6 Tips For Branding And Communication Through Business Blogging

6 Tips For Maximizing Branding And Communication Through Blogging

I was thinking aloud some interesting business blogging strategies that you can immediately apply to increase awareness and improve your online business.

1) Offer advice, industry news and insights and guide your visitors on some tips and other opportunities related to your business. This practice will make you an authority in the eyes of customers and visitors. Broadcast important information such as news and current events so that others can learn the important facts. If they miss any reports or updates on the mass media (T.V., radio etc.), they can easily retrieve information from blogs that are updated frequently.

2) Encourage your readers to write comments and suggestions. Their comments and feedback will be helpful because at least you know that someone is paying attention to your services and visiting your website.

3) Take their feedback as a means to improve your overall design, layout, the content, marketing process and other business aspects.

4) Post regularly in your blog. Make it fresh and up-to-date. Having more published content expands your online presence, adds more value, improves SEO, increases keyword searches (and more organic traffic), deepens industrial knowledge and sharpens your writing skills too.

5) Repurpose your blog posts as an ebook, infographic, video, whitepaper, printout or any other forms of media for further dissemination.

6) Allow others to reprint the articles that you have written on their websites. However, they need to ask for your permission with the condition to post them with your resource box (or signature) containing your URLs. This provides more backlinks and thus more exposure to your website.

Business blogging is a great way to be heard. There is no limit with what you want and can do. You can write about your own views, expertise, ideas, opinion, put in pictures etc.

Business blogging has helped many industries improve their businesses and has even taken the careers of prolific bloggers to the next level. Setting up a blog these days is very easy with the famous 5-minute WordPress installation, or you can create a blogger.com account and link your new blog to your website, but like any other work, it takes effort to work your way up. Keep publishing good content that is friendly and interesting so that your readers will frequently visit your blog as a part of their daily habits.

Discover 3 Easy Ways To Optimize Your Blog Content

3 Easy Ways To Optimise Your Blog Content Presentation

Most webmasters know the benefits of blogging Singapore and how it positively impacts Inbound Marketing*. It is the most frequently updated module of a website. The freshness of blog posts means visitors perceive up-to-date websites as more credible. Websites that are updated regularly are also spidered by search engines more often.

And the more blog content you write, the more keywords and key phrases you get to fill up and publish. You will also inadvertently create more internal and external links to related content. All these elements help SEO, increase knowledge for the benefit of readers and aid accessibility through search.

Here are 3 other ways to improve your blog content presentation.

  1.     Incorporate text with images

Incredibly long blog posts are the in-thing now, but for some readers it is difficult to completely read a whole post due to short attention span or fatigue. Try incorporating images into your blog posts. It is not only attractive by providing support to the context, it also provides “visual breaks” so readers know they are starting afresh in a new segment of the post. It becomes easier to read that way.

  1.     Click-to-share function

Adding social bookmarking buttons to your posts allows your visitors to easily share your content with others on popular social media platforms such as Google+, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. Your content will reach a wider audience and you will garner more traffic, which is likely to result in greater leads and sales later on.

  1.      Include related posts

You can add related posts to a certain blog post to keep visitors engaged on your site and increase their page-views-per-session. You can try the Contextly plugin, which allows you to customise the look and layout of related posts, or manually select and list out related posts.

How Does Blogging Help Inbound Marketing?

How Does Blogging Help Inbound Marketing?

Not surprisingly, a blog is considered one of the most effective platforms for Inbound Marketing*. An estimated 73% of the businesses use blogging for marketing purposes.

More significantly, a blog is nothing but an amalgamation of experiences, ideas and thoughts, giving insight to readers from the writer’s perspective.

There are 3 compelling reasons for Inbound marketing companies to use blogs as their marketing platform.

Regular Blogging Increases Traffic

Blogging is an easy way to increase traffic to your company’s website. The more links to your website you have listed on Google, the better opportunity you have for web searchers to find your blog and your product.

