  • Food blogging can help lead to so many other avenues for your business to grow into.

  • The key is to find out where there’s a need that isn’t being met because you can fill that demand. 

  • Find something that will make you stand out but that you are passionate about at the same time. The less competition you have, the easier it will be to stand out. 

  • You and your “why” are unique. Find non-invasive ways of weaving that through posts. Stand out with what you’re sharing.

  • You have to show up, be accessible and consistent. You have to engage and be relatable otherwise your audience will move on.

  • Know what you do and show them what you do. You have to do this in 500 different ways. Tell it to the people in the back.

  • Don’t expand into something you don’t do. Stay on brand. 

  • You are where you are because of the people that support you. Have a gratitude mindset.

  • Beyond food blogging – there are ways you can get involved in your community and create partnerships and establish your own brand.

  • Even being online, it’s important to build relationships. Connect with restaurants, distributors, like minded people.
  • Engage online with others that you want to potentially meet, network, partner with. Connect with markets that are similar to yours and connect through social media platforms.

  • Don’t look for people to hire you, look for partnerships to nurture.
