1. What’s Your Niche Market?

 

You, as a blogger, supply what is needed to the world and that is information on any logical subject through blogging so the first thing you need to figure out is what are you going to write about that people will find compelling. You may ask me, “what kind of information Jermaine”, and I’ll tell you, the kind that people need right away that is in demand. So, What exactly is a niche market? a market that provides something in particular to a certain group or amount of people in need or want that you have controlled in which you supply on demand, that alone is buying power! The result is the provider could receive generous returns by solving the problems of those individuals.

Have you ever went shopping inside a supermarket and decided you wanted to purchase a batch of grapes? Normally a person wouldn’t pick the first batch from the top instead they seek further down to the bottom of the basket, but why is that. Everyone wants the tastiest supply they can retrieve from the ben so they’d try to reach the most ripened ones available which are those that contains greatest dark resin on the outside located at the bottom. The supermarket could supplement all of their customers by only shelving more ripened grapes or lose most of them by shelving soured ones and the same goes for online E-commerce, allow me to give you a virtual world example.

You see, before embarking on the wonderful world of internet marketing through blogging I had one big problem that I faced, I had no idea what I could possibly offer people so I was stuck by not necessarily knowing my niche. I had no clue what or where I could insert my knowledge into, but I clearly knew I’d eventually find and dominate a niche overtime so I did not give up. I knew that I wanted to start writing or blogging about something so I turned towards online forums then began asking dozens of questions about marketing, products, and services. I received a lot of great answers but one answer I retrieved through my inbox from someone stood out better than any other answers I received during those 2 weeks of searching, “just stick with what you know”, and up to this day I stuck by that principle every since. Just as the “grapes” example above I yearned to curate and provide better material than my competitors were providing.

Of course you will have competition in whatever niche you embark on but just like the grapes demonstration I explained to you, provide a better solution, provide more ripened content and nothing will get in your way. You don’t need to be smart at everything just smart enough at one thing and be consistent in that. It had always been obvious to me that you can only produce material that you have enough knowledge about and if you don’t have enough knowledge then it’s best that you study hard about people, their wants and needs by gaining it from numerous of resources. There is plenty of free information everywhere through libraries to read books as well as the internet to search on any subject that strikes your interest. You are on a leveled playing field that if you have the patience and focus you could intentionally dominate any purposed industry if you set the goals and pursue them vigorously with desire.

All dots and hooks began to come together but I needed a set of tools in order to harness the power of the internet, after all I wanted to connect and identify with my core audience but I couldn’t figure out exactly what they looking for in my industry and how were they searching. How could I get their attention? To get a better understanding of what my audience may be thinking I used Google keyword’s tool. This keyword tool gave me valuable insight on what people were searching for on their search engines, you then could purchase and bid on those key terms. Unfortunately, it no longer exists unless you have a Google account. Here is the special tool I use as an alternative to GK that I strongly recommend and suggest. Here is a strategic way of using it to garner the best results(I’m going to use an example of one of the earlier niche industries I was involved in, “Dating & Relationships”, top keyword: “love quotes”):

Semrush.com

I had a decent amount of talent when it came to writing poetry & love quotes so I managed to cover the market pretty well until I got really bored and unfocused, I stopped producing content all of a sudden, however this is how I’d discover what my audience was looking for and as you follow along you’d notice my niche was “love quotes” within the relationship & dating industry:

Step (1) – Type in your top niche keywords in SEMRUSH.COM input field and press the “SEARCH” button.

Step (2) – Now, scroll down to the center and you would see a list of keywords related to my top keywords “love quotes” as you see in the picture below. Look in the column that says “volume”. On each row represents how many people have been searching for those keywords. Now you have a much more broader and clear idea of what your readers are searching for, it’s up to you if you wish to continue pursuing this niche. Semrush.com can only take so many queries from one user(I think 10-15 submissions a day!)so I suggest signing up for free otherwise you will be very limited to receiving insights on your research.

