What Are Blogs And How To Make Money From
  Them?
     'Blogs' or 'Blogging' have existed for several years and there are still
     many people who don't know what one is and how important it is to
     making you money.

     A blog is a web log. It's used to add contents of a diary or news by the
     owner (blogger). For example, I may want to blog about the latest
     affiliate programs there are and ones that have good commissions as
     soon as I know about them. People can visit my website and see new
     contents on my website regularly.

     A blog should contain information about a similar topic. For example,
     cars, computers, stamps etc... The good thing about blogs is that you
     can write whatever you want on it. Your visitors can even comment on
     what they think about a particular blog. With a blog you do not need to
     have any programming experience. You can update a blog easily by just
     typing what you want just like with a word processor. What an easy way
     to update a website.

     So now we know what a blog is, what's so good about a blog? Why are
     so many talking about it?

  Owners have found     that updating fresh content to their websites has
  been made easier      by using blogging software. Before blogs were
  popular, people had   to create the content, get it transferred into HTML
  by the programmer,    and then uploaded to the website. All this hassle is
  gone with blogging.

  Perhaps, the most important thing about having a blog is that the search
  engines love them. Yes, search engines love new content. It means a
  website is not static, therefore search engines will visit that website often
  and get them indexed. If you have a blog, search engines will have your
  website in their listings quickly.

  Blogging should be done regularly by your business. The customers
  should have the feeling that your blog will be updated regularly so that
  they will feel the need to visit often. If your blog is stagnant, then people
  will not go back. This is not how blogs are used.

  What a lot of people don't know about blogging is that it can also help
  make you money. Yes - blogs can be profitable too.

  One of the ways you can profit from blogs is to provide valuable content
  to them, and keep them regularly informed. Once you have created that
  relationship with them, you can place affiliate links within your blogs.
  These have to be products or services that you recommend to your
  readers to use. Good commission comes with using this idea.

  You can even ask your readers to donate money to maintain your blog.
  Stress that your blog is a free service and you hope that they will support
  you etc...

  Once you have a lot of visitors to your blogging website, you can use
  Google's Adsense which shows Google's ads on your blogs. When your
  visitors click on those ads, you'll get a percentage of the payment for
  each click. With a lot of visitors, this will add up to a nice check every
  month.

  You can even have an advertising space at the top of your blog.
  Advertise this space. You can charge people weekly to advertise what
  they want. You may even have more than one space for advertisements.
  The more popular and more visitors your blog gets, the more you can

   charge for these advertising spaces.



Blogging for Profit Begins Here
   Many people dream of blogging for profit, and this goal is not far beyond
   the reach of someone with average intelligence, a willingness to work
   hard, and a basic grasp of blogging technology. However, very few
   people manage to reap the profits they want from their blog. Most
   people who attempt to make money with their blogs do not succeed for
   two reasons.

   Often, bloggers have unrealistic expectations of how fast their readership
   will grow and how much money they will make, and when these
   expectations are not met the disappointment can crush the desire to
   continue blogging. The other trap that many bloggers fall into has to do
   with lack of planning. If you want to turn a profit as a blogger, the key to
   success is to make a realistic plan and stick with it.

   To succeed at blogging for profit, the main thing that you will need is a
   large readership. The higher your traffic, the more advertisers will agree
   to pay you. However, cultivating the regular visitors that you will need in
   order to make a profit isn't easy. As more and more blogs appear each
   day, having a great idea or a wonderful writing style is no longer enough
   to get attention.

   You need to be able to market your blog effectively. Too many bloggers
   spend all of their time writing posts and almost no time marketing their
   project. To be certain, updating as often as you can is a great way to
   keep your blog high on blogrolls and high in blog search engines like
   technorati, and once your readers know that you update frequently they
   will return to your site on a regular basis.

   However, it does not matter how often you update if nobody is reading
   your page, so don't skimp on the time that you spend drawing visitors to
   your site.

