We will go in-depth so that you can become a professional blogger,
so you to to promise with me, that you will read each and every single line because I know that most of people just read headlines and they won’t get any results,
What I recommend is,
Read like you are reading book, not only read but after reading note it down because if you are doing blogging professionally then you need to implement these techniques.
You will not become professional blogger if you don’t implement the things on your blog.
Now you will have to pass with the 6 chapters in details so take out your copy and pen to note some informational point.
so let’s get started,
here is the Index what you are really going to learn to become a professional blogger.
Chapter 1. Pro Blogger, Pro Host
Do you know that what I’ve seen in every professional blogger,
I’ve notice one thing in every professional blogger that there hosting are premium,
When I was a beginner, I thought that they are mad because there website is also opening and my website is also opening good, so Why they are paying much more than me for Hosting,
I didn’t get the answer for some time,
After learning SEO in detail, I found one major factor that is:
Yes, even google has publicly declare that speed is a big ranking factor.
Now, I understand that why big blogs are using premium hosting, they use because Premium Hostings helps website to load fast.
Now you know what happened after getting this information,
I quickly changed My Hosting and decided to shift on a Premium Hosting.
A2 Hostings is really good company that provide premium hosting with turbo speed, if you want to shift to premium hosting then you can prefer A2 Hosting.
If you don’t have a site then you can go for A2 Hosting and if you have already using any hosting then learn How to Shift to New Host (Without Downtime) by Searching on Google.
so, we have just learned that to do Professional Blogging you need to “SPEED” up your Site.
The blog you are currently reading has itself have average load time of 0.9 second.
Also make sure that your blog Cache is cleared or not.
If not then use a plugin called “Wp Total Cache“, It’s FREE.
With WP Total Cache plugin you can timely clear your website cache and make it faster.
NOTE: If you are not optimizing your website speed the you are hitting AXE on your own Foot.
Now, after getting good hosting you have taken first step to become professional blogger.
This was a small chapter but I want to make it simple for you.
Let’s move to the next chapter that “How to Write Professionally“?
Chapter 2. Write Professionally
This is a Big Question!
“How to Write Professionally on Your Blog”?
So to write professionallly, did you need to be Grammar King?
My Answer is NO,
here is the reason,
No one in this whole world is perfect, even we speak with people in any language, we do so many grammatical mistakes,
so here is the solution.
there is a chrome extension called grammarly which will help you to solve your grammatical mistakes.
Grammarly is the perfect solution to write smoothly without any grammatical mistakes. The Best Part is that it is FREE! .
So the first solution for the Grammatical Mistakes is “GRAMMARLY”.
Now, this topic is not just about writing without grammatical mistakes, it is about everything which will help you to write professionally.
So, you have to develop a skill which can increase your blog conversion,
that skill is about convincing people without convincing them, also Called Selling without Selling.
This Skill is called “Copy Writing“.
Now you may say that what is copy writing?
Some of you might know but some of you may not know about copywriting but the copy writing is a skill of writing in such a way that it can increase conversion of your site.
In Simple Words,
Copy Writing is a trick of writing to get more Sales.
that is why it is one of the most important things for the blogger because A Good Blogger Should be a Good Marketer.
Now I’ve tell you what is copy writing but you might want to know that how should we write to get more sales or affiliates sales?
Affiliate Marketers will become so happy that they are going to read something that is gold mine for them.
So, How Should be Write to Get More Sales or Affiliate Sales?
to get this answer you have to master the copy writing skills but I can tell you in a short that to get more sales, just don’t try to sell them.
If you are trying to sell a Mobile then here is the Good and the Bad Pitch.
Good Pitch: This Mobile Can Make You Life Easier because it is super fast with fast charging so when you have a little time you can charge it. It’s Processor is like Rocket but don’t expect DSLR like camera with this Budget. If you need you can buy. You need investment of 400$ Only.
Bad Pitch: This Mobile is fast like a rocket. Please buy this phone to make your life easier. It has fast charger which can charge your mobile so please buy it. Camera is So Good and the Price is $400.
Now you can see the difference between the 2 pitches, the first one is good pitch and the second one is bad pitch.
You can clearly see that the bad pitch try to force people to buy the mobile while the good pitch has clearly mention that “if you need, you can buy” so give you audience freedom to make their decision.
Don’t force them, just write benefits of the products and let them make the decision.
Do You Know What is Salary of Professional Blogger?

This is all about how you can master the SEO, now let’s move to our next chapter that is “How We Can Utilize Social Platform“
Professional Bloggers always utilize social media for their benefit.
