#30DaysSuperBloggingTips: DAY 30


DAY 30, #BloggingTIP30


Don’t Give Up Just Yet

It really frustrates anyone who is blogging for several months or years and quitting just because of lack of sales or traffic.

I know you might have tried almost every single strategy to persuade your blog/website visitors to buy your stuff.

But I suggest you DON’T quit.

Instead, read marketing and psychology related books.

I highly recommend Influence, How to Win Friends and Influence People, Think and Grow Rich books if you are starting out.

You will get plenty of ideas on how to sell without sounding like a sales guy.

Always remember why you started in the first place when you are thinking about quitting.

Motivate yourself to continue and focus on the next step, not on the final result.

You will surely get rewarding results in the long run for being persistent. 

Final Thoughts

Building a highly profitable blog is not a sprint.

It's a marathon.

Linda Ikeji didn't build a million naira blog within a month.

It took her a lot of time to REALLY start making money from it, and it's now making millions EVERY single month.

You should remember the same while growing your blog.

It takes time to create a highly informative, engaging and profitable blog.

Once your blog starts making money, think about various ways to automate it without sacrificing its quality.

Use your time to grow it bigger and launch other products or services to boost your overall income.

So what are your thoughts about all the blogging tips shared here?

Update Yourself with New Information

Do you know the BIGGEST mistake most bloggers make?

It’s rehashing content.

Why should anyone read your stuff if you are repeating what everyone else is saying?

To create a profitable blog that makes money and adds value to others, you need to research a lot.

Read often.

Write more.

Be creative.

And create problem-solving content that’s useful for your target audience.

To do that, you need to gain more knowledge.

Read books.

Watch TED talks.

Go through the answers on Quora (it’s a great platform for intellectuals).

Create Google Alerts for your targeted topics to get updates about the latest and trending news.

Update yourself with new information. Always.

Automate Everything

When I say automate everything, it doesn't mean you should start creating blog posts using automated tools.

It means hiring someone to write your posts, seeking SEO help from others, increasing your sales by hiring a marketer, etc.

We all know blogging means doing a lot of things from creating content to posting on social media to increasing SEO traffic to boosting your sales.

If your blog starts generating money, you can spend up to 50% on hiring others to automate your blogging needs.

That way you can save a lot of time, and you can use that time to make more money online.

That's what every successful marketer do to grow their businesses online.

Start Events/Webinars


Do you know the #1 list building strategy that has highest conversion rates?
It is creating webinars.

Every successful writer and marketer is using webinars just because of their conversion rates. 

So give a try to creating webinars around the topics that solve your audience problems.

Try to tie up with the influencers in your niche.

Do interviews with them.

Ask people to join your list to watch your webinar recordings. 

You can also consider using Google+ hangouts to you build and grow your lists. 

Likewise, conducting or attending blogging related events can also be a huge help.

Not only you will find like-minded people to connect but events will also help you grow your online business.

Take Your Social Media Efforts to the Next Level

One of the fastest ways to get more exposure and increase your blog sales is to harness the power of social media.

It's the quickest way to go viral online if done right.

Gangnam style, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga - all became famous because of social media.

They all have millions of followers, and their net worth is over a billion dollars.

That's the POWER of social media sites.

If you are not yet using it properly, this is the time to do it right.

Instead of focusing on all the social media sites at once, focus on ONE source at a time.

Give a try to Facebook.

Try all the strategies to get more attention (create memes, Infographics, try Facebook ads, create compelling headlines, connect with the influencers, etc.).

Then move on to Twitter.

Repeat the same.

Make Writing Your Regular Habit

Great bloggers are great writers.

Great writers create content that sells.

They know how to write powerful content that attracts the attention of anyone.

90% of the bloggers fail to get traction with their blogs just because they lack copywriting skills.

Again, I’m not saying that you should be a prolific writer to create captivating content.

All you need is to care about your audience.

You need to have a burning desire to write magical words.

How can you create content that sells then?

The simple tip is: write EVERY single day.

It doesn’t matter what day of the week is.

It doesn’t matter whether you are using a laptop or paper.

Just write every day.


That’s the only way you can improve your writing skills.

SEO is Not Exactly What You Think

SEO is all about giving top notch priority to your blog audience, not keyword stuffing.

If you’ve been blogging for a while, you already know the fact that you need more links to make your content rank well in search engines.

Think of SEO as a long-term strategy (a marathon, not sprint).

You won’t get massive search results overnight unless you have unlimited budget or great domain authority.

SEO is social.

Social media is the new SEO.

To get more out of SEO, you need to persuade your audience to share your blog posts on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. It’s not easy.
It takes time, consistent efforts and lots of trial and errors.

But once you get the initial traction, you will start getting more search rankings with the help of boost in your social shares.

More Blog Traffic is NOT equal to More Sales

“People pay you not page views.”

Always remember to focus on the people and gaining their trust instead of getting more traffic.

Yes, I agree that more website traffic is good.

But...

What’s the point of getting a million page views a month and not making any sales?

So remember to focus on defining your target audience.

Find out what they truly want.

Figure out their needs and wants and provide solutions either by offering your services or recommending others products.

Don’t put all your Eggs in one Basket

If you are an advanced blogger who has been blogging for a long time, you don’t have to invest all your time, money and efforts into only ONE of your blogs.

Diversify your income sources.

Diversify your traffic sources.

Find new ways to bring both traffic and sales to your blog(s).

You never know when Google is going to penalize you.

You never know what happens after 5 years in your niche.

So the smart move you can make today is to brainstorm all the ideas for making more money and building a solid email list who are eager to buy your products.

Automate the stuff (along with your content creation strategy) and work as less as possible on your current blog to build a new stream of business.

Building an Email List is Not Enough

99.9% of the marketers and bloggers say “the money is in the list.”

Is it really in the list? Or is it in effectively marketing the list?

Seriously, building an email list is NOT enough.

You have to sell. You have to create engagement. You need to build trust. You have to find ways to sell your email list.

It can be anything from products to services to promoting affiliate products.

But the problem with most bloggers who build email lists is that they don’t make much money.

Do you know why?

They don’t create awareness about the products or services they promote to their audience.

What happens when you try to sell to someone who doesn’t know anything about your products?

Well, they DON'T buy!

They don’t even respond to your emails.

That’s why I said, building an email list is not enough.

You should look for ways to educate your subscribers, help them more and then find ways to make money from the list.

Only then, you can do justification to your email list.

Create an email autoresponder that automatically sends emails to the new subscribers.

Make sure it has meaty emails that are filled with great content, not promotional related stuff.
