If you are new to blogging like me, then one thing I can assure that you going to learn more from this interview.
You will learn about blogging life, how to make a successful blog and how to make it big!
So, with out further delay let’s start the interview with Vishwajeet Kumar
Hello Sandipan, Thanks for inviting me to your Blog. Hello Guys, My Name is Vishwajeet Kumar. I am a full-time Blogger and Digital Marketer. I am also the Founder of My Blog BloggingPond.com. I have started my blogging journey in October 2016. I love to help newbies to become successful Blogger.
Blogging is my passion and I realize it when I was in my final year of Graduation. Before that, I work as a Freelancer and design WordPress Blogs for my clients. Later I dive into Blogging. In my initial days of Blogging, I can generate some sales from affiliate marketing. This motivates me a lot.
So, I decided to choose blogging as a full-time career. Frankly speaking, Blogging is not a hobby nowadays. It is a business model. Blogging has infinite potential to make you financially independent. The situation we currently live in has forced us to do work from home. Blogging is one of the best career options for everyone who wants to build their empire.
I have started my blogging career in October 2016. Before it, I was just surfing the internet and learning coding and designing. I have worked for many clients and help them set up their websites.
Later I came to know about Amit Agarwal founder of Labnol.org. I like his articles. He inspired me a lot. I know that he is a full-time blogger and making good money from it.
So, I have decided to do blogging. I have created 3 failed blogs but it helps me to learn everything about blogging.
Initially, I have invested in a Domain and Hosting. I know that many people think that there are many free platforms available like Blogger, and WordPress.com to start a blog. But, frankly speaking, you cannot control everything on a free platform. So, I decided to start a self-hosted WordPress blog that gives me full control over my blog.
I have purchased a domain and hosting from Namecheap in the beginning. After that my focus was on creating quality content and building backlinks for my blog. As I have said earlier that I have created 3 failed blogs but that helps me to learn many things in blogging. I am still learning something new every day in blogging.
Good Question. You know blogging sometimes becomes so boring and that is what I dislike. However, you can overcome it by doing the traveling and take a break. However, What I like about blogging is that it allows you to connect with like-minded people around the globe.
You connect with a large audience of people through your blog. People love and appreciate your Works. Blogging gives you name, fame, money, and authority.
I think both are important in Blogging. SEO helps a website rank on the first page of SERP. And the common belief is people generally scan and review the first two pages of the SERP. … Compared to online marketing, such as PPC, social media marketing, email marketing program, SEO provides fairly good ROI.
Digital marketing is a vast market with many submarkets and domains. But digital marketing is mainly any advertisement used online through Social Media, Search Engines. While SEO is not marketing it is so your site can be optimized to rank higher in search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo among others.
Affiliate Marketing is one of the best and passive ways to make money online. It is also my primary way to monetize my blog. A Blog is very helpful to promote affiliate offers. However, the Trust factor plays a great role in becoming a successful affiliate marketer.
People won’t buy a product or service from a stranger. To increase your affiliate sales, you need to build trust by providing helpful content.
I also recommend using the products and services first before writing a review about them. It will help you to write genuine and authentic product reviews that help to generate more sales.
Since I work from home so, I usually don’t have an exact time frame for my blogging job. However, I do follow some schedule like:
I write a blog post every 2 to 3 days and published it on my blog. For the rest of the week, I work on link building and other promotional activities.
I am also quite active on Social media sites to build my networking.
I think 3 of them work simultaneously. When you create a blog with good design and content, people will love to visit your blog and read its content. SEO helps you to optimize your blog to rank well in search engines and bring targeted traffic to your blog that brings conversions.
So, being a blogger, we need to work on Content, SEO, and Design to make a successful Blog.
As a blogger, we need to keep close eyes on our competitors. It helps me to utilize and explore new techniques to overcome the competition. I always take a positive approach toward my competitors.
I have learned many things from my competitors.
Well, the list is very huge but I am trying to add some of them who are very close to me:
The biggest mistake I made in my early days is not choosing the right niche and I think this is a big issue for newbie bloggers. A niche can be anything which you are passionate about. When you choose a topic where you have good knowledge and command then you can create quality content. Quality content drives more users and in this way, you can grow your blog. Choosing the right niche is very important. It is the very fundamental step of blogging and newbies should consider it very carefully.
You are doing great with your blog. Just keep focusing on your backlinks. I hope you will soon reach heights in the blogging world. Wish you much success.
2020 is an unprecedented year for all of us. However, My plan for 2021 is to start my own YouTube channel. I am also planning to scale up my blog by adding more problem-solving content.
Hope you read this interview properly. I have learned so much from Mr. Vishwajeet Kumar.
