Let’s start with imagery.  The use of images is critical to keep people engaged!  Here are a couple of pictures I chose to display the “stand out” theme.

Let's start at the beginning

You may be looking for the nuts and bolts of making your own blog site, and so I’m going to walk you through the very simple steps, but along the way I plan to teach you how to make your site absolutely fabulous!  Don’t have a site like everyone else!  Make your site stand out!

Step 1 - Acquire a website

Here is a quick video that shows how extremely easy it is to create your first website:

Step 2 - Research for your awesome blog

Creative

Blogging

The type of research will vary slightly depending on what you choose for your niche, obviously.   In today’s age, we are lucky when it comes to research, because we have the internet at our fingertips.  How cool is that?  Back in the day, I’d have to trek to the library or pull out my encyclopedias (which really had very little information as much as they used to cost).

I want to give you a word of caution, though.  The last thing you want is to have a website full of regurgitated information.  The search engines won’t like you, and neither will your readers.  You need to be unique and interesting and share information your readers will find valuable!

Take a trip to a retail store or professional that centers around your niche.  If you are a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate, you will have other marketers in your niche you can bounce ideas off of.   

Do some searches online in your niche and take a look at some of the other blog sites.  What is happening in your niche?  What are people talking about?  What types of products and services are these other blogs promoting?  I am not, in any way, suggesting you copy other sites.  What I am suggesting is that you let others inspire you to create your own amazing site!

Step 3 - Write content

Make blog site

 

This part of blogging is my favorite part.  I love putting my thoughts down in writing, and I love helping other people!  Do you know that is the key to making money?  Helping others?  Zig Ziglar said it best:

"You can have if you will just help other people get what they want."

- Zig Ziglar

I want you to really process this quote.  Think about it.  Zig Ziglar did not talk to hear himself.  He spoke to impart words of wisdom, and these words are full of wisdom for sure.  

Make your blog all about helping people.  Figure out what it is people in your niche need, and provide that for them.  This can be information, products or services.  

When you first begin blogging, you always want to begin with information.  Do not immediately promote any products or services.  That comes a little later in the process.

Help writing content - Do not fear!

I can’t tell you how many of my readers and students come to me with fear in their eyes telling me they just aren’t very good at the English language.

I tell them to fear not!  Wealthy Affiliate has a writing platform that is going to save you all that worry, and a ton of time, and help you put out quality content with proper spelling, grammar, sentence structure and punctuation!  

What?!  I know!  Let me show you how it works.

The content on your blog is what it’s all about!  I teach all my students to always choose a niche they love!  I tell them to find something they are passionate about!  If they really commit to your blog, they will spend a lot of time immersed in their niche, so it really needs to be something they want to spend that much time and energy on!

I love my blog.  I have met so many people and helped to teach people how to make money online and improve their lives.  This includes college students, single moms and dads, couples, and retirement folks.  Blogging is not only a great outlet, but it is a way to generate a substantial income online from home!

Step 5 - Share your content

How much you share and to whom you share will all depend on the purpose of your blog.  If you are blogging for yourself, family and friends, you’ll want to share new articles with them on your social media.  If you are blogging to earn income online, you want to blast your posts out all over all your social media, personal and business!

  1. Thank You so much for all of the information you’ve provided. Internet Marketing can be a little scary to say the least but it’s  website creativity along with SEO make it a fun and technically challenging option for self employment and/or servicing others’ websites. What input do you feel a newbie needs to understand regarding SEO that will help them (me) understand its importance?  Thanks so much!!

    1. The one thing to understand is pleasing your readership, thereby pleasing the search engines.  They want their customers to have a great experience, so you need to become that great experience for your readers.  ~ Babs

  2. In my experience of 2 years in blogging, the hardest part is definitely the writing. In the beginning, it was hard for me to write regular blog posts as I could not find the ideas on what to write about. At the time it was becoming more easier and today I am a full-time writer. Everything comes with time, you only need to decide what you want with your blog.

    1. That’s one of the great things about Wealthy Affiliate.  They teach so many different strategies to find keywords and topics.  It’s great.  ~ Babs

  3. I owe Kyle and Carson a lot for showing me how to build a website. I also introduced my dad to it, and he’s really appreciating it. Men die a couple of years after they retire.
    Not this Guy! At 74, he’s having a ball making passive income and his website is of service to others. I even get jealous of him sometimes.
    The quality of the programs is top-notch. The co-founders are hands-on. They are honest and also ethical and Wealthy Affiliate has a very supportive community. I would recommend them 400%.

    Regards!

    1. That’s really cool, Jordan!  I’m glad to hear your Dad has taken advantage of the program!  It’s a great idea for anyone!  ~ Babs

  4. In a world where everyone and their grandma has a website online, it’s refreshing to know an entrepreneur can get additional help which will help them rise above the competition. When it comes down to email and affiliate marketing, some organizations are better than others, at helping business entrepreneurs succeed. Wealthy Affiliate has all the tools to help the beginner succeed. But it does take good competition from other website companies to produce successful business people.

    1. There are literally millions of websites out there, and probably hundreds or thousands in a given niche.  You have to stand out, it’s not a choice.  I hope you enjoyed the article and got some good value from it!  ~ Babs

  5. This is so appealing to me as I am someone who is brand new to affiliate marketing. I have some experience with social media marketing but I never had any real training so all I have in personal experience from trial and error along with basic marketing classes in business school. 

    I also recently started seeing reviews about Wealthy Affiliate and it was the first thing I have seen on the interest in YEARS of research that was absolutely free to try. I tried it out and I haven’t regretted it yet and I have coming to my second month close with the platform. 

    The training is outstanding. The support system from other members is even greater. You have made it sound so simple, and it truly can be if you use WA!! 🙂 

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hey, Kara!  You’re right – They offer so much for free, it’s really amazing to me.  No credit card, nothing.  Just your name and email and you get two free websites, free hosting, and the starter training.  The Premium is really where it’s at, though, in my opinion because of the community you get.  That’s the main thing.  That support, and of course all the continued training offered in Premium and the live training weekly.  I’m very enthusiastic.  I love the program!  ~ Babs

  6. Hi, this is a nice step by step instructions for people to follow if they want to work from home. Good work here.  I also appreciate the advice on how to make your blog stand out from your competition.   

    I like to make my images as engaging as possible and trying to get emotion in my writing when I can to keep my readers attention. Simply focusing on trying to help people is my way of preventing writers block.

    You can have a business that you are passionate about by simply following this advice. I wish I had found about about WA 10 years ago.  There is great potential for anybody that is willing to work hard and never give up.

    Thanks.

    1. Yes, Jake, me too, I wish I had found it ten years ago, but I’m just glad I found it.  My business, my blog, how I help people and build my business, it all changed.  Now, thanks to WA, I’m growing my business by leaps and bounds.  It’s brought me a huge level of success.  I’m glad you’re getting a lot out of it as well.  Great to hear!  ~ Babs
