Personal Blogs – What Good Is A Site If You Can’t Monetize It?

Blogging is a long term solution for any online entrepreneur trying to get results, more exposure and to get more traffic for your internet business. If you start implementing the techniques I’m sharing with you here, it is going to help launch your career.

You can also sell space on your sites to advertisers for a fee. This allows bloggers to set their own prices. Word of caution, this sort of monetizing is offered to quality bloggers that have a large fan base. After establishing your blog site, you can always consider selling the rights to your own online blog. Once you have an established fan base, this shouldn’t prove hard to perform with selling it for ten times the price you paid in creating it.

Add images – eye candy. Also, a picture on the web IS worth a thousand words. If you’re selling a unique kind of fit for the marathoner’s running shoes, a cross-section shows how that insert benefits the runner.

Why do you want to blog in the first place? There must be a purpose or theme of your repost. What is it that you’re providing your readers with? Once you can answer this question you will have a much better starting point for your blog posts.

Having a blog helps you get the word out to prospective buyers. Since they will have had a part in giving you opinions, they will also be eager to become buyers.

Feed and care for your site on a consistent, ongoing basis. How? Begin with your blog’s appearance. Everyone thinks their baby is the cutest ever, but here is opportunity to make that a reality. Luckily, it is now easy to find a free or reasonable blogging platforms with a great deal of cool design options. Look at other sites and see what appeals to you. Create a look and first impression that will make others take notice.

As soon as you have located a blog and established more or less what it is worth, do your own due diligence to find as much information as you can. Start looking for statistics, positions (test it on Google), PR, any reviews the blog may have, etc.. Do this quickly and act on it as soon as possible. Send the owner an email if you can to find out more information (e.g. documentation, earnings, traffic stats, etc). Make sure that they are verifiable numbers and remember not to insult the operator. If the owner thinks that the blog is worth hundreds on tens of thousands and you think that it is simply worth by the hundreds, perhaps you should back off right away. If the owner is honest, then it is sure that no deal will be made. Now, if the two of you have a fair figure in your mind, then the dance begins.