Step (3) – I never did like taking one piece of advice and leaving the rest of the possibilities of good intel on the table so to further my research I went straight to the source, Google. Why? Because the search engine itself gives you even more ideas you could consider about your subject, in terms of the habits of your audience by looking through their eyes, thoughts and viewpoints. Google collects plenty of information including the footprints of those who are using their search engine. Check this out:

Search Results ExampleSearch engine results example pulled from queries.

The above picture is giving you a bit more specs on the character of your audience. Pay close attention to the ever changing atmosphere of the habits in your niche otherwise your readers will leave you wondering what they really want. Google is not only a search tool, but a awesome analytic tool for shouting out to you “Hey, your readers searched this”, then telling you exactly what people are doing and what you might want to pay close attention to when starting your blog. By now you should have done a little brainstorming to figure out what niche you are planning on pursuing now let’s find a reputable hosting company to host a blog and don’t worry it’s easy my friend.

2. You Need Web Hosting/Domain Name

 

In the older days we’d purchase a domain name from a company that sells them then purchase monthly hosting from a company in order to house the domain otherwise it will be impossible to upload files, basically your website would remain invisible to the public if you had no hosting. The cost of hosting use to be ridiculously high until hundreds if not thousands of hosting companies started appearing driving the cost of the service down so much that today anybody can afford hosting because of the competitive nature as well as quantification. In order for the internet to work correctly in today’s world of e-commerce it relies on great browsers for people to use.

The websites we visit on these browsers solely relies on what we call HTML(hyper-text markup language) files in which produce text, images, tables, and several colors for the browser to generate. It is the foundation of what the internet is built upon and that will never change for a very long time. Once an HTML file has been created it must be uploaded to a hosting server in which a hosting company provides before the rendered file can be seen public throughout the internet that is what a hosting company is but first you must acquire a domain name. For instance, I have a hosted website called www.howtostartablog.cc in which you are reading this from now.

You’d need to register a domain before hosting, but there is a better way now. The most genius move ever made in the web hosting industry is combining both domain registrar with the hosting company therefore leaving the customer with a package deal and I’m going to show you exactly how to set it all up using my favorite hosting I’ve been doing business with for over 7 years and I find quite affordable, not to mention excellent customer service is Bluehost. If you can afford to pay under $100 a year for domain name and hosting all in one then signup at the bottom to and let’s continue setting up our amazing blog. Congratulations to making it this far in starting your own blog I know this has all have been long coming but you will not be disappointed.

Step (1) Click Here to Join Bluehost.com Once you’ve arrived to the website click on the “get started now” button then you will be whisked off to begin the process which shouldn’t take you very long at all.

Step (2) – When I was thinking of a domain name to represent my blog I came up with several goofy names that could easily hinder the integrity of what I was going to be presenting so I got very serious and decided to use a name that fit my official reason of starting this blog and that’s to teach with numerous of guides by lying down my own experiences in the blogging industry. Here’s a few reasons why you should consider using a professionally outline name.

  • Branding Purposes – Remember, you may use the benefits of branding since it’ll take your blog to totally new levels in the future. One mistake a person can do is continue building brands under names that gave little traction. I’d suggest you use your own name for branding purposes since people trust people’s opinion before products you must brand yourself. I created jermainepleas.com becasue I am a person that believes in personal branding and establishing authority upon the products or services I distribute to others. If your name has already been taking then be creative and publish a domain that resonates with your audience.
  • Create Something Memorable – Try to keep it short, memorable, and to the point as much as possible. A good example is digg.com. It’s very short but easy to remember. If you don’t brand your name then create a memorable short one. One that is craft and can be remembered.
  • Use Top Keyword – This tactic has been overused and abused due to spamming search results and that is placing your keywords in your domain name. This little method still has some kick, punch, push, but can cause you to get slapped if you attempt to use it for getting a spot in the top search results providing poor quality content. Sure, you may get a listing but not a long lasting one if you are using underhanded methods.

