Regarding my education; I have received my B.tech in I.T in 2012 from Rajasthan Technical University. After doing my B.tech I was introduced to online marketing by my best friend after I became uninterested in coding. When I entered into online marketing I was fascinated by SEO, Social media, blogging & other online marketing concepts so I started earning all of them. In turn I started my first official blog, Bloggersideas.com. Now I am focusing on growth of my new digital agency Digiexe.

J: Yes I do have a formula for my blog content. I prepare a monthly plan for content strategies and weekly I schedule a meeting with my writer that covers what type of content can be useful for my blog readers and what will not work for my blog.
Planning is very important for blog content. If your content is not compelling readers will bounce from your blog easily but by offering valuable content to readers, it is for sure that readers will stick with your blog.
Many writers from around the world contact me for guest posts so I have prepared specific guidelines for them also. By visiting this feature on my blog you can see the guidelines to get an idea of how the process of planning works.

It will help to generate traffic & sales.
D: How do you generate content and ideas for your blog?
J: I generate content on my blog through various online tools available, I have shared list of content marketing generation tools on my blog.
Using title generation tools like tweakyourbiz.com, portent.com, hubspot,contentcrew, etc.
These title generation tools are very helpful and will always help you to create awesome headlines. If your headlines are killer then there is good chance that readers will click on your headlines. So headlines should be enticing so that users click through.
Always use these tools to create headlines.
Also these resources are great to get ideas for content and to see niche blog & check out what is trending in those blogs. Research is also very important, once you have selected the title, start researching that topic thoroughly.
D: What are some of your best blogging tips to get the best results?
J: Best blogging tips; Number one is that you always have to have great content for your blog. Make your blog content very strong. Research your content on good resources. Rephrase it in your own words and make it meaningful for your readers. By having researched the content on your blog, there is always a good chances that your blog will rank higher than your competitor. Blog design should be very good, If design is poor then users will have bad experience and not come back. Have great “call to action” buttons in your blog; have a subscription box, social media sharing plugins for sharing content like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest etc and a “follow” button. Make your blog design kickass and offer something unique which other bloggers are not offering. By being highly active on social media there are good chances that bloggers will get best results by promoting their blog.
This question is endless I could write whole guide for it but I have stop here 😛
D: Talk to us about tagging in blogs and why it is important and also how to use tagging to your advantage.
J: I am going to focus on tagging people in blogs. Tagging other people in blogs always helps in the best way. Tagging other pro bloggers in your content & telling them that you have mentioned them in your article always brings more credibility & trust to your blog.
Tagging is best way to get traffic and more bloggers will know about your blog. But remember one thing; do not tag unnecessarily in your blog posts or some bloggers may get irritated and may never visit your blog again. Only tag them in relevant posts.
D: We really appreciate your input and we wish you the best with your business! Thank you again for your time.
