Blog Consulting & Coaching

Boost Your Bottom Line with a Blog

Knowing who to pick for a blog consultant isn’t getting any easier, since everyone’s suddenly a blog expert nowadays. I’ve been blogging since the year 2000 and helping others improve their game since 2007. I’m here to answer your questions and help you figure out your blog marketing plan.

Maybe you’re just starting out with your blog–or you haven’t even started, yet. Or, maybe you’ve been in the game for a little bit and now it’s time to get serious about blog SEO or you want to know how to increase blog traffic. You could spend huge amounts of time floundering around the web looking for scraps of solutions.

Or you could…

  • Talk to a human being–a blog consultant–on the phone and get answers, guidance, strategies, and tactics, which means you can truly succeed with your blog.
  • Have an expert blog coach who helps you overcome the steep learning curve, which means you can succeed at least twice as fast than if you were on your own.
  • Get live help over the phone as you and a blog coach look at your blog together, which means you’re getting specific answers and suggestions about your blogging no article or ebook could ever give you.

Sounds pretty good. Who could possibly offer such a fine service?

Why, that would be me.

Live, In-Person Over-the-Phone Blog Help Consultations

The best help I can offer you, which has the biggest impact and makes a real difference in your life, is to help you with blogging strategies and tactics by talking with you, answering your questions, and giving you actionable, specific help with your blogging–and how you can reach your personal blogging goals. Blog coaching, in other words.

Experience Breakthrough Moments

There are these moments when clients and I speak together on the phone when they finally understand something vital about blogging that had been eluding them. There’s just something about working live with another person as you both look at your blog on the screen together and talk strategy—it creates breakthroughs.

You can ask me any question, you can be at any stage in your blogging, from beginner to advanced. We can talk about anything from what to blog about to how to increase subscribers and anything in between. Strategy stuff, technical stuff, it’s all good. Think of what your most burning question is about blogging: ask me that.

Our Session is Recorded so You Don’t Have to Worry

These consulting calls are recorded. You don’t have to worry about remembering everything or taking notes. You can download the call and listen to it as often as you like. In fact, I suggest you not take notes during the call so you can concentrate without distraction. Then, listen to the call recording several times and take notes when you do. You will have much better notes and you’ll be able to confidently execute your plan from them.

What We Can Talk About

What kinds of topics do we talk about? That’s partly up to you, but you can be sure I’ll ask you some questions and offer suggestions based on what I see on your blog and what you’re trying to accomplish. Some possible ideas include:

  • Planning how to grow your blog traffic
  • How to make money
  • How to get customers or clients from your blog
  • How to rank higher in search
  • Information product or ebook planning
  • Choosing your blog topic
  • Getting traffic through social media
  • Sending traffic to an ecommerce site
  • Figuring out your offer and your products/services
  • Working with video or audio content on your blog

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

"When I switched my blog over from Wordpress.com to an independent hosting service, I lost 100% of my hard-earned organic search traffic. I had been told by experts (at my day job) that re-directing was impossible.

I believed them until I found Michael. He gave me the key to the Wordpress re-direct gate and in less than an hour all of my old search engine traffic was pointing directly to my new blog. He was such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him."

~ Alaina (MsSingleMama.com)


"If you wish your blog was better, you need to talk to Michael. I thought I was experienced enough that if there was an answer, I knew it. After talking to Michael I realized that there were some simple, important things I'd missed. After only a few consulting sessions I noticed these changes made a real, positive impact on how I attract clients."

~ Jennifer Gniadecki (jennydecki.com)


"Michael Martine puts the 'remarkable' into blogging in so many ways. As a PR person who is new to the blogosphere with a personal venture, I knew a ton about marketing, writing, editing, business & research, but was really restrained by technical hurdles.

So many of the new Internet gifts are 'free' to use, but have zero technical support, and for a low-tech person, it's extremely time-consuming and frustrating to search FAQ's & forums without ever getting to the right answer. Michael was an amazing, 'remarkable (!)' short-cut, not only making new tools & resources available, but explaining in a very simple way, how I could start to drive these things as well.

He has a keen business sense, and has combined valuable consulting, excellent communication skills, and a very approachable personality, to create a fantastic go-to option for anyone looking to create or extend their web business."

~ Amy Smith (businessofmotherhood.com, momtinilounge.com, writeideas.com)


"The blog posts bring more traffic as time goes on with longer tail KWs but all considered - before 55K uniques a month and now 70K Â but what is more important to me is the number of people asking questions and visiting the forum - this has more than doubled."

~ Prav Solanki (cosmeticdentistryguide.co.uk)


"Michael Martine is one of the best in the blogosphere. His insights are impactful and on the mark. He's one of those rare people who understand the technical AND social side of the blogosphere. He's creative, and finds unique solutions to difficult problems. When he worked with me, he showed me some answers to questions I didn't know I had."
