Make Money From Blogging – Is it Possible?

Well? CAN you make money from blogging? Rob Benwell certainly thinks you can. He says he’s been earning from blogging for the last 4 years, and has made a fortune doing so.

In 2006 he put all his ideas together and published an eBook called “Blogging to the Bank”. It proved very popular – making, as the cynical side of me says, even more money for Rob. That eBook has been updated a couple of times to keep up with changes in technology. It’s now up to version 3.0.

Having fallen on hard times myself, as have many in this financial crisis, I stumbled on Rob’s ebook, put my hand in my pocket to the tune of $37.00 (23.11 UK pounds at today’s exchange rate) and read through it. Silently betting that, knowing my luck, I’d probably missed the boat, I decided to have a go at this blogging to the bank business. So, after downloading the package I settled down to read “Blogging to the Bank” version 3.0

First impression was that it was written very clearly and in an easy-to-follow manner. Then again I’ve worked with computers for over 30 years so I very much hope that I would be able to follow it.

At least Rob doesn’t make any claims that this is an easy “get-rich-quick” scheme. He explains that a certain amount of time effort and even some money will have to be put into building a blog that earns money. All the software quoted is primarily PC-based, but as a long-term Mac user I’m used to that. There have been changes and updates to the software, and the way it works, even since the version 3.0 update.

Now we come to implementing this system. It flowed nicely, until I came to the optimisation pages. That advises an auto-responder. Now I have I web host that I get on well with and which doesn’t cost much money, so I used that rather than the one Rob recommended. They have an auto-responder system, but it doesn’t collect subscriber’s email addresses. The technical support at my web hosting company suggested a free piece of software that could be easily installed. I went for that, rather than pay for the auto-responder software Rob recommended. And it took quite some time and effort to get this software (phplist) to work with the blog.

I fixed it, but needed to do some delving into the code to tailor things. I couldn’t honestly advise that unless you know exactly what you’re doing. But having done that the site is up and working.

Is it making money? Well, not much, yet, but hardly anyone knows it’s there, which is the vital element in making money from a blog.

More recently Rob is advertising a “free blog” worth, he says, $497. Quite how he gets that figure I don’t know because all the posts and information are available with his “Blogging to the Bank” version 3.0. But it does include a simpler script for setting up your first blog.

So – is the “Blogging to the Bank” system worth getting? Well, the jury is still out on the money-making aspect, but otherwise it gives you clear instructions and lots of free stuff to get you started on a blog with the chance of making money from it.

The 3 Basic Principles Of Effective Business Blogging

Although simply a resource that was used on a personal basis for many years, blogging has blossomed in the business world in recent times, with more and more businesses realising just how beneficial having a business blog can be to their organization as a whole.

The problem that many businesses face is that although they have often heard of blogging and understand it in its most basic form, this is where their knowledge ends and once they’ve got their business blog set up, they don’t know what to do next to get it off the ground – and keep it off.

If this sounds familiar, the following three points should be read, read and read again, as they are what are considered to be the three basic principles of effective business blogging.

1. Knowledge of your market – although you might think that this is a given, as if you’re a business owner looking to develop a business blog, you’re going to understand your audience, this unfortunately isn’t always the case and it’s far too easy – and common – for business to produce blog posts that bear little relation or are of much use to their audience.

Business blogs are to be utilized first and foremost as a way for a business to communicate with their customers, but if you don’t know your market, you’re going to struggle to produce relevant content until you take the time to develop your understanding of the people you’re aiming your products and services at.

2. High quality content – whether you produce it yourself or you hire someone to do it for you, the foundation of any successful business blog is the provision of content that’s both in high in respects of its actual written quality, as well as in terms of what’s being written.

This is a part that’s often misunderstood, but there’s absolutely no doubt that one well written piece that focuses specifically on your target market is always going to have more of an impact than half a dozen poorly written pieces that are only slightly related..

3. Understanding of a blog’s capabilities – it’s hard for many to believe that something which is in effect so simple can be gotten so wrong so regularly, as many people use a business blog to do nothing more than upload content, when the truth is they have so many capabilities.

It’s not a necessary requirement to utilize a blog to its full extent, using every single feature that the platform offers,but it is important that you’re aware of what a blog should be used for – communicating with your customers – and know how to get the best from it for your own needs, as it’s always best to master small sections a little at a time, rather than using every single aspect at once, but doing so badly.

Business blogging is something that every organization needs to be doing to develop their online presence and although it might seem difficult at first, these three principles are what make up an effective business blogging strategy for any organization.

