Audit Report and Other Announcements...

Greetings, Readers!
Tax time is upon us.
And many of us will be immersed in fact finding, finger-nail biting, and analyzing financial transactions for 2014. A proverbial walk in the park for some, a "necessary evil" for most.

But, did you know that similar measures should be taken to assess your blogging status and the "return" on your sweat equity? That's right.

A wise man once said, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

In a "blog fog?"

I'm here to help. I offer writers and bloggers an objective evaluation of their site; identifying ways to help increase your traffic, your visibility and your bottom line.
Though I don't boast a huge readership, I have garnered some important online recognition: Top 25 Writing Blogs in 2014, The Power 100 Top Writing Blog in 2013, 60 of the Best Minds in the Blogosphere.


This has allowed me to earn a side income through ads placed at my site, to be considered a thought leader within the blogging community, and to successfully sell my books and services. And you can too.

HERE'S HOW TO KNOW WHETHER IT'S TIME FOR AN AUDIT:
  • Your blog growth is stagnant.
  • You receive very few comments on published posts (6 comments or less routinely).
  • Your blog is not generating income (other than a few books sold).
  • You're running out of ideas. Or running out of steam.
  • You need help in establishing your goals for 2015.
Here's what a recent client had to say about her BLOG AUDIT:

"I hired Jennifer for a Blog Consultation. With Jennifer's help, I could see my blog more objectively. She gave me very clear and concrete ways to improve my entire site. Within hours, I felt way more confident about my online presence. She's friendly, too. Even in her emails, she provides service with a smile."

If you're on board, let's get busy. For a limited time only, you can get in on this offer for just $29.00, instead of the regular price of $50.00.
(My competitor charges over a hundred bucks for a similar service)!

I'm happy to answer any questions prior to signing up. Shoot me an email at Gemsjen@yahoo.com.
Why not make 2015 a year to try something new and reach new heights?!
