What should I blog about is a really common question when people first start blogging or when writers block sets in. And to be honest there is no single answer here as every blog is different.
Well, fellow blog gers, I’m here to tell you it can be done. Now, I don’t want to mislead anyone reading this article. I have not even reached the 1,000 visitors per day mark yet, but I began my blog in March of this year. My point here is that it takes time to drive traffic to your blog, patience, and some creative thinking. In fact, since I have been using the 5 strategies below, the traffic to my Projects has exploded by 300%!
There are two points at which you should sell your business/project; selling before you have to and if you get bored. The reason being is because selling a project when you need to, means you’re likely to be desperate and under pressure. This leads to bad decision making and results in you either selling a project/business that you didn’t want to, or receiving less money that originally planned. By selling in advance you free yourself up less problems arise and online blogs you will feel more comfortable.
You will also need to continue to upgrade as your blog grows. This means classes, workshops and conferences. Hey, you have a little blog that wants to be a big blog — perhaps a blog star? Education, travel and networking are necessary. Who said raising a blog baby would be cheap?
People love to speak. Nobody wants to become a silent listener or reader. Develop strategies for holding your audience so that your existing visitors become your permanent visitors. For this purpose, you can develop discussion forums along with comments, where people can interact with each other, have debates and share their ideas. You can also generate a controversial topic during discussion by posting your comment as a visitor. Controversy is always loved for it satisfies human curiosity. It is the most used tool by showbusiness men. However, make sure that controversy is not raising issues against your credibility or comment moderation activity.
You could create as many blog accounts as you want. There is no limit! And since blogs are very easy to use, publishing entries won’t be a proble, even if you’re maintaining a dozen blog sites at a time!
Use your blog to provide good, useful information. Why? Because if the information is good and easy-to-implement, visitors will keep coming back. And the more frequently they come back, the more likely they are to perform your most desired action (MDA), whether it’s to buy something or to pick up the phone to make an appointment.
