How to Write Your 4 Core Blog Posts
Use these posts to drive traffic to your website, boost your SEO, and build a know, like, and trust relationship with your ideal clients!
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, even if you’re not a blogger you need to have 4 core blog posts that live on your website. Here’s why:
You can use them to drive traffic to your website through Pinterest, SEO, Instagram, Facebook, and Linkedin.
You can answer frequently asked questions with a link while building trust with the potential client.
You can explain what you do in detail that’s separate from your sales page.
The biggest one is the traffic driver. PLUS you can recreate Pinterest pins and Instagram posts for years showcasing the same blog and letting it work for you forever. Here are the 4 topics you need to cover on your blog.

Feature a client
The purpose of this post is to help your ideal client visualize what it would be like to work with you. How they can fit into your world. If someone can see themselves using a product or participating in a service they are FAR more likely to purchase.
TIP: You can still do this even if you don’t have clients yet! Get really clear on who your ideal client is, and create a story of how you helped them. I don’t promote embellishing results or tricking people, but simply give a visual of if someone were to book you. What the experience would look like and showcase the services you offer.

Your unique strategy
Something extremely valuable I heard from Sabrina Philip (business coach) is that people don't buy into someone simply because they like them. It is also extremely hard to get someone to buy from you simply based on likability. That would take years of nurturing the relationship and holding their attention in a very unique, influencer-like way. However, they WILL buy into a proven framework or strategy. Sometimes even on a dime.
If you can showcase a clear, usable, successful tool that your ideal client can use and implement, THAT'S what they're going to buy in to. This is also your chance to again, position yourself as the expert and an authority in your field.
