Q1:- Welcome To Bloggingnavigation, Please Give a Brief Introduction To Blogging Navigation Readers?

Thanks for inviting me on your awesome Blog.

I am Amol Chavan, living in Pune, Maharashtra. I am the founder of Side Hustle Blog Growthfunda a blog that covers contents on a side hustle to create awareness about becoming your own boss and live freedom lifestyle.

I am a Software Engineer by profession and Side Hustler, Blogger passion having around 10 years of experience.

I love to write and talk about Side Hustles, Blogging, and Online Business.

Q2:- Can You Share Your Blogging Journey How You Come To Blogging So That Everyone can learn from it.?

My journey as a Side Hustler started during my stint as Software Engineer with a Big MNC IT company.

While working and running in a RAT RACE of 9-5 job I realized that it is not actual life. In a 9-5 job, I have experienced and seen so many ups - downs, monotonous & uncertain professional life.

This hitted me badly and I started looking for side hustle ideas.

Therefore, I have picked up some business ideas along with Job to start, but I failed miserably in four business attempts. (One can read my whole side hustle journey here)

However, this helped me to gain more knowledge towards entrepreneurship and increase my desire for entrepreneurship.

During Dec 2017, I have to know about Digital Marketing, so I took an offline course on Digital marketing in my area and then I never looked back.

To practice my Digital Marketing learning I grabbed Web Hosting and Domain. After spending 9 months on this blog customization, learning WordPress, on 1 Jan 2018, I launched blog Growthfunda.

This is how my journey as a Blogger and Side Hustler started.

Q6: Can Blogging Will Be A Full Time Career Option or Not?

Yes and Why Not Blogging Be a Full time Career.

 Due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic, many organizations, individuals like to work in the Work from Home and I believe maximum folks in the world have accepted that work lifestyle.

Blogging is a decent work from home career option that anyone, anytime, anywhere can start.

I have seen that many Full time employees who have started blogging as side hustles, now shifted towards Blogging as a full time career.

So Blogging can be a full time career as well as Blogging can be run like as a business.

Ideally None, but I admire and respect all the bloggers like Ankit Singla, Amit Mishra, and many others who shifted lifestyle from Job to Blogging as a Side Hustle and now living with it.

  • Stick to one social media channel and from that channel diversify the traffic across other social media channels.

Q11: Can You Please Share Some Proven Affiliate Marketing Tips To Boost Sales Especially For Newbies Like Me.

More Traffic = More Sales is actually not that much true. Targeted Traffic = More Sales actually works in the affiliate Marketing.

  • So one should focus on getting targeted traffic rather than much traffic. Great to places get the targeted traffic are: Quora, Answers.com, communities like IndieHackers, Medium.com, Hackernoon, Forums, Email Marketing, Commenting on Niche Blogs, Paid Ads, etc
  • Do not prompt too many products at the same time. Focus on one good high converting product. Create a pillar article around that product and 3-5 supporting articles to that pillar article. This will help to boost ranking and traffic.
  • Inside blog, newsletter, social media post, discuss about the problems that the audience is facing and how the product that you are promoting resolves that problem.
  • Tell the benefits and educate the audience about how to use the product.
  • Try to implement a content funnel.

After implementing above tips, definitely one can expect the boost in affiliate conversion.

Nothing special as such but few things newbie should focus on:

  • Consistency is key. Donโ€™t get distracted with Shining objects syndrome.
  • Blogging is a long-term game, so think and work accordingly. I recommend along with Blogging one should try other side hustle like YouTube, freelancing, etc.

Q14: Can You please share your monthly estimated revenue that you generate from blogging just for motivation?

I never share any screenshot or revenue as I feel money is just by product. Some people take this as a motivation and others think it as a medium to grab audience attention.
