Stats

At the time of publishing, Suzie Speaks has received over 1,200,000 views. Here are my readership stats:

  • WordPress: 11,000 +
  • Twitter: 8,900
  • Facebook: 800 +
  • Pinterest: 10,300 +

Of all of the blogging regrets that I have, my lack of knowledge when developing my blog and hesitation when setting up my social media accounts are the biggest. Why?

My social media is now responsible for HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of referrals of my total views.

The problem with social media is that (during the initial set-up months in particular) it can incredibly time consuming, even when using schedulers. Posting a blog post now doesn’t just involve pressing the publish button – I think about keywords and SEO, create a pinnable image for Pinterest and then pin it, tweet it using specific hashtags, share it on Flipboard and then share it again into specific Facebook groups. How, when and where I share it will depend on the specific day and time so that they get the maximum audience.

And that’s just the beginning. I have created interesting Pinterest boards that fit within the themes that I cover, along with a successful group board, and participate in link-ups (even starting my own which is now the biggest blog sharing hashtag on Twitter at the weekends) and various Twitter chats. I share high quality pins and tweet interesting posts from others. I follow a daily checklist to make sure that I don’t forget anything.

Sound exhausting? Don’t even know where to start? Don’t have the time?

What if someone could do that FOR YOU?

Here’s what just some of my clients had to say about my advertising and social media management services…

If you’re an author or blogger who wants to grow their stats, if you’re busy and struggling to manage your social media, or perhaps you just want to focus on something else, then Suzie’s your gal. There are few people I’ve met online that are as shrewd, talented and social media savvy as Suzie. In my first month I saw my follower growth (per month) quadruple compared to my efforts the previous month, and my referrals from Pinterest saw a 90% increase on the previous month.  As far as I’m concerned Suzie takes growth hacking to the next level. But one of the things I love most about working with her, is that I don’t have to do a thing. I sit back, concentrate on writing and she takes care of Twitter and Pinterest. I genuinely cannot recommend working with Suzie more … Sacha Black

As an independent author, having a presence online is vital. I’ve learned that by employing the services of Suzie Speaks I have been able to market my site, attract a wider audience and sell more books without spending hours campaigning. Shelley Wilson, Motivate Me Now

She is very skilled at what she does and has helped me significantly grow both my Twitter and Pinterest followers. Because of her efforts, 50% of my blog views now come from Pinterest vs 0 when I started working with her – Ana, Project Life Wellness

My Pinterest views went from 104 page views to 1263… Suzie has given me great ideas to implement for both platforms and is in touch with the current news of social mediaTiffany, A Girl and Her Passport

I have used Suzie’s services to help widen the reach of my blog, Love, Laughter & Truth. I have been very pleased with the response to Suzie’s work and she really does have so much expertise around blogging and using social media to reach a wider audience. Just as importantly Suzie is an absolute pleasure to work with – friendly, professional and gets the job done efficiently and effectively. I couldn’t recommend her services highly enough. Thank you, Suzie! – Matt – Love, Laughter and Truth

My followers on Pinterest have gone from 3 to 3200 and I receive hundreds of views a month which is pretty amazing, plus I’ve met some great new bloggers, which has been a nice bonusHelen, Journey to Ambeth

I was a new-ish blogger and rebranding my blog when I started working with Suzie. It was invaluable to have an experienced blogger available to help me through the complicated process. Suzie helped ensure all my social media branding was consistent and patiently answered my endless questions. She helped me get started on Canva, work more effectively on Pinterest and showed me the value (and enjoyment) of interacting with other bloggers through Facebook Groups and Twitter chats. A month or so after working with Suzie my stats had trebled – so I was well chuffed! I’d recommend working with Suzie to any blogger out there looking for some help in getting their blog up and running or revamped. In my book, she’s a star! Jill – Midlife Smarts

Suzie has managed areas of my social media for a while now and is extremely dependable in her support and guidance. Her organisation and management has enabled my blog to be a constant presence in the social media world and I have seen very positive and consistent results. I would highly recommend Suzie as a Social Media Manager. Donna – Jot to Jot

I worked with Suzie for one month while I was building my business. She managed my Pinterest and Twitter accounts and not only did she completely take on full responsibility for both of those, so also massively increased engagement. I got a lot more exposure on Pinterest which is now converting into much more web traffic, as with Twitter. I got to connect with a lot of people in my line of work in Twitter thanks to Suzie tweeting almost daily on my behalf. She also got me added to a lot of Pinterest group boards, optimised my profile and made me look so much more professional on both platforms. She made ten graphics for my blog posts and a couple of landing pages which got great engagement on both platforms and I’m continually repinning them. They’re still converting into web traffic thanks to her great copy. I’d love to work with Suzie again in the future. She’s very friendly and always responds to my messages, no matter how busy she is. I can’t recommend her services enough to busy professionals who need someone to take on that big part of maintaining a business and helping you to grow online. Charlotte – Charlotte Produces

Blog of the Day: Lorna from Gin & Lemonade

Ever wondered what to do when the power is out?

Meet Lorna! She’s the creator of Gin & Lemonade and a prolific blogger. 

