Are You Ready To Blog? Answer These 5 Questions Before You Get Started

Before you begin to blog, you must know your target audience and as much about them.  As a blogger, these are the 5 most critical questions you need to ask before you write your first post.

1.  Who is your target market?  Gather this information:

  • Age
  • Education level
  • Gender
  • Do they own or rent?
  • Hobbies
  • What is keeping them awake at night?

2.  What is your target market searching for online?

If no one in your target market is searching for your topic, chances are pretty good they won’t find you.   If you don’t know what your target market is searching for online, the best way to find out is to ask them.

3.  What does your target market most want to achieve in life, business, family, community or politics?

Everyone has a goal, and as a blogger, it is your job to find out what your target market really wants out of life.

4. As a blogger, are you going to be a reporter or an original writer?

Many bloggers simply report news.  Many write original posts.  I recommend doing a bit of both, yet writing original content is what the public is searching for online.

5.  What is the most current trend circling around your target market?

The attention span of the public is short, so do your best to take advantage of a current trend that is important to your target market.
