    How long after you started blogging when you began to see consistent retweets, comments? thanks!

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      It was about 6 months

      • http://www.guotime.com/ grant

        Definitely lots of hard work:)

    Yes persistent content creation is key.

  • Kumarjit Sarkar

    I have couple of questions for you…
    Apart from active sharing, updating, posting and blogging in the popular social media platforms what other ways are there to convert visitors to customers for a business.
    and secondly,

    Does having your own domain helps in reputation management as a blogger.

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      You need to engage them with great content first and continue to build trust. Then persist until you can turn that trust into purchasing with landing pages that convert.
      Having your own domain name is vital because it gives you control and flexibility of your online assets.

    You say you saw consistent retweets in about 6 months after you started blogging. Would that still be workable?

      Not one blog is the same. It depends on how well you are growing your social networks and promoting your content on them and also the quality of the content

    Thanks Kaushiki. Glad to hear you are enjoying it.

    Jeff, we would like to invite you to a beta group for ifSimply.com which is a free platform o host your own membership clubs (and thus convert readers to customers). It requires no technical knowledge and is easier than using WordPress or sending and email. It’s sole purpose is to Get Members for you to pay for access to your “premium” content ( ie how to videos, recorded webinars in-depth blog posts, and group discussion).

    Sorry to disagree: this is not de democratisation of the expertise. It is the trivialization of the expertise. Self-promotion and acknowledgement by lay people does not create experts: create false gurus. Just like Just Bieber/Jonas Brohters and so on are a fake singers, despite all the buzz they created. Expertise It is measured by hard work and knowledge, not by RT. Peer revision is the way that expertise – in the real sense- is attributed. Don´t be confused with popularity. To monetize on this is almost a fraud. And if digital influence means this, it is a very poor influence: as you know, our dear Bieber was once considered by Klout the most influential person on the Internet.

      Carlos, I think if you exchange the word ‘expert’ for the words ‘person of influence’ (or thought leader) it makes sense. I don’t think Jeff is trying to trivialise expertise or confuse popularity with ‘talent’ but encourage us to extract what we do know and, well share. The very process of democracy will sort out the popular but vacuous, from the popular and thoughtful.

    Hello Jeff,

    I really value your content and I try to read it daily. You have really impacted the way that I approach blogging. My favorite bloggers reside in Australia haha. I needed this as a reminder of what it takes to be an exert. Working towards the third tip now.

    Thank You!

  • Jonathan Henley

    OK Jeff – I’m on it…kind of a late starter but (natch) keen to monetise my knowledge. Not holding my breath, mind ;-(

    Agree that a blog is extremely useful — if not crucial — to becoming seen as an expert. But quite often the niches people blog in are extremely crowded. So claiming that status is a helluva challenge. That’s why giving your blog a local angle can be a really good tactic.

    It’s often not that hard to rank for many geo-specific searches. So becoming the online “go to guy” in your city for opinions on your chosen subject can be achieved much faster than attaining that status globally.


    Continue to market effective and your right about it is time to let the market place discover us.
