Having an online presence is a vital to the success of any business in 2016. However, many nurse entrepreneurs are overwhelmed by the thought of owning and maintaining a website or blog. Instead of building a brand and presence on their own website, they rely entirely on social media or don’t have an online presence at all.

A blog is one of the easiest ways to build a search engine optimized business presence. Your blog will become an online showplace that will allow you to gain targeted clients as well as maintain control of your personal and business brand online.

You can start a blog for your nurse-owned business in a few minutes and for a few dollars a month.  You can even generate separate and passive forms of online income to diversify your total entrepreneurial efforts. This three hour pre-conference will give you the tools you need to start and grow a blog into a vital component of your business.
