Five Different Kinds of Blog Posts

Do you have a blog already, but it has been a while since you posted something?

Or perhaps  you thinking of starting a Blog?

To keep your blog fresh and interesting, then you need to post frequently, preferable at regular intervals so your readers have an idea when to expect another instalment. Create different types of posts to keep your readers interested. This also helps you from getting bored with your own blog. It doesn’t matter if you have a blog to make money directly fromit, or you are blogging to drive traffic to someone else’s product to earn affiliate commissions, you need to be aware of the following types of post.

1. The Review Post

Review blog posts can help you to earn income because you review several products, including your affiliate link for each. When reviewing, be unbiased and give an honest review, including both positive and negative comments about the product. Even if you totally loved the product, keep your review balanced by mentioning a few things that could have been improved. Your readers will appreciate your honesty and be more likely to trust your recommendation.

2. The Quick Tip Post

In between your longer posts you can do a “quick tips” type of post; these are approx 150-250 words.We may have a lot of information about our niche that we want to share but it may not rate a full length post. In that case, post a quick tip. Focus on ONE key area of the niche. For example, “How to connect a new monitor” would be a quick tip article for a beginner computer users blog.

3. The List Post

Blog readers love lists! The most popular blogs make good use of lists. You can create lists that fit with any topic imaginable. This is a great way to convey information online because it can be easily scanned by web readers who are “skimmers.” You can also create lists of different ways to accomplish a goal in your niche. “10 Ways To Prepare Your Soil For Planting” would be a great list for gardeners.

4. The Interview Post

Interviews will require some preparation, but they are very valuable to your blog. Interview someone in your niche and then share the results of that interview with your readers. This will not only provide valuable content for your blog, but will also bring more traffic. Most likely, the person you interview will also publicize the event on their blog or Website, directing traffic to your Blog.

5. The Instruction Post

This is similar to Quick Tips as you are providing your readers with valuable information. However, these Instruction posts will go into much more detail on a certain topic. Sometimes your instructions can even be divided into two or three posts or courses. Look at comments and questions from your readers to find what topic would be most beneficial to them.

As you blog, remember that your readers like variety. Don’t always write the same type of post, but add something different to keep it fresh and new.

John Thornhill’s Coaching Program

Report at the end of John Thornhill’s 16 Week Coaching Program

I am very grateful to John for putting his coaching program together and wish I had been able to do it several years ago before I got into the bad habit of flitting from one idea to another and getting nowhere financially.

Each time I discovered a great new product, I had to have it while there was a special offer, the result being that I didn’t focus on one process and apply myself to it. For example, I purchased John’s product, Resale Rights Blueprint when it first came out, approx one year ago, worked through about the first 4 days, then drifted off to look at something else. If I had just continued with Resale Rights Blueprint till the end, it would have been bringing me in a nice income by now as I had all the information I needed to launch a successful business.

So when I was able to join the 16 week coaching program, I jumped at the chance, believing it would force me to stay on one course. In fact I am still behind. The 16 weeks have gone by and I still don’t have my product, Online Home Business Success on clickbank, but I don’t feel that I have failed this time because I am still working on getting it listed and I expect this to be completed in one or two more weeks.

The experience has brought home to me again that it doesn’t matter how good the course material is, if you don’t put the work in, you won’t succeed. We are each responsible for making success happen in our own lives, no-one else can do it for us, no matter how much they would like to or how good their programme is.

John’s training material is excellent, very detailed and easy to follow, even for beginners. Although I was already familiar with many of the processes in the earlier weeks, such as getting domain name, hosting and FTP, the videos were still very helpful as a refresher and to learn a different and sometimes easier way of doing things. The later lessons have expanded and focussed my internet marketing education so that I now believe I have enough knowledge to create and market many more new products.

This increased confidence in my own ability to succeed with internet marketing, despite all the doubts and negative comments of people around me is a big bonus. Having the coaching material always available for students to refer back to at any time is like the safety net under a tight-rope walker.

I understand that it won’t happen overnight, but I have a determination to make this succeed that I didn’t have before.

Summing up, I thank John sincerely for putting this program together, for all the help he gives his students and for the value he puts into all his products. His genuine desire to help people shows through and is greatly appreciated.
