So you’re in some sort of network marketing company and you’ve heard that you should start a blog to help promote your business…..
But simply starting a blog does not mean that it will be successful.
…..Here are some quick tips to get you on the way to creating a super-successful blog that gets all kinds of targeted traffic.
First off, less is better. Some of the most successful blogs are really simple. Plain themes, soft colors, and easy navigation go a long way with visitors. If you have a lot of flashy banners and advertisements, it will distract from what should be the best part of your blog, your unique content.
Second, be consistent with posting new content. Whether it’s written copy or new videos, fresh content will keep visitors coming back for more and that’s what you ultimately want anyway. Your subscribers will be notified every-time you post that content as well so it’s important to keep yourself popping up in your readers in-boxes. They subscribe to your blog because they want to know when you’ve got new content right?
Lastly and equally if not the most important, is to promote your content. You can not rely on just search alone to drive visitors to your blog, especially if you’re not very familiar with SEO. When promoting your blog, you can use social media sites like Twitter and Facebook to invite new visitors. Ask your friends to leave comments as well which will help you in the search rankings.
A blog is always a work in progress and something that you will be testing and tweaking for the rest of it’s existence. So choose a theme that you like and a sweet URL and start blogging.
You can also promote your content by being active in forums and commenting on other leaders blogs. Just by posting an opinion or comment you could attract some very like-minded people to your blog.
Another great way to promote your blog is to take your unique content and submit it to article and video sites that accept user generated material. You’ll be allowed to promote a couple of links so you could send them right to your blog.
All of these promotion strategies will do one more essential thing for you. They create backlinks. Backlinks are permanent “doorways” in the search engines to your content. The more you have the more successful your blog will be.
Creating a successful blog will not happen overnight. But with daily consistent action you will unleash a flow of traffic that cannot be stopped! And it really is that easy!
