earn money bloggingEarn Money Blogging By Educating Yourself

I’m one of those guys that does a ton of research and when it comes to something like being able to earn money blogging or generating a passive or residual income, I’m all ears. I wholeheartedly believe in always increasing my knowledge of the Internet whether it’s learning a different or more effective marketing technique or reviewing tools and systems to make things more simple and efficient.

While I have written quite a number of articles surrounding making money online – anywhere, of course – today I’m going to write about how I earn money blogging.

Now when I say “blogging” I may be using the term fairly loosely. I don’t really consider myself a professional blogger, I’m more of an Internet marketer and very proud of the fact. That is not to say I don’t do a bit of so-called blogging when it comes to things that I actually know something about and I do capitalize on that blogging as well from a standpoint of monetizing my blogs in different ways.

Three Methods I Use to Earn Money Blogging

There are a few different ways to earn money blogging and I’m going to go over two or three that I use to earn money with.

First, Google adsense. For me, this is a fantastic program and with this one site I probably generate a couple of hundred dollars a month. Now I know two hundred isn’t anything to write home about, but you also have to remember that this isn’t my only blog! You also have to remember that I am going to have to attract traffic to my blog for other purposes so making money with adsense is just sort of a bonus.

A lot of people use adsense exclusively to earn money blogging and the key is traffic generation and not just any traffic. Like anything else, you want to make sure that your traffic is very targeted. You should only have visitors coming to your site that are interested in what you are offering – sort of makes sense. If you sell bananas you don’t want people looking for apples coming to your site, you want people looking for bananas. Yep, sounds pretty simple when you put it that way.

The second method I use to earn money blogging is with affiliate and referral programs. There are simply tons and tons of programs out there, that you can join to sell many different products. You can partner up with Amazon and sell all kinds of products or you can go with an affiliate opportunity like clickbank and sell digital products. You have many choices to pick from and you shouldn’t have a difficult time finding something that you are interested in promoting.

The Best Way to Earn Money Blogging and From a Blog

I save the best (in my humble opinion) for last, network marketing or MLM. Now I know that for many folks out there network marketing is the last thing you want to hear about. Many people have begun a network marketing career with high hopes only to find themselves in utter frustration and failure within a fairly short period of time…somewhere around 4 months statistically speaking.

However, you need to look at this business model from a business perspective. Network marketing, when done properly (most struggle with this) is fairly simple to build and utilizing the Internet is a fantastic way to build your business because you can automate so many systems and automate so much of the work.

The biggest problem with network marketing is that people are not properly trained to market their programs online. The second biggest problem is that there is typically an auto-ship program of some type or another that distributors are involved with that can slowly drain your cash reserves. There’s nothing like realizing that you have made $23 bucks in the last 3 months, but you have paid out over a grand and things just don’t really seem to be getting any better. Good news, things can get better if you get the proper training!

The key, once again, is learning how to become an effective promoter and marketer of your program. Think about it, if you were able to effortlessly recruit someone every week to your program and then be a part of teaching that person to recruit a person into their business once a week then what would your business look like after 3 months? Probably would be making a buck or two also, wouldn’t you? Like I said, I saved the best for last.

Learning to earn money blogging is not that difficult a process. Yes, there is a bit of a learning curve, but if you are serious you can literally be started within the next 24 hours and begin to generate an income within a couple of months. Although I cannot teach you how to do this stuff overnight so you can make money the next night, you can eventually become a very proficient blogger and you too can earn money blogging online.

The Benefits of Working on the Internet

benefits of working on the internet

Work Online Anywhere!

What are the benefits of working on the Internet?

Without a doubt, building a business online has been a fascinating and at times an exhilarating opportunity and I decided to go ahead and discuss some of the benefits of working on the Internet.

First of all, I can tell you that deciding to jump into the online world of marketing or program promoting is not without its share of difficulties. There are many trials and tribulations that a novice marketer will face on their way to becoming a very proficient and professional marketer. Understanding that there will be difficulties, but having faith and knowing that with patience and effort you will get through these difficulties is a huge deal and perhaps one of the most important steps to actually making money online or offline in your own business.

Creating a Passive Income

Too many times I hear from folks about their struggles to replace their incomes or supplement their incomes during these difficult economic times that need something now rather than later and honestly, I don’t know what to say. To build anything solid or of value does take time. One of the benefits of working on the internet is that once a foundation is built then you are in a position to generate income online for a long period of time and in a passive style.

