So as I explained in “Blog writing from a Old School Internet Geek”, I wanted to share my journey building a good blog, I have decided to build a Technology small business blog around my small consulting business, what I have come up with here are some factors I think are important in building a successful small business blog, I have 9 or 10 Ideas so I will break this section into 2 separate blog postings, I will link to all of them at the end for easy access.
1. First decision in the creation of my small business blog was deciding what type of customers I am looking for and where do they come from, I also wanted to make sure I can provide content that will help them, also important is finding out where they hang out when online, sites or related content, maybe forums and even chat rooms.
5. Next thing I decided to do was setup my Social media accounts, I will list the few that I used, there are other options, browse around and choose the ones you think will help, or match your Niche, I decided to keep my personal social media accounts separate from my business, depending on your Niche you can decide to do either, Google+ and Facebook will allow you to create business pages, so you can separate them.
Sofar this is where I am at in launching a blog, I have focused on launching a Small Business blog, this seemed to me to be the best choice since I will be applying these ideas to my blog at www.tech4000.us, you can apply this setup to any type of blog with little modification.I would love to hear any other ideas you might have that can help anyone get started in launching a small business blog.
