Experts tips – Wade Harman from Wadeharman.com

Hi Wade,
1. What is the biggest challenge of blogging? How do you organize your plans to do consistent blogging?

One of the biggest challenges in blogging is building trust with your readership. Until you have that, you don’t have anything because until people start to trust you and what you say, you won’t become successful. Always write to give them the best information possible and try to help. I would tell someone that wants to be consistent at blogging to set a schedule. You don’t have to write every day of the week to become successful at blogging.

Yes, it’s better for the search engine when you write more, but one cannot write a great post every day of the week. Sure, you may get by with that for a few days or even weeks, but at some point, you’re going to come against the ever popular writer’s block and then what? You’ve just messed up your schedule! New bloggers need only write one post per month. Work on building your audience on social during the times you’re not writing and building relationships. People that are established like me can get by with writing one post per week. But whatever schedule you set for yourself, stick with it!

 

2. Driving traffic is the biggest concern for every blogger. How you’re getting traffic to your blog? Means, reveal your traffic secrets. Also, tell how you’re getting ideas to update your blog.

One of the best sources of traffic for me is social media. I don’t really care about SEO tricks because the search engine isn’t what’s paying my bills. It’s the people. So I go where the people are, and that’s on social. Some of my ideas that I have when I write a blog post come to me at different times, that’s why I like using a tool called EverNote to capture any blog idea that I might have. Whether I’m on a plane or mowing the lawn when the idea hits me, I can write it down to be researched later.

 

3. I see your activeness in G+, I like it very much. Moreover, it inspires me to work and learn a lot. Can you explain the importance of staying active in G+ and how to get a relationship with influential bloggers over there?

G+ is a social platform of a different quality. It’s not like Facebook or Twitter where it seems that people have a hard time seeing your content. If all of your followers were online at the time you published a post on G+, they would all see it. That’s the simple beauty of G+ and that’s why I like it. Google Plus is also a conversational platform. It’s where people come to build relationships and have discussions about certain topics. I’m proof of that, but you have to treat it with respect. Don’t go dumping links and leaving. No one likes that at all! G+ can really help you succeed if you do it the right way. The simple fact that both sides, the influencer’s and the regular people are all listening to you if you have something important to say.

 

4. How did you monetize your blog? Are you an Affiliate Marketer? If you’re familiar with AM, let us educate with a brief summary.

Before I started WadeHarman.com I had a site called BloggersMakeMoney.com and I sold ad spots on that site, affiliate links, and the usual ways of monetization. Now that I solely own WadeHarman most of the money I make comes from other ventures as WadeHarman.com is more of an informational site for my readers.

I am an affiliate marketer I guess. However, I don’t practice affiliate marketing as hard core as I used to. Most of the products I promote on WadeHarman.com (if any) are usually things that my friends have or products that I know will benefit my readers.

In affiliate marketing, one has the opportunity to make a lot of money with products they know nothing about, however, that doesn’t give you free reign to promote those products. I have always said that if you haven’t used the product personally don’t try to sell it. Remember the trust factor from above? People learn to trust you because you always tell the truth about things. If you’re trying to sell something that you have never used nor tried, that’s not being honest. It always comes back to what the reader will benefit from.

 

5. Why it is important to build reliable backlinks for a blog? What are the best ways to do so?

I could care less about backlinks. Search is something that is always changing and one could drive themselves crazy trying to chase it. I don’t even waste my time. But I would say that the most reliable backlink is the one where other people link back to your articles from high ranking sites. Give it time, you will start to see reliable people linking to you after a while.

 

6. What would be the future of blogging? Will it be considered as a good profession? Do you have any other job other than blogging?

For my future, blogging is all there is. I don’t have any other job, nor would I want any other job but being a blogger. I love it! I love to write and I love to share with people my knowledge about different things. The future of blogging, for me anyway, looks bright and has a long and prosperous future.

If you’re reading this post right now and you want to succeed at blogging and make the future look bright for you as well, then you have to keep at it! You have to understand that if you’re just starting out, you’re not going to see anything in the form of income for quite a while. You have to be a peace with working for free until you get established. This is why the future of blogging for most people looks bleak. They give up because success isn’t right around the bend for them. Only the true hard-core and dedicated people will succeed at this. If you want it, it will come. But you have to be patient.

 

7. Share some of the best social media & SEO tools that you’re using

Some of my favorite tools that I use are at Wade Harman.com and I use these every day. They give me traffic all day long and they also help me sustain my social media as well. In my opinion, these are the best tools for my business. You will come across other tools that you like for yourself and when you find them you will know. Each tool is different, but these are the best for me.

 

Your Favourite quote, favourite blogs and message for my readers to make money online.

My favorite quote is this: “Be a hero to one individual at a time and stop marketing to the masses!”
My favourite blogs are avgjoegeek.net, plusyourbusiness.com, thesocialmediahat.com, jennstrends.com, and socialmediaexaminer.com

My message to your readers would be this:

Just blog. Be social. Find your social media site that you love and stick with it. Don’t spread yourself too thin by trying to have a strong social presence on all the major social sites. That’s not a good strategy. Pick one and stick with it. Don’t just dump your links, be conversational and be helpful to people. Remember it’s a social site. The last thing I would say that the funny thing about blogging is some of the best promotions that you can do for yourself is when you’re NOT promoting yourself. Helping others is the strongest tip I could give anyone.

Why? Because people remember that person that has taken the time to help them. Do that enough and you’ll have a small army flooding your site after a while. That’s why it takes so long to succeed at blogging. You’re on social trying to build a reputation of honesty and helpfulness with these followers. You’re building trust.

Thank You for spending your precious time to answer my questions Wade Harman and I hope it would engage and help my readers.

    I liked Wade Harman’s statement

    It’s same as what i believe.

    Good to see you here man
    It’s been quite long since we spoke to each other. I completely lost track until your last pm to me on Twitter. Before then, I didn’t know you moved to a more personal domain.

    I’ll surely be an avid reader as soon as I get a few things cleared off my hands.

    Congratulations on this interview and do have a wonderful week you both

  6. Hello Nirmala maam and Wade Harman, lovely tips I must say. Wade, I frankly say I had not known of your site and you but I proudly say niw that I am happy tgat I knew about you , thanks to Nirmala maam.
    The tools suggested by you Wade are really nice though I use some I am gonna use the rest.

    One thing I completely agree with you is about caring less for building backlinks. why waste time in such thing that changes more than the times we change out dresses, instead concentrate on what we are good at i.e., writing great content that will automatically be linked by other sites no matter we do SEO or not.

    Thank you Nirmala madam for having Wade and letting him share his awesome ideas with us.

  7. Hi Nirmala
    First of all big congrats on conducting such a brilliant interview where every question you asked did hold several queries of many many struggling bloggers. Who among us is not very much worried about the future of blogging as you asked him.
    Two points of view of Harman impressed me a lot. ONe is if you are a consistent blogger then future of blogging is so bright otherwise it is so bleak.
    Second point is his advice not to use social media just to dump your links there and go away which shows your sole purpose is just to drop the links and nothing else. This is not sharing media. It is social media and we should keep this fact in our mind while working on it.
    Once again thank you for writing this post after deep research to develop very relevant questions and then developing this whole post into a perfect format. It does have lot of value and I learnt a lot of new things from it.

    1. Hi Muba Mi,
