Mi Muba The Money Blogger From Pakistan
I am so glad to introduce yet another wonderful blogger to the readers of NAVFY as the blogger of the week. I am sure this week’s blogger is a well-known blogger to the blogging field. He is from our neighboring nation Pakistan. I am sure he too is a very familiar person to the readers of #philipscom. He has contributed several notes and views to the pages of Philipscom. His guest posts and the contribution to our roundups too are worth mention at this time. I am so happy to write a bit more about this wonderful and adorable personality commonly known as Mi. Like Harleena I met this amazing blogger on an IM Marketing site. He writes blog related posts especially on how to make money online etc. His blog name itself is Be A Money Blogger.
He has been blogging for the last 5 years and doing different kinds of jobs for the last 24 years. Most of his jobs total 15 related to journalism, public relation, public awareness, teaching, content writing, and blogging.
Education-wise he is double post-graduate in commerce and economics. He is 48 and married and having two lovely daughters.
In the initial stage of his working life though he faced many hindrances, but his sheer hard work he was able to do two jobs. His morning job has never been so highly paid so he had to do a part-time job in the evening to support his main earning. He preferred to do a part time job which he could do staying at home.
Since the introduction of online content marketing, he has been an active person associated with it. He says those were the days when quality was not important and just a 400 to 500 posts fully stuffed with keywords was considered an amazing or epic post.
While hunting for online jobs he happened to read success stories of blogging giants like Jeremy Shoemaker, John Chow, Jon Morrow, Lisa Irby and much more. Then he started thinking to seriously join blogging but couldn’t have made up his mind to just dive into it without knowing it he could earn handsome income from it.
Then he got a full-time job as ghost blogger in a UK NGO. That was most challenging time for him. He used to work 20 hours daily to learn all important blogging chores including blog development, SEO and content writing. He did this job for two years and learned a lot during this most golden time of his blogging career.
While doing this job he had established his two blogs. One was on capital market awareness in his national language Urdu and the other one is a green blog by name: PollutionPollution.com. As soon as he started earning from both of them sufficient to make his living he quit the ghost blogger job and now a full-time pro blogger and having a sound earning through his blogs.
His three years research to learn blogging mostly revolved around money blogs. So he has more understanding of money blogging and can understand content marketing and product selling more than the one who equally invested time to learn from all types of blogs.
So he knew he could start and manage a money blog with more confident to be successful money blogger with his hard work and consistency. He eventually started his flagship blog Be A Money Blogger in 2014. I have been a frequent visitor to his page after I met him at an Internet Marketing platform called Kingged.com, and was having a good rapport with him since then. To my surprise I noticed an Epic post in his page in 2014 without any comment, to that, showing my surprise I posted a comment and he promptly approved and replied. Please check out those comments screenshots below:

Conceiving ideas is his biggest craze. He admits that sometimes he feels big embarrassment in his craze of creating unique things. All the techie issues irritate him a lot. Yet another interesting thing about his blogging is his ability to give attractive and eye capturing title he gives to his posts. I am sure most of his blog post are crowd pulling only because of his wonderful titles. As I used to tell often and I mentioned in one of my posts elsewhere on these pages, that one cannot bluff their readers by just giving some attractive titles and when you go through the content there will not be found anything related to that title. Mi Muba is an exception to this and he always sticks to his crowd pulling titles and he gives what his readers expect from that title.
As per my query, he said that he spends at least ten hours daily to manage all his blogs. At weekends he does work but only for two to three hours on Saturday and Sunday.
He says that without a list one can earn by chance but with an email list one must earn money with his selling skills.
He stresses upon the need of market segmentation. Instead of picking a broad niche like personal development he advises to pick the niche of improving your communication skills and sell more products with a lot of variety to those who really need such products.
He earns money with Google AdSense from his green blog because there he has a huge proportion of unique visitors. Most of the keywords of green niche have monthly searches nearing 100k so it is easy to get huge traffic and earn with PPC ads.
According to him, a narrow online local market is the biggest hurdle to make money blogging easily. In Pakistan where he lives 10 percent, people don’t make their purchase decisions after reading a blog post, unlike the American market where 77 percent people do this. In Asia online supply side is so higher than the online demand side. In simpler terms, almost 100 bloggers write a review on an online product but those who want to buy it are hardly 1000. He continues: “It means the market of each blogger is evenly 10 online visitors. So local bloggers try to expand their outreach to regions where online demand side is so big. But there they face language barriers and cultural differences. But by and by online business is getting common all over the world. That is why so many Asian and African bloggers and internet marketers are doing great and have become icons in their niche.”
He also says, in any field of showbiz one can become a mega star by giving one great hit. Just take the example of PSY who ruled the singing world with his song “Gangnam Style”. Check out this popular video:
It never happens in blogging. Hard work of a few years can make you earn your full-time living but to be a blogging icon you simply need to put yourself into it. Just pick the ten most successful bloggers of any niche. All of them must be in this field for more than a decade. So patience and hard work is the only way to become a successful blogger either you accidentally jump into this field or start a blog after fully learning it.
I am sure many of my readers can say one or two sentences about this amazing blogger from the other side of the nation!
I am really so happy to present you again to our readers here as the Blogger of the Week”
