In less than a month, Every Bitch Should Have A Blog has generated close to 800 views. Thinking back on the days I’d be at my part time job having not slept a wink since I woke up the day before, I can honestly say I would do it again and I look forward to doing it some more.
Well, I cannot say I am looking forward to it. However, the idea of what I am building gives me all of the drive I need to push through. Besides, at the end of this month, I will be able to scale my business and focus on mastering the things that work … and learning more so I can be an optimal position to be a resource for others looking to break into the market.
The following infographic resonated with me and I had to share it. It reminds me of when I graduated Massage Therapy school and people kept referring to me as a “Massuse”. I used to say, “No! I don’t do Happy Endings, nor do I work in a place where my colleagues do. I am a certified Massage Therapist.” In the same respect, I am not an internet marketer. Internet marketers and their unscrupulous marketing ways have tarnished an industry that a lot of people could have used to change their entire life.
I want to be a resource and a support for people who are ready to forget about how they have been scammed or any negative predispositions they may have been exposed to about making money online. I want to empower people to start believing they can still experience life-changing income. For all of that and more, I am willing to bear the expense of running a website and am fine if I never make a red cent. To me and to a lot of others, that just doesn’t sound like an internet marketer.
Next month, there are a lot of different things I have to focus on. I know putting things in writing makes it real and also, I would hate to disappoint any audience I may have no matter how small it is. So, here is a glimpse into what I have planned.
My Target Audience
Next month, I dig down deep and really define my target audience. I have always known who I am trying to reach, but reaching them is a bit challenging. In order to reach my target market, I have to depart from teaching people how to make money online and dive into my interests. So next month, you are going to learn a lot about me because a lot of the people that make up my target market do and like the same things I do. Most importantly they have the same problems I have.
I work in retail. I work in retail and I am over 30 but not in management. I am low income. I did not complete college. I am black. I am a lesbian. I am a black lesbian. I am single. I am single because I got cheated on a few years ago and getting back into dating is weird. I am short. I am an Aries. I never learned the value of a dollar. I love sneakers. I love shopping, even though I do not have the money, but I make it work. I have 3 best friends so I guess you can say I am a home girl. I am into fitness. I would like to gain weight and maybe start lifting.
In other words, I want to target the audience that can relate to what I do and who I am in real life. Why would I try to target people to help that aren’t interested in the same thing as me or have the same problems as me? So expect to see a lot of not technical posts that you will enjoy reading.
Growing My Audience On My Social Networks
This is my challenge for the month of April. PSA: My birthday is in April. My challenge this month is to increase my social engagements and audience by more than 100% over this month without using paid advertising techniques.
I really suck at FaceBook and Twitter. I think a lot of people are still confused about Google+ and Pintrest is slowly gaining momentum. I am totally comfortable with Instagram although I can do way better than I have been doing. I have different challenges on each network. I do not post enough on FaceBook and I have no engagement. Same is true for Twitter. Pintrest will not be a super focus, but it will be in May, so I will do what I can. Instagram is fine except for I need to be out and about and showing my audiences that I get a chance to experience life from time to time.
With Facebook and Twitter being such a struggle, if you could find it in your heart to like my FaceBook page and maybe even follow me on Twitter, I would be so happy. Honestly, you would be doing me a favor because there is nothing exciting there … I am going to be diligently working to change that. I’d like to open up discussions and really start connecting with new people. I love discussions.
There are a lot of people that would happily pay $5 for a consultation or life coaching session. Even though both sessions are worth way more, I do not care. People need empowerment and they need support when it comes to hardships they are enduring. For that reason, in April, I am launching 2 Fiverr gigs. One will be a consultation for an online business and the other will be a life coaching session.
This is definitely something you want to be around for when it drops. If you join my email list you will be the first to know when I start my Gigs that are exclusive to Fiverr and my personal inner circle.
Since next month is going to be way more efficient than this month, my first month, I plan to dedicate the extra hours I have to learning more about web development. I want to make sure that people are having a good time when they come to my site. I want my site to continually strive for a professional and clean appearance.
Also, I want to make sure I make it easy for people to connect with me and get content from my site and into the hands of people they know can use the information.
