Triumph in Your New Business with these Next Steps

Step 1: Customize Your Website

  • Check the email address that you used to establish your Siteground account. In it you will find a message entitled ‘Wordpress Installation Confirmation.’ This message includes all of the information that you need to login to your WordPress dashboard and begin customizing your website.
  • The first step to customizing your website includes choosing a WordPress theme. Even though there are many free themes out there, I highly recommend going with a premium theme as they offer many more features that will enhance your reader’s experience and you will receive regular updates to your website directly from the publisher. Whether you’re looking for a free theme to start with or want to take the leap to purchase a premium theme, go to My Theme Shop. I chose to use their Corporate Theme to develop the Black Bloggers Network website and it is absolutely awesome! Their customer service is phenomenal, which is key for new bloggers and the platform is super easy to use.

Step 2: Purchase a Get FIT with Erica Coaching Package

  • Get FIT with Erica is for anyone who desires to win in their finances by building an online business. Over the course of four 1-hour coaching sessions, you will meet privately with Erica to craft your profitable business model and create your action plan for continued success. As an added bonus, you will also be enrolled in the exclusive Idea to Profitable Business in 30 Days Course, which gives you a step-by-step playbook that teaches you how to develop your idea and launch a profitable online business in one month.

Your Program Benefits Include:

  • Four 1-hour private coaching sessions with Erica
  • A recording of each coaching session for you to listen to and learn from later
  • Tools & resources to assist you in goal development and achievement

Step 3: Download these Resources to take your Business to the Next Level

The best advice that I can give you is to build a community, collect email addresses and continue to develop useful, high quality content and resources that keeps them coming back for more. ConvertKit provides everything that you need and more to make this happen. If you’ve accepted the 7 Days to Win Challenge, the emails that you received in that FREE email course were all created and sent out through ConvertKit. Trust me, it’s one of the best investments that you can make.

Here’s a sneak preview of one of the trade secrets that I share in the Idea to Profitable Business in 30 Days course. If you’re like me and not a professional photographer, there’s a program that allows you to still create stunning images. Believe it or not, ALL of the images that appear on the FIT website and social media pages were created using Stencil. There are many companies out there that allow you to create images for free, but you typically have to pay $1 each for premium images. At Stencil, there is a free option, but there’s also an option for you to pay a flat monthly rate, which allows you to select any image that you choose. Since I knew that I would be using Stencil exclusively to provide images that I use on my website, Pinterest, Instagram and FaceBook pages, I decided to opt for the unlimited plan for $18/month. This plan allows me to create as many images that I like and between Instagram and Pinterest, that is sometimes upwards of 20+ images/day. They also offer a Pro plan for $9/month that allows you to create 50 images per month so check them out for all of your imaging needs.  

Another weapon in the Triumph arsenal is Tailwind. As I mentioned above, my social media strategy sometimes requires me to create 20+ images on a single day. In Idea to Profit in 30 Days, I teach you how to develop a strategy for each social media platform that will engage your audience and lead to increased page views on your website. Tailwind allows me to automate posts for Pinterest. I spend approximately one hour every Sunday to set up my posts for the week and bam! I’m done. For the next 7 days all of my images automatically post to the various FIT social media accounts at the selected time. Without Tailwind I definitely wouldn’t be able to implement my Pinterest strategies.  

  • Later formerly known as Latergramme

Later makes posting to Instagram quick and easy. I use it to schedule 5-6 Instagram posts per day. Just like with my Pinterest strategy, I schedule all of my posts for the week on Sunday and Later sends a message directly to my phone when it’s time to post. It literally takes 30 seconds. The best part is that Later offers a FREE program that allows you to schedule 30 posts per month, but they’ve given me a special incentive to offer. By signing up for a Later account with this link, you will receive an additional 10 posts per month for FREE!

That’s 40 posts every month for FREE.

Accuity Scheduler

If you are planning to offer coaching sessions, then I highly recommend that you sign up for Accuity Scheduler. It can be embedded directly into your website and the best part is that it’s ABSOLUTELY FREE! Accuity Scheduler is the software that I use when scheduling my coaching sessions. It sends email and text reminders to both myself and the client so that we never miss an appointment. I love this service!

Congrats on starting your own business! I wish you much success.
