asutosh jha

Hey friends, Let me formally introduce Ashutosh Jha, who manage TricksRoad, a successful professional blogger and IT consultant from New Delhi.

#Ashutosh, happy to you have in DigitalVani.  Tell us a little about yourself? And how you first got involved with blogging and why?

Ashutosh: Hey Arun, Thanks for having me on your prestigious blog DigitalVani. Your blog is one of the nice blogs in digital marketing niche. Here is my little intro for your blog readers-

I’m Ashutosh Jha, a professional blogger and IT consultant from New Delhi, India who writes about Blogging, Traffic, online marketing and money making ideas. My main blog is TricksRoad.com with few other blogs in other niche.

I was a web developer and online marketer and while searching few marketing tips for my clients I loved the way people share their thoughts and so as a hobby I started blogging. Later it became one of my important parts of life.

#Tell little more about your blog and the topics you cover in your blog.

My main blog TricksRoad is a platformfor any new-comer and for any existing blogger who wants to start blogging to make a living out of it. Here I share all the latest and proven tips of blogging from the scratch which even a person who don’t know anything about blogging can also understand.

At TricksRoad, I cover mainly How to do blogging, How to get Traffic, Promotion of blogs and posts, Making money with blogs and few more topics.

#Many people struggle with coming up with new articles/topics on regular basis.How do you keep coming up with regular content for your blog?

Yes this is the main issue that many bloggers feel specially the newbies. But if you plan writing your content and blog post well in advance, you can avoid such situation. Also it is not necessary to write the blog post daily but to maintain the frequency and the quality is the biggest challenge and if you can maintain this, nobody can stop you.

Well I mainly follow the below methods to keep getting the new blog posts ideas and very soon you’ll find a post on this topic also on my blog-

I keep checking the comment on my blog as well as on others’ blogs and if I find readers asking any particular question which is relevant and unanswered, I write on that topic. Few days back I wrote on ‘Different ways to make money from blog’. This question was asked by one of my reader on Google+ and so I wrote a complete post on that.

Get involved on Q&A sites & Forums. Here you’ll get lots of ideas about the blogging topics.

Also you can ask your readers either using blog or social fan page about the topic on which they want your next posts.

Mainly I’m using the first two as of now.

#What do you find most challenging about blogging?  And what’s your strategy with your blog?

The most challenging thing about blogging that I have observed till now is the traffic. We spend a day or at least hours to write the awesome articles but when we don’t get enough traffic on that post, it hurts. At the start I wrote couple of good articles and didn’t receive the traffic that I was expecting. Then I sat and thought about it and finally came up with the plan and started social promotion in better way. Joined many social sites and started social promotion. Believe me social media provides a great platform for the blogging and you’ll get lots of traffic and exposure with little effort.

#What has been your strategy for creating visibility to yourself and your blog?

This is very interesting and important question J I mainly focus on helping the people who need. It is either through social sites (especially facebook and Google+) or emails/comments. Once you help a person and resolve their issue, automatically you get one good reader. So I mainly focus on this. Apart from this, I am very much engaged on social media, Q&A sites as well in as few forums. These are the platform through which you can get maximum promotion, if you’ll use it in a good way.

#How much attention/time you pay for your blog’s SEO?

SEO is one of the essential things, if you’re targeting organic traffic for your blog. I also pay much effort in doing SEO and always keeping myself involved in experiments with the different methods. For on page SEO, I mainly focus on keywords & their placements and optimized content. While for off page, I try to get backlinks but using white hat method only. I mainly use blog commenting and forums for backlinks.

#The best complements you have ever received from your readers.

Though I have received few emails from readers about my blog, posts and how those helped them, the one I liked the most was from Andhra Pradesh, India. Actually that was bit funny too. It was, “First of all I would like to say a BIG THANKS to you sir for the great help you’re providing through your blog posts. I’ve also started a blog couple of days back and needless to say, you’ve helped me the most through your blog as well as through Hangout. Thanks for all this and I hope I’ll continue receiving such great tips in future as well”. Then a question was asked at the last of the mail, can I know, what’s your age?

#What are your favorite blogs/bloggers you look up and why?

It’s hard to name anyone because I keep reading blogs no matter it’s of Problogger or a newbie. Reading blog posts is one of my favorite pass times. But to name few, I like Darren Rowse’s Problogger, copyblogger, Harleena’s Aha Now, Harsh’s Shoutmeloud and few more.

#Most of the people join blogging for its money earning potential. Can one really make a living by Blogging?

