Start Making Money With Blogging Today


Over the last few years, blogs have grown in popularity and it would seem that now everyone and their dog has a blog. If you check out some opportunities to make money online, you will see that there are many who claim that it is possible to make decent money by blogging. But is this really true?

In reality, it is possible for anyone, with little experience in the blog world to start earning money from blogging. But it may not always be as straightforward as many would think it is. If you want to make money from blogging, you will first need to be patient and learn how to do it properly. There are two main ways to make money from blogs. You can either have your own blog, or write for someone else’s. The second option is far more simple and can allow you to make money more quickly, so we will look into it first.

  • Ghostwriting

Here, you will be creating blog posts for someone that owns a blog and will be paid either as a share of the revenue that your blog posts bring in, or more commonly, a fixed price ranging from $3 to $50 for each post that you make. The blog that you write for could be an informative one, or it could be a businesses blog that serves mainly to promote the products and services of a certain company. Your posts will usually be published under the name of the blog owner or a pseudonym. If you want to get started with blogging quickly, then this is one of the fastest and easiest ways to make money from it. You can make some pretty decent coin if you are hired by numerous clients to update their blogs on a regular basis.

  • Guest blogging

This is similar to ghostwriting, in the sense that you will be writing posts for a blog that isn’t your own. However, there are a few differences. As a guest blogger, the posts that you make will usually be credited to your name, along with links to your own blog, website or social networking profiles. This allows you to gain some notoriety in the online world as people can more easily find the content that you have written online, even if it wasn’t published on a site that you own. If you create good content, it is also very possible that you will get regular assignments.

  • Other tasks that don’t involve writing

You can also make some money without having to create any written content. For example, someone could pay you to design logos and graphics for their blog. Or you could act as an administrator for one, uploading already made content at specified times, moderating and responding to comments left by visitors, keeping track of usage statistics, etc. You might also have the opportunity to take written content and to transform it into another type of media, like videos that will give a better explanation of what is being discussed.

Building Multiple Streams of Income

Building Multiple Streams of Income


If you want to make more money online, there are a few ways that you can make this happen. While the specific details will vary according to what kind of online business you are in at the moment, there is some good advice that you can use no matter what you are doing at the moment and what you would like to do in the future.

One of the important things is to: Work on building multiple streams of income, but do it well

We all hear that earning money online successfully involves having multiple streams of income. This is a common topic that comes back in nearly every “Make Money Online” ebook being sold. And this is not just another marketing gimmick to get authors to sell more products. The reason why so many give this advice is because it works, period.

This is even true in the “offline” world. If you ask a person who is very successful financially and has a net worth of several million about how they make their money, they will probably tell you that they run several businesses at the same time. They may own a restaurant franchise, an apartment building, a car wash, a gas station, etc. All of these businesses bring them money.

This gives them the opportunity to not only make more money, but to ensure that they would keep making money should conditions change and one of their businesses wouldn’t be as profitable anymore.

The same is true online. It is better to have 4 websites in different niches making $25 a day than just one website making $100 a day. However, some people don’t approach this concept the right way. They see “multiple streams of income” and believe that it means “do everything at once”. Obviously, this is not a winning strategy, because it would probably degenerate into “do everything at once but do nothing well enough”.

A better strategy for success would be building each site or business one at a time. Focus your efforts on only one or two things at the same time, maximum. Then, when this business starts rolling well and brings you revenue like you want it, you can then start thinking about whether you’re ready to build something else that would work too.

After some time, you would be able to get multiple streams of income coming in from different websites, businesses, products, etc. that you own. This is one of the principal elements of successful online money making.

There are other tips that you can apply in the online business world that will help you earn the revenue that you’ve always wanted from your activities. Tomorrow we will consider some other pieces of advice that you can use to do just that.

Building a Successful Blog: Part 1

Building a Successful Blog: Part 1


There are many out there who have seen successful blogs that receive tens of thousands of hits each day and have a loyal following of readers from all around the world. It is definitely possible to start a blog and have it become popular, but there are a few considerations that webmasters would need to keep in mind in order to put all the chances of succeeding on their side.

