    Hi Donna,
    I am yet to find a good auto-responder. Although I am using MailChimp free version but I don’t think I have it properly configured. I have also read that building a list is crucial to make money out of your blog but frankly speaking I am far away from doing that. I am going to focus on it more.
    Thanks for this great article.

    Hi Donna, excellent tips on making money from a blog.

    While starting a blog is as easy as 1, 2, 3 but making money from it is definitely not. You’ll need a proper monetization strategy and content marketing plan to build loyal audience around your blog.

    It also depends on the kind of industry you are in and the type of website you want to build. The money you make will be different depending upon the type of your site: is it micro niche site or are you looking to build an authority site? If you’ve a clear agenda about what type of site you’re going to create, it gets easier for you to make money from your blog in the long run.

    Don’t look for shortcuts and focus on building audience from day 1 irrespective of what industry you are in. The only way to build a profitable blog is to know your target audience well and find out what they truly wants.

    Another important thing to consider before making money from a blog is to pick the right monetization strategy. If you want to make money even while sleeping, then focus on selling your own products, membership sites or promoting affiliate products. For beginners, it’s better to start offering services as it gives them the ability to make money quickly.

    Thanks for the post Donna, keep rocking.

    Awesome piece, Donna.

    If I’m to choose a new business to do again, I will still start with blogging. The reason is because it opens the door to all manner of opportunities.

    Having your own media body is something worth celebrating. And making money off it makes it even more fun.

    Thanks for sharing.

    For any new blogger looking out to make a mark, it is important to follow the pattern. For a new domain, it could get hard to actually rank for competitive keywords. For those situations, one can pay all the attention to email marketing, SEM and direct selling.

    If they get a good enough DA/PA then they can start to rank and target the keywords.

    Thank you for the awesome post. keep up the good wor 🙂

    Hello maam,
    Very well explained. As far as blogging is concerned, 90% of blogs are built to make money and yes you need a systematic approach to make it work.

    Email marketing is very important and the common notion that “why should I start?”. “I’m new who will subscribe me?” and these things are the #1 killer in the growth of list building. I’ve been there, done that.

    I wish every newbie understands the benefits of link building, sooner than later.

    Thanks for educating bloggers in this direction.

    Best regards,

Back in the days, setting up a blog can be a lot of stress, but today one can easily setup a blog in minutes with a few clicks. But the point here is not just setting up a blog, but making money from it. That’s where you need to invest to learn the ropes of making money. For example, you cannot just place banners and stuff and expects clicks to start making money, there are blogging best practices and formulas to get you up and running.

    However, I love the tips your presented. Good job!

    Donna this is a sensational post 😉 Excellent soup to nuts guide. Amazes me how bloggers expect to make money blogging but don’t want to spend a dime. Businesses require an investment. The first being to buy your domain and hosting and to get on WordPress dot org. So glad you mentioned that because more bloggers need to wake up to this fact.

      Hi Vishwajeet

      There are very many ways to monetize your blog.

      But when you first start a blog you have to make sure that those monetization schemes are built into it.

      So you have to decide what kind of products and services to sell and then feature those in your content and in your sales links.

      There are so many ways to go with this.

      That’s one of the big reasons that is important to hire a good coach or mentor to avoid so much pain and cost with the tedious and usually dead-end trial-and-error method.

    Hi Donna,

    Great post on making money on a blog.

    I think the best tip is #4: “Step 4 – Consider the costs involved and commit to spending money to build your business. If you don’t want to spend any money, I’d suggest you get a job, save some for the purpose of starting your blog, then come back to this article.

    For some reason many new people coming online still think everything is free and instant.

    Many need to read this post over and over.

    Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.

      Hi Monna

      Yeah I don’t know where people get this impression that it doesn’t cost money to run a blogging business online.

      Every business costs money for investment, consulting, advertising etc..

      I guess it’s because it’s so much cheaper to run a business online than offline brick and mortar.

      That’s true.

      But you still have to incur some expenses.

      If you try to get away from that then you won’t have much of a chance of succeeding.
