While starting a blog, every newbie faces issue regarding budget, knowledge and resource crunch.
Money Saving Tips for Bloggers
Almost every month, I receive 2-3 emails asking how to start a blog and make money with some problem listed like-

  • I don’t have much budget to start a blog
  • I am a student
  • How I can manage the time
  • I am not able to save money earned from blogging and so on…
Well, these are very generic questions and everyone face. Even I did too. Especially the last one where I was unable to save much money earned from blogging.

Then I tried many things and started making a to-do list and found significant improvements. Here in this blog post, I am going to list the main seven main points which helped to save more. I am sure this Nine money saving tips for bloggers will help you as well.

Top Money Saving Tips for Bloggers: 9 Proven Techniques

Let’s start with some of the best money saving tips for bloggers. You will find many bloggers or people living online life complaining about the saving and this post is for all those who wish to save some amount.

#1 Look for combination of Freebies

Usually, bloggers keep on searching the best blogging tools which can save their time and provide maximum ROI.

But as the price of internet marketing tools is high and so many are unable to buy. The best option for this is the combination of free tools which complete the same requirements.

For example, let’s say you need some software like Grammarly. Also, Grammarly provides many features apart from the main grammar checking like plagiarism checking, etc. which is available in only premium version.

Again the Grammarly Premium is available for at least $11.99 when you will buy their yearly plan, but everyone can’t afford this. Even you can use Grammarly premium free, but that is for only one month.

The best alternative to this is, use the free version of Grammarly and then use any plagiarism checker tool for plagiarism.

By this way, you can save some good amount of money. But there are some limitations also-

  • Premium version of tools have more features
  • You will have to manage multiple accounts

#2. Wait for Some Big Events/Holidays

During some holidays or events, manufacturers provide huge discounts and deals on their products.

Sometimes you may even find the discount up to 85-90% also which is huge. Let’s say some product cost around $100, and if you’re able to grab a discount of 90%, then you are getting at just $10.

You may find a bigger discount on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, New Year, Easter, Christmas, etc.

#3. Look for the Coupons

Coupons are the excellent way to save money on online transactions. You can get some lucrative offers and discounts using coupon codes.

There are multiple coupons sites where you can visit to get the coupon codes for a discount on any product you are purchasing online.

Recently, when I was buying hosting, I got a deal for 20%. I was about to make payment and simply checked coupons to get some additional discount and found a deal of 20%.

To get the best coupon just search “product name+ coupon” in Google and you will find hundreds of website offering coupon code. Just go through the description of the coupon and if it is suitable for you, copy it and apply.

For examples, if you are looking for American Swan coupons, just search this keyword in Google and get all the available codes.

Similarly, you can also search for “product name + offers”. For example, Ajio offers to get the offers available on Ajio.

You can also check our Tesla Theme coupon code and UniHost Hosting Review for the offers on WordPress theme and hosting.

#4. Participate in Giveaway/Contests

Giveaway and contests are a good and smart way to attract visitors and convert visitors into a subscriber.

Many bloggers and internet marketers keep on organizing a giveaway for some blogging tools, Hosting packages to attract some subscribers and promote their blogs and products. You should participate in those contests to get a chance to win the tools.

Such contests just ask you to like on Facebook, Tweet and/or subscribe which won’t take more than a couple of minutes. In response, if you will win the giveaway, you will have amazing blogging tools to use.

Who knows you can be the lucky person or can be one of the lucky people? :)

#5. Reviews

You must be hearing bloggers getting some gift from companies and PRs’ to promote their brand and products.

Some companies ask you to write a review about the product and promote it in your network in exchange for some gift which may be the product.

You can approach the company which manufactures the tool you are looking to get and contact for the free copy and in response to a review post on your blog.

Recently I wrote a blog post on how to get Grammarly premium free where you can see how to approach a company to provide your free premium access to their product in exchange for a review on your blog.

Money Saving Tips for Bloggers
The benefit of this method is, you can also earn from an affiliate. If someone buys from the affiliate link of your review, then you can make a certain percentage of the sale amount which usually varies from 10-80%.

#6. Co-ordinate with other bloggers

Let’s say there are some products which you are not promoting and want to buy such products?

