How to Blog and Make Money Online!

how to blog and make money online

So you’re wondering how to blog and make money online and that’s awesome.

I think it’s awesome that you’re starting to chase your dream.

Traveling and blogging is a lot of fun because you can not only experience new adventures but you can also enhance your writing skills.

And you can share those adventures with your audience! 

Contrary to what you might think, it’s not so difficult to create a blog that can bring in enough cash to support your adventures.

Money can go a lot further in some countries, such as South East Asia, and that’s one of the reasons countries like Thailand are full of aspiring internet entrepreneurs.

I’m not saying that you have to move to Thailand.

There are plenty of travel bloggers that live in first-world countries where the cost of living is much higher.

How to Blog and Make Money Online: Optimize Your Income

But you have to realize that your website probably won’t make any cash for a few months, maybe even a year.

It takes time to set up a website that brings in a regular stream of cash.

So you don’t want to run out of savings while you’re waiting for your website to start bringing in the cash.

Make sure that you have your finances under control before you start working on your travel website.

Again, that’s one of the main reasons most entrepreneurs move to Asia because the cost of living is low so they don’t need to worry too much about their finances.

Ideally, a website should have multiple streams of income. 

I recommend affiliate marketing for long-term and a service or quick-cash.

You want your website to bring in two types of income; fast and slow.

The fast income will come from services that you offer, and the slow income will come from affiliate sales or ad-clicks. 

The reason affiliate sales and ad-clicks are considered a slow source of income is because you need time for your articles to rank.

And since you have to compete with a lot of other websites, ranking for a keyword can take a long time.

The service-based income should take a higher priority than the other type of income because most affiliate programs take awhile to verify commissions and pay affiliates.

In other words, as an affiliate marketer you’ll have to wait awhile to receive your cash; maybe a month or more. 

With service-based income, that’s fast cash that clients send directly to your account either before or after you complete the project.

And since we all need fast cash, that’s what we want to focus on.

So if you’re wondering how to blog and make money online, it’s best to come up with a list of services that you can offer people for quick cash. 

These services could be pretty much anything and thanks to the internet you can outsource most of the work too.

For starters, I would recommend offering a writing service, as it’s the simplest and easiest service to offer people.

In my case, I created an order form where people can order articles directly from me, click here to check it out. 

But other bloggers tend to write a simple blurb about their services with contact information near the end.

Here are a few other services you can offer people: 

  • Article Writing
  • Sales Writing
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Social Media Management
  • Photoshop (Logo Design, etc)
  • Web Design
  • Virtual Assistant
  • Coaching
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Link Building
  • And More.

You’ll notice that most successful bloggers offer a few different services on their website to really optimize income.

You can also outsource work when the workload is too intense. 

Some people outsource all of the work and remain the middleman, that’s another idea you can try out.

The reason we need to offer a service is because we don’t want to rely on only commissions to support our lifestyle.

Affiliate commissions are awesome but they’re unstable and it takes a long time to receive the funds so they should take the backseat. 

So what you want to do is make a separate page on your blog that lists all the services that you offer and then try to link to that page in your articles.

In other words, make sure that people know that you’re offering those services.

If people don’t know you offer those services, they won’t hire you.

You can also make an image, like the one on the sidebar of my website, to send even more people to your service page.

When your website starts getting traffic, the clients should start to roll in. 

In other words, the clients will come to you.

But it usually takes awhile to receive your first clients directly from your website.

So what you can do is try to find people who need your services and contact them.

You want to always make sure that you have cashing coming in.

Remember, the more samples the better, so don’t forget to include samples and testimonials on your service page.

So what does this have to do with how to blog and make money online? 

Well, once you have a list of services on your website, it’s time to start blogging and targeting keywords so you can bring in more traffic.

With more traffic you’ll see more clients and more commissions.

You’ll blog to build an audience. 

The articles will rank in Google and people will visit your website.

It takes awhile to build up traffic from blogging and it’s important to have your service page ready from day one so you don’t miss potential clients.

Once again, it’s important to make the services that you offer crystal clear, and make the instant someone lands on your website they know what type of services you offer.

Now do you know how to blog and make money online?

There’s a lot more too it.

