Writing a blog takes time, energy and a lot of patience. With the right tools like the following Infographic The 5 Ws to a Successful Blog, you’ll have a great head start:
Do you find yourself asking what are the 5 main components to blogging? I call it the 5 W’s To A Successful Blog:
1. Who do I blog to?
Find out who is your target audience. Who will benefit from your regular postings and fresh quality content? Having a blog will enable you to educate your visitors as well as add value to your business.
2. Why should I blog?
Do you have a passion about something that you know can benefit someone else and in return help your business grow? A blog will enable your customers and visitors to get to know you better and in turn will build trust and credibility. Your blog can become an active community attracting more visitors, subscribers and followers by helping you build relationships and business success. If you experience writer’s block, then outsource your work until you’re able to write on your own.
3. What do I write about?
Write about things that interest you and that you would like to share with others. You can post photos and write about what inspired that photograph. You can also post videos of your favorite song and write about what makes it so special and why you feel others may think the same. There are hundreds if not thousands of blogs that are unique in many ways. Think of the things that bring you joy and share them with others. Think outside the box!
4. When do I blog?
Personally, I blog twice a week. You may want to blog on a weekly or monthly basis, it’s all up to you. The goal is to remain consistent and provide quality content to your visitors so that you can create a long lasting readership for your blog.
5. Where do I host my blog?
You can use WordPress or Blogger to host your blog. Blogger is free and WordPress may carry a small fee. Use your own judgement when deciding what works best for your own blog. I use WordPress and Blogger. Bought my domain name at Namecheap and I host my blog with HostYuppie (soon to change).
