I’m sure you may have asked these or similar questions at one time or the other if you’re one who really wants to make a living online as a blogger.

Over the past couple of years since developing interest in blogging, nay making money blogging, I have always sought to uncover what these six figure bloggers are doing that I’m not doing. You know, sometimes I think I’m a better blogger than most of these blogging celebrities! ?

But frankly, I’m being serious here!

Make Money Blogging Advice Abounds Every Where, But…

As a blogger you definitely have read or heard both newbie and veteran bloggers advice that to make money blogging you need to

>>> choose a niche you’re passionate and knowledgeable about,

>>> write unique and useable content,

>>> post regularly,

>>> market your blog through various ways like blog commenting, article marketing, forum marketing etc.

However, I want to say as much as all these are important and necessary, there is definitely something that is missing in them. Read any blog out there that offer tips on making money blogging and you’ll discover that all of them give this same advice. Everywhere you turn you receive this type of information as the “insider secrets” to making millions as a blogger.

But have you ever asked yourself if you’re not doing these things? If you’re sincere to yourself you must be doing more than enough. But the question is:

>>> why are you not making the type of income these super probloggers are making right now?

>>> Why is everyone not producing the same results if this is all that it takes to make a six figure income blogging?

To really uncover the secrets of these probloggers I’ve being studying this subject of making money with blogs over the past few years and I’ve asked many questions of successful bloggers trying to understand what really made them successful.

From my research and studies I’ve come to realize that making a six figure income blogging is more than just writing and publishing blog posts. Unfortunately, many of those making six figures as bloggers are not very likely to give you their secrets unless of course, if they can sell it to you in an ebook!

But, the truth is if you are serious about making that amount of money and you’re ready to invest in it, chances are you could be a six figure blog marketing guru as well!

The Secret Is Not Really… A Secret!

Ok, I want to say that what I’ve uncovered is not really a secret except you have not taken time to figure this out before now. When I say it’s a secret uncovered, I’m actually using that phrase as a personal experience. Yes, it’s a secret to many of us but for those who have looked carefully at what the probloggers are doing; it is simply an open secret!

So what is this secret?

Please read carefully…

Six Figure Income Blogging Is More Than Likely Not Done With One Single Blog!

In simple terms, you cannot achieve a six figure income running just one blog. It would take many many blogs to create a six figure income! This is the one secret that has set the probloggers from the pack.

The truth is there is so much that one blog can earn for you! You may be the most wonderful blogger out there but if all your labor is focused on just one blog, you might just be working a job and not building an online business.

How To Put This Six Figure Income Blogging Secret To Work

If you are a blogger who is finding it hard to maintain just one blog, your concern may be, how do you expect to run multiple blogs concurrently when running one is already taking much of your time? If this is your concern then the following may be of help. These are some of the things these probloggers are doing that many of us are not doing right now. From my studies if you’ll add these ones to what you’re already doing, you’ll be on your way to making your own six figure income as a blogger very soon.

1. Be an Entrepreneur and Not Just a Blogger

Sometime ago I wrote a blog post on how to build a business and not just a blog. The truth is making a six figure income blogging demands the mindset of an entrepreneur. If you are still seeing yourself as just a blogger you’ll be missing a whole lot of things. I think this blog post by Yaro Starak will give you an idea about what I’m talking about here. The lesson I learnt from that post is simply the fact that you must be an entrepreneur to make the kind of money you desire as a blogger.

2. Develop Systems

The first thing you should do is to document your blogging activities with the mind of developing systems you can put into use at any time. One of the gains of developing systems is that with such systems you’ll be able to accomplish more with less time. With a tested and trusted system you can easily transfer that knowledge to other markets without much stress.

3. Outsource Your Work

If you truly want to make a six figure income as a blogger then outsourcing some work to others is not a bad idea. Doing all of the work yourself is not something that is possible if you want to make that amount of money. Just be sure that you hire those that you can trust and have a great reputation for getting work done on time and accurately. If you’ve developed systems as suggested above outsourcing your work to others will be much easier as you will be able to decide on an outline of what is needed and provide these to the people you’re hiring. This will ensure that your work can be done to specification. For example you may need some persons to set up your blogs others to write the content for the blogs and yet others to market them using social networking sites. Once your systems are in place all these activities will be done with much ease and to specification. The good news is that you can easily find experts on particular markets in places like this one and pay them for the rights to their articles.

Conclusion: I believe making a six figure income with blogs is definitely something you can do as a blogger. The first thing that you would need to do is find profitable markets. Set up multiple blogs in these markets and then get the right people to manage the blogs for you.  Just be sure that you hire those that know what they are doing and are fluent in the language that you are marketing in as well. Someone that speaks and writes poor English will not help your income, but may hurt it if you have English based readers.

Online business marketing strategies

There are various online marketing strategies in existence, and new approaches are introduced at an ever increasing rate. Some of these tactics are more effective than others, but there are a handful of strategies that have stood the test of time. Your chosen online promotional methods will be influenced to a great degree by the type of online business you pursue, the demographic of your audience, and your marketing budget.

