5 Mistakes Newbie Bloggers Need To Fix ASAP

Mistakes-Newbie-Bloggers-Make

Blogging acts as the finest approach to drive website visitors and convert traffic into sales and leads. Yet, bloggers not having plans to grow their blog or to create content or to gain more leads find it difficult sometimes.

Here, we’ll talk about 5 beginning blogging mistakes and how to fix them. We should know how to have an easier blogging life:

1) Not Publishing Content Consistently

When running a blog, it is required to post regularly. When publishing content consistently, you keep your readers coming back for more.

You can plan your content chart for an entire month. Begin with creating an outline; all together, plan for the content that you want to share on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

It’s important to maintain posting frequency; otherwise, your target audience will be lost. Make sure that you are ahead of your content schedule as it keeps you safe when something unexpected appears or you are busy with other things.


2) Unwarranted emails with no valuable information

It’s a common and one of the biggest mistakes on the part of newbie bloggers when they forgot to collect e-mail addresses of their readers from the very beginning.

Email addresses keep you in touch with your readers and also, alert them to your new posts on blog.
It’s vital to consider that while holding an email list, not to besiege them. Unnecessary messages are another regular blogging mistake that newer bloggers make.

Tools like MailChimpCovertKit, etc. can be used for getting free mailing lists.


3) Using Images with no permission

Using images that you have no consent to use is a mistake. Additionally, deal with the dimensions of the photographs. When using very large images for your posts, your website will take too long to load.

To fix this problem, you can use photo editing software programs like Canva, PicMonkey, and iPhoto which are available online. You can resize images by importing them to the above-mentioned software and resize it to make it equal to the width of your required blog post column.


4) Not Engaging with your readers

Interacting with your readers is an incredible approach to build a relationship with them as it helps developing crusaders for you.

At the point when not interacting with your readers, it proves to be terrible in blogging. You should set aside opportunity to respond to your readers’ comments. Make sure replying to each and every comment made on your blog and on your social media channels.

Improving communication lets you increase daily visitors coming to your blog.


5) Lack of promotion of every single blog post

It’s another mistake when you lack in informing your readers and others about your post. Though, you content is of finest quality, but when not being promoted; nobody will get to know about it. Though, content is the key to your blog, you also have to let your readers know through promotion.

What to do?

  • Email your subscribers: In the event that you have a decent post, make a point to email your mailing posting when you distribute it.
  • Cross promotion: You may ask authors of blogs to promote your blog. This will help you to gain more readers.
  • Social media: Make sure to be present on one or two social media channels and promote your blogs on each of them.

15 Social Media Updates You May Have Missed in November

Social Network Applications

Facebook

Facebook Updates Events App with Restaurants, Bars, and More

To help you discover bars, restaurants, and nearby attractions, Facebook rebranded its standalone Events app as “Facebook Local”. Facebook Local combines events and permanent places to a single search engine powered by Facebook’s 70 million business pages plus reviews and friends’ checkins.

Announcing New Tools for the Creator Community

Facebook announced two initiatives to help creators unleash their creativity: an app that helps creators manage their presence on Facebook and a central destination where creators can get the resources they need to improve and grow.

The Facebook Creator app is a one stop shop for creators of all kinds, to help take their passions to the next level. With the app, creators can easily create original video, go live with exclusive features, and connect with their community on Facebook — all from their pocket.

Facebook for Creators is a new website where creators can find resources and tips on how to create great videos, connect with fans, and grow on Facebook.

Facebook Introduces Messenger Chat Plugin for Business Websites

Facebook has revealed details about version 2.2 of its Messenger platform, which comes with a highly requested customer chat plugin. With Messenger Platform 2.2, Facebook aims to help businesses and developers “reach their customers in new and engaging ways.” The newest way for businesses to engage with customers is with Facebook Messenger’s new chat plugin.

