If you’re thinking about starting blogging in 2020, or how you can get better at blogging in 2020, then you’re certainly not alone.
It’s good to reflect on the positives and negatives in the beginning or at the end of the year.
As I said, you aren’t alone who is thinking about blogging in 2020. I want to share what I have been planning on doing in 2020. The essence of blogging is to share what you learned and change lives with your content.
Speaking of sharing stuff, have you ever noticed that if the blogger doesn’t share value in a blog post, it doesn’t attract readers at all? I have been noticing this for the past few years.
It doesn’t matter how good you’re at finding keywords to target. If you aren’t delivering the value in the content, for what it’s worth, I don’t think such content makes any difference in readers’ lives.
I’m passionately preparing for blogging in 2020. Perhaps, when you stick to something you love, you learn new things along the way and polish your craft as well. Not only does it increase your chances for success, but it also gives you satisfaction.
Without any further ado, let me get to the point. So here are five things that I’ll do in my blogging in 2020:
1. Targeting Low-competition Niches
Most of the bloggers in “blogging tips” niche target blogging starters and try to sell website hosting and WordPress themes. You might have seen bloggers offering PDF freebies as in opt-in bribes to build email lists and engage the target audience.
So I won’t be targeting those niches because the competition would be fierce. Instead, I’d look out for the low-competition niches to target through my blogging. For instance, if I design ebook covers, I might offer book cover designing to non-fiction book writers only. It will make me focus on a specific low-competition niche.
2. Buying and Using Bloggers’ Products/Services
Relationships are key to blogging success, and there is no better way to build relationships than supporting your fellow bloggers. One of the things I have in mind is buying and using bloggers’ products. I have many blogger friends who write ebooks, develop WordPress plugins, sell courses and offer blogging services. So, off the top of my head, I could name a few:
–Ryan Biddulph: ebooks and online courses
–Henneke Duistermaat: ebooks and online courses
–Donna Merrill: Private coaching (on Blogging)
–Ali Luke: Online courses
–Lisa Sicard: Blog Management Services
–Moss Clement: Content Writing
You can check them out and try their products and services if you want to. I’ll be sharing more products and services of other pro-bloggers in the future.
3. Reviewing the Best Blogging Tools
One of the things on my checklist is reviewing the best blogging tools in 2020. I have had a chance to try out BackupBuddy and iThemes Security Pro in 2019, which were fantastic. Not only did they make my site security better, but they also helped in taking automatic backups.
A vital lesson about blogging success I learned is that paid blogging tools help you grow. Whether they’re keyword tools, site security plugins, or other software subscriptions. When we buy a tool or subscription to improve our blogging, it does seem expensive at times, but such investments fuel your blogging career growth.
So I’m very excited to test out new products and share my experience through writing reviews along the way.
4. Running Facebook Ads
Facebook ad is a popular marketing tool for generating leads, attracting visitors, and building brand positioning. I have a plan for running Facebook ads more often in 2020. Not only would I be promoting my articles through Facebook ads, but I’d also be making video ads to engage and attract the audience.
You might think that I’m an expert at running Facebook ads, let me clarify: I’m a rookie. I bought a course website subscription just to learn new skills and hone in on my skills. One of the skills I want to learn is how to run Facebook ads. So Skillshare is my go-to platform for learning new skills through online courses.
5. Adding Video Content to the Blog
I have been thinking about video content for quite some time, but couldn’t do it at scale. What I want to do is start uploading videos to my Facebook page and embed them into the blog. Not only will I be able to put out more content, but I could also improve my blog growth.
I’ve talked about video editing softwares in the past, so you might already know that I create video content in my native language Urdu on YouTube. All I need to do is come up with a plan to make short and precise (English) videos for the blog.
What would you do for Blogging in 2020?
I’m sure some of you would be very excited about blogging in 2020, but a few might not be very much interested in blogging as a career. One of the reasons why people get fed up with blogging is that they don’t earn a dime with blogging.
Let me tell you why this happens: they don’t make money from blogging because they join in just to make money.
If making money is your ultimate goal, then you become vulnerable, meaning, you could quit at some point. On the contrary, when you genuinely love doing something, you thrive no matter how difficult the path looks like.
I’m hoping that this blog post would give you a perspective on blogging success. I’ve shared what I’m going to do for my blogging career in 2020. Now let’s turn the table.
Tell me, what are your big plans for blogging in 2020?
