First of all I want to make sure that everyone understands what a blog is. In the most lament terms, a blog is a website that an individual updates with content often called “blog posts”. When you go to someone’s blog it is very normal to see the most updated post on the very top. People that have a blog and add content are called “bloggers”, and when they are updating a blog they are said to be “blogging”. As we go further down this rabbit hole, you will see that a blog can make you money online.

You can create resource lists that will help your readers find information on your niche. You can also create lists of different ways to accomplish a goal in a niche, like “5 Ways to Drive Traffic to Your Sales Letter.” The possibilities are endless.

To counteract advice they disagree with. The A-listers spoke about methods to get social traffic, lots of internet marketers disagreed with that so they created their own blogs on the importance to get search engine traffic. For every opinion their are infinite agreements so eventually their will be new Follow me spouting new methods!

Next, find some place to publish your blog. There are a number of sites both paying online blogs and free that give bloggers a chance to publish their material. You may also want to simply set up your blog on your web site, especially if you already have an active web site.

After interviewing at the aforementioned store, I realized they had a large clientele of happy loyal customers including the local TV station, hospital, and other businesses. Yet, even with these connections, they still had a really crappy reputation. Why? Because no one managed it. Their online and offline reputation was out of control, from the BBB to industry specific review sites and even Google. It was affecting sales big time. And taking control of your online presence and reputation is a free way to increase sales long-term. But it won’t happen overnight.

Well to be honest there are a few rotten apples in the bushel, but aren’t there always? Some people of course are not happy with the way technology is changing lives and that’s ok, that’s their opinion. Usually those who aren’t happy with it don’t blog.

You must be consistent! A blog that makes money isn’t something that you can just throw up and then ignore for a week or a month. You must be consistent and update a lot so that people keep coming back and your traffic stays where it needs to be.
