Buying a new baby stroller is a simple affair right? You just go down to the local stroller mart and grab the first and cheapest thing that suits your fancy. Isn’t that the right way to pickup a new stroller? After all, it’s just a stroller, right?
If you have a niche blog that provides useful information you can attract targeted traffic from the search engines. With this traffic you find people that are searching for the solution to a problem and, since they are actively looking for information on your topic, they will be more likely to click through to an advertisers site. Let the advertiser try to further monetize the traffic by selling a product or service. You simply act as a middle man between the search engine and advertiser and provide the client with traffic.
You will notice that blogging is taking off like a wild fire. New New business ideas keep popping up online and it doesn’t look like it is going to stop anytime soon. blogs make it easy for people that have no clue about web development to create sites fast. This means that they are going to have good looking sites, but they are going to immediately need something that many will not be able to provide. They are going to want content. Everybody knows that having good content on a site is job one these days. Search engines are punishing sites that don’t have good quality content.
On the other hand, I say this with a sheepish smile, since Blogs are free, I set up another blog in Google for my family and friends where I simply post pictures of the family and news about them. This I have no need to be picked up by web search engines, and just pass out the URL to my kids and close friends. Which is another way to use blogs.
Search for yourself online. Simply go to Google and search for your company, you may be extremely surprised in what you find! I know we were, since the first page of results contained nine links to bad reviews or our competition, while only one was to our website. So if people searched for us online we were not making a good first impression. Google also has “alerts” which can be emailed directly to you as soon as a new result pops up in your name, which was also a big part of what we did. Again, direct someone to manage this day to day and cc everyone when something important comes up. The alerts are very simple to setup and change.
It will always require some effort to actually make money. This is true for every successful Internet Marketer out there, and almost any other really rich person. They had to work to get to that point and become successful. They also had the right online blogs tools and knew how to use them. You can’t be successful in anything without the right tools, and that especially goes for internet marketing. Although there’s a lot of bogus internet marketing “systems” out there, a few of those systems actually work and give you the right tools you need to be successful. One of these systems is discussed in my blog, which I’ll include a link to in the resource box. Feel free to check it out after reading this article.
One. How do blogs make money? Bloggers make money by recommending or reviewing products. If a blogger tells you about a product (which has a referral payment) and you use that link to purchase the item, the blogger gets paid.
You must be consistent! A blog that makes money isn’t something that you can just throw up and then ignore for a week or a month. You must be consistent and update a lot so that people keep coming back and your traffic stays where it needs to be.
