Pro Blogger Tips You Need to Know

pro blogger tips you need to know

If you’re thinking about starting a new blog as a business rather than a hobby project, there are a few things that the pro bloggers know, which could benefit you. If you get things right from the off, you stand a far greater chance of being a successful blogger than the thousands of other people trying to make it too, so read on for the pro blogger tips you need to know:

Use WordPress.org

A lot of bloggers set up their blogs on free platforms such as Medium or WordPress.com, but when you do that, you have to stick to their rules, which can hamper your ability to advertise and earn money. If, however, you start out with WordPress,.org, you can do exactly what you want, from customizing your blog to advertising on it, right from the off, and that means you have the ultimate freedom to create the blogging business of your dreams.

Use a Virtual Address

In many places, you are required to include contact details on your blog, and even if you don’t have to, doing so can make your blog seem more trustful. However, giving out your real address may not be good for your privacy or your image. It’s far better to buy a virtual address from a company like physicaladdress.com, which is likely to be more prestigious, and more importantly, totally private, so you can receive correspondence and comply with the law, without having to give your real address away.

Go with a Great Hosting Company

Free and cheap hosting companies might seem like a good idea, but you’re running a business and sometimes, that means you have to speculate to accumulate, The thing about cheaper hosting packages is that they are often less stable, which means more downtime for your blog, and in some cases, you may even lose your content! It’s really not worth it, so search for a reputable hosting company that you can afford and avoid the cheaper, less reliable companies.

Do Your Research

To be a successful blogger, you need to add value; you need to have people trust you; you need to say something worth saying. That means that you should always do your research if you’re writing about a topic where there are facts and figures to be found. Obviously, if you’re writing about yourself you can be as subjective as you like providing you don’t tell any lies, but by showing you’re honest and you know your stuff, you can build authority in your niche and encourage your readers to keep coming back for more.

Write with Passion

Blogs are there to entertain as well as inform., Few people are going to subscribe to a boring blog, so learn how to inject your sentences with interest and excitement, and always write from the heart if you want to pick up readers.

Set Up Lots of Income Streams

The more income streams you have, the more opportunities you have to make money, so place ads on your blog, accept paid guest posts, write ebooks….

I hope your blog is a huge success!
