When it comes to creating a successful website or blog, you really need to plan out why you are creating a site in the first place. Most people think it comes down to just creating content and putting it out there, but that’s only a minor detail in the whole scheme of things.
Here at BloggingTips, we go through new content creation ideas and case studies all the time. Today we are going to break down the concept of how to create a niche site around mobile spying apps. Why mobile spying you ask? Simply because it’s a hot niche right now, one that has a lot of advertiser money flowing around it and also an area without a ton of competition.
How to Blog about a Mobile Spy App
Mobile devices are the hottest thing right now and everyone is searching for new ways to do different things with their phones. It doesn’t matter if it’s an iPhone, Andriod or any other provide, there is a massive audience out there waiting to learn through your mobile focused tutorials.
A good example of this would be the concept of “jailbreaking” a phone. A quick search through Google Keyword Planner shows the following traffic numbers.
As you can see, just a quick glance at the keywords available shows a lot of opportunity. Now think about the scalability should you create tutorials on jailbreaking all devices and software updates. The benefit is also here that you could rank organically in the search results and pull in a decent amount of traffic from this as well.
In summary, billions of searches are made monthly for mobile related questions, topics and tutorials — it’s a huge market that is still in it’s infancy.
The Mobile Blog Monetization Play
Once your content is created, you won’t really need to mess around with new updates or adding a lot of new content to your site. Focus on your core topics and tutorials, then put in the time and effort to promote them effectively. After your content starts ranking in the search results or gets picked up in different mobile help forums and social media, you can then start focusing on different ways to monetize your content.
A great way to do this would be through the use of a relevant mobile application affiliate program. A perfect example of this would be a company like XNSPY, which also has an affiliate program that pays between 40-50% commission on all referred sales.
Since the aim of your blogs is to create awareness about mobile usage and applications, your blog must offer the reader an incentive to consider purchasing applications you recommend. At the same time, it must provide the reader necessary information about the product. Ideally, you must talk about the features the app offers, compare it with other similar apps, and allow the reader to willing choose your product over others. This is where marketing tone, choice of words, and approach matters. You don’t have to come out as pushy so that the reader must buy your product. Rather, be suggestive of it and allow the reader to opt for your product willingly.
To make the most out of your mobile application site, be sure to implement the following quick tips.
Follow SEO Guidelines
Following SEO guidelines in your writing is important. This will help Google detect your blogs and direct customers to your page. You must place the keywords in the right place within the content and you must use them in the right keyword density. Ideally, the keyword density must be between 1.5-2%.
Make Catchy Titles
To blog about the spying app, you must come up with creative and catchy titles. The headline is the first thing that either can grab the attention of the reader, or lose the readers’ interest.

Understand the Mobile Spying App
Before blogging about Xnspy or any mobile application you are going to review, you should first have a complete understanding about what the product does and how it provides value to your audience. A great way to do this would be through watching reviews on YouTube (like the one below), or even creating one of your own.
Focus on the Features of the App
Your blogs must talk about the different features that the app has. You have two choices; you can mention them with brief details in a list format, or you can make subheadings of each feature and discuss them. Because Google is sensitive about use of keywords, make sure you use the right keywords in a natural flow with the content.
At the same time, make sure that it doesn’t stand out as odd, and do not over use them in the blog. Keyword spamming can get your website into the bad books of Google, and you don’t want this to happen.
For the sake of an example, bloggers who write about XNSPY can focus on the following features and mention their benefits.
- Jailbreak and No-jailbreak editions
- Monitor SMS and iMessages
- Monitor IM Chats (WhatsApp, Skype, Viber, Facebook Messenger) etc.
- Monitor browser history
- Monitor GPS locations
- Use Geo-fencing
- Remote control
- Payment options
To improve your chances for ranking for multiple long tail keywordslong tail keywords, you can also plug each of these features into Google Keyword Planner to get a better idea of what people are currently searching for, then building content around those areas.
To offer the reader an easier understanding about mobile applications and how they work, you can insert screenshots of different “how to” instructions too. These help create self-help content for customers and does increase customer base because more people would want to use the app for its convenience.
A perfect example of how this is being done on other sites can be seen on HowWiki. They break down every process on their site with simple screenshots to keep the user engaged at all times.
When creating content for your site, links are key — however it’s not just money links and call to action links that are going to be important. Be sure to incorporate a few of the following link types into each of your articles.
- Internal links – Links to other content found on your site.
