‘What would you do if you had to start your internet business from scratch with no money at all?’ This is a question that often pops up on the message boards of affiliate marketing sites. It usually comes from newbies trying to figure out what works best and fast. And the same answer comes up from experienced internet gurus: Create money-making blog empires!
Why are blog empires a perfect way for making money?
1. Blogs are easy to set up and manage:
2. There are no start-up costs:
Blogging services like Blogger are absolutely free. You don’t need to spend money on hosting and domain names. If you run 30-50 niche sites and pay a domain name for each, it’s a huge sum of money. If you run 30-50 or hundreds of blogs, when using free blogging services, it doesn’t cost you a dime.
3. Blogs are indexed by search engines within days:
One of the main problems that website owners have to overcome is getting into search engines. With Google, it can be an annoyingly long process (think of the Google sandbox effect). In the meantime, blogs are indexed much faster, usually, within days, thanks to RSS feeds.
4. Blogs are a better way to promote affiliate products:
This comes from the nature of blogs. Blogs are a series of subjective opinions written by everyday people. It is a well-known fact, that the best way to sell affiliate products is to write a sincere, positive review. Experienced internet gurus use this technique to rank in tens of thousands of dollars monthly. Word of mouth advertising is still one of the most effective methods to persuade people to buy something. A well-written blog post can do this for you.
5. Blogs can be easily monetized by using AdSense:
Contextual advertising is a popular way for webmasters to earn money without effort. With blogs, it is the same. Just put a piece of code into your page’s source and there you have it. Then wait for your visitors to click the ads. Even if you don’t know much about HTML codes, you can benefit from displaying text ads. Blogger offers you to put AdSense ads on your blog’s template, and you can do this from the Blogger menu with a few clicks, so no need to bother with HTML codes. It even offers you to match the color of ads with the colors of your blog’s layout. It is called blending, and it increases click-through rates enormously.
Secret methods of creating money-making blog empires fast
The first method is to create blogs that concentrate on certain problems. In your posts first, describe the problem, then offer a solution. This solution should be an affiliate product or service, that you promote. Most people use the internet to find information for solving a problem. For example, treatments for acne problems, solutions for money matters, where to rent a car on holidays, reliable software against viruses and spams, etc. This is where you can write about how you had the same problem and how this or that product solved it.
This is a less often used method. Use your blogs as online courses or online tutorials. Find a topic and start a series of posts like it’s a series of lessons. Your first post should be lesson 1, the second post should be lesson 2, and so on. Place affiliate links into your posts. You can also use these blogs for generating AdSense revenue. Keep the number of lessons between 10-20. If you don’t like writing or don’t know the subject well enough, go to free article directories. Pick 10-20 articles of your subject area and convert them into a series. That’s all.
