Goals For 2021 To Grow Your Blog

Goals For 2021 To Grow Your Blog

*Thank you to Constant Contact for kindly sponsoring this post.

My goals for the new year include spending more time on my blog. I love working on my blog and spending time on new projects. One thing that I haven’t spent more than a few minutes on is learning the ins and outs of email marketing. I wrote a list of 3 goals for myself for 2021 and becoming proficient in email marketing was one of them. When I set a goal for myself, I like to set myself for success. So, I set up a call with a Marketing Advisor at Constant Contact. They can do it all from email, to social, and to search marketing tools. I can’t wait to get the conversation started and learn more about online marketing for my blog.

Paired with award-winning marketing advisors who know marketing across industries inside and out—and provide practical advice at every step of the way — they offer the right approach to online marketing to achieve the results you want. 

Last week I set up an account with Constant Contact. They are wizards over there and can do it all! After I set up my account, I booked a call with one of their Marketing Advisors and I got to ask them all the questions. They gave me tons of great advice and made me feel so much more knowledgeable in a short amount of time. 

On the call, we discussed tons of different tasks like 

  • Text to sign up
  • Sign up forms
  • Welcome email
  • Thank you emails
  • Creating a contact list

The Marketing Advisor first wanted me to tell her about my business and what I was looking to gain. She was a great listener and knew just what questions to ask. She made great recommendations based on the goals I mentioned. She was really excited to share with me the text to sign up option which I never even considered before. I was surprised how easy that tool is to use, and I can’t wait to start using it. 

While we were on the phone, she walked me through creating a welcome email for new subscribers. There are tons of templates to pick from that you can completely customize to your liking. I loved how you could change everything to fit your branding. The site was so intuitive and easy to use. If I did have a question, I had my screen shared with the Advisor so we could be on the same page- literally.

The last thing that we talked about was creating a contact list. She let me know I could input my existing contacts very easily and even showed me the process. I ended the call feeling like I knew so much about email marketing, when I started the call feeling like I knew nothing. The advisor did such a great job explaining everything and making sure she was going over the features that would best suit my business. 

We even set up a call for next month so they can check in and make sure I am meeting my goals. I am seriously so impressed with them and how easy they made it to tackle email marketing.