Wedding Planner: Blog Topics to Promote Your Services

You are starting your career as a wedding planner and you want to be able to promote your services online. You decide to make a blog site for yourself. But in order to attract visitors and potential customers to your blog site, you will need to post interesting topics and articles. This is one of the best ways to market your services to potential clients out there.

Bear in mind that the person you are talking to is the bride. They are the ones who are mostly looking for a wedding planner to help them with all the wedding preparations. Your topics should catch the interest of the bride and here are some suggestions for blog topics: First is to write about what the bride needs to do and think about. This includes budgets, guest list, wedding venue, catering service, wedding dress, entourage, flowers, wedding cake and reception. As a wedding planner, you should give them detailed advice on how to deal with these things.

The next blog topic you can write about is something that is a favorite for most brides and that is budgeting. You should write a blog post about budget tips to help the bride save money on some expenses for the wedding. As a wedding planner, you should be able to give them helpful tips on how they can save money and where to get the best supplies for their wedding day.

The third topic you can write about is the do’s and don’ts of planning and organizing a wedding. Brides will often look at these topics to help them with their wedding preparations. A checklist of the do’s and don’ts in wedding planning can give them a heads up if they are doing anything wrong. As you are promoting your wedding planning services, make sure you put that hiring you as a wedding planner is one of the do’s they should do.

Another good topic to tackle is the family of both bride and groom. Cultural differences are unavoidable but should be equally respected when it comes to marriage. As a bride, you will need to consider your family’s cultural background as well as your soon-to-be husband as to not disrespect any member in both your families. You can give specific tips on how a bride can handle such obstacle in planning for her wedding.

And lastly, you can write a blog post giving detailed advice on how the bride can prioritize things for her wedding. As a wedding planner, I’m sure you know what the first things to handle are and giving some advice about this will greatly attract brides into your blog site. It is very important that you do not forget to market yourself in all the blog posts you will be putting. Perhaps you are writing about all the things the bride should handle and segue to advice them that hiring a wedding planner can be less stressful for them.

How to Make Money From Blogging – Tips on How to Earn a Second Income Through Blogs

If you want to generate cash through your blogs you must learn the basics on how to make money from blogging. As you might already know blogs are getting more and more complicated because of the software that is needed to run various blog contents and the purpose for the creation of it had become more critical too. Today, a blog is not just a mere online diary but it had already evolved into a money-making business potential.

The business opportunities that a person may get from a blog are very encouraging but a lot of people fail to achieve their goals due to a few reasons. It is important to know how to make money from blogging because it is not as simple as everyone thinks. Many first time bloggers believe that once they had created a blog and they regularly post a content that is already sufficient for them to earn money. Unfortunately, in order to generate cash, you need to attract a large number of audiences so that the advertisers will notice you and begin considering your blog domain as a possible venue for their ad placements.

The easiest answer as to how to make money from blogging is to advertise on your blog through the various advertising programs such as Google AdSense, CrispAds, and BlogAds. Of course, you have to choose an ad that is relevant to your topic so that the chances that a reader will click the ad post will be higher.

Another way so that you can generate income through your blog is by selling your own products and affiliate products. If you have a website, you can link it to your blog because they complement the products that you sell. But if you do not have a website, you have to concentrate on a certain product and search for companies that you think are the best providers of the product. This works like a referral business where you can earn a certain commission from each product sold.

Aside from carefully planning a blog post, learning how to make money from blogging is very important to fulfill the purpose of generating better income through blogs.

How to Make Money Online With WordPress and Other Blogging Sites

WordPress is probably the number one free blogging platform in today’s society. Thus thousands of bloggers around the world use WordPress to power their blogs (including me). But how can WordPress, a FREE blogging platform, earn you some significant income? Here is a step-by-step guide showing how to make money with WordPress.

1.) Select a Niche

The absolute MOST IMPORTANT element of a website/blog is the niche. Choose a specific and unique niche you feel comfortable writing about. For example, if you’re really good at web design, write about a specific part of web design such as coding. Make sure that your niche isn’t vague, because then search engines like Google and Yahoo! will NEVER find your website/blog.

Once you’ve chosen your niche, brainstorm some articles you can write. This will help in the long run; trust me, you don’t want to start a blog and half a year down the road you have a sever brain fart and can’t write any more articles. Make sure your niche is specific but broad enough so you can write at least 2,000 articles on it!

2.) Create Your WordPress Blog

You need to create a WordPress blog. WordPress is a free blogging platform, but you will need a website first, and the website needs to be hosted one of two ways: Free Hosting or Paid Hosting.

