How to Blog
Second tip is to blog so that it satisfies the needs, wants or desires of your potential readers or customers. With so much noise on the Internet and other social media, you better be able to grab your readers' attention and keep it. You do this by giving them something they need or want. It's too easy for someone to visit your blog once and never come back. There is a lot of information and most customers aren't going to take the time or effort to stay on your site if it doesn't give them they can use. You can do this by giving them advise on how to market their sites, giving them tips on how to grill, or inside information on famous people or events.
Tip number three is fulfill a demand. What do your customers' want? Do they want info on how to write a successful blog? Do the want info on how to take better photos? Or, do they want info on how to coach your little league football team. Whatever your customers or readers demand, give it to them! It's a lot easier and profitable to give the reader or customer what THEY WANT rather than trying to force someone to buy information or products YOU WANT to sell. Bottom line. It doesn't work. I've tried that route.
Fourth tip is to put yourself in YOUR customers' shoes. This is hard because we think we would buy what we're selling or read what we're writing or else we wouldn't be blogging about it, right? After viewing several successful blogs, I'm seeing someone of a pattern. No blog fits a particular mold but they all provide information or products that people seem to want.
However, what I've found is that trying to duplicate successful blogs don't necessarily work either. What I've found is that you have find your own way to make your business successful. There are certain principles that are the same but such as blogging consistently and frequently. And marketing your blog daily. These principles won't change but what attracts YOUR customers will be different from blog to blog. You have to create your OWN brand and stay true to it.
