Commenting on Other Blogs: What Works, What Doesn’t

Does commenting on other blogs bring traffic?

Yes. Kinda.

Can it be used as an effective strategy?

No.

And yes.

It depends on how you do it.

Some people do it horrendously wrong.

Let’s take a look. Continue reading

Let’s Put A Dent in The Universe

I know that blogging can resemble a war, each post a battle. I also know you have big dreams for your blog. You’d like to improve it, to grow a bigger audience, to reach more people.

But… where to start? How to go about it?

If you’d like to take your blog to the next level, if you want to put a dent in the universe, and get the most out of the wonderful experience of blogging, I have designed just the right tools for you.

In order of price and value offered, here they are:

THE FEEDBACK

$49.99 $19.99

Obviously, I do need to work a bit more on my product naming skills. This is a comprehensive analysis of your blog, everything from content to the visual layout, social sharing, the way you interact with your readers, the navigation, all that.

Also, included there will be a nice list of pointers, advice you can follow (or not) and the best of this is that all of them will be tailored to your blogging style and the particular niche you’re following.

You want to know what’s even better?

A money back guarantee. No risks involved. Pay. Receive your feedback and pointers. Don’t like them? You get your money back.

THE FEEDBACK is available for purchase on my e-store here.

THE MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

$249.99 $99.99

I think this one sounds better.

A 30 day Mentorship Program. This is not a course, not some nice looking PDF files that might not mean anything to you, and might provide limited help. This is a 30 day, one on one, tailored to your needs, designed to help you grow your blog, get you pumped up and motivated 24/7 by me program.

Wow. That was a mouthful.

This program is all about helping you figure out that there’s a lot more to this medium than just writing post after post.

If you are struggling to find readers, coming up with brilliant post ideas, or you’d want to create a long term strategy for your blog, then I guarantee this program is for you.

Did I say guarantee?

Oh, yes. You have a money back guarantee. No questions asked. If, at the end of this program, you feel that I haven’t delivered, then you get your money back.

But it’s not going to happen. I guarantee that.

I’ll make sure your blog is heading in the right direction, that you have a clear plan of action, and that you’ll develop all the skills you need to achieve your true potential as a blogger.

THE MENTORSHIP PROGRAM is available on my e-store here.

THE ART OF BLOGGING

$599.99 $249.99

This is the one I’m most excited about. And it’s also the most difficult to explain.

If we were to talk on Skype, or on any platform that allows us to see each other, or even on the phone or any of the multitude of apps that allow voice calls, then after half an hour to an hour of listening to me, you’d feel like you could conquer the world.

But that’s just a side-effect of this program.

This is my way of doing things. 90 days of pep talks, coaching, offering feedback, motivating you, and telling you over and over again that rules don’t matter that much if you have passion. It’s intense stuff. Truly intense.

Simply put, I’ll do everything for you except write your posts. But I’ll give you plenty of pointers on that as well.

This program is more about making you search deep inside your heart for the things that make you tick, and then provide you with enough energy to write about them in the best and most effective way.

Bonus: I’ll make you laugh. And find out interesting stuff about all sorts of things.

Oh, and of course, a money back guarantee on this one as well.

THE ART OF BLOGGING is available on my e-store here.

All of these programs are flexible, meant to be tailored to your own needs, and they take into account your time restraints. That being said, any program can be extended to take these things into account at no additional cost.

What I mean by that is that you can pause The Mentorship Program at any time while you get other more pressing matters done, and then pick up where we left of.

I do not believe in offering generic stuff to you, and then act as if that is going to help you very much. The web is full of such guides and courses. Each blogger is unique and has a unique style and different objectives.

Maybe you want more readers, maybe you want to be able to write blog posts like a boss. Maybe you want to earn money from your blog. Whatever it is, I can help you reach those goals.

8 Best Ways To Gain Followers For Your Blog

Traffic! It’s one of those words that I do not like much, for it almost begs us to forget that those stats represent actual people.

But… but… I know that one of the main reasons we blog is to be read by other people, so this makes it important to gain more followers, to receive feedback, to feel as if what you blog about truly matters to other people.

That’s why I compiled a list of the eight best ways to increase traffic and gain more followers for your blog. Continue reading

Haters will say…

It’s Photoshop.

But it’s not.

It’s really not.

It’s just some customers who were more than glad to send me photos of them wearing irevuo‘s designs.

See?

Anyway, this thing got me thinking. Haters. If you don’t have them, you are doing something wrong. As they say, even Jesus had his fair share of haters. It means you stood up for something.

No, really, these were all sent by happy customers. No Photoshop.

New designs are available on the store. Check them out here.

Also, don’t forget, use discount code IREVUO2018 to get 10% off your purchase for orders over $99. Oh, and you’ll also benefit from free worldwide shipping on orders over $99.

Too far apart

many“There are too many of us and we are all too far apart.” ― Kurt Vonnegut

I’m writing these words knowing that people from all over the world are going to read them. People of all ages, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, of different religious beliefs. Most of them, I’ll never get a chance to meet. Most of them, I don’t know how they look like, what’s the thing they want most in this world, or what is it that they’re afraid of… most of them are perfect strangers to me.

Yet, simply by writing these words with these strangers in my mind, having the certainty that my words will reach them, they become a little bit more than strangers. They become human beings, just like myself, and that is one of life’s greatest achievements. Continue reading

Writing a great blog post

First, I’d like to say that there is no how-to guide or recipe for writing a brilliant post. That being said, I’d also like to point out the fact that some posts seem to perform better than others. Lists and guides usually receive more comments and likes than “normal” blogs.

So this is not a how to guide. We’re just going to talk about the major components of a blog post. Continue reading

The long road to success

150 days. That’s how much it took to earn my first money through Amazon’s Affiliate Program. Five to eight posts a day on irevuo. Lots and lots of hours spent reading books, writing reviews, watching movies, writing reviews on them…

A hundred and fifty days.

Let that sink in a bit. Especially if you believe that blogging and social media are some sort of shortcut to earning a ton of money easily. Unless 24 cents are a great deal of money for you, then they’re not.

But… this got me excited. Why? Continue reading
