Roadway to Blogging Success
What exactly you will find in this article is not a roadway to Blogging success because success is undefinable everyone has his own definition of success in every field same is the case here on the Blogging note for some success lies in money generation but for some the important thing is their fame/name and to them the priority is the reader.
The truth is that it’s not sure whether after following and working hard on the given foundation will give you a fruitful result or not. Yes, Blogging is not only about writing unique content, purchasing or designing the best theme or earning handsome bucks. It is the journey of passion, enthusiasm, determination, persistence, patience and continuity bundled with hardwork so don’t take it easy.
For sure, you can never be a good blogger after hiring some writers who will write regularly, after appointing a designer who can create a unique theme or after selling affiliated products but instead you have to expose your creativity and you must give your best (trying won’t work out) so the thing is quite much clear to go over the required place you don’t only need stairs but the most essential part is your will to go ahead.
Find your USP
The most essential thing that will help you to take your blog to the heights is its USP. You must jot down the uniqueness of your Blog by creating an elevator pitch, that is a description of your blog while making it as much short as you can so it will be of ease to read.
Once you are clear about what you are going to provide then you will surely get the readers who will read your content as well as buyers who will buy your products, try to be as much as straight as you can this will help you a lot in setting your Blog’s niche. Don’t try to put each and everything, be specified. Don’t fake your Identity instead build a stronger one. Create winning difference which will help you to lead the Game.
As in the first step, you have selected a niche so it is crystal clear to call the target audience now. It’s the time to showcase. You have built it, you have to create relationships and you have to be friends with them. Develop a community and convert readers into customers.
Compete with the Beast and beat them and win over their Readers. Create your profile high, make a strong portfolio. Branding your Blog will help you a lot in this process.
Be personal and don’t act a robot, the blogs in which a blogger shares his/her own experiences gain more fame/publicity and traffic and if your aim is to the real business act like a business person, keeping in mind not to be aggressive but take your business serious not light as amateurs do.
Being a designer, I will love to add it here that design says it all. Content is King no doubt and everyone is going to tell you but you will not get back again to the site which has an ugly design, I bet. We always go for the things that looks good and in that case many people will not love to read your content.
“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”—Steve Jobs
Make your blog easy, make navigation easy and let them enjoy time over your Blog. Go for common layouts because they are used to of it but add your versatility in it. Typography must be a priority while designing because Blogging is all about writing and reading. One more thing that must be in your consideration the color and whole theme of the blog: sleek, stylish and clean makes it perfect
High recommendation for responsive and interactive designs. These days magazine style themes are trending so better go for it. It is good for searching stuff and gives your content a brighter exposure.
You can go for custom blog themes. I am a die-hard fan of Thesis and loves it so much that I can not go for any other theme now.
Turn Content Classic
Don’t write. It is not just about writing but it’s about writing top-notch content.
You can write but to excel you need to learn you need to improve, you need to expand the boundaries.
Read your content as if you are the reader of the article not the writer, you will feel the difference then make it the way you will love to read. Don’t make the readers dig, write in terms of quality though you may not just try to share your view, insights are necessary ingredient. Write for yourself, write for the readers and write for the web not for the traffic, money and stats.
Read more and first be a good blog consumer than a producer, trying to be a producer before consuming will result in Epic Fail.
Bring Innovation and Creativity in your content, don’t rewrite, write which is not there on the Web. Cast Difference
Add titles that will add curiosity in the mind of your readers. Interact with the other Bloggers, and write for their Blogs. Start Guest Posting
Enrich the beauty, add videos and images with your content and review it once every month.
Don’t take me wrong. I know it is wrong, it is unethical at times but what I am saying is that tell the world that you own a blog, share the new articles you are writing but don;t flood the links everywhere.
Use plugins to make sharing easy, use them on appropriate and make it visible. Add subscription boxes either after posts or in widget area.
Add your blog address as a signature in all your mails. Get yourself and your blog on almost every social networking site. Ping your Blog often and add the content in directories. Utilize the power of social media the more you discover the more power you start owning.
All of the above mentions are interlinked to each other skipping any of these will surely affect the results. Learn more by experience rather than reading only. Try to write more and improve from the criticism. Success awaits for you.
If you think I have not mention anything or you think there is some space I have left so better fill it in comment sections.
Will love to know your views and perceptive.
