Creating a Blog That’s Built To Sell – What You Need to Know

The big dream for many bloggers is to someday cash out and get that illustrious “sunset money”.

Here’s the thing though:

You won’t have much luck selling your blog if the buyer can’t see themselves able to run the show. So it’s up to you to make sure that they can slide right in.

This means we need to be mindful of how we setup our business from day 1.

The key word in there is “business”. So we really need to start thinking of our blogs in this way.

After selling many sites with our company, Human Proof Designs, it’s been crucial to understand the following guidelines if you want to create a sellable blog.

1) Choose a Topic That’s Easily Outsourced

Now this first point might seem controversial and may even come across like we don’t care about the target audience.

But it’s completely the opposite. This is actually careful consideration for your audience and also for your business.

Blogs that are attractive to investors are usually within a topic that’s easy to find writers for.

Managing writers is no walk in the park and sometimes your best writers might go “missing”.

As publishers and investors, you don’t want to set yourself up for some pain because hiring isn’t particularly fun for anyone and costs more money.

If you’re a long-time blogger and everything is personal to the topics in your life, it’s simply not going to be something you can transfer to a buyer.

While you can outsource a lot of content to sites like Contentmart, the idea to keep in mind is automation and systemization.

There are content creation tools that can help you build a turnkey operation that the new owner can easily take over.

This also means that you’d want to avoid using your name as the brand/domain name.

2) Publish Content That’s Not Only Attributed To a Single Person

Often times, there’s nothing more attractive to a buyer than a site with multiple contributors.

It means there’s most likely a schedule set in place and if one writer leaves, then the slack can be picked up by the rest of the team.

Some other solutions to this issue might be to create a persona or pen name and have different writers contributing as that persona.

All in all, we want something that is stable and a diverse writing team makes it easier for that to happen.

If you’d like to test this out, we have multiple writers working on our own properties and those of our clients.

3) Keep Track of Your Finances From The Beginning

When a buyer is interested in your site, you’ll need to hand over your financials too.

Being a good business person requires being fiscally responsible too.

If you have no writing costs currently because you’re doing all of that yourself, you still have hosting costs, domain registrations, etc to be mindful of recording.

Most buyers want to see 2 years of financials, but honestly, there are plenty of sites with less history that still get purchased.

The majority of the time, an investor may make a decision based on 1 year worth of history.

The important thing is that you’re keeping track of them so why not do that from day one.

4) Build a List!

“The money’s in the list!”

Yup, I’ve just repeated one of the most overused sayings in the internet marketing world.

However, it’s true… So that’s why people say it.

An email list is known as your owned media.

Having an email list of people that are interested in one common topic is extremely valuable.

Not only can you send them emails (with sponsorships even), but you can upload the list into Facebook’s ad platform and create a custom audiences or look-a-like audiences.

If you continue to provide value to your list plus your open plus click-through rates are very high, that in itself is a very high margin business too.

Just look at HARO’s business model.

5) Have Standard Operating Processes (SOPs)

If you’ve ever listened to any of the Tropical MBA podcast episodes, they always mention SOPs because it was very important throughout their business but also when they sold it.

There isn’t much that’s more useful to a business owner than plug and play processes.

Now they can hire nearly anyone and with a reasonable amount of confidence know that the job will get done correctly because of these processes.

Not only is it beneficial to website buyers in the future, but it’ll make your life as the owner easier starting today.

We’ve built tons of these internal documents for our team. Currently we’re at 152 freelancers that are working on our own sites and those of our clients.

6) Create More Than 1 Significant Traffic Source

Our methodology, that we call “the human proof method”, is based mostly on gaining site visitors through organic Google traffic.

We typically use a handful of free and paid SEO tools, which can unlock great results in that arena.

While this our usual strategy, we know and understand that secondary properties can be extremely valuable in the sale of a site too.

These are things like Youtube channels, Facebook groups, Pinterest accounts, etc.

High organic traffic is very attractive to buyers but so is diversification.

If you can work on carving out a secondary traffic source that brings 20% or more of your total traffic, then you’ll be setting yourself up nicely for an attractive sale.

7) Monetize Through Multiple Income Streams

Just like traffic diversification, it helps to earn income from multiple sources too.

In might even be more important than the traffic.

For example, a buyer might notice that all of your traffic comes from Pinterest with only a minimal amount coming from organic.

If the price is right then this is considered a “good deal” for them.

Because the investor would see a clear way to increase the value of the property immediately by implementing an organic strategy.

On the other hand:

You as the site owner currently want to command the highest multiple.

And usually what creates a higher multiple are things like income diversification.

Even moving away from Adsense and into other ad networks can significantly increase your revenue with just some code (see our RPM’s in this picture):

In additional to affiliate commissions and advertisement revenue, having your own product is also highly valuable.

