It will require you to learn and do some things you may not have done before. But, the rewards can be tremendous. Below is a outline of the basic steps to create your blog.
To Create Your Blog You Should Know Your Why
You want to start with YOUR WHY! Understanding YOUR WHY gives you determination and focus. You need to start with this! YOUR WHY should motivate and carry you through good and bad times. You need to consciously be aware of YOUR WHY and put a plan together to help you achieve it no matter the circumstances.
Use Your Unique Selling Proposition To Attract Others To You
Your USP (Unique Selling Proposition) is what sets you apart from everyone else. It is what you offer that makes you unique. It is what gives you your story and allows you to connect with others who have shared similar experiences or have gone down a similar path. You will use YOUR USP to attract others to you. Your audience is looking for a connection. You do have talents, skills, experiences that make you unique. MLM Blog Training will challenge you to understand what you can offer to others and then guide you through the mechanics of doing it.
Conduct Market Research And Understand Your Target Market
You want to focus your attention on doing Market Research. Know what is going on in your Target Market. Learn the trends, know the competition, know what your audience wants….do the research and understand your Target Market and you will be able to focus in on their needs and provide a solution.
Narrowly Defined Your Niche
Determining Your Niche is sometimes the most difficult thing for someone to do. You can not be all things to all people on the internet and be found. You should not blog about board topics and in generalities. You need to start with a target market, then narrow it down more and more to you find Your Niche (and even better if it is a micro niche). You want to be very narrowly focused. The pond may be small but you will be a big fish in that pond.
You Are The Brand…Don’t Forget That
This is very important step are you create your blog! It is not about the company, products, service, comp plan or any of those things when you are trying to build your MLM online. You want to Brand You! That is what is important. I know that can be difficult. You don’t want to come across as bragging or arrogant. You can Brand You with out doing either. When someone is sponsor shopping they are looking for a leader. The company and products are just ways you earn a living and assist others in doing the same. In building your business you need to Brand You. MLM Blog Training can assist you with this.
Your Blog Is About You….Not Your MLM
Determining Your MLM Home Based Business should be considered carefully. There are a number of critical factors every offline and online entrepreneur should consider before joining a MLM company. But, remember it is not about Your MLM, the products, the service or the compensation plan.Your business is about YOU. Your MLM takes a back seat on your blog! Your blog is not about your MLM….it is about You and the value you offer.
