So you’re asking yourself how to make money with a blog for beginners? Well, being a beginner or a rookie in blogging, you must be reading tonnes of “make money blogging” articles and videos out there. That’s not as large of an impact as all bloggers, be it Darren Rowse (of Problogger) or Brian Clark (of CopyBlogger), have been through this stage. There are a number of ways to make money blogging, but the level of difficulty varies from blog to blog. For example, it may take 1 day for Darren Rowse to hit the target of getting instant website traffic, while it may probably take months for you and me! Remember that a successful blog isn’t the one which has more number of posts, but the one which has more number of EVERYTHING – Fans, Followers, Traffic (of course), Email Subscribers etc.
Most of you won’t have a huge number of visitors in the above mentioned areas and this is why we are called beginners. But there’s no need to be tensed about it as even a baby doesn’t grow into an adult directly – there are several stages between the two. So in this article on how to make money with a blog for beginners, I will only be talking about the simplest ways that a beginner can implement.
How To Make Money With A Blog For Beginners?
Often neglected are some ways that beginners think are useless. We will be discussing three different ways, on how to make money with a blog for beginners.
1) Promotion At A Personal Level
In spite of having good friends from the same niche both on Facebook and Twitter, many beginners often neglect promoting their affiliate links on a personal level. The thought of “I’ll annoy him” often strikes in such conditions.
Point – This is so no right as putting up 37 banners on your blog will be much more annoying than personally promoting your affiliate links to your friends. And moreover, those banners rarely convert for beginners. And personal promotion guarantees (depends on your friend’s attitude too!) conversion. Hence, promoting at a personal level is a big factor for make money blogging
2) The Fact Of Investment
In any field, you need to invest before you can start earning from that business. Same is the case with blogging. There are several things you need to buy as a part of investment for your blog. I’ve personally invested in many things including CommentLuv Premium, Thesis Theme, Aweber etc. You should check out what to invest in your blog to see a few things which are worth investing in. If you don’t want to spend a bunch of cash all at once, try slow purchasing one after another. It’s important to remember that you don’t underestimate investing into plugins, theme, and other services as they’re a big part of growing your blog.
Point – Follow the world’s rule – Invest before you can earn.
3) Offer Your Expertise
Your blog could be a great platform for you to offer your services, like I do and earn on Fiverr. When you’re starting out you most likely won’t have that many clients but as time goes on you’ll start growing and seeing success. Here are some quick tips to become effective in providing your services from you blog –
- Create a informative, neat and attracting “Hire Me” page.
- Mention EVERY service that you can provide.
- Always show an appropriate portfolio, if applicable.
