Your Blog needs you to fine tune it so you get the most from your blog. So many really are at a loss and either will offer too little too late or too much too soon! It is not that difficult if you can maintain your focus and at the same time allow your creative side to come center stage.
How Creative Are You using your own Personal Touch? Are you really helping anyone? If you think about your Blog or niche in this way it changes everything. Normally, if you can provide value to your readers, you can make money. The Value is in what you can help with or suggestions that have worked for you or others that you can pass on. If you want to do it just to make money, that can work too. Lot’s have done that and are successful. What you need to do is incorporate Landing Pages for each item you are selling. EX: E-Books.

I know, it is a tough one to grasp. “The Niche” because that is what affiliate marketing is. Finding something that other people will find value in or are looking for. But with thousands and thousands of marketers doing the same thing………affiliate marketing…….blogging………and more, how do you stand a chance? You are new and you are hardly a computer nerd or geek that knows everything there is to know about getting around! SO, what are you going to do?
I think one of the most difficult things is finding the right person or persons to help teach you the ins and outs. Enough basics so you understand what it is you really need to do. AND THEN, DOES IT MATCH WITH WHAT YOU SEE YOURSELF DOING! Oh yes, a lot of promises of that. But, the thing is, most of them are above your and my pay grade OR they are so complicated even the geek next door is scratching his head. The simpler you can keep it the better and of course the best price!
Where Can I Find the Best Training?
Not everyone wants you to keep thinking it is difficult and you have to be REALLY smart with a computer, S.E.O, and HTML etc. I was fortunate enough to find a training site that not only offered a FREE trial that extended beyond 10 or 30 days BUT if you chose to upgrade for more options it was under $50.00. Perfect scenario,yes. For me it certainly was. I had been run around and dragged thru more courses that lead me nowhere than you can imagine. I had spent far more money than I actually had. Love those credit cards! Not!
Hmm, just a thought……maybe you CAN RELATE!
But that’s not all of it. It takes a lot more than learning how to set up your Blog or Website and get it running smoothly and recognized by the search engines. That takes a bit of time, so don’t be in a hurry to see amazing results, unless you are the whiz of all whizzes when it comes to attracting readers, buyers and yes, search engines! There is another step to all of this.
There is a lot of controversy about what or who you should be Branding. Should it be about You? Is it Your Product or Your Niche? Does your Domain name for your Blog say anything about YOU or your Niche? Can you have more than one niche on one Blog? My thoughts on that are if you are setting up your Blog domain and Site Name in your name (fictitious or real) then YES. Your readers have taken a liking to YOU and they want to know what you have to say; what were you wearing for that special date; what do you recommend and where can they buy it. Where did you vacation and what did you pack? I think you get my general idea.
What is Your Niche?
You need to be Creative and stick to your niche topic. You Need To Tell A Story. If your niche is photography you are going to break this down into areas that would be relatable to the photographer. Professional or amateur. OR, you can do as I just saw in a video……this blogger was travelling and his video had nothing to do with his camera or tripod he had with him, but it was underneath the video for information and links! Pretty darn smart. He caught the attention of thousands and thousands because of one creative idea he was sharing via a You-Tube video clip.
What I am suggesting is that we all step out of our comfort zones and put our ‘thinkers’ to the test! Come up with something, anything that will attract attention to you and what you are doing. Have you ever noticed that those that get noticed are the ones willing to be a little off the wall or outrageous? Yup. It’s True. And sometimes not even that. Just being bolder than the next person works too.
So what do you think? Questions? Comments on how this could apply to anyone? Has anyone tried this and if so, what were your results? I know I would love to know and so would so many others. Comm’n Tell your story! Share some love!!
