With the next blog challenge right around the corner – we start on June 1 – I thought I’d give you some ideas for making this one as productive as possible. My friend and colleague Dr. Jeanette Cates is hosting the blog challenge this time, and she has gone all out to make sure you have an experience that will build your business, connect you with new prospects, friends, and joint venture partners, and help you to launch your online business in a way that will make your summer more profitable than ever.
The first thing you’ll want to do is to sign up at the member’s area where she has created something that has never been done before. If you are already a part of her Incubator program – this is the $47 per month program where you have 24/7 access to all of her training and I hold a webinar each week to answer questions and guide you through each module – then there is a separate area for you to sign in. You will be able to include all of your information, as well as being able to present an offer to those who visit the site.
Thinking of ideas for 30 blog posts can also be a challenge, so here are some ways to come up with good content to share on your blog. This is a holiday weekend here in the United States this weekend, so my recommendation is to write a few posts this weekend, advance date them so they will appear next week, and then you will be ahead of the game from the very start. Here are some ideas for finding content for your blog posts:
- Write a post that introduces you to your audience again, even if you already have regular readers. Tell us more about who you are, what you have to offer online, and what you want to accomplish during this blog challenge.
- Take a look at your oldest blog posts and update them. I do this about once a month, and it has been excellent for my page rank and traffic. I find an old post and rewrite it with a new spin. Then I include a link in the new post to the original post so that readers can have easy access to even more information.
- Read other blogs and get ideas for topic that you might not have thought about before.
- Ask people on Twitter what information they would like to have on your topic. Do some research and write the post, and then tweet it to let people know that you answered their questions. This will connect you with even more people.
- Repurpose a short report or other writing you have done.
- Use some public domain content to create new posts.
- Take a current event and make it relevant to your niche topic
These are just a few ways to make this blog challenge the best one ever for your business. What can I do to make this the best possible experience for you next month?
