Blog Big or Go Home!


If you own a small business with products that rely heavily on e-commerce, maintaining a website and social media presence is more than a necessity.
As such, procuring web space for a blog is essential in order to make surfers aware of your product or service while driving traffic to your company's website.
However, simply establishing a blog and updating it with content is not enough.
Massive competition for clicks and views-user attention-is ubiquitous online, so it is wise to employ a variety of tactics and strategies to make a blog stand out and ultimately successful.

A successful blog requires more than a few posts advertising your product or service.
The blogging game involves good branding, smart marketing, great design, and content that is not corny, cliché, or overzealous.
Successful blogs make use of high quality images and pictures, a format or design that doesn't simply look like a stock template from many of the free blog services, grammatically correct content, a few (rather than many) URL links to a product or service or other posts in the blog.
Repeating a key word three or four times in a 500-word post will help make specific blog posts appear in search results, but blog owners should follow the rules and avoid misleading or deceptive marketing techniques to get attention.
Users will recognize this and often leave your blog-and business-in the dark.
Anything you can do to make the user stay on your blog or visit your website more quickly - the better. Informative content, interactive design, and eye-catching imagery are all things successful blogs strive for.
Advertising your blog offline also helps (i.e with a business card or flyer), but it works just as well when you include a link in an e-mail signature, on other message boards or blog comment sections, and on e-classifieds.
Including information about your blog on a social media site such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, or Reddit can also help increase traffic to your own personalized corner of the web.
Maintaining updated content is tremendously important.
While some blogs update daily, other sites recommend updating 3-4 times daily for a truly successful blog. However, it is important to avoid repetitive content, fluff content, and all spelling and grammatical errors.
Clarity, sharpness, creative, and original content will be rewarded with more traffic. Maintaining a consistent effort in updating your blog will eventually land you a valuable product online filled with strong and original content people will actually want to read.

This ultimately means more people are likely to get to know what you're offering and then go to your website to pay money for it.
As you become more experienced in the world of blogging, more advanced techniques can be utilized to sustain and increase traffic and popularity.
Some websites offer free tests and evaluation of how well a blog is employing a variety of these strategies, so it is often useful to find a free or inexpensive service that will offer a diagnostic test of a blog or website.
Beyond this, maintaining updates and a distinct character will significantly increase the success of a blog, no matter the topic or subject matter. If you build it (well), they will come!

Use Your Super Brain for Online Success


Ignite your Super Brain for Success
have been practicing Yoga for about 13 years now on a regular bases. Not just the physical aspects of Yoga called Hatha Yoga, but the other powerful tools that it provides as well. Yoga teaches the power of balancing Mind, Body and Spirit. The ancients of many traditions have known the power of the mind over the brain and physical body for thousands of years. This concept has been very present in Eastern spiritual traditions and yes even very early on in Western traditions as well. This is why you will find activities, exercises and tools in these traditions that help one to control their thoughts and take control of the mind. Being the controller instead of the controlled is what opens the gateway to health, creativity,imagination, exploration and the other amazing aspects of this grand universe.