Free Hosting

If you’re looking for a free hosting service to host WordPress, the best solution for you would probably be WordPress.com hosting. I recommend this option because it is 100% free and from WordPress itself! The WordPress platform automatically comes with the free web hosting service from WordPress.com (as the name suggests) and you won’t have to worry about all the complications of web hosting (name servers, updates, mysql databases, etc.)! Plus, setup is a breeze and you get to choose your own domain (has to be a subdomain of WordPress.com though). Trust me, free WordPress hosting doesn’t getting any better than WordPress.com!

Another option would be finding free web hosting services and installing WordPress manually. This is not recommended because it takes a lot of hassle finding a 100% free web hosting service with a good up-time and support for WordPress. I would definitely recommend WordPress.com hosting over free web hosting.

The last and worst (in my point of view) option for free WordPress hosting is self-hosting your website. This is the MOST complicated process as you have to port forward according to your router, install a self-hosting service such as WAMP, and get a free domain from No-Ip.org (subdomain of course). The worst part about it is that your website will have absolutely NO bandwidth due to the fact that you yourself are hosting your website. I’m not even going to go in-depth with this; you can Google how to self-host WordPress because I will not waste my time explaining my least recommended method of free web hosting.

Paid Hosting

Paid Hosting allows you to have complete control over your WordPress blog (you can write whatever you want; with WordPress.com hosting you have to abide by their terms of service). Bloggers often use this to their advantage, as creating beautiful-looking templates and site design is a breeze with paid hosting. First, you’ll need to find a good web hosting service. I recommend HostGator because (in my humble opinion) they are cheap yet offer the best support and compatibility for WordPress. With HostGator, simply sign up (you get a free domain with any plan) and in your control panel you can 1-click install WordPress! Once you’ve installed WordPress, you’ll be good to go!

3.) Get a Theme, Configure WordPress Widgets, and Start Writing Stuff!

Once you’ve set up WordPress, I recommend selecting a theme. WordPress has a large variety of themes, and you can decide on which one suits your blog the best. The second step after installing WordPress is installing widgets. Widgets are special components of your WordPress blog that each have a specific function.

In my opinion, SEO, Backup, Cache, and anti-Spam are the widgets you absolutely need. Other fancy widgets are up to your discretion. After installing the widgets (you can decide which ones you need and which ones you don’t), get ready to write! Remember step one? Hopefully you can already spit out a couple of blog posts from your brainstorming!

4.) Receive Traffic

As a webmaster, I really can’t emphasize the importance of traffic. You may have the BEST article on the planet, but if your blog’s only loyal visitor is your mom, the world won’t be able to see your beautiful writing. That’s why traffic is essential to your blog’s survival.

To start out, I immediately recommend you submit your site only to the top search engines (Google, Yahoo!, Bing). As a little precaution, I urge you to not focus on submitting your site to too many search engines, because most of the time search engines should find your website automatically.

Generating some beginning traffic is pretty easy, given that you have friends and family. Use FaceBook, Twitter, and whatever other methods to let everyone know about your website. Assuming that you know more than 50 people in the world, this should be pretty easy and you should begin to have some steady traffic. Not much, but steady.

Now it’s time to go public. One of the most effective ways to get traffic is to submit your website to the top directories such as DMoz (Google). However, since you’re just starting out, I don’t recommend this because DMoz literally accepts less than 1% of all submissions, and your site will probably be the 99% that gets denied. Submit your website to lesser known but trusted directories that guarantee indexing.

Once you’ve submitted your website to at least 10 directories, let’s move on to some more ways to earn traffic. Traffic-exchange sites are good as longs as they are MANUAL. NEVER join an auto-surf exchange site, as the traffic has no value since everything is automated.

Yet another free and effective method to get traffic is through free classified ads. Just Google “free classifieds” and you’ll find a load of websites that allow you to post advertisements for free. This is effective as it is not time-consuming, and thousands of top-ranked sites will be displaying your ads for absolutely no fee!

5.) Monetize Your WordPress Blog

So far, you should have a blog that:

  • has a unique niche
  • has at least 10+ articles/posts
  • is hosted by a trusted web hosting service
  • has the WordPress blogging platform (duh!)
  • has decent traffic (500+ visitors a day)
  • can be found on search engines such as Google

Now it’s time to reap your rewards for your painstakingly hard work! It’s time to make some money $$$!

The most effective and easiest way to earn a steady income is through advertising. There are many paths you can take. The most famous advertising service is probably Google AdSense. However, they pay ONLY by check, and that may be inconvenient if you wish to be paid by other means such as PayPal. That’s why there are loads of AdSense alternatives!