Facebook Introduces a Simple Polling Feature With Support for GIFs

Facebook has brought a new feature to pages and profiles allowing users to post simple polls, and also, they can add GIFs to those.

Polls take account of 1 question and 2 choices of answers, similar to the new Instagram polls that were introduced recently.

To create a poll, users need to create a status update first, scrolling to the bottom to find the poll option. Then, users are presented with several text boxes where they can enter your question and the two possible answers.

Instagram

Expanding Uploads from your Camera Roll

Starting Nov 7, users can add photos and videos to your story, even if you took them more than 24 hours ago. Now, you’ll be able to easily find and choose anything from your camera roll and share it instantly with friends.

Just like you normally would, swipe up from the camera to open your camera roll or tap the gallery icon. Scroll to choose your photo or video, and tap to select what you want to share.

Stories and Save on Mobile Web

Starting Nov 16, users can experience instagram.com in two new ways: by creating stories and saving posts you like.

You’ll see the camera icon at the top left of your feed. Tap it to take a photo or to add a photo from your library. You can also add text and change the text color. When you’re done, post it to your story by tapping “Share to Your Story”.

Introducing New Stickers for Thanksgiving

November 17, Instagram launched a new set of stickers to help celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States.

From expressive turkeys and decorative gourds to a pumpkin spice latte for warming up as autumn draws to a close, these stickers help you add a little extra creativity to the moments you share throughout the holiday.

New! Request to Join a Friend’s Live Video

Going live with a friend is now even easier. Starting today, when a friend is live, you can let them know you’d like to join in the fun and hang out live together.

When watching a friend’s live video, simply tap the “Request” button in the comments section. You’ll see a confirmation that your friend has accepted your request, and you’ll have a moment to prepare.

Once you’re live, the screen will split in half so you can hang out live with your friend. You can leave your friend’s live video at any time, making it easy to join for a quick hello or a longer chat.

Remix Photos From Friends in Direct

Starting Nov 28, you can remix your friends’ photos — then send them back for fun conversations.
When viewing a photo message from a friend, tap the camera icon at the bottom and capture a reply. Your reply includes a sticker of what you’re replying to. Move and resize it, and add your own twist with stickers, text and drawings. You can remix photos back and forth for a fun visual of your conversation.

LinkedIn

LinkedIn introduces Career Advice feature

To make it easier for members to connect across the LinkedIn network with one another for lightweight mentorship opportunities, we’re launching a new Career Advice feature. Whether you’re looking for best practices for approaching a new project, advice for starting a business, or intel on switching industries, Career Advice can help you connect with the right person.

Get data on your employees’ sharing behavior

The networking site ‘LinkedIn’, is analyzing users’ sharing habits and offering to send its findings to their employers.

This includes the amount of content people are posting, and the impact these updates are having on “content engagement”.

Snapchat

Introducing the new Snapchat

On Nov 29, 2017, a new and improved Snapchat has been introduced for users organized around their relationships and personalized just for them.

The new Snapchat separates the social from the media. This means that the Chats and Stories from users’ friends are on the left side of Snapchat, and the Stories from publishers, creators, and the communities are on the right.

Also, there is “Dynamic Friends Page,” invented to make Snapchat feel even more personal. The new Friends page to the left of the camera displays users’ friends based on the way they communicate with them.

Snapchat Introduces A New Ad Format: Promoted Stories

Snapchat is rolling out a new ad format just in time for the holiday season: Promoted Stories, which will let advertisers pay to push their story to more users.

A Story, for those who may have forgotten, is a collection of photos and videos stitched together into one extended thread with each part of the story disappearing 24 hours after it was shared. It’s one of Snap’s most popular products, and the same product that Instagram successfully copied a little over a year ago.

Anyone on Snapchat can create a Story, including brands or businesses, but they are only visible to the account’s followers. Promoted Stories, though, are country-wide, which means a brand could push their ad to all Snapchat users in the U.S., for example.

