You must have heard from a lot of people saying that hardworking is the key to success.
But I need to tell you that it is completely wrong.
You don’t need to work hard but should work smart.
Now, you must be thinking Why? Right?
B’cause blogging is all about working in the right direction and you can succeed without much working, so, you never need to work a lot what you need is little but effective working.
Note – Ya, I know that you will also get success from hardworking but that would come much later than smart working.
How to do smart working instead of hardworking?
Well, you already know this. Right?
But here comes my working tips that you may or may not know on this.
1. Always Plan Your Next Day!
Planning your next day is the best thing for any blogger as it helps you to do only the important things and thus, less distraction and procrastination.
So, How to plan?
It’s as easy as making a plan for going on a trip.
As before going you would first create a list of important places to visit with priority decreasing downwards.
The same you need to do here.
Plan your day, do the most important thing in the morning and the less important at any suitable time in the rest of day.
Now, again you would be thinking that why do important thing in the morning? Why not do it after noon? Right?
Well, it is because you are fresh and is most productive in the morning as compared to any time.
So, whatever you would do in the morning you would give your 100% even if you don’t want to.
Now, say with me. I need a Plan but don’t just say convert it into reality now and see the benefit of planning.
2. Spy on your Competitors!
Bill Gates has said that your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.
Now, in blogging it would be like,
Your Competitors are your greatest source of learning.
B’cause whenever you don’t have anything to write or a new source for creating back link your competitors will help you on this.
Well, not directly because you would take help from them without even asking it is like learning. Right?
But how this point would be beneficial in smart working?
Well, as you can have quality post from them and source of quality backlinks from them (using Alexa).
But keep this in mind that you should never plagiarism instead use the same keywords and have traffic. Now, you know this. Right?
3. Don’t Fool Google!
If you would ever, mark my words, even try to fool Google than keep this in mind that you are in reality is fooling yourself.
Fooling Google = Getting Penalized by it = Nothing Left
So, even if you would try to fool Google than even hardworking would not help you.
4. Don’t just follow bloggers!
I have seen many, many bloggers only following other bloggers and not doing exactly what they are telling you.
Why should you do it?
As it is smart working because they have done hardworking to get to know the important things that you would not know.
And if they are telling you this than why not taste the benefit of their hard work.
5. Less is More!
In blogging, in almost everything related to it less is more.
Whether you want to create backlinks, want to create content, want to improve design in everything less is more.
As 2 back links from any highly reputed source is better than even 1000 back links from a low reputed blog/website.
As one, 600 words post is better than 3 posts of 200 words.
And not working much on design is better than completely changing it. Right? (Well, I think so).
