Being a beginner or a rookie in blogging, you must be reading tones of “make money blogging” articles and videos out there. That’s not a big deal as all bloggers, be it Darren Rowse (of Problogger) or Brian Clark (of CopyBlogger), have been through this stage.
Undoubtedly, there are several ways to make money blogging but the level of difficulty varies from blog to blog.
For example, it may take 1 day for Darren Rows to hit the target of getting 1000 visits from Twitter, 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.
I’m sure you don’t have huge numbers in the above mentioned fields 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 blogging for beginners, I will only be talking about the simplest ways that a beginner can implement.
Make Money Blogging For Beginners – How?
Often neglected are some ways that beginners think are useless. We will be discussing three ways, as mentioned in the title, on how to make money blogging 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 will 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 useful plug-ins, Genesis 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’re not able to afford too much at a time, go slow and buy one after another. But don’t underestimate investing into plug-in, theme, and other services as they’re a big part of 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 Elance.
Being a beginner, you might not attract many clients but as you grow, success will follow. Following are some quick tips to become successful 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.
Conclusion – Make Money Blogging for Beginners
