Writing Blog Titles for News Aggregators and Search Engines

Published

on

trumanYour title and introduction paragraph are two of the most important aspects of your article. These are the major opportunities you have to lure the readers, as well as the search engines. Use this to your advantage in order to make the most out of your articles and gain the attention you desire.

When it comes to blogs, your content is likely to be shared on various media websites and aggregation services. Those that frequent these other sites and services will probably only see the title and introductory paragraph, so you need to ensure that these represent your article well enough to get readers to click through to your site.

A useful guideline is to keep your title under twelve words. This is just long enough for the average blog width, and just long enough for most media-sharing sites where your blog link is likely to be posted. Twelve words or less is also the right amount of words to include in a title without potential readers losing interest.

Here are a few places your title and introductory paragraph can be shared across the web:

Social Networks

Sites like Twitter and Facebook are great places for sharing content. When you or others post links to your blog on these sites, there’s often just enough room for your article title and a portion of introductory paragraph. While an image or video clip can sometimes be included along with your title and/or introductory paragraph, you can’t always rely on the visual stimulation of additional media to entice readers.

RSS Readers

Between computers and mobile phones, RSS readers are very effective ways in which readers can receive updates to all the blogs they follow. Yet the efficient use of space with RSS readers limits feeds to article titles and portions of the introductory paragraph. Make sure that your content stands out from the crowd

News Article Aggregators

Sites like Digg and Yahoo Buzz can be great ways in which readers can recommend your article for others to read. When they do so, they often utilize bookmarking tools directly from their browser. As the bookmarking tools pull data about your article from the title and the introductory paragraph, it’s important for you to make these as descriptive as possible.

Search Engines

Search engines like Google can bring a tremendous amount of traffic to your website. Make sure potential readers click on your search result by having a great title and an impacting intro paragraph, as these are the two primary portions of your article to be indexed and displayed for a typical search query. When a search engine indexes your website, the title and intro paragraph are mined and utilized for search query purposes, making these the two most important portions of your blog’s articles.

What Do You Sell and How Do You Sell It?

Published

on

One easy way to make money blogging is to get clear on calling folks to buy your stuff and hire you.

Invest in my blogging course.

Visit my blog for blogging ebooks and blogging audiobooks.

Advertise on my blog.

Paypal me.

See how easy?

I clearly call you to invest.

You invest.

Simply put, knowing what you sell and how you sell it increases your blogging profits because people respond to your energy.

Prior lines? Each feels clear and comfortable to me. I know what I offer. Of course I know how I offer it. How, meaning, how I feel offering.

Imagine feeling light, airy, calm, confident and detached as you call readers to buy or hire. Money feelings. Good.

But imagine feeling heavy, resistant, uncomfortable, awkward or embarrassed calling readers to buy or hire.

Your greatest pro blogging success occurs by shifting from heavy to light during money calls.

Or feeling light, airy, detached and clear on calls because you freely share what you sell and sell with clarity results in big blogging profits.

Audio Books

I note a spike in audio book sales and reviews. Of course I barely touched my audio books over 3 years. I generate almost completely passive income; the audio books sell themselves.

After seeing royalty payments recently I pondered the passive blogging income; I barely actively sell ‘em so the what and how seems non-existent. But detaching just lets what and how unfold gracefully and beautifully, resulting in virtually complete passive income.

This was from my trip to Bali.

Getting almost 100% clear on what and how results in ever increasing, passive profits.

Why?

Blogging is energy.

Blogging Energy

Imagine feeling clear on receiving money from someone. You just accept it.

A friend buys lunch. You cheerily accept.

Why?

Your energy dictates you clearly accept and enjoy the money or purchase.

Ditto for blogging income streams. Emit the same clear, relaxed, accepting, receiving energy. Money flows to you thru clear streams. Of course my audiobooks sell passively; I am clear on that channel.

Boosting your blogging profits requires you freely offer what you sell and sell from a clear, confident, abundant, knowing, detached energy.

Example; note how I include 1 or more calls to action for all blog posts and videos. I offer what I sell freely. My readers never need guess. Clarity. No hiding or awkwardness or discomfort. I am clear. I sell.

How do I sell? Of course, from a calm, clear, confident, knowing I am successful energy. Naturally, I sell and profit because my energy around what and how feels clear to me.

Next Level Profits

Profit like top bloggers in your niche.

Get clear on receiving money.

Visualize yourself owning ample money. Feel rich.

I enjoy counting money in mind so it feels real to me. Swiftly, I make money through iTunes, Bitcoin and Quora, as has been the case recently.

