about for your people. (Hint: You’ll even be able to use these as the basis for your own courses and workshops!)
“You Need To Start Blogging!”
If anyone’s ever said that to you–and you know it’s true–but you haven’t been able to get started and can’t seem to wrap your head around what it is and how to do it, this course is for you.
I know you wouldn’t be here if someone hadn’t told you you need to start blogging. But did they tell you how? How often? The most effective approach to writing these pieces and publishing them? Have you searched the web and found only vague or general guidelines which have to be adapted for what you do, because they’re geared toward bloggers?
One thing’s certain, you’re not a blogger. You’re not writing for clicks or traffic, with sensationalistic headlines promising unbelievable results. You are a holistic practitioner, healer, coach or entrepreneur who cares and wants to connect with and attract the right people–not everyone on the Internet–to your business. You want to make a difference with your writing.
And not knowing how drives you CRAZY.
I know, because I’m one of you. So who am? I’m an occupational therapist who analyzes behavior, motivation and efficiency, a spiritual psychology geek who sees the hero in everyone, an INFJ with a keen eye for emotional states, a believer in good, and an inspirational author.
Obviously, I love to write. I’ve been blogging since a long time ago, and you know what?
All that writing doesn’t amount to much if it doesn’t connect with readers.
Oh sure, sometimes I succeeded in connecting, but the truth is, when I did, I didn’t know why. And when I didn’t, ditto.
All of which created the growing realization that writing is NOT the reason why people who need to blog can’t get started. The reason you can’t get a foothold and get into it is that no one’s presented you with a clear, doable system for creating effective posts –that doesn’t take hour and hours each time you write.
And as an entrepreneur, you’re accustomed to tackling and solving problems by creating things on the fly for what your business needs at that moment. Which is one reason it never occurs to you that writing might be different. No matter how hard you think about it, you can’t see to break through and get the aha that’s going to show you the right approach and get words on your website.
But try telling that to my best friend, a brilliant, holistic gynecology practitioner and energy healer, who’s witchy with hormones and neurotransmitters. She’s convinced she’s just lazy and unmotivated when someone mentions “blogging.” She’s convinced she can’t write.
And that’s where my Ridiculously Simple Writing System comes in. My brilliant friend–who has nothing on her website that reflects her skill, expertise and value to random visitors and potential referrers–is not the only one.
As I interviewed holistic, spiritual and integrative healers and practitioners of all types, I discovered that most of them have no idea where to begin with blogging, and worse yet, some have email lists they’ve amassed and never communicate with them, because they don’t know what to say.
As an Occupational Therapist, seeing people stopped before step one drives me CRAZY!
I realized no one had ever broken it down and created an easy, step-by-step how-to specifically geared toward people like us.
Not only do we have unique needs for our writing, we also need it to be simple and replicable, because we don’t have hours and hours to devote to learning something that isn’t our primary skillset.
Everybody in business today who has a web presence needs to have valuable content on their site that connects with the right people and encourages them to “opt in”–or, say yes– to learning more about us and what we do.
And that’s why I’m so pleased to offer you the opportunity to handle the blogging thing once and for all, so it’s not hanging over your head, so you feel light about it, so that you MASTER it once and for all and get it done.
