Blogging Success: 3 Keys to a Profitable Blog

By Angela Booth

You can turn a blog into an entire home business. Many people have already done so, and you’ve heard their success stories online. Most of them didn’t reach their success overnight. They started exactly where you are.

Over the past 10 years I’ve created many blogs, and I found three keys to profitable blogging.

Here they are.

1. Keep Creating (Good) Content Which Gets Results

People reach your site by finding your content online, and this means that you need to create new material regularly. There’s no way around this.

The good news is that if you create very specific content, in order to achieve a specific purpose, you can create set-and-forget blogs which will keep working for you long after you’ve created them.

I’ve been guilty of creating content just for the sake of it myself. However this strategy doesn’t work. You need to create content which has a particular aim in mind and which gets the results you want.

2. Get Traffic: Keep It Simple

There’s nothing complex about getting traffic. You can buy traffic, or you can get “organic” traffic from the search engines, social media sites, and other sites.

Ideally, you’ll aim to get traffic from many sources. Create a plan which will enable you to get traffic you want, at the price you want to pay, and then constantly test your results.

3. Develop an Exit Strategy: the Money Is in the Sale

Your website is an online property, and as such you can sell it at any time. Commonly, you can get 10 to 15 times your monthly earnings. However, you can earn much more depending on the potential the site is showing.

If you create an exit strategy before you create a new site, the big benefit is that you know what you’re aiming for. You know what your goals are, how much money you want to make, and that you can offer the site for sale as soon as your site nets enough income.

So there you have it. Three keys to a profitable blog. Put them into action, and you’ll be pleased at the results.

You can make make blogging both FUN and profitable. Angela Booth’s been blogging since 2000, so she knows what works.

When did you last paint your garden fence?

If you are a “big change” business, then you are like my garden fence. Leaving it unpainted for so long has created much more work, at a higher cost, than if it had been tended to every year. Ignoring reviews of your online activity for long periods also means you make more work for yourself and raise your costs.
