Creating your own MLM blog is as easy as four simple steps. I will show you how simple it is to have a blog for your Home business.
A Home Business blog is an internet recruiting machine. But why create one? Here are a few reasons why you need a Home Business blog: Having your own valuable asset, allowing you to generate Network Marketing leads.
Search engines and social media capture a large portion of all daily internet traffic. Your Network Marketing will allow you be found online by a lot of internet users.
4 stages is all it takes to have your MLM blog. Though there are numerous other options available for setting up your blog, what most of these platforms have in common is this: whenever you set up your Home Business blog on any of these platforms, that blog you set up does not belong to you anymore.. You may add your content and write as much as you like, but the particular platform has every right to altogether remove “your” blog from their system.
In effect, you have absolutely no control. Should the platform go down for any reason, your Network Marketing blog goes down as well. When you optimize your blog, so you rank well on Google, Yahoo and the other search engines, that ranking ultimately helps the particular platform you choose, and not your blog.
When you are choosing a blog platform for your Network Marketing blog, careful thought must go into the platform you choose.
When setting up your MLM blog, you should aim for total ownership, so that you are in complete control of everything.
Though a blog is very simple to set up on the platforms mentioned above, if you are looking to develop your home business blog into a real valuable asset, you’re best setting it up on WordPress.org, the blogging platform of choice for all home business bloggers.
Here’s Why You Ought To Have A Blog On WordPress.Org?
The blogs out there today, are mostly on WordPress.Org
WordPress is designed to integrate with Social Media tools and services right out of the box.By creating your Home Business blog on this blogging platform, you set it up yourself and host it yourself. It’s also free and effective.
Creating A Blog In 4 Steps
Worpress makes it simple to set up a Network Marketing Blog; in four stages
1. Start By Registering Your Domain
Your domain name is identical to an address, but without the physical buidling.
When choosing a domain, select one that’s easy to remember, and can be written and pronounced easily. But because you’re building a Network Marketing blog, and you aim to brand yourself, choosing your name (if the domain name is available) works just fine.
So where and how do you register a domain?
A domain registrar such as Godaddy will do just fine. If you haven’t already done so, sign up for a free account, and find out if the domain you want is obtainable
If your desired domain name is available, go ahead and register it.
2. Now You Need To Host Your Domain
Based on our previous street address example, if your domain is identical to your address, without the actual property, then your web host is where you construct the actual property.
By having a web host, you store your files and domain name securely, so people can access your content when they access your blog.
You should aim to use a web host with a reputation for great customer service and support. For that reason, I highly recommend Hostgator as your web host.
Select to view the web hosting plans, and then choose the “baby plan” option. This gives you hosting for an unlimited number of domains.
When prompted, choose the “Existing Domain” option, and update Name Servers only. Enter all required fields, and you will receive an email from your Hostgator. This email will be useful later on.
3. You Will Then Need To Direct Your Domain To Your Web Host
From our house and street address example, this step is identical to pointing your address at your house.
Put simply, we need to point the domain to the web host. This way, when someone types in your domain name in their browser, they can access your blog
Hostgator sends you an email with your details. Get the Name Servers from that email.
To point your domain name to your web host take the ensuing steps:
A. Log into your Godaddy account.
B. Modify DNS settings for your domain under the administration panel within your Godaddy account.
C. Point the Domain Name Servers to the address you were emailed by Hostgator (contained within the email you received).
4. Install WordPress Onto Your Host
Hostgator comes with an application called Fantastico.
Fantastico allows you to install a WordPress blog without trouble. To gain access to this piece of softward, access your Admininstration Area with the information you were sent by your webhost (Hostgator). The Uniform Resource Locator (URL) to logon should have the form, DomainName.com/cpanel (You may need to be patient as your DNS settings may take a while to take effect; 12-24 hours.).
Click on the Fantastico icon, and follow the directions for installing your WordPress blog. Find the link to install your WordPress blog, and click on it.
And that is all there is to it.
You will also need to install a theme for your Home Business blog, to modify the look and feel, as well as customize its functionality. When you have customized your MLM blog and enhanced its functionality, you can begin posting articles.
For now though, if you asked, “how do you create a blog”, I’ve just given you the answer.
