Have you ever want to make a blog? Well it’s your lucky day. I am making a video series that will walk you through setting up a blog as simply as possible and making sure you do it right the first time.
The very first step is to simply get a domain and hosting.
It may also be helpful if you read the first couple chapters of my e-book which you can download for free on the right. Choosing a good domain name is important and there are a couple things you should consider before you register.
If you don’t want to download the ebook, here is a quick summary of things to keep in mind when choosing your domain.
- use the .com domain
- don’t use weird spellings or numbers that people could get confused
- keep in simple
- use your main keyword if possible
- make it unique so that it reflects you
Remember, a blog, like so many things, is something that will grow over time so be patient. Over the little while, you will be building, tweaking, adding content, and branding yourself and it will be worth it.
In the end, your blog can be a very powerful marketing tool if done correctly. It can help you grow your business on a global level. I have had people contact me from all over the world because they found my blog. And most of them said they felt like they already knew me because they had read my articles of watched my videos. At the very least, it’s a great way to connect with and make new friends!
The key to blogging and more specifically to make money blogging, is to grow your online presence so that you get found by more and more people in your specific niche.
So just follow the steps, in your own time, and create something to be proud of.
Just a little bit each day is all it takes. And when you consider the alternative of not making a blog… well, I don’t know. Blogging just seems to make sense.
Register your domain and hosting now and contact me if you need any help at all.
