1. Blogging

The first thing we do as coaches is that we encourage our clients to have their say by posting blogs regularly. Blogging is a great starting platform for you to learn and have a taste of online marketing. This is the reason why we want you to be authentic and use your expertise in your field to attract your ideal audience.  Blog about things your audience care about, and offer tips that they can apply to their personal and business life.

You may have come across people saying how easy it is to market online. The truth is that it’s not as easy as it may have actually sounded. Although the marketing strategies we are going to share with you will not wear out your wallet, however it does cost you your time. So allocating sufficient time to work on your business online presence is critical to you and your art & design practice

You are already aware that your website plays a major role as a business card these days, having all the necessary information about you, what you do and how people can contact you. You just can’t stop there and expect people to find you online. You still need to work hard to drive traffic to your site and the challenging steps are…how do you talk directly to your ideal audience and attract them to your site?

Have you ever wondered why your website has low incoming traffic or no traffic at all?

Have you also wondered why other artists’ websites drive huge traffic and achieve great readership and sales?

It doesn’t matter if you have the best website in the universe. If no one knew you existed then no one will find you online. The only time people do know you exist is when you start actively promoting your website regularly. This is how blog posting can help you get discovered for your website.  Blogs can help you with Google ranking and can get you to the top of the Google page. To build up organically you need to blog regularly, ideally you should post one blog per week.

I remember in my infancy stage of blogging I started to blog once a month and learnt and enjoyed the blogging process until I built my confidence with blogging. After three months I started to post 2 blogs per month, then 4 per month and now in my fourth year of blogging, I regularly post 5 posts per week. I now have over 500 blogs and have gained a readership of over ten thousand readers per month. What I have done here is to grow my online presence organically and made it search engine friendly for Google and other major search engines like Yahoo and Bing.

Before you start to blog, define your purpose. Why do you want to blog and what are the benefits for you and your audience? Ask yourself these questions:

  • What can I offer to an online audience?

 

  • What can I share?

 

  • Why should my online audience come to my website?

 

If you need help on how to start writing a successful blog, below are some of my previous posts that can help you  understand the process of posting a blog and what type of articles to write.

 

 

 

Next week part 2, we will talk about how guest posting can help your online presence.
