3 Steps To Profiting From Blogging

Blogs can be a very marketable and very profitable tool if used correctly. 

Profiting from blogs is just a matter of grabbing the attention of an audience and not doing any actual salesmen selling.

1) Where to start?


You should begin your blog with a free blog hosting service, A free blog host is very rewarding for a new blog. 


Starting with a free blog hosting service allows you to begin blogging instantly without having any advance knowledge of scripts, hosting, or programming.


 It allows you to build an audience and buzz for your blog. It allows you to focus on your content and not the internal maintenance of the blog. 



The best benefit of starting with a free service, is in the case your blog doesn't become successful you do not lose any money or are you left holding the bill.


 The great thing about a blog is that they are organized in chronological order, your latest entry is displayed first. 



When your blog traffic grows greatly and you are ready to upgrade to your own domain then you can simply make your last blog entry the announcement of your "move". 


Simply add a last entry stating that your blog has "moved" and type the new blog URL address.


 Which directs visitors to your new blog site, keeping your following, without a major inconvenience to anyone. 


Upgrade as you need to...but only when you need to!

2) Niche


A niche is a targeted product, service, or topic. You should first decide on a product, service, or topic which interest you. 


Choose an area which you can enthusiastically write about on a daily basis. You can use keyword research services like Google or Yahoo! Buzz Index to find popular searched topics.  

It does NOT matter if your topic is popular as long as there is a audience for your topic and the topic is precisely focused then your blog should be successful. 

Anything can be considered a niche as long as it has a target audience no matter how large or how small the audience is.

 A blog about your cat can be a niche or a blog about the species of the cat family can be a larger niche market.

 if there are people who are interested in hearing about your cat or the species of the cat family, then you have a niche...you can even choose to build your audience for a market which an audience does not exist, but first you must build your blog.

3) Update Daily or Weekly (nothing less)


This step is a must and not a suggestion. Updating your blog daily not only keeps your blog more interesting to readers, but it also gives your blog fresh content on a day to day making it more appealing to search engines. 


Not updating your blog on an occasional holiday or one day here and there is understandable to most, but missing days at a time or weeks is unacceptable and will most likely result in your blog being unsuccessful.

To keep your blog traffic and retain your visitors interest it is a must to update your blog daily with multiple entries. 

Though, I am seeing a growing trend of successful blogs that are not being updated daily, but they are successful and have a stable audience who continue to visit their blog daily. 

Regardless, these blogs are still updated weekly with multiple entries. Until you have a steady audience you should try to update your blog everyday with at least 3 or more daily entries. 

The best way to accomplish this is to set aside 1-2 hours a day for tending to your blog and adding new entries. It may even be wise to schedule a set time which you dedicate to your blog each day. 

Give yourself work hours and treat your blog as a job, what happens if you don't come to work for days or weeks...you lose money or worse you get fired! 

Same applies here...if you don't update your blog for days or weeks you'll lose visitors.
