2 Chicks Newsletter – What Is Your Biggest Challenge?

In business, as well as in life, we all face many challenges. Some harder than others.

My biggest challenge lately has been making time to work on my own business.

I have learned in the last few months that when you charge an hourly wage, people (clients) don’t seem to value your expertise and experience as much.

As a result of that lesson, I am working on putting together ‘packages’ for our clients. I believe the result will be beneficial not only to us but for our clients as well.

What is your biggest challenge right now? Can we help?

***Reminder***

We have a really great FREE course which walks you through everything you need to know about building a website with WordPress.

Check it out here!!

BUT we also now have a kind of support group for anyone taking the course.

It will be a FREE FB group where you can ask any techy questions you might have. You can also ask us any questions you have about online marketing.

If this is something that is of interest to you, send us a brief message here with your Facebook email and we will add you to the group!

One of the biggest mistakes people make when working online is trying to go it alone.

You don’t know what you don’t know. This is where we can help.

Last week I issued a challenge – to myself as well! Did you take a whole day off this past week?

I have to confess, I did not. I did take most of Saturday off but ended up doing a little work before bed.

So this week I will try again! lol

Our good friend Katrina Sawa is holding a free webinar on June 7.

She doesn’t have these free webinars often as she has a super busy schedule. BUT when she does, she gives out A LOT of really amazing and actionable content.

Wednesday was the last day for many schools here in Kentucky. My granddaughter graduated from Kindergarten!

All through the school year I have been up at 5 AM and then get the kids up at 6:30 AM.

Today I decided to not set my alarm and just let us all wake up naturally. It makes a big difference sometimes to not hear that annoying buzz of the alarm!

The kids woke in a pretty good mood too!

It’s important to have down time from your work. I’m guilty of this myself. So I am challenging myself to start taking a whole day off at least once a week.

I think this is going to be a hard habit for me to break. lol 🙂

Do you allow yourself downtime? What do you do to relax?

Do you have any plans with your family this summer?

2 Chicks Newsletter – How Facebook Marketing Chatbot fbmeChat Can Boost Your Income

I don’t know if you’ve heard of Facebook Chat Bots – maybe you’ve been living under a rock for the past year.

Some debate that it is too impersonal but let me tell you why Chat Bots can be a massive asset to your business.

If you have a Facebook Business page then you know you are able to receive messages from Facebook users who visit your page.

BUT do you also know that Facebook rates you on your response time and makes that visible to people who visit your page?

So you can use a Facebook Chat Bot to reply automatically to messages and increase your response rate!

But that’s not all you can do with them!

Check out this article by my good friend Tony on PT Job FT Income

If you’re not following him, you should be! 🙂
If you’ve used chat bots before, we’d love to hear bout your experience.

If you haven’t used them and decide to check them out, we’d love to hear about that as well!

2 Chicks Newsletter – Traffic and Backlinks and Influence … Oh My!

I think I’m finally recovered from my multiple trips last month.

I didn’t realize just how tiring it can be!

Now that I feel a bit more like myself, I wanted to start sharing with you a few things I learned at ICON17.

Anyone who tells you backlinks aren’t necessary is someone you probably shouldn’t listen to.

Backlinks one website mentioning another website and linking to it. It is not merely referencing the website or it’s web address. It has to be a clickable link using an href attribute within the code. It is the difference between https://thathelpfulchick.com and That Helpful Chick.

Even though the first example displays a URL, the search engines do not register this as a backlink. They are usually visually seen with an underline and a different color to the text.

Google actually likes backlinks and relies upon them. The whole idea behind them is that they help to tell Google what is good and useful out there.

Web traffic is the amount of data sent and received by visitors to a web site. This is determined by the number of visitors and the number of pages they visit.

Sites monitor the incoming and outgoing traffic to see which parts or pages of their site are popular and if there are any apparent trends, such as one specific page being viewed mostly by people in a particular country. There are many ways to monitor this traffic.

Check out these articles to find out more info on how you should be tracking your traffic and what to do with the data you find.

Social Proof

“Think of it as building the foundation for massively scalable word-of-mouth.”

Learn the 5 Types of Social Proof

Ever walked past a restaurant with a long line outside, and joined the line because you figured that the food was probably pretty good? If everyone is buying it, it can’t possibly be all bad, right?
That’s social proof in action. We form evaluations about something based on the actions of other people.

It works the same for your website. The comments, like and shares are your Social Proof and can have a massive impact on your ranking.
Check out these two statistics revealed by consumer research around American consumers:
  1. Over 70% of Americans say they look at product reviews before making a purchase.
  2. Nearly 63% of consumers indicate they are more likely to purchase from a site if it has product ratings and reviews.

When you go on Amazon in search of something, do you look at the product reviews before deciding on what to buy?

 

This was a quick overview of just a few things I picked up at ICON17.

I will go into more details in future emails.

Hope you are having a fantastic week and I’ll talk to soon!
