Hey, everyone how is everybody doing? I hope your all going well. One thing I like to do is to tell my readers that I hope they are doing good, and this actually has a lot to do with technology. The fact that the internet is picking up so much and blogging is becoming so big it’s a really great way to escape any pressure you have with your employment.
Whether you are employed or not I recommend many people build their personal online websites. It’s easy, just choose a domain name, pick a theme (in WordPress), and update your blog once a day. You will find that after doing this for 12 months, you will have so that much traffic that your world becomes equivalent to owning your own money. Do money trees exist? They do when you have your own blog scroll.
Before we get started I must inform you. Before I created this post, I actually looked at the competing websites. You wouldn’t believe what I saw. To understand what I’m about to say, you must first know that I’m an affiliate of the world’s No. 1 website building & affiliate training in the world. With this in mind, my aim was to actually show you how to start blogging and make money and not just show you how to get confused. See where I’m going? As I just read the other blogs for the first page ranking in Google, I saw that those posts do not help people in the slightest, and to understand why you need to know that there’s only one training platform in the world that can do what we are talking about. In other words; your right, they are just blogging for money. They are just showing some of the many steps it took them to get started. You got to know that before the Wealthy Affiliate training came out, building websites was not an easy task. They way some of their blogs are many years old, they surely need to update them. The world is advancing and it’s too obvious now have old confusing information on the internet about how to blog for money when there’s no way unless you are taught by experienced entrepreneurs.
I hope you get what I have tried to say.
In saying all of that, I want to show now how to build a blog in the new age way and make money.
Why you should start a blog
There are one reason and one reason only why starting a blog with a WordPress theme in affiliate marketing is the way to go. You earn money simply by promoting other people’s products. Think about the way business all over the world run. Usually you would have to work for years building your brand and establishment. In affiliate marketing you are promoting business and services and their products that are all ready to go. Unlike them (who spent years building) you just need a website, hosting, and a business name. Find out how and where to start this in this industry throughout this post.
How to start a blog for money
To make money with your blog, you will first need to start devising a long-term content management and strategy system that you will be able to update and focus on during your blog’s creation. Building a website is not easy. It’s hard. The last thing you want is having no right direction or training. There are many blogs out there that tell you what to do but when performing the real work it’s a different story.
Here’s what you need in short before we go through each step:
- Find the right affiliate training for you
- Learn what it means to make money online
- Choose a niche and a topic that you are focused on
- Start the construction of your website (build and name your website)
- Set up your WordPress website back end (Installing WordPress)
- Make your website SEO ready (Submitting XML sitemaps)
- Create your initial website content (About Me page & Privacy page)
- Create Custom menus for your website (Customers Navigation)
- Learn what keywords are (Content Creation)
The list above is a direct guide to creating your website and making money online. This part is just doing the foundation of your online business and doesn’t show you about joining affiliate programs just yet, more on that later.
Other ways to make money online
- Advertising income – advertising income is when you sell the space on your online business. After you have built a strong foundation to your website, you will find many advertisers sometimes asking you if you have any available space for them. If you want to make money selling your site Wide areas this can prove to be quite lucrative if you have a strong audience.
- Events – Events are something that many bloggers can do. This is when you want to run events and dates from your website and appear at the functions. You can make money by charging the audience (blogger’s readers) to attend and hear their favorite bloggers speak.
- Affiliate Income – this is something that most make money online with. To explain what it is, you build a blog website, give it a name, and sign up to ecommerce websites and offer to help promote their inventory. In this, you earn commissions every time someone buys from your links.
- Promoting a brick and mortar business – as a small business, if you have a website established you can bring to your land business many more customers by having an online version of your business. This increases overall company growth and revenue. I always promote the fact that a good deal of land based companies are now able to easily build a website and completely transform their business into the new age online world.
- Products – With this you are able to sell any books and courses that you create. After your website is built and your content is running smoothly, many bloggers start building courses and ebooks that either further promote their businesses or just help their customers in general.
- Recurring income – With this, bloggers can make money with selling products but more with memberships and programs (sometimes called continuity programs or membership programs). Readers will pay their monthly subscription fee and be able to access the member’s areas of any tools and online training.
- Services – A common way that bloggers make money is through offering services to their readers. These services can be coaching, mentoring, design, or copyrighting.
- Other income streams – Other forms of ways to make money blogging are of course selling blogs. There is also syndicating content, and donating which is also done through blogging.
