You've taken blogging courses, perhaps even mine. You've read ebooks. You've looked at frameworks. You know blogging is good for your business.
You have all the head knowledge.
But -- and I get it -- although you know WHAT to do, you're still not sure HOW to do it. You're still not sure how to put what's in your head into action so you can FINALLY get your blog rolling.
The answer isn't another course, ebook, or framework. The answer is SUPPORT.
Imagine if you could work with me personally over 13 weeks.
We'll sit down virtually over a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage to talk about your business. We'll talk about your products and services, your ideal customers, your competitors, what your competitors are blogging about, what your ideal customers are looking for, what keywords make the most sense for you to focus on.
From there, we'll develop a list of content crucial to growing your business with your blog. Specifically, we'll nail down the ideas for two cornerstone blog posts (2,000+ words each), and another six normal-sized blog posts (500-1,500 words)--three that point to your first cornerstone blog post, three that point to your second cornerstone blog post.
Don't freak out! It's a lot of content, but I'm here to help create it every step of the way.
Next, we'll develop an outline for each of those blog posts, one at a time. First, we'll tackle the outline for your first 2,000+ word blog post. I'll guide you on what to say in each section, where to use graphics, where to use images and what kind of images, where to use pull-quotes, bulleted lists, where to include the call-to-action, and other blog post techniques.
It'll be an amazing blog post, one that positions you as an expert and authority in your field!
Then you'll go on your way to write the post we outlined. And get this! You won't have to worry about creating a "perfectly written" post, because you know that I'll be coming in behind you to edit. You know that I'll be taking over to make your post shiny and ready for publication.
Then you'll check this off your list: Cornerstone blog post #1 ... DONE.
We'll then repeat the process for the remaining seven blog posts.
And by the time our work together is over, you'll have eight killer blog posts ready for publication. Two cornerstone blog posts. Six supporting blog posts.
You'll be so happy that you didn't have to spend time watching more modules, or completing assignments. You'll actually be DOING the work of blogging.
And, at the end, you'll be ready to BLOG ON on your own, with an editorial calendar we created while working together.
Here's a summary version of what you get.
Plan your content, and then work your plan. Together we'll create a blog strategy designed to grow your business.
Uncover content gold and message clarity from a deep dive into your services, market, audience, and differentiation.
Tweak strategy, ask questions, create outlines, write. You'll have 30 minutes with me each week for whatever you need.
Learn to make your content shine with developmental and substantive editing; understand the WHYs behind my changes.
Get crystal clear on the benefits you offer and why people should choose you. When you're clear, your content is clear.
Together we'll create two pieces of publication-ready cornerstone content (2,000+ words each) and six pieces of supporting blog content.
When I share the Rapid Results Blog Intensive with people, they inevitably ask, "Renae ... who does the writing?" My answer is ... WE DO! Our work together will be collaborative and iterative.
First we'll look at strategy, which pieces to write. Next, market and messaging--what you should say, and how you should say it. I'll outline the blog posts we're working on to get things started, and then you'll dive in to add your brilliance. Next, I'll dig in and edit, filling holes, asking questions, challenging assumptions, smoothing rough edges, and polishing to a high shine. Then, one more time back to you, and one final time back to me.
Your new content is now ready for your blog--and, soon after, readers!
If you're tired of struggling with your blog ... if you want to grow your writing confidence ... if you want to stop half-a$$ing it and FOR REAL get your blog off the ground ... then I invite you to apply for a spot in the 13-week Rapid Results Blog Intensive today. Because the program is so ... intensive ... and because I'm still doing regular work for my regular clients (I heart my clients!), I can only take on one or two bloggers each quarter.
If you'd like to be one of those bloggers in an upcoming quarter, then ...
Yipee! Thanks to this group I am more intentional about my writing and someone who has been on my list for a long time joined my year-long journey BECAUSE of the Beltane article I sent Monday! Thank you, Renae...!
Rozlyn Warren // Mentor and Transformational Healer
Thank you, Renae!! Your work here is amazing and so generous. I truly appreciate your words, feedback, and mentoring.
Jo Ann Wenner // Transformational Coach and Consultant
During our 13 weeks together, we'll work on setting up your blog, defining your blogging strategy, identifying keywords, and creating an editorial calendar. We'll also write and edit, creating two pieces of cornerstone content (2,000+ words each) and six pieces of supporting content. Half of the supporting blog posts will lead back to the first piece of cornerstone content, the other half will lead to the second.
Here's what the 13 weeks will look like:
Are you someone who thinks, "I'm not a good writer"? If so, the Rapid Results Blog Intensive is PERFECT for you. As we work together, I'll deeply edit your content, explaining the WHYs behind changes so you can improve your craft, which in turn builds your confidence--and your readers' confidence in you. When you write better, with the reader in mind, you'll improve more than words. You'll improve readability, usability, and trust, all of which lead to better results.
Renae Gregoire // The Entrepreneur's Editor
Hello! I'm Renae Gregoire, marketing writer, editor, blogger, and writing coach. I'm pleased that you're considering working with me through the Rapid Results Blog Intensive program.
