So are you ready to know more about Ankit Singla and learn from him? Without further ado, here goes our Q&A. Let’s get started!
Q: Hello Ankit, thanks a lot for being with us today. Let’s do some introduction for a start. Can you please briefly introduce yourself and your blog BloggerTipsTricks.com?
Ankit: Hi I am Ankit, an entrepreneur, and a professional blogger. I write about blogging tips and aim towards helping other bloggers gain search results and build an online business.
Q: What’s the one thing that excites you the most to work as a full-time blogger?
Ankit: My love for what I do.
Being honest, no one can end up doing something they don’t love. To achieve my goals, work full-time on my blog I indulge myself in my passion.
I have this thing for SEO and marketing. And I continually work towards making these things easier for my readers. This is the reason that keeps me up at night.
Q: How much time do you spend blogging on a typical day?
Ankit: I typically spend 5-6 hours a day blogging. But this is no tight schedule for me. Somedays I work to 4 am other days I enjoy my time with my family.
Q: When you’re new to blogging, how did you bring traffic to your sites? What were the mistakes you made as a newbie? Have you ever feel like quitting it?
Ankit: When I was new to blogging, I was pretty clear regarding blogging. For traffic, I always insist on writing for search engines. If you write a quality article, one that solves almost every aspect of your readers’ queries, you have won half the war.
For another half would be promoting your content and so that it reaches the ones that are looking forward to the post. You can follow this guide to learn how to attract more search traffic if you have a new blog.
As for the mistakes, I am lucky I did not make major mistakes. Whatever I made, taught me to be a better blogger. However, you could read this post on blogging mistakes that I strongly recommend everyone to avoid.
I have never felt like quitting it. As mentioned above, I love what I do.
Q: What is your take on monetizing a blog? Is blogging a lucrative profession according to you?
Ankit: To be honest, one cannot just devote full time to a venture unless that earns him a livelihood. Blog monetization is something I recommend everyone to do. When you get something in return (money in this case), you will be more responsible for implementing quality in it.
But, this has to be done properly and scaled according to your blogging stage. If you are a newbie, you should rather strive towards building a trusted brand of yourself. And when you are ready, you just have to monetize it. Here are many ways one can use to monetize his blog.
Q: What is the number one mistake you see people make with their website content?
Ankit: I think the number one thing most people mess up with is writing articles motivated by revenue. There is no harm writing anything driven by revenue, but you must not forget to add value to it.
When you are writing an article aimed at selling a product, affiliate sales or service, make sure you provide everything your reader should know about the product.
Don’t forget to write the drawbacks (if any) you found during the review; this will not only help build trust but also will empower your readers to take a decision whether the product deserves a buy.
Q: Where Is Bloggertipstricks.Com Hosted At This Time And How Long You Have Been With The Host? Please Share Your Experience With Them.
Ankit: My blog is hosted on Traffic Planet Hosting and I have been using this web host from almost a year. Their servers are super fast and their customer support is very quick to assist their customers. I recommend them to everyone.
Q: Finally, What advice will you give to other budding bloggers?
Ankit: My advice to all budding bloggers is, if you are into blogging, or online marketing or anything, give your 100% to it. There will be times when you will feel worn out, but after that, there is a success.
Cool! Thanks Again For Your Time.
