That's your key to making your mark in the blogosphere! Before you blog, create a Blueprint A lot of bloggers create blogs with no real strategy for how they'll market the blog or make money from it. Putting a blog together without an idea of how to go about it is like trying to build a house without having a plan. It's possible, yes. However, the end result is likely to be unprofessional and the whole thing may fall apart in a flash. It is essential to create a clear plan of action prior to even buy the domain. It is essential to create an outline that is solid before you even begin. If you wait until you've established the system and are getting traffic could mean lots of work going in to correct mistakes. Making changes to themes or adding plugins even after you've already been receiving visitors could cause interruptions to your traffic. Sometimes, new themes and plugins can temporarily break your blog. This can mean a loss of traffic (and money) as you wait repair everything. The very first stage of your plan should be selecting an area of interest, which is, of course. A key part of choosing an appropriate niche is choosing products that you can advertise. If the area you choose isn't one with products to offer, you could develop your own. However, if there's no affiliate products on the market, it could be because there's not enough demand for a product. In this scenario, you'll have to do some careful market research to determine whether a niche is truly viable. What's your purpose for blogging?Do you have your own product you'd like to sell? Do you want to promote affiliate products? Do you wish to put AdSense or CPA offers on your website? You should consider these issues to help you determine how you intend to monetize your website. If you're planning to market affiliate products, it is best to try the products on your own before you advertise them. If you don't, your visitors may be unhappy if you promoted an item of poor quality and they bought it due to their trust in them to trust you. What happens could happen if you're promoting something that is fraud? There is no need to buy every item you'd like promote. If you're able to show you've got an adequate quantity of traffic (and sometimes , if you have to ask) you might be able to obtain free review copies of the items you'd like to promote. It doesn't hurt to ask. Even even if you don't have already-established traffic, you can write to the director of a specific affiliate programme and tell them what you're planning to accomplish and inquire if you could get an evaluation copy. Some companies won't even give you a review copy. There are many marketers who receive requests for review copies from those who just want to get a copy of their product at no cost. Therefore, if you encounter an skeptic or someone who's been burned before you might be turned down. In this scenario it's best to just purchase the item if you truly want to promote it. If it's a scam or a product that is really bad request a refund. You can also consider using an option to accept donations on your blog. If you can't find any suitable products to advertise, and you don't have the time cash, or resources to design your own You can add a donation button. If your blog is excellent, you could receive donations. It is also possible to sell advertising space in your site. If you see significant amounts of traffic or you get an extremely high PageRank on Google You could be able to charge a lot of money to get a link posted on your blog. It is also possible to earn money to publish articles on your blog that critique other websites. Should a Blog Topic Be Broad or narrow? There are two different opinions on blog topics. Some think that your subject should be well-defined, as you'll attract a flurry of laser-targeted visitors. Plus, you have lesser competition in smaller markets. Another group of people think that everything worth doing is worth doing large. Their belief is that the sole way for blogging to be truly worthwhile is to bring in enormous traffic. The best way to reach the level of traffic you want is by being extremely large - casting a vast web, or so it's called. For example, you might have a blog about sports that has broad appeal. It could be discussing basketball, football, baseball, soccer, tennis, and golf. This would give you a much more broad appeal, as well as the potential for a greater volume of traffic. However, since there is plenty of competition, it could take a long time to get more traffic coming in. Also, the way I see it is that if I'm interested in golf, I really won't pay attention to the other aspects of the blog, so the blog's value is diminished in my eyes. But let's say you pick golf as your topic of choice. It's still broad but you've also separated it from the other sports available. There are a lot of things you can write about golf, such as vacations, apparel courses, clubs, techniques, etc. You can choose a more targeted niche like women's golf or senior golf. It is a smaller portion of a narrow niche. This means you could increase traffic quicker, since there would be less competition. A lower level of competition gives you the potential to rise faster in the search engine rankings. Of course, women's golf will receive a lower amount of traffic from the top position of Google than the total visitors from the other sports, but the chance of that traffic converting into a sale will increase. In essence, it comes down to your perception about your skills. If you think you can get one huge blog to the top of the search results quickly, then you could be able to manage the task of a large-scale topic. If you're not convinced that your skills are adequate You might want to choose a smaller segment at first. Remember, you can always begin other blogs later. You can build a small network of blog niches, or start with one large blog, and then create a number of sub-niche blogs later. Then, you can link to your blogs within your large blog. You can also begin with the smaller blogs, get them to gain some popularity, and then begin with a larger, more wide-ranging blog later. After you've established the larger blog, you'll have several smaller blogs already being visited and have PR which can be linked with the larger blog to start it off. If you already have extensive SEO experience and are confident that you'll pull off some great search engine rankings quickly start with a broad blog might be a better option. There are still certain advantages from having a small blog by having separate categories for each one of the smaller niches on your broad-based blog. One last thing to keep in mind is that traffic will be less targeted when you have a broad blog. If you've got a website that is focused on skin care, it's possible to get lots of traffic seeking information on the top lotions and creams. But if you start a blog about something specific such as acne, you're more likely to find people who are eager and willing to buy products. Where Do You Plan to Host Your Blog? A lot of people start out with hosting their blogs for no cost with one of the common blog hosting companies. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's more advantageous to host your blog using your own domain name if feasible. Let's look at WordPress. WordPress is a very popular blogging platform. It allows you to run your website on WordPress' servers or you can download the software and manage your blog using your own domain. There are many reasons to make your own blog a blog instead of hosting your blog on WordPress.com. For one thing, WordPress does not permit you to promote affiliate links on their website. If you're looking to make any money with your blog, you won't be able to have it hosted on WordPress' server and you'll need to host it your self. Another reason to not run your blog through WordPress is the fact it isn't possible to use the various plugins and themes you can use when you host your blog on your own domain. WordPress is extremely limited in functionality, so don't expect to find anything exciting on your blog when you publish it there. You can get free WordPress tutorials to help you start your blog. Now let's look at Blogger. They permit commercial blogs, so you could post affiliate links if you want. But they're also against what they consider to be "spam blog sites" as well as "splogs." If they decide your blog is spam or that the blog is "too" commercial or they don't like it, they can remove it in any way. All that hard work you put into it! You must accept the terms and conditions of your account when the time you register. This means that even it's not a violation of any rules, they could remove your blog at any time they choose to do so. This is a powerful way to motivate. It certainly wouldn't be the most pleasant way to create a blog that gets up to several thousand hits per day, but then to lose it (and believe me when I say that I've heard these horror stories). You'd lose all that traffic, all those backlinks, all of your reputation and your search indexes. Imagine everything being washed out over the course of a night. This isn't a good thing. It's like having a fire rip through your brick and mortar shop and you don't have insurance to replace. Another important reason to host your blog on an individual domain because it helps you establish credibility. If you host your blog on your own domain, you'll appear more professional, and appear to be a more authoritative figure in your niche. It's easy to be perceived as more serious if you're hosting your blog using your own domain rather than placing it somewhere for free. If you do choose to create one of your domains, the very first step you'll have to take is choose a domain that contains a few keywords related to your niche. If your blog is about house cleaning tips, then try to get housecleaningtips.com. If you aren't able to find it look through your keywords list and locate the next best thing. After that, you can register the domain. The next step is to locate a web host to host your blog. It is possible to select a host that has Fantastico, which is a program that sits in the servers and lets you very easily to install WordPress (and other scripts) without the need to create or manage MySQL databases by yourself. Once you've got hosting that you want to use, all you need to do is go to your domain registrar, and then set up the name servers to point to the new hosting provider. The support of your hosting company should be able to help you in this.
