Carly Findlay is an award-winning writer, speaker and appearance activist. This is a post based on the excellent content Carly shared as a guest speaker on writing for the media at my recent Great Melbourne Blog-in V3.
The Great Melbourne Blog-in V3 went off without a hitch and once again, the energy and warmth in the room were amazing. Our guest speakers Sharon Gourlay, Carly Findlay and Linda Reed-Enever saw us all scribbling notes and asking lots of questions during the morning’s session. I can’t wait for the next one. Find out more…
Linda Reed-Enever runs the very popular Business Business Business Facebook Group and I asked her to talk about running a successful Facebook group to help your business or blog. With more than 16,000 members and still growing, she knows what it takes to set up, manage and sustain a Facebook Group.
Sharon Gourlay is well known in the travel blogging scene. Her travel blog Where’s Sharon? gets around half a million visits each month and is frequently listed in the top ten best travel websites in the world. But Sharon isn’t just ‘another travel blogger’ – she is a savvy digital marketer with a portfolio of digital real estate properties that use affiliate marketing to generate a tidy income. She spoke to the group about getting started in affiliate marketing to make money from your blog.
I recently hosted another successful Great Melbourne Blog-in where bloggers from across Melbourne gathered to listen to insightful guest speakers, eat yummy food and connect with other bloggers.
Did you know there could be half a dozen or more videos lurking in a single blog post? And with video rapidly becoming first choice for content consumption, as a copywriter, it’s about time I jump on the video bandwagon and explore this medium in more depth.
