1.   LEAD YOUR AUDIENCE HUB WITH AFFECTION 

You can skyrocket your business when you see your blog as a human similar to your own persona. It’s a brand infused with your own personality. Be a leader for readers visiting on the blog with your helping presence. Build a warm & special relationship with your readers by replying to their comments on your blog and social channels.

Try to fulfill their expectations & needs for which they visit you with love, respect, and devotion. These tips can help you out:

#1 Ask questions about their struggle on your Facebook groups.

If you haven’t joined highly engaging FB groups yet then grab a valuable list here. Search in those groups for phrases like “struggling with”, “need help”, “do you know” and share your helpful thoughts to solve their problems. Don’t forget to provide a link to your resource in groups also with a brief description of yourself.

#2  Energize with perks to fuel their creativity

Use the google search bar for new trends in blogging often. Share with your audience about any helpful tool or app, new free course or resource you found and products you have created too. If any of your followers have great stuff to help other new bloggers than share without thinking.

Let’s take an example of Elna Cain of Twinsmommy. She has a separate page named free stock photos. On that page, she has written a beautiful post about 18 places for Free girly and styled stock photos.

brand-new-blog-secrets4

 

 

In this post, she generously redirects you to 18 outstanding female blogger’s resources to sign up for free stock photos. That’s what we want to share with you. If you have made links with your audience then strengthen them up with sharing their work too.

2.   EASE YOUR AUDIENCE VISIT TO STAY LONG

Evoke greed of your readers to explore more & more by making simple navigation throughout your blog. Use related posts wisely to direct them towards other useful content on your blog. Double the chances to make visitors stay longer by upgrading sidebar.

Use your ABOUT PAGE to showcase your portfolio (if any) as well as popular posts. You can use it for sales or as a trip wire also by placing digital products in the sidebar.

Avoid using so many categories. As a new blogger, your categories probably contains only 2 or 3 posts. So, go without them in the beginning stage.

Be newsworthy & publish valuable quality content on a regular basis. It must inspire viral sharing or natural linking with others.

The best trick which we adopted on smarty blogger is not to publish all the posts at the time of launch. We kept 6 posts in a draft for publishing consistency. If you are not aware of how to schedule posts in WordPress then here is a snapshot to consider. You can choose any date & time with publishing option in WordPress.

brand-new-blog-secrets5

 

3   PLAN YOUR EMAIL STRATEGY

Decide the theme of your emails. It simply means to create a series of emails you want to send out to your subscribers. Your theme can be free downloads, worksheets, popular blog posts, failures with solutions, etc.

Setup your welcome email series:

Welcome email series is just to get friendly with your subscribers. Make them feel that you are their best helper and information resource in needy moments. You can include testimonials, takeaways, quick tips, your brand story or freebies. Integrate any content that matches & fulfill your brand’s standard.

The best way to learn is by subscribing your fav ones in your niche and some of the experts also. Then study deeply their emails received in your inbox. Take short notes and note down key points you liked and clicked in the mind first. Then brainstorm your own ideas to create one for your blog promotion merged with your brand’s image.

Don’t forget to create a Thank You page because it gives you another chance to divert the reader towards any offer you want (paid or free). In simple words increases the chances of the sales.

4    BUFFER OUT OTHER’S RESOURCES

List out some of the experts as well as other bloggers in your niche you come in contact while your online research or social media channels. Your followers can also be on this list. Don’t choose randomly, try to include those who have a lot of valuable content to help your readers.

6    HOST A CONTEST OR CHALLENGE

Email marketing is the most pocket-friendly and liberal tool to increase your traffic as well as income. So, what are your email marketing fears? Jump to the section you want to read first.

1  HOW TO SEND EMAILS (which service provider to choose)

You don’t have to spend huge money in your initial days but looking and choosing free service like MailChimp is also a good option if you’re serious to grow your blog business. In the beginning days, it’s sure that we are not friendly with email writing, setup and terms like tags, automation, triggers, webhooks, labels, integration, etc.

So, look for the service provider who offers these basic features:

Videos & tutorials for the whole setup

Reasonable as well as affordable pricing

Offers mobile responsive templates to choose

Free trial to understand the tools

Email automation

Reports tracking

Customer support quality

If your service provider is offering all these features then go ahead with it. We recommend Activecampaign and Convert kit as we use and love their service. Don’t go with our words and experience by signing up for a free trial by yourself to see the features in working mode.

2  WHAT TO SEND

When we sit down to craft our emails or email series what happens most of the times? Mostly blinking cursor, blank screen and a lot of nervousness. Forget those old days talk and start fresh with tried and tested emails like below examples.

mom-blog-business-life15

Welcome Your guest

A guest offers email when gets assured to receive valuable content and resources from you. So, a subscriber is ready to engage with you when signup first. It’s proven fact that the very first email you send to welcome your guest decides the relationship you’re going to build.

Here’s an example of a perfect welcome message:avoid-email-marketing-fear9

avoid-email-marketing-fear8

The next email to welcome must be sassy, interactive and introductory. In simple words, tell a little about yourself and ask a little about your reader to make your communication interactive and engaging. It’s true that email marketing strategy + content is almost as time investment as your blog. That’s why we can say that running an email series is like running a blog. To cut off that hustle and save your precious time Meera Kothand has designed some ready to use templates you can use in your initial stage of email marketing.

