One thing I've observed in my 4 years as a Kajabi user is that many Kajabians seem reluctant to blog. Since there's a blog feature baked right in to Kajabi and we all have access to it, I wanted to take some time and explain why all businesses should be blogging and, therefore, why your Kajabi site needs a blog.

One of the most important questions creative solopreneurs should ask ourselves is: Am I legally covered for the business I do online - my website, blog, services, courses, etc.?
Over the years, I've stayed on top of this the best I know how but, dude, it's hard when you're a "company of one", amiright? I really hope but don't know for sure if I've dotted all my I's and crossed all my T's. It's been heavily on my mind that I need to get this dialed in, as I sure don't want to do something wrong and have to pay fines or have it impact my business negatively.

Top-of-the-line speakers dishing out so many "a-ha!" moments! Did you hear about the Kajabi "Impact Summit"? It was an amazing event held in Irvine, CA from April 5-7, 2019. It included the top authors, speakers, and entrepreneurs all on one stage teaching how to grow your online business.
As a Kajabi Ambassador, it was a no-brainer that I'd attend and, boy, am I glad I did. It was an amazing experience I'll never forget!! Now that I'm back, I'm writing all about it - to share the information I gleaned and to encourage you to attend next year!
This is one in a series of posts I wrote about "Kajabi Impact Summit 2019." Please click here to see the other articles.

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...
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.
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...
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.
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. [Update 08-27-20: I'm now giving Disqus comments a try on this site].
However, on another site I...
