How to Get Started with Your First Blog

How to Get Started with Your First Blog

“If you are still on the sidelines have haven’t gotten started with your first blog yet, there is no better time than now. In this post I am going to show you how dead simple it is to get started.

A blog of your own can be used for anything, such as blogging about hobbies, sports, being an online journal, a fun way to connect with friends, spread awareness about your organization or business, or even starting an online business or ecommerce site.

First off, you have a couple of options when it comes to blogging and how you want to run your site.

The best way is to get setup with your own domain name, hosting and installing wordpress on your server. This might seem complicated to another just starting out, but it’s fairly simple. I can actually do this for you if you are interested.

Here are the benefits to getting your own site/domain/hosting.

*Full customization
*You own all of your content
*Having a fancy and direct domain name
*Unlimited scalability for your blog
*Powerful servers to handle your traffic
*Not held accountable under other company terms

If you don’t want to spend any money on a blog, you can also set one up for free using WordPress or Blogger. The benefits to using free services such as these two are:

*Extremely easy to setup
*No monthly costs
*Easy access to one click themes and plugins
*Powerful networks running your site

While both have their benefits, each come with their own problems as well.

Personally I would go with the domain/hosting/wordpress setup as this will give you a lot more options and will allow you to scale over time. The costs for this are roughly $10 a year for a domain name and $10 a month for hosting. WordPress is free to download and install”

Global Domains International, Inc. is the worldwide domain name registry for all .ws (Dot WS) domain names. Our product is an incredible $10 per month package that includes your own domain name, hosting accounts, and up to ten email accounts, plus an easy-to-use online web site builder that will allow you to get a professional looking web site on the web as quickly as possible.

Level One Network - The Next Level Of Online Marketing

Level One Network – The Next Level Of Online Marketing

Whether your a blogger, looking to become a blogger or simply want to write about and boost your business. This Level One Network review should help you decide if it is indeed for you. I have been with Level One Network for a little while now and I will be sharing my good and bad first hand experiences with the system as a newbie to the blogging world. Currently I am using Level One Network to promote and drive traffic to a completely separate business and product I am involved in. By following the easy step by step video training that Level One Network’s developer has provided. I have achieved the greatest success when it comes to getting exposure and I have just gotten started.

Level One Network is a new, already made Blogging website that you can just sign in and start blogging from. I find the system to be truly one of a kind when it comes to blogging networks. Dan Miller, the creator and founder of Level One Network has made this system for you and I to be able to have a leveled playing ground when it comes to promoting our business or product and getting exposure. In this review we will go over some key points surrounding Level One Network so you can make that sound decision on if it’s right for you and/or your business, but first I want to go over what actual brought me searching for another network prior to making the best decision my money has ever made.

Level One Network

I had recently gotten started with blogging online when I joined Empower Network, just 3 weeks before joining Level One Network. Now I’m not gonna bad mouth Empower Network and yes I still use it today, however I am not a affiliate and I do not actively promote it in anyway, shape form or fashion. Never have, and I seriously doubt if I ever will now that I have found a better foundation with Level One Network. It’s not that it’s not a good Blogging Website to use, I just personally found it to be difficult to use because of the lack of training the most and even more difficult to get the results I was looking for because of it. The training was all talk, literally! Not even a runner up for the best blog sites in my opinion. You see, when you buy something, the main thing you want it to do is exactly what it says it will do. I mean, who buys a car and becomes ok with it if it’s not running the way it is suppose to be running? That’s what getting Empower Network was to me. I just didn’t find any information on the lower end that could help me or that would influence me to purchase anything else they had to offer. That’s like buying a car and quickly taking it to a mechanic to get it running. I don’t know about you but when I buy a car, I want it to be ready to do what I paid for it to do. Even if it takes a little work from me in learning how to operate it. And that is just what Level One Network is doing for me…it simply works!

