11) Interact together with your Visitors
For Blogging. You now have the traffic you deserve. You have to begin interacting with your visitors. Create a daily theme such as: “Monday Money Tip” or “Picture of the Week”. Which entices your readers to look forward to each week.
Give your readers advance notice a few product, service, or topic. Which you’re going to review and then talk about later. If the President was scheduled to offer a speech then in your blog. You should state that you “will discuss the speech and give your opinion after the speech airs. Comments are going to be appreciated”.
Try your best to seek out exclusive data that not many have. Don’t disclose any confidential or secret information. Which is deemed illegal or can potentially get you into trouble. But attempt to get the scoop before everyone else does.
Such as: If your blog was about Paris Hilton (the socialite) and you had a blog entry about “Paris Hilton Getting Married”. Then it might be interesting to your viewers if you had a actual image of Paris Hilton engagement ring.
Give your best effort to dig and search the web for exclusive information. And you will possibly come up with something useful. Your viewers will appreciate this and that they show their appreciation through word-of-mouth referrals. Imagine what percentage viewers will tell their friends, family, et al. About data they only can find at your blog.
12) Make Money
Once your blog has gained some real momentum and your blog traffic is increasing. Then it’s time to start thinking about turning your traffic into profit. You have to use contextual ads, like Google Adsense or Chitika.
Contextual advertising is typically text links which use the content of your blog to publish targeted ads on your blog. The payout is typically based on a pay-per-click model. Meaning for ever click a billboard receives you are paid a small percentage of the profits. Additionally to contextual advertising. It is good to also use graphical advertising such as: BlogAds.com, Amazon.com, MammaMedia, or General Sponsored Advertising.
13) You are a Professional
You’re a professional now! What are you still doing with that freebie blog hosting service? It is time to upgrade to a existing domain hosted solution. You would like to get a web host and choose a domain name for your blog then check its availability. Select the blogging software you would like to use, such as: Squarespace.com, WordPress.org, MovableType.org, TypePad, etc.
When you have your new blog domain setup and ready for more traffic then it is time for you to announce your move on all your previous blog accounts. Your final entry to the blog should be a “move” announcement. The main title should be “Moved” and therefore the blog entry should state something like “I have a new home for my blog, please bookmark and follow the link: http://www.YourNewBlogDomainName.com”.
This way all returning visitors and new viewers should not have any problem finding your new blog domain. Plus, search engines can easily index and crawl your new blog, since your old blog should already be fashionable the search engines.
At the extent of a professional blogger you may want to team up with 1 or more other bloggers. this may create a more interesting and more powerful blog. The old saying “two heads is best than one”, more authors mean more ads and exposure because each author will have a vested like within the blog.
The idea of a team blog is to make it profitable and rewarding for all authors, while continuing to focus on the blog topic and keeping the blog interesting for visitors.
Following these blogging techniques should make your blogging experience far more fruitful. there’s no guarantee that your blog will become popular or a household name, but the trouble should at least put you one step closer. Making money online isn’t an overnight experience like many may think, but making money online is certainly a foreseeable possibility.
As well, growing popularity on the online is not an overnight experience, but through time, dedication, and persistence you’ll be rewarded with all the royalties of blogging.
