I’ve been working on a new project, and I’m super excited about it!
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Check out my Instagram feed to follow along as I work with my test group, find the perfect logo, and start this new chapter helping bloggers utilize affordable Pinterest Marketing services!
While not all of the details about this new project have been released yet, I will say that it has to do with Pinterest and the book I wrote. I’ve been carefully pricing services, which has gotten me thinking about how bloggers view hiring out some tasks relating to their blogs.
What is considered affordable?
What tasks, if any, are you comfortable hiring out?
And so I started looking around, comparing virtual assistant services, and realizing that is a huge range of services available that bloggers can take advantage of – and that prices vary greatly! So here for you, I’ve created the definitive list of affordable blog services to take some of those day-to-day tasks you dread off of your plate so you can focus on being awesome!
If you haven’t heard by now, whether you’re a newbie blogger or a have years of experience on your side, link parties are a great way to drive traffic to your website, develop relationships with other bloggers, and discover new blogs & and awesome authors behind them.
But, being available 4 times per day, every single day, to link up your posts to link parties is not only time consuming, it’s really inconvenient! But did you know that you can hire someone to link up your posts to link parties? Jamie, from MomsTestKitchen.com offers customizable link party packages, where for as little as $5.00 per week, she will link up your most recent posts to more than 50 link parties!
Are you trying to post more frequently to build your blog but are simply running out of time? Posting more frequently is a great strategy to gain new readers, but when there simply isn’t enough time in a day you can buy round-up or compilation posts such as “20 Easter Crafts Perfect for Kids” that you audience will love! The Blog Helper offers posts like these for as little as $2.50 per post!
Social Media Scheduling
Do you hate scheduling Facebook posts? How about Twitter posts? There are tons of Virtual Assistant who specialize in scheduling posts on these social media sites and who will do so super affordably! Jessica from Moms4Real.com offers a package that includes 2 posts per day for $25.00 per week. Even more affordably, The Blog Helper will post up to 5 funny ecards per day on your Facebook page for only $10 a week!
WordPress Updating & Maintenance
If your website as have ever “gone down” or you broke it – let’s be honest, it’s happened to me more than once! – then you know how important it is to keep all of your plugins up to date, back up your site, and clean up spam! Christina Berry from Inspired VA Services will do all of that and respond to comments, optimize your database, and even send you weekly statistics reports for only $50 per month! I know I’m definitely thinking about this one!
Pinterest holds huge potential for bloggers – but if you’ve started to tap the Pinterest audience, then you know that it can be a huge time-suck! Or, now that Pinterest uses their Smart Feed algorithm to display content, rather than in chronological order, you may have noticed that your traffic from Pinterest has plummeted!
You can hire your Pinterest Marketing out affordably too!
Whether you just need a phone consult to help you develop a Pinterest Marketing plan you can implement on your own, or someone to completely manage your Signature Pin style and Pinterest account, I offer services for everyone as an affordable Pinterest Assistant – and prices start at just $8.00!
