Mistakes I Made That You Shouldn’t (MAKE)

Myself am still figuring how to get better at it everyday to get the attention of my audience and most importantly staying true to my PASSION. Why I said that is because when you focus on what the audience want, sometimes they tend to make you create contents you’re not passionate about thereby making you run out of ideas which leads to inconsistency. 

 Mistakes I made that you should avoid…

Here are some common mistakes I made that you should avoid!.

CHOOSING MY NICHE       

As a newbie and all passionate to start my own blog, I wanted a platform where I can write myself to content but guess who my role model was? LINDA IKEJI ! No doubt lindaikejisblog.com has made a big name for herself in the Blogging industry but was she the right Mentor I’ve chosen for myself? NO! 

It made me go into the Entertainment NICHE instead, I started copying contents to post instead of creating mine because as an entertainment blogger. You’ll need to possess this stalking ability to be able to know what’s going on in the industry. Keep ears on ground for the latest occurrence, so you can be the first to blog about it. Thereby making you the primary source to other bloggers. Which is the area I sucked at!. It became time consuming, as entertainment Niche requires your 24/7 online attention.

So before you start, make research on the Niche you’re passionate about for consistency and good content creation. 

2. FINDING MY BRAND NAME 

Again, LINDA IKEJI did me hard on this one; smiles. Without further thoughts I decided to also craft my name as ‘VICTORIA EJEH’s Blog’. You can see that there’s no authenticity in that. 

So in 2019, a need arised for me to change my web host. Then I needed a new name and a fresh start. You can imagine how that feels, well that’s blogging for you. I have come to learn that you don’t become a blogging guru at once, you grow through it. 

With the help of my auntie, VEENA’S CORNER was birthed and I don’t see it changing in years to come. Because the name fits into any NICHE I’m in now or  decide to go into in FUTURE. 

 My Brand Logo

So again, before you go to the next stage which is launching your blog, search thoroughly for a unique and resounding Brand name that leaves a touch of you wherever it goes.

3. WHERE TO LAUNCH MY BLOG

Without having deep knowledge about which website to host my blog, I started blogging on Blogspot.com because it is totally free. But with time I began to learn about it and became aware that I don’t actually own it. It is a free platform that can be taken down any freaky time. 

The next step I took while getting a domain name was to host my site on WordPress. You can see the benefits of hosting your site on WordPress Here .

This is helping me a lot with the templates, plugins and lots more. Consider launching your blog on WordPress when you are ready to begin your blogging journey. 

Will do an update to this post in the long-run. 

In the meantime, those were the basic mistakes I made when I started blogging that I think you shouldn’t make. But hey, mistakes make you advanced in experience. So just start blogging those awesome ideas you have locked up in your head. START YOUR JOURNEY!

Growing organic followers for your personal or business page haven’t been easy, if you search on google you will see Iconosquare.com

In his article he mentioned  9 Ways to Grow Your Instagram Organically.

Note that these steps requires patience to grow your followers because it’s the proven steps that is approved by Instagram. Using apps like Nutrino +,which only works on android and not friendly to iOS users is used to gain followers and likes. But as usual, I have come to learn that when you use those apps to  get followers and likes, you are damaging your page instead of growing it. Because Instagram does not recognize those followers and likes, because they are foreign likes and different from your geolocation. You end up damaging your account whereby, you can not be verified and I’m sure you don’t want that. You have a large number of followers but you can not be verified, so my advice to you is to stop using that and start growing your followers the new trending way.

Read below you will see the steps I’m using to gain my Instagram organically.

This new method of gaining followers was introduced to me by my friend and I have also introduced a lot of my friends to it. I have introduced others who asked about it, I gave them the steps that I’m using to gain my followers.
These article is for everybody, I’m using it to invite you all to join the train. Keep reading to get the trick in gaining 10,000 followers in just 1 month. 
Here’s the thing, these platforms that help you gain your Instagram followers organically on Instagram without paying a dime was established by few individuals, from there it began to grow into social media influencers. These platforms are solely created to follow each other, you follow and get followed. That is the golden rule, but you know some pages don’t have good contents. So you will likely be selective with the pages you follow back and also make your contents great to retain the followers you gain.

The gaining process is quite simple, follow the step by step instructions below to grow your Instagram followers. 

Step 1: First you need to visit any IG page that does Instagram gain. (Examples at the end of this article).
Where you’ll need to follow the page, then turn on the post notifications to get notifications on any new post made on that page.
Otherwise you can choose to visit the page each time you want to gain, but that would be stressful for you.

Step 2: Once you’ve followed up and turned notifications on, you will be prompted to a WhatsApp link on the profile screen. This is where you will click and get directed to their WhatsApp contact where you’ll need to ask the admin to save your contact name and you save theirs. After that, you will be able to see their status for other link posts featuring different users used to gain more followers on your Instagram page.

Step 3: Now you will be presented with links via your WhatsApp status or post notifications on Instagram from time to time, according to each gaining strategy.
Note: You will need to pay attention to the timing to make your followers gain effective everyday. If you do so, 300-400 followers a day is guaranteed!

Step 4: When the link drops, follow at least 20-50 of those that like the post to avoid getting blocked by Instagram. Also as you like and comment you get followed, follow back the page you like or have good contents. The trick there is that, you like on time! Immediately the post is dropping you like before you comment. If you wait after 10-15mins after posting you don’t get much followers, you get little but not much. So that is why it is necessary to like on time.

Step 5: Lastly and most importantly, Instagram monitors this kinds of accounts. Hence avoid commenting words like, ifb, fff, emojis without words and also not more than one comment per post. If you are not careful Instagram will block your account permanently or disable it for some minutes or days. As Instagram consider such actions to be spam/bot . So these are the steps to growing your page, if you like it you go through the stress but the increase in number will be your consolation.
So that’s for gaining, but that is not all for keeping your page active and your followers glued to you. You can get them to follow you, but you can not get them to stay with you if your contents is not good. So work on your contents and keep an active followers.
