Writing a blog for a website is much easier than making it noticed and making it a hit. Until and unless your posting is not ranked, your worth of writing is not prized. Your blog is your trump card to win you business and much much more. For your blogs to be successful make sure that you set your area of interest and then start focusing on it.
Look at the websites for major magazines that appeal to your target customer. Lots of them have blogs (which should be an obvious target for you) BUT many of these sites also list their favorite blogs. For example: Martha Stewart has a “Blogs I Like” section on her site. Shoot, if it’s good enough for Martha, it’s probably good enough for you.
At any rate, I decided to check them out. The fact that a number of blog publishers allow you to build and post your comments for free, certainly didn’t hurt either.
Use links in your My profile. If you use a link in your post, add your primary keyword to the anchor text. You can also turn that the other way around. See if you can find a valuable link for your primary keyword and then link to it. Here’s why.
So I remain with my hand raised on “hating blogs”. And I fully admit I continue to blog. The lesson that I have learned is that no web technology should be ignored when it becomes mainstay. If you are serious about adding credibility to your business then setting up a blog should also be part of the plan.
Before you learn how to make money with a blog you should understand both what a blog is and what it requires. Almost everyone likes to share their own personal point of view. People have a need to share information and personal point of views and blogs started as a way to do that. However as time passed, the use of blogs has expanded beyond that purpose.
This will be now your springboard to invite them in your site. As you do, give them compelling offers to entice them. It could be free ebooks, short reports, or free downloads. More to the enticement that you inflict to them is you are starting to get their trust. With this, you build relationships. This will help you build your list!
