How To Make Money Blogging From Day 1 With A Brand New Blog.
Like I stated earlier, starting a blog knowing you have to wait for a few weeks to months before you start seeing results kinda takes the wind out of your “take-action” mojo.
But it's my hope, with the few reasons and solution I'll discuss with you today, you'll finally decide to begin and shape your tomorrow's story.
First, let's take a look at a few of my reasons as to why you should.
My 5 Reasons Why You Should Start Blogging Today.
You see, I didn't always blog; for a time that is. But when I did, I finally discovered the following reasons as will you too.
- It's A Reliable Asset.
During my time working online, I've built several money-making machines and I can assure you blogging is super reliable.
First, you won't have to worry about waking up one day only to discover your asset has been suspended for an unknown weird reason.
- It's Super Predictable.
The money a blog generates is always predictable month after month with surprisingly regular super high incremental jumps.
And Not unless you do something crazy like forgetting to renew your domain (recently happened for this blog :)), all will be well. Even so, the bounce back is always speedily (as I'm experiencing).
Other than that, you can be sure of your pay every day and end of the month.
- Awesome Traffic Monster.
If you've been struggling to generate traffic to your products and offers, blogging will surprise you every day with its sheer awesome power to get you all the traffic you want; to do with as you wish.
Without targeted traffic, making money online will be a hassle every time for you. A blog will fix this for you.
- Emergency Cash Cow.
This one should really get you excited. I mean whenever you want a quick influx of cash, flipping a blog is a tried and true method.
So not only will you be making money, you'll be able to cash out all of its then value at once.
And get this, since selling a blog depends on how much it's making at the time, with the solution discussed here today, you'll be able to increase your starter blog's value in a few days.
And as such, demand a whole lot more without working much. 🙂
- Monetization Haven.
You can successfully monetize your blog in so many ways, such that it's hardly plausible to say there's a blog that can't make even $1 minimum, no matter how terrible it might be.
And as you know, if a business can generate $1, it has the potential to generate more.
And even if all fails, you can convert that thing into an app so fast, and get that mobile ad money coming in.
This is the reason why I have never created any blog that failed. They've all made me money, no matter how I treat them (seriously or neglected).
So you can be sure, when you commit to starting a blog, that thing HAS to MAKE YOU MONEY. FACT! 🙂
And now, let's see the easiest way you can start monetizing your blog from day one to start earning ASAP.
How To Monetize Your Blog Easily To Start Earning ASAP.
For you to start earning from day 1 with your blogging efforts, and you'll agree with me, you have to monetize.
Now I know you may say, you don't want ads on your site and whatnot. You want to keep your site clean :). Good on ya, mate!
If you start a YouTube channel, don't you want ads? Do the Ads make your YouTube channel unprofessional?
In fact, recently YouTube has amended their terms and they can monetize your videos even if you aren't yet accepted in their partner program.
So, ads might/will show to your visitors but you won't be earning nada!
Face It! People are used to ads, and what's a few ads if the content is helpful?
With your blog, you have all the freedom to monetize your blog, when, and where.
And you'll love this solution if slapping a few ads on your blog doesn't appeal that much to you. I used to be like that BTW.:)
But here's the thing, since you're just starting, have the Ads on.
It might not be much, but the small Ad revenue you'll start getting will certainly encourage you to keep going. Better than quitting early on due to a lack of progress results.
Anyway, with that out of the way, what's this Ad solution you might be asking?
Push Notification Ads!
I will tell you all about it in the next section and also share with you some of the results my testing has yielded thus far.
So let's jump in!
What Are Push Notifications?
Put simply, push notifications are those small, rectangular, and unintrusive messages that pop up either at the top left or right corners of your browser window when you visit a website.
Like the one you saw when you landed on this website. I'm sure you saw one, did you?
How You Get Paid From Push Notifications.
How this works, is that advertisers pay publishers (owners of websites) a certain amount of money to display their messages to his/her audience.
Now for every display of that message, a certain amount of money is given to you. This depends on what you decide to go with, either get paid per impression (when they display) or get paid per sign up (when users accept to be promoted to).
You can test these two options to find out which one works best for you, and let it run.
Personally, I decided to test out the Per Impression option. And the results from that test are as shown below.
Granted, it isn't much or life-changing money for publishers. But rest assured it can help you increase the valuation of a starter blog right out of the gate.
And better yet, keep you from quitting because of seeing big fat zeros every day.
Remember the aim is to get you earning from Day 1. Not to get you set from Day 1. If you want such a method, I have one here that's already done for you that will pay you $100 commissions a pop. 🙂
Anyway, at this point, you might be already asking how you can get started with this push notification system.
And as such, in the next section, we'll look at which company I went with.
The Push Notification Monetization Platform I Used.
Now, there's no shortage of monetization platforms that incorporate push notifications as one of their methods.
And as such, I decided to keep things simple and go with one whose name I had known for a while.
Plus they said and promised so much on their homepage, that I simply had to see for myself.
And especially the weekly pay promise, that really reeled me in. 🙂
How To Get Started With PropellerAds.
PropellerAds is an advertising network for online marketers and web publishers to drive quality and targeted traffic as well as earn from their efforts.
In this post, I will be covering the publisher side of things and in another post the advertiser side of things.
Now, to get started simply go to PropellerAds and sign up for a publisher account.
Once on the inside, add your site from the Sites section.
After this, you'll be required to verify your website's domain in a number of ways. Choose the one that works best for you, and verify.
Once you've verified your domain, you'll be asked to create/Add the Zones you need for your website.
These “Zones” are the various monetization options available for you to take advantage of; Popunders, Interstitials, Banners, etc.
In our case here, I chose the Push Notifications option. Feel free to play around with the other options.
When you decide to Get the Tags for a certain Zone option, you'll get another prompt to Name and Specify further how you'll like to be paid.
After this, you'll get detailed instructions on how to install the tag on your blog/site and start getting that money rolling in.
If you're using WordPress, they have a Plugin that you'll search from the WordPress repository, install, login in using your credentials, and simply choose your chosen Zones to display.
When you want to add more Ad Zones later, simply go to the Sites section, and click on the “+Add Zone” option.
You can similarly access your Ad progress results from the Statistics Section.
Granted the CPM's aren't great as you can see and heavily fluctuate.
Even so, you can play around with other Zones and settings to see which one you like best.
This is the best way to keep your site looking neat if you don't like Ads all over the place whilst still generating money from every visitor to your site.
Plus like I said earlier, it's better to sell a site that shows promise, and PropellerAds can help you with the stats.
I know by now you have ideas floats in your mind on what you'll do with this information. And it's Good! Take action, and bring that bacon home.
Conclusion: Is It Worth It?
It all depends on what that means to you.
If you're looking to earn a full-time income from this, it's far away from being worth it.
Whereas if you want quick stats to help you increase the value of a blog/site that is practically dead or with a trickle of traffic, PropellerAds will help you with this.
If you're just starting with blogging and want to see something, to keep doing something, then PropellerAds will be a nice Keep-going-you-got-this friend.
I cannot explain enough how disempowering it is to see zeros everywhere when you start blogging. “Does this even work?“, “When will it ever work?“, “Is this yet another scam?“, etc.
And get this, the minimum payment threshold for PropellerAds is $5 like you saw earlier. Not $50 or $100. So seeing results will be sooner for even greater motivation. 🙂
And when you start blogging, real “now” motivation trumps unseen tomorrow hopes. It's what will get you there.
That's it for this how to make money blogging from day 1 post, and it's my hope you found it super helpful.
And until, next time.
