10 Sure-Fire Steps To Build A Profitable Micro-Blog written by Guest Blogger on February 15, 2012
How can you make money online with micro niche blogs? In this informative post, I’ve laid out 10 step process needed to create a profitable micro blog, monetize and cash in. If you’re like most bloggers, you’re fed up with generic blogging and want to get focus this year. If you continue doing the same thing that’s made you slightly unhappy, the year would pass by and you won’t realize it. Let’s dive in and build a profitable micro blog.
1 – Select a Rabid Market The first step in your micro niche blogging is the market selection. But you shouldn’t go for any market with hidden promises. You need to determine that yourself. What is the future of your market and how hot is it. All these are questions that need to be answered. When selecting a rabid market, take note of recent developments like Google algorithm tweaks – you’re building a micro-blog that targets search engine users. Keeping abreast of search news and developments are paramount to your success.
2 – Eliminate Niche Silos Inside this silo, there are several ideas popping up from nowhere. These are all distractions on your way to profitable blogging. You might be tempted to switch or digress a little from your main focus. But don’t give in, focus on this particular niche and scale it through. When you continue to write about a particular topic, you’ll become a master at it. If your niche is gardening, discipline yourself to stick to gardening and don’t digress to herbs. It would mar your ranking and overall search performance.
3 – Plan Your Attack Now that you’ve eliminated those ugly niche silos, it’s time to plan your attack. How do you plan to attack search engines? Have you worked out your marketing arithmetic and what did you come up with? A lot of niche marketers fail because they neglect this important aspect of their business. Don’t write any article yet, unless you’ve the master-plan of what you want achieved. Off course, planning involves keyword research and picking up those juicy long tail keywords. So, plan your approach today, and tomorrow will deliver the best results for your niche blogging efforts.
4 – Study Your Market Properly Proper market research is crucial. If your market is rabid (popular and hot), you need to take it a bit deeper by studying it. When we talk about market, we’re referring to the “people” who care for your products and what you’ve to say. These people have clouded minds as a result of infomercials and TV advertisements they receive on daily basis. If you don’t study their behavior, you won’t hit the nail right on spot. Studies would help you to know how they make buying decisions, and what motivates them to visit your blog at midnight while others are sleeping.
5 – Outsource Unethical Gigs In building a profitable micro blog, you can’t handle every aspect of it – you need capable hands to speed up the process. It’s good to outsource. A lot of online entrepreneurs are busy, there is no time to write articles and create videos to market your products. Outsource this project to some other person who is ready and able to deliver on time, without any hinges on the road. As you outsource, you’ll focus on your core priorities like niche research and metric testing.
6 – Write Relevant Content Is there anything like quality content? Yes, when your articles, posts and marketing campaigns are relevant to your audience, specific and helpful, it’s a quality content. The truth is, nothing is new on the face of the earth. Virtually every article you would ever think of has been written by more savvy writers. We’re all rewriting what has been written. But the angle you write from is what makes the difference. Feed your audience with relevant content and they’ll regard it as qualitative and timely.
7 – Find A Hot Converting Product You need a hot converting product to succeed with micro-niche blogging. Why is this so? It’s because, your target prospects are already presold; they already know what they are looking for. Your role as a niche marketer isn’t selling, you’re to pre-sell them the more. Point out those strong benefits and use it as a hook to lure them into the checkout page. If you’re selling an e-book, make sure the sales page is well written. Ask yourself, does this page motivate me to buy? If it doesn’t, drop such product and find another.
8 – Build Anchor Text Backlinks Links are the currency of the web. If you’ve plenty of them, you may as well write your own paycheck. But all links are not equal; you need quality links that are well-orchestrated for your key terms. When building links to your micro blogs, ensure you use the primary keywords and phrases as an anchor text. This way, you would be rewarded for spoon-feeding search engine spider and giving the right direction. After the recent Google updates, the number of links you’ve doesn’t matter anymore. What counts is the quality and relevancy of such links. Now, you know better!
9 – Build an Email List Micro niche blogging would produce much success than you ever predicted – it all begins when you think out the box. 85% of niche bloggers are not building email list, they just want to sell to that stranger, but often times it’s exceptionally difficult to achieve that. List building works when you have all the pros and cons nailed. This way, you’ll strategically envelope your success and prepare to adapt when ugly times come. I’ve used this strategy to on my coupon blog where I feature free gneil discount codes and prweb coupon code. It proven to work for you as well. Since you’re targeting search engines users with your keyword-rich and relevant content pages, it means your visitors are targeted and ready to buy. When you capture their email and name (optional), you’ll make more money easily via follow-up. Try it and see how it works.
10 – Promote Your Micro Blog
