The Quest for Building Awareness
Business-oriented blogging eventually makes it important to gain recognition among followers, target audience, and similar bloggers within the industry or field of specialization. But reaching this level is no less than an obstacle for new bloggers, mainly because it requires time, patience, hard work, and determination. This means that you should set out on your blogging journey with a clear mindset about the efforts you will have to make to become widely recognized after a period of time.
The Opt-In Obstacle
Building strong relationships with the target audience is an imperative objective for every new blogger. But the means of getting there include building a list of solicited subscriptions for an email database. This is a challenge because new blogs lack reputation and trust due to which the target audience is mostly reluctant in filling out the opt-in form. But there is really no two ways about it.

You must consistently give your target audience the content that holds value to them so as to build their trust in the near future.

This means that you must continue to create and share high quality content on your blog which contains highly searched keywords in adequate density.
