Blogging is simple to do if you are not doing it, when you get in, then you come to know how important, critical and strategic it is. A blogger has to take care of a list of things from unique and useful content to high quality web host, domain name to good premium theme, social media sharing to readers’ base development, quality of the content to quality and up-time of the web site hosting, in short a duties of a blogger towards his blog never ends.
If a blogger works delicately on his blog that means he is always thinking to make great content on the blog for readers, if he attends party, he is continuously thinking what to write tomorrow! Well, its not an ideal thing, you have to enjoy your life as well to keep your mind fresh and to work on time and to work well.
But there are people out there who are super-excited to work like that and they do! They abandon their fun and excitement in life and truly work hard just to make their blog highly successful, they understand their targets, they identify their target market, they learn that what they should seek and convey!
They bring best things out of them for their readers.
You must have heard about traditional must-have and must-do things list for bloggers and normally bloggers know and write a lot on Name and Logo, Layout Setting, Theme and topics and titles of blog posts. These are all important things to learn and to keep these things correct to grow your fan base but there are things on beyond these basics which are above to this level.
Here I am mentioning some key and advance things which you should keep in mind and think about them at least once and it can work for you, because I am following these things and they are really helping me in making my blog’s image better and content useful for the readers.
Content you make for your readers will be the most important thing for the readers. No matter how good your blog’s name and theme are. Visitors come to your blog through any medium such as social media sites twitter, facebook or Google+ or they come through search engines, you content needs to be very competitive and high quality.
Obviously search engine tries to display relevant results on the search engine page and if visitor reaches to your blog post that means he was looking for some relevant thing to your blog and particularly the blog post on he was arrived.
If your content provides some clear help to the reader and he gets an idea about what you are explaining and trying to say, then you are winner! In the response, do you have any idea what benefit you will get?
You might get a sale of your endorsement and affiliate product, you can get a reader, you can get another subscriber of your blog, and you can get some social media sharing like retweet, facebook or Google+ sharing. Its kind of great deal if you keep up the content quality and make more relevant and great quality content on your blog to win maximum hearts by giving them useful knowledge, information and things they want to know. If you get success in doing all that I mentioned in the return of making great content, you would actually be doing a great job as a blogger.
You know content is the thing which makes difference actually. Suppose there are 10 bloggers who started their blogs at the same time and in the same niche, even they have same website hosting company’s hosting, it means they all are using high quality website hosting; the difference comes only here, as they have to make their own content, with their own mind and style. See, the difference will be in their content, each of them will be making his own content on the same kind of blogs, the blogger who will be making great content, and he will be using all best practices that a blogger should do like readers engagement, Social media sharing, making outstanding and useful content, good size of content regularly, infographic addition in the post, offering blog subscription, inviting people, helping out others about the topics related to his blog, will be more successful among them.
Blogger’s attitude towards readers, his concepts and topic of the post should be positive and pleasant. Don’t try to give the impression of lack of interest. If you are not in the mood to write a blog post, then don’t write it at that time, but don’t comprise on the quality. Show your passionate views and voice to the readers.
A blogger is a person who speaks and people listen to him through his blog. When you start publishing on your blog, and your blog starts developing, your responsibility as a blogger starts increasing and with the passage of time it becomes more and more because you got talent and readers are taking benefits out of your blog, when they [readers] are taking benefits from your blog, then they have expectations and you are kind of standard in their eyes.
Just suppose you have 200 subscribers in few months, 500 facebook fans and 600 twitter followers and you are showing your attitude towards negative things and you are not explaining that you are not in favor of negativity, then its not an ideal situation.
Blogger should be there to guide and impress readers, not to demoralize and dishearten them. If you are successful in motivating people and they realize later on that you guided them well, believe me they will be your blog’s readers and customers for ever. They will trust you and they will always be with you.
When you make readers benefit your priority, they will come to know and observe one day that how reliable and trustworthy you are. Some of the readers would be thinking that in which niche all these things like positivity and readers benefit are needed, actually I have to say to them that it requires in all niches and on every type of blog which you need people to read and you want to make your blog successful. I have talked earlier about usefulness of the content and I described few posts earlier that Why I prefer useful and unique content on just unique content.
Think about it, why are you blogging? Obviously to make your blog successful and to earn income and what is the way to make your blog successful? The answer would be, by writing blog, increasing visitors and readers to increase conversion.
Readers benefit won’t be just for few types of blogs like SEO guide, blogging knowledge and guide, small business blogs, health and fitness, social media or finance, but it is necessary for every type of blogs, obviously you make content for the readers and you want more and more people come to your blog to read your content and get benefit, and you won’t mind if few of them will buy things you are offering through your affiliate programs,
Its like a spark in blogger’s words, blog’s title and in whole content of the blog. If you are not shinning then you can’t make exciting content for the readers. So how you are going to make them passionate about your blog? Really, do you need to make your readers passionate about your blog and content? Is that you are thinking?
Are you kidding?
Yes, you have to make them passionate about your choices, content, suggestions, reviews and expertise. If you as a blogger will be down and calm then how you will motivate your readers? It doesn’t mean that you talk irrelevant things, and you keep on posting unimpressive things, unnecessary topics which do not make sense, its not required actually.
Use your passion in right direction; focus more than 80 percent on quality and 20 percent on quantity as far as content development is concerned. I am saying this percentage thing to clarify that, I don’t want you to keep in mind that Hassaan said in an article that make readers happy and keep on making content,
No! Make content where you feel you have to contribute, and what is good and necessary for your blog and readers. After all blog is for your readers, you will be writing for readers, if readers are not happy with your content, then who will come to read your posts!
Spiderman? Batman? Superman? Postman?
A blogger who does not believe in giving right tips to the readers, he is not actually a professional blogger. If you have chosen a niche or category to blog, it means you have interest in that field or you have expertise in those areas to tell to the readers and that’s why you are blogging to make your blogging career successful by using your expertise and talent.
Giving to the readers is a must-job for a blogger, whether you are giving benefits through great content, by telling some secrets of your niche, giving informative guidelines, or writing personal experiences that can help readers, if your philosophy surrounds readers benefit and delivery of advantageous help to the subscribers and readers then you are going to make it on your blog.
Why people go to the doctor when they are sick? They go to him because they need right advice and medicine from the professional. Very Simple!
Social Media has become a major player today. Without Social media profiles websites and blogs can’t go further because now web and search engine policies are getting closer to the audience and to get closer to your target market and followers, blogs and websites use social media to get more and more involved with their followers and fans.
Social media sites like twitter, facebook, pinterest and google+ help blog and website owners to reach to more followers and audience and attract new followers which are out of their space at this time. The best thing about social media is, when an interesting thing gets share, its re-sharing becomes absolute, and its not a thing which is being taught to any one, social media introduced this feature to communicate and share things you like with your friends and family. So once you share an informative or interesting thing on your social media profile, your friend will see and if they like, they will also want to show to their friends in the list, so this is how things get share further.
Its true that social media following does not develop in just months, it takes years to become impressive. Social media huge profile following is a big positive for any blog. Try to develop your social media profiles, connect with your friends, try to connect with your friend’s friends, and keep on increasing your friends list and circle on social media sites, don’t go crazy for adding people, keep it calm and simple. I don’t you get banned or get restricted on social media sites over adding people unusually. Try to get more involved with the people, whenever you get time, spend some time on facebook, google+ and twitter, interact with people, participate in your blog’s relevant topic over social media sites, and show your concern and point of view.
I have explained 6 important things that a blogger should do on his or her blog to make things better on his/her blog. I have been working on these things and learned by following many talented bloggers in the field and I don’t only follow big blogs, but I also follow some average blogs and bloggers who started off few years back and have great point of views regarding blogging and search engine optimization, which helps me in understanding and getting things more clear for my blog and for my readers as well.
