IS03: Interview with Kulwant Nagi : Owner of Blogging Cage

Posted by Suhel Sayyad

Heartly welcome, Kulwant. I am glad to have you as interviewee on my blog for my readers. Please can you introduce yourself to our readers?

Hello Friends.
I am feeling happy to interact with awesome readers like you.
I am from a very small city in Haryana, India. By qualification I am an electronics engineer and completed my graduation in 2010. I did job as a VLSI verification engineer for 6 months and then decided to quit that job for making my career in internet marketing.

How did you start your blogging carrier? Which was your first blog? And what were the motivations behind entering into blogging?

I started blogging by chance. As I was working with a network marketing company so I decided to start a blog for capturing online leads. Soon after few months blogging converted into passion and I quit that network marketing company.
The very first blog I started was on my own name as KulwantNagi.com. I started this blog on September 2011 and then decided to start one new blog and named it BloggingCage.com, so you can say that my biggest blog is my second blog. ;)
For me money is the biggest motivation.

IS03: Interview with Kulwant Nagi : Owner of Blogging Cage

What are your thoughts on the different types of earning strategies like CPA, CPC, CPM, Affiliate Marketing? Can you brief about pros and cons of them with respect to your experiences.

It all depends on your passion and our courage to take risks.
People are making money with CPA, AdSense, Affiliate, Product Selling and tons of other methods. So just decide one earning method and stick with that. Soon you will learn many hidden strategies to take that earning method at much bigger level and then you will start making real money.

What was the most challenging time faced by you in your carrier of blogging? How you faced it and tackled it?

My starting days were most challenging days for me. As I didn’t have money to buy domains and hosting, so I convinced one of my cousins and use his card for making online payments. I started with HostGator 1 cent hosting, so 1st month was almost free for me.
Then for next three months I kept on paying $9.95 every month.
In these 3-4 months I made little money like $20-30 and gave all money back to my brother and then started spending more time on learning the things.

Why people in India are not targeting themselves towards blogging? Can you brief about your experiences and support from family members in choosing this carrier.

People in India don’t want to try something new and students just want to constraint themselves in the boundaries made by the society.  People just want secure and easy life so that don’t want to try something new and they don’t have belief on this internet marketing business.
My parents were 100% against this career. For atleast 1 years they kept on scolding me and every time they were suggesting me to do any job because for them this was just a wastage of time and job was a secure future.
I ignored them completely and spent many sleepless nights to learn the basics of blogging and in just few months I proved myself.
Now I always feel proud because in just 2 years I have made such an impact in Indian community that people know me, they read my blog, they share my stuff, they interview me, and lots of other things.
So it’s about your belief power in yourself, if you have it then don’t listen to anybody.

How much time it took for you to earn your first penny?

Does Alexa Stats really matter in blogging? Does business affects much with Alexa factor?

Alexa is just a ranking factor which gives you ranking based on number of visitors coming on your site. Alexa is very important for any website because it gives you a rough idea about the site you visiting. Read one my case studies here - How I Achieved 105,446 Alexa in Just 20 Days

Which medium do you use to reach out to your clients? Do you recommend any platforms where you can get paid posts?

For getting clients we cash our relations and use social media sites.
For paid posts watch my hangout - 


Can you tell about impact of social media on blogging?

Social media has its own importance in blogging. Now a days people are spending too much time on social media sites and this craze is growing day by day.
So using social media you can spread more awareness about your brand or blog.

What are your current and future projects in blogging?

Very soon I am going to start one eCommerse website for India.

Any message for our readers?

  • If you want to start blogging then do it today itself.
  • Money is the biggest factor that people are starting blogging. But I will suggest that for atleast 3 months don’t think about making money from your blog.
  • Don’t follow people blindly.
  • Trust yourself.
  • Keep learning.
  • Teach the world.

IS02: Interview with Rajesh Namase - Owner of TechLila

Posted by Suhel Sayyad 2 Comments
We at SuhelSayyad.com have brought to you today SEO Search Engine Optimization Expert as a interviewee. I would like to thank Rajesh for giving his valuable time for this interview.

