Blogging Magic – Did You Catch The Blogging Fever Yet?

by on March 17, 2014 · 27 comments

in Blogging

Can you imagine that there is a new blog on the internet every half second! Yes, that’s over 3 million new blogs each and every month. Those numbers are so huge that they’re almost hard to believe.

With that in mind, does that mean that every new blogger knows what to do with their blog? Does it mean that they’ve got the basis about blogging to insure that their blog will last and grow? I can assure you that the answer to these two questions is NO.

The fact that so many new blogs come into the scene each day, is not a guarantee that those blogs will stand the test of time (as a matter of fact I knew of quite a few that have come and go), and the reason why, it’s because many new bloggers (not to say most new bloggers), have absolutely no idea about what it really takes to create, maintain, oversee and promote a blog.  Unfortunately, if you don’t have a clue about any of those things, you won’t stand a chance and you might get discourage before you even start.

On the other hand, you may be someone who already has a blog, but you’re feeling stuck, because you can’t seem to be able to figure out what to do to promote your blog far and wide, and your traffic is showing the effect of this.  So, even if you have come thus far, you’re asking yourself if you should keep on going or throw the towel already.

Or yet again, you may have a great blog and some type of traffic, but you’re still looking for that perfect strategy that’s going to help your blog grow and grow on a regular basis. I have to admit myself that I am in such category.  I wish I had that perfect strategy that I could apply day in and day out and see my blogs grow like mushrooms. Now I know that some of the folks reading this blog, feel the same way.

Well, I’ve got some news for you!

If any of the above applies to you, here come some help for you!

Here Comes Blogging Magic

If you are a reader of this blog, you know that I do not promote products often at all, and if I do, it’s because I know the product well or at least I know the creator(s) of such product and I personally trust them.

Well, as recently as yesterday, I spend 2 hours over the phone with both Donna and David Merrill to chat and interview them about their brand new product called Blogging Magic (affiliate link).

I asked them a few questions that I felt you might like to know the answers to. So here we go…

With so Many Blogs out there, does the World Really Need another Blog? And Particularly Mine?

Well, according to David Merrill, do you know that in the marketing world it’s always a good thing to do whatever other people are doing? Why? Well, if so many people are doing it it’s because there’s lot of demand for it.  Blogging is has a huge market.

For example, Facebook has already over a billion members, but does it mean that because there’re already so many people there, you shouldn’t be on Facebook?  Of course not. Even though there are already over a billion people on Facebook, chances are that if you come on there you’ll be able to create a following of your own.

Now to take another example that David mentioned, let’s take pizza restaurants. There’re a lot of pizza places out there, aren’t they? Yet, there are new pizza places opening each and every day as well.  Are they going to be able to create a clientele? You bet they are. People love pizzas. As a matter of fact, you’ll have more success with a common pizza place, then if you were to open a less common type of restaurant.

Well, it’s the same thing with blogs. People love blogs, and no matter how many blogs there are out there.  If you do things right, you’ll find people who will appreciate your blog.

What About if I don’t Like Writing?

Now, this is a question I’ve asked David and Donna, as I was thinking of someone I know who can’t resolve himself to start a blog, because he doesn’t like to write.

Well, David says that if you don’t like to write, you need to know that written content is not the only content type that you can put on a blog. For example, you can create video tutorials instead, or you can hired someone (such as me) to write the content of your blog for you.  Of course it all depends on what you can afford, and, you could do a mixture of both.

What will I Learn with Blogging Magic?

OK, I’ve just picked a very small list of all the things that will be available to you on Blogging Magic, but here are few of them…

1)      For one thing, Blogging Magic will teach you to start blogging correctly from the get go, and thus, avoid all types of downfall mistakes that new bloggers are making all the time. You’ll learn how to set your blog correctly, how to host your blog, and how to set up all the details that all blogs need to be able to run smoothly.

2)      You will learn how to get the right domain. This might seem easy enough, yet you could be making a huge mistake just by choosing the wrong domain name for your blog. I’ve done that and many people have too.

3)      You will learn how to brand yourself and become an authority, an expert and a team leader in your niche.

4)      You will learn specific strategies to get traffic and increase that traffic over time.

