Do you want to start making money online from scratch? Then you should create a high-income blog.
A blog is one of the ultimate ways to make money online. No argument about it.
In fact, more than 50% of people making money online are content creators – either via blogging or vlogging.
So, you wouldn’t be wrong if you want to take the path of creating a high-income blog to start making money online.
So, how do you go about it?
In this article, I’ll be sharing a few tips I’ve implemented in creating a high-income blog from scratch with little or no money.
It can be hard work, but it’s definitely worth it. Here’s how to go about it.
Choose a Money Niche
What I mean by a money niche is a niche where there is heavy flow of money changing hands.
You need to choose a niche with a lot of buyers or a lot of enthusiasts. People willing to pay for something.
Without having a niche with a lot of buyers, making money online would be a completely frustrating experience for you.
Just imagine building a blog about light switches! A disaster right?
So, do your research to find out where the money currently is, or where the money is flowing to.
Research, research, research. Use tools such as Keyword planner, Ubersuggest, SEMrush, etc to find the right niche for making money.
Remember, if you find the right mine, you’ll definitely find the gold.
Build a Responsive Audience
Want to sell something to your audience? Then get them prepped for it.
You have to encourage responsive behavior long before you start offering something for sale.
You could use quizzes, optin forms, comment requests, or email correspondence to encourage responsive behavior.
Remember that the number of your audience doesn’t matter more than how engaged they are.
I remember trying to sell an ebook, and I offered part of it for free. Lots of people got the free copy and a lot of them came back to get the full version.
This worked because I got them to move in the first place, and gave them a taste of what they could get for a token.
And it worked.
Find a Fast-selling Product
What are people buying right now in your niche?
Subscriptions? eBooks? Video courses? Software?
You have to find the sauce.
A fast-selling Product is one that has the least inhibition in the minds of your customers.
Do your potential customers have to think long and hard before making a buying decision? If yes, then that’s a bad product.
A fast-selling Product ticks the fancy of your customers and reinforces their beliefs.
Does it make sense to buy a hamper at Christmas? Oh yes, absolutely!
Why? Because you’re offering them what they really want at the moment and at the best price.
Do the same for your offers and you would have a fast-selling product.
Use Social Media to Pull in Free Traffic
I’ve discovered that social media when done right can pull in a very responsive and engaged audience.
If you want to build a high-income blog, then you need to employ different strategies.
Instead of waiting for customers to come to you, you can go to them. Instead of waiting for buyers to find you, you can go out and find them.
There are a lot of genius ways to use social media to pull in traffic, even if you don’t have money.
All you have to do is find clusters of people in your niche with problems.
There are millions of people on social media with problems, and the good thing about them is that they are mostly vocal about their problems via comments, groups and other discussion points.
All you have to do is find the right clusters and start marketing your solution to them.
Don’t Stop Selling
Selling is not a crime, and you shouldn’t be ashamed to sell a product you believe in.
In fact, let me tell you without mincing words. If you want to make good money online, then you have to start selling something as soon as possible.
And don’t stop.
For every new blog I launch, the first thing on my mind is, ‘what do I sell on this blog?’ ‘What is the right product for this type of audience?’ and ‘how do I go about selling on this blog?’
Having a blog is not a call to write your way to penury. Having a blog doesn’t mean that you should ignore your financial goals either.
You must find a way to attract and keep the right audience, while achieving your financial objectives.
And the best way to do that is to find something valuable to sell, and never stop selling.