Clicksor

Clicksor is probably the main competition to AdSense. You can be paid in a variety of different ways, which makes Clicksor much more convenient than AdSense. Clicksor offers pretty much every type of advertising you’ll ever need for your blog; it’s an all-in-one solution for monetizing your blog.

One major problem with Clicksor and other all-in-one advertising solutions is that the advertising is HORRIBLE for blogs. In fact, some blogs lose traffic due to advertisements filling up more than 60% of your blog and annoying the hell out of the visitors. You can either take the risk of losing some traffic and making your website ugly, OR you can use an alternative monetizing method: In-Text advertising.

InfoLinks

InfoLinks is hands-down THE BEST in-text advertising. In-text advertising is effective because of its limited disturbance in your blog; it chooses random key words in your blog and highlights them, allowing visitors to click them, in turn generating income for the webmaster (in this case YOU). How can in-text advertising services afford to offer this type of advertising? Advertisers pay sites like InfoLinks to promote their products/services. InfoLinks hands that responsibility to webmasters like you and me, and we get paid in return for helping InfoLinks earn money. I hope I haven’t confused you. In the simplest terms, you get paid for showing links on your blog!

Now, how do we integrate such a great service into our blog? InfoLinks has generously created a WordPress widget that you can simply install into your site.

Follow the simple 1-minute integration guide and you should have in-text advertisements integrated into your blog in no time!

InfoLinks has a relatively high payout per click (PPC); on average, each click is $0.10. Let’s say you have 500 visitors per day, and 10% (50 people) each click one in-text advertisement per day. That gives you $5.00 a day, which translates to over $1,500 a year doing absolutely nothing! And that is only a mere 10% of your daily visitors! You could be earning some serious income with InfoLinks.

Regarding payment methods, InfoLinks pays by either PayPal or Check. Pretty convenient for me.

Other Monetizing Methods

There are hundreds of ways to monetize your blog, and InfoLinks is just one of them. Another 100% free method is affiliate marketing. In a nutshell, affiliate marketing works like this: major companies such as Microsoft pay you when you help them make a sale. Every time you refer a friend to Microsoft’s website and they make a purchase (i.e. Windows 7), you earn a certain percentage of the total sales (usually this is around 10-15%) from Microsoft. Considering the amount of traffic you already have, this can be a huge money maker. Try this method out, as it is 100% free too!

Many money-making solutions now offer WordPress widgets too, and you can monetize your blog to whatever extent you please. Just keep in mind that you don’t want more than 20% of your blog to be advertisements =P

6.) Have Fun Earning Some Free Money with your WordPress Blog!

Once you have accomplished all or most of the above, you have succeeded in creating a monetized WordPress blog earning you around $2000-3000 a year. Remember that more writing = more visitors = more traffic = more ad-clicking machines = more $$$$$$$$!

A very important note is that a monetized blog should not be your main source of income. However, making $2000+ a year is extremely good considering the fact that your visitors do all the work!

CONCLUSION

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this article and can apply some of my methods to start earning some significant money online with your WordPress blog!

Mediterranean Diet Meal Plan for Beginners

Are you searching the Web for a Mediterranean diet meal plan for beginners? You will find the majority of plans are broken down on a week by week basis. You will then find that each week is further broken down into the main meals that you can consume and the healthy snacks that you can eat throughout the day.

If you find an exceptionally designed plan, the meal plan will also include detailed information about the amount of saturated fat, protein, calories, carbohydrates, fiber, cholesterol, and calcium your daily intake of foods will contain. The latter information will allow you to monitor your eating habits from every angle, and you will be able to ensure you are getting all of the nutrients and vitamins you require on a daily basis too.

You will find that a Mediterranean diet meal plan for beginners is filled with foods that have unsaturated fats and antioxidants too.

As you check out the various meal plans on offer, make sure you really like the recipes offered. If not, you can also substitute one acceptable food item for another, provided that the fat and calorie content are within the diet’s guidelines. For example, if a diet plan recommends that you eat peaches and you really don’t care for them, you can substitute the peaches for strawberries. If a meal offers you a fish recipe and you prefer poultry, that’s perfectly fine too. You will find that these plans are highly adaptable for your personal needs and likes.

A Mediterranean diet meal plan for beginners will include beverages too. You can consume water, diet colas, and diet ice teas. If you want more flavor in the iced teas you can use lemons to add additional flavoring. Flavored seltzers are also allowed and all beverages that are calorie free can be consumed when on the Mediterranean plan. It is recommended however, that you limit the consumption of coffee, tea and other caffeinated beverages to no more than three full cups in a given day. You will also want to cut back on your use of sugars; an appropriate sugar substitute will suffice.