5)      You’ll be learning how to build an email list. A must for any blogger.  And on top of that you will learn how to make sure your emails get opened.

6)      In order to create a list, you need a good opt-in form, and you will learn how to create a killer opt-in form with Blogging Magic, as well.

7)      You will learn how to use social media the right way to promote your blog…

and much, much more…

As a bonus you will also have …

  • Access to David and Donna’s Private Facebook Groups
  • Benefit from one-on-one consultations where you’ll be free to ask all the questions you might have
  • Free admission to kick off webinar

And more…

You will the list of all the details on this page by clicking the access now button at the bottom, as well as some testimonials about Donna and David Merrill.

About Donna and David Merrill

Both Donna and David Merrill are seasoned bloggers, and they complement each other so well.

David is more on the technical side of blogging and Donna is more on the relationship making of blogging.

If you are brand new to blogging you’ll realize that you are going to need both to be a successful blogger.  Another option you might have is hire someone to do what you don’t feel you’re good at doing, but you should know at least the basics which you will learn with Blogging Magic.

I met Donna and David a little over 2 years ago, and when I met them, I met them separately on their respective blog.  I didn’t even know they were married, and found that out soon after.  I met them through social media and blog commenting groups. Since then, Donna has become one of my most faithful readers of all my 3 blogs.

Donna is a great people person, and she thrives in building relationships online with other bloggers and online marketers. David is a very educated and smart guy who knows his stuff and will explain it to you point by point in a very easy way for you to understand.

Both Donna and David Merrill are good hearted people who want to give a hand to folks who are new online and new at blogging and could use some help.

I want to end this post by saying that I vouched for them and I’m sure that if you choose to purchase any level of their product, you’ll be glad you did. If for any reason you weren’t satisfy, they offer a 30 day money back guarantee.

Hi Sylviane,

Thank you for doing such a great interview. I have to say, it was so great talking to you. Yes, we did spend so much time on the phone because we had so much fun doing it together.

I just had to create this product for both newbies and seasoned bloggers… to help them along the way. Many of my customers already have expressed big problems integrating social media into their blogging. They don’t know how to put their best foot forward out there. When I review their blogs, and have a strategy session with them, I am so surprised there are no comments, or very few. Their blogs are informational, have great content, but they lack the engagement and social media skills to rock it out.

So far, I’ve been teaching so much of that. Encouraging them to “get out there” and putting them on some groups appropriate to their niche. I think the strategy sessions one gets with this product has been so effective so far. People just need to talk to someone in the trenches already, and then, “aha”… they get it.

It is one thing to develop a product, but we’ve worked hard to take it to another level of helping those who purchase it. A little hand-holding is needed, but very rare.

I have purchased many products in my day, and have spent tons of money with a few guru’s out there. Yes, I came away with lots of knowledge, but it always puzzled me why they didn’t have an ongoing support system set up to answer some questions as students attempt to apply this knowledge.

That’s how David and I got the idea of a one on one call, A Facebook Group, plus our main goal which is the membership site which will be a place for people to go for ongoing training.

Again, I appreciate you taking the time for this interview and David and I are here to answer questions your readers may have.

Hi Donna,

You’re very welcome and it was a pleasure to me to speak to both of you yesterday as well.

I think you’re right, the most missing thing when we buy a product is follow up. As a matter of fact I purchased a product about 6 months ago that I know now was well over priced, and while the woman who sells it was all friendly and ready to answer my questions through Facebook before I purchased the product it really slowed down until it became non-existent all together once I had purchased it.

That’s why I’ve never promoted her stuff, and that’s why I’m promoting yours, because it comes down to be a decent person (or people) when we expect people to purchase our products. Shame on those who aren’t :(

It was fun for me to write this. Thanks for being first here and have an excellent week ahead!

Hey Sylviane,

Good to see you back and highlighting the Merrill’s here. I know that they’ve worked SO hard on this product and after so much stuff that went on behind the scenes they were finally able to release it to the public.

I say this all the time because it’s true but I think that I would have possibly done so much better had I started blogging now then five years prior. There was not this kind of information anywhere to learn this stuff and unfortunately I had to learn a lot of it the hard way. It was a major struggle for me.

