If you really want to succeed in Internet marketing and increase your online profits through blogging, then you need to follow these tips that will help you to make your blogging a success.
Step 1 – Find a Topic of Interest
Think of a topic or niche you are interested in. It will be very easy for you to write regularly and authoritatively and be a go-to industry expert.
Step 2 – Setup Your Blog
There are many blogging platforms to choose from. Though it is always best to blog with a domain and a paid host. If you are new to blogging, I would advice you to start with a free blog at first like Blogger because there are so many things you have to learn.
You need to include the keywords in Step 1 in the content of your blog, but try not to overuse them as it sends out bad impressions to the search engines.
Step 3 – Let Google Work for You
Signing up for Google Adsense is way too easy. You just need to insert the adsense code in the margin of your blog and each time a visitor clicks these ads, you get paid. Earn at least $100 and Google sends you a check. To track where your visitors are coming from with regards to direct hits or from search engine results, use Google Analytics. Also add your URL to Google’s index.
If you want to track where your visitors are coming from with regards to direct hits or from search engine results then I would suggest you use Google Analytics, and again you can get all the help you need setting that up from within the program.
Also add your URL to Google’s index.
Step 4 – Find Something to Sell
If you don’t want to sell anything and you are happy with the income Google Adsense is bringing in then you can skip this step. If you want to maximize your income and truly learn how to make money with blogs, you will want to find an affiliate program to join. A couple of affiliate programs I would suggest are ClickBank and Commission Junction. You can sell anything from office furniture, pet supplies, movies and clothing to PC games, Dieting tips and Audio software.
The program you joined will provide you with a code that you will need to insert into your blog, but be sure you do this correctly, or you WILL NOT earn money from your visitors. If you do not know how to edit HTML, W3Schools HTML tutorial is a great place to start.
Step 5 – Social Bookmarking
There is no better advertising than word of mouth, but the next best thing is social bookmarking. You will want to make things easier for people to do this. Social bookmarking sites I use and recommend are OnlyWire and SocialMarker and they are used for people to share their bookmarks or websites that they have liked with other people in their online community.
I would not suggest you add your own links to these services, but provide visitors to your website the ability to do so.
Step 6 – Write an Article
I would suggest you to write an article or a review if your blog is about a specific product. Most article directories require articles of 500 words and over,so I would use this as a rule when writing to ensure your article will be published.
Submit your article to any of the 100’s which are out there. I personally use a few of the Top Article directories such as EzineArticles, Article Dashboard, Amazines.com, isnare and SearchWarp. I also use a nifty piece of software called Article Submitter which will submit your articles to over 600 article directories, which saves you lots of time and leaves you to focus on writing your blogs.
Blogging offers online marketers the best of opportunities to help feed information to those who need it. Growing popularity on the web is not an overnight experience, but through time, dedication, and persistence you will be rewarded with all the royalties of blogging.