Twitter

Twitter Doubles Tweet Character Limit to 280

Twitter has announced doubled its limit for tweets from 140 to 280 characters, a bid to pull in more users and boost engagement at the social network.

The roll-out includes all languages except Japanese, Korean and Chinese, in which space limitations have not been an issue, Twitter said. Twitter has limited its users to 140 characters per tweet since its launch in 2006. According to Twitter’s data, just 5% of tweets were longer than 140 characters, and 2% were over 190 characters. Only 1% of tweets hit the 280 character limit during Twitter’s testing period.

YouTube

Expanding Community on YouTube

Community has always been at the heart of YouTube. From supporting each other, to touring the world, to making each other laugh, you and your audience have established strong bonds on YouTube. This connection goes beyond video, so about a year ago we invited a few creators to test out a new place to connect with fans in-between uploads with polls, pictures, text, GIFs, and more. YouTube called this place Community. Creators have been doing amazing things with it.

The launch of the Reels beta, a new ad format was mentioned here to all creators with over 10,000 subscribers. The idea is to introduce a new video format on YouTube that lets creators express themselves and engage fans without having to post a full video.

4 Super-Useful AdWords Features You Can’t Afford To Miss



Google has released several new AdWords features throughout 2017 which are in fact new ways for advertisers to bump up their campaigns. Yet, here in this post we’ll talk about the 4 latest and super-useful AdWords features offered to help advertisers perk up the performance of their paid search campaigns.

Take a look at the below mentioned updates and know everything about implementing these throughout your AdWords account:

#1 Promotion Extensions

People are continually looking for deals, whether it’s for a discount on holiday gifts or a cheaper flight. In fact, 7 out of 10 internet users look for sales or discounts before visiting a store. To help attract these deal-seeking customers with the latest offers, AdWords brought promotion extensions.
This feature makes it easy for advertisers to keep their promotions up to date without the need to create new ads. They also free up the rest of their ad for more unique content, like the brand terms or a clear call to action. Whether they’re sharing a discount code or simply sharing a site-wide discount, these ad extensions will send their CTR’s skyrocketing.



For example, if you’re a shoe store, you might use promotion extensions to show a “30% off” promo code on all Black Friday orders. You can also make these types of seasonal offers more prominent in your ad by selecting one of 12 occasions, like Black Friday or Back-to-school.

#2 Ad Variations

Ad variations offered in the new AdWords experience lets advertisers test changes across their text ads at scale in a fast and easy way.

With the update, advertisers are able to test ad copy changes across their entire account in just a few minutes, which previously took hours of manual work. This means they get to quickly test ad copy and make improvements that result in better ad performance.



For example, you may want to see how “Happy Holidays” performs when used in your text ads. With ad variations, you can test this change across thousands of ads in just a few clicks. In fact, some advertisers have set up variations for more than 1 million ads in less than a minute.

 Within the ad variants interface, you can:

  • Find and replace certain key words (or keywords, for that matter) in your ads
  • Update entire textual components (headlines, description, paths)
  • Invert your headlines

#3 Custom Intent Audiences

To help advertisers reach I-want-to-buy shoppers, AdWords has rolled out custom intent audiences for the Google Display Network. Custom intent audiences make it easy for advertisers to reach people who want to buy the specific products they offer–based on data from their campaigns, website and YouTube channel.

For example, if you’re a travel agency offering holiday getaways, Google could automatically create an audience of people shopping for “all-inclusive ski resorts” or “flights to Palm Springs.” We’ll then show you reach and performance estimates for each audience, so you can plan your campaign with precision.

#4 Gmail Remarketing

Gmail ads are interactive ads at the top of people’s inboxes. When someone clicks a collapsed Gmail ad, it expands just like an email does. The expanded ad, which is the size of an email, can include images, video, or embedded forms. Furthermore, the capacity to remarket and, all the more vitally, do as such powerfully by means of Gmail is exorbitantly advantageous for advertisers.