Benefits of Working On the Internet: Mobility

Another one of the fantastic benefits of working on the internet is your ability to move from place to place without disturbing your stream of income. I named this blog Make Money Online Anywhere for a reason. Eventually, once I have built a few more income streams up, my family and I will drop off of the grid and begin a more nomadic lifestyle of adventure and travel – while we are still young enough to do so!

As long as you have an internet connection and a laptop, a person should be able to generate an income no matter where in the world they may find themselves. This is probably my most favorite benefit of working online.

The Benefit of Flexibility

There are many other benefits of working on the internet as well, benefits like the flexibility that you have. You can work for a few hours in the morning and start again after dinner if that is what you are into. Once you set up a blog or a few blogs and have traffic coming to them on a consistent basis your situation can become quite flexible indeed. Many times I go to one of my daughters school or sporting events and I am able to to return home that evening and am able to finish an article or a submission process.

benefits of working on the internetThe Biggest Benefits of Working On the Internet: Freedom

While getting things set up just the way that you want them may take some time and just getting a new blog up and running could take a few months, I assure you that it is all worth it. The freedom that comes with building a business online is possibly the biggest and best of all of the benefits of working on the internet.

earn residual income onlineMy Desire to Earn Residual Income Online

I started my blog Make Money Online Anywhere as a way to eventually earn residual income online. I had a slight notion of what I direction I wanted to head into, but other than learning how to earn residual income online, I can’t say I really knew where this would go.

A lot of people out there talk about generating some sort of passive income and to be honest I think most of these people either don’t have a clue how to really do all of this or they are concerned with only filling their own wallets with your money. Not many really seem to be interested in truly helping other achieve even though they will be more than happy to give you a worthless eBook and a ticket to the next greatest mlm.

Disillusioned By Those That Claim to Earn Residual Income Online

I have become a little bit jaded online. In my own quest to earn residual income online I have come across many that are willing to make some pretty steep promises, many that will call other programs a scam in the name of selling their own program(s) and even others that will put down anyone or anything that is not in their own company.

Am I about to sit here and tell you how you can earn residual income online with my newest software that once set into motion takes care of everything except going to the bank and cashing the checks? Ah, no, I’m not.

Earn Residual Income Online and Earn Freedom

Making money online anywhere is the name of this blog…for a reason. For ME, the idea of finding different ways to earn residual income online is all about freedom. Time freedom and financial freedom…total freedom in my opinion. I want to experience life, I want to travel, I want to see things that most can only read about or view in pictures or on the television.

I know this isn’t the dream lifestyle of everyone and that is just fine. I realize that some people would just be happy replacing their income and be able to come home and spend time with their families. I get it. Once again, time and financial freedom.

This blog has become an opportunity for me to test out different money making programs. To try to show others how to effectively market online and make money, some for the first time ever, online. I know that many of you are coming here wondering if I am being honest about the programs that I market, or the methods that I choose to promote them. When I get out there (on the internet) for research purposes I understand why so many people are so damned skeptical, there is good reasons for it.

The problem is, eventually you just have to take the plunge. I did. Anyone that has ever made money online has had to in one sense or another.

My very first Internet money making adventure (my first effort to earn residual income online) came in the form of a cash gifting program. Yep, I was involved in gifting and you know what? I found it wasn’t really a scam. Sure I read a lot of information on gifting AFTER I joined up and really wondered if I would make a dime, but ultimately I just decided that it would probably come down to marketing. I was right; those that learned how to market effectively made money while those that did not warned everyone else to stay away from the gifting scam…just another victim.

Earn Residual Income Online Just Like “They” Do

You see, I’m one of “those” people. I know that if some other person can make money doing something then I probably can too. I don’t necessarily think that all of this stuff is so mysterious, as a matter of fact, I believe that most success online or offline is a result of doing certain things, taking specific actions in a consistent manner in the direction of our goals. This is how it gets done.

So, what is my favorite program that will help you earn residual income online? I actually have a few. My favorite programs today are the ZNZ One and ZNZ Big Cash programs. Why? Because they work for me. They will probably work for you, but I assure you that it will come at a price. What is that price? You will have to learn and you will have to apply what you learn, but there is a guarantee attached to this so pay attention.

If you actually do learn the skills that an internet marketer needs, you find a few programs that you can earn residual income online with and you market them effectively and consistently for a period of time, you will succeed. With consistent effort over time you will succeed in a very big way.

The key then is making a choice. You want to live a lifestyle that most just dream of? Then do something about it, take the first step. Anyone can fantasize and anyone can dream, the few take steps to achieve their goals and realize their dreams. Many will say they are lucky or they are blessed and perhaps that is true, but the luck and the blessings often times came from their own hands through the sweat of their brow. You know, that whole “reap what you sow,” business.

earn residual income onlineMake A Decision and Commit To Earn Residual Income Online

Are you ready to make a decision? Are you ready to show the world and yourself that you are worth it? This will not come overnight and you may actually have to go through periods where you are uncomfortable, but it will be worth it.

There are a few steps that you will have to take.

  1. Join a proven program like the Online Payday System
  2. Get the training you need from the system and from a mentor (I offer free training for those that are ready to go)
  3. Commit to building your online business – commit, don’t decide to try it out.
  4. Do not quit.

This stuff may sound difficult, but it’s really not. The ZNZ programs are simple and as easy as it gets. They are very similar to affiliate marketing programs, but are actually referral programs. You will earn between $20 and $100 per referral.

earn residual income online

One of the benefits of learning how to market on the Internet is that you are able to leverage the Internet in quite a few ways. In terms of costs, the Internet is one of the cheapest places to build a business. Very little overhead and a ton of potential exposure. The Internet works 24/7 365 days a year. There is no doubt that when you learn to earn residual income online then you too will look back and say it was worth the effort even while others will talk about the scam that they were victimized by.

Information Overload! 16 Steps to Page One!

steps to page oneI speak with a lot of people every week that are interested in making money online and internet marketing as a career. They all tell me that they don’t really know where to start. They talk about how much information there is to learn and how overwhelming it all seems…information overload, very typical and while there is a lot to learn, you also have to learn when to apply it.

Here Is Your Online Guarantee

Another lesson that you will want to learn, and this is one of those guarantee moments as in I guarantee that this will happen to you. Ready? Here it comes…You are going to make mistakes! What??? Yep, that’s right, you are going to make a mistake. You are going to write a post that veers off of topic from time to time. You are going to forget all of the little SEO elements for your article. It may not hit page 1…OMG!

Remember one thing. This was passed on to me from a friend a long time ago. We both worked for a plumbing company and some guy was telling my friend he had never broken a toilet on installation. My friend, a real wise guy, looked at him and replied, “Then you haven’t installed enough of them.”

The lesson was simple. Those that don’t make mistakes aren’t doing much if anything at all. Don’t be scared. Get out there and make mistakes and then learn from them. You’ve heard the term “fail your way to success,” haven’t you? Of course you have. The Japanese proverb goes like this:

Fall down seven times, get up eight

One of the problems I see in this business, and others, is folks that are learning and starting to get a grasp of what is happening begin to focus on the little things so much that they forget to market. I mean you have someone that is worried about how well placed their key phrase is within their blog post. Then, of course, they need to find the right image or two for the article and craft the right header tags and title…got to make sure that the SEO is just so!

Am I Doing This Thing Right?

Then there is the whole matter of back links, how many do we need? Oh shoot, I forgot to bookmark this article, better get back there and do that…what was that site again? Ping.fm? Yeah, that’s the one. Is it done?

What about facebook, did I put anything on facebook? Did I make a post? Oh crap, what else did I forget? Am I ever going to get this thing down? Why does it keep changing?!

Does that sound familiar at all? Listen, I know there are a lot of steps when it comes to working up a key phrase and trying to get it on the first page of Google, nothing wrong with that, but remember that while there is a science to getting on the first page of Google and the other search engines with our content, there is also an art to online marketing. Sometimes less is more.

Facebook Fun?

I remember when I first started toying with facebook. As with anything new, I started reading everything I could trying to find the “secrets” of the social media gurus. I did everything for a while. I went out and made tons of “friend” requests, joined various groups and essentially wasted a LOT of time on the site checking out other profiles when I could have been applying that effort to something more rewarding in terms of traffic.

That said, I like facebook because it is a great place for me to market my blog posts and get some immediate traffic. I’m still building my traffic stats up, but it’s tripled in the last month or so (and not from facebook). Like everyone else, I’m learning. I’m learning not to waste my time on worrying about how many back links I’m getting and where from. I’m learning to write my articles well, to provide good, useful information to people that are interested in similar subjects. I’m learning to build a subscriber base.

I’m not suggesting that you don’t put together a good strategy of a few methods and techniques, but relax. If this stuff is work, then you are doing something wrong! Have fun.

For every five or six posts that I make, there is only one or two that I am writing in order to generate specific, targeted traffic. Why? Because it takes too damn long to get all of the necessaries out of the way so that the article or post will rank well on the search engines. Since I like to post everyday, or close to it, trying to hit #1 for everything is just a bit ridiculous. Sometimes I just want to write, sometimes I just have something to say – or carry on about.

My Crazy Linking Strategy, So Cool I Can’t Keep Up!

When I am ranking I do have a strategy, I do have a process and if you would like to copy it, then be my guest. It goes like this:

  1. Bad-ass research – You just have to find the right key phrase. Good traffic, but not a lot of competition. A little is OK, but not a lot.
  2. Write an interesting article – This isn’t that hard. Remember that you are unique, some people will relate to you, some won’t. Write for yourself. Just make sure it is useful material for the next guy. If you have a sense of humor, use it, but don’t make it a comedy piece unless you are a comedian and it is a comedy piece.
  3. SEO – Make sure all of your on page SEO stuff is sorted out properly. h1,h2 and h3 tags with the key phrase, title with the key phrase, key phrase in the body 1.5% to 3% density, an image with the alt phrase set to your key phrase, an internal follow link and any external links made no follow links. Got that?
  4. Pings! – Go to pingler.com and send out pings. You should also have an updated ping list set up in your WordPress site also. Yippee! Don’t spam with your pings. There is a good plugin that you may want to install titled cbnet ping optimizer. Sort of guards against you accidentally pinging over and over when you are updating a post.
  5. Ping.fm – There it is, set up your social bookmarks and submit links to all of them. This takes care of facebook too (link your YouTube account with your facebook account and that will also give you a good post on facebook.)
  6. Socialmonkee – If you don’t have a socialmonkee account, get one, it’s free to use and it works! Those are two wonderful criteria for joining any bookmarking site!
  7. Second article – Now write a second article on the same key phrase and submit this one to ezinearticles.com – they are still the King when it comes to ezine sites.
  8. Third article – Told ya this was work! Write a third article and spin it with the best spinner software. Get a 75% or better spin on your article and then generate 500 or so articles.
  9. Submit Articles – First post articles on five to ten article directories pointing links back to your original post. Copy these URL addresses – you’ll need them later.
  10. Post on Unique Article Wizard – Take 3 of your spun articles and post them on unique article wizard. Point the links in the author’s resource box to your blog post and domain.
  11. Submit more articles! – Submit to ten more articles with links pointing back to the second tier articles (the original articles you submitted to).
  12. Unique Article Wizard…again! – Post another three articles on UAW. Link back to the original articles.
  13. Hubpages and Squidoo – use both hubpages.com and squidoo.com and point the links back to your domain and post.
  14. Video – Make a video around the same key phrase. Post the video on YouTube with links back to your blog post. Go to ping.fm again and post to your social sites with this video.
  15. Unique Article Wizard Act III – Submit yet another three articles to UAW and link back to your hubpages and Youtube video.
  16. PDF – Make a pdf file of your blog article and submit it to:
    1. Scribd.com
    2. SlideShare.com
  17. Take a break, you deserve it!

Now that you have “the list,” get off of your butt and make something happen. Experiment, find out what works for you. Don’t stop until you start seeing the results you want to see. Whether you are just putting a bunch of information out there to get off of your chest or you are trying to make money online (I do it with simple money making programs and more) at least now you have an idea of how to get the natural, organic traffic from the search engines.

If you are like me, you are going to want to get this thing going to the point where it is getting bigger on its own and you are sipping Mai Tai’s and curling your toes in the sand, but for God’s sake, no matter what, make sure you have a good time – this is suppose to be fun!

In terms of how long does success take depends on the system that is applied to the program and you. As far as a system is concerned, you want something that is generic as well as ensuring that the system is one that a new person can duplicate.
