How to Stand out as a Successful Blogger: There are a lot of bloggers out there besides you. Many of them are talking about the same things you are. Yet, they have the same goals.
Have you ever felt like you just weren’t unique enough to really stand out? How can you stand out from the crowd?
Lots of people try to earn money online but very few gets success. One of the best ways of earning online is blogging. Blogging is one of the best career opportunity these days. Blogging needs lots of hard work, research and long working hours. But one thing came into my mind can everyone get success in Blogging? If yes, why still many bloggers fail and give up their Blogging. Why many blogs get into parked page after a year and many people, don’t even bother renewing their Blog? The answer is the lack of passion and motivation.
Tips To Become A Successful Blogger
1. Choose a unique topic
It is easier said than done to choose a topic that is unique from everyone else today in a blogosphere as crowded as we’re currently in – however opportunities do arise to start blogs on topics that are new trends, products or ideas. Being first doesn’t guarantee success – but it can help.
2. Have a unique design
Having a high-quality design for your blog which backs up your personal brand is important. That personal brand (when executed correctly) is what makes you stand out in any market, but your blog’s design has to back it up. People need to arrive on your blog and know what you’re about in a few seconds.
3. Useful Content
Perhaps the best way to stand out from the crowd and make an impression upon people is to produce content that impacts them in some way. Write something that matters, that helps people, that solves a problem, that enhances people’s lives and you drastically increase the chances of them coming back and bringing a friend with them.
4. Have Disciplined Work
Although every work or profession needs to be disciplined but a blogger should be more disciplined. A blogger should work according to a time-table. It should divide into writing posts, commenting on other blogs and social networking promotion. If you want loyal readers, then you have to post regularly on your blog. If you do not blog regularly, then you will lose your readers.
5. Offer something different
When it comes to people who offer products, what can you offer which stands out from your competitors? For example, if everybody in your market does digital goods, perhaps offering something physical will make you stand out in a good way.
6. Love Your Readers
This is key in the early days of a blog when readers seem scarce. The reality is that the 10 readers that you DO have already are a powerful resource – focus upon them rather than the thousands of readers that you DON’T have. Love them – thank them for their comments – involve them in your blogging – promote them and the sites that they have and in doing so you’ll be building loyalty, trust and relationship that one day will pay off. Each reader you have has their own network and can open up new audiences to you.
7. Guest Post
Guest posting is an AWESOME way to get yourself out of the crowd and onto the radar of others in your market. The key is to produce quality posts and to submit them to blogs with some kind of perceived authority in your market.
8. Cite your information.
Don’t forget to include the link to your original blog post on the info-graphic! But beyond that, it’s good practice to include links to the page you pulled your information from, or, at least, the title of the websites.
Citing information not only show accountability, it also educates readers on where they can go to find more information on the topic, if they’re interested. List your blog post first to indicate that it’s the primary source, the first place they should go for more.
9. Drive People to Your Archives
one of the weaknesses of blogs as a medium is that in they often hide their best content. The content that gets most attention is the latest post – whether it is good or not. Blogs that not only highly what is NEW but find ways to highlight what is BEST in their archives draw readers to the content that is most likely to convince them to stay around for more.
10. Start that mailing list
If you have no email list, or are running a feed-only list like that offered by Feed-burner, you’re really dropping the ball. And here’s the deal… most of the bloggers out there are not collecting email addresses. That’s their mistake, but you don’t have to join them. In fact, by building a list, you have a resource you can leverage in product launches and even just to drive traffic to your own blog. Major way to stand out, because you’re building community outside of just your blog.
