The Garter Girl’s B.Y.O.B. WORKSHOP

The Garter Girl - Julianne Smith

Blog Your Own Business Workshop

I want to teach you what is in my blogger brain! I want to show you exactly how I grew two different businesses into websites with thousands of readers and clients. I want to show you how I am able to sell a beautiful heirloom to brides who don’t even know that they want it.

Are you frustrated with your business’ blog? Do you wonder if blogging even worth it? Can you never seem to find the time to blog? Or, are you are blogging, but you aren’t sure if you are doing it right, because no one ever showed you how and why it all mattered? Many small businesses struggle with their blog and it is the last thing on their to do list.

The B.Y.O.B Workshop (#byobworkshop) will fix your blogging mistakes and teach you how to get control of your blog. It will show you – with very real numbers – why blogging is even more important in this day and age of social media. In the workshop, you will learn exactly how to blog smarter, harder and faster. It will prove to you that blogging still matters and help you use your blog to attract the kind of business that you want. And, it will teach you how to set your business up for the future no matter what is the social media site du jour!

My passion is helping other businesses grow. My expertise is showing you exactly how to do it. I blogged every day for a year about wedding garters and then I blogged so much that I was able to sell my business! I can help you too! While everyone else (my competition!) is focused solely on social media, I am booking clients and setting my business up for the long term through my blog.

Your blog is your business’ biggest cheerleader! Your blog is the single greatest free marketing tool right at your fingertips. Let’s use it right, together!

“Every small business owner needs to take this workshop. Really. Until I took the workshop, I’m not sure I realized the value of my blog and what it can do for my business. Blogging was something I put off doing until I started to feel guilty. By learning the importance of my blog and how to blog correctly, I feel that I can promote by business in a way that gets my brand out there the way I want to an audience of potential clients.” — From an attendee at the first B.Y.O.B. Workshop
