Writing Blogs For Money

When researching about writing blogs for money, there are going to be a lot of differing opinions and promotions out there. Probably you will encounter many people trying to advertise their tried and tested ways of making money online, simply because you are interesting in making money with your blog.

Great Content

The truth is though, you should not be researching ways to make money online first. Instead, you should be researching ways to produce a good quality blog, well-written, with quality content, that users will fall in love with and return to again and again and again. If you can do this, then making money will easily become a by-product of that.

Not only is it true that the days of creating a one or two page blog and then linking it all over the place and enjoying first page rankings are gone, but it is also true that if you are going to make sales or advertising revenue via a blog, you are going to need to provide quality information. Internet users are smarter than they used to be, you will need to HELP somebody before you SELL to somebody, and the way to do this is through quality content. If you write quality, Google will notice, and so will users. They will share your work, and Google will notice this too. It is like a self-fulfilling prophecy, the more traffic you get, the more Google loves you, the more Google loves you, the more traffic you will get.

That can also mean that you find it to be a bit of a chicken and egg situation when you first start your blog. You are writing quality content, you know you can help people and they will enjoy reading your blog, but how are they going to find it in the first place?

Follow The Rules

The more you follow standard rules of creating websites, such as the aforementioned content, sharing with friends, posting on relevant forums, and writing articles such as this one, which link to your relevant website, the more you will find traffic starts to trickle in. At first, you might wonder where it is coming from, but if you keep writing, keep providing a service, that stream will get bigger and bigger, and THEN you can worry about ways to monetize your blog.

Monetizing

Ah, finally we get to the good stuff. How to actually make money from your writing. Whatever the focus of your blog is, it is going to be possible to make money from it, unless it is a personal blog, but even then it might be possible if you are writing your experiences about something. Here are some ways you could make money:

  • Adverts you are paid for through Google (or another)
  • Making commissions from products bought via your site (such as Amazon associates)
  • Selling your own services or products (such as local business or eBooks you wrote)
  • A whole many other ways besides

I would suggest in the beginning, you do not focus too much on the money. Instead, focus on how to write and how to build a quality blog. I have mentioned that Q word many times already, and I cannot stress it enough.

The World Is Your Oyster

Having an online business (and that is exactly what a blog can be for you) is a wonderful thing. It can really become your own piece of Internet Real Estate and if you can work hard you can reap the benefits from it.

I would also suggest you learn how to do keyword research so that you can really optimize your blog for Google and users. Deliver them the information that they want, and ultimately they will deliver you the money that you want.

There is some kind of paradox into this, when you want to get money don't think about the money at first. Money will come if you provide good service or in this case good content.

I agree with you about the importance of quality content. As a general rule, we need to develop relationships with our customers before we can sell things to them.