Even an ebook that’s composed of your best content around a certain problem is something people will pay for and it’s a high margin digital product.

Let’s go over a real life scenario:

One of our investors has a site in the health niche. Much of that content is information and helps people in “how to” guides…

But a lot of it is through our reviews of physical products. Which we generally link to Amazon for.

Now the unique situation here is that the product we recommend the most, just happens to be owned by our investor as well.

This means that we can a commission from Amazon when someone makes a purchase through our link, but also get a double-whammy because the product they bought is also ours.

Awesome, right?

How To Setup Your Blog This Way

I’m guessing that you might be in one of two tracks:

You’ve got a personal blog that is hard to transition. Your blog is similar to what we talked to earlier, but missing a few key aspects.

If you’re in the second track and your site is almost too focused in a very narrow niche, here’s some advice for you.

For those in the first track, we could help you out with our early bird niche site emails.

These emails come every 2 weeks and contain a list of new niches that we’ve pre-researched from an SEO perspective and would consider worth paying attention to.

For more information, head over to our early bird page.

If you have any other questions, let’s start a conversation in the comments!


This article was written by Kelvin Mah, who is head of growth and content at Human Proof Designs (HPD), the #1 source for affiliate marketers to learn, grow, and push their sites even further. When Kelvin isn’t executing on the online tactics necessary to grow HPD, he’s hanging out with his dog and growing his own portfolio of sites.

Are Schedules and Deadlines a Help or a Hindrance?

Are schedules and deadlines a help or a hindrance?

Are schedules and deadlines a help or a hindrance?

This post is based on episode 249 of the ProBlogger podcast.

This week’s post is all about schedules and deadlines. Are they a good thing, or can they hold you back?

We’ve talked a lot about deadlines and schedules over the years, and how they can help you publish content regularly. They can not only help you get into the flow of writing content, but also let your readers know when to expect new content on your blog.

But what if your schedule becomes a hindrance rather than a help? What if the pressure of constant deadlines starts having an adverse effect on your blogging?

There are no rules about how often you should post new content on your blog. But as someone who’s been blogging for a long time, I thought I’d share what I’ve learned over the years.

Choose quality over quantity

The first thing I want to say is that quality is more important than quantity. Your regular readers won’t share your posts if they aren’t any good. And so pumping out content before it’s ready just to meet your deadline could hurt the potential growth of your blog (not to mention your brand).

But quantity is still important, particularly if you want to monetize your blog. As I’ve said many times, every piece of content you publish is a doorway into your blog. The more content you produce, the more doorways you have. And each doorway is a potential source of traffic from search engines, social media, and links from other blogs. You can still get traffic without having much content, but you are limiting your chances significantly.

Which can be a problem if you equate ‘quality’ with ‘perfectionism’.

‘Quality’ doesn’t mean ‘perfect’

I remember talking to a blogger who felt that everything they wanted to say on their blog had already been said, either by them or someone else. And so they began second-guessing everything they wrote. “Is it good enough? Will it stand out from what other people are saying? Will it stand out from what I’ve already said before?”

To the point where they weren’t producing any content.

As you can imagine, this limited the chances of their posts being found by search engines, social media shares, links from other blogs, and so on.

Which, in terms of building traffic, isn’t a great strategy.

Yes, quality trumps quantity. But if you don’t produce any content then you’re really limiting yourself, particularly if you’re using a monetization model that relies heavily on traffic such as AdSense.

Schedules and deadlines

So it would seem that schedules and deadlines can help (by pushing you to post regularly) and hinder (by pushing you to post content before it’s ready). But not having them can also help (by giving you time to create quality content) and hinder (by letting you get away with not publishing anything).

So which one is it? Should you use them or not?

That depends on who you are and what stage you’re at with your blogging.

Some people find deadlines incredibly motivating. A friend of mine is a journalist, and she admits that if it wasn’t for her editor’s deadlines she wouldn’t have won some of the awards she’s received for her work.

Her editor gave her a really hard deadline for one piece, and made it clear there would be consequences if she didn’t meet it. That looming deadline gave her a rush of adrenaline and panic that sparked her creative engine. And the piece she wrote ended up winning a national award.

As much as she doesn’t like deadlines, she knows they’re good for her and help her produce her best work. As Thomas Carlyle would say, “No pressure, no diamonds.”

But deadlines don’t have that effect on everyone. For some people it just clouds their mind and stifles their creativity. Here’s what George R.R. Martin, who wrote Game of Thrones, said about deadlines:

“I’ve never been good with deadlines. My early novels, I wrote by myself. No one knew I was writing a novel; I didn’t even have a contract.”

Not having a deadline gave him a sense of freedom where he could just create. Which probably explains why he struggled to write the latest volume of Game of Thrones when he did have a deadline.

In extreme cases, deadlines can create so much panic in a person that they effectively become paralyzed.

If any of this sounds like you, then creating an editorial calendar might not be a good idea.

