Pretty sure you’ve heard of the awesome lifestyle Blogging allows you to live. It affords you the leisure to go anywhere you want at any time. You’ve made lots of money so spending is no biggie during you’re vacations. You could even work in your jammies.
But before those blessings come, there some things you need to do. And you might be blogging now and you’ve been heading nowhere.
So here are 4 tips to step up your blogging game.
Write Long Articles
There are a lot of bloggers who think they don’t need to write long and in-depth articles. The bloggers that just do a 400-word post and call it a day feeling on top of the world.
Sure you can do that, it’s easy and you’ll be done with 3 articles in a blink. But if you really are blogging for money and not a hobby, you should be ready to give it more than that. Why?
Well, because writing short length post won’t make you rank well in search engines. It lets the search engine robots think you’re not knowledgeable enough for this topic. So when someone searches “Best gardening tips”. That 2000-word post will be presented first, while your 400 sits in the dust.
Also, it doesn’t inspire confidence and your audience won’t see you as an expert in your niche. So be sure to make sure you’ve exhausted the topic before you drop the pen.
Network With Bloggers In Your Niche
You’re not the super blogger who has an audience of millions and an email list of thousands. You’re barely reaching hundreds and you’re fighting really hard to gain followers.
But instead of sitting on the ground wondering why your life is so hard that you have a small audience. Why don’t you just reach out to the kings who have plenty?
You don’t have to go begging. You are way past that level. You just take the higher road and you write a superbly awesome post in their niche. Post so good, you don’t want to read because if you do, you’ll cry at its awesomeness. And you share it with them. If they like it they’ll share it with their people with your link in the author bio. Just like that, you’ll have a nice boost in traffic.
Build Email List
