The Goal Digger Podcast

Hey Goal Diggers! “Ask Jenna Anything” Episodes are BACK, and better than ever. I fielded your questions from both the Goal Digger Insiders FB group and the Goal Digger instagram (if you’re not hanging out there, you’re totally missing out!) I was absolutely floored by the amount of responses I got from you guys, and decided to approach this round of “Ask Jenna Anything” with a twist-- instead of the usual smorgasbord of questions, I have grouped them by category! I am still letting you call the shots and am fully covering ALL the nitty gritty details, but in a more focused, topic-specific way! I am super excited about this shift and can’t wait to hear what you think! You all know I am a branding freak, which is why I’m so stinking excited about this episode! I truly believe branding yourself and your business well is the single most impactful thing you can do for growth, but I know it can be confusing and frustrating at times. Which is exactly why I am so excited to dig through your “Ask Jenna Anything” branding-related questions and go through a crash course in Jenna Kutcher branding 101! Let’s do it! TO HEAR MY ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS BELOW, TUNE IN! Margaret S: How to market yourself without feeling like you’re being pushy/bragging/ too aggressive? Rachel W: How do you create so many unique domains for your different downloads and other offerings? Sydney jade creative (Instagram): would love to know how to share my story/ create engaging content that attracts my tribe. How can I write killer copy like you do to share your story, Jenna?! Lazel farm (Instagram): Would love to learn more about storytelling for your website, connecting with clients, and being your true self. I can’t seem to make the connection to being more authentic online. How do you make the jump from being stiff to more authentic online Alexis R: How do you feel about stock photos for blog posts? Are they valuable or cheesy? Mary B: My question: I have a blog, coaching program, an small online Shopify store...and am researching starting a podcast. They are all "mine" under my husband and my name. Question, all three are not branded the same....is it too confusing and not "niche" enough? Emily D: you talk about marketing to your ideal client. But what about when your business is new needs to grow/build clientele? Should we start with marketing broadly and then narrow down marketing when the business is more established? Melissa M: I would love to learn more about branding and search engine optimization! It’s like a foreign language... what’s the most important steps? Is there someone you know who rocks with this? Would love to hear more on this! Serena P: I'm just unsure of how to start and how to find my voice. I don't really know what my "jenna 5" would be, how do I find that? Carolyn M: I am currently running two separate social media accounts. One for business, one personal. I don’t think I want to merge the accounts, but I’m struggling with how much personal to share on my business account to make me personable yet protect privacy. How do you decide how much of “you” to share while still maintaining a healthy level of privacy?
