First thing before you start blogging, determine what you are blogging about? Generally, blogs are created for personal use such as a journal, daily adventures, tips and tutorial, photo blog, politic, business and whatever ideas they want to express online or maybe sharing ideas like this [oh sorry, just kidding].

So, if you are thinking of creating a blog for your Rabbit Air MinusA2 reviews, you need to consider some points that could possibly help you get through and make your blog one of the interesting blogs online.

  1. Consider your blog readers

Doesn’t matter what blog you are working on, whether for personal or for business purpose, try to make your readers interested and enjoy reading your blog. Hence, it is very important to come with a write up that everybody can understand your intention. Imagine when you read somebody else blog, how did you feel, did you enjoy?

  1. Include some pictures in your blog

Pictures speak a thousand words. To make your blogging worth the browsing effort of your readers, it would be extremely nice if you will put some pictures in it.

Starting Your First Business Website

How to create a website from scratch? This may appear to be a tough question for people who are not familiar with the subject. But if you already know the basics of how to create a website from scratch, this will no longer be a difficult matter.

Think of a Domain Name

Much like developing a diet for cystic acne, if you want to know how to create a website from scratch, you have to start with its basic elements first. So, the first thing that you should think about is the domain name. Basically, this element is the name or brand of your site, an example of this is www.theblogstream.com.

But in coming up with a domain name, be sure that it is closely related to the contents that you are planning to publish on the site. For instance, do not create a website with a domain name related to food if you are planning to write about gadgets there. Then, make sure that it is easy to remember and it is catchy.

Look for a Web Host

Once you have decided on the domain name, look for a web host. Examples of these are bluehost.com, iPage, Justhost.com, Web.com and GoDaddy.com. The advantage of having a web host is that you will be provided a package that will enable you to set up your website easily without going through complex computer codes.

Remember though that not all of these are made to cater to everyone’s needs. Thus, when choosing a web host, think about your requirements first like the amount of web space you need, your advertising preferences, the technical support of the host, its reliability, the budget that you have, its offered bandwidth and others.

Plan the Contents

The next thing that you should do is plan the contents of your website. This includes the layout, images, texts and other factors that can make your website visually stimulating, informative and marketable.

However, there are many things that you should remember too when creating contents for your site. Among the main elements that you should think about is that you have to make sure that it is related to your brand and it is relevant to what your targeted visitors are expecting to see. Then, see to it that your contents are picked up by search engines easily so people can quickly find it. Next, it should be intelligibly crafted and creatively made in order for it to establish its authority on the niche or products and services that you are featuring.

Making Money from It

After setting up your website, think how you can make money out of it. Set up the payment options of your clients. Also, look for advertisers who want to feature their own products or services – such as if they sell an air purifier for allergies – into your website.

Make It Visible

Last but not least, carefully plan on how you can make your website visible in search engines. You can either hire professional Search Engine Optimization (SEO) service providers or do it your way. If you are saving on your finances, you may want to promote your site on your own. There are many tips on how to do it that can be found online anyway. But if you want a more effective way to make your site visible in search engines and maximize your potential earnings, you may want to hire experts that will help you with SEO.

How the Web Has Changed Business

image-7

It’s a fact that has only become truer as the Web has changed the face of media and exponentially increased the volume of content we’re exposed to on a daily basis. Five times as many people read the headline as read the copy. And with social media, that can have some unintended consequences.

This morning, while skimming Facebook posts, I saw the image of the best zero turn mower popping up repeatedly in my news feed. Because I saw it so many times, I clicked through, curious to see how the comments played out (e.g., what percentage of commenters supported each candidate). Politics aside – I was shocked to see that the overwhelming number of commenters were actively opposed to the Romney Plan as outlined in the image.

Talk About Shock!

Why was I so shocked? Not because I’m revealing some political inclination, but because, after reviewing the 300 most recent comments (admittedly, I didn’t have time to review all 43,000 comments, and counting, for sentiment), I found only 4 Romney supporters.

And yet – even though the commenter (whose name has been blacked out for privacy reasons) in my feed was very opposed to the plan, the post actually helped Romney’s PR team spread their message.

Let’s look at why:

In a news feed full of text, a large, brightly colored image with bold, large font text captures attention. The most prominent part of the status update is the image itself, not the commenter’s status or text.

The first thing I’ve seen in my feed is the Romney team’s message. Assuming, like many Facebook users, that I’m skimming through “headlines” to get a gist of what’s going on in my network today, I’ll see the image (over and over), and the implication is that these people have endorsed the message in the image they’re sharing. Statistically – for every person who takes the time to read further, FIVE more will see the image (the headline), absorb that content, and move on.

If I’m actually curious enough about that particular user’s sentiment, I’ll take note that (in much smaller font), the user has commented on the photo – but the comment isn’t visible for me to see. In this case, I’ll have to dig through the recent comments in a string of more than 43,000. And unless I have a particularly vested interest in this particular person’s political views, I’m not going to spend that kind of time.

What About You?

How does that play out for the average Facebook user? According to the social network, the average Facebook user has 190 friends. That means that, for every 33 people who will take the time to read beyond your image, 157 will read the content of the image alone and move on. At time of posting, based on those figures, the commenters of these images exposed 6.8 MILLION of their friends to the message in the image alone, while only 1.4 million actually clicked through to examine the individual comments and overall sentiment of the Coway AP-1512HH review.

So, with the type of cursory glance that most of my network will take at my posts, or that yours will take at yours (especially if you have a high number of Facebook friends), I’m left with the impression that you support the Romney Plan. And in 296 cases – 98.67 percent – that is the exact opposite impression.

I’m reminded of the movie Private Parts and an exchange between “Pig Vomit” and a researcher:

  • Researcher: ‘The average radio listener listens for eighteen minutes. The average Howard Stern fan listens for – are you ready for this? – an hour and twenty minutes.’
  • Pig Vomit: ‘How can that be?’
  • Researcher: ‘Answer most commonly given? “I want to see what he’ll say next.”‘
  • Pig Vomit: ‘Okay, fine. But what about the people who hate Stern?’
  • Researcher: ‘Good point. The average Stern hater listens for two and a half hours a day.’
  • Pig Vomit: ‘But if they hate him, why do they listen?’
  • Researcher: ‘Most common answer? “I want to see what he’ll say next.”

While these pro-Obama commenters aren’t listening to hear what will be said next, they are doing more for the Romney PR team than his supporters to spread his message and “boost his ratings.”

What are your thoughts on the virality of ads such as these?
