Hey Bilal, glad to be doing this interview with you today.
To start off this interview can we get a little bio about what you do?
Glad to be doing this interview as well. Let’s see, I’m a 15 year old Internet entrepreneur. I run my own business and blog (http://www.robswebtips.com/blog) and I am the author of the book Ultimate traffic tips. I earn a full time living from the comforts of my home.
Tell me about your Blog?
My blog http://www.robswebtips.com/blog is focused on helping others succeed and make money online. After spending months reading blogs that teach people cruddy information, I decided I need to make a change to this.
What was your first blog?
http://www.robswebtips.com/blog was my first blog, but when I first started I lacked a lot of knowledge knowing about what blogging really is so it played a big effect with my blog.
What is the biggest tip you would give to a newbie blogger?
Focus on the content. So many new bloggers I meet are so tied up with SEO and Making money when those are important, but it does not mean ANYTHING if you don’t have valuable content. People come to your site expecting to read valuable content that’s worth their wild. If they come to your blog and see nothing but text link ads pasted all over the place, and cannot find the content there is no way you will be able to keep a valued reader like this.
What do bloggers do that you wish they wouldn’t?
A lot of bloggers find their mistakes but they do not correct them. It doesn’t make much sense to me. If you find a weakness in your blogging area, why not try and fix it? It’s something I see from many new age bloggers nowadays.
Where do you see growth in the blogging field?
I see growth with the new blogging platforms that will be released for us, the style of blogging and the actual meaning overall. I also see video blogging becoming the next new generation of blogging as well.
What do you do to improve the world?
Besides offering my information free to others. I offer one on one mentoring services to those who are interested in starting their own online business.
What is one thing about you that not many people know?
That I’ve probably had more failures than I have success. A lot of people see my site and automatically think I just woke up one day and established this wonderful site. I’ve made lots of mistakes with my websites and even until today I still do. But the one thing that makes me proud of these mistakes is I find my mistakes and prosper from them.
What’s your favorite book?
Hmm.. Good question. My favorite book would probably have to be Ramped Mindset by Robb Sutton because it has helped me develop a more stronger attitude to succeeding online.
What is on your iPod?
I listen to a variety of music Rap, R&B, Gospel, bit of Rock. But besides those, I download podcasts and listen to them daily to provide inspiration for me.
What are your contact details (email, company, blog, facebook, myspace, forums, etc)?
[email protected](nospam)live.com (Email), Robswebtips Inc. (Company) http://www.robswebtips.com/blog (Blog), http://www.robswebtips.com/facebook
(Facebook), you can find me in the Incomediary & Problogger forums, also twitter with me @robswebtips
What events do you go to?
I attend entrepreneur events, blogging events, underground training events, and almost any event related to my niche.
How do you prefer to communicate?
The best way of communication with me is over email or by phone. Unlike some others, I don’t prefer twitter and facebook to communicate. Small conversations is fine, but overall I prefer email.
Who would you recommend, and why?
Lisa Irby (2createawebsite) – Great inspiration and affiliate marketer since day #1 of my career. She has by far given me some
of the best advice about building a website, and with out her I don’t think I’d be where I’m at today.
Michael Dunlop (Incomediary) – Gives the true meaning to the word “Success” he gives entrepreneurs advice on how to make money
Robb Sutton (Robbsutton) – Gives great advice and tips to developing a “entrepreneur attitude” and succeeding online.
