Making money from your blog will be the simple part – building enough daily targeted traffic to start earning the money, is what might challenge you a bit.
But, you still need to learn a little bit more on how you are going to make money from your blog.
Always work on your Blog’s Conversions!
This is where you can get creative and do your own testing, and do a lot of research to come up with your own unique and profitable ways of making money from your blog’s traffic.
The one thing that you should do, no matter what, is build an email list.
Build an Audience and turn them into subscribers!
Learn all about building an audience and start capturing leads right away.
The bigger your list, and the better you treat it, the more money you can make from it, for a long time.
Let me give you the same advice I got, to monetize my blogs the best way possible ….
For a better example of how you should monetize your blog, look at other blogs online and model after them.
Take a closer look at this Blog Site for example; and see how I have monetized the design.
You can do the same things I’m doing, if you want.
And since you are brand new and you have a brand new website that gets no traffic yet – you should just throw some banners around your site and just one capture form on your sidebar, to start building your list.
Do not spend too much time here.
You want to work on your Traffic a lot more than anything at the beginning.
Once you have a good amount of traffic flowing to your site, you can then spend more time testing Banners and Capture Forms on your Blog’s Design. Got it?! :D
With a good amount of traffic coming in – you can see what works and what doesn’t on your site, a lot better.
You can test different Banner Placements and different Call-to-Actions to see what gets the most clicks, leads, and sales.
You can’t really work on your conversion rates, if you have little to no traffic coming to your site.
Work on your daily traffic flow, first, and while the traffic builds up, learn about Conversions and improve the numbers as your traffic-flow grows.
Create Valuable, EPIC Content
The way you are going to build a good audience, and the organic traffic to your new blog site, is with the amazing and epic content you are going to publish regularly!
The Quality of your Content will play a big part in the success of your blog online.
It will also play a very important part in the authority the search engines give your blog.
You want to take your time creating Epic Blog posts.
Blog posts that over deliver in value and solve many problems for people in your niche, are the type of epic blog posts you want to be publishing very often.
Take the time to learn internet marketing strategies to drive traffic, and put in the necessary work!!
Build an Audience
Always keep in mind your blog’s readers.
It is important that you understand your readers very well, what they want, and what can you do to solve their problems.
When it comes to making money blogging online, it is all about solving very specific problems and know how to put it in front of a huge amount of people who are looking for those solutions.
It is important to target your audience!
One way I target my audience is by using simple SEO techniques in my content, so the right people find my content.
I would say search engines are the best traffic source for targeted traffic!
It is all about delivering the best solution, with the right keywords and optimization, to tell the search engines what your content is about.
Another great way to target the audience of your blog, is by blogging about the type of people you want to attract.
You also need to think about what is it that you want your blog’s audience to do when they land on your blog posts.
Let me give you an example; let’s say I want to get people, coming to my internet marketing blog, into my affiliate programs – and I’ve found out that the best people to get into another affiliate program is an affiliate marketer.
Because, someone who is already in an affiliate program, is more likely to check out another affiliate program to work with, right?
So, I would have to publish a lot of content on affiliate marketing and things related to it, if I want to attract someone who is into affiliate marketing.
If you want to get people to buy a weight loss product from your blog, for an instance, then you need to blog about the type of information that someone who is ready to buy a weight loss product online is searching for. You get what I mean?! ;)
You can use keywords like; “I want to lose weight this month best pills to buy”, “cheap and best weight loss programs” – for example.
Try using keywords with words that tell you the user is ready to make a purchase.
They just need to find the right product and they are sold fast when they come across it.
You want buyers coming to your niche blog, not just anyone.

Build a Social Following
While you are building your blog and you are blogging weekly, you should also be growing your Social Network following.
Especially on Facebook.
You can get a massive amount of traffic to your blog online from Facebook alone. You just have to learn how to do it.
Read this blog post, where I teach you how I get traffic to my blog by implementing a simple Facebook Marketing Strategy.
The key to success in building a massive Facebook Following, just like with everything else, will be TAKING MASSIVE CONSISTENT ACTION.
The more you do the Facebook Marketing Strategies you learn, the bigger following you will be able to get.
You just have to be very Social.
If you are not, then no good Facebook marketing strategy can save you from not getting the results you want.
You have to be willing to talk to a lot of people daily, and meet new people from all over the world, daily.
Just make it a habit in your life to network with people on the social networks every day, every week.
Blogging weekly, and sharing your blog posts on your Facebook Wall, Facebook Fan Pages, and many Facebook Groups, will definitely help you gain some new readers to your blog.
The social networks will also help you BRAND yourself and your blog.
You need to start using social networks to brand yourself and your blog!
You just have to be very consistent with everything you do in the Social Networks.
