- Brainstorm to Find Out Your Niche

You don’t have to be a super blogger or you don’t have to be certified specialist on the blogging topic. All you have to do is just write posts that you think you are good at.
So let’s get to know the steps to start a blog to make money –
This tells about to do a dedicated brainstorming to find out exactly what you are good at, that you know very well of the ins and outs. This is very important and should be analyzed properly to select the best one.
So take a pen and paper or take your notebook or tab to write down all ideas that come into mind roughly. It should be more than 25 items.
Once you find the rough 25 ideas then sort it out for the next level and make the list with no more than fifteen items. In these step keep only those 15 item which you find more comfortable to work with.
Thirdly, arrange the list of 15 items on the basis of your knowledge level with those items. The item that you think that you know best, should be number one on the list. And the next best one should be number two in the list.
Now comes the next level of brainstorming where you have to cut down the list to make it a list of 5 items only. These five items should be those that you can write articles on. Keep this list somewhere safe so that in the future you can see those items if you need to.
Many people keep 10 best items to use all of them on their blogs. You can also do that on your own blog, but at the beginning, you should select only one or two to write your blog, so the SEO would take a shorter time than a blog with multiple niches.
The first step is to create a blog to flow your writing through. It is very simple to say that for making money blogging you are required to have a blog. This blog will be the base of all your online earning methods.
Yes, of course, it is possible to start a free blog to make money. Many people are doing blogging with free services.
But be warned that with free services you will not gain the full control of your blog.
The free service provider has the full control over your blog who can stop free services for you at any time. So free blogging sites are not suggested to create your blog.
If you are really serious about blogging to make money, then I would like to recommend you to go for paid blogging services with WordPress.
The content of your blog should be something that is useful and amazing to your readers. People love precise information that is worthwhile to read. So plan your content that is not only useful but amazing to grab the readers’ attention.
Your content should carry the purpose of solving a problem that a group a people is looking for. Before start writing find out what issue your post is going to solve and plan accordingly. People use search engines to get the solution to their problems.
Your writing approach should be supportive to the readers. It should make them feel the reliable source of the solution. This feeling will ensure the bonding between your blog and readers.
Whenever we read something, we are looking for something new that we didn’t know or read before.
So plan your writing that includes something that the target readers never read before.
This will ensure the confidence and trust on your blog to stick with for a long time.
Please keep the precision your blog description and write to the point. Readers get discouraged if the description is too long.
Insert artwork and pictures to get them concentrated and refreshed. Graphical presentation grabs attention and also describes a lot of information within few seconds.
With having a precise and specific description, share your feelings, experiences or anything that you think can amuse your readers.
Serious discussion with entertainment in between can have a good communication to create bonding.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is very important to get organic traffic. Use your keyword based on the main topic or the issue of your writing.
Implement the following:
- Name the post should contain the main keyword.
- Include the keyword in your post URL.
- The description should also include the keyword for better optimization.
In order to reach a large number of your target audience, it is important to create social media links to your post. Use Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter and LinkedIn.
I always prefer Facebook page, Twitter Business Page, and the amazing Pinterest to share across social networks.
Establish your blog name as a brand through providing a constant supply of quality blogging for sharing ideas with people. Once you are trusted properly you have got the authority to make money with all the ways available. This is the main concept of the whole blogging business. The more the trust and worthiness the more the possibilities of making money through it.
In this step, you are ready with your blog having a sufficient number of good posts. There are several ways to monetize a website those are explained below –
This one almost everyone uses, to monetize their blog or website. This includes Click per cost / Pay per click (PPC), Pay per view (PPV), Pay per sale (PPS). Most popular PPC networks are Adsense, Chitika, InfoLinks, Bidvertiser etc.
Depending on the advert type, bloggers get paid on the activities of their readers with those ads showing on around the site.
Affiliates earn through sharing their affiliate links to the target customer of the products. Bloggers have a great chance to place their affiliate links in front of their readers.
It is a great way of making money blogging, and many bloggers only work with this type of blog monetization.
If you have production of anything real or virtual, you can sell them through blogging. For example, as a writer, you can start writing eBooks (virtual product) and sell them to your blog readers.
Many bloggers started blogging to sell their products. Other bloggers started blogging first then entered into creating/buying (B2B) and selling products to use their authority to make money.
You can also sell services that you are proficient on. The services could be writing -copywriting, designing, proofreading, translation, training etc.
Suppose you are a good designer, you have a blog on designing where you write the designing tutorial for your readers. In that case, as a graphic design professional, you can offer paid training on designing to your blog readers and subscribers.
Or you can offer your content writing services to other bloggers who buy articles for their blogs. So this is a very effective way for bloggers to show what they are good at to sell that service to others.
You can monetize your site with posts sponsored by companies for their products reviews. Here the company is paying you to write about their products to let your readers and visitors of the blog.
But the number of sponsored posts should be very low because more sponsored posts can discourage your readers to come to your blog. It is better to disclose to readers about the sponsorship of the products and also assure them that the opinions are truly yours.
