5 tips on how to make money from business blogs

Blogs, that are emerging as an integral part of many business websites, were earlier not taken more than tools to sing praises of company products and services. But if employed smartly, blogs can also bring in some money.

GIVING A business virtual presence with a website has been in vogue for sometime now and considered one of the must-have elements for growth. But the trend of adding a blog to a business website has also emerged at the same time and is steadily gaining popularity amongst entrepreneurs. Smart Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) are using their blogs to declare their market strategies. They have made it their mouthpiece to interact with their clients and promote their product line and do much more. Interacting with clients and customers is surely a money-puller method. And it is the most common and palpable reason behind having blogs. A little twist and you can evolve ways to use blogs or web-logs as money spinners.

Although, interacting with customers and declaring your market plans are also part of making money via business blogs, but the virtual pitch cannot be raised without other measures that we are going to talk about. Let your blog do its due on the virtual pitch with these tips. In a nutshell, use your business blog to bring in a little cash too. The following few steps can turn your blog into a cash mint.

  1. Selling advertising space on your blog.You can monetise from your blog by selling advertising space. This is one of the commonest ways of utilising a blog to generate income. Things become more simple when you have got already a well-known blog or the one that is a well-received unique source.

But if you are a new into enterprise blogging and have a lesser-known blog, it would be better to use services like Google’s AdSense or BlogAds. These services lend bloggers support to establish ad programmes.

AdSense — which allows you to choose several ads that match the content of your blog — pays you under pay-per-click programme. It examines as to how many readers clicked on the ads placed on your blog for further information.

  1. Helping sell others’ products.You can use your blog to help sell others’ products by selecting upon affiliate programmes available on the web. This can be a good click-through opportunity that promises scope for more bucks. Affiliate programme is the ideal way to make your web-log profitable and is an affiliate marketing initiative. Affiliate marketing is a kind of online programme used by a website for driving traffic to another. In return the website which has used it for other one gets paid. There are number of web affiliate programmes available on the web. You can select programmes that suit you and your blog. These programmes enable your blog to serve as a channel between readers and online sites offering multiple goods and services. One popular choice can be Amazon.com.

Some other affiliate programmes include Google’s Cost Per Action, ClickAffiliate.com, Games Warehouse Affliate, BidVertiser, eBrandz, eAffiliatez and QuickBooker, among others.

  1. Soliciting contributions.Helping sell others’ products or taking shelter under affiliate programme does really play a crucial role when online money is concerned. But hawking goods and services does not alone work on the blog. For blog-related income opportunities, you have to use the strength of your loyal readers. You have to rely on their kindness and can simply ask them for contributions. Suppose, for example, your business blog supports a cause or comes out for an issue in fashion—we mean if your blog keeps on raising voice on tax reforms, a fashion trend, a political controversy, health care or topics like that—you can ask your readers for their support. Even though you’ve earned loyal followers who like reading what you have to say, they may like to underwrite their loyalty with a little financial help.

You can easily establish an on-site contribution collection button with programmes like PayPal to solicit their contributions.

  1. Use your blog to market your services. It is an acknowledged fact that blogs have become soapbox on the Internet where you can shout your opinions or do a little more than that. But besides your opinions, it can turn out to be a great tool to market your services. You may write blogs about the kind of services you offer, tell your readers the benefits of your services and hence leave an impression on them about your product/service line.

But while blogging what you have to keep in mind is that you are never cryptic about whatever you say either about your services or about your marketing strategies. Explain everything at length that demonstrates your strategies, abilities and perspectives on particular product or market issues. When your customers will read it, they will come to know at length about your services and will have least doubts. It will help you win more customers. And more customers mean more business. And more business means more money.

  1. Blog to build a rapport with your existing customers.Never distance from your customers, or business will distance from you.

    Seems like an old adage, doesn’t it? But it can simply be applied in the case of business blog. When you have got a blog, try regularly to communicate with existing or new clients using a blog post. Take every opportunity that your blog lends you to come closer with them. Inform them about whatever your business does, what are the upcoming plans with regard to services, and how your business can serve them better, etc. In simple words, if you will show proximity to your customers, they will show proximity to your business. It will help you tap new customers as well.
These are simple steps for which you need not have hardcore technical expertise to handle. You can bring them is use and add more to your treasury. After all drawing out money from every possible source is what a business is generally aimed at. Moreover, it will enhance traffic on your website, helping your business become popular.

How To Build Traffic To Your Blog

Setting up a blog is easy but maintaining and promoting it in search engines needs specialized skills. You need to understand how blog functions and in what ways it can be promoted successfully to generate instant and constant stream of traffic.

Whenever you update or add posts to your blog, you can ping to let services (designed specifically for connecting blogs.) know your blog content have changed since last update. This is like telling others that you have changed. It is seen that pinging increases traffic to your blog.

With Wordpress, checking for updates in your blog is done automatically and the changes are reflected usually by moving you blog links on top of bloggers blogroll list. This way you get more clicks to your blog.

If you want to increase more traffic to your blog, you can install additional pinging services. Its seen that pinging frequently increase traffic to your blog. Most of the blogging software comes with at leas one ping updates which pings every time you add a new post; but if you want to ping even if you edit your post to update it, you need to install additional plug-ins.

Wordpress bloggers can add additional update ping services by simply login to there account and adding more update services in their list present at the bottom of the sub-sub menu Writing tab under Option menu. A long list if services to be added can be found here at http://elliottback.com/wp/archives/2004/11/21/a-list-of-rpc-and-rpc2-to-ping/ .

Besides pinging services, you will also need to submit your Rss feeds to various directories and search engines to increase traffic to your blog. One advanced tip (often missed) while making your Rss feeds is to carefully select keywords which are high on traffic but low in competition and use them in the text of the feeds. Also update your feeds more often to increase your chance of being found in the SERPs.

Nothing else can beat the power of adding keyword rich contents to your blog frequently. This has the major impact in attracting quality traffic to your website as more and more posts from your blog find their way into the search results. Usually it is seen that blogging frequency is most when you have newly installed your blog and after 2-3 months of blogging the frequency of blogging tends to decrease. So, it is the continual efforts that will get your blog the much-deserved traffic.

Happy Blogging!!

No doubt, if you’ve done any research on how to make extra money, then you’ve heard the words ‘affiliate marketing.’ Affiliate marketing typically involves having a website that has links to relevant affiliate programs, allowing you to make a little money from the traffic that is already visiting your site.

Or, affiliate marketing involves using pay per click ads to drive traffic to the affiliate program page. Although this method doesn’t require you to have a website, it’s generally not a good method for a beginner to get involved in, because it can get expensive in a hurry.

Once you have your likely keywords picked out, you will write articles, using the keywords in the titles and in the article body. You will link to the affiliate program from the article and also from your author resource box.

Most article directories allow you to have four links- two in the article and two in your author resource. Try to use relevant linking text, text that the search engines will gleefully gobble up.

Different Ways To Make Money Using Your Blog

1. The blog can be used as a consultant. This work is quite simple. Information is provided on a specific topic and then to sell the service special personal attention is provided to the blog visitors in order to enable them to apply the teaching to their personal situation. Fee charged for the consulting work is usually hourly based .I have also seen some of the expertise blog consultants getting signed up by the companies. One thing I would like to clear is that there are not bloggers only who blog about blogging but there are different bloggers like marketing bloggers, photography bloggers also who offer specialized consulting services.

2. It is becoming a new trend that the books are now being written by the bloggers. Book publishers approach bloggers to write books for them.

3. There is an opportunity provided to earn money by peaking out .Normally the bloggers do not have to speak and they spend all their time writing for the blogs only. But here a chance is provided to get paid out for speaking if they are availed to speak in hose and in organizations.

4. Money can be enchased by using blog as a training center. Special training courses can be run for the readers of the blog. They direct the blog traffic to training online or offline even.

5. Money can be pocketed in by writing also. The knowledge and expertise of the bloggers get themselves approaches by the magazines, newspapers or sometimes other blogs also. Thus they can play the part of a regular staff writer or one time paid ones only.

6. As the opportunities get opened up for earning by other means then the blog can be used to sell other things and services also .It comes as a result of increased viewership of the blog like blogs by lawyers can be used to give medical advices and other blogs keep an eye on the share market position also.

7. Blogs works out to be an excellent source for e-selling. I have come across number of cases where blogs are being used to create memberships, to create e-books and software relating to their own niches.

8. It does wonders in launching real jobs. Your profile and expertise should be of the kind to get you noticed by the blog community and they should see you as a privilege to their staff.

Rapidshare has been an excellent tool for sharing large files. Recently users have discovered ways of bypassing the download limits and skipping the waiting time. Here are a description of these methods.

These are more advanced and may require additional software or hardware, but you should check them out when you are done with other easier methods:

RapidShare Hack: NIC tricks and MAC cloning to bypass Rapidshare download limit

Rapidshare traces the users IP address to limit each user to a certain amount of downloading per day. To get around this, you need to show the rapidshare

a different IP address.
Here are some methods for doing this:

1. Short-Out the javascript:
1. Goto the page you want to download
2. Select FREE button
3. In the address bar put the following: javascript:alert(c=0)
4. Click OK
5. Click OK to the pop-up box
6. Enter the captcha
7. Download Your File

2. Request a new IP address from your ISP server.
Here’s how to do it in windows:
1. Click Start
2. Click run
3. In the run box type cmd.exe and click OK
4. When the command prompt opens type the following. ENTER after each new line.
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

5. Erase your cookies in whatever browser you are using.
6. Try the rapidshare download again.

Frequently you will be assigned a new IP address when this happens. Sometime you will, sometimes you will not. If you are on a fixed IP address, this method will not work. If this works for you, you may want to save the above commands into a batch file, and just run it when you need it.

3. Use a proxy with SwitchProxy and Firefox
1. Download and install Firefox if you have not already.
2. Download and install SwitchProxy
3. Google for free proxies
4. When you hit your download limit, clean your cookies and change your proxy

4. Use an anonymous service:
Running your system through the tor network should in theory work; however, it is difficult to use and setup. Plus, you allow others to run their evil deeds through your system as well by using this system. Anonymizer 2005 is inexpensive, easy to use, but not free. Other pay services would likely work as well.

5. You can use a bookmarklet to stop your wait times:

1. Open IE
2. Right Click On This Link
3. Select Add to Favorites
4. Select Yes to the warning that the bookmark may be unsafe.
5. Name it “RapidShare No Wait”
6. Click on the Links folder (if you want to display it in your IE toolbar)
7. Click OK
8. You may need to close and reopen IE to see it
9. Goto rapidshare and click the bookmarklet when you are forced to wait

Make money with Google AdSense

Google AdSense is the Google program where you can host pay-per-click ads on your Web site. When someone clicks an ad, you earn money. Simple as that.

Is it really as easy to make money with Google AdSense as many would lead you to believe? Now that I've become heavily involved with managing Google AdSense programs for my clients, I can see it's not all play and no work.

Unfortunately, a lot of people bought into the idea that there was a lot of easy money to be made and they are now finding out they aren't making nearly as much as they thought they would. Additionally, Google has a lot of prohibited practices when it comes to AdSense, and too many Webmasters are finding out they violated Google's policies after the fact - often because they never bothered to read the AdSense policies in the first place.

Webmasters must not only comply with AdSense policies, but their web sites must also comply with Google's webmaster policies.

Dealing with Competitors

If you offer products or services on you Web site, the first thing you'll notice when you begin hosting PPC Advertising Networks is that many of the ads are coming from your competitors. Therefore, you'll want to put ads on pages that aren't earning you any money, or do like I did and not put ads on your site until you're so busy anyway you'd rather make a few dollars off of your competitors than to continue turning business away with nothing to show for it.

Google AdSense allows you to specify up to 200 URLs for sites you want to bar from placing ads on your pages. The problem is that most times you won't know the competitors are out there until their ads appear.

Google Money Making Ad Options

Google offers three ways to make money from them:
  • Google AdSense for Content - A variety of size and shape ads for placing in your content are available. These can be text or image ads or both - you specify what you'll allow. Ad units are full ads. Link units are simply a strip of text links that your visitors might want to click. Google allows you to put up to 3 Ad Units and 1 Link unit on each page of your Web site, provided you follow its policies - both for AdSense and for Webmasters.
  • Google AdSense for Search - This places a search box on your Web site. When a user enters a term and conducts a search, a search results page opens, that hosts more pay-per-click ads. You can customize the color scheme of the search results page to harmonize with your web site.
  • Google Referrals - Here you make money by referring visitors to use a Google product, like AdSense, AdWords, the Google Toolbar and other Google software. Just like Google AdSense for Content and AdSense for Search, Google generates the code that you paste into the desired location on your web page. You can choose from a wide variety of buttons and text links of different colors. As an example of how Google Referrals works, if someone goes to your site and clicks the link and signs up for an AdSense account, when that person earns a $100 from Google AdSense and receives a payout from Google, you'll also receive $100 for referring them. This is a great idea to me, because you can be the world's worst Google AdSense advertiser, but if an ad dynamo happens to visit your site and uses your referral link, you can make money anyway!

Google AdSense Payments

Google will not issue an AdSense payment until your earnings exceed $100. Unfortunately, there are loads of Google AdSense Forum entries about Web site operators who accumulated $90 or more in click through earnings only to get banned from Google and not get paid anything at all before they ever reached $100. This may be because Google doesn't take a close look to see if you're complying with their guidelines until it comes time to pay you. So yes, there's a lot more to the story than meets the eye.

Other Programs Besides AdSense

Yahoo and MSN have similar programs, although those programs aren't as well-developed as Google AdSense and there aren't as many available advertisers to display ads on your site. The fundamentals for making money are the same. You still need plenty of traffic, you still need high-paying ads, and you still need to design your site to harmonize with the ads to get people to click.

Your topics should be such that argument can take place and others have a chance to give their opinion and agree or disagree with others. Your posts should have some substance so conversation can take place.

* When replying to someone's message try and upload a picture/photo (avoid copyrighted photos) which are somewhat relevant to the discussion that you are responding to.
