Having a blog, and maintaining a blog, is imperative if you expect to succeed online in your network marketing business. So, you must have a network marketing blog! That’s great but what do you do with it and how do you make money from it? That is exactly what I am going to show you today. I will share with you 3 EXTREMELY SIMPLE tips that you absolutely need to (and can) implement immediately.
TIP #1: Keyword Optimization: Write your articles with a purpose. Some will say otherwise but I’ve noticed that many network marketing blogs out there generate the majority of their traffic through forums (which is also a good strategy), I believe that you need to get visitors to your blog through organic search – specifically from Google. You need to write articles about keywords that people are searching for. The tool that I use to choose my keywords, because it’s inexpensive and takes all the guess work out of the process, is Market Samurai. You can Check Out Market Samurai HERE.
A good way to generate traffic is to write “reviews” of various home based business opportunities. The newer, the better. I would not try to tackle Amway right away because it will take you a long time to get a first page ranking. For example, I was one of the first to write a review of One24. I have been steadily getting about 50 search engine visitors a day to my site JUST FROM THAT ONE ARTICLE, which in turn generates leads for me! Here’s an article I wrote on a strategy for how to select companies to write about: How To Get Top Google Rankings. The keywords that I will always use when writing a review article are as follows: companyname, companyname review, companyname scam, companyname compensation plan, company owner’s name.
Tip #2: Opt-In Box: You must have an opt-in box on your site, and it should be positioned “above the fold” so it can be seen by visitors without having to scroll down. The purpose of the opt-in box is to capture leads name and email address so that you can build your list. What you provide back to the lead in return for their name and email address can be a newsletter, free video series on recruiting, network marketing training, your own product…the list goes on. Just make sure that you are providing value back so that you develop a positive relationship with your list.
Tip #3: Affiliate Banners: You need to have banners on your blog (the right side of your blog is recommended as it’s been proven to convert better than the left side for some reason) for some of the affiliate programs that you are involved in. We all want to sign people up in our primary business, but as crazy as it sounds most visitors will not sign up for your primary business. Network marketers are always looking for productivity tools and training though. These are the types of products to promote with banners on your site. Personally, I change mine up from time to time depending on how well they are converting and I would recommend that you do the same.
Conclusion: There you have it. Start implementing these simple strategies immediately to start driving traffic to your network marketing blog and to convert that traffic into sales and income!
