Are you an authority?
A question I get often in results of the amount of reviews in many formats I have shared in the past.
Are you authentic?
After writing about how I feel towards “advertising only” blogs here, I think it’s time to ask the next question:
How can you become a reliable authority blogger?
Well, the answer is very simple: You build your reputation online by time. But it’s hard work:
Research, read, get involved in forums and groups, comment on other blogs with your opinions, join social networking sites and socialize with people around the globe, go to trade shows or join webinars, join twitter and stumble upon (but don’t spam others with unwanted junk!), visit digg or mixx and learn as much as you can before writing on any subject.
Do videos or audio and post them along your blog posts, then ofcourse write, write and write more.
I know it takes time, but before you know it, you will have 100’s of readers to your blog, 100’s of youtube subscribers and maybe 1000’s of Twitter followers!
These I call my “quality and loyal” readers or subscribers that I would share any knowledge with them (like my free online training program on www.WAHOL.com) and will always love to interact with them on a personal level 🙂
And before you know it, you become an authority. Thanks to all the research, hard work and long reading hours, people will stop by you for reliable information. And to me, that means a lot.
Other wise, what’s the benifit of being a blogger?! Right?
