Make Money Online

If you do a Google search about making money online, you can be overwhelmed with the number of money-making ideas on the Internet. Everything from making money fast, making money easy, how to make money, XX numbers of making money online…well, you get the picture.

The question boils down to simply, if money can be made online then HOW does one make money online? That, as they say, is in fact the million-dollar question.

Today we look at online blogging to make money online

Blogging is one of the simplest, least-costly, and perhaps easiest ways to begin making money online.

Let’s break down a couple elements of what making money with a blog will consist of. This isn’t, by-the-way an all-inclusive list just one that will hopefully get you thinking and perhaps motivated to start writing.

CONTENT

First content is everything. You have something to say and guess what, people ARE interested in your opinion IF it’s genuine. The content you write about should be a subject you are passionate about one you like to talk about or write about whether it pays or not.

FREQUENCY

If you write a blog you need to decide how often you will post to the blog. The key here is to be consistent. Whether you decide to write, once a day, once a week, biweekly, whenever; be consistent. Don’t disappoint your readers. If you aren’t sure how often you want to post I suggest a longer frequency to start. You can always “ramp it up” as you get more comfortable. Start writing weekly at first especially if you aren’t sure what exactly you will write about at first. The longer time between blogs will give you a chance to come up with more ideas.

PLATFORM

Most professional bloggers…that’s why you’re here right…use the platform WordPress to write their blogs. If you start your blog on a shoestring you can get a free account with www.wordpress.com. One of the downsides to starting a free blog site is that you can’t advertise and that will severely limit your ability to make money online.

If you want to make money online as a blogger you need to install WordPress yourself on your own domain and webhosting service. WordPress, YouTube, and Google have PLENTY of more information about how to do get up and running.

MONETIZING YOUR BLOG

Most new bloggers will begin earning money by signing up as affiliates and allowing text and banner ads be placed on your blog.  Other forms of making money include Pay Per Click ads, private advertising, and memberships. Volumes can be and are written about ways to monetize your blog and I’ll save that for a future post dedicated to monetization. Suffice it to say, however, affiliate sales account for how most successful blogs make money.

Blogging Can Be Overwhelming But You CAN Make Money Online

What I’ve talked about barely scratches the surface of beginning blogging and making money online. I haven’t discussed Google Search Engine Optimization (SEO), using keywords for searches, signing up for Google AdSense, and on, and on.

Don’t despair, however, as in future articles we’ll roll up or sleeves and look deeper into each of our elements so you can make money online!
