Three Surefire Strategies for Beginners to Make Money Blogging!
Do you find yourself wondering if people are actually making money blogging? And if they
are, how can you profit from blogging too?
For years I've searched the web for ways to make a profit. After relentless months of
floundering around on the Internet and making absolutely no money, I finally paid an experienced
blogger to coach me. A short month later I started profiting on the web. The coaching made
all the difference! I'll tell you the three surefire ways he taught me to make money blogging.
If you will put these proven methods into action, you can make money too. It can change your life!
For the newbie or beginner, let's first discuss the concept of blogging. To understand
what blogging is you need to understand where the word blog came from. A blog is an abbreviation
of the word weblog. A weblog is a type of website you can think of as an online diary. The
owner of the blog regularly adds content to the website by posting comments online just as
a person would regularly write in their diary. The content of the blog may or may not be of
a personal nature. For our purposes, to make money of course, the blog would not be written
from a personal viewpoint but from one of a business perspective.
Blogs can contain text, links, images, videos, music, or any other kind of available digital media.
The verb "blogging" is simply the act of putting your comments onto the website, or blog. The entries
are listed in reverse chronological order, meaning the newest comments are at the top of the page
and you have to scroll down to see the older comments towards the bottom of the page. Visitors are
allowed to interact with the blog by leaving comments or links on the same page as the content.
Now that you understand what blogging is, let me give you an example of a successful blogger...
Kyra lost 96 pounds over the last 8 months. Her success was due both to a popular diet
program and to a popular exercise program. She kept a diary of her daily exercise routine,
eating habits, and her weekly weight loss. Kyra has put up a blog on the Internet showcasing
her triumph over her weight.
She writes articles, reports, and weight loss tips highlighting the programs she attributes to her
great success. Both the diet and exercise programs have an affiliate program, and she provides
links to these programs on her blog. Kyra's success has made her a very popular blogger and she
has only been online for 3 months.
Both the diet program and the exercise program have a monthly fee of $28. Kyra's affiliate
programs pay her half the monthly fee for each month's sales. On average, Kyra sells to 15
visitors on her site each week. Almost all the buyers purchase both the exercise and the diet
plans. Kyra receives half the monthly fees, or $1680 per month.
This blogger could be you, and you could be on your way to changing your life!
For you to get started blogging there are three surefire ways to begin.
1. Choose a broad topic for your blog. The topic should be something you have some
knowledge of, or something you have an interest in. The broader the topic the better so you
can later promote more affiliate products on the same blog. Include your topic in your domain
name, or URL. For example, if you wanted to start a blog on body building, a good domain name
could be bodybuildingtimes.com
2. Make sure there is an affiliate program you would like to promote related to your topic
that has lots of promotional materials available. You can incorporate the ready-made affiliate
materials into your blog. An affiliate program that offers a monthly subscription is a MUST
because it will increase your profits through a recurring monthly fee. Wouldn't it be better to
receive a payment every month from a customer than to receive a one-time payment from
that same customer?