Here's what I'd like you to know about me:
Renae is simply fantastic at writing and editing. She takes extra steps to ensure that she grasps the facts and nuances of your business and message. She also puts structure around your thoughts and challenges you to improve your thinking, messaging, positioning, and overall marketing. No, she didn't write this recommendation, but I would have had her do so!
Marya Ulis // Chief Marketing Officer
Renae is a throwback to a time (that probably exists only in legend) when craftspeople weren't satisfied until their work was done right. She did absolutely everything I asked, and a great deal more, to ensure I was happy with the project. I expect top work but it was a very pleasant surprise to learn that Renae clearly cared about the success of my project.
J.D. Sallen // CEO
Renae, talk about "beyond expectations!" I can't thank you enough for your work on behalf of my consulting business. While your overall skill and professionalism are outstanding, there are two specific areas that truly stand out. First, your focused expertise in BOTH writing and marketing brings to the table great value for clients (like me) who need integrated support. Second, I am extremely impressed by your ability to get "inside" and understand a business with which you are initially unfamiliar. Not only do you succeed here, but your deep interest in learning about my new business really shined through.
EMORY PETRACK // MD, President
It's not easy to hand over a pile of money to a stranger on the Internet. Even if I'm not a stranger to you, you might still find it hard to decide to invest in yourself and your business in this particular way. Hey, I won't be offended if you prefer to take any one of ... what ... hundreds? ... of blogging courses out there on the Internet.
What I offer is three months of working closely together, with me acting as your partner and guide, helping you to plot a path for your prospects to follow, and then helping you create the blog content you need to get started--content that gives voice to the brilliance within you.
Now, for the three things you need to know:
You will have homework as we start our work together. The initial homework comes during the discovery process, which is when I consume your existing content, content from your competitors, content about your competitors, and any other content you think might be vital for me to get to know you, your business, and your readers. During my research, I'll create a list of questions, and ask you to provide answers as best you can.
Cornerstone content = 2,000+ words. During our work together, we'll create two pieces of cornerstone content, and six pieces of supporting content--three pieces to point back to each piece of cornerstone content. The smaller pieces will range between 500 and 1,500 words.
Sorry, payment plans are not available. Although I do understand cash flow woes, I'm not able to take payment plans for this service.
Your ideal prospects are out there on the web, searching for exactly what you have to offer. But they'll never know what it is you offer ... you'll never connect with them ... you'll never attract them ... if you lack the content that does those things for you. Now is the time. Invest in your success with the Rapid Results Blog Intensive today.
5 Simple Steps to...
Fabulous new content for your readers, by You
Absolutely! If you haven't met me through one of my or others' online programs, then of course you can speak with me first. In that case, please use my booking service to schedule an appointment. I prefer Zoom; if you'd rather speak by phone, please leave a note when you book.
Yes. All told, we'll create approximately 10,000 words in the 13-week program. People have written entire books faster than that. Besides, I've been doing this work for many years, both for entrepreneurs and corporate marketing departments. I don't have to learn on the job.
That is a valid concern. If it's yours, then I urge you to explore my website. Read the pieces in my portfolio. Read my blog. If you like what you "hear," here and there, then chances of you not liking what I do for you are tiny. In all the years I've been helping entrepreneurs create content, only twice has it happened where someone liked what they heard on my website but did not like that same voice in their content. If that should happen with us, then we will part ways, and I will give you a refund in proportion to the work completed.
Great question! I’m a consummate researcher and love to learn and write about new things. Since I’ve been doing this work, I’ve discovered more than I could have imagined about:
To answer your question, I’ll help you develop your content the same way I create ALL content: I’ll learn as much as I can about your business and industry, and find out what your audience wants. That's when we'll be ready to begin our work.
Yes, if you like our work together, you might be interested in following up with my Entrepreneur's Editor package. That package is similar to the Rapid Results Blog Intensive, but we're working together to create OTHER content -- ebooks, web content, lead magnets, whatever content we determine you need for your business.
Heh heh heh. I get this a lot. My last name, Gregoire, sounds just like memoir. But instead of MEM-oir, it’s GREG-oire. The “e” at the end is silent. And yes, it’s French, but I married it. My maiden name is the German “Rost.” (And my first name, Renae, is pronounced like the more commonly spelled “Renee.” My mother said she didn’t want people calling me Ree-Knee, so she spelled my name RenAe. Thanks, Mom!)
I'm a deltiologist. Don't worry; I won't make you look that up. A deltiologist is a postcard collector. I've been a lover of travel and cultures since my early teen years, when I wrote away for "free" travel brochures advertised in my parents' magazines. There was no Internet back then; I had to stamp and mail actual letters! Also back then, in one of those same magazines, I discovered an ad for International Pen Friends, a company offering to connect me with "penpals," people around the world who wanted exchange letters, postcards, and perhaps even small souvenirs with me. I couldn't resist! Since then, I've jump back in and out of the penpal and postcard hobbies over the years, and it's still something I love to do -- when I have time. Oh, and I even started a postcard blog, over at www.thelaptoptraveler.com. If you visit, you'll see that it's way out of date because I've been busy serving customers and raising kids. But I haven't stopped collecting postcards.... One of these days I'll hire someone to scan my collection so I can start learning and posting and sharing again.
