4 Key Systems That Will Keep Your Blog Running Smoothly

Once you decide to start treating your blog a like a business, you realize there’s a lot more that goes into it besides just writing and posting. Because of everything you have to keep track of, it’s important to stay organized. Great blogs and businesses can fail if they lack an organized system. Today, I’m sharing four key systems you should have in place in order to keep your blog running smoothly and growing effectively.

1. Analytics system

Your website system involves tracking analytics, making sure it’s responsive (looks good on mobile devices) and has decent SEO optimization.

Tracking your web analytics allows you to see how many page visits you have, the amount of time people stay on your site, where they came from and much more.  You can track your analytics by creating a free Google Analytics account. They’ll provide you with a code that you can plug into the “GA Google Analytics” plugin for WordPress.

Knowing where your visitors come from shows you where you audience hangs out and will give you insight into which platforms you should put more time into. For example, if I know that people on LinkedIn hardly ever click over to the posts I share, I can decide whether or not posting on there is worth my time.

Pro tip: Try not to overly obsess over your analytics. Track your stats in an excel file 2x a month.

2. Content system

Creating valuable content for your readers is extremely important.  Not only does it help your community and set you apart as a trusted resource, but it will also make it easier to sell products on your blog. If your audience trusts you, they’ll be more likely to purchase your products.

Your content system involves creating a game plan to provide content regularly. This could mean that you create an editorial calendar, which helps you plan your posts in advance. What type of content will you give out? How often will you give it out? Creating great content is a good way to build your readership and email list.

Pro Tip: Create content that is relevant to your niche. Be exceptionally useful and plan ahead.

3. Email System

Your email system involves sending out a newsletter regularly and tracking links and conversation rates.

Your email list is very sacred, and you should take good care of your subscribers. These are your VIP readers. Treat them as such by making sure they have first dibs on all of your amazing content. Keep in mind that if you ever decide to sell an e-book or e-course, your email list will more than likely be first in line. Give them the special attention they deserve.

Tracking your email open rates will give you an idea of whether or not your subject line is enticing enough. Because the average person gets many, many emails per day, it’s important that your email stands out as being very useful before it’s ever even opened.

Pro tip: Invite people to join your newsletter with an attractive subscription form. Also, avoid using forms that simply say, “Subscribe to My Newsletter!” You’re likely to get more subscribers if you offer them a freebie during sign-up.

4. Social Media System

You social media system involves connecting with your audience on a more personal level and creating a sense of community. It should be used to bring more awareness to your blog, email list, and eventually your customer base. It’s also just a great place to interact with your community. Use hashtags that a potential reader may be interested in. You could even create a hashtag of your own!

Pro tip: Figure out where your audience hangs out so that you can facilitate your community interactions.

Running your blog as a business can be a lot of work, but creating systems helps you to streamline your process.

How can you use these tips to create a more stream-lined, well-oiled blog?
