Original Story in the Form of A Blog - How To Market?

Hello everyone!

I happen to have this unique talent of making fictional stories that are relatable to a certain audience. I was thinking maybe of making it into a blog style, developing the story with each blog post.

The thing is, if the story is 100% original, what could be the possible keywords for that?

Admittedly, I have yet to purchase AB and learn all the basics, but anyone have any ideas to share? :) thank you!

The keywords would depend on what the story is about.

In my experience the best way to sell stuff online is to solve a problem that someone has. If you're going to write a fiction story, you might want to weave a storyline into about how one of the characters managed to overcome some sort of problem or challenge.

I'm not sure if that would put you shady territory with the FTC though... Just make it extremely obvious that it is a fiction story. Maybe write about Elves who learn to play guitar with Jamorama or something :)

Or elves that could lead Googlebots to index your pages faster :)

I agree with cterao. Crisis / Problem keywords are good keywords and convert well to sales. You could also use "how to" keywords. :)

Your customers posted positive comments on the Affilorama Services forum. Great job, Stephanie! Keep it up. I'm sure your blog would be great! ;)

I would suggest keywords that deal with the genre you are writing. Also, use Google Adwords to search keywords that will generate enough traffic to get you going but will give you a way to compete with what is already on the market.

Hello cterao, michellerana, and valcine, thank you so much for your replies I truly appreciate it. :) Well, I have already started one that's sort of like a fun and light read romance. I posted only 8 blog posts and it has generated quite a good response with my readers :) These were only posted on Facebook though. haven't continued coz I want to try and make it really work as a blog so I'm figuring how to go about it.. :)

Since the target audience is mostly young women, do you think I can affiliate with sellers for fashion, accessories, or something like that? :) and maybe have the character wear the apparel I'm selling in the story so it can mesh with the products for sale.. hmm. :) what do you think?

That 's a novel idea (pardon the pun!) and it could work, depending on how you execute it. I've seen personal blogs, or personal-looking blogs, that gives out "recommendations" on what's the perfect shoes for summer or what gift to give for special days.
