Blogging for Internet Marketers - Define Your Niche to Create Better Blogging!

Here are some thoughts about the art of blogging:

Some Internet Marketing bloggers will post topics that vary greatly. Other Internet Marketing bloggers feel most comfortable when they are posting on a particular topic. The question has often been: which way is best? Studies demonstrate that defining your niche creates better blogging. So, using this discovery, it is assumed that it is best to choose one route to take, and stick with it. This can mean that you choose one large topic and use it to produce your total blog topic list. You will likely get repeated visitors if you are posting on the same subject matter in any case. If you are still not sold however, check out these other explanations for why defining your niche can lead to more successful Internet Marketing blogging.

Knowing the Topic

While it can be monotonous to post on the same topic each day, there is one thing to be said about it. You will certainly know your topic. The more you post on a topic, the more thinking and research you have to do on the topic. When you commit a lot of time to one topic, you will become more and more familiar with it. Therefore, by sticking to one topic, instead of being a "jack of all trades"” writer, you will most likely become an "“expert"” writer on your topic. Knowing a topic sufficiently will eventually make the writing process a lot easier. When you understand a lot of information on a topic, blog posts will come easy to you. You will soon get to the point where you don't have to research any longer and can simply use what you know to write. All writers will tell you that at that point, it will take much less time to do your work.

Variations of Your Idea

Although you will be writing on one particular topic idea, you will be creating variations of your idea for your posts. For instance, when your niche is weddings, you can produce a post on wedding gowns on one day and a post on wedding bouquets on the next day. The list of wedding topics could go on and on for months or years. There is so many variations you can think of that you can stay within your niche without changing topics altogether. This will allow each blog topic to be fresh and new each day. Brides, grooms, gowns, honeymoon site, all can be part of your blog. Even, how to choose your bridal rings will make interesting blogging. You can visit the different corners of your topic and still stick with your niche.

Creating Particular Posts

When you do go within your niche to create posts, you will be able to write specific posts that will draw a more targeted reader group. This will be great if you are relying on search engines to point people to your site. When you have specific posts that will bring in readers that are looking for topics like yours, your blog will be a success. You can bet that these readers will likely keep coming back to your blog in order to peruse other posts, which will be great for you as a blogger. If you are planning to ad advertising to your site, having a specific niche will help bring in more money since the ads placed on your site, will also be specific to your blogs. Choose your keywords carefully and add specific words to your blog. This will generate more traffic and can encourage more clicks on the ads placed on your site. With a program such as Google's Adsense, you can earn money with each click.

So, as you can see, defining your niche is something that you should strongly consider as a blogger. When you jump from topic to topic in your blog, you can confuse readers and never have the chance to create a steady reader group that can maintain your blog. When you do have a niche that you are expert in, you will see that readers will value your information and opinion and your blog will be a hit! Go ahead and think about a topic that interests you the most. Think about distinct variations that you can use for more specific topic posts and try them out. You will rapidly see that trying this approach can work wonderfully.

The idea of repeat visitors was something that we hoped for at the beginning and most of our initial articles focussed on the music content of our site and even included some podcasting but it didn't really come off. So we have tended to concentrate on other aspects of developing the site and related issues. The vast majority of our blog visitors arrive from searches on topics that we have covered - very few go on to visit the main site regardless of the presence of embedded links in the text.

New Music

It is time we changed our tack and came up with some new recordings perhaps in a slightly different style to see if we can generate interest that way.

The main obstacle at the moment is our kit. The software for our sophisticated Creamware sound card is not working properly with our Cubase sequencing and recording application. Specifically this means restricted access to final mastering functionality as we put the mixes to bed.

On the instrumentation front we have some new presets for the Moog that we'd like to try - provided they don't pull the processor over and we have some Symphonic movements on the stocks that could be fun.

So this calls for another attempt to get a response from their support organisation.

In the meantime the weather here in London is sunny and warm at last, our broadband reasonably steady and the visitors are coming into the site in reasonable numbers but that's as far as it goes.

Time for the new weekly composer now - Saint Saens I think.

Visitor Volumes down - not sure why

Yes the puzzle continues. We know that there has been a significant Google update but the impact on our SERPs has generally not been too significant - the usual crop of ups and downs spiced up by the odd disappearance. But the last couple of days have been 25% down on the previous working day run rate. Remember - don't panic over a couple of day's figures!

So we are going to have a long weekend - back next Wednesday (for our small faithful band of regular readers). This trip will be a test of some technology we are planning to take on a much longer excursion later in the year - so we may improve on that if we find Wifi hotspots in North Wales.

If you are one of that faithful band it would be fascinating to hear from you.

This daily exercise in one way communication gives focus to my morning review of yesterday's data but the complete absence of response is a bit weird. I have to say it is matched by the lack of response on the SEO board where I have zero credibility and m…

Communicate with Visitors

I have had this article in the possibles stack for a couple of months which is very unusual. We have been worrying about gaining visitors and getting them to listen to atleast one of our samples but it is clear that we need to work on our communication with our visitors - to engage them and encourage them to consider a purchase or two.
Here is a rather thoughtful piece on this topic:

This article might be a bit different than you've come to
expect from a webmaster-related article. The reason is that, in
my opinion, it is a facet of the internet many people don't
really think about. And that is communication. But, by
communication I mean more than just talking or writing. Read

What is Communication?

Communication is defined simply as the transferring of an idea
or concept from one point to another with full duplication on
the receiving side. This last component is one often forgotten.
So, a full one-way communication would be Fred has an idea about
a widget. He propels that idea acros…
