Unfortunately, most people think that the journey to making huge money online is a matter of setting up a blog, publishing some crappy content, putting up some Google ads, and then sleeping.
If this is how you think, I can assure you that you are only going to become a successful dreamer.
Here Are Easy Steps To Becoming A Successful Blogger
Step 1: Become A Voracious Reader
Becoming a successful blogger includes being a voracious and ardent reader.
I am sure you’ve heard the phrase:
“Readers are leaders.”
When you read extensively, you are gifted with the same knowledge successful people have.
Typically, every great and successful entrepreneur, and yes successful bloggers, are folks who are committed to a life of learning, and how they learn is by consuming the knowledge of the industry to which they belong.
I therefore challenge you to start by reading at least 20 books/blog posts on how to run a successful blog.
This is perhaps the best strategy to becoming a successful blogger.
Here are the apps that I use to read posts & books:
Feedly (available on all platforms & perfect for subscribing to blog feeds).
Flipboard(great for content discovery). There are many more..
Step 2: Dare To Be Different
According to E.E. Cummings,“To be yourself and nobody else in a world that is doing its best both night and day to make you like everybody else, means to fight the toughest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”
One of the things I told myself while starting out was never to act or be like anybody but myself.
I love Gavin Degraw’s theme music on One Tree Hill: “I don’t want to be anything other than what I have been trying to be lately. All I have to do is to think of me and have peace of mind. I’m tired of looking’round rooms, wondering what I’ve got to do or who I’m supposed to be. I don’t wish to be anything else other than me.”
You know that there are a lot of bloggers out there. Some are successful and some are not. The primary thing that will distinguish you from them is the way you communicate and air your opinions.
So basically, if someone I love and admire has their blog’s design in a way that I like, I go ahead and do something different. I make it more unique to myself.
Similarly, if someone I know publishes a sponsored post on their blog, I publish an interview post. If someone I follow closely puts up a text-based article, I make an audio post.
Doing this will make you stand out from the 70 million other bloggers on the internet. I’m not saying you should be doing the exact opposite of what others are doing, but you should try to always do something your own way without imitating anyone.
Initially, it may seem like too much of a task to do something different, but the only way to really become successful is by moving out of your comfort zone.
Step 3: Invest In Yourself And Your Blog
Sadly, a lot of newbie bloggers and average bloggers don’t like to hear this. They prefer to waste their time and energy in merry-go-rounding on the internet searching for FREE ways to promote and manage their blog.
But here’s the truth:
To achieve success with your blog means to start thinking of your blog as a business.
The only distinguishing factor between successful bloggers and failed bloggers is the intentionality and willingness to invest in themselves and in their blogs.
So you will see bloggers like Darren Rowse,Syed Balkhi, Neil Patel, and Jeff Bullas(among many others) get serious with their blog by investing money into every part of their marketing funnels. It’s little wonder how they rake in all that money and success.
You can quickly double your odds and become a successful blogger yourself by simply viewing money as an investment that is sure to yield a high ROI.
So, if you are truly committed to becoming a successful blogger, you have to rethink your strategy and be ready to invest money into yourself and your blog.
Step 4. Create And Sell Products (Add new income streams)
Since we have established the fact that your blog is a business, let’s walk through the process of becoming a business entity.
Simply by viewing your blog as a business, you get closer to the point of becoming a successful blogger. However, you will need to put some highly crucial things in place first.
Well, let’s first look at what a business is. Business, can be defined:
“Any organization that centers around the creation of products and services for mankind’s consumption.”
Ultimately, every business needs some form of investment and enough customers to whom its output can be sold on a consistent basis in order to make a profit.”
So what things do you need?
As you can already see from the definitions above, you need to create and sell products/services if you want to build a successful business.
And if you follow this steps then you would succeed in blogging.
