One of the hardest things as an online business owner is to build a blog and pour your heart and soul into it and then be discouraged because the only person coming to it is your mother or your girlfriend.
Girlfriends are the best!
The truth is that is exactly how our blog started. We know that we were not the only ones who struggled in our early days of our entrepreneurial journey, so we thought we would share with you how we created a successful blog for our online business.
We have all heard that we need to create great content that provides value. True statement for sure, but you really need to take it one step further.
Create great content that provides value and is tailored to your specific ideal client.
When your creating your blog and blog content, from the colors, the language, the things you post about, to the pictures you choose, it all needs to be tailored to your ideal client. If you’re not quite sure what language or pictures your ideal client would be attracted to, research other blogs, magazines or books that are also talking to your ideal client. Put yourself in your ideal clients shoes, what problems are they having, where are they going to find solutions, and how can you help them?
Share your posts to different sites.
There are tons of places to share your posts so that more readers see it and come back to your blog. Social media is a great way to share information about your posts with a link that goes back to your blog. Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, and LinkedIn are all great ways to let people know about your blog. Join groups that your ideal clients would join. Other places we recommend our clients share their blog posts are Stumbleupon, and Digg.
Network with your competitors.
The online community loves to reciprocate and support each other. It helps everyone’s blog get more traffic and receive better rankings from Google. You can help your blog and their blog get more traffic by being guest bloggers and having guest bloggers, by commenting on and linking to your competitors blogs.
Grab your reader’s attention and make it pretty.
Your headline is the most important part of your post. It grabs your reader’s attention and pulls them in so they want to read your article. Use pictures; break up the text, use numbers, bullets, some white space, and bold print, to make it easier to read.
Be consistent and patient.
Almost every blogger will tell you their single best piece of advice is to blog consistently. Building a business and successful blog takes time and consistency. Don’t fall for the, “success overnight,” myths. Be patient and keep creating and marketing your blog and you will have steady growth.
What struggles have you had creating a successful blog for your online business? We would love to hear about your experiences.