I have been following Deepak Chopra for years. He is a medical doctor as well as a master spiritual teacher. I have found great benefit in his guided meditations and his books on spiritual growth and development. He has always talked about the power of thoughts. In congruence with yoga philosophy, thoughts are extremely powerful either helping or hindering our growth and development. To bring about physical,mental, emotional healing we must pay attention to what we are focusing our thoughts on. This plays a key role in what we create and bring into our life experience.
I became intrigued recently following Deepak Chopra on Facebook. He has been posting blurbs about his new book with Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi, Ph.D. " SUPER BRAIN". After reading several posts I knew I had to have a copy and I can tell you I am so glad I purchased it. I am excited about the way Science and Spirit have come together. Entirely too much information to get into here, but I can say they have dismantled many of the myths surrounding the brain and this my friends is good news for us. Bottom line is that the brain has an amazing ability to heal and repair and rejuvenate. This is something my favorite Bio Scientist, Stephen Cherniske has been telling us for years. He is the Chief Science Officer of Univera ( My Favorite Restorative Nutrition Company) and has been the mind behind the restorative products developed at Univera. So how can the brain do this? Feed the brain and body what they need to stay healthy, find a way to de-stress and find a passion/purpose in life. Granted, I am simplifying this tremendously, but this is exciting folks because there is now data to support what the great ancient practitioners of Yoga and other spiritual practices have known.
Why I find this powerful and can hardly contain myself while writing this is that the information can help us to be successful in our personal and professional lives. It can help us to tap into the creativity reserves and that imaginary space that moves to manifestation in our lives. You see we have a choice in how we use our brain.
Do you have a Super Brain or a Baseline Brain?
According to Deepak and Tanzi to build a "Super Brain" we need to use the gift nature has given us. Everyday we have the choice to be leader, inventor, teacher and user of the electrical and chemical activity going on in the brain. Genes do play a role, but the genes like the brain are dynamic in nature and not as set in stone as prior myths led us to believe.
WOW!!!!!Do you see the possibilities if we choose to wake up everyday and step into daily life as LEADER, INVENTOR, TEACHER, and USER of the brain. We have the opportunity to choose between the everyday brain, referred to in the Super Brain book as baseline brain, or this immensely powerful position of creator. They define Super Brain in the book as "a fully aware creator using the brain to maximum advantage".
Does that sound Empowering or what?
The book breaks down all of the areas listed above leader, inventor, teacher, and user into how a baseline brain looks as opposed to a Super Brain. Because I believe Empower Network is based on using a "Super Brain and is creating many Leaders I want to share that with you today. All of the 4 categories can impact our ability to be successful in life. Stay tuned for more about this in my future blogs.
Leader
Baseline Brain
I don't ask myself to behave very differently today than I did yesterday.
I am a creature of habit.
I don't stimulate my mind with new things very often.
I like familiarity. Its the most comfortable way to live.
If I'm being honest, there's boring repetition at home, work, and in my relationships.
Super Brain
I look upon every day as a new world.
I pay attention not to fall into bad habits, and if one sets in, I can break it fairly easy.
I like to improvise.
I abhor boredom, which to me means repetition.
I gravitate to new things in many areas of my life.
Taken from Super Brain written by Deepak Chopra, MD and Rudolph E. Tanzi, Ph.D
This explosion of scientific research that is validating what many of us on the spiritual path have known and have been trying to implement in our lives for years is not only validating but Empowering. Folks that want to poo poo the power of positive thinking as fluff and just touchy feely kind of stuff are now confronted with research that indicates otherwise. Folks that think their gene make up is the ultimate indicator of how they will experience life and is set in a predetermined course of our ancestors is debunked.
What choice are you going to make?
... baseline brain
SUPER BRAIN!!!!!!
I know what my choice is.
I know what choice David Wood and David Sharpe of Empower Network have made. Their training modules are pushing many of us outside of our comfort zones and asking us to use our brains and creative juices to make the life we want. They also teach the power of visualization, and positive thinking in the process of manifesting your true desires.
I feel incredibly blessed to be activating my Super Brain and embarking on this tremendous opportunity to expand my business in such a creative and expansive way.
Happy Supersizing your brain to success!

A Basic Introduction to Blogging


Web logging first appeared on the net in the mid-1990s. The term "web log" was initially coined refer to a server's log file and then expanded to include the meaning of online personal journaling. Later on, to avoid confusion, the word "blog" was adopted to refer to personal journaling. Today a blog is defined as an online publication where an author puts his or her personal thoughts and opinions from the most intimate to corporate ideas, concerns or events, in chronological order on the net.

Although, there are as many kinds of blogs on line as there are people, most of these will roughly fall into these kind of bloggers: Personal Bloggers (the original use of blogging), then there are the organizational and business Bloggers.
Organizational blogs are meant to facilitate communications between its internal and external audiences. It may also provide information for the external publics' use.
Business blogs promote products or services for profit. They also increase awareness about the company, as well as establish itself as an authority with customers, vendors, through publications that demonstrate their expertise in the market.
What are the kinds of contents that readers can find in a blog that's for distribution? The authors' ideas, opinions, expertise in his/her field of work, resumes, and home recipes, pictures, streaming audio or video clips, e-books, poetry, works, products, services and consultations.

Why have blogs become very popular compared to websites or email? Most websites are infrequently updated, while blogs have instant publishing tools which permit the author to regularly update & introduce new content. Although both have great content, websites are usually impersonal in informing their audience. While blogs allow the readers to leave their comments and feedback, to hold two-conversations with the author, who usually does the publishing and can immediately respond to his/her readers.
The blogs' abilities to reach and immediately react to an expanding mass of audience have made businesses and marketers use these as a strategic marketing tool. Additionally blogs are very efficient, cheap to use and can quickly distribute information.
However, before you decide to jump on the blogging bandwagon, take time to find out what are your objectives for creating your own blog. Is it a personal, organizational or business blog? This will help you decide on what your blog will contain, where you'd place it and what publishing tools you'll be using.