Acting on advice, some businesses have doubled their blog articles and experienced double the traffic to their websites. According to HubSpot, businesses get 59% more traffic after increasing the number of blogs articles from 100 to 200 and those who blog 20 times/month get 5 times more traffic than businesses that blog 4 times/month.

All you need is an hour out of each day to blog, and trust that you offer remarkable, value-adding content that compels your readers to share over social media. You’ll definitely see an increase in web traffic.

Quality Blogging Generates Leads

Regardless of the niche or nature of the business, blogging is is instrumental to generating leads. B2B and B2C companies who blog frequently get 70%–80% more leads respectively than those which don’t.

Optimized Blogging Improves Search Engine Rankings

Blogging also increases your online presence as more blog posts get indexed in search engines. Use choice keywords in your articles and also list out the keywords, topics, and categories you want your business to be associated with.

As you blog on a wide range of topics (your business, industry, product, customer lifestyle etc.), you naturally build up your keyword database; therefore use related words and expressions as much as possible when writing your posts.

Gone are the days when companies and advertisers could simply assert a message and the public would immediately buy into it. With the growth of the Internet, you now have access to expert opinions and reviews that were, in the past, harder to come by.

When your business contends that you’re an expert in your field through blogging, not only do you improve SEO and web presence, you increase your ability to turn potential customers into actual customers. Having your own corporate blog increases your chances of attracting and delighting visitors like any other blog-savvy companies. The best part is your time, effort, and money that go into producing insightful articles are far more minimal than that of producing more intensive promotional materials.

There are many marketers who have implemented blogging strategies to experience drastic improvement to their business.

Why not follow in these marketers’ footsteps and implement their ideas to grow your business through blogging?

4 Easy Ways To Churn Out Blog Content Consistently

4 Easy Ways To Churn Out Blog Content Consistently

When embarking on the journey of Inbound Marketing*, one of the first steps can be a challenging one—creating sufficient content to drive your blog, Facebook page, tweets, and/or all your other social networking platforms of choice.

Upon being assigned a writing task, most of us sit on it for ages, procrastinating under the pretense of “looking for inspiration”. But when you’re required to upkeep your blog regularly (say, 3x a week), procrastination isn’t the solution. Efficiency is.

To ease the troubles of trying to consistently create content for your blog day after day, week after week, here are 4 tips that will help you easily create content ideas, and transpose them into blog posts that will keep your readers interested, since blogging is an essential part of Inbound Marketing.

1. Allow your writing to be incomprehensible at first

Sometimes, when we are so fixated on coming across as comprehensive and professional through our writing, we tend to lose track of our ideas, leading to what some call writer’s block. When this happens, take a step back from the writing, and focus on the idea you have in mind. Dissect this idea and lay it out in front of you, whether it is in completely incoherent sentences, bullet points, or even mind maps. What is important is that you understand it. When your ideas are all penned down, you will find it much easier to form a comprehensive flow of ideas, i.e. an article/blog post.

2. Pull topics from everywhere

Much of the stuff you read, hear about from people, or see on the internet actually makes for great content, except it’s not always obvious unless you are actively searching for inspiration. One secret to always having something to write about is to always be on the lookout for topics. It is said that everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t. Pay attention to everything you come across and think about whether it makes for good content. By pulling topics from your surroundings, you save yourself the pain of racking your brain when the time comes for a blog post.

3. Bookmark your ideas

When you’re out for a meal or watching TV after work, an idea may pop into your head. It may not be the time of the week to submit a blog post, but that time will come eventually. So whenever you come across something that may potentially make for blog content, bookmark it, on your web browser, mobile browser, key it into your mobile Notes app, or jot it down in a notebook. When its time for a blog post, you’ll already have an idea (or many ideas) ready for writing.

4. Remove yourself from distractions

Let’s face it, when tasked with something difficult, we find a thousand reasons to do it later—a new Facebook notification, a new email, a new tweet to read. Remove yourself from distractions and you will find that you can now write at twice the speed (and if you don’t have enough self discipline, there are downloadable apps such as SelfControl that will block you from accessing distracting websites for any set time).

