Blogging for Marketers

This post was most recently updated on March 26th, 2014



Introducing “Blogging Magic”




Are you an affiliate or network marketer?

Marketers and business or opportunity team leaders often need to educate their subscribers and followers how to use blogging in order to market products, opportunities and services.


Are you a marketer or team leader who spends time, effort and resources to help people when it comes to blogging correctly?


Do your downlines, subscribers and followers keep asking the same questions about their blogs?


Do they know how to properly engage in social media?  


Are you spending tons of your time answering the same questions over and over?


I understand how much time and work that involves because I was in exactly that position in my own business!  



Clients, students and team-mates would email or PM me about:


Where, how and even why… do I start blogging?


How do you get so many comments on your blog?


What do I write about?


How do I get prospects and customers by blogging?


How does blogging help me build an email list that I can market to?


How can I promote my network marketing company online?


How did I land in Facebook “jail”?  I was only telling my friends about what I was selling?


Should I use Twitter?


There is too much information out there, I don’t know what theme to use?  I don’t know how to pick a web hosting service?


What is all the talk about being on social media?  How do I do it?


That’s just a small sampling of the questions I get all the time.




I think you have the picture by now, my friends.  



I was spending far too much of my time on the phone, Facebook and emails answering so many questions my clients had.  


Many of the questions were the same, so I started copying and pasting my responses.


The whole process was very cumbersome, though, not to mention a huge time drain in my already over-loaded work days.



So, I came up with a product that actually walks both newbies and established bloggers through the blogging process that I use and teach.


It’s really a great resource to offer just about anybody that is struggling to put their online business or marketing campaign into high gear, so they can focus on all the new subscribers and prospects they’ll start attracting.  


Why did I do this you may ask?


Well, it comes down to my PURPOSE…My “WHY”….



You see, the reason why I got online in the first place was to be a forerunner for many of my clients that were struggling with a job, people that had unique abilities, great ideas, great potential, but didn’t know how or where to start their own business.   I came online to help them get out of that rat race they were in.  I know the feeling because many years ago I was there too.  I remember working the grind.  



Call it dumb luck, or call it a great idea, but I left that world and became an entrepreneur 30 years ago.  I count my blessings because I’ve able to support myself and family as an entrepreneur.  I wake up happy every day because I do what I love to do.  



When talking to my clients, I found that a major issue was that they wanted to be able to quit their jobs and trade them in for a life of freedom.  Over the years, I have helped many to do just that.  



I always tell them to give things a try while keeping their jobs until they make enough to quit.   Many persisted and got off on their own, following their dreams.  Oh what a joy it is to work with someone that lives the life they want!


So, my friends, you have a little background on my “WHY”!   


Needless to say, when I found the world of blogging, I instantly recognized the power it held. 


Blogging was the perfect marketing and branding vehicle for anybody looking to run a home-based business, develop a private clientele, sell products and services or offer business opportunities to others.  In other words, it could put anybody on the right path to being an entrepreneur.


Now, I’ve been around the internet for almost 4 years.  I work from home, side by side with my husband, David.  I can’t ask for anything better than that! We are able to pick up our computers and phones and work anywhere we want at any time.


David does (or coordinates) all the technical work and I like to refer to him as “the brains of the outfit”  he he  I always look up to him because he has an extensive education and is so cool to talk to.  His M.Ed in Communications and years of freelance writing always come in handy when my writing makes me sound like I just came out of Brooklyn…lol.    


I, on the other hand am the social butterfly.  So together, we created this product to help others obtain the same freedom and lifestyle we enjoy.  Now, I’m not saying that blogging is a quick fix or an overnight goldmine… we all know it takes learning and putting things into action to have success.  That’s what my blogging product can help you do!



So, my friends, today I wanted to let you all in on the release of my very first digital information product.


It’s called “Blogging Magic.”


There are two kinds of people reading this post that might be interested in it.



1.  People who want to start blogging, or who want to learn how to really take their blogging to a much higher level than it’s at now.


