If you’re like me — a small business owner, entrepreneur or sole proprietor who wants to get more business traction from blogging — then drop in on The Business Blogging Telesummit. The online event runs December 12-16 and you can register here for free.
Now, please don’t be jealous, but I have a head start on you. You see, I worked behind the scenes helping to pull together this special event for business blogging coach, Tom Treanor of Right Mix Marketing, and his equally knowledgeable event partner, Maruxa Murphy of Instant Expert Branding. I was incredibly privileged to learn invaluable tips and secrets on how to boost business success through blogging — directly from the mouths of the “blogging stallions” that Tom and Maruxa corralled under one virtual roof. Among other things, I learned:
- How small businesses can move from nothing to a significant web presence
- What online visibility is and how to become more visible where it counts
- How to write better blog posts (Blog Writing 101)
- How to blog more efficiently (save time and effort, and get more results)
- How to guest post effectively and find the right opportunities
- How to connect Blogging, SEO and Social Media
- How to find and connect with your ideal audience

Learn from Successful Business Blogging Entrepreneurs
I don’t use the word “extraordinary” lightly to describe this event because in fact, it goes beyond your usual telesummit offerings. As far as I can tell, The Business Blogging Telesummit is the first online event that includes a mix of both expert blogging coaches and real-world entrepreneurs who are currently blogging to build and expand their businesses.
The neatest thing about this combination is seeing how various entrepreneurs independently validate blogging experts’ advice. You’ll get a perspective on blogging from a variety of innovative consultants in the service industry, including interior deign, waterproofing, dog training, BBQ, crafts, weddings, legal services and writing. You’ll also be quite amazed, maybe even inspired, by each entrepreneur’s creativity and passion.
Rock-solid, Hype-free Business Blogging Advice
When you get to know Tom Treanor as I have, you quickly realize that he is a great spokesperson for small or mid-sized business owners.

Uncannily, you’ll hear him ask just the right questions of all the experts and entrepreneurs he interviews for The Business Blogging Telesummit, as though he were right inside your brain.
What’s more, in promoting this event, Tom makes none of the wild promises nor any of the get-rich-quick schemes that are often dangled in front of business owners to get at their limited resources or take advantage of their impatience or desperation. In a very even-keel manner, Tom simply showcases the different blogging strategies that have worked to bring in considerably more business for start-ups and moguls alike. Take it or leave it.
It’s Lonely at the Top. Join Me.
Tom cites a study that establishes an astonishing fact: More than 90 percent of business purchases today begin with online research. Increasingly, they conclude online as well. That fact alone should compel you to sign up for The Business Blogging Telesummit. You’ll discover why a mere “brochure website” simply doesn’t cut it any more and how a variety of proven blogging strategies will not only connect you to new customers and clients, but also generate more business from your existing ones.
Sign up for one more reason: To become as smart as me about business blogging. Frankly, I can barely stand the loneliness of being the “know it all” up here. Thanks to the summit, I know exactly what I am doing wrong in this blog and how I can do better with what I’m doing right. All this new-found insight can only lead to better New Year in terms of productivity and profit.
