How Embracing Mess Makes You a More Successful Entrepreneur | MiloTree.com

Face it. Mess is inevitable in life, business, and family. And messes happens a lot more than we’d like.

But if we can learn to embracing them, instead of being disappointed or discouraged by them, real magic can happen. This is when you can take stock, get real, and push beyond your limits.

Most creative work starts off as something you’d be embarrassed by.

But it’s amazing the beautiful things you can be created out of messes. You have to have a vision, a willingness to work hard, and the drive to stick in there and keep faith.

I also share my story and how micro-adjustments in my life, set me on the path to success: from Stanford MBA to Hollywood screenwriter to entrepreneur with two successful businesses.

Have a listen and let me know what you think…

The Food Blogger Pro Podcast isn’t just for food bloggers. It’s a podcast for all types of bloggers and entrepreneurs. The episodes cover all aspects of growing a successful business. I’ve learned so much from Bjork!

By Jillian Leslie | Milotree

 

How Seasonality Can Help Your Pinterest Strategy | MiloTree.com

Check out the podcast I did with Kate Ahl from the Simple Pin Podcast talking about how thinking about seasonality can grow your Pinterest followers.

Seasonality is all about tapping into where people are in their lives during different times of the year and serving them content that speaks to them right there.

In the podcast, I talk about how we, at Catch My Party( with over 700k followers), think about seasonality to grow our page.

  • Pinning popular pins out of season
  • How to create seasonal content even if your content doesn’t lend itself to seasonality
  • How to think about your audience and what their challenges are at the moment (Is it back to school season? Christmas? Summer?)
  • Using your previous content to inspire new content

Thank you, Kate, for having me on your podcast!

Why Growing Your Email List Is Important to Your Business

By Jillian Leslie | Milotree

Why Building Your List Is Important for your Business | MiloTree.com

You’ve heard people talk about growing their email lists, but is it really that important?

I have to say YES and I’ll explain why below…

But first, if you haven’t signed up for your free MiloTree pop-up to grow your email list (plus Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook followers), definitely do it now. You’ll love how effective it is!

GET YOUR FREE POP-UP HERE!

And here are my reasons why I believe growing your email list is important to your business…

Aside from your website, your email list is one of the only other assets you own on the web.

Social media is of course important because it connects you to your audience, allows you to share important updates, and drives traffic back to your site.

But you cannot control it. Why?

Simply put, you don’t own any of your social media accounts. Have you ever posted something you were excited to share on your Facebook page only to see just a few likes or comments?

Fortunately, you have control over your email newsletter. Your email list is full of dedicated followers who regularly open your emails and read your important updates. People are less likely to skip over an email they subscribe to than a post on social media.

Your subscribers can easily become your customers

If you sell products or services you should start building an email list immediately because these are your best potential customers!

People are less selective about who they follow on social media than whose email lists they subscribe to. Because a person’s inbox is like being invited into their living room, it’s much more personal.

So when someone subscribes to your list, he or she is actually showing an interest in your business. And those who are interested in your business are more likely to buy your products and services.

It’s the best way to stay in touch with your community

An email list is the simplest way to share important messages and stay in touch. Chances are people probably check their email at least once a day. So, if you have something relevant to share, and you want to make sure you reach your audience in a timely fashion, your email list is the best way to do that.

So everyone should be growing their list, right?

Not exactly.

If you aren’t selling a product or service there isn’t as strong a case to be made for building your list. The advertising revenue you’d get from traffic to your site from links in your newsletter will never cover the cost of sending emails through a paid email provider (think Mailchimp).

But I would then challenge you to think of a product or service you could build and sell that relates to your brand, so that it becomes necessary for you to grow your list! Another income stream wouldn’t be so bad. 🙂

You can now grow your email list effortlessly from your MiloTree pop-up!

Just hook up your Mad Mimi, Mail Chimp, ConvertKit, or GoDaddy Email Marketing account to your pop-up and grow your email list, plus any social media accounts you want (Instagram, Pinterest, or Facebook).

The Best WordPress Pop-Up to Grow Your Email List

By Jillian Leslie | Milotree

The Best WordPress Pop-Up to Grow Your Email List | MiloTree.com

Your business is not one-sided. It’s not just about growing your email list OR your social media followers. It’s both. And that’s why MiloTree is the best WordPress pop-up to grow your email list, because you can also grow your Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest followers with it, too.

  • The MiloTree pop-up is lightening fast! It loads asynchronously, so it won’t slow your site down.
  • You can customize it however you like. Grow just email, Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest, or grow any combination of the four.
  • It’s Google-friendly on mobile. We show a smaller, Google-optimized version of the pop-up on mobile, so you never have to worry about showing pop-ups on mobile again.

By Jillian Leslie | Milotree

 MiloTree is the Smart Google-Friendly Pop-Up on Mobile | MiloTree.com

Did you know that the smart MiloTree pop-up is Google-friendly on mobile? What does this mean?

Google announced in August 2016 that they were going to penalize mobile sites that used intrusive pop-ups or interstitials.

So we optimized MiloTree to be Google-compliant on mobile, and fit within the Google pop-up size requirements.

Since we can tell whether someone visits your site on mobile or desktop, we show the appropriately-sized pop-up to them without you having to do anything!

Now you can feel good about showing your MiloTree pop-up not just on desktop, but on mobile as well! 

And since most of your traffic is probably coming from mobile, you don’t have to miss out on growing your business with those visitors.

Google and Mobile Pop-Ups: What You Need to Know

By Jillian Leslie | Milotree , Mobile

What’s going on with Google and mobile pop-ups?

Google and Mobile Pop-Ups: What You Need to Know! | MiloTree.com

Google came out with news in late August, that starting in January of 2017, it would begin punishing mobile sites that use big, obtrusive pop-ups and interstitials.

Why is Google doing this? Because big, obtrusive pop-ups and interstitials on mobile annoy users. And Google wants to make sure that the search results it shows makes users happy.

So let’s cut to the chase. What does this mean for your MiloTree pop-up on mobile?

According to Google, smaller banners that use a “reasonable amount of screen space” are okay!

t2i3

This image above comes from the Google announcement, and is an example of a banner that uses a “reasonable amount of screen space.”

So we’re in the process of redesigning our mobile pop-up to make sure it is Google-friendly. And we will be rolling it out in the next couple of weeks, way before the January 2016 deadline.

We’re in the same boat as you because we use our MiloTree pop-up to grow our social following on Catch My Party. So you better believe we take this stuff seriously.

We will send out an email and post on our blog as soon as our new mobile pop-up is live. So far, I’m loving the new design! Can’t wait to share it.

You can read Google’s announcement here.
