Someone asked me a few days before about my next step to get a 6 digit paying job, well my answer was blogging. Now why do I really think that this thing will pay me well off? I am not a hard core blogger or programmer neither I have any hidden talent that can hit the market but then I searched and worked a lot and finally concluded that yeah sitting at home and can make my wallet heavy! So sharing a one stop guide for making money.
#1 Setting up a blog or a site
Making blog is easy firstly buy a trust worthy domain name which suits your blog, link it with blog or website creators like wordpress etc. Add a free or paid theme. Add necessary plugins for subscription, comment box etc. Finally you are ready to create your first post. But in order to either check your interest or you really wanna try blogging then start with taking free domain like this with .wordpress.com as further extension to it’s name. But remember success comes only after struggle so be ready for it.
#2 Create excellent content to establish real relationship with viewers
Frankly speaking even if you create the masterpiece blog of century you will get nothing, it would be just as you are speaking in front of your class and nobody listening. But it is the only time to work your patience and go on working hard. It takes time, effort and even money to get traffic to your blog. Either you wait and continue with your work to get traffic or can indulge into someone others blog and write for him, build your own traffic. Like I was reading a guy’s story how he worked for his friend who was running a famous blog. He wrote for him, increased his viewers, as well as created a vast audience for himself. Even before writing his first blog this dude already had over 13000 email subscribers. And that’s really good figure and now he is making 100k USD per month. I am not saying that this happens to all but working hard, creative, and smartly surely pays well.
#3 Way’s to publicize your blog to really make some cash in your pocket!
See guys creating content and traffic is necessary to make money but you have to work really smart when you have got to hit the market either sell the space on your blog or sell the products yourself. I mean when you can make 3-10x more profit by selling products then why not to sell yours. For selling products it is needed to make efforts, ask subscribers, make surveys on your blog and come out with something that your majority audience demands, work on it and as this is your platform convenience viewers to buy your goods. These could be your written ebooks that teaches playing guitar or sell iphones for your retailer (indirect referrals to your ‘links’ through your ‘links’! )
This type of marketing has its own profits, firstly your site remains clean so more viewers are attracted. Secondly, you can target the whole audience from medium to multimillionaires. For example majority audience cannot afford your 1000$ product but if only 1-2 products are sold than it is more profitable than selling a cheap product to vast audience. But not to mention quality is provided accordingly and content should be worth spending money. It is the first step to increase sales, build authority and being trustworthy.
But some of us will likely be calling as we don’t like selling than ponder it for a moment. If you are making money doing what you do, you would be called a “professional.” And therefore, a professional of any sort, be it musicians, authors, consultants, doctors, makers of widgets is in the business of selling too. They’re selling products, services, art or any number of things.
As a professional blogger, you’ll be selling.
Selling premium content, membership communities can be a great source of income and again saying far better than Pay per clicks like AdSense. During span of time people have developed advert. blindness, moreover sites look like spammed and you will cost your viewers just for few cents! Also these tactics work if you have got very high traffic, which is not possible enough to be realistic these days.
#4 Speak out loud!
How to attract viewers? how do I follow a blog? Telling from experience and being realistic, the blogs which say more in few words, are logical, interesting are tend to be followed and visited instead of blogs telling shit in their respective era’s. But I should conclude that being to the point doesn’t mean that you should write short content. Large posts tend to attract more viewers and is good for your blog’s health!
Always write examples, show analogy, covering stats and surveys, diversify interesting content. Always remember you don’t just make an income, make a living from it because if you are passionate about your work you can generate revenue and if it’s a hobby then the revenue can be less but still if it’s worthy and well written it can pay off.
You need to be yourself. There’s nothing new under the sun, that’s true. Everything online is just a repackaging of what already was there. However, there is no one that can repackage something in the way you can. Tap into your uniqueness. Under these millions and millions of blogs if you wanna show up be unique in your writing, use simple and understandable words yet be creative. If you want to make money blogging, especially a full-time income, you’ll never work harder in your life. But you’ll probably never have so much fun either. Go for it!
