Better Blogging Part 3 With Beckie, Brooke, Me, And Amy (Video)

I just finished an awesome hangout with some SERIOUSLY awesome bloggers (video below). We had a friend of mine – Jason Brooks – come on the show and we helped him with a list of questions:

1.  I want to start driving some real traffic to my site without having to rely on Google.  My feeling is that I need to get serious about Social Media Marketing.  Going after every social media site out there would be a full time job, so what are the best ones to work with and why?

2.  What’s the best way to build a following and establish contact with people in your niche?  Is it simply about searching facebook and liking pages for example?

3.  Once I’ve built a following, how can I best market my site to people using social media?

4.  I plan to put an E-store on my site in the not too distant future, how well do you think social media traffic converts?

5.  Should I monetize my site with something while I wait to set up my e-store and if I do should I continue to monetize after my e-store is setup?

If you’re interested in any of those questions, this video is for you. The people who were there are seriously awesome:

I’ll add the videos of our first two hangouts:



Here’s the creative that Beckie made for the event – thanks Beckie!:

  1. Holy moly!! I didn’t know until just now that Amy’s going to be joining you guys for the next one. I love her! The first two have been great so I’m definitely looking forward to this one. I have a meeting I have to be at, which means I have to catch the youtube video. 🙁

    Also, just read your ebook and am off to share it with several of my Dallas bloggers group. They will love it!

      Hey Jamie! Yeah we’re really excited that Amy is going to be joining us. It’ll be way fun to have her. Thanks for sharing my book and I’m really glad that you liked it. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you out. 🙂

  2. Hey Court, we seem to hang around the same circles, as I caught you on Leslie Samuel’s first BAB hangout as well. You had some great info to share, and I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to say here.
    Read your ebook last night, and it was some really great information. Definitely started implementing some great SEO tools that you had to offer. Now just gotta get going on the guest posting… Scary!

      Haha Holly – yep. I keep running into you! Thanks for stopping by! Yeah…guest posting is definitely scary. It took me a long time to really figure out how to do that well. Relationships really matter a lot when it comes to that. If you are able to make friends and build real relationships in your niche, I think that you’ll find that it’s much easier than it seems.

      Stay in touch and let me know if you have any questions about implementing anything from the book!

  3. nice series but can you do something about the typing during the video? I’ve watched other hangouts and I don’t hear others typing, it’s very distracting.

  4. Automatic Emails you mentioned in the video – I’m interested to know how many, or how long do you continue to send out the auto. emails? You mentioned 3 or 4 weeks. Do you only send 6 or so or do you send every week, on and on ? Also, do you have all written ahead of time or add as you go? I realize some must be written to start the process. Please comment.

  5. Please tell me how to find your eBook.

    Loved the video and hope you will continue to have these. A lot of really great info from all of you. Thanks to each of you.

  6. I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back
    later and see if the problem still exists.

  7. Court,

    I love these three hangouts. I have watched each of them at least twice! I just heard Beckie say at the end of the third hangout (the one with Amy) that you were going to have another hangout on the 17th (January?), and I was wondering if that happened? If so, where can I find it?


  8. Whats up very cool site!! Man .. Excellent .. Wonderful ..
    I’ll bookmark your web site and take the feeds additionally?

    I’m satisfied to find so many helpful info right here within the publish, we’d like work out extra strategies in this regard, thank you for sharing.
