Laptop lifestyle totally I enjoy traveling and while traveling I make money. This is what I love about this business. Initially, I worked hard on my stuff and now I automate them.
What type of networking do you think is better to enhance your traffic to the blog?
Go out at the event and meet a lot of people, tell them about your work and try to learn as much as possible from good people you met at networking events. I increased my traffic and reach by meeting intellectual people at networking events.
So go out make friends and learn from them. You never know you can find your business partner in events.
What do you think is the best service a blogger can provide to his readers?
Give value to your readers and they will come back to you for sure. I have seen this that most of the successful bloggers provide as much as the value they can and in return, they get the trust of their readers.
Once you build trust with your readers you can sell them your trustworthy products. Readership is a game that mostly plays it successfully.
What would be your ideal working environment?
Starbucks I would say, because whenever I want to have fun while work Starbucks is my best place.
How do you manage time to run your blog efficiently?
I decide my work schedules for the next day at night and follow it. I also have a virtual team which I handle via Skype or WhatsApp. We talk and discuss what’s working for our business and what’s not.
Hiring a good team always help you to manage your blog efficiently, many top bloggers have their own team and their work never suffers.
What do you think is the best strategy that worked well for you to get more traffic to your blog?
Again I would say build a loyal relationship with your readers. Some more points I am listing below:
Great website design
Soothing content design
Have images & videos content
Funny GIF’s to make your content look more enjoyable.
Polls and reaction buttons below your posts. A big brand like Buzzfeed use the reaction buttons below post very well.
Have the great call to action buttons like Signup box, social sharing buttons on content & option boxes.
These tactics will bring more traffic to your blog.
10. How do you want to improve yourself in the next year?
By working on training and consulting business. Because I didn’t focus on this business but now I am very serious about my training business so I am working hard on it. I had set up my office in my hometown and soon we gonna start training batches. I have a solid vision for my goals and I am gonna achieve more in 2017.
What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from that?
Greatest failure for me was choosing a wrong business partner, I did business with my best friend and I lost 20000$ in it. I had faced so much loss at that time and I was in a huge depression.
So whenever you are starting a business with friends have legal contracts this will save you from long-term loss. Trust me never ever do business without making T&C clear in beginning.
