The 8 Habits of Highly Effective Bloggers

The 8 Habits of Highly Effective Bloggers | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

Do you want to be a successful blogger?

 

I do. I might be getting a bit obsessed with it, actually.

 

Post ideas pop into my head unexpectedly. I keep a long running list of ideas for improving my blog.

 

I also study how the most successful bloggers got where they are, and I pore over every word that they write.

 

If you want to be a great blogger, you should, too.

 

A lot of the top bloggers like Brian Clark, Darren Rowse, and Leo Babauta have shared hundreds of tips about how they made their blogs so successful. But each blogger’s tips are just a little different.

 

There’s too much advice to follow

6 Tips to Help You Survive Your First 3 Months of Pro Blogging

6 Tips to Help You Survive Your First 3 Months of Pro Blogging | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

I was a high-school Maths teacher for eight years and for all those years, my life evolved in writing lesson plans, producing teaching materials and worksheets, dealing with parents, teaching some well-behaved and some rude students, and pleasing demanding bosses. When an opportunity came for me to finally be a full-time blogger, which allows me to be my own boss and set my own schedule and calendar, it was a dream come true.


Yet, as it turn out, building a website and establishing myself as an authority isn´t all fairy tales.

 

I was a part-time blogger for two years, juggling my full-time day job, after-school tutorials, and blogging until late midnight every day. My first blogs were built through a free blog platform, on which I learned HTML, SEO techniques, and a little online marketing. I had enough experience and I was quite ready to do blogging full-time before I decided to quit my job...

38 Critical Books Every Blogger Needs to Read

38 Critical Books Every Blogger Needs to Read | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

Your blog is a business.


I’m not saying that your blog should make money. If you’re a Copyblogger reader, that’s probably already something you’re focusing on.

 

I’m saying that your blog (independent of the other parts of your business) itself has all of the components of a business:

 

-You have an idea … that’s entrepreneurship.
-You write content … that’s the product.
-You build a list of subscribers and do some guest blogging … that’s marketing.
-You have readers … those are customers.
-You run analytics to see what’s working and what isn’t … that’s managerial accounting.

99 Ways to Build Links by Giving Stuff Away (and Improve Your Brand Too) | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

In this update you will find 99 actionable ways to gain links by giving stuff away. By the end you'll have a ton of link building ideas, some of which I hope will be new to you. This is a springboard for new ideas, so I hope this 99 can become many more, so please leave your comments and help grow this list.

 

These ideas come from methods I've seen customers use to get free stuff in researching the Free Stuff Everyday book, and also ideas we've used for clients at Koozai. In short there's nothing below that can't be sourced to the real world, so please give every idea a chance.

 

These ideas focus on getting increased chatter about your brand online, with the logic that when people are talking about your brand they are likely linking to it as well. If you find there is a lot of brand chatter without any links, you can always use brand monitoring tools to track your mentions, and then followup to ask for a link...
