Blog Marketing and Home Businesses
For me this is a no-brainer, but I guess I’m the Biz Blogger for a reason. Let’s talk about ways that a blog can be great marketing for your home business. Let’s look at ways to get the word out about your super necessary blog for home business.
Blog marketing is something that all bloggers do.
They market their blog so that they can get readers, and make a bit of money from their blogs. Marketing your blog means to get it out there so that people can find it and read it. It is also a great way to sell things by using affiliate links and programs. Blog marketing can become a home business if that is something that you are interested in.
Making blog marketing your home business might mean that you have more than one blog.
If this is something that you are considering, you will want to make a list of markets that your blogs can pinpoint. You will find that your blogs will do best when you only have one market per blog. For example, if you have a blog about worms (don’t laugh), you will not want to include anything on the blog about cold sore treatment. This is because the readers that read your blog and visit your blog to learn more about worms and what you have to say about them will not be interested in learning anything about scabby places on someones lip. Once you have overcome the relevancy issue, you will be ok. You can however, have a blog about pets, and then blog about all kinds of pets.
In order to make a real living by blog marketing, you need to know every aspect of it.
You need to know what needs to be done to get readers to your blog (traffic), how to write about the things that you are promoting, and how to get it up in search engine rankings. Doing so will lead to successful blog marketing and making a home business income with it.
One big aspect of blog marketing is SEO.
SEO is search engine optimization and it means optimizing your blog so that the search engines will find it and rank it as high as possible. Which also leads to more traffic and leads from your blog. If you do not have time to learn SEO, and apply it to all of your blogs, hiring someone to do this for you might be something that you want to consider. Especially if time is an issue.
Outsourcing some of your work is something that you will need to learn.
Eventually, you may want to hire bloggers or writers that can write the content for your blogs, and someone else that can leave comments on other blogs with a link back to yours. Detail all of the duties on a spread sheet and decide how often each thing needs to be done for each blog. Doing so will help you to be more organized and know what you need to do when, as well as prioritize. Using a spread sheet will also help you to keep track of who is doing what, and keep you from asking more than one person to do the job.
Blog marketing for home business is not much different from any other home business.
You get back what you put into it. If you only put in a couple of hours a week into your blogs, you can’t expect to make a full time income with them. However, being consistent and working every chance that you get will pay off in the long run. You may discover that there is no better feeling in the world than owning your own home business, and working for yourself.
Simply start small, and work hard.
That is all you need to become successful at blog marketing and make the income that you are dreaming of. All of your hard work will pay off if you are persistent and keep it up.
Thank you for reading. I hope to see 1,000 small businesses start their blogs as well as 1, 000 ministries/non-profits.
