Day 4: How To Create Content For Your Store (a healthy guide)

Greeting witches and wizards. If you followed me until now, I guess that you have found your topic to blog about, you created your first blog (Diagon Alley Store) and you have started your owlery.

If not, please follow the Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 steps, in order to be in the same train to Hogwarts.

In this blog post I will show you some guidelines on how to create content for your incoming readers.

Remember: In life there are NO SECRETS. So stay out of trouble by avoiding Death Eaters that are claiming so.

Here are the requirements you must meet, in order to keep your audience happy, when they arrive at your store:

#1 Write your own words or thougts (this is crucial)

No matter what you do, do not become a copycat of other people's articles or other media type of content.

Make sure that what you write, is written by you, no matter how silly your article might be, be you in it. Your readers will love your uniqueness and genuinity and they will be glad to find out that they can relate with a real person.

You can add photos and videos from others, but make sure that what you WRITE comes from YOU. 

Easy, right?

#2 Stay consistent on your topic

 Bring the fresh into your store, on a dialy or weekly basis, that depends on you. If you feel to write longer blog posts, then you can write at least twice a week, but if you are like me and you like short posts, then a dialy routine, is in order.

Your readers will love you and thank you for your time and effort you put in your work.

#3 Don't get dissapointed

When you first get started, you won't see reactions, comments or any type of feedback from the beginning. That is because you are new and people don't know how great you are. You will prove them on the long run.

#4 Don't quit

That is what many of us do. We start enthusiastic, excited and consistent for a FEW DAYS. Then we start to slack off day after day by procrastinating, ending up with a big QUIT.

Make sure that you create something every now and then, no matter how small it is. It's your passion though, so stay on track.

#5 Help your readers understand you

React to the feedback that you are getting from your readers. Answer to their comments and questions. Ask them what they like about you and what they don't like. Keep in touch with them via yout owls.

And that's it my magical friends. Make sure that you like, share and comment on my content.

In the next post I will show you "How to start your affiliate program for your store" so stay tuned and I hear from you soon.

Day 3: How To Setup Your Own Owlery (a healthy guide)

Greetings witches and wizards. If you followed up until now, I guess that you read the Day 1 and Day 2 steps so far, if not, return to your last step and read it

Remember that in life, there are NO SECRETS, so I suggest you stay away from Death Eaters that are looking to steal your galleons (no joke).

Now, in this blog post I will talk about setting up your own owlery, so you can spread the word of your craft.

If you are a proud owner of a store on Diagon Alley like me, then you need that your owls to fly and talk about your offerings.

What I mean is that you need all the social media support that you can get. So let's begin with the top 3 owls you MUST own, shall we?

1. Facebook (first owl)

A facebook page is the first asset a wizard or a witch MUST HAVE. Why? Well, because most of your visitors will come from Facebook. You can post there, links, photos, videos and events that your fans will share all over the place.

The objective is to get as many likes as you can. This is mine, started on 5th August 2016. I got only 13 likes, but there will be more :)

This guide will help you start your own page. Tell me in the comments below, your progress. I'm thrilled and curious to know.

2. Twitter (second owl)

The second owl that you need, is a twitter account. You can share there, tweets with your followers, about your craft. You can also follow me :) Learn how to create one clicking here.

3. Google+ (third owl)

When you get started with a Google account, you automatically get a Google+ profile too. Start joining communities and groups once you are there.

And that's all of them. Start with one at the time and keep me posted with your progress. I really want to help you get further and for that I need your feedback.

I will talk about "How to create content for your store" in the next post. Until then, please comment, share and like this post.

Thank you for your time

Day 2: Creating Your Store On Diagon Alley (a healthy guide)

Greeting, witches and wizards. Have you found a topic to talk about yet? If not, go to Day 1 find one, then come back and read this blog post.

Tip: Do one step at the time, to avoid getting overwhelmed.

Now, I will talk about how to create your first blog, the place where you will share your knowledge with others and recommend products.

Before I begin, remember that in life there are NO SECRETS. So stay out of trouble by avoiding Death Eaters that are claiming so.

There are two ways to start your first online store: 

1. For Free

2. Paid (you need to invest some galleons)

Let me start with the first point. There are two big platforms, where you can self-hosted store:

2. Wordpress 

I recommend, starting with Blogger, because it's owned by Google, and there are many chances to get visitors faster than with Wordpress and they are more tolerable with Terms and Conditions.

A tutorial on how to start with Blogger, can be found in the video below. Make sure you watch it and implement the steps.

The only disadvantage with the free version of blog, is that you don't have total control over it and they might be closing your blog if you post inappropriate content.

Don't get discuraged though, make sure you read the Terms and Conditions and everything will be fine.

Now, let's continue with the second point.

The paid way

For this to work, you need a domain name, and a web host. I recommend Wordpress for this type of choice.

Why? Simply because Wordpress has a function called plugins which gives you the control to manage it the way you want to.

You need to LINK your domain name with the web host, in order for this to work.

For domain names go to GoDaddy and for web hosting go to HostGator. Make sure you watch the video below for instructions on how to link them together:

Choose your way, Free or Paid and focus only on one of them. Tommorow I will talk about "How To Setup Your Owlery"
