What do you think is the best service a blogger can provide to his readers? Deelip Kushwaha: Interesting Question Well, A successful blogger has to provide information on everyday life aspects that your audience may not have known before. Provide opinions and facts that may not have been known before, but the overall idea is to provide information which is absent in mainstream/traditional media. Also, make attempts to be different from other bloggers. A blogger can give best services to his readers such as: tips and tricks, attractive design, interesting adverts and rich and well led out tips and tricks to the readers. Have you spent money on advertising and marketing your blog? (If yes, please tell us more about it) I haven’t spent money on advertising and marketing for our blog. How much did you invest upfront when you got started blogging? Where was it invested in? My previous investments: I just purchased the domain name and shared hosting from go daddy when I started my blogging journey and hired a dedicated content writer. My current investments: • Domain name • Hosting (Cloud Based) • Freelance Content Writing • Freelance web designer and developer It is always great to see your blog growing, what is your traffic generation strategy? Good question, most of the people having same question in their mind. I mostly depend on search engine for my website traffics by doing onpage page and offpage optimization. At the same time, I started targeting social network website such as – Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, LinkedIn and others. After search engine, facebook and twitter are one of the top referring sites for Durgtech.com traffics. What is the goal of your blog? If making money is the goal, what is your monetization strategy? Blogging is a passion for me, the goal of my blog is to empower every computer user to know various tips and tricks on digital world, which makes your internet life easier. Making money is not a goal of my blog. I have launched our blog durgtech.com to help those who have trouble understanding technology in the digital world. Where do you see yourself professionally in next 3-5 years? Good question for any professional entrepreneur. Now I am a part time blogger and giving only 2 to 4 hours daily for my blog. Coming to your question, in next 3-5 years I want to become full time blogger and india’s no-1 tech blogger. I am planning to make our existing blog bigger such as TechCrunch and TechCrunch coming next 3-5 years.
