How To Make Money Using Blogs

It can be difficult keeping just one blog up to date, but some bloggers maintain multiple blogs at a time. Some bloggers try to manage multiple blogs, but it ends up making all of the blogs unsuccessful. Quality matters when it comes to blogs and if quality is compromised to keep up with the quantity needed, it doesn’t always work.

blogging stomped the competition when it came to society listening to the news man or the next blog. The business world found new ways to advertise and draw others to their company. Many of them developed there own blogging service to compete with the new competition.

Maintenance Free, Spam free and Economical – With so many viruses on the run emails, ezines are filtered out with Spam filters. This is not the case with the blogs, because they are not delivered to the people. Blogs are written and published via downsized blog softwares, which are also very easy to use and maintain. What’s more, you do not have to list your blogs unlike ezines or newsletters on the server, and thereby you can save money on running and maintaining a blog.

The penultimate stage is to monetise your blog. There are two main ways in which to do this. The first is to add Google AdSense to your blog, and the second is to add affiliate links. Google AdSense is an advertising scheme in which advertisers pay a pre-determined sum of money to have their adverts placed across Google search pages and websites; as a blog publisher, you can add the advertising from AdSense on your blog and get paid every single time a visitor clicks on one of the ads. Google AdSense is absolutely free to sign up to. The second method of monetisation is affiliate links, which are simple text links or banners from vendors who are selling products. Typically you can expect a 50 – 60% commission on sales of digital products. Go to Clickbank to sign up for affiliate sites.

After you’ve finished editing your movie, you’ll need to compress it in preparation for uploading to your vblog. But here’s the catch. You want the movie compressed as far as possible so your audience will be able to download it and view it quickly; but the smaller you compress your movie, the less sharp your video quality will be. The idea is to find a happy medium, with your movie as small as possible, but with enough resolution left that your audience isn’t squinting to turn your grainy square-pixellated image into something vaguely human.

The term weblog was invented by Jorn Barger in 1997, but it was shortened to Blog by Peter Merholz in 1999. The word blog may have actually been a typo. Peter used the phrase ‘we blog’ in the sidebar of his weblog. Follow my profile started popping up more often on the Internet in 1999, and in March of 2003, the Oxford English Dictionary added the words weblog, weblogging, and weblogger to the dictionary.

If you’re a product-based business, always make sure they actually feature products on the blog before you pitch something. If they do, check their About section, their Contact section, and/or look for a Review Policy section. Most blogs that accept product reviews or features list the information on how to pitch to them somewhere on the site.

I still hate blogging. But life is not full of doing only those things we like. Use your blog if you are serious about promoting your business. And use your blog if you want to promote yourself. Don’t expect a million hits a minute but don’t be surprised if your blog turns out to be a positive addition to your web presence. I certainly was and continue to be amazed at the results.
