As someone who has been blogging for years now, I’m always looking for ways to help my fellow bloggers out. I’ve made a ton of mistakes along the way, but I’ve also made tons of money and learned a lot about how to build a successful blog in the process. If you’re looking for a step-by-step plan to help you get your first six figures from your blog, this post is for you.
There are plenty of reasons why people start blogs, but very few of them make it big. You want your blog to be one of those rare success stories, but you don’t know where to start. That’s why I wrote this blog post. It’s going to walk you through everything you need to know to turn your blog into a successful money-making machine. This guide will show you how to get started with a blog and how to build a profitable blog in under a year.
The right Strategy to Become a Six-Figure Blogger
I’m not here to give you advice on what to write about or even how to create an audience for your blog. I am here to tell you how to build a blog from scratch that is making you money. There are two main things you need to do to start making money from your blog:
Create a good niche and sell a product
A good niche is one that has the potential to make you a lot of money, and a good product is one that has a demand. There are many niches that fit these criteria, but it’s not always easy to find them. So here are some tips on how to find a niche that will help you build a profitable blog.
First, identify the problem you’re trying to solve. What are people struggling with? What pain points do they have that could be solved by a solution you offer?
Once you’ve identified a pain point, take an honest look at the market. If there are many people offering solutions to that problem, it may be a saturated market. However, if there’s not much competition, you can start to think about starting your own business.
Next, look at what other blogs are doing in the same space as you. This will give you a good idea of how to position yourself and what you should avoid.
Finally, make sure you have a good product. It’s no use creating a blog if no one is interested in it. You need something that people want and are willing to pay for. If you have all these pieces in place, then it’s time to go to market.
Build a great website, make sure it ranks well, and get links.
This sounds like a lot, but it’s actually very simple. All you have to do is:
Once you have a website that’s easy to use, easy to navigate, and has tons of useful content, the next step is getting traffic to your site. You’ll need to optimize your website so it can rank on Google. Make your website rank #1 on Google for your target keyword. Get a ton of high-quality backlinks to your website (which will help you rank even higher). If you follow these steps, you should be able to hit your first six figures in no time.
Creating a content schedule
Before you can create a content schedule for your blog, you have to have a clear idea of what you want to achieve. What do you want your blog to look like in the future? How long do you want it to last? And most importantly, how many posts per week should you plan to publish?
Once you know this, you can figure out how much time it’s going to take you to produce each post. If you’re an amateur blogger, this might take longer than you think. But don’t worry – it’s a good thing. It means that you’re putting more time into your blog than your competitors.
Choosing the right platform
To start off, let’s talk about the importance of choosing the right platform for your blog. You may be thinking that there are thousands of different platforms to choose from, but the truth is that not all of them are good choices.
The first thing you need to do is find out what platform you’re most comfortable with. Are you a WordPress user? Do you like Tumblr? Or maybe you prefer Medium.
Once you have a good idea of which platform you’re most comfortable with, you can start looking at the other features. For example, does the platform offer free hosting? What is the speed of the platform? How easy is it to use?
Finding your audience
One of the biggest mistakes new bloggers make is focusing on the wrong audience. The biggest mistake I ever made was trying to be popular by getting lots of page views and followers. I would spend hours writing articles for a small niche that only a few people were interested in because I wanted to build my following.
However, this is not what your audience wants. They want to read about topics they care about, not topics you care about. To get your blog off the ground, you need to find an audience that cares about the same things you do.
You can get this audience by starting with the blog topic you want to cover and looking for a community that has similar interests. For example, if you’re going to write about social media marketing, look for communities like “SEO” or “Facebook Marketing” on Facebook or Google.
Promoting your content
If you’re serious about making money from your blog, you’re going to have to promote it. Without promotion, you’re not going to be able to reach a critical mass of people, and you’re not going to be able to generate enough sales to make money.
I’ve found that the best way to promote a blog is to have a combination of paid advertising, influencer marketing, and organic marketing.
You may be thinking “I don’t want to pay for marketing.” Well, guess what? You don’t have to. Influencers are willing to give away their audiences for free.
If you can find one or two influencers who are interested in your topic, they might be willing to write a guest post on your blog. This is an easy way to get them on your site, as long as you can come up with a decent article idea.
Optimizing your site
Blogging has become more than just a hobby for me over the past few years. I’ve had over a dozen articles on my site that have earned over $3,000 in total earnings each, and I’ve been featured on sites like The Huffington Post, Business Insider, and VentureBeat.
My main goal in creating this blog post was to give others who are looking to start a blog some ideas about how to optimize their sites and make the most money out of them.
Networking is one of the most important aspects of blogging. By creating relationships with other bloggers, influencers, and thought leaders, you can increase the traffic to your website. You’ll notice that this strategy doesn’t involve link building, which is an outdated and spammy technique. Instead, you’re going to connect with people who already have a large following and have a good reputation in their niche.
This way, you can leverage the value of their audience to get more exposure for yourself. For example, I reached out to a blogger who has over 40,000 followers on Twitter, and she agreed to write a guest post on my site. In return, I reciprocated by reaching out to her blog and offering to give her blog a shout-out in one of my posts. The result? My post got over 10,000 page views! How do I know this worked? Because a month later, this blogger contacted me to ask if I could help her out with a guest post on her blog. She now has another over 10,000 followers!
If you want to be a blogger, you need to know what it takes to build an online business that will eventually earn you six figures. The good news is, it doesn’t take much effort and there are no secrets to making it happen. You can start earning six figures by blogging on a schedule that fits your lifestyle. Whether you have one or more blogs, you can still earn big bucks. In order to be successful with your blog, you need to write posts consistently and you need to promote them well.
By promoting them, I mean that you should advertise them so that people will find them. If they will find your blog, then they will read it and they will like it. Then, they will share it with their friends. When this happens, you will gain many followers and readers. The more followers and readers you have, the more money you will make. Also, you can make money from affiliate programs.
These programs allow you to get paid when other people click on links in your blog. However, you must have a website where people can click on the links. If you do that, you will eventually earn six figures. This is why it is important for you to learn how to build a website because, without a website, you won’t be able to earn big bucks. When you are working on something, you will have many ups and downs in your life. It will not always be fun. However, you will have success if you keep at it. Find your passion. Follow it and keep at it until you succeed.
I think it’s important for bloggers to understand that there’s no set formula to success. The only thing that can limit you is your own self-imposed limitations. Don’t be scared to take risks. If you feel like something isn’t working, change it. This is how you grow. Growth happens when you experiment, fail, learn, and move on. This is the only way to become a successful blogger in the long run.
