5 Easy Ways To Discover Hot Niches

5-Easy-Ways-To-Discover-Hot-Niche

The Internet is full of blogs and websites that started out well, but over time just fizzled out. In many cases, it’s because the business owner didn’t take the time required to research their intended niche carefully to determine whether it was a paying one.

They didn’t do the research on who their ideal customer would be, or determine who their main competitors would be before they jumped in completely.

These days, anyone can start an online business with just an idea, a few dollars, and a website. However, not many will be able to stay in business unless they have discovered a profitable niche that has a large-paying market that will cover their expenses and time each month.

There is nothing worse than wasting your time and effort chasing a niche market that looks promising but proves to be unprofitable.

The following five steps will help you to discover whether the niche you want to work in is a paying one before you even try to register what seems like a great new domain name or launch a blog.

If you’ve been thinking about starting a new online business but have yet to do your research on the market, use the following action steps to ensure that you know your niche thoroughly, so you can avoid wasting your time and money on trying to start an online business in an unprofitable niche.

Step One: Identify Your Passions and Interests

If you haven’t already identified your interests and what you are passionate about, this is where you will want to start. Being in business for yourself is anything but easy, and at some point, you are going to be tested.

If you own a business that you don’t care about, chances that you’ll quit when the going gets tough increases substantially. This is especially true if you are a first-time business owner.

This doesn’t mean that you need to find the perfect fit. You just need to be passionate about some aspect of running the business.

Having even, a single aspect of the business that you are passionate about will increase the odds that you’ll stick with it, even when you face challenges. If you don’t care about the topic, you may not be able to sustain your motivation that is needed to persevere.

The first step you need to take is to write down ten areas that you are passionate about or that you have a topical interest in. If you are having trouble doing this, here are a few prompts to help you figure it out.

  • What do you like to do in your free time? What activities do you look forward to participating in when you’re not doing it?
  • What kinds of magazines do you subscribe to? Are there any topics that you like to learn about?
  • What clubs and organizations do you participate in?

Step Two: Identify Problems You Can Solve

Once you’ve identified ten things that you are passionate about, you can start narrowing down your options. If you want to create a profitable business, you need to find problems that your target audience is experiencing, and then take the time to determine whether you can solve them.

If you aren’t sure how to figure this part of the process out, here are several things that you can do to help you identify problems in specific niches.

  • Work with members of your target audience to get their input. Have one-on-one conversations with members of your target audience and ask specific questions that will help you to uncover specific pain points.
  • Look at online forums. Get online and look for forums that are related to the niches that you are considering. Search through the discussions that are taking place. Try to determine common questions that members are asking and trying to find out what problems they are having.
  • Conduct keyword research. Use the Google Trends and Google AdWords tools to explore a variety of different keyword combinations. Doing this can help you identify specific search terms that are related to pain points that your target audience may be experiencing.

Step Three: Research Your Competition

Having competition isn’t always a bad thing. If you find that the niche you are looking at has some competition, it may mean that you’ve found a niche that will be profitable.

However, you need to thoroughly analyze the competing sites to see if there is a place in the niche for another business. To start with, you’ll want to create a new spreadsheet and log all of the competing websites that you can find.

Next, you’ll want to analyze each site to figure out if there is still an opportunity for you to stand out from the rest of the crowd and build a profitable business. You need to determine whether or not you can still rank on Google with the keywords you’ve chosen.

Figure out if there is still a way that you can differentiate yourself from the rest of the crowd and create a unique offer. Here are several different ways that you can enter a niche market and still find success even if there are already a number of sites that are serving the market.

  • You can easily outrank your competition if their sites contain low-quality content. If other business owners aren’t creating high-quality content that serves the target audience, you still have a chance to build a successful business in that niche.
  • Many sites have a lack of transparency. Many new business owners have been able to completely disrupt entire industries by creating a transparent and authentic presence in a market where other sites are considered faceless and overly corporate.
  • If you’ve discovered a keyword that has a relatively high volume of searches, but little paid advertising or competition, there is an opportunity for a new business owner to upset the market. The lack of paid competition can create tremendous opportunities.

Step Four: Determine the Profitability of Your Niche

By now, you should have a good idea about which niche you would like to get into. While you may not have completely narrowed down your list to a single topic, you’ve likely found a couple of ideas that you feel pretty good about.

