How to blog for money

blogging for moneyI often get this question from people who approach me. How to blog for money exactly?

You may be wondering how people make a killing from blogging. Yes, you can make significant amount of money from blogging, provided you have a clear goal of what outcome you want from your blog. You need to be ready to write on your blog daily. Just blogging once a week or once a month will not get you results.

Some people invest money into driving paid traffic to their blogs. If you have some money to invest, I highly recommend it. If you don’t have money to invest, getting your own blog is the very first step to making money online. Some argue that you don’t need a blog to make money online. But in my personal experience, a blog has been the best personal marketing platform to promote any business and, most importantly to connect with my subscribers and followers. People associate you with your online presence. The stronger your online presence is the better it is for people to come to you for business. This is exactly how to blog for money.

How to Blog For Money

Your blog can be used to showcase your expertise and skills. You will attract like minded people with the same interests. You do need a domain name and a basic webhosting to start blogging. I go through these in details in Val Geerken 10 days bootcamp, I invite you to check out Wealth and Money blog, and sign up there.  Once you have your blog setup, your content can be published immediately.

I know some people who started their blog entirely free by using web 2.0 services like weebly, blogger.com, etc. They were disappointed when they found out that their accounts were suspended. There are many disadvantages to free blogs. They don’t like ads and for the most part, you are at the mercy of their policies. However, web 2.0 properties are extremely powerful to build backlinks from. So if you have your accounts at these sites, you can write individual posts and point back to your blog. The start up costs to starting a blog is minimal, and it is well worth the money.

Once you have your blog up, you can literally promote anything you want. You can sell affiliate products, you can promote MLM products, etc. For example, if you are not in any business opportunities, then you can sign up for free account at Clickbank and start promoting something in the Clickbank marketplace.
