Blogging is a fun way to spend ones free time on the net. Many people spend their free time on the blogs getting in touch with friends from all over the world. But did you ever know that this fun activity can be used to make money? Imagine how much more it would be if you made money doing what you love. I have been blogging for 3 years now and proud to say that the blogging income pays off my bills and help me to expand other online businesses. Truly, the money earned from blogging continuously grows as your blog gets older with more quality contents and consistent updates.
As long as you have a passion for and are dedicated to writing, earning money through blogging is very simple. For starters you must have a functioning blog through which you sell your business merchandise. The best part of blogging is you don’t have to have any merchandise or products to sell on your blog. You can simply rant about anything while making money from it. Once you have your blog, your next focus should be on getting as many people to read it as possible. This should not be hard especially for those with the right language skills and creativity. Most people are attracted to creatively written pieces of work and thus if you focus on this then you are likely to draw many customers. Plus, search engines like new contents and will deliver good number of visitors to your blog daily.
Personally, I would suggest you to stick with one niche. If you love to write about gardening, then do not write unrelated articles like Gambling, Health, etc on your blog. Instead, only write about relevant topics to your niche like Exterior design, Home improvement, Interior design, etc. Writing articles in one niche will narrow down the opportunity from wide categories where you will only able to make money from Home Improvement niche businesses now. But, with consistent updates regarding Home Improvement, you will increase your blog authority and value in Home Improvement niche. Now, you can demand much higher advertisement rate from relevant advertisers promising that you have a relevant crowd in this industry.
The common question most bloggers have is “how to increase blog traffic or visitors?”. First you could read and comment on other peoples blogs that is relevant to your niche. This helps to let other bloggers know about you and comment on your blog too. You could also post links to your blogs on various discussion relevant forums. People on these forums can then be linked to your blog too. You can also help Yahoo Answer community in your niche to draw relevant traffic. With consistent blog content updates with regular blog post and above mentioned activity, you will have no trouble to increase number of visitors to your new blog in shortest period of time.
With the right number of people reading your blog you are now ready to take the next step, that of making money. At this stage all one needs to do is register with Adsense for free. Once your Adsense account is approved you can now select what advertisements can be placed on your blog. Money earned through your blog will be sent to your Adsense account. This may be the first phase of blogging revenue. A blog that have gained trust, fans, increasing visitors will tend to attract more private advertising revenues that will put your income graph at exponential rate. Making money on the blog is an easy way to get rich on the net especially for young entrepreneurs. However, give yourself time of at least 1 year in order to see the real income from your blogging.
