It is no new thing that entertainment/news niche has been the most dominating niche in the internet, with a huge sum of traffics and readers availability.
But the major problem now is that; among all the millions of News/Entertainment blog, not all are successful or precisely well
Starters of this niche are always enthusiastic about how they can compete with top sites and blogs such as BBC, CNN, TIMES, Vanguard, The Punch, The Guardian and so on.
The word “compete” is what you should never ignore when using this niche because entertainment/news blog is the most competitive niche among all niches.
As an entrepreneur in the internet since 2011, and also being a writer and owner of an entertainment/news blog, i am sharing this article as part of my experiences using the niche.
The very fact i have found about this niche is that you must be willing to spend time and money.
I have come up with 5 steps that will likely make you succeed in the news/entertainment niche.
1. Regular Updates
A lazy person can’t be a successful blogger irrespective of his/her niche.
You need to regularly update your blog with the latest trending reports . No readers will love to stick with a blog that don’t produce fresh articles on a daily bases.
2. Unique articles
Unique article? , is that really possible?, these are what most starters always think about, but i tell you, a report can be articulated in more than hundreds of unique format.
The key things you need in a report are;
– Date of incident
– statements or quotes
– location of scene
– videos, Pictures (if available), and you go ahead in creating your own article.
3. Offline Advertisement
There are lots of media for advertising your news/entertainment blog if you ever want to get serious with it. The few are Television, Radio, Tracts, Church Magazine/Bulletin, Newspapers e.t.c
4. Social Media
Social medias like Twitter, Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn, and Instagram made it possible to share your blog easier to friends. Engaging in 2 or 3, if not all social media will definitely lead to increase in your blog traffic.
5. Avoid unnecessary back-links
I Have seen so many blogs that has unnecessary back-links to the current post source and that is totally wrong.
Some people also write half a post and put a readmore link to the source of the post. Doing this means you are driving your blog readers to a better blog than yours.
In conclusion: Success is all about stake, your stake here is willingness to spend time and money, and compete.
Remember: “Whatever the mind of a man conceives and believe, it can
