    Being a Food blogger has a lot of plusses. You get to share your talents!

    One of the challenges bloggers have to face is on expanding their audience, but the market these days is so saturated that it’s very difficult to get your name out there.

    The best way to get on to the Blog market is, to look out for the bloggers in the market, I understand they are your competitors, but trust me it’s a great source that could help, it could get you and your Blog on air, ultimately reaching your audience.

    So to get going, join a Blogging community as per your niche!

    Especially, if you are a newbie blogger or are looking to grow your blogging business and are not sure on how to start…..

    Start from here…

    Find yourself a blogging community, that’s the first and the foremost step in growing your blog. It’s like reaching out your blogs to your audience, using the blog community power!

    Remember that every single blogger started off small and have reached out large, and so can you!

    Before you move on to something else, creating that tribe around you is imperative to growing your blog.

    Let’s dig a bit into who or what is a Blogging Community…

    A blogging community is the one which focuses on blogging itself….well, I know you know that!

    Making it more sensible, Blogging communities are a collection of individual blogs over a single space, where you get a practical support in terms of may be templates or image sharing or How to post videos while some offer a chance to chat with other bloggers out there, discussing on what works and what doesn’t.

    So summing up everything together, the result that comes out is that Bloggers need other bloggers!

    Okay…So we’re clear why do we need to set a connection in the blogging community!

    So now that you know why it’s important, let’s learn how could we find it and take advantage of it

    1

    Read and comment on other blogs from your niche and be active

    Always keep reading and commenting on the blogs over the community blogs, not only the blog owners but also the other blog readers cum writers scroll through the comments, and this gets you noticed.

    You are now in the picture! You are now ready to develop good terms with bloggers who are now apt to share your blogs with their followers.

    And what do you see….?? You see your blogs getting noticed and shared too!!

    2

    Follow and comment on social media accounts in your niche

     Always follow bloggers on social media platforms, comment on the bloggers with whom you share a connection, they are likely to follow you back hopefully returning the same.

    Putting up random comments like “great info!” or “yummy recipe!” won’t take you very far.

    Let it be genuine.

    Always be over social media groups and indulge in social sharing!

    3

    Offer Guest posts being written by you….yeah!!

     Guest posts are like using a co-bloggers platform and sharing your content over their platform, yes you can involve in doing this as well, and it is quite helpful.

    You can also offer, sharing their content over your platform.

    Remember, this could be done with relatively small blog platforms who would benefit from guest posting.

    Your blogger friend’s audiences are noticing you through this.

     So share your knowledge.

    4 Join in On Link-ups and Round-Ups

     You could allow other bloggers to include a photo and caption at the bottom of the post, of Course, something related to that theme.

     When readers scroll through the host blog (or blogs), they may be interested in your post and click through to your blog. You never know who might become a new reader!

    Link-up etiquette, make sure to always credit the hosts.

    Involve into round-ups, get your blog on other blogger’s radars.

    It also establishes some goodwill and hopefully you sharing other people’s content will, in turn, result in them sharing yours.

    Make sure to tag other bloggers in your social statuses if you include them in a round-up!

    Some tips on when trying to find like-minded bloggers:-

    • Shop Around

    Find your people and not just your readers.

    Make contacts with people who come from your niche, someone with whom you can share tips and tricks and someone who can support you.

    Make contact with people in your paddling pool.

    • Be active

    Ask questions, offer feedback, encourage and continue collaborating.

    Share blogs and don’t forget back-linking the blogs to the original blogs.

    Link-ups are resources for you to find other bloggers in your niche.

    • Play Fair

    Make some new friends and colleagues, get along with some new readers and just keep growing. While amidst of this, don’t forget on returning the support.

    Make sure you are giving something in return, don’t just take support and run away, it’s like being mean spirited!

    Help others too! That is the true value of networking!

    Grow your network, and add value to that network, get support and give support!

    Find your community and make the most out of it!

    Got some questions?? Or is there something you’d like to share about the blog community??

    When marketing your brand online, you actually need to have a website that attracts and converts new customers, and to make this happen, you need to measure the website performance.

    Like if you look back and analyze for how your website is doing? We all go a bit shaky while answering this. Again, if you are not measuring its performance at all, trust me, you won’t be able to answer this question.

    Measuring a websites performance can be tricky yet useful to a great extent. As it is said, one can improve his website by measuring its failures, not just its successes.

