10 lessons I learned from reading “Marketing with Social Media” and how they made my website better -TECHNO EVOLUTION LEADS REVOLUTION
1) How to get more traffic?
From lesson 1 in Prof. Bill’s book, “Why Me, Lord?” we can learn how to get more traffic to our blog. Prof. Bill has written this book to allow business minded people, students, hobbyists, writers and bloggers to expand their horizons and get their ideas to the public. To get our ideas in public, we can start a blog like what Prof. Bill indicated. Even if we write a few posts, our blog won’t become famous. We need to generate more traffic so that more readers come to our blog and our ideas will then influence people.
2) Why blog?
Every business should have an online presence, so the customers, clients can know what the business is all about. Once a blog is already published and read by the audiences, depending on the quality and quantity, it is easier for a blog to grow. So students’ ideas can get noticed if they keep blogging, hobbyists can also make money if they were successful in attracting more traffic.
3) How many words should a post have?
The first article was about a Newspapers application for IOS (iPhone, iPod and iPad). In the second article, I introduced the world of Japanese animation to the readers. In the third article, I pointed the readers to download some IOS applications that would enable them to watch Japanese animation for free on their iPhones or iPad devices. In this way, I have been writing posts every day. By learning this chapter, I increased my articles to 200 + words, which will generally get noticed by search engines. My blogs’ traffic is slowly growing as I write more articles with 200+ words.
4) How to create a successful business blog and what should we choose as a title?
In Bill’s book, he teaches about how to create a successful business blog. The name of the blog plays an important role. We can’t just tell people to visit my blog. We need to tell them to visit my blog with this name. In lesson 2 of Bill’s book, he teaches about the importance of the blog title. After reading this book, I have understood why blogs are called the king of social media, how to get traffic to my website and solutions to obstacles you might face when starting a new blog. In which way, a blog can help us how to write a good blog, the amount of effort needed to build a successful blog and finally how to get loyal followers of the blog. I have named my blog TECHNO EVOLUTION LEADS REVOLUTION.
5) Reasons Why Business Blogs Are King of Social Media
In chapter 3, I learned the 5 reasons why a business blog is the king of social media. I indulged my friends and family to read my blog and point out any mistakes or corrections that I need to make. Once the corrections in the posts are made, I sent out my blog link to my social network via email, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and Twitter. Once my blog is being read and I got an intake of comments from the readers, I make it official by including it in my business card. The link on the card will let people subscribe to my blog.
I reached out to people who actually will benefit from my blog. People who are new to technology, people who are looking for latest applications in IOS devices. People who need certain technology and wants to know if it exists and if it is available for free.I am keeping the blog up to date with the current technologies. I will make sure I post regularly and reply to the comments regularly. Once I get loyal subscribers to my blog, then it will be my duty to maintain their trust and see that the blog looks current.
We bloggers can communicate with our readers to get their input and get ideas on the new blog post. If we can improve our blogs depending on the readers input, we can make our blog popular and get more traffic. If you search using my name in Google, you might not go to my website but most likely you will go to my blog posts. This is the fact I learnt from Bill’s textbook.
At present, I am not at Bill’s stage, I don’t have enough posts or traffic to make money. But once my blog traffic picks up, I will be able to advertise new technologies in my blog and write articles to promote them. In this way, I will be able to make money. Once the blog becomes popular we will be able to write reviews or posts for other websites, who in turn will pay us our wage.
6) How to get serious traffic to my blog?
I learned in chapter 4 how to get serious traffic to my website. I learned that I needed to have a sufficient quality of posts to get noticed. These posts should appeal search engines and the readers. After reading this chapter, I update my blog consistently. I learned that the blog should be present for a long amount of time. We shouldn’t switch blogs constantly and ask our readers to switch.
7) How to start a blog?
8) How to get a domain?
9) How to host a blog?
From chapter 5, I learnt the common obstacles I might face and how to over come them.
I learnt how to start a blog, I learnt how to get a domain, I learnt how to host our domain, I learnt how to create site title, and I learnt how to create a tag line.
We have to buy a domain and a hosting service from the retailers. I have bought my domain and hosting from fatcow.com. Once we have them, we need to install wordPress in the domain to start our blog. I have created a site title “TECHNO EVOLUTION LEADS REVOLUTION”. I have created a tag line “Modern technology innovations in PC, MOBILE and TABLET APPLICATIONS”.
