It is not too difficult to earn money through blogging. All you need are some patience as well as a little know-how so as to get the blog ready to make money. However, you need to know that all advertisers you work for do not just give away money, they will want something in return, which is usually a share of your traffic or your Page rank.
So, how do you get started? Well read our series on setting up a blog if you need any help at all, or get in contact and we can set you a blog up for just £20 / $ 35 per year. Once your blog is live you need to work on it to make sure that it is producing what advertisers will want to buy from you.
For those interested in optimising their own website, they will be looking for blogs with plenty of backlinks and a good Page Rank. Article writing, guest posting, commenting and other tricks are all useful here. Again, read our starting a blog series if you need more help.
For advertisers wanting to spread the word of their site, or to create a buzz as it is often referred to, then they want blogs with plenty of traffic. The same tricks work as for Page Rank, but more targeted work is needed. Then commenting on forums and various other tricks, maybe even paid advertising, work well. Again, our series tells you more.
After that you need to find ways to earn money with your blog. Sponsored Posting, Pay Per Click advertising, banner advertising, affiliate work and a lot more tricks are possible. Certain methods work best for high Page Rank blogs whilst others work best with high traffic blogs. All will work well if you manage to get both traffic and Page Rank and Sponsored Posting works well on either, you just need to know which systems to sign up for.
The last way to earn money through blogging is simply by selling it, or by blog flipping. It seems extreme to sell your work, but that is what some people enjoy and if you are made a fantastic offer, then why not!
