“How do I blog?” is a question often asked by newcomers to Internet Marketing. There is a lot of trepidation amongst newcomers about creating a blog, and then making it successful. However, you do not need to be nervous about setting up your own blog, or indeed about blogging.
Your first task when considering a blog is to choose your topic. Your blog will fair better if you try to choose a tight niche (called a micro niche), rather than making such a broad sweep across a topic that your readers find there is too much content for them to take it all in.
This broad sweep may also encourage you to write very non-specifically, where as a micro niche can enable you to tie down specific details in an area and provide unique quality content that is extremely valuable to your reader.
A blog should be updated with new and unique content on a regular basis. You can choose how often that is, but to retain a regular readership your visitors should have some idea about how often you update. One way to help your regular readers is to get them to sign up to your RSS feed, or even better to join your opt in list so you can advise them when you have released a new post.
Get to know your readers, find out what they need to know by activating your comments on posts and interact with these visitors. This will enable you to write targeted posts, and promote targeted products. Also sign up to forums in your niche and interact with other forum users. Don’t forget to put your url in your signature so readers can link back to your blog.
Keep your blog posts on topic, and don’t make them too long. If you need to write extensively about an area either break it down into a series of shorter posts, or create a report and link it to your opt in box so your readers can receive it free of charge for signing up to your list.
