The truth? It’s not easy making money online today. With so much competition and so many people and headlines vying for our attention, sifting through and finding reputable sources to generate any respectable amount of income through the web has become an ever-increasing challenge.
So, where are we supposed to turn to make money the legitimate way online? This isn’t just about generating passive income; this is also about finding ways and means to create an active income through the conveniences afforded to us by the internet
I’m often asked how to make money blogging so want in this article to lay out some basic steps that I see most bloggers who make a living from blogging go through.
Here is how to make money from a blog:
- Set up your blog
- Start creating useful content
- Get off your blog and start finding readers
- Build engagement with the readers that come
- Start making money from the readership you have one or more of a variety of income streams
Sounds easy, doesn’t it! On some levels the process is simple – but you need to know up front that there’s a lot to each step
Once your blog is up and running, you need to keep it active with new content to grow your business. While your blog can complement an existing business, it’s also a great way to add additional income. You can promote other companies’ products and services in affiliate marketing. You can offer to advertise or feed ad networks on to your blog. If you have a service business you’re promoting your blog, you can create your own information products to compliment it.
Or, if you have your own product, you can offer a service.
