How to Make Money Blogging

Bloggers are often asked how to make money blogging. There are various ways to generate an income from one single blog. It takes time and effort to generate an income that you can live on, but it can be done if you are that determined.

Articles and Posts

Before you can make any money on your blog, you are going to need to get traffic to your website. The fastest way to do so is to write guest articles for established blogs in your niche market. Tutorials are always a great starting point. Offer a few tips and direct your audience to your blog where they can read even more tips.

Posting on social media sites is also another great way to get traffic to your blog. Short posts with a call to action are remarkably effective.

Squeeze Page

Basically, your squeeze page is where you ‘squeeze’ people into giving you their email address. This is a landing page that you use to quickly capture their attention and persuade them to leave their name and email address in exchange for a small token of your appreciation. This gets them to your blog, where they, hopefully, becoming paying customers.

Authority and Reputation

As you generate more and more traffic you are also building up your reputation. It takes repeated exposure before people are familiar enough with you and your brand before they begin to see you as an authority on the subject. Becoming an authority, and building your reputation will take time, but the end rewards are well worth it.

One quick way to build your reputation and authority is to offer your readers something free. This could be a sample of your product or service, a tutorial, or a few instructional articles. Offering them something free, and getting their email in return, is a sure-fire way to get people to do what you want and come back again.

Advertisements

Once you have a steady supply of daily traffic, built your reputation and are on your way to becoming and authority, you should consider placing ads on your blog. Advertisers are only interested in blogs with a lot of daily traffic. Although they are the ones who pay to put their ads on your blog, it is the traffic that sees the ads which brings in income.

Selling Goods or Services

Your business will dictate what you sell to your customers. You might sell physical products, or a service that helps your customers. Some bloggers write eBooks related to their market and sell these. Others may sell affiliate products on their blog, getting commission for doing so.

Internet Marketing

Internet Marketing (IM) is the marketing niche I am currently interested in. Many people think that the Internet Marketing niche is equivalent to the “make money online” niche. IM is a niche where you teach people how to make money online. One of these ways is through blogging. There are so many opportunities and niche markets to be explored and used.

I use as many of these methods as I can. This increases my traffic and my sales. I sell IM courses as well as offer free products when people sign up and share their email.

I created my blog to teach people how to make money in IM. I also want to teach them all the other options available to make money online. I want to become an authority in the IM niche, and the first person people think of when encountering any problems in Internet Marketing.
