Blogging is a very fast growing industry in the present era and has been around for almost a decade now.
But How to start a blog?
What are the mistakes that most of the bloggers make? Are still the most common questions
And the one who has answer to this question wins as a blogger.
It can be seen that there are millions of websites that are working hard day and night to rank on top of Google (which is quiet complex)
But most of them fail
The banner image that we have user for our blog today explains what our intentions are today for our users.
We have tried to explain online world as an ocean where their are millions of bloggers and the text area shows how much of them actually knows about “How to start a blog”
There are numerous reasons behind this and we are here to discuss about some of the most constantly repeated mistakes by bloggers.
Mistake #1 NOT SETTING UP A PARTICULAR NICHE
Whenever a person starts blogging they start doing it on a particular niche they like.
It can be anything
You can see that there are numerous amount of bloggers across the internet
Some are food bloggers
Some are travel vloggers and bloggers
Some bloggers have chosen marketing as their field
Some like to write about technology
and many others as we know
So according to our expertise and observation it is necessary that while starting a blog you choose a particular niche that is of your interest and you enjoy working in that niche.
While choosing a niche you need to be quiet choosey as it is said.
Because if you choose the wrong niche and that niche is not something that interests you then you will definitely not succeed.
Because it is human nature that if you choose a field that you don’t love then working in it will not benefit you both mentally and financially.
Mistake #2 NOT DOING THE MARKET/COMPETITOR RESEARCH
It is a well known phrase in marketing that “MARKETING is all about RESEARCH”
Which is very true
Because if you are aware by the strengths and weaknesses of your competitors they only you can beat your competition.
So, not doing the marketing research and not making sure who your competitors are is again the most common mistakes bloggers commit.
They are always in a hurry to make money and all they do is just start writing and believe that they will surely start making money.
Which is not the case
Because when you do market research you come to know about the following things
Who are your competitors
Where are they from
What type of content they are posting that works for them and can definitely work for you
What is their target audience
What are the keywords that they are using in their blog
What type of people are visiting their website
What is the quality of their content
Which content has given them great results and which has not
This information seems not much but it is enough to get to know about your competitors and beat them.
So market research is must whenever you wish to start writing a blog.
Mistake #3 NOT BEING CONSISTENT
Remember ” CONSISTENCY IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS IN THE ONLINE WORLD “Advertisingeeks
Bloggers don’t understand that and give up after NOT TRYING for long with blogging.
Because consistency is the key that helps in succeeding with your business
If you are not consistent then you can not succeed
We believe that:
“Consistency is the key, stay consistent or get a job”
You can figure that out in the first few months of you blogging.
Because if you are not consistent that you won’t get results and if you won’t get results then definitely you will urge towards giving up.
Just keep on writing, keep on optimizing, keep letting people know about your blog and you will surely succeed.
Mistake #4 NOT GENERATING LEADS
Lead generation is the most important process of marketing.
Leads are the people who have visited your site and have taken some action on your site i.e subscribed to your newsletter, tried to buy something, shared their information, filled a form etc
A blogger should always be motivated towards generating leads
Because if you are generating leads then blogging is of no use
Because after generating leads you can send an email or call those people who have shown interest in your blog and keep them updated with your business and services.
You can also use those leads as a traffic source by constantly sending them emails regarding your latest blog posts and services.
Mistake# 5 THINKING THAT EVERY BLOG POST WILL GO VIRAL
Bloggers make a common mistake and think that every post that they write has the tendency to go viral, which is not true
According to the other online marketers ” One post is responsible for making a business go viral on the internet”
After that one post goes viral then every post you write, every video you make will go on trending because you have done the effort to make that one post that has attracted users towards your website/services.
So just keep on creating blog posts and drive traffic towards it, you will definitely write something that will go viral.
Because if you have made the decision to earn online in millions then you surely have the mind set to create something that can move 1000’s of people online.
Mistake #6 LACK OF LEARNING
It is a famous saying that says “IF YOU WANT TO EARN THEN YOU NEED TO LEARN”
We learn throughout our lives.
We learn how to walk
We learn how to eat
We learn how to talk
Same way we have to learn how to earn online
If you are sure that you have all the skills required to start earning online, then you are wrong.
You need to understand the fact that their are hundreds and thousands of entrepreneurs online.
And you have to beat them because they are your competition
To do that it is essential that you learn from them
There are many of them who have put forward free courses and tutorials that can help you surpass many mistakes that bloggers make initially.
Try to focus on learning.
After learning from the ones who succeeded you will automatically start earning.
So this wraps up our Blog for today.
We have tried to highlight some common mistakes bloggers make and have also tried to highlight the solutions of these problems.
