Hi Friends, Today’s post is going to be amazing for all of You. Because it is on interview with Mangesh Bhardwaj.
As we all know that starting a blog and taking it to a new height is very difficult for everyone who just started it.
Every new blogger always have a doubt regarding traffic, blog ranking and all other important point of blogging.
It is not always possibe to contect some popular blogger every time. So I have started this Interview series for all of you. Where I keep on Inviting som very Popular Blogger at certain interval.
I have already ask them some very essential question, If you have any other question let me know via comment so that I include them into next Interview.
Interview with Mangesh Bhardwaj From BloggingQNA.com
In this series our special guest is Mangesh Kumar Bhardwaj from BloggingQNA. He is verey creative minded person and always ready to help new blogger.
We will konw more about him only. So Let’s get start interview with Mangesh Bhardwaj and see what is his opinion on various question which I asked them.
#1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself when you started your blogging journey?
First of all, Thanks Archana for Inviting me on your amazing Blog.
Hey, Lovely people out there. This is Mangesh Kumar Bhardwaj. I am a 23 years old Full-Time Blogger, Youtuber, and Affiliate Marketer and Founder of BloggingQnA.com.
Apart from this, I am also running some micro-niche blogs in different niches and also have a Facebook Group “ BloggingQNA” and Telegram Channel with more than 5K+ members.
I started blogging in October 2016. At that time I failed many times, started many blogs and micro niche websites.
But all my efforts are going into vain.
After struggling a lot, I learned many things about how blogging works.
I launched my blog BloggingQna and YouTube channel on July 18, 2018, and the rest of all is in front of you guys.
#2. Any start up is fulfilled with challenges, what challenges you have faced and how you handle them?
The main challenges I faced in my initial days are not getting traffic and results from my blog. Like every newbie I am also looking for quick results, and I was also thinking that blogging is a quick rich scheme where you will become rich overnight.
That was my biggest mistake or you can say challenge because there was no one who could guide me right in blogging.
That is also a main reason why I struggled 1.8 years to earn my first dollar.
The harsh truth is “Blogging is not a quick-rich scheme” It takes time and hard work. So, it’s very important to follow the right people who can guide you in the right way.
I hardly suggest every newbie to follow a guy who will teach you the authority of blogging, not the quick money-making schemes.
Please have a look at the below video to avoid all these mistakes that I did in my Initial Days.
#3. Everyone has some inspiration, what is your and why? Which are the blogs you like most and why?
And for Youtube, I was inspired by My Smart Support youtube channel.
Here are some of my favourite blogs:-
- MasterBlogging Of Ankit Singla – Fan of his strategies and Mindset (GuruJi)
- BloggingJoy of Santaun Debnath – Amazing blog with real life experiences (I can say he shares everything after implementing things. Pehle istemal kare phir vishwas kare 😊 😊)
- BloggingLift of Sumit Sao – Detailed and in-depth knowledge of every topic.
- BloggingCosmos of Santosh Bhai – Sharing proven and amazing blogging tips.
- BloggersPassion of Anil Agarwal – For Amazing affiliate marketing and seo tips.
- Simplefactonline by Chayan Bro – Most supportive and amazing blogging buddy I found on the Internet.
There are many more blogs that I read and visit on a regular basis but these are the top I can say.
#4. As we all know, time management is very important for blogging, can you share how you are managing your time and your daily schedule?
Time management is very important to make your days productive for your business. Honestly speaking I am very bad at time management and following the schedule. I tried many times to follow a time table and work accordingly but I am unable to follow that.
As I am doing this full time, that’s why I work when I want, and I take rest when I feel like it. There is no such fixed schedule for my work.
If I talk about my daily schedule. I woke up at around 9 am or 10 am in the morning. After doing some basic day to day stuff, I start my work from 11 am.
Then I work continuously till 2 or 3 pm, then I take a break of almost 1 hours or a small nap to fresh my mind.
Then I start my work again and do it till 5 pm or 6 pm. Then I go to the nearest park to do some outdoor activities. Back to the home somewhere around 8 pm.
Then spend some time with family till 10 pm and then back to work, and go to sleep around 12am or 1 pam.
This is my daily schedule I can say.
#5. While, after and before starting a blog, what we should keep in Mind. Give us some pro tips from your experience?
