Key Requirements

 

  • You don’t need to be Shakespeare and you can keep things simple – but you should be able to write in a genuine and engaging way to attract regular readers.

  • Imagination, creativity, passion and personality count for a lot – readers love it and respond to it.

  • You need to enjoy writing and creating content – as you need to post regularly to maintain and grow an audience.

  • You need to be willing to market yourself and your blog. Everybody has a voice and something to say – be confident, brave and yourself.

  • It’s relatively easy and inexpensive to set-up a blog these days. There are plenty of sites and guides to help you add in standard features. As you grow, especially if you want to customise your blog or add new features and plug-ins, you may need some technical support.  Using freelancers to help could be a good way to keep costs low if you know exactly what you want. Shop around and define clearly exactly what you want.

     

Champion Tips

 

  • It’s easy to create a blog, it’s harder to get traffic to it. So do something different. Find your own voice. Establish a clear and distinctive style and content to stand out from the crowd.

  • Think carefully about your target audience -then target it with the sort of content they would want to read. Find powerful and interesting topics. Find a website address that will really resonate with your target audience.

  • Add real value to this target audience. Look at the competition and produce content that is not readily available elsewhere and provides unique insights or is really useful for your target audience. Put yourself in their shoes. Would you find your blog useful? Would you get real value from it? Would you come back and read more? Would you tell your friends about it?

  • Provide regular new content to build up a regular audience. Pick up on topical trends and news to keep the blog fresh. There is no magic formula on frequency of blogs as it will depend on what your audience wants and quality rather than quantity. But whatever the frequency of posts always try and under promise and over deliver – if you say you are doing a weekly blog perhaps add a few extra articles a week – rather than forget a week. Plan ahead – you can schedule articles to publish when you want.

  • Think of your blog as a community – encourage comments and feedback and engage in online conversations. Make sure you include share buttons on posts to build up this community. Don’t be afraid of negative comments and feedback – learn from it.

  • Promote, promote, promote. Use social media, provide your content to other third parties and partners, swap links, try and drum up some PR, contribute to forums and other communities your target audience uses. Never stop promoting if you want to monetise your blog.

  • Be professional – don’t appear amateurish. Use a nice, clean, uncluttered design. Use a professional looking blog template (blog sites provide a huge range of templates). Make sure you read your blogs carefully – always proof read, check spelling and preview the look and feel and formatting before you publish.

  • As your audience grows think about starting a newsletter. Most of the main blogging sites will have e-mail and newsletter plug-ins that you can add to your site.

  • Write catchy and interesting headlines and use attractive and interesting pictures to attract your audience

  • Experiment with ways to monetise your blog. Investigate banners or more likely affiliate links from advertisers to monetise your blog. Think about sponsored links and posts to related services – but be careful not to compromise your content. Consider creating and adding premium products, service and guides that your audience subscribes to. And if you are really successful your blog can become a brand – with lots of potential money making spin-offs from books to branded goods.
