I blogged last week about getting an email from a nice lady who was feeling VERY frustrated and completely STUCK in getting going with her online business.
It’s a common question.
Matter of fact I get it regularly.
I don’t know why this time was different but instead of doing the standard “Oh hi that sounds like a personal coaching question! If you’d like to know more about my coaching services you can look here: XXX”. That’s the standard response people are often told to make so that you’re not spending time coaching people for free through your email.
And it’s good advice but I find when I do it that way I send the person on their way never to return again.
What if instead you can turn already engaged people who email you for help into customers?
I figured I’d replay to “A”, as I’ve called her, and ask for a few more questions and tell her I’d answer hers if she allowed me to post it publicly on my blog. She agreed and then I had a REAL question by a REAL person which I gave a REAL answer to. It’s much better than making up something hypothetical to answer and blog about.
That blog post was then sent to my email list and shared in multiple ways on social media.
I got a big thank you from A and we went about our business.
… that is until a few days later when I offer my crazy-good-priced Website by Friday deal and I see a new payment from A.
I didn’t plan for this to happen, obviously.
I didn’t know that my offering help that initially benefited us both would then turn into paid work.
But it did.
Blogging clearly got me this result.
I wanted to share that with you in case you think blogging won’t help, that it’s a dead medium that is mostly useless. It’s not.
Matter of fact this is just one piece of the blogging picture. There’s LOTS more and I’m so super excited to be sharing with you tips, suggestions and HELP for blogging. It’s our current topic of the month for the Laptop Lifestyle Business Club and it’s one of my favorite things to do in business. I think, if you give blogging the chance, you’ll find the benefits are incredible!