The 3 Bad Blogging Habits That Singapore Marketers Must Avoid

3 Bad Blogging Habits To Avoid

It has been said that blogging should be an important feature of your overall Inbound Marketing* strategy. We blog to share our views and at the same time generate more interest and traffic to the blog. No doubt there is plenty of online information telling you what to do, but I’m sure many Singapore companies and marketers still face difficulty in generating sufficient interest and sales leads. This is because of some bad blogging habits that they unknowingly picked up but never identified to break. Here are these 3 habits which you should avoid at once.

(Too Much) Brand Lovin’

Firstly, Singapore and Asian marketers have to understand the fundamentals of sharing information on their blogs. We all understand that people have a sense of identity and belonging when they work in a company they love. However, what your prospects ultimately want are answers to their problems, not more information about your brand.

What draws their attention will be the solutions you can provide, or answers to their doubts. If you can do that by first identifying and thinking through some of the actual problems or challenges that people face, that will lead to needing a product or service of yours, and then writing blog posts which focus on these specific problems and how to solve them (if readers choose to solve by themselves. The alternative is to get someone to do it for them, which is YOU), they will be more aware of your blog, and in the end, be aware of your brand. If you start off with flooding them about your company’s information, goals, history, etc., you are more likely to put them off!

Your answers to problems in readers’ mind is the ultimate value proposition leading to better chances at sales conversion. Being able to blog in a pre-emptive manner is a skill of an effective marketer.

Too Many Jargons

Your readers may not be well-versed about your industry. Whatever jargons you use on your blog will largely affect the readability of your post. For a successful post, your readers should not be searching for meanings of the words that you have used. They should be kept simple, easy to read and hence relatable for the reader.

This habit occurs more likely as you climb up the executive chain as you gain more knowledge and expertise. To counter this problem, you can work together with your team to put a post together. The different levels of people in your team will be able to identify any grammar mistakes or jargons.

Riding The Bandwagon

Everything sounds great about riding the bandwagon. You are fine if you are aligned with what other successful companies in the industry are doing. However, there’s a time where you need to realise that you need to DRIVE this bandwagon, not simply ride on it.

This habit of riding the bandwagon does not ensure success for sure. How are you different from other companies? It positions your company as being behind the trend/news, and trying to catch-up every time. It also shows that your article is nothing special, has no added advantages, and is just a post that can be found anywhere else. Instead, try including an interesting twist or spin on your topics and posts for a competitive edge.

These might be habits that you thought didn’t matter to your traffic. Try breaking them and adapting to a new writing style to observe any slight improvement in generating interests and traffic to your blog.

5 Simple Tips On How To Attract Readers To Your Blog

5 Simple Tips On How To Attract Readers To Your Blog

I hope we have all realized how effective blogging can be for Inbound Marketing*. However, to quote a variation of a popular line from a movie—”if you write posts, readers will come”—that’s not going to happen like bees attracted to honey. In fact, some initial legwork and strategic thinking needs to put in so that every article is optimally written to cultivate a following among readers. You have to make every quality article count. It’s not a given that the number of published articles or blog posts is proportionate to the growth of readership.

So how do you attract visitors to your blog? Here are 5 simple tips with which you can use to drive traffic to it:

#1: Post Your Content On Social Media

The most efficient way to get more people to your blog is to submit your posts and links on platforms like forums, discovery engines, peer-sourced news feeds and social networking sites. This is a very natural way to create interest in your blog. Your current followers will start reading it and they may also share your content with their own personal networks. As we know that social media content can spread in a viral manner, so it’s important to post your blog content on different social networks.

