Yet the probability is that it will take some time and your profits are directly dependent on the amount of targeted traffic you attract to your site or blog.

Therefore, you will need to master your blogging techniques or methods and attract traffic to your blog.

So here, I am sharing these 10 best blogging tips for beginners and I guarantee that if you follow these tips, you will probably become a great blogger.

Choose a Niche That is Not Saturated


Is this important?

So many times people get into a niche that is so competitive that it’s nearly impossible to compete. If your new site is in an overly competitive field then your blog will be doomed to fail.

So, be smart and do some research so that you can tap into a niche that is still worthy of your time, hard work and effort.

I use a great tool that helped me a lot that called Micro Niche Finder.

Know Your Target Market

In other words, make sure that you know exactly whom you are attracting.

You have to sell products that relate to your visitors and I am sure that you have already heard before that you can’t sell meat to a vegetarian.

Well! Believe it or not, that is exactly what happens to so many people who are blogging without any success because of choosing a wrong niche.

So, match your products and visitors and you will be a winner and also be patient, this may take a little tweaking.

Build Your List

This is another a very important tip. I have learned from many marketers that list building is the number one priority for any business to be successful online.

A list can double and sometimes triple your profits simply because of one reason and that is:

People will buy from you when they are ready, and not when you are ready.

So, build a list and communicate your offer with them again and again and you will see the power of list building.

Make sure that list building isn’t the only priority of your business though but making money is.

Build a Relationship With Your List

Now, this could be a tricky one, but don’t get discouraged.

See, many people think that building a relationship with your list means catering to their every need and spending time helping each and every person on your list.

No! Building a relationship with your list is sharing new information about your products and services and discussing your problems and solutions of the niche you are marketing.

I am not suggesting, not to answer questions of your customers, but am simply advising you to be careful and that you should not spend too much time working for free.

Because your job is to share current and new information and the point of where they can purchase or learn more about your products and services.

The biggest problem in the internet marketing industry is that people are focused on making money but saving the world.

You are in a business to make money and to serve your customers by offering them solutions to their problems.

Time Management

The biggest problem with time management is distractions.

Your blogging revolves around being online and writing contents, making videos, link building, social media marketing and so on.

Blogging Tips for Beginners

Well! Those tasks can be very time to consume, full of distractions and will rob off your time and potential profits.

Therefore, making a plan of action or a business plan and sticking to it is the only way to succeed in online marketing or you will find yourself spending hours upon hours in front of your computer getting caught up and achieving nothing.

And when you will look at your business after a year, you will wonder where did the time go and how come you are not as far today as you could have been and don’t make that mistake.

So, have a definitive action plan and you should treat your business as a job until it becomes a habit to do those tasks and gives you money.

Choose a Platform You Can Learn Easily

Don’t choose a popular platform just because it is popular.

Best Blogging Tips

If you can’t figure out how to use it in your blog will be over before it starts. Shop around and find a blogging program that is easy to use and has options for technical in case you get stuck.

If you don’t have any programming knowledge than you can prefer to use the universal free blogging platform Blogger BlogSpot. Or,

If you want to go a little higher than you can choose HostGator or WordPress platforms for starting your blog.

Select a Format/Template That Doesn’t Require a Lot of Technical Changes or Adjustments

Choose a blog template that does not need a lot of changes.

If you find the one that you really like it that you don’t even need to make any changes then go for it.

But, stay away from templates that need many changes or else you will find yourself with a blog that isn’t functioning after a few wrong keystrokes.

Backup Your Blog

Backing up your blog is something that you should do often. I keep backup of my blog every time whenever I make a new post or make changes to my blog or on weekends.

Best Blogging Tips

So that if something happens with the server or you accidentally delete your own blog and it’s been known to happen.

You won’t have to spend days or weeks trying to start a new one or put the old one back together or write letters to your service providers.

So, it is a good practice if not daily, you should keep a backup of your blog on weekends.

Write Posts on Topics Relevant to Your Business or Niche

If you are the owner of a widget shop, you don’t need to write every single post about widgets only.

However, you should write about topics about the business of making widgets.

You can also write about bookkeeping for widget companies, how to use widgets, the types of challenges currently facing widget companies and other related topics.

Relevance if important for getting targeted search engine traffic to visit your blog and last:

Include Links to Other Sites and Affiliate Products Only if They’re Relevant to Your Blog Topic

Relevancy is important for maintaining the credibility of your business.

A bookkeeping blog with links to tax information and a book called bookkeeping for beginners for sales is good.

Blogging Tips

A bookkeeping blog with links to gardening websites and a video on beekeeping for sale is not.

Keep your blog relevant to your readers and they will be more likely to visit again.


Remember! A blog is a great way to make money online but it takes a great amount of discipline, patient and continuous engagement until your blog reaches the position you desired.

Your potential is great if you can put on the blinders and work diligently for at least 90 days to build a decent momentum and really see the fruits of your hard labor later.

Three months is not a long time and it’s worth the effort and better than some of the people wasting years and trying to figure out how to make money online and I am sure for these 10 tips you will really thank me.
