Promote Yourself: It’s All About You & Your Business

Welcome back distinguished friends and loyal readers! And if perhaps, it’s your first time here, good to have you.  I’m so glad you stopped by.

SO what do you mean by “Promote Yourself?”

Good question.

Well, I wanted to create a place just for you  where you will feel welcome and can share with my readers who you are and why you are online. In other words, I’m giving you your own advertising space to promote yourself! Trust me this is gonna be the turn-around for your business as this will help you and your business get into more limelight!

How do I know Promoting Yourself here will get you into limelight?

I know cause I caught this idea from the likes of Adriene Smith, Angela McCall, Lorraine Reguly and the likes of them and thought of doing so too here as I love to always help people with the slightest opportunity I get. Hope you guys like the idea and thank me for it by dropping your invaluable comments and of course Promote Yourself?

This is box title
Note: You should visit their blogs and introduce yourself to them and their readers. Adrienne’s Promote Yourself Page got (598comments). Angela’s Promote Yourself Page got (64 comments) And Lorraine’s Promote Yourself Page got (227 comments). I will take advantage of those huge numbers if I were you.

Like these folks, I too believe in giving back. I have only spent three years online but in the past one(1yr) I’ve been really active online and meeting a lot of interesting people every time.

Has this helped? Oh yeah it has!

And I not only meet people online, I also make sure I’m learning a great deal first-hand from their experiences; and then the both parties give themselves heads up, which to me is the coolest part of blogging. Adrienne calls this relationships building.

BTW, I think you should download her Report on Relationship Marketing if you truly want to thrive online or be successful as a blogger.

One thing I have noticed about blogging and that I like so much about it is “blog visitors & commenting”. I love the fact that people can hop around my blog and comment on my posts.

That’s how I knew everybody would  like their blogs to have more visitors and more comments. So why not start by introducing yourself to my readers so they can get to know you a little better. In return, they just might drop by your blog and share the love as well.

You know what I feel? I feel it’s a great way to not only introduce/promote yourself and share what you do, but also meet some new people and possibly make some great connections.

So here is what I would love for you to do:

  • Introduce yourself
  • What do you do
  • What are you passionate about
  • Do you need any help or do you offer help
  • Promote yourself

The first thing you should know is that I’m hoping to engage people a little further out here in the blogosphere, and create my own little group of awesome bloggers that can interact with one another, who will also become part of the discussions that may happen in future blog posts! Note that you can choose your level of participation, too. Jump in and participate when you feel like it, with no pressure from anyone, and sit back and observe when you want, too!

I know that many of you would like more engagement with others, and this is your opportunity to meet someone new, who just might have more knowledge and experience than you, or who might happen to be a really interesting person who you’d like to connect with. I know that I am looking forward to meeting some new and awesome people!

The second thing that you should know is that, in exchange for this free promotion and introduction service to each other, I am requesting that you subscribe to my blog posts via e-mail, which means I’d like for you to click on the “SUBSCRIBE” button (located in the right-hand side of the page underneath my social media site buttons) so that you get a short, friendly reminder in your email inbox each time a new post is published on this site! I generally only post thrice a week, which are (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) And yeah! Being an interviewer, I interview a lot of experts and published their interviews in the “Expert Interview Series” on the blog, which I think you should not miss for anything in the world!

This is box title
Note: I’m not making this a requirement, but I would like for you to join my community! We’re a good bunch! If you just want to promote yourself, and then never read anything I write in the future, that’s totally up to you. Of course, I may cry about it. :)

I’d also like you to share this with others on your other social networks. I’d really appreciate it if you could help me spread the word, so that I can get to know your “friends”, too!

I know that most of you have been blogging for a while and are used to the demands that blogging can sometimes place on you. I have been blogging for about seven months now, and I have two blogs: this one and Pro Motivator, which I created to showcase some of my skills in motivating people.

The cool thing about WordPress is that I get notified each time someone subscribes to my blog, and so I know if you’ve subscribed. I usually respond to every comment on my blog, too, because I love interacting with those who took the time to say a few words to me. Engagement is key, in my opinion.

If you are already one of my regular readers, please feel free to post your links and Twitter handle here! If you’re not, here’s your chance to get in on the action! (Remember, one or two emails per week isn’t too much to ask in exchange for some “free” promotion, is it?) Of course, this isn’t mandatory… just a request! :)

And gonna I’m looking forward to seeing your posts in the comment section!

:) I can’t wait to introduce all of you awesome people to one another this way! :)

It is important to note that this post will be left up a bit longer than any other post, too, for a couple of reasons:

1. I want you all to meet each other, and me, too, of course!

2. It’ll take me some time to move my other blog, and

3. I want you all to get as much promotion as possible!

This is box title
(Note that this post will appear on the main page of my website, and just because I like it to stay longer and that you get to partake in this free advertisement, I have decided to make it my homepage – meaning once you type in your search box: http://www.bloggingwhiz.com you will be automatically redirected to this page.)

I would love for you to stay awhile and check out some of my posts. Comments are always welcome and I promise to return the favor. It’s definitely a win-win situation for us both. You get more links to your site and it will help improve the search engine rankings for us both!

I’ve got one more favor to ask of you! Once your comment is approved (I’ll do that as soon as possible), come back by and hit the “Tweet” button. People will not only be interested in promoting themselves, but they will be able to read all about you as well (free advertising). If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll add me as a friend. My Twitter ID is “samuelkermis”.

Let the meeting and promotion of awesome people take place!

I’ll start.

So my name is Sam Adeyinka, and I’m a writer, a thespian,an interviewer, and a blogger/contributor on so many other blogs, which my three blogs – Blogging Whiz, Pro Motivator, and Techy Tyrants happens to be a part of.

