Congratulation, you have just published your blog in the world of the internet and working full of enthusiasm to monetize your hard work and make some money out of it, right?
Unfortunately, publishing a blog is not a big deal, the biggest challenge is to do its branding in the right way, so you can make the most out of it. If making money through a blog would as easy, then we did not have thousands of dollars in our pocket, and we’d be spending our days and night on the beach by drinking fancy cocktails. Very sad to say, this is not the way to the procedure of making money out of blogging works.
While expecting to earn even a single penny from the internet, you want to make sure, heaps of traffic are being generated on your blog.
It does not matter what monetizing platform you use. If you want to monetize your blog through banner ads (which is the worst possible ways of monetization, because it sounds like advertisers are purchasing ads from you, and they are making money from you) however, if you want to make money online just by showing ads on your blog, you want to make sure you are generating traffic to your blog.
Do not get me wrong, this is not the singular thing you should do: Getting a visitor from a Search Engine and start jumping on your bed and start sharing the happiness. Your main goal should convert your one-time visitor into subscribers.
Because 70% of the visitors you get on your blog may never come back to your blog again once they clicked button “X” and leave your blog. This is why it is so crucial to start concentrating on list building. If you do not know what list building is, then here is its clear definition:
“It is when a visitor subscriber to your blog, and when you publish new stuff on your blog, they get notified through email about a new update on your website.”
In this way, you generate hundreds and thousands of big traffic on your blog without any help.
You wanna make sure you have a goal set up in your mind for your blog. Are you blogging just for the sake of making money online? Do you want to generate sales to it? Do you want to grow email subscribers? Etc.
List building is one of the simple marketing strategies that a lot of pro bloggers have been using ever since they relieved its importance.