Now, you will need to try and get an idea of how much you can potentially make in the niche. A great place to start your search is Clickbank. Clickbank is a market platform for vendors to sell their digital products. It is the largest affiliate-marketing network for digital products like software, eBooks, and membership sites.

You can use the site to browse the top products in your category. If you are unable to find any offers in a particular niche, it isn’t a good sign. It could be a sign that no one has been able to monetize the niche. You want to find categories that turn up a decent number of products, but not an overabundance of products.

During your research, make notes of price points, so you can know how you need to price your own products in order to stay competitive.

You’ll also want to keep in mind that you don’t necessarily have to have a product offering of your own to start your business.

You can partner with a product’s creator, advertisers, and site owners in your niche to start making commissions by selling their products while you work on your own unique solution.

Step Five: Test Your Idea

Now that you are armed with the information you need to choose a niche, the only thing left for you to do is test your idea.

One easy way to do this is to create a landing page for the pre-sales of the product you are developing. Then you can use different advertising and marketing methods to drive traffic to your landing page.

If you don’t get enough pre-sales, do become discouraged. You may still be in a viable niche, but either your message isn’t quite right, or you haven’t found the right offer.

You should begin to leverage A/B split testing, so you can optimize your conversions and determine whether or not there is anything stopping your target audience from taking action and buying your products.

Final words

Once you’ve determined that the niche you’ve chosen and the product your offering is viable, you’ll want to begin to develop a fully functioning website. You’ll want to include a blog on the site, so you can begin to generate more traffic and boost your revenue.

You’ll want to keep in mind that there isn’t necessarily a perfect process for finding the perfect niche. You’ll need to do your homework and continue to move forward.

If you find yourself stuck in the planning phase, you’ll never get around to starting and won’t find yourself on the path to success. As an entrepreneur, simply having a great idea isn’t enough, you have to learn how to become a good starter if you want to be successful.

 

What You Need To Do In Order To Actually Make Money Online

Most people who try to make money online fail, there are many reasons for that one of them is that they fail to do the few things. That is why today I am going to share with you what you need to do in order to actually make money online.

What You Need To Do In Order To Actually Make Money Online

Pick one niche

The first step of making money online is choosing your niche. You need which market are you going to serve as an online entrepreneur, some of the most profitable niches include weight loss, personal growth and how to make money.

Learn more about your niche

After picking a niche you will need to do a little research about it, you need to find out who are the top influencers in your niche, find out best youtube channels on your niche, social media influencers, big bloggers, etc, with a simple google search you can find all the information you need.

The main aim of this is to find out which type of content in your niche gets more engagements ie likes, shares, and comments.

Start producing content

So now you have an idea on what kind of content the audience in your niche like to consume go on and create similar content.

Just pick which medium you can use to share your content, in this case, it can be a blog for written content, a podcast for a spoken content or youtube for video content.

Build your following

So now you have a marketing channel, you need to encourage people to follow you in your social media accounts and subscribe to your email list.

You can use an incentive by giving something of great value for free so that they can join your email list and follow you on social media.

Find a mentor

After having some success, it is time to find a real mentor, yes you can purchase a product from someone but that does not make them your mentor. You need someone that can actually have a private coaching section with you.

I don’t recommend to do this when you don’t have any kind of the result, this is because, in order to get a serious mentor, you need to show that you are serious in this business too and the results are the only when to do that.

Seek feedback

In order to go in the right direction, you will need to seek feedback from anywhere you can it. People who consume your content is a good place to start, find out which kind of content bring more traffic, social media shares, and interaction and create more of it.

If you have a mentor, also you can ask feedback from them, if you don’t have a mentor join a facebook group of like-minded people and seek feedback from them.

Act and change

This is the most important factor, in order to succeed in this business or in anything in life you will need to take action and adjust according to the feedback you get from your prospects, fellow marketers and mentors, adapt yourself and your content accordingly.

Get over disappointment

This is a real-world, you will get disappointed, you can trust me on this. You will get mean comments, you send emails and no one opens them, no one consumes your content, no sales, you invest in a product and they underdeliver, you make a commission and they don’t pay you, things can get bad very quickly in this business.

Any of those can happen to you and sometimes they can happen at the same time, you need to learn how to learn to let them go and keep moving on.

Final words

Those are things that you need to do in order to actually make money online if you’re new or not yet to make your first sale online you can check out this video as you will get the exact steps you will need to do in order to start making money online.

