What You Need To Know About Building A Blog Online

Written by

With a blog, you can build up your credibility and earn money at the same right time - all while creating a brand in your niche and becoming recognizable. There are many people who have successful blogs and are living the life of their dreams - all while just making 1 simple blog post per day.

It's something that you should consider doing if you want to live your dream lifestyle, and have a lot of time to spend with your family and friends. And the beautiful thing about it is that, you don't have to learn how to create a website! Most blogging services like Blogger and WordPress have beautiful templates that you can use to customize and turn into a professional website within 10 minutes of signing up.

Perhaps the most important thing that you will have to consider is getting traffic to your blog. This is a tricky subject, because a lot of people do a TON of things to get traffic to their blog, and they fail miserably. Why is that? Well simply because most people have the mindset that "if you build it, they will come".

This is completely wrong. You can have the most beautiful blog in the world, but if it doesn't get any traffic for you, how will you make money? How will you pay the bills? You will want to do everything that you can to gain a lot of traffic to your blog in the most efficient way as possible.

Sure, you can advertise. But if you advertise your blog, you need monetizing options that will make your campaigns profitable. I suggest putting Google AdSense on your blog, adding high commission affiliate products, or even selling your own product on your blog. You can create simple information products, price them high, and place it in a good place on your blog so that it can get a lot of publicity.

Another way to "advertise" (well free advertise really), is to offer an opt-in email sign up form on your blog. This way, you can market over and over again to the people who didn't buy anything from you, or just simply market to these people via email to drive them back to your blog.

And believe it or not, you will actually increase your website traffic at the same time! The more leads you get, the more people who will visit your blog on a daily basis, and the more people you will have clicking on the items on your blog. Imagine if you had 50,000 people on your opt-in email list. You're traffic would explode on a daily basis, and you will more than likely have the targeted traffic you need to get a recurring stream of traffic coming in everyday.

Having a blog can be a great way to launch your own business, add another dimension to your existing website, and to earn the money online that you are looking for. It's real easy to get set up with a blog, and once you start making daily posts to it, you will see your traffic and activity increase slowly but surely. So consider having a blog online today.
Good luck with your blogging and blog marketing efforts.