How to Cash In on Blogs


Over the past year or so, more and more webmasters have been creating their own blogs (web-logs). If you don't already know, a blog is sort of an online diary which is updated at regular intervals by the author(s), and can be viewed by the public.

Blogs can have a wide variety of topics, including personal thoughts, news, sports, politics, technology, or virtually anything else you can think of. And like any other website, a blog can be used to make money.
By far the most popular way make money with your blog is to put some sort of pay-per-click text ads on it. Some companies that will pay you for doing this are Google Adsense and BidClix [http://www.bidclix.com] (MSN and Yahoo plan to launch similar programs in the near future). Depending on the topic that you choose to write about, and the current pay-per-click market conditions, your ads might make anywhere from $0.05 to $1.00 per click.

In addition to generating direct income, creating a blog can be a great way to publicize your existing websites. Simply placing a link to your site at the top of your blog can potentially bring in a nice stream of targeted visitors.

How To Sell A Million Dollars Online Using Free Blogs Only


Considering what Blogs are continuing to do for many online entrepreneurs - and especially the prosperity they have brought, it is nor surprising that the popularity of blogs continues to skyrocket by the day.


The problem is that most people have not fully woken up to the facts and despite the fact that blogs are familiar to many, they hardly realize half their potential or what they can do for them and their online businesses.
The truth is that a free blog can easily help you generate a million dollars within a short period of time.
To start with most folks still hold on to the fact that a free site cannot do much for anybody. The thinking that has prevailed, which sounds reasonable enough is that a free site is not able to portray a good enough image to attract serious bucks and serious sales. This thinking is not only outdated but also seriously flawed. To start with blogs are best used as referral tools. The job a blog does best is to refer traffic to a site, with a fully registered domain name and hosted by a reliable web host where the transaction or sale will actually take place. Secondly blogs have a super new image as places where you can get such useful valuable free information that the fact that a blog is using a free host has increasingly become irrelevant.

I know people who not only make a good living from free blogs but are well on their way to clocking that magic figure of a million dollars in sales generated with the help of their free blogs. But don't take my word for it, just go to your favorite search engine and do a search, any search and see how many free blogs appear at the top of your list of search results. If you used popular search terms then this could mean hundreds of thousands of visitors every week for many blogs. That's blog power for you, that's free blog power for you.
The purpose of this article is to give you a plan of how to generate a million dollars online using only free blogs. So let's get on with it.

To Generate Serious Cash, Image is Critical
He real reason why sites like Amazon.com took off in a hurry and raked in such obscene amounts of cash, so quickly, can be traced back to their image-building early on.
In real life the quickest way a person gains a reputation is from what others have to say about them. Human nature does not suddenly change on the web, if anything it is greatly enhanced and magnified.
In the case of Amazon, the fact that hundreds and thousands of people started writing their personal reviews of books available at Amazon.com did one key image-building job. It portrayed the site as an extremely popular and therefore useful site to head to.

Many smart online entrepreneurs have used blogs to do exactly the same thing for their sites. While everybody has been busy trying to quickly build massive links to their blogs and sites, smart entrepreneurs with exactly the same objective in mind, have started the whole exercise in a different way. The idea is to start off trying to trigger comments on your blog or site. It is unlikely that somebody will say something about your site without creating a link to it - at the very least, they will mention it's address.
One of the effective methods that many businesses large and small are using is that of paying writers and bloggers to write content that mentions their sites. Apart from this creating valuable genuine links pointing to their site, done properly it can easily trigger off a massive number of comments (and links) to the client site. Getting writers to create blogs and mention and comment on your business favorably is not as expensive an undertaking as you may think.

Why Google Blog Search Matters to Your Business


According to Google, Google's Blog Search is "Google search technology focused on blogs". It includes search engine results specific to blogs not just in the Blogger.com community, but across the blogosphere at large.

What the Big Deal Is
A lot of people have probably heard about this extra version of search Google has added and are greeting it with a big yawn, particularly since it's still in Beta. So what is the big deal, anyway?
The big deal is that the top search engine in the world, which was already paying particular attention to blogs in regular search results, seems to make a subtle statement with the introduction of blog-specific searches.
Blogs are important enough to warrant their own special level of search, and not just as an advanced search option, but in their own search engine.
If search engines are paying attention to blogging that closely, you should be too -- if you want better search engine results.
Current fans of blogs will be able to search the freshest results so that they can see what is being discussed right now - information that is often as fresh as the news, and draws upon sources that the media-at-large either doesn't have ready access to, or interest in.
So to those with even the most obscure interests or hobbies, a blog search powered by a top search engine gives ready access to fresh information on any subject that someone can blog about.
And if a blog doesn't yet exist on these narrow themes? You can be the one to start the discussion.
Why It Matters to Your Business
Speaking of the media, this is likely to become one of the many tools that a journalist in the know would use in order to research a story, or to find out more information about a company, directly from the people who use its products or services.