When getting started, you should do certain things which will help you get off on the right foot. Here are some of the most important elements to think about:

  • Get Your Own Domain and Hosting

You will find many services, such as Blogger, WordPress.com and other blog hosts which let you host a blog for free, as a subdomain of their main domain name. If you hope your blog to be successful and earn you some money, then you should avoid any free hosting service. First, it will make promoting your blog more complicated, as you wouldn’t be hosting it on your own domain name. Plus, there is the fact that free blogging platform often provide a limited set of tools and can have several other restrictions that will make customizing your blog and monetizing it more difficult. While you may find a few highly popular blogs that are hosted on a free service, this is the exception and not the norm. Also, in many cases these blogs have become popular simply by accident as their content went viral, rather than through the actions of the owner.

Basic web hosting is cheap and can cost less than $5 per month. A domain name can also be purchased for less than $10 and is included in many hosting packages. Once you have your hosting, you can then install a blogging platform, such as WordPress, which is the most popular in the world among bloggers.

  • Think About the Content You Will Provide to Readers

While you may have an objective of making money from your blog, you must remember that your primary mission should be to provide content that your audience will love and find useful. There are so many spammy blogs that are contain nothing more than advertisements for products that the webmaster owns or is an affiliate of, or blogs that contain copied or rewritten content that offers nothing new to the reader, where the webmaster simply hopes that visitors will click on some of the ads.

Before you choose a niche for your blog, ask yourself whether it’s something that you truly have an interest in and will really be able to create useful content for on a regular basis. Also, ask yourself whether it’s something that will be relatively unique, or if there would already be thousands of other blogs just like yours online. The more likely your blog is to appeal to its intended audience, the more natural traffic you will get, which will make generating revenue from your blog a lost faster and demand much less active effort on your part.

Improving Your Customer Service With Self Serve Features

Improving Your Customer Service With Self Serve Features


If you have a website that sells something online, whether it’s a product or service, then making money by selling your items is the main objective of your site. However, if you want to remain competitive in your niche and see long term growth, then providing good support for your customers and potential customers is important for your online business, just like it would be in any other type of business.

Unfortunately, this is something that is often overlooked by many online business operators, especially those that provide services such as web hosting resellers. Here are some great tips which will help you provide a very good customer service experience for your website visitors:

  • Provide good information on your website

The issue with contacts to a website’s service staff is that many of these contacts could have been avoided if the necessary information was included on the site and featured in a prominent way. Therefore, you should provide clear information about how your products work, as well as help files about how to use them if this would be relevant to your products. Creating video tutorials on how to accomplish certain things with your products would also be a great idea. On your contact page, you should include a link to the relevant help section of your website, which will encourage your customers and potential buyers alike to first check out the information to see if the answer to their question can actually be found there before they contact you.

  • Offer good self service features

This is a move that has been well understood by many large businesses operating in plenty of different industries everywhere. It’s less costly in terms of money and resources to let your customers do certain transactions and see some information by themselves rather than having them contact you. If you run an e-commerce site that ships products, for example, you could include a section on your site that keeps track of your customers previous orders. You can then update it with shipping and tracking information, which would cut down on the “when will my order get there” type of inquiries. This also applies to service based sites as well. Try to implement features that would let your customers make their own changes to their account, such as changing their service plans, adding a new subscription under their main account, changing their billing information, canceling or suspending a service they have with you, etc. By doing all of this, you will reduce contacts to your customer service, sometimes even in a significant way.

  • Send a follow up/confirmation email on every new order

With the email, provide the relevant information, such as order number, tracking number for any shipments, as well as a link to the help section or the account management section of your website. Doing so will encourage your customers to use them to see if they can find the answer to any question they have there before they get into contact with you.

Making Money with A Web Store

Making Money with A Web Store


Would you like to own an e-commerce site? Many aspiring online entrepreneurs have had this idea. And in the world of online business, ideas are what matter. Remember that websites which are very powerful and have become a staple of the online business world today have all started with this: an idea.

 

Will you be able to be as successful as some of the big names in e-commerce right now? Maybe… but you have to be realistic and the odds of this actually happening are quite remote indeed. However, with the right ideas, business plan and execution, you will definitely be able to make some money with an e-commerce site. With the growth in online shopping, there are a lot of opportunities out there for you to make money. Here are the basic elements that you would need to think of when you start an online business of this sort:

 

