When bloggernoob first started, i spent a lot of time doing the forums rounds. It was difficult to get attention even tho i was heavily doing all of the free marketing. I could have easily given up but i didn’t. I even got some paying gigs out of the deal. Of course the money wasn’t much(like $5 max) but i was able to start making money with bloggernoob.
I’ve cut down on the time i spend in web forums but i really think you should do the forum round every week. Recently, i posted some of my ads for sale on digitalpoint and i received quite a few advertising requests. If i just left my ad page and not marketed my ad space, i would be left with a bunch of affiliate ads and empy space. But because i do these forum rounds, i get these private ads filled up. I made over a hundred dollars on these ads.
If you want to sell your private ad space, you have to market it. No if, and, or buts about it. No body is going to email you to purchase ads. So it’s up to you to go out and sell. Sell, Sell, Sell. ABC baby. Always Be Closing.
Make money blogs talk a lot about how to make money. But it’s rare to find a site that will really show you how. I mentioned numerous times that you have to go and get it. If you want to get paid by blogging, you better put in some effort. There aren’t a lot of make money blogs that can afford the luxury of passive income. If you want to make money with you blog, you have to work for it. Whether it be paid posting or private ad sales, you have to go out and get those gigs. Don’t slap on adsense and expect a bunch of hits. Don’t expect you’ll make a killing on those affiliate links. Even affiliate links, you gotta market those suckers. Get people to join under you. Keep writing about those high paying affiliate links. Be honest, and review those programs in detail.
Above all, you need traffic to make money online. I read a lot of no name make money blogs and they all complain about not making any money. That’s because you don’t have any traffic. If you look in my first few posts, it’s obvious that i was a complete noob. I didn’t know how money was made online. I figured that putting up a few affiliate links would do the trick. I thought i was going to make a ton with adsense. But sure enough, i was wrong. I felt like a sucker, and i was a sucker. But i didn’t give up and i found out ways to make money online. It’s pretty easy. Just gotta get over the initial hump. Now, i feel very confident that i could make at least 30 bucks everyday with this blog. Do you want to know how to make 30 bucks every day? It’s simple. I’ve covered it many times over in my previous posts. Basically you gotta get traffic, do some paid postings, and market your affiliate links. And market your private ad sales. That’s it. Just keep doing these things. Find your own unique way of marketing your blog and you can make a few dollars too.
