Rock Your Brand Podcast

Today I’m’ gong over the exact roadmap that I would use if I was starting from scratch. There were a lot of things I’m teaching you today that I have done in the past and would do again in a heartbeat because they work! Get ready to listen and apply what you learn to your own business. Let’s get right to it! 

 

If you haven’t downloaded a copy of my Brand Creator’s book, you need to get one. Head over to brandcreatorsbook.com as I talk a lot about the methods taught in my book, and it’s definitely a game-changer. 

How I Would Start Over From Scratch 

 

I actually start over from scratch quite often with all of our new businesses, and I follow these same principles that I’m teaching you today. There are three main things you’ll do to start, 

 

  1. Subniche down in a market
  2. Find out if there Is there enough traffic in that sub-niche
    1. Ad networks
    2. Affiliate products
    3. Private affiliate products 
    4. Digital products
    5. Physical products
  3. Can you make money in that market? Below are a few of the most ways to monetize a blog to help give you some inspiration.

 

Your Website Is Your Home Page 

 

You need a home base where all of your content will reside and where the traffic will be coming. Spend a day going through domain name ideas, choose one, buy it and go out and get your hosting. Then it’s time to start building your WordPress website. If you’re using Host Gator or Bluehost, they have a quick process. You’ll add in your logo and a few plugins to help with SEO, social sharing, and an image compressor. But other than that, just keep it simple to start. You can always improve on things later.

Outline Your First 10-20 Blog Posts 

 

You’ll start by building your content out. I would start with 2-3 articles a week to get the ball rolling to just get them out there. Post about your blog content on social media to get them to head over to your website. You’ll start by writing about the following categories:

  • How-to Articles
  • Ask Commonly Asked QuestionsQuestions - they’re easier to rank for long-tail keywords
  • How-to Articles
  • Review Products - mention affiliate products that you could potentially get paid for. 

 

Use Pinterest To Boost Your Blog Posts 

 

Every single blog post that I create, I would make a Pinterest image that goes within my blog post and also starts pinning on Pinterest that directs to my blog posts. 

Create a Facebook Fan Page

 

When I start to build my email list, I need to be able to have access to Facebook ads, so go ahead and create a Facebook page, so you have it ready. You can also repurpose your blog content to add to your Facebook page. 

Build Out Your Email List

 

Email about what you wrote on your blog and send them there to find your digital products and articles. It’s as simple as that.

Create a Digital Product 

 

Create ten blog posts that you could include in a book. Start by posting them on your blog, then compiling them to create an ebook that you could sell on your website. Create a lead magnet that you can drive people to sign up and promote your new product. This is a great way to start making money quickly.

 

Most of the time, I’m starting a site to build out for the long haul, so I’m not always focused on making money right away. However, if you see an opportunity, you should go ahead and create digital products. 

 

I would repeat this same process no matter the brand or niche that I’m in. 

 

My energy is focused on this exact strategy and nothing else! Stay away from shiny objects if you want to achieve your goal!  

Thanks For Being Here! 

This process doesn’t have to complicated. Once you have the direction of your niche, you just need to create your 30-day road map and continue on from there. 

 

Remember, I am here for you, I believe in you and am rooting for you. 

 

It’s time for you to take action and go rock your brand!
