These tips aren’t the basic steps required to setting up a blog – just so you’d know; and in case you’re a beginner, quickly let’s go over the basic steps below:

  • Choosing a blogging platform: there are about 5 to 10 blogging platform available for you to choose from which the prominent ones being WordPress, Blogger and Tumblr namely. I’d definitely advocate WordPress, it’s a massive platform with tons of plugins, add-ons, themes at your disposal. So do choose WordPress, you won’t regret it!
  • Choose web hosting/domain name: as a beginner it might be tempting to go with a free hosting and domain name – I’d advise; you buy both a hosting and a domain name – you can start off on a cheap shared hosting if you’re concerned about the cost and also a domain can be really cheap, say below 5 bucks…

Even if the ugly URL( for your new blog  which you’d get doesn’t bother you – you’d be limited still, you can’t have a  fully functional money making blog on a free subdomain. So pull out your credit card and buy both now!

  • Design your WordPress blog: WordPress gives you ease and almost infinite ways to design and layout your blog. You can choose from a ton of free themes for your blog or if you want you can purchase a paid theme.

That’s that about the basics…now let’s head to the real meat, 3 actionable tips to begin making money blogging online.

#1 Select a Lucrative Niche to be in…

The first tip to creating a successful blog that you’re going to profit from is it has to be about a popular topic:

Here are top 6 top industries online right now:

  1. Dating
  2. Health & Beauty
  3. Adult
  4. Biz-Opps
  5. Coupons/Discount/Daily Deals
  6. Games

It’s safe to say all these are popular markets that appeal to a lot of people online – where people would be willing to spend money. So if you’ve developed a passion for blogging about say a “not too popular” niche like for instance “in-growth fingernails” which appeals to about a small number people online.

It’s probably not a good idea if you want to make money blogging about it as it’s not going to be lucrative.

Reason is you can only have a few posts about it and then you’re out of ideas for posts, plus the small number of people who are interested are only going to visit your blog, consume the content and never visit again because there’s nothing new to be consumed.

That’s not going to be lucrative for you as you need to convert visitors to your blog to loyal readers then ultimately to buyers of whatever products you might build in the near future and sell to them.

You can’t do that if visitors only visit once now can you?

So always select a lucrative niche! It’s absolutely important…

Now you might say – “how do I know my selected niche is lucrative?” Good question…

There are quick checks you can do to find out if your selected niche is actually going to profitable for you when you start blogging about it.

Google Keyword Planner:

If you have a gmail account, then you should sign in to your Google Adwords account and locate the Google keyword tool – it can always give you a hint if a market you’re getting into is going to be profitable.

Now for instance here are 2 online markets I have in mind – “lawn mower” and “Chinese cuisine” –

Using the G. Keyword tool – when I search for Chinese cuisine – here’s what it gives me:

Keyword Planner – Google AdWords

As you can see in the image above, the arrows are pointed to 2 things you can easily look at to gauge the profitability of any niche.

  • The average number of monthly searches
  • The suggested bid

For the Chinese cuisine market – it gets about 1k – 10k searches per month which isn’t so popular! And the suggested bid shows and proves there are advertisers selling products – with a suggested bid of £2.44 ($3.10). That connotes an expensive and almost saturated market.

Now let’s try this with the “lawn mower” market –

2Keyword Planner – Google AdWords

This is a really popular market online, getting about a million searches per month, that’s a load of traffic –also with decreased suggested bid which confirms merchants and a viable market.

So it’s a popular market which will be more lucrative than the “Chinese Cuisine” market on the long run.

Speaking about long runs – let’s go on to the next tip.

#2 Build up your Audience Base…

Right after you’ve chosen your lucrative niche, for the next 6 months you shouldn’t be concerned about making money. You need to build up an audience or readers’ base.


Ever wondered how some successful blogs have got such a cult following? Well this is how they did it –

At this stage you’re posting say 2 valuable contents per week and like I said you shouldn’t really worry about making money now.

