Structure Your Blog The Right Way
Ever heard the saying with success comes money? Well, that is the case when you structure your blog and brand the right way.
Attributing your focus on success instead of money is essential and it is the only way you can make money blogging because it requires patience, time, hard work, and consistency.
Most bloggers quit within the first3 months of blogging after realizing that it is not an easy path and in order to build a successful blog, you should treat it as a business with a brand name.
As I have discussed in an earlier article that the reason why most bloggers don’t have a viral post is that they never aim for one. It is easy to spot an opportunity if looking for one!
If you dedicate the right amount of time to using powerful strategies to structure a successful blog, you are most likely to have a well-known blog.
I have seen many videos on YouTube giving ideas on ways in which you can generate passive income working from home.
Blogging is usually number #1 on the list and that is because it is one of the most flexible jobs you can have, and the earning potential is limitless!
When you get a nice amount of people reading your articles, it brings in a nice income. Possible money earned? I know bloggers making between $2,000-$100,000+ per MONTH.
What is SEO?
SEO stands for search engine optimization and it is a process that optimizes a website, so it performs extremely well in organic search. As simple as that!
Why Is SEO important?
In today’s world, most consumers search the internet to buy a product or look for a service. They submit their keywords for search and get a list of relevant websites in return. People tend to visit websites that are on top of the list because they appear to be more relevant to their search.
This can be achieved through the right SEO strategies such as a fast-loading website, having internal and external links, using the right keywords, and the relevancy of the article’s information.
SEO is very essential when it comes to building a blog. The most amount of traffic that you will get will be from organic search and this can only be achieved when you have an SEO-friendly website/blog.
What to take in consideration for Generating Money on your Blog
Blogging is a business and it is a job. Anyone that tells you it is easy is lying; however, no other jobs are this easy to start and give you control over your own success like bogging does. What is the first step you may ask?
The first step is that you have to get started, most bloggers wish if they started their blog just a couple of years sooner. I know I do!
There are simple factors like the age of your website that will affect how much traffic you get from Google so the sooner you can get things started the better.
Start your blog now and spend on average five hours a week for the first year. Building it up slowly, by the time you want to rely on your blog for income it will be ready to start generating serious cash flow.
Structure Your Blog The Right Way
#1 niche and web hosting
Your niche is the topic you want to choose for your blog. You have to be very specific and considerate since you have to write and spread knowledge to others for a long time. Narrow it down by topic, by age group, by region or all three. This sets you up as an expert for that group of people, you will get found on Google faster.’ Web hosting is easy, it is a service that delivers your website to anyone on the internet, it is like the rent you pay to be on the net, and it is super cheap.
Bluehost is one of the most popular web hosts for bloggers starting at AU$3.93/month by the time I’m writing.
#2 find a group and get active
Find a group within your topic and get active. This one meant everything for me especially when I discovered a way to promote my articles on Quora. I found a lot of questions with many followers that needed to be answered, I simply copied my article to the answer section and added the link in the footer. Using this method has given many articles more views than usual.
Facebook groups are a great place to find similar-minded people where you can share your content and learn more about blogging and your niche. Being a part of a blogger community is going to mean the difference between success and frustration, not only does that community is going to encourage you, it going to be a constant source for guest posts and opportunities to grow your blog.
#3 building social media followers
I’m talking about building an empire! Social media visitors from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Quora account for between 10% to 30% of a blog’s traffic if not more depending on your strategies. There are bloggers that focus almost entirely on their social media followers and get all their traffic from those sites. Blogging is just another social community.
#4 learn the different ways to make money
Learning the different ways bloggers make money. Everyone knows that bloggers can make money by putting advertisements on their blog but this is actually one of the worst ways to make money blogging a lot of those ads you see on blogs make less than a penny per page view and need a large number of visitors to start seeing some good money.
Make money through affiliate programs, self-selling products such as books and courses, or collaborating with other brands.
Those were things to take into consideration in order to structure a blog the right way and not having to struggle halfway through.