Nothing will happen overnight and you have to work for the results you want to get.
Learn how to become a better networker online.
Don’t just be someone who messages people on social networks.
You want to become the best at the things you do for your online business. And one of those things in this industry, would be people’s skills.
I guess we can also call it “Social Skills”. ;)
You need to be a good networker and not just someone who is only interested in making a quick sale off someone you just met.
You want to build Rapport with every one you meet on Social Networks.
Talk about the real you and also ask people about them.
Then you can talk a little bit more about your blog and what you do.
Build some good trust fast, and become good friends online.
Lead with value and always come off as a good leader to follow online.
Truly care about people, and that alone will show!
Once you have a good relationship with the people in your networks, they will be more likely to pay attention at the things you recommend and the things that are working for you.
Celebrate every single success you have online!
When you get some results online, it doesn’t just gives you more energy to keep you going, but when you keep on promoting those results to people, they will cheer you up and sometimes join you on your journey to success, and maybe even buy what you recommend!
Watching someone you know, succeeding and making it happen online, while you are struggling, will just make you think about asking them to help you out and you might end up working with them and buying what they recommend you, isn’t that right?!
There is a power in leading with value and success.
No matter how small the result you get is, you should still make a Facebook Status about it and promote it as much as possible.
Keep showing your progress in the Social Networks, and as you grow your network, more people will like you and want to work with you.
You just got to work as much as possible, to start getting some results online, when you are newbie. Especially if you are starting from the bottom.
Here is some powerful knowledge on Facebook Marketing that you should take the time to learn and implement:
Learn how to get the most leads out of your blog and the traffic that you get online.
Monetize your blog to capture leads for you, and then just focus all of your energy in building up the daily traffic flow to your pages!
If you asked me; “how many leads a day does it take to make 1 to 2 sales online?..”
The answer will depend on the traffic, the quality of your funnels, your products, and the conversion rates.
But, with a good sales page, and a very valuable product, with the right targeted traffic – I would say 40 to 60 leads can generate you 1 to 2 sales per day.
You just have to make sure you are offering something REALLY GOOD.
Don’t just sell any product and ruin your reputation online.
Work on your Capture Page’s/Squeeze Page’s Conversion Rates.
It is important that you learn how to split-test and track clicks and links, in order to find out what works best.
Don’t just promote a Capture Page – learn if it is getting good conversion rates or not!
You want to test many different capture pages with different ad copy, colors, and even backgrounds.
Get creative with your capture pages, and learn the best way to make people trade their email for something they are really interested in.
Learn the art of capturing leads online.
It really takes testing and experience to become good at it.
To help your blog grow faster with email marketing, what you can do is keep sending people back to your most valuable posts on your blog.
Try to provide more value than sales pitches in your emails.
Send people back to valuable blog posts which are monetized with affiliate links and offers. Get it?! ;)
People will buy what you recommend, when they really see that you truly care and that what you recommend really works.
If you are not building your email list right now, what are you waiting for??
The leads will add up over time, so get to it right now!
Organization & Self-Discipline
Being very organized when you are working online will make a huge difference in the amount of productivity you put online.
If you are not very well-organized, you might get frustrated a lot easier when you find yourself clueless on what to do next.
You always need a plan, a blue-print, to follow daily.
Come up with a Blue-Print to Success you can follow daily!
Get very organized with all of the links you use online.
There is a way to create folders on your internet browser, if you are working on a computer.
What I personally do, is organize all of the links I need when I work online, in different categorized folders.
As you can see, I have everything ready to go on my Mozilla Firefox Internet Browser.
You should do the same and make it a lot easier for you to have access to everything you need, to take your blog one step closer to success every single day.
Make sure you also have a strong Self-Discipline!
If you lack a strong self-discipline to force yourself to work even when you don’t feel like it, then you might struggle online and that might be the reason why you are not getting any results online right now.
You are lacking strong self-discipline to make yourself do the things you need to be doing to move towards your own success.
Building a successful blog online is not hard, but it can be challenging for most, just because they lack a strong self-discipline.
You need to be the best BOSS you can be to yourself.
You are also your own employee, so you need to act like one when you need to get the job done.
As a good Boss, come up with a working schedule you can follow every weekly, and a daily action plan as well.
Write out a nice schedule on a paper or just print it out. Then put it somewhere in your home office where you will be able to see it daily.
Treat Blogging just as a “real Job”.
Treating it like that will give you the boost to do the necessary work on a daily basis and follow your own schedule.
You should also print out a Daily Tasks List.
Place it next to your work-at-home schedule.
This alone will help you stay organized and in a better mood to put in some productive work for your blog online.
Become the best Boss and Employee you can be of your own online business! :D
