A website is just a very simple type of website, that is highly organised in a structure which the search engines really love. You can set them up in no time whatsoever by going to a website host that has a simple installation process, such as 1 and 1. Or you can download the latest copy of WordPress and install that.
Decide what your site will be about. What type of business do you want to start? What are your passions and interest? What are you good at? What do people come to you for all the time?
Once you start earning some money online, you might want to try out other methods of advertising. Google AdWords lets you pay for an advertisement to be shown on Google. The more you are willing to pay, the greater your advertisement will be displayed. The price you pay ultimately depends upon the keywords you select. Some keywords can be quite costly and some can be quite cheap. It is going to just take doing a little research using the Google AdWords Keyword tool to figure it out. It’s a free tool to use.
Be discreet. It is just normal if you will share some advice on your blog, however, make certain not to share private information. Never discuss your kids’ names, their school and the like. Respect the privacy of your family members rather than mention them on your blog most especially if it concerns their personal life. You can do this by picking the words that you will use as well as by setting up the privacy controls of your post.
A couple presences that are really great to start out with is something as straightforward as a Squidoo lens. You can write a lens on something you’re passionate about. There’ll be some online blog marketing involved, but usually Squidoo does a good job of helping out your lens by linking it to related pages. There are those such as Seth Godin who have pretty much mastered such sites as Squidoo and actually make quite a bit just from the revenue sharing program. How the program works is when you create a lens and it begins making money Squidoo will share a percentage of their income with you.
A plan can be a benchmark for you while crafting a short and long term strategy for your blog. Most bloggers only plan short term but if your blog will be relevant in the not too distant future, then you must start planning today.
The great thing about online blogging is the fact that it is possible to write about virtually anything. You might want to blog about your daily life or issues that are important to you. A great tip is to keep things confidential while not pushing your opinions down the throats of readers. No matter the topic, simply enjoy writing about it while showing passion about not just your blogging but also the subject which you’re writing about.
To summarize, I strongly believe this outline will be of help when writing your own business plan and just before I drop my pencil; I want to ask a question. Do you really think a business plan can add value to a blog? I would like to hear your views in the comment below.
