Friday Five: January 20, 2017

Here is this weeks edition of the Friday Five. . . Enjoy!

So, you might remember a while back when I said I was moving from **ConvertKit because there was so many things happening and I wasn’t happy with it (even though I really love it!). . . well, I spent a few months using another service and while it was it great, actually, I just really do love the way ConvertKit is setup so I switched back at the end of December. Anyway, this week they put out a fantastic blog concept they’re calling Issues – which is a series of blog posts around a single topic. The first one is called The Many Faces of Online Products. If you’re creating and offering any kind of products to your clients, go read it.

Mindvalley is an amazing company and recently, the posted a new article – 7 Books That Will Radically Shift The Way You See The World. There are some pretty awesome gems on the list. Go check it out.

This is an older article (from 2015) but still has great info you can use now – 5 Powerful Ways to Monetize Your Blog.

On Tuesday, Brian Clark, founder of Copyblogger, posted a fantastic article on attracting your ideal customer. Head over and check it out. It’s absolutely packed with great information and if you’re struggling at all with producing good, quality content, this will help you tremendously.

Also from the Copyblogger family this week, Robert Bruce (VP of Marketing at Rainmaker Digital), posted about the foundations of good content marketing strategy. Head over and read (it’s not as long as the others!) and then be sure to read or listen to Sean McCabe’s short essay mentioned at the end.

And that’s all for this week!