   To make your dreams of blogging for profit a reality, try decreasing your
   number of posts and using some of that time to draw new visitors by

   setting up link exchanges with other bloggers, making contacts in the
   blog community, and following other established modes of winning
   traffic. Of course, even if you are a marketing genius or have a really
   great idea for a blog, success is not going to happen overnight.

   Building the kind of readership that blogging for profit requires takes
   time, and in all likelihood it will be at least several months before you are
   able to turn much of a profit. Try to stay committed to your blogging
   project during this initial rough period. To stay motivated, set goals for
   how often you will update and how many readers you want to attract,
   and then reward yourself for sticking with your plan.


The Easy How-To Make Money Blogging Guide
   There are two major types of business models that entrepreneurs use to
   make money blogging. The first and most common way to turn a blog
   into a profit making machine is to sell advertising to different companies
   and brands who want to reach that blog's readers.

   The second kind of money making blog is one that helps a single brand
   improve its image by creating positive associations between the blog and
   the product in the mind of consumers. Both kinds of blogs can make a lot
   of money, especially if the creator has a keen mind for marketing.

   If you are blogging with the goal of selling advertising, there are two
   basic ways that you can go about recruiting sponsors who want to put
   ads on your site; you can let someone else do all of the legwork, or you
   can do the work yourself and keep all of the revenue. Within the first
   group, many people make money blogging by selling space through
   Google's AdSense program.

   The advantages of this program are numerous, as it requires very little
   effort on the part of the blogger or webmaster to begin raking in profits.
   However, most people discover that they make less money through this
   method than they had hoped that their blog would earn. Selling
   advertising directly to companies who want to put banner ads or
   sponsored links on your blog can take quite a bit of time, but it is often
   fairly lucrative.

  If you have a lot of contacts in industries that are related to the topic of
  your blog, you may want to try to go this route. People who have a
  strong background in sales and are experienced at pitching proposals can
  make quite a bit of money by renting blog space to interested
  companies.

  The most serious problem with this model is that you often have to build
  quite a sizable readership before you can attract advertisers, which can
  mean that you have to do several months of work before you start to
  make money blogging. As blogging becomes a more and more lucrative
  business, a lot of established companies are considering how they can
  get into the action.

  One way that companies are capitalizing on the blog movement is by
  having blogs that provide a kind of friendly face for their corporation.
  Often, a company will employ an established blogger to create a weblog
  designed specifically to appeal to that company's customers and to
  create positive associations with the brand in consumers' minds.

  More than one writer who never even dreamed that he or she could
  make money blogging has been approached by a company and offered
  quite a pretty penny for this kind of gig.

  If you run a small company, you may find that the world of blogging for
  business owners is a world that you want to be a part of. Blogging is a
  great way to get the word out to consumers about your product or
  service, and it can even be useful for inspiring employee loyalty and
  helping you keep your workers at peak morale.

  If you are looking for a way to take your business to the next level,
  consider what starting a blog might be able to do for you. Blogging for
  business owners has a lot in common with all other types of blogging,
  but it has its own unique pitfalls and strengths.

  The key to having a successful blog as a business owner is keeping your
  goals clear and concrete at every step of your blogging adventure. It can
  be all to easy to get sidetracked, especially if you are just learning about
  the exciting possibilities of blogging technology, but if you want your
  blog to succeed you need to stay focused.

   Write up a plan for how often you will update, how you will promote your
   blog and retain readers, whether you will feature photographs or video,
   and other aspects of your blog, and then stick to it with the same kind of
   determination that you used when you built your company.


The Importance Of Blog Design
   Many people have started to create their personal blogs to express their
   thoughts and feelings. Internet companies have also started their blogs
   to inform consumers on the latest product news and reviews.

   Because of this, blogs are also being used as internet marketing media.
   Before, internet marketing is done by placing banners and links on
   popular websites, such as news and information sites. Links were also
   included on newsletters and marketing letters sent to the members of
   their mailing lists.