So how do you feel about schedules and deadlines? Do they keep you moving, or send you into a tailspin?

A double-edged sword

Or perhaps you’re like me and a lot of other people who find them both a help and a hindrance depending on the situation.

There have certainly been times when deadlines were my friend. If it weren’t for my editorial calendar and the deadlines it gives me, I doubt I would have produced anywhere near the amount of content I’ve published over the years.

But there have also been times when an impending deadline created far more panic than the situation warranted. I started focusing on the deadline instead of the work, and ended up creating content I wasn’t happy with.

I still think having some sort of schedule, whether it’s a full-blown editorial calendar or simply promising yourself to write something every week, is a good idea. But don’t use one if it makes you feel uncomfortable.

It’s a schedule, not a contract

If you do decide to create a schedule, just remember that it’s not a legal contract that will have you thrown in jail if you miss a week. If you need more time to work on your post, there’s nothing wrong with posting it a little later than you planned. If having to post every week is making you anxious, try dropping back to once every two weeks.

And if you need a break, then that’s fine too.

At ProBlogger we’ve changed our publishing schedule a lot over the years. And we announced some of those changes to our audience, but not all of them.

As I said earlier, there are no rules about how often you should post new content on your blog. Which means you can create a schedule that suits you, your blog and your life. Don’t feel pressured into posting every week just because other people are. You don’t know what their circumstances are. They may have a team of ghostwriters working for them. Just find a balance between quality and quantity that suits you and your lifestyle.

Another way to look at deadlines

If the mere thought of creating a schedule makes you nervous, think of the deadlines as goals instead. This can help you stay on track without feeling pressured. I’d like to publish a new post every week. But if I don’t then it’s not the end of the world.

And no-one else needs to know what your goals are. If your plan is to publish once a week but it’s taking more than a week to complete each post, the only person who’ll know about the discrepancy will be you. Everyone else will just think you’re writing to a fortnightly schedule.

How do you feel about schedules and deadlines now?

Do you currently use a schedule to create deadlines for yourself? Are you going to start doing things differently after reading this post? Let us know in the comments.

How to Make Money Online for Beginners In India: 10 Legitimate Ways for 2021

how to make money online in India as a beginner

1. Start a YouTube Channel 

If you’re looking for a FREE way to make money online in India, you should definitely try starting a YouTube channel.

YouTube is HUGE as there are over 1.9 billion users logging in every single month.

Also, YouTube has over 2.3 billion MONTHLY active users.

youtube users monthly

Due to COVID Pandemic, everyone is relying on YouTube to watch videos, learn something, or for entertainment purposes.

So, this is probably the RIGHT time to start and grow your own YouTube channel.

If you’re curious to know why you should create your own YouTube channel in 2021 to earn money online in India, here are some of the stats you should probably know.

  • YouTube has over 2 billion monthly users and it’s also one of the biggest search engines after Google
  • 74% of adults in the U.S. use YouTube (so if you want to target high CPC keywords to make more money, YouTube is probably the best platform)
  • 94.5% of OTT watchers in the U.S. are watching YouTube
  • People watch more than a billion hours of video on YouTube every day (yes you heard it right, a billion hours every SINGLE day!)
  • People watched 100 billion hours of gaming on YouTube in 2020 (if you’re good at gaming, you should definitely consider starting a channel!)

So how can you make money from YouTube?

Want to know how to earn money after creating your own YouTube channel in India? Here are some of the proven ways to make money from YouTube.

Become a YouTube partner

One of the most common ways most YouTubers use to make money from their channel is to become a YouTube partner.

Did you know that in the U.S. alone, YouTube will make 5.56 billion dollars in advertising revenue in 2021?

Yes, that’s true. Have a look at the ad revenue of YouTube.

YouTube ad revenue 2021

So putting ads within your videos is a great way to earn money.

That being said, here’s what you need to become a YouTube partner to start earning money.

  • Your YouTube channel should have more than 4,000 valid public watch hours in the last 12 months
  • Your YouTube channel should have more than 1,000 subscribers
  • Your YouTube channel should have a linked AdSense account

That’s it! Once your AdSense account is activated, ads will start showing up on your videos. Depending on the views and CPC (Cost Per Click), your YouTube earnings will vary. 

YouTube Partners also have access to multiple income streams: not just ads as you can also consider premium subscription fees, Super Chat, channel memberships, and many more. 

Sell affiliate products

Here’s a simple strategy to sell affiliate products on YouTube to make money online in India.

