get your blog posts to rank in search

What are great phrases that work?

Go to google.com and type in a phrase you’re thinking about. See what google suggests and also scroll to the bottom and see what it says.

Check common searched for terms and phrases.

When going to write a blog post:

  • Key phrase in mind.
  • Title

  • Optimize your meta description.
  • Make sure your meta description entices people to click through to your blog post.
  • Try to draw the reader in and ask a question.
  • Use your keyword in meta description.

After you publish: start promoting across the board.

  • Make a promotion schedule for Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, Instagram.
  • Promote it for more than that day or that week.
  • Spend an hour so it auto-posts for the next 6 months.
  • Content creation may make you happy, but don’t forget to promote.

For every hour you spend creating content, spend 4 hours promoting your content!

Write as you would speak with Maria Carras

Maria Carras is the CEO & Founder of Maria Carras Creative — a creative copywriting and virtual assistance agency working with coaches, creatives and online educators to help them thrive online.

She lives in Athens, Greece with her British, aspiring-author husband, her two rambunctious little boys and a rather ridiculously moody cat.

When she’s not listening to podcasts or writing for clients, you’ll find her reading stories to her boys or making herself yet another cup of coffee.

Write as you would speak (+other copywriting tips!) @carrascreative #blissfulbitespodcast Click To Tweet

Big Takeaways

  • Copywriter has a goal to sell something, usually.
  • Started her career in London, working as a Publicist helping actors and director get press coverage.
  • She’s always been involved in marketing and creative.
  • If you have a product to sell, you have to get into the mind of the person who needs that product. You have to identify why they need that product.
  • You have to get really specific about who your client is.
  • Use words they would use to describe their struggles, dreams, hopes.
  • Get on the phone with them to get an idea of what’s important to them!
  • Write in your own voice. Write as you would speak!
  • Make it conversational.
  • People buy from you because it’s you.
  • Pretend you’re talking to a friend and let your guard down!
  • Put more thought into your captions! Good copy goes a long way.

It’s about really identifying those pain points and work it into your copy so you’re talking directly to them, so they immediately see themselves in your writing. They can identify themselves as someone you  can help.

Find your own voice by practicing talking out loud about what it is you do. See what words YOU use when you talk, make sure to include that in your copy. It makes you more human and it makes it so much more easier for someone to reach out to you when they read your copy. When they finally connect to you, you’re exactly who they thought you would be because they already met you through your words.  

Just keep practicing writing in your own voice. Soon you’ll find it and it will become second nature. The blank page is a scary thing. Put your guard down and let your natural voice come out. Pretend you’re talking to a friend. That’s the number one thing I wish my clients would do more of!

How to Write a Great About Page:

  • Write in the first person. You come across as so much more personable and it’s so much more human to write as if you’re talking to somebody.
  • Get specific of who your client is.
  • Use a one liner to tell what you do.
  • Who you are, what you do, who you help and how you help them.
  • Talk about your client’s pain point.
  • This page isn’t about you, it’s about your clients. They’re interested in finding out how you help them
  • Outline their pain points.
  • Talk about how you can help them and how you’ve helped others.
  • It’s a gateway for people to reach out to you.
  • It’s a conversation starter.

  • Connect with your community! Meet them where you are.
  • Don’t be afraid to do things that you’re never going to get again.

Figure Out What Works for You in Your Life with Nancy Kalish, Pure Genius

As a former health journalist and certified Health Coach, Nancy Kalish knew she should only eat healthy food. Nancy turned her Brooklyn kitchen into a mad cooking laboratory. Her objective was to make the most incredibly tasting healthy treats ever. One year and a lot of dirty pans later, she succeeded with Pure Genius! *Note: Pure Genius recently changed their name to Rule Breaker!

