222 Blog Post Ideas That Will Drive Traffic To Your Blog [2018 Blog Post Ideas Recap]

Generating consistent blog post ideas isn’t easy and It takes mastering the secret of ‘content generation‘ to consistently produce contents that will make your regular readers come back and attract new people that will remain loyal to your blog for months.

Personally, it took me a couple of years to master how to consistently generate “high quality” contents. And, also createeye-catching” contents for my social platforms that can attract both followers and brands.

Before proceeding, I have good news for you: Due to popular demands, I will be taking limited bloggers/aspiring bloggers on one-to-one intense “Blogging consultation/Brainstorming session” that will last for 2hours [Limited slots]. To get the best out of your money worth, I will advise you book your slot as earlier as possible so that you can apply everything throughout the year of 2019. Blogging is a serious business for those who are ready to invest in themselves to get the best out of it. Creating great content is good but you need to learn how to convert those great contents into revenue for yourself [Part of the things we will be covering in the session]. Sincerely, there are lots of classes out there, mostly generalised but nothing can beat a one to one session with solutions aligning with your blog [It is more effective].

*Only 12 slots will be available this year – If you think you can’t afford it for this month, sincerely, I will advise you to start saving because I will literally be giving you all my tricks and tips + templates I use for myself.

Areas we will be covering are [You pick 3 areas you want us to focus on]:

  • How to generate ‘High Quality’ content consistently for your blog [I am not giving you blog post ideas because I want you to stop relying on others but learn how to generate contents yourself]
  • Content planning and structuring for your blog and Social Platforms [Instagram & Pinterest]
  • Personal Branding [Building your tribe and authority in your niche]
  • Monetising using your blog and Instagram [Free template on how to pitch a brand and get paid]
  • Editing Like A Pro [Free Pre-recorded guide: Editing like a badass for Instagram]
  • How to start a blog [Giving a step by step guide on how to start your blog + You get to ask me everything you want to know]

*This exclusive session comes at a fee of £50 [Equivalent in Naira] with the possibility to pay twice 50/50 [50% deposit to be made during booking and 50% to be paid latest a week to your consultation date – deposit is non-refundable]
