12TipsToBuildYourEmailList

The money is in the list. Many successful bloggers have said it and I completely agree with them. The bigger and responsive your email list is, the more money you will make blogging or affiliate marketing. So, if you are a blogger and if you want to monetize your blogging efforts you should start building an email list immediately! In this post, I will share with you tips and techniques which will help you get more email subscribers. These are pointers which I have started to apply and I am seeing some amazing results already.

DO YOU WANT TO START MAKING MONEY FROM YOUR BLOG? SIGN UP NOW. Get FREE TIPS on BLOG MONETIZATION REGULARLY!

  1. Make your sign-up forms dominant: Place opt-in forms all across your layout. Use your top fold effectively, your side bars and place opt-ins at the end of your post. Make it impossible to miss for your readers.
  2. Make use of Pop ups and popovers: Okay, so many people think pop ups are irritating, But it doesn’t matter. Using one pop up per session will give you amazing results. Why do you think some authority sites have it?
  3. Free stuff works: Free ebooks and other free give aways work like a charm. A little bribe doesn’t harm but can only increase your opt-ins. So make sure to offer something to your readers in return for their email address.
  4. Contests are fun: Create contests, be it trivia, tell a friend, asking for a vote all these things can be used to engage your readers to participate by registering with their emails. I am going to be using it soon here on Blogger Hacks once I move to own hosting.
  5. Create free tools or resources: I know this is not going to be possible for everyone, But over a period of time you could think of coming up with tools which your readers can use upon signing up with their email address.
  6. Promote your offers on social media: You can create special offers for your Twitter followers or facebook fans and position lead generating options into them. You can add a call to action in the form of a sign up to your facebook page.
  7. Guest blog consistently: I would say, it would be great if you could write on other blogs than your own. No, really if people need to know that you exist then you need to write on other blogs and get readers to come to your blog. This will help you build your reader base. You can slow down once you have a substantial reader base of your own.
  8. Display social proof statements: Yes, it works. Show your subscriber count, your follow count, facebook likes and twitter followers. The numbers create a sense of worth for new readers or visitors and will encourage them to sign up.
  9. Create multiple subscription types: All your readers might not be interested in the same things. So create opt-ins based on your audience personas. Some may want to sign up for regular updates, but some of your readers may want to get email about only how to make money.
  10. Leverage your home page header: Making the top half of your blog or website an opt-in form is sure to increase your subscribers. Go ahead and give it a shot on your blog.
  11. Optimize for mobile users: Keep your theme and opt-in pop ups mobile ready. If your readers are mobile users and if your opt-in boxes don’t work properly across different mobile systems then you may lose readers.
  12. Use your comments to build a list: One of the options which I read about and I want to implement too is creating a Thank you page after a reader comments. The thank you page can have an opt-in option along with relevant information.

In conclusion, Let me emphasize, Email still remains the top marketing tool you can use to scale your reader base. So, hopefully anyone who is having trouble in building an email list will know what to do now. If you have used techniques which are different than what I have listed here, Do let me know about them in the comments section.

How To Write An Amazingly Perfect Blog Post ?

HowTOWritePerfectBlogPost

Producing a perfect blog post can be a difficult task. A perfect blog post is subjective, what is perfect to me may not be perfect to you. However, what is important to understand is, that there are certain qualities to a blog post which can influence the outcome. This is common to any form of a blog post.

In this post, which is a continuation to one of my earlier posts about writing amazing blog posts, I will elaborate and outline the key elements of a blog post which will make it perfect.

So let’s start with the blog post checklist:

Headline

Give special attention to your headline or title. You need to write a compelling headline to grab the attention of your readers. Do not forget that your headline is what your audience will read first. Make it impactful.

You can read How to Write Awesome Blog Titles to learn how to do that.

Introduction

Studies have shown that if people read the first few lines, they are more likely to read the complete post. So your introduction or opening should be strong. Make sure the introduction is succinct and does not focus on anything else but the opening. You can use an image to further strengthen your Introduction area.

Sub Headings

Use relevant sub-headings after your introduction. The primary role of sub-headings is to engage your audience further into continuing to read your blog post. Keep the sub-headings short and to the point. You have to get the right message across about what follows. Divide your content into as many relevant sub-headings as required.

Main Content

Under each relevant sub-heading, you will have your main content. Now, the purpose of each set of content is to evoke emotions and a response. Ideally, under your first sub-heading write content which prompts an emotional response from your readers. Follow it up with content ( Following Sub-head) which will advise, provide solutions to a particular problem or help your readers get results.

I will make an effort to summarize all these essentials in this post so that anyone who is a beginner or having difficulties with SEO can use this as a reference. For free blogging tips and tricks sign up to my subscriber list.

  1. Content is KING: I have written a post about How Content is King might just be a myth, but in relevance to Search engine optimization Content certainly is important. Quality content and regular updates are one of the main factors to get favorably indexed on Google and other search engines.
  2. Get your own domain and Hosting: I personally advice getting a domain name and hosting to improve on your blogs credibility and trustworthiness. Google specifically is progammed to identify owned domains and self hosting as parameters for trustworthy sites. Yes, I will be changing over to my own domain and hosting for this blog too, soon. I recommend bluehost for hosting and domain services.
  3. Buid relevant backlinks genuinely: Never do the mistake of buying backlinks. One of the best ways to build back links is to guest post. Your backlinks should be originating from authority sites, otherwise it is useless in terms of search engine advantages. Keep your anchor text simple and use targeted keywords. Keep in mind, backlinks to your own content is important too!
  4. Titles are your game changers: Give special attention to your blog post titles. A lot depends on how you write them. Search engines, especially Google is very particular about titles. Keep them between 50 to 70 characters. Include target keywords wisely and position them in the beginning of the title.
  5. Use a SEO optimized theme: Make sure your theme is adequately SEO optimized. It should be coded well, loads easily and is fast. An optimized theme makes it easier for Google to find your content and index it. No broken links should exist which will hamper smooth navigation.
  6. Keywords in your post: Use keywords in your post content. Make sure you use relevant keywords for your images also. Keywords should be positioned naturally in your content. Keywords can be used in your Headings and sub headings also.
  7. Place a sitemap: Installing a sitemap makes it easier for Google and other search engines to index your blog posts, archives and pages better. Use this sitemap generator for best results.
  8. Diligently comment on other  blogs: Commenting on other niche blogs in your domain can help your SEO strategy. It helps you in increasing your traffic as well as building backlinks.
  9. Improve your social media presence: Use your social media profiles to increase traffic and appreciate your SEO efforts. Google measures your site authority and credibility based on social media shares and prominence your content is getting on these channels.
  10. Use SEO plugins: Install wordpress SEO plugins to get help with your SEO strategy. SEO plugins automatically optimizes your blog for Google.