I’ve written about Gin and Lemonade before – Lorna has become well-known within the blogging community and I’ve watched her blog (and content) grow and evolve enormously within the last few years, particularly as she moved over from dot com to a new self-hosted blog. 

Lorna lives in Skye, writes, reads and lives quite happily with her husband, their daughter and lots of books. She’s in her 30’s, is a wife, a mother, and is a wheelchair-user. She explains more in her rather epic ‘About’ page: Continue reading

The Viking Picture Perfect Event: A Photography Masterclass with Elouisa Georgiou

Last week I was invited to a Digital Photography Masterclass with Viking, given by professional photographer Elouisa Georgiou.

I love taking photos – amassing thousands of images over the years in various folders on my computer and blog – but usually find it easier to use my phone for the ease of taking a quick picture without having to go through the hassle of carrying a heavy camera around and the option of immediately editing and sharing across my social media. However, this masterclass was a great opportunity to develop some of my skills using a DSLR – something that I rarely use – and I asked The Bloke to give me a crash course on the basics beforehand.

The event took place at Dirty Martini in Birmingham, and I was joined by other bloggers in a Christmas-themed setting as Elouisa introduced us to her work and some of the techniques she uses to create different effects on her images.

Creating a Social Media Strategy and Checklist for Your Blog

Creating a Social Media Strategy and Checklist for Your Blog

One of my biggest blogging regrets (and I’ve said this many times), is the amount of time that I completely ignored my social in the first few years of publishing my posts. My social media accounts are now responsible for about 75% of my daily traffic, have introduced me to thousands of bloggers all over the world and enabled me to build up my own little business within the blogging community.

Social media is by far the most powerful tool we have as bloggers at our disposal, and developing a strategy that utilises it effectively can potentially take a blog to the next level, often with minimum effort, with the added bonus being that most things are completely free! And once everything is set up, it’s fairly quick and easy to update! 

But where to start? Most of us already have a social media account for connecting with family and friends, whether it be Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Snapchat and/or Instagram to name but a few, but even the suggestion of using these as a promotional tool sends many bloggers into a confusing spiral.

The Annual Bloggers Bash 2019: The Bash is Back!

The Bash is back! Yes, preparations and planning are under way for the 5th Annual Bloggers Bash, to be held in Central London on 15th June 2019! And this year we have a brand new website which will serve as the hub of all things Bash and Bash Awards! Check it out here:

http://www.annualbloggersbash.com

I’ve been to every single event, I’m now on the committee and I credit the first Bash as being the catalyst for giving me the confidence to make the (rather scary) leap into blogging as a career. I’ve made friends through this event that I now see and speak to regularly in real life, and it is the highlight of my blogging year.

Never heard of the Annual Bloggers Bash? Continue reading

Despondency – The Daily Blogging Battle

The last few weeks have been pretty amazing, particularly with the once-in-a-lifetime experiences that The Bloke and I have participated in for his birthday. I’ve also had quite a buzz from blogging every day over the last week, rediscovering my enjoyment of simply writing things down and interacting with the community. I spent hours putting together a large and detailed post yesterday, sent it out across my social media, replied to my comments and then settled in for the evening. I always get a huge sense of satisfaction when I’ve done large post – those are the ones that are often evergreen and bring in the most amount of views over a long period of time. Continue reading

Reconnecting

2018 has been quite a mixed year for blogging, so I took a little break for a little while. However, I’ve started to develop my posting schedule, have suddenly found myself with a whole list of content ideas and was quickly reminded of the sheer joy it brings and just how much I missed it. I also miss the connections that I have with some of my online friends and their posts… 

During October a number of my writer friends start to plan for National November Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) with the goal being to write 50,000 words. To coincide with this, I’ve set myself the challenge of participating in my own little National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) but on my own terms and will be posting every single day for the entirety of November.  Continue reading

I’ve Been Shortlisted!

It’s the start of a new day, new week and new month and the weather is glorious. As always, I know it is going to be busy over the next few weeks, but there’s something about the beginning of a month that feels incredibly motivating, even if I’m still tired from the day before…

I had some amazing news on Friday. Last month I discovered that I had been nominated for Blogger of the Year at the Birmingham Awards, with the shortlist of finalists to be announced at the end of September. I honestly didn’t expect anything would come of it – those of you who follow the blog regularly will know that I love my adopted city (having lived here for 17 years now) and write about what I experience in and around Birmingham within many of my posts, but as I don’t have a specific niche dedicated to it like many of those who have been shortlisted in previous years I didn’t think I would make it past the first round. I nervously kept checking the website on the announcement day, my heart beating out of my chest when I saw the link appear… Continue reading

Getting My Mojo Back

National Writing Day

It’s National Writing Day and for the first time in almost a month I actually have the urge to write… I was having a discussion with a bloggy friend a while ago and he talked about needing to get his mojo back. That’s exactly what my problem has been – my mojo up and left without saying goodbye.

I haven’t properly been near the blog for almost a month aside from to share my stuff for my daily checklist – the longest period of time spent away from it since starting Suzie Speaks just over five years ago. It wasn’t necessarily a planned break, I just found that I had nothing to say, the Black Dog stayed around for longer than usual and it did me good to get away from everything involved with it, instead spending some time on the new(ish) project that I have been working on.  Continue reading
