I often field questions from entrepreneurs that are completely awestruck at the possibility that their product can adorn the pages of a glossy magazine. Or, I see the stars swirl around in their eyes that, maybe…just maybe….one day….they could share their sage wisdom with Meredith Viera and the Today Show audience.
So I remain with my hand raised on “hating Streaming like a pro“. And I fully admit I continue to blog. The lesson that I have learned is that no web technology should be ignored when it becomes mainstay. If you are serious about adding credibility to your business then setting up a blog should also be part of the plan.
So you can make money off your blog by displaying ads and getting paid when people click on the ads. You can also expand on this by creating a downline, using your blog as the traffic generator. The possibilities are limitless, and you should research other people’s blogs and see how they implement tricks you’ll find in “Money to Be Made Online” in their blogs and online business enterprises.
Oh, I’ve had a bunch of blogs cover my business, but I got no sales. Bloggers are just looking for free stuff anyway. Plus I can’t afford to send them samples or waste my time writing guest posts. Enough with these little guys, I’m ready for the big leagues.
Now that you have your list of online blogs you are ready to start contacting blog owners and asking them if they’re interested in having guest posters. In your e-mail explain that you have some great articles that would work great with their blog. Ask them to e-mail you back for more details. Not everyone will respond but those who do will be interested. I like to e-mail about three blog owners a day so I don’t get overwhelmed with responses. Make it a habit of doing this and you should be writing guest posts in no time. Just remember when you’re writing your post that you are offering really good content. The better the content the better the response you will get from the readers.
All of the methods above are very effective and will make you money, the one thing that has to be remembered is that if your blog is hosted somewhere else other than your server, you will have to be careful not to spam your site with ads.
Using relevant keywords is another important factor. Try to find some popular keywords for your niche. However, it’s important to avoid overusing the keywords. To achieve success with your online poker blogs you need to learn about search engine optimization. This will lead to a lot of targeted traffic. Remember that sometimes it’s not enough to write quality content. You also need to attract visitors. There are plenty free online tutorials you can read about SEO and keywords.
