Have you been searching on google on “how to make money blogging”? Well, if your answer has been a YES, then I have some quick tips for you in this post, which can help you get started on the right foot!
So do you want to learn exactly How To Make Money Blogging?
Here’s 5 very important points that you must keep in mind even before you start.
1. What Do You Really Love?
The first step is to know what your blog topic is going to be focused on. This has to be something which you have a lot of knowledge and experience in already.
For example, I write a lot about blogging, making money online and entrepreneurship.
The reason I write a lot about this, is because this is my area of expertise.
2. What Are You Going To Sell On Your Blog?
Once you know your topic, the next step is to find something to sell.
You can either sell physical products from Amazon, or digital products from ClickBank etc.
The bottomline is that even before you start blogging you need to have something to make money off.
I have a lot of buddies who promote hosting, domains, software and other apps thru their blogs.
In my case, I promote a viral blogging system which is more like an online franchise model.
3. What Is Your Level Of Commitment?
When you search for ‘how to make money blogging’ on Google, you will surely stumble on tons of articles on this subject.
But the big question is, ‘what your level of commitment’ to make this happen?
It’s very easy to get lost with information overload online. But the key to making money thru a blog is to commit daily to publishing.
4. Do You Have A Hunger To Learn New Stuff?
Especially when it comes to blogging, SEO and other social media strategies, things keep changing every single month.
The key to staying ahead of the curve is to dedicate at least 1-2hrs a day in learning something new in this space.
For example, I learn a lot from my mentors on the Empower Network as a part of their Inner Circle Mastermind group.
By being plugged into such a group, I not only reduce my learning curve, but also have the opportunity to share this knowledge to my readers through my blog.
It’s a really fulfilling feeling when you learn, do and then teach the same thing.
5. Do You Have A Proper Traffic Strategy?
You may write the best content in the world, but if you don’t have readers coming in to your blog, it’s just a waste of your time.
There are many traffic strategies: free traffic & paid traffic.
I would recommend that you start with free marketing strategies and then once your blog starts making some money, then you can reinvest a chunk of that money into paid methods such as solo ads, Facebook PPC, etc.
