Consulting

Personal blog consulting/coaching

While there are a lot of free tutorials out there on how to create niche blogs, how to find a niche that’s right for you, how to buy a domain name and get webhosting, how to install and maintain wordpress — I know you may feel stumped and almost paralyzed by all these information. As they say, only the top 3% take action on what they learn.

Many aspiring bloggers need help in not only in blogging but also marketing, and many aspiring marketers need help blogging. Or maybe you are a small business looking to establish a blog to promote your products and services. I can help.

Although I do try very hard to put out so much information to help people bridge these two worlds — blogging and niche marketing — it’s just a fact that sometimes reading stuff online or watching videos and listening to MP3s is just not enough to keep us getting started or going to our desired path.

My background

More than a blogger, I am foremost a web developer and programmer. I have built websites for clients, contractors and small businesses and these are not just your typical websites. Some did require advanced CSS and PHP programming skills. In the course of my work, I do a lot of one-on-one consulting with clients, and giving advice on web projects is part of my daily work.

I may be able to help you get started, whether it’s an issue with technology you are facing or a bigger problem of not knowing how to get started with niche blogging. Maybe you just need some pointers or you have a question I may be able to answer.

My one-on-one personal consulting and coaching may be right for you. But you really have to be serious to be able to make the most of these consultations, otherwise you will feel everything was in vain.

My rates

I am not really expensive. You’d expect me to charge in the range of $200 an hour but it’s not even half of that. You can have me as blogging coach/troubleshooter/wordpress consultant for just $80 an hour.

It’s how it works. You contact me and send me initial details of the issues/problems/requests you want us to discuss during the consultation. Then I return to you with a quote (based on the number of hours I estimate would be enough to cover the ropics), and my time availability.

I use screensharing software so you can see my desktop as we talk or I can see your computer screen, if the topic could be better discussed using some visuals. Then I can send you a recording of the session for your future reference.

We don’t have to talk the whole time. You can use the rest of your purchased time to ask me to do some technical stuff, like optimizing  your WordPress blog, adding/updating plugins, and maybe even writing a couple of posts here and there.

Talk soon!
