So you’ve taken the first step to make money online and created a blog to build up your online presence. I congratulate you on taking that first step, but creating your blog is the easy part. Even if you have an excellent product to sell or promote, just having a blog isn’t going to make you any money. You need to let the world know about your blog if you want to bring in any profits.
Blog traffic is what makes blogs successful. No matter what your promoting or selling if you get enough traffic to your blog you will make money because somebody is always willing to buy something even if they don’t necessarily need it. And since you should only be selling/promoting things that are useful to people you should have no problem getting people to purchase products from you.
Because search engines are currently in love with blogs. If you choose correct keywords for your items and submit a few articles to article directories such as Ezine Articles you can get a healthy amount of traffic to your blogs. I recommend submitting no less than 20-30 articles for your blog.
When you go looking for keywords make sure that you only pick good keywords for your products. If your keywords are good, search engines will rank your blog higher and you can get more organic traffic from search engine users.
There are a lot of ways that you can make money using blogs. You can promote affiliate products, sell your own products, or place ads on your blog that you get paid for every time somebody clicks on one. And remember, you can make money online without selling “how to make money online” products. There are a lot of categories that you can choose from. You can go to Clickbank and check out their product categories for ideas.
Once you get one blog up and running successfully you can start working on another one and began building a mini-empire.
