An Inspiring Interview With Mangesh Kumar Bhardwaj .
I have asked him several worthwhile questions and I hope you guys will love this Interview with Mangesh Kumar Bhardwaj!
Let’s get started.
1) Can you give us a quick and short Introduction of your journey?
First of all, thanks for inviting me to Your Blog.
For the latest updates, you can join me on Instagram too!
I got to know about blogging from an MLM seminar when I was in my college the second year.
After that, I created some websites and blogs with copy paste work which obviously didn’t work for me.
After deep research, I started BloggingQna youtube channel and website.
And now all of these things are running very well for me.
2) What do you think is blogging? And how can a newbie get started with it?
Blogging was a hobby 5 to 10 years ago but now it’s a real business.
I simply say it’s not a quick-rich scheme. If you are thinking so, then leave it, blogging is not for you.
This is a real business and like all other businesses, it requires time, money and hard work.
Below I’ll leave some tips to get started with a new blog.
1. Utilize all social media platforms for initial traffic to your blog because for organic traffic you have to wait for some months.
Social Media Platforms not only helps you to get a good amount of targeted traffic but also to build a good relationship with others!
2. Do networking within your niche.
This will help you in building good relationships with fellow bloggers, and you will get good exposure for your blog.
One more tip, don’t look at what others are doing and start the same.
Simply follow your passion and start your first blog in your interest.
If you do so, then the chances of success are very high as compared to starting a blog on any random niche.
3) How blogging has changed your whole life? And what was your parent’s response when you were in the growing stage?
Blogging changed my life completely.
Before this, I was doing 10 to 6 jobs, and there was no freedom of time, finance and there were no other benefits.
But blogging gives me all of these things. Be it financial freedom, be it time freedom
I work when I want and I take a rest when I want to. It’s simply amazing or I can say the best thing I want.
If I talk about my parents’ reaction, initially, they are not really happy because they thought you couldn’t sit at home and make money online.
But after showing the results, they believed it and right now I’m getting full support from them.
4) What is the blogging platform that you recommend the most for blogging?
Always WordPress for best results.

6) Design of your website and landing pages really matters in attracting the people?
Yes, definitely no doubts about that.
User retention is most important and for that, you have to provide good landing pages to the visitors.
For that, I use Thrive architect. If you check my blog, my blog homepage, landing pages, and even posts are designed using thrive architect.
But It cost you around $67! If you are unable to invest in thrive architect then you can use Elemntor. It comes with both a free and paid version.

10) Do blog commenting Still work?
Yes, it is effective but not that much as in a few years back.
Blog commenting is still a good way to create some initial backlinks for new blogs.
But don’t expect too much from it. You will not get ranking with just blog commenting.
Remember one thing: The backlinks you will get easily will not help you to boost your ranking.
For that, You need to create high-quality backlinks!

1. Content quality and relevance
2. Powerful Meta tag elements
3. Call-to-action buttons for increasing CTR
12) If a newbie can’t rank higher on Google, then how can he build his Ecosystem to get traffic?
Here is an amazing tip to build an ecosystem around your blog.
Start building your audience from Day One. Now the tip is don’t focus on All platforms at the same point in time.
What I suggest is to choose a strong platform and start building your audience on that.
After that, divert that audience to other different platforms.
That is what I have been doing for a long time. And the results are super amazing.
I Choose YouTube for building my audience. After that, I diverted that audience to other platforms.
The whole credit goes to my YouTube Channel. Initially, I was only focusing on that and then diverted that audience on different platforms.
And it worked for me!
13) How to grow a Facebook group?
For growing your Facebook group you have provided the best value to the group members and share your group link as much as you can in relevant places.
In my case, I am sharing it in my YouTube videos, telegram channel, and my blog.
From there I am getting quite good results and member requests.

It totally depends on your niche. You have to find out the best affiliate program according to your niche.