#2: Images Can Boost Sharing Likelihood

The arrival of Pinterest and the popularity of infographics and meme graphics have validated the idea that images are a valuable asset and if they add value, they deserve to be shared. By all means, add images into your blog posts. As the saying goes, “An image is worth a thousand words.” Images add richness to your content. The relevancy of images can help emphasize key points and make readers more willing to read a long post. It also encourages readers to share posts on social media because social networks can feature the image in the post. In an e-commerce site, 67% of consumers say the quality of a product image is very important in selecting and purchasing a product.

#3: Create Interest With Engaging And Exciting Titles

We’re all human. We‘re all curious. We judge books by their covers and we judge blog posts by their titles. Knowing that, it’s important to spend some time crafting your title. When you start writing your post, a working title is fine. Get the general topic of the post down and write your content. But before you publish it, come back to the title and think about how you can take it up a notch, making it more engaging and truly pull your reader in.

#4: Create A Conversation

Have you noticed that I use the words “you” a lot within my blog posts? I do this because I am trying to create a conversation with you that is as personable and relatable as possible and I think essay posts were written to bring across a message without engaging readers and that would be boring. I know that because it would be boring for me as well. One thing I’m confident about when it comes to using a conversational style in blog posts: It helps with readability. By creating a conversation, you will see that your blog posts are read more and people are more likely to comment.

#5: Include Related Posts

A “related posts” section added at the end of a blog post is proven to increase pageviews and decrease bounce rate. Beyond that, as readers browse more articles, they become increasingly impressed by the depth of knowledge conveyed throughout the blog, and are more willing share the posts, thereby inadventently attract more new visitors. Refer to this page for 5 recommended WordPress plugins that do the job well. Or you can manually suggest related blog posts by adding links in the post you are writing.

Writing a blog post is easy; anyone can do it. However, whether or not you are able to get people to read your post is a separate issue. Use the above tips to drive traffic to your blog.

Article Builder

I don’t know about you, but when I hear “autoblog” the first thing that comes to mind is “spam”.

That’s because most people who do create them produce spam. They use 100% duplicate content and throw as many sites up as possible, not thinking about the user.

But what if you could create autoblogs that were NOT spam and that the search engines treated like good, quality sites?

What if you could:

– Constantly drip-feed content to any number of your own blogs, with content that is at least 75% unique on autopilot without lifting a finger?

– Have a system in place that automatically builds solid, one-way backlinks to every one of those posts, also without lifting a finger?

– Insert relevant, “themed” images, videos and “Quick Tips” into every one of those articles, on autopilot, without lifting a finger, making that content even more unique and natural?

– Do all of the above with an unlimited number of blogs in over 80 different, highly profitable niches?

Sound too good to be true? Well, not long ago it WAS too good to be true. But not anymore!

Introducing Article Builder! A revolutionary, state-of-the-art autoblogging system that makes all of that, and more a reality!

The potential of this absolutely amazing system is only limited by the number of blogs a user decides to setup!

Article Builder has revolutionized autoblogging, changing it from something that was once considered a “spam technique” to something that is not only credible, but extremely profitable!

It’s an automated, legitimate, profit-pulling machine!

I highly recommend Article Builder to anyone interested in creating a highly profitable online business!

How to convert a web page to a WordPress theme in 5 minutes!

Every day is a new learning experience. It’s been 3 weeks since I last sent a mail as I was deeply involved (and engrossed) in a corporate web project. Demands are higher than usual sometimes, and when push comes to shove, you would agree that we will get out of our comfort zone and do things we’ve never done before.

No one is pushy really My partners are supportive and I’m grateful for that. But this project did force me to rethink about designing blog themes. You see, I’m a marketer and only techie to a level where I feel I can do thing on my own, but to design a theme from scratch is out of the question for me…until I stumble upon this page that tells you how to convert your existing web design into a blog theme in 5 minutes!

Previously, if I want a uniform look to a website, I would have conformed the web template to the theme. Thankfully, it’s now the other way round. Follow the simple instructions on the page and you should not go wrong. After that, the only challenge left is coding the style.css file. The comment function of “Roll Your Own Theme” does not seem to work, so I’m waiting for my programmer to figure it out. The comment coding is done in a content.php file. If you can fix this, please let me know (e-mail me or use the contact form).

