A Beginner's Guide to Making Money Through a Blog

Okay, so there are a million and a different resource that explains how to make money online. Many of them are obscure and repeat the mantra, similarly to "Follow His Passion". It's all good and good, but it's not very specific. I know the real trick and I'm willing to share with you. I'm going to 10 simple steps. Here they are:

  1. Choose a niche you know about. Some people may say this is your passion, but I'm saying this is just something you know a lot. If you like it – it's a bonus. If you know a lot about bookkeeping, but you want to become a professional player, you can both blog. If you suck in the pool, the accounting blog until you get better in the pool.
  2. Creating content for this gap This can come in many forms, but I find this formula works very well:

    1. Describe the ten (well-written) articles that deal with this section
    2. Write two articles about yourself and why you're an expert in this booth.
    3. Write four guest entries, just like the original ten items written for the cabin. It really helps to summarize the original ten articles through the four guest entries and link them together.

  3. Place an online space for publishing content. This space can be created in many forms (Facebook fan sites, Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress, etc.). I prefer WordPress, but not limited to the platform. If you do not know how to create websites, just start a site at WordPress.com and start publishing content. If you build this area, please, please change the default theme to something that readers will enjoy.

  4. Timetable for Publishing Content The twelve articles already posted should be submitted regularly: 3 weeks to 4 weeks. There is a link in the resource below section. It's important to note that these will not be your only posts, but will include the meat of your content. Always publish what you dined last night or something. Ad-hoc entries that give your blog personality.

  5. Get traffic to your blog from related sites and blogs. Every week, every guest has to send guest visits every week, so every guest must send a guest entry per week. These guest entries will be INSTRUMENTAL to generate traffic to your site. Make sure you regularly comment on these peoples blogs. If you have a supreme commentator module for your blog that does not have "nofollow," try to put it in the list.

  6. Use social media to create the following: Use the following social media pages to manage traffic and create the following.

    1. I suggest you launch a twitter account specifically for the blog. This allows you to monitor the specific tracking of your blog, rather than linking them to the main account. Use the main account to promote the blog if you have enough followers. You want to build your Twitter followers to the fullest extent possible, so that when you upload new content to your blog, they will be sent to twitter feed.
    2. Get started on a Facebook fan site and help your site reach all your friends. Use the same principles as Twitter. Facebook's turnover is much better than Twitter, but much smaller. It's harder to get fans, but if they do, they'll be fine.
    3. Send any articles Digg, Reddit, and StumbleUpon. Be sure to try them for as many occasions as possible, so ask your friends to think about it / damage it.

  7. Ask users. Be sure to comment your blog and respond to every @replyre twitter. Involving users is interested in them and they are important (because they are!). Whenever someone comments on your blog, answer them instantly – especially if you have something amazing to say.

  8. Refinancing. Most people buy their blog right away, but this is a very bad idea. Ads tend to lead people when they are on their faces. My first monetization rule keeps your ad on the site until 1000 unique hits arrive daily . While you work 1000 unique units a day, try some LIGHT contextual ads with affiliate links on the products you're talking about. Do not surely do more than one affiliate link per post. This may be too much, depending on the audience. Do not take step 9 until you reach this point

  9. Sponsors and contests. Why did I say "Do not do step 9 until you get [1000 uniques a day]" ? Because you do not have the chance to get sponsors until you reach that point. You are also host to your own competitors and to afford the costs, but if so, your investment and risk increases significantly. Compete with other blog posts about your blogs, commentary competitions, twitter tournaments, and so on.

  10. Repeat steps 2-10. Steps once a month until you can go to your true passion. With this method you can spend 2-3 days at the beginning of each month, write posts that really build your blog's meat. Slow release allows content to get a bit more freedom over time. Make sure you update your posts every 7 days.