  • Choose a niche: You don’t want to serve everyone in the world. You need a target audience. You need to select a specific niche. For example, you can succeed quickly if you pick a small and targeted niche like “fitness tips for seniors” instead of targeting a massive niche like “fitness” or health.
  • Pick an affiliate program: Choosing the right affiliate product to promote is the key to generating more affiliate sales. Pick ONE product that you like and use. For instance, we often promote the Semrush affiliate program because we LOVE it, and also we’ve been using it for 6+ years.
  • Cloak your affiliate links: By default, affiliate links are long and ugly. So you need to make them short and simple. Here’s where you can use affiliate link cloaking plugins like Easy Affiliate Links to cloak your links.
  • Teach the audience about your products: No one buys a product just because you’re promoting it. You need to create awareness about those products. Create how-to tutorials and teach your audience how to use the products. That’s how you can generate more sales. 

Partner with other brands

You can use platforms like Grapevine to easily find brand opportunities to make money from your YouTube channel. To find high-paying brands or sponsorships, you need 10,000 subscribers on YouTube or 10,000 followers on Instagram to be eligible.

It’s also free to create an account on such platforms to find sponsorships for your YouTube channel to monetize. Alternatively, you can analyze the YouTube channels that are relevant to your content to find what brands they are promoting. 

That way, once you get enough subscribers (say 10K subscribers on YouTube), you can reach out to those brands to make money.

Also, you can use tools like Buffer or HootSuite to create, schedule, and analyze your social media posts.

Connect with bloggers

Most of the full-time bloggers outsource their stuff. We all know that blogging involves many things including content creation, email marketing, promotion, and more. Social media management is also one of the key things most full-time bloggers focus on.

So look for full-time bloggers who need social media services. You can try connecting them through emails or social media and ask if they’d like to manage their social media profiles. 

You can join our Facebook group to connect with other bloggers.

  • Mobile devices account for 41.9% of all opened emails (so make sure to use mobile responsive templates while sending emails)
  • According to Campaign Monitor, 320% more revenue is driven from automated emails than non-automated emails
  • Marketing emails contain an average of 435 words

Here’s the fun part: you don’t need a HUGE email list.

You need to build an email list that’s full of people with the same interests and desires.

But… if you need people to click and then buy from the emails you send them, they need to trust you first.

Building trust is the KEY to making money from your email list.

So how do you build trust?

The best way to build trust and nurture your email list is to send “informative or useful emails” regularly.

For instance, if you’re interested in building an email list around “SEO”, you might want to teach people how to get more search traffic, use SEO to grow their business, make profits, and so on. Then, start promoting your SEO services or SEO-related products such as Semrush to start making money from your email list.

If you’re curious to learn more ways to monetize your email list, here are a few strategies that work like a charm in 2021.

Use a tripwire

A tripwire is an affordable offer that is pitched to a potential customer immediately upon their signup to your email list. Tripwire offers usually in the range between $5-$50. That means you can find and promote products that are extremely affordable.

Here’s how a tripwire looks like;

tripwire example

As you can see above, you can offer a HUGE discount on your tripwire product to instantly turn your subscribers (or visitors or leads) into paying customers with a $5 to $50 product.

Selling affiliate products

Here are some of the best affiliate networks you can join to find HIGHLY relevant products in any industry.

  • ClickBank
  • Rakuten
  • Amazon Associates
  • eBay
  • ShareASale
  • CJ Affiliate

Sell your own stuff

If you’re looking for a long-term strategy to make passive income from email marketing, sell your own products. You can consider selling things like;

  • eBooks
  • Themes
  • Tools
  • Checklists
  • Merchandise and the list goes on

5. Use online learning platforms to get paid as an instructor

  3. Keep an eye on top selling landing pages on Coursera to see how they are using headlines, description and structuring their course contents to capture people’s attention.

Create an engaging promo video for your Coursera course

The best way to create curiosity among people to buy your course on platforms like Coursera is to tease them. You can give you a preview or sample taste of how your course content looks like by making a promo video around it.

Not so many course creators do this but if you’re just starting out and want to make more sales from your course, make sure to create an appealing promo video for your course (it can be as short as 1 minute or even 30 seconds).

Go find out where your target audience and customers hang out online. Is it Facebook, twitter or Instagram? Or forums or LinkedIn? Then, you can lay down ways to promote your course to generate more sales from Skillshare.

Give a money back guarantee

When people are buying something online, they are usually skeptical. You can remove the fear of buying from people by providing them a money back guarantee on platforms like Skillshare to make more money as an instructor.

You can provide a 30 day money back guarantee and promise people that if they’re not getting the results you’re promising, then they can ask for a full refund. If you can show that they have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain, your course sales will skyrocket.

7. Become a freelance writer

There’s a HUGE demand for content writing. Every professional blogger, SEO, marketer and small business owner is looking for talented writers to create content consistently for their sites.

There are so many people who are ready to pay thousands (if not lakhs) of bucks every single month for content writing services. Do you know why others are ready to pay so much in content writing?

Because content is what generates traffic from search engines like Google. Just don’t go for sites like Fiverr, UpWork etc where you can only attract cheap paying clients where you can’t really improve your writing skills as a freelancer.

