9 Elements to Effective Blogging
If you are somewhat familiar with the idea of blogging, you're familiar with the basic functional elements of the creation of a blog. It starts with a domain name, then an hosting service, then we need a software for blogging as well as traffic and content. Straight forward, right? However, there are less tangible factors each successful blog owner needs to consider, before setting up a blog: 1. Vision. What is your vision? What do you plan to blog about? And who will you write to? A clear and concise "picture" of what your blogging's goals and purpose are is critical for your long-term success. Too often what happens is that bloggers "think" they have an idea of what they plan to achieve and how they intend to accomplish it. Then they find themselves on"the "Super Information Highway" in which information, concepts as well as irresistible offers and simple "stuff" comes flooding in , and they quickly and quickly find themselves distracted and way off course. Instead of spending the next six months, or more, wandering aimlessly trying this and that but getting nowhere, create a roadmap of precisely where you want to go and the best way you'll get there. 2. Passion. What do you love to discuss? It's not necessarily what you "know" most about however, what are the things you truly get excited about? Many bloggers "guru's" will tell that you should find an industry that makes money. They do not encourage you to think about the subject or the content of that niche, or your personal interest in that sector. While this is a good idea only for a tiny portion of bloggers, it may not work for the majority of bloggers. For more detail please visit>>> Take a moment to think about the question. If you go to a blog, and go through the blog's content can you or can you tell the difference in the content between information and passion? If it's figures and facts, statistics and details you need, then there are plenty of "informational" sites from which to get that stuff. There are websites specifically blogs where you can find more than just "information." You can find insight and emotion as well as opinions and contrasts in a blog run by someone who is passionate about what they do. Passion that shines right through in their content and their web-based "voice". If you write out of a passion, you will find that your blogging "tasks" consist of creating content for your blog, will be a much more enjoyable and productive process which will make your audience more loyal and responsive as they become more connected with your blog. 3. Commitment. Are you willing to make the commitments needed to build and run a successful blog? It's one thing to set all the necessary elements in place, but what happens next is where most bloggers are blind-sided by the realities of blogging. There's content. Plenty and plenty of content. If you write it yourself, hire outsourcing companies, or employ Private Label Rights (PLR) content, it's important to have an ongoing commitment to provide your readers with new information that is up to date and keeps your readers coming back to read more. It's about establishing and maintaining a relationship with your readers. Keep in touch and keeping up to date with the latest aspects and elements of your niche. To keep their attention and build your credibility and their confidence. Of course, there is marketing. You can't just simply create an online blog and expect it to be flooded with visitors without any effort put into it. So knowing and being prepared for the many commitments necessary to successful blogging is critical for your success over the long term. 4. Content. Where do you get the content you need? Do you plan to write all of it or is it some combination of sources? As previously mentioned Content is the main driving factor behind all successful blogs. In-depth, fresh, and passionate and up-to-date content inspires new readers as well as keep readers coming back. Being able to have a realistic and clear idea of where your content will come from, and how you will show it, and also how often you will be able to provide it with your viewers are essential aspects to think about before you start blogging. 5. Systemizing and Scheduling. What days will you schedule your posts? What days will you market? When do you plan to perform maintenance tasks? One of the most ineffective ways to run the blog is "on-the-fly". If you had an "inside view" at any successful bloggers daily blogging routines it would be clear that they have an structured system that is built around a strict calendar of when they should perform what. Respecting and recognizing the time elements that are involved with marketing, posting, and establishing relationships with potential customers could be one of the most important aspects of taking your blog from point A to Z efficiently and in a profitable way. There are numerous blogging tasks that are most effectively executed promptly. There is a specific order to tasks, and a time frame to the execution. Understanding what the tasks are and how to structure and organize them, will be the most significant factor in the performance of your blog. 6. Marketing. What are you going to do to market your customers. What are you going to market? Are you familiar with the blog marketing landscape and know how to utilize it to your advantage? The primary thing you need to consider when it comes to blogging marketing is to first and foremost, have a clear concept of who you are and what you can offer. A successful blogger strives to become an "authority" in their area of expertise. They tailor their marketing to building credibility and trust among their target audience. Your blog must be seen by your marketing efforts as being the "go-to" place for your market, and your readers should quickly and easily recognize that you are their primary source. Understanding the marketing landscape of the present, especially for blogging, is crucial to ensure that your marketing efforts to be efficient and profitable. The current landscape of online marketing is quite different from years ago, and demands you to be innovative in your thinking, observant and most of all ....diversified. The worst thing any blogger can do, that is serious about long-term success, is to concentrate all of their marketing resources, attention, or resources into a single marketing campaign. It is also not wise to focus on a exclusive marketing channel in order to boost their long-term growth. Your marketing should be modular in nature by the fact that it builds on itself so that you create the foundation for a long-term and stable foundation on which to build, and build upon, in the years to come. 7. Tools for blogging. What do you really require to get started? What can you do to maximize the tools you're using? In comparison to other industries in the world, blogging requires very little in terms of starting investments in particular when you consider one of the biggest and most efficient tools a blogger needs is available to them at no cost. WordPress is one of the best and most effective blogging platform that is available today. It's the most popular for various reasons. It's very practical and flexible. It includes optimization components and features that dramatically reduce the requirement to become an expert in optimization. It's easy to use and intuitive, and the best part is in that it's free to download for everyone at no cost. Beyond WordPress, there are a few other tools that every blogger will want to have in their "toolbox" including a good username/password/profile management program. A reliable and solid blog tracking program. And a spreadsheet program to manage your blogging system and schedule. There are additional tools many bloggers are drawn to but aren't very efficient, and could prove to be a waste of your dollars and your time. Like mass submission services or programs. Don't fall into the traps offered by those offering the possibility of submitting your blog to hundreds, or thousands of websites, for what appears to be a reasonable amount of money. It's not true and there are far more effective and productive methods to promote your blog and spend your money. 8. Collaborating. Who are your rivals? How can they help you in return for helping them? In today's online world it's quickly becoming less dog-eat-dog and more of a banning to bloggers from similar and similar industries. There are increasing "syndicates" being formed where online sellers with similar niches are pulling their ideas, resources, and audience together with great results. When they come together, they will be able to draw on each other's strengths and also help each other overcome their weaknesses. And they can still profit. The market they are targeting benefits because now they can access many more products, information and services accessible to them in an organized way, sometimes even in one central location. This can be a very simple and fast method for a beginner blogger to build their blogging business in a relatively short amount of time, and to leverage off of others with a mutually beneficial way. 9. Costs. What is the cost to set up and run the blog? Of course, the common logic tells us that it's going to cost much less to create a blogging business than it would a brick and mortar one. There are however expenses to be paid, and these include hosting, domain registration, domain registration and possibly some help from freelancers in writing, or a monthly fee to keep a Private Label membership for copy, and then there may be some software expenses and, finally, marketing. One of the biggest advantages of a blogging business is the ability to decide whether you have time to invest or more money. If you are short on money, you might want to consider performing the tasks you are able to do yourself, at least for now. If you are able to do it in less time and more cash available and money to spend, you can pay for more of what is required to be completed.
