How To Make Money As A Beginner Blogger

Once your web site is set up, you have a few posts going, you will want to start applying to participate with influencer campaigns. This means you will sign up to possibly review brands, write product essays, etc.

NOTE: A lot of people skip this step thinking they need thousands of page views. Not always! A lot of influencer platforms will take in your social status as a whole. Meaning, they will not only be looking at your blog, but also your social media accounts: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Even the amount of followers on Pinterest will be taken into account.

Personally, I would check out the following programs:

  • Fohr
  • The Sway
  • Heartbeat

3 Things You Need To Do Before Starting Your Blog

Starting your blog can be both an exciting and overwhelming adventure. Today, we are sharing three tips that will help you get started on a positive journey to blogging online!

#1 Figure Out Your Audience and Subject Matter

The first thing you want to do before anything else is to brainstorm the audience you hope to capture and what your ultimate subject matter will be.

A simple way to get inspiration for this is by searching Pinterest. Use the search bar to check out whether or not the subjects that you want to blog about is trending or not. You definitely want a topic that gets volume on Pinterest as it is one of the simplest ways to gain traffic even with a new blog! You can read more tips about Pinterest here.

#2 Double Check Your Domain Name Ideas

Before you register your domain name I highly recommend checking to see if you will be able to get the matching names on social media outlets. For example, if your domain name was called JaneDoeLovesChocolate, you would want to make sure that name is also available on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

You will also want to make sure it is available on Pinterest (even though it’s not a social media). This will help you set your brand up for success.

#3 Brainstorm at least 10 to 20 Posts

This can’t be stated enough: Take a few days to brainstorm post ideas and post titles. If you can start your blog out with great content right away you will be well ahead of the game! This will also look favorable on search engines.

After you’ve completed these three steps, you may be ready to start your own blog! Check out my tips for starting a blog from scratch here.
