One year ago, my father asked me, the young internet entrepreneur, “What’s a blog?” I paused for minute. I had heard the term before … but I couldn’t answer him. I honestly didn’t know. Little did I know that so many people would soon tap into a new type of gold mine and make money with blogs.
Become an affiliate. Companies are always seeking individuals to sell their product or service online. As an affiliate you can market these products and services on your blog or website. You will place a banner or link which is provided by the company on your blog or website. Every sale that is generated from your website will earn you a commission (usually 5-20%). You would be surprised by the number of companies that offer an affiliate program. Many fortune 100 and 500 companies have affiliate programs that pay extremely well.
If you’re pitching a guest post (where you would write a post for their blog with a link back to your website), make sure they accept guest posts. Many Read my story that accept guest posts will have a “Contributors” tab or a “Guest Post” tab or button with more details. Or just comb through old entries and see if you can find any.
OMake your blog visually exciting. Choose an attractive background colour and provide photos or images. Consider sound. Develop your blog as you would a web site, with the same visual appeal. Some bloggers even add video and sound to their online blogs. There is no need to spend many hours composing art works, but know that simple text on a white background may simply not draw as many readers as you like.
It will always require some effort to actually make money. This is true for every successful Internet Marketer out there, and almost any other really rich person. They had to work to get to that point and become successful. They also had the right tools and knew how to use them. You can’t be successful in anything without the right tools, and that especially goes for internet marketing. Although there’s a lot of bogus internet marketing “systems” out there, a few of those systems actually work and give you the right tools you need to be successful. One of these systems is discussed in my blog, which I’ll include a link to in the resource box. Feel free to check it out after reading this article.
There are tons of ways to find blogs that will cover you. You’ve probably heard a bajillion people say to check Alexa rankings or use specific blog search engines. These are all great ways, no doubt. But, as always, we rock things a little different over here in my joint.
However, if you know how to leave the right comments at the right blogs, then leaving comments on other people’s blogs can work for you. Let’s address the three points above in more detail, as well as how you can increase backlinks to your blog using comments.
There are so many things working for blogs that internet marketers should pay attention to. They are very beneficial, and they cannot be dismissed. It would be wise to make good use of blogs today, and experience the boost they could provide for your online business.
