Planning to start a successful blog that will make you money ?

Filed in eCommerce, Hosting and Domain Name, MakeBlog by on March 7, 2015 6 Comments

A successful and Popular blog with always need these 3 Components if you are in UK, Australia , US , Canada or any other country

  1. A good domain name
  2. A good hosting company
  3. And a Good Looking Design or WordPress theme.

Start a Successful blog  in 2016

You may ask Why these Three  – because a good short domain name is easy to remember, a good hosting company will always make sure your site is up with no server problems  and a good design will always install trust in viewers and help your blog look more professional and popular.

Getting the first two factors sorted out is pretty straightforward –  Just choose the right provider (I have provided a link to comparison of providers both hosting and domain names ). To get a good design  for your blog or website easily  the word press blogging software is a must as you can install a good paid design (wordpress theme) in minutes

Luckily most hosting providers already support wordpress blogging software.

When I say , word press is a must for good blog design, it is because it’s one of the most popular website /blogging software. It also  has one of the highest number of free designs available  to install in your blog in just a few clicks . The bonus is that there are also  a lot of  cheap yet professional designs available at affordable prices for wordpress blogs . It’s called wordpress skins – themes or templates.

Once you purchase a good design that suits your blog-subject , you can download that theme and  just click and upload it within your blog admin area  and your blog has a new good looking professional design. The entire website look or design is changed in an instant.

If you want to compare  this task – Changing the design and look of  you word press website and blog is as easy as changing  you dress if you want a comparison. You wear a nice looking dress/clothes and you look good and people  show appreciation  and want to talk to you, the same way you get a good word-press design theme and people will come to your blog because it looks good and professional . The difference is with wordpress  it takes a mere minute or less  to change a template design or theme to your wordpress blog ( and in real life changing your dress/shirt can probably take much longer 😉

Professional WordPress themes and templates  are available from prices as low as $69 for 80 + professional themes from some providers. WP themes  or templates are also available for free from within your  wordpress blog  in the admin area. Go to appearance once logged in and search for themes and just add them and  activate ( but I dont recommend  installing wordpress free themes if you are serious about blogging)

I remember I recently helped a friend set up a blog, and after 3 months he comes back and tells me that his blog is hardly getting like 4 to 5 visits a day. I checked his blog and saw that he had written only 4 short articles( 300 words) in those three months and had done no promotion of his blog. I explained to him that this was the reasons why he was not receiving more visits, make content at least 500 words minimum( if not longer) for each article , write at least 2 to 3 interesting articles each week  in the first couple of months with attractive relevant images in the posts and also promote the blog .

Within next three months he was close to 100 visits a day following my tips, which is pretty good for a new blog.

2016 and Making money from your blog 

Once you get the traffic rolling in , you can start to make money, because there is only one basic rule (traffic = Money).  Saying that  you need a decent amount of traffic to make money,  I have made money from blogs with  100 unique visits a day but to have a more consistent and reasonable income  to start with  you will at least need anywhere  from 400 to 500 visit s a day  depending on your niche.

So you ask how to make that money from your blog , they are 101 ways to make money from your blog  for eg . putting  google ads on your blog( adsense) , promoting  other products for a commission ( affiliate marketing), accepting sponsored posts  from companies  etc .

These are some of the more popular methods .but there are still many  more ways you can make money on-line. I will surely  cover  this on a detailed post later , to show you how to make money from your blog  but if your wanna get there the professional way  and quickly  maybe you can check out  this clickbank training course

Back to the main topic, once you have sorted out your domain, hosting and design the only thing you need on a regular basis is good content written to attract viewers to your blog and keep them coming back. To ensure that this is taken care of, make sure you start a blog on a topic that you are passionate about, so that you don’t get bored after a while. Once you start to make money from your blog (yes it’s possible) you can (outsource) the content writing if you are short on time.

After this is taken care of, you should get viewers visiting your blog as you add more interesting articles to your blog (install stat counter to measure visits /traffic). If traffic to your blog is not increasing you probably need to make it more visible on the internet, and you can do this by promoting your blog content through social media like Facebook, twitter and pinterest etc. and also researching how to do SEO for blogs on Google.

Here are some links  to  choose/compare the right providers for Blog  domain buying, Blog templates/Themes or design and  Hosting companies for blogs.