Instead it’s better to find bloggers who are ready to pay for your content writing and start spending more time on creating quality content for them so you can benefit it two ways: one is, you’re earning from content writing and the other is you’ll be learning a lot in the process (so you can also later start a blog from scratch from it).

That said, here are few vital tips you can use if you want to earn more as a freelance writer.

Start pitching every day to get clients: When you’re getting started as a freelancer writer, no one will come looking for your content writing services. You’ve to go and find where your target clients are and start pitching them every single day.

As a rule of thumb, try to send email pitches to at least 3 to 5 new people every single day (for a month or two), even if 1% respond to your pitches, that’s 10 people who are actually interested in paying for content writing services. It then depends on how well you negotiate with your clients to start working with them.

So how can you find clients for your writing services?

The best place is start with blogs. Find out a list of blogs in various industries that are already making decent income (at least 1 lakh or $2000+ per month) to stand a chance to get paid for your content writing services. You can simply do a Google search on “money making bloggers” etc to find a list of all the top bloggers.

Most of the money making bloggers are more interested in generating revenue, driving more traffic and promoting their content to reach wider audience – so they often outsource their content writing part to others who can create good enough content for them.

Quick tip: Start your own blog, write guest post for others and use your bio in the guest posts to drive people to your portfolio or service pages where you can actually offer your freelance content writing services.

Invest in a course or mentor: If you’re completely new to online world and never made even a penny as a freelance writer, we highly recommend you to take a course on Udemy or look for any successful writer who is providing courses on how you can get paid to write.

If you have enough money or budget, you can even hire a blogger or mentor to help you with landing high paying clients. Investing money and time on a course can give you tremendous results and you can really avoid so many dumbest mistakes most freelance beginners make.

Just make sure to implement all the tips and strategies mentioned in the courses you take in order to get the results you want. After all, action is what gives you results.

Pro tip: If want to become a successful freelance writer, make sure to spend quality time in writing every single day. We highly recommend you to write at least 500 to 1000 words (on any topic that you’re interested in) every day for a few months and you’ll notice a drastic improvement in your content writing.

Become friends with other freelance writers: One of the simplest way to accelerated your income as a freelance writer is to network with other freelancers who are already earning while offering their content writing services.

That way, you can easily find out the ins and outs of freelance writing and probably find some interesting and new ways to land high paying clients offering your freelance writing services. You can find other freelancers on blogs, twitter, Facebook groups or even on platforms like Fiverr – just make sure to incentivize them in one or the other way to get help.

Google AdSense or other alternatives

Google Adsense is an incredible ad publishing platform which lets you earn dollars with your content based websites or YouTube channel where it shows ads to target audience.

The more people who click on your AdSense ads, the more money you can generate. The amount of earnings you generate each month from Google AdSense directly depends on the CPC of keywords that you use within your website or YouTube to attract visitors.

All in all, AdSense is a great monetization source for beginner bloggers who want to make more every month from a trusted source like Google.

How to Make a Great Infographic for Your Blog

How to Create an Infographic - Part 1: What Makes a Good Infographic?

Using infographics for your blog is one of the best ways to communicate ideas to your audience. Not only is it more appealing, but it also makes your blog more understandable.

Take for example Grammarly’s 15 Grammar Goofs that Make You Look Silly. It generated over 263k shares since it was published. The result speaks of infographics’ ability to engage and get a reaction of its audience.

Therefore, if you’re planning on generating more blog traffic, you need to publish infographics. In this post are tips on how to make a great infographic that captures the imagination of your readers.

Tips to Making a Great Inforaphic

1. Identify your audience first

Come up with an infographic idea based on what your audience wants. Even if you design the best infographic out there, it won’t mean anything to your audience if it doesn’t resonate with them.

By creating an infographic that speaks to them, you can maximize the results of your audience and drive more social shares and blog traffic.

To achieve this, you need a firm grasp of your audience.

Ask yourself this question:

Who are your readers?

More important:

What makes them one?

Answering these two simple question will tell you a lot about your blog. From there, you can come up with ideas on how to brainstorm for infographic ideas.

And while infographics are great for generating backlinks, that’s not their main purpose. Instead, they should solve your audience’s problem. Your infographics present information they don’t know yet in a fun and visual way..

2. Plot it out

Map out on a piece of paper what you want to convey to your audience.

Create an outline and write every idea down. Brainstorm and decide on which kind of images are most capable of illustrating the ideas you want to convey.

It should convey what your product is or what the topic is all about. Explain why people should try it. Splash in some humor, facts, or perhaps a comparison.

You can do this by simply drawing the infographic on a piece of paper or use an online wireframe tool to help bring it to life.

At this stage, some of your ideas will be very rough. But it’s part of the process so making errors along the way is normal. Just make sure to fix the mistakes before you settle on a design for your infographic.

