Tired of the Same Basic Hacks, Tricks, or Tactics?

Let’s be real.

Writing articles is the easy part. Marketing is the hard part.

And the sad truth?

Beginner bloggers often focus on the wrong things.

Pro bloggers don’t use hope as a strategy. They use clear frameworks.

“When will I be able to build a proper audience for my blog?”

“How come it’s so hard to get people to comment on my article?”

“I always feel like I’m sharing my words with a void. There’s gotta be a better way to think through this!”

The problem with the hacks, tricks, and tactics you find on just about every blogging blog out there is that you only ever get a bit of direction. But they don’t show you the way.

It’s like being told, “Go there.”

Well, let me share with you what really changed everything for me.

The 4 C’s of Ridiculously Irresistible Articles

Everything you write, from a tweet to a 10,000-word essay, needs to pass the 4 Cs:

Is it clear?

Is it concise?

Is it compelling?

Is it credible?

As far as unconventional content creation formulas go, the 4C’s acts more like a series of content creation principles, but it does provide one with a basic framework for writing articles that genuinely benefit the reader, especially since your article has to be “credible.”

And I believe this is the keyword for this formula: trust.

The 7 Deadly Sins Formula

A big part of what makes a blockbuster article stand out from the crowd is the fact that it elicits a powerful emotional reaction.

Not only that, but it seems as if the author is in tune with the reader’s emotions, understands their fears, challenges, and objections.

One sure-fire way to better understand the emotional undertone of your article is to use the 7 Deadly Sins Formula.

Isaac Newton’s Three Laws of Blogging

What’s the best way to write a blog post when you kind of run out of ideas?

Connect a couple of seemingly unrelated dots.

No, seriously. It’s such a fun way to write an article.

I do it from time to time, when I either don’t feel like working on certain topics, or blogging starts to feel a bit too much like work.

Find a way to connect two seemingly unrelated dots.

What ties them all together? What are the principles that govern them both? How can one idea from a field relate to another idea in an entirely different field?

Well, I answered those questions and came up with Newton’s three rules of blogging. Based on his three laws of motion.

Most Blogs Fail. Why?

At least once a year someone out there publishes a long article announcing the imminent demise of the blog. More bloggers than ever are giving up, content saturation is alienating a lot of readers, and the rise in popularity of different mediums will be the final nail in the coffin.

The truth?

It’s always been like this.

Out of all the bloggers I’ve networked with when I launched my first blog in 2012, only a dozen or so still publish regularly.

Out of all the bloggers that I’ve personally coached, only a dozen or so still publish regularly.

And out of all the people who decide to start a blog this year, only a small percentage of them will still publish new content regularly by the end of the year.

But why?

Blogs Don’t Make Money

A couple of weeks ago, as I was working on The Art of Blogpreneurship, I asked the following question on our private community:

I was a bit shocked, to say the least. But it’s a trend I’ve been noticing, especially among novice and intermediate bloggers.

Bloggers complaining that they can’t sell products, that no one wants to join their premium memberships, that no one actually clicks on their affiliate links.

But why is that?

Well, let’s try to understand the current blogging ecosystem and why it’s so difficult to earn an income blogging.
