Blogging is arguably one of the most effective marketing tools that you can use for your business. It’s what can make your company stand out from the crowd in what can sometimes be a very crowded marketplace. If done correctly blogging can take your business from average to amazing in a relatively short period of time. So why would you use a blogging coach to help you?
If we want to be good at something then we get help normally. For example if you want to get fit you hire a personal trainer or if you want to learn a new language you take a class. Basically if you want to know how to do something you get someone to help you.
Is A Blogging Coach Right For Your Business?
- Do you want a lot more traffic to your website?
- Do you want people to see you as an expert in what you do?
- Have you been blogging for some time but don’t get a lot of traffic organically to your website?
- Do you need support to understand how to blog and what to blog about?
If any of these apply to your circumstances then you probably need the help of a blogging coach.
What Does A Blogging Coach Do?
I’d be the first to say that everyone is a coach these days. It seems that someone starts a business and then next they become a coach. It is not necessarily a bad thing but it’s probably more important now to make sure that you check out what you are getting for your money before you sign up for a coaching programme.
Are you getting long term support? My view is that you really can’t do much in an hour – so a long term commitment is required to truly change the way you blog.
Is there backup while you are learning? Can you contact the coach at any time to ask questions or is contact restricted to coaching hours.
Is the person actually working in the field and practising what they are coaching? Unless you’ve done it yourself how much can you really coach others about it.
Is the course/programme outlined for you? Before you start you want to know what you are going to be learning each week and how everything will be delivered. Will it be done online or by phone? Will you be given examples to follow so you know what you need to do?
What Should Blogging Coaching Include?
There are lots of things that a blogging coach should cover when you work with them. Including, but not limited to:
- Discovering who your ideal customer is
- Creating a plan of topics to blog about
- Teaching you how to plan to market your business
- Showing you how to write a blog post
- Learning the techniques to share your posts
- Email marketing to get your blogs in front of clients
- Creating Ebooks from your blogs
How Much Does A Blogging Coach Cost?
Coaching varies depending on the coach. You see coaches that charge a few dollars per hour to thousands per month. If you are considering a coach though you should make sure the coach is delivering exactly what you need for your business.
