Don’t wait for your inspiration to reveal itself to you – rather, start with something you like to do. Even if it’s not what’s making you money at the moment, it might someday, but it won’t ever make you money if you don’t even start. There are iterations to effort and the first ones are the least attractive. Try to fall in love as much as possible with the fact that you’re doing what you like to do which will feel inherently better than not doing it. That in itself is the passion.
SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is a strategy to get your website at the top of the list and to be easily seen when someone types in a specific topic in a search engine such as Google, Yahoo or Bing. Sound too technical? It's okay, I'm going to share some tips to help you optimize your content for search engines. Google has these little things called “spiders” that “crawl” your website looking for clues for what you are talking about on that page. If this is your first time thinking about SEO you may be like, “what is this woman talking about?!” but I promise, stick with me and it will make sense! Google has to have these clues that will help them identify what your pages contain the most relevant information, so there are strategic practices for where to include keywords for your post. SEO may seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! In this post, I am going to share some easy ways to optimize your blog posts for search engines so you can start getting more organic traffic! The following tips will help improve your SEO, but it’s also important that you continue to produce high-quality content because that is the single most important factor in getting good search engine traffic.
Two nights ago I was in bed reading & decided to take a Facebook break ( I keep these short, like 5 minutes because I don’t want to sit on social media for 3 hours ). AND THE MOST AMAZING ARTICLE I HAVE EVER READ POPPED UP ON MY FEED. It was titled, The Most Important Question of Your Life. HMMMMmmmmmmm. Firstly, how many articles have you seen on FB like this? 4357092864? A trillion? Way too many? Telling you to “wake up earlier, how to be more productive, how to have more willpower, etcetera.” I get it, me too. But this article was VERY, very different. Maybe you’ll entirely disagree with me…but maybe you won’t. The point is, this article was TOO good to NOT share. It really did contain one of the most important questions.
Now, I agree, I myself have a lot of work to do with my blog. But I can be sure with my social media strategies. As you read through the entire post, you'll find new, old as well as traditional methods of using social media to your benefit. Your blog deserves to reach out to the world. And, your voice needs to be heard. I swear by these tips and when I first started blogging, I have used them myself. Some of these tips are tricky, which is why I still have to work on them (rather, I've only grown my Instagram till now), but I promise you, you and your blog (or a startup even) will definitely benefit after applying these strategies daily. I know, plenty of bloggers think that social media is the easiest way to gain traffic for their blogs. The reality, however, is far from that. Yes, it's true that social media is a very effective way to promote your blog, but getting results isn’t exactly that easy. Many bloggers can attest to this. This is why some have toned down their efforts on social media. So, has looking into the so-called "loss and tiredness" stopped you from using at least one social network site to your benefit? Has this discouraged you from looking into social media marketing? If it has, I’d like to tell you that it shouldn’t.