I think for people who don’t want to wait years to get their blogs to where they want them to be need to learn this stuff now. As time went by and I continued to learn more stuff it doesn’t really take that long to get the attention of others but trust me, you need everything in place before you do that. It’s just much smarter that way.

Great share and glad you three had a nice chat. Look at all the cool stuff that came from that!

You guys have a great week and thanks again for going into more detail about their product. I know it will help a LOT of bloggers.

Hi Adrienne,

I can relate to this very well too. Whatever I’ve learned about blogging I also had to learn it the hard way, not matter what stuff I joined there wasn’t anything such as Donna and David’s product here. Gosh if I could have learned all the ins and outs of blogging for such a small investment, I would have been in without a second thought :)

I discovered blogging back in 2006, which in internet years it’s ages ago, and back then I had no clue – nada – about blogging, plus back then there were more people like me than those who did know what blogging was all about.

It’s nice to be back and I’ve tried my very, very best to keep my hopes, prayers and thoughts up – everything I possibly think of to make my Sophie get better, and thus her mom better by the same token ;)

Thanks for coming by and have a wonderful productive week!

Thanks Adrienne!

Yes, we can remember those years when we first started. So many different directions we went into. That’s the motivation for the product.

Glad you enjoyed our interview. Sylviane and I had a BLAST!

Blogging Magic eh? Sounds interesting enough!

Hi Syviane, Donna, and David! I know a lot of people that can benefit from this so I gladly passed along. Heck, I think I could benefit from it myself as well! :) My biggest issues are finding the best way to brand myself. I mean, I know my name is out there but how do I make it bigger with what time I have. I’ve also never used emailing lists and my “opt in” is just the email subscribe. Hmmm…. I might have to think about this one myself, seriously!

Thanks so much for sharing it! Great info!

Hi Bren,

I know what you mean. It’s not because we’ve been blogging for a while that we’ve got all this answers yet, I certainly can say that for myself as well.

Well, if you want to give it a try, at least those are people you know, don’t you? I tell you that makes a huge difference. Just about every time I bought from a strangers there were some disappointment involved that’s why I do not promote people I don’t know.

Thank you for coming by and I hope you share this with some people you know that may need it :)

Hi Bren,

An email opt-in is always good to have, as long as you keep up some engagement with your followers. Of course you have time issues..we all do. But think backwards Bren. What would you like to “brand” yourself with? Then take steps with your email list to do so.

Hi Sylviane,

Wow! You have really described the formula the blogging magic product teaches so very well. Thanks for interviewing Donna and David and bringing their awesome product on the forefront here.

And you are right. Not interested in writing or not having writing skills isn’t good enough an excuse. Everyone needs a blog and everyone deserves it.

If somebody doesn’t know how to do it right, they should consider the Blogging Magic! That’s it! Period!

Kumar

Hi Kumar,

Yes, I agree if anyone has any issue with blogging they should consider Blogging Magic.

When I started blogging if there had been anything like it I would have certainly invested in such product. Frankly it’s very affordable too :)

Thank for coming, Kumar.

Hi Kumar,

Thank you for your kind words! There are so many “excuses” people have, but then say they are “gonna” do a blog.

Well, if someone wants to do it, they have to first find out why they are making excuses. Write a list down, then tackle one excuse at a time. We are not all “writers” like Sylviane is, but we do improve as we go.

Silvia it is great that you are supporting Donna and David because I think they have a great message and hope they do well with Blogging Magic. When I first starred blogging and landed on Donna’s blog she was so helpful. I couldn’t image writing something new each week and then find people to read it. Donna then spreads the word through her Facebook account supporting my blog. Supporting me has made me want to continue. Writing is not my forte but I now have a following.

I hope the best for their product as well, and from what I’ve heard so far I think that they’ll do great.

Hello Sylvaine, what a great overview of Donna’s Blogging Magic, or should I say the Merrills LOL I have been reading all about this lately and I am so proud of them for putting this together.

I did buy a course when I first got started and it cost me a lot more then these two are charging and I imagine they have a lot of perks added to it as well.. What an awesome product!!

