Let me guess...
You read the headline on this post and thought, "Cool! That's a LOT of tools." Then a little voice in your head whispered something like, "Wait, I wonder if they're any good? I mean, I've seen other blogs, but they had some crappy tools. I really need some help with my marketing. But what tools are specific to me - especially at my stage of development?"
Believe me, I get it. I've been there and back again.
But that is the key, isn't it? Time. Having time to set up, play with and truly put to work all the amazing tools that will rocket your blog into the heavens.
And having time to write. And time to set up your blog. And time to follow other bloggers. And time to network on social media.
After your blog is set up, after that technical part is over, every blogger is fundamentally the same. You're full of excitement and plans. You have a bright, shiny new blog, bursting with potential and ideas.
And zero readers.
Time then becomes the key factor that separates new bloggers into three dramatically different kinds of bloggers. That’s why all the standard advice about the tools you need is confusing. Tools don’t make the blogger. Time does.
Because it’s how much time you can spend studying the top bloggers in your niche, improving your writing and cultivating relationships with readers and influencers that determines how fast your blog will grow. And how fast your blog grows determines the tools you need.
Tools are essential, but time is the magic elixir.
Again, bloggers span a wide spectrum, but fall into three distinct groups. Read the following descriptions, and then jump to each group’s tool section to discover what you need.
