I don't want clients, what about me?
Not everyone wants to bring in new customers. You may want to use your web presence to build your credibility and enhance your visibility.
Maybe you are running as a local councillor or you are fundraising for a charity/community group.
You can add your social media accounts to your WordPress website and use your blog to write about your current activities and campaigns.
Maybe your blogging business needs to be developed so it can attract advertisers and/or sponsors.
Whether you are looking to be found within a local area and/or to build a blogging business that you can develop and earn revenue from, then we can help you with that
Do I need a domain name?
No. If your business is new and you don’t have a domain name that’s fine, you can use our url. Your blog will be YOURBUSINESS.influencer.biz. Of course we recommend you buy a domain name and are happy to help you choose one that will be right for your local business. In the meantime join anyway and get your site up.
Can I join if I already have a WordPress blog
Yes. If you have a blog on wordpress.com or a self-hosted WordPress blog you can download your existing content and upload it to your new WordPress website on this platform. Help is available to do that should you need it.
It is quite expensive, isn't it?
If you find paying a monthly fee to run your blogging business is too expensive, save money and pay less by subscribing for 3 or 12 months.
Remember, in exchange for your monthly fee we are going to help you find new customers, bring in work to your business and ensure experts in your field (e.g. food, fitness, beauty etc) find you by carrying out search engine optimisation.
How much is a new customer worth to you? Is it worth paying our monthly fee in exchange for a new customer?
As a micro business you may work alone without employees and maybe you work from home too. How much time are you spending trying to work out how to do simple things on your WordPress website (if you have one)?
Is it worth the monthly fee to know help is always on hand when you need it? We help you create your WordPress website and if you get really stuck we may even do a few bits for you.
Very few business owners succeed without investing in their business. Your monthly subscription is an investment in you and your blogging business.
Will I definitely get new clients
We can’t make any promises about exactly what will happen, how quickly or how many. What we do know is if we follow a set of proven blogging practices and procedures the search engines will love you.
One of those practices our business blogging platform recommends is to add quality content.
Content that people will enjoy reading and sharing. Content can be images, video or written. As long as you are willing to create content we are willing to use search engine optimisation to ensure that content gets found.
That is what we promise to do for you.
How long it takes is, unfortunately, different for everyone and in the hands of Google and the other search engines.
What we do know is that members who blog CONSISTENTLY (minimum 3 times a week) see results within their first three months and then receive ongoing enquiries after that.
The great thing is everything you write will be around for YEARS. Unlike an advert in your local paper that is around for a week and then disappears your great content will help you get found over and over again.
I sell products. Is this for me?
Absolutely. Whether you sell services or products our platform can help you promote your business online using your WordPress website.
Even if you sell soap or you are promoting your self-published book the membership fee is such great value that its worth investing in it just to enjoy the support and peace of mind you will experience. Plus the search engine optimisation service you receive each month makes this membership a high value one.
Not only might you sell your products but you may also receive enquiries from people looking for an expert in your field.
When you are generously sharing what you know stuff like that happens. An opportunity to speak, a chance to be interviewed, these are the ‘extras’ that come from having an optimised online profile.
I have a website, can I just have a WordPress blog?
Yes. You can create a WordPress blog on this platform and link back to your website. It is always better to have your blog on your own hosting with your website but if that is not possible, or if you just like the support we offer on here, you can create a blog on this platform and use it to drive visitors to your website.
I just wanted to let you know that I got my first PR enquiry for VA Bella Beauty today from a company who is organising a pamper day event at The Mall [Luton] on Sunday. They found my blog and contacted me to take part in the fashion sessions on the day. They are even going to pay me for the day.
You get a professional looking WordPress website with ongoing support and maintenance. Need help with writing your content. No problem. Not sure about how best to optimise your site and content. No problem, because we do that bit for you. Something not working? Get in touch. Got a WordPress support question? Get it answered.
Everything you need to ensure you enjoy fast and reliable support, plus help with other aspects of running your WordPress website is included in your membership.
This WordPress business blog platform is run by a qualified digital marketing specialist who knows what it takes to get found online.
You need a business blog that the search engines bring up in the search results not only when people are looking for a service/product but also when a company/mainstream media are looking for an expert on a particular topic.