In such cases, check your friends’ blog or fellow bloggers’ blog. If someone from your group is promoting, just check how much affiliate commission company is providing in that product.

Let’s say it is 50%. Now approach that particular blogger and say you want to buy it from his/her link but want some part of the commission (e.g. 20-30%).

Your friend will never ignore such offers as he/she will also make some commission and you are also getting good deals.

The only thing you need to take care here is, the other person should be your close friend, or you have done any form of business together due to obvious reasons.

#7. Go for long term

You will always find companies providing great deals on long time subscription. For example, if you will look at the Ahrefs subscription, you will find 20% off on yearly subscription, and this is not just with Ahrefs but almost all the products.
Money Saving Tips for Bloggers
So if you have tried the product and you feel that it worth in the long term consider buying it for longer.

But before buying any product for a longer period, ask some questions to yourself to avoid unnecessary expenses.

  • Do you need this product?
  • For how much time you need?

#8. Diversify the investment

Many bloggers are struggling when it comes to the investment of the money they earned from blogging.

As I said, investment and saving are equally important as learning is and so you should plan accordingly. It can be something like below-

  • Invest some part to grow your blog/business through which you are earning
  • Keep some part of your expenditure
  • Invest few percentage to enhance your skills
  • Save/invest the rest of your amount
Usually, if you will see government employee investing, they don in FD or LIC, so similar fixed return funds. While IT or corporate sector employees tend to do in SIP, mutual funds, etc. apart from the traditional investment.

I have seen blogger also investing in Bitcoins, Bonds, etc. So the main thing is to diversify your investment and spread it across Fixed Deposits, PPF, Bonds, ELSS, Mutual Funds and Equity Market.

#9. Use co-working places

If you are a full-time blogger and feel working at home decreases your productivity then it’s time to move ahead and find a dedicated space for working.
Money Saving Tips for Bloggers
Well, for many people get a dedicated place for working can be expensive and so a co-working place is highly recommended.

You can opt for any of the below options-

  • Look for a co-working space like 91springbooard, Innov8, etc. where you will be issued a pass for daily/monthly/yearly basis as per sheet and facilities you require.
  • You can also get the space in partnerships. For example, you are working in the day time and so you can allow someone else (e.g. small call-center) to use the infrastructure and space during the night and can share the cost.
  • There are some companies which provide few sheets on a monthly basis at some cost.
By this way, you can increase your productivity at less cost. Here is an interesting stuff related to co-working spaces.

A 2011 Deskmag survey of more than 1,500 coworkers in 52 countries supported her findings:

  • 75% reported an increase in productivity since joining their space
  • 80% reported an increase in the size of their business network
  • 92% said an increase in the size of their social circle
  • 86% reported a decrease in their sense of isolation
  • 83% stated that they trusted others in their co-working space

Wrapping it up!


Saving money is crucial for everyone, and you should make it a habit like you earn. I have tried to cover all the important aspect of money saving tips for bloggers, and I am sure these will help you.

Don’t buy the stuff you don’t require and try to invest the money earned as much as you can. A start with the saving account can work better. Also, try the trial period of any product before buying it for the long term.

Apart from all these, you can also try the following to save money being a blogger-

  • Make monthly budget
  • Try to shop online for your monthly expenses
  • Avoid offers like buy two get one free
  • Plan your travel in advance and book accordingly to avoid surcharge
  • Use PPF, NSC, and LIC for tax exemption, etc.
I will love to know what you to save money. Also, do share if you have a fantastic money saving tips for bloggers like you and me.

10 Best Ways of Using Twitter for Benefit in Business

By Ashutosh Jha → Monday, April 24, 2017
There is no shortage of social media sites out there to be a part of. Every day it seems like there are new ones being created and as a consumer, it can be challenging to keep everything straight. But still Twitter is an integral part, and one should know using Twitter for benefit in Business.

As a business, your aim is to engage the widest array of audiences, and seeing that most of the world does much of their communication and commerce online, it’s only natural that you as a business seek to use the platform to its full advantage.