   Many people spend time reading blogs. People read their friend's blogs,
   their favorite author's blogs, blogs on topics that they are interested in,
   and blogs on product reviews. With the increasing popularity of blogging,
   it is even feared that people rely on blogs to get the latest news.

   While getting news reports from blogs isn't reliable, some people look for
   product reviews through blogs. In some cases, this is more dependable.
   While it is true that some media persons are being paid to write good
   reviews about a certain product, blog writers write about their actual
   experiences on products and services from a company.

   Since there are many people who read and start their own blogs, blogs
   are a good medium to market a product. With the increasing blog traffic
   means increase in product sales.

   Blog traffic can be increased by joining affiliate programs and sites,
   which will list your blog under a certain search category or name. You
   can also have your blog advertised in popular websites. This, however,
   will cost some money and is not advisable if you have just started
   blogging.

   A writer who has just launched his/her blog will want as much traffic as
   possible to increase advertisements on the site. Also, some advertisers

  pay every time their link is clicked or the page that has their link is
  viewed.

  When you have increased traffic on your blog, you should try to keep
  you visitors coming back and recommending your blog to friends and
  colleagues.

  This can be done by having informative or amusing content and good
  blog layout and design. You may develop your blog's content or you can
  also acquire the services of a web content writer to provide you with the
  blog articles.

  The blog's layout and design also plays a big role. While most of the
  companies offering free blog hosting offer pre-selected templates, there
  are also some that allows customization that if you utilize this feature
  correctly can increase your blog's traffic.

  Here are a few tips to make your blog stand out from the millions of
  blogs out there that have standard designs.

  * Customize the banner

  The banner usually has the most generic designs that are common to the
  blogs from a blogging company or service.

  You can personalize this banner by having a graphic with the dimensions
  of the banner. You can also edit the graphic so that it will also include
  the title of your blog.

  In this case, you can create your own graphic or you can purchase
  professional looking graphics online for less than $10.

  * Personalizing photos

  Of course, most of the photos that you will be posting will be your own.
  However, if you don't customize the photos before posting them, you
  may miss maximizing the enhancing benefits graphics can add to the
  page. Adding photo borders can help the photo stand out from the page.

  It can also add to the design of your blog. You can choose a standard

   border or you can also create your own border which can be associated
   with your blog's templates.

   * Add a favicon

   Don't you think sites with icons on the address bar before the website's
   URL are cool? Many people do. These favicons add a professional look to
   the URL. These easy to do using photo or graphic editing softwares.

   * Check out blog templates, layouts, backgrounds, textures and skins
   from sites

   There are sites that offer free blog templates, layouts, backgrounds,
   textures and skins. You can make use of these so your blog will not look
   generic like most of the blogs hosted by the service provider.

   * Include RSS feeds

   This is a cool way to inform people with newsreaders about your blog
   headlines. Tutorials on RSS feeds are available on the internet.

   * Audio makes your blog more personal

   Not only does audio personalizes the blog; it can also keep your visitors
   coming back. You can try having streaming radio stations, mp3 file or
   playlists loading with your blog.

   * Advertisements

   If you have signed-up with Google Ad-Sense, which I am sure you would
   like to do, make sure that the ads are conveniently placed that these will
   not hinder your readers' ease in accessing the information on your blog.

   Try using these tips and you can definitely increase and retain traffic on
   your blog.

How Much Money Can I Earn With My Blog?

   blog you're surely asking yourself how much you could make from such a

                 From http://www.millionstrategy.com

  program. You probably think you can't make as much as you can from
  traditional advertising schemes.

  Google, of course, keeps a great deal of secrecy regarding how much
  AdWords advertisers pay per each click directed to their site and the
  same applies for how much AdSense banner holders make from their
  websites and blogs

  While there's nothing official, rumors circulate around the Internet
  concerning the amount of cash a blogger can earn by using AdSense.
  And many people (illegally) disclose how much they have been making
  with AdSense. There are stories of people raising over one thousand
  dollars per month using AdSense, some as much as $1000 a day just
  through blogging.

