Internet Marketing: Blogging for Profit
Internet Marketing: Blogging for Profit– Increased people are coming to realize the enormous potential of blogging.
The search engines love fresh content and since blogs are updated frequently, they give the search engines what they want, in return the blogs get a high rank in the search engines which results in a lot of free traffic, everyone wins.
If you want to start blogging for profit, there are a few basics that you need to keep in mind to get the most out of this potential.
Here are a few points to keep in mind as you set up your online blogging business:
There are always varying opinions on what makes the best blog platform, the two top contenders are WordPress.com and Blogger.com. Most internet marketers I know recommend WordPress. It does not matter too much which one you choose, just find the software that you feel is the most comfortable using.
Stay away from using the free WordPress or Blogger services. I know when you are just starting out you might not have a lot of money, but this is not the place you want to cut corners.
Why? Because if you use the free services, you do not own anything, you must abide by the terms of service (TOS) of whichever site you are using, and these TOS can change often.
If you have a profitable site that is getting a lot of traffic and the company updates it is TOS and you no longer complaint, your blog will be gone. No discussion, no warning, just gone. While that does not happen too often it is a risk you should not take.
Buying a domain name can be as cheap as $6.50, for that amount you will own that domain for at least one year, you will also have the option of renewing it after the year is over for the same amount.
A hosting account can be as cheap as $9 a month. Both combined are a very minimal expense but you will own something, it is worth the investment.
If you want to monetize your blog so that you can make money there are several ways you can go, two of the most popular are Google AdSense and affiliate marketing. Google AdSense is a system that you can sign up for, it is free, that will place ads on your blog that relate to the topic of your blog.
Whenever one of your visitors clicks on an ad you will earn a commission. This is not going to be a huge revenue stream, but you can make some easy money just by doing what you are already doing.
Affiliate marketing is when you promote a product or service on your website with a link to a purchase page. The link has your unique affiliate ID embedded in it so when a purchase is made from that link you will earn a commission. Many marketers believe that combining these two types of income streams is the best way to go.
Blogging for profit is one of the easiest, yet most profitable ways, to start an online business. You can learn the basics in just a few days and make some money in no time.