Where to start blogging for money
When starting a blog you need to be able to think of what you like. A niche is a space in the market that you focus on specifically. Obviously you can choose something that is quite common or you can choose something that is not as common.
For example, the word travel is one of that bigger spaces to get into. The travel niche is so broad and compact because of the hotels in the world that people own. If you own a hotel you will most likely rank the highest for that. The Google algorithm is very good at working out who your site is and where it should be ranked.
The two most important things that you need when starting out is a domain name and web hosting. A web host is an online service that holds your website, it’s like a website back end home. Your domain URL is your website’s front end home address, and this is what people will recognize you for.
I’m about to show you how to build and where to build your website right now. In the following training, you will have the opportunity to build two websites. It’s important for you to know this so that if you make some mistakes with the site that you want to build, you will still have your second site. Making mistakes all the time is something that often happens when creating your website and making money. That’s why it is most important that you have experienced help right beside you.
For beginners, this can be very exciting. With that in hand, you want to get your site built as quick as possible because all you want to do is start getting traffic (earning money). This is very important because moving forward you will be able to build your site as fast as you want or as slow as you want.
1. Method 1 Getting Rolling
Most online training does not offer a platform where you can personally meet the owners. This is very important because if you build a WordPress website you are putting your online business on the internet, and that is not a small mission. The current population is 7.676 billion and over 4.388 (57%) billion use the internet to find and buy things that they need.
Those calculations are very important moving forward. What this means is that your website is going to be shown to that many people potentially (depending on how much you blog).
Building a website, you will need to know these 4 main principles and they are:
- Anyone can accomplish success online
- Anything NEW can ‘appear’ to be overwhelming at first
- No technical or prior online business experienced required
- Success is a journey
Knowing the four elements to success above are crucially important when starting your online business, and especially when trying to earn money. These 4 points will become very useful as we continue.
In the picture above you can see the four-step elements phase which is the critical step to building your blog and earning money. Let’s go through what they are below:
Step 1: Choosing your interest. What do you think would suit your personality? You may have this all sorted, because many people do. Many people Speer straight into the training and get so excited when they see it that they just remember what it is they like and have wanted to expand on for many months or maybe even years.
Step 2. Building your website is a step that has not been always this easy. Now, building your website takes a matter of seconds. It hasn’t been always like this, Kyle (Co-Founder) explains during the training that it used to take him no less than 30 days. That’s how lucky you are now that you can choose to accept this training and jump straight in. If you want to watch the video on building the website just click here.
Step 3. Attracting your visitors is what we all want to have done fast. How big do you think it would be having your own website attracts many customers. Now, don’t get the meaning of that phrase wrong. It’s more like a click from the search engine. When people are searching through the results they choose what is appropriate to them. When these people come into your website, you are then at their host. They are you customers, and if you want to build a huge online audience then help your customers with whatever they need. This traffic is free. You do not need to worry about spending money on any ads. There is nothing better than ranking your online business in the Search engines and getting hundreds, thousands, or millions of visitors come to your site. Just imagine all that money – more on that next.
Step 4. Earning revenue is why you came this far. This is the final step to building out your blog and being seen on Google. In this training, you learn there are over 50 different ways to monetize your site. There are over 550 million products and services all at your feet. Promoting all this as an affiliate is one of the most lucrative jobs in the world.
2. Learn how the make money online process works
The Make Money Online is a proven method that millions of affiliates do each year. This lesson goes into depth about how many people are online and how well you can make a huge fortune out of them. Do you ever wonder how the internet works? Think about all the web pages you land on. Each page that you land on is not just a web page. Although each page is their own online business it all works as being affiliates. An online business may promote their own products, but if they don’t update their blog, they won’t get much traffic. So in saying that when they update their blog they end up becoming an affiliate because it’s the whole point of blogging. If your business isn’t making money as an affiliate, you are letting money go down the drain.
This lesson asks you to stop for a moment and work out how much money you want to earn. To build your blog and earn money, it is very important that your learn about how much money you want to make.
You need to answer three main questions moving forward to ensure you’re moving in the right direction. They next three questions in this training are:
- How much would you be happy earning?
- How much would you be ecstatic earning?
- How much time are you willing to invest to achieve your goals?
This lesson provides an awesome value. Just look at the way it goes through how much you want to earn helping you document how much you will earn.
3. Choose your niche
This is considered as one of the most exciting parts to building your website. As I mentioned earlier, some people just jump straight in and already know what they want to do. Others have no idea and rely heavily on this training.
