You worked hard on your blog, dotted your I’s and crossed your T’s. You go back over your masterpiece and think to yourself “Man, I’m a genius!” But have you really done all you can to make your blog stand out from the crowd? Have you studied up on what makes a business blog become a winner? Check out the five things I have listed below that should get your blog rise above the rest!
Write Content Frequently!
The most important aspect of writing a blog that you want to generate an income with is to write frequently quality content that people are going to want to read. It doesn’t have to be a Rembrant of blogs but it better be something that looks good, has no spelling and grammar errors and is keyword rich. These traits are really what make or break a blog in the readers eyes. If your work is littered with little spelling errors and looks like you rushed through it just to get it done, its going to look like that. So, take your time, reread your content once you’re finished and reread again!
Write To A Targeted Audience!
You want to write your content with a targeted audience. Think about who will want to read your blog. What type of niche did you choose and is it specific enough? It’s important to narrow your niche down to one specific topic rather than focusing on a broad topic. If you’re writing about food and dining you might want to pick a topic like “Italian Fine Dining” versus just “Italian Food.” Keep your niche on topic and try not to pick one that’s too broad. Your readers will be people who are looking for something specific in your blogs related to a broad niche.
Keep Your Content Engaging!
When writing your blog you want to write for your audience not for yourself. Now this seems a bit strange but it’s the reality. If you write your blog the way myour readers would want to read then you’re ahead of the game. This means write like you are talking to them instead of at them. Writing engaging content that readers will feel is geared towards them and is helpful will encourage them to read more. Your headline is one aspect of your blog that most definitely is one of the most important traits your work should have. If your blog headline is weak and not niche specific your chances of your reader wanting to go further diminish considerably!

Seek Help When Help Is Needed!
One of the worst things you can do when writing your business blog is to try and go it alone. I’ll be honest with you, it just doesn’t work. There are so many different aspects of blogging to learn that to try and figure it all out by yourself is going to be a daunting task. So, what do you do? Well, ask questions or course! If you join one of the many niche groups you will find that people are more than happy to help with writing techniques, social media, WordPress, you name it! So, if you are writing solo you really need to locate a writing support or blog writing group in your particular niche. Picking a niche that is popular sounds enticing but it may not be what you want in the long run due to oversaturation or you may eventually lose interest. Brainstorm with yourself and other connections to find a niche and content writing tips to get you on the path to success in your blog endeavors.
Never Rush Your Content!
Finally take your time writing your blogs. I know all of these tips are basic advice for anyone looking to start a blog business but think about it. If you are starting out you really need to focus on the basics of blogging which in the long term are going to be what makes your blog successful. If you focus too much on how to promote at the early stages of your venture I guarantee you will feel overwhelmed and very well may just give up completely. I don’t want to see you go that route. And taking your time to write quality content is going to be your best way to become a successful blogger. Writing articles that are engaging with a decent length and written well are going to be the best way to gain traffic to your blog and website. So, take your time and write naturally.