I blog about many different things, from my personal experiences to my experiences as a writer, to my latest discoveries. I sometimes interview authors or experts in their field, help others, and am honest and caring.

I am on different social media sites, and love interacting with other great minds. I write motivational literature, and my first book will be live anytime soon.

I am outgoing, friendly and have been through a lot. This post on my other blog might just give you a glimpse: January 1st | A Day Never To Be Forgotten! 

If you’ve been reading my blog, you’d know my blog posts are interesting, informative, and unexpected, since you’ll never know what I’m going to blog about next! I like to keep things interesting! Variety is the spice of life, you know!

One of the quotes I live by is “Dare to be different in a world trying to make you everybody else!” I’ve since realized that men who make the difference are those who dared to be unique and not try to be just like everyone else. And if I have achieved anything in life, it would be solely because I dared to be different and leaned first-hand on the experiences of those that has gone ahead of me.

Over To You Awesome Friends!

Do please spread the love, leave me a comment on my posts and let’s get to know each other. I will be forever grateful!

Thank you so much and see you soon!

P.S. If you don’t tell me more about you and what you’re up to your comment won’t be approved.  I mean that is what this page is all about.  So, look forward to learning all about you.

    Hi Sam,

    Thank you for inviting me here and so now I’m here! :)

    I’m Angela McCall — graphic designer, internet marketer, blogger, and business entrepreneur. Yeah. All in one. Like they said, it’s better to be versatile than concentrating on just one thing alone. As a graphic designer, I never turn down a job. I always find a way to do this. And if I don’t know about a certain area, I’ll be happy to outsource this. The main important thing is, I am taking that time to do for a client what they cannot do for themselves, or giving them the freedom to do what they really want to do in their business in the first place…and that is taking care of business!

    I’m very passionate about singing, creating videos, and blogging. The best reward about blogging and being here on the Internet are the people I meet online, business associates I meet online, and just about meeting the most wonderful people on planet earth. I also love to learn new things. Never outgrow. Coz the moment you say to yourself “I know everything” that’s when you die. So continue to learn…continue to expand your horizon. Sky is the limit.

    Have a wonderful weekend, Sam. May God bless you and your business…

    Always,
    Angela

    I own one of the trending blogs called Techracle (www.techracle.com) and I’m also Part of this blog, BloggingWhiz. Techracle was created just because of my passion for technology that was why i used the little aspect of my name to form the word, Tech-racle.

    Let me wrap it up by saying “Life is too short to be scared of Failing. How will you succeed or fail if you do not try or take risk. Take Risk and You will either Learn from your Failure and return to success or You Succeed and gain more Knowledge of Success”.

    Love You All

    Hi Sam,

    Great post, it’s awesome to connect with you, Angela McCall, and many others through your site!!!

    I have been in web design, development, and online marketing for over nine years. My passion is not really in those areas, they are vehicles that I use to change the lives of business owners and their businesses.

    Many businesses have no idea why they are business, what problems they solve, who they solve them for and how to use their products and services to be a part of the solution.

    With time and experience, I coach them through understanding their business and how to organize it so that they can manage their marketing, sales, production, customer service and administration.

    If any of these things are missing, their business is in trouble…

    That’s the short picture. I love helping businesses grow and thrive!

    Thanks again for the opportunity Sam! I look forward to connecting with everyone here!

    Hello Everybody !!
    Ok now, first of all I want to say a big thank you to Big Sam for this perfect get together, It is a nice hook up..

    I go by the name DOK Simon, am currently an editor and writer at Blogging Engage, a site I would like to term as a multi purpose niche. I have been in the blogging community for almost a year now and few moths of activeness and I suppose it continues that way.

    Apart from blogging am also an Engineering student, a web , logo and banner designer, I love what I do because of the impact I wish to make and the difference I would like to effect in my community and beyond. I take a lot of interest in helping and being help. I can’t claim of all perfect so I subject myself for any further education from anyone. Life is all about humility and patience..

    Am also a Gospel Singer and rapper, I write a lot of lyrics for myself and other upcoming artiste. I just desire that one day I would be heard by all of you and hope it makes an impact… … Thank you..

    My regards,
    DOK Simon..

    Hey Sam,

    I’m so sorry I’m late getting by here but I had one of the busiest weeks last week I’ve had in a very long time. I am so behind on so many things and one of them is getting by here.

    I’m glad you liked this idea and I actually got it myself from Ana Hoffman back in 2011. Most people will tell you that Twitter direct messages are dead and everyone hates them but it was a way of connecting with people and getting them to your blog with no strings attached. Actually, this is where I sent them so they could promote themselves. Now who doesn’t want to take that opportunity right! It still works beautifully today and I now have 604 comments on that post so I would definitely say it works.

    So moving on to what you asked of us. Well you already know me but my name is Adrienne Smith and I’ve been blogging for six years but recently celebrated five on my main domain on June 19th. I blog about blogging in general, how to get traffic to your blog and how to build relationships with your readers and subscribers. I also have a consulting business and will be releasing my product hopefully in early October about building blog communities.

    I sort of fell into this because I realized that I never had anyone that was there for me so I wanted to be someone others could count on when that had questions. No strings attached but if you needed further assistance in an area then that’s where my consulting comes into place. I’ve built a pretty good business around that model alone.

    Thank you for the opportunity and I’m sure that in no time at all this post will have hundreds of comments as well. It will be a great place for others to connect with each other.

    Have a great week Sam and thanks again.

    ~Adrienne

    Great idea!

    I like how you stated that meeting personally it is a great experience, I agree with that.

    Promoting yourself must be relevant and I like about those people who build the trust of other people by using relevant data such social media proof.

    Thanks for this free promote yourself maybe one day I’ll post myself and I keep it in my mind.

    Have a great day always.

    Cheers !

    Keep rockin’,