Not Using Your Blog Comment Form To Gather Subscribers…What’s Wrong With You?

Only read this message if:

1. You want to turn your blog traffic into cold hard cash…
2. You’d be happy with more buyers and subscribers than you have right now, and…
3. You want to quickly and easily create blogs that will continue to generate streams for months or years to come…

There’s a nice and easy WordPress plugin to gather opt-in subscribers…using a blog comment form…crazy, right?

When someone fills in the comment form on your blog, they type in their first name and e-mail address. So why not ask these already-interested people if they’d like to subscribe to your mailing list for updates?

Because Action Comments is a plugin, it installs super easy onto your WordPress blog. All you need is an existing autoresponder service. Just upload and activate the plugin, paste in the code from your autoresponder and you’re good to go.

You can pitch your newsletter to commenters using either a checkbox, popup dialog box or even send all commenters directly into your list…great if you’re using double opt-in and you hit the right hot buttons.

Digital Access Pass – Membership WordPress Plugin

Digital Access Pass

If you’re looking to run a membership website, especially one that delivers course materials in a sequential manner, Digital Access Pass would be a great choice for you with its built-in affiliate management system and easy integration with 3rd-party autoresponders. You have to get used to its interface and many options, but it is backed by solid support from the developer and testimonials from users at Warrior Forum.

Not only is it easy to install as a WordPress plugin, DAP has many features one might expect in a membership software package:

* Time-released content for members (Drip feed)

* Customizable features for templates, headers, footers etc.

While it does not support Authorize.net and falls short of an intuitive user interface, Digital Access Pass is known to be a a solid membership site software package, more than making up in robust and highly configurable features.

6 Tips On Making Money With Blogs

Yes, more and more people are making money with blogs and there are so many ways to do it!

1. Market your services in your blog. A lot of people think of blogs as places to vent or shout your opinions to the world. This is one use for blogs but you shouldn’t overlook their capacity to create customers as well. Just make sure that your posts are informative and offer value to whoever will be reading them. What kind of services can you offer? The list is endless. Choose something that you like and do well like writing, graphic design, PPC, SEO, email campaigns, babysitting, coaching, anything goes.

2. Sell advertising space. This might be the most common way to leverage your blog to generate income. If you create a well-known blog, it’s pretty easy to sell ad space. People will come looking! For new or not as well-known blogs, services such as Google’s AdSense or BlogAds enable bloggers to earn income from advertisers. AdSense is free and lets you select several ads that are consistent with the content of your blog. You get paid when readers click on the ads.

BlogAds connects bloggers with advertisers and takes a commission in return for any ad placements that result. These types of programs are the reasons that so many are now making money with blogs.

3. Ask for contributions. Some people are leary about this but if your small-business blog supports some kind of cause or issue, it doesn’t hurt to ask for reader support. And readers who become loyal to your blog are especially willing to make a little contribution. Programs like PayPal make it easy to establish a simple on-site contribution collection button.

4. Help sell other people’s products and/or services. Let your blog be the conduit between readers and online sites offering various goods and services. Just go to ClickBank or Commission Junction and pick out an affiliate product or service to sell—it should be something that goes along with the content of your blog. Or you can create a new blog specifically for the products you decide to promote. If you write articles about certain products that you would recommend, you can get paid a commission when someone takes you up on the offer.

5. Once you’ve got some customers, use your blog to keep them. Using a blog to regularly communicate with existing clients as well as other new readers is a way to fully inform them about everything your business does. Your posts can enlighten your readers about the full scope of your products or services and even inspire the to refer you to others.

6. Keep in mind that good blogs are those that are updated regularly and frequently with original and high-quality content. Give your readers a reason to come back to your blog again and again.

More and more people are making money with blogs. Will you be one of them?
