Blogs are a powerful platform, and when placed into good use, you can gain a lot from your efforts, whether you are doing it for financial or personal reasons. By writing valuable blog content, you will be on the right path to success.
Unfortunately, when you Google search for the keyword “blog/blogging,” you are bombarded with questions such as:
-How can I make money through my blog? (I get asked this a lot)
-How can I get thousands of visitors?
-How can I promote my services and products on my blog?
-How can I get rich through a blog?
Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with asking questions like this; no one wouldn’t mind earning an extra dollar while doing something they love (I know I wouldn’t). But, as much as these questions may make sense, they share a common flaw: they do not focus on the reader.
You need to concentrate on your audience’s needs before anything else!
You will be astonished by the results you get by making sure you focus your attention on providing valuable information on your blog, something which will relate to your prospects and clients, rather than making money your main focus.
Blog content is like seeds to blogging (like seeds are to a garden). If you are sensitive to the needs of your reader, you will build a healthy working relationship with them. You will come off as being more caring, which in turn will lead to trust, loyalty and growth in your fan base.
