How to Create Compelling Content for your Home Business Blog

Your content should have useful information, you don’t want to create a text bookish atmosphere that will bore people. Without sounding academic, there are many ways you can present value — information that people need or at least will enjoy. Just imagine you are writing to a friend so that you can project a warm atmosphere.

write on!

Experts on writing teach that if you don’t catch someone’s attention right off that you will lose them – they won’t stick around to read the rest of the article. Hence, you should use exciting words, especially in your subject or title to grab the reader’s attention. You want to attract the reader and then hold their attention. This is sometimes referred to as ’emotional writing’.

Emotional writing can be seen as dramatic or compelling. It is a good idea to do some keyword research and make a ‘swipe file’ with words that are both key to your articles subjects and exciting. In advertising and sales, there are many ways in which this works — using time constraints: ‘this is your last chance’, ‘don’t miss out’. Scarcity: ‘last 5 in stock’ the ‘next 8 callers only’; Excitement: ‘must have’, ‘secret tips’, ‘top of the line’, ‘unbeatable’, ‘latest discovery’, ‘truly great’, ‘the best’, ‘fantastic’, ‘wonderful’, and ‘awesome’.

Especially if you are promoting something technical, but effective in any case, is giving proof of what you say. This would work very effectively for instance if you can quote a study or survey that has been done that will back up your claim, (give them a link); or income testimonials. Quoting statistics is not really very effective unless you provide the source of your statistics or claims. They can help you to create an interesting article.

You shouldn’t necessarily focus your writing on selling unless you are creating a sales page. For the purposes of ‘content’ you always want to keep it purely conversational and interesting. Try to present the information without pushing it.

One last example of how to keep it exciting: describe some condition that needs to be fixed, or a substance that can do something factually. Discreetly at the end add a paragraph describing how your product or service is what they need and include your link. This is easier to use if you are selling a product. For example an article about some human condition like dry skin or dandruff. Then you provide the remedy or solution.

This can apply to home business opportunities, as well. For instance the condition being ‘paycheck is insufficient’, or ‘hate your job?’ Starting a home business can be the solution to either one or both conditions and with just a little creativity you can turn that into a good article!

Starting a Home Business – Stay Excited

When we first try something new we anticipate the best results. This idea may be very exciting as success is very attractive to everyone. We are speaking here to the excitement of being a part of something new.

Stay Happy!

It would be really good if you could maintain that level of excitement as time goes on as it is definitely motivating. You may note though that the level of excitement goes down a little more every day. Particularly if you do not see any results yet (normal for a new business) you may have to force yourself to stay positive.

However we do not need to psych ourselves up so much that it may amount to a fantasy. This could really have the opposite effect than what you would imagine. Since a business is a reality we need to stay realistic about what we can accomplish, at least in the immediate future.

Any business opportunity is going to require various tasks be performed to keep it running and moving forward (gaining momentum). We do not know how much time will be necessary to elapse before we start to see tangible results from our efforts.

One thing is for sure – in this context, ‘what goes around comes around’. If you put forth minimal effort to promote* your business, you are likely to see few if any results. *(Internet advertising and marketing)

In other words, it is not going to work for you just because it is working for somebody else, unless you did exactly what he is doing, with the same frequency and duration.

The quality of your leads and where you may have gotten them is also going to affect everything you do. You should always use leads that have voluntarily opted-in to any web form or email you have used to invite them.

This is called ‘ethical, permission-based’ advertising. Even though it may cause you to do more work and/or spend more money and time, the other side is being derailed due to spam complaints from people who did not request your information. This is a serious legal issue so don’t get so excited that you forget there are rules and regulations!

Starting a Home Business – Maintaining a Positive Mindset

It is very important, maybe even critical for you to have faith in yourself and the universe in general. It can be very difficult especially if you read the news and/or have unresolved personal issues.

create a positive mindset

It may seem obvious that we have to try to balance everything so that no matter how bad things get, we can still see the light. We may have to conjure up some good thoughts if we don’t find any when we search our own data.

If necessary to turn things around we may have to just get away from the whole situation. Go out and force ourselves to enjoy something – fun, food, sun, fresh air, friends, relatives, etc. Whenever thoughts come up that are about our problems, for at least this period of our escape, we must refuse to entertain negative thoughts.

We can do this by consciously slamming the door that goes that way. Grab hold of a pleasant thought and stick to it. You can do this with a short prayer requesting that you be given faith; or you may think about something of beauty such as sunrise or sunset, the ocean or the trees. Focus on whatever you really love and then imagine you are there right now.

With a home business you can actually use your actions to promote your business and subsequently improve your mindset at the same time. This speaks to the fact that instead of getting discouraged because you have not seen many results yet and letting this cause you to lose interest. It is perfectly normal to have to take action over a period of time in order to produce results.

Many think they should see results without putting forth any effort or investing any time. If you think about the logic of this there isn’t any. You must be realistic if you need to work a little harder for a little longer. Again this is a good thing because eventually you are apt to see improvement in your bottom line because of the extra effort and this will cheer you up and encourage you.
