10 Things I Did Right When I Launched My Blog
1. Investing in a good ebook cover for my free report.
You might argue this was a useless expense and I could have created a cool ebook cover without a designer (at least, I think it’s cool and since this is my blog, you better believe it). You might even be right with your own opinion – except I only paid $5 on Fiverr for the ebook cover. I’m happy with this deal because it helps people imagine what they are getting. But to tell the truth, I still have to split test it vs. no cover on the opt-in box and see which one wins. Another great site I used to create ebook covers was adazing.com.
2. Reaching out to people in my industry or niche.
This is something I have learned and fully understood when I started my beverage startup. You have to be connected in your industry. This will make things a lot easier. Not everybody will receive you with open arms. That’s life. But the great news is that most people are extremely friendly and willing to help. Linkedin is a great tool to achieve this. I have found most of my interview partners on LinkedIn.
