In 2021, due to lockdowns and mandates, more people than ever before began to look for ways to earn money working from home. In particular, many looked at blogging as an online business. The problem though, was that many of them didn't really know how to make money from a blog. So just how can it be done?
Keep reading and I'll go through 3 steps that you need to take to become an online blogger.
First, you need to find the right niche to work in. You need to find a “hungry market,” people who are looking for information to read and looking for products to buy.
It also needs to be a niche that you're interested in because you'll be writing a lot of blog posts about it.
Once you know what you'll be blogging about, you then need to create a blog. This is simple to do using all the blogging software available. You can even set up a blog for free through platforms such as Google's own Blogger service. Blogger has been around for years and is used by many successful bloggers, including me.
Once you've set up your blog, fill it with useful content, products to sell, and onsite advertising for extra income. Some bloggers earn thousands this way, selling products online as affiliates, and earning money through PPC advertising.
Once you get enough pages set up, it's time to market your blog to get as many visitors as possible. And if you have an email subscription box on your blog, you can stay in touch with all those who sign up.
Marketing can be paid for, or can be done for free through social media and article directories. When you're first starting out, it's better to use free marketing, although you can go ahead and pay for it if you want to and if you already have the funds. Personally, I've never paid for online advertising for any of my website and blogs. Perhaps I'm leaving money on the proverbial table by marketing this way, but my online success over the years has been good without it.
And that's the 3 steps you need to take. Choose your niche, set up a blog, join an affiliate network to find products to promote, and market your blog in as many places as you can to get thousands visitors. Just make sure you're marketing in the right places to get the right kind of visitors.
