Make Money Online with Blogging
If there’s something you’re passionate about, you can create a blog (website) where you can write about and share your passion. This can be a blog where you share your passions about any topic you are interested in. The content on this page is merely to identify the task of making money by being a blogger. If you want more detail on How to Start a Blog or what blog topics to choose, read the content here!
In order to succeed as a blogger, you would need to be a half-decent writer with the ability to make people interested. in what you write about. Your content should also be based on topics of interest to others so that you can build a following online. You would also need to be in a position to post content fairly regularly to a blog (twice a month at a bare minimum).
Blogs can be monetized in several ways.
Some ways are to have companies pay you to post their advertisements (this is better for blogs with a lot of traffic), or to put Google AdSense adverts on your blog. With this option, Google pays you every time someone clicks on an advertisement. For new bloggers (or blogs) I recommend searching for alternative Advertising Networks, other than Google AdSense, since it can be difficult getting Google to approve your account when you blog is still new.
Other ways to monetize you blog is by promoting other peoples products (Affiliate Marketing) or to create and sell your own digital or physical products using your blog as the marketing vehicle of such products. You can also use your blog to promote services you offer, much like a business website.
Becoming a Blogger…
you have two primary considerations to make:
1. Do you want to use a completely FREE Blogging Platform?
2. Would you prefer a Self-Hosted Platform (which incurs running costs)?
If you opt for the completely FREE route, the two most popular options are:
Whilst both Blogger.com and WordPress.com are 100% Free to use and easy to maintain, they do have several disadvantages as opposed to a Self-Hosted Platform. Do your homework and decide for yourself which option would suit you better, but I strongly recommend going with the Self-Hosted option from the outset.
How much can you make out of blogging?
It can take some time to establish a blog, but the income potential is huge. Some bloggers are making millions from their blogs, whilst other are barely covering their costs. Your earnings will vary based on traffic (visitors) you get to the blog, and how interesting your content is. To make serious money you need to take this seriously and you need to learn the various skills involved in making your blog a success. The flowing all play an important role in your blogs success:
- How often you post content
- What you posts about & how relevant it is
- The types of advertisements you put on your blog & where you place them
- What products you promote and are they relevant to your readers
- How you promote the blog itself (Advertising, Social Media, SEO etc)