  • Products to sell. Obviously this is the most important thing to consider when you are starting an online business. You will need to think about what you will be selling to make money from your site. This is the part of building an e-commerce site that you will want to give the most thought to.
  • A website. Since you will be selling products online, you obviously need to have a website to sell them. While some will tell you that building an e-commerce site is easy, creating one, depending on how complex you want it to be, can be a challenge. You can build a website from an “off the shelf” e-commerce platform, many of which are available for free. This will give you a “standard” or basic e-commerce site. But if you want to customize it more, you will need to either learn about things such as coding and graphic design, or hire someone else to do it for you. Your website will be the first thing that your customers see, so you obviously need to make it look good in order to make your online business appear trustworthy in your site visitors eyes.
  • Site visitors. Also know as traffic. Obviously, this is an important part of running an online business and it is also the most important one. Without any visitors to your website, there are no potential customers and therefore you will be making no money. There are various strategies that you can employ to bring some visitors to your new e-commerce website. But one thing that you need to realize is that at the beginning, growth may be quite slow. You will need to patiently build up some traffic by using various means of online promotion. There are some ways that you can use which will bring you free website visitors. However, this will require some work on your part. Also, you will need to study some of the online advertising and marketing methods if you would like to know all about the latest methods that you can use to bring some people as visitors to your site.

Using Fiverr to Make Money: Part 2


Now one thing that many sellers of services on Fiverr want to know is: how do I get my gigs to become more popular and thus make more money from them? Obviously, this is a quite a valid question as the goal of everyone that provides services on Fiverr is to make as much money as possible. So how do you increase your earnings? Here are some very efficient ways that you can employ to make the most out of Fiverr:

 

  • Give People What They Want

 

If your gigs are something that a lot of buyers on Fiverr want, then you will obviously get a better chance at making money from them. When you are on the Fiverr main page, you will see a section in the bottom right that consists of gig requests. If you can do some of the gigs that many people need done, then you should definitely offer them up for sale.

 

  • Create a Catchy Headline

 

Unless you are offering a gig that is extremely unique, chances are that there will be many other sellers on Fiverr who will be offering the same thing than you. In this case, you will really need to do your best in order to make a good first impression and stand out from the crowd. Your headline, which is the title of your gig, should be interesting, unique and catch the eye of the viewer. Basically, it should stand out from all the other headlines and create interest in the mind of the viewer.

 

  • Offer Samples of Your Work if Possible

 

If you do a gig where you can easily show a sample or two of work that you have done previously, then you should definitely include a link to it in your offer. For example if you design small web pages, you could include a link to some websites that you have built. This will make you appear a lot more trustworthy in the eyes of buyers, as they will have proof that you are capable of doing what you say you will do.

 

  • Build a Good Reputation

 

Fiverr uses a feedback system where people can leave either positive or negative feedback, accompanied by a comment. If you want more people to buy gigs from you, then you will need to srive to build a good reputation on the site. This is very simple: provide good quality work on time and you will get positive feedback. Buyers are more likely to buy gigs from those who have a lot of positive feedback, so doing great work will pay off in the long run.

 

  • Learn From Others

 

Look at some of the top sellers on Fiverr, especially those that are offering the same kind of gig than you. How do they word their headline? What do they put in their description? These are all things that you would need to consider, as you would be learning from those that are the most successful on Fiverr.

Work At Home Offers – Know Which Ones ARE NOT Legit – Part 1

Work At Home Offers – Know Which Ones ARE NOT Legit – Part 1


Even though the effects of the recession are slowly starting to taper off and employment is picking up again, a great deal of people are still interested in being their own boss and making money for themselves. This is a great thing and comes with a lot of advantages for those who take advantage of this opportunity. There are also a great many opportunities to take advantage of online when it comes to making money for yourself. However, not all of these can be profitable for you. In fact, some of them are outright scams that are designed to make money only for those who promote these “opportunities”. Here are some of them:

Envelope stuffing.

This is quite an old scam and has been around even during the years before the internet even came into existence. The company claims that you can make money by stuffing envelopes and mailing them. They say that you can make $10 to $30 per envelope that you stuff and mail. Now let’s stop and think logically here: a machine can do the same thing for mere pennies. Even if they can’t afford one, they can hire a worker for minimum wage who can stuff hundreds of envelopes each day. WHY would they pay YOU such a high amount just for folding a piece of paper? Well… you’ve guessed it: they won’t. They make money by having you pay for a “starter kit”. You will soon notice that they want you to promote the same “make money stuffing envelopes” spiel by sending envelopes with information about the “opportunity” to other victims. If someone signs up, you then get paid. This is actually quite close to a pyramid scheme and is illegal in many jurisdictions.

Product assembly.