I don’t see any issue with this motive but this should come at the right time. Anyway you’re trying to earn money from the work you did and there is no issue with it. But the main problem with most of the newbie blogger is they want to earn from the very first day. This is practically not possible. Like other business, first you should invest and then think about the profit. Here your investment is the quality blog posts. Don’t blog for money.

Coming to the next part, yes of course this is possible to make an awesome living by blogging. Just you need to plan everything well and no one can stop you to earn good money.

#What’s your take on sponsored guest post or reviews and Google Penalty?

As everything have a pros and cons and the same applies to sponsored posts and reviews too. I don’t think it is bad but need to be limited else your readers will think, you’re writing just for the money. If you’re writing any review, be HONEST. Also recommend something that you are using or you are more likely to use for yourself. This will help you to earn good money as well as help you to bind your readers too.

Google penalty is the big concern these days especially in case of backlinks. Whenever you’re writing any guest post on any other’s blog, convince the admin to use nofollow tag in the links. This will help you to avoid any penalty from Google. Also if you’re getting natural links from your niche, that won’t be a problem.

#What are your future plans? Where do you want to see yourself in next 5 years?

Currently I am concentrating on few blogs that already I am running.In the coming months, you will see few more blogs as well as a service site in TricksRoad network too.

Well in the next 5 years, I want to be a person who can be called as a successful entrepreneur.

#According to you, what are the things which make a blog successful?

There are many factors which are necessary to make a blog successful. The most important are- Good Niche, Quality content, Good Social and promotional plan and self-motivation. If you’re having these, you can be successful in the blogosphere.

#Finally, I would love you to have your message for my readers.

Focus on building a great blog rather than focusing on money. When you have a good blog with quality posts which solve the problem money automatically follows you.

Final words

That was pretty  awesome. Thanks Ashutosh for your time here.

And you guyz, hope you enjoyed the interview. If you have any question then you are free to ask in the comment section to make this interview more interactive.

Facebook Drops Bing form its New Search Update

Facebook is not well known for offering users enhanced search experience. But it looks like the social network is trying to venture into that uncharted avenue. That’s right! The Palo Alto firm is ditching Microsoft’s Bing. Bing’s search results won’t be shown on Facebook anymore.

The news came after Facebook’s search update for this week. It was first reported by Reuters and then confirmed by Facebook. Reuters got the tip from an insider. A new search update has been released by Facebook last Monday, which makes it easy for users to search and find previous posts.

Even though the report on Reuters relates the new search feature to Facebook’s efforts to carve out a niche in the internet searching domain, whose importance is steadily growing, Facebook is not giving web search any thought at this moment. The new update is only to aid users in finding their previous posts.

Facebook has been promising users to make searching a completely easy and hassle-free experience for them. Jettisoning Bing is a step toward fulfillment of this promise because all through, Facebook search has been yielding results that lead to other sites. But now this is going to change. Facebook’s spokesperson said “We’re not currently showing web search results in Facebook Search because we’re focused on helping people find what’s been shared with them on Facebook.”

In an interview with a news outlet, Tom Stocky saidwhat we found is that on Facebook people care as much if not more about who is posting the content as they do about what the actual content is.” The new search feature will let users find only those posts that are from themselves, from those whom they follow or have earlier been shared with them.

The move won’t heat up the working relationship between Microsoft and Facebook. The spokesperson of Facebook said “We continue to have a great partnership with Microsoft in lots of different areas.”

Earlier, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg regarded search as one of the key areas for the company to focus. The current move reflects what Zuckerberg earlier said. It could be the precursor to the future moves that’ll help Facebook users with searching on the web.

3 Most Important Tips for Digital Marketing

Nowadays, most of digital marketing consultancy is in regards to business data, objectives and performance. Technology and processes also play a big role, proving to be a marked difference for the company offering consultancy service for digital marketing.

Consulting business is not easy one because there are some marketing problems which are not clearly defined. A few businesses also require linear solutions. The market shareholders always have their differences in terms of business decision. Digital marketing is, without any doubt, fast paced and growing complexity as to its solutions require the marketing consultants to have more than the ability to adopt the best practices, financial expertise and skill to assess and optimize data.

DIGITAL-MARKETING

More than often, soft skill of consultancy is omitted or its inconsistent representation causes misinterpretation, wrong insight and unfulfilled expectations.

Why such omission or misinterpretation? This is because; human beings are involved to deal with those works. Beyond data and processing software, it requires a fine blend of skills to rightly evaluate a situation, assess opportunities and facilitate implementation. With digital marketing showing more human-like character, marketers should also bring needful changes in their approach.

