as Martin Luther King said about a treaty the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago or today second best times a day the best time to start a blog was 5 years ago but the second best time is today I’m gonna go over all the steps of how to set up a blog why you want to do it so hang tight after the brief intro will dig right in and we’ll get started [Music] [Music] hey guys this is Ben Arkell passive automation comm have an awesome video for you today about how how to start a blog now a lot of people might have given up on blogs you shouldn’t have a buddy of mine who started a blog six months ago now he’s showing up on the first page of Google rankings getting a lot of free organic traffic leading to conversions so I have some notes down here I’m going to be referencing as we go but this is my channel and Arkell passive income automation if you do the favor of hitting that subscribe button and the bell notification you’ll be notified when it come out with new videos feel free to browse in this video section check out all the videos we have to offer there’s a lot of great content you can learn a lot of stuff that I’ve learned learnt the easy may have been watching a video instead of doing the hard way but let’s jump right in and talk about a blog why a blog okay a blog is a great long-term strategy so you’re not starting a blog to get rich today right that’s just not gonna happen it’s a long-term strategy it’s a inorganic strategy meaning people that are searching on Google or that are clicking a link and social that you’ve posted or they’ve seen someone else share something they’re gonna find your blog that way and so it’s a great way if you don’t have money to put behind ad spend you can just put relevant content content out that answers a question and people can find your blog I want to show you as an example let’s flip this next page my blog passive automation calm that I just started in February and March I was getting it all set up and so you’ll see I had 55 views and 49 news those views were probably more of me clicking on my own articles and trying to figure stuff out but I want to show you the drill that happens went from 49 use of March 213 and April in May to 450 June 430 kind of it stabilized July 534 another little bump August 5 in September so far 500 and we still have a week left so I’ll by the end of September of more than I had in July so it’s going to keep drawing what’s going to happen though if there’s gonna be another bump and then I’m gonna start being in a thousand a month and then I’ll probably stable stabilized flatlines a little bit and then it’s gonna go to five thousand and ten days should keep growing okay and that’s what you want it’s gonna it’s an organic strategy it’s a long-term strategy my other blog called to share calm four years ago I was getting you know a couple thousand views a month now I’m getting 200,000 views a month okay it works but you gotta be in it for the long term okay all the notes for this video I’m gonna have up I’m gonna have on my blog this is to go to pass of automation calm how to start a blog for beginners step by step I haven’t finished all of the details okay but I will and I’ll post a link in the description and so might not be active right away but you can come back and reference that go to my website so the first thing I wanted at that touch on real quick is when you start a blog is declaring your purchase and finding your niche a lot of people hear this and they go and like this is the most annoying thing ever but if you get very if you can do a great job of nailing down what you’re interested in I I recommend you do something you’re interested in because if not you’re not gonna want to write content about it my one blog called the share is about religious stuff and really just stories that are interesting to me pass of automation comments about people finding freedom through the marketing of passive income which is really interesting to me okay so don’t just say oh I I know that a big market for car battery car batteries I’d love that I know for car batteries and I see those margins and I want Celes f well if you’re not going to be interested of writing about car batteries don’t go into that niche okay so what are you interested in now if you’re gonna have other people write content for your website then fine maybe you don’t need to be interested in that I know somebody who you created a blog just specifically for clickfunnels and I don’t think he really cares but yes someone else write the content so that’s not that big of a problem but the more you can niche down and solve a specific problem and be the resource leader Google’s gonna reward you for that okay now some thinking to consider when you get better to trying to find your niches are other people interested so if you are interested in sewing on a yacht are other people adjust and so another yacht like if you’re writing about articles about how to stabilize your hand when you’re sewing and yah and all this stuff it’s probably not too many people who like that so you also need to be aware of the fact that there has to be potential readers okay guys and the last thing you want to consider niches are their products you can sell to them are there things that you can review things that you can offer if not you probably don’t want to spend your time building up this you know all this content if you can’t make money so but it is some research there okay now I want to move quickly through this I don’t want to spend a ton of time but I do want to make sure you understand what the next steps would be K so as far as a blog set up what you’ll need is a domain name the URLs up here like passive automation com that’s something you need to select and it has to be unique no one else can have that so there’s some great resources you Bluehost can help you out there’s other resources like site ground I prefer site ground what I can do is sign crown