Respect

Most of the successful online entrepreneurs I know they have respect, they have respect to themselves, other marketers and most important to their customers and prospects, if do you have the ambition to be successful in this business you need to learn how to respect yourself and others.

Self-discipline

This is one of the reasons why many people fail online or in life, they lack the self-discipline, most successful people follow a schedule, they meet their deadlines, they stick to a task until it is complete and they make the most important tasks first.

Ability to prioritize tasks

Successful online entrepreneurs have ability to identify the most important tasks in their businesses and prioritize those, this is one of the skills you need to learn if you want to be successful.

Dedication and commitment to problem resolution

You need to learn or improve your communication skills like writing and speaking, this is because in order to run an online business you will need to be good at both.

Willingness to share knowledge

Knowing something won’t make you rich, you need to be able to share the information and knowledge you have with your prospects and other entrepreneurs, yes you can charge for it but you need to share it.

Humble attitude

They say your attitude is your altitude, and it is true, you need to be humble, for me, a small amount of arrogance is needed in order to succeed in anything in life, but you need to be able to control it, people tend not to buy or associate with very arrogant people.

Ability to learn

In order to succeed in anything in life you need to be teachable, you need to be able to learn from your own experiences, other people’s experience and your mentor (if you have one).

Ability to think logically

When your business starts to grow you will have to make a lot of decisions, but before making those decisions you will need to be able to think logically because one decision can make or break your business.

Each stage of your business have different challenge, a person who is making #100 per day has a very different challenge from a person who is not yet to make the first sale, most of the successful entrepreneur has this ability to apply the knowledge they have acquired in the past in a new situation.

Interest in technology

Why Am I Not Making Money Online? How to Build Trust with Readers

So you started your online business, you build a website and you´re not making any money and you don´t know why, in this blog post, I am going to answer the questions on your mind: “Why am I not making money online” and “Why isn’t my website converting?”

Why Am I Not Making Money Online? How to Build Trust with Readers

You don´t have a plan

If you are not making money online, probably is because you don’t have idea how online works, like anything in life you need to have a goal you want to reach and have an action plan to reach that goal, you need to know each step you need to take in order to reach where you want to be.

How to fix this.

You need a plan, I am sure now you know that, but how you can create a plan if you don´t have any idea how this business is done? You find someone who has done what do you want to achieve and model what they are doing.

There is a program called One Funnel Away  Challenge, they laid a foundation and a road map that can help anyone who is new to this online business to succeed with 30 days. It is an action-packed step by step training, I will recommend it as your starting point.

You don’t have a mentor

This point is related to the first one, you will need a mentor, a person who had success on what you want to achieve so that they can give you their blueprint and you can model it, someone, you can ask questions when you are stuck.

How to fix it

I will recommend again to give a try the One Funnel Away challenge, in this challenge not only that you will get a plan on how to succeed but also you will get Russel and his team teaching you every single day how to grow your online business.

You’re not building your list

If you have been trying to make money online for more than a day, I am sure that someone already told you ´the money is in the list´. You need to start collecting emails from people who are interested in your services and products and start building a relationship with them.

How to fix this.

If you’re new and you don’t know where to start I will recommend downloading the free freedom funnel that will give you the foundation on how to build your online business, you can download it here.

Build a relationship with your list

They say ‘the money is in the list’ yes, it is true but it is not the whole truth, the money is in the relationship with your list.

You need to stop treating your list as a cash cow, you need to treat them as people who have problems and need your help to solve them, send them useful information that can help them and in long run they will trust you and buy products and services you recommend.

How to fix this

Start sending emails to your list, giving them value and be helpful.

You’re not giving value

Online marketing is about giving people value, give people who follow you good tips and advice that can help them.

In order to give value you don’t have to be an expert, just be resourceful, sometimes when I get a question about something only thing I do is just to google it and give people the answer they seek, you need to be adding value to your prospects.

How to fix this.

Learn more about your niche, the more you learn the more helpful and valuable you will become.

You’re not taking action

Most people just never take action, let say you have a mentor, a plan and a funnel, but if you don’t take action you will never build your list you will never build a relationship with your list and you will never make money online, it is that simple.

How to fix this.

It is simple to take action, do things that your mentor recommended to do, each and every day do something that will help your business to grow.

