Can you order your blog to start making money?
Yes, you can if you follow the simple tips I’m about unveiling. You see, making profit with your blog can be a source of motivation, to work smarter, and change the world.
Most people have good intentions of transforming the world around them, but without the “MONEY” it would be extremely difficult to do anything.
This is the ultimate truth and shying away from it will not help. However, we need to first consider what “command” stands for.
It simply means to order, to obtain something with a deliberate effort. And that’s the beauty of blogging. You could actually achieve your goals if you dare the challenge.
I’ve four questions for you. Once you can answer them, then you’re set to start making a living with your blog. Here are the questions:
What’s your BIGGEST blogging challenge?
Everyone has a challenge, and bloggers are not different. At the dawn of the day, life hands to us challenges, which we must overcome or else, lose out on the benefits.
Knowing what’s stopping you from making money online can be the key to changing the ugly story.
What’s the state of your mind as a blogger? Do you get motivated by “those” flashy $1000 per day clickbank screenshot?
Is your challenge your inability to focus on your blog and engage your audience? Your excuse is also an integral part of your challenge.
Once you can stop blaming others for your failure, you’d start to see a bright light shinning forth on your path. Now that you’ve known the blockage on your way to living the internet lifestyle, move on to the next line…
Is quality content your #1 priority?
I need to be specific here. If you’ve no passion to see that your target audience is satisfied with the content you provide them, you’d struggle to make money online.
Successful blogs have never been launched – they can only be built with valuable and evergreen content.
This year, make it a duty to produce excellent articles, blog posts, video and podcasts for your readers.
These people have bugging needs, they want desperate solutions. Of course, they can’t hold you responsible for NOT solving all their problems. In fact, if you dare to solve all their problems, you’d digress and fail.
All that your target audience wants is for you to provide an authentic answer to “that” particular problem you claim expertise in. The more value you can bring to the right audience, the money you can make.
Whose advice do you take?
You must be careful whose advice you take as you go about blogging? You see, the rate at which information is being distributed on the internet is too high. If you’re not careful, you’d fall prey of hype, and waste your hard earned money.
When it comes to blogging, don’t let anyone deceive you. Stick to your passion. If you don’t have passion for business, don’t TRY to blog about it. If you know how to design website, then start writing about it.
That’s the only way to stay transparent and build trust eventually. It’s a gradual process, but if you don’t like what you’re doing, you’d give up pretty soon.
You could make money with your blog, but the best time to ditch some of the advice you’ve received is now. Do what you love and focus on producing quality content continually. Successful bloggers are made, not born!
Did you monetize your blog well?
Ironically, most of the people who complain that blogging is too difficult to make money, didn’t monetize at all. Those who placed advertisements and affiliate banners did it the wrong way.
Truth be told, if the ads or affiliate banners you embed on your sidebar and within the content aren’t closely-tied to your niche, it can’t make you money.
It doesn’t matter how much traffic your blog attracts daily, it’d still be futile. The Year is still virgin and the best moment to inventory your blog to determine whether your mode of monetization is good or not.
Don’t bring sentiments into this – Even if your mentor owns the affiliate product, you’re not mandated to promote it, except it’s what can interest your readers and help them.
