Thousands of people are looking for ways to make money online and although it sometimes sounds too good to be true it can actually be done. One of the most simple ways to make money online is by blogging and there are many people that are making a great income doing so.
You can blog about absolutely anything ranging from writing your own daily journals to writing about crafts, animals, cars or about blogging itself. There really is no limit to the topics that you can blog about. The income that bloggers make comes from the advertising that they place on the blog but it is not quite as easy as just writing blog posts and placing ads all over your blog. You do need to be strategic with the placement of your advertisements as you don't want your blog to look like one big advertising blog.
Too much blatant advertising will make your blog cheap and nasty and not at all professional looking. You want your advertising to be subtle and to blend with the site and with the topic of the site. So don't go advertising scrapbooking products if your site is about skateboards.
It is a good idea to get your blog up and running before even placing any advertising on it at all. Build up your reputation in your niche and establish some regular readers and then when you do recommend a product or two they are likely to trust your recommendations.
It is recommended to add an optin box to your blog so that you can build a subscriber list which is a great way to build a personal and trusting relationship with your readers. Once again though, when you send emails to your subscribers don't just send lots of emails trying to sell things. Send your subscribers emails with good quality content that they will enjoy reading and occasionally recommend a product to them through the emails.
Building a relationship with your readers and gaining their trust can take your blogging business to a whole new level. You will increase your sales by a large amount by building a list and building that relationship. Once you have customers that trust you then they will come back and possibly be repeat buyers for the products that you recommend.
It is also important when you do recommend products to your readers that you only recommend good value products. Look at it as if you were in their shoes as I'm sure you would hate to have someone recommending a product to you only for you to find out that it isn't worth the money you spend on it. To keep your subscribers trust so that they will be return buyers then it is important to only recommend good value products.
To sum it up, keep you blog interesting, tidy and of good value and you should become quite successful at making money by blogging. Remember to build a list and build a relationship with your subscribers and your sales will go through the roof.
