Have you started blogging yet?

You really should – it will help your business tremendously, and you can read my recent post about that here.

Once you’ve got at least 10 posts on your blog, you might want to consider several things:

  • some kind of sign-up to alert people when your blog’s been updated
  • announcing your blog in an effort to get more visitors.

So why would you do either of these things?

Well, if you provide a sign-up for visitors, and if they like what you say and how you say it, they will want to come back. The easier you make it, the better it is for both of you.

If you announce your blog in blog directories, you can get extra visitors who are interested in the topic of your blog.

Don’t f0rget – the big reason why you do any of this online, is to bring people to your blog and your website [if you have one]. The more visitors you get, the more chance they’ll buy your products and / or services. Isn’t that your ultimate goal?

So the best way to do that is to take the two steps I’ve suggested above, and to make it easy for you, I’m going to include a few places here which provide those services.
