And this pitch email template is the exact pitch letter I’ve been using to get booked as a house sitter around the world. Get you template below.

Resources For Bloggers / YouTubers

WEBSITE SET-UP AND HOSTING

Squarespace and Wix websites are easy to set up, but WordPress websites perform better in Google search. And if you want readers to FIND your blog, WordPress is the best choice. A paid theme isn’t necessary; you can start with a free theme. But if you want something pretty and with drag-and-drop design, I like Divi. 

SiteGround hosting gives you free email accounts linked to your domain name and a free SSL certificate.

EMAIL LIST BUILDING

Anybody who’s doing business needs to have an email list. If you can’t email your people directly, you’re at the mercy of social media channels. If they go down or you get hacked, you’re in trouble. The best way to get people onto your email list is to offer them a freebie in exchange for their email address.

Quizzes are pretty easy to set up and make good freebies. I’ve also used cheatsheets and 5 day challenges as freebies to grow my email list.

YOUTUBE GROWTH TOOLS

You don’t want to have to grow your YouTube channel one subscriber at a time. The fastest path to growth is by being one of the top results when your ideal viewer searches in Google or on YouTube. You rank high in search results through Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

I use TubeBuddy to research keywords so that my videos will perform well in search.

AFFILIATE NETWORKS FOR BLOGGERS / YOUTUBERS

You don’t have to have your own product to sell to make a profit from your blog or vlog. Affiliates are people who earn a commission for referring sales to a product or service they trust.

I’m an Awin affiliate, so I get an affiliate payout when people sign up with Trusted Housesitters.
