One year ago, my father asked me, the young internet entrepreneur, “What’s a blog?” I paused for minute. I had heard the term before … but I couldn’t answer him. I honestly didn’t know. Little did I know that so many people would soon tap into a new type of gold mine and make money with blogs.
The mighty Splog – This is a “dirty” blog, and most people don’t like splogs. A Splog is a blog that is built by someone that takes other people’s content from their site without permission and put it on their site, they then turn around and put their ads all over the site. Besides just being downright rude, it actually does hurt people like you and I that strive to provide original content.
The first rule about blogging is to make friends. Despite the fact that some blogs are actually corporate, serious and professional in their approach, most blogs these days are friendly and personal. So, what do you have to do to bring people into your blog? Blog hopping. Yes, visit other people’s blogs and give them comments (genuine ones, please) and provide a link back to your Workout tracker. The key is to MAKE FRIENDS.
CPA online blogs Marketing Leads are the lifeblood of any business. Did you know that you can even get paid when someone completes a form to try out a product or service? This is called CPA marketing and it is a form of affiliate marketing. Whenever someone completes a form with their name or email address you can receive a commission. No sale is required in most cases in order for you to get paid. Companies will pay a few cents up to $200 per lead.
Note that this approach is trial and error. Not every website you check out that links to your competitors will have dofollow comments. However, if the links are showing up for your competitor, there’s a chance you can get a link.
People always talk of online success stories and fail to take into account of the people who have tried and have failed terribly. The truth is that many people have tried and failed. They say that the online business is a very tough business that requires you to continue to work on it. Just like any other business you need to have enough patience and humility to watch the businesses grow from scratch into multi-billion empires. However many people think that just because it is an online business it can be created in a day.
These are my top two blogs of the moment, and have been for quite a while. In the next part of the “Top Internet Marketing Blogs That’ll Help You Make Money Online” series, I will look at two more bloggers that have personally helped me make money online.
