In this episode of the Blogger to Author Podcast, I’m incredibly honored to feature an interview with Katy Widrick. Katy has been blogging for over a decade and has turned her passion for storytelling through her blog into a successful full-time business. She, to quote her, turned her “hobby into a jobby” where she helps fellow bloggers grow their businesses and connect more deeply with their audiences. She’s an expert on all things blogging, social media, and content creation, and she shares some great tips for how you can grow your blog and business with your book, just like she did.
What you’ll learn in this episode:
- Why you don’t have to have it all figured out to be a successful blogger or business owner
- How sharing your knowledge freely can help you build a business
- Katy’s tips for writing an incredibly successful, engaging newsletter
- Tips for showing your audience that you’re truly an expert in your niche
- The mindset shift you should make to successfully start and ramp up your business
- How to come up with a great idea for a business
- Why Katy decided to write an eBook and how she came up with her topic (HINT: It’s one of the smartest ways to figure out what you should write your book about!)
- A great strategy for making sure that you provide value to any clients or customers you work with
- How to organize your blog or website so that it actually serves your readers
