Considering whether to invest time in a blog, and how you can make it work for you? Then join Melissa Addey in this one-day workshop and find out everything you may need to know.

Does blogging still work? Can you monetise it? How do you pick a suitable topic? How often should you post? All these questions and much more will be covered in this workshop for those considering whether they should invest time in a blog.

In this workshop Melissa looks at blogging and whether it still has an impact (spoiler: it does but it depends how you do it!) and then break it down for beginners, including:

•    Practicalities: which platform to pick and how to      get set up
•    Your audience
•    How to choose your topic
•    What a blog needs from you, commitment-wise
•    What a blog can give you and/or your business
•    How to monetise a blog
•    Dos and don’ts, including how often you need to post and what to share (or not)
•    The possibility of turning your blog into a book
•    And more…

Melissa will be using lots of examples from real-life blogs to show you what works and doesn’t. There will be a main presentation and then a lot of hands-on work so that you make the most of your time with us. After the event you will be sent resource-filled slides from the main talk and a free eBook, Melissa Addey's The Storytelling Entrepreneur, which offers a wealth of ideas for telling your business story. You will leave with a clear to-do list for your own blog and inspired to get started!
