The concept of starting a blog and making money seems like an easy one but it’s actually much harder than most people think. Don’t get me wrong, it’s dead simple to start a blog of your own and add content… but then what. With millions of blogs out there and many of them already much larger and in direct competition with you, why would anyone want to visit your blog over another one that is already established?
To make money in the world of blogging you need a few things:
• A voice and brand people trust
• Ability to provide content people need
• Have an excellent monetization plan
Since blogging is one of the slowest methods for making money online, if you are going to attempt to create a business out of it you better have a plan in place first.
To make this process easier for anyone who is planning on starting a blog, let’s run through the process of how you can create a free stuff based blog that will almost start making money as soon as you have traffic flowing through the site.
1. First Create a Blog
Obviously you are going to need a blog of your own to start. If you already have a blog I would recommend starting a new one and getting a nice domain that includes “free stuff” or related terms in the domain. This way people will know what to expect when visiting your site. Also be sure to find a nice theme design and if you have the funds, a nice logo design would help with branding the site as well.
2. Find the Best Free Stuff Offers
Now that your blog is up you need to find some great free stuff offers for your site. You can visit other free stuff web sites and see what they are currently promoting, or visiting some of your favourite brands and see what freebies and promotions they are giving away through their sites. Just keep loading your site up with quality freebies and people will keep coming back.
3. Integrate Affiliate Offers Within Your Content
In addition to all of the free stuff offers that you are collecting from other sites, it’s always good to add in some compensated offers in the process. Many affiliate networks will have free stuff offers, contests and promotions that you can send traffic to an earn a commission every time someone completes the offer. Shareasale.com also has a massive list of companies and brands on their network, many of which that provide coupons and free stuff offers that you can blend in with your other content.
Google Adsense is another good alternative for free stuff based sites, as it looks like real content and usually pulls in a higher click through rate than other sites.
4. Create a Mailing List for Continued Growth
While getting people to your site, you will also want to focus on getting them on your mailing list to keep them coming back. Creating your own mailing list is easy and very effective. Offer your site visitors a free top freebies list in exchange for their email and watch your conversions soar.
5. Grow Your Social Network Exposure
Lastly, it would be a big mistake for you to not take advantage of the billion+ users who are currently on Twitter and Facebook. There are already thousands of groups and fan pages with millions of users who are looking for coupons and free stuff offers. Be sure to create your own pages for your site and build up your following. Every time you post a new offer to your site, you can have it updated to all of your social network followers as well.
