Yes, you can make money just writing online. You can write about whatever you want but below are a couple of suggestions:
- Product Reviews.
- Raising Kids.
- Military Life.
- Stock Investing.
- Real Estate Investing.
- Dogs, Cats, Birds, Etc…
- The Weather.
You get the picture, just about anything you want to write about there is probably someone out there that wants to read about it. Of course, it is helpful to pick something that will actually attract people and that has a sufficient interest to get good visitor numbers to your site.
First of all, I am going to assume you already have a website. If not, I have other articles on my site you can to go for ideas on where and how to build a site. Including this link that will let you build a site in 30 seconds!
Once you start your blog and get a number of useful posts on it you need to start finding readers. One thing you should do is make sure your site is search engine optimized (SEO), some of my other articles talk about that on the site.
Next you should begin to promote yourself online. The easiest way to do that is through social media, other blogs and forums. You can do a quick search on google to find forums and blogs that are similar to yours (or not). Many bloggers will let you guest write on their blog with a link back to your blog.
Where does your money come from?
- Advertisement banners.
- Think Google Adsense.
- Just search for companies that will put advertisements on your site and pay you for views or clicks.
- Product advertisements.
- com offers a number of products you can advertise on your site. It is even better if those products relate to your site. If your blog is about camera’s then place those types of products on your site for purchase.
- Again, you can search the internet for other vendors.
- Affiliate programs.
- There are many different types of affiliate programs you can add to your site. As above I would recommend ones that relate to your blog.
Below is a link to a site that will help you learn how to advertise and build a site.
