I decided to share some blogging advice this morning because I’ve been seeing some depressed bloggers complaining about how frustrating blogging is.
It’s been months since I’ve been trying to share this advice but I’m a busy person. However, nothing feels good than seeing all of us win in this blogging industry, and that’s why I’m sharing this little advice this morning to fellow bloggers, especially beginners. I’m a novice too o. I do not know anything o.
Okay, let’s go!
There’s a high chance your blog is going to survive if you begin as a startup, not an ordinary blog site. Blogging is a lucrative business model and should be treated like one from the beginning.
I heard many people saying they’re blogging for passion. My brother/sister, passion wouldn’t take you far if you don’t earn money.
Blogging should be both money and passion-driven.
? Quest for in-depth knowledge of blogging before you start. You can’t invest in a business without knowing its nitty-gritty.
? As I always tell people, you need a team. You can’t do it alone. Look for like minds like you. Draw marketing strategy, financial strategy, and managerial plan. This is a real business, man. People are generating $150K per month off blogging.
? You’re going to spend money if you want to make real money in this blogging business. It’s an investment and you need to invest. Though you can be using some free tools and plans as a beginner.
? Listen up, you don’t choose a niche because you love it, choose it because people are searching for its contents and it’s monetizable.
Make research on your niche CPC before you choose it. If you choose a non-monetizable niche because you love it. You’re on your own.
According to one entrepreneur, he says: “I decide on what to sell only AFTER I have seen a market that wants to buy.
Rather than create a product and look for customers, I discover customers
(market) and then create a product or service for that market” is that clear?
? Master SEO very well. Link building/Guest blogging is quite important. Build massive email lists and social media pages. Submit your site to many directories. You need SEO in-depth knowledge to win this blogging race.
? Emphatically, don’t seek Adsense alone.
Irrespective of your niche, there are many products on Amazon that relate to your site you can sell. Create a separate store page to sell the products using the Woozone plugin for easy product addition.
I like using Adsense, Amazon affiliates, affiliate links, and paid advertisements.
? Importantly, make friends with other bloggers. No one is an island of knowledge. Build a mutual relationship with them. Having conversations with people with the same dreams and aspirations will make you achieve them quickly.
