We are back with another internet marketing expert interview. Today we are glad to have Nikhil Kumar Saini with us. Nikhil is young, dynamic and very knowledgeable internet marketer from Jaipur. Within a year he has managed to create a good Brand Name for his blog MyQuickIdea.com.
(The following Interview is conducted by Vineet Gupta from Mavis Edutech)
Hey, Nikhil, great to have you @ Mavis Edutech 🙂
1) Please tell our readers about yourself, your educational background and MyQuickIdea?
Hey, First of all, a big thank for allowing me to get introduced to your blog audience. I’m Nikhil, working at myqiuckidea.com. I’m a full-time blogger and hustling to peruse blogging as a full-time career. My quick idea was started on 11 May 2015.
It has been a year to it and growing gradually. I never thought of being a blogger in my life. I did so many things so far in my life. Tried so many businesses and got success in all of them. But those were not getting me satisfaction. Since I’m into blogging, it’s getting me full of freedom and the very most thing is wisdom.
2) Walk us through the step-by-step process that you went through to get to where you are today. What was the first thing you did? Next?
I took a domain and hosting. Yeah, if you choose to blog as a career, you have to take it seriously. Just share the quality well research keyword based posts. Most bloggers start writing without targeting any profitable keyword. That’s not the right way.
From the very first day of my blogging, I did keyword research and wrote the posts around. The promotional activities are also crucial. You need to promote your content among the people. I have joined different blogging communities, social networking sites to promote my content.
I started making connections with the people. I have followed 60:40 rule. Like 60% promotion and 40% content. If people are not consuming your content, then it doesn’t hold any value. Apparently, I was working for organic traffic. I did comments on my blogs every day that improved my visibility on the crowded blogosphere.
You can use my personal commenting blogs list and blog title generator that I prefer for use. I would say one thing only. Write highly research content on your blog. If once a reader comes on your, he or she should get converted into your permanent readers. I also worked on the layout of my blog.
I just kept it updated with few compelling design, but not very frequently. The time differences between alterations of themes were quite long. I was consistently publishing different types of content on my blog like videos, blogging journeys, entrepreneurship articles, interviews, etc. Such sort of articles helped me drawing the attention of both bloggers and entrepreneurs.
3) Awesome info Nikhil!
How did you live through those first few months?
I’m into content marketing since 2014. Earlier I was working in a company. Later, I left the job in 2015 and started blogging. At the beginning, it was really difficult to manage the expenses.
I was running My quick idea along with content writing services that I am still offering on my blog. I was making only 3k-4k/month. That was enough for me to keep all the things running well.
4) Hmm, you had gone through tough time.
What is your Goal from Internet marketing?
My goal is to spread awareness among the people. I believe in combined growth. I do help other bloggers and ask for help at times. I do offer lots of services on my blog. So my main motive is to grow my service business as well as I’m trying hands into other things to make money online.
You must have different earning sources while you work online. You don’t know when a single source stops you making money.
5) Which is your main income stream and how much time are you devoting every day to get the desired results?
My services are the main income stream for me. Moreover, I get my income from product promotion, referral for the product, etc. I am working like 14 hours a day.
6) 14 hours a day. GREAT! And some people expect overnight success!
What are 3 hard to spot, but crucial mistakes an online marketer should avoid?
Yup. Very nice question. I have three things straight to the point.
- As a beginner, starting multiple blogs at a time
- Mismanagement and not being accountable for each activity
- Focusing on the money aspect of the blogging only
7) With so many people willing to start their 1st Blog, What advice you have for them?
Go with your passion. People who are writing on blogging aren’t only bloggers on the earth. Start with your own inspiration. Write in the niche you got expertise in. The money will flow to your way, but have to be patient. Don’t try to be an expert in everything. Just take step by step approach.
We learn via a process. No one becomes successful in blogging overnight. Make big dreams and stick with them. Be specific in that goal. If you want to make it big out of your blog then define how much you want to make, like $10,000, $5,000. Whatever be it? It should be specific.
8) If a kid walked up to you asking for your advice in online marketing and you only had a few minutes to give ‘em your best tip, what would it be?
Everything is open and freely available on the internet. Just go there learn and implement things. Don’t get fascinated by seeing scams. Get in touch with the real stuff and people. Rest, I’m here to help you.
9) Anything Else You Would Like to Add?
Guys keep sharing quality content and add value to the blogosphere. If I’m doing something wrong, then please let me know. If you like my content on My quick idea, just show your love, share my content. At last, thank you again Vineet for getting me such a wonderful opportunity.
Thank You so much Nikhil for your time. Wish you great success ahead 🙂