Final words

Those are the reasons why you are not making money online, so when you have questions like “Why am I not making money online” or “Why isn’t my website converting?”, come back here and read this article again. Also, I explained how to build trust with readers (prospects).

I hope they helped you somehow, thank you for reading my post. If you have any questions let me know and I will do my best to help you out.

In daily life people have problems with their weight, they want to make more money, they want to start a business, they want to feel better, they want to find love, they want to learn a new language, etc.

This is a business and as a business owner you need to be able to solve your customer’s problems, depending on the group of people do you want to serve you can find a product that solves their problem and present it to them.

For example, people who want to start an online business you could give them tips on how to start their business and offer them tools like page builders, autoresponder, hosting services and you will get paid in the process.

You could offer some diet tips and recommend people who want to lose weight some diet plans and exercise routines.

You could recommend business owner tools that can scale their business like Clickfunnels and automation tools like ConvertKit.

Find a medium to deliver your message

A key to online business is giving a ton of valuable tips and content to your prospects, you need to decide which medium you are going to use in order to do that.

That could be a Facebook group, Instagram account, YouTube Channel, Pinterest or blog. These platforms need to be accessed by people who may need your product or service.

7 Things That Successful Online Marketers Have in Common

There are different approaches make money online, most of these approaches will vary based on individual business goals and personality, but there are some things that all successful online marketers have in common. They all do all these 7 things.

7 Things That Successful Online Marketers Have in Common

1 They have a marketing channel

The marketing channel is a way to deliver your message to your audience, this can be a blog, an email list, a YouTube channel, social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc), in one or more of these channels you will find them with a big amount of people who follow them and consume their content, if you want to be successful, you need to start building your following online.

As a tip, don´t build all channels at the same time, build one and when you get success then you can add a new channel.

2 They have website/Funnel

All top marketers I know they have at least one place where they can send their followers to subscribe or buy their stuffs, it does not matter if you have a huge YouTube Channel or Instagram followers, you need to have a page or series of pages where you can send your prospects to get free content or buy something from you.

For building pages most of big marketers use Clickfunnels.

3 They build their email list

If you have been marketing online for more than a day, I am sure that someone has told you that the money is on the list, you need to collect emails address from people who like your content.

You can use the power on email marketing to recommend more products to your list and make more money in the process.

4 They email their list

In the last point, I said that the money is in the list, this is not 100% true, the truth is money is in the relationship that you have with your list.

People they buy products from people they love and trust, in order to get the trust from people who are in your list, you will need to start sending them tips and information that can help them to solve their problems and with time they will trust you and they will buy products you recommend.

Tip: Don’t recommend products just for the sake of making money, recommend only products that are of high quality.

Tip: To build your list and use the power of email marketing in your online business I will recommend Aweber for people who are just starting out and ConvertKit for bloggers or people with more experience.

5 They add value to the marketplace

As I said in the last point, you need to add value to the marketplace, in other words you need to teach or tell people who are following you something valuable to them, this could be tips, entertainment, encouragement, anything that they find useful.

6 They promote high ticket products

All successful marketers I know and follow they promote high ticket products, it does not matter if it is their own products or affiliate products, you need to promote products that can make you at least $500+ per sale.

This is one of the best-kept secrets on online marketing, imagine that you want to make $10000 per month, which one is easier, to sell $10 product to 1000 people or to sell $1000 product to 10 people, I know I prefer the first option.

Another thing to note is that it takes almost the same amount of effort to sell a $1000 product and to sell a $10 product.

7 They promote low ticket products

I know I just said they promote high ticket products but one thing I found in successful online marketers is that they also promote low ticket offers, they only difference between them and unsuccessful marketers is that this is not their main focus, they use them to drag people to their funnels and sell them high tickets offer as backend.

That is it, those are 7 things that successful online marketers have in common, how many of them are you applying on your business? Let me know in the comment section below.

Thank you for reading.

5 Steps for Discovering Your Ideal Customer

One of the most essential elements of running a successful online business is developing a detailed profile of the ideal customer.

Finding and serving a perfect customer when you first start your business will save you months of wandering in the dark, looking for a paying market. The following five steps will put you on the right path for discovering your target customer.

5 Steps for Discovering Your Ideal Customer

Start with the Smallest Market Possible

You have to locate a group of customers that believe what you have to offer is unique. When you are first getting started, you will have very few resources to work with to get your name out there.

