Yesterday we wrapped up our first Blog Retreat. It was an amazing time of collaboration, teaching and implementation!
We loved every moment talking with each of you that attended and helping you learn how to take your blogs to the next level.
We see so much potential in each of you, and in every one in our Becky and Paula Blogging group.
Speaking of Minted. . . These notebooks you guys. I got to customize them for the retreat and I’m in love with how they turned out. If you can’t even handle it and need your own with this quote on it you can order them from minted. They just won’t have the custom message we wrote in them *wink*
Or you can sign up for the minted affiliate program here.
La Patisserie sent us an amazing spread of pastries and fruit for breakfast one morning.
I’m still wishing for a repeat of that breakfast!
There was a great view of Lake Norman
We covered everything from affiliate marketing, to writing tone, to the technical side of blogging, writing ebooks, creating products and so much more.
In fact, so many amazing questions were brought up and answered, we decided we needed to do a little something special for our attendees AND those of you who wished you could have made it.
One of the biggest things we talked about was reaching out to brands directly to for ambassadorships and simply to be paid for posting.
Many people asked what it is we emailed to brands and while that’s not something we want live on the internet (wouldn’t that be awkward if a brand read it posted here?) We would love to share that information with you.
Later this week, we are going to be sending out some sample drafts in our newsletter of what we send to brands AND how we negotiate if someone sends us an offer that isn’t QUITE in our price range.
Wishing you could have made it to the retreat? We’re still sharing our TOP tips with you through our ebook, Blogging on the Side. In it we share our secrets for viral posts, blogging with authenticity and making a MASSIVE income with your blog! Get your copy here. (You can also see the outline before you buy!)
