With the release of the new Kalatu Premium blogging platform, I wanted to do a review of just one of the key features included with the package.
The feature I’m referring to is called 7 Minute Blog Hacks.
Now you might wondering, what the heck are 7 Minute Blog Hacks?
7 Minute Blog Hacks is a series of training videos that are designed to help you take your blogging skillset to the next level in short, easily consumable 7 minute segments.
Each 7 minute video is going to teach you a new blogging skill, and at the same time give you direct, actionable action steps to take right after you learn the new skill to help you improve your blog.
The 7 Minute Blog Hacks will be broken down into four main categories.
7 Minute Blog Hacks
The first category in the 7 Minute Blog Hacks category is going to be blog hacks which is essentially a series of training videos which show you how to make small little hacks to your Blog, or your theme, or your plugins, to accomplish new things that you didn’t even know where possible with your blog.
For example in one of the first videos I watched in this series, I learned how to “hack” the lightbox feature in Kalatu to display any website or a lead capture page or even a video in a lightbox pop-up that can be displayed when people first arrive on your website or after a certain amount of time.
This is just one example but there will be a lot more “hacks” to help you take your blogging to the next level.
7 Minute Traffic Hacks
The next category is called 7 Minute Traffic Hacks which is a series of training videos which teaches you hacks related to generating traffic to your blog.
As an example, one of the first videos I watched in this series teaches you how to perform very basic keyword research to help your blog posts rank better in the search engines.
Once again, all this training is broken down into very short, 7 minute segments which you can take action on immediately.
7 Minute Sales Hacks
The next category is called 7 Minute Sales Hacks which is a series of training videos which teaches you hacks related to generating more sales with your blog.
The first video in this series of hacks is going to teach us How to Get Great Testimonials.
7 Minute Media Hacks
The last category is called 7 Minute Media Hacks which is a series of training videos which teaches you hacks related to creating media content for your blog.
The first video in this series that I watched taught me how to create great looking quote and meme images for free in just a few seconds which I can use for my blog posts or on my social media sites.
How Often Will 7 Minute Blog Hacks Be Released?
Kalatu Premium users will be getting access to one new 7 Minute Blog Hack every single week.
This will allow you to make small but regular improvements to your blog every single week with just 7 minutes of time invested into learning what to do.
I think this is going to be an awesome way to help Kalatu Premium users to improve their blogs without feeling overwhelmed with too much information and too many changes to try to implement at once.
This way you can just set aside 7 to 15 minutes every week to watch the training and implement what was being taught and take your blog to the next level with a stream of constant, never-ending improvement!
My Initial Review of 7 Minute Blog Hacks
My first impressions of 7 Minute Blog Hacks is very favorable even though there are only a few blog hacks in each of the four categories so far.
It’s going to be very exciting to see a new 7 Minute Blog Hack showing up each week, and I think as time goes on the value from this Kalatu Premium feature is just going to continue to increase.
Meaning, with a new “hack” released every single week, in 6 months there will be 26 new 7 Minute Blog Hacks that you will be getting access to as a Kalatu Premium member.
The other benefit of this feature is that the Kalatu community is going to be listening to feedback from it’s premium members to determine which types of hacks to create videos for.
So for example if a lot of people in the community are wondering how to optimize the banners on your blog, or how to get more traffic to your Blog from Twitter, then those types of questions might be answered in upcoming 7 Minute Blog Hacks.
I think this is a great idea, and I can’t wait to see how the Kalatu team executes on it.
