Before you learn how to make money with a blog you should understand both what a blog is and what it requires. Almost everyone likes to share their own personal point of view. People have a need to share information and personal point of views and blogs started as a way to do that. However as time passed, the use of blogs has expanded beyond that purpose.
It will always require some effort to actually make money. This is true for every successful Internet Marketer out there, and almost any other really rich person. They had to work to get to that point and become successful. They also had the right tools and knew how to use them. You can’t be successful in anything without the right tools, and that especially goes for internet marketing. Although there’s a lot of bogus internet marketing “systems” out there, a few of those systems actually work and give you the right tools you need to be successful. One of these systems is discussed in my new post, which I’ll include a link to in the resource box. Feel free to check it out after reading this article.
This is where you highlight the notion behind the blog’s conception and how you came up with the idea to create the blog. In this part, you have to describe specifically the idea, research result, niche analysis and your targeted audience.
The length of a blog will of course vary depending on the content. Just bear in mind that for SEO purposes, there needs to be enough written content to optimise, as well as some images wherever possible.
Once you have made a new post, don’t forget to ping it! Pinging basically sends out an alert to various top blog directories around the Internet that your blog has received a new posting. This drives a steady stream of new visitors to your blog all the time.
You might think your little blog is already a star. If so go ahead and online blogs enter a few blogging beauty contests to see if it will snag a prize or two. Nobody willing to give you a prize? You can create a few of your own and make yourself the sole recipient. I’ve done it and it works quite well, actually.
Be particular about the font type and size you use. The text in your posts is the heart of your content, so it’s critical that the text is easy to read. You want to achieve the perfect balance, avoiding a font that is so big that it overtakes the whole page or so tiny that your readers find it difficult to read the text.
And don’t forget to tweet out the link as soon as you post something on your blog. Twitter is an amazing promotional tool whereby almost anything goes. And don’t forget to be responsive to RTs (ReTweets on twitter), SHARES on Facebook and comments in blogs. The more responsive you are, the more friends you make. Remember, friends is a very big thing when it comes to promoting a blog.
