To begin, you have to find your niche and focus on it. Defining your blog’s niche is straightforward. What kind of reader do you wish to entice? And what are they interested in?

You will also be able to track your competition. This will enable you to know where best to comment!

Your blog should contain all the unique contents as you can possibly manage – it should ALWAYS be unique. You will avoid Google’s copy content filter, and better than that, you will have a reputation for not pursuing the herd.

Determine a Strategy

How much curated content do you want on your blog? A good blend could be 70% original content, 30% curated.

Where Will You Get The Content?

Make a checklist of the most important websites and blogs you visit on a regular basis. Read the headlines to find the content you find helpful and think your target audience will appreciate.

Your Tone of Voice

Some people really like to report the facts. Others enjoy stirring up controversy and be as contentious as possible.

Give An Opinion on the Curated Content

Many entrepreneurs who curate content just put up the subject material without saying why it’s important or what the context is. Talk about the issues, why the content shows a development about the specific issue, and so on. Make connections for the reader so they can see the value of the content and the value of the thought and work you are putting into your curation.

What Are Your Target Audience’s Pain Points

What are the most widespread problems that your audience have and what can help them fix those problems? Yes, you want to sell your own products, but don’t avoid referring to your competitors entirely or …

  • Make sure that your blogs are optimized: If your blogs are optimized, they will appear at the top of the page when a person is searching for what you are offering. It will not require a great deal of effort for you to optimize your blogs and it will be well worth any effort that you make. Another important thing that you will definitely want to include is an effective call-to-action (CTA). You will soon notice that the CTA makes a big difference in how people respond to you and interact with you.
  • Make sure that you give your target audience members the opportunity to opt-in: If you put a box in your website’s landing page, you may be surprised at how much you can increase the number of subscribers you get (or increase). If people like what they are reading, it is not a big leap for them to opt-in to receiving other information that you have to offer on a continuing basis. Many people will be willing to give you a way to contact them. If you happen to have multiple landing pages, you should add the box to each one of them.
  • Offer an incentive for new

ATTRACT

Your goal is to use a blog post to attract strangers to your website and transform them into your visitor on getting to your website. Your blog post should contain relevant keywords and information that answers your visitor’s questions, meet their needs and provide insights into helping them achieve their goals.

CONVERT

After attracting your website visitors, you convert these visitors into leads using website email forms and chat messaging channels where your prospects can submit their contacts such as email address or phone number. This provides a communication channel to continuously provide relevant information, build rapport and credibility with your prospects.

CLOSE

This is the stage where you convert the leads into customers by getting them to make a buying decision or to take a profitable action.

This is achieved by using automated email sequences to send your prospects messages in order to build credibility and to identify their problems and goals.

Subsequently, you can send them specific information about the benefit of your products and how it will solve their problems. This is called PRESELLING. Preselling increases conversion rate and the odds of making sales.

NB- Prospects buy only from marketers they trust thus do not sell …

Getting Traffic To Your Funnel

  • One basic strategy is that traffic from organic searches, social media, or a YouTube video, drives traffic to your website blog page which leads the viewer to a product offer or recommendation. Reach visitors from social media and organic traffic and send them to your YouTube video.

Although not a replacement for regular blogging, video blogging has become an extremely popular way of reaching online viewers.

  • Article marketing is a great way to enter a lot of content online for the search engines to rank, and for the viewers that are searching for that same article content.

Building up the site naturally will provide continuous site growth without spending any money.

One great way to leverage your site traffic is through the use of pop-ups. It’s important not to overuse pop-ups as they can take away from a friendly user experience while the viewer is trying to read your post.

Sooner or later almost every successful business owner faces the decision of whether or not to expand the business to meet potential growth opportunities. The primary reason to scale a business is to increase profitability.

Here’s how PPC works:

Blog Commenting

Link Building is part of your on-site SEO and crucial if you’re going to leverage your blog commenting benefits. There are inbound and outbound links but as mentioned earlier, try focussing on the https URLs. Link building can increase your site popularity depending on what kind of links they are. Which is why High Authority links are more preferable. In a nutshell, link building is the art of linking to relevant content to increase popularity and conversion.

Yes you can leverage your blog commenting benefits and attract more web traffic to your Blog. But that will largely depend on what you comment and to whom. Read other comments and note on what is being discussed, but more importantly what is asked. Read the post you’re about to comment on (to the last word) and add value to the content in your comment.

To leverage blog commenting benefits for the traffic, your content must be as compelling as any other. The comment needs to inspire curiosity through addressing a need. And also suggest a solution (Without Any Links) because you’re building a reputation, not a bank account.

You need to be painfully specific with your targeting. Because random comments with promotional …

Avoid making promises

You’re bound by law to talk about what people can generally expect rather than to make outrageous claims. You can’t tell people they’re going to lose 10 pounds overnight by drinking a brand’s tea or look 15 years younger by using a special cream.

It doesn’t work to put a “results not typical” disclaimer in the fine print, either. In most cases the company will be the defendant of a consumer-driven class-action suit, but you could still be singled out by unhappy clients or even named in a lawsuit.

Understand copyright laws

These protect the original creator of a work – from text and images to audio clips. Many bloggers have gotten in big trouble for using content on blogs that they didn’t create and didn’t ask permission to use.

Your best bet when it comes to finding images, audio and video content is to look for sources that provide royalty-free licensed works or works licensed with Creative Commons licenses.

Know the specific laws around your business

For example, if you’re an attorney, it’s essential to know that from a legal standpoint, giving advice online is considered practicing of law.

Only a licensed attorney may give legal …

Ignite the Spark

It can take time to come up with a relevant topic (and “relevance” is key) so do your homework. Research what your audience wants to read about then make it interesting.

It can help to subscribe to similar blogs and create a “sample” file where you search for topic inspirations. That doesn’t mean copying what they write (not cool)… but instead look for the spark that triggers an idea you can work with, especially one that you can create a unique twist to the subject matter or tie it in with something going on within your industry, your community, or perhaps a global trend.

Do Not Sell!

Your blog is a place to give new insights. Share ideas. Inspire others. Educate. It is not a place to sell – that is the purpose of an advertorial.

There is nothing worse than reading a great article that has given you a plethora of new insights, only to discover half way through that the author has duped you and turned the content into a blatant advertisement. You no longer trust anything you just read and will probably never read anything from this author again.

Know Your Audience

When you start a business you need to choose a specific niche market that isn’t too broad or too narrow. You need enough people to sustain your business by buying from you regularly but not market so wide that is overloaded with competitors so that you don’t even have a chance to get noticed.

Ensure That It’s a Paying Market

Do your research to confirm that the customers you are focusing on in that niche buy books, magazines and regular items to help them get the most out of their job or hobby. If they’re a dog owner, for example, they’ll routinely buy food, doggie snacks, leads and so on. If they’re a golf enthusiast, they will buy golf balls, clothing, golf clubs, excursions to various courses, and so on.

Create High-Quality Content Based Around Their Needs

What are the “pain points” or problems people generally have in regards to your niche. If you know your target audience when writing content for your blog you can deal with these issues. By doing this, you’ll be able to grow your audience as they’ll come to feel that you understand and care about them. They’ll then be prepared to …
