What does UpdateLand do:
UpdateLand is on the web since 2013 which mainly focuses on blogging and SEO. It helps an individual with the tips and tricks that one can implement to grow his/her blog and make passive income from blogging.
“UpdateLand is also popular for in-depth and honest reviews for products and services. Because it receives over 500,000+ monthly traffic, we provide a platform for exposure to almost any business”- says Jyoti
What’s your inspiration behind building the product/ service?
My past-life was my biggest inspiration. My parents were living in villages and I saw them working very hard in the fields. My mind and heart knew I didn’t want that life so I decided that I will put all the efforts and live a good life where money will not be the issue.
My digital marketing career started in the year 2011 as an SEO Executive where I earned 7000 INR per/ month.
But I was not satisfied with the job as my work focused mostly on copy-pasting stuff and didn’t help me to gain knowledge or learn anything new. On top of it, the money received was not sufficient.
So, I started working part-time as a freelancer with my day job to make some extra money. However, that too didn’t help either as some months I made huge money and other months I didn’t have anything to do and earn! Moreover, I had to work according to the demands of the clients’ which wasn’t inspiring.
When I heard of blogging, I set up a website through Blogspot. I used to write articles in my free time. Back then, I had no idea how I could make money with a blog, I had just heard of it.
One day, someone approached me to write about their product and paid me $$. The amount was good for me at that time.
This completely changed my career. I knew blogging could help me live the life I want. From that day onwards, I started spending more time on my blogs and less on freelancing.
In short, nothing “inspired” me to start a blog. It was just the craving to live the dream life which gives me a reason to wake up in the morning and work 12+ hours, according to my own will. And from there the idea came up!
According to you, what are the three qualities one must have to achieve success?
Consistency, patience, and the habit of observing others. All of the ideas amount to nothing if not implemented. So one needs to implement these in real life to get results.
Which online tools/ services/ apps do you use the most and would like to recommend as well?
Here are some tools and services that I use daily:
- LastPass – To manage the passwords
- SEMrush – All SEO activities including keyword research, backlink analysis, spying on competitors, and so on.
- NordVPN – To change the IP address.
- Google Analytics – Monitor the traffic on my blogs.
- To-Do List – Make a list of tasks to get done daily
- Canva – To design images for Instagram
- Photoshop – To design images for blog posts
Share any one habit which you think makes you more productive.
Concentrating on one thing at a time with a fully focused mind. It brings quality to my work. I am not a multitasker and I love it. As I can give my 100% in a single work that I’m doing.
What are your plans for the coming 3 years?
I am not the person who plans things. I go with the flow.
