I have found that some of the most valuable help in growing my business is when I’ve received feedback from others. It is always a little tough to hear what I’m not doing well, but nothing moves me farther ahead, faster than an honest critique from my mentors and coaches.
I don’t know how many of you know this, but my degree is in fine art and what I loved most about my experiences in getting my degree was the critiques on my work. I always was surprised by what people said and saw, and it gave me clarity and perspective in ways that I never would have been able to see through my eyes alone.
While I’ll never lie and say I was excited to walk into a critique. The butterflies were always there, and there were times I fought back tears because the truth hurt, but in every case I can remember, I learned so much more through the critique than the assignment itself.
My Past 3 Blog Critique Experiences:
I’ve had three amazing opportunities to get feedback from experts on my blog. My first instance was when I was invited to participate in a critique by Ty Tribble and Ann Sieg in the bonus webinar for their training MLM Blog Code.
I will never forget the nervous feeling I had, sitting in The Loon Saloon, a bar/general store/bait shop/pizza joint in Northern Wisconsin last July, which was the only place I could get an internet signal in the north woods, drinking a coke, too nauseous to eat. I had my headphones on, so I could hear over the music as I watched as these two MLM leaders and internet marketing experts critiqued my brand new blog and told me what I might change in order to get better results.
Then a few months later I had the awesome privilege of being Ana Hoffman’s first Traffic Generation Cafe Blog Audit, (more like a massacre) where she dug deep into Clever Marketer and gave me feedback on what was working what wasn’t. What I needed to work on, what I was doing well.
And once again, as part of our EIF Blog Marketing Tribe on facebook, the awesome Devesh Sharma who is the mastermind behind Blokube and TechNShare who also gave me some very helpful tips and suggestions to help me make my blog better.
Critique Me: What would you do to Clever Marketer?
My little blog has gone through a lot of changes in the last couple of months and I want to know what is working for you and what isn’t.
So, I’m asking YOU to look at Clever Marketer with a critical eye and tell me what you would change. I don’t care if you’re an expert or a brand new business blogger, your opinion is important to me!
Some of you are SEO gurus (I’m not), some of you have an amazing design eye (I’m so-so here), and others of you may be needing or wanting something that I’m not delivering. And who ever you are and wherever you are on your business journey, I value your opinion.
Design: What things you would change or like to see in the future?
Content: What types of content and/or topics would you like to see more of in the future? What do you see as my strengths and/or are there topics you think I should avoid.
Navigation: How could I make clever marketer easier for you to use?
SEO: Hey experts…have at it! Tell me what to do!
Mentoring-Coaching-Products: What kind of support/resources do you need, what would you pay for, what price point would be comfortable for your budget?
So please let me have it! Tell me the truth, I can handle it and please share this is social media so I can get the feedback of others as well!
Don’t go soft on me now, please! 🙂
