Step 2: deliverables, dates and bulk create – 7 Steps to Achieve Blogging Success System

Step 2: Decide on deliverables, dates and bulk create – 7 Steps to Achieve Blogging Success System: Step

How did it go? Did you read and follow Step 1? You can view it anytime here.

Decide on deliverables:

There are many ways to curate content for your blog; writing, video, audio, images are all good mediums to use. I have two ways of determining which ones to use.

I recommend you use a combination of them and once you have your posts created you can do just that by re-purposing them in many ways (coming up in step 6). For now, here’s a simple way to decide on what one to use on a regular basis for your blogging plan. Ask yourself what you are most comfortable using. The best route to consistency will be to start with something that doesn’t make you cringe or scare the “bleep” out of you. Yes, I know video gets high ranking and loads of street cred. It’s an amazing way to go. However, if you can’t stand being in front of the camera or the editing process makes you nuts or your learning curve will take a few months or you have to spend money on equipment… well, you know what can happen…you won’t blog! So, start with the thing you are most comfortable with and make a plan around that for now. You can and will continue to evolve so start with the low hanging fruit – what do you enjoy, what can you do with ease, what will support you in getting it done?

Decide on dates:

The next piece is to plan. How many days a week or month will you take the time to blog? The blogging process can take time and consistency is key. So, look at your calendar and the number of posts you have in your blog series. Will you post once a day, once a week, twice a month? The more the better, but the same goes for this as with the deliverables – being realistic will support you to getting it done All things will evolve and grow with you and your business. Again, the key is consistency, he search engines like to see consistency and your readers will come enjoy your regularly scheduled posts. You can always start off with a lower commitment and add to it over time.

Bulk Create:
This is one of my favorite solutions to creation. It’s probably due to my having a creative approach to everything I do, when the ideas hit, they hit hard and I like to curate several pieces of content at once. I prefer to sit and write or set up the camera and record video by doing several in row. I find with this approach, you can start to get ahead of the schedule and focus on other areas of the business. Mind you, it is not fail proof. Sometimes you just need to do your post for tomorrow and get it out – it happens. However, bulk creating will help relieve that pressure.

With all of the above mentioned , the most important is to be true to you. Take into consideration your personal creative flow, your schedule and your preferences. Make sharing your ideas something you enjoy and your blogging will be easier and flow more freely than you ever could have expected.

Stay tuned for Step 3.

Step 1: Choose a Topic for a Series – 7 Steps to Achieve Blogging Success System

7 Steps to Achieve Blogging Success System:  Step 1:

  1. Choose a topic for a series

Simple enough, right?

Before we get into the action items for choosing your topic, let’s go over a few thoughts about what this topic should mean to you. Hang in there for a minute because this might seem a little woo-woo, believe me, it will be worth it.

Blogging is not something that comes without dedication, time, energy and thought. It also happens to require consistency and a certain level of commitment (which we will discuss more in Step 2).  So, & here’s the woo-woo, you MUST feel a connection to the content you choose to create. You need to have some part of you that loves talking about, creating, and sharing this part of your knowledge and your business. It’s just won’t be worth it to set yourself up for something you don’t enjoy. While we go into the next few steps, keep that in mind and your process will be smoother and easier than you would have thought. Promise. 🙂

Here is your action list for choosing a topic for your blog:

Start with a brainstorm / brain dumb, an unedited list of possibilities answering these questions:

  • What information can you share (write, video, audio) that would be interesting and valuable to your readers?
  • What monthly themes or trends apply in your business?
  • What do you find yourself talking about with clients that you most enjoy? (You know those conversations when you just forgot the time was going by?)
  • What topics are trending in current times?
  • What can you share that will remain evergreen and will be as valuable a year from now as it is today?
  • Is this a topic that can be monetized?
  • Are you passionate about it?

(Cheat Cheat: For example – my own current Theme is Sharing Simple Systems to make my clients lives easier. This first topic on blogging will consist of 8 blog posts. My next topic series is Website Blue Print Workshop for beginners. Make sense?)

Challenge:

Prioritize those topics to come up with 3 Themes and 5 topics for each theme.

Now THAT’s a series.

Stay Tuned for Step 2.

Do You Need A Blog

Don’t You Need A Blog? – Website Done Today Series

Hi, I’m Patty Rose. I have a question that I get asked all the time by my clients when I’m helping them get their websites for their businesses up and running and it goes like this.

Do I really have to have a blog? I don’t want a blog. I’m not a writer. I don’t want to do video. I don’t how to blog. I’m not a blogger.

My answer is to Do you need a blog is – Yes, you must have a blog and here’s why.

Blogs are what give your static website life and this is only if you have your blog in the same location as your website, which is the only time I say yes, it’s a must. So using certain platforms, like the ones that I recommend, you can have your blog in the same place as what used to be a static website.

Where everything on your home page, about page and sales page pretty much stays steady, your blog page has new, fresh, content coming to it every day. But for the question ‘do you have to have a blog’, my answer is yes. I want you to set up your website with a blog attached. There are platforms that allow this and the next few videos will get into a little bit more of the why and the how to do that.

