Freely Available Marketing Methods – Blogging

You’ll be building credibility even before anyone visits your site, so that makes it easier to generate profits if people already perceive you as an expert. Also make sure that you ping your blog, which is a way of letting blog portals know that you’ve updated it with new posts. Making use of paid methods of advertising such as banner advertising, purchasing links from high-ranking sites, or Pay-Per-Click (PPC) such as Google AdWords also offer possibilities. PPC is complex and therefore more difficult to master, but a well setup campaign can be very effective. Make sure you consult a good PPC resource before you start, otherwise it can become very expensive. Brad Callen’s “AdWords Made Easy” is available for free on the Internet. Excellent resources you can purchase are “AdWords Miracle” and “The Definitive Guide to Google AdWords”. Whichever method you choose, always consider if the profits are worth the expense, otherwise you’re throwing money down the drain.

This puts you in the drivers seat for a couple of reasons. First you have control over exactly what is said. Secondly, if you do a good job you may have the opportunity to make regular blog posts. That will build an audience on the blogs for your writing and turn into more and higher quality traffic for your website. The key to being a great guest blogger is to write short (3 to 6 or so paragraph) posts that are interesting, informative, humorous and relevant to the topic of the blog (and your website). Of course they should have a link to your website. Don’t over do the linking. A few minutes to compose a couple of well thought out paragraphs could do wonders for your web traffic. Keep looking for guest blogging opportunities and never use the same post for more than one blog. One post could bring a lifetime of traffic. This may well be your most effective way to developing quality web traffic and enhancing your the SEO for your website(s).

In addition to these benefits, if your main purpose of blogging is to make money, then niche blogs will be the best option for you. It is because niche blogs have a well-targeted market which can help you in earning loyal readership, leading to increased traffic. As niche-based blogs use a specific set of keywords and geo-locations, it helps you get the desired ROI. So, now that you know about tons of benefits of niche blogging, here are the top 3 most popular niches that you can take up to star your blogging venture. Food Food blogs are one of the most popular blog niches. With so many foodies out there, this niche can attract a lot of readers for you. There are many people who are interested in knowing healthy recipes, ingredients, healthy eating habits, and other food-based stories. You can easily target such a group of people with your blogs.

This Tip is to get you to target your blog (or start your blog) with one specific interest in mind. We call this interest a “niche” on the internet. All successful blogs and websites target a specific niche – like a doctor who specializes in one specific area. The more targeted your niche, the higher search ranking you will have in all the search engines. This is the best way to get organic traffic – organic means you don’t have to pay for traffic to your website with the search engines. 2: If your blog does not have one particular interest or if you still haven’t thought of any particular passion or interest then that tells me you may not be cut out for blogging for money. Successful bloggers who are blogging for money, spend all their time and resources focused on their particular interest (also known as a niche). 1 until you figure out what you want to do or where your talents are. 1 is the most important Tip that all the other Tips rely on.

Expand on the answer a little bit, and link to another website, so they can find more information by clicking the link. Always invite people to comment on what you write on your blog. You want comments. You need interaction. Visit other people’s blogs similar to yours, and invite them to visit you. Don’t place links in the comment, put the link in the space provided. Be sure your link is correct (copy and paste it if you have to). Don’t accept ALL comments on your blog. If they don’t pertain to what you wrote, or they’re selling something you don’t support, delete them. As you add more blog posts, concentrate on finding the common topic of your blog. What is it you write about most. That’s your passion. Keep writing. Either finish them, or delete them once a month. Otherwise, they’re just taking up space in the background. Keep visiting other people’s blogs and sending them back to your blog. Keep sharing your blog with others on social media, with friends. Promote other blogs you find interesting. Invite other bloggers to share your content on their blog. Guest posting and interactive sharing brings more readers. Find products and books you can review that are relevant to your topic. Write about them, review them, and link to them. Remind your readers, “Visit my links and read my blog posts.” Whenever you’re writing on forums, or other spaces.

If you find yourself tired of writing at the end of the week, then consider writing a post only every few days. The most important thing isn’t so much how often you write, but that you keep to a regular schedule. If all you can manage is one post a week, but your readers know it will be available Wednesday night, then they’ll come look for it then. 2) Spread the (link) love! A common approach with new bloggers is to try to keep readers on their own blog by not linking out to other blogs. The thinking is that if I link out, people will actually click on the link and leave my blog. That’s true, some of your readers will follow your links. But if they find what you linked to useful, they’ll be back to read your next post. And linking out to other blogs is a great way to get the attention of the owner of the other blogs. They will probably come to see what you wrote about them, and they may stick around and become readers themselves. Or they may return the favor and link to you sometime.
