Some people, who want to make money from their blogs; have many questions. How? Is it possible? Can I make Money? Will my Blog become famous? And so on.
I wanna say Yes, this is possible and it is very easy. Despite, you have to just read a little about how to make a successful blog. After you know all, the doors are open and you may step in to the Blog Business. There are people who are making a lot mistakes while publishing their blog for the first time, and after they have to adjust a lot more because they read and realize their mistakes. To not make this mistake again, I am happy to share the fundamental tips on how to start. Here are the main things that you must configure first, plan on them first and work smartly.
1. A Clean Website/Blog
a. Your blog is your house. As much you keep it clean and elegant, that much your visitors want to come and enjoy of what they were searching for. Choosing a classic and elegant template is a top priority.
2. Your Blog/Website Name (URL Address)
a. Keep it short and easy understanding. Make sure it’s that simple to remember.
b. Chose the one that fits your site more and if your site is multi contextual then figure out for any phrase so that it was easy to pronounce. Let’s say Facebook. Test this word if your mouth has a difficulty while pronouncing. If not, then figure out pretty similar words for your site.
3. A simple well recognized Logo
a. Make sure your logo is that simple so that it was easy to remember and recognized. In this case let’s take the example of Google and Facebook. Do you see how clean and classic/simple they are?
4. Color Combination
a. Think of 2 or max 3 colors that are pretty similar to each other and stick the same color on your website/blog. Don’t use multi funky color as it will make your website look cheap and your visitors might not take serious your contents. I prefer, chose black, white and dark blue as a basic but if your logo has a specific color, then choice is yours.
5. Beautiful Images/Attractive Images with your logo on them
a. If you are not a designer, then this might be a bit difficult for you. But if you know the basic knowledge of design, then things will get easy. Make sure your imagines are consist of a good resolution. Not something that makes your visitors eyes blink more. Chose a nice classic and elegant images that describes the content more. I don’t suggest to copy from Google direct and paste it on your blog, Instead, try to modify and make it look nice.
6. Buttons and Links location
a. Chose a layout which will suit best your website/blog. Make sure , the visitors are able to see the buttons and links to another article or category. Top, left or right side button bar is most preferable.
7. A trust
a. You visitors may have more trust if you mention ABOUT US and CONTACT US buttons.
b. Write a nice introduction about yourself and the reason why you made this blog
8. A layout
a. Chose a layout that fits your expectation. Try to feel from the visitor side but not yours. Make sure your visitors won’s get lost or confused while visiting your side and make sure they can easily read the article freely.
9. Social Icons
a. Your readers wish to see your social pages too and get engagement with all your posts. Let them find you easily and make sure your social icons are not in the text but has a specific location like “before the article on the top” or “below the article at the button”. From sides are not bad too.
a. Your contents is the main source from where your visitors will find you. Having less than 50 contents is a bad idea of expecting a huge traffic. Suggested to write more content.
b. Quality content is the most important. Make sure you have wrote by yourself but did not copy from others. Copying from other is meaning of having absolutely zero chances to get traffic from SEO (Search Engine Optimization (Google, Bing, etc))
c. Your visitors wants to see what do you offer!? What good thing you have? Why should I visit and trust thing website?… make sure to satisfy your visitors with these answer OR, better you have to ask yourself a question of Why you are writing this content and for what reason? You will find answers from which you have to start working.
d. When you write, write it from your heart as the result of your article will be more effective as readers will gain a solution from your post which means there are chances for your visitors to come back again and read your next article.
e. Don’t write too long posts. More than 1500 words is already a long post. Or if you need to write long post, then suggest you to insert some photos on mid, videos or any quotes to not make the long post as boring post. Or separate it into 2 articles. Mention read next at the bottom of your post.
11. Title/Header Matters
a. Make sure your title/header/main title matches the article. To make it easy understand, have a look at any book’s cover as the book cover has a main title which describes the whole book.
12. Mobile Friendly
a. While creating a website, make sure to make it also a mobile friendly too. As technology is growing and new mobiles are being announced, people would love to check their favorites sites from mobile too.
