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.

How to Grow Your Blog Into a Business
How to Grow Your Blog Into a Business

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.

Talk to you soon.

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,

How To Succeed When You Feel Defeated….

How do you succeed when you feel defeated or when you feel like you’ve failed?

You TAKE ACTION.

Like these people are doing. They turned their defeat into success.
http://track.mobetrack.com/aff_c?offer_id=1846&aff_id=1841470

When you feel defeated or when you feel that you've failed, the best way to turn things around is to take immediate action.
Take Action !

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.

How many times have you woken up and cringed at going to your job that overworks and underpays you? Wished you had another option for income?

Why You Need a Business Plan…

If you are seeking to open a new business – either online or in the real world – and you don’t have the capital, you will need to seek help from institutional or individual investors. And the first thing they are going to want to see before they invest a dime in your business is your business plan.

Click here to see a phenominal business that earns its affiliates $1500, $3500, and even $10 000 in commissions. It’s called MTTB – My Top Tier Business.

A blueprint that you can use to build your business
You business plan is a guide to both you and to potential investors on how you will achieve your goals and how your business will be financially successful.

What Is a Business Plan?

The business plan serves two essential functions:

  1. It provides a blueprint that you can use to build your business
  2. The business plan explains to investors why your business will be financially successful

What investors want to see is a business plan that presents a model of what your business will look like from its very beginning until it is operating at full capacity. Your business plan should include realistic, attainable objectives. If it includes unrealistic revenue forecasts or is built on a swampy foundation, your business plan won’t fly.

Benefits of a Business Plan

Even if you are going to be your business’ only employee and work out of your home, you still need a business plan. That’s because your business needs a map that leads it where you want it to go.

Although your business plan should be as detailed as possible, the larger and more complicated your business will be, the more detail your business plan will need to include.

You will need to rely on your business plan and reference it frequently both before and after you launch your business, so it’s absolutely necessary that you have everything in place as much as possible from the beginning.

Elements of a Business Plan

Successful business plans have five elements:

Background Information – How and why are you creating this business? Here you will include general information such as what types of products and/or services you will be selling.

Marketing Plan – Explain what type of marketing you plan to use to promote your business, such as paid advertising, social media marketing and direct marketing.

Operational Plan – Indicate how your business will function. Include hours of operation, estimated number of employees, location, and any other relevant operational data.

Financial Plan – This may be the most important part. You need to explain your financial goals and a detailed account of your estimated costs, including payroll, rent, overhead, supplies, raw materials and any other expenditure.

Decision-Making Criteria – In this section, indicate what types of things you are going to consider before moving forward with the plan.

Every business plan is different. There’s not one single template you can use and simply fill in the specific details of your business proposal. When developing your plan, present the information so that anybody can use it as a tool to decide whether or not to proceed with the business.

Getting Help with Your Business Plan

If you have a partner, they can assist you in developing your business plan. Others who can help you include your accountant, if you have one. In most cases, CPAs have enough experience to identify glaring errors so you can correct them before showing it to anybody else. There are also software programs available that are designed to help you create business plans. LivePlan is one of the best.

Your next stop should be trusted professionals in the same field as yours. While you may not want to hand your business plan to somebody you will be competing against directly, if you have a friend, a former business school professor you are still close with, or a mentor who can give you genuine, helpful advice, see if they would be willing to take a look at your business plan.

When you have as much feedback as you need and have made the necessary changes to your plan so it is as accurate and realistic as possible, you can use it to attract investors. When you present to investors or apply for a business loan, your business plan will serve as the centerpiece of your pitch.

Tips for Attracting Customers with Squeeze Pages on Auto Pilot

A squeeze page is a page that tries to convince visitors to give you their name and email address in exchange for something they perceive as valuable, such as a free report, eBook or a video. They are also sometimes called lead capture pages or optin  pages.

The purpose of a squeeze page is to quickly build a list of email addresses, preferably from people who have an interest in your product niche.

This is a squeeze page from one of my ad campaigns. It is so successful that it built me a subscripion list of thousands upon thousands of email addresses. Click on the picture to try it out.

