Hi OCC News Subscriber,
Some of the most successful people on the planet are bloggers.
I'm talking about entrepreneurs like Gary Vaynerchuk (GaryVaynerchuk.com), pastors like Pete Wilson (withoutwax.tv), CEOs like Michael Hyatt (MichaelHyatt.com), and musicians like Shaun Groves (shaungroves.com).
They lead, inspire, teach, grow, and sell by blogging.
March is Blogging Month at OurChurch.Com. If you blog, we want to help you promote your blog and become a better blogger. If you don't, we want to encourage you to give it a try.
In His Service,
Paul Steinbrueck, CEO
Blogging Month Features
1) Special Deal on Bronze & Ad-Free Option
2) Become a Great Blogger in 31 Days
3) We Want to Promote Your Blog
4) Bookmark, Tweet, Share & Win $25 Chilis Gift Card
1) SPECIAL DEAL ON BRONZE & AD-FREE OPTION
While there are several sites that offer free blogging services, to maximize the benefits of blogging, you want to have your blog hosted at the same domain name as your site. With a Bronze account, you have the option of either using the blog module that's built into our NE1 web builder or you can install Wordpress, the best blogging software in the world.
This month only you can upgrade to a year of our Bronze Hosting Package and the Ad-Free Option together for only $129. That's a $40 savings. Even if you don't blog, it's a great deal that can help you take your site to the next level. Order now!
2) BECOME A GREAT BLOGGER IN 31 DAYS
Hopefully you see the value and potential of blogging. If you're not sure how to do it well, or perhaps you've been blogging for a while and your blog is not getting many visitors, we've got a great opportunity for you. We are leading a group of bloggers through a 31 Days to Build a Better Blog project.
Each weekday for 31 days we will be reading a lesson and doing an assignment designed to take our blogs a step forward. By doing this as a group, participants have the added advantage of accountability, discussion, and getting feedback on their blogs. 63 bloggers have already signed up. We started Monday, but you can still sign-up and catch up if you get started today. For more info and sign-up instructions go to:
3) WE WANT TO PROMOTE YOUR BLOG
If you have a blog or start a blog this month, we want to help you by promoting it. Post info about your site and blog in the forum topic we created for this purpose, and we'll help to spread the word about your blog in a variety of ways throughout the month. We haven't figured out all the details, but we're talking about including links on our blog and in the webmaster newsletter. If you've got other creative ways we can help promote your blog, post that in the forum as well.
4) BOOKMARK, TWEET, SHARE, AND WIN $25 CHILIS GIFT CARD
We’re going to reward one person who bookmarks or tweets any Christian Web Trends blog post this week with a $25 Chilis gift card. Every time this week you bookmark or vote for a Christian Web Trends post on a social bookmarking site like Digg, Delicious, Mixx, Stumble Upon, or Yahoo Buzz, and every time you tweet or share a post on Facebook you increase your chances of winning.
