Just starting a blog? Have one going, but not enough visitors to suit you? We all need to constantly check and correct our blog marketing to see if it’s “the most it can be.”
Here Are 4 Check and Correct Situations
1. Remember that both quality and quantity count to increase your credibility as the go-to-person in your niche.
Do you wonder if they will ever come? Don’t quit too soon. I did 5 years ago. Then, I created a new blog marketing plan. I replaced my article marketing at ezinearticles.com and other sites with a new business. I wrote to educate and entertain my book writing and business marketing audience so they could make money from their craft. Why? Because of three payoffs.
Payoff One. Blog pages have a higher potential to rank in Google searches, and my already good traffic soared and over doubled the last two years. I check these numbers each month with Google Analytics. You can too.
Payoff Two. By sharing new blog posts with other professionals in the book and business fields, I reached new audiences who appreciate my how to’s and visit my site. Now, I am a guest blogger for 10 leaders in the field. Just this month I posted one blog article on LinkedIn with John Kremer that brought a good amount of new traffic. Over 130 a month become subscribers to my site. That’s important. Because…
Payoff Three. You have a leg up on staying in touch every week or so with your audience, enjoying their blog comments, and continuing to convert sales to much bigger numbers.
2. To stay in the high traffic zone, increase your blog postings to at least 2 a week.
If you are only blogging once or less a week, and are not submitting your blogs to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn groups, you will miss out on building your community and eventually getting sales. This information came from a Social Media report with graphs showing the difference in results, but it also just makes good sense.
3. Increasing your quantity will keep your name in internet lights.
Use a professional writer or book coach to check and correct obvious errors and find out what will engage and hook your audience to read the whole article. If your audience turns away from boredom, you will lose them for sure. From my own experience, 10 points in a blog is plenty. If you are going for under 600-700 words per blog, divide and conquer! My own example–Using my 1800 word “Book Marketing 10 Mistakes and Solutions.” I produced three shorter and easier-to-read blogs with specific keyword rich titles that Google loves. Writing 3 related same category blog posts increases your chances to show you as the trusted authority and please Google at the same time.
Stimulate your Sleepy Muse. To produce new, juicy articles just copy and paste old or borrowed ones into your writing program such as Word. Use only some of the former blog, and add your own hook and how to’s and end it by repeating a few benefits. When you add your own wisdom and specific examples, you make it irresistible for new eyes to notice and finish. Remember, you want them to comment and subscribe to your blog.
4. Get professional feedback on your first five blogs.
Make your audience so happy they’ll never leave you or ask for a divorce. You don’t know what you don’t know, so incorporate a coach’s instructions on a best beginning, middle and end of your blog, because you don’t want to ramble and repeat yourself. The one writing sin we all relate to is “redundancy.” We don’t like it and take it as “talking down” to us. My own rule of thumb–write one blog in one hour. Finish the draft the next day when you have a fresh mind. Follow that by sharing it with a savvy writing person who knows your game and will give you appropriate editing. The third day, you can be proud and sure that your blog will win the hearts and minds of your audience.
Brainstorm your first five blogs with a writing coach, and in just one session, like my client Jeanne, generate 7-10 Blog titles and get one blog developed enough to get final editing on. This takes about 40 minutes.
When you follow these tips you’ll generate fame and fortune because you will stand out from the crowd. When you don’t follow them, you’ll generate results you may not be happy with. Working alone will not produce a quality blog, even for professional writers. Now you know that blog feedback will make you more confident in your writing, and take you to new heights in your visibility and credibility.
