It doesn’t matter what others say, you can’t deny the fact that you want to make your blog a full-time. Let me show you how you can make your blog, Shareworthy. Yes, everyone wants to have massive success when it comes to blogging. You want the followers, the readers, and the subscribers. But, the truth be told, most of us want to be recognized for our efforts and their work, there’s nothing wrong with that.
So how do you make it Shareworthy?
Blogging allows you to connect with your tribe, peers, and most importantly your clients. It gives you the opportunity to share your stories and the chance to promote your services to those who are interested in what you have to offer.
Write Killer Content
Your voice matters regardless of what others say, especially if you’re writing in your own unique voice. Killer content should be interesting and allow your readers to connect in a way that’s beneficial to them. So, if you’re new, the best thing you can do is to just start practicing because practice can move you a long way.
It should be content that gives people hope, tells a story, triggers emotions, gives clarity, and challenges the way most think. You have the power to create opportunity for yourself.
Another way of writing killer content is by doing research. You can always go to Twitter or Google trends to see what is currently trending in your industry.
You can also save your ideas on Word and add to your draft later while you’re still searching for more content, like I did with this post. I literally had to go back and save this post because I kept finding more information that would be very useful to the readers. And the majority of the time they do find it Shareworthy.
On another note about Word, what I like about it too is that it corrects your grammar so if you have problems with this, Word can seriously be a lifesaver after all. You can copy and paste to your WordPress without having to make too many changes and then all you have to do is add your beautiful photos to really captivate other readers.
For photos, I use Canva. This is a super easy system that anyone can use to create gorgeous Pinnable images. I also use Pexels when I need free stock photos. Other than that, you can always purchase affordable stock photos from Etsy and Creative Market.
Having a Community
Yes, I believe is an important one because your community is the one who gives you an extra hand and allows you to make a difference in their lives. It allows you to connect with them in a personal level and make genuine connections that can ultimately open new doors for you.
You can reach out to them by following them on Instagram and liking their photos. You can comment on their posts and let them know genuinely how much it resonated with you and how big of an impact it made for you. TELL THEM! They’ll remember you for connecting with them and most likely they will return the favor by commenting back.
And if you want more momentum you can always continue to comment on others blogs and build more relationships that way. Part of my success is due to commenting on other’s blogs.
“Consistency is key to growing your community and your blog”
Create a Strategy
I know we spoke about consistency but it is key to helping you grow your business/blog exponentially.
Share bits and pieces of your blog on Instagram. What I love about Instagram is that it’s a micro blog for most females. Especially now, with the rise of the influencers. This is a great place to share your knowledge and find ways to collaborate with other potential bloggers and help you shift to the next level.
You can also use Facebook and this may be one of the most important platforms of them all. Despite all the algorithms this is where you want to get your readers excited about the work you’re about to launch, you can ask them questions, etc. Engage with them and look at your analytics to see how you’re performing.
Another way is using the power of Pinterest because it’s still one of the largest traffic sources for many ladies. I mean who doesn’t jump in there for recipes, travel advice, fashion trends, etc.? Everyone does, so utilize it to stand out. One of my favorite things to do on Pinterest is to pin between 2pm and 4pm and I have come to realize that most people are just bored during that time of the day, so I get a lot of repins.
I spoke about creating content that tells a story, triggers emotions, gives clarity, and challenges the way most think.
Also, I spoke about having a community that allows you to connect with them in a personal level and allow you to make genuine connections that can ultimately open new doors for you.
And third, creating a strategy. This is so crucial because without a strategy; the time devoted in your blog can end up in a loss of time and money.
