How to Be a Content Creator Successful: 6 Ways to Make Money blogging
Interested in earning money from blogging? It is possible to accomplish this in a variety of ways. In this post, I will discuss six of them. For those who want to make content full-time and have a lot of spare time, these options are great. If you want to do something part-time, you can find many other blogs that focus on these topics.
1. Pick a topic that interests you and start writing about it.
This is the single most important thing you should do for your blog. If you don't find it interesting, then who will? The topic should be something that you love and will keep you interested throughout the entire blogging process. Because I am passionate about technology, my posts on tech tend to be shared more than other topics. Take what excites you and run with it.
Also, ensure there is sufficient content for your subject if others are blogging about it. Readers will be able to search for their niche online and see many results, rather than only a few because yours was added last Wednesday after Google updated its algorithm. (This happens all the time).
2. Select the platform you prefer.
Next, select your blogging platform. This can be done on any computer. WordPress is the most well-known software. If you choose to use it, your rankings will improve since there are millions upon millions of WordPress websites.
Tumblr or Blogger can be used to create a blog, while Weebly or Weebly can be used for a more professional look. Make sure you find the right fit for your budget and fulfills all of your content sharing/creation needs!
Email lists are essential to all of these strategies. MailChimp has 2000 subscribers and is free for a limited time. This should give you enough to last a while. People can subscribe to MailChimp and have immediate access to your blog posts, product/service information, and other content.
3. Create an attractive blog design.
Next, you need to design a blog that appeals to your target audience. This can be done via a number of websites like Fiverr (for photos), iStockPhoto, and ThemeForest to create WordPress themes. Choose what you think is best! It's not worth spending too much money. You only need time to use any platform. The most important thing is to use the tools you need to accomplish your goals. Keep in mind that it's best to stay with the core tools until your audience grows. You can lose your readers if you have too much going on.
4. Write engaging content.
It is important to create engaging content that gets people reading. Lists, infographics, and photos are more popular than text posts. Finding your niche will make it easier as you will know exactly what kind of information they seek.
If there isn't much competition in the area, make sure you include at least one image in every blog post (and link back on iStockPhoto). This gives it a professional look, unlike blogs that only use plain text, or worse, no pictures at all. If necessary, videos can be included in some posts.
5. Traffic - Find ways to increase it.
This step is equally important, although it can be costly. Your blog must be found on the Internet. People will search for your topic and see it in their results. This is how exposure works. You can't ignore this part, or no one will ever read what you write (which defeats all of the blogging strategies).
6. Companies may sponsor posts.
Once you have built your audience, it's now time to reach out to other companies interested in sponsoring posts. It's very simple because most companies will contact you if advertising with your blog is something they are interested in!
This works by businesses wanting their name to be known across social media. So when people see your blog (with 2000+ followers), there's a good possibility that they can relate. That means more interest in any product or service. If you don't include images in sponsored posts, then nothing I've written here will mean anything.
