Start Your Own Blog Strategy

How do you start your own blog?

One of the very first questions I ask anybody our team trains is, “What do you want?”

If you say you want to start your own blog, then I will ask,”Why?”

If you answer it is because you want to make a lot of money, I will advise you that you need to re evaluate your why.

Making money is a by product of serving people value by way of your content.

To start your own blog all you need to do is grab a free wordpress blog and select a theme that is mobile responsive.

You need a mobile responsive theme because over 55% of online searches today are with a smartphone and that is increasing rapidly every year.

The two main reasons are Google will now punish you if your theme is not mobile responsive and no one using a smartphone will be able to read your blog posts.

You will need a few basic plugins and you are ready to get started spreading your word to the world.

What is the purpose of your blog?

What I mean by what is the purpose of your blog is what do you want to accomplish?

Do you want to educate people, inform people, share ideas with people or do you have a specific strategy in mind?

Maybe you just want to do it for fun.

It is important that you have this clear in your mind before you start your own blog because when you shift in the middle you will have lots of information published on your blog that will be non relevant.

This will work against you with Google.

You always want to know where you are going and craft out a blueprint that will get you there.

You can always shift your blueprint around if you are off course.

Choosing the all important target market

Choosing a target market is what gets most people in trouble when it comes time to start blogging.

Your target market has to be very specific.

You can’t just pick something like landscaping.

There are quite a number of areas of speciality in landscaping.

If your target market is too broad then people will drop by your blog and leave.

You only have 6-10 seconds maximum to capture someone’s attention.

You should pick a target market that you are passionate about because you are going to be writing about this every day or at least 3-4 times per week.

Travel blogs and DIY (do it yourself) blogs are very popular.

If you are just shooting stuff out there to get a wide variety of traffic then you can go with trending news which is anything and everything that is hot today.

This takes a particular skill and you need to be on top of the trends as the news fades fast as you know.

In every business there is always a system to follow that will allow you to be successful.

There is always new stuff to learn when you are dealing with the internet.

Follow these tips on blogging and you will be on your way to being a successful internet marketer.

1) You have to understand some of the fundamentals of SEO (search engine optimization)

2) You need to learn a few writing skills

3) You need to know about keyword search

4) You need to have a marketing strategy for social media networks

5) You need to be authentic (be yourself, be real)

Doing guest blog post to get better ranking

When you build up your credibility on your blog one of the strategies you can apply is doing guest blog post on other people’s sites.

Make sure you are writing on a blog that is congruent with the theme of yours and you will score a powerful back link that Google will reward you for.

This is a win/win because you are putting more relevant content on their site and you get the exposure of their audience and a back link which will go towards boosting your ranking.

You can approach people in your niche to offer to do a guest blog post and if they see that you are providing good value with your content then it is likely they will agree.

The key is for you to be publishing great content.

Great content keeps them coming back to see more.

More tips on blogging – common mistakes people make

There are fundamental things that every successful person has to do in their chosen field.

There is also a list of common mistakes that people make that cause them to get poor results.

Here are 4 common mistakes that people make.

1) No target market – if you have not defined your target market do not start blogging until you identify one

2) No value – if you produce crap content no one will want to read it (do you like to read crap content?)

Great content on the other hand gives them a reason to come back and if you are really good they will tell their friends.

3) No consistency – For both Google and your audience they want to see fresh content at least several times per week

4) No calls to action – If you only give people information and then stop there you will get no list and no sales.

You need to tell them what you want them to do after they have read your stuff. Your audience is not psychic.

    I use a great blogging system that for $25 a month, it was easy to set up, use within 5 minutes it was ready to use. This includes the hosting fee!

  2. I really like that … Making money is a by product of serving people value by way of your content.

    That is a cool video about the system you use and the blog they use, sounds exciting.

    Can you please confirm if that is true about Google wanting to see fresh content at least several times per week

  3. Great Post! I agree keywords are highly important for a successful blog. Knowledge as well.

  4. Great post David! Giving a clear call to action and consistency are what most people lack. Thanks for sharing.
