Abhay Pratap Singh, founder of www.trixhub.com, is a professional internet marketer, blogger and affiliate.
We recently checked in with Abhay to get his insight on internet marketing and get his take on the benefits of file sharing, particularly in online marketing practices. Here's what he shared:
Can you tell us about your background in blogging and online marketing?
When I was in college in 2009 I read about the blogging tool Blogspot,= to create a free blog, so I created a blog with Blogspot, but did not continue it for a variety of reasons. Then, after studying engineering, I found WordPress and created a blog with that platform. I learned many things about blogging, WordPress and online money making through forums and blogs.
Once I had some knowledge about the field, I found that online marketing was the world's best platform to make money without a huge investment.
How has internet marketing evolved since you started blogging?
When I started blogging internet marketing was growing. In the last three to four years marketing has changed drastically due to the boom in technology and people's growing use of smartphones. With people now constantly connected to the internet and each other with their smartphone, they are able to use easily internet while they work or travel.
What are the most important lessons you've learned about internet marketing since you got your start? What are some mistakes you made early on?
With blogging, I found that internet marketing is the main thing we have to focus on. Without traffic on a blog or website there is no value to the content. SEO is a part of internet marketing, so making sure to have a proper SEO strategy is beneficial.
Mistakes I made in the early days are not focusing on SEO as well as social media marketing - only writing content and not using the proper keywords, tags, etc.
What have you found are the most useful internet marketing tools available right now?
There's a lot fantastic internet marketing tools available that are easy to use and operate. Here are tools that I found are the most useful:
Google keyword Planner
Google Webmasters and Analytics
Long Tail Pro
Yoast SEO Plugin
How important is quality file-sharing software in blogging and internet marketing?
File sharing tools are important. We use file sharing tools for easy and secure collaboration. We often have files we want to share with teammates or clients. We can share file through an email attachment but there are restrictions on file size. It's also not conducive to collaboration, as it doesn't allow for multiple people to work on the same file at once.
Instead of using email attachments, file sharing tools are best. All are cloud based and easy to track with many awesome features. We just have to upload files to share with friends or colleagues, access remotely (on any device), or store for later use.
How do you approach data storage for the sites you've built or worked with? What advice can you offer other online marketers or bloggers on finding reliable storage solutions?
I basically use a content delivery network for our sites with good traffic. I'm connected with Cloudflare on each of our sites. I have found MaxCDN is the best premium option. Look for security, technical support, bandwidth for going into CDN.
What trends or innovations in internet marketing are you following today? Why do they interest you?
We basically follow mobile apps marketing. At present around 60 percent of users use the internet on their smartphone and smartphone users are increasing day by day. I also think videos work better than written content. Users love to watch videos more than reading articles.
But search engine optimization is my first priority. At present, we are managing more than 100 websites and some of them have more than millions of views monthly. So I suggest every blogger or internet marketers focus on SEO properly and use long tail keywords on your articles. Use Google keyword planner to get help on keyword suggestions.
