It's funny how January rolls around and so many of you put the brakes on, thinking you can just kick back and chill for a few weeks. I'm not questioning business owners needing a break, just the timing if you stop working altogether.
It might be the slow season, but "slow" is only about revenue and clients coming through the front door! Right now, things can be as busy as you want them to be when it comes to building a stronger business in the new year.
I'm continuing my quest to give you ideas to build a more substantial business and, at the very least, give a few of you a jump start.
Next topic up: I want to focus on your blog in the next two building block posts.
"Your website is about what you sell. Your blog is about what's in your heart."
Here are some great tips on building a blog. While I'd love to take credit for all of them, many of them are thanks to my good buddy Scott Bourne. They apply not only to maintaining a blog but also to any place you're trying to build readership and followers.
And there they are, ten tips to help you build a blog that draws in readers. But a blog alone isn't enough. You need to weave a web around your readers so they're finding you in multiple locations. It's all about building a more recognized brand, starting with being helpful to your followers.