Thanks for sharing.. Chery :))

P.S.
I did get to your blog from Kingged and did leave a comment and kingged for you there :))

Hi Chery,

Yes, I’ve seen you on Kingged as well, and I’m trying to get to more new blogs (for me) such as yours.

Like you I’ve spent so much money on stuff, yet I don’t think I’ve learned what people can learn with the Merrill’s product. I’ve learned the hard way. And frankly, as you said, what a small price to pay. If I was a beginner I’ll dig right in!

Great Interview, Sylviane :)

Like you, I am one of those people who wish they had a better strategy. I am certainly trying, and I could say that I am improving (I do see improvement in my Analytics dashboard), but I am still not happy.

Sometimes, I wonder, is it because my strategy is not good enough? Or is it because I am not implementing it properly? (I have felt this many times, even though I accomplished everything on my checklist).

I do spend some of my free time (I have lots this week, since it’s Spring break) on watching things. But, there is a growing urge/thought on my mind…telling me that I am just wasting time not doing anything productive (there is also another part of my mind telling me that it’s Spring break..so, enjoy it, take it easy).

I really am confused on who I should listen to (but, as far as I can tell, I am listening to the second guy).

I have done quite a few other things (related to blogging), so I don’t feel too bad. Hopefully, I will figure everything out soon (Perhaps I will have a better strategy at the end of this break).

Anyways, thank you for sharing this awesome interview :)

Hi Jeevan,

I think that lots of people feel like you. Right now, I have other sides of my business that I’ve got to take care of, but when it comes to my blogs there are not nearly where I want them to be. Especially the other two, but this one is not on top yet either ;)

What happens is that it takes lots of time and dedication to get where we want. Some experts even say that we should build a following BEFORE we get a blog going, which is basically what you’ve done. But of course, there are many other things that needs to be done on a daily basis.

I’m sorry I haven’t been at your blog in a while, but between being sick for a week, and then my kitty being sick and then having had to take my Certified Coaching test, there was a lot on my plate. Will get there soon, though :)

Hey Sylviane,

After reading this, I just became jealous of those new bloggers thats coming in LOL… But then again I don’t have to be because there’s always more room to learn other strategies!

Blogging Magic sounds like a great program for them to get involved with and on top of that, they’ll be working with Donna and David which in my book is a big plus!

Sylviane you have describe their program to the “T”. This is what all bloggers need, beginner or intermediate. We all run into the problem of being “stuck” and we want to push forward and go beyond our limitations.

Bloggers look for support like this! And I really like answer to the question “with so many blogs out there, does the world need another blog?” I love the pizza example because it’s it true. Since there are a lot of pizza restaurants and everyone loves pizza, then you definitely will build a clientele. Same goes for blogging!

Thanks for sharing this interview of Donna and David! I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Hi Sylviane,

Great to see you back!

Thank you for touching upon this subject matter. The blogging industry has been around for years, and it\’s really quite painful to watch the majority of new blogs open up just to waddle around clumsily and then later die off in anonymity. I\’ve met a lot of people with strong potential in writing, but just don’t know how to deal with the content they create or how to package it for actual community engagement. Or they post and post tons of content, but traffic is zip.

What most people don’t understand is that blogs are like newly opened diners standing in well-hidden nooks. No one is gonna know that you serve the MOST AMAZING apple pie if you don’t advertise even once. You can maybe count on word of mouth, but the thing is, you need people who are capable of sharing your apple pie with people who matter (food experts, apple pie fanatics, etc) and not just anyone who can’t appreciate a good apple pie.This is where networks come in. You share samples of your apple pie with these networks.Relatives. Friends. Pie fairs. Bake-offs. Give them a taste of what you’ve got. Once you’ve proven yourself, watch them flock to your diner no matter how small and hidden it is.

I visited Donna and David’s video and I think they explain this in an even better way. I especially believe in the line “Blogging is a two way conversation.” It’s not just about the blogger. It’s about who the content speaks to and how they can respond in turn. It’s a great program for any blogger, whether they’re starting out, or already have blogs but can’t seem to properly utilize it. I know a couple of acquaintances who may need it, and I’ll be sure to lead them to the Merrill’s course!

Best of luck to Donna and David!

All the best,
Micah