Your name and email in exchange for something of value.
Your name and email in exchange for something of value.

Once you have captured an email address, you can use it to send out emails promoting your products and services indefinitely, or at least until the person unsubscribes.

Squeeze Page Software

There are many different squeeze page software programs available, some free but mostly paid. They promise to generate effective squeeze pages for you that are “guaranteed” to capture a lot of email addresses. Leadpages.net is one on the more popular ones on the Internet. This is the on eI am currently using.

The software works sort of like resume-writing software. In most cases it will give you a boilerplate template that you can personalize to fit your own needs.

In other cases, the software will give you pre-built squeeze pages based on the most popular niches – weight loss, acne cream, dating, and so on – that you can post your links on and tie to a place where you can collect email addresses and start building a list.

Like resume-writing software, squeeze page software is most helpful if you have never written one before. But once you get used to writing squeeze pages, it’s not difficult and you don’t really need to spend money on software to do it for you.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Templates

As for the pre-written templates on the biggest niches, they typically already have SEO, which can help their ranking a little on Google and elsewhere. But if the same templates are being used by lots of different people, how does that differentiate your product? In most cases, it doesn’t.

Squeeze page software is so common these days that you usually can get it for free if you look around hard enough.

Rather than using the software for your products, a better plan is to take a look at the kinds of squeeze pages they offer then steal their best ideas to create a squeeze page that is custom-fitted to your particular product and niche.

Brevity Is King

If you are creating your own squeeze page, remember that they are similar to sales letters except tjeu are much shorter, usually only one or two pages.

The structure is basically the same as the sales letter:

  • Present a problem that would be common for people visiting your page
  • Offer your product as the solution
  • List its benefits (how it will improve their life) not just its features (what it does or has)
  • Conclude with a Call to Action (what you want them to do, in this case give you their email address)

You need to offer something for free to incentivize people to give you their email address. This can be a free report or eBook you can either create yourself or pay somebody to write, or a how-to video.

In either case, the free giveaway should be related to your niche and should have high perceived value to the prospective customer.

Value of Autoresponders

You may be familiar with a low-function autoresponder that probably came free with your email account. You know: The one that tells people when you are out of the office or on vacation. The autoresponders we are talking about here are much more sophisticated than those.

Unlike list building and squeeze page software, you will need to use an autoresponder to manage your email address capture and delivery system.

There are lots of different programs available, but one of the most popular and reliable comes from AWeber.com. It costs about $19/month. For that price you can use it to send unlimited emails to 500 email addresses. Obviously, if you need more, you can buy a different package.

3 Steps To Great Online Income…

Does making $10 000 a month sound good…

Like these people are doing:

http://track.mobetrack.com/aff_c?offer_id=1690&aff_id=1841470

There’s 3 steps you’ll want to try to stick to, if you’re after a solid and stable income online:

1– Find a starving crowd.
2– Get yourself in front of that crowd.
3– KEEP yourself planted in front of them.

3 Steps for a solid and stable income online.
The way to make money is to add value to someone’s life.

The Big 3 areas online are health, wealth and relationships.

However those are far too wide.

We have to narrow in our focus quite a bit more.

And what’s the best ways to pull this off ?

It’s by focusing on what has a person’s greatest mindshare, and talking to THAT part of the market.

What’s constantly on a person’s mind?

What problems are they facing?

Do they go to sleep and wake up thinking about them?

What’s the fire’s blazing in their life right now?

There’s a lot of topics you can talk about that around this mindshare problem.

In the wealth space, maybe a person just got laid off, maybe they just hopped on a plane for another work trip away from their family…

Maybe there’s no fulfillment or adventure in their work anymore, and they hit the pillow every night wondering how they got where they are.

Maybe they’re pension is running dry and the see the writing on the wall… that they’ll have to rely on family and government to take care of them in their older years.

Again, mindshare, right?

Start going down this path and you’ll be onto something good.

A plus is, you’re truly helping people in need. Pick a market, and give them the world.

Income will be a natural side-effect if you do this right, and focus on helping others solve their big problems.

Hope this helps.

This 21 step system may help.
