There’s a lot to learn about blogging successfully but did you know that you can also learn from your competition? You shouldn’t copy what others do but you can see what’s working for the competition and find ways to make it work for you. You can look into the things they are doing right and find a way to make it your own.
Here are three tips to learn from your blog competition:
- See what people are saying – You have the same audience as your competition so you can learn a lot from what people are saying to and about them. How are they interacting? What gets them commenting? What posts are being shared the most?
- Learn from the design – What does the design of their blog teach you? Is it easy to find what you’re looking for? How is the layout?
- How are they making money? – What is your competition doing to monetize their blog? Where’s the money coming in? Do they publish income reports? What can you learn about where they are making money to apply to your own blog?
Now that you have these tips in mind, you can begin a plan for studying your competition to see what you can learn from them.