  There are also stories of people exceeding $100,000.00 per month but
  it's a bit hard to believe such stories. The truth to the matter is that if
  you have a small blog and you just want it to support itself with a little
  extra income, and you don't wish to reach your pocket for its
  maintenance costs you can easily do this with AdSense.

  AdSense is also very good for people who host a lot of pages or very
  large community blogs. Even if the said pages or blogs don't generate a
  lot of traffic individually, every click counts and you can earn up with a
  lot of money by doing this. And that just goes to prove that sometimes
  quantity matters nearly as much as quality.

  There's no telling how much money you're going to make by using
  Google's AdSense program on your blog but you can sort of tell for
  yourself, before actually starting, by taking a few things into
  consideration.

  First, is the amount of visits your blog may now get every day. While
  there's no way to estimate precisely on this, you can generally make a
  safe assumption that if you have a lot of clicks per day you'll be making
  good money.

  Also, this depends on what exactly your blog is about. If your site is
  about anything popular (music, sex, whatever) you're bound to get a lot
  of banner clicks. These have a coefficient associated with them, called

                                                                                10

                  From http://www.millionstrategy.com

   the CTR (click through ratio).

   Basically, what it translates to is that if a large proportion of your site's
   visitors click the ads you'll be making more money. And the best way to
   do this is to have some popular content in your site, ensuring the links
   direct users towards popular items as well.

   Then of course, there's the position and number of ads on your blog.
   While you don't want to overdo it, having many ads will undoubtedly
   generate more income for you as a webmaster. Do not however believe,
   that if you just add a lot of ads in an important portion of your site,
   visitors could always just skip them (and be assured that many do just
   that).

   There's something between an art and a science to positioning your ads.
   People generally look in certain places and never look in others, and
   knowing this a website author and/or webmaster can do a great deal of
   things to increase his earnings with AdSense.

   All in all, the amount of money you make with AdSense depends on
   many factors. But if you have a site with interesting contents and/or
   many pages, and if you see a constantly large amount of traffic every
   day, you can bet you'll be making a lot of money with AdSense.

   Even if you aren't in the above categories, AdSense is still worth using on
   your blog because there's very little hassle in setting it up, and many
   times it can help financially support the site, whilst being a nice bonus to
   get through the mail at the end of the month.


Create Blogging Time
   What's the perfect job? How about a job where you are your own boss,
   you set your own hours, work right from home, never have to deal with
   unreasonable deadlines and get to do something you love doing? Sound
   good? Well that's the job description of a blogger. That, however, is the
   not the whole story! There are very, very few bloggers who have nothing
   else to do but work on their blog and even fewer who have a blog that
   provides a decent source of income so blogging is, for most, a second or
   even a third “job.”

  There are two basic types of bloggers, the casual blogger and the serious
  blogger.

  The casual blogger may have a basically well balanced life and a blog
  that is primarily a hobby. The casual blogger will start writing a post,
  work at it for awhile and then stop to get some other things done until
  he or she feels like writing again. If a finished post doesn't get many
  comments, that's OK; the post expressed just what the casual blogger
  wanted to say and its out there if anyone is interested.

  The serious blogger's situation is quite different from the casual
  blogger's. The serious blogger has a blog that he or she considers to be
  a job -- a job that may be competing with other important elements of
  life such as a primary job, a family, a social life and adequate rest. The
  serious blogger is committed (almost to the point of an obsession) to
  maintaining his or her blog and feels it is an essential element of daily
  life. The serious blogger feels dejected if any post sits on the blog for
  twenty-four hours or so without generating a comment or if the blog's
  “hit counter” does not register a certain number of visitors every day.
  That kind of commitment to blogging may take a big hunk of time out of
  the day and can easily create some serious conflicts between blogging
  and the rest of life -- to avoid this, the serious blogger needs to be
  organized and efficient.