If I tell you in short, spend most of your time researching your niche, keywords, competitions, monetization methods before starting your blog.
All I can say is do as much deep research you can before starting a new blog. If you spend 70% in research then trust me the rest of your way to make that blog successful will be very very smooth. You will enjoy that journey a lot.
And after starting the blog your main focus should be on producing best content, promoting it on right platforms, taking care of seo, and most important networking within your niche with other fellow bloggers.
Sharing this from personal experience. 70% in research and then rest 30% in making content, promoting your blog and seo.
#6. Blogging means Writing anything on blog is not at all, then how do you find topics and keywords for your new Article?
What I Feel, Blogging is all about solving problems of readers or providing the authentic information to the readers, what they are looking for.
In My case I got most of my blog topics ideas from my Youtube Subscribers and Telegram group.
After that I do research on those topics to find out the perfect keywords to target. To know more in deep how you can find the best blog topics ideas.
Check out my detailed video that I mentioned below.
#7. Some premium wordpress tools make our work easy. Can you tell which one you are using and recommend some to us?
Here are some amazing tools that I use for daily basics.
- Ahref and semrush for keyword research and competitor analysis
- Grammarly and docs for content writing and planning.
- Thrive for building amazing blog posts
- Google Site Kit – All in one plugin
- ConvertKit for Email marketing
- Thrive lead for lead generations
There are many more tools that will make your blogging life easy but these are the tools that I use on a daily basis.
#8. Everyone starts their blog to make money, can you share some proven tips to increase sales and also share some earning proof to motivate us?
A simple and very easy formula to increase sales is to build your audience and build your trust in them. This is my main weapon. I can say that it is giving me a lot of conversion.
My Audience trusts me and Whenever I recommend any good product to them, they are ready to purchase from my link.
PRO TIP:- Don’t recommend any random or bad products, otherwise you will lose trust and that will be your biggest mistake.
For motivation I already shared my many earning proofs in my videos and on my Instagram handles.
Below are some videos where I shared my earnings from different sources.
#9. What are the most essential things needed to implement to succeed in blogging as well as in affiliate marketing?
The 3 most most essential things needed for success in blogging and affiliate marketing are:-
- Patience, consistency in producing quality content with lots of values and hard work
- Promoting the right products and services to the right audience.
- Building your audience around your blog and YouTube channel.
#10. What is the best way to grow the blog and drive organic traffic on the new blog?
Getting organic traffic to a new blog is quite a time taking process. In that case there are some amazing methods that you can get instant website traffic to your blog.
Leverage social media like Quora, Facebook group, Pinterest, twitter for initial traffic. Check out below given video tutorial for more details.
#11. Which is more important (1) creating backlink or (2) creating unique, high quality content and building our Audience/ Email List?
Always go for the 2 second option. Building an audience/email list and producing quality content will help you more in the long run.
Let’s understand with an example.
Your blog post content is not that much good. And you are creating high quality backlinks and with the help of that, your blog post is ranking on top of google.
Now when users visit your blog and see that the content is not good, they will leave instantly and this will bring your site down in ranking. And after that, your backlinks will not gonna help in ranking. No matters how quality backlinks they are.
Always Remember Content is the king and Backlinks are Queen, without King queen is nothing, and without queen king is nothing. Both should go parallel for best results.
#12. What strategy you are employing on your blog to grow and increase sales, would you like to share some of them?
I am trying to provide more and more values for free to my audience. And Sometimes I promote products and that really boosts my sales. Providing more values and selling less is an amazing strategy for generating more sales.
#13. What are the main sources of your income and what is the secret behind your success?
I am earning from various sources my main income sources are AdSense and affiliate marketing.
Here are the rest of revenue sources: –
- Sponsored post and videos
- Providing seo services
- Selling Backlinks
#14. What have you set the goal for 2020 and New things to start in 2021?
My main goal for 2021 is making my blog and myself as a brand. My whole focus currently is on building a strong personal brand.
For that, I will do all the things that are necessary.
#15. Any Guru Tips for Blogging Try Audience to improve their blog performance?
Focus more on building your audience on a single platform initially, don’t try all platforms at one time. Focus 1 platform and build your audience there and then divert that audience on different platforms.
like I am also doing this… I build my audience on YouTube and now I am diverting them to my fb group, telegram group, Instagram and other platforms.
#16. Suggestion for my blog if Any?
