The (Not-So-Simple) Secret To Getting More Customers From Your Blog

First, don’t think of it as marketing. Think of it as nothing more than delivering useful advice.

Fill your website with everything you possibly know about your subject. If you’re in real estate, talk about the community, the schools, how the local market is doing. If you’re selling a product, forget writing about the features and benefits. Instead, write about what the features enable your customers to do.

Focus on writing (and sharing) a bunch of How To’s, lessons, case studies …

Do this for a while and eventually, here’s what will happen:

  • People will start to recognize you as an expert.
  • People will start to come back to your website to learn (which is a thousand times more effective than buying a bunch of ads, though there’s a time and place for that).
  • They’ll “Like” your content and will start to bring their friends.
  • They’ll subscribe to your blog and they’ll come back again and again. You won’t need to throw any “marketing” at them – remember, they already see you as an expert.

And that’s it.

When they’re ready to buy, they will. And if all you’ve done is continued to deliver useful advice to them time and time again, they’ll buy from you.

That’s the secret to getting more customers from your blog.

Of course doing this well is the not-so-simple part.

          说道:Thanks for the points you have shread here. Something important I would like to convey is that computer system memory needs generally rise along with other breakthroughs in the engineering. For instance, when new generations of processors are introduced to the market, there is usually a similar increase in the dimensions demands of both the computer system memory along with hard drive room. This is because the application operated through these processor chips will inevitably surge in power to use the new engineering.

      说道:I know this if off topic but I’m looking into santtirg my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

    You say, ” … everything you possibly know about your subject.” But how much is “everything”? When do you know you know enough? How much of an “expert” do you need to be? What if there are others out there who know more than you do? Who are “ahead” of you already?

    What’s your subject? How broad? How narrow? How do you know how broad or narrow to make it? Should it be broader? Narrower? How do you know?

    They’re hard questions … that I think only experience (and lots of trial and error) will help you answer. Not answer, but “help” you answer. Because I’m not sure there is a right answer.

    Whew. Great post, Ricardo!