Bitcoin and Quora are neither directly related to blogging but so goes money; it cares not channels, it justs finds bloggers clear on receiving money. Plus my blogging related profits increase too.

Picturing your wealth serves you because what feels real in mind flows into your experience.

Money and worldly success find you through profitable ideas, people and circumstances.

Execute the ideas from a chill, relaxed energy. Profit.

Freely offer what you offer. Promote yourself through every blog post and video. Tell us what you sell; we want to buy it. Sell with clarity. Know success and profits are yours; promote with clarity, detachment and a knowing that you already have profits because mind owns profits.

Blogging Is Not That Hard for Mind Scientists

Every day, my email inbox delights me.

My visualization sessions yield fascinating, profitable opportunities.

Mind creates reality.

As within, so without.

Blogging is not that hard at all for bloggers who visualize success, who feel rich, who count their blogging wins and who keep things positive.

Success follows success-focused bloggers.

Profits follow rich-feeling, riches-seeing bloggers.

As within, so without.

Get clear on selling and receiving money.

Profit.

How to Be an Organized Blogger

Published

on

Do you feel 100% organized?

If so you are on the ball.

Awesome.

But if you need direction I have tips for you.

I sit in Manila now. I write my 2nd blog post today at the airport.

Bloggers success-focused make time to blog because this crowd organizes their blog and self effectively.

How to Be an Organized Blogger

I see my success vision. Being organized is easy.

Organizing your blogging day makes blogging easy. Imagine everything lining up perfectly. Welcome to my day.

No matter what happens I proceed from calm confidence.

Sound good?

Let’s dive in.

Invest Money in Blogging Resources

Invest money in my 11 Fundamentals of Successful Blogging Audio Course.

Live your dreams by organizing yourself effectively.

My course outlines 11 steps to follow to succeed. Feel organized, orderly and clear by following each fundamental. Easy peasy.

Imagine me laying out what you need to do to succeed with your blog. Doesn’t that feel good? Don’t you feel clear, confident and organized, knowing I give you 11 steps to succeed?

Blogging resources from top pros organize your thoughts, feelings and actions. Invest in my course. Buy a blueprint. Be organized.

Visualize Your Dreams

Dream big dreams.

Visualize your dreams to be organized.

Dreaming big dreams creates order in your mind. Thoughts flow smoothly, calmly and confidently to you. Imagine how organized you’d feel as thoughts flow smoothly through your mind.

Seeing your dreams in vivid detail alerts you; you have it. Dreams preview life experience.

Knowing your dream flows to you, you blog from an organized, calm, confident, detached, knowing energy.

Add as many details to your mental picture as possible. I make my vision feel real to be organized, efficient and effective.

Blog from a Calm, Detached, Knowing Energy

Everything is energy.

Organized bloggers blog from a calm, detached, knowing energy.

I am relaxed sitting in an airport in the Philippines now. No worry, no stress, no hurry, no disorganized, jumbled thoughts.

This was from my 5 week trip to Turkey.

how to be an organized blogger

Take a deep breath. Slow down. Calm down. Success finds you as you blog from an organized, relaxed energy.

Do Only a Few Things

I blog organized because my mind races not in 100 directions with 100 things to do.

I sell my course.

I sell my eBooks.

I sell my audio books.

I write blog posts, broadcast videos and comment on blogs.

Simple.

Easy peasy.

Bloggers organize their day effectively by doing only a few things.

No sense adding disorganized chaos by trying to master many disciplines. Impossible, anyway, because where your energy goes, grows. Give energy to 10 disciplines and none grow. Of course you become disorganized too, trying to wear many hats. But doing a few things only ensures you see rapid growth in those few areas.

This is why people call me the king of guest posting, the king of blog commenting and I landed a featured on John Chow Dot Com as a live video blogger to follow.

Care for Your Mind and Body

I do 90 minutes of yoga daily plus I exercise for 60 minutes daily.

Taking care of mind and body helps me be organized because feeling good leads to organization.

Highly successful bloggers take care of their mind and body to reach the top of their niche. Walk. Meditate. Do deep yin yoga.

Self care leads to self organization.

Beware Robotic Practical Tips

I am organized whether I check email once daily, once every 2 days or 30 times daily. Makes no difference. I am an energetic being of feelings, not a mindless robot.

Never organize your blogging day based on robotic, practical tips because said tips may not work for you.

Organize yourself and your blog by listening to your intuition before all else.

You may vibe with 1 or 4 of the above tips. Listen to the voice within. Take what works for you.

Get organized.

