Even though I have had personal blogs for many years, I have been officially blogging since 2003. So in retrospect over the cost of the last quarter, you can imagine my shock when I realized that the total cost of my business was relatively low. 19%. What has saved me so much money? Surprisingly, blogging.
How do you save money with your blog? It’s very simple, so I’ll be brief.
Haha search engine optimization without paying a lot of money
If you want Yahoo, MSN, and Google to pay attention to your, blog.
It doesn’t have to be a new site, just add a directory to your existing site and start blogging. Most blog software solutions are cheap or free.
And you can get basic blog information online for free (really, sometimes typing your question on Google will do.) By the people who have done it. For under $ 100, you can create a small library of tips and blog secrets, written by successful business bloggers.
Instead of buying links, find one-way links to blog search engines and indexes, and get your RSS feed content displayed on other sites.
Linking is a perfect way to get search engine attention and generate organic traffic. Some people get links through trading; others by inserting their links at the end of freely distributed articles. Others pay to be listed, or connected.
In all of these cases, some kind of trade occurs, money, free content, or a link back.
When you blog, you will find many search engines and indexes ready to list you for free. For the most part you will not need a back link – you will find a one-way link from a popular search engine site, usually using text of your choice.
If you have 90 or more free, official links back to your site worth your time, then keep your blog going.
Not only that, if you update regularly, other sites may want to display your RSS feeds on their sites. To encourage them to do so, post a link to your page with instructions on how to do so. Since I put one in front of my site, various feeds from my main site have come from very unexpected places.
A cheap way to read to your audience.
As your blog becomes more popular, you may begin to discover that on any given day, you have a different category representing the hopes and customers of your site. If you have any questions for them, you can ask.
Of course, you can post a survey link in your newsletter or on your site, but these do not include as much as the ability of your audience to comment. They will be comments, and you must respond by asking them to expand or clarify. The conversation goes on and before you know it, a bond is formed, a bond that is much stronger than what happens in a one-way conversation.
The cheapest (and fastest) way to start an app or authority site.
Five years ago, if you wanted to start an official site, your best bet was to build a website with a special directory in its context. Three years ago, it was best to start a forum with a portion of the app attached to it. Last year, your top bet was a content management system powered by the feed, especially as many parts of the content management systems began to have related content feeds. (I have almost 12 feeds on each of my PHP-Nuke websites, though they do not work well with Google Tap.)
Now, if you want to be an expert, you want to start a blog.
If you blog regularly, you have a database of information that will encourage traffic return. You need a collection of links to articles, tools, and websites. You can always write your planning ideas for each of these things, as well as factual-based analysis of news and events that can help your audience make better decisions.
As blogging software grows you can split your links into categories, and organize your links alphabetically, and you have the ability to browse multiple sources and leave follow-up links to other sites, you can send your readers a ring of related, updated and retrospective information. to you.
Spend less money on advertising as your blogsite becomes you can more popular
I can’t promise you that you will never spend another red cent on advertising costs. However, the amount of free advertising you get by having a link to your blog or RSS feed is included in the list of search engines and lists, and appearances in feed courses should not be underestimated.
You will probably still want to do four ads when your new ebook or software release is released for the first time. But you may not need to buy a lot of advertising or buy regularly.
Then there is the fact that most republished newsletters on RSS feeds are widely accessible. I have found it worth the extra money to appear in both versions – ask for details of your favorite publisher. In publications that allow for this, it is usually a 20% increase.
Save money by keeping guests
You’ve probably heard a thousand times that it’s easier to sell an existing client over and over than to get a new one. So how do you get that visitor to come back, and maybe buy it again?
The constant flow of new information on the work of a particular article is enough to keep people buying a daily newspaper, subscribing to a magazine or watching a television series.
Regular updates can work the same way on your site.
As bloggers named People of the Year by Time magazine last year, if you did not publish in 2005, you would be left in the dust by some of the sites in your industry. It does not have to be extra time, and the time it takes is done with the money you can save.
