There are a million and one ways to make money part time. And in this economy who doesn’t need a little extra (or a lot of extra) cash in their pocket! That’s why I’ve decided to start a series of articles where I lay out the pro’s and con’s of different kinds of part time businesses that you can do with a limited up front investment and in your spare time.
If you want to succeed with blogging, you need to make sure that you know what you are doing. Take the time before you start your blog to do research, so that you can make sure to get out of it what you want. Read as much as you can on the subject, and be 100% certain that you have all the knowledge that you need.
Try and keep a variety in your blog posts and make them as different from each other as possible. Try and avoid similar titles for your posts and keep them simple. Also, make sure that the URL of your blog is also short and simple and does not have any random characters.
Hundreds of events happen every year. Make sure that you are sending an email newsletter of your Design to all of your subscribers, and other friends. Along with increasing the exposure, it will also increase the interest rate of people in your blog.
Fresh Content – Let’s face it, there is not one person that wants to visit a boring blog that is never updated. You want to be sure to post new content to it daily or at least twice a week. The best way to get this done is to simply write a bunch of posts at once so that you already have them. Then just update your blog with the new content daily or two times a week.
Engaging online blogs will not only encourage readers to come back but will also ensure that they invite their friends to check out the blog to. This is great – social sharing of your blog posts can make them go viral and make your reader count increase instantly. As long as you are providing them with a reason to come back related to the purpose of your blog then you will find success.
Profitability. Don’t pick something that’s hard to make money online. “Light switches” will take years longer to make money with than “credit cards” or even “fix your credit”. Finance is almost always easy to monetize.
You can skim the headlines and only read the ones that jump out at you or save others for later. This gives you complete control over what you read. It’s also possible to search blogs and old archives of blogs when you’re looking for something in specific that might help you in the game.