Can you please brief up about you to our audience?

Well, First of all thanks for interviewing me. I'm a professional blogger and SEO, I blog at TechLila.com. I love to play with search engines. 

IS02: Interview with Rajesh Namase - Owner of TechLila

What made you start your carrier in Blogging? How long you are into this profession?

I am passionate about the internet since 11th standard; I had created my first website to share music and wallpapers on peperonity.com. When I was studying in the third year of engineering, I started my first personal blog (In September 2010). At that time I didn't know about any top bloggers, SEO or even the fact that we can earn from blogging. I just started my first personal blog Namase.com to share my knowledge and tricks that I learnt while experimenting with different things.
From the beginning, I'm trying to cover different and unique topics on my blog. Many people starting knowing me because of my Mystique Theme modifications article. Soon after publishing this article, the blog started getting many visits and people started following my blog.

What are your thoughts on Blogger v/s WordPress?

Both the platforms are good to start blogging; if you're serious about your blog consider using self-hosted version of WordPress (WordPress.org). The problem with BlogSpot and WordPress.com is you don't have full control over your blogs. You can read this article for more technical details: WordPress Vs Blogger.

What are various techniques to drive traffic to our website/ blog?

Quality content and SEO. I've shared all the ways here: The Complete Blog Traffic Guide {5635 Words}

What are your thoughts on Affiliate Marketing? 

If you know how to drive targeted audience to your sites either using different advertising methods or doing SEO then affiliate marketing is one of the best source to earn huge income. I like to play with search engines and that's why I use SEO tactics to drive traffic to my niche sites. If you ask me about the income from affiliate marketing then it's really huge, sky is the limit!  

What strategies you use to increase Facebook Fan Page Likes for your blog? 

  • By hosting giveaways or competitions: It is one of the best method to increase real likes to your fan page.
  • Facebook Ads: You may use Facebook ads to get targeted likes.
  • Using content lockers: There are many plugins to hide the content, your readers must share the post to see hidden content i.e. eBooks or videos. Such plugins allow you to use your Facebook page URL. 
  • Facebook Like box: You may add Facebook like box in your sidebar so people will like your page if they find your articles useful for them.
    Never buy likes from any sites, fake likes are useless, such audience will not interact with your posts.

What are the major reasons behind the failure of majority of newbies in the world of blogging?

First thing is that many people start blogging to earn money, blogging is not some get rich-quick scheme. Many newbie bloggers don't have patience. Some of them are not passionate about their niches, they start a blog and copy paste others’ articles.
There are many more reasons, and I've tried to list them all in this article: "Blogging is Not for Everybody – And Here is Why"  

Is it required for a person to be technically strong if he/she wants to make career into Blogging?

I don't think so. Many hosting services offer one click installation of famous blogging software. Using WYSIWYG editor anyone can create a blog post. Also there are thousands of tutorials to setup a blog. I know many professional bloggers, they are not technically sound still their blogs are famous.

I, being a professor have any young students in reader list. Blogging and CPA Marketing. What would you prefer for the newbie youngster to do.

Frankly speaking, I don't have that much experience in CPA, so sorry it's not possible for me to advice your students. 

Any future plans or projects in mind? 

Yeah, many plans are in my mind, will share once I get success.

IS01 Interview with Facebook CPA Expert: Vipul Taneja

Posted by Suhel Sayyad 2 Comments
Hello Readers, This time you people are lucky to hear on our blog from Facebook CPA Expert Mr. Vipul Taneja. I would like to thank Mr Vipul Taneja to take time out of his busy schedule and address to the questions for readers at our blog. 

nterview with Facebook CPA Expert: Vipul Taneja

Can you please brief up about you to our audience?

Ahh the bragging question. Haha! Well I have been a usual engineer by education but Internet Marketer by choice. Over the last 2 years, I have been chasing my dreams and helping lots of folks make a healthy living online by providing various coaching/mentoring services. I seriously love this part of my work, every day I get to meet such awesome folks and be able to touch many lives!

How does CPA/Affiliate Marketing Work?

