Do This One Thing If You Want to Write a Successful Blog

You know that feeling when you write a blog post you think is brilliant, but when you hit publish, all you hear is crickets? Most bloggers, freelancers, and entrepreneurs with business blogs have struggled at one point or another to get an audience to show up and engage. So what’s going wrong? Most people with this all-I-hear-is-crickets problem make one simple but fatal mistake: They focus on their solution rather than on their audience’s problem. The one thing you must do to write a successful blog is obsess over your audience, not yourself! When you can put the focus on your audience and write content that addresses their pain points, desires, fears, wants, needs, and problems, you’ll create content that’s compelling and attracts readership. Get to know your audience. You first need to define your ideal blog reader, which means answering some questions that will help you put together a comprehensive description of your target customer. Try to go into detail and write down the main characteristics of your persona, such as: Age Job Favorite social channels Hobbies Favorite TV show Location Gender Marital status You can use your imagination and your empathy to answer these questions. But you should also leverage available technology to dig into some highly accurate specific details on your audience. Alexa is one tool you can use to get quick demographic reports on the audiences of any website, if you know the kind of blogs that already attract the audience you want to get in front of. SimilarWeb will also give you data on web traffic for any site to help round out your research on the demographics of your audience. And, of course, you can also get the answers straight from the horses’ mouths. Do modern market research for your blog. That’s right: The best way to know your audience – and what kind of content would actually get them to show up and read your blog – is to simply ask them. Now, that can be easier said than done for a few reasons: People may not respond to you if you ask…

Peter Diamandis’s 9 Rules For Building A Successful Business

Dr. Peter Diamandis (@PeterDiamandis) has been named one of “The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders” by Fortune magazine. In the field of innovation, Diamandis is Chairman and CEO of the XPRIZE Foundation, best known for its $10 million Ansari XPRIZE for private spaceflight. Today the XPRIZE leads the world in designing and operating large-scale global competitions to solve market failures. Peter has been a guest on the podcast twice (once with Tony Robbins, and again solo), and in this guest post, he shares information he’s never discussed before. Specifically, Diamandis looks back at his XPRIZE experience and the strategic decisions that allowed the foundation to become a success.

Enter Peter The XPRIZE – which launched the private spaceflight industry – was an “overnight success” after 10 years of hard work. During those 10 years, I recorded a number of “go-to” lessons that I learned and used over and over to help me succeed. In all, I came up with a list of 28 of those lessons, and they became known as “Peter’s Laws.” But 9 of them are my favorite, and in this post, I’ll outline them and detail the key takeaways. If you want to learn about all of the lessons, they are highlighted in the book, How To Make A Spaceship, written by Julian Guthrie, with a foreword by Richard Branson and an afterword by Steven Hawking. One thing is clear from my XPRIZE story: attitude is the ball game. Mindset matters. It’s everything. It might be cliché, but whether you think you can or you can’t—well, you’re right. Your mindset is more important than anything.  It’s even more important than technology or income. I hope that these will clarify your vision and be useful to you. Rule #1: When given a choice…take both! Society teaches us that when you’re given a choice, you have to choose one. Why? Why do you have to choose? But you should be asking, “Why choose?” All throughout graduate school, I was told, “Go to school…
