Blogging is an ever learning experience.From the day you start blogging the learning process begins and each day you learn something.Every opportunity to move forward and to improve should be explored and taken care of.The best part of our blogs are that the blogs are live. When we’re asleep , others might be reading.When we are off for a day , our blogs are welcoming visitors.
We should have a monthly checklist which needs to be taken care of and gone through meticulously.The visitors should have a feeling of belongingness when they visit our blog.This can be achieved planning our activities and having a systematic approach.
CHECK IN WITH YOUR HOMEPAGE
The homepage needs to be refreshed from time to time. The already existing subscribers know your website , the need arises for those who are new to your site.The new visitors need to spend some time exploring your home page and hence the need to refresh it from time to time.
Make sure of any kinks or sidebar ads that needs to be taken care of.The interest of the readers is only there when they find updated and interesting facts.
Homepage is the invitation to your website and hence should be inviting enough.
GUESTS POSTS AND INTERVIEWS
This is one of the most important field and is often ignored by the blogger community.The bloggers either completely ignore it or they half heartedly give interviews which is not a very healthy indication.
Giving interview to the new blogger would be an encouraging factor to the new blogger and would be a matter of joy for the blogger.
The same holds true for guest posts also . Through the guests posts we are actually aiming at a total different group of readers other than the regular ones and there is a possibility that we can get a totally new group of readers who follow you and become your regulars.Catering to a totally different type of audience would be challenging and exciting as well.
MONITORING OF THE TRAFFIC
Organic traffic is what every blogger aims at and works hard for.
Installing of google analytics will help you to get the actual statistical data like number of visitors,monthly traffic evaluation, bounce rate , page views , comments and so on.
The source of traffic generation is the main analytical aspect to be taken care of.The traffic generation helps us to evaluate the keywords through the use of which the traffic has been generated.The keyword tab needs to be studied carefully for getting the organic traffic.
Just checking the blogspots is not enough you have to do analytical research of the organic traffic and the reasons of the bounce rate which can be eventually reduced by adding the internal links.
MAINTAINING BLOG FREQUENCY
The consideration on the aspect of blog frequency is very important. Readers are used to reading your blogs at certain duration of time and if you are not able to maintain that frequency then it does not portray a responsible behavior as a blogger.
The interval of posting the blog should be consistent,if you are posting once a week or twice a week or you are posting everyday the frequency should be uniform. You can vary once a while but not always.Readers are used to reading your blogs at a certain interval and their dissatisfaction is not a healthy indication blog.
Planning blog frequency is to be done ahead of time and it should be taken care of.
GIVING IMPORTANCE TO SOCIAL MEDIA FANS AND SUBSCRIBERS
Social media is a very important platform which makes a blogger successful.All your readers are using the popular social media sites like twitter, facebook,pinterest wand so on.
You have to actually keep a tab of your social media likes, dislikes, comments and so on. It is only when you follow your fans will they start following you
Social parameters like search engines can change track but followers are there to stay. Once a follower always a follower.
Subscribers are the one who follow you dedicatedly.They are the ones who praise, analyse ,give critical analysis and so on. Once they subscribe they keep on getting notifications of your new blogs.They play a role in earning income by promoting your blog.
Give your due attention to social media followers and subscriber and do care about their comments even if they are negative comments.
GROW YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS BY CREATING VALUABLE ASSETS
Posting your blog everyday is not a good idea at all. As you need time to create assets for growing your business.
Every month spend time conducting interviews with niche authorities.
Holding of webinars, creating of ebooks,either to sell or offer as free subscription is actually needed.
Your marketing efforts every month will pay off.A product which offers the pressing solution to the target market will make you sweep the market and earn you lots of money.
Blogging is a ritual which has its own rules and regulations. The true bloggers is one who ceremoniously follows them and start treading on the path to success path.
