Are you a blogger or someone who is interested in building a blog someday? Have you ever thought of having a blog that is recognized globally? A world class blog that caters to global audience doesn’t only give you greater fame, but it may also provide you bigger fortune. It may sounds happening only in a dream, but it isn’t an impossible dream. With the right steps and strategies, anyone can actually create a world-class blog. Here are 10 quick tips to guide you how to give your blog a world class caliber.
1. Intend to build a world class blog
The first step, of course, is to have a strong desire to building a world class blog. If you only made a blog just to make money online, then it may fall short to becoming global. If you will only blog just to blog, then you will only earn a blog, and not a world-class blog. Thus, have a plan and have a strong will in your heart to achieve a world class blog.
2. Blog your forte
Blog what you are expert of. Blog where you can give your best. Don’t just choose a niche or a topic because it is what’s hot, trending, and where the money flows right now. If you will force yourself to blog a topic you don’t even familiar of just because it’s where you can earn more, you might only end up creating a poor quality blog. If you want to create a world class blog, then choose a topic or a niche that you think you can excel globally.
Remember that if you want to be famous, you have to provide the things that only you can provide. If you want to be a famous blogger, then you also have to blog the things that only you can blog.
3. Get the right design
Dress your blog with the right look. The right design for your blog will depend on your niche. For example, if your blog is about personal development, a minimalist design would be best. If you are blogging about business, then a corporate look is suitable. Don’t make your finance blog looks like a gaming blog. Give your blog a theme or design that fits itself.
4. Register your own unique domain name
Unless you are as popular as Seth Godin, one of recognized best marketer in the world, you can blog using a sub domain from Typepad. But if you’re just starting to build your name, then have your own unique domain name. Having a unique domain name for your blog also builds up your unique brand.
5. Don’t clutter your blog with ads
Make your blog as neat as you can. Make it user-friendly and clean it up from excessive ads. You are their to primarily blog and share useful contents, and not to advertise products. If you want to earn global recognition, you have to make big sacrifices. These sacrifices include the opportunities to instantly earn income through advertising. But don’t worry, once you will earn global recognition, you will also earn even better opportunities to earn. For example, if you are a professional who provides services to clients, expect a significant increase in clients when you become known to the world.
6. Publish world-class blog posts
A blog wouldn’t be a blog without blog posts. Also, a blog wouldn’t be a world class blog without world class blog posts. Thus, put your time, energy, and focus on creating high quality posts. High quality posts are those that are extensive, rich in information, uniquely written, and well-researched. They aren’t the post that are made just to make money or just to blog for the sake of having a post, but they are the contents that are made to give valuable and useful things to users.
Create explosive blog posts that can be heard by the world, and not only by few people. If you need to write a 2,000 word article with several supporting relevant images, then do it. Remember that there are other bloggers who can even write longer than that.
7. Learn from other world class blogs and bloggers
Be a world class spy. Follow other globally known bloggers and learn from them. But remember not to copy their works, but only get ideas on how you can provide better and more unique contents to your blog’s readers. This would also require humility on your side. You have to be humble to admit that you need a mentor or a master to fill your lacking knowledge.
How do you find mentors? Today’s pieces of information are readily accessible and available. You can simply use search engines to find the right bloggers to follow. If you want to excel in business blogging, you can simply type and find the “top 10 business blogs” in the world using Google and begin to study them. If you want to dominate the design niche, then you already know what to do.
8. Join local and international communities
You cannot rule the world alone. Of course you need to win the hearts of some people to start your goal. The people that will support you on your mission can be near you or can be far from you. They can be found offline and online. They can simple be your friends, relatives or your close connections at Facebook. You also have to exert extra effort to connect with people that has the same interest as you have. You may join associations or online communities that are relevant to what you are blogging about. Moreover, if you want to dominate the world, you also have to win the hearts of your own people – your countrymen. So don’t ignore them.
9. Be a better marketer
Targeting the global audience requires more extensive marketing and promotional campaigns. Thus, you have to be a better Internet marketer. You also need to improve your SEO (search engine optimization) and SMM (social media marketing) skills to reach more people who are using search engines and who are hanging out in the social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Linkedin.
Remember that even if you have quality content on your blog, if know one knows about it, your blog will like a treasure hidden in the deep ocean. Hence, you have to learn both how to create quality content and how to promote them to targeted users.
10. Help the world
Blog for a cause; create blog posts that will improve the lives of people. There are many problems that we are facing, such as poverty, war, environmental problems, et cetera. Choose a particular global issue that you believe you can find a solution. If you want to create a world class blog, you have to build a blog that can cause a change to the world. Whatever your niche is, whether it’s about business, marketing, design, technology, or even fashion, you can always find a way to inspire the humanity.
