It has now been a little over a month since I first posted the Super Easy Blog Video. So far, the results have been awesome! At last count, there have been over a dozen new blogs that have been started by people all around the world who saw the video and took action.
Congrats to you all! I hope that in the very near future, this number will be in the thousands!!! Please help me by sharing this site with your friends or anyone who you think could benefit from having their own blog. You can use the share links at the top or bottom of this post.
If you have seen the video but haven’t started your blog yet, what are you waiting for? It only takes 15 minutes to set up a blog… You can do this.
Super Easy Blog Updates
I am working on putting together a page where I can put links and examples of all of the blogs that have been created using the super easy blog method, so stay tuned and check back often. If you would like for your blog to be included on this page, let me know so that we can show it off to the world. This is a great way for you to start a following of new fans and gain some backlinks at the same time. (Don’t worry… I will explain backlinks in a video really soon)
Also, as promised when I started this site, I will be working on some more advanced videos so that you can take your blog to the next level. These videos will cover more advanced techniques, but in a non-technical way. I am open to suggestions and ideas, so make sure to leave comments below.
Finally, don’t forget to join our VIP list (red box on the right →) to be the first to know when new videos are posted or new sites are profiled.
Thanks again for all of the cool feedback. And remember: Keep Blogging!
You need a blog. Period. I can’t think of a better tool to promote yourself, your business or anything else for that matter than a blog. So why is having a blog so important? Here are 3 reasons you absolutely must have a blog:
1. To Build Your Brand
A blog can serve as the foundation for your brand. By sharing your thoughts, ideas and products through your blog, you can establish yourself as an expert in your industry, niche or social circle. Over time and with consistency on your part, you can position yourself as the go-to person in your space. People will think of you first when they think of whatever space you are in.
2. To Connect, Socialize and Engage
If you don’t have a blog, you are missing out on a great opportunity to connect to your fans, audience or anyone else who may be interested in what you have to say. Having a blog is a great way to get people to share your information with their friends though connections with Facebook, Twitter and all of the other social networks out there. It’s also a great way to help people too. Your blog can make a difference, start a movement, and even change the world.
3. To Get Some SEO Power
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. This is a technical term for things you can do to your website or blog to improve your ranking in the search engines, especially Google. Being ranked on the first page of Google dramatically improves your chances of being found online. As a matter of fact, studies have shown that 95% of people never look beyond the first page of search engine results. Being in the top position in Google results gets you approximately 40% of all clicks alone depending on the search terms. This is why SEO is important and this is why you NEED to be on the first page in Google for your search term. A WordPress blog helps you improve your position within Google rankings because Google adds a lot of weight to your blog, especially if you keep it active. Combine that with an SEO friendly theme like THESIS and you have a winning combination. This is especially important if you are looking to make money blogging, since being on the front page of the search engines will increase your traffic, therefore increasing your chances of getting your product or services in front of potential customers.
Think it’s difficult to start and maintain a blog? Think again! Here is a quick training video that I put together that will help get you started with a WordPress blog in less than 15 minutes: Easy Blog Setup
A couple of months ago, I set up a very simple blog for my wife. She wanted a place where she could share her craft ideas, recipes, thoughts and other great stuff. Her blog, Sweet Sugar Mama, is very basic, but so far, her results have been amazing! As of this writing, she has close to 1,200 visitors per month.
As more and more people find out about her site, one of the most common questions she gets is how she set up her blog. After helping many of her friends get their own blogs set up, I decided to create this site to teach people how to set up a blog, very easily and quickly.
I hope you find this information helpful and it gets you started on a fun and maybe even profitable path!
