A lot of my readers are noobs. So, i get a lot of emails asking for questions. I answer all of them. I know that it might get harder and more delayed as this blog grows, but i make it my personal goal to answer each and every email or comment. As long as you’re not trying to sell me anything.
I recently helped out two fellow bloggers. I’m not a super blogger, but i did figure out how to start a make money blog out of nothing. I haven’t spent any money on advertising. Just a few bucks promoting contests on my make money blog. I’ve managed to consistently get over 300 uniques a day from this blog. Not too shabby right. I’m an amateur but i do get paid. It’s pennies compared to the big timers, but it’s a lot more then most bloggers. Anyway, for the past week and a half, i’ve helped two noobies get over 50 visits a day. They new nothing of blogging 10 days ago. These two noobies are two of my off line friends.
One started a movie review blog. The other an interior design blog. I recommended those topics cause that’s what they do for a living. Screenwriter and interior designer. The first couple of days, i could tell they were frustrated and wanted to give up, but after that, they were smooth sailing. Don’t want to sound condescending, but i was so proud of those guys. They are addicts. I’ve tried to intervene, but they won’t have it. They check their blogs every chance they get. I wonder what’s going to happen when they start making a few extra bucks from their blogs.
I will mention how they progress as time passes.
How did they get 50 more visits a day? It’s not complex, you don’t need to read an ebook, you don’t need to pay for overpriced reviews, you don’t even need to spend that much time.
I just told them to write a post everyday and make sure there is a cool picture on the post. An attention grabbing post. Preferrably something sexy. I made them join entrecard and put the widget and drop around 20 cards daily and use the credit earned to advertize on the popular blogs in their niche. I told them to join blogcatalog and comment in a few discussion and join/add 60 friends a day. I told them to join mybloglog and join 10 friends a day. That’s it. Only takes them 30 mins a day to do the adding and joining. And probably around 30 mins to write the posts. One of them already started making money. Isn’t blogging grand.
These two are complete noobs. But i’ve helped them become certified bloggers. And here the kicker….They are idiots! Not mentally challenged, but they hate computers and they hate the internet. I think this will change in the next few months. If these two guys can blog, so can you.
