Kerrie's Blog: Do Somebody a Favor...Inform them about AR's Boot Camp

Do Somebody a Favor...Inform them about AR's Boot Camp

This Thursday, ARU kicks off our 5th round of Boot Camp classes.  All novice, intermediate and even advanced bloggers pick up a thing or two from Bob's 3-week course.  

I know we all just had a wonderful round of MeetUps that consisted of many newbies tiptoeing in, happy to be here but not yet understanding the power of blogging.  They don't know where to start, how to maximize their blogs or even put a link in yet.  But that's ok, we all started with blog post number one. Do the newbies a favor and invite them to Boot Camp.  Bob teaches, I take care of the chat and questions and we do so because everybody should know how to best reach their target audience, get the views and drive traffic to your own site.

Checking the traffic page and seeing firsthand the clicks and views your piece of content received is eye-opening.  It amazes even the nonbelievers.  I was fooling around in Google Analytics last week and noticed a blog post on recycled glass countertops which has almost 150,000 clicks.  150,000!!  Talk about the power of reach you have available at your fingertips.

Boot Camp breaks down the how, what and why of blogging in a way that makes sense.  So if you have anybody in mind that could benefit from a free course from the best in the west, please forward them the information on signing up.  

Each Thursday at 9am Pacific for 3 weeks is all it takes.  We'll take you through (1) Google juice; how to rank on the front page (2) Targeting your audience; hyperlocal anyone? and (3) Generating leads with your blogs; let's drive that traffic to your site.

Hope to see you there!

Let it be known that AR boot camp is fun; I can't say the same about the Army & Navy experience!

Kerrie, I think I've signed up for the last 2 or 3 of these and missed it all. Maybe I still have the replays in my emails.

Hey newbies and oldbies!  Do this!  (I did them and I'll re-take them in a while.)  When I refer someone into AR, I'll make sure they do this to get started.  So many people on here could use these classes.

I got a set of Green Rain boots at my first camp last year and get them out to wear whenever a boot camp is going on. I can say the camps are getting better and better. I bet you will let the enrollees pick there favorite color.

I just wish that I had the time.  Families concerns are at the top of the list right now.