3. Include statistics

Most infographics are made to present data. It’s a smart way of conveying something to people. After all, we are better at processing visualized stats and figures compared to just seeing plain numbers.

However, it’s important to stay accurate and factual. Your sources should be reliable and your graphic representations line up with your numbers.

All of the best infographics have figures that backup their claims. It’s the best way to make a compelling case to your audience and make them believe you.

Not to mention, you can present facts and figures in a livelier way through graphics than by just painting the numbers. It’s a win-win for both parties!

4. Express everything visually

Let the visuals do the talking. Keep it simple. Make sure that your infographic is easy to look at. Words should be easily read and your points easy to understand.

However, don’t give everything away in your infographic because they won’t have any reason to visit your site. Your infographic should just entice them to read more and open your blog.

Also, see to it that your infographic shows up properly on phones and tablet. You’re already designing your website for mobile SEO, so you’ll want to design your infographic for mobile as well.

5. Promote it!

Your infographic won’t mean squat not until you share it to your audience.

There are lots of ways to promote your blog and content on it, apart from the fact that there are lots of social media channels to share to. Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest are some of the best avenues for you to share your infographic.

You can also reach out to influencers in your niche and ask them for a feature. Also add social plugins to your infographic to make it shareable.

There are lots of good infographics that are left in the outskirts of the web because its creators didn’t promote them.

I can’t stress this enough:

Don’t waste your infographic.

It’s arguably the best type of content out there if you’re serious in growing your blog.

Therefore, share and promote as much as possible to make the most out of them.


Examples of Great Infographics

Below are some of my favorite infographics that you can use as a reference to design your own.

1. Ways to Improve Back Posture

This is a good example of a great infographic because of its readability and design. The words can easily be read and its thoughts are well laid out. In other words, anyone can understand what the infographic is all about.

The way this infographic about improving posture is organized also makes it more enticing for viewers to keep on reading. It follows a dynamic layout where viewers are compelled to read from top to bottom.

2. The Growth of Artificial Intelligence in eCommerce

Single-color themes are also a great way to create a stunning infographic. See how this effectively utilized the different shades of blue in its background and font.

The robots also reflect what the infographic is all about — artificial intelligence. It also follows proper spacing as the words and images aren’t cluttered in one single spot.

3. How Steve Jobs Started

Create a well laid-out timeline of an influential person such as Apple founder Steve Jobs and you’ll have hundreds if not thousands of people sharing your infographic. As big as a legend he is, there’s no doubt that everyone will take a peek at your infographic. Apart from that, you can also see how simplicity and proper designing are implemented.


Wrapping Up

Infographics are still up and running, even in this “full-blown media world” we’re in.

If there’s anyone saying they’re dead, then they’re seriously misguided or still haven’t seen the real good ones. You can create a great infographic, though, by keeping our tips in mind.

Also, creating an infographic doesn’t require you to be a great designer. There are graphics editing tools out there like Canva and Visme. They help you build infographics from their wide selection of beautiful templates. You can then edit them as you please before publishing them to your blog.

So really, there is no excuse for you to not make a great infographic. The information is out there – it’s time for you to take action and create something special for your audience!

11 Things You Can Learn about Blogging from Thomas Edison

11 things you can learn about blogging from Thomas Edison

11 things you can learn about blogging from Thomas Edison

This post is based on episode 252 of the ProBlogger podcast.

Thomas Edison. Inventor of the light bulb, the phonograph and the motion picture camera. But not the blog.

That being said, a lot of Edison’s ideas on inventing can also apply to blogging. And so here are 11 quotes of his, and how they can help you become a better blogger.

1. Start with a need

“I never perfected an invention that I did not think about in terms of the service it might give others… I find out what the world needs, then I proceed to invent.”

When you’re building your blog, think about the problems it will solve, the people it will serve, and the changes it will bring. Most successful blogs I’ve come across succeed when they meet a need, solve a problem, or enhance someone’s life.

Depending on what you’re writing about, your blog could:

  • give them information they don’t have
  • entertain people when they’re feeling bored
  • give people a sense of community when they feel alone
  • gives them information that teaches them something.

Many successful blogs started with the blogger facing a problem, and then talking about what they’re doing to try and solve it. That’s certainly how ProBlogger came to be. My problem was figuring out how to build a profitable blog, and I used the blog to talk about what I was trying to solve that problem.

Digital Photography School started a little differently. It came about not to solve my problems, but rather to solve problems other people were having. I began answering their questions and helping them out.

And I like to think that by doing so I changed their lives, even if only a little bit.

2. Work smart

“Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.”

As bloggers, it’s easy to fill our time with tasks that seem urgent but aren’t necessarily important.

Posting updates on social media can be one of these things. Yes, it can help us our blogs. But a lot of what we do on social media doesn’t necessarily translate into growth. Instead, they distract us from what we should be doing, such as:

  • writing great content
  • updating our archives
  • building traffic to our blogs
  • building community engagement
  • monetizing our blogs.

