The Idiot’s Step-By-Step Guide To Blogging for Profit

Blogging is easy, blogging is fun. And what’s more…it can help your business in a lot of
ways. A blog is a frequent, chronological publication of personal thoughts and web links in
the cyberspace. You could call it an e-diary where you can register your thoughts, opinion
and comments on anything and everything under the sun that interests you. Though
people had been ‘at it’ long before the term blog was coined; it has gained currency as an
effective medium of communicating over the Internet only recently. The introduction of
automated published software like “Blogger” at www.blogger.com has been instrumental
in blogging success. A blog or a weblog’ is conceptually similar to a website and is
accessible to anyone on the Internet.

There are millions of bloggers in the world today blogging away to glory. But blogging can
be more than just chatter in the cyberspace. It can be a great tool for boosting your
online business’s profitability once you’ve understood how it works and what are its
limitations. Take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weblog#Corporate for some more
information.

Guidelines for the greenhorn blogger

Here are some simple guidelines for a newbie blogger. Take a chance with these to
increase your chances of success.


1. Get Blogging: Like I said earlier, the best way to learn blogging is to start
blogging.

2. Recognize your motivation: Why are you blogging? What do you hope to
achieve?

3. Link to other blogs: the best way to popularise your blog is to link to other
blogs. So link you must!

4. Develop a unique style of writing: Developing a writing style is an
evolutionary process. Try different approaches and formats until you find one that
fits your message, audience, and personal motivations.

5. Express your personality... let your humour, your perspective on life, and your
values shine in your writing.

6. Be regular with your posting: readers will quickly wander away from blogs
that are not updated regularly. So this is very important.

How to profit from Blogging?

Now that you have understood what a blog is and how to get blogging, its time to make it
pay. Blogging is a great way to enhance your online company’s bottomline. It is a popular
and an easy medium and has potential of reaching millions.

Here are some tips for you to turn blogging into a serious profitable strategy.

1.Customer Interaction: A blog is a good means to keep in touch with your customers
regularly. You can keep them updated on new events, happening in your company, new
products and services and other developments. the best part is that you can do it more
cost effectively and in much less time than other methods like newsletters, customer
updates and customer meetings. The elements of interactivity, community and
collaboration are key here. Your blog can also serve as a platform for advertising,
promotion and even internal communications. One well-known business example is
software company Macromedia's use of blogging to keep customers updated on what's
happening with its products.

2.Query management: With a blog you can receive and answer to customer queries
more quickly than an email. For potential customers it is very important to have a sharp
turnaround and you can do that easily with a blog.

3.Link to other sites: Linking your blog to other similar, but not competing, sites is a
great way to get some free publicity and traffic for your online business. It is also one big
reason why Search Engines will grab your site in their result pages. Ask any online
entrepreneur what getting quality traffic to a website means and you’ll know what I am
talking about.

4.Get Feedback: Getting feedback from your customers on your products and services,
on your company practices and other things is one of the most valuable resources you
can build. With a blog, it is not just easier but also time saving for customers to leave
feedback for you without filling complicated and mile long forms.

5.Get Google to work for you: Selling ad space is one of the most popular revenue
streams for online businesses. With Google’s free AdSense service it just got easier
www.google.com/adsense. AdSense allows bloggers to display up to three contentspecific
"ad units" (boxes that can hold up to four ads each) per page. Each time a visitor
clicks these ads, you get paid. Need more convincing?

6.Become an affiliate: Your blog can become a cash cow by using the simple idea of
becoming an affiliate for other websites. An affiliate basically carries a link to the other
site and each time some one clicks on that link, you get a small commission for it.

7.Donations: If you are running a blog that people love to read and keep coming back in
hordes, why not ask them for some monetary appreciation?
Put on your thinking cap and let your imagination run unbridled. You will surprise yourself
with the number of ideas that will make your blog less of a personal e-diary and more of
a digital cash cow. Blogging is a relatively new marketing arena for webpreneurs, but has
immense possibility and potential. Be sure to get on to the bandwagon early in the game
and reap your benefits later.

You can make $20 for a 20 minute survey!

Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying for. They need to know what their customer needs and wants. So large companies pay $1,000,000's of dollars per month to the average person. In return, the average person, like myself, answers some questions and gives them their opinion.
