Today marks the 100th post for Ending The Grind and I am so excited about the future of this blog. It’s been 7 1/2 months now and I’ve met some incredible people and learned a ton along the way.

100 posts isn’t actually that many in the world of blogging, but it marks a milestone for me. I realize that I have a long road ahead of me, but I am prepared to do whatever it takes to succeed. Even if it means 1,000 posts!

But instead of writing about my progress thus far, I thought I would do something a little different.

I actually got this idea from Catherine Caine in our interview the other day. She blew me away when she told me she gives a free 30 Minute Marketing Checkup phone call to each new email newsletter subscriber.

Spending 30 minutes with someone for subscribing is extremely generous and offers incredible value to her new readers. She is kicking some serious ass in the online world and I would love to have even a fraction of her success.

So here is what I’m doing: For the month of June, I will be offering a total of eight 30 minute consulting calls in hopes of helping those who really need it. There will be no charge for these nor will I pitch you on why you need my services. It’s just a simple gesture to help people that could use quality advice.

What I Can Help You With

First off, 30 minutes is not a lot of time so it will be best spent asking specific questions or having me look at some aspect of your blog.

Here a few areas I can help you with:

  • I took this blog from 0 to 5,000 monthly visitors in my first 4 months and have learned from some of the most successful bloggers and entrepreneurs online. We can talk about different strategies used to get your traffic up as well.
  • I’ve spent the last 7 months treating my blog as a full-time business and have invested an incredible amount of time into learning how things work online. Finding the most efficient way to get things done is very important because time is money and I can help save you time!
  • I’ve invested a significant amount of time learning SEO through research and membership  sites. I can offer advice on finding good keywords, how to optimize your posts and titles, and how to find quality backlinks.
  • I’ve customized my WordPress theme heavily and have seen what works and what doesn’t. What attracts readers and what repels them? Is your design working for or against you? Let me take a look and see what you can improve upon.
  • Brand building 101. Do you have a clear vision for your brand? Does your blog tell people exactly what you are about? Are you sending mixed messages or worse yet, no message at all? Having a strong and clearly defined message is crucial, so tell me what you are all about and I will do my best to help.