Technorati, is at present, arguably a better tool, but it's just not as well known as the Google brand. If you're a power searcher, you already know what Technorati is. But the key thing to understand is that most consumers - even B2B consumers - aren't as deeply involved in the internet.
But even those folks know what Google is.
There's an even more obvious advantage to this specialized search.
Google Blog search has the unprecedented potential to bring the mainstream surfer into blogging, even more than Yahoo's RSS Headlines pioneered the start of making RSS mainstream about a year ago. Why?
While many of your clients will fall instantly in love with RSS, it's more fair to them to present its possibilities in a format that's easier for them to digest. It's not as hard to explain a blog - and if you can't you can simply tell them it's a more frequently updated part of your existing site.
When Google's Blog Search is brought more to the front in coming months, if your site gets into position to be visible when more of the internet population becomes blog-happy, then the traffic potential for your site may prove to be enormous.
The proper use of one RSS feed in one of my content management systems doubled my traffic, with most of the new users coming from Yahoo, this time last year. Another feed increased my daily traffic another 75%, and brought me additional return traffic as well.
At the time the margin between Yahoo and Google was wider than it is today -- so the potential increase from being in Google boggles the mind.

How to Get Listed
According to the Blog Search Help Page:
"If your blog publishes a site feed in any format and automatically pings an updating service (such as Weblogs.com), we should be able to find and list it. Also, we will soon be providing a form that you can use to manually add your blog to our index, in case we haven't picked it up automatically. Stay tuned for more information on this."
This means that if you're already blogging - and responsibly pinging, you're probably already listed.
If you haven't been blogging, you're in luck. This special brand of Google search is still in Beta, so if you get moving now, you still have enough time to start getting into position. And since the search currently seems to be focused on freshness and relevance, if you keep up the blogging once you start, and you keep your theme narrow, you could still dominate your niche.
Do It Today
The mantra for blogging before was that, proper blogging is a sure fire way to increase traffic, as well as build stronger ties to your end users or clients, not to mention that it is the simplest of the many implementations of RSS.
Now, with all three major search engines paying more attention to both RSS and Blogging, you can get spidered more frequently, get more of your pages indexed more deeply, and be included in more searches.
You have absolutely no time to waste - if you're not blogging already, you need to get started quickly. Many webmasters are hesitating because they haven't been able to find a blog system that fits well with their site, or find the most popular tools too sophisticated for their needs.
There are literally dozens of free resources to help you decide between the standard systems that were originally built for the personal blogger, and the more robust solutions that are aimed at the medium-sized or corporate company - but that's another article.
Whatever you chose, the important thing is to get started blogging today. You'll be missing out on targeted traffic from the most dominant search engine, from the most sophisticated surfers today, and sooner than you know it, the mainstream web.

6 Ways Bloggers Make Money Online


Blogging has become an internet marketing necessity especially with businesses who use social media to connect with clients. For smaller online entrepreneurs, blogging can also be a good way to make money online. There are many opportunities out there for bloggers including:

  1. Niche Sites - This type of site makes money online by intensely focusing on a particular product or service. One example of this kind of niche site is a review blog. Bloggers can highlight the assets of a particular product or service using a strong call-to-action to purchase through their partnership with that company. Niche sites typically don't have a lot of blog posts but the content is high quality, keyword rich and geared towards catching customers at the "about to buy" phase in the sales cycle.

  2. PPC Advertising - Pay-per-Click (PPC) advertising is all around and can be a good source of income. Google AdSense (the most popular) or AdBrite PPC rely on getting a lot of clicks on advertisements placed throughout the blog site. Making money online with PPC can be difficult if you don't have a lot of traffic to your site as publishers are paid a certain amount of cents per click.

  3. Affiliate Marketing While related to niche site blogging, affiliate marketing can apply to any site. Publishers who like a product or a products potential can sign up for that affiliate program and can place custom links, banners or ads on almost any site. They can place the affiliate link on their blog, in forums, in their email signatures... the more places, the better the chances. There are many affiliate marketing aggregators online including Clickbank, Commission Junction, Shareasale, just to make a few

  4. Royalties There is an insatiable appetite for information products and it is for that reason many bloggers create their own products. They create a guide, a manual, and package it with graphics, affiliate links and then sell it. Customers purchase and securely download the product and the author collects royalties from the sale. The investment for this option is very time intensive but as authors, bloggers have more control over the products and can create multiple products over time which generate significant passive income.

