In as much as you would want to run a business blog successfully, it’s worth finding out which blogging platform is the most appropriate for your business.

To most people, WordPress happens to be the favorite blogging platform due to its high level of search engine optimization technology, advanced themes and plugins.

How To Set Up A Successful Blog

Setting up a successful blog is the pioneer step to be taken prior to getting into business. Your blog represents your business website and can be customized to make it look professional in the sight of your target audience.

While trying to set up your business blog, follow the steps below.

  • Choose a suitable blogging platform, preferably the platform with the highest rank in search engines. While considering this, I suggest WordPress for any newbie because it helps you choose the right themes and plugins for your business blog or website. Don’t forget we said initially that your blog represents your website and can be customized to make it look professional as people don’t usually have trust in free domain blogs.
  • Choose your blog domain name. Make sure you choose a name that you would love and cherish as your own brand for a very long time and let it be concise, usually 5 – 6 words.
  • Choose your blog description and let it be as descriptive as possible. The description of your blog is part of what makes it show up in search results when people make searches in Google. The most important thing about this is that it must be related and relevant to your domain name.
  • Prepare to get indexed by Google, Yahoo, Bing and the rest of search engines. While preparing to get your site indexed, you must ensure that you make posts that are 100% relevant to your niche topic leveraging Jaaxy, the best and most advanced keyword search tool in the world.

Why do you need Jaaxy? Why must you write content using the Jaaxy keyword search tool?

Due to the fact that most keyword search tools online are not accurate and efficient and any keyword-rich content would get more chance of getting indexed, it calls for leveraging an advanced and accurate keyword search tool like Jaaxy.

This is very essential while writing content on your blog and it speeds the indexing of your content and overall website.

When I started my own blog, I followed all these instructions as given in training and got one of my posts indexed by Google the following day while the overall website was indexed on the third day of starting out.

Would you want to have your own blog indexed within 24 hours of writing your first article? If your reply is Yes, then you should be few clicks away from getting your site indexed by Google. Congratulations!

You wouldn’t be able to achieve success in any online business unless you have a realistic goal set from scratch.

Most people fail and opt out of online business quickly when they can’t work on any realistic goal. Setting a goal is one thing, having a realistic goal set is the other.

You wouldn’t set an unrealistic money goal and expect to become a successful online entrepreneur.

The money goal you initially set when you are just starting out with your blog would be your target in the course of running your online entrepreneurial business and it doesn’t fail so far you work earnestly and continue building out your site or blog with quality and engaging content.

You will be writing content, not necessarily everyday, but at constant intervals so that your publishing frequency remains 100%.

Why do people fail in blogging? Why do people give up so quickly when they are almost close to success? They simply fail in building out their blogs or websites.

The following points will help you out while trying to build your blog or website.

  • Create all necessary menus for your website such as the ‘About Me’ page, ‘Privacy Policy’ page, ‘Affiliate Disclaimer’ page as well as other necessary pages on your website. All these increase your visibility and trust score in search engines.
  • Once the necessary menus are created on your website, you can start working on content writing straight away. This is the maiden step in building out a website. Write quality and informative content on your website from time to time and encourage visitors to leave comments on your site while engaging them as much as you can. Try to do this as frequently as possible to build out trust for your website. The ranking of your website is solely based on this.
  • Enable and activate social media buttons on your site which allow users and visitors to share the content of your site with friends, fans, groups and followers on social media such as Google+, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest and others. Google trusts you more as you engage your target audience on social media and you maximize revenue potentials on your site.

Once you start building out trust in search engines, sky won’t be the limit when it comes to making money.

You will receive hundreds of real and targeted visitors to your site daily, weekly and monthly working at the comfort of your home and you will be working as a full-time internet entrepreneur.

  1. Hey Israel,

    Thank you for the detailed information on how to set up a business blog. I have been considering creating a business blog for some time already but I am held back due to the lack of knowledge about websites and codes.

    However, when reading your post, it does seem to be very easy and simple and if I understood correctly – I can make my own blog without knowing programming and coding. Well, this is really great then.

    As I am quite a busy person, what would be the optimal time to dedicate to my blog? I can’t afford to spend full-time resources to it but few hours a day I could spare – would it be enough?

    You also write that publishing frequency should remain 100% – what does it mean? 100% of what? What should I compare the frequency to, to make sure it is 100%?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Thanks for leaving a thought, Arta! Much appreciated! It’s great to know that you can set up a blog in just a few minutes without the knowledge of HTML or programming. WA makes that possible for you even without spending a dime if you prefer using the free starter membership.

      For you to get results in less than four months, you must devote not less than 8 hours a day on building out your blog with content and audience engagement. This will ensure that you get a first page ranking on time.

      You don’t have to publish new posts on a daily basis but must have a frequency in posting content. For instance, if you scheduled to post every new article twice a week, do that consistently and you will maintain a 100% publishing frequency. Thanks for visiting!

      Wish you breakthroughs,

  2. Interesting information on how to set up a Business Blog! If I was to create a blog online, How many hours a day would I have to work on this for it to be Successful?

    At the moment, I can spare 3 hours a day. Is this enough to build my business over a period of time?
    Thank you and I look forward to your reply.
    Regards, Jeff.

    1. Thanks for your contribution, Jeff! Kudos for reading my post! Setting up a blog takes some few steps and these are based on solid, proven blogging fundamentals. I have personally observed that most influential bloggers don’t even count on these anymore and it has caused a serious setback for struggling bloggers.