  Time management for the serious blogger! Anyone who feels that the
  day is too short needs to understand and implement the basic principle
  of time management: setting priorities. Some things are obviously more
  important than other things but some important things may be left
  undone unless you are controlling your schedule and not having random
  events control you. You need to set priorities and live by them.

  Make a priority list! To begin setting priorities, make a list of everything
  you need to get done -- everything including things you've committed to
  doing, things you want to do, things you know you should do and things
  that you really don't want to do but are on your mind. Be honest and put
  everything on the list -- take a couple hours or more to put it together if
  you need that much time, it will be time well spent because you are
  about to get organized.

  Categorize! Now carefully consider each item on the list and put each

   Must get it done today
   Must get it done this week
   Nice to do and might be beneficial
   Nice to do but not really necessary
   Unnecessary

   Now you have a decent priority list. Start every day with this list and
   every time you become aware of a new task add it in a proper place to
   the proper category. As the “must do” items are accomplished and
   moved off the list, some of the nice-to-do items may be moved up, but
   only if their priorities can honestly be changed.

   Too many must-do things! If the list of items in the two “Must get it done
   . . . ” categories is overwhelming, reconsider each item's importance and
   re-prioritize if you can, if not select the items that you really don't have
   to do yourself, things like fix-it projects, business phone calls, business
   letters, editing and proofreading jobs, etc. -- some of these things may
   be able to be done just as well by someone else. Find a friend, family
   member, co-worker or a freelancer to do it for you.




Top Paying Keywords For Your Blog
   In people's search for higher incomes from placement of Google AdSense
   ads on their blogs a lot of AdSense publishers are looking to find those
   keywords that really bring the best income possible. The higher an
   advertiser pays for a keyword, the more the advertiser receives when
   they click on a link.

   But how can you find such words for your blog? Well, the answer to that
   question depends a little on who you are and what you're prepared to do
   to get those keywords. But the general good news is that you can indeed
   find such words if you need them.

   Of course, if you can afford such a solution, one of the best ways of
   getting your hands on those words would be to pay for them. There are

  specialized companies that do business by finding people good keywords,
  not only for the purpose of more AdSense revenue but for search engine
  optimization as well.

  Such a service can be found on "Top Paying Keywords" and this is a no-
  brainer to getting relevant content on your site and increasing your
  revenue by a whole bunch quickly.

  Of course, if such a solution does not work for you, you can ultimately
  resort to a method of personal investigation. That means you try out
  keywords by yourself and see which ones work better or worse for
  yourself.

  While you might also be doing this for the first method (paying someone
  else to get the keywords) it would probably be better then this because
  you'd at least be narrowing down search to certain items.

  While you're trying this make sure to keep using AdSense's 'channels'
  feature along the way as it can be a very good way of letting you know
  which sections of your site are generating income and which aren't.

  Great tool that does all the hard work for you is Market samurai. It has
  amazing step-by-step video tutorials so you know exactly how to use it
  to make highest profits from your blog. You can get free trial here.

  Also, a great aid may very well be found in Google itself. Search Google
  for any keywords you may wish to include in your pages and look at the
  results. The results on the left will probably be your competitors (and if
  they have Google AdSense ads on their page you can bet then are) while
  the links on the right display ads relevant to your search.

  If your search doesn't yield any AdSense results then you might want to
  reconsider including those keywords in your site.

  Make sure you don't use any dead words on your blog (words that don't
  get any links on AdSense other then public ads). That is probably the
  most important thing you should be doing when considering keywords to
  chase in your blooging for dollars campaign.

  Of course these are only a few methods of getting out of the dead zone

   and starting to make serious money with AdSense. If you've seen a lot of
   people with "not so hot" websites generating a lot of AdSense revenue,
   using these tips can get you right behind them (or in front if you're really
   smart) very fast. Although this is the case it is also very important to
   remember that having the highest paying words does not mean that you
   make the most money. You have to also consider how many times the
   advert is clicked on.


