Is it possible to make money writing articles for your blog?
There are many people who have tried it and most have failed. Yet there are other writers who not only earn a decent income from their blog, but some of them actually earn more than a full-time wage.
So what is it that they do right? Why are their blog posts so popular and how do they make money from blogging?
Well, to begin with, if you want to write articles for your blog, there are three important things that you need to consider before you start. But once you know what these are, it can kick-start your career as a blogger.
Know Your Reason For Writing Articles.
This is really important. You need to actually (and I mean literally) think really hard about why you want to write articles. Once you have your reason, then every article you write can work as a soldier for you, going out to achieve your article writing goal – as long as you know what that is.
How Are You Going to Earn Money?
There are several different ways that you can make money writing articles for your blog. You can write them to earn money from PPC advertising, or to sell a product, or to sell a service or to do affiliate marketing (or you can choose to use all of these). Once you know how you want to earn money from your blog you can then write articles that attract the most targeted readers so that you can maximise your blog income.
What Action Are You Looking For?
You need to also know what action you want your readers to take. Once they finish reading your articles, they always want to do something so you have to know what that is.
Do you want them to click on a PPC advertisement? To make a purchase? To join your email list? To read about a service you’re offering? To sign up for more information? Be sure of what it is that you want them to do and then tell them to do it.
And most importantly, don’t forget that all your articles/posts need to read like a story so that your readers keep reading. In other words, make sure every article has a beginning, a middle and an end.
