How to Makeover Your Blog to Get More Traction (with Julie Solomon)

Oh, blogs, how little we speak of thee. Facebook and Instagram get most of the marketing love, but that blog you meant to start three years ago should actually be a fundamental piece of your business. The foundation, not an extremity.

“That’s where the heart lives. That’s where the story and brand of the business truly stems from and truly lies.”

That’s how Julie Solomon approaches her own blog. She’s a blogging expert and thriving entrepreneur, so we’re taking notes. Her blog acts as a resource for other bloggers, creatives, and influencers to level up their brand, business, and income. She’s killin’ it.

Amy Porterfield linked up with Julie to talk about the blog hustle and the crucial connection between blogging and successful businesses. Plus, Julie shares her strategies for blogging that get real results (i.e., awesome engagement and traffic). Who says you can’t teach an old blog new tricks?
