Interview With M Tanveer Nandla (Online Entrepreneur from Multan)
Can you tell our readers about yourself and your blog?
Well, I’ve nothing new to tell about myself. I keep exploring and unveiling myself over time on my facebook profile and I’m addicted of facebook now 🙂
The ones who don’t know me, I’m Tanveer, an I.T. Professional studied Information technology in Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan.
Running few ventures, some of which are public and lots of them are private which are not revealed due to privacy concerns.
I blog at Tnandla whenever I find time to write down something and running a web hosting company Lizard.Host and managing an I.T. company with the name of MWebs I.T. Solutions.
Describe how did you first get into blogging?
Well, that’s an interesting story. I used to love computer from the day I first used it. I took admission in BS Information technology and then encountered with the subject HTML, since then, I’m in blogging field and happy with that 🙂
Can you tell me some of your strengths that really helped you in blogging?
Better market analysis, good keyword research, and strong programming skills are the strength that gives me an edge over other bloggers. I tweak the websites in a way that Google falls in love with them at first sight (Yes, I believe in love at first sight 🙂 ) and then I believe in strong and value added content. After that, minimal off page SEO puts it on the right track.
Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?
It has become my profession and it’s my life now. I’ve tried lots of offline businesses just to relax from this stress but I found there’s lots of stress in offline business so I get back to blogging and happy with that 🙂
What do you think is the best service a blogger can provide to his readers?
Value added content. When you promised to provide what’s your visitors were looking for in SERPs, then you must have to provide it in better and a simpler way than your competitors. There can by any service, just focus on user experience and the content you are presenting, that’s the core thing you must be focusing on when you are blogging seriously.
How do you manage time to run your blog efficiently?
Once I used to awake almost 20 hours a day to keep my passion doing wonders for me. I used to study, walk few miles to reach home, then go back to my working place (a ghost house) which I rented out in Rs. 500 a month, I used to stay there and work long.
After that much struggle, the time has come when I don’t need to make schedules for my task. Things are almost automated and I’m enjoying traveling.
What do you think is the best strategy that worked well for you to get more traffic to your blog?
Keep it simple. These words don’t fascinate newcomers. They want miracles oriented tips and tricks which can give them overnight success which is if possible not good because it decreases your love towards learning and makes you habitual of miracles and when miracles stop happening, they get dishearted.
Value added content, on page tweaks, code customization, social branding and signals & strong link building strategy has done for me.
How do you want to improve yourself in the next year?
Well, I’ve become much lazy, I would first love to get rid of it and come back onto the track quickly. Next year would be more important for me than before, I want to take a new start in next year and want to forget past successes. I want to improve my communication skills in next year and want to travel the world.
I see that you love hiking. Tell me your best trip so far ?
#Bikers was the best trip so far for me. It was an amazing experience. Those who wants to read the whole story can follow the link (https://facebook.com/100000496805826/posts/1422359074457306/). In Bikers, we hiked towards Arang Kel, a beautiful valley of AJK.
Hiking towards fairy meadows was an exceptional experience for me. Mighty killer nanga Parbat is something can’t to be forgotten throughout life. Hiking towards Rama Lake in a store valley was also beautiful experience in which we enjoyed every single moment of it.
What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from that?
I don’t remember any. Maybe there would be a lot of failures in my life but successes made me forget those failures and I don’t remember any at this time. One must not worry about failures. Failures are nothing but an experience.
Tell me about your proudest achievement?
When my father calls me ‘money making machine’, that’s something makes my head high.
Who has impacted you most in blogging and how?
I didn’t use to believe in mentorship in past so there wasn’t anyone who taught me blogging specifically. I always used Google to find solutions to the problems I faced. You can say Google is my mentor and the websites I used to visit my teachers.
What is your greatest achievement outside of blogging?
My Family is proud of me. My those relatives who used to avoid to talk to us in the past, now ask for appointments and give my examples to their children for motivation. Restoration of self-respect is greatest achievements. I was a shy guy who used to avoid public gatherings but Allah has blessed me with the best one could imagine.
What do you do in your spare time?
I do blogging in my spare time 😀
It could be funny but true, I hang out with friends and cousins, I travel a lot, I give time to my family and visit relatives homes just to give them good gestures and spend time with them as after I got little famous things are changed. Now my loved ones feel that I give them less time than before so I have to take care of it and spend time with them just to realize them that I’m same old taani (My nick/childhood name).
What was the most challenging moment in your blogging journey so far?
Ahh! I don’t want to remember that.
Can you name some of your favorite bloggers and explain why they are your favorites’?
I don’t believe everyone who posts screenshots of their success. My evaluation is little different. I really respect a lot who does genuine work and struggled and got success in their career.
I won’t like to name them as I may forget some and that wouldn’t be justice with others.
What inspired you to start your blog?
Passion and Money.
How do you motivate yourself to keep the blog up and running?
Blogging is my passion and I don’t need motivation for my passion. I love blogging even if I don’t get paid anything, I would still be an I.T. guy.
What do you find the most frustrating aspect of blogging?
Every other guy starts teaching blogging. That’s the most frustrating aspect of blogging. Second is, few people don’t research and calling real experts fake. These two aspects are most frustrating for me.
In the future where do, you hope your blog will take you?
My only dream (worldly) left is the world tour. I want to visit every inch of the earth before I die and I want my blog to take me to the heights of success that I could visit the world without worry.
Have you met anyone interesting/famous on your blogging journey?
Yes, this is a nice question. This is the era of the digital world and a single news reaches to millions within few seconds through social media and other internet resources. I know too many famous and interesting personalities related to the blogging field. Pakistan acquires a huge potential in every field, I have met many personalities and gems full of potential personally and on social media.
Did you have any professional help or did you created the blog yourself?
No, I have never taken any help from any professional and I have created all my blogs myself. Although I share knowledge and creative ideas with some professionals who are very much closed to me.
How much time do you spend blogging?
I don’t spend too much time in blogging, I must say that I give time to blogging less than Facebook & Twitter.
What do you think is the best social media strategy for getting more visitors to a blog?
Social Media is nowadays the most effective platform to get more visitors without any hard work. You just need to be clever and sharp to keep the eye on trends and interest of public. Trends and Interest of public are my strategies.
Would you encourage other people to make their blog?
Yes, definitely certainly I will. It’s very easy to create a blog, but it’s very difficult to take your blog to the level where you could make money. Mostly people make their blog, but they give up in the middle of the way. I will encourage other people on this behalf, create the blog, work on them and be consistent with an honest attitude.
A lot of people think that blogging is an easy way to make money online. Do you have some tips for those people who are interested in making money from the blog?
The first tip for those people, Please don’t think that making money online is very easy. It takes sleepless nights, restless days and much more potential with honesty. Be honest, be positive and consistent attitude is must for making money through blog.
What you think about my blog. I need improvements or not?
Well, There’s always a room to improve for everything. You might need to make some changes on your site. Currently, you just need to focus your off-page SEO and researched content if you want to compete for the tycoon sites of the industry. You know what I mean.
Well, thank you so much, sir, for your most valuable time for this great interview and my best wishes always with you. And guys I hope you learn A lot with help of this interview and this interview motivate you to keep blogging.
