Kajabi Sale! Get the "2X Impact" Plan During Semi-Annual Sale

kajabi kajabi sale Mar 18, 2019

I'm in a lot of business- and entrepreneurial-related Facebook groups. If I had a dime for every time someone asked, "What's the best platform for selling courses, products, or memberships?", I'd be a rich, rich woman, yo. My answer is always "KAJABI" .

There are lots of options and I've studied them all. I've used some of them and some I haven't bothered because I could tell they'd be a waste of my valuable time. I was a data and budget analyst for many years so trust me when I tell you: my decision to use Kajabi was well-thought out

It's been a game-changer for my business and I know it can be for yours too: everything you need to run your digital business all in one place, on the same platform, for one price (let allll those other logins and costs go ... site hosting, video hosting, webinar hosting, email service, funnel service, and more). We all want to minimize and simplify, right? That's Kajabi.

And now's the time to take the plunge, especially if money is on your...

Kajabi How To: Add a Pinterest "Pin It" Button to Your Blog Images

kajabi blogging pinterest Feb 28, 2019

As we've talked about before, using Pinterest to build your blog audience - and therefore market your Kajabi products and services - is CRUCIAL, especially for female creatives. 'Cuz guess who hangs out on Pinterest? Yep. YOUR PEOPLE.

So when people visit your Kajabi blog via Google, social media posts, etc., you want to make it super easy for them to Pin your articles. I personally use a Chrome extension that allows me to easily Pin from any website - but I'm an online marketer. I doubt most users of Pinterest do that. 

Ideally, you the blogger enable a "Pin It" button on all your blog images so anyone can Pin away! As with many things on your Kajabi blog, you'll find, well, "there's no plugin for that!" Guess who found another solution? Ya' girl Erika, that's who! 



Here's how to enable a Pinterest "Pin It" button on your Kajabi blog. Iin fact, it'll work on your whole site, yee haw!

1. Go to Pinterest widget builder.

 

 

2. Set up your button the way...

Kajabi VA: Why I Quit Hourly Packages In Favor Of Something Better

kajabi va Feb 15, 2019

Since I started as a virtual assistant many years ago, I've always offered packages of my VA hours ... until recently. Effective 02-15-19, I'm not doing them anymore and this is why.

ErikaFriday.com participates in various affiliate programs. That means if you click on an affiliate link and end up making a purchase from that site, I may receive compensation. I only share products and sites I use, like, and/or believe will be beneficial to you.

 

This doesn't mean I'm not a VA anymore! It just means that I've found a much better way to serve my clients: Kajabi VIP Days. I've had options for Kajabi VIP Half-Day and Full Day in my business for years now and they're so much better for my clients than hourly packages! So I've decided to focus only on VIP days from now on. 

The Ups and Downs of Hourly Packages

How My Kajabi VA Hourly Packages Worked

What I mean by hourly packages is that clients purchase a block of my VA time - say 1, 5, 10, or 20...

Ever since the "GDPR Panic" of May 2018, we've all been getting our sites in compliance, right? One thing you may still need to add to your Kajabi website is a cookie consent banner.

8 Ways Kajabi Massively Improved My Online Business

It was a huge decision. I analyzed, then I lost sleep, then I over-analyzed, asked friends, did more research, and finally I made the decision. In late 2016, I made the switch to running my entire online business with Kajabi. I say without hesitation that it's been the BEST decision I've made for my biz since I started it in 2006. 

There are probably 20 reasons why this is true but I've gathered 8 of the best and made a list for you. Maybe you're considering making the big switch as well and you're just not sure. I hope my list will help with your decision!

A Review of Feminine Stock Photo Memberships & How I Chose One ...


Creative entrepreneurs and coaches can really benefit from buying a feminine stock photo membership. Images for your blog, website, social media, and products are so important to get right and help to establish your branding.

 

 

Why Do I Need a Feminine Stock Photo Membership Anyway?

There are lots and lots of stock photo sites out there, which have a huge variety of images. Some of my favorites are Unsplash, Pixabay, and Pexels. I use those sites to source free images for use in general blogging, social media posts, client's sites, etc.

But for this website, I really want to appeal to my target demographic: creative entrepreneurial women. Therefore, I need 2 things that I can't get on the types of sites mentioned above.

First, I need quick and easy access to feminine, creative, office- and technology-related images; not just flat lays but some with women in them too. Second, I need "brand builder" sets of photos, which have a consistent look...

Kajabi How To: Add Disqus Comments to Your Blog Posts

One of the most valuable pieces of the course and membership platform Kajabi is its blogging feature. If you want to improve the SEO of your Kajabi site (i.e., get it to rank higher in search engines so customers find you), blogging at least weekly and using your key words is crucial. Once you get your Kajabi blog set up, adding the ability to leave comments is also important; it increases a sense of community and is a great way to be responsive and interactive with your readers.

 

On your Kajabi blog, there are 2 main ways to enable Comments, i.e., to give readers the ability to leave comments on your blog posts.

  1. Facebook comments
  2. Disqus comments

As you see at the bottom of this post, for my ErikaFriday.com blog, I've chosen to use Facebook comments. In the "tips" at the end of this article, you'll see some of my objections to Disqus and why I don't usually use it.

However, on another site I just started, I chose to use Disqus comments instead of Facebook...