    You need to understand specifically what you are measuring, why you are measuring it and how you can improve once you have the measurements.

    It goes without saying, you won’t be able to measure if you don’t know what to measure. A websites performance can be well measured once you establish a clear and a measurable goal.

    Defining a goal for your website lets you create a measurable metric which can be analyzed to check if you are getting the desirable results.

    Set Up Goals

    Make sure you are setting up realistic and measurable goals, Trust me setting up goals is going to help you a lot.

    The progress of your goals and their success keeps you motivated and focused on you business aims.

    Track your goals and objectives

    All set with your goal? Now it’s time to track the progress.

    You need to keep a close eye on what happens online that reflect the success or failure of the goals you have set for your business.

    You need to match your websites performance actions to the goals you have set.

    Don’t just rely on default information obtained from website traffic reports, the number of visitors or the number of leads, sometimes they are just numbers and not your websites progress reports.

    Yeah…You heard it right! Try to dig deeper on what these figures are actually telling you…

    Like the website traffic and the leads generated might be good in numbers but is it actually getting you the right type of visitors and qualified leads? The problem here is these figures don’t accurately represent the effectiveness of your website.

    What should you look for is, are your website visitors acting the way you want them to? Do their website actions relate to your business goals?

    For example, as an employee working at a web agency, I would want people or say freelancers or B2B audiences to fill in my contact forms and get in touch with me for business and to achieve this what processes  have I defined, is actually going to reflect my websites success.

    Here we trying to connect the actions performed on your website to exactly what your business outcome should be.

    Being a Web services offeror, you need to be thorough with the wants of your stakeholders.

    Once you are thorough with this, you will be able to provide them with the right analysis report which would help them realize the progress that they are making towards their business goals.

    Every time we tried working this way, we hit the target! You should definitely try us out! I am sure you won’t be disappointed at all!

    You can share in the comments the interesting analytics insights that worked well for your business, After all, the more you share the more you know!

    Running a blog is not as easy as it sounds, you need to put in a lot of work. Perfecting the recipes to mastering the art of food photography, everything…But after all this you still can sometimes fall short of.

    No that’s not because your recipes are pathetic or your photos are below average, it’s because no one is reaching out to your blogs.

    And yeah…That’s a huge problem!

    But don’t worry, most blogs including food blogs are going through the same, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a way out of this…Of Corse you do!

    What if, you can boost your food blog traffic and make people aware of your business?? Or if you can find ways to automate your business growth?

    You heard it right….You can adapt many such strategies and get things right!

    We have some proven tactics that can help you get out of this successfully. Some are simple while some are difficult to implement, but they are all here and they are assured to help you increase your food blog traffic. You just need to put in some more time and efforts!

    After all, success is the sum of all your efforts!

    Just keep in mind, some techniques take time to come into effect while some may happen overnight….So just be patient.

    Let’s go step by step first, let’s look into how you can bring on more visitors?

    Some techniques may cost money while some are free, from social media, email marketing to SEO techniques, we have it all covered!

    Here’s how you can grow your food blog traffic:

    Get into Social media Marketing

    Social Media is one of the best resources when it comes to reaching out to your target audience, and in the current picture, you’ll find everyone over social media, hence it gets easier to reach out.

    We’ll look onto where and how you can boost your food blogs

    • Make your images beautiful

    Yes, you need a good content, but if the images are equally good you are increasing your share ability chances.

    Especially, when it’s about food visitors they are likely to look on for more images, they are more interested in checking out the images.

    You got to water their mouths! 🙂

    • Don’t forget social share buttons

    Let readers share your content, this leads to higher search engine rankings as well as more social traffic to your blog.

    So let people ‘share’ your content along with ‘Hitting likes’.

    While you enable your readers to share your blog you are essentially disrupting their friends and followers newsfeed and displaying your content.

    • Make a Pinterest profile and join a group board

    Did you know 72% of Pinterest followers are women and the most trending category is “food and Drinks”, yeah you heard it right!!

    By joining group boards, you can reach out to all those people who might be the right fit for your content.

    If you are a food blogger you need to be on this social media today.

    • Use twitter it’s a perfect source

    Twitter is like a cocktail party of social media.

    This is a platform where you can talk to people and get to know them and their interests, you obviously need not promote your food blog right away, see if you can offer any assistance and act accordingly. Try not to annoy them….that is bad!!

