Creating and maintaining a blog is one of the best ways to market yourself or your company on the internet. Blogging provides a wealth of opportunities for both yourself and your readers.
The great thing about blogs is that people read them for fun. Customers may be becoming more jaded about advertising, but they will gladly read a blog that has some interesting things to say. Many top companies are using blogs to deliver a better and more personal message about their companies – and the strategy seems to be working.
Generating traffic and popularizing your blog can be a herculean task especially if you are new to blogging. You might be asking yourself questions like; who will read my blog? Will the information I post in my blog be interesting? How often will I post content on my blog? And many more questions. These kinds of questions are normal to ask and sometimes the idea of starting a blog can be intimidating given that the internet is a large ocean with many fish which you are expected to catch in order to guarantee your success.
Google AdSense. I told you in the beginning that making money online blogs does not require any recruiting or selling. By simply placing a 2 line code on your blog or website you have the potential to earn daily. This code rotates a series of ads. Every time on of your website visitors clicks on that ad you earn a commission. Google has millions of advertisers so there will never be a shortage of ads to circulate. You can earn hundreds of dollars per day from individuals clicking on the ads on your website. No sale is required in order to receive payment from Google. You can receive .5 or .10 cents per click to up to $50 or even $60 per click depending on the product.
A blog should not ramble and cover multiple unrelated topics. Stay focused on what your blog is about. If you want to blog about several unrelated topics, create more than one blog. You can even network and cross-link them. Just try to keep each blog focused on its intended purpose. You’ll find it is a lot more effective at capturing and keeping interest.
Give your readers the ability to comment on your Q&A posts and to respond to other comments. You can develop a good relationship with readers this way and become more active in your blog community. Once people realize that you offer a response to comments, it will ensure that they come back to the blog, just to read what you have to say.
This can become a daunting task for many new bloggers. However, if you keep your blogs interesting and high in quality, anyone who visits it will be compelled to comment on it making it interactive.
Though considered to be an informal platform for sharing information, a blog can help a great deal in improving the rankings of your site. Hence, it is important that you give it as much importance as your site. A lot of attention needs to be given into designing and promoting the blog.
