How To Make Money Blogging – Some Important Tips
There are many ways to make money, but in this article we will discuss how to make money blogging. When people think of blogs, they usually see it as a place to share your thoughts and opinions. Now while this is absolutely true, a personal website in the 21st century is a bit more than that.
Blogs have become a great tool for marketers to make money. If you have been in the marketing business, you know that the most important step in generating profits is socializing with potential prospects. This makes sense because I couldn’t imagine myself buying something valuable (except groceries) from a person or business I don’t know off.
Types of Blogging:
1) Blogging only for money – this is one of the most popular ways to make money. Your job is to create a blog with powerful unique content, rank it high on Google and then earn commissions for every sale made from your website. Sounds simple, right? Well, it’s not.
There are so many factors you need to consider when starting an affiliate blog:
1) Your content must meet the On-page SEO standards (your targeted keywords must appear in the first sentence, be underlined/italicized/bold; your keywords must also be in the h1, h2, h3 tags) + be at least 500 words in length.
2) You must build quality, often relevant high PR links. Newbie marketers make the mistake of building hundreds and thousands of backlinks on junk pages, and then wondering why their website is rotting in the depth of Google.
2) Blogging for Business.
This type of blogging is very complicated and not very many people have the patience to follow through with it. Unlike blogging for commissions, your job is to build a brand around your name or your website. You can achieve that only by:
1) Writing quality, in-depth articles. You will really have to bring your writing skills to a new level. Every post must change your visitors’ life; you need to teach them something new or educate them on something they don’t know.
2) Socializing with people. Blogging is all about building connections. That’s why you will need to have a YouTube account, Facebook page or group, and a Twitter account. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to register yourself on sites like Digg, Delicious, Google+, Stumbleupon and Reddit.