Your key to initial success is to find a very narrow group and create raving fans out of them. Once you start to gain traction in your market, you can expand your reach.

Create an Initial Value Hypothesis

To continue to move forward, you have to stay in test and refine mode. That is why you must create a “why us” value proposition and use that as your hypothesis. Too many people get caught up in trying to execute their business plan when the market doesn’t care. The only thing that matters is what you discover and apply outside your office.

Gain Perspective in Discovery Test Sessions

The key to making and affirming your initial assumptions is to set-up discovery test sessions with your prospects. You can join industry or trade groups or offer free samples to those who are willing to provide you feedback. It is vital that you start talking to prospects about what they need, what they think, what works and what doesn’t. This is how you evolve your business.

Create an Ideal Customer Sketch

Some of the information that you need to create your ideal customer sketch will be commonly understood, like demographics, but much of the data will be discovered in your test sessions and additional research. Now is the time to identify and define everything you can about your ideal target group.

Strategy Model Components

Now you need to apply this new ideal customer sketch to other elements of your business strategy. Consider how it might impact your offerings, your revenue streams, your pricing, and your distribution channels. You will also need to consider how you can reach this particular market and what resources you’ll need to have an impact on the market.

Understanding your ideal customer will allow you to develop the right products and the right price. Knowing what your customers need and want can help you build a successful business.

Three steps to make full time income online

Making a full-time income online is a dream for most of us who start an online business, but most people who try and start an online business fail to make a dime and they end up quitting.

In this post, I am going to give you three steps you must pass through on your way to making a full-time income online.

Step 1: Change your mindset and beliefs

Most people who start an online business have been working for someone for a large part of their life since they were little, they were told that you must study hard, get good grades, get a job and you will get paid.

Always there was someone to tell you what to do, and if you don’t do it they will punish you in some way, when you decide to become online entrepreneur, there is no one to tell you what to do, there is no one to punish you if you don’t do it, hence most people they will do nothing and make no money.

Also you need to change the instant gratification mindset, you do something, in few days you get paid, you have a check at the end of 2 weeks or 4 weeks, in business world it does not work like this, you might do something today and you have no idea if it will work or no, and you don’t know when you will get paid, this is a problem for many people.

Also, you need to have a belief that you can make money online, you need to believe that you’re good enough, if you don’t believe that you can make a full-time income online, probably you won’t, remember if you believe you can or you can´t you´re right.

In order to change all these, you will need to start reading self-help books, entrepreneurship books and other books related to your industry, if you can’t afford books or you´re not a book guy or girl you can watch YouTube video on those subjects and you gradually start to change your mindset.

Also, you can write some affirmation and read them the first thing in the morning and at night before going to bed, again this will help you to change the way of thinking and start attraction wealth.

>>>> Alexander has one of a great resource on how to attract the wealth you can check out here.

Three steps to make full time income online

Step 2: Start with free traffic

Getting traffic is an art and it should be mastered, most people will recommend you start will many traffic sources or paid traffic sources, but for me, you should always start with free traffic.

Before throwing your money on paid traffic you need to know few things about online business, if you start with nothing like I did, you don’t have enough money to buy traffic, you don’t know your niche yet, I would say until you make your first $1000, stick to the free traffic.

There are a lot ways to get traffic to the affiliate offer and squeeze pages, blogging, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Quora, document sharing sites etc, with time I will be posting all these free traffic methods here on my blog, make sure you visit frequently so that you won’t miss them.

Step 3: Invest in paid traffic

I like free traffic, but sometimes it is very difficult to scale, once you start making regular sales with free traffic, you should invest some of the cash on the paid traffic, this will do your online business a wonder and will make a lot of money very quickly.

A word of warning though, until you have at least $500 that you are able to lose without losing your sleep don’t invest in paid traffic, this is what I mean, paid traffic is a high risk, high reward investment, if you’re new there is a chance that you will lose money at first, if you´re taking money that you’re supposed to buy food for your kid in order to invest in paid traffic you’re risking yourself going into a trouble, it is better to spend extra 2 hours on free traffic than risking it, but if that money won’t affect your budget, I will encourage you to take that leap and invest some cash into paid traffic.

So that is it, those are three steps to make a full-time income online, if you’re just starting out or you need any help regarding starting and growing your online business, let me know and I will be glad to help out.

