Building People's Trust with a Blog

Looking back on one of my post Surfing with a Purpose, people have different reasons why they are online. Majority of them are consumers/buyers and job seekers or business opportunity seekers. Some have been victims of bogus Internet Marketers who want to earn easy money online. 


Years back, I belong to the list of consumers buying goods online and have been a victim of undelivered purchased items.  I am not the only one who have experienced the same.  It is wise to find the reliable information before buying.


Blogs are tools being used by Internet Marketers to promote the products they are selling or services online.  Some Internet Marketers erroneously relied on catalogs, never bought a piece of the product they are selling online, can't even provide reliable information, true evaluation how effective and efficient the products  if they even haven't tested the same.


Be a wise customer, to find the reliable source of information before buying. It is a matter of searching through the Search Engine Sites like GoogleBingYahooAbout and more.  You can easily compare pricing from various reliable web stores.  


A blog can be a tool to building people trust.  Before creating a blog, think of topics that you best know. You are the expert and have the authority over what you know best. Some people would like to learn from others knowledge and expertise. 


A blog is also a tool for sharing and place for learning. If you are blogging on what you have experienced, some people like to know how you have done solving problems with what you have experienced and learned from you. They probably are experiencing the same as you now.


Your blog can be in an informative format. Help your readers find the reliable source of information in their research or answers to their homework like wikiwikipeidaehow, and more. 


Some people might think that monetized blogs were written by publishers who want to earn from blogging. There are people who got personal reasons in writing blogs. Some would like to build personal confidence, develop discipline and proficiency.


Know the true purpose of blogging.  You need to make a research on what most people want, how they can earn, save more and provide them where to find the reliable source of information to address their need.

To build people's trust with blogging, you should be able to deliver the reliable and accurate information to them at the best time they need them.  You need to update your blog regularly to gain web presence.

As blog publishers, let's consider time as more worth as gold.  No matter how much money we have, we can’t buy back time and it is a shame to waste others time for our personal interest. 

Make sure that the contents of your blog are within the Webmaster Guidelines.  Hope to see your blog online.

Built Wealth from Your Thoughts Through Words

Have you noticed these questions in your social media account: "What's on your mind?" or "What's new with you?"


Have you asked yourself why?


Think deeper...


Everything we see online are the crafts of the human mind.  It all started from a thought which is invisible and became visible as a product when people express what's on their mind.    


By expressing human thoughts through words, anyone who is human can able to identify and classify all things in nature. God has given human to invent and even create words.   When you communicate your thoughts and ideas with words, they become your property.   When you use words, the more potent they are.  Words do not wear out and do last forever. 


A person with headful of words is more worth better than having a pocketful of money.  Money is usually spend or lost. While words when learned or acquired can be used over and over again.


Some people use words to help them get the results they want; even earn money and built wealth from expressing their thoughts through words. Writers, publishers and authors were able to create blogs, articles, journals and e-books expressing what they thought.  Internet marketers usually use the social media as their promotional site sharing their blogs, articles, journal links, e-books and earn money to build wealth, getting more famous, followers, hits and likes.

  • Why are you writing?
  • For whom are you writing to and what do you want them to understand?
  • How do you say your message that makes readers understand better?

Answer these questions will help you determine the structure and style. An example of this is writing a blog.  Will you blog be in a narrative type (narrating your experiences to your readers), informative type (informing your readers new developments or polices), descriptive type (describing the items you are promoting in order to make a sale).  Knowing your purpose in writing, will enable you to determine the tone of output and able to determine your audience. Never use high sounding and technical words that only the engineers would understand.  Most likely, not all readers are engineers and not the same level of intellect as you are.  Make it clear that everyone can understand.
