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:
- Visual design (part of marketing as well)
- Marketing design
- 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
- 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.Did you find this blog post valuable?
