A Blogging Pet Peeve

When you DECIDE to launch your blog, decide to WRITE your first blog post so the default message doesn’t come up I mean c’mon… What’s the point of LAUNCHING if you don’t have at least ONE blog post?!?!

Default WordPress Message = Not Very Professional

Default WordPress Message = Not Very Professional

I realise this is a pet peeve of mine, but then this next one pushes me over the edge… SET UP YOUR BLOG PROPERLY from the start!!!

If you don’t know the BASICS of blogging, then go ahead and make the investment in programs like Blogging To The Bank or my Internet Mastery Bundles and Memberships. You can’t afford to be blogging and not know the basic fundamentals, plus I am not the only one with this pet peeve.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

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!

Blog With Passion

I know you might flick this blog post as self-evident, but take just a minute to think about this – what are you most passionate and excited about? I know the Internet Marketing gurus out there say ‘pick the best niche’ and sell to it, but if you’re not into stream trout fishing in Northern Canada – how good are you going to be blogging in that niche?

Sure serving ice cream to a crowd on the beach on a hot summer’s day is a GREAT business model, but if you don’t want to be stuck in an ice cream truck in 30 plus degree (100+ Farenheit) weather for 8 consecutive hours then you should really think about it.

Blogging is no different. You can choose to blog about ANYTHING you want – Imagine that?!?!

People WILL find you and seek you out -> IF you create value for them.

I recently got a few e-mails from a client who’s a golf fanatic – he’s constantly watching golf videos on YouTube, tracks Tiger Wood’s every move… If he created a blog on golf – he’d be LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT. He’d gather a following of like-minded addicts who love the game…

But he hasn’t yet tapped into his passion – pity because I don’t particularly like golf and the video links he sends me are AWESOME. If he posted them on a blog – he’d get FREE traffic doing what he loves, but more importantly…

Doing what he would be doing ANYWAY…

I’ll say that again – he will be doing this ANYWAY – why not blog about it and SHARE it with others?!?!

That’s my point – blog with passion and see what happens!

When you do launch your new and exciting blog, make sure you list it here to get INSTANT FREE BLOG TRAFFIC.

Add Case Studies To Your Blog Posts Part 2

In last month’s post, I explained that adding case studies to your blog posts increases value for your readers. It creates another way of communicating with your readers beyond the constraints of the blog. The thing is a case study doesn’t have to be long or complicated – it just has to be of interest to your readers – like this one I prepared for you -

Now, before I give it to you, you have to admit that’s a great title and you WANT to read it. That’s the whole point. Make sure your case study title is intriguing enough. In this instance, it’s a two-page explanation how Yvonne McIntosh went from 0 to 300 subscriber with one of her sites in 90 days…

This is one of my favorite concepts, improving 1 percent per day, every day. As I mentioned elsewhere, 1 percent improvement is about IMPROVING something not just ‘doing’ something.

That’s why I wanted to let you know what mine was today… I was going through my blogs and editing comments when my 1% popped out…

YouTube Strategy to create INSTANT traffic to your blog

You might know about this strategy, but just in case you don’t it’s worth making sure.

Whenever I came across a YouTube video I liked or even launched my own YouTube video, I used to send people the YouTube URL.

Not anymore.

Now I create a blog post dedicated to the the YouTube video and I send the BLOG POST URL instead.

That creates INSTANT traffic to my blog.

For example, I teach people to develop and Exponential Mindset™, it’s a hard concept to explain, but this YouTube video says it all…

Go on, give it a go and see what happens —

Onward and upward!

Australia’s #1 Exponential Growth Strategist

P.S.

Often, it’s the little things that make a BIG difference, the 1% Improvement that adds up at the end of the year.