I don't do things that don't work for me right now @bearulebreaker #blissfulbitespodcast Click To Tweet

Big takeaways:

  • Nancy jumped in not knowing ANYTHING about the food industry. She joined Expo East and went down without even any products and was a big hit.
  • It took a lot of trial and error to get the recipe right AND to make sure her products lasted on the shelf without molding.
  • Small food companies work had to bring you quality products without artificial ingredients.
  • Entrepreneurs have highs and lows! Nancy’s first Whole Foods order arrived spoiled and she had to go to each store and pull the product from the shelves.
  • Stand up for your brand and your business.
  • Check your trademarks before you build a business!
  • Pure Genius won an award in Sept 2016 for best new sweet at Expo East!
  • Nancy has figured out what works for her right now in her life…like giving up cooking elaborate dinners!
  • Rule Breaker is really committed to not only healthy stuff, but healthy stuff that tastes great!

Ways to Improve Your Instagram with Leah Goldglantz, Leah’s Plate

Leah started her blog in February 2015. Real food is a passion of hers and she loves to share it with others. Leah lives in South Florida with her husband and daughter.

Tell everyone a little bit about you with Leah’s Plate.

I am a full time stay at home mom. My daughter is almost a year old and I got into blogging, but for the first 6 months it was a hobby for me. Six months later I started taking it seriously and making it my full time career!  

Ways to grow and improve your instagram with @leahsplate #blissfulbitespodcast Click To Tweet

What came first, your instagram account or your blog?

I actually started that around the same time. I have always been really intrigued by Instagram. I always scroll through my feed every single day and I just genuinely love seeing what food people were making. It was such an inspiration. I was trying to live healthy and get ideas. I started my Instagram probably in the same month that I started blogging.

I use Instagram really as a place to just document my daily food. Whenever there’s a new blog post I put that on my Instagram.

untitled-design-14

What was the best thing that you did to grow your blog and your Instagram account?

The food summit last year really helped answer a lot of questions. With my blog, I just didn’t know really what to do.  I didn’t even know who to go to, to ask questions that I had. I had questions about promoting blog posts on Pinterest. I didn’t even know who to ask! It started with the Food summit, really just saying okay this is who I go to about Pinterest.  This is who I go to about specific blog design questions. I connected with a lot of people through the summer from the summit and Ia ctually reached out to those people.

I scheduled consultations with them and went to the with questions about blogging  professionally. I figured out how to manage every part of this business from the blog to Pinterest to social media and Instagram.  Rachel Mansfield was a big inspiration and I listened to her story during the food summit. I listened to her advice, and did what she said during her class. Since then I’ve really seen it grow a lot.

With Instagram, being consistent and posting two to three times a day has helped a lot. Just be consistent with whatever it is you’re doing, is the biggest thing. Interacting and engaging with the community is huge. I try to comment on other people’s photos that I genuinely like with genuine comments. I also try to respond to the comments on my own account. It’s not always easy, but when I have time I really do try to respond.

Nicole’s Note:  My whole goal with the Food Entrepreneur Summit is to really build a community and develop relationships. I want to show you and bloggers and the speakers that that we should come together and rely on each other. It can be a lonely place and it can be confusing to say where do I go to find out more information or who do I go to to find out more information about Pinterest or Instagram.

With the changes with Instagram, how have you stayed relevant and engaged in people’s feed?

I did a lot of trial and error. I used to always post my breakfast at 9 a.m. but my engagement wasn’t what it used to be, so I tried posting at 9:30 or 8:00. I would just try different times and then at the end of the day I would check in on my likes and comments.

I found no matter what time in the morning I posted, my afternoon posts always get more engagement. I always like my breakfast post the best, but it’s just figuring out what time you got the most engagement, especially if I have a blog post I want to share and share then.

I’m sure to share at that time of my highest engagement because I really want to get the traffic back to my blog. Personally I just know that all my posts around 12:30-1:00, get more likes and comments than the one in the morning.  

Do you have tips for improving your account?

  • Play with different background and find one you like. Leah uses a marble cheese board from Crate and Barrel.
  • Be consistent with your theme. It’s nice when I’m scrolling through my feed and I know whos picture it is, just by looking at it.
  • Invest time in the community. (be genuine!!)
  • Post at least once a day.

If you do something you love, it will never feel like work.

What made you sign up for the Food Summit?