Last but not least, I strongly suggest not implementing colons between your keywords in order to get a matching exact type because it’s becoming a known factor on Google’s spam team so re-frame from such tactics and start a straightforward, clean slated domain and you will do fine, stay, look and continue too be legit.

Step (3) – Fill out all of your details. Once you’ve completed the forms its time to get moving along with your blog by installing it. You are almost done with the hard part and the hard part is getting it all setup, allow me to demonstrate how you do this, it’s fairly easy. Now, go ahead and get signed up and see you one the inside.

If you have arrived at this section of this tutorial then you have finally made a decision to go all the way. So far we’ve uncovered our niche, domain and hosting now its time we’ve installed our blogging software and trust me this isn’t hard at all so let’s begin shall we. *Remember to check your email address for your receipt and login details for your hosting that you’ve purchased the package with.*

3. How to Install WordPress Blogging Software

 

Okay, it’s time for us to install WordPress on our server and begin writing our first post. The first thing you need to do is log in to your Bluehost account. After logging in you will be redirected to what we call a Cpanel. So what is Cpanel? Basically, Cpanel is the software used by Bluehost on the front log in page to list all links and categorize things like file manager, domain registration, etc. Well, take a look at the bottom and you’d see.

  • Step (1) – Log in to Bluehost.com.
  • Step (2) – Click on domain manager.
  • Step (3) – Scroll down and click on domain manager.

You will notice that next to your domain name that it says “Primary”. The primary domain is the domain you used to sign up with the hosting package. It’ll look like the figure at the bottom. If you have registered another domain after your primary domain it must be “assigned” before installing the blog software.

Primary Domain – If the domain you are starting your blog with is your primary one then you don’t need to assign anything. Here’s a good example of how your primary domain looks.

Addon Domain – If you purchase any additional domains they must be assigned before any files or blogging script can be uploaded by clicking addon. It’ll take about 2 minutes for it to be accepted so be patient. Here is an example of a unassigned domain that must be assigned before usage. For your interest, your directory should already be setup by default. A unassigned domain example.

Step (3) – After assigning your domain go back to your homepage on Cpanel, then scroll down and press the WordPress icon. Here is how your layout will look like.

Step (4) – After the page has fully populated press the button that says “start”. Bluehost automatically has an updated version of the latest WordPress setup.

Step (5) – Choose the domain you are uploading the WordPress blogging script then press “check domain”. Select the domain you will be downloading the WordPress script to.

Step (6) – You are more likely going to receive a message that says “It looks like files already exist in that location! If we proceed some files may be overwritten.” just press, “continue”. Here is what you’ll see.

Step (7) – You have the advance option to retrieve all information for logging in. Check out the image in the link on the right side.WordPress log in example

Step (8) – Look above your screen and you’d notice the script is loading. Check out the image in the link on the side: WordPress installment process.

Step (9) – Click on the link that says “view process”, and then click on “view credentials”.

Step (10) – Scroll down and you’d notice once again you are prompted with your log in details. Copy, paste and the details right away.

Step (11) – Congratulations, you have completed the uploading process. Log in or take a look at your installed blog.

All your functions for posting pages, post, images, and plugins are located on your dashboard. After logging into your blog you will find these options set before you on the left side of your dashboard. The next chapter to this guide delves into themes.

4. Best WordPress Themes

 

Personally, I don’t bother with purchasing themes instead I use the free versions provided by WordPress itself. The most unique and valuable thing you have control of is your domain and the content you provide on it. Accessing your themes are simple, just follow the directions I give you below. Themes focuses on the style, placement of widgets, structure of the your blog. The choice is yours if you wish to focus on the looks, personally, I place all my focus on strong content for my readers. Anyhow, let’s proceed:

1. On your dashboard hover over the option “Appearance” and click on the first option that says “Themes”.

With the theme “Twenty Twelve” you have the options to change the background color or upload an background image, header image, as well as the color of the text in your content. I’m pretty other themes can perform similarly or better, however, the theme is simple, nice, and very easy to manage.

