9 Pinterest Mistakes You’re Making and How to Fix Them These days, I see tons of advice floating around on social media about how Pinterest works and doesn’t work.  Some advice is good, some advice is not so good but what you decide to listen to is up to you.  Really, Pinterest is all about testing to see what works for your brand and what doesn’t. And believe me, it can take awhile to figure out a good strategy.

Pinterest has just changed their algorithm, and they’re holding their cards close to their chest so you might not always notice their changes. If you want to succeed in Pinterest, one thing remains the same: you have to be consistent […]

Top Pinterest Tips for Bloggers

If you’re on my email list, you already know how much I love Pinterest because of what it has done for my blog.  Eight months ago, I was getting NO traffic, NO repins, NO nada! I was on the verge of giving up.  Blogging is hard work, and while I love it, it can be kind of a downer when your message isn’t reaching people that you know it will impact.

So, what do you do when you have no traffic…?

ENTER Pinterest!

Pinterest now has a whopping 150 million active users on its platform, and guess what?  They’ve made it so easy for bloggers to completely reap the benefits of viral content and blog traffic surges. […]

Increase Your Blog Engagement and Stop Worrying About Blog Traffic

Hey y’all!  I’m back after a pretty long hiatus, mainly because I just moved to Atlanta, but today I wanted to chat a bit about a topic that I think plagues all new or newish bloggers and small biz owners.  When I first started my skincare business, I would get so bummed about not getting the website traffic that I just knew was going to come rolling in as soon as I hit publish.  I figured that by researching SEO and implementing all of the tips I’d read on other blogs that the site traffic would just come pouring in. WRONG. This was a terrible assumption that cost […]

But WHY does her content speak to me?

Because I’m her target audience.

I’m her avatar.

Her content speaks to me because she strategically designed it for me.

This, my friends, is called content […]

Visual Branding Basics for Bloggers

One of the most important parts of starting your business is how you go about choosing your visual branding strategy.  When I first started in blogging, in business, in everything, I had no idea what branding was exactly.  In a nutshell, branding is any and everything that defines your business and how you perform your operations. Visual branding is how you convey that message to your audience through your brand message, logo, graphics, and website design.

The best thing about branding is that it’s created through vision and inspiration.  You can literally define your brand as anything you choose, so go heavy on the creativity.  Branding is an art, and there are definitely levels to […]