So drumroll please…. You’ll get all the nitty gritty details about it USING “Blogging Magic” for your own business right on this link:


For Active Bloggers and Newbies



2.  Affiliate marketers, business opportunity team leaders and anyone else who wants to share my “blogging magic” with others.



Yes, this is an affiliate product, so all you affiliate marketers out there can grab it while it’s hot.   When you do, you’ll be staking claim to affiliate status in a fully integrated blogging sales funnel.  “Blogging Magic” is just the front-end product for that funnel.


And, yes, it’s a great team builder for all you business opportunity leaders.


Just think of all the new prospects your “biz op team” can rake in when everybody learns the savvy way to use blogging to pull in folks from the internet.


I’m sure it will relieve all the headaches involved in training your team to effectively use blogging and social media to connect with new prospects, and to cross-recruit like crazy!  


So drumroll again, please…. Here’s the link to become a “Blogging Magic” AFFILIATE:


Become A “Blogging Magic” Affiliate





It’s been quite an adventure putting together my first info product.  I’ll have to tell you more about that later.


There is so many hours of training, it’s crazy, but I wanted to over-deliver because heck..it’s my name on it!


It certainly can benefit just about anyone in the world of blogging.


Let me know what you think about my latest adventure!  Leave a comment below, and of course… don’t forget to share this article (and news) on your favorite social media sites!

    Hi Cole,

    Sorry for the late response, I had my blog updated and things went a little haywire.

    We don’t offer branded versions of Blogging Magic at this point, but would be happy to consider other options.

    Thanks for visiting, and I appreciate your interest in presenting our product to your clients.

    Hi Donna,

    We do promote products at an affiliate level, but I’m looking for an educational product we could bundle with our client services, to put in the hands of new bloggers.

    If we build a blog for a client, we usually purchase either the Genesis or Thesis 2 framework, Soliloquy’s responsive slider, a form building solution, hosting, etc. for each project. Blogging Magic sounds like it may be a good educational solution. Have you considered releasing branded versions for content marketing consultants or web designers?

    Hi Donna,

    I have been less active online lately but glad to hear about your Blogging Magic! How wonderful that you can share your passion and expertise with others!

    I can relate to how confusing and difficult for beginner bloggers. I went such a winding road to have arrived at where I am today. You are helping others to save time, energy and effort!

    Congratulations, Donna!

      Hi Viola,

      Great to see you again. Although it took a lot of time and effort, I’m loving it!

      I know how difficult it was to start blogging and I do see some bloggers still making mistakes. So I put together this product, and it’s not a drop and run one….I have built in a Facebook group, a one to one session with my buyers and affiliates.

      Yes…it does take time, but this is what I really want to do.

      Hi Holly!

      When working with people and the questions become redundant, I first started to have a form to fill out and then an Q and A. But things started growing and I just had to create something for newbies to the business and others that were just doing stuff all wrong.

      Then, a membership site where there can be on going trainings from 101 to marketing funnels, etc.

    Hey Donna,

    Kudos to the new product! 🙂 I’m really happy for you. You definitely know the magic of success, and the title is very apt. Let’s forget about sleepless nights you had for the perfect title though 😀 lol…

    This is an awesome news and I do believe those who have been struggling and desperate to solve their problems will definitely gonna find answers through the wisdom of you both. This is not only for online business owners, but for those who wanna bring their business online first time too. Isn’t it? 🙂

    Drinks on the house, Donna? 😀 BTW pardon me for taking so long to land on your blog though.

    Wish you much success with your brand new product and hope a lot of people gonna write success stories after having your product, Donna 🙂

    You have a successful week there!

      Hi Mayura!

      Thank you so much for your kind words my friend. Yes, there were many late nights building this. Many strategy sessions, a few coaches, and in the middle of it all I moved!

      But we kept on with persistence and patience! It’s our little baby now and there is still work to do ahead. Creating a product is one thing, but having it go to a membership site is another. And that’s what we built into this product.