I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I was kind of clueless and I thought that this summit could be really helpful. I saw some of the speakers and they were people that I’ve been reading their blogs for years. They are people that are so inspiring to me and I wanted to hear their stories, how they got into this and how are they successful. It made me think, this totally could be me one day. Also being able to go into the group and ask a question I had was huge.

Find Leah!

Nicole’s Note: The biggest thing is you don’t have to do it alone. There are support systems and there are groups so take the time to learn and invest in yourself so you can make it a business and take yourself and your blog seriously.

Tell us a little bit about you and what you do.

I started my blog about 5 years ago when my daughter was first born. Family wanted to know more about how she was growing and what was going on with her life that lived down south and from there I kind of got sucked into the whole blogging world and fell in love with it. I turned from a hobby blog to something where I was able to replace my teaching income and actually not get to miss out on all the little moments that I was missing out with my girls.

How did you actually take the leap to leave your full time teaching job?

My husband and I had always wanted to live down south but what was holding us back is as a New York’s teacher, I had a great salary. And it was hard to walk away from teaching that was so consistent and all of my family was from New York because that’s where we live. What ended up happening is my husband and I sat down and I was just not happy teaching anymore. It wasn’t the kids. I love my kids, I love my colleagues, education had just made a change with administration. So, we sat down and he said, “You can replace your teaching income in the next 6 months, you can put in your resignation and we’ll move. We’ll go down south, it’s not as expensive as in New York and we can see what happens with the blogging. You always have your teaching degree, if it comes down to it that you have to go back which, of course, made me cringe. He gave me 6 months and I fully need what I needed to do and we’ve been down south ever since.

What was the first thing you did to replace your income?

I started working with other bloggers. I’m big in networking. I like to be able to have that communications that you can figure out what strategies are working for them and what strategies could possibly apply to your site. I created those relationships and was able to start to figure out ways to build up my traffic and then as I was starting to get an engaged audience, I started reaching out to brands myself to start to want to do some sponsored content with them.

What were the things that were most effective in building your traffic?

It was definitely Pinterest for me.

What have you done to really build an engaged audience?

I’m very active in social media. I feel that social media gives me an opportunity to actually show different sides of me.

What do you think has been the most successful when approaching brands?

When I first started wanting to work with brands, I did go through the network. And I would use different networks that were out there and I always felt that I was getting kind of pigeon hold into these little idea, what worked, what the brand wanted. I couldn’t pitch my idea so that it was to my strength.

Now, when I reach out to a brand I have like a whole step by step process that I put together for myself so that its quicker and I can get it done but my initial e-mail, doesn’t overwhelm them. I kind of introduced myself quickly, I get in and I tell them that I like to send my media kit and my proposal and I go from there and if they don’t reply back, they don’t reply back but a lot of times because I’m giving them such a simple direction as whether or not I want to send my media kit and my proposal, does that work for you? They can just quickly reply yes, send it over and they’re good with that.

jenny-melrose

Can you tell me a little bit more about playing up your strengths?

I hear so many bloggers say, “I don’t like doing these sponsored posts I get. The give me these guidelines and I don’t know what to do with them.” It’s kind of crazy but my most popular content are my sponsored posts because I get really creative and I try to think of ways that I can apply it to my readers and if I can’t figure out a way, I don’t work with that brand. I’m very particular who I choose to work with so if I can’t turn it, it’s not going to work for me.

When I mentioned about playing to my strengths so when I created a proposal I make sure that if I’m pitching someone about party planning, I’m probably not going to pitch Instagram for me. Instagram is just not one of my strengths when it comes to a DIY craft.

If its food, I’ll pitch then I’m going to put out something on Instagram because that’s what does better in my Instagram channel but I always pitch Snapchat because I’m comfortable, it’s simple, it’s easy, I’m good at it and I love it. The brand can tell when you’re engaged and loving what you are doing.

I definitely work with companies that I didn’t know how it was going to exactly fit in. In the beginning, I made some choices that just didn’t work and it was terrible on my site and I learned from that because that is what this is all about. As a teacher, I’m still a continuous student so I am always learning from my mishaps. Since I made that decision to stick with brands that I use constantly or can turn so that something that I would normally talk about on my site has made a difference on my readers.

pitch-brands

Let’s get into your 9-point pitch checklist. I know this is something you have on your site that you offer and I’m really interested to hear what this is all about.

