Why you should have a blog?

Why have a blog? To earn an income online – or – simply to have fun. The choice is yours.

The next question or problem you face is what is the best way to build a blog – a critical issue if you are not an IT person.

And, it is easy to set up!

BUT,  before you jump in and contract for a flashy, super duper website that has all the bells and whistles you have to make some other decisions first.

Answer any or all of these questions
• What do you need a website for?
• What’s its purpose?
• Is it about information?
• Is it for landing pages only?
• Is it a site for promoting products (e.g. Clickbank products)
• Will you be inserting Adsense as part of your site monetization program? (don’t build a site just for Adsense – Google won’t be friendly)
• What is your budget? – there will be monthly fees (e.g. ranging from $6 -$30 a month)

Other issues impacting on website construction choices
• Domain Name
• Do you know html, CSS, FTP?
• How will you get your content?
• External and internal linking
• Will you need to include graphics/images
• Does it need to be able to store PDFs, audio/video files for others to download?
• Can you write good sales letters?
• Keyword research
• SEO
• Niche marketing
• Design and layout (the “look and feel”)

AND, last, but not least – will you be maintaining the site yourself or paying for it to be done by someone else.

If the latter, that’s easy – if it’s you, then can you put the time into it to make it worth your dollar investment.

Blogs and Websites for internet marketing do not need to be expensive and flashy – such as would a site that promotes fashion, movies, cars and so on.

DECISION TIME!
When you collate your answers to the above questions, then you can look at hosting programs and software that will:
1. Do what you can’t
2. That allow you to do what you are able to (and thus save)
3. That are relatively easy to use
4. That have great support – easily accessible and reasonable response times (you would be surprised how hard it is to find real “contact us” pages on some sites – Google included)