CPA Marketing/Affiliate Marketing are not much different are just naming conventions. In short, you get paid some commission by helping the advertisers sell a product or get a lead etc. A lot of time people have misconceptions that this for form of internet marketing is very hard, but I have always believed there are lots and lots of hungry buyers online waiting for me to connect them to right offer. You get paid for every kind of action, could be free signup, surveys or cc submit or even a sale.

What made you start your carrier in CPA Marketing?

I have been working online since 4-5 years now. And like many other I too started with blogging and SEO. But I guess I wasn’t too happy with how I was still working for someone i.e. Google. You will spend endless hours writing super effective content and still no surety that your content will rank for you particular keywords. Or even on fine day you get to know that there is new google update and all your effort is screwed. INSANE. Most of the bloggers online are starving on adsense which is the best source according to them but it is risky as well. My adsense acc was blocked too for no reason, no explanation or anything. This made me realize that I have to look for alternate sources of making money online. And that’s how it started. And trust me this is the best decision I took in my life ever! No regrets!

What tips would you suggest to our readers to lower the CPA in Adwords?

I haven’t been working too much with adwords so far. But as Facebook, Adwords works on similar lines. You just have to “REVELANT”, as simple as that. Once you relevant, you reach to your targeted audience automatically leading to higher CTR! And Danggg!! There you go. Your CPC will lower down on its own. So I would suggest spend time in finding right audience for your product and keep testing.

What are various techniques to drive traffic for the Offers raised to target CPA

When it comes to traffic I say ANYTHING. There are no specific techniques. Driving traffic is an art. Once you understand how to entire game works, in no-time you will be able to convert that TRAFFIC to VISITORS and make them convert. From free traffic to paid, all in the end our humans and can be converted to one offer or another. So keep looking for those hungry buyers.

What problems did you face while running those campaigns in your CPA Marketing journey? Can you share some situations that were horrible?

Well plenty of them. My journey like many others was never easy. It is and was bumpy since the beginning. It still is and now I enjoy it. I had many issues like cashflow issues (that’s the most common) or not getting into right networks, no coding skills, no designing skills.  But one has to start from somewhere and keep learning stuff throughout their journey. Even getting a credit card in India is very hard, so that was another hiccup. But overall my major problem to figure out “How to overcome the fear of losing money?”<- Sounds common? Yeah it is. It happened with me as well. All you need to do is stick there till you find success.

What are the major reasons behind the failure of CPA Campaigns?

I’ll just list it down:
1.    Fear of failure
2.    Procrastination- Delaying stuff
3.    Not taking actions and making statements before that
4.    Not testing enough
5.    And Patience
And I believe Taking Actions is the biggest problem. Most of them fail here.

Is it required for a person to be technically strong if he/she wants to make carrier into CPA Marketing?

No, not at all. You don’t need to be a super kickass coder/designer. There are always two choices, either you can learn some basic skills of HTML,CSS and designing which I prefer or spend some cash and get your stuff done by a skilled guy. Both works. Depends on what you favor. But probably it is not as difficult as it seems. You can always learn, all you need to do is spend some time with it. And it helps to being independent, which is very essential.

I being a professor have many young students in reader list. Blogging and CPA Marketing. What would you prefer for the newbie youngster to do?

Well it’s always a personal choice. If I would have been in there situations, I’ll sit down and plan everything. I will write down all my resources including how much I have to devote or how much I can try before finding success and do a reality check. Blogging is fairly easier in India as it doesn’t require too much cash. But it takes time. I’ll be biased here and take CPA Marketing a better platform as it is scalable once you are doing well.

Please brief something about any courses that you take or prefer a newbie to undergo if he/she wants to make a carrier in CPA Marketing

I run a coaching program where I get students on board in batches and teach them about CPA Marketing. And you can find more details about it here. Apart from that if they are interested to join me on the latest buzz i.e. Teespring can join my Teespring MasterClass here.

Any future plans post CPA Marketing?

Future, haha! No idea. For now I’m loving what I’m doing and will continue the same till I can. And later probably I would start building some products and that’s about it.
