Welcome to Asana For Bloggers. My name is Matt Giovanisci and I’m the founder and creator of a few blogs including SwimUniversity.com, MoneyLab.co, BrewCabin.com, and formerly RoastyCoffee.com until I sold it in May of 2018.
This is a Framework for Managing a Blog (or Multiple Blogs) with Asana
- Asana For Bloggers is a framework I developed back in 2015 and have been improving on ever since.
- Includes a complete overview of how to use Asana so you can develop your own systems and frameworks to run your blog.
- Lays out every single blogging business action I manage with Asana including running a tight editorial calendar, blog promotion, content creation, community management, customer service, tracking growth and revenue, and even more specific tasks to grow your blog.
Solo and Team Blog Management
- I originally developed this course when I hired my first writer. We needed a simple system for keeping up with our editorial calendar.
- If you don’t have a team, you can run this framework solo. I do this for MoneyLab.co since I’m the only person who runs that blog.
Start Slow and Ramp-Up
- If you start too fast, you will get overwhelmed and give up on Asana. I see it happen all the time.
- Start with just one or two projects for the first month or so.
- Starting with just one team member will help you become dependant on the software.
How to Rely on Asana for EVERYTHING
- Mantra: If it’s not in Asana, it doesn’t get done.
- The goal is to manage EVERYTHING in Asana, even team communication. But remember to start slowly.
- Use Asana for personal tasks so you become more dependant
- Recurring tasks are a godsend. Use them for paying credit cards, taking out the trash, etc.
- Start with a single team member, even if it’s just a non-paid person. Use Asana to communicate with them via comments.
Paid vs Free
- Everything in this course can be done with both the paid and free versions of Asana.
- I recommend paying for Asana to:
- hold yourself accountable to using the software
- Take advantage of cool features like custom fields and private projects
- Encouragement to scale your business
- Pay for things that provide true value
- Starting with a pre-constructed template with little information on how to use it is overwhelming.
- Trying to shoehorn a process will lead to confusion
- Follow the lessons in this course and build your own templates. This will help you understand how it all works and allow you to explain it better to your team.
- This is a framework, not a series of templates.
- I will show you how to create your own templates and SOPs throughout this course.
Please Leave a Comment
- If you have questions or confused by anything in each lesson, please leave a comment.
- I will answer comments personally and use them to improve both the text and the videos in this course.
