One of my favorite ways to add quality, topic related content to a blog is with PLR. If you don’t know what PLR is, let me fill you in on this wonderful little thing. As a Business Coach and in my Free Email List Building Mini-Course, I talk about this and help understand the valuable uses for you own particular business.

PLR content is created specifically for those who don’t have the time, skills or desire to create their own content on a consistent basis. You can find articles, blog posts, reports, recipes, marketing materials, and even web design PLR on the Internet. Someone else writes it and sells it. You buy it and have the ability to use as you see fit – for the most part. Most PLR sites do have rules to what you can and can’t do with the PLR once you purchase it, so be sure you review those before buying.

Starting a blog is easy – keeping a blog interesting and fresh is a whole other matter.

While many marketers have no trouble beginning a niche blog, the sheer number of abandoned blogs around the ‘net speaks to the fact that many marketers don’t know what to do to keep a blog going. According to blogging experts, the key to keeping a blog going is to post frequently. This means that you’re going to need a ever present stream of content coming into your blog.

You may be intimidated by the thought of having to come up with lots of topic ideas. Finding topics for your blog posts are easy if you use the following ideas.

1. News in your niche
Your blog should be timely and there’s no better way to attract attention on your blog than to tap into some ongoing news. No matter what your niche is you can find news stories and breaking information that will help fuel timely blog posts. Sign up for Google Alerts (it’s free) and set up alerts on important words in your niche. This way you’ll be able to see the news in your niche and blog about current topics.

2. Comments section
The comments section in your blog can be a great source of writing inspiration. Let’s say you have a post on your marketing blog about keyword research. Within the comments section, a few people start asking about how to use keywords in articles for article marketing. Voila! You have your next blog post. Look through your comments section to identify topics that you can write about or questions you can answer in the form of a blog post. Read more

Virtually anyone can make money online, but most people won’t.

Why? Because they don’t apply what they know, they aren’t persistent, focused, and are unclear.

Anyone who is making money online has done this. And… they periodically evaluate where they are at.
What is it?

You have to know who your target market is and is not. You have to know who you want to do business with and who wants to do business with you. Where is their pain, frustration, and how can you solve this for them.

And you must continually evaluate who your market is and use this to determine your marketing strategy, advertising, branding, articles and …your target market’s motivation, that is to say, “why the heck do these people come to you in the first place?”   Read more

We all know that our results will be determined by how much effort we put into our success. As with anything, the more earnest effort we put into the learning, development and implementation of the information and coaching we receive, the more we will get out of it. And, the quicker we will achieve our goals – our Vision.

No great thing is created suddenly. —Epictetus (A.D.200)

Give yourself permission and space to realize yourself, from a place of self-respect.

As your business coach, I have you write down and feel your Vision as you write and re-read it often. Keeping it in a place you can easily see. Many of you have written affirmations with a future date – knowing that the affirmation helps bring us Read more
