Anybody can sit down and have there own blog published within minutes of the day. Simply ask yourself what software do you want to use in order to begin posting your stories on. You have many choices to choose because the net is flooding with them and many more being created as we speak, the best of all is they are free to join. One of my personal favorites is blogger because the concept is very simple and easy to apply. My second best favorite is WordPress blogs because you have the opportunity to meet with great bloggers that are interested in writing as well however we are building our blogs for readership and to create a little income too, now lets get to it.
Hosting your blog is a option for you to take in hand, no matter how much you post on your blog you want to add some major style to it so I suggest you include that in your plan. Blogs are like journals, they hold information that you do through your day, think about personally, or share among others. Thousands of people have used hosting companies rather than free blog platforms because you have total control over the outlook of that blog after you have purchased a private domain for it. Name the website whatever you want or keep it close to your persona, or niche. The outcome of the blog (eg. looks, posting, designs) depends on what your imagination it turn into.
After you have purchased a website match it up with a theme that fits the subject you have in mind. Find these by using the major search engines to discover a theme to download. Millions of themes have been populated over the internet waiting to be downloaded and used on the blog. The style chosen represents who you are and the care that adores readers because clear representation. Uploaded a wordpress blog to the server? Search for a theme by going to themes and clicking on themes. There you will see “install themes”. Check the boxes, for color, and columns and search for your desired them. Everything is done from the front dashboard on the hosted wordpress blog.
Building dedicated readership is not hard at all. Pick a subject that you are focused on and begin writing about. The subject that is people today are interested the most in is finance, housing, internet marketing, celebrities etc. Overtime, readers will begin building up if you post an article once a day. The more unique subjects that are posted the more constant readers you receive. Overcrowding does not exist on the internet especially if someone stay focused that one subject that helps others solve a problem. Taking responsibility for how great one comes out on the other end of the rainbow when delivering useful information could insure success. Stay informed and update regularly with new information for readers to come back for more.
Start brainstorming for a couple minutes and then begin writing about things you are more passionate about. I do not spend too much time on a article that is not relevant to my theme and what I am trying to achieve. Some individuals tend to publish a behemoth amount of content at one time and spend about a hour creating a 1000 word article which is excellent if is helping the reader make a wise decision. Helpful information have recipes for disaster if not completed correctly. Short post should not be overlooked, but written if the elements inside are going to help individuals.
Blogs are like journals, they hold information that is done throughout the day, think about personally, or share among others. Before jotting down post think about what is readable and important for the reader. What is your target? Do you have a product to sell? Are you branding? These small factors going to be your factor for success in the end. Grab the attention of people by creating something that creates authority to take action. Time goals for the day and execute them on the time that is set meaning keep on schedule when writing so visitors stay on top of content added daily. Persuade readers by informing them about your subject and whatever it may be remain in control of the subject.
Start Income Streams
A blog is not worth much if it isn’t creating some kind of revenue. After building traffic in the industry that you been working on for a couple of months for the blog start adding a stream on income to the website. Utilize CPA or cost per action ads on the blog and begin generating a small income. The amount of money that can be made from your blog is determined by how much visitors you get in a month’s time. For instance, say that a blog is attracting 4000 readers a month and you the owner places relevant ads from a CPA network that pays 20 dollars per action taken on the product. If they manage to get a 2% return that is 1600 dollars for that month. This can be consistent if the blog is optimized for helping readers make a decision on the product.
What are CPA Ads? CPA ads are basically companies that pay webmasters a certain amount of money for directing targeted visitors to there offers. There are hundreds of CPA networks available over the entire net and all the individual needs to do is sign up for free. Build a relationship with the companies and keep at least a handful on deck to refer when there are other niche blogs that has been built. There’s not a number placed on how many CPA networks you can use so diversify the partners and stay in contact with each one even though it may be many in the contact list. Don’t overdue it or place so many on your plate that you can not handle them all at once.
Banner Ads or Google Adsense
First off, both of these methods can bring you in some nice income as you build traffic in your market. Getting readers does not have to be a hassle if you do it in a clear manner. People hate spam very much and that could hinder the business from growing if someone use unethical traffic tactics. With that said, huge traffic stats attracts advertisers which means nice profits can be made per advertiser. I suggest at least 4 different ads on your side bar. Place adsense code on the side bar or within your content to generate relevant text ads. Networks like Google adsense exist such as Yahoo publishing network which operates similarly to adsense.
Overall, I think starting a blog for free or paid is the way to begin your entrepreneur lifestyle. Don’t fret about competitive industry news on niche marketing because if you have a better product that the competition and a top targeted group then success is in your grasp.
