Finding Your Irresistible Words

Finding Your Irresistible Words

I knew that Jenika was something special the very first time I came across her website, Psychology for Photographers. She had a way with words that just pulled me in. I was even more charmed when I met her in person at BlogHer this summer – we were speaking together on a panel, so we went out for pizza the night before our talk to get to know one another even better.

She has a way with words, and a clarity that rings so true. Little bits of wisdom flow so easily, you almost can’t even keep up with them.

I’m in the midst of working through her From Portfolio to Profit Engine booklet, which I plan to review as soon as I am done. Then I learned that she has launched her Irresistible Words course and it is on SALE through November 6th, 2013.

(Psst… Want to get BOTH of them for an amazing deal? Pick up the Business Library Bundle! On sale through Nov. 6th as well!)

Here is her latest video — What Your English Class Should Have Taught You Instead. Just a taste of what the course includes!

If you’re tired of all of your blog posts sounding the same, and feeling like they just aren’t getting the attention they deserve, you should go RIGHT NOW and pick up a copy for yourself. Just reading through the preview copy on her site, I can’t wait to dive in to this. One thing at a time, right? But I did not want to wait to share it with you. Hurry, now, before it is too late! I promise you, Jenika will help with finding your irresistible words and it will make all of your writing even better!

Is Your Business Name Hard to Spell? Make Sure You Can be Found!

Helping Clients Find You - Business of Boudoir Boudoir is a tricky word to spell. I have been writing it all the time for 4 years, and sometimes I still have to look to make sure I spelled it right!

If I struggle to spell it, what about your clients? Are you doing everything you can to make it easy for them to find you?

Whenever I register a new website domain, I make a point to try and think of other common misspellings and register them as well. For example, I now own BusinessOfBoudior.com and will be pointing it to this site shortly.

If people often refer to your business as another name, or if you already have a social media identity that might not match your business name, it is a good idea to register that too. When I went to set up an account on Twitter, I discovered that my name was too long for a username there, so I created @BizOfBoudoir instead. I don’t want to cause confusion if that is what people remember; I registered BizOfBoudoir.com as well.

Both of these will be add-on domains in my hosting account and will be set up to redirect people to this site. (Make sure it is a 301 redirect so you don’t confuse Google!) The instructions on how to set this up vary from one hosting company to another, but if you ask your hosting company they should be able to help you set it up!

Make it easy for people to find you. Register the frequent misspellings, so that way they always know where to go!