    Use the search feature, look out for people who have been tweeting about the  subject that is relevant to your blog, this lets you strike up a conversation directly.

    • Restaurant Food Blogger?? Use Urban spoon

    If your blog mainly consists of restaurant views, then you should add your blog to Urbanspoon.

    Urbanspoon actually has a separate section for restaurant and food blog reviews.

    It’s all yours. It has everything that you need! 🙂

    Keep up your SEO rankings

    Ranking on the search engines gets you to the audience. So you need to be smart on this.

    Let’s check out how you could maintain your google ranks:

    • Your food blog should be self-hosted

    Yes, there are a lot of platforms that get you hosted for free. But in the long run, launching a self-hosted blog would benefit in your site rankings.

    Moreover, you will have a lot of flexibility and more hosting options.

    Let your website be unique and self-standing!

    • Focus on long tail keywords

    Keeping short keywords can put your ranking down.

    For example, a recipe “chicken noodle soup from scratch whole chicken”

    Would be much better than just using “chicken noodle soup”.

    You see the difference? Being specific can rank you higher!

    The more specific you are with your keywords, the less is the competition.

    • Use content delivery network

    A CDN stores your blog images and files in data centers, so whenever you have a site visitor the closest data center loads your stuff quickly.

    What’s more is by speeding up your site, you could rank higher on the search engines.

    • Make your recipes and articles shareable

    Let people share your content!

    Social shares are one among the ranking factors over search engines, it can actually push you with your rankings.

    • Make sure you have your punch words highlighted…You know the heading tag!

    Punch words as in the Keywords, they are the ones who keep you up on the search engines.

    Use Heading tags, bullet points…present your content well!

    This idea of presenting stuff actually leaves a positive impact.

    • Have a mobile friendly food blog

    Don’t forget mobile is the new face of engagement!

    Ensure your food blog is responsive on all platforms.

    • Submit a site map

    Site maps enable the search engines to easily crawl over your blog content and images, and through this your site is indexed on google.

    Keep Email marketing and Newsletters campaigns on your list

    • Attract the visitors

    Offer them free recipes or provide them free guidance, the “Free Stuff” is always attention grabbing. 🙂

    • Offer unique opt-ins for every food blog you post

    Offering something unique with every blog you publish can help you collect email addresses…You know, more subscribers.

    Like for example if your blog is about5 Healthy Replacements for Unhealthy Ingredients” offer a lead magnet by saying you have “recipe ready with the healthy ingredients”, with this you are sure of collecting subscribers.

    • Write impressive emails – especially the subject line

    We already know, we never tend to read on the marketing emails, we just ignore them, but if it has an interesting subject line like……”20 minutes or less- your healthy weeknight meal plan”….I’m sure many of us will click over!

    When it comes to health, people are quite conscious about it…right? So keep it smart!

    Content marketing: Write an amazing content

    No one likes to read anything that is rubbish or irrelevant, provide such content to your visitors that is of true value.

    • Let your content be long…Don’t worry it is okay!

    I know what’s in your mind!

    People usually avoid reading if the content is too long, but that’s not the case always! If it’s relevant and well written, it keeps the user engaged.

    Moreover, it is said that long content blogs are shared more and linked more.

    • Focus more on promoting your content than just writing so much

    It doesn’t matter if you just have 5 blogs, what matters is how convincing is the content and is it reaching into the right hands?

    So spend more time on marketing your content rather than just publishing content.

    Don’t Forget, Quality is more important than Quantity!

    • Find a gap in the market: Check on your Uniqueness

    Spare some time analyzing your forte and how can you utilize your specialty to stand out from the millions of food bloggers.

    Find your unique angle!

    • Indulge into Guest blogging…Yeah, you heard it right!

     Blogging on other people’s website helps you build your brand awareness and provides you more visitors.

     Let your post be informative and incredibly helpful, it’s actually helping you get your brand name out!

    • Master your food photography

    Working on your food photography skills can give a good exposure to your tasty food recipes.  

    If it looks good it feels good!

    Yeah…you have to kinda tempt your audience, by letting them see the amazing food you prepare.

    I have some extra tips for you and they are equally important for your food blog success.

    1. Let the blog be creative and modern

     Before anything else, your blog should be aesthetically appealing.

    If it looks good it keeps people engaged on your site for long.

    Use awesome images, highlight the content, and let the navigation be simple and interactive.

    1. Use the white space concept

    If your site is junky and messy it reduces the readability ratio.

