A great way to get your business blog to bring in paying results is to concentrate on its design. A primary purpose of the design of your blog is to make it easy for readers to find information. The second, and equally important purpose, is to lead readers to those links where they can take action. It may be downloading a free report or signing up for a new 4-week class on social networking.

Think about what you look for when you open a new blog. There are certain elements that are going to influence whether a visitor stays on the blog and reads the information or leaves the post. It only takes a few sentences for the visitor to make that decision and it is usually based on the look and the feel of the blog. No matter how important your information, visitors are not going to read anything unless the look of the blog impresses them enough as being worthwhile and targeted to them.
