How to Grow Your Blog Into a Business…

Most of the time, businesses start blogging as a way to build an audience. However, the reverse seems to be happening. More and more people with blogs are starting to monetize their traffic.

It makes sense because one of the hardest things to do as a business owner is grow your traffic. If you grow your blog first, you already have a solid following to support your business idea.

Starting a blog is easy, but if you want to make money later, you need to think about your strategy and set yourself up for success. It’s important to know what you need to grow your blog and grow your traffic.

What is a Blog?

A blog is a weblog of content updated regularly. It’s an online publication written in a personal tone, meant to share opinions, teach others, develop a personal brand, or sell products or services. Blogging is fulfilling, but it also requires commitment.

It’s important to be consistent, no matter how often you publish. Your audience grows to expect your posts, so keep at it, and don’t disappoint them.

How to Start a Blog

Finding the time to flush out your ideas and do it consistently is the hardest part of blogging. Once you find the time, starting a blog is straightforward. Consider your opportunities to monetize your blog, determine your audience, and plan a publishing strategy.

You need to think like an entrepreneur to make this venture profitable in the future, so map out the groundwork for your distribution and monetization now.

Ways to Make Money

Most people think of running ads on their blogs as a way to make money, but there are other ways. Building a loyal audience is more important than building a big one, and you won’t earn the trust of your followers by spamming them with ads all the time.

Instead, think of ways you can sell physical or digital products that align with your audience. Sell your services as a writer or designer. Publish a book. Create subscription-based packages with platforms like Patreon. Do paid reviews or become an affiliate for other brands.

You have to enjoy blogging for it to succeed. Dedicate yourself to serving your audience as best you can.

There is a wonderful E-book that Mark Swift wrote called ” Copy The Rich Blog“. It shows you how you can set-up your very own Money Making Blog. It’s a step-by-step guide that takes you through the whole process.

Pick a Niche

With all of the information on the internet, it’s hard to stand out. Try to choose a topic that’s hard to find elsewhere. It’s also critical to choose a niche audience. There are so many internet users that it’s impossible to appeal to all of them.

You can focus on a specific location, present your content in a different style, or focus on a smaller segment of a bigger market. For instance, writing about steakhouses in Kansas City that serve steaks larger than forty-two ounces allows you to focus more deeply on your topic that choosing to write about steakhouses in general.

Choosing a Platform

When it comes to hosting your blog, you have two choices. You can host it yourself or host it on a paid platform. If you host it yourself, you have more customization options. You still have to pay a fee, but it’s less than a paid platform, and you have more flexibility in design.

Using a service to host your blog is the best option for those who don’t know a lot about design or HTML. Some options include Blogger and WordPress. Think about how you want to monetize your blog because not every platform gives you what you need.

You can also use free platforms like Medium or Tumblr. They have built-in audiences, making it easier for you to get started, but they provide less customization, and your blog design ends up looking like everyone else’s on the platform.

Picking a Name

This is a great time to think about what you want to name your blog. Unless you plan to build a personal brand or portfolio, don’t use your name. Think of something catchy, fun, and descriptive of your brand. This name should reflect your blog’s identity, add personality, and be easy to remember and type.

Groundwork for Growth

Thinking about how to grow your blog and having a solid plan in place helps you to build momentum quickly once you get started. If you don’t have a plan, you may end up struggling with distribution because you don’t have a strategy. Publishing is nerve-wracking, but having a plan can alleviate some of that.

Planning for growth involves collecting emails as soon as possible. Use a service like MailChimp to store your subscriber list and make distribution easy. It’s free for up to two thousand subscribers. You can also use MailChimp for signup forms, which is a critical piece of capturing this information.

Embed your signup forms directly into your content with a call to action to subscribe, so the experience is seamless for your audience and easy to manage for you.

Blogging can be stressful, but it’s also a blast. Use these tips to think about how you can grow your blog to make money later. The great thing about starting a blog is that you don’t have to quit your day job until you start making money. If done right, once you start making money, you’ll grow quickly.

How To Make Your Own Marketing Videos…

Professional marketing videos promoting your business aren’t cheap. You get what you pay for when it comes to marketing your products and engaging your audience.

How To Make Your Own Marketing Videos Without Breaking The Bank.
How To Make Your Own Marketing Videos Without Breaking The Bank.

However, there are tools you can use to accomplish these tasks without breaking the bank.

You don’t need Hollywood; you just need fast and free.

Incorporating marketing videos into your strategy accomplishes several things:

  1. Their versatility allows them to live in several places like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, your website, and your blog.
  2. They are eye-catching, enabling your audience to digest the same information in a more engaging format.

Marketing videos are easy to repurpose by trimming, expanding, or converting to GIFs for easy sharing. Infographics also make great videos.

 
How to Make a Video Like a Professional

You don’t need expensive equipment to make a great video. Sometimes you don’t even need your own footage.

An idea is a great place to start.

Try storyboarding your plan and writing a script. Find or create the footage you need. Edit it using an online app. Upload for viewing!

Free Stock Footage

Now for even better news. You don’t even need your own camera.

Seriously.

There are so many great places to find stock footage. You can repurpose existing photography, find material on stock footage sites, and shoot your own footage with your phone.

It gives it a great, home video feel that appeals to today’s audiences. Sites you can check out for stock videos include

They contain photos from around the world, high-quality graphics, and vibrant animations. Public domain sites like Pond5, Archive.org, and NASA contain historic footage and vintage videos.

