Today I’m releasing the 3rd Microguide in the Career Masterplan for Mad Geniuses series. it’s packed with 58 phat pages making it the biggest and juiciest guide so far.
And it’s completely free to download until Wednesday 12th December, after which it will only be available for subscribers. To get your free copy, subscribe to the Clear-Minded Creative Newsletter.
Not only that, but you can also listen to the Pimp Your Online Presence Official Soundtrack on Spotify. It’s Hip Hop through and through, so if you’re easily offended by that sort of thing, you might want to pass. It features the likes of cover star Snoop Doggy Dogg (or whatever he’s calling himself these days), Kanye West and er.. Betty Boo. Of course.
There’s loads in the guide, but basically it boils down to six key steps:
1. Determining Your Digital Identity
Choosing what domain name to use and who your audience will be, as well as personal branding.
2. Planning Your Platform
Which software will you use? WordPress comes out the winner, but will it be WordPress.com or WordPress.org?
3. All is Not What it Themes
Choosing a decent theme for your blog
4. Go Postal
Setting up an email newsletter
5. Social Media Smack-Down
Getting started with social media (and avoiding over-whelm)
6. Planning Your Publishing Strategy
Putting some thought into what you’ll be posting online and how often.
