Empowering entrepreneurs digest 9-8-13

  1. 1. September 8th, 2013 Published by: adrianejolly 1 Empowering Entrepreneurs 5 Reasons Why Blogging is the New Online Marketing Tool By Adriane Jolly on September 8th, 2013 Blogging started in late 90s. In the past, blogging was a way to comment on existing webpage–an opportunity for visitors and readers–the audience, to react or give an opinion on that webpage. What started as a one-sentence commentary on a webpage has evolved into pages of personal opinions on just about anything and everything under the sun. As blogging evolves, marketing has tapped into the blog’s potential. Here are 5 reasons why you should use blogging for Online Marketing: 1. Blogging is simple. The simplest way to get your information on the internet. You just need to know how to read and type, or at least click a mouse. It’s like having a virtual piece of paper and you just write your ideas, experiences, new products, and hope that the truth behind your articles comes out and entice your reader to also try your product. If you own a computer and an Internet connection (who doesn’t?) then you can blog and market to your audience. 2. Blogging is authentic. Today advertising saturate our lives, we question the credibility of promoters’ claims. In relation to blogging, real people share their real-life experiences, untouched by paid advertising. Reading product review blog posts is like talking to people about their first-hand experience. You definitely want to purchase a tried and tested product. 3. Blogging is free. Because blogging is yet to be proven as a mainstream online advertising media, most sites see it as something to augment current marketing tools and thus offer it for free. Any opportunity for free online marketing is definitely a plus, especially for business start ups. Needless to say, monetized blog pages can generate more income for your growing business. 4. Blogging builds credibility. As you get more and more into writing your experiences on a particular product or industry, your audience or readers come to realize that they can trust and depend on your posts for their information needs. That is
  2. 2. September 8th, 2013 Published by: adrianejolly 2 how you become an become an expert in that area. As a result, more readers visit your blog or website and more bloggers link to your blogs (backlinks are always a good thing). As companies and professional organizations notice the growth of your readership base, they may soon get in touch with you for advertising on your blog page, or make you an affiliate, which pays for every referral generated from your blog site. 5. Blogging builds your market. Unless you are a Hollywood star, chances are, only your Mom reads your posts. Mom has a lot of friends, so she lets her friends know how interesting your blog site is. But you need not depend on Mom to increase your readership base. Look into the following ways to build your market through blogging: • Using your e-mail. Today, blogging is overcoming the e-mail’s popularity in quickly and effectively reaching and expanding a market. In this age of speed and quick access, logging in and downloading e-mail is simply taking longer than clicking into a blog site. Let them explore your site by using a short e-mail message as teaser to your blog site. If your e-mail is on an entirely different subject, use your e-mail signature to give a link to the site. • Using subscription. An easy way to get your readers e-mail is to give them an opportunity to subscribe to your blogsite. Keep some exclusive information for your subscribers to entice readers to subscribe and give their e-mail address. Just be responsible in using their e-mail address, as the last thing you want is a comment on your blog that you are a spammer. • Understanding your audience. Conduct a simple survey for your readers to understand their profile and advertising preferences. Ask consumers to give you feedback on a post, an ad link, or a trial that you shared. In this way, it is like interviewing your readers without the commitment and intrusion of a face-to-face interview. • Joining a blog network. A network of blogs maybe a collection of blog sites that share the same industry, interest, readership base, payment mode, etc. Consumers find credibility and convenience in clicking one link to several real bloggers about a single subject. Clearly, more bloggers are better than one. • Using RSS. RSS is the fastest growing technology on the Internet today. As such, having RSS feeds to your blog is definitely another means of generating awareness for your readership base. Having a variety of feeds can add interest to your blog site.

Jolly Empowering Entrepreneurs Follow Me On Facebook Tweet With Me On Twitter How to use Attraction Marketing to Attract Ideal Customers to Your Business By Adriane Jolly on September 1st, 2013 Attraction Marketing: How to Attract Ideal Customers to Your Business Attraction marketing is simply the act of making your target audience notice you, and then become interested in what you have to offer. The idea is to offer valuable information that will make potential buyers go like “wow” I need to get closer to this person (you) to find out more about their products or services. And in the process you’ll convert them into buyers. It’s as simple as that. But mind you, there’s more to this marketing technique than what you just read. It involves taking some specific steps, and that is what you’ll learn in this article. Identify Your Prospects Recognizing your potential customers can be the easiest way to avoid marketing drudgery. The mistake most network marketing newbies make is that they want to sell to the general public. This is one of the leading causes of frustration in network marketing. By the time you realize that not everybody is ideal for your offer, you might have gone through a lot of rejections. This is where attraction marketing comes in. To attract ideal customers, it’s crucial that you identify them first, and find out what their problems are. This will help you tailor your communication and marketing strategy to their needs, and allow you to build rapport with them. It will also make prospects feel that you understand their desires, and they’ll see you as the right solution to their problem. Visit online forums for your niche, and pay attention to what people are discussing. Take the time to explore the categories
  3. 3. September 8th, 2013 Published by: adrianejolly 3 that you deem relevant to your offers, and you’ll be able to learn about the problems your potential clients are facing. Another helpful approach for implementingattraction marketing is to visit social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter. Search for your target audience with appropriate keywords that describes your offer. You’d be surprised about the number of potential customers on these platforms. Once you get them, take the time to join their groups, and take active part in any discussion that’s taking place within various groups. Don’t be tempted to mention your offers in the process of discussion. Just provide valuable insights about any topic that’s being discussed. The value of your insight will motivate members of the group to find out more about you. And that’s when they’ll begin to get attracted to you, and see you as an expert in your niche.

In part 1, we discussed how to identify your prospect. In this post we are going to discuss providing value and piquing interest. Provide Value and Pique their Interest When it comes to seeking information for their needs, people are very wary about who to believe. This makes it difficult to gain the attention and trust of people. But offering value first by giving out free and helpful information will make potential clients listen, and develop interest in you. After you identify your target audience, and discover the places that they frequent most, it’s essential that you make yourself known to them. A smart way to do that is by offering valuable information. Information that they can use to make their life or business better. And in the process, you’ll subtly introduce your product or service as a tool for making positive change in their lives. And that is attraction marketing. “Give everyone more in use value than you take from him in cash value. Then you are adding to the life of the world by every business transaction“. Wallace D.
