Fixing Some Common Blogging Mistakes To Get The Desired Results

How long have you been blogging? Quite some time? Is the outcome what you hoped it would be? Blogging is serious business if we consider the monetary gains. It needs consistent effort, time and a foolproof strategy to make it a profitable one.

If done smartly, blogging can not only be profitable for you but also increase brand awareness. However, people tend to make serious mistakes and instead of generating leads, end up getting none. So, we have listed 5 blogging mistakes that you need to fix if you want to be a successful blogger and get new leads.

1. Avoiding Surveys

Are you someone who tends to give surveys a miss? If you conduct a survey for your website and take time to study the results, you will be able to diagnose the problem. If your website has some traffic but you don’t get enough subscribers, then you might want to ask your readers about their interaction with your blog.

To start with, here is an example that will help you. You can conduct a survey to know what your readers love to read about the most. Your survey can go something like this:

What would you like to read about?

Social Media Strategy

Content Strategy

Branding Strategy

SEO Strategy

survey-readers

A survey depends on what kind of information you want from your readers. Once you have gathered enough responses, you can export the data into an Excel sheet to analyze the results.

2. You Don’t Have A Free E-book

People are ready to do you a favor when they get anything free from you. E-books that have solutions to their problems are perfect options to gift your readers. You can take the help of the survey and focus on a particular topic in the e-book.

For instance, if maximum viewers voted for SEO strategy, then you will need to create an e-book on Learning SEO from Industry Experts. You can focus on areas such as on-page SEO, off-page SEO, backlinks, inbound links, keyword density, etc.

3. You Forgot To Follow The Leads

When you get subscribers to your e-books, you need to put them in your sales channel. All you have to do is write a catchy email encouraging them to read blogs that are relevant to the e-book. You can schedule emails and keep your readers informed on other topics too.

People who visit the links are loyal and trustworthy ones. They will keep on returning to your site to read your blogs. The more they interact, the more they are interested in reading all your posts. It will steadily increase the time and the number of pages to your site. Now, you don’t need to worry about traffic generation, as you already have returning visitors to your site.

4. You Didn’t Put In The Effort To Write Gripping Content

When you have loyal subscribers, focus on delivering quality content. You need to create posts that are fresh and different. Stress on your expertise in your particular field of writing and invoke curiosity in the minds of the readers.

To convince subscribers to buy papers is a trick that you have to learn. You can provide one free sample that will persuade them to buy the paper. You can offer promotional prices or discounts to attract them.

5. Your Efforts Are Not Consistent

Consistency is the key to success. When your trackers are showing positive results, then you need to stick to this marketing strategy. When you have subsequent visitors to your site, only then can you try out new strategies.

  • Hi Dude

    Thanks for sharing such a wonderful article here with us.

    Actually these are those mistakes which almost every blogger do.

    I had also did so many mistakes like copying articles from other blogs.

    I can remember those days when I was very much new to this blogging world and I purchased a domain name without thinking about the niche of the blog.

    I purchased the domain name and then I thought that On which topic, I should make my website then I thought that I’ll create an another Wikipedia.. Haha lol

    And I started copying articles from Wikipedia. After putting efforts so many days, When I saw that no result is coming out then I decided that I’ll make a top 10 lists site where I can list top 10 things of every topic and again I started copying articles from a site named Listverse.

    I did like this till 7-8 months because I was very much new to all this things and I even don’t have any experience of writing articles. My English was also not good.

    Haha I know It still not good But currently I am able to write few lines But at that time, It was so difficult for me.

    I did copy pasting till 7-8 months and when I noticed that I am just wasting my time and nothing then I started finding the reason behind not getting traffic on my site.

    Then somewhere I found my mistake i.e. Copying articles from other site.

    On that day, I learnt that Google never ranks copied articles.

    So I made a decision that I’ll never copy any article and will write article myself.

    In starting days, It was so difficult for me to write an article. I first write article on my notebook and then later type in WordPress.

    After doing this few days, I tried writing directly in WordPress and any how I completed my first article in WordPress. Later I continuously did practice and it became common and easy for me.

    Now I am complete able to write in WordPress directly because Practice makes perfect. Right? :D

    There are also so many mistakes which I am still making which you have listed in this article and I am trying my best to stop doing those mistakes.

    Thanks for sharing such a great piece of content with us.

    Happy Blogging ;)