SEO For Your Blog
   If you've been using Google's AdSense on your blog you obviously feel
   the need to somehow generate even more traffic to your blog website,
   which in turn would translate to more AdSense clicks and a higher
   income.

   But who do you do this? Well, the major way you'll get visitors to see
   your blog (other then using AdWords, which is encouraged as well) is to
   use some techniques to have search engines send more and more users
   towards your blog, by ranking high in search results for your topics of
   interest.

   This is a technique, better known as search-engine optimization or simply
   SEO. So here are a bunch of tips that can come handy under every
   amateur or professional optimizer's belt.

   The first thing you need to take care of is the actual source code and
   layout of your blog. This has to be kept as simple as possible. The
   problem comes when AdSense and the search engines themselves begin
   to have troubles in extracting the most relevant keywords on your site
   because of a too complex layout.

   Secondly, try to have each one of your blog pages target only one
   specific topic. This way it is a lot easier for them to get indexed properly
   and for the AdSense ads to be consistent with the content of the blog
   itself.

   Also, try not to include too many hyperlinks in your page as well. This
   also means you should try not to use too many AdSense ads on your
   page either one or two boxes is all you need.

   If there are certain keywords you wish to target, make sure the word
   you wish to target is present in the blog title, in the first paragraphs of
   your post as well as in the name of the page. While you're at it you
   might want to ensure the word springs up in the page's last paragraphs.

   And of course, it's very important for your content to have original and
   compelling content. How do you do this? Well the easiest way to do it is
   to find something you're really passionate about. That way, providing
   you give it a lot of effort you're bound to have a great page quite fast.

   If the content you use in your blog is in the public domain (which is
   highly discouraged) make sure that you at least give it an original title,
   and add an opening and a closing paragraph of your own.

   This takes a little while, but if, after waiting, you still can't find your page
   near the top, you should try rewriting your title and your first and last
   paragraphs. It doesn't take much, often just changing a few words will
   give you the right results to stay ahead of teh competition.

   And of, course there's the use of keyword tools that may aid you in
   finding some good keywords to include on your blog's theme that will
   drive visitors to your blog more and more.

   So those are about the basic techniques in search engine optimization.
   You can find a lot of computer tools to aid you in doing this, and of
   course, Google is a great place to search for this.

   In the end, you'll find that SEO is a complex topic, and entire books have
   been written on the topic as well. Probably the best source I have ever
   seen on SEO and website traffic is George Brown's Traffic Ultimatum and
   if you are serious in making money online (which I guess you are), you
   should definitely consider this investment which will return many times.


Myths About Blogging

   There are certain myths that have grown up around blogs, bloggers and
   the blogosphere in general. Here are just some of them and some

  clarifications:
  Anyone can start a blog!
  Not just anyone! There are some requirements, some more obvious than
  others. Obviously, you need a computer that you know how to use, an
  Internet connection and some experience using the Internet. You also
  need a host for your blog; there are blog hosts that are free and some
  that cost a small amount per month. One last requirement is not just an
  ability to communicate your thoughts but also a willingness to do so.

  Anyone can set up a blog!
  Some blogs are much easier to set up and use than others, this depends
  on your blog host (e.g., blogger, iblogs, typepad, tblog, etc.). Some blog
  hosts take you through a couple simple set-up steps and you're off
  writing your first post but there are others that get far more technical
  than the average user may be ready for.

  Blogging doesn’t take up that much time!
  That depends! Some posts, when you have a clear idea of what you
  want to say, may take just a few minutes while you may struggle for
  days (literally) with others that involve complex issues or thoughts. In
  general, blogging is a daily activity for the serious blogger (some
  bloggers write up to ten posts a day) and a once-a-week activity for the
  casual blogger.

