Setting Up a Blog

Setting Up a Blog

There are several important steps involved when setting up a blog. First you have to sign up with a web hosting service.

The higher end ones mean that you normally have to join a site and pay a membership fee. Some of you out there might have that sort of cash for those sites, but I don’t.

Article Marketing: 3 Ways to Inspire Customer Confidence Through Your Articles

Usually with article marketing the main attractions are the amazing SEO benefits–article marketing is a great way to drive traffic to a website by increasing your search engine ranking. But one often overlooked perk is the ability to build credibility and trust with your potential customers through your articles. Why would you want to build trust and inspire confidence in your customers?

That’s an easy one–the more belief that a customer has that what you tell them is true and that you’ll not let them down once they purchase your product, the more likely you are to make the sale.
