Finding a great name or title for your network marketing blog can sometimes be a daunting task. You want it to be perfect, but fear and doubt seem to creep up at exactly the wrong time. Just when you think you have the most awesome thing picked out, something inside of you says “that’s stupid” and you never pull the trigger.
Here are some great resources and reasons to get up and running tonight!
First, include your name in the title. You will want people to be able find your content in the search engines and also, it’s really freaking easy to rank in the search engines for a keyword term like your name.
Second, choose a general term that’s really popular in your niche, or area of expertise. That way people will know exactly what you’re going to be talking about in your posts. You don’t have to stick with the same topics when creating new content, that’s what pages and categories are for. It’s a good idea to have an overall target of discussion for your future visitors.
For example, let’s say you’re interested in brewing beer and your free time consists of visiting the many microbreweries in Colorado. Your title would be “Matt Findley’s Colorado Beer Tour” or “John Smith’s Guide to Colorado Microbreweries.”
Or maybe you’ve decided to hike in a different state park every weekend this summer and you plan to review each experience with a blog post. Your title could be something like “Arizona State Hiking With Matt Findley” or “Max Power’s Summer 2011 Arizona Hiking Review”.
Perhaps you’re really into copywriting and you want to use your blog to teach others the basics and direct them to tools you’ve found helpful in your own learning process. Your blog could be titled, “Pete Jones’ Copywriting Cliff Notes” or ‘Pete Jones – The Copywriting Coach”.
If I’m sure you get the picture. Keep it simple and sweet. Also, make sure you’re conveying a little of what people can expect to receive from reading your blog on a regular basis.
Third, just pick something and stick with it. So many people get hung up on titles and content, then never put any of their great ideas and knowledge out there for consumption. Nobody will read a blog that doesn’t exist yet. One more thing to keep in mind is that you can always change it later if you don’t like it anymore or if it’s just not working for you.
For suggestions on keywords you’ll want to target, use Google’s free keyword tool. It’s really easy to use and well, it’s free. There you can narrow down your search and be able to look at a lot of different keywords in your niche at one time. There are some other free keyword tools out there, but honestly they all probably get most of their results from Google anyways so stick with the king. It will save you some time and hassle in the long run. After all, you want to get your site up running as soon as possible right?
