Make Money With A Blog

Dec 25, 2007
A blog is essentially your own personal website that you can use as a vehicle for self-expression. You can communicate whatever your interests are to the entire world. It also gives you an opportunity to communicate and connect with others with the same interests as you.

A blog gives you an opportunity to offer content rich web pages. Since most people use the internet to obtain information, your blog will be a source of valuable information for your readers.

Two very important goals are accomplished by your blog. First, you get visitors that are interested in what you have to say. They will be more open to whatever you have to promote or introduce to them after reading and gaining value from your content rich blog pages. The second goal is that you will attract more attention from search engines. Gaining the attention of the search engines will translate into more targeted traffic to your site giving you a greater chance at promoting your product or service. And best of all, this increased traffic will be free.

Should you chose to use your blog for marketing purposes, you can write relevant and quality articles related to the products or services that you promote. Just be sure your main goal is to give your visitor exactly what they are looking for and that is information. Your goal of marketing your product or service is secondary.

Add an "About the Author" section or just include your name and a link to your website at the end of each blog post. If the reader is interested in obtaining more information they will click on your link. This will also help to increase the traffic to your website because of the links you are creating that point back to you. Also, add fresh content frequently such as articles or just some personal notes you would like to share with others about your experiences.

However, the blog itself can be used as your business website. There are people who use a blog to generate income and do not own another website. Instead they use information contained in their blog posts to promote affiliate programs and Google Adsense.

A blog works best when it is consistently updated with fresh content. If you find that you need help at times with adding content on your own, don't forget about the article writing services that are available to you.

You can sign up for a free blog at Google Blogger. However, if you want to use your website as your internet business website then you should find a blog that is designed for this purpose and will allow you more options and control over your blog.

The next thing you want to do is use Ping-O-Matic to submit your blog to a blog listing service. This helps the search engines find your blog. This is also a free service. Be sure to do this each time you update your blog.

A blog is an excellent tool that can be used to promote your business or even can be used as your main business. So get started on your blog today!
