Cogs & Logs Blogging Part II

004_42

I may have got a wee step ahead of myself in the order of these blog articles. You will see why as you read on.

The Kings of the Blogging World Blogger vs. WordPress

Which platform best suits your needs? Are you only looking for
a way to express your enthusiasm for a hobby? Or are you
looking for way to create followers as part of lead generation?
From playtime to full out business, there are decisions to be
made.

FREE Hosting ~ the good the bad and the ugly

Is Blogger free if you have to buy a domain name
[yourdomain.com]? Hosting it forever on Google
‘completely free of cost with no downtimes’
seems to be the draw.

If you are talking ‘self-hosted word Press’ then finding
a FREE hosting place is not much different.

What it all boils down to when talking ‘free’ is what is
offered?

Templates are wider and prettier for WordPress and there are
untold hundreds to choose from that come with WP plus more
are offered by hosting companies.

Blogger allows you to customize everything. But does that help
a new person understand that bandwidth comes from pretty
pictures and gadgets that supposedly create a pretty blog? The
more you bloat, the longer it takes for pages to load and the
costlier it becomes to carry a FREE blogger?

You could conceivably make the same mistakes with WP BUT
having it on a hosted site NOT FREE can make the difference
there as to what you learn and what is available.

Usability:

In terms of usability, Blogger is really easy to use, though
the interface is seen as chunky. WP is also easy to blog on
and the Dashboard (interface) is prettier and equally as easy
to use.

In fairness, I have researched feed back on both. The general
opinion seems to reflect the following;

Blogger is a free service given away by Google. Technically,
it is good but visually unappealing and its usability is
horrendous.

WP – WordPress, ( the site) offers a basic free version
that is good enough visually. WP makes its money off users
willing to pay more for control over appearance. Perhaps
generating such revenue through selling the service/product,
they have paid more attention to visual polish and usability.

Experience is probably the better teacher. However, having
said that, if you are new to blogging or your experiences
so far have been frustrating, then your choice may be made
clearer in that WordPress HOSTED professional version will
be worth that extra small monthly hosting fee to have all
the support and help you need in becoming a happy blogger.

There is a lot more to learn yet. Keep researching the
people who have made their mark in blogging. Be aware of
so many business choices, limitations, costs and learning
skills if you are to monetize successfully.

See you Monday with Part III …

Insights On Blogging and Training

Power of upgradingWhen you read this blog each day, do you wonder if you can do the same? Could you possibly write EVERY day in a blog?

You don’t really have to. This blog is based around both ViralHost and its satelite programs. Thus there is always something to write about.

The interesting issue, is do you read them? Because feedback normally tells the writer the content is appreciated and useful.

 

Drawing from Actions of Others

ViralHost is known for two things. Great hosting priced to help
you build your business choice. The second thing is we build
leaders, one person at a time.

Since it is not always possible for you to attend our training
conferences, we come to you in Cogs & Logs News and other
media.

Leaders in Training

Two excellent leaders have been stepping forth over the past
summer weeks. Bob Culbertson has provided great insights and
training in Using Surveys.  Surveys are a powerful tool to help
marketers determine subscriber needs.

When time is of the essence for your people, a simple four to
six question survey saves them time getting their message across
to you. Conversions and sales are made advertising to a targeted
market.

Videos are the rage as teachers, promoters and tons of ways you
can reach a very broad market. Bob Culbertson has just finished
showing how easy it is to make a video a day and never lose a
breath.

Thursday night, our second leader will step up. Dale Thomson
will talk about the new rage viralmailers. Are you using them?
Happy with them? Frustrated? Whatever your position, you need
to be at this session. Maybe what you learn will turn your
promotions into success results.

Where? ViralHost Social Community  9pm EST
http://viralhost.com/comm/  join the community and attend.

Back to Blogging.

See how easy it was for me to turn out this blog? I did not have
to know all the answers, instead I can draw on the skills of what
is happening around me. Skills of people willing to share their
expertise with you. Value content that has placed you way ahead
of your competition if you took the training. Otherwise, you now
have a resource you can approach to help you catch up.

Thursday issue I will get into blogs for interest, hobbies and
monetizing. Whether you have a blog or are thinking about it,
the next two issues will help you make sound decisions on which
way to go and what to blog about.

