Hi again

I absolutely agree with the above. Talking about social media: figure out where your customers are! Is it Facebook? Twitter? Google+? Don't waste time beeing all places. Have a look at the automated business apps working with Facebook. Here's a useful link: http://www.facebookmarketingapps.com/

Yes, I'm using SEO. I used link Building,
Keep in mind that you may be building links to your blog, but that's not enough. You need to do link building for each and every blog post--and promote the blog post on the social networks (share it on your twitter, facebook, google+, social bookmarking accounts). Think of it as if you're link building fresh, again, for each and every blog post.

SEO since 1996, I've been doing internet marketing. I have the experience as an SEO expert, as well.

In my opinion you have to rid yourself of all distractions (cell phone included), sit down and begin typing. Don't leave until your blog is finished.

Write awesome blog entries. That's the best way to gain loyal readers who will go back to your blog for more.

Blogging is bringing together the things that are happening in your environment and the things happening inside your thoughts as well. It is a method of sharing what you love in life, not necessarily only those that you "know". It is easy to spot dedicated bloggers and these are blogs that readers come back [to] for more.

Chris I'll have to agree with mktgbz it's the smallest things that makes a big difference therefore creating content by either writing or putting together some simple, short how to videos.

Headlines are also very important so you can write about problems & questions that others have or frustrations people are dealing with in your niche.

Blogging is a long term strategy in fact it's the brain of your business which means that people are looking for guidance this is why it's so important for you to do what you love doing & if you do these small, simple things then people will always remember you.

Overtime people will start seeing you as the "go to person" in your field & they'll start recommending you to others.

Hope this helps

Default my simple answer....

What I did was -- copied those other big-timer blogs that had similar subject matter then put an unique fingerprint on it.

Some of those guys have been doing it for years and know what works!
