|So you ask yourself where do I go to blog for money. This is actually a good question even if there is no definitive answer.
Starting A Blog For Money.
Starting a blog is difficult enough let alone expecting to profit from it.
The advice I seem to hear the most is find your niche and go to a forum or blog site that is all about what you want to do. Probably the best advice you can get.
The reason for doing this is that the people on this site you know for sure are interested in what you’re doing.
The first thing you need to do after deciding what you want to blog about is figure out where you’re going to get your traffic,the people to read your blog.
Unless you’re paying for traffic you’ll have to get your visitors from social media.
You can create status posts that will hook your followers to click the link to your latest blog article.
Do this with your personal Facebook account and Business page (or Blog page) if you have one. I recommend you do.
Optimal Posting Time: 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Visuals are crucial with Facebook…effective research will lead you to the perfect visual for your ad. Another great way to drive traffic to your blog.
WordPress has a set up where your newly published articles go straight to your Twitter account as well. If you have lots of Twitter followers, this can be an amazing source of traffic. And don’t forget to include Twitter share buttons for each article!
Optimal Posting Time: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
This is a new opportunity now available on Twitter.
Yes, Pinterest is visual, but remember that blogs with great content include awesome visuals in that content—photos, infographics, illustrations, logos—all useful visuals on your blog make excellent marketing opportunities…
just create a delicious smorgasbord of boards with your Pinterest profile, then pin the images from your blog onto your boards.
Each one will contain a link to your blog.
Optimal Posting Time: 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. & 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Pinterest sharing boards
Pinterest really is heaven for visually oriented people. But readers use it too.
As a blogger, start making connections on Pinterest, share other people’s content…you know, practice all the same effective engagement skills you use on other platforms…don’t just self-promote all the time.
That way, people here will send you invites to join groups. This provides you the opportunity to pin blog links to these group boards.
“Pin-it to Pinterest” CTA (Call to Action)
Don’t be shy about creating an occasional visual that has a CTA for sharing your published articles directly on THEIR Pinterest Profile.
Niche audience contacts love to do this when your blog has stellar content they eat up.
Now, here are a few other effective (and free!) ways to promote your blog!
Quick blogging tip: Network like a boss on LinkedIn and share your articles in the newsfeed.
This can really be a great platform if your blog is related to your career, but don’t rule LinkedIn out if your blog doesn’t cover your career.
Consider how your web writing and blogging skills are being demonstrated to an audience that can appreciate your skills.
Optimal Posting Time: 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Participate in forums where most other members have a need that your blog meets, or an answer to their questions.
By contributing useful information to the forum, people will want to to click on your signature to learn more about you. Bam! Your link takes them to the blog.
Usually you can promote your newest article in the signature of every post you create on the forum, at least 5 times a day for effective promotion.
Pick some other blogs that relate well to your blog. In other words, you want to leave comments on blogs who share a similar audience to your own blog.
If you go beyond the lazy comments like “Nice article, Bob!” and leave thought provoking comments, this can work to bring your blog traffic.
The closer your relationship to the blog owner, the better your chances here.
Unfortunately, not all bloggers are secure in themselves and have a generous spirit.
Don’t be shocked if an associate blogger you don’t know personally doesn’t allow your link to post, or worse, doesn’t approve your comment. This is rare but possible.
Coming up with something everybody else isn’t using can be trying. But if you do you will be assured of gathering a following that can be converted to customers.
Anybody with a fresh outlook on a subject can influence others to be persuaded by his ingenuity.