5. The Best Plugins to Use

 

Plugins are extra tools for taking good care of the technical side of your blog wherein back in the old days when developers developed websites they needed to have a skill set in programming in order implement several features to their websites, today this task is 100 times more easier. Any beginner web builder can inject all sorts of code through plugins if you are using WordPress. Now, its time to choose top of the line plugins for your blog but first I’m going to show you step by step on how to navigate, search, and install any type of plugin you desire.

Step (1) – Move your cursor over to the left column of your blog and hover over the tab called “Plugins”, now press the “Add New” tab.

Step (2) – Now, search for a plugin to add to your blog. For this example I’m going to use the most useful one for SEO optimization for search engines. What I mean about SEO optimization is prepping it up for the search engines using keywords that are currently being searched. It’s called “All in One SEO”.

Down through the years I’ve been using some of the best plugins to date and they still take really good care of my needs when it comes to functionality and simplicity in managing my blog. Below are my useful plugins which I consider the best at this moment. and I’ll explain why as I list them to you. To use these you must first download them from the plugin tool section. Using the tutorials I revealed to you above go ahead and search for them in the plugin section and upload each one to your blog then activate them. You won’t be disappointed once you have a full understanding how they can benefit your blog. See what they can do for your blog by reading the description of each below.

You see, once a visitor visits your blog a popup box with a darkened background appears giving causing you to focus clearly on the center of the screen. Check out the quick example at the bottom.

  • Google XML SitemapVery important plugin, it insures the Googlebots for Google, Yahoo, and Bing are visiting your newly created pages and are being indexed within the search queries more frequently.

These plugins above serve my purpose as a blogger along with my top-notch content I’m creating or my readers. Time is not on your side and fiddling around with code is one of those task you surely wouldn’t want to waste it on. With plugins this cuts your downtime in droves.

6. Update Your Settings

 

Their a few defaults in place once you’ve installed your blog that is not necessary, in fact, I suggest you remove these before proceeding. You want to edit your post, pages, and settings areas. Why? Because you don’t want to confuse your readers, besides, it’s your blog….you own it, you run it so set in place logical value. Now, let me show you what I consider useless and should be deleted before making your first post. The developers of WordPress are just giving you a warm welcome with these small additions, other than that there is no need for these credentials. Follow the step by step tutorial below and then you’d have a clear understanding why I recommend a little tweaking before moving along.

Remove the Default Post & PageFirst, hover over the tab “Posts”, next click on the link that says “All Posts”. You will see light blue text that says “hello world”. Hover below that particular the “hello world” link and click on “Trash”. Afterwords you’d see a description appear that says, “No post found.”. Congratulations, you now can add a brand new post, “your” first post without that ridiculous one confusing your audience in the future.

Use the same method above to remove the default page setup and then you should be fine to create your first new page. I forgot to add that “pages” are similar to “post” the difference is pages are specifically used for being placement of priority. What I mean is you can create “about me”, privacy policy, disclaimer, contact us, or other top priority documents to be placed on top tabs on your blog. If you take at the linked tabs under my header image you’ll see my contact page, anyhow, let get back to basics. Now edit your Settings. Here is how I’d do it:

Remove Tagline & Replace Site Title – Your default “site title” is already setup but we are going to replace it with your own choice of title. First click on “settings”, then click on “general”. Look at the bottom descriptive diagram to get a clearer of picture what to do.

7. How to Change Permalinks

 

You are now ready to redo your permalink link’s structure. Otherwise you are officially prepared to blog however to receive the full benefits of your blog you want to implement clean links when publishing articles or post. I can show you better than explaining what I mean for a picture says a thousand words.