- Money links – The main call to action or affiliate link.
- Authority links – References to other well known and established sites.
Google wants to see sites that link to authority sources and have a mix of inbound/outbound links on their site.
Conclude with Call to Action
After offering the reader enough incentive to purchase your recommended mobile app, you need to conclude with a call to action. Try to keep it simple, less salesy, and optional.
The most important thing to remember is to keep your content valuable at all times. Thousands of people are going to be accessing your sites and reading your tutorials and guides. The last thing you want is for them to get to your site and then leave because it’s not offering what they were looking for.
Follow these tips to create a profitable mobile app tutorial and resource site, while also utilizing the power of long tail keywords and social media to send high quality traffic back to your site.
Do You Get Lost in Blogging Busywork?
My prime business intent going forward is to get my 124 ebooks in 1 billion places. That’s it. I will promote other opportunities of course and prosper through multiple channels but it is a billion with my 124. Hold me to that. Wait a second. You won’t have to hold me to that. I’m pretty good about being accountable to myself.
Anyway, it’s been fascinating to see moments of my mind attempting to pull me to blogging busy work. You know exactly what I mean. For me, my day is largely about promoting my ebooks through Twitter, Facebook, blog posts, guest posts, Live broadcasts on Facebook, my podcast, and videos on Twitter as well. Other than promoting a few other opportunities, I do not intend to do anything else. But of course my mind tries to pull me toward blogging busy work at times. How does my sidebar look? Is my sidebar converting enough? What about blog comments? Should I open comments on specific old blog posts? Each question indicates some type of busy work that is not genuinely important or business building for your blog. Of course, most bloggers spend a fair chunk of their days on busy work and wonder why they struggle and fail so horribly. If you spend most of your time doing what does not matter, you will fail. But if you spend most of your time doing what does matter, creating and connecting and opening multiple streams of income, you will succeed. Blogging is that simple.
But blogging is not comfortable at all because even though we intellectually know to avoid busy work, our fears pull us in towards the silly activities. Some bloggers spend weeks or months or even years doing stuff that ultimately does not matter. Why spend hours on your blog design when it’s the content you create and the connections you build that lead to your greatest blogging success? You have to be honest with yourself when it comes to blogging. Being straight with yourself makes the difference between success and failure.
I usually catch myself within seconds to minutes of being engaged in busy work that does not really make a difference. I scan my email in seconds. I am down to that number now. But I recall my struggling days when I would be in my email for 20 minutes or an hour or longer every day. I tried to read every word of every email. I tried to engage every silly sponsored post pitch. Huge mistakes. I wasted so much time on what didn’t matter. You know what matters? Creating helpful content and building genuine connections with human beings by helping other bloggers. Do these things and you position yourself to succeed. Add income streams and you position yourself to become a full-time blogger, just like I discuss in this eBook.
Blogging is simple but uncomfortable. Creating and connecting feels uncomfortable when your fear pulls you toward busy work. Ego is like that. The mind is like that. It makes a mountain out of a molehill by pulling you away from core, business building blogging activities towards stuff that waste your time. I have never looked at a heat map in my blogging life yet I’ve circled the globe for the past eight years as a professional blogger. Feel free to spend a few moments checking out heat maps but when moments become hours, you’re messing up. You’re too engaged in blogging busy work. Help people freely and generously. Trust in the process. Open multiple streams of income. Promote your core opportunity the most, like me promoting my 124 ebooks. Success will find you.
Do You Reject or Accept Opportunities for Growth?
I just wrote and self published this ebook in a little over 24 hours:
not bad, eh? I asked my readers for ebook ideas. I received answers. I wrote the ebook. I really hustled on this one. I’ve already generated a quick sale. How? I accept opportunities for growth immediately. Do you feel the same way? Or do you reject opportunities for blogging growth? Be honest with yourself. This is not a comfortable process for bloggers to follow because your ego may sting a little bit.
Blogging struggle is borne of rejecting opportunities for growth. Blogging success is born of accepting opportunities for blogging growth immediately. I opened another income stream within 24 hours based on seizing an opportunity immediately. No hesitating. No hemming and hawing. No delaying. Other than sleeping for a handful of hours I did nothing else other than write the ebook, proofread the ebook, add photos and publish the sucker during that 24-hour stretch. Oh yeah. I also did some networking and content creating and yes, I promoted a handful of my 123 books. But I wrote ebook number 124 during that time frame too. Why? I love blogging. I love freedom. I love seizing opportunities for blogging growth.