As a business, you have to prioritize the places where you’re going to funnel your marketing efforts. People would say that you have to be on all of the social media platforms to engage as many people as possible. But unless you’re a large business with a staff large enough to accommodate each facet of social media, this isn’t a realistic goal, nor is it one that will be worth your efforts.

Choose to focus on one at a time. For starters, Twitter is a great place to begin. Here are ten ways of using Twitter for benefit in Business.

10 Top ways of using Twitter for Benefit in Business

1. Create an Account- Of course, to use a social media platform; you’re going to have to create an account. Creating an account is super easy, just make sure to write down your password and username so that you don’t waste time trying to remember your information every time you want to log in. Once you’ve done that, you can move onto the next step.

2. Create Content and Link Accounts- The amazing thing about technology and social media accounts is the fact that you can link all of your accounts. You want to aim to make your company personal so that people feel a connection to you.

If you’re a loan company, create an account, follow a bunch of different people, and create content that shows the world who you are, who your people are, why you do what you do, and how you seek to change the world. If you make things personal, people will want to connect with you and conduct business through your accounts.

3. Tweet Often- As far as Twitter goes, the more noise you make on the platform, the better off things will be for you. You can’t expect to make any headway with clientele if you’re sending out one tweet every once in a blue moon.

If you want to take advantage of Twitter as a business, find somebody to run this aspect of your business and make it a priority to tweet often. Preferably at least three times a day, as different people see different posts according to the time of day that they’re able to get on the platform to check things out.

Although there is no rule like these many times you should tweet and it depends on the kind of business you do. But you should maintain consistency. Here is a report saying the engagement vs. a number of tweets per day.

4. Follow the Influencers- You should also follow the influencers in your area to get updated on the latest buzz. Also, follow those to learn the strategies and implement those for your business. For example, if you are running a business in IT field then, you can follow the influencers from IT field and follow what they do to attract the clients. You can also implement the similar strategies.

5. Track Mention- Usually, people don’t track the mention on Twitter much. But if you are using Twitter for benefit in business, you should do. You don’t know when someone will suggest you for some business related queries.

Also, try to reply those as much as you can. If someone is just sharing your status or link, just reply saying thanks. This is a good business ethics and seen on the point of gratitude.

6. Retweet- Don’t be afraid to retweet as this will help you to connect with real people. Also, a sometimes person may retweet your tweets also which can be helpful in your business.

7. Follow trends/hashtags- To get more reach on the Twitter, you need to follow the current trend and hashtags following. You can find the trending items in the sidebar.
These trends change as per the location, and so you should target the trends and hashtags for the country you are targeting.

8. Use images and videos- Visuals are a great way to reach and engage mass. The same applies to social media also. Use GIF images/standard pictures/videos to get more engagements and reach.

As per a research was done by Buffer app, tweets with images received 18% more click compared to the one without. Here are some of the interesting stats regarding the tweets with and without images-

• Tweets with images receives 18% more clicks
• Tweets with images receives 89% more favorite
• Tweets with images receives 150% more retweets
9. Don’t be afraid to ask- Don’t be afraid to ask your followers to retweet your tweets. There is nothing wrong in it, and even big companies are doing this. You’re just making an appeal.
10. Optimize Tweet’s Bio- Make your Twitter bio meaningful, interesting and unique. This will help you to get more followers and engagement. Write what you are and what you do in a nice way. A good example can be found at Neil Patel’s Bio.

These were some of the great ways of using Twitter for benefit in business. Do try these and I am sure you’ll see some good charm coming to your business.

So, let’s start with the following 5 best free website builder software which you can use to design a blog or website easily.

5 Best Free Website Builder Software for your next website

The websites I am going to list in this best free website builder software are based on the experience, easy design, templates available and the features they provide. You can have different opinions which you can share in the comment section.

1. Wix

Wix is one of the oldest and top website builder available currently. You can check this article for some more details about Wix.

There are hundreds of websites templates available at Wix under different niches which you can use for your next website.

Using Wix you can develop a website from scratch or edit the existing templates for your use without any coding skills.

4. Weebly

Weebly is another popular free website builder tool people use a lot. The best thing I found with their template is the SEO optimization. They have considered all the major on-page SEO optimization techniques while designing the templates.