There are niches and domains that have been chosen a lot by other affiliates and business owners. Now, this whole thing works by content creation. I’m not saying not to pick a niche in the travel space because it so broad, instead I’m showing you how to think of other names and spaces that you can own the space a lot easier. This is totally up to you. I mean, you could make a post article, and rank page one. It all comes down to ranking your content titles.
Another huge aspect to look at when choosing a niche is who’s in that space. What sort of people follow that space. This is sport huge effects of how much they read and contribute to your online business. Take a sock’s niche for example: who do you think will enjoy reading this for an online business? I could imagine this site space as being something that is specifically for earning money and not so much for your desires and interests. Remember, you need to be very content with what you choose because it will help the blogging part of the content creation.
Look at the following examples of what takes place inside a niche:
- You will be writing content within your niche
- You will be communicating with people within your niche
- You will choose products to promote from within your niche
- You will have the chance to help people within your niche
- Your first niche probably won’t be your last
- Any single-niche website can become a full-time income and online business
In this platform it is the part where your are offered to change your decisions if you don’t know what niche to go for. You can actually promote WA and build a niche website in the Make Money Online space (MMO). Just like in this lesson, if you want to go and promote WA then take this link here, and I’ll see you on the inside.
4. Build your website
Now, with everything prepared for your niche, it’s time to build your website. This website gets made with a state of the art website builder. In this platform Kyle has made mention that they have spent 10s of millions on this tool. Unlike all other website building trainings this platform has a way that you can put your website together using the one place. It is vital that when building a website you start where you don’t have to go anywhere else.
I was mentioning earlier that many other posts online that claim to show you how to build a website-use techniques that no beginner could follow. There’s just too much time in this life up until now that no one else has a site builder. All other blog posts want you to go to a third-party platform and use some cheap hosting, but to me, I don’t think that’s really good enough for something so serious.
There are 4 tasks that take place in this section and they are:
- Build your website
- Choose your domain name
- Choose a website name
- Choose a design
You need state of the art hosting for your website: SiteRubix hosting service. They offer the following:
- Site Manager
- Site Content
- Site Builder
- Site Domains
If you read the list above you will notice that it contains very important things that you need to build a blog. The Site Manager is what manager your whole website and website health. The picture below is what it looks like within this platform hosting system:
This and nothing less is what determines your online success. If you see someone build a site without using this, it means they have done so over many many years. People can not always find this training, and this is a very important thing. You have to be given this training. You have to be given it because if you get it then you are like one step away from earning millions of dollars and having your own online business all in one place.
To build a website is easy, what’s hard is making money online. To build your website and make money so you need so many elements put together, and if you can build your website is the click of a button it will help you move on to the next thing a lot quicker.
Exclusive technologies are all things that will make your site run faster, and if you choose the right path you will obtain it. SiteRubix Hosting has made sure your site is built powerful with the following:
- Site Speed
- Site Protect
- Site SSL
- Site Comments
- Site Feedback
- Site Support
When building your site the next thing you need is web protection. I would go through what the service offers of wherever you intend on building your site and making sure they protect against the following:
- All forms of enormous attacks
Your site must be monitored by very expensive and powerful software once it’s built. You can do all that by moving forward in this post.
5. Set your website up with WordPress.org
WordPress has two versions. One is a lot better than the other, I mean, if your going to blog it’s not for no reason. People could be blogging on free platforms such as WordPress.com and earning no money all because they don’t receive the correct training. WordPress.org allows you to build your own blog that you control. WordPress.com does not allow that, instead they own the blog scroll.
I only recommend building your website with WordPress.org because it allows you to own your blog.
Setting up your WordPress website is going to be difficult without guidance. I mean, think about how hard it was using a computer for the first time when you started. In turn, setting up WordPress will be challenging on your own. I work alongside you showing you how to set up your WordPress website throughout this training.
What are plugins?
Plugins are another part that works with WordPress. They are technologies that enable you to add elements to your website to make it bigger and better. Without plugins you would just have WordPress the way it is.
Plugins are very important for your website moving forward. The beauty about building a WordPress.org website is that you can choose what plugins you want for your site. You, here, build your website the way you desire. In the lesson above you are also shown how to install the plugins that we use to make sites rank in Google 10 times better than without. Without plugins you would need to spend thousands on a professional programmer to come and build your website.
You see, Google doesn’t see you as being someone who knows about HTML. Google thinks that if someone wants to build a website, they build it like professional programmers knowing HTML. It is those programmers who over time made it easy by building plugins so that other ordinary people can start their own website without needing any experience whatsoever.
