So, how do you build a blog? and even better, how can I profit from it?
Be a problem solver. Make people’s life easier when they read your blog, give them quick and effective tips, try video tutorials and make sure to give your own experience and how the product or service solve that for you.
Be consistent. Create a routine so your readers will know when you will be posting new content. Use Social Media to share a sneak peak of your next blog topic. Create excitement and anticipation.
Be concise. Try to write no more than 500 words per post (is hard, but it seems no one likes to read long articles, at least not me!). This graphic gives an idea of how much you should be writing depending on your industry.
If you know you will write more than 500 words, then consider these tips:
• When is possible, create bullets like this
• Break the long post up with subheadings
• Use pictures, illustrations, infographics, and other visuals to help with the flow
Ok, you must be asking by now, when am I going to start making money?, well that depends, if you stick to these tips and always think about your reader and how you can answer their questions, they will consider you as an expert and a good source to find solutions. Step by step, you will start gaining followers and people will realize that your content is trustworthy and always updated.
