What Is Blogging and How Do You Do It?
Before talking about making money blogging online you need to know what is a blog. Do you agree with me?

According to WordPress.org “Blog” is a short-term for Weblog. The key feature of a blog is like a diary-type commentary and links to articles on other websites, like a list of posts in reverse chronological order.
In today’s world, you will find that lot of people start blogging about what they are passionate about, which could be a hobby, web design, home staging, sports, mobile technology, etc.

Create a Website under 30 Second…. I will show you how
Blog Quality Content
Do you know how you can leverage search engines and get mad traffic to your site? Here is the answer: “Quality Content”.
[stextbox id=’info’]Google, BING, & Yahoo LOVE Content![/stextbox]
The most important thing that you have to remember when building your content is that you have to build it with your audience in mind. Real people are reading this content so you want to deliver something that is relevant and interesting. Keep in mind that you are writing for them, not for the Search Engines 🙂
Content needs to be readable. People don’t like to read “novels” of content anymore, therefore keep your ideas short, with a small paragraph.
Remember this: You want people to engage in your content so they can convert and this is when you start getting revenue.
Here are 6 things that make up a quality page or post:
(1) Smaller paragraphs
(2) Separate your ideas with HEADING tabs (h3 or h4)
(3) Black or dark grey text on white background
(4) Use conversational speak
(5) Use a captivating headline
(6) Use relevant images
And the most important thing of all, Write in a natural way, just write as you were talking to your audience!
Before moving forward I would like to talk to you about Affiliate and Earnings Disclaimer.
I have received many inquiries from people asking about “Affiliate and Earnings Disclaimer” and “do I need them”.
The answer is yes you do need them and not only that if you are an affiliate the FTC requires you have it on your site.
Where do you find them? Very easy… I have an Affiliate and Earnings Disclaimer on my site that you can copy – Simply add your salutation at the end; if needed change or add the word “We” where applicable. Click here to copy the link.
Amazon Affiliate Disclosure Policy
If you are planning to sign up for an Amazon Associates Account (Amazon does refer to Affiliate as Associates) you will want to add their disclaimer as well:
Amazon is looking for a proper disclosure as outlined in Amazon’s affiliate disclosure policy. This is different than what the FTC looks for. Personally I thought I was safe with my Affiliate and Earnings Disclaimer page required by the FTC. WRONG. Amazon is looking for a specific Amazon Associates statement.
It must read as follow and place on your site:
Make sure it is in a visible location too!
[stextbox id=’grey’][Insert your name] is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to [insert the applicable site name (amazon.com or myhabit.com)].[/stextbox]
Amazon will revoke access to a blogger’s affiliate account if you do not comply with their Affiliate Program Disclosure. Better be safe than sorry don’t you think?
Make Money Blogging Online
Let me tell you a very important thing about Make Money Blogging Online, the make money part of your business won’t happen quite yet. First things first! You will have to focus on creating your niche website.
Make sense right? Before you earn money, you are going to first be focusing on creating your niche website to get traffic to your site.

A Foundation? What is that?

[stextbox id=’grey’]1. Who is your customer
2. What problem are you solving for them[/stextbox]
Monetize Your Blog
Affiliate Marketing is a good way to monetize your blog. When you sign up with Affiliate Marketing businesses that are relevant to your site you will be getting links, banners that you put on your blog-site. Every time a visitor makes a purchase from that Affiliate link you will get a commission.
Affiliate marketing is by far the best way to make a living online!
Selling Products on eCommerce Websites
You can open a Shopify Store and sell products by linking your store to your blog. Selling your products in many places should be every bit as simple as selling in one. With Shopify’s eCommerce software, you get one unified platform to run your business with ease.
CPC or CPM Ads
One of the most popular ways Bloggers make money with their blog is through placing ads on their blog-site.
Here are the 2 most popular ads:
1- Pay-Per-Click (PPC) also known as Cost-Per-Click (CPC): Most of the time it is referred to as banners that you place in your content. Then each time a visitor clicks on the ad you get paid for that click.
2- Cost per 1,000 impressions Ads Also known as CPM Ads: Those ads pay you a fixed amount of money based on how many people view your ad.
Google Adsense would be a perfect example of this type of ad.
Sell Digital Products
Another way to monetize your blog is by selling digital products. Here some example of Digital Products:
- Online courses/workshops
- Music, Video, Images
- Apps, plugins, or themes
There are lots of things you can do to generate money with blogging. Those are just to give you a quick overview.
Always make sure that they are useful and relevant to your visitors. Like if you are blogging about Healthy Cooking and you are selling Cars digital eBooks..relevant to your site.
You see the picture now?
Engage with your visitors, listen to their needs then you can create a digital product for their needs.
