Everybody wants to have or start a blog. Most times they struggle with so many information they see on online and from what they hear, still, it doesn’t go well.
In this post am going to give you a detailed breakdown of things you have to do before thinking of having a blog. If you carefully follow this information I promise you will excel and do great with your blog.
Having a blog is a great thing, but you really have to do so many things. Designing a blog and filling it with so many information from anywhere will be a very bad thing. Also, avoid the thought of copying information from other site, because google may end up blacklisting your blog.
One of the reason while many people want to blog is because of google adsense and it’s like. Today, I will be combining my experience as a web developer, Digital Marketer and a Blogger to give you a proper foundation that will make you grow your blog fast even without spamming your blog with wrong information.
And let me remind you, if your mind is to make money seriously, blogging is not for you. Just quite now and when you’ve changed your mind, you can then come back.
Starting a blog requires a lot of hard work and takes a long time to grow your audience. It is pretty disappointing if you publish your first post and nobody reads it, but you need to undergo these awkward moments. Do not expect the results immediately.
According to a popular blogger, he said “Successful bloggers are patient enough to keep working on their blogs for a long time. It’s tough, but they know it’s worth it.”
Here are the tips to start a blog
Select a Niche
Selecting a niche is what many blogger escape to do. But you need to select your target audience and their interest. But in selecting your niche, there is an extra thing i would like you to know. Always select a niche that is not filled up, because it will be a difficult thing for you to survive if you don’t, especially when you have many competitors. For example NEWS, EDUCATION, SCHOLARSHIPS niche etc
Also, even if you have interest on any of these Niche, make sure you fully build your system and style to be different from others. Obviously no niche is absolutely free. But like i tell my students, is all about “packaging”.
Quantity and Quality
As a blogger, you must have rich information. Definitely, your audience will always want a post that has rich information on any topic.
Most time the Quality should be placed above the Quantity. Give your reader enough information and stop aiming at fulling your blog with shallow information.
Get Social Handles
Definitely, you don’t expect people to run to your website if you don’t connect with people on social media at least.