Weebly absolutely offers free plans with many standard options like domain and sub-domain name, a unlimited number of pages and an option to create the store. All these features are completely free and Weebly will charge 3% transaction fee on all your transactions.

The only drawback I found with Weebly is, the number of free templates available is very less. Hardly hundreds of such templates and themes have been provided.

5. SquareSpace

SquareSpace is another great website builder. Although it is not that popular compared to Wix and Weebly but works great especially for the photographers.

The drawback I found with SquareSpace is the cost. For the fully loaded site, you’ll have to pay around $18 per month which is quite expensive.

Other than that, SquareSpace themes are great to look at. The template editing part is also handsome but the newbie may find bit difficult as there is a bit of a learning curve.

They have a variety of themes under different niches and all the themes are fast loading and SEO have been taken care of.

5 Common Blogging Mistakes Every Bloggers Should Avoid

By Ashutosh Jha →
Avoid some common blogging mistakes that many bloggers do as this will help you in the long run.

I remember once I said to one of my friends that I have started a blog for an online living. But with no surprise he ignored it. Then I gave examples of some well-established bloggers and showed their income report too. Finally, he told, this might happen.


He was not wrong. Many new bloggers fail in their initial stage itself because they are not committing some basic stuff while blogging.
Apart from selecting a great template for your blog and a good and unique domain name for your blog/website, many other things are there on which you should focus and not make mistakes.

No doubt, everybody makes mistakes, but one should learn from their mistakes. And learning from your mistakes will make you a leader in your respective fields. This is my personal experience.

So in this article, I am going to tell you some common blogging mistakes that most of the blogger do, but to be a successful blogger you need to avoid that.

These 5 Mistakes Every Bloggers Should Avoid

1. Not making friends who are from same profession


This is the most common mistake that many people do. They usually don't make friends from their profession, in this case blogger. Few bloggers think, why should they make blogger friends. There are many benefit of it-

  • They will update you with the latest trend in the blogging.
  • They even help you while deciding the topic on which you can write.
  • They can help you with the different tools/technologies that you should use to increase the traffic.
  • They can also review your blog and can suggest to improve, if something is not correct.

There are many more advantages of it, so i will suggest you to make at least some blogger friends and have some discussion with them at least once in a while. This is a very good practice.

2. Write on a single topic instead of multiple topics


It's a good practice to write on a single topic instead of multiple topics. There are many benefit of it like-
  • You can attract the advertiser. Advertiser mainly choose those website which is about some particular product. And here your blogging is your product.
  • While writing on particular topic, you can make a base of your regular visitor. This will help you in getting the brand name.
There are many other benefits also, which you can read here.

3. Not using images and captions


This is another mistakes that most of the blogger commit. They either not use images or if they use, they don't put caption of it. It's great saying that-

A picture is worth a thousand words

ie. Even a complex story can be depicted with a simple image. So try to include images in your blog posts wherever necessary. Also use appropriate title and captions for your used images. As you can see above, I have used a caption which tells why i have used that image in this post. The same applies to search engine also.

If you will not use title and captions, search engine will not crawl that image and indirectly you will lose some search traffic. And isn't that everything.

So I would rather suggest to include few images, where ever required in your blog posts with proper title and captions.

4. Not replying to the visitor's comment


This is one of the common and biggest mistakes that a blogger do. They don't answer the reader's ask. In blogging, it's very necessary to build a relationship with your visitors. Especially the newbie bloggers should answer the queries raised by your readers.

You only think, you visited any shop and asked for certain things and the shopkeeper didn't answer you. How you will feel? Probably you will not visit that shop again.

The same applies to here also. If you won't reply to their queries, probably they will never return again and you will lose again your valuable visitors.

5. Once written the post, you think it's done


Generally, most of the blogger think that whatever they have written is just great to read and not doing any editing to their post. But it's not true. Even if you have written perfectly the post while writing first time, still it needs editing. Just read once after completing your post and see how much editing it needs.

So take some time around 20-15 minutes and edit the whole post. And then see the effect of it. It's always good practice to make a list of points which you should check while editing like grammar, font, color etc.

Conclusion

No one is perfect and all do less or more mistakes. But the one who learn from their mistakes, grows. So consider my above points to make your blog and blogging career successful.

