In these high-tech and web-driven times, there are a lot of innovative ways for making money online, and one of them is through “blogging”. Making money with blogs has never been as- easy as today, with blogs becoming more popular and more mainstream. But turning your regular blog into an effective money-making money is not that easy, because you will need to post interesting and helpful content regularly, and spread your revenue potentials to different streams or avenues, to bring the type of income that would allow you to quit your regular day job, and work as a freelancer.
The first step would be to sign for free blogging services like Google Blogger, WordPress and others. Determine your niche or favorite topics, whether you like talking about sports, politics, current affairs, events, car, women and even sex. And when creating content, make sure you are witty and informative, and your articles are interesting and useful.
And to promote your blog, make it a point to consistently deliver interesting and useful content for at least six months, with three new posts per week. Remember that in order for you to apply for most blogging jobs, you will need to at least be an active blogger for six months.
After creating your blog, and determining your niche, you could join affiliate marketing programs, where you will be able to post ads of your product sponsors, and earn commissions each time a sale is made through your blog. You could popular affiliate programs like Google Adwords, BlogAds, CrispAds and other popular programs.
If you want to apply as a blogger, you could actually apply to blog networks like 451 Press, Wise Bread and others, but make sure that you’ve already been consistently blogging for at least six month s already. You- could also visit blogging services such as the “Pro Blogger Job Board”, and apply for blogger job openings that are posted there.
Sometimes, blogs also get “sponsored” by a company or brand, especially if it likes the content posted there. Often times, some businesses or companies approach a blog which covers a topic or demographic that they are very much interested in.
However, you could also join popular online referral and affiliate programs like Commission Junction, Clickbank and Amazon.
