(Because Your Consistent Lack Of Activity Is An Activity!)
Have you ever noticed how the very same people (who) far too often claim they like to earn $10K per month and more online, never (somehow) seem to be able to consistently contribute to the success of their self hosted Word Press blogs!
For sure they’ve got big dreams, just not nearly enough skill, dedication and or real world know how to pull it off.
And as a result, their Internet dream of earning some serious money, has to be put on hold. Too bad, because with just a few minor adjustments and a little consistency, they just might be able to make their dreams a (at least) a partial reality.
By earning some type of income and (steadily over time learning how to increase their online profits.
The following Five Vital Warning Signs Will Help Prevent Your Self Hosted Word Press Blogs From Turning Into A Cyberghost Town!
You’ll know you’re in trouble if your guilty of (at least) these five blogging indiscretions.
1.) Vital warning sign # one: By far the one vital warning sign that towers above all others, is none other than “blog abandonment!”
You know, this is where basically your blog has tumble weeds blowing all over it (metaphorically) speaking of course. Meaning- you post fresh valuable content to it, about once every six weeks or so!
Because (for whatever) reasons, you simply don’t have time! But oddly enough, you some how (miraculously) expect to earn a six figure income! Go figure?
Let’s be extremely clear here; no consistent fresh content from you, but you (in turn) expect money (six figures) worth, from your visitors! Yea right!
(The search engines in general (and) Google in particular don’t rank (very well) blogs that suffer from ‘blog abandonment.’)
2.) Vital warning sign # two: This second warning sign is a distant relative to # one. Failure to consistently (or even) at all, blog comment on other respected bloggers (blogs) within your particular niche, in order to drive highly targeted traffic back to your site.
This proactive practice is often referred to as blog commenting. And it is extremely low up front cost, although it does take a steady investment of your valuable time. But the overall rewards justify your time investment.
Because it basically accomplishes two very important things for you:
A.) To make a powerful connection with your specific target audience, by (blog commenting) on other respected bloggers within your particular niches, blogs. You drive highly targeted eyeballs to your site.
B.) And you create all important back links to your blog(s.) And of course the higher their site (currently) ranks in the search engines, the better the quality back link you have!
(FYI: the term back link just refers to the process of you adding your web address (URL) to another site and it points( back links) back to your particular site.
3.) Vital warning sign # three: And because you’re not actively doing the first two, this makes number three a lot less likely as well. You fail to take the time to (answer) or respond (in a ) timely manner to the comments and or questions that your visitors post in the comments section of your blog.
And just to give you a quick heads up here; there’s an old adage that says; “If you’re business is slow to respond to questions and or comments, they’ll be worse when it comes to providing good old customer service!
4.) Vital warning sign # four: When you do finally take the time to post fresh content to your blog. Often times it truly lacks real meaty value for your visitors!
Instead, you thinly hide the fact that your strictly trying to sell them instead of trying to better educate them and or service in order to ultimately get the sale.
And of course the net result is, you get nothing and your visitors are reluctant to return!
5.) Vital warning sign # five: Your Word Press self hosted blog is probably in trouble if all you do is plaster adsense ads all over it trying in vain to earn a quick buck instead of realizing that (long term) the absolute best way to monetize your blog is shift your approach.
Meaning – stop thinking of online sales as a one time event (like) a hunter does and instead think of your blogging activities as a farming process, the way a farmer does.
Meaning- just like the farmer does (so will) you earn money (and lots) of it over time!
Hopefully, your not guilty of these five vital warning signs! Because if you are, your Word Press self hosted blogs activities are leading you to the poor house!
