Profitable Blogger Strategies

The very first thing you should consider starting with when it comes to making money online is blogging. If you establish a blog, not only is it free, but you can monetize it in several ways.

What is a blog? A blog, originally known as “weblog” is a continuous string of posts that you make about whatever you want to talk about. It can be reviews, information about your particular niche, or just what your thoughts are on the world at hand. If you are sharing valuable information in a particular “niche” you can actually get sponsors to post ads on your blog. However it is easier to monetize your blog in other ways.

For instance, there is Google. Google has the “Adsense Program”, named because the ads actually “sense” what you are blogging about and match the topics accordingly. I will have more information on Adsense for you shortly. There is also something very smart that you can do. You can advertise other people’s products on your blog, by being an “affiliate” for them. I’ll be going over that as well. For now, the most common thing to do is to get your free “WordPress” blog and install it on your server. That isn’t very hard to do. So go ahead to now and download and install your free WordPress blog and let’s forge ahead!

While you can do it in Microsoft Word, Wordpad and other text editors, many folks choose to start out by download the free program called Kompozer, formerly known as NVU. The Graphical User Interface makes it very easy to use, but it is a powerful program. There are tutorials on how to use it online as well.

One way you will use Kompozer in a very simple fashion is to change the name on sales pages so that YOUR name appears on them. You can do other simple tasks like changing the price, adding a “form” from your autoresponder so you can capture folks information such as their name and email address, and more. These are all basic functions that are simple to do, and you should make sure you learn to do them as we progress. So go download what could be the best freebie ever, Kompozer, and have a blast!
