How do you write an inspirational Blog?

Writing your blog is a skill you should master. If you master this skill, you will find that it is easier to attract people to your site. Your aim is to inspire your readers and have them looking for more. Every time you write another blog you want them to come back and read it.Inspirational Blog

When someone is searching online they are really looking for some type of solution or explanation. They want information and knowledge and they want it presented in a logical fashion.

Unfortunately, this is not always the way. When you are writing anything, it must have a beginning, middle and an end or conclusion.

There are rewards out there for the successful blogger. Your blog is your gateway for people to enter your world. When you are writing a blog make sure there is a purpose to what you are writing.

Visualize your writing like creating a building. At first you have an empty lot but then you lay the foundations and you create the structure and finally the roof goes on. You now have something that you can be proud of.

This is how you blog progresses – just like that building you were visualizing. Although each level is separate – it is part of the entire structure. Each blog post you write is separate but it is part of the story you are telling. You may be just telling your story or you may be providing valuable information.

If done well, your blog can become a source of income for you. Most blogs have a squeeze page where the visitor can initially get a free product and normally there is also a product you can purchase.

The free product is often a report. The paid product is always related to the free product and is often a more in depth explanation of the subject. If you want to know how to create a product – check this out.

It is always easier to write on a subject you have knowledge on and you are passionate about the subject. It is imperative that you pick the right niche. If you pick a niche and you are not inspired about that niche you will find it very painstaking to write your blog.

This should not be a hard decision – simply choose a niche that you want to target. If you were going to target the weight loss industry, you would use something like “Easy Weight Loss”. Before starting a blog, if you know the subject you want to write about, go to Google Keyword Tool. Type in the whole title and see what keyswords are the most searched.

This is one of the most popular niches and hardest to get into. The word “weight” has over 45million searches around the globe each month but even a higher amount of searches is carried out on the word “fitness”. Over 55.6 million search for that word globally each month. This should give you some idea how important to use the correct keywords in your blog.

Whatever title you pick, it must be interesting so as to catch the visitors’ attention. There are several ways you can do this but you should try and keep the majority of what you write on your blog, relevant to the URL.

What you need is good quality, unique content and pick about 5-10 top key words and use them with a density of approximately 3-5% throughout your blog. I prefer to stay around the 3-4% because remember you title is also counted because it has your key words in it also.

There are several free blogging platforms but most marketers prefer to use WordPress on Cpanel and purchase their own domain name. A few of the more popular free sites are WordPress.com, Blogger or Blogspot (this is part of Google), Hub pages, Weebly, Scribd and Squidoo. Squidoo, however, does not call anything posted on the site a post; instead it is known as a lens.

Most of these free sites are similar but please when you go to each one, read their terms of service because in that respect they are not the same. If you violate their terms of service, you may be given a warning to fix the breach within 24-48 hours. They will tell you what you have done incorrectly and if you do not fix it at best your blog or post will not appear and at worst, you can be banned from every using that platform again.

 

This is the second blog about getting highly targeted traffic. Today we want to look at turning your subscribers into raving fans.

Every business should have a blog as part of the strategy to get traffic. Your blog must have interesting high quality content that will attract attention.

The most essential part of your blog is the content. If you don’t have quality content there, you will not attract the traffic. And we know if we do not have traffic we will not have sales. Therefore, you must present content that is keyword rich and it will attract people to your site.

Some people only have a blog as their site. To create a blog and get traffic to it, you need for that traffic to spread the word about your blog. You want to get traffic because this is where you will find some customers.

I will list some ways that I believe will help you.

1. Post great content. You want to only post unique content that will provide value to your readers. If you do this they will keep coming back to see what you are posting.

2. Make you blog look great. Your blog has to be pleasing to the eye so it appeals to your readers. Match the theme to your subject matter. If you are creating a blog about golfing, get a golf theme or if it is about fishing get a fish theme. Make sure that you layout is easy to read and navigate.

3. Create a blog with your users in mind. Ensure that it is organized and has categories and tags.

4. Your blog must be able to load quickly.

5. Your blog must contain content that people want to read.

6. Your readers want to look at a site that is visually attractive and filled with information.

7. Your blog should only contain information that is relevant to your subject line. Don’t try and show sales messages.

8. Your blog can be written in a conversational way but must have correct grammar and punctuation. Use a spell check to make sure there are no errors. Ensure that the information you are giving is accurate and informative.

9. Regularly post more content to your blog.

10. Have an RSS feed as this will help drive traffic to your blog.

11. One way to spark interest from your readers is to finish your blog with a question. Invite your visitors to leave a comment.

So go and put a post on your blog. I want you to start attracting traffic to your site.

ScreenHunter_10 Jan. 27 13.11If you ask any marketer – what are some things that you find the hardest to do? You will receive a lot of different answers but most will tell you getting traffic and list building. It is not just a matter of building a list you also have of cultivate a relationship with that list.

Here are some ways that you may already be aware of and you may even be using them. You want the maximum traffic you can get. When you are writing for any platform always read their terms of service and be aware of the value of SEO.

Go to Squidoo and write a lens and create a back link to your site. Then go to Hubpages and write a post there. Both Squidoo and Hubpages are favored by Google.

If you are blogging – re post your blog on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Digg, Reddit, Stumbleupon, Google+ and Delicious. Add you latest blog to Google bookmarks. These all point back to your site.

Go to forums in your niche and make sure you include your site in your signature link.

Now they are the most know ways to get traffic and there are other as well but I have found some recently that I never knew existed. So I would like you to grab my free report that tells you some other methods.

ScreenHunter_03 Dec. 17 16.31Do you know? If so can you tell me? The blog is like a door that is opened into your world online. This is where you meet your visitors and start building that all important relationship with them.

There are techniques that I will share with you that  to increase your opening rates and also increase the rate of sales of your products that you are offering your subscribers.

Do you know why: –

1. You do not seem to have a lot of visitors to your blog?

2. Why are you not getting people to return to your blog?

3. Even though you are constantly putting up new content people are not clicking through to buy your products?

A great many people online are looking for EASY solutions to their problems. Your blog should be one of high quality but some marketers are using PLR articles. Now we all know that this is wrong because if the same article is repeated time and time again, Google will only ever search it once.

Yes the article can be looked at favorably by Google but your audience will not like the same articles that they have seen before. PLR articles will not allow you to build a relationship with your audience.

If you are going to be lazy and just use PLR you are going to lose subscribers and these are the reasons why.

Remember why that person came to your blog in the first place. They were looking for a SOLUTION and PLR does not always give them that solution.

PLR articles, if posted as is, are usually poor quality and people look at that and leave your site.

You have established yourself as an expert in you chosen field while you are building your blog and if you use PLR you will destroy your own creditability. People, that have trusted you previously, will now not trust you. People visit your blog to find a solution or answers so make sure that they will enjoy the experience.

Make sure that each blog post you write is about helping your audience. Give them step by step solutions that they can use. You may think that you are writing a blog that is free for anyone to read but the truth here is that your readers are using their valuable time reading what you have written.

So to overcome these problems make sure that the reader is getting valuable information while on your site. Most people come just to see if you are the one who can help them so give them the information you believe they are seeking and you will have return visitors.