  Blogs are in competition with the main-stream media!
  This is true in a few cases (not as many cases as bloggers would have
  you think). Just recently, there have been some very popular and
  influential social and politically-oriented blogs that have caused main-
  stream media outlets to back-track and change their coverage of
  important events.

  Bloggers just criticize and have no new information to add!
  This may be true in some cases but blogging today is much more than
  the personal activity it used to be. Corporations, media outlets, public
  personalities, politicians and experts in almost every field have now
  joined the ranks of blog producers. Considering all this expertise, one
  would have to say that bloggers have a lot of new information to add to
  any debate.

  You can't believe anything you read in a blog!

   That's a bit of an overstatement. You'll run across bad information and
   even intentional untruths in blogs but, for the most part, bloggers who
   state facts are stating what they honestly believe to be fact. It is always
   up to the readers to verify that any information they receive is accurate
   information.

   The blogosphere is a meritocracy!
   Does the cream rise to the top? Of course it does but outside of the
   world of the dairy, a lot depends on how you define cream. If you
   consider the those bloggers who have the highest readership to be the
   “best“ than yes, the blogosphere is a meritocracy with readership being
   the 'payoff' for being the best.

   The best, however, is not always the most popular. You will, while
   surfing, run across some extremely intelligent, extremely poignant and
   extremely erudite bloggers who have a very small readerships, as
   evidenced by very few, if any, comments to their posts. That can be
   explained by those blogger's lack of willingness to 'play the game' that
   must be played to attract a large readership, e.g., aggressively
   promoting their blogs, spending many times more hours reading and
   commenting on other's blogs than they spend writing for their own,
   listing their blog on every available directory, etc..

   Every one of us has a different definition of success, to some, a large
   readership is adequate success, to some using their blog as a money-
   making device and actually making some money is the ultimate success
   while to others, like those with an intentionally low profile, feel that
   simply creating posts that are perfect expressions of what they want to
   say is reward enough.



Build Up Your Blogs and Watch Your Adsense
  Cash Grow
   The best thing about blogging is that there are no rules. You can write
   about anything you want. A self-publisher’s dream!

   There are some things you can do though to maximize your Google
   Adsense profits. Narrow your subject. Don’t just write about shopping.

   Write about shopping for antique dresser drawer pulls. Write every day.
   Have a blog at more than one site. If you develop a readership, you’re
   more likely to increase your profits.

   Write about something you know or want to know or at the very least
   care about. If you try to write a great blog based on a “hot keyword” yet
   it’s something you could care less about, you’ll likely not stay with it long.

   Experiment and see what works for you. You can write based on your
   own opinion or something factual. You can review a product or service or
   a movie. Read other people’s blogs and notice how many reads they’re
   getting. Above all, have fun. After all, it’s free and if you’re persistent
   you’ll see your Google Adsense dollars adding up.


Use Pictures For Best Effect With Your Blogs
   So you have become a blogger. You have joined the legions of those
   keeping web logs and journals online. How do you make it fresh,
   though? How do you stand out and show the world that your blog is
   worth a read? Well there are a number of things you can do from
   optimizing your content to making sure you are consistent in your
   updates. However, consider the idea of adding pictures to your blog. A
   great deal of blog success can be had by making pictures a big part of
   what you are doing on your journal. Post them, link to them, or do
   whatever you have to, but pictures can be the difference in your blog
   being simply a fun hobby or being a big success.

   In order to understand why pictures are a part of blogging success, you
   should make sure that you understand what the world of blogging is all
   about. For the most part, blogs are often used to sell something. It can
   be a product or it can simply be your own ideas and readership. Either
   way, you want your blog to be read. So everything you do with your blog
   will likely be done as part of making it interesting to your designated
   audience, right? Keep that in mind as you put everything together.

   Most any good blog is going to have a theme. Before you begin your
   blog you need to figure out what your theme is. Is it your life? Is it your
   philosophies? No matter what, there is no better way to make a point
   about your theme than with photos or pictures. Most any blog site has
   the tools for uploading pictures, so make sure you are using them.

