💡How To START A BLOG in 2019! How to Blog by Lori Ballen


Hi! Today I’m going to show you
how to create the perfect blog. This is going to be about a specific
blog post creating your article, how to do it, what it should look like, what it should include, how to please the audience and Google
how to include your affiliate links or products We’re going to get that all done today. My name is Lori Ballen and I’m
a six figure affiliate marketer. I also own a top real estate
business in Las Vegas, a weight loss coaching company, a marketing company – BallenBrands and I’m kind of doing all
things digital marketing, so these are the strategies I
use for all of my businesses. Now I want to show you here really quick. If you were to go over to Clicky, I’m going to put a link to the
tools that I use in this video, Clicky is a quick analytic software that
I love and it gives me an added glance look at how my content is doing, how my traffic is doing,
that type of thing. Now what I just want to show you today, I’m pulling this up for a specific reason. I want to show you just
for the last seven days, what is bringing the most traffic to my
website and the number one thing right here is a hyperlocal time sensitive
blog and this happens to be from my real estate business and the blog is called
“99 Things to Do in Las Vegas”. Now I tend to drip out these hyperlocal blogs all
throughout my real estate website because I’m working diligently, one prove to
Google that I am the authority on Las Vegas, which helps my real estate rankings and
it’s also good for the consumer to see that we are specialist in
this particular area as well. Not just real estate,
but we know our town. It brings in locals and then Google stores
a memory of that relationship between that visitor and my website, which means my website’s going to show
up more often for that visitor when they do searches related to
Las Vegas and or real estate. And it’s also good for my affiliate marketing
and my Google ads to have the traffic on there. So it serves multiple purposes. What I want to show you is the first one, top one for last seven
days is my Valentines blog second one is my homepage, third one is my blog all about
the “Las Vegas Arts District” Next one is IDX pages, IDX pages for Homes for Sale. here’s another blog all
about “Las Vegas Utilities” here’s another blog “When is Spring
Break in Las Vegas” here’s another blog
the “Las Vegas Real Estate Market Report”. here’s another blog
“Dueling Piano Bars” okay, so you’re getting the idea. Now this carries over
on any of my websites. If I were to scroll down here
to my Midlife Monarch blog, which is my niche website for
women in their midlife years. And here we have, how to remove eye bags. should you get Botox? eye make up for the women over 50. and these are all all blogs So I can show you this again and again. Here’s my weight loss coaching website. KetoDays.com.
We have the benefits of Himalayan salt, we have a recipe, then we have a cheat meal tips,
that’s a blog. Is Cinnamon Keto friendly,
that’s a blog. And we have a recipe blogs. so you’re getting the idea. Today., let’s just go ahead and
go over to my newest website, which is called The7thStream.com. And this is my website all for training
entrepreneurs on how to do affiliate marketing. So today we’re going to create a new blog. So all I have to do is go up to new post. What I’m going to show you, we’re not going to write the whole blog, don’t worry, but I’m going to show you the formula. Now I use the same recipe
over and over and over again, and I have not always done this. I’ve been blogging since blogging
was a thing and it was terrible. It was ugly, there was no white space. It was just a big chunk of text. But that’s how we all blogged
back when AOL first said, you’ve got mail, But over time we’ve got all these
fantastic content management systems and editors that allow us to create a much
cleaner article and include lots of great things that are valuable to the visitor. And when I blogged,
my focus is all on the visitor. I want them to have a great experience. What are they going to find valuable, what’s important to them? And then I’m going to drip in my affiliate
links or my products or my services, that kind of thing. Bu my focus is on how do
I give the reader value. How do I give them value that
nobody else is giving them. What can I do differently? So this blog today I’m writing
is all going to be about Let me do something here.
I’m going to do a little study. It’s about keywords. So I’m going to type in keyword tools, what I want to kind of see as what
people are researching right here. So I’m going to look at that That’s funny. I was going to go with free keyword tool. That was kind of my
instinct was to go free. That’s what I’m gonna do. I was spot on. Free keyword tool. So we’re going to go free keyword tool. Now I’m going to write. I’m just kind of put up what I would
do here so that you guys can see it. I’m not going to write
all the words right now. I’m going to come back and
do that after this video. free keyword tool First thing you want to make
sure of is that your URL is the right URL. So right here you see where this says
permalink and WordPress is automatically assigning a title. Now watch what happens. This is the generic one because we’re in
preview mode but watch when I hit saved draft. By the way, I’m using WordPress. that is my content management system and
I’ve used a ton of different platforms and this is by far my favorite. If you don’t yet have a website, I’ve got a couple of options for you. In this video link you’re going to
find a link to wealthy affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate offers SiteRubix, WordPress websites, and for a very low price, you can actually get 50 websites

those directly and you’re part of a forum that teaches you how to
do affiliate marketing. So it’s a really cool place to be. There’s also a keyword tool, not free. But there’s a keyword tool, you can register your domains. So check out my link in this video. I do benefit if you make a purchase. I also own a marketing

we can talk about that. All right, so after I put in the title and
save the draft and I click on this, I’m going to be able to see what URL WordPress is assigning this page. Now this is exactly what I want it to be. Free Keyword Tool. I like it to have my key word in that URL, it doesn’t need to be
in the top level domain, not this top part, The 7th Stream that doesn’t matter but in the slug everything that comes after the slash I want my keyword in there and my keyword that
I’m actually targeting for this blog is free keyword tool the long form