Worried you may not be investing your time as wisely as you should be? Then how about this: over the next week record everything you do and how long you spend doing it. And then, at the end of the week, figure how much time you spent on core activities compared to things that didn’t really contribute to growing your blog.

3. Work and wait

“Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.”

Unless you have a time machine (of only Edison had invented one of those), some of your efforts will take a while to bear fruit. It’s going to take time for the search engines to index your blog, and for you to build a profile ion your niche and establish trust with your readers.

But that’s okay, because while all that’s happening you can still be working on creating great content, building relationships with your readers, and driving traffic to your blog. Because the more work you do while your waiting, the better the results will be when your hard work finally does bear fruit.

So don’t be discouraged when your first blog post doesn’t appear in a Google search, or you don’t get many (or any) responses to your questions. It will all happen eventually. In the meantime, just keep working.

4. It takes work

“Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”

Coming up with ideas for your blog can be a struggle sometimes, and it can feel like a major victory when you finally come up with one.

But don’t start celebrating just yet. It’s going to take a lot of hard work to turn your great idea into a great post.

Unfortunately, this is where a lot of bloggers fail. They come up with the idea, but then don’t put in the effort to maximise its potential. And so their great idea becomes a mediocre post at best (assuming they bother to write one at all).

What a waste.

Creating a successful blog takes a lot of work. You need do a lot of little things, and you need to do them all well. Because when you do, they all combine to create a great blog.

5. Failure brings you closer to success

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

Treat every post you write, every attempt to promote your blog and every tool you use as a learning experience that can help shape your future.

If you put something out there and it doesn’t work, you’re one step closer to finding something that will work. Keep putting things out there, and treating everything you do as an experiment. Whether it succeeds or fails, it will teach you something.

Some of your experiments will fail. Others will work, but nothing much will come of them. But sooner or later one of your experiments will fly. And it then become the basis for further experiments that give you even better results.

But whatever you do, don’t stop trying.

6. You are capable of astounding things

“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.”

You have incredible potential. You’re unique, and have qualities that no-one else does. So tap into that uniqueness, and don’t sell yourself short.

You may be looking at your blog and thinking it’s nowhere near as good as you want it to be. Or you may be comparing yourself to another blogger who seems to be doing better than you are.

Don’t limit yourself by what’s in front of you right now. You have incredible potential. You just haven’t reached it yet. And as I said, you have qualities no other blogger has. Your stories, your experiences and your personality are all unique. And through your blog you can share them with the world.

Yes, it’s going to take work. And yes, you’ll have to be patient, and not get discouraged when nothing seems to be happening. Keep going, and don’t sell yourself short. You are capable of astounding things.

7. Sometimes failing is the start of success

“Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless.”

Just because something doesn’t work the way you expected doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a failure. Sometimes what actually happened can be just as useful as what you wanted to happen.

When American engineer Percy Spencer was working on an active radar set in 1945, cooking was probably the last thing on his mind. But then he noticed the chocolate bar in his pocket had melted, which led to the invention of the microwave oven we all take for granted today.

Blogging is no different. Sometimes you set out to serve your readers in one way, and end up serving them in another.

My first ever photography blog was supposed to be a photo blog of my trip to Morocco. I shared lots of photos I took, and then wrote a little review of the camera I used on the trip. No-one took any notice of my photos (apparently they weren’t that great), but my camera review took off. It ranked high on Google, and people started responding to what I’d written, which led to me creating a camera review blog.

But chances are I never would have created it if I hadn’t experimented with the photo blog and taken note of the unexpected outcome.

8. Don’t give up too early

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”

Most blogs are abandoned after a month or two. Unfortunately, it takes about three years for a blog to really take off. And that stretch of time from the two-month mark to the three-year mark can seem like an eternity.

I can remember enduring that period. Is this going to work? I can see some little sparks and a few things happening, but I’m a long way from being able to do this full-time. I’m really not sure I can keep going.

And that’s why we started 31 Days To Build A Better Blog – to get people through those patches where nothing seems to be happening, despite all the effort you’re making. Having 31 days of action and interaction on your blog can really lift both your blog and your spirits.

Just keep going. It will be worth it. o you need to persist with that.

9. Make it fun

“I never did a day’s work in my life. It was all fun.”

A great way to get through those tough months is to make sure you’re writing about something you enjoy and are passionate about.

Let’s face it: to start with you’re not going to be making much money (if any). You may not even have any readers. So you need something else to keep you going.

And what better way is there than to have fun?

So blog about something you’re interested in. The kind of thing you talk about enthusiastically with your friends. The kind of thing you’d probably write about even if you knew no-one will ever read what you’ve written.