Level ONe Network Blogging System

With the videos I watched on Empower Network all I got was talk, talk and more talk. The Dave’s seem to be talking me into just buying more of their stuff when they had not really taught me how to handle what I had just paid for. Now if your a seasoned vet and you already know this stuff then that may be fine and dandy but what about the new guy? What about the newbie that wants to get started blogging for money? You’ll find yourself stuck like Chuck in my opinion with Empower Network. Again, Empower Network is great and I know I seem like I’m bashing it but all I’m saying is that it didn’t work for me. What seems like bashing is really the disappointment I feel. I still however use Empower Network to help boost other things I am doing in my business but I doubt it be for very long. I think most people stick with it because it has a high Alexa ranking but what good is that doing for you and your business when you can’t be found?

I find it fascinating that with Level One Network you get main page exposure. That’s right, every time you blog you get main page exposure on Level One Network’s main home page. That is simply amazing. Your not hiding behind the owner’s main page. Everyone on the Network shares in the same exposure. Take a look at the main page and I’m sure you’ll agree that no other system gives you this. Unlike my experience with Empower Network, Level One Network has all the training that makes me feel like a newbie King. Dan Miller actually takes the time and go over everything step by step to where my grandmother could understand how to use this system. But, of course I don’t think it’s her thing, lol.

But you really want to know about Level One Network and how to make money blogging still, right? So let’s get back to it. I’m gonna break it all down with what I know so far and keep in mind I’m not even HALF way through all the training that Dan has set-up. That is how powerful Level One Network is. No hype, no fluff, just pure results. Click Here

The Most Affordable Business Online

Level One Network – Blogging System
A True Network Blogging System.
Imagine, your very own personal blogging website that is tied directly with the network giving you main page exposure every single time you blog. And if that wasn’t enough, your blogs are in the main page network RSS feed. Nothing like feeding a hungry search engine with content. I really think Google has a crush on LevelOne Network but I won’t speculate, lol. Did I mention your content is strategically categorized for the search engines? Hello…

Level One Network – Training System
Weekly Live Training Seminars.
With LevelOne Network you also get World class training from individuals, as well as the developer of the network Dan Miller himself. When I tell you Dan has gone above and beyond to make this training so that even the newest of newbies could easily grasp it and get top rank I mean just that and I am a living testimony. I was lucky even enough to be a part of the #1 and growing team on LevelOne Network, Team Freedom. More about this private group of professionals in a bit.

Level One Network – Marketing System
Professional Marketing System.
You get a full marketing system including multiple landing pages for you to choose from that include integration with Aweber, GetResponse and GVO to assist you in building your list and capturing your referrals. Now I give props where props are do and I am honest about what I say about this system however I can tell you that the one thing I didn’t like that could be a little better is the landing pages. That being said, the developer is making more that will be revealed shortly, however that does not take away from it’s power as a network.

Level One Network – Advertising System
Inclusion In Our National Ads.
The developer of Level One Network has a national ad program helping each affiliate receive traffic and referrals right from the very start. Understand that we are not talking about a mere month or two but an entire year you get automatic inclusion. I personally received my 1st sign up just by blogging. I don’t know about you but it’s exciting to get something like a sign up from Level One Network that you were not even looking for.

In my own personal opinion I have found there to be only one blogging website that has really taught me what is blogging. Level One Network has worked for me from day 1 when I started using it. I have seen and am seeing nothing but amazing results. I am also a part of the #1 team in Level One Network which is Team Freedom. No matter what questions I have had there was ALWAYS someone there with the right answer. My excitement for being a part of this group is as equal as my excitement for joining Level 1 Network. By joining us today you will also get to be a part of Level One Networks #1 support group Team Freedom. Tell them Teary Eyezs sent you… Oh, and one last important detail before I forget: 100% Commissions Paid Directly Into Your Bank Account, or Paid Weekly By Check! – Your Choice… #Cheers :) Welcome To The Next Level of Online Marketing… The Most Affordable Business Online – Level One Network

How a Blog Can Turn You into an Industry Authority

How a Blog Can Turn You into an Industry Authority

“When done well, a long-term blogging strategy can build your authority on a given topic. But when done really well, blogging can make you THE authority on your industry.

