MLM Blogging Secrets Revealed – Part 1

In this post I would like to address some common questions that I got from my clients and other people in the industry. In essence, the “MLM Blogging Secrets Revealed” series are going to be a series of blog posts where I share with you ‘little-known’ secrets and others that are more commonly used, that will give you an edge when it comes to this highly competitive marketplace.

MLM Blogging Secrets: The basics…

I just had a phone conversation with a potential client and a question came up about the graphics on my blog. That is a great question and what you want to focus on are the basics when it comes to blogging. So MLM Blogging Secrets when it comes to create your initial blog are:

  1. Visual design (part of marketing as well)
  2. Marketing design
  3. Behind the scenes functionality

MLM Blogging Secrets: The Visual…

The MLM blogging secret about visual design is that your blog has to be professionally designed. Do not settle for home-made graphics, disproportionate pictures, excessive advertising, weird color combinations, poor branding photo…

Here is what you can focus on:

  • Clean and sharp graphics
  • Tidy
  • Professional branding picture (smiling and warming to the heart)
  • Simple colors and easy on the eyes to read (your prospect will spend more time on your blog). I would recommend white background on black text, as I have on mine.
  • Do a search on what colors mean before you choose your color scheme. Different colors elicit different feelings when people visit your blog.

MLM Blogging Secrets: Marketing…

MLM Blogging Secret 2 is your marketing design. First and foremost you have to have a lead capture form that is very specific and a value offering that people cannot resist! One of my mentors told me that you’re offer have to have your prospects waking up at night wanting to opt-in! This requires some copywriting skills.

BUT FIRST DEFINE YOUR TARGET NICHE!

Who is your ideal prospect? If you were to imagine your ideal prospect, who would they be?

Now you are ready to design your categories so they talk to your prospects and also expose your strong points and passion. I prefer to have categories and pages. Your content here is going to play a HUGE role. So remember to stick to inspiring, educational, empowering and entertaining content.

If you have anything negative to say, I recommend you keep it to yourself. Let your positive energy shine to the world.

Also, don’t forget about multiple streams of income!

MLM Blogging Secrets: Functionality…

MLM blogging secret 3 is your functionality of your blog. This is generally behind the scenes or subtle functionalities that your visitors do not notice. I forgot to say this before, it is highly recommend that you have a self-hosting blog using the wordpress platform. This is very important as it makes sure that you OWN your blog.

When you have your basic blog skeleton, your functionally comes from all the different plugins that you incorporate to make your blog really shine.

Anyways this is what I wanted to share in the first part. As we go further into the other parts in the future, I will go into more detail about each of the sections and more specifics about exact plugins, content creation, content syndication, generating leads, and setting up multiple streams of income.

    Great trips John. As a fellow blogger myself it’s important to remember it’s not just about the look and feel and how it reads but also the behind the scenes stuff.

    Great post John! I see so many blogs that use blogger.com and they don’t own their site! I like being able to just say go to valheisey.com! More professional if you are looking to monetize your site. Thanks!

    • johnmoussan January 6, 2012 at 12:34 PM #

      Hehe! Yes it sure sounds way more cool when you say your name.com instead something weird. I’ve actually had people in face to face conversation not believe that I had a fan club on facebook. So yup branding yourself on all levels is the sure way to go!

    Hi John, firstly, I would just like to say that you have a great looking blog. Very well done. I myself am using the Thesis theme which I have had customised quite a bit over the past year or so and will continue to customise as I move forward!

    You make three very valid points, attract the reader, keep the reader and engage the reader! Do this and you will build your business faster.

    All the best

    Hey John,

    I’ve gone through Mike Dillard’s Traffic Formula 2.0 , ( which is an excellent course btw) and he points out the importance of market research. That is pretty much gives a primary focus and a definite direction to head.
    And of course with a deep a market research we also discover the target market, keywords and so on.

    Great share!
    Looking forward to your further insights !

      Akos, thanks for dropping by and joining the discussion. Yes I have gone through this course and of course I could not agree more on market research that does give a primary direction! Glad you liked it.

    Hey John, even though a professional looking blog is nice I wouldn’t say it’s a MUST. If you have good content and are providing value then people will come. A lot of blogs that generate high traffic and a LOT of leads are pretty plain, boring, and sometimes down right ugly. As you are able to, then yes a professional looking blog is nice for branding purposes but bloggers that are starting out should focus less on the looks and just start blogging and putting out good content.

    Thanks for the other good tips!

    • johnmoussan January 6, 2012 at 2:19 PM #

      Hey Duke, thanks for sharing the conversation. I would agree. The point is it has to be clean and attention grabbing and with an INTENTION to market and way to funnel people. This is an interesting topic and let’s think about this also, what kind of people would an ‘ugly’ blog attract vs ‘well presented’ blog? This of course goes back to what you are trying to do and your goals. Good content is extremely important.