Observe Top Bloggers Closely

Top bloggers offer you clues for better organizing.

Some top pros only read 1-2 sentence emails and ignore all else. Doing so reduces all unclear noise in his inbox and keeps him organized.

I learned how to be organized by studying the most organized bloggers on earth; the big dawgs.

Learn from the best to be effective, efficient and organized.

Being an organized blogger takes practice but all practice leads toward greater success.

I never could circle the globe and succeed online if I was not organized.

Order your thoughts.

Order your feelings.

Organize your mind.

All begins from within.

Organizing begins with organized thoughts and feelings.

Feel good.

Enjoy the blogging ride.

Get organized.

7 Ways to Promote Your Blogging Course

Published

on

Have you invested in my blogging audio course?

Invest in it today.

I help you live your wildest dreams through blogging.

As I cruise 40,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean, I think of increasing blogging course sales by promoting effectively.

How you promote determines how you live.

How to Promote Your Online Course the Right Way

Since I promote my stuff effectively I enjoy life offline as I circle the globe, living in places like Thailand, Fiji, Bali and Costa Rica for months at a time.  I feel clear on the course and think abundance by promoting the course in multiple spots. Exposure and sales find the course and me, allowing me to be a full time blogger who travels the world.

Customers found my course through a few methods.

Increasing sales, course awareness, happy, successful bloggers and boosted rep all flow to successful promoters.

Plus you generate passive income. Not bad for someone who travels like I do.

Let’s dive in.

1: Embed Code

I embed code to promote my course sometimes.

Embed codes offer graphic, easy to purchase reminders because a picture and buy button speaks a powerful message.

Folks love images. We think in pictures.

This was from my 2 month trip to Oman.

how to promote your online course

Buy buttons give customers clear instructions.

Embed code promoting your course at mid point or post blog post.

Tap into this graphic, clear course promoting method.

Add embed codes to sidebars for even greater course exposure. People scan sidebars, spot your course and more eyeballs feast on your offering.

2: Email Signature Link

I link to my blogging course via email signature.

Seize this high traffic source and boost sales in the process.

Drop a tidy link below your email avatar. Drip the link with sugary benefits. Or just name the course. Either approach works.

People hop in and out of email all day. Grab maximum exposure through email signature links.

Add a tiny, eye-catching image to boost your course advertising with an attractive visual reminder.

3: Broadcast Live and Link In

I promote my blogging course via live and link.

I broadcast live on Facebook regularly. Sometimes I promote the course directly. Other times I tackle a blogging topic and link to my course.

Live video wins now and in the future. Humans glue themselves to their phones for live video.

People build deeper bonds with human, genuine bloggers who employ live video. Puts a name with a face. Or reminds readers you are more than just words on a screen.

Broadcast live frequently. Link to your blogging course frequently.

Get clear on promoting by showing up.

4: Pin on Twitter

Use the Pin feature to Pin your course in the highest profile spot in your Twitter stream.

Increase sales by promoting courses in front of prying Twitter eyes.

I see sweet engagement via Likes and Retweets using this approach.

Easy as pie.

Add an image for a promotional boost.

Toss in tags to target customers and increase course sales.

Use as many characters as possible. Set up the tweet with a strong benefit. Increase course exposure.

5: Promote Via Warrior Forum Sig File

I link to my course via Warrior Sig File.

AKA; tag line or bio line.

Easy way to increase sales. Of course Warrior drives heavy, targeted traffic for generous bloggers like myself.

Help people freely on forums to get more eyeballs on your sig file.

6: Post Inspirational Updates to Facebook Groups

I share inspirational tidbits to Facebook Groups with my course link and travel photos.

Facebookers love these punchy, powerful updates. Plus I grab more blogging course exposure.

Share uplifting content. Be positive. Inspire people.

Link to your blogging course.

Promote only in Groups aligned with your niche. Make every video and course link count.

7: Flesh Out 1 Section Via Blog Post or Guest Post

I broke down each of the 11 fundamentals of successful blogging via individual guest post on Blogging Tips.

Writing posts designed to flesh out course mods is a simple way to promote the blogging course.

Folks enjoy your breakdown, need to learn more and click the course link.

Mindset Stuff

Sell more courses by focusing on successful sales.

Visualize yourself selling courses and receiving money to sell courses and receive money.

Allow the image to feel real in mind. Tap into your emotions. Paint a mental picture rich with details.

As within, so without.

Course sales flow to bloggers who think, feel and act wealthy.

Profit through the above promotional channels.

See riches in mind to make money blogging through your course.
