How they help retain reader’s attention, how it boosts SEO, how your image can rank in Google image search etc. But here’s the thing, creating the actual images is not all rainbows and unicorns.

Create a blog
Have you ever thought about being a blogger? It is cool right! And most times people get jealous of bloggers and aspire to be like them and that is why I will be teaching how to create a blog for free and make money. Many times I get a lot of messages from people on how they can start their own blog and definitely I would love to share with them but I believe it will be very long guide because potentially blogging is very easy and at same time complicated too so learning how to start a blog is not a big deal anyways. You might love to become a blogger maybe as a passion or to grow your business online. Before we get started I will love to ask a question. What is a blog? A blog (a truncation of the expression weblog) is a talk or educational site distributed on the Internet consisting of discrete, regularly casual journal style content sections (“posts”). Posts are normally shown backward sequential request, so that the latest post seems to start with, at the highest point … [Read more...] about How To Create A Blog For Free And Make Money
I hear a lot of talk these days about the benefits of blogging for small businesses. Sometimes it seems everybody these days is starting a company blog. If you're a small business owner and you haven't already started a blog, I bet you've at least considered it. Problem is, as many people as there are out there crowing and strutting over the success of their blog, there are just as many -- maybe even more -- grumbling about how their blog is a huge waste of time and energy that never produces any results. So, should you blog? On one of the forums I frequent, a new member recently asked if it was "worth it" to start a blog. This member noted there were already some blogs in their field, but none of them seemed to be doing all that well. They were concerned it might be a waste of time to try to stimulate reader interest in what could be a "dead" niche. Well, sure, it could be the other blogs aren't doing well because people genuinely aren't interested in the topic. On the other hand, it … [Read more...] about Should Your Business Start a Blog?
A client wants to develop a content strategy so they can rank for more keywords but isn’t sure if they can muster the resources to create a blog. Sound familiar? When budgets are tight, it’s often tempting to put more money behind your paid media campaigns; after all, you can actually see which ads and optimizations are generating the most revenue each month. Earned media is not so cut-and-dried. However, creating and developing blog content should be regarded as a long-term investment. And as any good financial advisor will tell you, it’s best to start saving early. There is evidence to suggest that investing in a blog today will pay dividends for years to come. Why should I have a blog? No matter if your website is focused on e-commerce, lead-gen or self-service, there is what I like to call a “finite keyword set” that constrains you, whether you realize it or not. This concept of a finite keyword set is dictated by the fact that you want to serve the … [Read more...] about Will my organic rankings suffer if I don’t have a blog?
I don't consider myself a real blogger. To me, real bloggers don't have jobs, they just get paid for writing about their opinions. Kinda like journalists. I'm just a small business owner that happens to blog on a few times a week. But since my source of income is my business blogging takes a back seat to business needs. Most small businesses can't afford to hire a full-time blogger or ghost writer so they have to work blogging into their many business-owner duties. And because those duties are so heavy on the business owner, blogging generally falls by the wayside as more pressing matters are attended to. Many small business owners are out there thinking "Blogging? That's just one more thing to add to my already over-booked work schedule. No thanks." I feel you. There is no doubt that sitting down to write a good blog post takes time. Add in artificial deadlines and blog posting schedules, that's why most small businesses simply don't do it. But blogging is an important aspect of … [Read more...] about How Small Business Owners Can Build a Blog Without Blowing the Business
