How To Blog To Make Cash

How to Blog and Make Money

Blogging to make money online seems to have become the new online dream or pie in the sky job. Many people believe that you can type up a few words and add a new blog post every day and you will be rich. Why not, we have all seen those problogger sites where they went from being nobody to being blogger famous.

Before you start your new blog there are a few things to keep in mind about becoming a rich and famous blogger. Most of those pros took one year or longer at blogging to make any money from it. Sure you might be able to get a dollars here and there, but it will take time to get readers and page rank for your blog. If you don't know what page rank is - find out. If you are prepared to blog for the long haul and willing to do some blog promotion or spend money on advertising then go ahead and try blogging for cash.

You must learn to properly SEO your blog and get lots of traffic to your blog. There are many ways to get free blog traffic, but because it is free it more than likely means that you will have to do some work. You might have to write some articles and submit them. To get more traffic to your blog you should go to others blogs with a similar niche or theme and make relevant comments. There are also some good and free traffic exchanges out there, again you will need to work at this to get anywhere.

I tell you that you will need to work and blogging for cash will take time, not because I want to discourage you, but because I want you to know the truth. Most bloggers who want to make money with their blog will give up after just three months, if they make it that far they may again become bored or frustrated with no cash flow and give up after six months of blogging.

One way of persevering and making a lasting blog is to pick a niche that you will enjoy writing about day in and day out. Make sure you have many different topics in that niche to blog about. You will also need to ask yourself if enough people online will want to read what you are posting about. Then start your blog and post daily, seo it properly and get lots of traffic and you will be well on your way to making money online with a blog.

What are your Multiple Streams of Income?

Have you heard of Multiple Streams of Income? Making money online includes diversifying where your money is coming from. After years of being online I know that one thing is certain - everything changes. The Internet changes and grows daily, and a program that is making you money today might just be gone tomorrow.

Finding several different programs that make you cash is like diversifying your stocks. You should know not to put all of your eggs into one basket because if that basket disappears you are out of luck and out of money. Instead if you have several different streams of income if one goes away you won't be in dire straits. Likewise, having many or multiple streams of income means that each stream could be more of a trickle of money but together they all add up to a nice income.

Another thing to think of with your income is finding passive streams of income. If you have passive income that means you have to little to no additional work once you have set up this passive income stream. One example would be writing an ebook, uploading it to clickbank, writing a sales page and then letting clickbank affiliates sell your book for you. It would take initial work but once set up it would be mostly passive income.

If you want to take your passive income streams a step further you could set up a residual income stream. A residual stream would be an online money maker that requires a monthly fee to participate. This could be a forum that has several pro's posting or a monthly subscription to a members only informational website.

When setting up your multiple streams of income remember to diversify, diversify, diversify. Trying out new programs periodically can lead to new streams that might just end up being rivers and lakes of income.
