As I was gathering free resources, I decided to share them all with you! Think of this as a round up of Blogging 101 lessons.

Starting Your Business

These are great resources for creating a strong foundation.

Creating Your Website

As a small business owner, you need a website to showcase your work. Have no work to show yet? You want to at least reserve your domain name. I bought my website two years before I actually tried to monetize it so I could have my first and last name. Currently, I use Squarespace and free templates, but I look forward to using these classes to build my other websites when I am ready!

Writing Great Content

In order to bring potential customers into your funnel, you need to attract them with great content. Add value to their lives, and show them how you can help them succeed.

Social Media Management

In this day in age, marketing yourself on social media is a must for most audiences. You need to be where your audience hangs out.

Advertising and Marketing

Advertising and marketing are fun but tricky. These courses help you get a better handle on both.

Design

Bad design will drive away potential customers, no matter how amazing your content is. If you are not a graphic designer by trade, you can at least teach yourself the fundamentals until you can hire a professional.

Email Marketing

Leads and sales are much easier if you have an email list of potential clients.

Putting Your Best Brand Forward

Your brand is what your audience thinks of you. Learn how to create your best brand.

Get Visible Online

After you have content and a brand that you are proud of, you need to get found.

Teach Others

If your business teaches others how to do something, then these courses can help you be a better teacher or coach.

Manage People

Growing? Need to outsource? You need to learn how to manage people and their personalities.

Think Critically

As you learn and grow as a blogger, you need to be a critical thinker. The brain is a muscle you can strengthen.
