How to Become a Successful Blogger (Starting From Scratch)
Blogging has become one of the best sources of passive income.
Work from your home, in your pajamas, without caring about anyone’s orders or wishes, except yours.
That’s the dream, right?
And for the first time in a long time, blogging has become one of the go-to sources for people looking to escape the 9-5 rat race.
If you’re also one of those people who want to finally escape the rat race, then read this article very carefully.
It’s about How you can become a successful blogger in 2020 and beyond.
So, let’s begin.
1. Pick a Niche
Most bloggers try to write about everything. If you’re doing that for just Adsense money, then it’s fine.
But that way, you’ll be leaving a ton of money on the table. Because this information age is on fire and if you don’t leverage it properly then you will be torched to the ground and left in the dust. Blogging is business as a whole and you must be getting all the fruits out of it.
Trust us, the freedom it will provide you will be unparalleled. All kinds of freedom such as freedom of finance, freedom of location, etc.. The best way to go about is to write in a niche.
A niche means marketplace. For example – Fitness, Dating, Food recipes, etc..
Write on one topic.
And if you want to go even deeper then write on a sub-niche. This will help you brand yourself even better.
For example. Don’t pick fitness. Pick an even specific market in fitness. Such as Weight Loss,Keto, Six Pack Abs, etc..
The deeper you’ll go the easier it’ll be to brand yourself and create the blue ocean for yourself.
Meaning: Less competition, more gains.
Especially if you’re a new blogger, that’s where you want to start.
