Why Set Up A Blog?

freedom-470762-mIf you are serious about starting your own online business then you really should have a blog. What exactly is a blog some of you may ask.

Well a blog is basically just another form of website. The word blog is actually short for weblog. The most popular blog platform used by myself and most marketers is WordPress.

It is so popular because there are thousands of different themes (background templates) available to use for your blog to give it different looks and feels. There also thousands of little programmes called plugins that can make your blog do vertually anything you want.

But why should you go to the trouble of setting one up. Well your blog is your gateway to the internet if you will. It allows you to post all your thoughts and opinions and teachings to like minded people all over the world.

You can interact with them through the comments box and via email to hopefully build a following of people who have subscribed to your email list to receive your latest information on whatever the subject is that has drawn them all to you.

You can then provide quality information and give-aways to build a relationship with them and recommend various offers to them via your email list they have subscribed to. And as they trust you because of that relationship you can sell to them over and over again.

As long as you don`t just promote to them every time you send an email or promote poor quality offers your list can give you the easiest way to make money ever.

You simply send an email recommending either your own related product or someone elses (known as an affiliate offer) for up to 100% commission and sit back and watch the money come rolling in, just imagine the freedom this lifestyle could give you.

Over the coming months as I build this online business I will share with you how to set up your own blog and build your own list to make your first sales online.

Just add your details to the optin box on the right and I will send you an email everytime I post some new information to this blog.

Regards,

Mike

    Hi Mike
    Great advice for anybody thinking about setting up their first blog. As well as the relationship building I’m finding blogging to be a lot fun too. I’m actually doing something constructive with my time on the net.

    Good post Mike

    I’m finding that writing the blogs on my site is something I am really enjoying and I’m also enjoying the feedback I’m getting from those people who are commenting on them.

    Keep up the good work