Another one that has been around since before the internet. Often promoted by the same people who run the envelope stuffing scam. You are told that you will be paid to assemble items, such as toys and other trinkets at home. They offer you what looks like a really good payment for every item that you assemble. Now the problems start when you sign up. You are told that you must first order a “start up kit” which contains the materials to be assembled. This kit can cost well over a hundred dollars, but the materials that it contains are probably worth a few dollars at most. You can assemble and send back as many products as you want, but they will always tell you that they weren’t done correctly and thus they can’t pay you.

Data entry / “online typist” jobs.

Here, you will be told that you can make from $10 to $50 to type in a short 3 line ad on a website. Alarm bells should be going off in your head now. Why would someone pay you that much for what is basically 2 minutes of work? After signing up and paying a fee (of course), you will soon realize that what you will need to do is to enter ads on online pay per click advertising services such as Google Adwords which promote the same website that you just signed up for. You get paid only when someone clicks on the ads you typed and signs up for their site. The issue is, YOU will have to pay for each click that you receive. And not everyone who clicks on your ads will sign up. If you have no experience in pay per click marketing, you will probably end up just losing your money.

Making Good Use Of PLR – Part 1

Making Good Use Of PLR – Part 1


If you were looking for content to add to your website or for some ebooks that you can resell, then you may have come across someone selling PLR content. You may have been surprised that it is quite cheap or even free. In fact packs of PLR such as articles, ebooks, website templates, graphics, etc. are often given as a free gift when you buy some products in the internet marketing niche or you join a membership site about making money online. Can using PLR really earn you money, or is it just something that is good as “filler” content for your website?

As you may already know, PLR products give you “Private Label Rights”, meaning that depending on the license included with the content, you can do pretty much anything you want with it, including republish it, modify it, bundle it in another product, etc. This creates a wealth of opportunities in which PLR products can be used, some of which could indeed be very profitable for you.

Let’s take a look at PLR articles. Obviously, we all know that in order for a web page to be both attractive to readers and search engines, it needs to have regularly updated and unique content. PLR articles can help you with that. However, there are certain things that you should know about using them. If all you need is content for your site and you don’t care too much about SEO (i.e. you don’t expect to get most of your traffic from organic search results), then you can simply use the articles as they are on your site.

However, if you want to increase your ranking in the search engines, the content that you supply on your site needs to be actually unique. You will therefore need to rewrite it. However, we all know that rewriting content is far more simple than actually writing an article from scratch. You don’t really need to think up of original ideas, just say the same thing than the PLR article is saying but in different words. For example, if the original text is: “I saw a huge dog running on the street”, you could spin it to “I looked at the street and saw a big dog barreling through”. You get the idea. You can, of course hire a freelancer to do it for you. In that case you will save money, as rewriting is usually quite cheaper than writing original content. You can spin the PLR articles as many times as you desire to suit your needs.

Remember that you actually don’t have to use the entire article on your site. For example, if the PLR articles are 600 words each and you only need a 300 word blog post, you can use only parts of the article on your site. You can also split the article into two different posts as well.

WHY Do People Fail In Online Business?

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

WHY Do People Fail In Online Business?


They say most people who decide to build an online business end up failing. While there is no way to get the exact numbers, some estimate that over 75% of people who start an online business end up failing. Others put the numbers as high as 90%. If you are thinking of starting or expanding an online business, these numbers are not quite encouraging. They just might push you to think that there is no way to have success in the online world. Obviously, this is not true. Just like in any other business, there are some people who will do better than others.

Now the main question remains, WHY did these people actually fail. And did they really “fail” or simply gave up? Don’t believe for a second the “gurus” out there who tell you that people fail in IM because they didn’t know the “top secret success formula” that they are selling. This is simply a marketing tactic and nothing more. In the online world, there is no such thing as “lack of information”. In fact, there is plenty of information available out there, for free, to anyone that wants it. People can find free ebooks, guides, blog posts, videos, discussion forums, etc. where they can find all about online business methods, techniques and strategies. You just have to find the information and apply it.

But you have to ask yourself a question: are you an entrepreneur, or just someone looking for a quick buck. There are some differences between the two. The true entrepreneur will always look for ways to make their business achieve its goals and grow. He is willing to adapt to change and learn new ideas to make money. Someone thinking that internet marketing is about “making money fast from home” simply wants that: to make some money easily. The problem is, once they have made the money they needed this month to pay their bills or go shopping, they are happy. They stop. They don’t think of ways they can reinvest their profits to make even more money. What’s more, they don’t structure their business properly.