Apart from the above points, keep editing your posts depending on the requirements.

10 Things to Know before Starting a Blog

By Ashutosh Jha →
So you want to start your own new blog?
Or you want to take your blog to a new height?
This post is for you. Here I’ll discuss about few important things to know before starting a blog.


If you’re in this field you must have seen things about blogging changes every now and then but not completely. This I think is the beauty of blogging. You must have to be active in the blogosphere and on the internet to keep yourself updated.

There are millions of blogs online, but whether all are successful? Of course not. Only few of those make the name and money. Why like this? There must be some reason behind this success. If you can get those secrets and can implement on your blog too, you can be the next.


In this post I’m going to show you some important things you need to know before starting a blog. I am sure if you’ll follow these tips, you’re going to save lots of time and energy.

Before moving to those 10 things that you should know before starting a blog, first I would like to ask few questions to you. You should ask these questions yourself before planning to start a blog. So here are those-

1. Why you want to start a blog
2. Who would be your primary audience
3. What is your story (Niche)
4. Can you fill the gap of niche with your content
5. Can you commit to Blogging- Consistency
6. Are there a chance to earn from it
7. Can you be active in the online world
8. Can you handle the pressure and critic
9. How you’re going to build links and about SEO
10. What is your ultimate goal

I think these are the very basic question you should ask yourself before starting a blog or even if you’ve a running blog, you should ask these questions to plan out the things in a better way. Do let me know your answers of any favorite question in comments. I’ll love to know that.

Things you should know Before Starting a Blog


So let’s start with those points by following which you can become one of the successful blogger in the coming time. Also if you disagree with me at any point of time or you want to ask any question/doubt, please drop your question/feedback below. I’ll love to answer those.

1. Select the best category of Story

This is the very first and basic step while starting a blog. Niche selection is very important as this is going to decide your future as how other things will go. It’s always preferable to select single topic niche compared to multi topic niche especially in long race. Already I’ve written a complete blog post on Single Topic Blog vs. Multi Topic Blog. If you’ve not read this, I would suggest you to read that also because I have given a complete guide for the niche here.

Also if still you’ve lots of topic in your mind and you’re not sure (my case was similar), this is what you should do and the same I did. Take a pen and notepad and write the entire niche name on which you want to start a blog. Now write at least 15-20 blog post name for each of the niche. You will clearly come to 4-5 from the list. Now check out of the remaining, which have less competition and more chance to earn, select that niche. I am sure by this way you’ll select the best niche for you.

2. A self-Hosted blog is still best

We think about this a lot but the best thing you can do about blog hosting is host your blog on your own hosting. No matter it is a blogger or wordpress. Self-hosted blogs are far better than the free platforms like wordpress.com or blogspot.com or Tumblr. 

So, if you’re going to start a blog I would recommend you to use BlueHost hosting. This is one of the most reliable hosting I’ve ever seen. I’m using their service on my other blog and am completely satisfied with their service. You’ll get a free domain also with any hosting package.

With self-hosted blog you’ll be able to manage as per your need which is almost not possible in free blogging platform.

3. Define your Target Audience

This is the point where many newbie bloggers commit mistake. They either failed to define their target audiences or if they do, many fail to reach out to them. You need to overcome on both the scenario.

Define your audience & Reach out to them


This means select your customers from your niche. This is so simple. If anybody wants to sell a cloth, he/she needs to reach out to that person who are looking for the cloths not there who are looking for something else which does not even have any relevance with cloths. In blogging also we do follow the same things.

If anybody/group is looking for the technical tips but you provide health related tips and you’re reaching out to them definitely you’ll never convert those to buy from you or visit to you. So always select your target audience. If you’re blogging in health related domain, join those groups where people are looking for health related tips, advertise on that place where these people come. You’ll definitely rock.

Always serve only those things which people need!!

4. You should have a good Domain Name

There are plenty of websites and blogs in the world and around a million are getting registered each month. So in this competitive world you need to be unique through which people can easily remember you. If you’re starting a blog for the short term like event blogs, you can have keywords in the domain name else select some name which readers can easily remember. 