  Potential readers will be able to see just what you are all about as soon
  as they see your blog page without having to read a lot to see whether
  or not they want to continue reading your page. When you have an
  instant impact with pictures it will be much easier for you to end up with
  a successful blog.

  For many people, the blog is a tool they use to market a product and
  drive up sales or services they offer that go hand in hand with their blog.
  With good pictures and photos you can keep your products in front of
  your readers at all times. You can put images of the products along the
  side of your page or you can place them strategically through the blog
  site. In addition, you can then advertise without bombing your readers
  with your propaganda in the text. Nobody wants to read a bunch of ads,
  but if you post pictures, you can advertise without advertising all over
  your actual blog content. Either way, the photos and images will be
  added way of making your blog a success for you.

  Another reason that pictures can be a big key to blog success is simply a
  matter of aesthetics. Images will make your blog look nicer and if it looks
  nicer it will then attract more readers. It all makes sense. I mean, would
  you want to publish a book with a boring blank cover? Of course you
  wouldn’t. The same goes for your blog. In essence, a well kept blog is
  like your online book and with good images you are making for a nice
  cover. They may say not to judge a book by its cover, but many do
  anyway so you might as well have a nice looking one just to be safe.

  The truth is that whether you are talking about blogs, magazines, or
  television, we live in a society that is very visual. So when it comes to a
  good blog, readers expect to see pictures and images that will titillate
  them and keep them engaged in the information. So, the key is to keep
  your images fresh and consistent so that they help accentuate your
  points and support your themes and ideas. You can get your pictures and
  images from your own library of images and pictures you have taken on
  vacations, around your home, or even just in your town. You can also
  download free images that are available online, link to other blogs or
  even use other images if you are willing to pay the royalties. No matter
  what, though, the key to blogging success is very closely tied to the
  images and visual quality of your blog. Newspapers and magazines
  would not sell as well if they lacked images, and your blog will operate
  just the same way.

  There is such a thing as a ‘bad lead’ where you will get prospect
  objections and rejections.

  company since some of them might sell re-used leads – which you will

  prospects to always say yes, instead of hearing a bunch of no’s from
  prospects. In addition, you need to make sure that your advertising
  money is worth it.

  ‘How to Use Blogs to Generate Leads for an MLM Business’

  With Internet marketing, you have to be innovative and find ways to
  develop a well-thought out promotional campaign.

  However, you cannot predict the results. You may have an extremely
  profitable and successful promotional campaign one time and then
  completely fail the next time.

  With the popularity of blogging, you can use this in expanding your
  business and generating leads.

  For example, if you are an entrepreneur who has a small jewelry
  business, you can have a blog where users interested in jewelry or
  jewelry-making can post their comments.

  Being a small-scale entrepreneur, you need to market and promote your
  business. You can easily do this and generate a lot of lead by having the
  visitors on your blog post comments and address their questions and
  feedbacks to you, personally.

  This would not just add on to your lead but also give you a feedback of
  what most of your prospective customers want or need.

  With the use of a client-specific blog, multi-level marketers and business
  owners can easily generate leads, contact prospects, turn these leads
  into sales and watch their profits increase.

Choosing The Right Blogging Tools
    There are many free blogging tools on the market, but loading up your
    blog with all of the free accessories that you can find isn't necessarily a
    good idea.

    While it may be tempting to add a visitor counter, a flashy background,
    an exciting new font, and a cluster of quirky animated gifs
    to your blog, this kind of plan can easily backfire. The key to getting the
    most from free blog tools is being selective.

    It is a great idea to learn about all of the kinds of free blogging tools that
    are available so that you can make an informed decision about what to
    add to your blog, but try to remember that just because you can have
    something doesn't mean that you need it. Practice restraint and only
    choose the options that you think will really be useful.

    And last but not least... Consider some premade paid tools like Traffic
    Blog Empire or Blogging To The Bank that can literally skyrocket your
    blogging profits.