Got a Question?

Leave it below and I’ll do my best to answer it.

One Simple Trick to Get a Head Start in Google’s Search Results!

When it comes to creating a website, the most common method is to head on over to a domain registrar to buy a domain name and then sign-up for a hosting service.

Though that method does work, there’s another method that you can use to set up a new website and get a head start in Google’s search results.

In most niches, the competition is quite fierce, and new domains rarely rank well within the first few months.

It takes time to build a website that will remain in the number one spot for your target keyword.

In fact, most websites will bounce up and down between keyword positions, unless you really know how to optimize your website for search engine results.

Well, if you are planning to start a new business, this one trick might be what you need to secure your Google rank.

Buy an Expired Domain for Your Business.

Instead of looking for an exact match domain on a domain name registrar, consider looking into domains that have already been bought but the owner, for some reason, has decided to abandon them.

Expired domains are awesome because they usually have more authority than brand new domain names.

Though domain age is not a prime factor when it comes to search engine optimization, in most cases older domains will have more links pointing in.

There are tons of these domains lying around abandoned and waiting to be snatched up and used.

Most of the time you’ll need to pay a little more than you would for a regular domain name but the SEO benefits are worth it.

Then again, not all expired domains are useful.

As I mentioned earlier, the age of the domain alone is not an important factor, but what you want is a website that has decent page authority and back-links.

A lot of internet marketers will abandon their websites when Google slaps them with a penalty and those are the domains you want to avoid at all costs.

But there are also a lot of expired domains that were abandoned simply because the owner changed tactics or start a new business.

So where can you find expired domains for your new business? 

Most domain registrars have a section that allows you to search for expiring or outdated domains.

For example, Name.com has an interesting section with a lot of expired domains that you can snatch up for a decent price. 

With Name.com, only the domain names will be for sale, in other words, these aren’t websites and they don’t have any content.

For best results, look for expired domains that already have content because that will save you a lot of time.

Just make sure the content is unique. 

As I mentioned earlier, they’re a little bit more expensive, but usually not much more, maybe a few dollars.

Check the domain metrics and back-link profile.

But remember that you need to check if those domains carry any authority because an old domain without any back-links (or an expired domain with a penalty) won’t benefit you at all.

To check those metrics, use a free tool called Majestic. 

Take a look at the back-link profile breakdown and don’t entertain domains that have deleted or no-follow back-links, as those are useless.

You also want to keep an eye out for the green section, as that means the back-links were active last time the domain was crawled.

If you can find an expired domain with a positive back-link profile because it will provide you with a really nice search engine optimization boost.

So if you are planning to create a website soon, this is one trick that you might want to consider to boost your rank.

Otherwise, the alternative is starting with a brand new domain and building back-links from scratch, a process that takes quite a long time.

With my technique you’ll be able to save a bit more time.

Two Simple Ways to Boost Social Shares on Your Social Media Profiles

If used correctly, social media can be a gold-mine for marketing and leads.

It’s your duty to find and share useful content on your profiles to boost interaction and lead people back to your website.

But that’s a little easier said than done. 

Most people get stuck when it comes to marketing on social media because they don’t know what type of content to share to capture people’s interest.

Well, there are two simple tricks that you can use to create hot content for your social media profiles and boost social shares.

The first tip involves an online photo-editing tool called Canva. 

Canva is an awesome free online-based tool that you can use to make cover images for your projects.

Ever see those motivational posts on Facebook with a portrait and a quote from a famous author or artist?

Images like that are shared quite often on social media, and I’m going to show you how to make them.

With Canva, it’s super easy! 

First, head over to Canva and create a free account. 

It’s totally free, no strings attached.

Next, select the type of project that you need.

I recommend the default “Social Media” template but you can also use “Custom Dimensions” in the top right corner.

Then, drag and drop the elements that you need into the workplace.

The “Layouts” menu has a lot of excellent templates to choose from.

Click on the text area to edit the default text.

You can include any inspiration quote in this area, or you can do something different and use this as a marketing opportunity for your business.

If you have a blog or Twitter account, one idea would be to take snippets from your articles or Tweets, and include them in this text area, with a link to your website at the bottom.

Take a look at the example below.

