When was the last time you looked at your client onboarding process? Or perhaps considered the emails that you are sending to your client at each point of their project? Do you have a system? Or are you writing this material on the fly?
I have recently started using a new list building strategy and I have to say, I am seeing some great results and it was a heap of fun to build. I recently built my very first quiz! If you haven’t seen it yet, you can take my what kind of Brand It Girl are you? Quiz here!
In this episode of the Brand It Girl Podcast, we unlock the secrets to successful networking and business friends for ladybosses who work from home. I used to suffer rather deeply from loneliness and isolation inside my business. I felt like no one understood what I was doing and that they didn’t appreciate how hard I work every single day. It wasn’t until I really started to network and make business relationships that some of these feelings started to go away.
We are bringing back friend to the show, Haley Burkhead from Market Beautifully on this episode of the Brand It Girl Podcast to dive into a hot topic: monetizing your list. The term ‘monetizing your list’ is a bit trendy these days. We hear it a lot, but what does it actually mean and how do you do it? We will be answering all those questions in this episode!

In March 2017 I hosted the Ladyboss Breakthrough Summit.

We are kicking off the new Brand It Girl podcast this week and I am so very excited to be sharing it with you!! I have so much good stuff planned for you all centred around online business and marketing, branding, blogging, social media, ladyboss mindset and strategies and tactics that will grow your business in no time!
I am very excited to be sharing all the different ways you can use the Squarespace Image blocks. Squarespace has just added a variety of different ways to use the Image block and I am super excited, it's actually made my job as a designer easier!!
So in this blog post, I will be showing you the different types and how you can change the way that they look to match your brand.
When you are an online business owner, taking a break can seem completely impossible. I get it! You are everything inside your business, so taking time off literally means your business comes to a halt while you are resting - especially when you are starting out or if you don't have a team. When your business is your main or only source of income it really isn't an option to stop and sip the mojitos.
I feel like this constantly, but I also know that traveling and taking semi regular breaks is important. At the moment, I take a big (like four weeks off) trip every one and half to two years and then two or three smaller weekend away trips each year and this seems to be keeping me sane! It's important that you listen to your body and know in yourself when you need a little break. For me, taking a break is vital and actually serves to inspire new ideas and renewed energy for my business.
But, as I said, going off the grid is not really possible when you are running your own show. So how do you make working work while on vacation?
I am very excited to have Britt Hyatt from Home Sweet Hyatt Studios on the blog this week talking about Squarespace SEO myths and how to optimize your website for SEO so that you are getting as much attention for your website as possible!
I will let Britt dive in, but just in case you don't know what SEO is, it stands for Search Engine Optimization and this essentially measures how easily your website or blog will be found on search engines like Google and Pinterest.
Many of you would know that I am a big fan of Squarespace, well so is Britt and she really helps us in this post to dispel the myths surrounding Squarespace when it comes to SEO. Some say that Squarespace puts you at a disadvantage with SEO but as you're about to see, that's simply not the case!
So I'll hand over to Britt and don't forget to download the freebie for this post: Squarespace SEO Keywords - it will make all the words and phrases we use make sense!
I know that it can feel painful to invest in training programs and ecourses, especially when you are just starting out and cash flow might be low or you might not know who to trust with your hard earned dollars and your precious time. It can be scary and sometime you really don't know what you need to learn first or what strategy will actually help you to achieve your goals. And in many cases there's a multitude of people telling you to do this or that and it's just overwhelming right?
You start to think that just grabbing free courses would be a good idea, or perhaps don't even worry about that and spend your time surfing the web in search for blogs that answer your questions and give you clues as to what to do next.
This could be costing you more than you think.