Thank you for reading, peace, and love

Who is Information Marketer?

Today I got a question who is an Information Marketer

This was my answer.

An information marketer is that guy or girl who markets information.  We distribute information.  We relay information.

We operate on the Internet (The Information Super Highway!).  We are marketers who distribute information to those who WANT that information (niche).

Where is the information found?  Everywhere!  It’s free all over the place too!  So, why sell it?  You sell it because people buy it, that’s why.  You find a place where people are buying all sorts of stuff and you just get in the way of all that money being spent.

You can collect a ton of free articles online about a specific topic.  I copied them, pasted them into a PDF and sell it online.

People will buy it because you did the hard work of finding the information packaging and organizing it, people will pay a  good amount of money for organized information.

Think about this, why do we go to school and pay a lot of money for it? The answer is simple we pay for the organized information, you could buy those books and teach yourself anything but still we go to school, it is the same with online information business.

As an information marketer, you should know that you have access to tons of information.  It’s all over the place.  You can simply research a topic, master it, and sell it!

Just make sure it’s a topic where tons of people are already buying.  Sell what they are already buying.  Sell what they are buying right now.  Find out what people are buying… and go sell that to them.

If do you want to learn how to sell information online there a no better place than from the guys who own the largest information product retail on the world, I mean Clickbank.

What it takes to succeed in online business

So you started an online business and you want to succeed but you don’t know how in this post I am going to share with you what it takes to succeed in the online business.

What it takes to succeed in an online business

Extreme focus

I still have this problem, when I start my computer and start working and the distractions start, first my family think that because I am working from home they can come in at any point and disturb me.

On my part, I try to work around waking up early while everyone is sleeping and start doing my things, also you can set your working hours in time when your partner or kids are not home, but for me, you need at least 4 hours to really focus on your business.

Another cause of distraction is that because I am working by using a computer with an internet connection, it is easy to open a browser and start navigating, this can take hours from your business.

If I don’t need to do a research I will turn off the internet and work without it, also I like to have a background instrumental music in YouTube, this helps me a lot to focus.

Eliminate FOMO

One of the reasons why most people don’t succeed in an online business is that they have what is called Shine Object Syndrome, this is a symptom of a disease called FOMO.

FOMO is a Fear of Missing Out, you know, every day there is a new system, a new product, a new traffic method and most of the online entrepreneur end up buying all this products and systems because they have a Fear of Missing Out this new phenomenon.

You need to find one traffic method, one product, and one mentor and focus on them, forget everything else, trust me you’re not missing anything.

Stop following anyone with a new shiny object

This is big, as I said above, one of the most dangerous diseases that will kill your business is the disease called shiny object syndrome.

In order to cure yourself from this disease, you need to stop following anyone with a new shiny object, you know there are marketers who they will send you an email each day promoting to you a new shiny thing, unsubscribe from them.

Also, there are marketers who create a new product after one or two weeks, most of the time what they do is rehash the same training, change it a name and give it a hyped headline and sell it again to the masses, you need to move away from those types of marketers.

Get clarity and your life and business will change

I am not a motivational speaker or guru, but I will tell you this if you don’t know what do you want you will never get it.

Imagine a plane leaving a field without its final destination, the most it can do is to take off, have some run on the air and one of the two things will appear, either it will go back to the original point, or it runs out of fuel, crash and burn.

This is what makes most of the online entrepreneurs fail to succeed, you need to think about what do you want to achieve in your life and business, you need to have a clarity of what do you want and your life will change for good.

Commit to what you’re doing for one year

After having the clarity of what do you want in your life and business you need to make a commitment of doing that this for at least one year.

This is a problem, most online marketers will join a program today, they will promote for one week they won’t make any money and they will quit and join another calling the previous one a scam, this cycle will continue for years.

To break the cycle, you need to pick one thing do you want to do, let say do you want to learn how to drive free traffic to your affiliate offers, you can choose to start a blog, a YouTube channel or a podcast.

What most people will do is to start a blog for a month and if they don’t get any traffic, they will move to grow a YouTube channel, then move to a podcast, at the end of the day you will not know how to blog, run a YouTube channel or run a podcast.

All you need to do is pick one thing you need to do and do it for a year, if you write one blog post per day, in one year you will have 365 articles on your blog and for sure you will be getting some traffic, this applies to YouTube and podcast as well.
