HOW TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL BLOGGER
I should have written this post a few months ago. Nevertheless, I decided to do it today. When we say ‘successful’, we usually mean a financial prosperity and success. This is what usually meant by ‘successful’. On the other hand, success means much more that financial profit. In blogging, being successful means being popular, famous, readable, influential, and of course, rich. A poor blogger is not a successful blogger. All of the successful bloggers are rich. If a blogger cannot monetize his own blog, he cannot be classified as a successful blogger. Loads of pioneer bloggers complain that blogging has been transferred into a money-spinning movement. Some years ago, while blogging, bloggers were not concerned about monetization and other mercantile issues. Nowadays, most of the bloggers launch and develop their blogs for the sake of money. It is quite understandable and I do not judge anyone. We live in the age of capitalism, and therefore, we should obey common capitalistic rules in order to survive.
As it was previously said, a successful blogger is the one who is famous, popular, influential, and rich. Blogging is a very sophisticated system of dissimilar activities. If you have not started blogging yet, you might assume that blogging means simply writing, editing, and publish your posts on your blog. It is not as simple as you consider it to be. A successful blogger is a universal person, who has mastered his skills and knowledge in different online sciences. Some of them are SEO, affiliate marketing, sSocial Media Marketing, Content Marketing, PR, and many other things. A successful blogger is a universal personality that is perfect in different fields of sciences and technologies. Therefore, it is very difficult to become a truly successful blogger.
In this post, I am going to give you some of the most effective tips that will let you become a successful blogger.
1) CHOOSE THE RIGHT BLOGGING NICHE
The first thing every blogger needs to do is to choose an appropriate niche for his blog. As I have already mentioned before, it is necessary to write about your passion and interest. If you are blogging about something that is not your true passion, sooner or early, you will be fully exhausted. Secondly, it is necessary to know something in order to teach others. There are loads of bloggers, who started blogging, but in the result, they gave up very soon, because they had nothing to share with their readers. If you are good at something, you should blog about it. Oppositely, do not start writing about something that is out of your scope. As you see, I do not write about medicine. Do you know why? I know nothing about it. This is why I am not blogging about medicine. Of course, I know something, however, this knowledge is not sufficient to start blogging about it. Do you wonder why I don’t write about technologies? I don’t do it because I am not interested in technologies. If I was writing about the things that I do not know or I am not interested in, I would be exhausted very soon. Therefore, it is highly important to write about the thing you are able to write about.
2) GENERATE HIGH-QUALITY CONTENT
You have already heard many times that content is king. This saying is absolutely correct. First of all, high-quality content will captivate your readers. Thus, they will be interested in visiting your blog on a regular. Secondly, high-quality content is very important for an SEO of your blog. Search engines hate duplicate materials. Bloggers, who simply copy someone’s posts and paste them on their blogs, will not last long. In the beginning, search engines will simply place them on the worst ranks. Further, they will be penalized by Google and other major search engines. Hence, their blogs will not appear in SE. Readers want unique and original materials. Otherwise, they won’t be interested in the particular websites. Work for your visitors, dedicate your time to blogging, prepare good content, and one day, you will be rewarded.
3) PROMOTE YOUR BLOG
There are loads of different ways to promote your blog. Some of them are Social Media Marketing, SEO, content marketing, and many other free methods. In most cases, the previously mentioned options are not free. Professional SEO services always cost some money. Of course, there are some ways to enhance your SEO free. Nevertheless, it is not the most effective path to succeed in SEO. Social Media Marketing also requires some investments. Advertising your blog on popular blogs may cost you several thousands of dollars. It is definitely the most expensive method to promote your blog.
Even if your blog contains brilliant posts, you will never succeed if people do not discover your website. To become a successful blogger, you will need to use all the available tools to promote and advertise your blog.
4) ENLARGE YOUR KNOWLEDGE
To be able to write and share your knowledge with your readers, you will need to learn new things. If you are blogging about SEO, you should follow all the famous web resources dedicated to SEO. Read all the news and articles dedicated to the main niche of your blog. Thus, you will always have something to share with your readers. No matter how much information you have, one day, your knowledge will be fully exhausted. If you do not learn new thing, sooner or early, you won’t be able to write anymore. The only way to become a successful blogger is to regularly enlarge your knowledge.
5) ESTABLISH YOURSELF AS A KNOWLEDGABLE EXPERT IN YOUR INDUSTRY
First of all, a successful blogger is always an expert in the industry he writes about. People tend to trust authorities. Therefore, you need to establish yourself as an experienced, skilled, and professional specialist in the field you are blogging about. This will guarantee you a huge amount of regular and devoted readers.
Following the above-mentioned tips will put you closer to your aim. However, these recommendations do not guarantee that you will become a successful blogger. Blogging is not all about being creative and productive. What is more, you need to be very lucky!
