5 steps to quickly create relationships with potential partners


Partnering is important in your business. You can’t grow it alone. But how do you get to know people so you can work with them?

You should be developing relationships all the time. Try to have 1-2 partnership meetings a week, preferably video meetings. Not all will work out, but a few will be the basis for growing your business.

This post isn’t about what you need to have in place to be ready to partner. That’s something else. No, this is about how to quickly create relationships once you’re ready.

You probably know who they are. They’re the well-known people in your field — and the not-so-well-known ones, too. Some of them are your competitors and that’s OK. But to find more, just Google what you would Google to find yourself. For example, online business coach, holistic health coach, time-management speaker, etc.

Then make a list of people you want to get to know.

Here are the 5 steps…

How to use guest blogging to get traffic to your website


stockunlimited-fist-bump-agreement-1862783 You have amazing content. You’re on the right social media platforms. Your clients love your work and you have awesome products. But for some reason, you just can’t get the traction that you want.

If this is happening to you, it might be that you simply need more traffic. After all, if customers don’t know your product exists, then they can’t buy it. That’s where guest blogging can be helpful.

Guest blogging is a simple way to partner with another blogger to get traffic and build backlinks to your website. If you appear on a major blog, you could easily double or triple your traffic. More targeted traffic means more visitors discover your brand, join your mailing list, and buy your products. That’s a win for you!

The bloggers who host your post also benefit. They get unique content for their blogs. This saves them time and helps them fill in their content marketing calendar. Plus, they introduce someone new to the community, which boosts authority status.

With guest blogging, the audience wins, too. They get to read quality content from a trusted source with a slightly different perspective. They also find a new niche leader to follow and favorite.

Now that you understand how guest blogging is a triple win, it’s time to tackle a big question…

How do I get someone to publish my guest post?

Get traffic by speaking on podcasts



Your whole business starts with reaching more people. That means one thing — getting people to your website.

Are you finding that people who come to your website without any other introduction generally don’t subscribe to your list or buy anything from you? That’s pretty typical because they don’t know enough about your or your business to make a purchasing decision.

Customers need to feel a connection with online business owners before they make a decision to buy. Blogging and content marketing are great ways to start building your relationship, but consumers want to know that you really care.

The benefit of being a podcast guest

That’s where speaking comes in. People can connect with you more fully when they hear you speak. Let’s talk about how you can bring people to your website by speaking on podcasts and other online venues. Podcasting is a great way to start for 2 reasons: Read More
