How to Keep Content Reader-Friendly

This is one of the biggest emphases given in all my training in blogging…indeed in any business.  Take care of your customers…in Blogging, that means learning how to keep content reader-friendly.

These are some thoughts from when I had first begun my blog:

I have learned so much from my mentor Bo Tipton… The training I am getting is absolutely awesome!  And you can get it too…for the low monthly cost of $6.95…check it out here.

My blog is progressing, and believe me, I have no prior experience in building a website.

Still, I have so much to share with folks. In my 70 years I have accumulated a lot of tips for living creatively, being a lifelong learner, and becoming all we can possibly be. I figure I am about 2/3rds through this part of my eternal adventure of development, and want to share some of what I have learned, and am still learning.  Age is just a number, and has no meaning at all for me.

The Training There Is Awesome

I said I am no web designer. Still I have a blog, it is looking better and better, and it is costing me a pittance compared ($49/month) to what it could to get this training on how to do it.

There are three keys that I have learned so far: Keep My Focus, Do The Work and Remember Why I Am Doing It.

Keep My Focus

means not getting distracted by shiny objects or get-rich-quick schemes. No procrastination. Set a schedule of working at this 20-30 hours a week, and stick to it. Set a goal for blogging and stick to that!

a home blogging business takes time and dedicationDo The Work means that this is not a done-for-you thing

I am responsible to do what I am being trained to do.

The courses are set up in a series of lessons, with bite-sized steps to take. It is all doable. I am responsible to do it!

All over WA is that it takes a few months to start to get rankings, and to have traffic, never mind actually get a paycheck! I am 1.5 months into this now. It steady dedication and some hard work. I have 37 posts on my site, and growing each week, bit by bit. I am getting ready for traffic, by honing my content to make sure it is reader-friendly.

How To Keep Content Reader-Friendly

My blog exists for a reason…it is to help my readers out with a challenge, or question, or problem.  When you give solutions to problems, you can make money.  When you put out information that isn't relevant to something that matters to a reader, you don't.

I need to make sure my blogs are full of good content. I need to make sure they stay on topic, and really answer to the reason why my reader is even there looking. I need to make sure they are attractive, and inviting.

I have been doing this, almost every day. I have gone back and reworked my earliest posts, as I have learned more. I am getting ready for traffic by following the training steps.

our reader is our customerThe Law of Attraction – Energy Focus

One key concept we discussed today is that our focus brings about the results. I think this is the law of attraction at work. Thoughts are energy, and create outcomes. When we focus on an outcome, and give it energy and work at it, that is when we get the results we are looking for.

reader-friendly content on your blog attracts and retains customersOne think I learned very recently is a formula for a good blog…This formula is the key to how to keep content reader-friendly.…it needs to state

  • the problem the blog is about
  • the solution
  • the benefits to the reader in implementing the solution
  • and a call to action

This will help my reader focus, too. He will stick with my post because I am addressing what he is looking for. He will stay because I have a solution for him, and even let him know the good it will do him.

The call to action is key. How many times have you read a good idea, one that may even help you out in some way if you were to do it, and then forgot about it, or just failed to do anything about it. I learned how we need to encourage our readers, I learned, by telling them to go ahead and do what we are suggesting.

If the solution and benefits I am offering make sense for my reader, I want him to take action to get those benefits!

sweet spot for blog length for SEOToo Many Words Does Not Help

All that great content should ideally be in the range of 1000 to 1200 words, for Google to really like it, I learned. I have to confess some of my posts were even longer than 2500 words..

So I put that new learning into effect.

I realized I could put my content broken down into a couple of posts, instead of cramming it all into one.

Not only is that more reader-friendly, but Google likes it better, so that will help my rankings in a few more months.

I made sure that I broke down my posts into snippets, too. People today are used to short tweets, not long paragraphs. Now that is what I aim for.

This is quite an adventure. I just started WA six weeks ago. ago, and the training is awesome. The community support is incredible. The action steps are doable and simple to master, bit by bit.

What about you? Are you thinking you want to start a home business? Will that fit your lifestyle and business aims?

Are you willing to learn and to be coached? Are you willing to do the work?

    Hi, Annie. Being a member of WA for not quite 3 years now I can attest to all of the great things that you mentioned about the training program in this article. This includes the tremendous depth of educational training, tools to build a website and the large community which in my opinion makes WA stand out among any other comparative program within the industry.

    Yes, in order to create success, a person must WORK at developing his/her online business. Unlike so many other fraud programs that promise to naive people the allure of making money quickly, WA preaches the exact opposite. A person reaps what he/she sows. One must learn to put into a business if he/she eventually expects anything to come out of it!

    Unless a person is willing to roll up his/her sleeves and grow his/her website by the continued addition of new content articles, marketing out the articles online through different platforms, striving to continue his/her education as well as engaging in conversation with people who are willing to act as mentors, nothing will happen for that individual.

    Putting off until tomorrow, (or the next day after that) what could be done today, in otherwords, procrastination is the #1 enemy of a business owner. Constant attention to the details of one’s online business is the key to success.

    As you stated as part of the title to your excellent article, Annie, one has to “work at it” regarding the development of a person’s online business. Nothing will happen positively by magic!

    Dear Annie,

    Great post and I got new insights reading your blog. I learned a lot when you said “I need to make sure my blogs are full of good content. I need to make sure they stay on topic, and really answer to the reason why my reader is even there looking. I need to make sure they are attractive, and inviting.” Keep up the great work.

    Your Friend,
    Paul

    • Hi Paul,
      Being mindful that the only reason to write a blog is to communicate on what matters to my readers really helps to personalize this business! Even online, it’s about relationships and building trust!

    Annie,

    Your post is packed with tons of great information. Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to learn. I had to laugh when you wrote, “I have to confess some of my posts were even longer than 2500 words.” That is great, I know I struggle sometimes to meet the 1000 words.

    Building a business online is not an easy thing to do by yourself. But having a platform that you can learn from makes a whole difference to your business.

    The Internet is changing constantly, and what may have worked in the past may not work today, so having the continuous training that you mention will help to grow a successful business. Good to know that you are a part of a community that is there to assist you along the way.

    Starting a blog and building a business with Affiliate Marketing is what I will recommend to anyone that is starting out on the Internet, so you are right on track. It is becoming more and more necessary by big companies to include Affiliate Marketing as part of their business and growth. Thank you for this insight.
