People want to follow people who have valuable information to share when it comes to starting and growing a home business. Once you start to get repeat readers to your blog, you get what you call social proof , meaning you would be to go to guy or girl as far as home business education.

Once you get traffic, you must have a marketing funnel. A marketing funnel is a system you can set up to help you grab leads, build relationships with them, and at the same time market your opportunities to them. It funnels out the not so serious people, keeping the ones that who are looking for what you have to offer.
In order to make use of your marketing funnel, you must have a capture page on your blog in order to generate leads. Blogging is a great way to capture leads since they already love your material and want to learn more.
The best way to learn is to teach. There are a lot of great ideas, tips and strategies out there that you’ll learn and want to share with your audience. Once they see how much knowledge you have, the strong your social proof is.

Not only will you build a loyal readership, but also you’ll build a sense of community. Especially if you join blogging communities where everyone support and leverage each other. This helps you in the long run to get your content out there even more! And as a result, it makes it easier for you to generate traffic, leads, and sales.
