Over the long 4th of July weekend, I not only enjoyed the much needed rest and time with friends and family but was also able to write multiple posts for future publishing. Even though I’m extremely excited about publishing them, I’ll hold off until the majority of direct messages I received from Twitter over the weekend are answered via this post.
Apparently the three day weekend gave chiropractors enough time to think about the value of blogging. I received more direct messages through Twitter than I ever have over one weekend. And, considering the 96th Tour de France kicked off on July 4th, the neat thing was that the messages revolved around my blog and blogging instead of one of my other passions, cycling.
The overwhelming majority of direct messages asked if I knew of a quick way to get a chiropractic blog started. Without me actually doing the work for you, which by the way is the purpose of Developing Others, I decided to write a post that lists previous blog posts that will walk you through the process quickly.
So, without further ado, here’s a busy chiropractor’s guide to starting a chiropractic blog:
1. How to Know What the Buyer Wants
2. How to Distribute Your Content
3. How to Setup a Blog for Your Chiropractic Practice
4. How to Register a Domain Name for Your Chiropractic Practice
5. Finding a Home for Your Chiropractic Blog
6. How to Automate the Subscription Process of Your Chiropractic Blog
7. How to Build a Better Chiropractic Blog in 31 Days
Okay, I realize that the aforementioned guide takes time to read and digest. Nevertheless, no good effort is ever wasted. If you want to see results, you have to lay the proper foundation. There’s no secret formula to success. It’s just like building a successful chiropractic practice. You take it one day and one patient at a time.
However, if you truly want to start your blog ASAP, please contact me. I can get you up and running typically within two weeks.
One caveat — you must have content to post before we take your blog live. So, if you don’t have content, you’ll delay the process.
A good rule of thumb is to have four posts already published before you announce your blog. Then, after the announcement, post every day for at least the first two weeks. Once you get a rhythm, you can test to see what works best for you and your readers.
Most successful bloggers blog between 2 to 5 posts per week. Some will post on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays but others like Tim Ferriss prefer to post on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. It really comes down to your decision. If you keep a good pulse on your blog’s stats, you’ll have a better picture of when and how frequently you should post.
If you need any more pointers, as always, I’m here to help in any way I can.
