How We Re-Define Content Marketing Training #MyBlogU

mbustorm challenge1 How We Re Define Content Marketing Training #MyBlogUWhat does a usual content marketing training lack?

  • Practice
  • Fun and Play
  • Motivation…

I am going to change it!

Meet our FREE content marketing training experiment: #MBUstorm challenge!

[Details are here]

Here’s how we are re-defining content marketing training:

  • We encourage you to brainstorm content ideas for 30 days, every day, using MyBlogU brainstorm section
  • Once you are done, we give you FREE access to the most awesome PRO social media tools for further education and practicing!

We motivate you through a 30-day challenge, we make it fun by providing prizes and we give you lots of room for practice daily, using MyBlogU tools, and then after that using our partners’ tools!

Training + Brainstorming + Writing for 30 days = GREAT tools to use after that!

By November you are sure to be a much more knowledgeable content and social media marketer than you ever though you would!

If you take and pass the challenge, we will give you a certificate at the end (We plan to have this challenges regularly because we believe in learning when you are ACTING and we believe in acting when it’s fun!)

… as well as great tools to use (and even cash to a happy winner)

Does it sound fantastic?

The rules:

  1. Use* MyBlogU Brainstorm section every day for 30 days
  2. Whatever you do, tweet** it using the hashtag #mbustorm DAILY
  3. Once your 30 days are over, submit your results or experience here by October 26

Ann Smarty Looking for the Perfect Sponsors

go 1 Ann Smarty Looking for the Perfect SponsorsQuick disclaimer before I go deeper into that: No, this is NOT about cash-only sponsorships or sponsoring me personally or this blog. This is about giving more exposure to your products, tools or services only if they can benefit our community members and initiatives we are committed to.

I was inspired by yesterday’s #blogchat as well as the the future MyBlogU brainstorm challenge (which we are planning) and decided to write this article describing all the opportunities I can offer you through a few great communities I am building!

Listen, you have something of value or you want to be heard: We have the community that may LOVE that!

Crafting an About Page that Proves the AUTHORITY in You

tips about page Crafting an About Page that Proves the AUTHORITY in YouThere are always those little but important things you need to do but never have time / motivation / memory to. For me, that’s my “About me” page. I set up my blog back in 2008-ish and my About page has been almost intact since then.

Yet, that’s not even a little thing… I talk so much about personal branding and I haven’t even done the essentials for myself: Taking care there’s one place on the web that has most complete information on myself.

Our new project MyBlogU helped me to get motivated. I created an interview request asking people to give me some tips and examples om how to create a winning “About me” page.

My page is still work in progress (but at least I’ve started working on it thanks to the wonderful people who came to help!) Plus, thanks to those answers, I also got inspired to write my very first Medium post telling my story.

So much accomplished thanks to a single MyBlogU project! Thanks!

Below I am featuring those helpful answers hoping they will inspire you as much as they inspired me: Read on: Crafting an About Page that Proves the AUTHORITY in You

Create And Market Video Courses That Sell On Udemy

udemy Create And Market Video Courses That Sell On Udemy**A few weeks ago I launched a free ViralContentBuzz.com course at Udemy and fell in love with the platform. I don’t publish too many guest articles at SEOsmarty (as it’s more personal blog) but I couldn’t resist this perfect match:

Rob Cubbon is BOTH ViralContentBuzz.com valued user and Udemy expert, so I reached out to him and invited to teach us a lesson on how to market your video courses at Udemy!

Please meet Rob:**

If all my years of blogging have taught me anything it’s this: we are all experts, influencers and teachers. We know stuff that other people don’t. We can help people and we have a saleable commodity.

Now that university courses can leave graduates crippled with debt and without any guarantee of a job, online learning is predictably big business. A survey by Ambient Insight Research showed that the worldwide market for e-learning products is expected to be $50 billion in 2015.

Udemy is the market leader in career skills video courses, boasting 3 million students and over 16,000 courses. Read on: Create And Market Video Courses That Sell On Udemy

Documenting My Life after Google Penalty

penalty Documenting My Life after Google PenaltyI thought I’d share my *personal* experience with being hit by Google penalty. There’s a growing number of people like me, so I hope that will be helpful

*Mind that we are a bit special case study as we are not going to recover (and that’s another story, don’t judge me).

But that experience will turn useful for you anyways, hopefully*

Update: I was also doing Reddit AMA in case you wanted to ask anything or read through my replies.
