As a professional blogger, it’s very important to me to have a workflow that really works. I write dozens of posts every month, hundreds every year, so efficiency is essential. It’s taken a while, but now I have a system that helps me be effective in everything from idea generation to publication and sharing. The ability to come up with new ideas or to improve the ideas that others suggest is crucial. Here’s how my blogging workflow works.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but right after you’ve launched a blog, you’ll immediately go and register a few social profiles for it. With Twitter and Facebook being the first ones.
But registering these social profiles alone does not bring you any visitors. You should have a solid SMM strategy if you want to be successful. And most importantly, avoid common mistakes that most bloggers make as they are starting out. Just recently I asked 50 respected bloggers for advice on Twitter Marketing, which made me recall some awfully stupid mistakes that I was making myself early in my blogging career.
I write up to five blog posts every week. That may sound easy for some, but for me, it gets a little tough. You see, I have two jobs. I’m the Grand Master of Customer Delight at Post Planner and I run the daily operations of Leneys, a women’s apparel company that I started with my girlfriend. The key is time management. I want to show you how I write five blog posts a week and share my thoughts on expert interviews while maintaining my sanity.
Many bloggers struggle to give their content some pizzazz. We all know how important quality content is but you also need quality visuals to capture attention. That’s where Visme comes in. It’s a web application that helps you to create online presentations, Infographics and all kinds of interactive visual content – and it’s laughably easy to use. I first reviewed it a few months ago on the Crazy Egg blog, but a lot has changed since then so I thought it was time for a new look at this tool.
Rob Cubbon is a London-based blogger that I connected with several years ago through blogging communities and social media networks. It’s been a pleasure to watch Rob build his reputation and authority online through his blog, freelancing and web design expertise. To date Rob has published several Kindle books on Amazon covering WordPress, passive income, home-based business and more. It’s been several months since the last time an interview was posted here on the blog, but I really wanted to share some of Rob’s story here because I know you will get inspired by what he’s done just like I did.
Do you find yourself scratching your head trying to figure out what to post on Facebook and other social media sites?
I feel your pain. I manage a handful of Facebook pages and I used to spend hours trying to figure out what type of content my followers like to see and share. Then back in 2012, I found PostPlanner. PostPlanner helps you find viral content to post on Facebook and other social sites!
Email marketing is important simply because it’s a way that you can create a community around your target niche. That’s the “correct” way to say it. The real reason why marketing through email is so important is because every successful marketer knows that it’s a license to print money. The rules of business and marketing have changed, and those changes have killed many businesses. But the changes have also created enormous opportunity for thousands of others. If you understand the new playing field, grabbing your prospects attention and building a relationship with him or her has actually gotten a lot simpler in many ways.
