Blogging is an informational discussion website where people share
different ideas on various topics. People normally think that starting a blog is just for fun and for posting
things that one really loves. Well it is true. One can just start a blog for fun and post all their things of
interest, educational materials or even fun stuff. A blog can even be used to make money. Here are a few
tips on how to earn an extra coin from blogging:
1. Set up your blog
First of all you have to start your blog. For a blog, one has to choose what they want to write about. After getting what one wants to write about, one has to choose a name
that is suitable to them. Choosing a good name is vital as it will help in reeling in more readers. A good
name will also be the automatic selling point of the content posted on the blog. If it is a food blog then
try and relate it directly to exactly what you want to write. An example is the fruity treats for a food blog
that deals with sweets or pastries one can make at home. Getting a wrong name will confuse your
audience and even sometimes making it hard for one to relate to it. Make the name easy in
pronunciation and explaining. This will make it easier for the audience to spread the word to their
friends and family. One should also get a domain name. The Domain name ensures one’s brand is unique
and no one can use it. The domain name is use to identify one’s brand to a particular network domain.
Uniqueness the end game in any business so as clients can relate themselves to it. One should also
ensure they pay for their blog. There are various packages that one might pay for online for the constant
and effective running of the blog.
2. Start creating useful content
One has to choose the content they are doing carefully. Angles that most people take are mostly either political,
entertainment, comedy based blogs, food blogs and sports based blogs just to name but a few. Different
people have the different things they love reading about.
For food blogs ensure that you specify them in such a way that you do not find yourself losing your
audience. This is because some readers might prefer pastries as part of their undertakings. Some may
prefer salads as part of their favorites. If you have to do a food blog that is all inclusive, one has to
ensure there are specific themes of week guidelines on what one is posting. This should be done prior to
posting to ensure the readers anticipate for their favorite reads.
Start finding readers
It is important for one to get a great readership. How does one get readership for a newly started blog?
One has to first create a person profile. What is a person profile? This is a rough sketch of who your
readers will be, what their needs are, what should their feelings be once their read your blog and what
are the long term benefits of your readers from the blog. Once this is secured then one can go to the
field and gather a great number of readers.
3.Develop a healthy engagement with readers that come by
This actually the easiest part if done right. One just has to engage with his or her online community.
Always respond to the comments posted by readers. Always reach out to the readers personally and
make them feel as if they can reach you whenever they want clarification on a particular topic. Once the
readers are satisfied, one can be fully confident that the word of your blog will go out and more
readership will come in.
4. Start making money from your blog’s readership
Making money is the end game in any business one has to start. A money making blog is one of the best
thing one can ever do and succeed easily. How does one make money from readership of a blog? There
are different ways of doing it. The first one is advertising. If one gets companies to advertise on your blog
then one can make money from it. Companies advertise products that they think will hit the target
market and if your blog is one that attracts them then there will be funds pumped into it. One can also
do consultancy services for different clients on different topics. A blog with great topics will help one in
getting clients who want advice on how to dissect the market.