      We didn’t want people to purchase it with no support system built into it.

      Thanks again and Cheers!

It’s the perfect platform for anyone to have their own site. You control it, you say your peace, and you do whatever you want! It’s the perfect median for those who want to start a business and have an online presence! Congrats on your first product Donna! You are the perfect ambassador for it!

    You know your product reminds me so much about Paid Social Media Jobs, which is I’m a member to. They’re the one who got me blogging. When I join their membership, I’ve learned so much.

    Your product has so *MUCH* to offer. $47 is a steal. I paid $97 and yours is twice as longer and much, much more!!!! I will send NEW bloggers your way *IF* I see them. Anyway, I just tweeted this and now I’m gonna share this on my Facebook. Thanks for sharing us your NEW product.

    Again, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 You and Dave did a lot of work. What a GREAT team!!!! You guys have soooooo much to offer. The blogger will get his/her money really worth for this.

    I’ll see you around and have a fantastic weekend.

      Our coach wanted us to make it a $97 product, but our lead in is $47, for $97 upsale there is so much more …a whole community site with constant learning curves and on and on and on….

      Thanks for the shout out!


      P.S. Oh yea..that radio show! he he before the internet there was two radio shows, two books published and sold via snail mail, plus a shop that still exists. Ah the good old days lol

    • Donna Merrill February 26, 2014 at 1:52 pm #

      Hi Arleen,

      Oh yes, First the production part. We hired a coach to get us going and keep our eye on the ball. He would tell us what we had to do every day. I don’t think we came outside for a long time when doing that. But it was worth it because you need a coach to get you going and someone to make you do it over and over again until it’s done correctly.

      The marketing was another learning curve. Many coaches in that arena. David took over that part with one of the top “gurus” in the marketplace, working one to one with him. Then the many others.

      But, as you know, marketing is a continuous learning curve and we are still doing it!

      Thanks so much for stopping by,

      Our hosting company was a nightmare. But we both know we are blessed to know you.

      Once we seen that a group of techies couldn’t find the answer to our problem, we contacted you, and joined your hosting company.

      I sincerely thank you for always being there for us. It was so comforting to know that you figured things out so quickly and were there for us when putting the parts together.

      I so appreciate you sharing this. You know the journey I’ve been on during our weekly hangouts. So you know that inside scoop lol.

      Yes, we wanted to over deliver and have a place where people can go for ongoing webinars, trainings, etc.

      Thanks again and enjoy your trip!

    Congratulations, Donna! Yes, I’ve gotten those questions too so it’s great to have a resource to point those questioners to. I will definitely be sharing this because I know it will help many people. You have worked very hard on this and your hard work has paid off. I know this will be very successful. Very exciting!

      Hi Carolyn,

      Thanks so much! After answering questions, writing up questioners before meeting with a client, I just had to do this product!

      Yes, it is hard work, but as long as I’m enjoying it, it’s no “work” at all, rather quite fun.

      Thanks so much for sharing,

    Hi Donna,

    Congratulations on completing your first product. I know how difficult it can be and have seen so many people stop at that point and never complete their ideas.

    It’s fantastic that you’ve completed yours and covered such a great topic. As I was reading your post I was think, yep I do that as well (copy and paste previous replies) and wow does it become time consuming to keep covering the same ground.

    I think it’s a brilliant idea and I wish you every success with the launch. I’ve signed up to your affiliate list and look forward to helping get the word out 😉

    All the best Donna,

    • Donna.Merrill February 25, 2014 at 12:10 pm #

      Hi Barry!

      Thanks for signing up for the affiliate link!

      Yes, it became so time consuming for me to answer the same questions over and over again, that I just had to create this product.

      Not only for newbies, but for bloggers in general. Plus there is a membership site where they can join for continuing their education on not only blogging, but social media, and eventually teach them how to sell their products.

      My one to one service right now is an extra bonus for buyers and for me too because the only way I can help the best I can is to answer specific questions people may have.

      Thanks again Barry!

