Who Should Blog and Why
You may be asking this exact question, Who Should Blog and why should someone start blogging?
Today I'm going to answer a couple of questions like who should blog, why you should start blogging and where can I start a blog.
I probably get asked this 3 or 4 times a week from people just starting out and even those who have been around for awhile.
So, I thought I would write a post explaining my thoughts on this subject of Who Should Blog!
There are a couple of questions that you have to ask yourself first to determine if starting a blog is something that makes sense for you.
Here Are a Few Questions You Should Answer Before Starting A Blog
- What's your purpose in blogging?
- How much time are you willing to invest in your blog?
- How much time are you willing to invest in yourself?
- Do you understand the function of your blog?
- Are you willing to put in the effort?
- Who is your target audience?
These are just a few of the questions you need to ask yourself, but in my opinion the most important questions.
So, Who Should Blog?
Here's my answer to that question. Anyone who wants to market online!
I know that sounds very simplistic, but it's true. Blogging is by far the most effective way to market online.
When you combine blogging with video marketing you will become unstoppable.
The Purpose of Blogging
The real purpose of starting a blog is one thing and one thing only, GATHER LEADS!
Are there many side effects to blogging? Absolutely, but your primary purpose is to gather people's information.
Here are a few of the side effects if done correctly:
- You will become an expert in your niche
- You will become known for your brand
- You will become an Authority
- You will have some fun
- You will start making money online
So, they answer to the question for you is, are you someone who needs leads for your business. If you really don't need any leads, customers or business partners then maybe you want to blog just for fun.
But, if you are passionate about what you have to offer the world and want to get into the online marketing arena then blogging might be exactly what you want and need.
The Cold Hard Truth About Starting a Blog
It's certainly not technically hard to start a blog I will tell you that.
The truth is most people who start their blog write an article every few weeks or so…maybe more, but not typically.
If you really want to explode into the blogging world then you need to commit to putting out valuable, consistent content on a daily basis.
If you are not willing to commit to that then maybe blogging is not the best method for online marketing for you.
I will tell you that whatever method you choose consistently putting out valuable content is a must.
Where Can I Start A Blog?
I really have only one answer for this and it's a self-hosted WordPress site. I have a post here that can help and my mentor and friend Ray Higdon who's an absolute authority has a course that I can tell you that if you are serious you MUST HAVE!
