Why Blog? The Benefits Of Blogging For Business And Marketing
It’s not like writing for a book, or publication , a newspaper or magazine but blogging is prevalent on the Web because we love sharing, reading and hearing about new experiences. Whether you’re just starting out or have been blogging for a while but need a refresher (or a kick up the bum!) this course has been carefully crafted to ensure participants finish with a bank of knowledge and a thriving blogging community behind them to propel them into the right direction.
Here you can learn about how to make industry contacts, how to improve your search rankings and SEO, the value of attending blogging conferences (yes they exist), what should go in your media kit (yes you must have one) and most importantly, how to pitch brands and tourism boards AND how to monetize your blog.
You also have the fact that blogs are very search engine friendly because of the way that they are written and organised (automatically, I might add) and because the philosophy of linking is an integral part of the blogosphere as a result, business blogs have the tendency to rank more highly than other types of websites.
I show you step by step instructions to setting your blog up with ads, how to set up a membership site which is the perfect solution to easily generating recurring income, how to create your own products no matter what niche you’re in and make 6 figures from it, how to get the best commissions and sell other peoples stuff, and a lot lot more inside there.
So at first I wrote about my situation and what I was doing to help come out of it. Friends kindly read it. Then I began to concentrate on areas where I am most qualified – leading Christian retreats and Pilgrimages, and helping people to find out where to go and how to make the most of their time away.
Submit Your Content to Blogging Communities: Blogging communities have existed for a long time and are a good place to get traffic; some notable examples are Bizsugar in the business niche, Blokube in the blogging and social media niche and DesignFloat in the design niche.
For example, you are right that my blog is incomplete – it hasn’t been up long and it’s kind of one of those minimum viable product type of things – I get about a 1000 visits a month and I think the content is good enough that people are willing to give me some slack on this (particularly since this is a complete side gig for me).
Ever since I started my business, a good year and a half ago, I have been devouring a LOT of eBooks and online courses, including ones that cost five times as much as BE&BH, in order to pump up my knowledge on how to navigate this beautiful online world of business and blogging.