I made that in a few seconds.

With a little more time, we can make it even prettier, and not only will it spice up the article, but it will also provide us with something to share on social media.

You could even take it a step further and use your personal portrait picture in the background.

Have fun and be creative. 

Just remember the point is to create an image for social media because images tend to be shared a lot more than plain text links.

If you want to learn more about marketing on social media, I recommend reading this ultimate guide to marketing on social media. 

The second tip is a little simpler, and it’s mainly for Tweets or Facebook statuses.

What you want to do is take a snippet from your article and then share it as a Tweet or Status.

It’s that simple.

It’s a good idea to do this prior to publishing the article, as it provides people with a teaser for the upcoming article.

Take a look at the Tweet below.

Would you read that article?

So that’s it for today, two simple tips that you can use to boost interaction on your social media profiles.

I hope you found those tips useful and I can’t wait to see your results.

Thanks for taking the time to read this short article and don’t forget to leave a comment.

Until next time.

I’m Starting a Blogging Challenge. Would You Like to Join Me?

 “Eh? It’s a new year already?”

When did that happen? and why didn’t anyone tell me?

Looking back on this year, there are a lot of things that I wished I focused more on.

And this website is one of those things.

I’m not a fan of New Year’s resolutions because they only fuel your motivation for the first month of the new year, and then it’s back to the same old grind.

Like when the gym fills up with new members who told themselves that this year will definitely be different; the year they’ll lose weight, the year they’ll reach their fitness goals and feel satisfied with their lives.

Nothing really changes. Unless you make it change. 

So I’m not going to list my New Year’s resolutions and business goals because I think it’s much more powerful to focus on taking action instead of talking about what you want to do.

As it turns out, I’m not alone in this theory.

There was a study done in 1933 that confirms the same principle; people who talk about their intentions are less likely to complete them.

And there have been TED talks about the same idea too.

Below is a link to a video about reaching your goals, highly recommended.

To put it bluntly; don’t talk about your plans. 

E.G. Keep your mouth shut.

Recently, during a conversation with a friend, I found myself talking about my plans for the future and what I want to do.

She replied with, “Tim, that’s what you say every year”.

It’s true.

I made the mistake of talking about my goals.

While I was busy talking about my plans, I forgot to actually work towards them.

And then I realized that I had the same goals for a long time, and I’m no closer to reaching them than I was when I first made them.

So clearly something needs to change.

But this time I plan to reach at least some of those goals; starting with this website and my online business.

We’ll keep it small.

I’m going to do something simple and you’re more than welcome to join me.

When we’re done, we’ll have a lot more content on our websites, and we’ll create the habit of working on our websites more often.

What will we do?

It’s simple; write; fill our websites up with useful content that brings in traffic and sales.

I’m going to write and publish an article every other day, aiming for at least three a week.

Content is the reasons people visit websites, without content there would be no reason to visit a website and there would be no way for people to find your website in search engine results.

Confused and not sure how to write articles for your website?

Order articles from our team of expert writers! 

I’m also looking to network with anyone who is participating in similar challenges, as it’s always awesome to meet like-minded people.

So how does that sound?

Would you like to join me for a blogging challenge and write three articles a week?

Let’s do it.

This is Day 1. 

7 Ways Your Business Will Benefit From Hiring Us to Write for You

7waysyourbusinesswillbenefit

Feel free to visit the order form at anytime to request some articles, I’ll always deliver articles as soon as possible.

So if you’re tired of writing for your own website, head over to the order form, submit the order, and wait for the completed article to arrive in your inbox.

If you have some question, take a look at our list of frequently asked questions. 

In this article, we’ll discuss 10 reasons to use our new simple order form for your content needs so you can see exactly how the service can benefit your business.

Let’s dive in.

1. Save Time!

Let’s face it, content creation takes a lot of time.

If you don’t have experience writing articles, it can take you a few hours just to write one article.

That’s a lot of time that you could be spending on other areas of your business.

This service will save you time.

Don’t worry about content creation, let us take care of it for you.

Instead of spending time on tasks that you don’t enjoy, wouldn’t it be better to let someone else handle them?

