Successful Blogger – Money is a prime need of everyone. Money is the main driving force and inspiration behind doing a job or business. There are multiple ways to make money. However, a few ways allow you to earn money from your hobby or interest. One of the most popular ways to earn money from a hobby is Blogging.
A successful Blogging Career gives the following benefits
- A Good Income without the pressure of the Boss.
- Name and Fame as a famous personality.
- Freedom to work from anywhere.
- Just one laptop and an Internet connection are required.
- A good feeling comes after helping an individual.
- Infinite growth potential and income.
Looking at the benefits you must be excited to become a successful blogger. However, it is a bitter fact that the success ratio in this field is very low. Daily lot of people enter the blogging field but only a few can become successful bloggers. My meaning of a successful blogger is a blogger who can do this job professionally and fulfill the financial need of his family regularly.
I am happy to share that I am able to do that so, I can call myself a successful blogger. I started blogging part-time 5 years back (as a personal finance blogger) and today I am working as a full-time blogger.
In this post, I am going to share my experience about blogging with you, which will defiantly help you to become a successful blogger.
The first thing which is required to become a successful blogger is passion. Blogging is not an easy job and it is not everyone’s cup of tea. If you are planning to become a blogger it is advisable to start blogging part-time.
Also, remember one thing if you don’t have an interest in writing you should never select this field. So, now let us look at things required to become a successful blogger apart from an interest in writing.
10 Tips to Become a Successful Blogger
#1 Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Firstly your blog should be optimized for the search engine. Your blog should rank well in a search engine to generate good organic traffic. To make your blog search engine friendly, I will advise using WordPress as a blogging platform along with the Yoast SEO plugin. You can learn SEO from the internet. However, if you don’t have time you can hire an SEO expert for your blog.
#2 Blogging Niche
Blogging Niche or blog topic plays important role in the success of a blogger. You should select your blog topic based on your expertise and public demand. If you want to become successful in blogging never start a Multi-Niche blog. Multi-Niche means with multiple topics like technology, sports, finance etc. In a multi-niche blog, you need to do a lot of hard work and the chance of success is very less. Start a multi-niche blog only if you have a big team working for you.
#3 Blog Design Speed
Blog design plays important role in the success of a blogger. Your blog design should be decent in look and easy to navigate. A unique design always draws the attention of a visitor. Along with the design, you should also look at the loading speed of your blog.
#4 Writing Skills
Writing skills and way of writing are extremely important for the success of a blogger. You should make sure to follow things.
- Whatever content you are generating should be useful to people.
- Spelling mistakes and grammatical mistakes are very less.
- Use bullet points.
- Use simple language.
- If required use images to explain things.
To become a successful blogger you need to be patient. It takes a time to learn and earn money online. It is not like you start blogging today and start making money tomorrow. It generally takes 1-2 years to make money from a blog.
#6 Keyword research
The next tip to make your blog successful is keyword research. You should find out what keywords people are using to find the content. You should try to generate content based on these keywords. I generally use Google Trends to do Keyword Research.
#7 Good content
You should always produce good content on your blog. Good content I mean to say content with value. The content is useful to everyone. In addition to that, you should also update your old content on regular basis.
#8 Regular Updates
As a blogger, you should regularly post unique content to your blog. The reader visits your blog to read fresh content. If your blog is not updated regularly readers may lose interest and never return to your blog again.
Once your blog is ready you should start marketing your blog. One of the fastest ways to generate traffic and market your blog is social networking. You should make the social profiles of your blog strong to become a successful blogger.
#10 Making Money
The ultimate goal of writing a blog is to generate money. So, the last tip to becoming a successful blogger is finding out various ways to monetize your blog. You can use various ways to make money from your blog like a direct advertisement, affiliate marketing, and Google Adsense.
