Punch list prior to blogging

Get excited: Once you know you are going to pull the trigger on making a blog start creating some excitement. Wether you do it on your facebook page, twitter or email newsletter start getting people pumped for the blog.

Nerd out: That’s right nerd out, study other blogs, read your favs and get a feel for the kind of info you dig reading. Comment on blogs and even bookmark some for your blog role later on.

Get organized before hand: You want to know what kind of traffic is coming your way and with places like WordPress a lot of the metrics are included in the blog which is great but in the event you don’t us WordPress set up your blog with Google Analytics.

This is not a comprehensive list but it is a pretty good checklist for vitals you need to put in place to make your blog a success!

Why blog?

A blog allows  problem free and speedy interactive social media marketing. Now we know your website is the heart of your business and that is where we want the road to lead but staying active and keeping a human feel to your marketing agenda is where a blog comes into play (not to mention a whole lot faster!). Updating regularly with informative or value based info is the name of the game. Keep it simple and shoot for at least a post per week. Doing so will win over new clients and is much less intrusive to your existing fans than other methods but requires your attention, don’t forget that, and the path to your business will always shine bright .
