Blogging has its own position in today world. Almost everywhere, Blogging is just rocking. It is the best profitable way to earn money. Many People say that you’re not gonna make it if you’re doing just for money but for me its opposite. For example , when you join a job you know that you’re going to be paid for the work and then you work with full concentration and dedication and at last you get your reward right ?
This post is for beginners who want to open a blog and get profit without investing anything. i.e, FREE BLOG ( WORDPRESS.COM / BLOGSPOT.COM ).
Anyone can become a good blogger if he/she are passionate about something and can write about it anytime.
Blogging require two skills only:
• Learning new stuffs / topics
That’s it, isn’t it cool.
Even if you don’t have 100% of these skills you can learn them by regular practice.
NOW, First thing you need is
NICHE / TOPIC OF YOUR BLOG:
You don’t need any revolutionary idea or don’t think that there are many bloggers out there writing about the same niche and have huge audience.
When it comes to choosing a topic there are two key QUESTIONS to ask yourself”
1. Do I enjoy learning about this topic?
2. Are there others who are interested?
I’ll tell you the easiest method:
Think of the topic that you usually read about. Like for me, I can read stuffs about blogging and SEO for hours. It’s that simple. The topic which you read about all time is something that interest you.
The second thing is:
CHOOSING A BLOGGING PLATFORM:
It’s easy either . there are many blogging platform out there. Many people and many opinions. Most of the blogger start blogging on a self hosted wordpress platform . But we are talking about free blog right ? For new blogger like you, it’s wise to start blogging on blogspot platform of wordpress.com ( not wordpress.org) for the first month atleast .
Now the Third step is:
DOMAIN NAME / NAME OF YOUR BLOG:
This is the most important and fun step too. It’s the URL of your blog which the visitors will use to open your blog .
When you start a bog on blogspot or wordpress.com you get an address like name.blogspot.com and name.wordpress.com.
A custom domain name is like http://www.name.com for which you need to pay aroud $10-11. But again we’re talking about free blog.
Remember these things while choosing a domain name:
• Your domain should be easy to pronounce/say and easy to type.
• Make sure your domain name should not cofuse the listener
• Don’t use too long domain name.
Now next step is:
PLANNING YOUR FIRST POST/CONTENT:
Before you start writing your first post, you should make a content strategy.
For example if you’re picking a topic “blogging” to write, think of the most common question a user will have and you can create content like that.
Like here are some key questions about blogging:
• What actually is “blogging”?
• Why it is profitable way to make money online?
• How to create a free blog? Etc
Also don’t forget to give visual effect to your post. I mean you should give examples by charts and pictures. Don’t use pictures directly from google image . Use Flickr.
HERE COMES THE BIG STEP OF ALL:
Yes, if you’re planning to get profit from your blog and if you want huge traffic in your blog then you have to maintain consistency.
Make a target to write 1 article per day to get into the views of audience.
If you work hard you will see the result within months.
Now there are many ways you can earn huge from blogging but I am not going in depth of all as this post is all about opening a blog but I will definitely discuss the following ways in my next post (for sure).
Here are brief description:
Affiliate marketing are one of the best ways to make money since a single sale will make you much more than single click on a contextual click.
Most advertisement programs have a pay per referral program.
This will definitely and quickly add some good dollars into your pocket.
No doubt, google adsense is the best but it has some limitations in itself. You can try Adclerks, BuysellAds to secure some direct advertisements.
You can quickly make $10 or more from a single small review post.
I WILL TALK ABOUT “ EARNING MONEY FROM FREE BLOG “ IN MY NEXT POST FOR SURE. TILL THEN THNAKYOU . HOPE YOU LIKE IT.
