Want to make money blogging? While there are many ways you can do this, the method in this article is fast, easy and profitable for new bloggers. You can make (almost) instant cash with it.
Firstly, please realize that a blog is NOT an online journal. A blog is instant publishing. When you hit the Send button in your email program others can read your email message, and similarly when you hit Publish in a blogging application the whole world can read your blogging message, or “post” as individual blog pages are called.
1. Choose a Product to Sell
Start by choosing a product to sell.
To make money blogging, train yourself to think in terms of each of your blogs having just ONE purpose. So if you wanted to sell a weight loss program for example, you’d create a blog, just to sell that program. If you wanted to sell another weight loss program, you’d create another blog.
If you try to sell too many products on a single blog, you’ll confuse your visitors and the search engines, and won’t make as many sales as you could be making.
So your first step is to choose a product to sell. Let’s stick with our weight loss program example. You’ve signed up as an affiliate for Weight Loss Product X, which happens to be an ebook.
2. Write a Review
Your next step is to write a review of Weight Loss Product X. This review is in article form, and is around 500 words in length. Ideally, you’ll be familiar with the product you’re selling; it just makes selling it easier.
3. Find Keywords
With your review written, it’s time to find some keywords which could be profitable. Go to your favorite keyword tool (if you don’t have a favorite, do a Google search for keyword tools) and do a search for “weight loss” keywords. Choose a keyword, and then find competing pages by surrounding your keyword with quotes, and doing a Google search.
For example, I just did a Google search for “online weight loss program for teens”, which has just five competing pages. The fewer competing pages the better, but in practice, in a competitive topic like weight loss, if you can find a keyword phrase with under 10,000 competing pages, you have a winner.
4. Write Posts Pointing to Your Review
Create your blog next. Use your keywords in the title. In our “online weight loss program for teens” example, that’s what you’d call the blog, assuming that the product you’re promoting fits the keyword.
With your blog created, post your product review to the blog. Then, create some additional posts about “online weight loss program for teens”; each post points back to your review.
5. All Done
OK — you’re done. All you need to do now is get traffic. There are many ways to do this; I like article marketing. You may prefer interacting on forums, or buying advertising.
So there you have it: a super-fast way to make money blogging. It’s superlatively easy for freelance writers because you already have the writing skills you need. You just need to get familiar with blogging.
