Marketing Tips That Don’t Work

As bloggers and online marketers we all learn about the “should dos” to become successful and/or reach financial freedom but what about marketing tips that don’t work for you. We are told: Be organized, stick to schedules, set your goals, work long and hard, move out of our comfort zones …. Buy this and automate that, join and post to multiple social media sites, join forums and communities,  build an email list, optimize for search engines, watch this video, attend this webinar…. Do things this way not that,  blog at least once, twice, three times a week, keep your posts […] Continue Reading…

Sueblimely Succinctly Summarizing

Opportunitiy to Help Quote Sally Koch

I haven’t yet finished the new theme design for sueblimely.com but it was time to make some changes. I want to point them out to make you aware of what’s new, especially the bits intended to increase my income.   Now I’ve probably put you off looking but at least I’m being honest. I’ve decided to go with the Genesis framework for my new design but, as usual, I haven’t found an “out of the box” child theme that suits me. So I’m building one from scratch. If anyone is interested, I’ll talk about why I chose Genesis in a […] Continue Reading…

It’s easy for me to use the sort of positive words I spoke of in my last post, when it comes to small, friendly, blogging communities where members offer mutual support, motivation and inspiration. Here are two which are, at present, accepting some new members. They is a wonderful for increasing your blog comments,  getting to know fellow bloggers and developing more contacts and business leads. Both are run via Facebook Groups. Members, rotate through a small sub-group of blogs each week. We are required to comment on a post of each member in our current sub-group, plus 2-3  featured […] Continue Reading…

When you’re competing with so many others, how do you write absolutely compelling blog posts that make yours stand out? Even if you are writing about a topic that’s already been extensively covered you can still create unique content, because you are unique.

Follow Buttons Free Download

free social follow buttons for blogs

When I come across a blog with content that interests me I’m always keen to follow the writers on their social media networks. That’s not possible if there are no follow buttons. Here are some WordPress Follow Plugins but if you don’t want to add any more resource hungry plugins I’ve included a free download of Follow Button Images and full instructions to add them to your site. A blogger may have plenty of contacts, followers or likes on their social media profiles and pages but who better to attract than those interested in what you write on your blog.

Facebook Image Sizes Timeline Newsfeed

Facebook Image Sizes -Landscape 470px x 394px

Yes, this is another post about Facebook Image Sizes. You’ve probably read some before so why read this too?  Firstly, this post only talks about images you post to your Timeline and those included when you post a link. The main reason is that most posts I’ve read aren’t very clear and the infographics you see are even more confusing. I hope to make your life easier by giving you examples. To have the most impact, your Timeline and Newsfeed images need to fill up the area available without being cropped. Unless you want to encourage your viewers to click […] Continue Reading…

website header head with brand

By “Brand Your Head” I’m talking about your website or blog header, although walking around with your blog url on your forehead is an interesting promotional idea. I’ve explored a lot of the new responsive WordPress themes which only have a thin website header with a logo, or site title, and navigation menu all on one row. They’re great if you have an easily recognizable, unique logo or blog title, which everyone identifies with you or your unique product(s). (or if you’re promoting something that you don’t want to be recognized for!). Very few bloggers and/or marketers have an unmistakable […] Continue Reading…