  5. Webinars - For those who have created a system, they can make money online by teaching people how to use their system. This can be a lucrative means on online income but it does require that there is demand for what you have to teach as well as a means of conveying the information. There can be upfront costs associated with software, online facilities, even advertising but if the customers demand it, webinars can be an excellent source of blogger income

  6. Freelance Projects - There are plenty of projects from people who could care less about how it's done, they just want it done. Many bloggers make money online as freelance copywriters, site developers, social media professionals and because they get to work from home, they work inexpensively which makes them attractive to clients on a budget. Sites such as Elance, ODesk, Fiverr have many projects ready for the right candidate.
For bloggers who are focused on making money online the right mixture of perseverance, versatility, creativity and patience are necessary. Being able to generate multiple sources of income can help because success doesn't happen overnight despite slick promises. If you're a blogger who's ready, then roll up your sleeves and get to work.

3 Biggest Pitfalls To Making Money With A Home Based Business


The reality is that there are a lot of internet business opportunity options available to anyone these days, yet so many people don't know where to start. And once they do, they tends to fall prey to the same 3 silent business killers every time.
I've been working from home online for almost 5 years now and even though I offered a standard or typical internet business opportunity I still struggled online until I discovered theses 3 biggest pitfalls to making money with a home based business.

1) Not having a good quality product:
You need a quality product that you can offer to other people that you feel good about, that is worth the price being charged, and is something that you personally own, enjoy or believe in. Even the best work at home opportunity won't do you any good if the product itself is not worth the price they're asking.
My rule of thumb when it comes to making money from home using the internet is to only offer a product that I personally use and own. That gives me a lot of confidence because if I'm willing to pay for the product, I know that there are plenty of others who are too.
2) Not having a system that does the telling and selling:
You don't have a system that allows you to leverage your time, ability, or skills. Let's face it, most people looking for an inexpensive work at home business opportunity are brand new to the internet and don't realize that building a successful home based online business takes some skill, time, effort, energy and money (it doesn't have to cost much at all but having a few tools and an inexpensive front end product costing under $50 is really helpful).

Having an automated system for your inexpensive internet business opportunity makes a lot of sense because you can run it 24/7, in any country or timezone all while giving you the greatest opportunity to make money even when you are not actively working on your business.
3) No commitment: One of the deadliest things a new online marketer can make is jumping from one thing to the next because they didn't get rich in their first 2 weeks. Lack of commitment will kill anything in life, including the best work at home business opportunity.
The good news is that these three problems are easily solved as long as you can jump into a system that's proven to convert prospects into customers, and that has the quality of information you need to learn some new skills and develop a proper mindset about money, success and entrepreneurship.

Training In MLM - Three Reasons Why People Fail


Are you wondering why some people fail in network marketing? Stick around, because in this training in MLM, I will be sharing with you three reasons why people fail in network marketing. By the end of this article, I hope you will be aware of these three mistakes that people make, and I hope you will not make these mistakes yourself. So sit back, as I begin my sharing.

Reason 1: They Lack Patience
As far as network marketing is concerned, you are not going to become rich overnight. Some people think, "if I have x number of downlines, I will become a millionaire!" Get real, and get rid of the idea that network marketing is a get-rich-quick scheme, because it is not. Network marketing is a real business which you need to take time to build over time. Yes, it can be a lucrative business model which can bring you big money, but you need the patience to build your network and train the people under you. In essence, if you want to succeed, you need to develop patience. Period.
Reason 2: They Lack Commitment

Another reason why people fail is because they lack the commitment. You see, they may treat network marketing as some kind of hobby. You know, the type of stuff that you do only when you feel like doing. If they do not have the mood to work on their network marketing business, they just chuck it aside, like putting a half-bitten bar of chocolate back in the refrigerator. Well, I got news for you. If you treat it like a hobby, you will get hobby results (in most cases, that means no success). However, if you treat it like a real business, with all the passions of an entrepreneur, or someone who really wants to succeed, then that passion will motivate you to success. If you are really committed, you also ought to invest yourself by going for training in MLM regularly.

Reason 3: They Lack Direction
Do you know how to achieve success? Do you have a game plan? If you don't, you probably will not succeed. You see, if you fail too plan, you plan to fail. Have you ever been on a hiking trip without a map or a compass? Did you end up feeling lost? The same concept applies here. If you do not have a clear sense of direction, you probably will not succeed, even if you religiously attend classes or go for training in MLM. Goals are important for any business.
I hope you have a better idea of what mistakes to avoid. I also hope you have benefitted from this training in MLM.

Discover The Power Of Blogging


The dark circles under his eyes are evidence that he has been pecking away at the keyboard again. Night after night he sits, mesmerized by the computer screen surfing forum after forum filling the blank spaces with his comments and opinions about senseless issues, political debates, religious matters, business strategies and shopping options. All the while his marriage is deteriorating, his children are growing up and away, his business is wavering on the brink of bankruptcy, spiritual matters are being neglected, all to which he is oblivious.
One day he happens upon an internet forum about blogging. "What in the world is blogging?" he wonders.
Suddenly he becomes enthralled with a new mission. He has to get to the bottom of this. With all the time he has spent on the internet communicating with people throughout the world, he has never heard of blogging. He wants to learn everything there is to know about it...

Blogging is a relatively new phenomenon that is truly undefined due to the fact that it is not yet what it will become. Currently weblogs teeter on the edges of interactive journalism vs. personal archiving and information sharing. Different bloggers have varying purposes and goals. Some aim to record their thoughts, some to share resources and information and some to tell stories. Blogging has also been used as a tool for educating readers and for providing customer service and communications as well as serving as a tool for self-expression.
With Google's introduction of the AdSense content-targeted advertising program, you can even generate some revenue from your blog as you get paid per click for Google Ads accessed from your blog. Don't create a blog on the premise that you're going to get rich from advertising payments or you may be sorely disappointed. Rather, view the ad program as an added bonus for the time spent filling your blog with useful content, or as getting paid a little for doing something you enjoy.
The best way to get started blogging is just to jump in and get your feet wet. Decide what you want to accomplish through your blog. Is it a tool for getting things off your chest? Sharing your thoughts and feelings? Providing information? Tracking events?
Reading through various blogs will provide you with some ideas for your blogs purpose and for developing your writing style.
Find a blogging medium that you are comfortable with. There are some options out there for free blogs and there are some paid services that are very reasonable, some for commercial and some for non-commercial use.
Probably the quickest and easiest way to start your own blog is to use a hosted service like Blogger - http://www.blogger.com.. Getting started with Blogger is a three step process that you can take care of right now. You simply create an account, name your blog and choose a template and you'll be ready to get started making blog entries. Once you get comfortable with the basic process of blogging, be sure to visit the "Help" section of the Blogger website to learn more about advanced uses and blogging options.

Do You Want to Know Why Blogging is so Popular?


If you haven't heard of blogging, you are probably living under a rock. There are many reasons why blogging is so popular these days, but the biggest reason is probably that blogging is so simple, and so accessible to everyone. Everybody wants to be heard - no matter who they are or what they think. We all have thoughts and opinions - and we are finally able to express those thoughts and opinions!

In the past, only people who understood the in's and out's of creating a website were able to get their thoughts, opinions, feelings, or interests in print. Now, anyone with access to a computer with an Internet connection can be set up and blogging in five minutes flat. If you don't have a computer in your home, you can visit your public library and blog. You can visit your friend's house and blog. You can go to an Internet café and blog. Students even blog from their computer classes during school hours! Everybody can blog, and that is why blogging is so popular today.
Blogging does not require a website. A domain name is not required. You do not need to know how to set up a webpage. All you need to know is how to type - and if you can even do that with two fingers - 'search and peck style' - you can blog. It really is that simple. If you want to set up a blog, just visit a site like Blogger at http://www.blogger.com and set up a free account. It takes less than five minutes.

The wide variety of uses of a blog is another reason why blogging is so popular. If you want to keep a personal journal, you can do so with a blog. If you want to set up a way to keep family members in touch, a blog provides the answer. If you need to keep employees up-to-date on projects or company news, again a blog can provide you with a very simple, very fast way to do it. Visit Blogger and surf around and take a look at the things that people blog about! Every topic that you can imagine is there!
Blogging has become what newsgroups used to be - only instead of being accessible only through a newsreader or email blogs are accessible with any web browser, on any computer system that has an Internet connection - no membership required, and no fees to pay - unless you choose a blogging service that is fee based.
People who were unknown and unheard yesterday have a huge following today. People are interested in other people's thoughts and opinions - and even in the day-to-day events in their lives. As a global society, blogs offer us yet another method for sharing and exchanging information - no matter what the topic is.
Individuals have even learned to make money with their blogs. You can sell ad space if your blog is popular. You can also sign up with some of the blog advertising networks to find advertisers. Google AdSense is a popular way to profit from blogs. Another option is to promote affiliate products and services that are related to the content of your blogs. Some people have even figured out how to earn a living with their blogs! Is it any wonder why blogging is so popular?

Blog - The New Business Meeting


A very hot Internet driven business initiative right now is a company blog; politicians to consultants, homebased business to Fortune 500 corporations, all are involved in blogging. You may not have a very clear picture of what a blog is and how it can be a useful communications tool for businesses.

Developed from web-based technology, blogs (short for web log) encourage second party communication from a specific audience on specific topics. Many people think of blogs as opinion forums but there are valid business applications as well. Whether you use it to communicate internally to your own employees or externally to your clients, blogs establish a different arena for sharing information and soliciting responses. Company blogs are an emerging trend and are predicted to be a normal communication method within just a few years.
Our company started a blog earlier this year as another tool for external communication. By posting New Projects we show what we're working on; by posting questions and asking for response we hope to learn about issues relevant to our industry that concern clients and the services they find valuable. Maybe that seems like self-promotion, but we think it offers existing clients and potential clients the opportunity to talk with us in a completely neutral setting.

Used for internal communication, a blog gives you another forum to offer the company perspective on a broad range of topics and solicit feedback from your associates. A blog is not a chat room and it isn't another method to take a survey. It can encourage thoughtful response, new ideas or brainstorming among collaborative teams. Say, for instance, that your IT team has an idea for a new software application but they have no idea if it is saleable. The folks that know what new products your clients might buy are in Sales. We all know that Sales hates meetings because that's time not spent selling (and making money). What if IT could post their new idea on the company website via a blog that is accessible to employees only and Sales could comment, ask questions, brainstorm and offer possible client uses for the new software. Feedback from lots of sources...meeting free collaboration.
Believe it or not, there are over 46 million blogs on the Internet covering every conceivable subject. More than 5000 companies maintain their own blog for internal and/or external audiences. Whatever your interest or occupation, I guarantee there are hundreds maybe thousands of blogs that apply to you. The easiest way to better understand blogs is to actually start blogging. Go to an Internet search engine, like Google, and enter a subject that interests you. Then just surf through a few sites and see what others are saying. You'll be amazed!

Blog Marketing: Where to Start


Maybe you have just read something about how Blogs can help you establish a web presence, but you are not sure how to start. Here is a guide and a few tips to get you started and increase your Internet traffic. Blogs can help any business, but they require research, maintenance, and creative writing skills.
Firstly, decide if a Blog is right for you by visiting Blogs. Go to Blogger, then use the search Blogs function. When you arrive at Blog Search beta, enter keywords related to your particular business niche. You must have passion about your specific niche in order to keep posting about it.

A tour of Blogs will open your mind to the number of different conversations about your niche and the variety of approaches to Blogs. You will notice that some Blogs have many posts about a specific subject. These "Bloggers" are excited about their subject and that is why they attract traffic. Some Blogs run like an open diary, and at this time, most don't have anything to do with business or marketing.

The constant posting and reciprocal linking between Blogs are just two of many reasons why Blogs are successful "traffic magnets." If you are in business, you may elect to have a Blog similar to those on Blogger or you might have a web host that already has this feature with your web site package. The Blog attached to a business website is really more of a "Corporate Blog" concept, but you can use this approach as a tool to draw much more traffic to your current web site.
You should discuss your options with all interested parties, your web master, and web designer. You don't have to have an outside web designer or web master in order to start a Blog, but if you already have people in place, why not get an informed opinion.

Let us assume that you have chosen a path at this point. Gather any past articles that you have written about your business, modify them for keyword content, and start posting. The more often you post, the better it will be, and posting daily is optimum.
When you post articles, include the URL of your Blog. You might want to add a signature similar to this.
FREE (Your Business Niche) Report.
FREE (Your Business Niche) Newsletter.
Visit: (Your Blog)
FREE CONTENT: If you are a web master, blogger, e-zine, or Internet publisher, and can use quality content, please feel free to use my blog entries (articles) - Please be sure to reprint each article, as is, and please include the resources in the above paragraph. Thank you, (Your Name).
Everytime someone posts one of your articles with your resource box, that's one more link back to your Blog. If your articles or Blog entries are perceived as valuable, you are creating more traffic for yourself. Most of the web sites that post your articles will be from the same or a related niche. These become valuable links because their readers are already interested in your article topics.

You should also include your Blog URL at the bottom of all your Emails as a standard part of your signature with your name, address, telephone number, and other contact information. If you have room on your business card and stationary, please make room for your Blog URL.
Lastly, a content rich Blog is a great compliment to any Email marketing campaign. Unfortunately, reaching interested prospects and customers by Email is not what it used to be. Over aggressive spam filters throw out a good percentage of legitimate Email, but an interesting Blog will keep your customers and prospects coming back for more.

Blogging Schmogging: 6 Ways to Pump Up Your Posting Prowess


t's the most important part of the Internet today. It's a highly controversial issue in the area of free speech. It's the reason anybody in the world - businessperson, grad student, church pastor, pilot or teenager - can have a voice.
It's a blog. And if you don't know what that word means, prepare to be enlightened. Let's start with the facts. The following list will give you a crash course on blogging basics:

 A blog is a journal that is available on the web, short for the word "weblog"
 Blogs generally represent the personality of an individual or website
 A blog is a frequent, chronological publication of personal thoughts and Web links
 The activity of updating a blog is "blogging," someone who keeps a blog is a "blogger," and all the blogs in the world represent the "blogosphere"
 Blogs are typically updated daily using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain the blog
 A blog is often a mixture of what is happening in a person's life and what is happening on the Web, a kind of hybrid diary/guide site, although there are as many unique types of blogs as there are people
 People maintained blogs long before the term was coined, but the trend gained momentum with the introduction of automated published systems, most notably Blogger at blogger.com
 The content and purposes of blogs varies greatly--from links and commentary about other web sites, to news about a company/person/idea, to diaries, photos, poetry, mini-essays, project updates, even fiction."
Ok. Now that you're up to speed on the term, let's explore six ways to pump up your posting prowess.
TIP #1: Consistency
Technorati is THE authority on what's going on in the world of blogs. According to their website, they currently track 20.8 million blogs. Sadly, many of them lack consistency. And too many people create a blog simply for the sake of creating a blog. In other words, they're not updated regularly. The blogger posts a dozen or so posts initially, and then forgets all about it.
Therein lies the first key point: if you're going to blog, blog often. After all, it IS a marketing tool. You wouldn't run one newspaper ad on a random Tuesday and never advertise again. You'd do it consistently. So at the least, post more than twice a week.
TIP #2: Audience
If you post on a blog, you must talk directly to the reader. Keep it personal. Ask questions. Write conversationally. And don't be afraid to change your writing style to a more informal nature. Your readers will feel more comfortable posting their own comments after each of your posts. After all, that's the whole point of a blog: to create community. To create fans. And if you want to do that effectively, you must do so on a one-on-one basis.
TIP #3: Theme
All posts on your blog need to maintain consistency with your theme. So, before you even begin a blog, ask yourself the following question: If everybody who read my blog did exactly what I said, what would their world look like? Once you've answered that question, you'll have a foundation - a school of thought - to which all of your future blog posts will adhere.
Most blogs will have sections in which you can both name and explain what your blog is about. So, once you've uncovered your theme, you can easily come up with a pithy title and concise explanation. This will assure that every person who comes to your blog will know exactly what it's about as soon as they arrive.
TIP #4: Resource
Blogs aren't just for ranting, complaining, telling stores, asking questions and facilitating discussion. They're also resources. And each of your posts should contain at least one link to another blog or website that connects with your idea. This not only gives value to the reader, but creates internetworking opportunities as well. Because every time you connect your blog with someone else's, it's an opportunity to meet a fellow blogger with whom you can develop a mutually valuable relationship.
TIP #5: Visual
We live in a visual culture. People need stimulation. And when it comes to blogs, readers expect to see pictures, graphics, diagrams and other visuals to help accentuate your points. Use pictures from your own library, download free images that connect with your post, or even use picture links from other blogs. Whatever you do, just be sure to have something visual other than your words. After all, newspapers wouldn't sell very well without images, would they?
TIP #6: Sales
Many bloggers use their posts to help drive sales for their products or services which are consistent with the theme of the blog. The key to doing so successfully is accessibility and subtlety. So, make your products visible to your readers at all times. Scroll images of your items down one side of the page with links to your website. But keep the selling to a minimum. Readers of your blog don't want to be bombarded with ads. The average person already is exposed to 3000 ads a day, according to a 2003 UCLA study! So don't worry - informational, interesting and creative posts will do the selling for you.
With these six tips, you should have no trouble pumping up your posting prowess. So, start a blog today. And start reading other blogs today too. Because bloggers didn't get voted "Time Magazine's People of the Year 2004" for nothing!
