Making Money With Your Blog

Aug 17, 2007
One Internet home business opportunity that's getting a load of attention lately is a blog. A blog is easy to set up, easy to run, quite a bit of fun, great marketing and a good way to make money selling advertising. Of course, a blog can also be a good Internet tool for marketing the home business opportunity but should be far more subtle than would be a banner ad or advertising on the home business site.

A blog, can however, be the Internet home business opportunity itself. The word blog is a derivation of the term Web log. A blog is essentially a journal that is displayed on the Internet. All it takes to add to the blog is log on, post the day's thoughts or activities and it's out there live.

Someone who wants to build a blog as an Internet home business opportunity obviously has to make it more revenue-based than that. The best way to do that is by using the blog audience as a market for someone else's business. In other words, selling advertising on the blog.

There is simple and inexpensive software that can help spread the word by advising other sites and search engines each time a change is made to the Internet home business opportunity blog.

However, most may not know is that a blog can also be a very powerful marketing tool for your business and some people actually earn an income just from blogging alone. Blogs are easy to maintain than Web sites because they are informal and conversational. Their volume is maintained, sometimes exponentially by encouraging others to comment or respond to postings.

A blog is much more "human" than a Web site, which invites and encourages conversation.

The best way to make money with a blog is through pay per click contextual advertising. The best known of these products is Google's Ad Sense. Google actually offers the ready made advertisers. The entrepreneur simply indicates the keywords and industry and Google does the rest. The way this works is that the ad links are placed on the blog site and any time someone goes to the blog and clicks on the ad links the advertiser pays Google and Google pays the blogger.

Affiliates are money makers as well. The home business opportunity is a two way street here generally, with the blogger placing a link to someone else's Web site on the blog and being paid for links but also placing his or her own link to the blog on the affiliate Web site and paying the affiliate for any link or revenue from the link.
