Blogging Tips And Tricks For Beginners

More Blogging Tips And Tricks For Beginners

I was on a webinar today and learned a new blogging trick.

Here is the easy way to get your picture images to be the full width of the no matter what area you are trying to insert them in.

Take this image for example.

 

blogging tips and tricks for beginners

 

but what if you wanted it to be full width of this post column. Well click the image and then click the edit icon in the top left corner. On the edit screen click the advanced tab.

 

blogging tips for beginners

 

See the orange arrows, that’s the size or the image you uploaded (original size), change the width to 100% and leave the height blank. Your  image will now be full width wherever you put it, in a post or in the widget area.

 

Here is the full width image in the post.

Get Paid To Blog Tips

 

OK so lets turn this image into a banner and put it in the right side bar. First we need to check on the image to select it. Then click the insert/edit link symbol in the menu at the top of the blog post. The enter destination URL dialogue box comes up. The URL in the box now is the URL address of the image itself in you blog database. You want to change that so that when someone clicks the image they get redirected to one of your landing pages. So insert your landing page URL in place of the image address URL, and hit update.

Now we hit the HTML tab instead of the visual tab up above the menu and go fetch the HTML code for our image. (when you do this you should start with a new post page, and upload the image so it is the only thing on the page , then the HTML code for the image is very easy to find)

Image HTML code

<a href=”/almostasecret.php?id=lee33″ target=”_blank”><img src=”/lee33/files/2012/11/Get-Paid-To-Blog-Discover-How-NO-BORDER.png” alt=”blogging tips and tricks for beginners” width=”100%” /></a>

Copy this HTML code to your clipboard. Now on the left WordPress menu under Appearance (save a draft of your page first) click Widgets. We want to use a text box, so drag the text box from the center of the page over to the right, dropping it in the position you want your new banner to appear. Now paste the HTML image code into the box and click save at the bottom of the box. When I go to the blog page I see my new banner

And there you see it 100% width in the widget area. (if you were wondering why I have 3 different Empower Network banners here – I was testing to see which one got clicked on the most.) You should now test the banner by clicking on it and make sure it goes to your optin page (with the ?id=YOURID in the URL).

 Another Tip

In the image above, of the edit image dialogue box, see the red arrow, if you are putting a smaller image into a post and wrapping the text around the image, you will want some space between the image and the text. I normally set the Horizontal space to 10 or 15 pixels.

By the way that 100% width tip, I learned that from Chris Record in the second video of the Empower Network $15K Formula Course. That was one of more than a couple of dozen tips he gave in his 90 minuet training video on how to blog properly. Chris has made over $75,000 in his first 6 months at Empower Network by doing nothing else but blogging, and promoting his blog posts so they get lots of traffic. This guy really knows what he is doing.

Starting Your Own Blog? Consider An Alternate Way

Starting Your Own Blog? Here Is The easy Way

Starting Your Own Blog

Starting Your Own Blog

The best answer to the the question about starting your own blog   is with a blog  already set up for you . And here’s the neat part the blog comes with coaching that is laser focused on how to get your blog content to the first page of the search results on Google  . Of course, you get a lot of traffic from the first page .

So lets take a close up  look at Starting Your Own Blog.

I first heard about the Empower Network from my sponsors in Carbon Copy Pro, Aaron and Sophia Rashkin. I went to the sales page and watched the video and I couldn’t believe what I was watching . A blog totally set up for you on a high ranking domain which supposedly would give a huge advantage in getting to page one of Google.  And then to get 100% commissions to resell the membership. Come on – Basically I’d get my own membership site, with monthly residual income, and all the work was being done for me? And then it got crazier still! A second membership site – the Inner Circle monthly training. And even more, 100% commissions on some other  products, like having my own personal high end products to sell.

At first, I thought to myself,  “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”

I got another couple of emails from Aaron Rashkin promoting this “starting your own blog” product.

Now I know Aaron and Sophia  value their reputation very highly. So there had to be something real about the Empower Network.

