Ask yourself how you want to reach your audience ....

By answering this question you will be able to choose a social media platform. No matter what, I do recommend you to have a Facebook page to promote your blog. Use Facebook to connect to your friends and family so that they can keep sharing and help you promote your page.

Social media is very important these days. Be sure to use your social media channels to engage with your audience. And by doing this you will see your traffic numbers go up very fast.

There are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to list building software. Do your google research and choose one that fulfill your needs. Be careful not to spend all your money on these software. Ask around what others in this business are using and what are their experiences with the product. 

Use your blog in combination with you email marketing campaign to convert traffic leads into customers and partners. Make sure you follow-up with your campaign as soon as they sign up your list either to follow your blog or to get more information about your product.

 
You can even automate all of this, but remember that people still demand a little bit of personal engagement. Practice and master the follow-up, cause a lack of good follow-up is one big killer.

 

Consistency is the key.....

The easy part is to create and publish blog content. The hard part is to stay consistent in delivering. Oh…..and your patients will be tested. It can be dis-encouraging at times when you are haviing a slow day. Be patient and make sure you never give up.

By being patient and by not giving up you will see success. Success is based on your efforts.And by being consistent you will be able to battle impatience.

This is why planning out your content is so important. Plan for at least 1 month. This will help you keep the momentum going. Keep your focus on creating valuable content through your blog. Build your list and stay connected with your audience through your social media channels.

Now it's time to monetize your blog

There are two ways to monetize your blog: direct advertising or indirect advertising. Which one you choose is up to you.

Indirect advertising is when you are monetizing through a platform like Amazon, E bay or anything you don’t control or own. This includes network marketing and affiliate marketing. I find this the best and easiest way for beginners. 

Direct advertising is when you are monetizing by promoting and or selling your own products and services. This would be online courses , books or any other product.

Some people even combine the two ways. It has been said that the best way is to monetize by using multiple income streams.

Some examples and ideas:

  • Niche blogging
  • Google Adsense
  • Freelancing
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Network kmarketing
  • Your own products
  • Your own services
  • Local blogging
