I get a lot of requests from small business owners looking to improve their online brand. For those not in the know, blogging is one of the easiest ways to build a online profile, and in comparison to paying an SEO company or marketing expert to do it, the return on your money is phenomenal.
The problem of course is one of scale. What might work for a larger company isn't always feasible for the budget of an owner/entrepreneur. There's also the question of community, as I find a lot of people are excited to start blogging, but can't keep it up without support.
So the result, is the first St Louis Business Blogging Bootcamp. I'm going to work with 5 companies to show them how to use blogs to increase sales, referrals, and their online presence.
The classes will be conducted online using GoTo Meeting and in-person when necessary, and will be a six week course (one class a week) on how to set up and run a blog.
I need businesses that aren't competitive, and in some ways are complementary. Some great examples would be real estate, b-to-b sales, b-to-c sales, a recruiter, a car dealer, a furniture store, a mortgage company, and a professional services company like an accountant or financial services person.
I'm hand-picking the class for best fit, and will run other classes in the future, but if you think this is you, contact me through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
