From this series: 8 Steps For Making Money From Internet Using Affiliate Marketing
Let’s go through those 8 simple steps for making money using blogs.
Step 1: What is a Blog & your Topic?
To understand, blogs are like dairy where you could write articles on any topic that you love.
Choose a blog topic from your own personal experience like fashion, technology, programming, gadgets etc.
I am interested about “blogging” and I am writing about it here in BlashO.
Good, if you are focusing as a niche blog.
Step 2: Where to start?
The best way to create a blog self-hosted using WordPress.
You have to spend a little money for choosing a webhosting provider.
WordPress is open source & it keeps your blog/articles safer when you self-host it.
You won’t loose your hard work like me.
Step 3: How To Name Your Blog?
Yes, you are going to be the owner of a dot com.
The name of your blog should reflect your blog topic or brand.
Find a domain name with keyword or a catchy brand name like me, BlashO.com.
It’s all your own interest and what type of domain name you (+others) love.
Step 4: Decide Your Blog Title.
The most important step in starting a blog is deciding the Title.
Write a great catchy title and to use keywords in that Title.
For example, if you are writing about personality development then a good title looks like, “Personality Development Tips To Develop Your Personality” and the title tells the abstract of your blog.
It has keywords “Personality Development Tips”, “Develop your Personality” and your blog will be shown on search engines for those keywords.
Learn how to find keywords and use it in your blog.
Step 5: List Down Blog Categories.
Once your blog is ready, you have to decide on the categories.
Basically, categories are sub-topics. Listing down the categories may help you to scope your blogging topic within the limits and helps you to stay focused on it.
It is always important in blogging that you should not go out of you topic in order to build an information rich blog.
This also helps you to work towards your blogging goals.
Step 6: Write Articles Consistently.
Consistency is the key factor in blogging.
You should write useful articles on the topic always.
In general, useful articles solves reader problems like “how to”, “tips to”, “list of”, “steps to” are kind of useful articles.
See my archives, how I am writing. I don’t write if I don’t find anything useful to write.
Make writing as a habit in your life. Keep on creating useful stuff.

Step 7: Promote Your Blog & Drive Traffic.
Once your blog has useful information, people will come to your blog via search engines.
This won’t happen naturally because search engines are automated software & less intelligent than humans.
You have to optimize your blog posts for search engines (SEO) so that it could understand your blog well.
Integrate Google Analytics to your blog to see the number of visitors coming to your blog & analyze the traffic.
Step 8: Making Money From Blogs.
Make sure your blog gets enough visitors every day.
You can monetize your new blog from day one.
Blogging is not simple.
It requires hard work, patience & consistency.
Take blogging as a business and write useful articles on the topic as much as possible. Definitely, your blog grows and makes money for you in near future.
Be patience and keep working.
