5 Important Tips to Create a Better Blog

create a Better blogBlogging is a long term thing and you need to work every day to improve your blog and make it better. You’ve seen the ads…”Make Free Money Blogging!” or “Earn Instant Money With Your Blog!”

There are legitimate ways to make money with a blog, but please lose the hype. If you genuinely want to make money with blogging, you will have to put a considerable amount of time and patience in your blog to even begin to experience profit from your efforts. A successful blog can’t be established overnight. It will take real work, time, and perseverance to reap rewards.

Below are 5 tips you should know before starting and establishing a blog

Professional layout

Firstly you want a nice and organized layout that is navigation friendly. Refrain from using a lot of flashy graphics. These will only distract your readers. People visit blogs to read them and find out what they have to offer. A straight forward professional layout with easy navigation is key for a successful blog.

Consistent Updating

Keeping your blog updated with new entries is crucial to your blogging success. The search engines love new content. If you frequently enter new high quality blog posts, the better chances you will have at ranking high in search engines, and thus creating the desired traffic.

Monetize your Blog

There are a number of ways in which you can make money with your blog. The most widely used are with Google AdSense, FeedBurner, and affiliate programs. The best known affiliate programs are Amazon, ClickBank, and Commission Junction. Also if you are in direct sales, you can make money with product reviews.

Comment on other blogs

Of course if you are going to make money with your blog, you will need traffic. Reading and commenting on other blogs that pertain to your own blog and/or niche will get you that traffic if done in the proper way. If you participate with spamming your links all over the place on blogs, this will definitely discourage any viewers from clicking on and reading your blog. Use comments the correct way and offer support, advice, and try and get to know your fellow bloggers. Your link will take care of itself from your name you use with your blogging account.

Social Marketing

Social media marketing is one of the essential technique to create a brand for your blog and drive traffic. You can socialize on forum boards, Twitter, FaceBook, and other social network sites. For me, my favorites are Facebook and Forums. Others experience success with the other social sites such as Twitter & pinterest. You must practice proper social etiquette on all the above to get the most profit out of it. Again, it all goes back to spamming. People don’t like it and as a result, will not do business with you.

Always remember, if you wish to make big money with Blogging, you need to put proper effort and time to improve your blog every day.

The above tips are the basics of using a blog and making money with it. Remember, proper socializing and monetizing is key with blogging success.

    If you want to blog for money, you have to be very clear that is just like any other conventional form of business, in the sense that same business principles apply. If you treat it as a hobby, you can’t expect to succeed.

    To succeed in online business:
    1. You need a solid, clear long-term business plan for your blog
    2. Solid, consistent and high quality content plan (because that is what internet and blogging is all about)
    3. Traffic Plan – how much traffic you need, how you will get your traffic and traffic goals with deadlines
    4. Monetization plan – Most people worry only about getting more traffic. But even more important is converting the visitors into customers. Unless you have a proper monetization strategy, there is no use getting more and more visitors to your blog.

    Most importantly, you might try hard to double or triple your traffic with perhaps minimal result. But if you put a plan in place for doubling your conversion rate, you can have more than double profits with same amount of traffic. That’s the key to success in online business.

    I’ve to differ with the first point professional layout. I’ve seen so many successful blog and all the have is a simple layout with lot’s of space to write. You just have to be hardworking and manage many things at the same time.

    We have to promote our blogs by in groups as I do new scheme called In Touched Blogger on my blog. We can get great success if we do together all of the works. Yes, the blog must look professional to have a better looks. And I agree with all of your important points.

    I think guest posting is great way to promote. We can share our content on each others blog. It is more professional when we guest post and social any content.

    I just watched a video of Darren Rowse (Problogger), talking about his success and basically saying that the reason for his success was creating great content each and every day for his blog (for 6 years!). That is how you get success! Nice tips!

    • Chuck Bartok says

      I comment daily on Blogs referencing my Niches and conversely accept and encourage Comments.
      I accept about 80% of those comments and have had 90% of my comments accepted.
      Common Sense and focusing on the Golden Rule will allow this habit to become VERY rewarding

    Great tips!

    I agree Professional layout is very important. It will help keep things easy for the reader. They should be able to read and navigate in the most easiest way possible. Trying to complicate things is a bad move.

    Many people have so many links and ads, that it just leaves a bad impression on the reader.
