HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY RUN A WORDPRESS BLOG IN 2019
Just as we all know, WordPress has become almost everyone’s wish of blogging platform but due to some financial problems some cannot manage their WordPress blog effectively. Some even go for a free hosting website which later results in the downfall of their blog. In this Article I’ll be showing you how to manage a WordPress blog effectively. By following the steps below
DETERMINATION IS THE KEY
Well, In every business that you want to venture in you must be determined to yield good results out of it. Same goes to blogging. You can’t just wake up one day saying that you want to blog possibly cos of the money. The determination and passion for it must be present. Without the determination, you’ll eventually be fed up and will give up on blogging because it is not an easy task. The successful bloggers today didn’t just wake up and start making money through blogging, they are so determined. And determination is the main key to success.
Have it in your mind that you want to be a blogger and work towards it.
HAVE A START UP FEE
This is the main reason some people left blogging. Money! As we all know it’s not easy to get but there are some cheap webhosting and domain resellers in Nigeria that are here to stay. Your budget will be decreased and makes it easier for you. Websites like DOMAIN KING , GARANNTOR , ABOLLYHOST etc. Provides domain name and website hosting at a lesser price unlike foreign hosts whose prices can give you a shock.
Using Garanntor as a case study, you can be a website owner with just ₦5000
Garanntor provides One Year Shared hosting at the rate of ₦1500 and One Year .com domain at the rate of ₦3499 That results to ₦4999 You still have ₦1 balance 😁😁😁. So with that you can get your website.
BE READY FOR RECURRING CHARGES.
Yes, Also be ready for recurring payment. Because you’ll be paying the same ₦5000 or more on a yearly basis to renew your website. It’s okay by me. It’s something you can contribute within 6 months based on your pocket size o. You should be ready for it anytime, so that your blog won’t have to go on a downtime.
CHOOSE A UNIQUE NICHE AND SET UP YOUR BLOG
According To Kennedy Prosper and so many other bloggers, The best way to make money with your blog is Creating your own Niche. Yeah, the same idea goes to me also, There are many blogging niches which has become over crowded like Entertainment Niche, News Niche, Making Money Online Niche, Technology Niche etc. So. By starting a blog it’ll be preferable to stay away from crowded niches and choose yours.
HOW DO I CHOSE MY NICHE???
Well most people’s niche are based on their hobbies. You can also think of your hobby and start writing on it. E.g If your hobby is Exercise You can start writing on how to keep fit by exercising and making videos of it also. By doing this, you’ll be writing unique articles and not plagiarizing in any way.
AVOID COPY AND PASTE
Copy and paste is a very bad blogging act. Whereby bloggers go to other websites, copy and then paste the post on their blogs. Some copy and paste straight while some do some editing. I consider both as bad acts. Copy and paste is a bad act and can also hinder your Adsense account approval when you apply because it is against the Google policies.
HOW DO I WRITE WITHOUT COPYING AND PASTING??
Well it’s a very simple thing writing articles without copying other people’s work. What I do personally is that
I RESEARCH :- I browse and surf the internet read from blog to blog, website to website, based on the new post I want to write about. Then having digested what I read online I pick my phone and pour all have read from like 10 websites combining them in my own understanding and forming a unique articles on it.
I also do watch videos on YouTube about my new post and learn how it is done. Then I add to my points.
Mind you, writing articles doesn’t mean you should write article of 200 Words and publishing. Try to at least write articles of 700 or more words.
APPLY FOR GOOGLE ADSENSE OR OTHER ADS
You can also apply for Google Adsense account to monetize your blog. But Adsense doesnt just approve. They have very strict policies in which one of them is No copy and paste. Also before applying you should have at least 10 blog posts with Minimum of at least 700 words each.
You also have to create some pages like
About Us Page
And contact us page. Then you can try and see if you’ll be approved. Well if you aren’t approved we still have many other Advertising networks like
PropellerAds. mgid. Taboola, Bidvertiser etc.
So if Adsense disapprove you, you can give other Ads Networks a trial also.
ADVERTISE YOUR BLOG
You should also be advertising your blog to people to be visiting it Maybe on social medias like facebook, twitter, etc.
Also you should be posting on Other websites or forums and leaving a link to your site (Backlink) It helps in your blog appearance on Google.
