Have you read anything about how long should a blog post be? I read a lot of blogs about blogging and I see posts on this topic all the time. The answers run a very wide range, from a few hundred words to a few thousand words. Of course, everyone you read says that they have the definitive answer. But since they are all so different, how do you know which guru is right?
Is there a definitive answer? How long should a blog post be?
I was talking to someone recently about helping them create a website for their business. We ran into some difficulty when we started talking about the search engines - how your website shows up on Google. I made an incorrect assumption that everyone understands what the search engines do, but not everyone does. How do search engines work?
One of the things I do in my business is help people create their own website. Ideally they are people who join my network marketing team, but sometimes they are existing distributors from other teams. I'll help anyone who wants to put in the work because we all win if we play together.
If you are involved in a home-based business these days, you need to have a website to support your business. If you are going to have a website, you should know how to build a website.
Many people will tell you that you should hire someone to build your website for you. I do not recommend that course of action. You need to know how to build your own website. Here's why:
- You will have to install updates and do other maintenance from time to time. It could get expensive if you have to pay someone every time.
- You will have more confidence as you work with you website because you will know what went into it.
- When you have built one, you will have more confidence hiring one done in the future. You will better know that you have received what you paid for.
