Having your own mlm blog is the #1 way to brand yourself and stand apart from all the other company cheerleaders.
Owning your own blog gives you complete control and ownership over all of your content. Heaven forbid your mlm company shuts down and you lose ALL of the hard work you put into it.
Not to forget, most offline network marketers are sticking solely to scuzzy offline methods and missing out on all the opportunity online.
Trust me when I say I know a thing or two about building an mlm blog. Roughly all of the traffic to my blog are network marketers & internet marketers.
Pretty savvy, right?
My blog pretty much attracts the exact person I want to market to, which are struggling home business entrepreneurs, network marketers, and internet marketers.
When you get that kind of targeted traffic, your conversions SHOOT through the roof.
So log off Facebook and pause House of Cards because I’m going to share my foolproof, step-by-step blueprint to building an unstoppable mlm blog.
“Million Dollar MLM Blogging”
Step 1: Buy a Domain and Hosting
I’ve used a few different hosting sites but HostGator is my favorite by far.
Their customer service kicks butt (24/7 online chat support), and their service is reliable. I’ve never had any issues.
Get 25% off your entire order when you use the coupon code TipsFromTim at checkout.
After clicking my partner link, a new window will open and bring you to Hostgator’s homepage.Click on “Sign Up Now” button and it will bring you to the following screen:If you already purchased a domain from somewhere else, then enter it in and select the “I Already Own This Domain” tab.
Otherwise, choose “Register a New Domain” and enter a domain name that you want and make sure to use .com.
Getting a domain through Hostgator is actually easier and saves you a ton of steps.
Next, confirm the web-hosting plan you want (Hatchling or Baby), create a username and password for your account, and then fill out the billing information to complete the process.
Hostgator will send you an email with your Control Panel, Username, and Password login information.Login to your control panel to move onto the next step.
Step 2: Install WordPress
After logging into your control panel, you will see the “Special Offers” menu at the very top.
Click “Get Started With WordPress Today” and it will take you to the next screen where you can quick-install WordPress.
Hit the “continue” button and fill out the fields that appear and click “Install Now!”
P.S. Leave the application URL field blank and don’t worry too much about the blog title because it can be changed later.
[note]: I used the domain tipsfromtim.net as an example for this tutorial.
After it’s finished installing it will give you the username and password to your WordPress website, which you can use to login.
Step 3: Customize WordPress
I figured it would be much easier if I recorded a short video walking you through how to do this.
I’m going to show you how to optimize the blog, add a few plugins, and install a sexy, high-performing theme.
The theme is optional but I highly recommend it.
If you want to stand the best chance of ranking to page 1 of Google and converting blog traffic into leads and leads into sales then go with Thesis.
That’s what I’m using.
Step 4: Setup Your Email Autoresponder
Next you need an email management solution.
This is how you will capture leads, send them automated follow up emails, and earn passive income without doing any extra work.
You just have to write out the emails ONE TIME, and they will be automatically sent out to new leads forever after that.
This is how you create time freedom in your business.
I use Aweber and I love it.
Let me hook you up with a $1 trial for the first month so you can try it out.
I have a full tutorial on how to setup an mlm autoresponder.
Step 5: Keyword Research and Content Creation
Keyword research is all about identifying what your “hungry buyer” is typing in the search engines.
When you know that, you can create content that directly satisfies their needs and you can market to them PERFECTLY.
Right this minute, there are people searching the internet for exactly what you offer. You just need to get your presentation in front of them.
The magic happens when you rank your content to page 1 of Google for all your hungry buyers to find it.
Then it’s like selling candy to a kid.
I won’t go into detail about identifying your hungry buyer or doing keyword research because I show you exactly how to do that in this post.
