The quickest way to making a full-time living online is simply this one thing.
Build a platform of viewers by blogging or by getting content spread out all over the internet where people want to read your blog plus your emails. Be everywhere your readers are!
Use that platform to brand yourself and have your audience hungry for what you have to say since it is something they need desperately. For example, if you are a Mom or a Dad that just earnestly desires to stay at home with your newborn child, you would give your eye-teeth for a way to do that. Blogging and building a subscriber list by having a “squeeze page” that asks for their email list, is one great example.
Here’s the rub: If you build a blog, they will come. Nope! That’s a myth.
Truth: If you build a blog that is worth reading, they will come. Nope! That’s a myth.
Will the Real Truth please stand up? Build a blog that is worth reading after a long day, that is full of images and valuable, inspiring, get in your face, get your teeth in it kind of a blog that is so good that it is spread all over the internet by people sharing it on social media. BINGO!
So, build a blog that offers the kind of content you would want to read late night, when you finally get home, after supper and want to spend a few moments skimming over blog posts and/or emails that show you how you can sleep until 9:00 am with no alarm set, and wake up and do only those activities that show off your creativity and passion.
Then, you have to share that content so that people actually see what you’ve slaved to write. How do you do that? In this video, I talk about my favorite 4 Valuable Ways to Get Traffic to Your Blog and build a subscriber list as a long-term asset for life:
- Pinterest – share with the app called Tailwind.
- Youtube – make a quick free video using screencast-o-matic.com and upload it to Youtube and tag it with keywords and a title that make you want to stop and watch it.
- Instagram – a powerful social site where you can upload images and put a tag in there for people to come back to your website where you will have a form pop-up to ask for their email.
- Facebook – people make friends, get new subscribers and actually make new income simply by posting on their own private profile or creating a Fanpage with valuable, juicy content that people subscribe to so that every time you make a post in your Facebook Fanpage, they get an email to read it.
Here’s an example of how I put this into action today, by making a free Youtube video and sharing it with the SHARE buttons below my video.
I use these other free resources:
Pixabay.com for free images that have creative common images that you can share.
Screencast-o-matic.com to record free videos
Masspinger.com for link juice.
There’s four more, really smashing good reasons you should start your own blog today. If you do decide to take up blogging, you will need a domain name and a “hosting” company that will hold the files to your blog and publish all of your information inside your blog to the worldwide web.
Here’s a link that will get you started with your own blog name for free. This company that offers really good support, if you have any questions.
The autoresponder I use that offers a Free Trial is GetResponse that you can find here. This is the way I send daily emails to my subscribers to talk to them, and offer products that I think will help them with my affiliate links.
Now, it’s your turn to share your content with the world. Go get ’em Tiger!
