Although it took them years but now they are playing in millions. When I was young, I did not knew that people can make money by blogging, and at times I used to think that how people can make money while just writing articles. When I started blogging, I then realized that how worthy is it and how much we can make from it. So today I have decided to tell you people about how to start a blog so that you could make dollars that you could use to become rich. I am sure you will be able to start a new blog after reading the article. I will tell you about some of the ways thorough which you be able to make money.
Setup a Blog
When I started as a blogger, I did not much about the technology and tools to use. I just knew about some of the functions of WordPress and then with the help of other online tools, I managed to take a start and earned money. Let me tell you about how you can do that, as the time has passed and there are a lot of change in technologies, now you can even take a start if you do not have knowledge about the new technologies.
First thing that you need to do is to decide about what topic you will write, think about it and determine your brand name. Think and decide about the program that suits your cause well. After you have decided, you need to host your blog or website, for that purpose find a host where you can host your website for the minimum amount of money.
When you have chosen your host then the next thing you need to do is to select the name and domain of your blog. Make sure that you select a suitable name and domain for your blog so that it could make sense and it could represent your cause. Try to select that domain which seems interesting and catches the eye of other people. After that you have to select a platform from which you will manage your blog and in my opinion, WordPress is the easiest one to manage. After that you have to sign in to your account and just write. This is as simple as you could have thought of. If you already have a blog then you can make money quickly otherwise you will have to establish your blog and get some traffic on your site.
Now as you have set up your blog, it is time to make money. There are many ways through which you can make money through a blog, so let’s go though some of them.
This is the idea through which many bloggers has earned millions of dollars. Most of the income from a blog belongs to affiliate marketing. In Affiliate marketing, you refer products and services of people and earn a useful amount of commission when someone buys that product or service. The most common example of affiliate marketing can be Amazon. You have to put the product link provided by Amazon to your blog and when someone buys a product from Amazon though that link, you will earn a commission. Apart from Amazon, there are number of different companies that will pay you for putting their products and services link on your blog. Online stores and websites, marketplaces, Survey companies like Swagbucks need bloggers and other people that can connect them with customers and uses so they are ready to pay for that. If you want to make more money, you should make a plan that is effective and you should then work accordingly.
One of the things that you need to do if you want to make more by affiliate marketing is that you should create some content around the products and services that you want to share. Write in a way that it sounds like a genuine one and one more thing that it should not be on a direct sales pitch. When you want to put a link on the content make sure you put it as a bonus not as a main theme so that it sounds more genuine. If you keep your writing goal to help others, you can make a good deal.
The second thing that you should keep in mind is that you should put links in to blogs that are relevant to them. If you have links that are relevant to the blog then they can increase the value of your blog. You should try that the affiliate link that you are putting on your website should not sound like an ad because people do not like ads. You should put that link that make sense and helps people about the topic you are writing on.
Now if you have done all this but still you are getting nothing then that means your site does not have much traffic. A site without traffic is an empty junction that means nothing. You need some traffic on your blog and for that you will have to take some steps. The first thing that you need to do is to write good content that attracts people. People read blog for either entertainment purpose or for information purpose, make sure you put some quality content that fulfils one of the requirement of the user.
To get more traffic on your blog, you can contact with other bloggers and ask them to promote you. You can also promote your blog on social media, use Instagram, Facebook and Pinteret for this purpose. Try to be friendly and helping with your readers this can help you to get a positive image. Other than that if you have some money then you can hold drawings and giveaway on your website. This way people will visit your website to get a free reward.
Earnings from Ads
Have you ever been to blogs and websites? Have you ever noticed the ads there? Earning from ads is one of the basics that a blogger can do. Google Adsense is a platform from where you can get your mostly income. You do not need money or anything to take a start with Adsense and it is easy and simple to sign up on Google Adsense. You will have to install Google Adsense on your website and then they will place ads on your website. Whenever someone will click on the ad, you will earn a commission.
One of the best thing about Google Adsense is that they work to keep the ad relevant to the article. For example, if you are writing about clothes then Adsense will put ads related to cloth stores. This can make the reader interested and you can make a deal. In the start, you will not make much but as you start growing, the amount you will earn will increase gradually and you will be eligible for those companies that require blogs with high traffic.
Another way to earn money by blogging is to do freelance writing. You can write for other blogs and earn money from them. Other than that you can also use the website to advertise your own blog by putting your links in to article. To get a job, contact other bloggers, read their posts, let them know what they are lagging in the post and offer them that you can write for them. Other than that many blogs and sites are constantly hiring bloggers for their website and blogs, so you can apply on them. This may take some time in getting a suitable job but when you get it make sure you keep your words by writing quality articles and completing them on time. Try your best to write what your clients demands and write what that attract readers. This way you can make a positive image of yourself.
