You must be a blogger who wants you make a living out of blogging or you might be crazy in love with the idea of blogging and being in this blogging field but you might not be a famous blogger or successful blogger it is because of some mistakes that you make and I have already made and recognized So I will share the most common mistakes that you will make being a blogger .
MISTAKES THAT YOU CAN MAKE AS A BLOGGER
This is a really important thing that you should do BRANDING because there are so many blogs out there already and more bloggers are coming and they will come and I will surely help everyone who comes into this field so how can you be different from them ? Branding is the way you can stand out from other blogs . When someone hears the name of your blog they should be able to say the blogger . Branding is important because this is what will help your blog to grow more fastly .
Building your audience
Did you know that 90% of the people who comes to your blog may never come back and Do you know why ?
Tell me a reason why someone would visit your blog there are a million blogs just like yours So why would they come
- Is there gain for them
- will they get something except your blog post praising you
- Will your content help them to grow
- Are you a Trustworthy person
There are lots of inspirational people out there but that doesn’t help your readers when you can’t teach them to be an inspiration . Time for inspiration is over its time to help people to grow by teaching them how to grow because people know blogging and internet marketing can make lots of money and get them a better life but people who teach them how to do this is very few . This is the easiest way to build your audience by helping them to get better things but not just by blogging on how to do that but by collecting their emails and sending them things via email because when you give them a quality content you should get something valuable and your audience is your asset .
Search engine optimization
This is one of the most important things that most of the blogger either doesn’t know or neither put their effort to learn and work it out because search engine optimization is one of the core factors that will help you to be a successful blogger . So you cannot just avoid this and if you do so you will be avoided like other million blogs out there which are unnoticed . The best thing about search engine optimization is that every right move gets paid really well . First There will be difficulty in doing SEO but after some time, you will get used to it and it will be just a simple task for you
Did you know that there are other bloggers out there who has joined together promoting each other through the social media writing about them , joining together to make better content ? I have seen some people who build their blogger fans on facebook they are connected with other and spend most of their time improving their blogs . You can use facebook especially for that . Don’t underestimate the power of social media it is really huge and I have seen it in action don’t trust my words join some active blogger group on facebook and see it for yourself .
Making money blogging
You must have started a blog and you won’t be making money from a blog unless you have worked really hard on it for a year and trust me it is super hard for new people to make money from a blog it will take at least a year for you to start making money from your blog . Do not blog just to help others blog with an aim that you should help yourself by helping others . So how to help yourself by helping other ? Affiliate marketing is the best way to help you to make money online by helping others .
How to put this in action ?
Write a blog post that makes you money like writing about a product that will pay you when someone reads it and buy it through your affiliate link . So if you are a blogger who blogs on things like SEO , how to and other things like that trust me google Adsense doesn’t work for you really well but affiliate marketing does better job sell products through your blog and make more money . Google Adsense and other networks like that works for websites like wife feed , diply and other tech blogs having lots of traffic . You will only make a decent amount of money from Adsense if you have at least 100k page views per day to make 50$ and while when you does affiliate marketing maybe 100 page views can make you 50$ – 100$ . Now you see the difference right ?
Selling your own product
If you look at most successful blogger you can see that they have become experts in their field and they are writing ebook and creating tutorial on how to do the things they know and selling these products to their audience and most of their income comes from this kind of products because they get 95% of money as their income because they don’t have to pay to someone or either it is a commission sale so selling your own product can make you more money than the money you can earn from affiliate marketing but the thing is that you will have to sometimes work months to create a product .
Speaking about only this can take hours but I will suggest something that you have to consider while blogging . As you are blogging online and users are being connected to you online .make sure everything is fast like your
- website loading time
- Theme design
Make sure everything is where they could easily find and access it because the moment they find your content easy to use and useful they will come back for more but if your website is a complete mess they will never dare to click that link of yours in the search result .
Mistake Blog post every day
Have you noticed some bloggers post every day but they lack many things the first thing is that quality ? You cannot create a quality content in a day unless you spend a full day working for it . In the beginning stage, most of the bloggers are not a full-time blogger so they won’t have time to work on new quality content every day so they will take one to two hours every day and write a quick blog post and publish it . Most of the blog post will not be in-depth and will lakh quality . This was one of the mistakes that I use to make . If you still need a daily post on you hire some people who have great knowledge or open your blog for guest blogging if you are on WordPress or blogger you can do this really easily .
