Start Blog and Make Money – You Can Do It.
It was one of my goals last year to start a blog and make money. I am pleased to announce that not only did I start two blogs and three websites but I also made money.
How to start a blog and make money?
How did I go about starting my very first blog? I found a training website that set me on my way.
I did a lot of research and chasing my tail as shiny objects looked good but didn’t pan out once I had forked out money for them. Sound familiar?
Sometimes you find an opportunity that makes all the difference.
I now have four blogs underway and three websites for my offline business. Full steam ahead for 2019.
I know that it sounds so easy, just start to blog and make money. It does, however, take a fair amount of time and effort to put it all together and make it happen. You firstly need to learn the best way to get your website up and running. Education is the key.
Next you need to work out what you want to write about. This is referred to as niche research. A niche is another word for topic, subject or market. Wikipedia describes it, in relation to the internet, as a focused, targetable portion of a market. In the training website we are taught to narrow that niche down so that we are writing for a particular audience.
Once you have a blog set up and know what you want to talk about you will need to find out if there is an audience looking for help to solve problems in this niche. You will need to research and write information that will help them, and research and offer products that they will need to solve their problem. You now have a blog that can be monetized.
Now you have a blog how can your audience find you?
There are three main ways you can be found.
1. Through the search engines as people type or speak into search.
2. Free social media and other internet marketing and promotion.
3. Paid Advertising.
The main search engines are Google, Yahoo and Bing. You need to learn how to write good quality content that they like. This is referred to as SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The training within the website I am a member of focuses on always presenting a quality website and optimizing it so that it is liked and promoted by the search engines. There are many ways to advertise and market your website, but if you can get traffic from the search engines it makes life so much easier.
One of the best ways to get noticed is with the use of keywords. Within this website there is a keyword tool that will help you research wording for blog post tiles and headings. Knowing how to research keywords and having the tool to do so is essential to your education and success.
You will learn how to set up social media profiles and share your website content with them. You will be taught how to use paid advertising. This training comes both from the training program itself and from the community. The community is the membership, who are all creating online blogs and businesses and share their tips and ideas with others. I have a full review of this wonderful website and I will link to that review at the bottom of this post.
Can you think of something that you are passionate about that you would enjoy researching and writing about constantly? You do need to be continually writing. My earlier blogs got a little scattered and part of my 2019 goals is to start reworking them and now that I have this blog underway, I will be writing more regular posts on the others. This is my third blog and I started it at the beginning of January this year.
This blog I designed to showcase how I am traveling for work and yet finding time to write and make money online through my blogs and my websites.
I have a blog about my health and how I am trying to live a lifestyle using the minimum amount of chemicals in my food and life in general.
My original blog is also about making money online and whilst is similar to this blog, I cover my more personal thoughts and share the actions I am taking and my progress as I build and market. Just a slightly different niche to this one.
Learn as you build.
I have been able to learn as I create my websites.
This training website that I mention has been my salvation and the key to my success.
Now that I have completed most of the general training within the website, I am confident that I will continue to grow my audience and continue to make money through affiliate referrals as well as e-commerce sales through my other business websites.
I will be reworking my other blogs now that my training is at a higher level. This means that I can apply new skills to revamp tired posts and improve my blogs in the eyes of the search engines. I have spammed social media and now intend to increase my knowledge of social media promotion, the correct way. Many members within the community of this website are making money through social media promoting and I will be learning from them and applying that to my own promotion.
Do you want to learn how to start a blog and make money?
Blogging is something that you can learn to do and I believe if you can write, you can blog.
You will need a computer as it is very hard to accomplish this on a telephone and obviously an internet connection.
However, there have been people who have started off using public computers.
If there is a will, there is a way. Sometimes if we really want to make it work, we can.
If you have any questions, please ask in the comments section below. I will be happy to answer to the best of my ability. You can follow me and share this post on social media. You will find share buttons on this post.