2. Content Optimized for Readers!

I’m sure you have come across lots of websites with articles that you can barely read because the content is not optimized for readers.

Maybe you have made the same mistakes too.

These type of websites are quite common because most people think articles just need to include the target keyword to rank in search engine results.

But that’s not right.

We write articles for human readers! 

We format the articles as neatly as possible to reduce eye-strain and drive the point home!

It’s also common for us to include a summary of the main points at the end of the article to make it easier for the reader to remember the key points.

Yes, that means we write with a conversational tone!

3. Rank in Search Engine Results!

Though our articles are mainly written for human readers, we also follow Google’s ideal keyword placement strategies for optimal search engine results.

That means we’ll include your focus keyword a specific amount of times and in strategic locations throughout the body of the content.

In other words, we’ll make it much easier for you to rank in search engine results, thus sending waves of traffic in your direction.

And more traffic means more sales!

4. Cover Images!

Cover images are quite important but not many people use them.

There’s a reason all the most popular blogs use unique cover images for their articles!

Why are cover images important? 

  • They provide a snapshot of the content, lets the reader know what to expect.
  • They improve clicks from social media because viewers will get a little taste of the content and decide whether or not to click the link.
  • When included in your article, the target keyword can be placed in the html description and alt-tags to further improve search engine optimization.
  • They improve the chances of your article being share on social media. In fact, most of the time people share links without even clicking on the content, but base their decision on the cover image alone!

P.S. If you wanna learn more about how to market content on social media, read this in-depth guide and start applying the tips! 

So those are just some of the many reasons why cover images are important and should always be included in each article that you publish on your website.

We’ll make them for you! 

5. Blog Comments!

Blog comments are important for search engine optimization because not only do they send some social signals to Google but they also show new readers that you’re website has an active community!

Google’s algorithm has been updated to focus more on social signals, and these signals can come from social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc) or blog comments.

We have a small team of people who would be happy to visit your website and leave some unique and well-written comments.

These comments will give your articles a little boost which will make it rank faster in search engine results.

Oh, and these comments are not simple one-liners full of spelling mistakes. 

Each of these comments is hand-written and based on the content of your article, we’ll read the article and leave a well-written comment.

Please keep in mind that these comments will always be over 100 words and we can also include your focus keyword if it fits naturally into the conversation.

I also would like to stress that we don’t spam comments, we offer a maximum of 5 comments per article.

You will have to send us the link to the published article and we only can leave comments on WordPress websites.

If your WordPress website uses another plugin for comments, such as Facebook or DISQUS, we won’t be able to leave comments.

That’s one way to provide your fresh article with a much-needed social signal boost.

6. Revive Your Website!

Most people who are interested in making money online will setup a website and start writing articles only to lose their passion halfway through the process.

I know writing articles can be tough especially if you’re not passionate about writing articles in the first place.

But instead of allowing your website to stagnate and be added to the ever-growing list of abandoned websites, consider using our service to revive your website.

Did you know you can create a successful website without ever having to lift a finger to type an article?

It’s possible! 

And plenty of people do it.

So don’t let your idea of being the owner of an online business die because you don’t have the time or skills to write articles for your readers.

P.S. If you’re looking to setup an online business for the first time, this course has everything that you’ll need to get started. It’s my favorite training course and I highly recommend it. 

7. Give Your Readers Something New!

Everyone has their own unique writing style and tone, and though we do our best to match the tone of your articles, our content can also provide your readers with a fresh voice and a different perspective.

People always crave something new but sometimes, as bloggers, we can’t always come up with unique ideas that will capture our reader’s interests.

Or maybe you’re just completely burned out.

It happens, but we can make it possible for you to continue to release content without actually having to sit down and write it on your own.

Doesn’t that sound awesome? 

Summary and Conclusion:


To summarize, whether you’re new to working online or you already have an established website, one thing that you’ll always need is fresh content that ranks in search engine results.

In this article we went over some of the benefits of hiring us to handle your content needs and there are many more that we haven’t listed.

In a nutshell, hiring us to write your content is an investment into your business, one that will be quite profitable for you. 

Publish one of our articles on your website and include affiliate links and that article will continue to bring in cash for you far into the future.

I think that’s a good deal.
