To become a professional and successful blogger it is important to learn a few simple key factors that can turn amateur blogging into that of a pro in a short amount of time.
The effort of commitment that you are willing to put into your blog is a big factor that will ultimately determine the amount of success that you will be able to enjoy in the long run. Is the commitment worth it to you? Trust me, the answer will certainly show in the content of your blog. It can be beneficial to set some goals, and even a time schedule you plan to devote to your blog. Each of these is a factor that can help the running of your blog go a lot smoother.
You should commit to adding content regularly on your blog. Depending on your lifestyle and your daily routine, adding information at least three times a week would be sufficient. There are some people however, that choose to respond to posts on their blog and add more content several different times every single day. Find an amount that fits your individual preference, but just make sure that you plan on a regular routine to give your blog the attention that it needs.
It is true that having a routine can help tremendously, but more than simply marking certain days or times on your calendar to devote attention to your blog, you will also need to spend some time and thought into enjoyable and informative blog posts. Post content that will appeal to the interest of your readers, and have them begging for more. Before posting the material you have created, you will want to take the necessary time to proofread it to make sure that there are no grammatical and spelling errors, or typos.
Some bloggers find it much more enjoyable to work with a partner. This is an advantage that can provide readers with a wide range of different ideas and thoughts, and it can also lessen the time that each of you will have to spend working on the blog posts. Using a guest blogger is another option that some prefer to use during times when you simply do not have the time to devote to your blog.
Taking the time to consider each of these aspects as you are developing content and posting to your blog, will prove to provide you with a much more enjoyable experience, and a blog that increases in popularity.
If you are creative enough then you open yourself to the great outside world opportunities, all the business or the decisions you take in life have many an uncertainty and risk factors involved but we have to face them and not turn away from it. If you think of Marla you might well wonder how she is having a ball, how she has been the queen of roost and what all things does marla know that Lou doesn’t know. To put it straight and perfect you should first understand what qualification a person is having, not just the book knowledge a person has to be creative from inside, Marla is one of those consummate creative entrepreneur, she has one of the best qualities that anyone would vouch for, being a creative thinker, if you have yourself those inner qualities you can do whatever you wish in life, people get things done when they are serious of their thoughts and serious about achieving their targets. Marla has a reason; people love her because of the reason that she doesn’t fear failure and is always ready to work with big or small enterprises, even an ally. Its not just her niche in artistic world she also has great entrepreneurial vision which allows her to do magical things that leads to great opportunities just out of no where, her mind is that of a business savvy mind which always is looking out for something new.
For mastering in things you want to achieve in life you have to have that creativity in you and the 3 critical skill sets which are mentioned below:
All the successes in life are not achieved with a click of a mouse you need to master them by putting your skills and sharpening your skill set with due knowledge setting your objectives straight.
- Collaboration – you have to connect to your partners to come out with good solution that will help you to keep pace with the competition, it will help you to work in close bonds with clients, partners, investors and professionals.
- Creativity – you can create new ideas by generating them, evaluate them with effect and take actions to run them in the company that will help you increase your sales and provide good services too.
- Entrepreneurship – identify the opportunities that come your way in market place or also in big companies, change your skills into actions and implement them.
We have known and we have seen that entrepreneurs totally rely on the creativity aspect and produce wealth accordingly if you see the modern day entrepreneurs you can see the concept of wealth creation goes even further as John Howkins rightly said that creative entrepreneurs are those who use their creative power to create wealth which lies in themselves rather than using outside resources.
By using their creative power entrepreneurs create value for themselves and for the company, the value is not just the physical products but these are some of the most demandable intangible assets like the brand name of the company, reputation, intelligence and network of partners. They are so used to projecting new things and bring up a desired position in the market and elsewhere in the world. The people who are creative entrepreneurs are not always freelancers, some are bound by company regulations and restrictions but they can surely help to innovate and bring up new things in the company. Freelancers are the people who do their work independently they are not bound by any regulations, they are paid by companies or individuals for particular task they are asked to do. This is the way they earn their livelihood, they charge their fees by the projects they day, on an hourly basis or daily basis depending on their work type. Freelancers are always in search of new challenging work which will give them proper edge over their other counterparts who are working for companies. Creative entrepreneurs are those individuals who are always ready to grab new opportunities thereby increasing their own expectation, and they produce results accordingly, the very same outlook brings them good opportunities and create a system for themselves and others around them that will help in wealth generation. Now let’s take a quick look at Mary’s story.
There was this young girl who always wanted to draw pictures, at the age of 11 she had enough of skills that her family created a studio specially for her by emptying their closet this was the place where she used to sit and draw the pictures for hours together without worrying about summers or winters. Slowly and gradually as the days passed she turned from a girl to woman and still kept on drawing pictures. She finally took up a job at some ad agency and also did freelancing work for clients with commission but she was not very happy with the type of the work she was doing that of drawing things which were ordered so there she started with her licensed drawings which she herself designed and sold to other greeting card companies and there grew her income level and her satisfaction for the job increased.
