I know just how you feel. This has happened to me more times than I care to remember. It usually goes like this: I write a blog post, I love it and I start promoting the heck out of it.

A different plan of action would be to produce effective blog posts about different successful people within your niche and their lists of accomplishments. You are doing nothing but flattering them where they deserve. This will drive many readers to you and your blog post will spread around because you made the effort to put together a list, which is beneficial to you. There are plenty of bloggers who utilize this plan and it is easy to implement in any niche. For example, if your blog is in the “weight loss” niche, you can talk about “Top Weight Loss Blogs to Check Out”. If you do this in the right manner, this will bring you plenty of traffic.

If you’d like to create new targeted search engine pages for your site without needing to hand-code a new page, or fire up your HTML editor every time, you may enjoy blogging. You log in to your blog admin panel, type your thoughts, proofread, press publish.

Developing a new mindset will help you hang in there for the duration while you become a successful blogger. Better things will happen in your life when you can learn to grind it out to the finish line.

The easiest plan for making your blog post a lot more appealing is to stake a strong claim on a topic, give your opinion and then ask your readers to consider what was said. Your goal is to create an interactive post that gets tons of comments. This is a common plan that is ignored by plenty of blog owners.

Give your readers an impulsive reason to optin to your email subscribers’ list. Offer a valuable free report or audio series, an mp3 interview, some templates, some software, a big discount on your products – whatever you like, but make it exciting, make it snappy (next 36 hours only!) and make an article out of it.

This might seem like “duh” advice, but make sure that what you are writing is relevant to your target market. If what you’re writing isn’t something that is going to help them solve a problem, or learn more about your topic then they are going to lose interest. Sometimes as an expert writer it can be easy to get hung up on writing about topics that are of interest to YOU instead of your target market. Obviously these can go hand in hand, but make sure that what you write about isn’t relevant to other professionals in your field, but rather to those that you serve.

A word of warning is that you will not get every job you apply for. Employers must get 100s of applicants for one job decreasing the chances of you getting it. However, if you don’t get many replies to job offers, don’t give up. The right job will turn up for you in time.
