Last week we launched the Kara Layne & Co. 2020 Blog Planner. And just as the previous four years before, I am reminded again just how valuable this tool is. I am reminded every time I use it why I first created it. Because it is so much more than a planner. It is a guide book, it is an educational resource, it is the ultimate playbook when it comes to blogging, planning content, and doing it all effectively and strategically. It is the tool every blogger needs in 2020.
You may be familiar with the 2019 Blog Planner and I have heard from so many of you who found it to be such a helpful tool in your business this past year. So, what’s new for the 2020 version of the Kara Layne & Co. Blog Planner and why is it the tool every blogger needs in 2020? The biggest news is that WE HAVE GONE DIGITAL!
This was a huge upgrade and one that I know so many of you welcomed with open arms. I understand that not everyone is a paper and pen type of creative. Or some prefer the convenience of digital instead of having a binder that takes up space. The digital version of the 2020 Blog Planner is exactly as the printable version. It includes the same layouts, the guides and is beautifully packaged to work with the GoodNotes app and on any iPad that supports the iPad pencil. I myself will be using the digital version for 2020 and can’t wait to share peeks into what that looks like as we all prepare for the upcoming year and the goals we have for our businesses.
For 2020, we also upgraded the monthly editorial layout. Not only do you know exactly what you should be pinning to drive traffic using Pinterest, but now you know exactly what to promote and when! Pinterest is an extremely powerful and effective tool when used the right way to build your traffic and audience. This is something we will be diving into heavily inside the Blog Project for this next year. Oh yeah! Did you hear about Blog Project? Pssst… Click here to get a look into an all-new educational experience for bloggers. We are getting our hands dirty beginning December so hurry and grab your spot before the doors close!
The 2020 Blog Planner lays everything out for you from space to gather ideas for future posts, a daily outlook to organize your post and decide on strategic keywords and how to properly promote it, as well as tracking of collaborations and paid ads, analytics, and so much more! There are so many working pieces to blogging and how to actually use it to drive traffic and revenue for your business. It’s so much more than taking your time to create a blog post, publishing it, and then walk away. This is my main focus when creating the blog planner and upgrading it each and every year. To create a tool that will help you do all the things in a strategic and extremely organized way. To guide you through the steps.
My other top priority when it comes to the Blog Planner? Along with it making it educational, functional, and valuable I also strive to make it as beautiful as possible. So that every time you open it you feel inspired and invigorated to do amazing work. New for 2020, we added inspirational quotes that you can add throughout the planner or in lieu of the title pages that are also included. And custom tabs that you can create yourself? You betcha. We’re not just doing the dang thing, we are making it look good! Wink!
A unique part to the Kara Layne & Co. Blog Planner that you won’t find anywhere else are the exclusive educational guides that come with it. ‘Seven Steps to a Killer Content Calendar’ walks you through the process of setting up your year in a strategic way. When you can see what is ahead of you than you can be better prepared in everything you do when it comes to your blogging. You will also receive ‘The Content Strategist’ – a complete guide to what people are pinning and when throughout the year and seasonally so you can plan your content strategically. Follow this guide and approach to blogging and you will see your numbers increase like never before!
One look at the Kara Layne & Co. Blog Planner it’s no surprise that it is the tool every blogger needs in 2020.