I watched the video again and started to get a sense of these two guys (David Wood and David Sharpe) wanting to give back to the community. But the reality was that it was only going to cost $25 to take a look at the basic membership, $100 for the inner circle. Now I’ve spent way more than that on info products before that promised half as much.

So for $25 why not take a look.

The Empower Network is the easiest business you will EVER join! , and here is  what I discovered.

You will not believe how easy the system I saw was. . .

Let me show you a list of some of the benefits  that you receive immediately when you Join The Empower Network:

  1.  A simple easy to use back office
  2. Fast start training that is easy to follow

  5. Starting Your Own Blog ? – Get a professional, easy to customize blog already set up for you.
  6. An email system to contact your members  
  7. Laser focused training on getting your blog content ranked in the search engines .

How To Start A Blog Made Simple

How To Start A Blog Is So Easy Anyone Can Do It

How To Start A BlogIt’s Time to get started, but you are still confused about, how to start a blog. You are not comfortable as to where to start. I want to show you that it’s quick and painless by providing you the steps and some tips that really work.

How To Start A Blog – First Step – Define Your Niche

What’s your blog going to be about? Where do your passions lie? What is it that you absolutely love to do. That’s the starting point for a great blog.

If you own a business you love or sell a product or service you ar passionate about, you first blog should probably be related to those interests. Do a little keyword research on the favorite products you offer. You may find a narrower niche that you are really passionate about.

For example. If your business  has to do with pets. You could blog about obedience training, or about how to choose the right pet.

Whatever you choose, the objective should be an authority in the area of expertise that you have chosen. To brand yourself as an expert.

How To Start A Blog – Second Step – Choose The Software Program

There are a few to choose from – WordPress, Blogger, Typepad and Movable Type. But if you want one that is easy to use and customize, the WordPress is your choice. With WordPress you have a lot of tools or plugins to choose from to customize your blog with and most of them are free.

How To Start A Blog – Third Step – Build The Actual Blog

This is where the fun begins. You can approach this in several ways.

1st, you con hire a geek or a designer to do the work for you. But remember this, pretty websites do not necessarily mean more sales and designers don’t know how to t market. Most designers will want you to set up a number of web pages, Just remember you are the one who has to take the time to provide the content for those pages. Your goal is to start blogging to get some leads, so maybe some of those pages can be left for later

Alternative number two is to set up the blog yourself. Here are the steps, buy a domain name, engage a website hosting service, get WordPress installed on your site, find a WordPress theme and get it installed (there are thousands of free ones available) and now it’s time to customize WordPress with some plugins, and adjust the settings. Now it’s time to start blogging, create some new pager, add content and blog posts. If this sounds like too much geeky stuff for you, you can easily find some one on the web or someone local to do some or most of it.. You can also search Google for videos on how to do all of this stuff.

The third alternative is to get a blog already set up for you as part of a membership site that you can join. The membership I use and recommend is the Empower Network. These guys are target focused on training you to get your content found on the first page of the search engines. They accomplish this through their training videos an the blog you get is on a very high ranking domain. As a bonus you get to sell the membership and receive 100% commissions – essentially your own membership site with its recurring income.

How To Start A Blog – Fourth Step – Blog to Your Hearts Content

Are you going to blog to get sale or to provide information? How frequently should you blog? For a hobby blog or general interest blog, consider once a week as the minimum. You want the search engines to pick up your content so don’t blog less than orce a week..

For business bloggers who want lots of traffic to their site, You need to post more often. It’s recommended that you post a piece of content every day. Your goal is to get found on page one of the search engines where all the searchers are. This requires training to understand some simple SEO (search engine optimization) techniques and how to do keyword research. This is the best reason for recommending Empower Network, because of their laser focus on getting content to the first page of the search engines.

Choose how often you want to blog and then set up a schedule to do it. The thing to remember is that your readers will be expecting fresh content regularly and that it is your job to provide it.

How To Start A Blog – The Fifth Step – Get Visitors To Drop by

Once you have something for your visitors to read and look at, It’s time to generate some traffic. You can leave links on social media sites, do social bookmarking, Visit the registries and even buy some advertising. At the Empower Network, this is all covered in the advanced trainings.
