Are you ready to build a brand and business that aligns with your vision and resonates with the people you want to serve? Do you have a goal this year to get noticed online and establish your presence so you can start attracting a steady flow of leads and business?
This is definitely for you if…
You are ready to finally launch your business online
You see the value of blogging and want to grow your business
You want to build your brand, stand out, and grow your network marketing business.
As a business blogger myself, I’m constantly testing and tweaking different strategies to see what works best. When it comes to applying strategies and using various methods, there is no right or wrong. Rather, what works and what doesn’t for your audience of readers.
Have you considered blogging as a way to build your business online?
Are you interested in learning more, but you just don’t know how to get started?
If you are an entrepreneur or small business owner looking to build online, one of the best ways to establish yourself, and grow your brand, is with blogging.
Think I’m kidding?
Back in 2009, is when I officially launched a blog to promote my business. I was brand new to blogging, didn’t have a following (not even a Facebook account), and made a decision that in order to get myself noticed, this was going to be the way to do it!
What should I blog about is the question that floods the mind of most newbie business bloggers. You often hear so many different ideas and perspectives on this topic. Truthfully, you can blog about anything you want. However, if you are blogging for business, the smart thing to do is focus on a particular topic that will attract and engage the interests of your target market.
Think about it, if you are blogging to make money, don’t you want your efforts to produce results? Of course you do!
Many of the women entrepreneurs I work with, many of whom are either moms, single moms or work a full-time job, share one common challenge. That is, believing they don’t have time to blog.
For some reason when it comes to blogging for business, far to many entrepreneurs feel the same way. However, when you are just starting out and have little influence online, blogging is the most effective way to quickly build your business brand and gain some much needed exposure.
There are many reasons why your business needs a blog. In this post, I want to share with you how blogging will not only help you grow your business faster, but won’t require the amount of time you may think, if you have a plan.
Any small business owner who is serious about blogging for business and building a brand platform know that selecting WordPress (self-hosted), is a wise decision. Especially if you are planning on monetizing your blog and want to increase your exposure through search engines.
Along with using WordPress to blog for business, there are a gazillion perks – in the form of plugins, to enhance your blog experience and provide solutions to make your blog DO everything you want it too.
What are Plugins? Basically, they are tools designed to expand the functionality of WordPress and what you can do with it. In this post, I’m going to share with you 4 plugins I use to help me better expand my brand beyond posts and build my business online.
If you are doing business online and you have yet to start a blog, you are excluding a huge portion of potential business, branding and networking opportunities and generating more sales.
If you have just begun your business and currently debating on whether or not you should start a blog for business, hopefully, this post will help you make the decision process easier. Is a Blog Right for my Business?
If you erase out of your mind what a blog is, or looks like based on the conventional definition, you will be able to understand why having a blog for any business online, is absolutely necessary.
Nowadays, it seems like almost everyone is starting an online business. With all the buzz around social media marketing, average people are starting to see how it can help them grow their business with little to no out of pocket expense.
Through the power of technology, purchasing a domain name and starting a blog for business has become extremely easy. From corporate America to stay-at-home mom, lots of people are finding creative ways to earn money from the comfort of their own home.
But is is really as easy as it sounds?
Of course not, because if it were, everyone would be doing it.
You have a business blog, and you want people to read it. And you know the best way to gain a loyal readership is to provide content that is useful to your readers, but you struggle to find something to write about on a consistent basis.
If this sounds like your current situation, fret not. Bloggers’ block happens to even the most prolific bloggers.
Your blog content should provide value to your reader. This means you should strive to show readers how to do something, offer tips on how to improve their lives or businesses, update them on industry happenings, or entertain them in some capacity. Readers should be able to come away having learned something or informed about a product or service, filled with knowledge they didn’t have before, or in better spirits because you made them laugh.
