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!

Would it Work for You to Have an Internet Home Business?

Before you implement anything online to start a business from home, there are some important issues to consider. There are just a few elements that you need, beyond a need for income. It is not the same as having a job in some respects, so you need to be prepared to create the foundation for your own business.

you can do it!

When you go to work at a job, there is structure already there. They will tell you what time to report, they will tell you what your duties are; your deadlines; what are the assigned times you are allowed for your breaks and lunch; and when you can go home for the day. You know pretty much what to expect each day, and how much money you will have earned at the end of each pay period. There is a definite plan with everything.

You have a foundation that has already been implemented for you. You are accountable to your manager and/or team to keep your side of the bargain. You just need to be trained and learn how to use everything that is already there. With any luck they will also provide training.

You may love your job and therefore excel at what you do; or the job may only be a means to an end. You do it for the money only – to survive. Either way, ‘you have to do what you have to do to get by’.

If you start a home business on the Internet, you have to have the discipline to do the work. You need the ability to stay motivated indefinitely even when you are not seeing any results yet. Technically you are not even being paid for the time you are spending. It can be like working unpaid-overtime when you are just starting up!

It can be very easy to be discouraged, unless you are able to keep a positive mindset about your goals, and remain absolutely determined. If you are not really focused, you may give up before you have given yourself a real chance to succeed. They say 95% fail at Internet marketing. Why? It’s because only 5% don’t quit. The same 5% that never quit and usually end up making a profit!

You have to have the ability to turn discouraging or negative thoughts or comments from others into determination. If you don’t it is possible you will cultivate an attitude of ‘why bother’ and stop trying. You can’t let that happen if you really want to have your dream of your own successful online business.

Keep learning and growing along with your business!
