Some of the best blog posts I enjoyed reading were the ones that made blogging look like a piece of cake. I decided to do the same for you with these simple secret blogging tips I learned as a blogger. Blogging can be a little tasking, time taking, or even impossible to achieve some goals. However, I know this post will relax your mind and open your eyes to a better understanding.
Are you thinking of starting a blog and don’t know how to go about it? I have some good news for you. Here is my a to z guide on starting a blog from the scratch.
A rundown of the most important blogging tips
Make the best use of Pinterest
If you can thrive on Pinterest you can thrive anywhere. The reason is this, Blogging on Pinterest is a competition. In an hour on your homepage, you can come across over 100 pins of different bloggers writing about the same thing. You can only observe this if you are an active pinner. Therefore if your blog is getting visitors through Pinterest then you are doing a good job.
Instagram is one of the fastest place to grow your followers. I did an experiment with twitter and Instagram. I actively tweeted, followed more people, used hashtags and @s for a whole week. Ended with only two new followers. I did the same with Instagram, within two day I was up with 15 followers and in a week my followers doubled. This is how Instagram works, follow the type of people you want following you. Hashtag what your interest is and learn to follow back. For a start your following will be higher than your followers but with time there will be a balance. Maybe I’m tweeting wrongly but Instagram is fast.
Build your email list by giving freebies
However little the numbers are, they are your best chance of making sales because they trust your recommendation.
Let search engines know you exist
List your blog on search engines like google, yahoo, and bing. Make your presence know on the world wide web. Have you done that? if no head over to search console and get known.
Create business accounts for your blog
Have a business account on every social media you find yourself if those social media makes it possible. This is because business accounts give you analytics. Every blogger needs analytics. It is your eyes out there, telling you how you are doing and when you need to put in more effort.
Software are the best for affiliate marketing
When it comes to making money as an affiliate marketer, selling software brings in more cash. Some companies give 50% to 70% commission on just one product. Now you know why some bloggers boast about making so much with little traffic. First, they have an email list no matter how small the number and second they sold software.
Engage your followers
Keep your followers engaged as often as you can. That way they know you are with them. I hope you have a page on Facebook if you don’t create one now. This blogging tips only work when you try them out, so take action.
Select your plugins wisely
I don’t know why I can’t get myself to stop talking about plugins. That’s because they come in handy for every “technical” thing I want to get done. At this moment I recommend you read these post WordPress plugins: top 7 for new bloggers
Don’t forget SEO
Yeah yeah! Pinterest is good for blog traffic growth but have you tried SEO. Getting ranked on search engines like google. Meaning when users search for topics related to what you have written about, that 10000 results found in 0.8 seconds one is yours. Isn’t that sweet? words can’t describe. Work on your SEO and nothing can stop you. Hurry to sign up for google analytics
