Over the last few weeks, I've been preparing to do something BIG with my Biology blog.

Yes, traffic has been VERY strong and steady. Yes, it has been making a consistent passive income, but it's time to take things to the next level.

Since I've been sooo busy, I haven't had time to do ANY work on the site. The last video I posted was back in February. So what I decided to do was bring on a team of writers.

Well, this is the first week that I have writers publishing to my blog and I'm excited about it.

So I wanted to share with you what I've done to facilitate this process and make it run relatively smoothly. In this episode, I talk about how to set up your Authority Blog to work without you.

Why you would want to set your blog up in this way

  • AuthorityLess work for you to do because your blog functions without you. Takes time to build, but the rewards are GREAT
  • Helps in building a community. When Others feel involved, they feel as a part of something significant and want to help it succeed.
  • You get other people involved in promoting the blog.
  • It give you more CONTENT and Content is KING
  • It makes your blog MUCH easier to Sell.

What to do BEFORE starting the process

  • Choose a name that facilitates growth
  • Have good rapport with your audience and make sure you are building an AUTHORITY blog
  • Build a Community around your Authority Blog

How to Manage The Process

  • Write out Clear Guidelines for your Writers
  • Set them up as “Contributors” in your wordpress admin area
  • Encourage Sharing once the content is posted
  • Encourage them to participate in discussion (comments)
  • If you can afford to do so, PAY your writers
  • Treat them as VALUABLE parts of your team
  • Refine the process

What I expect to see as a result

  • More Traffic
  • Increased engagement
  • More Value
  • More Income
