There are literally billions of blogs out there. Almost anyone can start a new blog and start creating contents for it, But it’s nearly impossible to make it popular and generate income from it, right?
The problem with the many blogs is the competition. The more blogs your blogging niche has, the more competition it can generate.
And it’s also very easy to get abandoned by the crowd especially if you are a new blogger without having any connections with already established bloggers.
So how can you stand out from the crowd even if you are a new blogger to make your blog popular?
Here are a few incredible ways to stand out from the crowded niche in the blogosphere.
The first step is to create space for yourself:
You simply can’t survive in the ocean full of sharks, you need to master in ONE thing at a time. First of all, create some space for yourself is essential to make your blog successful in the long run. But how can you create a unique space in this crowding niche?
Pick a narrow niche:
Most new bloggers write about everything on their blogs and they don’t attract, not even a single visitor. Result? They suck like hell.
If you want to stand out even if you are a new blogger, make sure to pick a niche where you are interested in and write focused contents to grab others attention. Don’t write everything under the sun, you simply fail miserably.

Build connections with others:
You can use social media sites like Google plus, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook etc. to increase your online visibility in the beginning. Try to spend quality time building relationships with other bloggers, this is the only way to get your name out there (at the beginning of your blogging journey).
Guest blogging on other blogs is another best way to grow your online connections. Don’t guest post for the sake of getting links, try to build relationships, you can gain much more when you offer great stuff to others.
Attract, your readers with the design of your blog:
Never make your blog appealing ordinary. I have seen many blogs which are very basic in appealing, which don’t attract my attention in the first visit. And you know what? Once the visitor is gone, he is gone FOREVER!
If you want to quickly grab your audience attention, there’s only one way – get a great design that looks appealing. You don’t need to invest thousands of dollars though, there are lots of premium themes out there which you can get for a few $$. And do small changes and customize it to make it stand out from the crowd.
Your goal is to attract your readers in the first visit itself.
Create a USP:
USP stands for Unique Selling Point or Unique Selling proposition which is the best weapon to stand out from the crowd. In short, USP means “what’s your specialty”? Why should I read your blog or buy your products when there are a hell lot of blogs are already out there. Always ask yourself this question – what you are doing differently from your competitors??
It’s not so easy to stand out when you don’t know who you are writing for. So, spend time and money to know your targeted audience And before creating USP for your blog, make sure to find out your prospects and analyze what they are always seeking for. Also find out where they regularly hang out, because you should be building your presence wherever they gather. The first step is to make a name for yourself in the top blogs, you can do this either by guest blogging or blog commenting. Be consistent with your blogging efforts and you will be alright. Last but not least, come up with a great domain name that’s:
- Easy To Spell
- Easy To Remember And Concise
Don’t start a blog just to start making some quick money. Blogging is not a money making machine (especially if you are new to the field). There are no shortcuts to blogging success, you must spend consistent efforts to make your blog good to great.
