The third most important thing for a blog to get noticed, read, and adored:

Passion

What is your blog probably lacking?

Well, probably passion. Unless,  you love what you blog about.

Reader, tell me something…do you love what you blog about?

Do you wake up in the morning excited about blogging, or do you dread it?

Do you blog  because you want to…I mean, you really really want to? Or do you blog because everyone else is, and someone told you that you, or your business, need to?

It’s time to get the passion back into your blog.

Listen, I know what it’s like to wake up in the morning and feel “bleck” when it comes to blogging. But it doesn’t need to be that way.

You just need a support system. An ally. Someone in the trenches with you.

Grab my daily inspiration and get some creative juices flowing.

Theres no charge, only feel good, hi five vibes in your inbox everysingle day.

Pitch-free. Nag free (okay, usually nag free, but hey, sometimes we all need a forceful nudge to keep blogging.

And I promise to keep it relevant and spam free.

Are you tired of surface scum in your inbox?

How to Build Rapport with your reader


Building rapport with your reader

lets go fishing
rap•port ră-pôr′, rə-
n.
Relationship, especially one of mutual trust or emotional affinity.
To have relation or reference; relate; refer.

Harmonious relation; correspondence; accord or agreement; affinity; analogy: used as a French word, often in the phrase en rapport, in or into close relation, accord, or harmony.

When I first made my blog, I remember how sharp it was.  I was very proud of the informative articles, and professional formatting.

The problem was, I was treating my blog more like a website than a blog.

Rather than speaking to my reader, I was simply encyclopedic in my writing approach.

I still got good rankings in the search engine, and even good, return traffic.

It wasn’t until I began using the human element that I really found increase in my business.

Now, I need to tell you all something…I am a very private person. What I mean is, I don’t really like revealing too much of my personal life, and really, from a professional stand-point, that is a good stance to take.

I mean, aren’t we always taught to keep our private lives out of the workforce?

I was certainly taught that. But  then, things began to change.

Internet marketing began to take on a much more personal tone.

People began using social media to promote their business.

Businesses which used to be blue chip quality began acting like chimpanzees, and doing all sorts of weird stunts just to get “share” and “likes”.

And it seemed to work for them.  For a while. Until everyone began acting zany, and then the appeal was gone.

Thankfully, many such businesses regained their sanity and quit acting like teenagers, gangstas….anything…just to get attention.

Now that things have calmed down a bit and the smoke has cleared, many businesses are still left wondering,
“How can I seem approachable while not being too casual, or unprofessional”.
“Is it okay to mention what I do in my personal life? Just how personal should I get with my audience base?” And
“which parts of my true self should I actually share”?

I answer all of this in my ebook, “How to build rapport with your blogging base”.

If you have ever found yourself wondering how to reveal just enough without seeming too familiar or forward, then you need to read this.

It’s just a straight forward read on how to connect with your readers without revealing too much.

If you have ever wondered where the  professional “line” is with blogging, then you need to grab a copy.

You’ll learn

  1. How to assume the proper tone with your audience so that they instantly connect with you—without seeming too casual or too serious.
  2. How to identify with your audience while still positioning yourself as a thought-leader
  3. When it’s really okay to let it all hang out, how to do it, and how often.

There’s a special bonus section for information marketers (what can be more stressful than creatively trying to provide daily content without giving away your product?)

By the end of this course, you will know how to wake up each morning and provide fresh, relevant, meaty content that touches the heart of your reader.

The cost? $83

Note: This does not cover the technical aspects of setting up or designing a blog. This is strictly about writing, psychology, and content.

Brain Blobs and your Blog


Medical science has shown that negativc-brain_afronte thinking people actually have a dark cloud in their brain, and it grows when they continue to think negatively.

It’s almost like a downhill ride that keeps getting faster and faster

because the more they think negatively, the more the dark cloud grows. And the more it grows, the more they think negatively.

The interesting thing is, most people don’t even know that they are doing this.

I must confess, as an analyst in SEO and as a strategist, it can become very easy to develop a cynical mindset…if you are an internet marketer, an affiliate marketer, or a marketer of any kind, then you know how difficult it can be to remain positive instead of always gravitating toward the negative.

Everything on the internet seems to be changing constantly. So many times, when we try something new, it’s hard

to believe for success knowing that what you build today might seem obsolete tomorrow.

It isn’t easy staying positive sometimes. That’s why I created “the Inspiration Station”.

It’s a weekly series of inspirational bites, similar to Motivational Monday, but from a purely inspirational standpoint. In other words, the focus isn’t just on staying motivated in business, but also in your every day life.

Pitch free, agenda free, just pure inspiration.

The Blog that said and taught nothing


 

teenexpression

Hey reader, is your blog “thin” in information?

Is the purpose of your blog to educate your readers, or just to get sales?

Do you yourself really appreciate visiting a blog that only shoves product promotion your way?

When you finally do  get a post to do well in the rankings, do you act like a little kid screaming “notice my stuff, buy my stuff. Or by this one here, or maybe this one ..” and the only people who read your site are doing it so you will visit their site…and buy their stuff???

Because, if you are doing that, if all of your posts are nothing but order pages, then you may be

An affiliate marketing site

How’s that working for you? Well, actually, if you have a bunch of followers into “shiny gadget syndrome”, then it may actually work quite well for you…or not.

Because, if none of those other people with shiny gadgets of their own are interested in buying your shiny gadget, then you probably aren’t making much money.

Tell the truth, affiliate: are you really happy? When you sell something as “the latest cool thing” that really isn’t “all that”, don’t you secretly lose respect for your sucker customer…and yourself?

There really is a better way to sell on your blog.  But selling on your blog is not the same as selling something in a store.

Let me explain

People don’t visit your blog to buy something. They read it to

a. Read interesting stories

b. Meet interesting people and then

C. To connect with you.

I’m not saying you can’t offer your product, and I’m not even saying you can’t mention something you sell in each and every post.

But the majority of what you write should inform, engage, and delight your reader….not show off your shiny new gadget.

A lot of very good affiliate marketers don’t really understand how to promote their product on a blog,  lack writing skills, or don’t think they’ll be able to come up with enough material to write.

But there really IS a secret (a word I don’t use alot of, because it’s been used so much), there is absolutely a productive system to being creative, fresh, and providing continuity to your blogging experience.

When you sign up for my course, you will learn how to post fresh,  high ranking, relevant and engaging blog posts day after day, that aren’t lame, that get noticed, and which create some sort of action toward the sale.

When you are ready to take your blog to a whole new level, then invest in your future with Blogging Made Better

You’ll learn  how to write posts that people actually read, “like” and share, and you’ll feel good doing it.

Isn’t it time to start adding value to the blog-o-sphere?

The Blog in a testube


 

Fellow blogger,

Have you ever seen a blog that was made in a test tube?

What I mean is, it had all of the “right” elements…it had page rank, great SEO, a gazillion likes, and ….no sales.

And it maybe even had no soul...as in no art factor. Everything was done “by the book” with no heart.

If your blog has no sales, it could be because, it has no heart. It’s a test tube blog.

But blogs are meant to be so much more than a series of checked boxes.

A blog is supposed to be relational.

If you are a professional, you may be treating your blog like a  business website.

But Business websites lack warmth.

Are you an independent private person? If you are, then your blog may lack the human element.

So. How do you give your blog heart without revealing too much of your (private) soul?

More often asked, how do you provide engaging information without giving out your

info product for free?

In my e-series “How to build relationships through blogging”, I  cover the basics of this. The cost?  Just $50

Note: This is for bloggers who want to learn how to have something to say, not just something to sell. But it’s a back door approach to winning customers.