Figure A. We are going to change this: Change this permalink

Figure B. Into this, a better permalink structured for your post

Hover over the tab “post”, next, click “add new”, now, once you’ve input a title in the title input field the permalink is going to generate but its ultimately going to look like the picture in figure A. Let’s change the permalink to look a lot fresher and clean like figure B. Sitting on the right side of your permalink you’ll see a button that says “change permalinks”, click on it. The figure below looks exactly like this. Duplicate the instructions placed within the picture and you’ll be in superb condition:

When publishing content your first objective is to come up with a splendid title. Your actual title will infuse with your permalink, but you have the genuine alternative to change it at your own will by pressing the “edit” button. This can be done after completing the permalink tutorial above for cleaner link structure.

8. How to Create Epic Material

 

Usually a blogger talks about things that they’ve already contain prior knowledge about but it can be a bit disturbing when you run out of ideas believe me I’ve had this problem so many times. I come to realize it’s fairly easy to come up with unlimited amount of content for any blog by breaking down your industry into small fragments. For instance, I write about “starting a blog”, but I could supplement my subject by writing about tools to use in order to create a better environment for your blog. The sky’s the limit when it comes to information and you are the authorized agent of your industry, just create for the user, help the user. Here’s a few other areas to find and research for more material in your niche market:

LibrariesThe library have thousands of books you can retain and perform all types of analysis on your niche. Just remember to bring a notebook and pen, tablet, or laptop to record your findings. Sure, you have full access to Wikipedia, believe it or not the library have pages you haven’t seen on the net just yet, maybe summaries, but not the full story.

GoogleGoogle is like a live library for homebodies and that is okay as long as you find what you are searching for. Research the competition at hand and if you think you could administer additional information that no one has ever seen yet then implement that knowledge through your blog in your own words.

MagazinesLike most scandalous websites exposing the secrets of the top celebrities in the world you can use these resources to incorporate in your blog. These resources have the latest intake in your industry if you don’t and this alone helps you and your readers remain updated on whatever news that is most recent in the niche. Be vigilant, be bold, be precise and constantly stay on top of what is happening now in your industry.

Several offline resources have tons of information you may find useful so never exclude the many trinkets of offline content you could place within your blog. You have pictures to take, videos to shoot and so much other material to consider for your blog never forget that.

9. How to Write a Good Blog Post

 

I admit, I am not the best person when it comes to publishing out-of-sight copy but I happen to get my word across my audience pretty well and try to keep it professional as I possibly can. The outline of this guide is somewhat rare around the internet but it does a good job. Before distributing your content to the public make sure it’s condensed in a way for your readers to get around well by inserting an index like the one I’ve setup on this blog at the top, follow my blueprints for structuring an extensive online guide like this example.

You don’t have to be fancy when writing your craft just be truthful to your audience, that’s it. When creating creative content stick to the point and give fine details on your offerings. Sure, you can add comedy and fun to your blog but never go astray. My suggestion for you is to release plenty of free information that is not being offered anywhere else, that is how you write a good blog post. If you find that you can cover a topic that can be presented a lot better than the originals online then put in your best hand.

10. Best Web Design Software to Use

 

If you paid attention to the header above you would see a guy leaning on a banner sitting next to him. With a little focus on my design and about a hour I managed to create that image. I pay less attention to web design but I do love a decent representational image. Whatever industry you have entered doesn’t need a hyped up web design but enough of information to solve the problems of your readers because at the end of the day that is all that really matters. Create a professional website with a decent logo and design.

The awesome piece of designer software that I use is called CorelDraw 12. I have gotten really accustomed to the functions that is offered on that software. There is a free trial for you to download. Here’s the kicker, I had created a great way for anybody to use it for free after the trial has expired for those who cannot afford to purchase the license to use.

Overall, I love teaching hundreds of thousands of individuals how to start a blog, it’s simple a simple task that can be done in a snap. I can have a blog up and running 10 minutes top. If you have any problems don’t forget to contact me jermainepleas10@gmail.com. I can setup the whole deal for you instantly. So, what do you think about blogging?