And there’s another benefit to writing about things you enjoy. Your energy and enthusiasm will show in your writing, and readers will pick up on it. They’ll keep coming back to read your latest post, and may even come to enjoy what you’re writing about as much as you do.

Which is a fantastic way to grow your blog.

10. Have lots of ideas

“To have a great idea, have a lot of them.”

Not every idea you come up with will be a good one. But if that’s the only idea you have, then you might try to make it work regardless. And chances are the resulting post won’t be a good one.

You’re much better off having lots of ideas you can draw from and discard at will. So make some time for yourself to come up with as many ideas as you can.

Some of them may not work. But this isn’t the time to decide. Just record whatever idea pops into your head, no matter how far-fetched it might be.

And be ready to capture ideas that pop into your head when you’re not trying to think of any. I have a piece of paper and a pencil beside my bed so I can quickly jot them down before I forget them.

Schedule time for curiosity and playfulness. Yes, you need to work. But I think it’s also important to have a little bit of ‘white space’ in your week where you can allow yourself to dream, be curious, ask questions, and brainstorm.

Who knows what ideas you’ll come up with?

11. You don’t have to start with a finished product

“To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.”

A lot of bloggers think that before they can start they need the perfect domain name, design, tools, products, and so on. But the truth is no successful blog has ever started that way. I can’t think of one that was perfect out of the gate.

My first blog was on Blogger, using the Blogspot domain. I didn’t have a server. I didn’t have the best tools. I didn’t have a design. (I was using their ugly navy blue default template.) I didn’t have any pictures or visuals on my blog at all.

And I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t know how to code. I didn’t even know how to make text bold.

But I wrote a post, and that led me to write another post. Over time I learned the skills, designed my blog, and I learned how to use the various tools available. (And yes, I learned how to make text bold.)

But my blog is far from perfect. I’m still learning, and there are still things I can add to it.

The key is to experiment and keep working at it. You’ll gradually refine your ideas, your blog will begin to grow, and you’ll get it the way you want it. And then you’ll probably reach a point where you don’t like it anymore, and so you’ll start the process all over again.

And that’s okay, because it’s all a learning experience.

Which quote resonates the most with you?

I really hope the quotes from Edison and how they can relate to blogging has given you some ideas, inspiration and encouragement to keep doing what you’re doing.

We can’t wait to see what happens next.

Facebook Contest Apps – How to Easily Create Facebook Contests

Contests For Facebook Business Page

Facebook contests are one of the most effective ways to reach new audiences and drive a ton of viral traffic back to your site.

With over 1.3 billion users on the social network, it’s no wonder more individuals, bloggers, brands and businesses are trying to create Facebook contests to drive more engagement and activity to their sites.

Setting up your own Facebook contest in previous years was a big hassle. You would have to mess around with the settings and tabs on your Facebook Fan Pages and this was usually more than a headache than anything else.

Fortunately, a wide range of services have figured out how to make this process much easier and now anyone can create effective social networking contests in just a few minutes. What’s even better is that they are now more effective and powerful than ever.

How to Create Amazing Facebook Contests

With so many different solutions on the market today, I’ve chosen some of my favorite Facebook contest apps and gave the benefits of each of them below.

Before we jump into reviewing the top Facebook contest apps available today, I wanted to first highlight some of the best ways to tweak your campaigns and promotions for maximum performance.

1. Choose a Prize that is Relevant

While it may seem like a good idea to give away the latest tech toy or Apple product, you will do much better with your campaigns if you choose a prize that is relevant to your brand, product or service you are trying to offer. 

2. Give Your Promotion a Jump Start

All contest and promotions need to start off with a bang. In addition to promoting your contest through social networks, you should also use your email lists and site traffic to give your campaigns a boost.

3. Always Collect an Email Address

No matter what your prize is or what you are trying to promote, be sure to always require an email address. A lot of people will enter your contest and never come back. An email address is the best way to keep them coming back for more. 

4. Make Sure Your Contest is Mobile Ready

More people are using their mobile devices than ever before. Mobile optimization should be at the forefront of every blogger or website owner’s mind, and should NOT be something to overlook.

Be sure to check your promotion and lead gen forms to make sure they are mobile ready and optimized so no leads are lost in the process. 

5. Follow Up with All Participants

Once your promotion is over, be sure to follow up with all participants… not just the winners. This is another great opportunity for you to send out one more message to everyone, letting them know the contest ended, thanking them and pushing your end offer one last time.

Follow these contest and promotions tips, while using any of the recommended applications below and you will be setup for maximum performance and results!


Top Facebook Contest Apps List

2. Heyo Contest Builder App

When it comes time for you to choose a quality Facebook contest app, going with a simple drag and drop solution may be your best option. Website builders have gone mainstream for website creation, so we’d expect that technology to eventually carry over to Facebook.

That is exactly what Heyo had in mind when they were creating their service to drive activity and engagement through the major social network.
