List Building Using SEO Strategies!

I Would Like To Clarify That Using Paid Marketing Is A Faster Way Of List Building!

List Building

But, how about long term when you want to sit back and write about your experience in what ever field or niche you use because you enjoy blogging as much as I do ?

It is critical that you have a presence online for an effective list building strategy and the best way to do it is by blogging. Most successful companies have implemented some sort of blog on their websites. People love to read valuable information that is unique and can be replicated in their business or be able to apply in their own blog.

This is a part of what has fueled my websites/blogs online and bringing in organic traffic daily. Here are other list building tactics using SEO as your strategy.

Visitor Boost

Using SEO to build your list of subscribers to your newsletter, potential customers, or giving away a free report or free ebook to get their email information is a long term solution to having success with your blog.

This means your going to need an email marketing management system like Aweber.com in place where you can also keep in touch with them to build a relationship and keep them updated on new tools, strategies, latest changes or latest valuable news information to continue and build a loyal following that craves about your content on your blog.

When your using an email marketing management system you will be able to create opt-in forms that are static on your blog or you could use as an exit popup when they are trying to exit your blog to ask for their email in exchange for something valuable and preferably over-delivering in value.

Doing your research well will provide you with good related topic keywords to write about on your blog. Once you have your keywords use them in your blog post and share these blog posts with Bookmarking sites SocialAdr.com, Social Media ie, Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest etc…

SEO starts by using keyword tools like Google Keyword Planner Free Tool. Using keywords in your url, your blog content, the title, meta tags, h2 & h3 tags.

Use a feed burner connected to your blogs xml file to populate itself automatically and help you grow visitors to your blog. Google FeedBurner is free and works pretty well. See figure # 3 below…

Feedburner SEO

This image below shows feeds automatically bringing in over eight thousand visitors a month. You can get free organic traffic just by publishing content on your blog once you have everything set up inside Feedburner’s settings.

Feedburner SEOList building should always be taken into consideration when setting up your website/blog, optimizing every post, optimizing your bookmarking efforts, your social media and all your marketing efforts for that matter.

One more area you can look at when using SEO to build your list is, paid marketing. Why ? If you can afford a few bucks to get the momentum going on your blog posts. Facebook affords you the opportunity to start with as little as $5.00 and allow you to test out ads inexpensively and scale up the winners. The traffic is instantly and real life too.

But, A Word of Wisdom! Get in while it is still possible because just like Google did after they knew they had majority of the market sewed up and they will increase the  target marketing such as keyword pricing and their services.

If using WordPress platform for your website/blog then I recommend using Yoast Plugin or All In One SEO Pack, either of them is a good option and will help you do better SEO on your website blog posts and pages too.

Just click on Plugins in your back office as you see in the image below…

Building An At Home Business On A BudgetTip: I personally have used both of these on my different websites and/or blogs I run and I like both of them. So, either one you choose will help you tremendously with not having to figure out how to do seo like to pros. Each Plugin shows you step by step how to optimize every part of your website/blog. It’s a neat and powerful plugin that simplifies SEO for you.

How To Build A Blog From Scratch

In this article I am going to share how to build a blog from scratch and the important components that make up setting up a blog.

Build A Blog Or Website from scratch

So, What does it take to build a blog from scratch ?

  • The first thing is market research. You can use a tool like Google Keyword Planner Tool to do your research which is absolutely free.

This tool gives you information like: What your market is searching for via keyword and keyword phrases, how much competition you will have and what keywords to use in your Domain Name and blog content when making blog posts.

  • The second thing you should get but not necessary if your starting out on a tight budget. This is getting a Domain Name.

Getting your own Domain Name is the best way of branding yourself and getting found on the top search engines and should include your main keyword.

This keyword should be the one with the most searches and least competition you found while doing your keyword research.

  • The third thing you need is a hosting account. There are many hosting registrars out there like; Hostgator.com, 1and1.com, Bluehost.com and many others.

I have personally used Hostgator to build over 25 sites and have had a very pleasant experience with them and their support is awesome too.

If you go the free way of building a site then I recommend WordPress.com or Blogger.com. These two platforms and are the more popular ones but I favor WordPress because of it’s simplicity and how powerful this platform is in it’s versatility with the thousands of Themes and Plugins ( Only With Paid Service ) at your disposal.

  • The Fourth thing that I highly recommend is getting an Autoresponder like; Aweber, Verticle Response, iContact and MailChimp which is free but a little more cumbersum to use and limited to so many subsribers.

I have personally been using Aweber for years. If you want to go with a free service then MailChimp is great.

Why do you need an Autoresponder you might ask ? Because, ” The Money Is In The List “.

If you are going to have any success online then you need to build your emailing list so you can nurture and stay in touch with your subscribers and more importantly make continuous sales from your list over and over again as long as you provide solid, high quality products that they will benefit and keep coming back for more.

  • The last thing and very important is, Your Blog Content. Your content should be unique and of high quality if you want your readers to come back to your blog. If you are not a writer then or don’t know how to start your content, don’t worry. You will develop your skills as you go along and the truth is that people like content that is natural and not made up or stolen from elsewhere. Later you can outsource this if you wish.

*** Note: When starting a blog from scratch it is important to keep in mind your SEO ( Search Engine Optimization ).

Make sure that you find what your best keywords are and use them in your content sparingly and do not over stuff your content with keywords. Make sure that you use your keywords in your Meta Tags, Your Site Description, Your H1, H2 Tags too.

Take advantage of Social Media platforms and it’s power to share your content and create a following.

Hope you enjoy this post, appreciate if you share it with others.