Without implementation, even the best advice for digital marketing will earn your business no good.

Be focused on goals: Dynamically optimized digital marketing can cause strategies to prove inefficient over time. Whatever strategic directive is decided, there must be a clear view as to expectation as well as purpose. Having a clear understanding of overall business objective and how one can contribute towards realizing the goal are the prime criteria throughout an effective engagement. Sometimes it happens that the marketers start questioning themselves, “Why are we going that way? You can bet, such strategy is less likely to work. Marketing actions will not always produce direct effect but the marketers are always held responsible nonetheless.

Learn differences between strategy & tactics: It is unfortunate that most of the marketing consultants have no idea about the differences. In simplest term, strategy refers to plan for action whereas a tactic refers to a specific action as a part of strategy implementation. Understanding the differences makes it sure that all directives are based on clear assessment of ‘why’ and will contribute more towards successful engagements.

Listening & Understanding: This is one of the most significant skills though neglected often. The marketers should have the ability to learn the present situation and assess the goals and troubles involved in it. They should also posses the ability to feel the pulse of both the brand owners as well as consumers.

A Comprehensive List of Do’s and Don’ts That Bloggers Should Keep in Mind

So your dream is to become a celebrity in the blogosphere?

Then you better be knowing all the ‘Do’s’ and ‘Don’ts’ for blogging.

Not knowing them means you are just a pretentious know-it-all type geek who is only good at complaining why his blog fails to get more than 1000 visitors every month.

But how would you know which are the do’s and don’ts for blogging? Of course you could round up all the blogging related info after doing an intensive web search. But isn’t that troublesome?

It sure is. We know that, and that’s why we’re here to make things simple for you. In this article, we’ll make lists of blogging do’s and don’ts. Let’s start with the ‘Do’s’. 

Do sound research

Half knowledge is worse than ignorance. So before you make a claim to your readers or suggest anything to them, make absolutely sure your claim is valid or your suggestion is an authentic one.

Be master of some trades

The myth is quite prevalent that a blogger is a jack of all trades and master of none. On the contrary, you need to be a master of some trades. Blogging is a niche based area. Successful bloggers know how to carve out a niche in their area of blogging. Hence be a master in your niche area of blogging

Publish as much as you could

An action shouldn’t be judged by its result alone. Most bloggers make this mistake. They publish only their best posts. However, your readers want you to write as much for them as you could. Besides, having more content will keep your site ahead in the race for search engine promotion.

Create attractive layout

Blogging is not only about text-based content. Design and graphic play key roles too. An attractive layout may do wonder for your blog. It could heighten the appeal of the blog and facilitate reader engagement. That’s precisely what you want, don’t you?

Brevity matters

There’s a difference between a blog and an article. Many wannabe bloggers don’t understand this difference. Unlike an article, a blog should have a personalized undertone. At the same time, a blog post should be brief. Brevity keeps users focused. Long posts often make them distracted. That said, if the topic of the blog requires detailed analysis or if it’s a tutorial, the blogger should feel free to write at length.

Blogging ‘Don’ts’ are as important (If not more) as blogging ‘Do’s’. There are few things that every blogger should avoid. Those things are classified under blogging ‘Don’ts’. The list of blogging ‘Don’ts’ includes the following;

Beating around the bush

Straightforwardness is a virtue. Your readers want you to be straightforward. So don’t beat around you the bush, introduce whatever you want to discuss without any ado and discuss that in full details. This would make your blog informative and that in turn pull more visitors.

Avoid long sentences

Long sentences distract readers. Readers start out and feel lost in the middle. Then they again go back to the beginning and by the time they reach to the end, they feel tired. This way they read the sentence but fail to comprehend its meaning. Short sentences on the other hand help users grasp the meaning smoothly.

Too much information

Information is good, but information overload is not good. There’s a fine line difference between these two. As long as you are putting information that are pertinent to the motif of the blog or to elaborate the sub-motifs, it’s fine. But the moment you start staffing the blog with unnecessary information, which presumably the reader won’t be able to remember for long, it’s information overload and would hurt your blog.

Don’t make typos

Typos leave a fairly bad impression about you in your reader’s mind. So be extra careful while typing. Bloggers automatically assume readers will focus on the overall content and won’t mind one or two typos. That’s not true. Readers want the blogger to be more knowledgeable than them. Typos portray the author negatively.

Bearing in mind the ‘Do’s’ and ‘Don’ts’ discussed above will help you steer clear your blog posts from all sorts of errors and ambiguousness. So keep them in mind next time you blog.
