How to Launch Your Blog part 1 of 4
Welcome to your blog launch party! Yes a party…you decided to “cash in on your passion” and start a blog!
Well I have some good news and a few good tips to help you set up your blog the right way for maximum exposure and impact on the social scene.
Lets take this in phases.
Watch the quick video for the concept and then we’ll start putting together a simple game plan.
Alignment…what does that mean and how does that look to you?
Alignment on social sites – setting up your top social sites. I highly recommend setting up Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, and Pinterest. There are a lot of other sites, but if you’re brand new…setting these sites is primary as they will be your social media foundation.
Plus this is where people will be sharing your content to. So getting these up and running now…prior to publishing content is a good thing.
Alignment with other bloggers – If you know what you’re going to be blogging about it’s very easy to find other bloggers in your same niche / category. You can search your new social sites using the same keywords and phrases that you’ll be talking about on your blog.
This will be an ongoing thing. So don’t worry about having to find 10 bloggers on each site that you can align with right away. However once you do find people you want to follow build those lists.
Alignment with your mission - Your mission if you chose to accept it is to figure out what you want to blog about. A lot of people are figuring out that they can actually make money from their blog by learning how to Cash in on their Passion. Yes you can actually make money by blogging about what you like…something that you’re interested in.
Most new bloggers talk about just making money online. And that’s cool…but it’s a serious niche to try and crack into if you’re brand new. And my passion is helping people find their voice and bring it to the world.
My first taste of success online was due to the tribe concept I founded with 4 other people. If it wasn’t for that I’d still be floundering online to this day.
So…homework for today. If you have a blog…leave a link below with your well thought out comment. Tell the community what your blog is all about. Yep that’s right…drop your blog below! If you don’t a blog get one here.
