Is Your Blog Bland?

Is your blog bland and boring like the one shown here on the left? Then there’s no wonder no one’s coming back! To get more people to read and subscribe to your blog, you need to make it visually enticing to match the intriguing content that adds value to the reader. Many writers forget that blogging is a VISUAL experience. With today’s visual media, you need to make sure you add pictures, diagrams, images, MindMaps and of course embed videos from YouTube.

A bland blog like this is created purely for SEO purposes and that won’t be worth much in the long run. Sure the immediate SEO effect will be there, but without HUMANS going to the pages, STAYING on the pages AND coming back, it will die a slow death within the indexes.

Don’t forget that when you launch a blog, you’re doing it for the end game – to have a loyal readership that wants to hear from you.

Make what you have to say exciting, appealing and attractive. Go from Bland To Brand!

Otherwise your blog will languish and all your effort will be for naught.

If you’re going to put in 90% of the effort (writing the content), why not go the extra 10% and get the REWARDS?

Just ask yourself one simple question…

“Would I read and come back to this blog?”

Blog Branding

If you’re blogging as part of a corporate strategy, you need to make sure you are consistent with your branding, otherwise you will lose credibility, preeminence and yes sales. As an Exponential Growth Strategist, I help people get extra-ordinary results by doing out-of-the-ordinary things leveraging exponential marketing strategies on the Internet as well as in business.

Blog Branding: How Important is it?

That depends. It depends on why you are blogging in the first place. If it’s just a fun thing you’re doing, then it doesn’t much matter, but if it’s to make money or reinforce a service or product you’re selling then it is VERY IMPORTANT.

Without spending heaps, you can get really cool stuff done by professional web designers like KillerCovers.com.

I guess the only point I want to make today is that if you want to be taken seriously, you just have to LOOK the part.

The reason I say this is because without proper branding, you’re going to lose people ONCE they get to your blog – within seconds, people get a feel for it and either stay or click away.

You only have seconds to make that FIRST impression.

Make sure it’s a good one!
