This week I want to pick-up on last weeks tread …… moving forward with the central theme of this Blog which is to “Learn How To Make Money Blogging”.
I guess I should have sub-titled this Blog “Learn How To Make Money With Your Blog”. Most Bloggers will attempt to monetize their personal Blogs. This is a real challenge for anyone. If you are a true hard and fast Blogger your product is indeed your content. The only way to monetize that content is through advertising.
However, most will try other methods of monetizing which will define them not as Bloggers, but rather as Marketers.
I want to talk to you this week about the process of marketing your Blog from the very beginning even if you have no products to promote. If you are new to Internet Marketing, the easy way to go is to start your own personal Blog about your personal interests which will make things really easy for you. If you Blog about a niche you have no personal interest in, you will soon abandon it.
When starting a Blog you will have little traffic if any until you gain a little traction. This process takes about 18 months. During this time you need to write as if you are trying to sell a product for a profit. What exactly do I mean by this?
Eventually in order to pay the bills you will be selling something, and the best way to do this is to sell your own products and ideas. This will take good copy-writing skills …… START NOW!
Perhaps you are interested in “Affiliate Marketing”. This will take similar skills.
Copy skills must be developed early on if you are to have any type of a chance to survive Online. Learning “Copywriting”, “Content-writing”, “Comment-writing” and “Play-writing” are all important to your progress and you have to start applying these techniques from your very first post.
Indeed you should apply these techniques even to your E-Mails if you wish to excel. Again, START NOW!
To cover this subject clearly will take several posts so next week we will start with “Content-writing”.
