Money and sex are two of the most discussed topics on the internet. There’s no wonder that blogs about money and blogs about dating and stuff like that have so many readers and make a ton-load of money.
Blogging about money can be very lucrative. You make money online and you explain people how they can do it too. The problem with this niche is that you need to show something in order to be credible. When you are just at the beginning of your money making journey, you won’t have too much to show, so you have to be creative.
It’s hilarious to see beginner bloggers who write monthly income reports and publish them on their blog, displaying figures in the $0 – $100 range. If you blog about making money, don’t do that mistake. Don’t publish your revenue unless it’s something that would entice others to follow your advice. If you only make $20 per month, why would I care about your tips? I can probably make more than that in one hour of work.
A good idea to get followers is to be creative. You can set up your own experiments with websites, then publish the results on your blog. That’s interesting and people would follow, even if you don’t make money. Ideas are also worth spending time on. Beginner internet marketers might find your ideas cool, so you might be able to gather a large enough group and set up something like a group challenge. For example, you can set the goal of building a website and make your first $100 from it within three months.
Of course, you need to have a method to share with your followers, to guide them and to help them in your collective effort of generating some money, no matter how little.
If you are lucky, some already famous internet marketer might write about your challenge, case in which you may end up so popular, that you’ll have to spend hours each day only reading your email. Well, you can make your own luck, you know? Once you have your challenge setup in detail, write a cool letter to all internet marketers that are older in the business than you and ask them to review your idea. If you send out 200 letters, you might receive 4-5 reviews.
Other beginners could also help you. Encourage them to promote your challenge on their blogs. Become friends. Help each other. You never know which of those people will become a leader in the field. In a few years time, you might be happy for knowing that person since their beginnings in the industry. Those are the friendships that last and bring you all benefits. You can always set up JVs with those friends of yours.
Whatever you do, never forget to educate yourself in your niche. If you blog about making money online, read as much literature on the topic as you can find. There are some really good blogs out there, so subscribe to their feed, watch them, interact with those communities and you’ll see the benefits in no time.