Not only just greeting card industry, she ventured out into other media and also hired staff to look after her wide number of fields. Even today she keeps drawing all her licensed designs and her staff get them reformatted and get them licensed for calendars picture, cards, animated films, t-shirts, mugs, books, etc. she became so famous in just no time that she launched her national magazine with her own name “Mary Engelbreit’s home companion”. If she wouldn’t have taken this step of doing some thing of her own, she had be freelancer or a contract author with companies to design their products. Mary would surely be happy individual with income and all but wouldn’t have got the satisfaction of her skills what she has today. She is now an entrepreneur, a creative entrepreneur just through her talent and hopes she has reached such great height, she now licenses her art and has built up a big business behind her name. she has already touched $1 billion of sales through retail selling, the art lovers know her name well and is an inspiration to millions of people world wide. She has also partnered with charity first book where she promotes literacy by giving millions of books to children belonging to the parents of low income group.
The concept of conventional thinking pursues the world of art and business as 2 different entities, they don’t have anything in common. We are all here to think of all the uncreative ways through which we can look at things in the case of Mary Engelbreit we can see the qualities of both an artist and that of an entrepreneur both of them working in great harmony.
While still many of us keep deciding out future plans till we finish our high school, there was this girl who made a firm decision of being an artist some day just at the mere age of 11, she has taken her company to amazing heights through her sheer hard work and success and of course dedication. Mary Engelbriet studios have acquired world famous name today with global licensing of her designs and she has entered in different arenas like the retail business, she is the same girl who still sits with her designs with same enthusiasm and with the same wonder, the same hopes and the same imagination.
Take the case of Caterina Fake, a designer, she started out with plain designer and was later working as Art director in some famous company, she also started with photo sharing portal which is today world famous. her famous business interests include sitting on the boards of creative commons and Etsy, she also takes interest in speaking at conferences and also gives lectures at universities and takes initiative in advising the starters in the field. She also takes deep interest in writing and also writes some fiction stories and also takes keen interest in poetry, art installations and making sculpture designs. Do you think her business is any different from the works of a creative artist?
Creative has no end. Marla wouldn’t have said so, she is herself “Artist in business” promoting business line, she describes herself as being an artist who is involved in the business and also an entrepreneur whose main line of business consists of creative art. Today we can term anyone as an entrepreneur because somewhere or the other we have created that niche for ourselves and others so that we can pursue our own life goals. Lou is finding that in full fledged, working out on his costs factor, the fears of steady job and searching a predictable career path, these are now only historical relics that change with time. The risk here is that of security the steps we take while adopting and entrepreneurial approach, we take up responsibilities and try to develop our skills in that field, we build up our network of clients, partners, investors and also build up a good reputation and proper skill set to achieve our goals. If we are working somewhere, you always learn something or the other, a learning experience while earning money and its an investment in itself that will remain with you as a knowledge forever.
This sounds like a real great news for someone like Jack who loves his independence unlimitedly. He always has something or the other to offer for some creative side of the projects currently on. He will go on and on till the time he become bored of his work and is made redundant, he keeps writing blogs every evenings through those flexed muscles landing him a book to write may not be a bad option after all, he has his collaborations with people around the globe. He knows that he can make it really big by writing blogs and make it big and take it too bigger heights, its not just about achieving one’s dreams it actually takes more than your dreams to succeed in the path you have selected.
The economy today is full of creative artist where people want to see something new and something which has good logic. It might sound easy to come up with creative ideas but only the artist knows what it takes to during brainstorming sessions. We can start up with a total different avenue in the field of art and creative. Please do not forget to write your comments regarding the things I have written and tell me your views of being an entrepreneur, the challenges that you will face and also using your creative side at the same time, etc.
There have been, and still are, several rumors that are continuously been passed all around the world concerning the history of affiliate marketing and when it very first originated. This extremely popular and very effective method for advertising that is used by an endless number of merchants and website owners all through cyberspace was originally invented in the latter part of 1994 by cdnow.com. It went on to later be pioneered in 1996 by Amazon.com.
Affiliate marketing is a very easy and effective way that provides online merchants that sell various products and services to share revenue that is owned through this type of advertising with a variety of different owners of websites on the Internet. A large number of entrepreneurs simply know this form of advertising by other names such as partner programs and associate programs.
The fact that affiliate marketing has earned a spot to be known as the most popular method that is used worldwide by an endless amount of businesses as their number one choice in an advertising campaign, is simply due to the fact that it is so easy and convenient to use and its effectiveness in driving large numbers of traffic to their business website, earning them higher levels of revenue is astounding.
When an online business or affiliate makes the decision to take advantage of the benefits that are offered in affiliate marketing, there are four separate methods that can be applied to either their website, eZine, newsletter, and other channels of marketing. These methods would include Pay-Per-Click (PPC) that also includes Cost-Per-Click (CPC), Pay-Per-Impression, and Contextual Advertising. Search engine marketing or (SEM) is generally what Contextual Advertising and Pay-Per-Click Advertising is referred to.
When website owners and online business merchants choose to use either of these forms of affiliate marketing, the revenue that is earned when a user clicks on the advertisement that has been placed on the owners website, is shared between the two.
In various other forms of ad campaigns, there is generally a tremendous amount of time and effort that is involved in the planning and executing of the technique that has been chosen. This, however, is not a problem that is involved at all in these popular choices of advertising.
Since the early stages of its use, affiliate marketing has become known as a leading edge for businesses to have the ability to earn large amounts of revenue that is consistently coming into their company, simply by having their advertisements placed on several different owner websites all throughout the online community. The strategies that are used as to the placement, ensuring that they are placed on relevant owner websites is of course one of the factors that merchant’s and website owners alike need to take into consideration when they choose this form of ad marketing.