6. Use Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to make your site ready for search engines
Now you need to make sure your website can be found in the top search engines. What would you do without this training? This is what many people teach on their blog posts except they leave out all this important stuff. This is why I say the internet and SEO is far ahead of its time and that if you’re reading this then you have just struck a gold mine.
What is SEO?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. The meaning sounds pretty self-explanatory would say? SEO is getting your website ready for many different things, which are equally important as building your site.
SEO allows customers to be able to read you the title post in the search results. Without this you website probably wouldn’t get indexed. Normally, people would need to pay thousands of dollars for an SEO technician to do it all for them. If you wanted to do it, you would have to get some basic lessons on how to add it to your HTML.
But now we have plugins.
So that your website is findable and your customers can read your website’s bio and posts titles you need to install the All In One SEO plugin and then write what your website is about. The only page that is ready at this point in time is your home page so this what you will be doing.
After your home page is done, this same plugin will be used for each separate post that you use. You will find using WordPress that in the editor, down the bottom of your blog post is the SEO section. This is where you create a spellbound title for your posts and give them a description.
7. Create the first two pages on your website
The first two pages of any website is the About Me page and the Privacy page. Whenever a new website gets build these are always the first two pages that they add to the site.
The reason why is because they are very important. Websites are all about other people. If someone lands on your website they first need to know that they have rights. These rights are added to your site in a clear spot where your audience can read and relate when they see fit.
The other important post is your About Me post and this is very straight forward. Whenever all online businesses are formed, they are made with the intent of being something for people. So in turn, you need to make the page that explains what the site is about.
If the site is about you then simply find some fun and welcoming information that you can add. When people start coming to your site they will be able to read this page and get a clear understanding about who you are.
All your website content is being built with WordPress. If you are going to follow this training, WA have their own writing platform built into the WA platform which allows you to publish posts straight to Google and WordPress. You can then follow the published post straight into the WordPress back end to finish editing.
8. Build your website navigation (main menus)
For a website to have good customer navigation you need to build a main menu structure. This can be done is clear and concise way, if you’re using WordPress. Again, WordPress is the best platform for building websites and blogging.
In the back end of your website is the main editor where you can choose many options for your website. The main menu is to your left of the screen. Check out the pictures below:
In the pictures above you need to look at and copy in order to construct your own menus. I also offer free coaching if you feel you need more help. These menus are ‘custom menus’ which means you are creating them to fit what your site is about.
Without proper menu structure in your website people simply won’t bother. If people don’t have a clear and concise way to be able to achieve something on your website they will simply go elsewhere, and this is not what you want in the creation process. By all means you can have a website only half built by Wix but that won’t do anything accept destroy your brand. If you make a comeback over time people will still remember your site as being something that just wasn’t up to scratch when they first met you.
Have you ever heard that saying ‘First impressions are always the most important’? Well, that’s exactly what Custom menus are about when it comes to building a website.
Custom complete the moving around process of your website. Over time, you will continue to build and move around your menus as your site expands.
9. Learn what keywords are – content creation moving forward
Moving forward the learning and building does not end there for you. In fact, after building your site this is only the start of some very hard days ahead. Now, when I say hard work I don’t mean in definite. You can apply what you have learned exactly how you want but what’s important is staying consistent. The more active you are with your site the more Google will notice you. But at the same time, the more you work on your site the bigger it will get.
Your business is your business. You can be whoever you want to be online. You can rank for your website for reviews only or you can rank for common and competitive keywords and phrases. My top recommendation is that you rank for keywords that are common. I only recommend doing a review once a month if need be.
Keywords are very important for you business. They are also known as search terms. They are words or phrases that people search for when surfing the internet. Google is starting to get good at ranking your content for relative phases so instead of relying solely on keywords it uses it’s forever evolving technology which now knows how to match content with the search terms without keywords. Keywords are still important, it’s just the technology is getting so advanced that you will still rank.
Learning how to find and ranking your content around a particular keyword and long tail keyword phrase is an important part of SEO. To do this (or should I say learn this) you will need to always be on your computer learning anyway possible. Unless you want to join the training in this post you will need to search for keyword search tools to find what best matches your content. It’s the same for choosing a domain name. If you want top SEO performance on your Website try inserting a keyword also into your website’s domain name, and over a period of time, you will take that exact match key term. You may read people saying it doesn’t work anymore but it does. As you can see I have a keyword in my domain and it works very well indeed.
