If I told you that you could make money blogging by sitting at home and just writing what would you think?
Well to be honest with you it’s not that easy. Some marketers may tell you it’s that easy to sell you a product. But realistically it’s takes a little more work than that.
The object of this article is to show you different ways to make money blogging.
Advertise To Make Money Blogging
You have to advertise. I will say that again you have to advertise. Most bloggers don’t. So they never make any money. That simple…
You can get some visitors by blogging everyday but not enough to make any decent money.
You must create a good blog. I have several other articles where I talk about what you need to have a good blog.
I also promote the John Chow course on blogging. The course is very cheap and will take your blog from start to making money with a ton of visitors.
Just follow his blueprint and you have everything you need to create a good blog.
You Need Readers To Make Money Blogging
You can have the best looking blog in the world but if no knows about no one will come. That means you make no money.
By using good keywords in your blog posts you will get some visitors. If you do good keyword research you will get even more visitors.
And the more blog posts you do the more visitors you will get naturally from the search engines. But that’s a fairly slow process.
I used to tell people to blog for 30 days in a row like I did in January. Now I say write something, do an audio or video for 90 straight days.
Is that hard? You darn straight. 30 days was tough for me. I had several other things going on at the time. This blog had already been around for a year. So I just wanted to do something for 30 days.
But if your blog is brand new go for it. Blog for 90 straight days.
Now let’s move on and make some money.
Make Money Blogging With Advertisers
To get advertisers you will need visitors. The more visitors you get the more you will be able to charge advertisers.
But there are ways to get advertisers without a whole lot of traffic. How?
Companies will pay you to put links and banners on your blog. You don’t have to go to individual website owners for this.
There are companies that will do this for you. Check these out below.
There are many others but if you don’t have a huge amount of traffic yet you can start here.
Another great way to help your blog make money is to link to other blogs and websites. You may think by linking to other blogs you will be sending traffic away from your site.
But the benefits over time will far exceed the few visitors that leave your blog. You may get a link back from a site that has been around a long time and has a high volume of traffic. Some of those visitors will visit your blog.
I have started checking google search for my main keyword I use in an article. I will look at the top blogs on google for that keyword and link to one or two of them.
You Can Use PPC To Make Money Blogging
When I first started online this is how I started making money immediately. I used Google pay per click. But then keywords got to expensive to buy. It was very hard to make a profit.
But there are other sites like Bing you can use to do PPC. Just google pay per click and you will find several. Test the waters with just $10.00 a day to start.
PPC is the fastest way to get targeted traffic I know of.
Selling products on your blog is the number one way for you to make money blogging. You can sell your own products or you can be an affiliate and sell other people’s products.
Most marketers do both. If you sell someone else’s product all the work is done for you. You just need traffic.
John Chow has a lot of great methods to drive traffic to your blog in his course. I also have traffic methods other blog posts on this site.
So you can see there are a lot of ways to make money blogging. I just touched on a few big ones here.
