Being that blogging has become so popular in our author community, and the fact that I’ve received dozens of requests to teach more about blogging AND the fact that we had 58 comments on last week’s blog post, I thought you’d find it helpful if we began a column where we share blogging tips and strategies.
Today I’ll Share Two of My Favorite Blogging Tips:
Along with an invitation for you to share blogging tips of your own!
1. Blog on a Regular Basis
Blogging on a regular basis can open doors of opportunity and position you as a leader in your field. The easiest way to accomplish this is by scheduling a regular time each week, when you’ll write a post for your blog. You can write on a spur of the moment idea, something going on in the news – that would be of interest to your audience, or an article which can become part of an ongoing series on a specific topic.
2. Locate Blogs That Attract Your Target Audience
A way to multiply your reach is by connecting with other bloggers. Perform a Google search to look for blogs on topics that attract your audience. To do this, enter keywords into the Google search engine, followed by the word “blog. (Example: Book Marketing Blog.) Use keywords that your ideal audience would type into Google if they were searching for information on your topic area.
Once you’ve located blogs that attract your ideal audience, spend time exploring and commenting on blog posts. By posting insightful comments, answers or questions, in the comments section below a blog post, you’ll begin to engage with readers of that blog. This can lead to future guest blogging or speaking opportunities as well as increased book sales.