    Use a lot of white space, that lets your readers focus on your content.

    Make them feel good!

    1. Join some other food communities

    If you join some food community groups, you can give some more exposure to your food recipes.

    You can interact, share and also get to know what’s going on!

     Well, that’s it, if you have some questions just drop them in the comments and we’ll get back to you.

    If you find it helpful, Do hit the share button!

    “The more we share the more we have”

    Thanks for reading 🙂

    Share quality content that creates value!

    At times writing blogs can be time-consuming and tiring, you just need to keep reminding yourself that writing is not a race and you need not stress out with that, keep calm and you’ll be good!

    Having a food blog means having a pact with your readers, hence you need to well prepare your blogs.

    Every blogging category has different challenges. As a food blogger, you need to try out different recipes, you may fail but don’t worry, you can always re-do it and you may succeed 🙂

    Working on a food blog is kind of fun, you get to try out different food stuff for just for blog writing inspiration….sound interesting…right?? 😛

    Let’s look on to some ideas on how you can treat yourself to keep up fresh blog ideas:

    1Treat yourself with some amazing food, something exotic and new.

    Take yourself out for a lunch, try out a new restaurant.

    Order on some food stuff that’s looks new on ingredients or has a fancy dish name…something that’s impressive and tastes yum just with the name itself 😛

    Relish the experience and make notes on the flavors, the texture, the aroma…

    Try going out for lunch or dinner once a week, try a different restaurant… Bring alive the foodie in you!

    The food varieties with diverse ingredients, prepared in an unusual way with the perfect dressing and beautiful serving will inspire you to experiment with your food blog, you’ll be fresh with ideas!

    2Keep reading…food articles, recipes, guest posts, comments and more…be updated!

     Try reading with the point of view of a writer, you’ll learn on expressing better.

    Writing about food requires you to have rich sensory description…you need to express the taste through words, the content should be such that is able to define the taste 🙂

    You need to keep reading on your industry so that you could be aware of what’s going on while you’re writing.

    Join online food communities, understand on what people are liking and how are they commenting on various posts, this way you get to know what interest your readers.

    3Challenge yourself- Try out new recipes

    Get out of your comfort zone, try exploring some new recipes, you might fail but you will definitely discover something new.

    You could just visit your local market and pick on some fresh ingredients that you might not try otherwise and come up with something unusual you neva know…. it might work!

    You need to keep experimenting, only then you will come up with something new and better.

    When you are running short of new ideas, don’t worry just look around, you have it all around you,

    You just need to pick them, analyze about them and make it your own.

    Creativity lies within! You just need to figure it out!

    Feel free to add in your comments, what did you like in particular or if you have anything to share? Ur welcome 🙂

    Blogging is more like a hobby with fun and it’s more fun when it generates an income for you…Yeah! you heard it right…Food bloggers can monetize their blogs and get rewarded!

    What’s a better reward for your efforts than money? 😉

    Let’s see how we can do it!

    Before anything else, you need to establish your blog and your identity as a blogger.

    Start writing! Make it as creative as you can. Talk about your Food adventures on the blog or add in lots and lots of recipes, share them with your circle, share it over the Social media just let your blog reach out to a wider audience. (Remember…do not try and over-do anything, we need not annoy anybody)

    More than anything, Content and traffic come first, your content decides your traffic.

    Try getting more insights, engage with others in the food blogging space and learn, how and what is needed for your blog to succeed with better outcomes.

    Be patient, wait till your blog has enough traffic. (This might take time, but it’s going to happen, so keep calm)

    What exactly, is Affiliate marketing??

    An advertiser pays you for promoting his product through your blog…Affiliate marketing looks good….right?

    Affiliate marketing works with blogs that have a good amount of traffic.

    You basically need to recommend some products/services of your advertiser by placing product links on your blog, if someone visits the merchant’s website and purchases the product through your link, you get a commission for that sale.

    The basic idea is something like this:

    The advertiser or the merchant is the brand/business website owner, who pays you .i.e. the blogger for sending traffic to their site.

     It’s a great idea for making money from ads on your blog!

    Connecting with Advertisers

    You must be thinking, how you would connect with the advertisers…??

    Affiliate marketing can be in done both ways, direct or through advertising Networks. The more convenient one would be through advertising networks, it’s pretty simple!

    The simplest way to connect with the advertisers is through an advertising network.

