Blogging Tips & Business Tips

This is a guest post by Ben Farmer from Ivory Design.

Memes are created, appreciated and adored by all kinds of people. Business owners and online marketers love them because they’re a great way of enticing traffic to your site: legions of geeks like me will waste hours (literally hours) giggling at and sharing these weird little pictures we find funny.

Graphic and web designers love them the way head chefs and food critics secretly love McDonald’s: after a lot of hard, carefully thought out work, goofing off with a picture of a crazy dog with the caption “ermahgerd” is junk food for the eyes. And the Internet using public loves them because most of them are brilliantly funny. Some border on Dadaists weirdness and some border on artistic genius, but they all give the same end result: me giggling in a very undignified way, before clicking “Like” or “Pin This”.

It’s not so easy as jumping on whatever bandwagon’s currently getting the most Pins or Re-tweets, however: there are a couple of guidelines you can follow to ensure that a geek like me will giggle at your meme rather than hate or, worse, ignore it.

Follow me, geekbaiters!

A Question: Why Outsource?

Setting: a young, strong dentist, who just opened his private clinic, arrives the day of a major snowfall.  Upon hearing the forecast the previous evening, he had groaned as he adjusted his alarm;  he would have to wake up 15 minutes early.  Before he begins his regular work day, he shovels the snow in front of his clinic, so his patients wouldn’t fall.   Then, he enters his clinic, flips on the “OPEN” sign and waits for business.

In a few weeks his business picks up.  He is booked solid.  A major snowstorm is on its way.  Will he do the shoveling now?

There is no feeling like finishing a post, you’ve spat all your words out onto the page and are ready to send it off to the world-wide web waiting for it to be judged by the discerning reader.

The greatest temptation of all at that point is to just publish that post and go downstairs to make a cup of tea (or vodka, whatever is your poison) but this is the very way to put people off reading your posts because without all the trimmings; your post is nowhere near meeting its true potential.

Here is a list of things that I do after the post is written to make it a more attractive proposition to the audience:

Deciding that you want to become a professional blogger is an exciting career step that can welcome you into a life of enjoying your occupation, maximizing your free time, and generating a very comfortable income all online.

You may quickly find, however, that just owning a blog is not enough to get you settled into a career as a successful blogger.

Of course, you do not have to have the goal of being a professional blogger in order for a blog to be a beneficial feature of your business activities. In fact, many companies are now integrating the use of blogs as a key feature in their larger promotional strategies.

Whether you want to generate your income purely from blogging or if you are using a blog as a support platform, it is essential that you learn to handle your blog well so that you can maximize its potential for growth and success.