From Loser to Professional In One Easy Decision

http://newsletters.viralhost.com/?p=194Misinformation hits the net at the speed of sound per second. New or experienced, it is easy enough to fall prey to the wrong advice simply because it sounds good coming from the voice of ‘experience.’

Danger! Tread Lightly!    You need a web site

  1.     You don’t need a website
  2.     Do a blog instead
  3.     Use FREE
  4.     Go Pro

Are you confused yet?  There is a lot more that can be added to that list. Instead of bringing up the headaches of what decision to make, let’s clear the air a wee bit.

It’s said affiliates do not need a website. Affiliates can use the promo materials the owners supply. Let the  the owners  worry about hosting and Disc space and bandwidth.

Sounds logical. Then compare what you get as an affiliate using the owner controlled site promotions. When it comes to dollars and cents, that can be anywhere from 10% to 50% depending on the program and rules.

You are stuck using their promo materials. Which can be pretty good or pretty awful, depending on how you want to market. The only thing you can change is owner/program. You have no control.

Of course, you may be comfortable being a free affiliate. It is just like the J.O. B. but your paycheck is every month IF you qualified.

What other choice do you have? It can be time consuming if you try to build a website yourself. Then again, it can be darned expensive having a web site built for you.

Blogging To Success!

How about using a Blog instead? Many a sorry head has begun a fatal trip thinking this is smart. Even if they had a website, they would need a blog to promote it. Now that part is smart thinking.

Here is where they fall down and hard. Go blog, monetize for adsense. UNLESS you are an established blogger with 100s of entries; unless your blog is set up to meet Search Engine qualifications, unless you are recognized as an authority in some niche, you are dead before you start.

If the only place you are an authority, is in your head, then shake it a few times and settle back down on earth. Reality time has a message for you.

From failed $money dreams back to the Future

Your future will be decided on the first steps you take to put you in control of your marketing, websites, blogs and all forms of promotions for any and all products you own or are offered on the net.

If you are short on the skill side for creating a working website and or blog, then you need to think on this offer.

ViralHost Intern or Pro

Thus you get to leverage his excitement to your own website for free for now.

The average price of having a web site built can run anywhere from $500 for a simple two page to $1200 for an index page and then charges per page after.

Using our offer, you have just bought yourself a key to all the free training and support you will need inclusive in this package offer for as long as you maintain hosting with ViralHost.

Are you ready to get started? Our trained staff of web professionals are waiting to hear from you. Don’t take too long. Every time Mike and Sharon produce a new site, there can be a need to up the price from building for FREE.

Do Not Give Up Your Dream

Each person I come in contact with, begin to work with, has a dream. As many people, there are as many dreams.

If  the answer to dreams were apples, I would send each one of them a bushel.

That these beautiful people have a dream is almost revolutionary  in our thirsty, money-grubbing world, but that they have sacrificed so much and are willing to sacrifice more builds on my dream to help them, and others, find their path and succeed.

Web or blog what would work best?
There seems to be some confusion between being an entrepreneur or choosing to be a business builder. The thought that building a blog and followers will be the easier choice for selling products and services that interest them.

From the get-go, both need web hosting. So a domain and hosting become the first steps. Sure there are lots of free blogs and places to host them BUT …

The free hosting companies own your work. How? Most do not offer cpanel where you have control. I heard a new person so happy to learn he was the admin of his blog. Green is green and heart ache is heart ache when the bottom falls out.

He wants to monetize his blog. On a free hosted blog that is not kosher. That is where they can and will shut you down.  Search engines do not approve either. Google loves WordPress  but it must  be hosted if you plan on using adsense or monetize it.

Many new bloggers see adsense as a good addition. Even those bloggers with great experience, and adsense aficionados have lost with Google. What chance does a newbie have?

There is a lot to learn to stay with the dream. The skills learned to make the blog work are the same skills to make the web work.

Top MUST is value content in both. Original, continuous content creation. From the get go the positioning has to be Enterprise.

Did I hear you say you are not interested in SEO? I believe the word is TRAFFIC? If your beautiful blog and or web site need both then you need to understand and work Enterprise.

Whichever you decide, blog or website, or maybe both? Do not give up your dream. Be ready to embrace change, welcome it and get ‘er done!

Have a prosperous Thursday.
