Blogging has become an essential way to get your message out to others. You can incorporate text, pictures, links, short videos, or other media in your posts that make your content more appealing to readers.

 

The term was originally weblog and then weblog became just blog. The term blog is also used as a verb that means to add information or posts. Since the mid-1990s blogging has become progressively easier with easy-to-use publishing tools and is now the predominate way of self-publishing.

 

If you own a business or home business and want to spread the word about it, blogging can be a method of doing so and a way of branding yourself. You can write articles about your products or services and post them on your blog with a link to those products or services.

Blog Article Marketing Tips

by Rahimah Sultan

A blog is a tool for publishing whatever you want. You define what that publication should be like based on your interests and goals. Blog article marketing is a process of writing articles, that support your interest, and publishing them on that blog platform. A blog is a technology that’s easy for both people and the Internet to understand.

 

You decide the purpose and the tone. Do you want to attract more leads for your product or service? Should the tone be formal or casual?

 

The basic format of a blog article includes a date, title, author, and the article body which includes text and images. You can include a call to action (CTA) at the end of your article with a link to your lead capture page (LCP) to bring in more leads.

 

Doing a blog right is about understanding what you can do with the technical capabilities of a blog platform.

3 Tips for Promoting Your Site

by Rahimah Sultan

If you are thinking about setting up an online business or wondering how to promote one, the following 3 tips for promoting your site will be helpful.

 

Decide what kind of business you want.

Decide what your business will be. Then set up a blog centered around that interest and promote it with content marketing using your own original articles. Blogging is a great way to establish your online presence. You can employ different marketing strategies to promote your site (blog). These can include articles for ezines, the use of social media platforms like Facebook, paid Ads through Google, and other avenues.

 

Be sure your blog is one over which you have total control, NOT a Blogger or a Blogspot platform. I recommend WordPress.org and NOT WordPress.com. If you use WordPress.org you will have to find your own hosting company and buy a domain name. Domain names cost about ten dollars a year, and you can use GoDaddy.com, NameCheap,com DomainOrb.com or another company of your choice to find a domain name.

 

Write content
Write content for your particular audience that solves a particular problem and encourages engagement. Content marketing is about sharing valuable information to attract prospects and turning them into customers and repeat buyers.

 

You can use your own fresh content to keep your blog up to date and that entices visitors to return.

 

Once you gain more visibility in the search engines you begin to look more authoritative. It’s human nature to gravitate toward those with authority.

 

Post regularly
Make regular posts to your blog and use SEO so you get found by search engines. Be sure to use a call to action (CTA) in your posts with a clickable link that instructs people to click for information or products that you are offering which can help solve their problem. If you have a list you can keep them updated about your latest posts.

 

Before setting up your blog, take time to carefully decide whom you will be writing for and the type of content that you will include.

 

One of the best ways to showcase your knowledge and skills is to provide content that can help your audience.

 

You can share your blog content on social media to encourage communication with your target audience and then use those channels to promote audience participation by redirecting them to your blog or a particular post, and you can ask for feedback.

 

So, thoroughly consider the type of business you want, set up your site, write content to promote your business and gain authority, and make regular posts to your blog. Using these 3 Tips for Promoting Your Site will help you get started.

4 Blogging Tips

by Rahimah Sultan

My first blog was on Blogspot. I didn’t know much about blogging, but started anyway. I used it for an affiliate program I signed up for online. The program owner offered a template that I used. All I had to do was write my article, using that template, and publish it on Blogspot. His affiliate link code was already included.

 

I learned a lot using that template and blogspot. I would play around with it to figure out how to use HTML and how to do a few other things. The drawback of using that platform was the limitation. I now use a WordPress blog over which I have control. The following four blogging tips will help you get started.

 

1) Decide what to blog about. You will need to know what content you’ll be covering on your blog, in order to choose the proper domain name and theme. Give this a lot of consideration, as once you’ve set up your site, it will be rather difficult to undo without starting over.

 

2) Choose a blogging platform. Within WordPress, you have two options which are often confusing to people. They are hosted and self-hosted.

 

Hosted is “WordPress.com blogs.”
Self-hosted (recommended) is “WordPress.org blogs.”

 

WordPress.org blogs give you total control.

 

3) Find a host. Once you’ve chosen your blogging platform (.com or .org) you need to find a hosting company to “house” your blog, pick a domain name, install WordPress, and decide on your blog design and the bells and whistles you want.

 

4) Your domain name should be your actual name. If that’s not possible, choose a name that represents what your blog is about or one that reflects your niche. Take into consideration the following four points.

 

a) Use a short name. “Johnson’s Tea Marketing Campaigns, Inc.” would be an awful domain name. Visitors would find it difficult to type.

 

b) Do not use plurals like Brendas Software. Is the domain name Brendassoftware.com or Brendasoftware.com? You don’t want to confuse your users.

 

c) If your business focuses on a very specific area, strong consideration should be given to using relevant keywords in your domain name.

 

d) Your domain name should end in “.com” and not some other extension such as .us, .net, .biz, etc. The simple fact is that when people think of sites, they always type in .com

 

You’ll get installation instructions with your hosting package.

 

Do not let lack of knowledge be an excuse for not doing something. Just start gathering information from doing online searches and get educated on how to proceed.

 

To summarize: Decide what to blog about, choose a blogging platform, find a host, pick a domain name, install WordPress, design and use your blog! These Four Blogging Tips will help you with your blogging plan.

One tactical marketing strategy is content marketing. It is based on generating and publishing useful information regularly to a targeted audience. In order to have success with it you must do more than just fill your blog with random posts or articles.

 

Your content must serve a purpose, and it must have a friendly tone that shows your personality and voice. It must be easy to read and well planned.

Tips for Content Marketing

by Rahimah Sultan

The base of your content marketing strategy should be articles. You can put them on your own blog, which is best, or submit them to article directories.

 

Although most are taught to start the article content with an introduction, there is another way to go about writing your article. You can begin with the conclusion. Sean Mize discusses this in his article, A Proven System to Write New Content Quickly and Easily.
