Hello everyone, today we will know that if you are willing to start professional blogging, what should you invest on? This will be very important for you to know because, if you invest at the right place, then your blogging career becomes very easy. So let's know.
List of things to invest in blogging
Domain name is the first thing you should invest in. The free blogging platforms that provide blogs with subdomains, which are no longer relevant to gain traffic from the search engine. So if you want to make your online identity from your blog, then you should first buy a top level domain name. You can buy a domain name at much lower prices than you think. I bought my first domain name for only 80 rupees and I would like to tell you that I have bought many domain names till date but Never spend more than Rs 300 for any one domain name.
If you want to buy domain name directly by visiting website like domain name registrar such as Godaddy, Namecheap etc. then you may not get so cheap. You should take advantage of their discount coupons and offers, which keep coming time to time. If you buy the domain name, you can also use it with many free blogging platforms such as Blogger.
Web hosting is the next need. As I mentioned above, you can also use your domain with a free blogging platform such as Blogger, but it has many limitations. So if you want to do professional blogging and want to earn money from blogging, then you have to choose the premium platform of WordPress. Actually WordPress itself is free but for that you will need web hosting. That's why you need web hosting. For this reason web hosting is at number two in our list of investments.
If you choose WordPress, there is a lot of resources available to help you in this, for example, you will find many helpful blog posts related to WordPress on ShoutMeHindi itself.
Now if you make both the investments mentioned above, this is enough. But if your budget is more than this, then you can also make some more investments, which can make your blogging journey even more simple.
What to invest if there is no money problem?
As I told you that you have to choose the platform of WordPress to do professional blogging, now you need a theme for your blog. By the way, many themes are also available for free, but free themes are not so customizable that we can use them for professional blogging. If you have a good budget then you should buy a premium theme.
Premium Tools and Plugins
The power of WordPress are its plugins. Many WordPress plugins are free, but there are many plugins which are more powerful and beneficial than free plugins, but you have to buy them, if you want, you can also invest in such plugins. There are some tools which help in increasing your keyword research, blog analysis and traffic, you can also invest on such tools.
