My progress so far
So far, I've reached course 2, lesson 10 of the certification course where you're asked to present to the community how you are progressing. Here's mine:
I decided to concentrate on the weather resistant garden shed niche along with low maintenance outdoor storage solutions due to being quite taken aback with how convenient their composition is in comparison to traditional wooden huts topped off with roofing felt.
I's a growing market that's in the early days of progressing for the reasons people do not want the hassles associated with conserving, sorting rotting panels nor replacing disintegrated roofs.
My blogging inexperience
To be honest, I found writing naturally without a sales pitch along with putting my own spin on things quite a daunting task at first however over the process of 6 months or so I've enhanced my writing skills to a level I'm extremely happy with.
My inexperience certainly shows looking back at my first posts, they're terrible. I am currently upgrading one per week along with writing a new post, learning a new lesson, sharing posts on social media and generating an ongoing amount of comments that make my website look engaging.
My social media skills are slowly improving.
Loads of followers and re-shares on Twitter, a few boards set up on Pinterest along with a few followers. Google+ is very engaging where many of us share each others posts (my favourite social media platform) whereas I can't seem to get to grips with Facebook, although according to Google Analytics a lot of my traffic comes from there.
Over the next 3-6 months my intentions are to get to grips with Facebook, I have to learn how to accomplish more followers and shares. I would like to complete course 3 of the certification course including regularly writing unique content along with an abundance of interactive comments to achieve higher search engine rankings.
As far as search engine rankings go, I'm improving. Surprisingly I have attained the odd first page status lately which shows I must be improving. Better on Bing and Yahoo for some reason which proves they all have different methods in the way they rank websites.
Conversions, I've had a few but like everyone here, a regular income is my goal.
Hope you enjoyed reading my progress thus far.
Bye for now,
