Blogging to Build your Community of Clients Online: How Women are Using the Web to Grow their Business, Reach the Right Customers, and Make a Difference

Women entrepreneurs use their natural talents of sharing, collaboration, and peer-to-peer learning to increase their business success. When you're a smart and savvy website owner, your customers will choose you over any other provider. Your website is a trusted tool and a hard-working, 24/7 employee to help you, and your blog increases your potential in turning wary web visitors into a beloved community of clients. By identifying and marketing directly to your niche, you have the opportunity to directly inspire that one person out of 100 who will be your best customer or your biggest fan.

Blogging on platforms like WordPress offers an excellent way to fine-tune search results, improve visibility, and increase customer confidence in your niche industry. This presentation will offer ten easy-to-implement steps to improve your blog functionality and increase sales. Bring your website-related questions for one-and-one Q&A before and after the presentation.

Here are the slides from Monica's presentation:
