Blogging Your Way to Success

How to Build Your Business with a Blog

Blogging is a great way to get BIG impact for your business with very little money. Blogging can generate leads for your business, build in-bound links to your website, and even help boost your Search Engine Rankings.

Here are 3 easy ways to blog your way to success:

1) Set up your Blog using WordPress.org or TypePad.com

A blog is easy and inexpensive to set-up and posting to your blog is very simple. No geeky technical experience is needed for posting and if you want to "blog on the cheap" you can even set up a free blog at Blogger.com.

If you hire a techie to build your blog, consider adding an email newsletter sign up form on it. This will enable you to build your newsletter list so you can build relationships and bring 'em back to your blog. It's an easy way to let the people on
your email list know you have news and info waiting for them on your blog.

2) Blog and Ping!

Make sure your blog "pings" to other weblogs. "Blog" is when you post content to your blog. The "Ping" is a system built into most blogs that automatically notifies other blogs that you have a new entry on your blog.

"Pinging" causes various Internet services and Search Engine "spiders" to visit your blog, "crawl" it and see what you wrote. They then "index" your post on their websites and link back to you. This is a great way to build more one-way links to your blog and website and for attracting new visitors.

Here are some great sites to add to your blog’s "Ping List." >>>

  • Technorati
  • Weblogs.com
  • Feed Burner
  • Feedster
  • Blogdigger
  • Moreover
  • Blo.gs
  • Syndic8
  • My Yahoo!
  • Blogrolling
  • NewsGator
  • PubSub.com
  • Blogstreet
  • Bloglines.com
  • Also see "Ping-O-Matic" at www.PingOMatic.com

NOTICE: You can also boost your Blog traffic by submitting your Blog to our free list of Blog Directories. TIP: Don't submit your Blog's URL, Submit your Blog’s .xml feed url.

3) Post to your blog

Post articles, news and snippets of information to your blog that your target audience will find helpful. Try to post at least a couples times a week and be sure to use your keywords related to your business and/or product. Plus, you can link
your blog posts to your website(s)
which will help increase the amount of keyword optimized in-bound links to your website(s). This is a great way to boost your search engine rankings and visitors.

Blogging is a fun way to build your business, and can provide BIG impact for very little budget.

Good luck!
