success starts with KNOWLEDGE
Tip #1 Find your niche
Tip #2 Put in the time
Understanding your audience takes time. As does the research into that perfect headline. Best way is to get feedback directly or indirectly from your audience. Can have your supporters sign up for an account to get an email address to send surveys on material. Overall put your supporters first!
Tip #3 Get online!
There is no way to start a blog without getting online first. Many different hosting sites to use. My preference is Hostinger. Find the one you feel most comfortable using. Some have tools to quickly and easily build a site in an hour for free. Cloud server is not necessary unless you are expecting massive online traffic to your website. Can start with shared servers and move on to cloud if needed.
Tip #4 Keep Active
Have you had times where you see a website that has not been updated since 2012? Most of the time that information is not relevant anymore. Keep the information updated at least once a year to ensure your audience that what they are reading is indeed valuable content.
tip #5 Social Media
Get those users involved! Nothing better than having a place online where people go to see all the new products and marketing. Instagram, Etsy and Facebook are a good start if you are also selling a product on your blog. For getting a brand out there, try Twitter and TikTok for fast responses and free posts. The others may have a charge to advertise to your specific target market.
tip #6 SEO
Try searching something on Google, anything you can think of at the moment. Now take a look at what results show. That is the power of Search Engine Optimization (SEO). There is so much to this topic I am not going to share all of it here. My recommendation is to try free sites first like Youtube to get more knowledge on this subject. Yes there are many books out there, don’t waste your money. Disclaimer: I do not own the video. Posting as a hot link.