Emerson said all life is an experiment and the more experiments you make the better. This wise man knew the secret to success. Seize the moment and squeeze all you can out of the moment by accepting opportunities for blogging growth fast. If a reader nudges you to write an ebook, write the darn ebook. Do not delay. Unless you despise writing, and you probably don’t because you blog, write the ebook, help the reader and make money. If one reader has that issue than 50 million readers have that issue. We are all human beings with pretty similar problems when you break everything down.
How quickly do you reject opportunities for growth because you fear something or someone? My most lucrative freelance writing client basically had to beg me to work for him. I so deeply feared I would not be worth the money he was paying me and I also feared his criticism, even though he was such a nice, warm, genuine dude. After he would not accept me saying no, I accepted the job and made a pretty penny over the course of our relationship. I learned my lesson. Now I gobble up opportunities for growth so quickly it’ll make your head spin.
I could go to bed right now to take a quick nap. I just worked for the long stretch to write the e-book and release it. But I gobble up this opportunity to write a guest post. Again guys, I accept opportunities for growth and grow like a stinking blogging weed.
Do not ignore opportunities because you fear seizing blogging opportunities because ignorance leads to struggle, failure and quitting. Seize the moment. Seize opportunities for blogging growth. Write the guest post. Broadcast live on Facebook. Upload a video to Twitter. Write the ebook. Convert it to audiobook. Create a course. How do you think I retired to a life of island hopping? I did not sit on the sidelines folks, waiting and waiting and waiting for opportunities. I seized opportunities for growth quickly and more opportunities flowed my way. Opportunities seized, multiply fast. Opportunities rejected disappear immediately.
Seize the blogging moment!
No Blogger Can Force Clients Customers or Readers to Learn and Succeed
Sometimes you just need to get right to the point with blog post titles. This is one such title and blog post. After answering questions for readers recently I made a realization. Honestly, I’ve had this realization in mind for many years. I guess I never chose to write about it. But today I will cover the topic. You cannot force a reader, client or customer to learn and succeed. This is just not possible. You cannot will someone to see what they are not prepared to see or do what they are not prepared to do.
Sometimes, coaches struggle horribly because they base their success or failure on the success or failure of clients. This is lunacy. You can show a horse the way but you cannot force the horse to drink, right? Ditto for human beings. You can coach someone but you cannot force them to do what you advised them to do. That is 100% in their hands. In truth, the best blogging coaches, ebook writers and consultants are at peace with doing their best job and leaving it at that.
I regularly answer questions for free, offering experience, helpful advice for new or struggling bloggers. Said newer struggling bloggers return within a few seconds with more questions, trying to find a different way to succeed, trying to find the quick shortcuts that lead to guaranteed failure. I release these people. Although I have compassion for fear-filled new and struggling bloggers, it is not my job to convince them of my 30000 hours of blogging experience. Either they’re smart and listen, humbling themselves and their ego. Or they make the foolish decision of trusting their fears over my 30000 hours of blogging experience. Either way, I have nothing to do with their outcomes. They choose to listen or to ignore me. I’m cool with that.
Be clear with the fact that most humans live predominately from fear so until they change their programming through a personal decision they will ignore good advice and follow bad advice. Self-fulfilling prophecy. In the same regard, you can trigger emotions in someone that allows them to follow your successful advice. Someone may open up and learn from you if it’s their time to open up. Totally their personal decision that has nothing to do with you. This is why I never get full of myself. I understand everybody’s life is their choice. I can show the way. You choose to follow or ignore. Nothing to do with me.
Stop wasting your energy trying to convince, manipulate or flat-out force clients and customers to do what you advise them to do. Offer your advice. Detach. Some folks will follow your advice and succeed with their blogs. Other folks will ignore your advice and continue to fail. You did what you could but now it’s up to them to use your knowledge and experience for their benefit. Keep helping people. Keep meeting new people. Don’t get attached to clients or customers. Offer tips and leave it at that. Every human being is fully accountable for themselves. You are a blogger, not a babysitter. You inspire but you’re not a savior. You can try but you can’t force people to do anything. Be at peace with this truth and you will become more successful than you ever dreamed. Most bloggers never succeed wildly because they never scale, being heavily attached to a few clients or customers. Highly successful, happy, free bloggers keep meeting and helping new people and allowing those people to find their own way. I am responsible for no one but myself. This is how I’ve lived the life of my dreams.