Let us look at the most widely used promotional strategies and their respective advantages and disadvantages:

1. Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Advertising

PPC advertising is a strategy that involves the placement of ads on search engines to drive targeted traffic to your site. Google Adwords is the most commonly used form of PPC advertising.

Advantages:

• Results can be achieved in mere seconds

• New sites can build email lists and increase awareness fairly rapidly

• Costs are incurred only when someone clicks on your ad

Disadvantages:

• Costs-per-click are high in competitive industries

• Campaigns that are not optimized can result in high costs without many conversions

2. Organic Search Engine Marketing

Organic search engine marketing is an approach that involves ranking your website in the Search Engine Result Pages (SERP’s) to gain traffic directly from the search engines.

Advantages:

• There are no costs associated to traffic that is received from the search engines

• Traffic is laser targeted

• Can provide a form of residual income

Disadvantages:

• Ranking your site is time sensitive, and it can become a costly affair

• Results are relative to the industry and ranking on the first page is not guaranteed

3. Article Marketing

Article Marketing involves submitting articles relevant to your niche to popular article directories that are traffic intensive.

Advantages:

• You receive targeted traffic from within the article directories and the search engines

• Articles are often syndicated which brings you an increased amount of traffic from diverse sources

• You get backlinks to your site which aids in off-page search engine optimization

Disadvantages:

• Writing articles, researching topics, and submitting to the directories can become time-consuming

• Outsourcing this task can also become expensive over the long-term

4. Affiliate Marketing

This method involves using specialist internet marketers to help sell your product and in return you pay the marketer a commission for every sale or lead that is generated.

Advantages:

• You only pay the affiliate marketer for confirmed sales

• Affiliate Marketers assume the costs of promoting your product

Disadvantages:

• Unscrupulous marketers can use underhanded tactics to promote your product which can damage your company’s image

• The amount of sales you generate is dependent on the skill of the affiliate marketer

• Setting-up an affiliate marketing program and supporting your affiliates requires a large investment

5. Email Marketing

Email marketing is a strategy that involves the use of emails that are sent directly to the client who opted-in to your email list to promote your company and your products.

Advantages:

• Automation software has significantly reduced the time and costs associated with email marketing

• Email communication provides the platform for you to build a lasting relationship with your client

Disadvantages:

• Conspicuous sales copy within an email can offend clients

• It can become time-consuming to respond to clients who have replied to the emails you send out

Formulating a specific marketing strategy that is suitable to your online business is critical in order to extract the highest ROI. Weighing-up the advantages and disadvantages of each method and choosing the methods with the least risk is a good starting point. However you must realize that the progressive nature of the internet calls for diverse sources of traffic.

Blog Marketing Using High Traffic Blogs!

I’ve thought of talking about this for sometime now. However other commitments have taken me off for the past few days. Besides, I discovered a few days ago that the blog theme was breaking. So I had to work on this first. At the moment things are back to normal and so I felt it’s time to talk about this.

I know generating traffic is always an interesting topic for every blogger. I for one, I’m always on the look out for free but powerful ways I can drive traffic to this blog. Well I just love free ways! You know why dish out some dough when you can get it for free? You know what I mean, right?

Ok, so I’ve discovered quite a few ways of driving traffic to your blog. And I believe you’ll also want to use this free method I’ll be talking about here. You don’t have to spend your life savings on expensive ‘traffic generation’ software or even paid traffic!

The new method I’ve just discovered is contributing your content to High Traffic Blogs!

You see I’ve just discovered that there are some high traffic blogs out there that will gladly allow you to post your content for free. Maybe you’re wondering what is different with this and guest posting?

Well there are just a few differences. You know with guest blog posting you will have a hard time being accepted on some of these high traffic blogs. Especially if you’re just starting out. And then with most guest posting there are conditions like you not posting your guest blog article any other place even on your own blog. But no so with what I’m talking about here. In fact with this one you can post articles you’ve alread posted on your blog!

It just work the same as article marketing. But you know many of the article directories do not allow duplicate contents. That’s articles on your site will need to be re-worked before submission to these article directories.

Ok, enough of that let me give you an example of such blogs. Here’s one you can use right away. It is called The Marketing Blog Zine – http://marketing-blogzine.com.

The Marketing Blog Zine talks about Internet marketing and making money online. It provides targeted traffic for anyone who wants to learn about Internet marketing.

If you want to divert traffic from blogs like these, what you can do is to contribute your own blog posts as a contributor. Talk about topics that are relevant to their blog as well as your own. This is a good way to capture the reader’s attention.

You will reap the following benefits:

• You get to tap into their traffic and drive traffic to your blog

• You get to build your credibility online because you get to leverage on their ‘authority’

• The blog post remains there for a certain period of time ensuring that you will get maximum exposure

Ensure that your content is relevant. When submiting your content there is one section that you must take note of because it is really valuable. This is the author’s bio. This bio block allows you to ‘sell’ yourself and brand yourself as an expert in whatever niche that you are in. if you’ve submitted articles to article directories, then you know what I’m talking about. Use this bio box wisely and you can be sure to drive tons of traffic to your website!

Hope this article was helpful. Let’s hear your thoughts on this. If you’ve used sites like these before you can also let us know.