My sole purpose is to teach bloggers to replace their incomes or how to make more of an income because I see so many bloggers struggling and I was there and its huge for me. The 9-point pitch checklist, the purpose of it is to give people kind of a skeleton of things that should be in your pitch. Like I said before about always saying that, “I’d like to give you or send over my media kit and a proposal that’s one of the points that is in the checklist. I give you everything from how to casually address some, to do an elevated pitch, all the way through to how to show them your influence. The pitch checklist is definitely something that my readers used that are bloggers to write their initial e-mail.

How can we get the 9-point pitch checklist?

If you go to jennymelrose.com there it is set up so you can get the checklist. You can do a 10 day pitch perfect challenge. I give a mini lesson each day for 10 days so it starts from who to reach out jenny-melrose-49-200x300to and gets them to actually have a finished e-mail to send off.

Set Your End Goal and Work Backwards with @lisahayimrd #blissfulbitespodcast Click To Tweet

Share a little bit about your RD practice!

It was actually kind of a little bit backwards. I was in grad school or training for about 6 years. I decided I want to be a nutritionist. I went to Columbia to get my Master’s in Nutrition and exercise and then I had my internship. During these last 5 or 6 years or so my online presence kind of developed organically. It was a way to show people like I’m doing nutrition, I was just kind of my own platform. It started personal and then I realized that I was getting strangers on board. I said I have to turn this into a brand. The brand kind of existed although a bit differently drier. The practice itself came after and then once the practice came, the brand itself began to change in molds to this new role as a dietitian.

How do you balance all the different locations and the different types of work that you do?

If I make it look easy to anybody that would be a lie. I’m still trying to figure out the balancing act but I think what I am trying to do is to establish a routine. In my office, seeing clients at least 2 or 3 days a week. Mondays and Tuesday I’ll be on Long Island seeing office patients. Wednesdays I see them in the city and then Thursdays and Fridays I try to spend time on my blog, my newsletter, I also have a different business called The Well Necessities Collection.

I try and just create designated times for each part of my work. I’ve been doing this for about a year and I have to say I’m still trying to figure out exactly how to do it so I’m most efficient at all times and that’s probably just a personal struggle I’m trying to overcome and get better at.

Has there been one tip that really has resonated with you or that has helped you focus a little bit more?

Just focusing on what you’re doing and trying to not let the noise consume you. So, it’s setting certain times to just work on your blog. Making the most of your time is focused on doing what you’re doing, what you want to do and not letting all these distractions pull you in.

the-well-necessities

How do you get involved with things like the nutrition school or The Well Summit or other events in the city?

I think that naturally I just do networking my whole life. I think it’s just getting to know the people in your industry and connecting with them and giving them your time, letting them know you’re interested in them. As soon as you show interest in other people, that’s really all people want.

People just want to feel like they’re getting to you. Just constantly talking to the people in your industry, letting them know what you’re doing and staying in the know. I think is important and its hard to balance. Staying in the know while focusing on your own work but you got to let certain people in and show them that you care about them and they care about you.

If you had advice for the listeners if they haven’t started to do this, what do you think should be the first step they take to getting out in their community and finding out about fun events? Where do you think they should turn?

Choose 5 people that inspire you or that you think are doing something that you don’t know enough about and you reach out to them and simply ask if you can pick their brain.

How do you find the line then for you like people who want to say, “I want to pick your brain,” and how do you find the balance of giving your time away for free and saying no?

I think that if they are reaching about nutrition or something that I feel that I could really help them to, I really try and say yes because the people that said yes to me advanced my career and saved me so much time. But I can tell if somebody hasn’t done their own research.

If it’s a service or something like that, I offer a 15-minute free consultation and I’m happy to give that to somebody to see if we’d be a good fit but if it’s something more extensive than that, that’s a service that I offer and I’m happy to give you 100%my all of it but that means that you need to support me so that I can give you that time.

Do you have one tip for someone if they are trying to figure out the root for them?

Know what your end goal is first and then move backwards.