So come on over to WebsiteDoneToday.com. This is Patty Rose and I’ll see you over there.

How to Get Traffic to Your Online Business

How to get traffic to your online business it

Does this sound familiar to you?

You stroll past a shop, peak in the window, and something grabs your attention. You become curious and you like what you see. So, what do you do? You take a step inside, of course. You browse, you look, you check the pricing for the items you are interested in and if all goes to your liking….Yep, you guessed it. You buy.

On the flip side, this is your client. This is the customer you want. This is the person you want to invite back to visit your shop again. But, the first step is to get them to walk past the shop. How do you get them to walk past your store? How do you get traffic to your business? AND, how does this translate to doing business online?

This is a typical scenario to an offline business and the shop on Main Street. But, what many online business owners have trouble with is getting this to happen for their online business. You may have a website that offers service based coaching, an e-commerce store, or perhaps you sell your own digital products.

While offline business marketing has been around for decades, entrepreneurs with online businesses can get lost finding the best solution to getting traffic to their websites. This because there are so many possible options all with varying prices.

To get you started, I’m getting ready to publish my upcoming series of blog posts on driving traffic to your website. I’ll be sharing a few free  and low cost methods that are popular to many online businesses entrepreneurs.

5 Bucks a Day: A Quick Easy Read You’ll Love

Every now and then, I come across something that is so fantastic, so wonderful, so enjoyable, that I want to shout it from the rooftop and share it with everyone.

Here is my SHOUT!

This little easy to read, inexpensive, inspirational ebook is so jam packed it’s a must have for your reading library. After reading 5 Bucks a Day, Jr. by Dennis Becker and I was very, very (did I say very?) inspired.

In it, Dennis lays out a system he created for his online business success. It came to him as an “Ah-ha” moment and changed his life. His system is now changing the lives of so many business minded entrepreneurs working to build additional income on the internet.

5 bucks a day, dennis becker
One of my favorite aspects of the book, is Dennis Becker’s authentic telling of his struggles with internet marketing. It’s quite refreshing when someone is brave enough to tell the truth, one that so many have experienced as well.

There are many so called “gurus” online that are not necessarily telling you the truth (not all but many). This book talks about these messages, and shares a simple yet powerful message to help you get out of the page shuffling, web surfing, chasing your tail lack of productivity.

The result is a system that teaches FOCUS, time effective, efficient method to your success.
I guess you can tell, I highly recommend you check out the 5 Buck a Day ebook. It’s an absolute steel and less than the cost of breakfast, and you can read it in a few days!

Here’s to inspiring you to take the control you KNOW you have within you, make the changes you want to see and realize the success for your online business.

Here are a few others that you may like...

Getting Started with a Website

Years ago, the internet was used primarily for big businesses. Today the world wide web is used in many homes and by all walks of life around the world. I liken having a webpage to having a business card. These days it is a must. In this post I’ll help you navigate getting started with a website.

What if you don’t have a website?
If you do not yet a have a website and are not ready to pay the fees to hire a professional web designer, it can seem like a giant leap to take. There are many options for someone just starting out. Yet, I encourage you you to proceed with caution. Here’s Why.

Here, I’ll lay out some of the basics that can help you get on your way to making the decisions toward getting stared with a website and setting it up.

There are several options to chose from when deciding to create a website. A current popular chose are website platforms that generally offer ‘free’ solutions. Companies such as Wiz, Weebly, and Homestead are a few examples. Remember, though, the free free hook is usually just a nibble.

The downside to using programs like these is that they can be somewhat limiting in what you can create. The templates are often standard and not easily customizable. What I have seen happen and have heard from clients time and time again is that once you get in there, after you have invested time and all that valuable energy one of the two following things inevitably happen. (you get the sharp end of the hook):

(1)Does this sound familiar to you? You almost done. You just want this one more thing. If it would just do that. But, THAT is an additional fee.

(2) You now have things the way you like them, and bam, you are paying monthly fees for years. Because, you don’t actually own your back-end files and you can’t simply pick up and move to a new location if you wish.

A very popular solution an my platform of choice is WordPress. WordPress is an open source application that is free to use. If you’re brand new to building a website, you’ll find the many pages of documents and forums helpful.

WordPress offers a great solution allowing a blog and a webpage in one location. Blogs are known for having better results with the search engines which in turn can increase traffic. But, that’s a lesson for an other day. Here’s a video I did explaining WordPress.

Here is a list of the things you may want to consider when you begin looking at possible options:

The monthly fees involved:
Are there any hidden fees?

The amount of technical knowledge necessary:
The best route to go is to be mindful or your current level, how much time you have to invest in learning and how soon you need to have your website up and functioning.

The limitations of the program:
It is very common for “newbies” to have thoughts of grander when dreaming of the site they want to have. I know, I did it too! But, those super highly functioning site are built by the developers and big budgets. It’s best to simply take one step at a time, and start with a basic site.

If you are brand new to this – get ready to have some fun! Learning technology, how to use it to enhance your business, and to share your art and passion can be an exciting process. For more advice on running your business both on and off the web,  check out my other posts.