In the online world, diversifying your activities and having multiple backup plans available will make or break you. Bad things happen. Affiliate programs fold without paying members. Servers can crash. Products could lose their popularity, etc, etc. Someone who is actually building their online business understands that and will have multiple tools, strategies and income streams at their disposal so that they can continue operating no matter what happens. And if a project they are working on doesn’t give them the results they want, they ask themselves why. Then they apply the necessary corrections and try again, until they found something that actually works and let them achieve their goals with regards to the income they want to generate.

Becoming An Online Freelance Writer: What Does It Take

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Becoming An Online Freelance Writer: What Does It Take


For those of you who have thought about being an online freelance writer, here is some information that will help you out on your new journey to making money by writing content on the internet. Being a freelance writer in the online world is not as difficult as it may seem in the first place. In most cases, you won’t need to have much literary talent. After all, most online writing jobs involve writing information and advertising, rather than works of fiction. Therefore, you won’t need experience in writing epic novels that have won awards for best literary work of the century.

But there are a few things that you will need. One of them is a capacity to learn quickly. When you freelance online, you will be writing about various different topics. Sure, you could be an expert in one or two of them, but it’s going to be quite hard to only get work related to things that you are knowledgeable about. When you write about things that you’re not very familiar with, you are going to need to do some research on the topic quickly. This isn’t like in high school where you get two weeks to turn in your research paper. You will need to be able to find the necessary information that you need online and use it to write the article. For example, you may need to write a review about a certain model or cell phone or car. This would involve finding the specifications and details on the subject, as well as looking up online comments to see what other people are saying about it.

This is why it is always a good idea to keep yourself on top of the news and what goes on in different industries. That way, you would be better prepared and already have some information about your disposal if you are asked to write about, say a new social networking site that has become very popular, or a revolutionary new mobile device that is changing the world of communication.

As a freelance writer, you need to be reliable and be able to meet deadlines. You also need to pay attention to client instructions in order to make sure that your work will reflect what the client wanted. By doing quality work and delivering it on time, you will be very likely to get regular clients which can be quite profitable for you.

Another thing that you must have is the ability to work fast. Especially when you are just starting out, most article writing jobs will only pay you from $5 to $10 per 500 word article. Now if it takes you all day just to produce one article, it will not be a very lucrative activity for you. Learn to optimize your research to be able to get the info that you need quicker and also be able to rapidly write down what you are thinking about.

The Best Reasons To Start An Online Business

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The Best Reasons To Start An Online Business


There are a lot of reasons not to start an online business. The time and money you’ll need to invest put a lot of people off, and prevent them from ever diving in to online business. Before you walk away from online business, remember, for every reason not to do it, there is an equally compelling reason to start an online business of your own. Let’s take a look at some of the best reasons to start an online business.

Expand On Your Hobbies

If you’ve ever thought about making money from one of your hobbies, an online business might be the best way to do it. Even if you just start a blog that talks about a particular hobby you’re interested in, you can still bring in advertising revenue. In fact, if your site becomes popular, you can bring in a great deal of ad revenue. If you’re really passionate about your hobby, starting an online business built around it might be the best way to take that hobby a step further.

Try Out A New Career

It’s no big secret that most people aren’t happy with their job for one reason or another. Starting an online business can turn into a new career if you handle it correctly. The best part is that you don’t have to quit your current job to start an online business. You can get started in your free time, and test the waters to see whether you enjoy it, and whether or not you can make the kind of money you want to make from it. Just remember, the more time you spend on your online business, the better it will do.

Learn New Skills

You can learn a lot while setting up and managing y our online business. You will likely learn something new about web design, and development, marketing, and customer service while running your online business. Even if your business doesn’t pan out the way you want it to, you’ll have those skills for the rest of your life, and they’ll help you to further your career.

Starting an online business can be a great way to make money for yourself. Even if your business doesn’t go as well as you had hoped, it can still provide other benefits that you will carry with you forever. Just about anyone can benefit from starting an online business, and that’s the best reason to start one.

Creating Incentives for Affiliates

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Creating Incentives for Affiliates


Affiliate marketing is something we talk about quite a bit here, but one area we don’t always touch on enough is creating your own products. We have talked about it a bit, but I haven’t touched on one very valuable area of affiliate marketing — creating an incentive for your affiliates to try and sell your product.

Below are four rock solid ways for you to help your affiliates to sell your product and to make it easier on them.

Create Banners For Them
One of the easiest things you can do is create banners and graphics for your affiliates to display. It saves them time and money creating them banners for themselves to sell YOUR product, and it will keep your branding and identity of your product consistent.

