4 Blogging Hacks That Can Generate Leads To Your Business

We all live  in a very fast paced and crazy world. We are all coming and going. One day at some magical moment in time, we’ve decided to stop…and say “where in the heck am I going?” “What am I doing?” We’ve all said it. Some of us go, “oh never mind.” While some of us, “Gee, I need to do something about this.” The moment we make that decision we then search the internet far and wide for a new business idea, a new yoga pose, or when will Lionel Richie release a new album. At some point in the search for the “golden nugget” we start a business of some sorts. In that process we happen to discover we need a blog! Not just any blog, a blog that generates business for us…so that we never have to be in rush hour traffic or sitting on a bus next to a person with horrible body order. Now come the part of how do we generate leads with this blog. How do we get to place where we can, stop, slow down, and find our own rhythm? We want to connect with folks and get them to do business with us.  Let’s start with first…
  1. Who is Your Audience?

    The key to getting leads to your business is knowing who is your audience? You’ve got to know whom you are trying to reach. Are you trying to reach the awesome stay at home moms, or the 20-30 year old? Or are you looking for other work from home types like yourself? The blogs that perform well are blogs that target a specific group of people. This is basically marketing 101. Herbal Life, Amazon, Bob Proctor, etc doesn’t target people outside of their target market…neither should you with your blog.

  2. What is Your Message?

    Once you’ve identified your target market, you’ve got to create content that appeals to that group. For example, if you are tennis pro-shop, your content should not only include information on the products you sale, it should also include tips and tricks on improving the backhand, the serve, the forearm, or exercise tips for tennis players. You must add value to your blog readers’ experience. Your blog should be seen as the authority on tennis, which means your pro-shop is the place to come to for right equipment, fit, etc. This establishes your business as an authority on the subject, which separates you from the competition.  As I said in my previous post, blogging is a must.

  3. Always Ask For Their Email!

    Once you’ve decided to target tennis players. Then you create content and value around tennis, the tennis equipment, exercise for tennis players, etc. Always ask for their name and email address! Once you get a name and email,  you get to stay connected with your leads. You can send them updates on your blog. You can send updates on any sales, promotions, or special events. This will allow you to deepen that relationship with the client. People want to connect and feel like they are special, and apart of something! So create that for them with value content on your blog, and keeping them up to date.

  4. Connect On Social Media – Call To Action

    I can’t say this enough. Look at the multi-billion dollar players in the market… everything is directed to social media. As such, your blog must have links to share to social media. Make it easy for your readers to share with their friends on just about any social media out there. Most companies only focuses on Facebook. Pinterest, Twitter, and Google Plus. Always ask your readers to share your blog posting. Like a good bottle of wine, people love to share! Make it easy for them to do… as it will only bring new readers/leads to your blog. That’s the goal to get leads, and turn them into sales!

2 Stunning Business Quotes

Faith without works is just plain old dead. That new business you paid good money to start, is not generating revenue if you are not taking actions. No sales are made without some form of a cold call, marketing, or contact with a potential customer. That SEO Marketing Program you bought can’t learn itself. The MLM you joined isn’t going to pay you back if you don’t take “action.”
  1. We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. Action always generates inspiration. Inspiration seldom generates action.

    Frank Tibolt
    Read this quote out loud. Read it again. Read it one more time, word by word. Inspiration demands immediate action. It always has and will. Name a successful person who did not work on their goal? I can’t think of one either. Successful people have an idea, they get started, work towards it…and make corrections along the way. It’s no different than driving to the mall and you have to take a detour due to construction. Or go the grocery store for milk, bread, and cereal…and come out with fruit, nuts, and cheese because it was on sale. Take the actions you can take to make your inspiration become a reality.
  2. Nothing diminishes anxiety faster than action.

    Walter Anderson, The Confidence Course, 1997
    Action(s) taken in the direct achievement of our goals will always yield immediate and real results. We can take the results and make course corrections and changes. Let’s take it one step further. Have you let a speeding ticket stop you from driving? Then why would you allow anxiety (speeding ticket) stop you from reaching your dreams? Did you ever fall of a skateboard? Did it stop you from skateboarding? Go skateboard/drive your car… what are you waiting for? updated blog 7 of 2 of 21
Action, action, action is always required to make any dream come true. It doesn’t matter if it cooking an awesome holiday dinner for you and the family to enjoy. It doesn’t matter if it getting the kids together to chip in and send the parents on a 2nd honeymoon for the 40th anniversary. Whatever the goal is, it takes actions! Yes sometimes, we don’t know what actions to take, and we get stuck. We get so stuck we plant our roots in that muck/mire and just stay there. Now it’s time to get unstuck. Dig up that soil, clean off those shoes, and get to stepping. I know you are grateful for what you have out life, and you want a little or lot more. It’s time to take actions and make it happen. Fortune will always favor the bold. Are you bold, then take the action(s).