What you want to do now is simultaneously build up an audience base on social media networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube – here’s how you do it:

  • Facebook: create a good Fb page for your blog and pick your best posts that you’ve published on your blog and spend money on ads boosting them, it’s going to get you likes for your fb page and help build your fan base on facebook.
  • Twitter: create a twitter handle for your blog and then follow and interact with your competitions – tweet your best contents and you could also use twitter ads to gain more exposure and followers on twitter.
  • Youtube: Create a youtube channel based on your blog, see if you could convert some of your best contents to videos, post them on your channel and promote it – get people to subscribe to it.

Do all these for six months slowly until you’ve built up a cult following, also you want to link your social properties together like promote your youtube videos on facebook.

Then use the last tip that’ll transcend your blog to having serious spiky traffic levels.

#3 Re-launch your Blog!


Right after six months of audience building – by now you have a fairly strong amount of readers’ base, they are going to be the catalyst of now taking your blog to the next level as they are going to be the one sharing your posts…and making the quality posts go viral which will bring spikes of traffic.

What you want to do now is have queued up for 30 days solid – top quality posts, videos – for every day of the 30 days.

This will help you achieve a top blog status with over 50 posts skyrocketing spikes of traffic – then you’re ready to make money blogging.

How to Outsource Content Creation (Article Writing Done for You) PT 5

Outsourcing Your Content Can Save You Time….

The best way to outsource content creation is to organize your topics and ideas.

Doing so will allow the writer to have a better idea of exactly what you want done.

Make sure to outline the topic of your article, so the writer can write content around your topic.

Know What You Are Looking For

In order to effectively outsource your writing, you must have an idea of what you are looking for.

This means thinking about the categories you want to include in your website.

Also think about potential topics.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Find some products that you are interested in selling
  2. Come up with a few categories to put your articles under
  3. Find keywords that are relevant to your niche
  4. Think of several potential article titles for you writer to work with

Websites That Are Great For Outsourcing Work

Finding a reliable website is important in finding freelancers to outsource your work to.

This method is a more affordable way to outsource your work.

You can also find many skilled freelancers that are possibly more proficient than you are at the job.

By hiring a freelancer, you are also saving more time to do other productive things.


UpWork is a great website to find highly skilled, experienced, and educated freelancers.

The best part is the price…

You can hire a very experienced writer to write your content for a very affordable price.

With that being said, have a budget set.

Be aware of how much you an afford to spend on this content.


This website is best if you are just looking for affordability rather than quality.

While you may get some quality content, the writers on this website are typically not Native English speakers.

This website is great for those looking for a quick 400 word article for about $2.

The writers are also only allowed to write the content.

Therefore, they can’t use any heading (h1, h2, ect.).

They also can’t attach any images.

This website is not recommended for high quality content.


This is a very popular website and the best part is the price.

For $5, you can get a good deal on content because every gig is worth $5.

With that being said, most writers will charge $5 for only about 500 words or less.

While they may be good quality writers, their are a few that may deliver less than average work.

You also are not given a lot of background of the writers you are working with.

Be sure to check the reviews as well as the person’s background in writing before you make your decision.


Explaining Your Writing Needs To Your Freelancer

It is important that your freelancer fully understands the type of content you want, the writing style you are looking for, and any other necessary details.

Instead of writing a full paragraph on everything you want, the easiest method is to record a video.

In this video, discuss everything you have provided to the freelancer to work with.

You don’t need to go into detail about every post.

Make the video short and to the point.

A great tip is to provide a script on how you would like your content to look.

Use these tips to have a better experience with your freelancer:

  • Provide a script
  • Explain your details thoroughly
  • Keep in contact with your freelancer
  • Write the first few articles for your writer to refer to

Good Content is Important For Your Website

Having high quality content on your website, especially if your website is new, is essential in adding value.

Adding good content on your website allows you to get a good start on your website.

If your website is interesting, informative, and valuable then this will reflect in your website statistics.

The longer your visitors read your articles, make a comment, and interact with your website, the more value you are giving to those visitors.

So, your content should be well written, easy to ready, and providing some sort of value.

Adding Content To a New Website

While many people may be in a hurry to start gaining money.

It is a common mistake to start filling up your website with ads, affiliate links, and unnecessary fillers.

Instead, you should provide valuable content on a regular basis for a good amount of time.

This will allow you to slowly gain rank in Google and attract more users.

Then when you have a good amount of monthly visitors, you will be more likely to start gaining money.