You can also find free audio on

Paid Music and Footage

Sometimes free just doesn’t cut it. But you don’t have to spend a fortune either. Audio Jungle and Video Hive have sounds, music, and video effects for you to sample. It may be worth the monthly subscription if you plan to continue making marketing videos.

Free Tools

You can use the live streaming feature on most social media platforms to create video. For producing quick, high-quality videos, there are a lot of free apps online. Some even come with their own library of stock images. Try:

GIFs are gaining in popularity, and there’s one for every situation. Most social media platforms allow users to search for GIFs using keywords and respond easily to any comment.

You can use Giphy to turn your marketing videos into GIFs in hopes of becoming the next internet sensation.

For editing, try Resolve for your desktop editing or Power Director for editing on your Android phone. They include professional features allowing for color corrections, stitching, object removal, and much more.

If you use Power Director, you can shoot video, edit, and share directly from your phone.

Making Engaging Videos

Videos perform better and have more viral potential than text or photo. Often, people watch videos on social media with no sound, so use captions to garner more attention.

Many social media platforms even autoplay videos with no sound at first, so with captions, your audience can pause to watch your video without extra clicking.

Use thumbnails to entice people to watch your videos. They provide a headline, or a snapshot of what your video is about, so use Canva to create something that grabs users attention.

More importantly, make sure your marketing videos are responsive to mobile, since that’s most likely where people will watch them.

Don’t let the cost of professional video creation and editing stop you. You need competitive material, but you can do it all yourself and have fun in the process.

Engage your entire team for a memorable experience, or use stock material to save time. Be resourceful and use the free tools available to you to create engaging content that doesn’t cost a fortune.

Once upon a time (an awful story about me)

Let me tell you an awful story about me.

This is about the day when I was the worst childhood friend ever.

Sean came over to play, and he brought his remote-controlled car.

Its name was “The Hornet”.

The day I became the worst childhood friend ever.
The day I became the worst childhood friend ever.

Anyway, it was my turn to drive.

Sean wasn’t looking.

I drove his Hornet into the street and it got…

Just annihilated by a (non-remote-controlled) black pickup truck.

I remember it like it was yesterday.

Moral of the story: Don’t give other people control over your material valuables.

I don’t need to tell you stories about market failures, downsizing, mergers, intra-company scams, glass ceilings, or pay decreases.

You know the way of the world.

There is a significant sense of dignity in putting your eggs in your own basket and knowing that the money you make is yours, is safe, is consistent, and has unlimited potential to grow.

Again, try putting your eggs in your own basket.

We can help get you started.

Best,

Reza Karim Shows “Where There’s a Will… There’s a Way”

Reza worked for IBM for over a decade. Not only did he make a great salary, but he also travelled the world. During this time he also owned several successful business in the Atlanta , GA. area.

Life was a dream.

All his success came to crashing halt in 2008 when the US economy took a hit. Not only did he get laid off from IBM, but he also saw his businesses and investments dwindle down to nothing.

Like dominoes, everything collapsed.

Reza Karim Shows “Where There’s a Will… There’s a Way”

Twenty five years of work gone in a flash.

For the next few years he travelled back and forth from the US to Bangladesh on other business ventures. He found other success but his family’s quality of life was suffering.

He was not spending as much time with his daughter as he wanted to. She was growing up without him.

Desperate to make a change, he looked for a better way.

That’s when he discovered MOBE’s MTTB system. A proven system that works.

He now makes a great income and more importantly has time to spend with his family.

In his own words, “Where There’s a Will… There’s a Way”.

For My Next Trick, I’ll Turn Your Computer Into A Moneymaker…

The crucial part of every magic trick is where the magician distracts you so they can slip something past your attention.

It could be a joke. It could be the flourish of their hand. Anything to draw your attention from what they’re trying to slip by you.

Just imagine if they told you where to look to see how they trick you. There would be no magic. As stupid as that sounds, that’s exactly what the online advertising world is like.

When you Google anything today the first three results are sites that could match what the search was for. But they also have little green tags next to them that say “Ad.”

And even if the ad is exactly what someone is searching for, no one ever wants to click on something that they know is an ad. Because it doesn’t have any magic.

Labelling something an ad is just like a magician showing you where to look to figure how they tricked you. Yet companies still pay Google to steer customers away from their products.

You can’t just pump money into your ads and think that they will sell. If you want to earn any money online, you need to work smarter. Not harder.

And Top Tier Side Income is the perfect system to set you above people who have money to waste on advertising.

Ever hear of Joshua Chamberlain?

He was a Colonel in the Union Army, which placed him in the middle of the battle of Gettysburg.

Several days into the battle, Chamberlain and his unit were stranded defending a ridge that was vital to the Union. After repelling multiple waves of rebel attacks, Chamberlain and his me were left with no ammo and no chance of reinforcements.

As the rebels gathered at the bottom of the ridge for another attack, Chamberlain was out of ammo, men, and choices.

The rebels began their charge. He had to do something or he would lose the ridge and the Union would be defeated.

What did he do?

He took action.

Chamberlain gathered his men and charged down the hill.

The rebels were so stunned that they thought Chamberlain must have been reinforced and retreated. By simply taking action, Chamberlain turned the tide of the battle and the war.

Have you ever felt like Chamberlain?

Left without any choice?

Unsure what to do?

Everyone has, especially when it comes to money.
