Pro Blog Academy – Module 3

Pro Blog Academy – Module 3

The third module in Ray Higdon’s Pro Blog Academy is titled Traffic, Traffic, Traffic;   hey and you guessed it is all about getting traffic to your blog.

In this module of Pro Blog Academy  Ray covers;

  • What sites he submits his blog posts to
  • How to get Social Media interaction
  • Ways to outsource that make sense

Pro Blog Academy

This is the third post in this series of Pro Blog Academy. If you have not read the first two I did I suggest you go and read them first so that this one makes sense. You can find them here;
suejprice.com/pro-blog-academy-module-1/
suejprice.com/pro-blog-academy-module-2/

In each of these modules in Pro Blog Academy there is a  main training video which is about 60 minutes long. There is also a Q & A session which is a recorded webinar  for each module of about the same length.

I find the Q & A’s in Pro Blog Academy  just as valuable as the straight teaching.

The Q & A ‘s were recorded with a group who purchased Pro Blog Academy prior to the launch. I have found if I have questions they are pretty much always answered in these sessions. I am very excited though as this week we have our very first live webinar with Ray. This course is awesome value!

Pro Blog Academy

Pro Blog Academy  –  Here is a list of where Ray Higdon posts his blog and some of the tools he uses

  • Google+
  • Twitter
  • Facebook and a couple of Facebook groups
  • Pinterest
  • SocialAdr
  • Better Networker (also puts his YouTube videos here)
  • Networked blogs
  • Pixelpipe (similar to Ping.fm)
  • TribePro – Ray has the maximum level
  • Then he emails his list

Ray warned against the use of auto responders if you are blogging daily. For example for those of us in MLSP you may be using their auto responder emails. If you also want to email out your blog posts to the same people they may get annoyed. Ray only automates the message that goes with his giveaway on his blog.

Pro Blog Academy – How to get more interaction

  1. The use of the proper persuasion shell as covered in module 1 which if you have not read you can find it here. It is about structuring your posts in a way you get interaction and telling people what you want them to do.
  2. Run leveraged contests  –   ask people to do something and give a prize for the best comment or story or whatever it is, or maybe multiple prizes.
  3. Run a no cost webinar, record it and offer it to the attendees if they blog about it and backlink to your blog
  4. Think like a marketer and give VALUE! Always be giving value.  If you want someone to do something for you provide value!
  5. Form your own tribe and network and share each others’ content.

Pro Blog Academy – Ways to Outsource
Ray advised us to have a Millionaire Mindset – don’t do something yourself if it is going to take you an hour and you can get it done for $10! Are you worth more than $10 an hour?

Ray gave examples of using Fiverr – Ray has used it for article marketing and paid for someone to do the process for him. If you are not familiar with Fiverr you can get pretty much anything done for $5.   I have used it several times mainly for graphics and been very pleased with the result.

Ray warned against using Fiverr for getting fake comments. Funny that would not even enter my head but clearly some people do it.

Personally I share a Virtual Assistant and he does my technical stuff and SEO. I learned the power of outsourcing years ago working with Robert Kiyosaki. He is a master at getting other people to do things 🙂

Then came the homework for Pro Blog Academy – Module 3.   I am still working on that!

So what do you think? Do you think Pro Blog Academy sounds like a course that could be valuable to you?   Please leave me your comments below and share with your friends if you think it is of value.

Do you outsource now? If you do what do you outsource?

Pro Blog Academy is currently not available but you can get on the waiting list for when it re-opens here at Pro Blog Academy.  (my affiliate link).

I will be back next with the final Module 4 in Pro Blog Academy….. Until then be productive.

    Boy, you’re giving away the goods here Sue but a great review of the product so far. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and got a lot out of it as well. Of course when you run into problems you’ll find a lot of the answers in the Q&A section plus we have our first one tonight so I’m looking forward to that one. Just helps to get a few things clarified I think.

    Great job Sue and I’m sure they’ll be waiting for Module 4.

    Have a great week Sue.

      Hi Adrienne

      I did feel a bit like I was teaching the course here :-). I too have enjoyed it very much. I loved the live Q and A today and it gave me the opportunity to ask my question. I think the course has been awesome value.

      One more post to go on this topic.

      Thanks for your comment Adrienne

    Hi Sue,

    It sounds like an amazing course! I knew it would be since it’s by Ray though. 🙂 Right now my blog is taking a back seat to another project otherwise I would have signed up for it myself. Thanks for sharing some of what you’re learning. I’m definitely curious to check out your other posts in the series.

      Hi Stacy

      Yes it is an amazing course. We had a live Q & A with him today and that was an excellent opportunity for people to ask questions.
      It is wise of you to not buy a training course when you do not have time to do it. I have made that mistake in the past and now only buy what I can do and implement.

      Thanks for your comment Stacy

    Hi Sue,

    That’s a very good and thourough review you gave us here. I definitely agree with the fact that you don’t want to blaster your list with emails every single day, even though I still see that happen a LOT. I just don’t get it 🙂

    The list of things that this guy teaches I think is really worth the investment for anyone who really want to succeed with their only marketing or take it to the next level.

    Thanks for this, Sue 🙂

    Hey Sue,

    I just finished Module 3 myself and it is amazingly thorough to say the least. Your readers are certainly getting a great look inside Ray’s course.

    As Ray said, it’s necessary to have a plan of action after you hit the Publish button. I’m putting together my checklist right now.

    Thanks for the review.

      Hi Mika

      It is a great course for beginners but there are also some very experienced bloggers doing it who are saying they are still getting great tips. Ray is an excellent marketer and I think everyone can learn from him.

      Have a great day

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today.
