How Can I Help You?


The #1 question everyone wants to know is: What works? What works in marketing? What works to sell more, earn more, and drive more results?
Of course, the answer is "it depends". I don't have all the answers, but I'm committed to bringing you the very best whilst keeping it real and honest as I go.
What works for one person might not work for another.

The key is discovering what works for you, and I'm here to help you do just that



Let's talk about your project !

What People Are Saying


“Jo is one of those rare writers who really "gets" not only the art of writing but the business and promotional sides as well. In addition to her books and e-books on Italy, she's done a great service for the writing community through her Promo Day efforts, and anyone taking her on in a writing or editorial capacity would certainly benefit from her practical knowledge and experience in that area.” - Jennifer Mattern, Owner, JH Mattern Communications


“Jo is an energetic, self-motivated and highly organized marketer. She knows how to pull a project together in a timely fashion, putting elements in place ahead of schedule so things come off without a hitch. I value her advice, her writing style and her ideas.” - Sandy Lender, Author, Editor and Writing Consultant


“I've worked with Jo as a presenter for her Promo Day online conference and partnered with her on a small writers' conference in Rome. This woman is dynamite! She's organized and marketing savvy. She's prompt and personable. How lucky we are that we need no longer be constrained by oceans." - Carolyn Howard-Johnson, Instructor UCLA Extension Writers' Program, UCLA

August Challenges


Our focus for August is on content gaps. 

We've already looked at our past and current blog content in previous months of this Blog Audit Challenge so we should now have a better idea of the type of blog content we want to produce and why. We've tidied up our older posts and strengthened our writing style, voice, and design. Now it's time to work on filling any content gaps.

A content gap is the difference between what a person is searching for and what they find online. It's the content that is missing from your blog. 

The August challenges:


1. Analyse your current content and look for content gaps

What blog posts are doing the best in terms of traffic and engagement? Is your blog missing additional blog posts that could add to those topics? When you worked on your plan of action for the January tasks you should have identified the direction you want to take your blog. What content are you missing that will help you get closer to your goals for your blog?

2. Visit other blogs in your niche and see what they offer that you don't

I love visiting other book bloggers sites to see what types of content they are producing. It's a great font of inspiration.

Just to be clear, I'm not suggesting stealing other people's content. That is a big no no. What I am saying is that if you come across a great blog post on another site on a topic that fits a content gap on your own blog, you can use it as inspiration to write your own unique view of the topic. 

For example, if a blogger did a blog post listing their "top 10 books of all time" you could do the same on your own blog. The books wouldn't be the same. The post would be in your own blogs style, and design. You just adapted the idea for the post. 

This can also be a great way to connect with other blogs in your niche because you can give that blogger a shout out in your post as being the inspiration behind your post. "I saw this blog post about .... on the ....blog and thought it was a great idea. Here's my take on the topic..." (This also does wonders for external link power that we looked at in the June Challenges).

By the end of the month you should have a good list of blog post ideas to fill your content gaps.

July Challenges


Our focus for July is on quality content. 

The good news is that we've already been working on this a bit over the past few months. Between updating our design, SEO, and links, we've already improved the quality of our blog posts. Now it's time to get down to the meat of the content though. 

The July challenges:


1. Determine whether your older posts meet your current standards. 

Is the information included in your blog posts up to date? Have your older blog posts become outdated or irrelevant? 

Delete or update any blog posts that no longer fit with your current standards. You may also want to rewrite parts of certain blog posts to make sure they match your current voice and style. 

2. Check for errors

Check all blog posts for grammatical errors and spelling mistakes.
