Earning with a Blog: Starting a Blog

First of all, it should be mentioned that starting and managing a blog is not as simple and straightforward as writing articles in a printed medium. Since this is an online procedure, there are some preliminary steps to be taken. Starting a blog requires, in fact, the management of one's own website. Here, in this regard, are some basic steps to follow:

  1. Getting a domain name and web hosting
  2. Set up web hosting account
  3. Install WordPress and customize the theme
  4. Writing and publishing the articles

  • Researching uncompetitive keywords that have a high search engine ranking success rate
  • Choose a topic about which you are an expert
  • Add some details and graphic content
  • Choose an appropriate and comprehensive title, description and introduction
  • Publish and promote your articles on social media

How to Make Money with a Blog

Selling Online Courses

A great way to make money with a blog is to make money by creating and selling courses in your area of expertise. Whether it is fancy clothing, cooking or various hobbies, there is always an online course that your audience would be interested in and willing to purchase.

Although this method will not directly benefit your brand, it is still a great way to receive money through a well-diversified income stream. You can find work by promoting your services through social media or by searching for ads on specialized platforms.

 Affiliate Marketing

One of the most interesting ways to make money from a blog is through so-called 'affiliate marketing'. This is accomplished when a partnership is struck between your brand and other brands, allowing them to market their products on your blog in return for a commission for each sale made. Although theaffiliate marketing may seem like an easy goal, there are some disadvantages you need to be aware of. First, affiliate deals are often reserved for blogs with significant visitor traffic. This means that with affiliate marketing it is possible to make money from a blog after a few years of hard work spent promoting your brand.

The latter is a very common earning practice among bloggers; it allows them to host advertising space within their pages aimed at showing third-party products more or less related to the content proposed by the blog.
