Top Secrets of Big Bloggers Graphic

Of the bloggers that I work for, many have staff. I can hear you already, “Well that’s nice for them, but I can’t afford a staff!”

I get it. I can’t really afford staff either.

But I think we have to look at this from a different perspective. Maybe you can’t hire someone like me, but I’m betting you have people in your life who can help you run your blog, schedule social media or gather links for a round up. Maybe you have a teenager at home who could help with Facebook. Maybe you’re in a group of bloggers who could all use some help?

Is one of you great at social media management?

Is another awesome at using PicMonkey to create graphics for posts?

What about someone who might be a CoSchedule expert?

Could you pool your resources or trade services?

Staff doesn’t have to mean a virtual assistant (or two) – but if you want one… 😉

Seriously though, think outside the box. I’m betting you have resources all around you that could help you grow your blog for little to no money at all.

You don’t need big bucks to have a staff, you just need to know where to look!




  1. I hope some day to be able to hire my own VA (and I know just who I’d trust 🙂 I have had my teens help with some photography and some social media. I’m loving these tips you’re sharing!
