“7 Unstoppable Steps How to Get Leads With a Blog” written by Mike Marko.
Are you struggling to get leads for your personal business?
I get it. I was there. Over a year ago Bren and I were completely stuck… no traffic to our offer, no good leads, and almost no sales.
We were losing money.
Then I found the way on how to get leads and start to building our business using the internet… and generating consistent traffic. And that is by using a powerful blogging system.
7 Steps On How To Get Leads with Your Blog
I am going to show you the 7 steps to creating a blog post that will help you get the traffic you need to get sales. These are the same steps I use to rank the majority of our blog posts. First thing’s first… let’s find something to write about.
How to Get Keywords for Your WordPress Blog Post
The first step to building a WordPress blog post that will make money online, is to determine what you are going to write about… specifically what is the keyword phrase you want to write around. We talked about keyword phrases in the blog post, SEO Basics Tutorial for Beginners – Learn the Basics of SEO.
The following video talks about how you can find keywords that will help you get found on Google or other search engines.
As you can see in this video, it is pretty quick to come up with keywords to write around. I recommend coming up with one primary keyword phrase which you write around, and 1-3 secondary keyword phrases that you mention 1-3 times each within the blog post.
How to Create WordPress Blog Post Quickly and Easily
Most of the time, Bren and I start writing our blog posts on a Microsoft Word document. We’ll write it, and sometime email it back and forth, before dropped the blog post into our WordPress blogging platform.
As you can see in the video, it is pretty easy to create a blog post when you first start with a Microsoft Word document.
How to Hyperlink an Image in a WordPress Blog Post
People love to click images.
That’s why almost all (I may have forgotten a few) our images are clickable, where if you click them they take you to a different page. Some will take you to an offer, some to our free Bootcamp registration page, and others to our contact page.
It is pretty quick to make your images clickable, though many bloggers fail to take advantage of this basic human instinct. Watch the following video and make your images work for you.
As you can see, it’s pretty easy to make your images clickable and send your visitor to another page. Think through your end goal, and determine exactly where and why you want your visitor to go after clicking the image.
How to SEO Optimize Your WordPress Blog Post
This is probably the most important video in this series. If you want to know how to get leads with your blog, then you MUST watch this video. This is where I talk about how to make your blog post into a work horse for your website.
SEO’ing your blog is pretty easy. You just follow the basic steps and you’ll be well underway.
How to Insert a Video Into a WordPress Blog Post
Video is king in your blog. Bren recently wrote about the triangle of trust where you build confidence by sending your leads to your blog instead directly to your sales page. The video is there to help build trust, and help your readers get to know you better.
Don’t dismiss the power of video for your blog post. Not only does it help convert your traffic into leads and sales, but it also keeps your visitors on your page longer which reduces bounce rate. This will help improve the value your blog post has in the “eyes of Google”.
How to Schedule a WordPress Blog Post
You have probably heard Bren and I talk about the important of blogging daily. I can’t stress that enough. It both improves your value for Google, but also it gives you a consistent stream of content that your regular visitors will appreciate.
But I also understand it is very difficult to find time every day to blog… especially during vacations, etc. That’s why it is extremely important to create blog posts in batches and then schedule out when they are published.
Watch the video and learn how to schedule your blog post.
Now you are all set… you know the basics of how to get leads with your blog. It’s pretty easy.
But Wait… I Missed The Last Step
I rank a lot of our content high in Google, but there is one piece of the puzzle I haven’t mentioned it. I shared six videos showing you the fundamentals. But this may not have been as effective without using the blogging platform we use.
We have over 50 blog sites as part of our blog network. And from our experience, our team has learned to develop the superior blogging platform at IM Consultant Services. It has a lot of advantages such as
- It is inexpensive
- You didn’t have to worry about maintaining the site, and so less headaches,
- It has a membership site so you could sell your own products and make money directly from PayPal,
- It has capture pages so you can generate more leads,
- It came with free themes already integrated into the platform,
- It came with webinar software so you can promote & sell to groups of people at a time,
- It ranks in Google a lot easier than hosting your own site,
- It is self-hosted so you don’t have to be technically inclined,
- It has its own social media site integrated into the platform.
And there is a lot more advantages…
Normally a platform alone like this would cost $500 or more per month! Luckily, that isn’t the case here. To learn more about it click the button below.