Either it should depict what you do or have to be unique. Like bloggingtips clearly says it will say about blogging tips. Whereas domains like TricksRoad or Aha-Now are something which are easy to remember. So always select the unique domain name and you should avoid below things while registering domain name-

  • No Sms words like u for you, 4 for for etc.
  • No numbers
  • Try to avoid hyphens (-)
You can check my details post on How to select best domain name.

5. Focus on Readers

Most of the bloggers especially the newbies focus on visitors and try to get more and more visits to get good income from AdSense, you should initially avoid this. I am not telling you that you should not focus on traffic. You do but focus on the contents more.

Focus on readers rather to have more page views. Write engaging contents and that content which solve other’s problem. If you’re able to do so, traffic will automatically come. And then you would be easily able to convert your visitors into loyal readers.

6. You need to be Social

Initially I too had this misconception that I’ll get the traffic from Google and other search engines but within few weeks I realized it’s almost impossible to get decent traffic initially. This is the truth. Nobody can get lots of traffic at the initial days and hence you need to use some other strategies.

So, how do you get traffic in the short run? You can get through social media. There are many social networking sites to boost traffic and you should work on those sites to get visitors. Join Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Reedit and others to get good amount of traffic. You can read our post, Top 5 Social Networking Sites to Boost Traffic.

Also if you’re willing to spend few dollars you can buy ads on facebook, stumble upon or on other social sites, but if you don’t; you have to make good social media profile. Once you’ve good profile, you can easily get the traffic.

7. Design is Marketing & Marketing is Money

Neat & clean design will lead you to success. Initially when I started TricksRoad; I had a basic design which was ok.

I continued it for a month and later felt that in this competitive environment where around a millions of new sites are getting started each month, ok will not work. You’ve to be the best and then finally came with this, which is good. Isn’t it?

You should have a design which can make money for you. You need one which can drive traffic to your site and hence can lead to money. You can refer my details post on How to select effective templates for blogs and websites.

8. Long Content still works

Long content has always been a key of success and will be. Google or any other search engines still value a lot for the lengthy articles over the short articles.

Google has recently launched an in depth article section on their search result.Also the best online marketing person in the world Neil Patel says the more the content length is the more attention you get. You can check his in depth analysis on content length here.


I haven’t seen a small article went viral. Always you’ll find those articles which are at least 1200 or more viral on the internet. This is not just for the sake of length. This says while writing the post, a well research has been done and so can solve the problem in a better way.

So, you should also be ready to write the long articles if you want to get visible in search engines. You can see in the above figure, all those posts those are in top 10 are of length more than 2000 words.

9. Personal branding is essential

It has been seen that Google prefer personal branding more. You can get this idea from their social site Google+ where they focus more on the personal branding of author. So this is the time to show person behind the great content, site and business.

In fact this helps a lot. If you show your picture on the blogs, your visitor gets an idea about your personality and this helps a lot in the interaction. You should spend equal time in building the site and building your personal brand too.

If you’re only focusing on building and branding of your blog and site, no doubt people will have a good image about your blog and they will visit you often. But this will not help you a lot. 

Now suppose you’re starting a new site, you’ve to work again from scratch to make it famous. But if from the start of first blog itself, you’re working on personal branding as well you won’t have to work that much and your name and image will be enough for your readers to visit to your new venture. Neil Patel, Dino Dogan and Harsh Agarwal are the live example of this.

So it’s the time to show your face if till now you haven’t. I’ve seen many bloggers using the name as Admin, what exactly this mean. This clearly shows either you’re not willing to come outside or you’re not sure about the thing you do. And if you’re not sure how can others. Believe me you’ll get lot of benefits of personal branding.

Also, try to keep same pic everywhere starting from your blog to social sites. I agree this is bit difficult but this will help to identify you by your visitors and will add an extra point in your branding.

10. Monetization Techniques

Last but most important point while planning to start a blog. Ultimately you want to make blogging as your career and want a full time income from this. So you need to plan everything pretty well. Like choose only that niche from where you can earn money else later you’ll find bit difficult to earn.

Be sure about the monetization techniques that you’re going to use in near future to earn from your blog. You can check my article on different ways to make money from your blog. Here I have listed around 19 real and proven methods to earn from blog.
