MUST HAVE PAGES FOR YOUR BLOG – STEP 11

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO STARTING A BLOG

Finally, you got to this exciting step where you are going to build your first blog pages!

They are a few important web pages that every blog should have.
It is important to properly plan the structure of the site and to decide which categories will appear on the main menu. Your readers should navigate easily through the blog pages and increase your blog page views. Here are five must-have blog pages and a few important tips to follow:

MUST-HAVE WEBSITE PAGE NO.1 – HOMEPAGE

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Therefore, your homepage is undoubtedly one of the most important web pages on your blog. Although it is usually not the webpage that drives the most traffic to your blog, it is still the storefront of your blog, and it needs to navigate your visitors to find what they are looking for quickly and easily.

MUST-HAVE WEBSITE PAGE NO.2 – ABOUT PAGE

The About Page is a page that contains the story about you and the information about your blog or your business. This is the page to present your personal story that will bring you closer to the readers, share the idea behind the establishment of the blog, tell about the vision of the blog, and the purpose for which it was founded.

MUST-HAVE WEBSITE PAGE NO.3 – DISCLOSURE, PRIVACY POLICY & TERMS OF USE

These pages are important from both a legal and ethical standpoint. In fact, these pages need to contain the site’s “dry rules” and different policies.
If your blog collects any user information, such as names and email addresses, or uses cookies to track user behavior with a program like Google Analytics, then you need to write a Privacy Policy to your blog.
If your blog provides any free or paid services to your readers, then you definitely should protect yourself from a legal standpoint and add a Terms of Use Page to your blog.
And if your blog provides information to your audience that relies on your expertise and advice, you must inform them whenever there might be a conflict of interest by adding a disclosure page. For example: if you use affiliate links, run contextual ads, or receive any kind of compensation for including anything on your blog.

MUST-HAVE WEBSITE PAGE NO.4 – SUBSCRIPTION LANDING PAGE

A subscription landing page is a page where your blog visitors can sign in to your newsletter by entering their contact details, such as Name, Email, Phone number, etc.

Each time you receive a new blog subscriber, you actually receive validation that this subscriber has identified your content as adding valuable content. This way, you can build relationships with your audience and send blog updates on a regular basis. The newsletter subscribers database is a marketing asset that will help you promote your blog with almost no costs.

First, before creating a subscription page you must create an Email Account. It can be a Gmail account or a dedicated hosted Email. This email will be used to manage your subscriber’s database and be in contact with them.

Which email marketing service should you use?

A good email marketing service enables you to create highly engaging emails. There are plenty of email marketing software providers. Some of them offer you a free version under 1000-2000 subscribers, so you can try different services and choose the best one for you. Among the most popular and the largest email marketing services you can find Constant Contact, MailerLite, MailChimp, Drip, ConvertKit, AWeber, GetResponse, ActiveCampaign, and more.

MUST-HAVE WEBSITE PAGE NO.5 – CONTACT PAGE

A contact page is a webpage that allows visitors to contact you. You can add to this page an email, a phone number, links to your social profiles, a contact form, etc.

Once your blog is ready, publish at least 10 articles, and move forward towards the most important part of this guide – promoting your blog online to drive high traffic and earn money.
