Do you blog? If not, you are missing out on a booming business, not to mention the latest fad on the Internet. Everyone is blogging these days – your Grandmother is probably blogging if she has a computer!
The advantage to the first method is that you can post passionately, regularly and with great ease. You won’t have to contrive your prose. The downside is that it could take a while to build your audience, but if you do succeed in this, then you’ll have a set fan base for the life of the blog.
So why are blogs so popular nowadays? I can think of a few reasons off the top of my head: For starters, it gives us a community in which we can easily communicate with people we know or never met about topics we share in common. With get inspired, we can show our unique personalities through our writing. Blogging just gives the world yet another way to communicate on a grand scale. There is virtually no limit to what you can post. Don’t be left out.
The next step is advertising your blogs. You can do this by joining various forums. Most forums or discussion boards allow you to have a signature with a link. Try to post interesting comments. This will make people curios to visit your blogs. The worst thing you can do is to invite people to read your blogs via email. This is considered to be spam. All you have to do is to get involved in discussions. Share your opinions and ask questions.
Now you have a blog and you’ve chosen what to write about. The third step is to monetise your blog. Making money blogging is dependent on incorporating two main monetisation methods into your blog. The first method is to use affiliate links, advertising products relative to your niche (e.g. an ebook on flower arranging). The second is to insert Google AdSense text advertising onto the template of your blog.
OMention your blog on appropriate forums. For example, if your company offers resume writing services, consider writing about your blog in job-hunt forums.
Instead of using blogs for spam, focus on building content-rich sites and getting high-value links to them. Don’t restrict yourself to just the SEO benefits of blogging. Appreciate the value that blogs can add to your marketing and public relations strategy and use them the way they were meant to be used.
