Business Blogging As An Opportunity To Build Your Business Online

Sep 3, 2008
If you are not already blogging to build your online business, you are missing out on a great opportunity. Creating a blog for your business is the best way to connect with others who are interested in learning more about your topic. I like to think of my blog as my home on the internet. It is a place where I share my knowledge and expertise in the areas of eBook writing, blogging, technology, social media, and article writing. When someone comes to my blog, whether it is through one of my articles, a comment from a forum, or from Facebook or Twitter, they will know very quickly if this is where they will find the information they need. Here are some ways to get your blog ready quickly, so that you will attract the prospects and clients you want for your online business.

Choose a blogging platform that is easy for you to use. The best choices are Typepad or a hosted WordPress blog. With these two blogging services you own your blog and have complete control over it. If you are not very technical and want great customer service and support, Typepad is the best blogging platform for you.

Post to your blog regularly. This should be at least three times a week, and more in the beginning. You may have to review a book once a week, answer reader's questions on another day, or have other ways to keep a schedule to post more to your blog. Remember that you can always ask people to write a guest post or use articles from the article directories that would be of interest to your readers. Keep those articles intact, leaving the author's name and resource box information exactly the way they were written.

Focus on one topic for your blog. If you write about a variety of things you will never find an audience that sticks with you. People can spot a confusing blog the second they land on it. Become an expert on your topic and share your expertise with your readers.

Read and comment on other people's blogs. Many people neglect this part of the process and miss out on the relationship building that is so important online. Search for other blogs that are related to your topic and begin to build a relationship with the blog owner and writer.

Follow these steps and you will have a blog that people will want to read regularly. Become the go-to person in your field and your blog will help you to create a profitable online business.
