Creating a Good Brand Online with Your Blog

Spread the love:

Bloggista.com started as a make money online blog, exploring different ways in making money online like affiliate marketing, paid reviews and advertising.

Then came the SEO madness where this blog was used to experiment getting traffic from popular searches, making it virtually a “no value” blog due to inconsistent contents.

It did generate “some money” in the process, however it was short-lived, and Bloggista.com lost its “identity.”

Right now I am embarking on re-branding this blog, focusing mostly on my favorite topics on business resources and tools like cloud computing and big data, applying blogging and social media engagement techniques I learned over the years to earn some followers and reach, targeting those who are new or aspiring bloggers either for personal or business purposes.

Moving on, the previous article discussed about the need to establish a personal blog brand, and build your brand online using social media. Once you already have a blog, it’s safe to say you’re a step closer towards the goals you have set as a blogger. The idea now is to improve your blog continuously. How can you do that?

First, your blog should be informative enough to both educate and entertain. Giving tips, trivia, and instructions are what keep the audience engaged with the blog.

Interweave the blog with personal experiences to tap the audience’s tendency to relate with articles built on emotions. However, keep in mind that it’s one thing to post occasional rants, but it’s another create an impression that you’re maintaining a “hate blog”.

Finally, the blogs must come on regular basis to get hold of readers. Finding that there is always something to wait from the blog will make your audience wanting for more.

Personal Blog Branding Using Social Media

Spread the love:

This is the first of three-article series about blogging and branding through social media engagement.

Why branding is so important?

A brand that is clearly identifiable is what every business needs. Some great examples are Apple, Samsung, Mercedes Benz, and even Dunkin Donuts. These brands catch almost everyone’s attention with a mere glimpse of their logos.

In a similar manner, bloggers (both aspiring and experienced ones) need to have a brand that is identifiable with them. It could be a signature style of writing or the blog name itself. Moreover, since a blog operates on the most global platform – the Internet – it becomes easier to communicate your personal blogging brand.

An effective way you can achieve personal blog branding is through social media. If you can establish online presence using social media, you can be sure many people can identify with you, your opinions, your personal views, or even some products and services you promote on your blog.

Online is the richest ground to nourish your blog and make it visible to your readers and visitors.

… and I’m still blogging.

In January 2008, I purchased this blog by “accident” – someone told me I can make money online and I need to purchase a webhosting with free domain name through his link so I can get a discount.

I didn’t know it was an affiliate link, I thought I was scammed, in a legit way, or vice versa, but man, I was so glad I got scammed that way.

So I blogged, and started my journey to that promise of “making money online”, to the point that I quit my freelance consulting gigs for almost 2 years.

Now, the money was gone, but that experience led me to learn new stuff like making your posts appear in Google’s top 10 search results, got paid in reviewing gadgets, started an online company hosting blogs and websites, established a startup “cloud” company, among other things, and most of all, I still got this beautiful domain name – bloggista.com.

I was a struggling blogger then, and still a struggling blogger now as I am not good at writing, my grammar is worse than yours, and I’m just too busy to spare some precious time blogging.

But it’s in my blood, so, my blogging journey continues.

Adelante!
