Everyone knows what a blog is, or at most has a fair concept of what it is.
However, the vast majority (99.9%) are unaware of the real financial benefits that a blog can provide.
It requires only a little knowledge, patience, and imagination.
It doesn’t matter if you enjoy Nine Inch Nails or Barbra Streisand and Barry Manilow, monster trucks or snakes and spiders, or if you like Nine Inch Nails or Barbra Streisand and Barry Manilow.
You need to realize that there are an unlimited amount of niche categories out there and once your blog is properly monetized (to make income in the form of cold, hard cash), the money will start coming in.
Let’s start by deciding where to start.
Don’t use a free blogging service that suits your needs.
This will make you childish and cheap for your target audience, and it will cost you a lot of money in the long run.
Also, the ads that will be shown are likely to be from the hosts, not you.
Find a reputable hosting provider or business. Make sure they have a lot of uptime and do some research on the internet.
Next, choose a feature and a name for your blog that is catchy and appropriate.
Always do your homework and fix your specialty.
If you narrow your focus too much and be too precise, you’ll only reach a small audience and have little chance of ever making a lot of money.
For example, if you like spiders, don’t limit yourself to brown spiders or black widows only as this will out-compete all other attractive, popular, and even poisonous arachnids, What people like to read about.
Choose something that you are both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about.
Your readers will notice if you don’t care about the issue and are just interested in making money online.
Take some time to develop some ideas, and after narrowing it down to three or four, go online and check how popular these concepts are.
Of course, if you enjoy politics, Obama, Reverend Wright, Hillary Clinton, and John McCain are among the most popular candidates (Bush revisited).
Don’t say, “I don’t know anything that interests everyone,” or “I don’t know anything that interests everyone.
” It’s a cop-out, and it’s actually taught paralysis (a term coined by Anthony Robbins).
Whether you believe in God or not, we are all unique individuals with unique abilities and experiences.
Just consider this for a minute.
For example, what makes you angry, sad, or joyful.
Perhaps you are a single mother with many children who wants to write about your family’s growing-up experiences?
Perhaps you are a part-time stock investor with some fascinating insight?
Maybe you like horses, tortoises, dog breeders, and so on.
You might want to discuss some work-related concerns or experiences with others.
There are individuals out there who want to learn from your experiences in every field you can think of.
Another advice is not to be too hard on yourself. Recognize that your skills will improve over time.
It’s the same with everything: practice makes perfect.
Once you have chosen a title and a niche, you should start creating content for your blog.
This is an important point.
And don’t create long-tailoring and keyword-stuffed pieces aimed only at search engines, rather your target audience.
The most important thing to remember is to write for your audience.
Put quality over quantity, and never copy or pass off other people’s articles or content as your own (this is plagiarism, and it now fits into Google’s search algorithm – it makes your content look like yours).
The search will push to the bottom of the results, possibly even the supplementary index, where it won’t receive any traffic – and not only that one page, but your entire site may suffer the same fate – it’s worth it. Not there).
Don’t be concerned about your content length or SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
It used to be important, but search engines like Google are getting smarter, and they make a profit by providing the biggest search results.
Every so often, the best content will organically come top-notch.
Many authors produce hundreds of thousands of the lowest-quality, useless pieces, and information I have ever seen.
The funny thing is that one well-written post or page of information can easily outperform all their low-quality publications in terms of individual page views and viewership.
90% of bloggers, in my opinion, fall into this low-quality category and then ask why they don’t make any money.
They get tired and give up in the end.
Here is one of his tips on how to make money from a blog:
That was all there was to it.
Do you believe that anyone reading this will be successful with the blog?
What are your thoughts about the readers of the article or material?
At best, it’s a disaster.
Whatever topic you want to cover, whether it’s politics, religion, cars and trucks, sex, music, Armageddon, or anything else, you should aim to present your audience with the highest quality information possible.
Another important thing to remember is that quality is content.
Then there’s monster stuff, sometimes referred to as linkbait.
Linkbait is content that is so amazing that it attracts a large population of people to link to it, blog about it, and so on.
This is the standard you should aspire to in your writing.
An excellent linkbait of content or article can automatically get you a million page views.
Few bloggers (a select few) have this linkbait thing perfect, which is why their sites generate millions – yes, millions – in monthly ad dollars and income! Keep in mind that no one wants you to write like this right away, but you’ll get better as you create more content.
