How I Help People as a Blog Coach & Consultant

A blog consultant & blog coach offers feedback, guidance, & direction.

Ultimately, it's your blog & brand. You are free to call all the shots, execute any changes, & implement any strategies. As a professional blogging coach, I give you professional advice & guidance based on over 7 years of agency, corporate, & solo experience. Take a look at my press & media page for all the brands I've worked with. 

My client Nicole says, "[Carmen] gave me guidance and direction that I never expected! I had to be myself - otherwise, she could not help me the way I needed. She was like an anchor while I was floundering around. She kept me grounded and on track."

A blog coach helps you prioritize your business & blog goals.

Whether a client wants real Instagram growth or tips for getting invited to blogger events, I work one on one with people to get them closer to their goals. I am a blog coach & consultant, which means the client is 100% in charge of their destiny. I sit back, look at the data, & allow the client to see their goals clearly. What do they want to achieve? How do they measure success? What needs to get done?

"Carmen helped me prioritize my goals for my blog and my brand as a whole. She provided me with skills to improve my decision making in everything from blog topics, gauging my audience, and making my personality really shine through in my work." says my lifestyle & travel blog client Kait of JustK8Things.

A blog coach helps you find your blog voice & establish your social media presence.

If you're feeling confused about your online presence, don't worry. You might be wondering how to start a blog & especially how to find a blog coach. What do you need to do? How can you stand out? Where do you even begin?!! A professional blogging coach allows you to delve deeper into your own fears & questions to discover who you can best reach & speak to!

"I reached out to Carmen a few months ago. She helped guide me by helping me find my voice and direction. She is an amazing mentor and friend. If you want to start a social media presence she is a good person to have in your corner." says Drea, my blog coaching client for over a year.

A blog business coach challenges you.

It's not easy. This is a blog coach & consultant after all. As a coach, I share information with you & ultimately, YOU put the effort forward to do the work. A social media manager, however, does the work for you. It depends on what you need.

"I wasn't sure if I was going to learn much after the private blog coaching session but the challenge pushed me outside my comfort zone...The push was well worth it and much needed," says my client Stephanie.

With time & effort, a blog coach can get you results that matter (page views, event invites, income, etc!)

"I've already seen massive stat improvements on my blog (I had one post go 'viral' with over 10k+ views in the first 48 hours which is MASSIVE for me). And most of the companies I've reached out to agreed to sponsored posts or collaborations! I just received confirmation that I'll have a press pass to Dogapalooza this year and I'm friggin over the moon! Again, thank you so much for the challenge." says my travel, health, & lifestyle blogging client, Stephanie of Adventures in Aussieland.
