Q: Hello, Robin, thanks a lot for being with us today. Let’s start with some introduction! Please Tell Us More About Yourself. How and what inspired you to start your blog?

Robin: It’s really good to be with you today, and surely I will take no time to introduce myself.

Hi, friends my Name is Robin Khokhar. I live in the Holy City Amritsar of Punjab and started my blog on 5th of October 2015. I run a blog named Tricky enough and earn my living through it.

Well, there are many bloggers who inspired me to start my blog. The bloggers like Harsh Aggarwal, Enstine Muki, Neil Patel and Brian Dean are the inspirations for me to start my blog.

Q: What do you think is the one key element to succeeding as an entrepreneur?

Robin: Well according to me the one key elements for succeeding as an entrepreneur is never give up. If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, then you should be focused on your goals instead of caring about other things.    

Q: Have there been any silly mistakes along the way that you have learned from?

Robin: Yes, there are many silly mistakes that I did while doing blogging. And would love to share them all:

  • My first mistake was not doing brainstorming before writing any post.
  • Not using the long tail keywords.
  • And one of the biggest mistakes that I did was, I was not keeping an eye on competitor’s link profiles.
  • But now I have learned from these mistakes and using them to gain more traffic to my blog.

Q: What is your best way to make money blogging and do you think it can work for everybody?

Robin: I am earning my living through blogging. And the ways through which I have made money is through Google AdSense and Affiliate marketing.

And I think that if any blogger works hard and follow the right techniques, there is no doubt that every blogger can earn their living through blogging.

Q: Please share moments that you feel are the best and worst moment you had so far in your blogging journey? And was there a time when feel you should give up blogging?

Robin: Surely there are best and worst moments happened during the blogging with my blog.

The worst think was that I was not able to earn a single penny instead of my hard work for the first three months. But on the fourth month, I got my first earning, but that was not the best moment.

The best moment was that when I was able to get a very good reputation for my blog within just six months. I was able to get a very good Domain Authority in just six months.  

And there were many bloggers who were curious to know that how I increased domain authority within such a short period. So I crafted a post on increasing the domain authority, and I am sure that the post will surely help to increase the Domain Authority.

Q: What is a good strategy once you establish your blog to create a solid foundation for building traffic and working with brands?

Robin: Once I started my blog, my first strategy was to create unique and good content. And then for building traffic, I followed some of the techniques which I will be sharing with you. So, here are the techniques:

  • Guesting Posting
  • Social Media Optimization
  • Question/Answering sites like Quora.com
  • Slide Sharing
  • Sharing Infographics
  • Taking Part in Roundup post
  • Email Outreach
  • And lastly participating in the Interview

Q: Please give us an overview on where you are hosting your blog? What has been your experience with them?

Q: What do you think of dhost.com, any tips for our blog?

    Nice interview. While I agree with most of the answers, I don’t agree about BigRock is a good hosting service provider.. I haven’t tried their service but seen so many bad reviews about them that I preferred staying with US based hosting service providers.