3  WHAT PEOPLE WILL THINK?

This is the most common fear a new blogger faces once in the blogging journey. But when your brand new blog business has all the basic elements in order then the fear of others harsh response vanish out. We know that you can’t wait to be perfect but sound blog setup eliminates 60% failure chances.

To tackle the stress of response your emails will get, take care of these bite-sized tips:

Send emails from a custom domain.

Use valuable headline + subject line.

Highlight the benefits.

Send at an optimal time for the maximum open rate.

Avoid using spammy words.

Colors and graphics must comply with blog branding.

Design mobile phone optimized emails.

Sell your own products or affiliate products wisely.

avoid-email-marketing-fear45

4  SMALL LIST OR NO LIST

In the facebook groups we’re engaged, bloggers ask several times that should they send emails even their list is small? Tell us who starts with the large following from day 1? Everybody has to work hard for gaining the trust of their audience. Can you get 1000 signups overnight? Simply No!

List surging always takes time but the speed depends on your efforts and smart resources used. We know that when you try to learn about any topic online in blogging industry different views and contradicting theories came in your way. Small list or no list doesn’t mean that you have no need to design emails or email strategy. It means we have to start at sub-zero.

We mentioned above the email marketing strategy because if you’re keen to have a big list before blog launch then try some tricks to achieve your target like:

Landing Page On Website:

This is how a perfect landing page looks like:

avoid-email-marketing-fear7

Before one or two months of launch, design an exclusive Homepage or you can say the landing page. This one page will automatically grow your list while you’re busy in your blog setup or launch preps. Sounds interesting? Let’s see what it needs?

STEP I

A Domain Name + Hosting Service like Siteground + A Theme (free like Airi, Sydney and paid like Isabelle, Maggie, Victoria) + Basic plugins if using WordPress.

Wix and Squarespace are also good options if you can invest in your initial days and don’t want to indulge in technical and setup chaos.

STEP II

Choose an email service provider like Active Campaign or Convert kit. If you need free then Mailchimp and Mailerlite are good options. But paid services like Active Campaign or Convert kit are best for bloggers because their automation, as well as autoresponders, work for you as a virtual assistant. Create a welcome email + email series to share your worthy blogging ideas or coming articles. Send some more free downloads to build credibility.

[click_to_tweet tweet=”List surging always takes time but the speed depends on your efforts and #smart resources used via @smarty_blogger” quote=”List surging always takes time but the speed depends on your efforts and #smart resources used.” theme=”style4″]

STEP III

Design a free resource your audience needs or surely want to download. You can create an introductory resource for your coming paid digital product too. Then choose maximum 2 or 3 social media channels with Pinterest one of them. Use your brand name and branding elements to setup profile. Add your freebie link to your social profile section.

STEP IV

Design your homepage as the landing page of your freebie. Schedule it’s sharing to your social channels with free tools like Buffer, Hootsuite, IFTTT, Planoly for Instagram. Create 6 pins for your freebie and schedule them for daily share.

Hurray! You’re ready to surge your list before launching your biz.

5  NO PRODUCTS TO SELL

Why fear about having zero products at the beginning of your biz. We’re sure that you’re not setting up blog business only for money, right? You have designed a whole blog with content, graphics, free downloads, opt-ins, landing pages. That takes uncountable sleepless nights and tons of efforts and determination. Think about how creative you’re? 

Don’t indulge in creating own digital products in the beginning days of blog launch. Why?

Less blog traffic.

It takes a lot of research & time.

Needs investment too.

Product failure can make you stressed.

Needs separate marketing.

Sales funnel and tracking.

For making money in beginning days, we can do affiliate marketing. It simply adds money to your wallet and builds a relationship with experts whose products you endorse. In simple words, you get double profit(money by earning commission & influencer outreach).

[convertkit form=865750]

6  WRITING TONE

Being a new blogger you can share your own hustle and personal stories to build a relationship with your readers. Your friendly writing tone makes the reader feel bonded with you. If you write as you speak then the formal feel doesn’t sound in your writing. Consider adding some sauce in your email content writing with the ingredients below:

Simple words & short sentences.

Don’t bet your message feel with grammar.

Try to use active voice in writing.

Make it convincing with examples.

Ask questions for engagement.

Use interactive tools like polls, surveys or quiz.

Evoke emotions with great headlines(Grab our free 14-page ebook “VIRAL HEADLINE FORMULA”)

mom-blog-business-life40

7  WHAT IF PEOPLE UNSUBSCRIBE?

The biggest fear beginner blogger goes through while starting list building. Always remember that blog is a business because you’re investing in it, putting efforts to grow it for making an income for living. So, to overcome the fear for unsubscribers find out the possible reasons and ways to eradicate them.

The main 3 reasons found behind unsubscription by experts research are:

1 Sending emails more frequently(means too many emails)

2 Content without any correlation.

3 Pitching only product sale in every mail.
