Having the right mindset before you start blogging

Having the right mindset before you start blogging is of high importance for you to succeed with your new business venture. Like anything in life you need to prepare yourself mentally and emotionally so you have the right mindset and the best chance, of you really succeeding with your blog. When you look at all professional sports people now days they have professional people helping them to achieve the best mental state so they can reach their highest standard that they can achieve. Wouldn’t you like someone like that to help you? Well as your probably just starting out you should keep an open mind and learn as you go. If you try something and it doesn’t work don’t get down on yourself, you should just look at it as a learning experience. The last thing you want to do is think that you can just come in straight away and make a killing the very first day you start your blog. Though some people will claim that they can do this the majority will take time, you need to build a relationship with your customer base so that they, have a trust in you as this will help when you promote a product to them.

Your customer base or your list is where most of your money will come from. So every time you submit an article to your blog or to social media you should always send it to your list so they can read it as well and when doing this you can also ask them to sign up to your social media accounts which at present is a very good way to rank your articles high in the search engines. After a while you can offer something for free as everyone loves stuff for free and this will build a re-pour with your list and then they will be more likely to buy products that you promote to them. I know people that send out emails everyday to their list, but you have to think if you received emails from the same person day in day out just promoting product after product are you going to buy them all or are you going to unsubscribe from their list. I know what I would do. So a good practice is to just do it every now and then so you don’t overdo it. With your list you want to keep building it as you go and a good way to do this is to use social media or offering something for free on social media.

If you offer something for free on say Facebook there is a really good chance of people liking and sharing your page. The more that your page gets shared or liked the better it will rank in the search engines giving you a better chance of building your list. When you offer something for free it only targets people that need it therefore you have a better chance of selling the product that you are promoting. People that will use it will join your list and then you can do you up sell of your product. Someone once told me that if somebody was going to buy your product they will do this with in the first 15 days. So when you set up your auto responder you need the follow up emails going out in this period so it is still fresh in their minds.

I think when you are just starting out blogging you should have a mentor and give what you are doing a chance and not give up after one set back. Be prepared to do at least 1-2 hours a day. If you can do more that’s great as what you put in is what you get out. So the more you are willing to put in the more you are going to get out of it. Have a clear goal in place and write it down on paper. You might reach your goal sooner or you might take longer to get there but that’s fine as in the end you still reached your goal. Food for thought: on average a millionaire fails 17 times before making it!