      The amount of success you would be willing to have in affiliate marketing is exactly the amount of effort you must put in. I am a full-time internet entrepreneur who has great passion for blogging and I teach people to do blogging and be successful.

      Three hours a day cannot work things out for your blog. When it comes to building a blog, it takes some extra effort and things would be going on fine with time.

  3. I have heard that building a blog can be a lucrative process, so it would be great to go down that route for building an online business for myself. 🙂

    In the past, I tried a number of different ways to make money online (unsuccessfully), but blogging certainly seems like the best approach in this day and age of internet marketing.

    Thanks ever so much for the guidance on getting a blog started and rolling for an income! I especially appreciate the advice on setting a money goal because it’s an important step that many newbies forget when first starting out.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Neil! Most veteran bloggers give up so quickly because they wouldn’t want to build up their online business steadily. Kudos to you for getting it right and for deciding to build your business with patience!

      As you said earlier, blogging is the order of the day when it comes to marketing online and a lot of people wouldn’t even figure this out properly. This might be due to the fact that people want to start it and have it the same day.

      Setting a money goal at the would strengthen you while building out your business and will help you cope with unexpected challenges.

  4. Great post! I have a website that I have been working on for the past few months and it has been going strong during that time!

    I see that you mentioned Wealthy Affiliate as a great place to learn about creating an internet business, and I definitely agree that WA is the perfect place to learn this stuff from!

    When I joined WA back in May of 2017, I knew nothing about building a website, but I was quite surprised how easy it was to have one up and running just by following the steps.

    My question is, how long have you been a part of WA and what advice would you give someone who is just starting out that has not made any money online?

    1. It’s great to know that you have a branded website that is up and running now, Arie and I must say kudos to you for patiently building out your site understanding all it takes to turn your passion into a thriving online business. Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to discover and develop your entrepreneurial skills and you can always get full and interactive support from other members and from the founders.

      Following the steps in the online entrepreneur certification is all it takes to master content, sales and SEO strategies. Skipping a step or two can be disastrous and could be responsible for costly mistakes for a long period of time.

      I have been a member of the Wealthy Affiliate community for quite some months now and have found this community a great money making platform and a solid ground to become a successful internet entrepreneur. For newbies, it would be great to receive training and get acquainted with money making tips before getting started. This will help you avoid the common mistakes that most bloggers make.

    1. Hello Andrew,

      It’s great to welcome you on board and to appreciate you having spoken a word of encouragement regarding the great mission of raising the giants among business entrepreneurs. We have a lot of fantastic and practical SEO tips and realistic online marketing strategies to publish in the coming days, weeks and months. Just stay tuned and watch out for our future posts while we are preparing to publish more and more informative and helpful articles for you.

  5. Great article on setting up a business blog! How long have you been blogging? I recently started blogging about fitness and am seeing good results in a short time on WordPress. I would agree with you that WordPress is the best place to start a blog.

    I also recommend Wealthy Affiliate because you can start out free and see the amazing value in becoming a premium member!

    1. I have been blogging for the past ten years, but didn’t figure things out not until I came across Wealthy Affiliate. When I joined this community, I saw blogging in a different way totally and began to understand those tips to becoming a successful internet entrepreneur.

      I didn’t understand how to use the WordPress blogging platform ever before I joined the Wealthy Affiliate network which prevented me from making any meaningful progress with my blog. Kudos to the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate for creating what has been a truly wonderful entrepreneurial training platform for affiliate marketers!

  6. Thank you so much for this guide! I have a website set up and I do blogging too, but wish I had found your website earlier. It would have been easier for me to look at the whole picture step-by-step. Now that I have read your post, I know what the next steps are in my blogging journey. Thanks a lot!

    1. Setting up a business blog is as simple as it’s explained in the post you’ve just read, though you have some simple tasks to perform on your own part to finish the process. Since you are already into blogging and you have a business website too that you run at the comfort of your home, try and leverage those useful tips you read in the post to speed up the ranking of your site and to maximize your earning potential.

      Has your site been indexed by Google? This is the most essential part for you to ensure that your site gets ranked in no time. If your site has not yet been indexed, then it won’t get ranked at all.

  7. Hi Israel,

    I really enjoyed your post on how to set up a business blog. I could see that you’ve been educating yourself and have some great knowledge to share in this arena. I am a bit behind the curve from you and have joined Wealthy Affiliate in the last 5 months. So far, I have found it to be a very positive experience. I love how you’ve laid out a step by step process for building an online business blog.

    What have you found to be something you wish you would have done earlier? I haven’t set up an email list yet and have been reading that this is quite powerful.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mat A.

    1. I have been into blogging for some years now and have learned a lot about setting up a business blog even long before I joined the Wealthy Affiliate community, though the exposure and adequate training I got from Wealthy Affiliate has remolded me completely to be who I am today in the online business world. I found the community to be a positive experience too and have always enjoyed the full and interactive support I have always got from time to time.

      I would have set up my domain specific email earlier and would also have leveraged the various platforms in the community. Try and set up your email in as much as you know that you have unlimited email accounts and can get tons of traffic from email marketing too.

      If you ever need further questions about setting up a business blog and getting traffic from email marketing, don’t hesitate getting back to me by filling out the comment form below and I will be more than happy to reply you as soon as possible.
