Building a successful online business with blogging is not that easy. There will be a lot of problems that you will face along the way. People who are successful with their blogging business are the ones who successfully managed to tackle those problems and finally establish their blogging business.
Here are 5 big problems you’ll face when trying to make money blogging:
Being Sluggish In Producing New Content
Blogging is the best online jobs & everybody knows that in blogging, it’s important to produce new content daily. So you have to give top priority to content production for your blog if you’re really serious about making money blogging. Each post that you publish everyday will help your blog attract more traffic. Unfortunately, many people don’t give high priority in content production for their blog.
Difficulty In Gaining Recognition In Your Niche
Blogging is about building community around your niche. So you have to be able to gain recognition in your niche with this online job. If your blog isn’t recognized within your niche, then you will have very little chance to make money from it. You need to build good relationship with other blogs within your niche, especially those popular blogs that have similar content to your blog. If you actively build good relationship with them, you’ll be able to gain recognition in your niche.
Finding Suitable Monetization Option
You have to use different monetization strategies for different blogs. The problem is that finding such ideal monetization method will require many trials and errors. And you have to actively test different monetization method for your blog until you’ve found the one that can bring maximum income for you. However, many bloggers only rely on one monetization method without giving some thoughts to try another. If you believe that your blog is not earning optimally, then it’s the time for you to explore other monetization options available.
Difficulty In Persuading Your Readers To Follow Your Recommendation
If you’re promoting affiliate products on your blog, you have to make sure that you’re able to persuade your readers to follow your recommendation.
The key here is persuasion.
Your success in this online job will be determined by how effective your persuasion is. Most of your blog readers are coming to your blog to learn from you. In other words, they’re seeking for information. Therefore, in order to change their mindset of learning into the mindset of buying, you need to be able to apply your persuasion strategically in your blog.
Lack Of Traffic
Lastly, and most importantly, you have to overcome the problem of lack of traffic. If you’re unable to attract traffic into your blog, then all your efforts in blogging will be in vain. Therefore, you’ve to give special emphasize on attracting traffic to your blog. The best way is to hire some professionals to do the traffic building tasks, such as SEO, link-building, guest posting etc.
Let’s face it. This is not going to be one of those articles where they say, “Put in quality articles“ or “Put in pictures”. I won’t waste your time with silly stuff like that. Here’s the truth: You’ve got to write about what you’re tribe is interested in. That’s what makes a blog interesting. It’s something I want to read. You cannot be interesting to the whole world. You can be fascinating to your whole tribe. Just write what the tribe is looking for. Keep it sweet. Keep it simple.
Here’s your in-depth how-to: Look at what your tribe is talking about on social media. Look at what they’re talking about on their own blogs and specifically write posts that address that. It’s called “eavesdropping”. Yes, you eavesdrop on your tribe and you write about what they already want to know about. The social media is like having a party line to everybody in town. So, take a moment. Look up your e-mail list. Look up their domains. Look at their social media. Go to their websites. See what they’re doing and address exactly what they want to know and what they’re talking about. And you’ll be fascinating. And you’ll get a lot of traffic.
Go ahead and post below what you’re doing to write more fascinating blog posts or what you think about what I said.
What’s your style? Comment below!
Many people want to get involved in social media and are concerned that it will take up all of their time. I have a simple solution that allows you to appear online and engaged and yet, really only use a few hours a week to do this. Especially if you only have one brand you are pushing.
Right now I am in production for the television show “The Wright Place TV Show”, Solve It Sisters – web series, Wright Place radio and A Crowd Funded Life radio show.
My three brands, Wright Place TV, Solve it Sisters and A Crowd Funded Life all have their own social media foot print. Then there is my personal footprint. Because of the brands I am handling, I spend a little more time that what I talk about in this article but not much more. You simply can’t be online all day and get any revenue generating work done
The accounts you need
My friend Dr. Rachna Jain keeps me up to date what what’s what. I used to say you only need 3 social media, I have since then updated my numbers.
I highly recommend you have these accounts (they only take minutes to open)
Opening these accounts takes 30 minutes
This is a task that can be delegated
- Twitter (my personal favorite)
- Facebook (everyone lives here)
- Linked in
- Google Plus
- Rebel Mouse
Rebel mouse will automatically add your activity to it, there is no need to post there once it’s set up. I send people to https://www.rebelmouse.com/drwright and they can see everything I am doing on each show. They can follow and subscribe.
Sign up for a Hootsuite.com account
Add all your social media to it (at the time of this writing, Rebel Mouse is not an option)
Use Hootsuite to pre plan your social media posts. It posts to all accounts if you want. That’s why even on 5-hour flight to the east coast; I can have a post going out without bothering to get online. Spend 30 minutes a week and you are done.
