How to Make Money From Home With a Simple Blog

I’m sure you might already have an idea what a blog is. But if by some chance you don’t I’ll explain: A blog is basically a diary on the Internet. It’s a place you can post all your thoughts, ideas, views and recommendations onto the Internet very easily, for everyone and anyone to read.

Today, everybody wants to connect with everyone else and share thoughts, ideas and news online . And blogging is an easy and established way to do that (much easier than newer methods like Facebook and Twitter I think). And it’s a great way to make money fast too.

But there’s much more to blogging than just a diary. Because blogging is a way of getting a presence on the Internet… without the trouble and expense of setting up your own website. And then generating lots and lots of valuable traffic… which you can go on to generate an income for yourself and earn extra money.

Lately, it seems like everyone has something to say online and many people are expressing themselves through blogging. With so much content to read online, it can be frustrating trying to draw people in to read yours. Business blogging is a great way to connect with potential and current customers. However, if you don’t know how to market your blog, all of the time you’ve spent writing great content will be wasted. Follow these business blog marketing tips in order to lure potential readers to your blog.

1. Update your blog as often as possible. It’s important to stay consistent with how often you post in your blog. The reason for this is because your readers will get in the habit of checking your blog every few days for new content. If you post three times a week throughout August then only post once in September, your readers will suspect that you aren’t serious about providing them with quality information and stop returning to the site. Also, if you aren’t posting regularly, your content won’t be the most current, up-to-date content possible and who wants to read outdated material? Your best bet is to post every other day, once a week or even bi-weekly. However you decide to do it, just make sure it’s consistent so when your readers visit your blog expecting a new post, they won’t find themselves empty handed.

2. Use links as much as possible. One main trait that separates online writing such as blogging from print writing is that you can use links to point your readers in the direction of even more information about your topic. Linking to pages on your website (or even outside sources) in your blog entries shows readers that you care about whether they get the most information possible about the subject. If you can find current news stories or articles about your subject and link to them in your entries, people will begin to rely on you as a new source for that particular topic. When you link to other articles or websites (not competitors) that you think your readers will find interesting or relevant, you’re building trust. This is important to create customer loyalty as well as to turn your customers into advocates for your product (i.e. people who suggest your product to others). Bloggers will often summarize someone else’s article or blog. This is allowed as long as you link to the original source to avoid plagiarism problems.