    Awesome Donna! And there is such a huge market for your new product, in fact even in some areas that may surprise you. For the past year I’ve been mentoring new authors and the questions you outline above come up time and again. They are repeatedly told – by their publishers or by “experts” in their writing field that they must have an author website, but beyond that most are absolutely clueless. Seeing these writers struggle was the whole reason I wrote 2 books about marketing and building a platform and ended up mentoring (for free) so again, there’s definitely a need for your expertise! Congratulations on your new product I just know it’s going to be a huge success!

      Hi Marquita,

      Thank you! I see what you mean…from writing your books, you received all these same kind of questions and had to answer them (for free) Now that certainly takes a long time.

      I was saturated with these questions and couldn’t keep up with answering these folks individually. It was overwhelming. That’s what inspired me to create this product.

      For those who are serious and want to take action, also for those who need it as an affiliate product, so these questions will be answered and they can continue to do their own thing 🙂

    Hi Doanna!


    Sorry I wasn’t here before, but last night when I was supposed to do my blog rounds I was stuck with my coaching training 🙂

    So we have a new product coming out the same day! How interesting! I have no doubt it’s going to help many people.

    Do you have your affiliate product on Clickbank? I do have a list that love affiliate products that could help them this way, and I would love to promote it to them. I usually promote them stuff I know, but since you’re a friend and I know that you and David have good ethics, I wouldn’t mind letting them know about it anyway. Let me know.

    Congratulations on your accomplishment!

      Hi Sylviane,

      Well, congratulations is in order for you too with that wonderful ebook I just opted into that you rolled out with. Isn’t it a great relief? I shouted that one out all over the place lol.

      I have my affiliate link on JVZoo not Clickbank. I find that using this platform is much “safer” and I like the way they give me the stats.

      Of course, I would be honored if you sent this to your list!

      I’ll talk to you soon because I would like to promote your ebook girl!

      Talk soon,

      Hi Lisa,

      Thanks so much for your interest. From the affiliate perspective, this product sure comes in handy.

      I know how time consuming it is when someone keeps asking these questions and more… That’s why it is all answered on this product. From Blogging 101…the do’s and dont’s. To Social Media, and gosh..so much more.

      I did build in a membership site to it also. This way, after all the trainings, I can keep folks up to date with the latest trends.

      Plus, I also built in a one to one session so that people that purchase the product can ask questions and I can get a better idea of what they want to accomplish in their business.

      I appreciate your interest and sharing!

    Hi Donna

    Yeah!! Congratulations and well done. I am sure it feels absolutely wonderful for you and David to be there. I know how much you have put into it.

    Oh yes those questions are so common and it is a scary place for most of us when we first came online.

    It is great you and David have complimentary skills and work together so well.

    I wish you every success in the launch and I am sure it will be a great success.

    Well done

      Hi Sue!

      Oh yes, you know the journey we had doing this as we discussed this on our weekly hangouts. And in the middle of it all, we moved and then our dog had to be put down.

      But it’s all part of the journey. Life happens and we rolled with it, still keeping our eye on the ball with this product.

      I am truly blessed to have David as my partner. I could have never done this alone.

      Thanks so much Sue,

    Hi Donna,

    Congratulations and celebrations for your new product 🙂

    I knew you were working on something, and this surely is one topic that everyone’s going to relate to because there are so many people who ask similar questions, either through their emails or then on the social media networks. So they are going to love what you have to share. I’d surely be checking it out and sharing it all over and send some people your way too hopefully.

    It’s good that you and David are in this together, which makes it so much better as you’re both into it – and I love the word – Blogging Magic, apt for this one too.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

      Hi Harleena,

      Blogging Magic! Yes, it took us a while to decide on that one lol.

      Oh those questions! I know you get them too! That’s what made me come up with this particular product.

      It is like a big weight off our back rolling out with the finished product.

      Now for the fun part, doing webeinars, one to one’s and our membership page that people can join to receive ongoing information.

