I don't know why I haven't done this before. It was so much fun.
I sent out an email last week asking for you guys to call in your blogging questions to the hotline, and I got about 12 questions called in. Some really GREAT questions.
Listen to This Episode
Not knowing how many questions to expect, it ended up being more than I can handle in one episode, so I'm going to have to record it in two parts (or more, depending on how many more questions come in between now and when I record the next one).
I covered lots of ground in this episode, and I know that you will find lots of value in it.
Here are the questions that were called in:
- Pete from alljeepsforsale.com asks about how to increase traffic generation to the site and increase interaction between readers and eventually build a community.
- Butch from butchgibson.com wants to know how to structure pages, posts and categories more effectively.
- Catherine Ibarra from MerelyExpressingMyOpinion.com asks if BAB has a course on Twitter. BAB has none but, I have gone on to share a few tips on using Twitter the right way.
- Dr. Nicki from ReverseDiabetesHolistically.com asks which place would be the best place to sell e-Books – through the Kindle store or through one's own website?
- Fawaz Al-Malood from FoodHandlerHQ.com asks my opinion and feedback on using video distribution services for marketing purposes.
- Gary Palmer from OregonFishShow.com asks what is the best way to add videos to iTunes.
- Jason Love from JasonLovesLife.com asks my opinion about using Tweet Adders.
- Kamil Kuczinski asks how to create a product in a niche that he is not an expert in.
So as you can see, that's a whole lot of stuff. Listen and enjoy!
Oh, and if you have a question that you'd like for me to answer in part 2 (in 2 weeks), feel free to call the hotline at (888) 835-2414 or go to the Feedback Page to ask your question directly from your computer.
