How To Make Real Money Online Blogging
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are many different ways you can learn how to make real money online. However, there is one imparticular way that is pretty easy to do, and more importantly easy for someone new. I'm talking about blogging. There are thousands of people who are making real money online by blogging. In this article we are going to talk about how you can do the same, and how to get started.

The first thing you need to do is start a blog (Obviously Frank!). To set up your own blog on your own hosting account will cost you less then twenty bucks. You can pick up a domain name for around $10 and a hosting account for around $5 per month. Now, you can set up a blog with wordpress or blogger that isn't going to cost you any money, however I do not recommend doing so. If you are going to try and make money online blogging, you want to be in full control of your blog.

When you own your own domain name, which is hosted on your hosting account, you are in complete control of your blog. When you have a free blog with wordpress or blogger, they are in control. If they don't like what you're talking about or anything at all about your site, they can take it down without warning. So if you are serious about trying to make money with your blog, it's well worth the few bucks to get is set up.

Now, for all of you non-techy people out there, don't get scared about buying a domain name, hosting account, and setting up your own blog. It requires NO techincal skills whatsoever, and you can be up and running in just a few clicks of your mouse!

Next you want to decide what to blog about. This is easy if you are passionate about something. It will be easy to write everyday, and you will already be knowledgeable about the topic so providing quality information will be a breeze. For an example, lets say you love photography. You can start a blog about photography. You would then start posting articles to your blog that are relatted to photography. It can be anything from personal experience, tips and tricks, helpful information for new photographers, ect... you are limitless to what you can write about.

Once you have your blog going and have a few posts on it, your next step is going to be getting traffic to your blog. There are many ways to do this, some of the most effective ways being free. A good place to start would be social media. You should have a Facebook account, Twitter account, Youtube account, ect... You goal is to build a following and make friends with other people who share your passion. Each time you write a new blog post, share it with all of your social media friends. This is only one way to drive traffic to your blog, but for the sake of this being a 10 page article, I'm not going to go into too much detail on other methods.

Here's how you start making real money online with your blog...

Now that you are blogging and getting traffic, it's time to monatize your blog. You can do this two ways. You can become an affiliate for products related to your blog, in this case photography products. You can also become a Google Adsense publisher and make money from Google. It is free to become an Adsense publisher, and it's free to become an affiliate. To find affiliate products to promote on your blog, you can head over to Clickbank.com for digital products and Amazon.com for phycical products.

Once you have chosen what products you would like to promote, you can start adding them to your blog. With Google, all you have to do is place their ads on your blog. They will automatically be related to your topic and when any of your visitors click on the Google ads, you get paid. With your affiliate products, you can also place a banner for them, or you can start another page in your blog titled "Recommended Resources / Products". When someone buys one of the products from your blog, you earn commission.

Just remember, you need to be in control of your blog, you should have some basic Internet marketing skills to be able to drive traffic to your blog, and you should become an affiliate so you can monatize your blog. Those are the 3 main components you need to make real money online blogging. Of course there will be other factors that will contribute to your success and to you makin money with your blog, but these are the basics of a successful blog.
