TIPS TO SETTING UP YOUR EMPOWER NETWORK BLOG!

New to Empower Network, just getting started with blogging and struggling to work out the "rest" of it.   

People will read your blogs – that's a given, simply because of the Power of the Empower Network.   It ranks high on Alexia especially if you are writing interesting, content filled, value posts.  BUT… 

if they don't know who you are – they may not leave a comment, like your writing or worse the may not complete their details to JOIN You. 

That's why i've done up this quick video on how to add your Profile Picture and Change the Header and background to your Empower Network blog – so that you have a unique individual blog… all about you.

Ive also added a video on how to customize some front pages also – so that people can find out more about you and as a bonus Ive added a video on using keywords in your blog posts.  Hope you find them useful. 

If you do, please leave a comment and share the post with others… 

HOW TO ADD YOUR PROFILE PICTURE TO YOUR EMPOWER NETWORK BLOG

 

Log into your Empower Network back office and click on My Business.    Select Profile..   

Enter your details in here – and scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see it says 

Update Information. 

Click the upload button and select the profile picture you would like to have appear next to your posts.

The picture needs to be 260 x 278 pixels, – it does not show up if it is any larger or smaller..    If you need to resize your picture, go to http.www.resizr.com  and upload your picture and resize it there.   I have included a video explaining how to do that at the bottom of the page, should you need this.

HOW TO ADD MORE PAGES ABOUT YOU TO YOUR EMPOWER NETWORK BLOG. 

extraAnother useful tip – would be to add some Extra PAGES about you and your team bonues.  How to contact you and perhaps what mentoring you offer.  Check out my page HERE to see what I mean about other pages… the link takes you to my mentoring page.  

I have added a Work With Merna, My Team Bonuses, Contact me and Mentoring pages to my site, just to provide more information about me and why you should join my Empower Network Genius Team

In the meantime.  Log into your Empower Network blogging platform.  

Change from Easy Mode to the more advanced mode (don't panic – its easy too.. )  

Click on PAGES, Add New – and start blogging away about you.  🙂

Once completed and saved then go to the Appearance Tap  Click Menus.  You will see a list of all your pags on the left hand side.  Tick the box corresponding to the name of your page,   Click Add to menu.

Your page will then appear in the box on the right hand side.  You can now drag and drop the page into the order you want it to appear across the top of your blog.   Make sense?   Watch the video below for some more details.

HOW TO USE KEYWORDS TO WRITE A BLOG POST 

Keywords are how Google searches your blog to see if it is relevant to what people are searching for.   The Google Keyword Tool is a useful resource to find out what kind of phrases and keywords people are using to look up your topic.  Its a great way to use exactly the words people are searching for so your post shows up on the first page of a Google Search.  It takes a bit to master getting your page ranked on the first page – and there is a bit more to it than keywords – you need backlinks and to be established for a while.. but it is worth using the tool right from day one of blogging so you get into the habit of it.

Heres a video show how to Resize your pictures for use on your blog. 

In the beginning I speak about creating advertising banners and a program called Adbrite to use to advertise your banners.  Thats just one way to advertise your Empower Network blog to get traffic to it.   However – hold out til Minute 1.52 and I explain how to resize your pictures using http://www.resizr.com        Also at the end of the video – I explain a free tracking tool that basically keeps count of how much traffic (or clicks) you are getting on your page.   Then you know what's working and whats not.
