20 blogging tips for new bloggers

1) Learn About Copywriting

My first blogging tip starts with ‘copywriting’ as I believe if you know the art of copywriting then no one can STOP you to swim in the blogging streams. It’s a great way to engage your audience by writing compelling content that can attract people attention. It’s all about a way of writing the great content according to people demand and interest.

As a copywriter, you don’t need to be well qualified as most of the young people without a college degree are doing this very well to earn their living in a most respectable way.

Learn about copywriting techniques more specifically the ‘SEO Copywriting’ and follow that in your blog post writing and it will a great help for you. Brian Dean is a digital marketing blogger (founder of Backlinko) and has a great style of SEO writing to engage the audience through organic traffic. He recently wrote about SEO copywriting in details so have a look and I hope it would be quite beneficial for you to market your blog as professional.

2) Be Unique & Creative

One of the most recommended and highly acquired blogging tips is to focus on your own style of writing and choosing blog content. Don’t follow the others to copy their style. Create your own style that should be unique and creative. Try to write about engaging topics that are demanding and listed in the popular search. I saw many blog post that has been writing by following other style or similar to famous blog posts. Don’t do this!! It will ruin your own creativity.

3) Write About Trending Topics

If you are really at the start of blogging and have 0 traffic then write about instigating trending topics as people love to read about it. This technique will help you to grow instant traffic and followers.

Some people connect popular with trending topics but there is much difference so look upon it and choose your topic wisely to write.

Here is a little example, Let’s say you are working as a gaming blogger so write about the recently developed game review about which the people wants to know. To select your topic, you can also check Google Trend to review estimated traffic about your niche.

Mostly bloggers especially the part-time bloggers don’t follow the proper blogging schedule which is most required. So, It’s advisable and recommended to make a proper blogging plan by using premade blog planner or using your own custom plan to write about your post or publishing with consistency.

Mostly blogger ask, why the blogging schedule is important?

As a matter of fact, it’s important to schedule your post so the search engine knows about it like you are regular in your postings and work as a devoted blogger. Google crawlers preferred sites to rank with new content with inbound links.

5) Target Your Audience

Another blogging tips for the new blogger to write about like-minded people to attract your target audience. What your audience demand from you to write. Think about it and write about those topics that can be clickable by them.

The best way to write a targeted topic for your audience is to review quora, comments, forums and other related places to note people interest then write a keyword based blog post to attract the audience. If you are able to do this then your blog will be flourished with loyal subscribers.

One of my friend blogger who passionately writes about cooking recipes recently hit the 100K visitors per week just in 6 months of blogging. I asked her about the secret… She said I was writing day and night about new recipes that people want to know and I found their interest by using ‘Google Keyword Planner’.

If you deliver, what people want then success in your hand. I don’t remember the name but it’s a famous saying that “Never think how to sell only think what people need”. If you do, you will hit the pot.

6) Be User-Friendly, Candid and Soft

I believe on this “sweet words can take the heart” so you can win the people mind and heart by writing soulful candid and soft posts. Don’t be aggressive, write with positivity, and make sure user-friendliness should be there.

As a blogger, you have to facilitate people so give them quality solutions to their problem. Whatever the topic you are choosing to write think about the content with the fresh mind and write in good mood it will surely create a big influence on your output. If you are tired, feeling messy and avoid that time.

As a blogger, I feel it’s our responsibility to guide people with convenience and ease. To be very honest, you can share will me whatever you feel about my post 🙂

7) Don’t Ignore the Power of SEO

8) Social Media is the Back Bone

Yes, it’s true!! It’s a great help to attract instant traffic. Also recommended for new bloggers to create social media traffic to divert traffic on their blog. Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin could be a great help to you.

On a personal note, I like Facebook and Google Plus, as I noticed it rank your links in a search engine.

By using social platforms, you can engage your audience to multiple blog traffic and it’s also easy to make a community based on your network. Using Reddit and Stumbleupon can also make a big difference to boost your content.

9) Don’t Compromise Quality over Quantity

Yes, it’s 100% true! Every blogger knew the longer content is worthful for their blog post ranking. To follow the tradition, at a start mostly bloggers write longer content which is good but it’s also important to share quality content. I saw many bloggers who are writing popular, trending and keyword based content with 600-700 words are also ranking in search engine.

Here, I want to rephrase my words again: as I am a true believer of longer content and learning this technique from experienced bloggers who write longer content that facilitates their users from start to finish.

So quality is important in all ways!! Never compromise quality over quantity!

10) Convert Visitors to Full-Time Readers

It seems like a difficult job to convert visitors to full-time readers but it becomes easy if you have something fruitful to offer your visitors to subscribe. A well defined opt-in subscriber form can effectively do this job to register your visitors as subscribers.

Offer a book, some secrets of your niche, some tips, and tricks or something related that you think will encourage your visitors to get it. This trick is beneficial to boost your blog traffic right after publishing your post as many subscribers have an opportunity to look at your post via their inbox.

Now the SSL is important to get to increase protection for your website using the security protocol layer. According to Google, the website without https will not treat as secure. To secure a website, you need SSL certificate that you can take with your hosting package in economical rates or independently purchase to activate. SSL basically ensures the sensitive data of your website’s visitors will be transferred over a secure network.
