3 Key Points from This Episode:

  1. Don’t worry if your tribe is small. Oftentimes, the smaller the tribe, the more engaged they are with you and each other and the more they feel like they can actually connect with you as a person.
  2. When it comes to advertising on your blog, remember to think about the long game: don’t just let anyone pay you for a sponsored link or post just to grab a quick buck. Only advertise with and for companies you truly believe in and feel your audience will benefit from as well. Otherwise your audience will just come to think of you as a spammer and not someone who provides actual value.
  3. The more desparate you come across, the less likely people are to trust you. If they think you’re just doing it for the money, they won’t believe you when you say that you truly believe in their product and the less likely they are to want to work with you.
