CPTP091: From Blog to Business – Coaching Call with Rosemarie Penner

By Tim Topham | Business and Marketing

Jun 09

blog to business

This podcast is a little bit different. Today’s show is a coaching call with one of my members, Rosemarie Penner.

Rosemarie is a travelling piano teacher from Canada who has been blogging for a while. She wants to know how to take her site from blog to business.

How can she monetise? What should she be doing with social media? What’s her next step? We cover these questions, and much more on this coaching call. As well as looking at automation more generally, and considering your ideal reader or customer.

This should be interesting to all of you who are looking at online business, or just running your local business more effectively.
