8 Steps to Making Your Blog Successful – Passive Income Online Blogging

You are seeing these articles all over the
web about these kids who are making a ton of money by creating a blog. Sometimes these kids are generating thousands
and thousands of dollars a day. Sure, that's rare, but there's a lot of people
who are generating five, 10, 20 grand a month from their blog. I'm going to teach you today how you can create
a blog that generates income. The first thing you need to do is go to neilpatel.com/howtostartablog. Once you go there, you'll start seeing the
article. The article will break down how to get started
with your blogging platform. But first it teaches you that you need to
pick a niche.

How do you know what to blog about? Well, one, has to be based off of your passion. If you're really passionate about something,
you should probably consider blogging about that versus something that just makes money
such as mesothelioma. Mesothelioma and legal related keywords are
really lucrative, but who wants to blog about that stuff? It's boring. And if you don't love what you're going to
do, you're going to eventually quit. So blog about something you love. You have to be passionate about it. When you're on that web page on neilpatel.com
you can type in keywords, and it'll break down what industries have a big enough market
size. Now you're like, All right, I'm passionate
about this subject such as clothing or fashion and I know enough people are searching about
it so now I can create a blog about it. But you don't want to go too broad, and that
tool on neilpatel.com, that how to start a blog page, it'll tell you if the niche you're
picking is too big or too small.

Now that you got that out of the way sign
up for a hosting account. You can use BlueHost, HostGator, GoDaddy,
whatever you want. I would recommend that you use BlueHost because
with one click you can install WordPress and then it's up and running, you don't have to
be technical. Once it's up and running, you can even pick
some themes and the design, they'll give them to you, and then you want to start writing
your articles. Once you start writing your articles, there's
a few things you need to know. The first is if it's not appealing, people
aren't going to read it. Think about it. I'm writing this article, but I myself want
to read it. If you don't, don't write it then.

If other people also want to read it, great. You have to be willing to read it and other
people want to read it. Ask people, survey them, just talk to your
buddies, friends, people that you know, be like, 3Hey, would you like to read this article
about men's fashion and how you can match colors? Yeah, all right, that sounds cool.4 Great,
then write it. Now that you got your topic there's a few
things you need to know. First is your headline. Your headline has to be appealing. Go to Copyblogger. They have this headline formula. They'll teach you how to write really persuasive
headlines. They even give you a formula and a tool that
you just have to plug and play keywords in there, and you'll be able to create really
cool headlines from that. Now that you got your headline, outline what
your post is going to be about. Just think about those high school days where
you think, write the introduction, you write the body, and then the conclusion. The body has subheadings, so just write your
introduction, write the conclusion, add in your subheadings, and then fill the rest out.

That's how you get started with writing your
first blog post. When you're writing your first blog post,
each paragraph can't be more than five or six lines. If it's more than five or six lines what's
going to happen is it's going to be too overwhelming for people. No one wants to read a 10 line paragraph. It's just too much. Also, use the words you and I within your
blog post. That way it's like a conversation. People will interact, engage with you, and
then they'll leave comments. Why? Because your content is engaging. You can also ask a question at the end of
your conclusion, which will help create more engagement because that will spur more people
to leave comments.

And when they leave a comment, respond to
them. Don't be a prick. If someone asked you a question in person,
you would respond to them. Do the same with your blog. Once you got your blog post out, you of course
want to link to people within your blog post to back up the main points you want to make
or any other cool blogs that you think would benefit your readers. Once you figure that out, you want to start
doing this on a consistent basis. Write at least one post a week, but ideally
you should be blogging three times a week. Over a course of six months to a year you'll
build up a big base of readers.

As you build up a base of readers you can
use a tool called subscribers.com and hellobar.com. They're free. Hello Bar offers email subscriptions where
someone can subscribe to your blog by just entering in their email and get notified every
time you release a new blog post. Subscribers lets people know as they're browsing
around on their computer in the browser that, hey, you got a new blog post, and they should
go back to your site. So the people will start keep coming back
to your site. Then from there you can monetize in a few
ways. One you can put Google Adsense. It's a quick way to make money from Google
in which they'll pay you every time someone clicks on one of your ads. You can also use affiliate links. There's sites out there like clickbank.com
in which they'll let you promote products and services within your space, and every
time you generate a sale for someone else you'll get paid a commission.

That's called affiliate marketing. That's a really simple way to start making
money from your blog. The third way, and this is my favorite, why
not sell your own products or services. Let's say you have a site about fashion. You can actually do let's say a box where
they get mailed fashion tidbits, or they get mailed fashion items once a month, and you
can charge a premium for that.

That'92s a quick way to make money. It's kind of like Birchbox. Or you can sell a guide or an e-book about
men's fashion or how to be swag on a budget. Whatever it may be, you can sell an ebook
literally for $5, $9, whatever it may be. This will all start generating you income. And if you want, you can do a mixture of everything. As you do this from the ads to the affiliate
marketing to selling your own products, you'll notice that over time your income will go
up.

Just be patient and give it a good six months
to a year before you start making any decent money from your blog. Just like anything worthwhile it takes time..
