How To Make Money Blogging
I hate to break it to you …… you’re going to have to work for it. There will always be the carnival barker wherever money is involved. And Internet Marketing and Blogging is no different.
On the other hand you will always have the skeptics, that will see any and all Internet Marketers as Snake Oil Salesman. That’s all part of the challenge of marketing your wares Online.
If you are to have a future at marketing Online, you will have to put in your time and learn the ropes. Do yourself a huge favor and avoid the “Internet Marketing Guru’s” who promise you can make millions working an hour a day.
I understand that this works, I deal with this type of hype on a daily basis. I see sites that make outrageous claims and “crush it”. However, if I mention the word WORK, I can forget selling whatever it is that I’m promoting. I’m not really sure that I understand this culture of thinking.
There are essentially two methods of earning an income with your Blog; with front-end sales and back-end sales …… AND YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK AT IT TO BE A SUCCESS. And you will need to work at it longer than 1 hour a day!
Actually, you need to work as hard as possible and devote as many hours to your goals as is practicably possible.
I’ll get into “Front-End Sales” and Back-End Sales” in the next lesson, however, I wanted to address the issue of traffic as this is always of great concern to those who start a Blog. You see, your goal is really easy to define, drive as much traffic to your Blog and convert that traffic to sales.
There are a number of ways to drive FREE traffic to your site. However, these methods do nothing to bring targeted traffic to your site …… that targeted traffic that purchases your wares.
