30 Best Blogging Tips and Tricks For Beginners



Blogging Tips For Beginners
These blogging tips are for new bloggers 
(newbies)


Before Starting Out, Think About How to Monetize Your Blog

One of the biggest mistakes most beginners make while starting a blog is they create content first, try few ways to increase their traffic and then they find ways to monetize their blog.

Let me be honest. If you follow the same path, you will eventually fail to build a blog that makes money. Why?

Without finding ways to monetize your blog before you even begin, you will hardly make any money online.


  • Begin with the end in mind. Always!


Analyze your top competitors and find out how they are monetizing their sites. Find out their traffic generation sources, how they are captivating their readers to buy their stuff and repeat the same.

You don’t always have to reinvent the wheel. Spend time in carefully understand your competitors and you will find smart ways to monetize your blog.


Stand Out From The Crowd

You are not a Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga or Barak Obama to let people remember you.

There are literally a gazillion of blogs out there, and 99% of them are pure junk. There’s just too much competition going out there online.

It’s really hard to build a successful blog that makes money in 2019 because of heavy competition. If you are offering the same advice everyone else is offering, why would anyone follow you and buy what you recommend?

Observe any highly profitable blogger such as Darren Rowse, Pat Flynn, Seth Godin, Derek Halpern; you will notice that they have built million dollar blogs by focusing on one thing: standing out from the rest of their competitors.

If everyone else is writing short posts in your industry, create in-depth and gigantic posts. You will stand out.

If everyone else is creating blog posts, do videos or podcasts. You will surely stand out.

If everyone else in your industry is using AdSense to monetize their blogs, try email marketing! You will stand out.

Write in-depth Articles

Did you know that articles with over 2,000+ words always rank well in Google?

Gone are the days where you can simply increase your overall search traffic by posting daily with short articles of 500 words. Now the short articles won’t give you an edge.

They simply don’t help you in getting better search rankings.

Google wants to give the BEST information to its users, and it’s giving more importance to the sites that are publishing in-depth and evergreen articles.


So when you are just starting out, instead of writing 10 short articles in a month, write just 2 in-depth articles. It can really help you in the long run.


Write Lots of Posts... For Others

One of the common complaints I hear from new bloggers is that “I’m not getting enough traffic.”

Well, how do you get more traffic if you are writing just for your own blog?

Write for other blogs, do guest blogging and increase your online reach. Build some quality links and increase your overall domain authority.

That’s how you get traffic. That’s how you improve your overall search rankings for any keywords you are targeting for.

Don’t make a mistake of writing just for your own blogs. That’s a biggest blogging mistake anyone can make especially in the beginning.

And before submitting your article to any quality site, make sure your content is top-notch, well-researched and well-written. Avoid making silly grammatical mistakes otherwise it will get rejected.

You can use tools like Grammarly to double check your content for any spelling or grammar mistakes.

Build Some Authority

In online, people simply don’t buy from strangers.

They only buy from those whom they trust or already have connections with. It all boils down to one thing: trust and authority.

Without building authority, trying to increase your blog traffic is just a waste of time. Even if you bring a lot of traffic, you will surely struggle to make sales online.

That’s the reason why you should start focusing on growing your online authority from day one. Here are few quick tips to build authority online.

Don’t recommend the products or services you personally don’t use. NEVER promote a product just for the sake of money. If you focus on your audience, they will take care of your business. It’s as simple as that.

Get testimonials from the experts. Do interviews with them. Ask them to tell few nice things about your content or site. It will all add up in the long run.

Write guest posts for top blogs and showcase the portfolio on your blog’s home page. If people see your guest posts landing on top blogs, they think you have some skills, so they don’t hesitate to read your stuff.

It’s Useless To Focus on SEO When You Are Just Starting Out

SEO is a HUGE ocean.

If you are just starting out, focusing on SEO to increase your traffic is a waste of time. Why?

You might get penalized by keyword stuffing or quickly building bad backlinks. You never know what SEO mistakes you are making unless you gain some basic SEO skills.

That’s the reason why you should forget about SEO in the beginning and just focus on writing engaging content for your readers.

Make your content so good that your readers share it on social media, and you will attract backlinks from other blogs naturally.

SEO is all about quality backlinks and proper keyword research. Unless you know those two factors very well, focusing on SEO doesn’t give you any good results.


Quick Note: Even if you don’t focus on SEO at all in the beginning, make sure to learn the SEO basics. That way you can nurture your SEO skills to use them later to bring more traffic from search engines to your blogs.


Connect With The Influencers

Having connections with the influencers and top bloggers in your industry can help you with the following things.

It can help you leverage their blog traffic

It can help you increase your sales (whenever they name drop you)

It can help you boost your expertise
And the above 3 factors are enough to build a highly successful blog really quickly.

Always find ways to network with the influencers in your field. Instead of seeking their help, think about how you can offer them help for free.

And always get in touch with them either via social media or email. Email outreach is really essential to take your blog from zero to hero.


Focus On Just #1 Website Traffic Source

Really, there are so many ways to increase traffic to a website or blog. Social media, email list, guest posting, videos, content marketing, blog commenting, email outreach and the list goes on and on and on.

And everyone loves traffic. That’s why most beginners spend their time on being everywhere to get more traffic to their sites.

But that’s a surefire way to burn out. What happens when you spend most of your time on every traffic source under the sun and don’t get good results as you expect?

You will assume that driving traffic to a blog is hard, and you will eventually quit.

That’s why focus on just 1 traffic source at a time. Be it social media, content marketing or SEO. Focus on one traffic source, spend all your time on it and you will eventually become so good at it that you will see better results.

Try every traffic source for a month or two. Then, focus on another one and so on. That’s how your site traffic will grow in less than a year.


Monetize Your Blog From Day 1

The best way to monetize your blog is to create content, drive traffic and then monetize that traffic, right?

Wrong!

Although blog monetization strategy differs from niche to niche, monetizing your blog from the beginning is often the most effective way to best define your target audience.

Once you clearly know what your target audience wants, you can create more laser focused content, drive more targeted visitors and attract more sales to your sites.

On the other hand, if you wait until you get a certain amount of traffic and then monetize, you may fail to grab the attention of right people.

What happens if you attract random website traffic?

You will struggle to make sales! So think about how to monetize your blog’s traffic from day one.


Build An Email List Before You Even Begin

If you are reading blogging related articles for a while, you might already have heard about the importance of building an email list.

If you ask any successful blogger or marketer to share their biggest blogging mistake, 90% of them will say “I did not start list building from day 1.”

No, you shouldn’t build an email list from day one.

But you should rather consider doing it even before you launch a new blog.

Just imagine for a second, how great it would be to have at least 500 or 1000 email subscribers waiting for your first blog post?

That’s why you should consider growing your email list even before you even launch.

Here are few ways to do just that.

Email all your friends, blogging buddies, relatives about the launch of your new blog. Tell them, what you are going to blog about and ask them to subscribe to your email updates.

Conduct giveaways. They help you quickly boost your email subscribers.

Use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Spread your message. Ask people to subscribe to your new blog. Tell them you will offer freebie once the blog goes live. Meanwhile, you can create an eBook, video or something else to offer it for free.
