Everyday there is some sort of news about criminal acts on the Internet and especially violating our children. Most recently in the news I saw an article where there was a “Facebook child abuse image ring.” I mean what in the world is wrong with these people. Now the criminals are coming into our homes through the Internet. As parents we have to be able combat this problem by educating our children and keeping all lines of communication open.
Let me share to you some of my ideas in making blogs useful in list building business. This might help know how to create powerful blogs that would translate to expand your list.
Use links in your blogs. If you use a link in your post, add your primary keyword to the anchor text. You can also turn that the other way around. See if you can find a valuable link for your primary keyword and then link to it. Here’s why.
A weblog that I take pleasure in following let me realize that an airline company was supplying 75,000 bonus miles for signing up for any credit card. I was glad this blogger pointed it out, and I was happy to sign up for the solution by way of his link because I figured he really should get paid for letting me know about it. This is a great example of how do blogs make money.
But don’t just limit yourself to Google! Search anywhere people can talk about you– look at my link, news sources, forums, social media sites, etc. Making a plan to ensure you control page one of Google’s results and other sites was the most important part of taking control of our online presence and turning our reputation around. If this seems too daunting or you find you don’t have the time manage Google’s first page of results, you may want to hire a reputation manager to help you get this fine tuned like we did.
You can market and promote your products to your visitors from time to time. These products can be either digital or physical products. However, they must be related to your blogs’ topic. As your audiences are targeted audiences, it’s easier to sell them the products related to your blogs’ topic.
So if this is the first time you’ll ever make a blog for yourself, you don’t have to think twice. There are many free blog sites over the internet that you can possibly start with. Try to learn the ins and outs of blogging. After you have had the feel of it, you should be ready to get things working for you!
