Do’s & Don’t of Business Blogging – From Ivesp.com

So I found a brilliant post on blogging for business. It includes a whopping 152 tips. I am posting the the 1st 15 here but I encourage you to read all of the by clicking here.

  1. Do host your blog on your own domain
  2. Don’t spend hundreds of dollars hosting your blog when you are first starting out.
  3. Do make sure your blog can handle traffic from social media sites
  4. Don’t go for too cheap/free hosting plans. You do not have to spend a fortune since you can get a decent host for less than $20 a month.
  5. Do brainstorm 30-40 topics for your blog before you start
  6. Do have 10 posts written and posted before you launch the blog
  7. Don’t create filler posts to have 10 posts for launch
  8. Do invest money to get a professional blog template
  9. Don’t think that you have to spend a fortune creating a professional looking blog. A professionally designed template can cost as little as $400
  10. Do comment on other blogs in your field before starting out
  11. Don’t spam other blogs just to get your name out there
  12. Do define success metric for your blog before you start blogging
  13. Don’t set unreasonable success goals that are too difficult or too easy to achieve
  14. Do understand why you are blogging
  15. Don’t think that blogging will solve your business problems

  1. Great advice! I’m just beginning a website for my youth group, and we are going to buy a template for $1,000 and going to pay $20 a month for hosting. In all, I think that it’s pretty inexpensive to have a professional looking website. I really liked #6 “Do have 10 posts written and posted before you launch the blog”. It’s definitely important to have content before launching!