    An advertising network gathers Ad space from publishers and distributes them to advertisers as per the demand.

    So the Advertising network does it all for you, you need not drum up Ad sales you just need to register with the networks.

    We have some best Ad Networks listed down for you:

    1. Google Ad sense:

    • This network is the largest and perhaps the most well-known one, offering display advertising, mobile, video, and search monetization.
    • It’s free and will generally accept the smallest of websites.
    • If you’re just starting, you must apply here!

    2. Media.net:

    • You get access to sponsored display Ads and contextual Ads from Yahoo and Bing.
    • It’s easy to join.

    3. Blogher

    • Most Popular Ad network for food bloggers.
    • It has great support.
    • It helps you promote your blogs.

    4. PlateFul

    • It’s not exclusive, it lets you work with other Ad networks.
    • It has a good CPM rate.

    5. AdBlade

    • If you are already on to the online market, this is very useful for you.
    • Accepts website with massive traffic.

    6. Foodie Blogroll Publisher Program:

    • You get to become a social media influencer, you get paid for spreading the word on social media sites.
    • It will also help you drive traffic to your blog.

    Selling Ad space on your own

    A publisher can directly sell Ad space to an advertiser. All you need to do is set aside a spot on your blog in your sidebars or so for advertisers who are willing to buy an Ad space.

    If you are planning to work one to one with small advertisers, you can directly sell the Ad space.

    One of the best way is to create an Ad box and advertise to people on why they should advertise on your site.

    It’s kind of promoting your blog Ad space.

    Simplify this process by using BuySellAds:

    • You can list your Ad inventory and CPM for each Ad zone.
    • A great AdSense with great control.

    How Ads are going to pay you!

    Mostly, businesses tend to pay per thousand impressions.

    The impressions are measured using the term CPM .i.e. Cost Per Mile.

    A good CPM rate starts around $1.50.

    So it’s like,

                1000 Views = $1.50

    Let’s say your network offers you 60% on every 1000 views, you make 0.90 per mile. So according to this ratio, if your blog brings on around 20,000 readers per day, you make about $18/day.

    $18/day…Not bad at all!

    Will joining the premium networks better my ROI?

     Premium networks get you high dollar advertisers that pay $5.0/CPM and more, and it’s actually good!

    But, as the high dollar advertisers invest more they expect higher quality Ad display, they prefer being on sites that are extraordinary.

    So be smart on your Ad network choices.

    Sponsorships will get you discovered

    Yeah, you heard it right…

    To get your blogging site discovered, create an “Advertise Us Page” on your blog site. Share some information about your blog’s reach and its audience.

    Try promoting that your blog has advertisement space!

    This will help potential advertisers discover you easily.

    Well, that is it…

    Try out these monetization strategies for your Food Blog.

    Let us know how Affiliate marketing helped you make money from Ads on your Food blog!

    Page ranking plays a central role in many of the web search tools.Measure the importance of your website page!!

    Google does it for you…Yes!!!

    But how does it do it?They have a link analysis algorithm which does it all for you!

    Let’s focus on how can we make the best out of this algorithm.

    Let’s get into how we can boost our ranking!

    1 Quality Keywords usage from Quality Content

    Keywords are the search phrases which people type in when they want to look for some page

    Your page must have keywords that you think your target audience is going to search for.

    So, publish relevant content!

    Quality content…Defines your search engine rankings!

    Think of how your reader might search for a specific page and try to repeat those phrases several times throughout the page, don’t overdo it!

    Don’t forget to use bolds, heading tags and more to highlight the phrases….but keep it limited!

    What-Makes-High-Quality-Content-for-Google

     

    2Site structure enhances your SEO

    The better is your site structure, better are the chances of higher ranking over the search engine.

    Good site structure, good SEO success.

     Plan out a hierarchy for your site, if this is well defined it increases the navigability of your site and point users to the most relevant information, it’s a huge SEO advantage.

    The better your site structure the better the content indexing and amazing the search results.

    3Site speed, impacts search ranking

    Speed is incredibly important, so keep your code well optimized.

    Site speed is also important to user experience, they expect your site to load

    In less than 2 seconds. Yes…So you have to focus on speed performance too!

    Optimizing your site speed is a smart thing to do.

    Site speed can contribute to the highs and lows of your conversion rate.

    Every time you close call your speed, you tend to boost customer trust on your site.

     

    4Time Spent does come into play for SEO purpose!
