If you’re looking to get into an online blog business, you may be wondering what the overall process looks like in creating a profitable, successful blog business.
After you’ve done all your technical homework (setting up your business name, website, emails etc), you’ll jump right into step one.
Step #1: Bring in traffic from authority websites
Your goal is to take the people who are hanging out on the internet in certain places and redirect them to your website. (Google AdWords can be one of your options for increasing traffic)
Step #2: Add value to your visitors
The best way to attract and keep your customers is to add value to their life in some way. This could be through text, visual, video or any other media. Whatever it is, you want to be helpful to your customer.
Step #3: Collect the asset
This really means you need to connect with your audience. By collecting their name/email-address, you’ll be able to add more value to them by sending them content and also use the stream to show what you can offer to them. (Aweber and ConvertKit are both great tools for managing your email lists)
Step #4: Create an offer for a product or service
This is where you can pitch your promotion, product, service or content that is for sale. You’ve built up the relationship, so now you can feel confident that what you’re offering is something they will find valuable.
Step #5: Rinse and repeat
Following the same steps above, over and over again. Once you’ve added enough value to your customer, they’ll be instant-customers for you and pay for whatever product you offer. As your customers grow, you should also be growing in your business and your offerings.
