Marketing as an introvert, and how guest blogging can help you get your language business in front of the right audience

In this week’s podcast, Bryn Bonino joins me to discuss the power of meaningful online connections, what guest blogging actually is, and why the right mindset is crucial to marketing success.

In the interview, we talk about Bryn’s story from being a language specialist to running her own marketing and branding consultancy Backstory First.

We discuss what prompted her to start Make A Leap, a website where she interviews language educators who made the leap from language teacher to entrepreneur.

Bryn then goes on to share how she developed and nurtured her online network of connections and how she started to write for other websites.

She explains how guest blogging helps you gain web traffic, get in front of your audience, and boost your SEO ranking in a cost-effective way.

As she puts it:

Guest blogging is great because I don’t have to tell people how good I am and why they should listen to me. It lets other people do that for me, and I just share what they’ve written.

We then go on to talk about the challenges of marketing ourselves as introverts, and why mindset is crucial for language business success.
