It’s not enough to simply have a blog, your blog needs to have some sort of impact. With the millions of blogs on the internet, and some that are always trying to attract the same market as you, you want to stand out so that you can attract readers, subscribers and ultimately profits.

Here are a few tips to make sure your blog is the best it can be:

  • Tip #1 – Be personable. Each blog post is a unique chance to connect with your audience. Your goal is to be you while you make them laugh, make them cry, inspire them and motivate them. In addition to your blog content, your blog design also impacts the connection you make. Include photos of yourself, audio and video blog posts and even the colors, layout and images you choose will help create a personality.
  • Tip #2  Make your blog easy to read. By adopting user friendly formatting, fonts and type size. Images, short paragraphs and subheadings also make your content much easier to read.
  • Tip #3  Provide quality content. While your blog posts can be entertaining they must also provide value, educate, and enlighten.
  • Tip #4  Mix it up. Content does not only have to be presented in written format. Use audio, video and print content to keep your blog active and interesting.
  • Tip #5  Learn to utilize useful widgets and plug-ins. For example, if you participate on Twitter or Facebook you can include a widget that prompts blog readers to  follow you or one that posts your Twitter conversations on the side bar of your blog.
  • Tip #6  Market your blog. Use blog directories, social networking, SEO, and other marketing tactics to drive traffic to your blog and build readership.
  • Tip #7  Encourage comments. A blog that is active is a well read blog. To incite participation and comments, ask questions, acknowledge comments and encourage discussion.

One last tip is to blog consistently. That does not mean daily but you need to have a schedule; even if it is one day a week! This is vital to a successful blog. Utilize PLR, guest bloggers and your own content to keep the posts consistent and up to date.
