How to get more Twitter followers (and boost your blog’s traffic)

How-to-get-more-Twitter-followers-

Who doesn’t want to get more followers on Twitter? I’ve yet to meet someone who’d say its enough. Not just with Twitter followers but also with blog traffic.

In both these cases we all need MOAR of those, right?

Well I used to take Twitter very lightly. Mainly because I was not using the platform more aggressively. When I first got to know about Twitter a few years ago, it sounded all strange to me and I felt totally lost.

The tweets seemed to have a very little life time. There is too much noise. There are millions of tweets going out in a specific day and Twitter has 302 million monthly active users.

Now, that’s a BIG number and if I am not on Twitter I am … [Read more...]

How to boost engagement of your blog for good?

How to boost engagement of your blog?

So you are publishing blog post after blog post. You get some traffic, but that’s it. Nothing else happens!

No sales; no subscriptions; no affiliate sales; no email opens; nothing!

Now that’s heartbreaking isn’t? Really, really heartbreaking.

And, it doesn’t matter whether you get a trickle of traffic or really good traffic. All that matters is engagement.

That might be a very bold statement. But I am not taking it back.

Traffic is of no use without engagement. Which is why we all talk about targeted traffic.

Pointless traffic that comprises of people who just come to your site, stay for a few seconds (or not!) … [Read more...]

6 Unique Ways to Improve the Conversion Rate in Affiliate Marketing

6-Unique-Ways-to-Improve-the-Conversion

Please, admit it. We want Affiliate Sales.

Back in 2014, when I was promoting an online marketing toolkit on my personal blog, I wasn't getting affiliate sales---I spend first four weeks on creating content, sharing it on social media and telling people about it.

Nothing happened…

I decided that I'm not going to spend next four weeks that way. Instead, I will buy this product, use it personally and then I'll start sharing my experience with my readers.

And, it worked.

Would you be surprised if simple things improve your conversion rate?

Who doesn't like to make more money?

Bloggers and Webmasters struggle to improve their conversion … [Read more...]

What is word of mouth marketing and why it ROCKS

What-is-word-of-mouth-marketing-and-why-it-ROCKS

Marketing is one of the scariest departments of blogging (SEO is another one of those).

The word “marketing” sounds too geeky and too alien that it makes most bloggers faint; as if it is not for the faint hearted!

And in fact marketing is not a separate department as many bloggers think of! It is so very well integrated within whatever you do with blogging.

You write a blog post - that is marketing

You leave a blog comment - that is marketing

You do a guest post - that is marketing

You share your blog post in social media - that is marketing

9 Effective writing habits to help you succeed as a blogger

9-Effective-writing-habits

So you want to grow your blog. You know you have to publish content consistently in order to gain traction.

You need to create landing pages and squeeze pages for getting sign ups. You need to create products and product sales pages.

Writing is involved in every bit of work you do as a blogger.

So your blog is not getting the results you want, right? Be it traffic, sales, affiliate sales, traction, authority - nothing happens!

Consistent Blogging: How to blog regularly?

How-to-blog-regularly

I have been blogging since 2010 and my family members are very much aware of my mindset. Whenever I do the household chores with more interest like trying out new recipes in the kitchen, they understand that I’ve updated my blog with a good post. Likewise, if I go mad or get frustrated over petty things, they easily realize that I haven’t published a post for a long time. You might be taken aback by this revelation and may also wonder with this happening but it is the truth!

Okay, let’s get into the topic!

201 Motivational quotes for personal and business success

201-Motivational-quotes-for-personal-and-business-success

Motivation is something that fuels our progress. And, that fuel has to be topped up quite often so you don't run out of it and come to a halt at one point.

Every New Year, we find our motivation to be quite high (which is why there are so many New Year resolutions). And what happens a week after; or a month after New Year?

The motivation drains and the resolutions are forgotten.

Similarly when we start something fresh - say a new project, or a new e-book, or a new blog, the motivation is pumped up.

But half way through the motivation dies - so does the project.

But it doesn't have to be that way. If you keep your motivation topped up, you can easily work on your projects with a solid level of enthusiasm from start to finish!

I often remind myself "why" am I doing something in order to … [Read more...]