Because Social Media is something that can take you to the next level.
There are so much benefits of social media like,
- Interaction with Fans
- Build your Brand
- Post Some Announcement
let’s break down each of them
1. Intercation with Fans
Nowadays, every social network has a feature called “Status/Story“
and there you can always interact with your fans, ask some questions there.
That is why I like using social media and my favourite one is Instagram and Facebook.
2. Build Your Brand
Social media can increase your brand value and branding will also help you to rank better in google search.
Suppose there is a Brand A with 10,000 Monthly Searches and Brand B with 1,00,000 Monthly Searches
both have a lots of money to spend on SEO,
so who will rank higher?
The Answer is Brand B because the Branding of B is much better than A that is how google decides,
so if you have a good branding than you can just outrank anyone.
3. Post Some Announcements
Suppose you are buys one day and you can’t publish a blog post as per schedule or you want to go live on youtube,
so my question is how will your views will know such a smaller things,
Do you publish post or youtube videos for small event?
Here comes the Social Media Again to help you.
I called Social Media a Tool to engage with your audience and bring back to your blog.
So, by utilizing social platforms you can really give some extra values to your audience and you can also bring them back to read your content.
If you have more social followers you will get more social shares and if you will get more social shares, inderctly your ranking will shoot up.
There are some tool which will help you to get more social shares, read this post on social sharing.
Now I’m assuming that you are leveraging all social media channels wheather it is youtube, facebook, google plus or even pinterest.
Don’t underestimate pinterest, because pinterest itself has power to bring thousands of visitors on your site, previously I’ve used pinterest and the post of pinterest is ranking on the first page.
Never underestimate Instagram as well because now in these days people are spending more time on instagram than any other social platform.
My suggestion is use all social media but here are some sites that are mandatory to use –
- Google Plus
Chapter 5. Say Hello to Email Marketing
Yes, Say Hello to Email Marketing.
First of all try to grab email of every people who comes on your site.
You can use exit poups by hellobar so that your user experience remains good.
You can use top sticky head email optin, you can create a high converting landing pages.
You can try different ways to build list.
Learn How to Grow Your Email List by Watching 3 Minute Video
So you have watched this video, you know some method to build list, after building list you need an automation software.
Professional Bloggers automate everythings, for example they are in london but they are getting affiliate commission because of the automation.
I also recommend to automate everything with Email Marekting Automation Software.
I recommend using Aweber because everyone wheather he/she is big blogger or marketer recommends aweber as the best email automation tool.
Here is what Matt says about Aweber
Yes, through email marketing your first target should be creating the awareness about your product.
So when the users have signup for your newsletter don’t send them product directly, first spread awareness.
Give some free content to them so that they become happy and aware that who you are and what you are doing.
Also try to educate them about yourself as much as you can.
The more they are familiar with you the chances are they will convert later in a customer.
Give them free stuff like PDF, Videos etec.
So, first, spread awareness about you, your brand and about your product as well.
Now after creating awareness let’s move into the level 2 that is interest.
Now it’s time to create interest about your product.
This directly means that create NEED for your product.
You can create need by telling that the strategies that you are using are old, outdated so that they need some new strategy.
If you are selling hosting then you can create need by telling that NO Hosting provides Turbo Speed only this hosting provides Turbo speed, this is just an example to show you.
This is one of the biggest stage and more important stage where you have to create desire in a person mind.
Now how would you create desire?
The Answer is by giving them bonuses or giving 1 time discount offer or something like this.
It may be deal that last for 1 day only.
You have to send emails to create desire in people minds.
This is the final email type you will send which will make people to buy your product or service.
This could be straight email that deals are ending soon.
And one more thing that uses call to action like “Take Action Now” “Reserve Your Slot” “Book Your Slot” “Grab this Deal” “Use this Coupon“
These are the words which are highly convertable and make people to buy your product instantly.
and remember that this must be send in final email otherwise it will not work.
This is how email marketing works in 4 Stage.
You can’t convert direct but if you follow this 4 step proccess then you will rock as a professional blogger.
Chapter 6. Slowly Build Your Team
As your blog is growing, you are getting good amount of money, now it’s time to build up your team.
If you really want to scale your blog to the next level then it is necessary to have a team work.
If you have team then you can complete 1 Week of work in 2 days which will give you huge ROI if you work properly.
here is the question arises that “When You Should Build Your Team“?
My answer is that when you start getting 1000$/month from your blog then you should build your empire.
Believe me it will be fun and you can 10X your income in a month if you know the right way of blogging.
How to Handle the Team?
Professional Blogging Needs Professional Attitude