Give Away a Prize
At launch, giving away a high valued prize can be a great incentive for people to work hard and sell your product. For example, a lot of affiliates give away a MacBook Pro or Apple iPad to the top selling affiliate after so many weeks or months. Nothing gives more incentive than cool gadgets and cold hard cash.

Make it Easy
Create a great product that people want to use. Don’t take shortcuts on your landing page design and make sure your sales copywriting is rock solid. Having a good product and a good website and layout is essential in getting affiliates in the first place. Every time I sign up for an affiliate program or to sell someone’s product, I go to their product page to see 1) Does the product fit my niche? 2) How well is the website laid out? 3) What is the sales copywriting look like? 4) Is the site easy to use, uncluttered and is it easy to find the “order” page (the most essential page!)? Create a good product and great site and you will be very successful if you take care of your affiliates.

Have a High Payout
Do not be cheap when it comes to payouts, because people love making money. If they are going to go through a ton of effort for your product, they better have a great reason why — money. If your product is $30, you should think of $15 as the minimum and $20 as a number down the road potentially. Why? The more people selling your product the more products you will sell, so you will try and make it up in mass sales.

Make Money Online With Your Talents


One of the biggest questions on everyone’s minds these days is how to make money on the internet. Everyone has their own hobbies, and talents, and some of them can be turned into a source of income on the internet if you know how to do it. Depending on what your hobby of choice is, you might be able to make a fair amount of money on it online.

Photography

If you’re a photographer, you can bring in a good bit of money on the internet. There are two main ways to go about making money from your photography. You can sell stock photos, and prints. There are a few different ways to sell each on the internet, and picking the right ones for you is really going to depend on the type of work you do, and the audience is’t most likely to appeal to. For stock photos, two of the biggest sites you can sell your work on are iStockPhoto, and Getty Images. Getty Images is mainly used by journalists looking to get stock photos for articles, so if you have a lot of work covering people and places, you’ll do well there. If your work is diverse, iStockPhoto may be a better place to sell your stock photos. Their customers are looking for a wide variety of things. As for prints, your best bet is to set up an Etsy store. Etsy has a great community of both sellers, and customers. It’s easy to set up an Etsy store, and have it become profitable.

Writing

If you can write, you can bring in some money on the internet. A lot of different websites are looking for writers, and if you can’t find a site that’s hiring, you can always list your services on a site like oDesk, or Elance. Fiverr can also be a great place to find clients – just offer up one article for $5, and see if anyone takes you up on it. Once you get a client on Fiverr, there’s a good chance that they’ll keep coming to you for work over time.

Other talents can be turned into profits on the internet. Take the time to do some research about your hobby, and see if there’s any way you can do it professionally. If there’s a market for it, you can make money on the internet with your hobby.

3 Ways to Make Money Blogging


Making money while blogging is a great sounding idea, but it is even harder to put into practice. Writing takes time, dedication, and creative thoughts. Then there is the promotion, networking, social networking, blog design, and blog maintenance to keep up with. The other areas take away from the core of writing for a purpose and should be the secondary thing after your content. If you write an article per day, do that first, then promote and maintain second. Great content is still king.

Making money should be the next thing to worry about – after you do the other stuff and after you have some great content. There are plenty of ways to make money from your blog, such as advertising, but today we are going to touch on three very different ways you can make a great profit from your website. Most professional bloggers do at least one of these, allowing them to rake in sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. But don’t worry, most of us aren’t that lucky. Being able to break even on a blog is a great start, then after that focus on paying for your gas every week for your car. Once you have reached that, try to pay for your cellphone bill and gas. Keep moving up until you have scaled to the point you want to be at that you can maintain while staying sane. With that, let’s look at 3 ways to make money blogging.

Affiliate Revenue
Signing up to be an affiliate for products that are close to your niche can be a great way to create some income. You can promote established products and link to them from your blog. You will receive a portion of the sales of those products when someone visits and purchases the product from your affiliate link. This is a great way to get your feet wet before trying to create your own products. A good example is Copyblogger.com where he promotes professional blogging software such as Thesis theme.

Create a Product
Creating your own product related to your niche is a great way to make a lot of money, especially if you have a big audience of 2-3k unique visitors per month. Create an enticing ebook, membership site, or video series and promote them on your blog and through affiliates on other websites.

Write for Someone Else
If you are just getting started, don’t be afraid to write for someone else so that you can start getting some income right away. It will help offset your startup costs and give you some real cash to spend.
