Best WordPress theme for your blog.
If you already decide to start your blog to make money from home, you will need to decide whether go for a free or paid blog, my answer here before you ask is go for a paid platform and WordPress will be my option, you will own your own website; with a free blog whether WordPress, Blogger or other will own your blog.
If you want to start your website with a blog, go for a paid theme, and the reasons to go for it; it’s because you will get more options to work on the theme, you can work on the fonts, color and appearance of your blog depending of the theme you buy.
There will be two options here:
- You can get someone else to set up your website for you.
- You can learn how to set up your website for yourself, my recommendation here will be to sign up for the 10 free lesson from Wealthy Affiliate.
How to write content for your website.
Once you buy your website theme, you need to start writing content for you blog, don’t worry if at the beginning you’re not an expert, you will learn to write great value for your blog.
You will need to know your audience, listen to what problems they have on your niche:
- if your niche is about solving sleeping problems, go to forums or to Facebook groups where people talk about their problem to find some solutions.
- Write down the problem, and write content about the solutions you have for those problems.
- If you take part of those forums or Facebook groups, help people to solve their problems with your ideas, never share on those groups any link to an affiliate product or to any link to your blog, as by doing this you can be consider as a spammer and they might take you out from the group.
- By helping other to solve their problems on these groups you will be consider as an authority on the topic and people will send you some private messages to find out where can they know more about you and about what you talk about, then give them your blog link on a private message, or let them know about your own Facebook page where they can find your website link.
How to get traffic on your blog.
As a final step to start making money from your blog you will need to get traffic on your blog.
Once you get some great value content on your blog is time to work on the next step, get your client to read your blog.
This step seems to be the hardest step to succeed on the internet these days, as you and your blog will compete with many more blogs on your niche.
This is the reason why writing great value content will help you to stand out from your competence and will point to you as an authority on your niche.
Get social, spread the word, let the world knows you’re there to help them to solve their problem.
Don’t be shy, your readers will help you to know if your blog content is well written or not, you need to start at some point.
You will get comments that will lead you to write more content, answer your readers questions and write more content to help them to find the right product they’re looking for to solve their problem.
Share, share your content! we all need it, we need to read it!.
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google +, LinkedIn, Pinterest, you have Social Media to help you to get to your audience and your client!
I hope to help you to get ready to start writing your own blog to make money from home, if you’re already have a blog and you’re not getting the results you want yet, remember to succeed on your blog you will need to work hard and smart, you might want to change some strategies, or change the way you write your blog content.
Listen to your client, and write your content with your client in your mind, the more you help them the more visits your blog will get and the more buys from your affiliate links you’ll get.
