Make Money Blogging Using Nothing But Free Tools

I'm a huge fan of Google. With nothing but Google tools, you can quickly set up an entire online business of your own. What's presented here is intended to be a multiple use miniature business plan.

How much money can somebody make using this EXACT strategy? To be honest, I don't have an answer yet. Using this strategy and my own 9-step Internet marketing plan using free methods, I've created several test blogs to see how much money I can actually make with them. This whole methodology came about when my friend Sasha asked me to show her how to set up a very, very basic online business that wouldn't cost her any money. As a demonstration, I created my "Yoga & Pilates Lifestyle" blog while she sat right here and watched. On that first test run, it took about 90 minutes to get started.

From that first demonstration, here is a slightly more refined list of steps for you to get started making money blogging:

1. Define your niche. This needs to be something that you're genuinely interested in, since you'll be reading, writing, and otherwise dealing with it a LOT. Plus, this will be a hobby for a while until it starts to make money.

2. Do some research to make sure that your niche is narrow enough to be a true niche, but broad enough to have a good sized market.

3. Create a Google account. This is the launching point for all tools Google.

4. From your Google services page, create a Blogger blog. You'll need to pick a template, layout, color scheme, and all that jazz.

5. On the "Customize" page of Blogger, click on "Add A Page Element" and select an AdSense unit.

6. You will be walked through the process of creating your Google AdSense account.

7. Pick your ad options and put up ads. You can have up to 3 AdSense blocks on a page - see my sample yoga site above for suggested positioning.

8. Sign up for a account. Activate the features that feeds your blog content to other sites, and also enable the feature that allows people to subscribe to email updates.

9. Using the Blogger template editor, add the email subscription form as an element to your blog. See my sample yoga blog for suggested positioning.

10. Write articles for your blog. Cross post these articles to article directory sites to attract visitors.

11. If relevant and permitted for your site's category, post ads on Craigslist, Backpage, and Kijiji to advertise your new site.

12. Comment on related blogs, leaving a link back to your site.

13. Become an active participant in discussion boards, Yahoo Groups, Google Groups, etc., relevant to your blog, leaving links back to your site where permitted and appropriate.

14. Create YouTube videos relevant to your blog. Embed the video on your blog as content, and put a link the YouTube description field back to your site. YouTube is free, and also owned by Google!

15. Repeat steps 10 through 14 to maintain and grow your site.

There you have it. A fairly simple business plan that takes less than 2 hours to get up and running.
