Taking a deep breath and relaxing is a good way to shorten your path to quality writing.
Learning how to make money with a blog for beginners is often a journey filled with lots of hard work, late nights and small or none existent paychecks.
Understand top money making blogs do not just slap up some copy with some pictures, a link to a YouTube video and some off handed copy. In order to start pulling in the viewers and sales you provide solutions to problems. Your readers trust you because of this and begin to place orders.
This requires you climb a learning curve. It requires
- Writing interesting, engaging, quality posts.

- Having an SEO strategy that continually builds back links in an organic fashion.
Paying attention to your copy is how you make money.

This means what you give away is often of more value that what your competition is selling. Further on in this post I give you several things you can do today that will set you head and shoulders above what most of your competition is doing. Those things prove daily what they are worth to many top earning bloggers.
How Much Money Can You Make Blogging?
How much money can you make blogging? Some bloggers make 7 figures.
Some bloggers make 7 figures a month.
No clearly, not everyone will. Like everything else on line there are a few who are exceptional and many who try, get tired or bored and quit.
The question that you really want answered is how much money you, yourself, can make. As with everything else that depends on how hard you work and the lengths you go to in order to get the knowledge you need to do it right.
Seven figures is the exception, but hardly a case of there only being two or three who are doing it. It is a growing club, glad to say.
A seriously profitable blog is very much within the grasp of the average person, in my opinion. I say that because lots of blogging sites that pay the mortgage, the car payment or both are not uncommon.
To make money WordPress is a must. Again, that is my opinion. All the research I have done indicates that Google’s search spiders love WordPress because it efficiently indexes pages created with it.
Reasons for using WordPress include:
- Google loves it.
- Easy to use for the beginner.
- Wide array of widgets, and add ons to help you customize it.
- Wide array of SEO and copy writing tools to help you create effective, interesting posts.
- It is free.
- Many of the add ons are free as their developers use add ons to demonstrate their coding talents.
- Largest community of users so you have lots of depth when asking questions.
Ways To Come Up With Content
You begin by asking yourself what you will blog about.
You write about:
- Something you know about
- Something you learn about so that you can blog about it.
Invest, Learn, Teach
Investing in learning the skills you need to successfuly blog is a given.
By investing in yourself and your knowledge, you are separating yourself from the 99% who ‘wish’ to be successful by becoming someone who does the things the successful blogger does. Learning is how you become an expert to those who have not.
You invest time, money or both into mastering skills and knowledge you do not currently have.
Because you invest, you are able to learn things you don’t currently know. Learning essential skills is how you ensure you are profitable.
Because you have invested time and money to learn new skills, you now write blog posts teaching your readers what you have learned.
This is one way you provide value up front for your readers.
Obviously, you don’t throw everything you know out there for free, but there are more than enough skills sets out there for you to pull them together in convenient form for your readers.
Ask yourself how many free PDFs or PDFs you have taking up space on your hard drive. Each and every one of them represents good information about which you can write and perhaps solve some problem one or more of your readers may have.
Read, Learn, Teach
On your way home, stop off by the local bookstore. Look at the titles on the recent best sellers list for business books. Leaders are readers and you need to so do so. While you are reading make a note of any top ten or so lists it may go over.
Top ten lists are awesome for quick blog posts.
You can do a book review and use any top ten or so lists discussed in the book as a bullet list of things to talk about in your review of the book. You can also just use the list as a jumping off point for a blog post not book related.
