How To Make Money While You Sleep With Affiliate Marketing.19. October 2019
Do you want to start a blog and make money immediately. I started Blogging in november 2019, and made money from it right away. I made money from my first month of blogging.
Earn money with a Blog didn’t happen by accident. I intended to make money blogging, I wanted to start my own business and live on my own term. So I did what it takes for it to happen. And I finde every day new ways to do it better then the day bevor. I feel like it’s kind of taboo as a blogger to say “I want to blog for money”. Well, I wanted to blog for money. I started my blog because I wanted to make money from home. Since you’re reading this post, I’m guessing you want to start a blog you can monetize too. And I’m guessing you want to monetize it quickly.
Making money with blogging right after the start is not difficult. The income is increasing very slowly, especially in the first few weeks.
You should know that! Perseverance is in demand and right at the beginning it is necessary to do many things at the same time to get your blog and the necessary traffic forward. The income increases gradually by itself.
Making money blogging is totally possible for most niches.
Good things don’t only happen to others; they can happen to anyone, anytime, no matter your age, your financial & personal situation. You just have to be smart about it and work your ass off every day. So if you really want to be a full-time blogger, you can and you will. Persistence and consistency are key.
I’m going to tell you exactly how I did it; how I created a blog that made money from Day 1 and how you can, too. I’m going to tell you what mistake you must avoid, and what you absolutely need to do to make it happen.
I have to warn you; this is not going to be a “how to start a blog in 10 minutes” kind of post. I am convinced that you cannot & should not start a blog in 10 minutes; starting a successful blog takes time, a lot of thinking and planning, and a lot of work before the launch.
It can take months of work before you can launch your blog, depending on how you want to do it. What your readers will see on your launch day is only the emerged part of the iceberg!
HOW TO START A BLOG THAT MAKES MONEY
1. CHOOSING YOUR BLOG NICHE
The first thing I did was choosing my blog niche. Starting a blog is a good idea, but what are you going to blog about? What are you good at? What are you passionate about?
Defining a clear niche is a step that a lot of newbie bloggers underestimate, but it’s actually going to be the core of your blog so you want to make sure that you’re thinking it through.Choosing a good niche for your blog isn’t just what topic are you gonna blog about; it’s what problem are you going to help your audience solve.
One of the keys to making money blogging is to offer a solution to a problem, and that’s something you must figure out when deciding on a blog niche. Are you going to help your readers to find cruelty-free cosmetics? Develop their sense of style? Lose weight? Make money online?
2. CREATE YOUR BRAND
The second step to creating a successful blog is to brand your blog. In a word, your brand is how you want your blog to be perceived.
How do you want people to feel when seeing your blog? Having a coherent brand will make your blog look professional, and a professional blog is a blog your audience will trust. It will also help people identify with your blog which is SO important if you want them to stick around for a while (and you do want that).
In order to create a brand, you need to work on different things: what logo are you going to use, what color palette are you going to use, what fonts, what kind of photos?
Ask yourself, what message do you want to send to your audience through your visuals & content?
Another part of creating your brand is to find the perfect blog name. Try not to come up with something too long; your blog name should be 3words long max, easy to spell, and it should remind your audience of your blog niche.
Be careful about choosing something that’s available! You can check if the domain you want is available here. If it’s not, try to add words like “the”, “my”, “your”, “blog”. Last but not least, try using “.com” when available!
3. PLATFORM & HOSTING
WHAT IS WEB HOSTING?
HERE ARE SOME OF THE REASONS WHY BLUEHOST IS ACCORDING TO ME THE BEST HOSTING COMPANY TO START YOUR BLOG WITH:
- It is easy to use
- You get to monetize your blog any way you want to (no restrictions at all)
- it’s one of the most affordable hosting companies ($3.95/mo here)
- you get a FREE domain ($15 value)
- They have been working with WordPress for a while now, making WordPress.org completely free if you choose to go with them
- They are installing WordPress.org automatically at no cost to you (They do all the work for you! That makes your blog creation process super easy, that was a huge help for someone who’s not tech-savvy at all like me!)
- You will be able to install literally any existing WordPress theme out there, making your blog look so much more professional (because let’s be honest a blog aesthetic plays a major role in its growth).
- Also, know that Bluehost offers a 30 days money-back guarantee; you can cancel anytime within 30 days after your purchase and get a full refund on your hosting service if you’re not satisfied. So basically, you’re not taking any risk.
HOW TO START A BLOG WITH WORDPRESS AND BLUEHOST:
1. ONCE YOU’VE FOUND A DOMAIN THAT IS AVAILABLE, GO TO BLUEHOST.COM AND CLICK ON THE “GET STARTED NOW” BUTTON.
2. CLICK ON THE PACKAGE YOU ARE INTERESTED IN.
Their hosting prices allow you to start a blog for as low as $3.95/mo. The basic plan is probably enough for you (that’s what I have).
3. SIGN UP FOR A NEW DOMAIN NAME.
4. ENTER YOUR PERSONAL AND PAYMENT INFORMATION.
5. NEXT, YOU WILL BE ASKED TO ENTER A PASSWORD.
4. BUILDING YOUR SITE
As for how many posts you should write before your blog goes live, the answer may vary from one blogger to another but one thing is sure: you do not want your blog to be empty on your launch day. I recommend that you write at least 20 quality posts before you launch your blog. That way your audience will have enough to read to stick around for a while! More posts = more time spent on your blog.
5. LEARNING MARKETING & MONETIZATION
And more importantly… Start promoting your blog before you launch it! Start building your email list and social media, create connections with other bloggers, start finding your future readers. This part is basically what makes the difference between a blogger who struggles to make money for months/years, and a blogger who makes money from the start. Don’t neglect it!
6. LAUNCH IT!
Last but not least, launch your baby!
Keep in mind that all the work must be done before you launch your blog. One of the reasons why a lot of bloggers struggle when their blog launches is because they launch their blog with no preparation. Don’t be one of these bloggers! Grab the ebook and start preparing your launch!
