My little one, who I’ve been home with since her birth started pre-school this week. The tears have stopped (my tears, she was fine), but I do miss having my little buddy with me all day. Now that she’s away, I’m getting the question: What are you going to do? It’s known that I’m an Influencer, but not a lot of people really understand what that means. I get it, it’s a fairly new profession.
Blogging is just a fraction of what I do, but here is a checklist that I use to help me keep my posting in check. Fellow Influencers/Bloggers, please share this and use it yourselves. Fans and supporters, I hope this blogging checklist sheds a little light on what we Influencers do.
How to Write a Successful Blog Post – What Influencers Do
1.) Brainstorm a blog post idea.
2.) Gather information by researching your chosen topic, visiting the place you’ll be discussing, or testing the product you’ll be reviewing.
3.) Gather relevant photos to accompany your post or snap some pics yourself.
3a.) If capturing your own photographs, edit them.
4.) Outline your blog post or choose a template from a previous post to use.
5.) Write! Complete a rough draft of your post.
6.) Edit your blog post and read it over 2-3 times to catch any existing typos.
7.) Add in photographs and relevant links.
8.) Pick the optimum time to publish your post and schedule it.
9.) Once your post has gone live, share it across your social media channels.
10.) Engage with your audience and interact with commenters across all social media channels.
12.) Don’t forget about your post, share it again a few months later or even a year later. If it needs updating, edit it. Utilize your content as much as possible!

And companies think Influencers should do all of this for free . . . I had to say it! ðŸ˜‰ #sorrynotsorry
