If you don't have much traffic you might think you couldn't attract the attention of brands to work with. All is not lost - here's some advice just for you.
A common question from new bloggers is “How big do I have to be before I can start working with brands?” - but it's not always about the audience size.

Is LinkedIn even worth your time? Isn’t it just for job-seekers?

As we’ll cover below, not only do I think LinkedIn is the best social media platform out there for every blogger, it’s the only one I use.

And it’s the only one you should use, too....
So, if we can’t do everything, we have to recognize that we’re faced with a choice: we can do many things badly, or we can do a few things really well.

When you’re running Facebook Ads, getting the targeting right can make or break your ads. A great ad shown to the wrong audience is the quickest way to throw your advertising dollars down the drain. And Facebook knows that if advertisers aren’t getting great results then they’re going to stop advertising on the platform....
Advertising has been around for well over a century - and these days there are sophisticated ways of collecting your information for relevant advertising.

Basic Information
Editor, Author and Speaker: Founder of ProBlogger and Digital Photography School
Blogging was a medium that Darren Rowse stumbled upon by accident in 2002 as he was researching a new project - little did he know that just 18 months later he'd be one of the world's first professional bloggers and making a living from his blogs.

Out of writing a popular personal blog that covered everything from politics, to religion, to cultural observations Darren launched Digital Photography Blog in 2003. This quickly became a commercial success and the launching pad for many other blogs in the coming years.

These days Darren works mainly on two blogs - and Digital Photography School where he's also published a growing library of eBooks. He has also founded - a private educational community for bloggers.

He is also a co-founder of 'Third Tribe Marketing', 'b5media blog network' and the co-author of ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six Figure Income (Wiley).

Darren also consults world wide with bloggers and companies interested in the medium, speaks on the topic of blogging and new media and is regularly featured in articles and interviews in both online and off-line media.

He also runs blogger training events in Australia.

He lives in Australia with his wife 'V' and 3 sons.

Another great restaurant from the same group as Maha and Press Club. I held my 40th birthday party here in one of the upper room sand am still getting guests tell me it was the best night out that they'd had in years (given... we are all parents of little kids and don't get out much... but it was great). The staff were attentive, the food was plentiful and delicious and the atmosphere was great. There was a hens party in the next room and we didn't hear a thing and all had a great time. We also eat regularly here and Shane and his team do a remarkable job.

It's always great to find a cafe that becomes your regular hang out - Jam for Joe has become that for me. You can find me there most mornings. The Coffee is great, the food is exceptional (the baked eggs is my favorite) and the service goes beyond friendly. It only took the staff 2 visits to know my name and order and when they installed Wi-Fi - they had me!
