Pizza and Pasta in Panama?
During a 5 month trip to Panama I seemed a bit confused about the proliferation of Italian restaurants all around the country. Even rural areas boasted an Italian restaurant within a respectable distance. Most I visited were owned by Italians who had moved to Panama. Why? Panama worked out a visa program with Italy, making Panama an easy to visit location for Italian expats desiring warm, tropical weather.
Anyway, one Italian restaurant we visited a handful of times in El Valle de Anton offered sensational food, a peaceful setting, friendly staff and a certain ambiance appealing to regular customers. The successful Italian restaurant owner put people first. Naturally, he reaped steady profits because he focused on offering customers an authentic Italian experience, but in the crater of an extinct volcano in a cloud forest. Based on eating there 5 times, I never got the feeling he ran a restaurant mainly to make money. Paying great attention to detail to create a genuine, pleasing customer experienced brought the profits he enjoyed.
Follow his lead. Think about your readers first and foremost. Solve their problems. Listen to their needs. Monetize through channels beneficial to readers. Develop a deeper sense of compassion. Be empathetic. Open your ears and eyes. Pay close attention to people who publish comments on your blog. Get into the mind of your readers.
Solving reader problems sets the table for a prospering blogging campaign. Gain reader trust by helping your community. Trust seems gained over an extended period of time. No blogger holds the secret to earning trust overnight. Good things require time, service and patience.
Money comes if you serve your readers. Gaining their trust influences readers to:
Trust is the real profit-boosting factor. Earn trust by putting readers first.
Success takes care of itself if you take care of your readers.
