I have put together helpful resources which I wish I came across when I started my business, blogging and design journey a year ago. I have collected links, podcasts and videos that I grouped into 3 sections – BLOGGING & SOCIAL MEDIA, BUSINESS and INSPIRATIONAL STORIES.
BLOGGING AND SOCIAL MEDIA
I discovered Grace Bonney and her blog Designsponge by listening to her being interviewed on Jess Lively Show. From the start she made a lot of sense and you can tell by listening to her that she has loads of experience and is willing to share it. I really enjoy her podcasts which are very interesting and informative. This podcast, in particular, is for anyone who is struggling with getting ideas for their blog content and how to make the content structured and most effective. A must listen material!
Again from Grace Bonney, this episode covers social media basics, each platform pros and cons and why you should be online present on those platforms.
I discovered Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income website and podcast quite recently so I have a lot to catch up on but I found this particular episode very helpful. As a new-ish blogger I find that generating traffic to my blog is one of the biggest challenges. So this episode is for anyone who struggles to find and increase their audience. A must listen material!
Again from Pat Flynn. This time talking to Laura Roeder about social media tactics. This is the latest most updated podcast on social media I found so far so the information is very current. A must listen material!
This podcast episode is by The Fizzle Show which I listen to regularly. It covers the issue of whether it is harder to enter the blogging game now than when it was in its infancy. All answers are there if you listen to it. And no, it’s never too late! But there are some great tips on how to make your content interesting and epic.
A great resource website for WordPress and Blogger users.
A must MUST resource for any small business owner. Lots of great information and tips on how to run your biz. From generating sales, web design, online presence, to marketing, staff issues. Anything you need help with. Just one big resource which will help your blog or business to grow. Maria Forleo is very funny too. There are so many videos which I find so brilliantly useful but here are my top 3s:
Another great resource for any business owner. Looking at business and consumer’s behaviour from a psychological point of you.
My favourite video is:
Jess Lively and her “The Lively Show” was the first podcast I ever listened to. Every week she invites interesting guests from all walks of life and talks to them about their journey, their ups and downs and any advice they can give. A must listen material to get inspired.
