Are you a successful blogger yet?
Everyone is looking for loopholes to climb to the top in their blogging career, but only few bloggers are truly enjoying today.
Others are struggling to drive traffic, while a host of others can’t even generate $100 per month from their blogs. But all that can be changed if you consider these 5Cs of blogging and take actions on them.
The 5Cs of Blogging are:
Create – Command – Creativity- Communication – Conversion : by Michael Chibuzor
Does it make sense to you? All right, let’s break the Cs down to know how they can apply to our blogging success. Are you ready?
Blogging is all about creating exceptional contents for readers and target audience. You need to create a post that’s truly helpful. You can’t continue to churn articles and expect good results. There should be uniqueness in the craft.
Before you create a post, ask yourself what information you’ve in mind and wants to share with others. Are you motivated to read the article or ignore it? It’s a vital question to answer before jamming the keyboard with your fingers.
If you have nothing to say on your post, then take a walk or visit a close friend. I’m sure you’ll get post ideas by chatting with people. The first “C” is to create fresh, insightful and valuable posts. Can you do that?
How can you command readers to do whatever you want? It’s so unfortunate how newbie bloggers are trying to be like professionals bloggers. In order words, they are imitating them.
You can’t be the best by imitating someone. Yes, you can learn from others; read their blogs, buy and study their products but don’t try to be like them. You’ve been equipped to succeed at any project no matter how difficult it seems. The journey might be slow, but the time of waiting would definitely pay off greatly.
To command and build a tribe with blogging, have a way of addressing a problem. It’s no longer providing solutions that counts in today’s blogging world, the solution has to be authentic and presented with style.
If your blog can solve problems, there are 10k blogs with better solutions – the only thing your competitors can’t replicate is your “voice.” It does take time to discover how unique your voice it, but constant practice will get you there.
How can you make a difference in the world, when all you do is approach a topic in the same manner like your friends? It’s totally unacceptable and I admonish you to become creative today. Did you see the creativity in the post you’re reading?
The headline was crafted like none other. Off course, the topic I’m writing about has been written by more savvy bloggers and copywriters.
But I decided to add creativity to the mix and now, you’re enjoying it. “The 5 Cs of blogging that makes you successful” is what piqued your mind – you clicked and read.
That’s creativity at work – now, pick a common topic and add spices to it. Your readers would fall in love with you for going the extra mile.
The essence of setting up a blog is to build a community. Don’t be moved by the hype online, it’s actually difficult to make money from blogs without attaining a level of communication (engagement).
Blog readers are so careful with their money, and will not buy from a stranger. Without effective communication, you’re a stranger to your audience. You may have a beautiful wordpress theme, a unique style of writing but without communicating your brand, your voice and the solutions you’ve, nothing works – trust me!
And communication is a two-way system. Readers and prospects must talk to you. You can initiate communication by asking questions in your posts.
Ask readers to do something and give a feedback. The same concept goes for email marketing. Subscribers must reply and talk to you. A lot of bloggers don’t talk or communicate with people – they don’t even reply to comments. It’s the quickest way to blogging DOOM. Start talking today.
This is the point where you can earn passive income from your blog.
The 5Cs of blogging success is arranged in chronological other. You’ve to create first, before you can command. And once you’re an authority, the communication line will be initiated and your readers will start talking.
Don’t try to sell a product or recommend an affiliate offer or service if you’re yet to build trust with target audience. Conversion is what we consistently pursue, but it’ll be futile if engagement is absent.
People who make money from their blogs have mastered these 5Cs and today, we reckon with them. It takes time, sacrifice and guts to climb to the top in your blogging career. But now, you’ve been equipped with the right tools and insights to sail smoothly.
