If you are trying to create a profitable business on the Internet, one of the first strategies that you need to implement is creating a blog. This blog will focus upon the business you are in, or the products that you sell, providing good information for your readers. By using search engine optimization, PPC advertising, and a variety of other marketing strategies, you should be able to build up a following that will be waiting for your next blog post, but you have to do this the right way. There is a system that you must use if you want to attract and maintain an audience, as well as strategies that must be implemented at the same time. By using the following tips, you should have no problem at all creating a good living by doing nothing but blog posting on the web.
What Should Your Blog Be About?
The first question that you need to ask yourself is what will the blog actually be about. This can be determined using one of three strategies. First of all, if you personally own a product that you are selling, the blog needs to focus upon topics related around that product. Second, if you are an affiliate for a product, or multiple products that are similar, this will be the focus of your articles. Finally, you must also decide how you are going to interject blog posts that are designed to not only get the click, but also the sale. Once you have determined what the vast majority of your posts are going to be about, you need to move on to the next step.
Creating A Schedule Of Posts
The next step is to spend several hours every day creating content for your blog. You will need to schedule all of this content so that it will automatically post, something that is easy to do if you are using a WordPress platform. If you do not want to write the content on your own, which most people don't, you can outsource this to a writer. You can find many different services on the Internet where you can have content written for you per your exact specifications. Once you have received this from the writer, you will then begin the scheduling process. It's as simple as cutting and pasting the article into a new post, clicking schedule, and choosing the date when it will post in the future.
How To Market Your Products
The key to making money on the Internet is presenting an offer multiple times until the prospective buyer becomes an actual customer. If you are constantly posting information on topics related to what you are selling, every now and then you need to interject a post that either goes to your product sales page, or the affiliate page of the product you are promoting. These links need to be embedded in the content, either as an in-context link within a paragraph, or at the top or bottom of the page. When people see this, you should start to see if you sales, especially if you are directly recommending the product within the context of your blog post.
How To Start Making Money On A Large Scale
The final step to using this blog posting method for generating money on the web is to use two additional strategies. First, you will create an autoresponder, and a pop-up or subscribe page, where visitors can take advantage of something free that you are giving them in exchange for their email. If they are interested enough to come to your blog to read what you have to say, they will likely subscribe to the newsletter. The second part of the strategy is to create a Facebook page and take advantage of the power of social media. As more people begin to follow you on your Facebook page, for instance, you have a higher probability of your posts becoming viral. If people share the posts that you place on Facebook, which are virtually identical to the post on your blog, you will start to build your list and make more sales.
Once you have everything in place which may take a day or two, it is literally set and forget. You simply need to create a multitude of posts that are scheduled to be posted on your blog, a Facebook page using a similar strategy, and then autoresponder that people can subscribe to so that you can email them different offers from time to time because they had given you permission to do so. By implementing this strategy today, you can start to build your profitable online business doing nothing but blog posting.
