Every day there are more and more people creating a blog wanting to make a fortune out of it. So many are led to believe that opening a website or blog is all what it takes to be visible and attract readers. It can happen but you would need to spend a lot of time and money to make it happen. A website on its own, with only sales pitch or offers will lead nowhere. When starting with internet marketing you need to realize that opening a blog or website is similar to having a store without the heavy overhead costs. Starting with Internet is the same as opening a store in a remote location far away from the center, far from the hot buzzing places, with no advertising, no sign, no press, no nothing to let customers know that you exist. Would anyone really open a store under these conditions?
I guess not. The point is Internet business is no different from any other type of business. Without a proper e-marketing strategy you will not attract visitors to your store, customers will be passing by without noticing you, even if you have the best offers and products available.
So can you really make it happen? and what should you do to get noticed and move to the hot buzzing places. A blog is like any store unless people know you exist and notice you, they will never come and enter your store.
What does it take to get noticed?
Assuming your blog is ready to go, you have done your research, know why you are there, your sales funnel contains the products or services you are going to sale and promote, and your main blog - Central Hub - have at least 10 to 15 entertaining, enlightening and educational articles you need to work on a strategy that will expose your content and attract potential customers.
One way of doing it is to use social media marketing and focus on syndicating your content among the various social media channels. The process is called Content Syndication. and is defined as follow by Charles Heflin and Thomas Rozof at Social Media Science:
