Accountability with your content calendar / promotion plan
Depending on how much content you are able to produce in a week or month, you can ask Niabusiness to check up on you to see if there is any new content you want added to your site.
Adding new blog posts and pages to your WordPress site is something you can do yourself but if you are not comfortable doing that yourself, you can send articles (pages/posts) you have written to Niabusiness via email (as Microsoft Word documents) and the new content will be added to your site.
This applies to images you want added to your website as well.
To help with content sharing, Niabusiness will install a plugin to help your readers/customers/clients share content published on your blog/website.
The buttons will help you and your blog visitors share the content you create to different social networking site and messaging apps.
Niabusiness will also install Jetpack to auto-share blog posts to your social networking sites (Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn) whenever new posts are added to your site.
Apart from that, Niabusiness will provide you with different tips to grow your existing site in 2018 and beyond.
This will be done via email, phone calls, live chat and through the various blog posts published to the site – on blogging, content marketing, and online business.
