Couponing Bloggers Best Practices and Case Study

Two weeks ago I offered a Small Business giveaway to develop processes and best practices for promoting small businesses.

Not surprisingly, some of the bloggers who regularly read GrowMap were far more excited about the opportunity to work with me – especially Kelli from 3BoysandaDog – who you may know from her exceptional series of guest posts on How to Score a Mommy Blogger.

I made a command decision to have TWO giveaways so I can document the processes involved in promoting a small business and growing blogs.

Although there is some overlap in strategies, the priorities and processes are different and the case studies and results will be of interest to two different audiences.

Kelli being the generous person she is agreed to identify and collaborate with four other bloggers in the same niche as her new giveaway and deals blog so that we can implement my new five blog collaboration plan.

I’ll be writing about what we’re doing and putting together other five blog groups so you may want to tune in. Even if you don’t want to be in a group you can use what I share to grow your own blog traffic and visibility.

Kelli’s new blog is all about how to save money and especially homemaking deals and homeschooling deals so the blogs she chose to collaborate with are heavily into:

How to use coupons, frugal living and eating well on a budget.
They call themselves Savvy Frugal Bloggers.

Here are the five blogs I am mentoring who have all agreed to work on this awesome Case Study and Best Practices process:

  1. Kelli (@momof3boys3702) New blog for saving money covering
    couponing lingo, printable coupons, and kid friendly recipes
  2. Rene (@BudgetSavingMom) ~ Budget Saving Mom writing about
    couponing for beginners
    , budget recipes, and organic gardening tips
  3. Sherri (@luvbargains) ~ Luv a Bargain sharing

  4. Renae (@Renae_Chiovaro) ~ How to Have it All on

I’m publishing a post tomorrow that lays out what actions we’ve done as a group so far and will publish detailed how-to posts so any bloggers who are interested can benefit from what I’m sharing with them.

I shared this post from @AskKim on Where To Start When There Are So Many Things to Learn, Do, Apply and Study with the group to keep them from feeling overwhelmed. It contains important tips for every blogger or business owner. I recommend saving it and referring to it whenever the stress of knowing there is too much to do hits.