so they do web hosting they do domain names I can go to site ground I’ll have a link in my article but I can basically go to them and go in the chat say hey I want to start a blog I want this URL they’re like hey I’ll check you can see if it’s available and they’ll check it for you you can also I think on this blog post I’ll have here you’re gonna actually type in to see a Bluehost if there’s a different domain name available you can do the same on the site crown okay but you can contact site ground I did this on chat I’m like I want this URL they said okay and they found it for visit hey I’m registered for use like 20 bucks it here to register $15.99 so they did that for me and then I also need web hosting and web hosting is where all of your files and all your data is stored and SiteGround does that Bluehost does it as well there’s some other ones but I recommend psycho Bluehost is also a good apps good option and in in the article I have I have affiliate links to both of those if you want to look more into them but SiteGround you can get that set up once you do that your very next step is you are gonna do what you’ll do is you actually install your blog software which I recommend WordPress and now this is within sight ground the back end so once they’ve created that domain for you and then you’ve told psyche on hey I want to set up an account with you say okay this set up and then all you do is basically click this button and install it and support can help you with that but WordPress for those who don’t know it’s an open source software to create websites and blogs it’s the best out there there’s really not much in the debate you’re gonna work press org and learn more about it if you want to ah the link as well in my article so now that you’ve done that you have everything set up it’s time to like do the meet of the whole of the blog which is creating content it’s the hardest thing to do right creating content thinking of ideas so I’m gonna give you some tips for content on a blog so there’s a website called answered the public alright this is pretty funny guy you just stand-in there if you kind of waiting think we did you can basically enter any keyword and he’ll tell you what content so like if you type in let’s just type in like airplanes just for the heck of it and get questions and what it’s gonna do is gonna search the internet and it’s going to create a list of questions which you can use to basically answer on your blog so here we go you’re gathering your data this may take some time but okay here you go like there’s all these lists our airplanes bad for the environment our airplane safer than cars how our kids are designed to handle turbulence when did airplane start vite when today orphans come out why airplanes don’t fly faster so you can see there’s just tons of information airplanes for sale airplanes for sale cheap airplanes can’t fly over kaaba their pens can be hacked in comparisons like airplanes and submarines everybody know ships so it’s very very very helpful information you can see what people are searching for what questions they have what comparisons are looking at and you can use this the base as a starting point for content do you want to create another thing that’s that’s a really good of content idea Chris digital did this he’s a buddy of mine he has six best affiliate marketing Facebook groups for serious affiliates what he does is just basically just share his information about what’s relevant to his niche and he highlighted six groups of people on Facebook that have good groups this one is automation nation he pits this list out of main mission nation and what he did and explaining about this group because what it is how many members but what he’s also doing is he has affiliate links to this build to preneur site yes affiliate links to this course okay so what he’s doing is providing information but he’s also putting his affiliate links in there he’s also doing is he’s creating rapport with his people because Spencer sees that Chris wrote this article about it and Spencer’s a little flattered right expensive feels good about himself Chris feels good that Spencer feels good you know here’s another example Jacob Jacob Chris is another person that Chris mentioned and he another link to Chris’s course so excuse me Jacobs course so Chris is providing this information so what you can do in whatever niche you are look at the people around you who are impact people and write about them right share information about them that’s a great way to create content and build bridges and people like to be highlighted okay so what I’ll do is if I’m on Facebook and I see some and post anything that can a group around their own status I think awesome that has a lot of great information what are those I’ll save that in Facebook I’ll save that post under blog ideas and what I’ll do is I’ll reach out so as an example this post I have I haven’t finished it yet it’s just in draft mode but this guy named Sam Richard in a group he shared tent-like what would you do to make your first $1,000 in affiliate Commission if you had to start from scratch and he listed ten things and it was incredible everybody in the group that read it was like wow Sam this is awesome this is the best answer I couldn’t have said it better so I reached out to salmon I said Sam I love what you said I’ve seen recorded a podcasts and mentioned you know your comment that’s okay I also want to write a blog post about it is that a right and he got back to me said yeah man that’s awesome I really appreciate it we would appreciate the shout out if you’ll just link to my blog which is chill reptile column just put that in there but he was flattered right I have content it’s a win-win the cool thing too about this is later on Sam invited me to this like private chat group in Facebook with some other people and he would have never done that because he didn’t know who it was but the fact that I hi
