9 Steps to Your Blog Marketing Action Plan

9 Steps to Your Blog Marketing Action Plan

Did you know your blog can be a traffic generation magnet for your website? Are you leveraging it to create the maximum results for your business? This checklist is focused on strategies you can use to drive traffic to your website using your blog and your presence in other blogs.


I'm going to assume you already know the basics of blog creation. Perhaps you have already put up your blog on WordPress or Blogger, with a link to your website in your Blogger profile, and include your website URL in the links bar on your blogroll.


I'm also going to assume you already know to post high quality and relevant content to your blog on a regular basis, encouraging user feedback and comments. This will help you get high search engine rankings and keep people coming to your blog and visiting your site, which will ultimately convert to paying customers for your products and services.


If you haven't done that yet, make sure that you take care of some preliminary steps:


a) Identify your niche.
b) Identify short tail and long tail keywords related to your niche.
c) Register your blog and start posting at least once a week.


Step 1: Identify the top 10 influential or popular blogs in your niche and if there is not already a blog post listing or reviewing the top 10 blogs in your niche, be the first to write it.


This will rank highly in the search engines, which will result in increased traffic to your blog and ultimately your website. Also, it establishes your credibility as an expert as you are reviewing what is said in your niche and influential blogs that serve your niche, which only someone who is knowledgeable of the niche can do.


Step 2: Write each author of the above blogs, introducing yourself and your blog, and alerting them to being named onto your list.


As you develop relationships with the top bloggers of your niche, you can be sure they will remember you. You can post a small review of their blog on your blog, if need be, and request a link from them to your blog in return. These mentions will increase the total number of links you have, resulting in a higher search engine ranking.


Step 3: Claim your blog on Technorati.


Technorati.com is like the Google search engines for blogs. You definitely want to claim your blog on their site, before someone else does.


Step 4: Submit your blog to blog directories and bookmarking sites after each post update.


Examples of ping services include www.pingoat.com and daily blog tips.com/ping list . These ping services update major blog sites like Technorati and alert them to your updates. This will push your blog to the top of their "recently updated" pages and increase your site awareness and traffic. You might even make it to the top page, if only for a short time.


Step 5: Submit your blog to blog directories and carnivals.


A good starting point is Blogcatalog.com and Blogcarnival.com. This is where people find quality blog articles related to their topic and post them together under one heading. Submitting your blog article gives it a high chance of being accepted, and generate a lot of traffic to your site.


Step 6: Register with statistic tracking services and install tracking software on your blog.


One tracking service is Mybloglog.com. Tracking services tell you who is visiting and referring traffic to your blog.


Step 7: Identify other blogs in your niche and industry and be a fan.


Leave a high value comment on their blogs (in other words, don't just write "Nice post"!). They will usually allow you to leave your URL at the bottom of your comment. But people won't feel compelled to check you out unless you are already providing value to the conversation by adding a thoughtful, useful blog comment.


Step 8: Use trackbacks and links.


Leave lots of trackbacks and links to popular blog posts on your own blog. This will encourage those you link or trackback to, to do the same and will increase traffic to your site.


Step 9: Encourage dialogue.


In your own blog and posts, invite comment and discussion from readers. Respond to their comments. This will get visitors to return to your blog, pushing it up in the blog directories, but more importantly, establishing a community of readers that knows you are listening and responding to what they have to say.


If you are already receiving the traffic and leads you want from your blog, congratulations! You have successfully created a traffic-driving, lead-generating blog campaign. If not, try one or more of the steps above and track your results. Always remember: Test, track and tweak for maximum results.

Rapid Action Profits - The Low Cost Solution to Selling Digital Information Products

Rapid Action Profits - The Low Cost Solution to Selling Digital Information Products

You have done all the hard work in creating your own ebook and you've been looking for a way to get it out onto the web to start making you money


But you then ask yourself...


"What do I need to do now to actually sell my ebook online?"


I know exactly how you feel. Most of us have been there and the unlucky ones still are. Getting a new product ready to market is not that easy. There's a lot of things to think about when you want to sell a digital information product.


On the face of it you just need to create a sales site that will handle payments and automate the delivery of your product. But there are more pieces to a good sales system than most people realize.


There are so many things to think about...


Will your sales page convert?
How can you test it?
How do you set up a payment processor?
How do you set up a back-end product - or a One-Time Offer?
How do you protect your downloads?

And if you do finally make sales do you have a way to automatically add your new customers to your list so that you can sell some more stuff to them? After all, a list full of buyers is worth far more than a list of freebie seekers.


The trouble is, at the start you probably won't have a HUGE, responsive list to promote your products to so to speed things up you need to get some affiliates on board to promote for you.


There's no getting away from the fact that recruiting affiliates is the best way to leverage your time, and make more lots more money. All the top marketers do it so why not you?


But then you need to know...


How do you recruit and pay affiliates?
And what about JV Partners?

All this can be a little overwhelming to say the least!


To do all this complicated stuff you must have some kind of system that will automate the entire sales process and get affiliates and JV's to promote your products for you.


So what do you actually need to sell digital products?


Of course you can pay a couple of thousand dollars for Mike Filsaime's Butterfly Marketing script which is a great product but a little pricey for people just getting started. If you do have your own products to sell and can afford it then I highly recommend that you buy it.


The low-cost alternative?


Rapid Action Profits, is an all-in-one marketing system that controls lead capture, split-testing, payment processing, affiliate payment, secure downloads, one-time offers, and much more.


This is a great alternative to the Butterfly Marketing script that won't break the bank and is used by many successful marketers, including me. It can do much of what the Butterfly Marketing script can do but without the high price ticket.


And the best part is that it's constantly updated with powerful new features to make it even better.
