I enjoy networking with successful people in any profession. I believe success rubs success. Successful people give off a positive entrepreneual energy that is contagious.
So when John Chow sent out an invite to join the Dot Com Pho in Toronto, I did not want to miss the chance. It is rare that you get a chance to spend quality time with someone who is a wealth creator and one of the top bloggers making close to USD $40,000 a month from blogging telling people how to make money blogging. Amazing .
How many of you had a chance to meet Bill Gates or had a chance to dine with Warren Buffet ? It just does not happen.
I was interested to learn a few blogging tips and to get a business mindset from John. John was very open to share lots of information about his blog, affiliate marketing and recent blog events.
I just had one question for John, How do I make my blog as successful as Johnchow.com
John shared with me some of his blog secrets that made him successful. I share the same with you.
- Change your thinking : To become successful you need to change your thought process. Change your thinking from an employee to a business owner. We all get stuck with the 9 to 5 employee mentality which does not help while running a business. This is one of the most critical aspects of being an entrepreneur. “Change your thinking, change your bank balance”.
- Create a community : Focus on create unique content that will help your readers comming on your blog. Focus on creating communities with your users. Creating communities will increase readership and loyalty in the log run. Interact with your users at every level. An example of this is John Chow’s Dot Com Pho where his readers are invited to share ideas and interact.
- Go viral : Looks for online and offline ways to go viral. The traffic that comes from going viral will take your blog to another level. Use the power of social media like Digg, Twitter, Technorati to leverage the viral effect.
- Build a network : Build a network of other bloggers and interact with people all the time. Larger your network better the support for your initiatives from fellow bloggers and your network.
I thanked John for giving me entrepreneurial insights from his heart, I hope I can practise these to help me be a better blogger and a great entrepreneur.
