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


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.

Don’t forget to add leaving comments and writing guest post to that list. Writing effective emails also count, if you handle relationship marketing and/or answering clients’ questions.

But your writing habits don’t go quite well with your writing requirements. You are not able to finish that e-book; that sales page is in draft mode for a few weeks now.

Why your blog is boring and what you can do about it?


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

So what’s wrong? One of the main reasons why most blogs don’t work is that they are not interesting enough for the readers.

In this crowded, competitive blogosphere the last thing you want is to have a dull blog. Even interesting blogs sink into the noise of the overwhelming number of blogs that are online.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of blogs that are started every day. The competition is getting tougher by the minute.

You are in an era where you have to fight to get your readers’ attention. And no, you … [Read more...]

Consistent Blogging: 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!

What is the need of every blogger? Making Money? Skill improvement?  But these are secondary desires of the passionate bloggers. If you’re a devoted blogger, I hope that you’ve guessed the exact answer!

Yes, it’s nothing but the “Traffic”.
  • What is the key to get traffic?
  • How to decrease the Alexa rank?

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...]

How to stay focused on your blogging goals?


It is heartbreaking isn’t?

You always seem to have clear, precise goals.

But you are only able to go so far; you then go off track. You lose motivation.

You don’t finish what you started. You don’t end up achieving your goals.

You wonder how your fellow bloggers are able to launch product after product while actively networking in the blogosphere and consistently publishing at their own blog.

You wonder why you are not able to anything similar - heck, even consistently publishing content on your blog is a challenging thing for you.

When you look at all the un-achieved blogging goals and unfinished … [Read more...]

15 Good Habits (and attributes) that will transform your blog this year


A New Year is a new start; whether you see it that way or not. You unfold something new. You have a block of something fresh ahead of you!

Entering a New Year is like starting something fresh. Usually the enthusiasm is pumped up. All motivated. All is well. Until the end of January; or perhaps until the end of the second week of January.

And then every day is just like any other day, as it used to be a couple of weeks before.

Many people let years slip through their fingers without taking the days seriously. While every New Year is like a fresh diary given to us, it also indirectly reminds us that we have used up another year in our lifetime and have gone to the next.

It is said that we should live our life as if today is the last day. It is true. What if all you have is this year? What if all you have is just today?

I’m not scaring you here - but we have to … [Read more...]
