You may or may not be aware of the fact that Fulltime Families has their own Pinterest Account.

That’s a place where we pin all sorts of ideas for our life, like the Awesome Organization Thingies for your RV, Celebrating Holidays in your RV, Easy RV Crafts, and Ideas for Entertaining Little Ones on your Drive.  If you haven’t been to our Pinterest Boards, check them out here: http://www.pinterest.com/ftfamilies/

But that’s not what this post is about!

This post is about a brand new feature we just included on every post in our website.  It’s a tiny little red button that says, “Pin It” in the top corner of every post.

Check out how it works (we’ll wait…).  See when you click that little button, it brings up all the pics on that particular blog post and allows you to pin any ones that you want to add to your own Pinterest account.

Happy Pinning!

Kimberly Joins Heath Padgett on the RV Entrepreneur Podcast

I love how this podcast came out! Usually you listen to podcasts, read books, surf the web, looking for actionable ideas you can implement to further your business.  After you comb through all the mumbo-jumbo, buy the necessary tools, you realize, there were some steps missing and you’re still unsure as to how to start.  I, myself, have been guilty of giving that kind of advice.

But Heath, the host of The RV Entrepreneur Podcast is a seasoned interviewer well beyond his years and he knows how to cull out of his guests the details, the specifics, the tips that make a difference.

If you’re curious about how the business side of Fulltime Families works, then I invite you behind the curtain to witness first hand how a kitchen table became a corporate headquarters and our family was led to an income stream to fuel our dreams.

Looking for more from The RV Entrepreneur?

Consider joining this dynamic group for it’s first RV Entrepreneur Summit!

Heath is hooking up listeners with a discount code for this event! Go to RV Entrepreneur Summit and use the discount code “fulltimers” when you’re checking out for $25 off your ticket price. But hurry this is limited to the first 10 listeners that take advantage of this offer!

Charity on the Road: Fulltime Families Country-wide Compassion Event

Kimberly No Comments

This season is so hard on many families.  With freezing temps and cold weather lay offs, many families struggle to keep food on the table, let alone put a little something under the tree for their kids.

Fulltime Families is several things:

  • A Support Organization for Full-Time RVing Families
  • A Collective of Buying Power to solicit discounts from providers
  • A Community of People who share life together as their paths cross
  • And best of all – a group of amazing individuals, with a spirit of generosity – who seek to provide relief to fellow families who are suffering.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise, that as needs arise, several members have spearheaded initiatives to connect families in need with families looking for opportunities to give of themselves this Christmastime.

Want to Get Involved?

There are several ways you can get involved in this community wide compassion event.

  1. Give directly to a family in need.  We have a campaign in progress to help a fellow traveling family with a critical need.  You can read their story here.
  2. Match your time, talents, extra resources or location with a family who needs a helping hand.  Families have been specifying their needs and locations in a thread on Fulltime Families FB Group.  See how you can respond to a family who may be local to you, or miles across the country by checking out this compassion thread.
  3. Pray, send notes of encouragement, and keep these families in your thoughts.  So many families experiencing hardship, feel alienated and ashamed by their circumstances.  Take a moment to reach out and let them know someone cares about their circumstances.

Thank you for your consideration.  We are immensely grateful for this community and blessed to be a part of it.

Love, The Travs

 

 

Top 5 Money Making Tips for New Bloggers

Kimberly 1 Comments
moneypc
On a recent episode of Roadschool Moms, Mary Beth and I shared our top 5 tips for new bloggers looking to make money with their blog.  While blogging is not a get rich quick kinda’ thing, with consistent effort, it can be lucrative and can serve as an income stream for your full time rv adventures.
Here are the tips we discussed.  If you’d like to hear (and hopefully skip) the mistakes we’ve made along the way, then tune into the  show here: http://ultimateradioshow.com/top-5-money-making-tips-for-new-bloggers/

1) Establish an idea.

We’ve talked about it before and we’ll say it again, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel to have an
edgy, new business plan. A fresh spin on an old idea can be just as profitable as the “next big thing.”

2) Register a url.

When you’ve come up with a viable plan for your new
business/blog, it’s time to nail down a business name. Research by simply going to
Google to be sure the name is available and not already trademarked, overused, or otherwise already taken. It is tempting to use catch words or unique spellings, but save yourself a huge number of headaches down the road and
stick to the correct spelling of the website name in the url.

3)Develop a mailing list.

The blogging world is mammoth and there are numerous ways to share your business venture; however, there is no better connection to your direct customers than a mailing list comprised of valid names (and email
addresses) of those who subscribe to your business. The website home page
should have an opt-in button or link so that potential customers can sign-up for your mailing list. The best way to entice them to do this is with a free product of some kind, usually an e-book or e-list that can be downloaded immediately after
valid information is entered into the mailing list subscription. The mailing list portion of a new business/blog can all be managed with a service such as Mailchimp or aWeber to target customers, send autoresponders, and a host of
other nifty ways to keep in touch with the prospects on your list.

4)Grow social media presence.

Social media can be a business’s best friend:
Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, and others. These avenues will help build
your reputation or brand while showcasing your products to those who might not
see it otherwise. In addition, social media can drive traffic to your website as well
as provide great customer feedback.  Before launching a new website/blog, be
sure your ducks are in a row with established social media accounts and the
proper links.

5)Produce content.

Once your idea is put into motion and is rolling down the road
to financial success, keep the momentum going by producing timely and relevant
content. The key words to producing content are consistent and regular. Now,
this does not mean that a new post must appear on your website every morning
at 9 am. It does mean that new content should post at routine intervals to your
site/social media so your potential customers are regularly reminded of your
fabulous niche in the market. As a sidenote, the best investment a new blogger
can make in this area, is a professional and fool-proof editing method so that
content is grammatically correct and free of spelling errors.
Budding entrepreneurs hungry for a new, profitable blogging business can
feed their success quickly by making these top 5 priorities a must in launching their
next, exciting idea to hit the market. Are you ready?!?
