Why did I start the Blog/Content Website Support group?

I will make this brief. I am often contacted by website owners to help solve the problem of traffic and revenue. In my experience, short-term interventions have not yielded significant fruit. I get paid a fee to look at the site and recommend what needs to be done. Once I make my recommendation, I move on.

9 out of 10 times, such blogs and content websites do not record any serious growth. Sometimes, they record no growth at all. As such, I have stopped carrying out short-term interventions, well, unless the client insists. Who am I to refuse awoof money?

But in the instances where my interventions are more long-term and involve overseeing the implementation of my recommendations, the blogs and websites in question grow.

Let me put it this way: having someone to work with you weekly in strategizing about your website and holding you accountable to executing strategies gives your blog or website a much stronger chance at success than bringing in a consultant short-term.

Two things are required on your part:

  1. a commitment to unlearn and learn
  2. a commitment to follow through i.e. to be diligent, and carry out group goals and activities

What happens in the Telegram group is that on a weekly basis, I share practical, helpful information with members. We also set monthly tasks that everyone is obligated to execute. For example, I may share on practical steps to implement better SEO, and set a goal that in the month of June 2020, every member would spend time modifying 1 blog post daily for better SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), so that by month end, 30 of their blog’s posts are much better and seeing better traffic.

Think of it as using the power of accountability and group pressure to keep members on their toes in the quest for success as digital publishers. There is power when a group of people are bound in common goals.

But long-term interventions are costlier and most small businesses are unable to afford them.

I would normally charge much higher for this sort of intervention, but these are hard times on everyone, so membership of the Blog/Content Website Support Group has been pegged at a comfortable fee of ₦55,000 per annum. That is a steal. Imagine how much growth your blog or news website will experience in a full year – all for less than the cost of a budget smartphone.
