Hello readers, I’m starting new Interview series.
Meet young and talented blogger Archana Tiwari.
One thing I can make sure, that this interview is going very helpful for new bloggers who want to make money via a blog.
If you want to learn more about blogging, how to start a blog, how to maintain a blog, and how to earn money via blog then you must need to read this interview.
So, let’s start . . .
First of all, thank you, Sandipan, for giving me this opportunity to share my experience and thoughts with your audience.
Myself Archana Tiwari, founder of BloggingTry.com and co-founder of HostingFrame.com. I am a housewife and part-time blogger. My partner and I run several blogs in different niches to make money and live a comfortable life.
That is a short overview of my life and trying to convert this routine to full-time very soon.
Initially, I never thought that I would start an online journey. But I am passionate about doing something new that motivates me and keeps me busy in my free time.
I spent too much time reading blogs, watching videos on the internet. One day my husband said that you should try blogging. Then I deny him right there.
But started exploring blogging and learned a lot of things that required starting a blog. Almost after six months, I decided to start a blog.
In the meantime, I was active on blogger.com to polish my blogging skills. Finally, Bought a domain and started a blog.
First of all, set up this blog and started working on it, but after one year passed, I didn’t get any results. So I shifted to a self-hosted blog (WordPress) and started working fresh.
After six months, I got some results from it, and I got the motivation to work more to provide valuable content. Gradually this blog grew up and started generating income.
So I have started another blog and then Bloggingtry. Now I am running 3 Blogs that are making a good income.
Consistency and time management is the most important part of blogging. In any case, you should ignore it. You can be a little bit flexible with your routine.
Being a housewife, it isn’t easy to spare much time for extra work. However, I am able to manage 5 to 6 hours daily to work on my blog.
I woke in the morning at 0530, and after completing my daily routine, I prefer doing light walking. After that, I start preparing breakfast for my husband and preparing for the children.
After they went out, I quickly finished the remaining work, and around 10 ‘O’clock, I started working on the blog. Between 9 to 5
I am able to manage 3 hours and in the night 2 to 3 hours after having dinner.
That is my daily routine, but I am trying to manage more and more time for blogging and convert it to full-time.
Motivation is the only thing that pushes you to keep working consistently to achieve your goals. If you want to become a pro blogger, then you must have to keep yourself motivated.
In blogging, you may sometimes feel that you are not getting the expected results or may regret blogging. That is a time when you have to keep yourself balanced and take it as a lesson.
I also gots failure and the results which I never expected. But I never got disappointed because I have made some good friends in the blogging journey.
When I face any problem or feel demotivated, I connect them for solutions. They are always ready to help and give you the right advice.
Not getting results as we expect is the main demotivational movement for all bloggers, including me also.
So, always think that it is starting and set your goal to get success.
Frankly speaking, I hate showing off, which you are not getting. It would be best if you had to be honest and spread things that are good and genuine.
Especially in blogging, you can earn fame by showing off, but these things will not help you in the long term.
Be authentic towards your work and share problem-solving content with your audience. Generously, I wouldn’t say I like those things which are false and not justifying the situation.
Apart from that, I love to learn about blogging SEO and continuously improve the skills that can make a strong base of my goal.
I would always suggest to new bloggers that you should never run behind money initially because blogging is not an overnight millionaire scheme.
I have seen many new bloggers making these mistakes, and because of that habit, they always face failure. I am saying that by thinking only for earning, they always ignore the basics of blogging.
So, it would be best and profitable if you learn, implement then think of making money. Along with that, you should always focus on these points:
When you have achieved this, you will definitely be able to get what you want. Never share wrong information and break the trust of your audience.
Those audiences are your customers, which are going to help you in making money.
Nowadays, starting a blog is very easy. Anyone can start a blog with a few steps. You can also get several blogs and tutorials to get started.
But they are available in various parts and on different platforms. It may also happen that you would not get the full information that you want.
I got many comments and messages about how to start a blog and make money from it. Also, I have seen that many new bloggers quit their blogs because they have chosen the wrong path.
That is why I launched this course to get almost all the information that is crucial to start a blog, grow it and make money from it. This course is completely free as of now.
I am working on it to make it more effective and knowledgeable to be paid in the future.
As well known, getting success and taking your blog to the next level is very difficult, and you have to work hard and smartly to achieve your goal.
Achieving success in blogging depends on various factors that you always consider while starting your blog. So, I have covered all basic and essential points which are compulsory to establish your Profitable blog.
I would recommend you that you must join this course. You will get the detailed information regarding the following:
It is free, so you must join this course.
Well, I have several income sources through the blog, but presently, I am focusing more on affiliate marketing. I use Google AdSense and Media.net ad network on some websites.
Google Adsense also approves Bloggingtry, but I am not using it. I am doing affiliate marketing through this blog. Nowadays taking a Google AdSense approval isn’t easy, because they are very strict with their Policy.
My main income source is Google AdSense, Affiliate Marketing, and Sponsored Post right now. As I said earlier that I am working on a 7 Days Blogging Course, so planning to make it a paid course. I add more value in this.
Google AdSense is the oldest ad network and profitable too. However, it required huge blog traffic to generate more money.
Because AdSense works on ad impressions and CPC. So if you have massive traffic on your blog, then it can be profitable for you.
Otherwise, you have to look for an alternative, or you can go for affiliate marketing. Because affiliate marketing doesn’t require huge traffic, if you have some quality traffic, you can also make money.
Blogging requires a lot of things to succeed, and you can’t ignore it. Every blogger has their own plan and strategy to grow a blog or online business.
If you want to become a pro blogger, you have to be honest and consistent with your blog activity.
However, here are some tips that can have every blogger get better results:
Many things are essential to learn and implement, but here cannot be described because this is a broad topic.
Whatever I do on my blog, all those things come under digital marketing. Digital marketing is the main topic, and SEO comes under it.
Doing digital marketing, you must have deep knowledge/expertise in various fields like SEO, Content Marketing, Ads Management, Link building, Web development, etc.
So if you have a good team to finish all these things, you can try digital marketing. But it would be best for an individual to learn one skill and try one at a time.
SEO is also changing because Google keeps on changing their algorithm time to time. So it is possible that the SEO strategy today will not work tomorrow. So you have to make a solid SEO strategy in 2021.
My top achievement is that I am fully satisfied and happy with my work. I never get disappointed in any situation. However, I feel sad when the result is not as expected, but it keeps happening.
Initially, I don’t focus on brand building and relationship bloggers with the same industry. But believe if you are also ignoring it, then you are making a huge mistake.
It is required because building a brand will spread awareness of your product and content to more people. It is the same as if you make relationships with other bloggers in the same industry that will help you in bad situations.
I also have good blogger friends like Anil Agarwal, Sumit Sao, Amol Chavan, Chyan Charbarti, Vishwajeet Kumar, Mangesh Kumar, Ravi Dixit, Santanu Debnath, Navin Rao, Santosh Gairola, and many more.
They always help me keep motivating myself when I feel bad or face any issue related to blogging.
So it would be best if you also made some good and genuine friends learn more from him.
I have no big goal in 2021; however, I have to increase the authority of my blog, build a brand, and get considerable success in what I am doing.
Apart from that, I plan to launch some premium stuff for bloggers and provide more value to my audience through blogging.
Also creating a plan to provide all solutions related to blogging, SEO, and affiliate marketing so that you all get everything essential to a blogger.
That is all for now in the interview with Archana Tiwari. Hope you learn a lot from Archana.
