It’s one of those things where you feel like you have plenty to say but you are looking for a platform to say these thoughts, feelings, and advice you have been storing in your head. It’s a good thing that the internet has given so many of us the chance to write these things out and share them with the world. We can create a blog now and advertise it to our family and friends on social media. So the real questions are:
- How do I Create A Blog?
- What Types Of Blogs Are Available? (Video)
- Is There A Cost To Create A Blog?
- What To Do After I Create A Blog?
Is Blog Creation Really That Easy?
So you want to create a blog, but you don’t think you can setup a blog? Here’s a quick video on how to setup a blog using your own domain name. If you would rather just get one that is already setup and is ready to go, click here.
For those that would rather watch a video, I’ve got your answer on how to create a blog.
As you probably saw in the video, I have gone through a few different setups of blogs. These range from free with no customization, to paid and not much customization, to paid with all the customization you want to do to your blog.
How Much Will The Blog Cost To Setup?
This question seems to be a question that comes up when you don’t exactly know what you are going to do with the blog.
What I generally recommend to those that are just starting out is to get one that the maintenance is done for you. Having to deal with the content alone is enough on your plate.
However, it is important to get yourself a blog because it does a couple things for you right away.
- Blog creation will instantly give you authority in the marketplace (new or experienced)
- Creates your brand immediately. So learn how to capitalize on this as fast as you humanly can.
- Creates a place that only you control on the internet, unlike Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, etc.The reason being is that they can shut down your profile quicker than you can say, “WAIT A MINUTE!”. The harsh part about it is they don’t owe you an explanation because it’s their domain. You’re a visitor.
- Lastly, this is a place to advertise to those visiting your blog. Instead of spamming your links to people on social media – which never works – use pleasing to the eye banners with attention getting words to grab interest.
The answer to the question in this section wasn’t clearly defined because this question begs your answer to what you want to do with your blog and how much control do you want over your content.
I will give you a few options to start your blog – all of which are good options. Just know that there are always caveats to those options that can add to or take away from your branding, sales, and authority.
What To Do After My Blog Is Created?
Why is this? Some people say it’s not worth your time. Well, remember the days when people said SEO was not worth your time? These are the same people that are thinking with a “lack mindset”!
Part of the authority that I spoke about above is linked to Blogging every day. The reason being – you are going to learn how to write blogs that pull in leads and sales on auto pilot through this daily plan of action.
Other reasons that I have noticed is that when you do this daily method of blogging, you can then promote these blogs more than once to social media, hence building your following and attracting the people that like you. It’s these people that will trust you and buy from you.
So, now you are blogging daily and doing quite well in writing your blogs.
HINT: Don’t put pressure on yourself to write a certain amount of words each day.
Some bloggers will write a blog that is 300 words with a picture or two and call it good. While others will write a blog consisting of 2000 words with many photos and a video. This is part of the learning curve.
The better you get at writing the more you are going to expand your horizons and start putting in more photos because it makes for better presentation with a longer post. You will also start putting in videos because it offers a new way to connect with your audience.
If you’re trying to immediately get to the first page of Google, then you will have to get some training on SEO and I have a connection to a place for you to start learning this than through the company where I learned my skills. You can get your education account (and already setup blog) here.
