job-interview-shake-hands-18611489You probably already know this but it’s good to remind you again. In online businesses, it’s always better to partner with somebody.  But before you do this, make sure that both parties have the following components in place before you ask someone to partner with you or before you agree to partner with someone else:

1. A blog – so you can trade blog posts.

2. An email newsletter – so you can promote your blog posts here as well as your products and services.

3. Products – this means online products that people can buy online.

4. A free download – when you partner with someone, you get to promote their free download so you better have one too which they can promote as well.

5. An affiliate program – this has to be easy to join to and must be supported by good customer service.

Why Does No One Read My Blog?

girl-read-book-20530917If you have noticed that no one is visiting your blog, it might be the right time to ask yourself why. And this is where I can help you. I’ll share with you below the top three reasons why people don’t read your blog and perhaps you can do something about it starting now.

1. It’s all about you. – Just like in presentations, it should always be about the audience. In this case, when blogging, you should keep in mind what your readers need and want. If it’s just going to be about you, you might as well just write on your diary instead.

2. It’s not useful. – This is related to the first one above. If you are not answering questions and needs that your readers may have, then you’ll be all alone benefiting from your blog posts.

3. It’s too “buttoned-up”. – This is where your personality will come in. By adding a touch of your personality, then you can gain the trust of your readers and followers.
