One of the questions often asked by many people is, “Can you make good money with blogging”? The answer depends from person to person. Some people are making thousands of dollars with just blogging, while others struggle for a while and leave it. It all depends on the type of blog you have and the niche you picked. Some people choose a niche with too much competition and cannot make it anywhere. So you have to be very careful if you really want to get yourself a blog that could make you money.
How to start
First, you must decide on a niche. You have to pick a niche and research the market before getting started. If you find too much competition goes to a sub-niche. For instance, ‘tips on work from home’ is a niche but ‘tips on work from home for single mothers’ is a sub niche. If you narrow down your target audience, you will have more chances to succeed.
Blog design is also important
Make sure your blog is designed in a way that is relevant to your niche. You should not go for brighter and bold colors if your target audience is between ages 40-60 years. You can learn more about colors and how they affect people on Google.
SEO is the key
Focus more on the seo in the beginning. It is the best way to start getting some traffic to your blog. Try to do keyword research and focus on keywords with less competition and more conversion.
Stay true to your audience
Provide content that is useful and relevant to your audience. If your target audience is pet owners, do not advertise the benefits of meat to them. Always post content that is relevant to your audience and provide some value to them.
Make a checklist and follow these steps and you might be able to monetize your blog soon.