You have to do it.
The golden rule of linkbait and writing is to try to give something of value to the internet and your audience for free.
Teach kids to save money in a creative way.
What about a new method for memorizing 100 scientific names of animals in preparation for a biology exam?
Whatever your area of expertise, you can make a significant contribution.
When you first start your blog, just write. Don’t worry about generating money right away.
If you don’t intend to make money online, your readers will be a lot more friendly and devoted to you at first.
Many viewers will turn off if you immediately start using Google Adwords or any other form of advertising.
In general, it is better to wait until you have 50 to 100 pages of sufficient content.
Also, try to upload your content regularly.
Don’t wait a month before publishing 40 articles a day.
Because of this, you are most likely to be penalized by Google and other search engines.
Article marketing and other related spaces, such as ezines and such, will undoubtedly come to the fore when you produce your articles and content.
Yes, many people claim that doing so can give you incredible results.
Why on earth would you spend time creating amazing content and giving it to someone else?
This is my point of view, which is held by the majority of the higher echelon of bloggers.
For one or two backlinks?
It’s hardly worth it, given that Google and other search engines already exclude connections from article sources like ezines and the like.
What about traffic?
It’s not worth it because the bulk of the content (99%+) resides with ezine articles.
If you’re lucky you might get 1%, but if you do a check, you’ll find that the actual pass-through and then the purchase percentage are very, very low.
It is better to keep your articles and information for personal use.
Now it’s time to monetize your website once it’s up and running.
Now that you’re old enough, your readers won’t worry if you lose anything, and if you do, they’ll be replaced by the end of the day.
You can use advertising services like Google AdWords, Adbright, and others, or you can become an affiliate and sell other people’s products, or you can become a real entrepreneur and sell your own products.
As you surely know, the simplest things in life are the least worthy of your time.
However, Google and PPC (pay per click) are the simplest, and you can be active in less than 5 minutes (after they approve your account, which can take a day or two).
In general, Google and other PPC ads pay between $1 and $20 for every 1,000 page views on your website.
Do not try to increase returns by cheating; You will be traced, and you will lose everything.
The affiliates come next.
You can register with any of the millions of firms available, including Walmart and Target.
On average, the return is higher than PPC because you can now earn from $20 to $50 or more per thousand clicks.
The problem with affiliates is finding the right company with a solid track record of long-term payouts.
Many individuals are attracted by substantial rewards, just because the firm collapses or something like that (it’s a solid return from Walmart or Target just like the stock market on which you’ll be paid is much better than a promise of 200 percent more) from an online gambling site that can be legally or similarly closed).
Maintain your sense of self and stick with well-known brands you can trust.
Finally, there is the option to sell your goods.
It provides the best return of the three income streams, but it also requires the biggest effort because now you have to set up another virtual firm and sell everything from t-shirts to widgets.
Whatever it is, you have to design, package, ship, and provide customer service for it. It’s not an easy task as you get older.
However, like everything else, bigger duties come with greater rewards. In general, one can estimate a payout or income of $1 to $20 per hundred page views (these figures are from publicly accessible Internet sources).
See the difference here?
Selling your item – whatever it is – pays off ten times more.
This is one of the most fascinating aspects of blogging.
You can combine elements from all three and see what works best for you.
Use Google Adwords and maybe have an affiliate or two, and start selling different product ideas that you find out what works and what doesn’t.
This way, you will be able to earn money online while experimenting with new ideas.
Many new technologies, website concepts, widgets, and other innovations have arisen due to this process.
You can also enlist the help of your friends, and the more, the better.
This will make it much easier to develop new information and topics to write about!
That’s all there is to it.
In short, this is the secret of a good blogging start.
“If you build it, they will come,” as it was rightly said in the great film Field of Dreams.
In the blogosphere, it’s a similar story: If you try to do some research and expand on it while keeping the quality in mind, people will come.
And if you try and keep challenging, improving, and contributing to keeping it going, you’re well on your way to financial freedom and beyond.
Remember that some blogs are worth millions of dollars or more, while others are only a few years old.
It could be you.
It can and does happen.
I hope you take this to heart and create something incredible as a result – I’d love to see it happen. Just keep in mind the main law of life: if you serve others, you will be helped tenfold.
