Welcome to my blog.
I am going to have a new focus here for 2017. I’ll be providing tips and strategies for blogging and working as an online entrepreneur.
In a recent survey of writers, 60% told me they would like to receive advice on how to build their own revenue-generating blogs and websites.
So I will be blogging here about running an online business with a strong focus on blogging, growing traffic, engaging with your audience, and marketing online.
I’ve been working online for 17 years now, and running my business full-time as an online entrepreneur for 11 of the past 13 years… and I love it! I love the flexible hours, although I admit that I work long hours. I also love that I can run this business from anywhere, as long as I have power and Internet access. I’m fortunate enough to have lived in three different countries over the past 13 years.
Many people wrongly think that setting up a blog or online business will be like the movie, Field of Dreams, “If you build it they will come.”
It’s not like that at all.
Certainly, the barrier to entry is easy. Anyone can throw up a website or blog in this age of digital publishing.
But it’s not enough to write great content.
- You need to know how to promote your content.
- You must employ strategies to grow your traffic.
- You must build a tribe of fans who enthusiastically engage with you.
If you really want to do this as a business, and make your living from it, then you need to learn how to effectively market your products and services online.
So welcome. I hope to be able to provide you with some helpful tips and ideas over the weeks and months ahead.
