Recently I have been focusing on the value of having a blog, which should be the hub of your online activities. In talking with people, visiting forums, I’ve found out that the reason some people do not understand the value of having a blog because in many cases they started a blog, but did not get traffic or visitors to their blog, so they became discouraged and gave up.
I found this video by Lisa Irby of http://2createawebsite.com that’s approximately 9 minutes, in which she shared some valuable pointers:
For your blog to be successful, some of the key points Lisa made that I took note of were:
- You need to treat your internet business seriously
- You need to provide something of value on your blog
- You need to be thoroughly engaged in you audience
- You need to solve actual problems
What are your thoughts? What other suggestions would you make for someone who’s struggling with their blog?
