Every day, thousands of people search for information on starting a free online business. They are looking at online business systems, searching for free online business opportunities, and basically looking for legitimate home business ideas so that they can work from home.
Well, that is how I make a living, I work online. That’s what I do, and I love it! I love being able to work anytime, anywhere! I just pack up my laptop, and work from anywhere!
Anyway- I had opportunity to meet with a lady that was searching for that information, and who happens to live in my town. She found me on Facebook, so we talked on there and then decided to meet for lunch and discuss what it takes to start an online business.
I’ll share the same details with you here that I shared with her over lunch, which were simple steps for starting a free online business. I can’t share the fabulous chicken salad, or the great conversation we had, but hopefully this will provide useful information for you, if you are searching for internet business ideas yourself… In all honesty, to make money blogging is one of the easiest things you can do to produce an income online. Starting and running your own blog is a great way to make long-term, passive income. A lot of people don’t realize that virtually anyone can make money blogging. I personally make a living and bring in some decent money online blogging. Today I’ll briefly be talking about some tips you could use to make money blogging.
How Can I Get Started?
In my opinion the easiest way to make money blogging is to create a website with a turnkey blog on a subject that you are somewhat familiar with already. Something you have a passion for. For example, are you into Fitness & Eating Healthy? Start a Fitness Blog. Are you into Cooking? Start a Recipe Blog. Are you a new mommy? Start a Blog about Mommy & Baby Tips. You get the picture, right? Once you get it going, you can make money blogging in your sleep rather than going to a job and getting paid by the hour. Now it’s not a get rich quick method. It’s going to take some time and effort, but it’s well worth the payoff. The more people you drive to your blog, the more money you can make. Having an authority, premium blogging platform that’s already recognized, such as WordPress, will get your blog posts ranked higher on search engines such as Google and Bing.
If you are starting from scratch and want to make money blogging from a brand new blog I suggest you don’t fight with technology. What I mean by that is if you’re not really a techy person, don’t struggle trying to figure out how to create a blog and getting your coding all right and perfect. Purchase an already made blog to help you get started. Doing this is way easier than spending 7-8 hours on something and still not getting the hang of it.
Where Can I Get Ideas?
Getting ideas for different blog topics isn’t as hard as everyone thinks. Honestly if you know your market, you’ll have no problem coming up with ideas for blog posts. Be immersed in your market and understand your audience, know what they want to read and do research about. Connect with your audience, build a relationship and be real. This is really going to help you make money blogging because once you have a good amount of followers, you become an authority figure in your industry and people are more likely to trust you and whatever you’re promoting.
After Blogging, Then What?
A lot of people create a blog and sit there and wait. They hope they get leads, shares, comments and things like that, but they’re not doing anything to get any of that. Understand that when you create a blog, your work isn’t done.
Now that you have a blog up and running, it’s time to put some ads on it. Google Adsense, Amazon Associates, and Pay Per Call are easy to deal with for new comers to internet marketing and web design. All you have to do with each of those services is sign up, and paste the ad code into your blog posts. With a little effort, you can get some ads in your posts that are directly relevant to the topic of the post, which makes those ads more likely to get clicked on.
It comes down to how you position yourself, and where you share your blogs, etc. When you create a blog post, you want to drive as much attention to it as possible. It is more than possible to make money blogging; it just comes down to you putting in work. Share your posts on Facebook, Tweet about them, invite Facebook friends to visit your blog, etc. It may seem very hard, but realistically it isn’t.