No matter how much content you publish, you’ll never be viewed as an authority if you keep your industry knowledge to yourself and only use your blog to promote your brand. Authority bloggers know that blogging is about so much more than trying to sell. Here are 4 ways you can use your blog to establish yourself as an industry authority.

1. Prove Your Knowledge

Without evidence of your expertise, your blog will automatically feel less authoritative. Just about every blog niche on the Internet is full of “gurus” and “ninjas” who claim to be experts in a given topic but don’t have the real world experience to justify their claims. Don’t let this turn you off from calling yourself an expert — by being the real deal, you’re already heads and shoulders above many other blogs.

But don’t shove your credentials down people’s throats. Do make sure to detail your experience and accolades in your About page. You’ll also want to weave your experiences and success stories throughout your blog content. Share case studies, anecdotes and testimonials whenever they’re relevant to the content you’re writing.

Being an expert also means knowing when you don’t have all of the answers. Be sure to back up your content with sources other than yourself. Strengthen your content’s credibility by linking to articles, quoting experts and referencing studies.

2. Become a Curation Machine

This may seem counter-intuitive, but the thought leadership on your blog doesn’t always need to come from you. In addition to creating original content, curating content relevant to your business can help you become a one-stop destination for industry news and insights. Curating content will force you to read more about your industry, which will in turn help build up your knowledge base.

Here are a few ways to get other people’s content working for you:

*Feature a weekly link round up of the best articles you’ve read about the industry. For example, online marketing blogger Kristi Hines does a post every Friday with links to the best marketing content she has found that week.

*Create “best of” resource lists that are collections of other people’s content.

*Piggy back off of opinion pieces. Write blog posts in response to what other industry influencers are saying.
Just be sure to always give credit where credit is due — never rip off someone’s idea or content without properly linking back to them.

3. Build Relationships with Influential Blogs

In the offline world, who you know is often more important than what you know. This is also somewhat true online.

Forming relationships with other bloggers is key for getting your blog in front of the right audiences and establishing yourself as part of your industry’s “in crowd.” As such, investing the time into giving back to other bloggers should be a prominent part of your blog strategy.

Here are just a couple of ways to connect with other bloggers in your niche:

*Comment on other industry blogs. Leave valuable comments that add more to the discussion (not just another “great post!” comment). This is often how blogger relationships begin. You can also expect to see some traffic come from the sites you leave comments on.

*Invite influencers in your niche to write for your blog. Not only does this let you take a break from posting, but they’ll most likely urge their readers to read their post on your blog.

*Start writing for other blogs. Pick a handful of blogs that have your target audience, and reach out about guest posting (just make sure to do this and not this when you’re reaching out to other blogs!).

*Link to other blogs in your posts. When you mention another blog or industry personality in your content, reach out to them via social media or email with a link to the published content. They’ll appreciate the mention/link and most likely share the post.

Many of these tactics are mutually beneficial, too. Once a blog’s audience sees they have a relationship with you, they’ll be likely to check out your blog and potentially become new readers.

4. Get Noticed by the Press

Whether you are looking to get in front of a national or local audience, blogging can position you as a reliable go-to source on all things related to your niche. Press mentions can not only bring in a huge number of leads, but also quickly position you as a leading authority on a topic.

Many times, press mentions have a snowball effect. You will find the same reporters coming back to you again and you’ll also have other reporters approach you once they see your name in a newspaper, magazine or on the news.

When a current event happens related to your field, reporters scout out sources within the industry. Not only does an industry blog help reporters find you through search, but it also builds your credibility in their eyes. It’s possible journalists will find you just through search, but you’ll also want to make it easy for reporters to find you:

*Join Help A Reporter Out (HARO), where you can connect with reporters looking for sources in your industry.

*Make your LinkedIn profile visible to the public and keep your credentials updated.

*Use Twitter to track journalists looking for sources using the #urgharo hashtag.

Keep in mind blog content can also act as resource material, since reporters can easily reference or link back to relevant posts you have published. You’ll want to be sure to regularly update your content so it can remain an evergreen resource.

Of course, the last way to build authority is to always keep your audience at the front of your mind. Being extremely generous with your knowledge is the #1 way to establish trust with your audience, so never worry about “giving away too much” for free.

What are some ways you’ve built your blog’s authority? Let us know in the comments below.”

What Are The Best Blog Sites

Featured

What Are The Best Blog Sites“Whether you are familiar with the internet or not, chances are that you might have heard about blogs somewhere or the other. So, what is blogging? Well, to start off with a clear definition without getting into the depths of things, a blog is a space where you can voice your opinion and write about anything you want to write about. In simpler terms, it is similar to writing a diary; however, while a diary is quite personal, a blog is open to everyone on the internet. Hence, a blog is a space where you share your ideas and opinions with the world.

While blogging started off as more of a casual platform where people let their creativity out, recent times have showed us that blogging is a much more serious business. With large number of potential viewers making unparalleled exposure on the internet, many leading companies have bought off successful blogs to enhance their own marketing efforts. On the other hand, some companies are also willing to pay successful bloggers a hefty amount to write for them so that they gain exposure. Moreover, businesses such as the Level One Network also teach how individuals can make the best blog sites and how they can make a good amount of income from blogging.

Moreover, in the quest of blogging for money themselves, a lot of prospective bloggers these days ask questions such as “How to make money blogging”. Although, as mentioned earlier about the Level One Network which is a platform where individuals can acquire easy guidelines on how to make money blogging, it is a well known fact that no blogger can hope to be successful without first gaining access to the best blog sites. The best blog sites can not only propel your blog to the next level, but they can also ensure welfare of your blog in terms of readership.”

What Is Blogging

Featured

what is blogging“A huge number of people around the world run and manage blogs. Yet, not all of these are successful. Be it a business blog or an individually owned blog, the basics of what makes a quality blog are the same for everyone.

First off, a blog has to contain quality content that people can genuinely find useful. The content should be original and updated regularly as well. Secondly, the more a blogger has expert knowledge on a topic, the higher the chances of the blog being successful. There are hundreds of people out there looking for answers on specific problems. If your blog can provide the right kind of answers, then visitor traffic is almost guaranteed. Lastly, allowing for feedback on your blog is one of the most important aspects of blogging too. These blogging tips are more useful for businesses as they use blogs to connect with their customers. Hence, the higher the amount of feedback is, the higher the number of people you are likely to be connected with.

In addition, to make a blog successful, you do not need to ask questions such as ‘what is blogging’ or ‘what is blogging all about’. It is only the right kind of guidance and knowledge that is required, all of which can easily be acquired by companies such as the Level One Network when learning what is blogging or how to start a blog.”

How Should I Spend Money on My Blog?

How Should I Spend Money on My Blog?“Over the last few years, blogging has gone from “that kinda weird thing that Internet people do” to mainstream. My mother still uses a pre-paid cell phone, has never been on Facebook, and had dial-up Internet up until about a year ago. And she has a blog.
One of the biggest reasons that blogging is so attractive is that it is a way to enjoy your passion that requires little start-up cash. Heck, it costs more to go to a baseball game with your family than it does to start a blog. You can even get started with absolutely no money.
As your traffic starts to grow, however, you might want to spend a little money on your blog. Recently, we posted an infographic featuring bloggers who made millions online. You can bet your britches that these people have invested money into their blogs! Now, yesterday, I wrote a bit about the advantages of paid targeted traffic, but if you’re a beginner, there are other things you should start paying for first.”

How To Use Sliding Underlines On Blogger And WordPress

How To Use Sliding Underlines On Blogger And WordPress“As someone constantly looking at design and ways to add to the design of blogs often it’s the little things that amuse me.This post is definitely an example of that, something as simple as an underline sliding out under a heading or for that matter any text most would see mundane but I see as ‘Cool’.So lets look at the effect, first up it’s a very easy effect to use on your blog no code knowledge is needed.

Basically on any text on your blog you can make a sliding underline appear on hover (when you place the cursor over it).For me this effect works best on headings and links as these are the text visitors to your blog will hover on most.In future posts I may show how to add the effect to all links on your blog or maybe to Labels/Tags (Like the previous Bump effect for Blogger labels we published in 2011).”
