What would I have told myself if I started a blog today instead of three years ago?
Tip 1: A free blog is NOT an asset. It’s a liability. Buy a domain, get a proper host and then think of starting something.
Tip 2: You cannot be everyone for everything. Decide on who your target audience is, find what makes them tick, what information they’d like from you, and then go find a way to serve them.
Tip 3: Invest in yourself. It always comes back manifold. If you don’t educate yourself in how to run your blog like a business, it never will be. •••••••
Tip 4: The aesthetics don’t matter as much as the strategy does. If you have a solid promotion/marketing plan for your blog, you’ll do better than if you just spend hours creating a beautiful looking website. •••••••
Tip 5: Don’t invest all your eggs in one basket. Social media subscribers are great, but do you have another way of staying in touch? Focus on building a diversified business so that if one platform crashes overnight, you still have something to work with
Tip 6: Start today. Seriously, there has never been a better time to run an online business, and pretty much every online business needs a blog/content marketing channel of some kind. Get started now! 💪
