Having been doing blogging for quite some time, I know a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t. I am no expert per say but I have made money online from time to time and you can see that in the last few months. Today I want to talk about what steps are necessary to make even the unexperienced blogger the chance to make money. This can be easy and hard at the same time because of just how much you have to work at it. I want to take these in steps to better help those who might need help.
Why do you want to make money online??
That is a great question to ask yourself because of so many answers that would definitely make your head spin. I don’t know your reasons but I would like to share you mine. There are several reasons for me right now.
Hosting — This can be a few bucks a month to over $100 a month and that alone can make or break you.
Domain — Another one of those that can make or break you. If you buy a domain that isn’t being used then it will only cost you a few dollars a year but if your looking to get a domain that is higher up it will cost a one time fee that could be thousands.
Extra income — This is one of those that you have to be willing to understand. Not that you will have a success or failure but that you will make it only through time.
No job Currently — I am not working because of the economic recession that is going about so I have all this free time to blog.
I like to Blog — I have been blogging for years Sept 23, 2007. Wow has it been 3 years, man time has flown by!!
As you can see, I have many reason why I want to make some money. It just depends on who you are and why. Mine is just because I need to make make not because I want to. It is something everyone can do and not just the rich. I can’t say that I have made more than I need in fact I am still working on getting better advertisers back to my blog but that will always take time.
Where you going to make the Money?
Just Now since you know why You are wanting to make money, you next question you should ask yourself is “what are you going to advertise?“. Just because you have advertisers on your blog doesn’t mean you will make any money. You have to consider who your audience is. Just like mine, I think about what my audience is. For example, Just because I wear glasses (Contact me Profile) and thus I can recommend a great Online Prescription Glasses to buy your glasses, if your looking for new glasses. You should also consider what you will be doing with your blog and how you will do it! Having a place to go to order prescription glasses online helps me buy them really cheaply and in the privacy of my own home. I don’t think twice about buying them online now or in the future.
Will You be reviewing Products?
like I started to review products for example, I did The Cricket Wireless A600 Modem and went from there to other products like Justhost Hosting. Can help bring in revenue continually because people are always wanting to find out what others have thought about a certain product and hear people’s comments on them. This can be a great way to recommend products to people left and right because the audience will trust you if you are honest about and passionate about the review your doing.
There are no shortcuts!
Yes I am sure you have heard this from people left and right but let’s be honest. Some people are going to be very dishonest. Having seen enough Scareware on my blog you know that some people will do almost anything to make money even if it isn’t moral or legal! If you are going to make money, you should work hard and make your audience loyal. Loyality can give you so much momentum to keep you blogging and reviewing that you will have income coming in every month.
Have a Good Friday, See You Monday!!