      It’s a product that will be a continuous one but we are ready! Lots of stuff in “the can” that we plan on doing with it. This will enable those who want to continue their learning curve.

      Thanks so much,

    Hey Donna,

    You know I remember asking the majority of these questions when i first started LOL.. I was definitely at a lost and didn’t know which way was up, but I’m glad that I started. It was a journey, and still is, but I’m definitely glad that I got started.

    I definitely have to congratulate you on your product. It is a great idea because there are so many people, that was like myself, that want to start blogging but don’t know the best way to start and get going. Especially those that already started but keep running into pitfalls!

    So I know that your product will have humongous success. This is why we’re entrepreneurs! We are here to solve problems, and you and David are doing just that! Thanks for sharing and once again Congratulations!

    • Donna.Merrill February 25, 2014 at 11:01 am #

      Hi Sherman,

      Thanks so much! Yes, one thing I will never forget is the beginning of my journey. The people that I have been helping along the way were still at that point.

      Doing one person at a time didn’t allow me to have much room in one day to get much accomplished. So that was the spark of the product.

      Even bloggers I see that are not so new. I reach out to them sometimes and talk to them about improving their content.

      Well, you know my Why! That’s why we have built in a membership site for ongoing training!

      Hi Nick,

      Thanks so much for your kind words. I know it is straight from your heart.

      Yes, David and I worked on this but enjoyed every part of the journey. I know I’m blessed to have a great relationship.

      We love to build things together. Hey that is how we met. He was a writer of a book that I was transcribing. When I met him I didn’t like what he did with this book.

      But then, he stood next to me and ….fireworks! I fell in love with him instantly. We talked and talked and still do that all the time.

      I never took my relationship for granted because my previous ones were…not good (I’m being kind here)

      Again, Thank you so much,

    Hi Donna,

    I found you on Adrienne’s blog.First off, I would like to congratulate you on getting out your first product.

    I know what that’s like because I’m working on one of my own. It’s a lot of hard work but, once it’s finished I know I’ll be proud.

    Like you said, my name is going to be on it. I will definitely check it out.

      Hi Geri,

      And welcome to my blog. Production of a product is one thing, but then the marketing learning edge is another. It takes a lot of rolling up our sleeves and taking courses, and keeping up with the latest “trends.”

      Looking back, I hired a coach to help create this product for time management plus an overall look at each step we were doing. It was like Take one…take two…take three….and so forth so each module was the best it could be. Phew…

      The the marketing funnel was a huge learning curve for us.

      I wish you all the best on your product, and let me know when you roll out with it!

    I’m so glad it’s finally here Donna and I know it’s been in the making for awhile now. I know how much work you and David have put into this to help other bloggers and marketers with all the answers to the questions that we all are faced with at some point and time.

    We both know this can be a lonely place without the right connections so I know that so many people are going to be so excited to get their hands on this one.

    I’m so thrilled for you both and know that it will be a huge success. I’ll be more then eager to support you both with this one and can’t wait to check it out myself.

    Best of luck to you both and again, congratulations.

      Hi Adrienne,

      Thanks so much! Yes YOU know how hard we have been working on this. We did over-deliver, but heck, as I mentioned, if my name is on it, I want this to be a product that will over-deliver.

      I remember that “pain” when I first started blogging. Also in many of our conversations we always talk about “If I only knew this or that when I started…” Well, the product covers everything.

      Including social media. And the best thing about it is that if people want to join our membership site, there will be ongoing trainings there too.

      Thanks so much for being there on our weekly hangouts. You always lift my spirits.

      Hi Susan,

      Yes it does take so much time when helping others to succeed. That’s why I just had to develop a product.

      There are more and more “newbies” coming into blogging. I see their blogs and right away, will respond to help them out.

      The many questions I get from people are quite the same over and over again.

      Plus, even people who are blogging for a while are not making headway.

      And of course, I made it an affiliate product for those who want to relieve the “headaches” of teaching people effective blogging.

      Thanks for coming by,
