I spent the past 20 minutes tidying up a guest post before publishing. Not compromising. Putting out only the best, targeted content. These are a few ingredients to running a successful home based opportunity.
I recall the days and sprinting to publish any request. Or allowing my blog to become a link farm. No more. I want to become more successful. I want to treat my readers.
Benefits of Running a Successful Blog
- establish your authority
- build your home based opportunity brand
- make friends in high places
- make money through your blogging efforts
- travel the world
- quit your day job
….and the list goes on and on. Success breeds success, meaning that as you become more successful, you will attract success in many aspects of your life.
I formerly accepted crap. I chased after broke prospects. I did dumb stuff. I learned though. Associate with winners. Only publish the best content. Target that content. Grow your venture. Took me some time to learn. Thank goodness I did. Painful lesson though
After compromising I simply put my foot down. I will not tolerate anything less.
1: Do NOT Compromise
I sometimes see guest bloggers – through general ignorance which is OK or through selfishness – do a terrible job setting up their user account. Or they attempt to sneak a resource box into the post for reasons such as setting up a new link each time they post. I refuse to become a link farm here at Cash With a True Conscience so 1 resource box.
It is permanent, linking back to your content rich blog. Or yes, I permit sales pages but it must be consistent. Or you can change the link each time you post.
Never compromise or else your home based opportunity will suffer. I turn down poor quality or off topic posts or I edit off topic posts to become topical if I see the potential there. Successful blogs publish the best, relevant, targeted content each day. Or multiple times daily. Never compromise. Hold a vision of what you want for your readers. Stick to it!
2: Create Like a Machine
I post 2-3 times daily. I write between 1800 and 2500 words daily. Why? Bloggers who become skilled writers, and story tellers, simply succeed like mad. Do not wait to create. Stunningly successful bloggers write each day for hours because successes commit to putting out awesome, relevant, entertaining, emotion-inducing content.
Hit your readers in the gut. Make them happy. Put a smile on their face. Grow your home based opportunity. How many hours did Michael Jordan, or Tiger Woods, or Larry Bird, spend practicing, to become the best?
Thousands, and thousands, and thousands. Separate yourself from the crowd by practicing for thousands, and thousands, and thousands of hours too.
3: Grow Your Network Aggressively
This has been lacking in my world. I ramped it up big time last week. I worked to network with as many bloggers as possible. I followed leaders. Yep, I have been taking these steps for years but I fully committed to networking aggressively a few days ago by:
- commenting on other blogs
- guest posting on other bogs
- aggressively promoting other bloggers
- leaving comment on authority Facebook Page updates
This doubling down time approach helps you gain exposure, boost your reputation and grow your blogging audience quickly. If you are succeeding online but need a little extra juice you are not meeting enough new people daily. Network like a champ. Comment on many, many, many blogs daily.
Leave that Google fear of commenting on too many blogs behind. Do you honestly think that you can depend on Google to make money? Didn’t think so. A network of 1000′s of friends will help you make a stunning fortune, so meet those thousands of friends.
Create only the best content. Publish high quality stuff. Write like a champion. Brush up on your blogging skills. Network like a beast. Do not overlook the compromising part. Have posture. Have a backbone. Turn down anything you see as unfit for your blog both in the authority as well as relevance categories.
This is a killer for most desperate bloggers because hopping on any piece of content feels like the right thing to do. But doing so hurts your reputation and damages your blogging brand. Accept only the best on your blog and if you are not seeing quality guest posts then heck, create stunningly quality content yourself! Practice, build your authority and you will attract uber successful bloggers to create posts for you.
