You have to look at your internet blog as your own online hub. What is so powerful about having an internet blog is it can potentially piece together any other content you might have out on the internet.
Those other pieces of content on the internet could be articles,videos, and social media platforms like twitter and Facebook.
But one thing that you have to understand is that those articles, videos, and social media platforms are not the asset, your internet blog is!
The great thing about a blog is you have complete control. So you’re probably wondering how to set one up. All you have to do is head on over to godaddy, get your own domain name and get some hosting from either godaddy or hostgator. The great thing about a blog is you can supply fresh content to it, and the search engines are big fans of blogs as well.
The reason for a blog is to get people to optin to your list
If you look to the right of this blog post you’ll notice I have an optin form that was designed to capture the name and email address of people who may have happened to land on my blog, and who might have expressed an interest in what I had to offer for exchange for their contact info. Of course those are what we call leads, we all know that leads are the name of the game. Make sure the content you put on your blog is yours and it that it is relevant and up-to-date. Its a good way to standout from the crowd.
It’s important that you understand what a list is for and that you use it properly and that you know the ins and outs of how to monetize that list. If you do that you’ll have an online asset that will pay you for years to come.
