10 Experts Share Their Blogging Secrets
Today we are talking about blogging secrets. What, secret blogging? Yes! So, you’re a blogger. You blog about life, food, beauty, fashion, travel, or whatever you want. It’s fun, you love having a piece of the internet. You’re so proud of your blog but you have low traffic, no followers, and not making money.
You want to fix this so you invest thousands in courses and ebooks from gurus who are successful. Do they work? Sometimes but not always. A lot of times you might not need to pay for expert tips and advice. You just need to know where to look.
There are actual things you can learn for free and do to help improve your blog. I found 10 blogging experts that share their secret success tips for free. Check it out:
1.) Be ORIGINAL
This is a great tip. There are so many blogs on the same topic. Be different. Niche down.
Instead of a vegan blog, do a raw vegan blog
Instead of a gluten free blog, do a gluten free allergy free blog
Ask yourself what makes your blog different and what makes you stand out in the sea of blogs. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box.
Chat with your readers, respond to their comments, say hello,thank the, for stopping by. This goes far and can turn a one time visitor into an avid follower.
Hang out in Comments and on social media. Listen to questions or struggles your audience has and be helpful finding a solution for them. Your effort is sure to be appreciated and valued.
Dont delay! You should be collecting emails for your subscriber list from day one. I made this mistake on my first blog. Why?
- I thought it wasn’t important enough to start right away
- I thought it was too hard
- I didn’t want to put in the work to get it set up
Here’s the truth about email list building: it’s necessary and it’s easy!
Yes, don’t worry, it is really easy.
First, get a ConvertKit account. Then, set up a pop up. Create 1 freebie offer (like an special blog post that only subscribers get access to). Lastly, grab the ConvertKit plugin for WordPress and set it up.
Your popup will collect emails for you and you can insert your freebie form wherever you want in your blog. Done!
6.) Make it a Habit
If you want your blog to feel like the real deal, get loads or traffic and make a lot of money, you have to treat it like a job. And, be consistent.
This means, posting on your blog regularly, posting on social media on a regular basis, interacting with fans and your readers, constantly learning, always looking to improve, etc.
7.) Promotion is KING, Content is Queen
This one is from me. You’ve probably heard it the other way around, right? Content is king. I hear that all over the internet. While having quality content is super important, what’s an amazing blog post without readers?
Super Promo Tool: Tailwind
That’s why promotion is even more important than your content. For every hour you spend researching and writing your post, you should spend 2X-3X that time on promotion.
8.) Better headlines are just better
Check out Coschedule’s Free Headline Analyzer tool to help you make the best headlines for your posts.
This is so true. There are free stock photo sites available but nothing beats having your own paid stock pics. It makes a big difference.
10.) Make it easy to read
- At least 250 words
- Short paragraphs
- Make it an easy, quick read
- Add graphics
- Make it shareable too!
