The idea of this post was that blogging could be more interesting if you could earn some money from it as fast as possible.

So the next hot questions will be …. what to do to make money blogging right away?
If you have tried to seek for answers on this may be you will get disappointed because many will suggest you not to monetize as early as you launch blog on public.
If you read further on many successful bloggers story you might end up in one conclusion, it’s not an overnight success.
But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make money from a new blog earlier…..
Wondering why? Let’s read more …..
How to Make Money From New Blog?
As I mentioned earlier in this post, blogging will be more interesting if you can start to make money from a new blog as fast as possible.
One of the most common activity is begin to place pay per click ads on their blog before launching it and hope to make tons of money when they do launch it.
Will that works?
The point is not a matter of pay per click ads or what methods you use. It’s a matter of how you can find a targeted visitors that interested with what you offers. Or how you can change visitors into buyers through your contents.
Let’s find out how that could be happen
# Have a Plan
Having a blog and making updates is not a plan. Make a real one. Here is for example :
If you like to start a new blog take these considerations into your blogging plan :
What is your minimum post length? (300 words is believe the best minimum limit for a single article updates in term of SEO). Once you have decided it, try your best to keep that quality. You won’t find it hard if that is your passion. It’s always enjoyable to write about your passion ….
How often you will updates your blog contents? Don’t be afraid to post less. Posting less will give you enough time to provide quality articles.
You shouldn’t be afraid to post on different frequency for your first month of blogging. Let’s say you are posting 9 articles in the first month then the next month you are just posting 1 article in a week. If you can maintain the quality, those article will be functioned as your landing page to capture visitor attention.
# Decide Niche That Become Your Passion
Plan is the first step. After you have one, then you can decide what is your passion. Finding your true passion on blog is crucial to measure whether you will survive the long term or not. It will correlate with content updates in the end.
Make sure you love the niche you have chosen to assure constant updates to every single blog visitors.
# Share Story as Your First Month Articles
Everyone can share a story ….
Story is the smartest ways in capture readers attention to your blog contents. So if you think you have a lot of things to write in your first month of blogging, fill it with story of your own experiences.
Readers like to know what problems do you have and how do you solve it. They will learn from you.
# Understand On-Page SEO (search engine optimization)
When you are new, you are going to need visitors to come to your blog. For newbie, search engine is one of your best friends.
Make sure all of your new contents are SEO friendly.
# Friends are Your Arsenal
Once you have published your blog contents, you are going to need some help. Ask for it … you will be amazed how bloggers like to help each other.
Or ask for help from your offline friends
Friends like helping friends. Friends as your networks will be easily take a visit and build a constant traffic to your new blog. Not just that, friends usually leave comments or other social signals.
Social signals is important to a new blog to show other visitors that your blog has the value to read or any other way to enjoy your contents.
# Capture Your Very First Visitors
This is why quality content important. Your very first visitors are your gateway to massive promotion. Once you have quality article and social signals proof on your new contents there will be high possibility your every visitors (not your friends :D) will pay attention on your blog contents.
# Make a Massive Content Marketing
As I mentioned about social signals, it could drive your contents goes more viral. Existing social signals indicate value to other new visitors. There is a chance they’ll do the same (shares, likes, tweets, comments, or else) if they see your posts already have established social signals.
But what methods are best for content marketing?
The best methods is make a post going viral and blog commenting. Do your best at these two methods as your primary content marketing strategy. It’s free and worthy.
# Do Smart Selling Ads
I do two kind of promotion here. The first is banner and the second is text advertisement.
Banner ads is old fashion style promotion. The question is …. does it really works? Yes it does. But you have to understand that visitors will do click and buy through your banner ads if the offers meet their needs. So it just a matter of “the right visitors at the right time”.
The second is the text advertisements. I started to implement this method after six months blogging. The theory is just simple, you put a persuasive keyword ads at some part of your blog contents and put the hyperlink (sponsors link or affiliate link) inside it. Just take a look at sample below :
Save your time building link
Smart isn’t it?
Readers won’t bother because it’s not a banner that distract the enjoyment of reading your posts. And readers will accept the links because you have added “Ads” which mean you offer a product of your sponsors.
I deemed this method more effective than just put affiliate banners inside your blog contents.
# Prepare Your Blog to Make Money from It
May be any of you start asking … does it really works?
I need you to understand that make money from new blog is possible but the amount of money you will earn depends on many aspect.
The best ways to earn is selling something (your product or service and affiliate marketing). Selling things usually have good amount of revenue than other methods. Making sales won’t depend on the amount of monthly traffic, you might get 200% profits selling one items to your small amount of visitors in a month.
All the tips here are to give you better chance to make it happen.
Just remember that visitor is your potential costumer but no one ever like to force buying on things, so do smart marketing from your blog contents. The reason most bloggers don’t make money is that they don’t think of their blog as a businesses. Blogs almost never make money. It’s businesses that do their marketing primarily via blogging that make money.
Once again, I just like to share you that it is possible to make money from new blog as fast as possible. But never expect you will get a lot of money from it. May be it’s not much but you’ll earn if you know how to do it right from your blog contents.
