Have you ever noticed that all the people who have a presence and success online all have one thing in common? Well, if you’re paying close attention you know that one thing is a self-branded blog.
Here’s a tip… watch and copy what successful people do! It’s o.k. to be a copycat, as long as you copy the right cat!
I want to share with you the importance of blogging for your success online. You are online to brand yourself, not your company or your business. Remember that people join people; not businesses. So in order for people to join you, they must know you, like you and trust you. The quickest way to accomplish this is to have a self-branded blog, invite people to join your blog, and then build relationships with those people.
Blogging is a must if you intend on having any level of real success online today. Now, don’t take my word for it, look around the internet; all of the six and seven-figure earners who are online today have their own self-branded blog. You may be saying, well I don’t know where to start, or it’s too hard or I can’t do it. Well, you can do it, and it’s not as hard as you think. Take the first step by getting a domain name, then take a second step by visiting WordPress.org for your self-hosted blog. It’s the first step that is the hardest on any journey, but you must decide to get started. So get started blogging, and create your own audience of people who will know you, like you, trust you; and therefore will want to do business with you, and buy from you.
Understand that your blog serves as your central hub that houses all of your content to be disseminated to various outlets on the internet like social media, video hosting sites, article directories and more. The content hitting those outlets then directs that traffic back to your blog. Once you understand the flow of the system, you will have created the life you desire.
