The road to making money online is paved with blogs

Depending on who you talk to, you’ll get a few different answers about the best path to making money online, but one of the clear winners has always been blogging. When newbies or even experienced online business owners need to get the word out about their goods and services, the blog is the preferred method for several very good reasons.

  • Blogs are a cheap way of Internet advertising. Once you start looking into it, you’ll see that Internet marketing is one of the cheapest ways to go. And at the top of that list are blogs. With all of the open source CMS vehicles that are available today like Joomla and WordPress to name just a few, there’s no reason why the average business owner large or small can’t have a customized blog. These work well as part of your website or as a separate site that points to the main website. Either way,  getting a blog up and running is a pleasant surprise cost wise. You’ll notice a big difference from the more traditional types of advertising like radio and television.
  • When you ask ‘What is online advertising?’ and you get the answer inexpensive, you might be sold right away until you find  out that blogs are flexible too. When you get the right CMS, you’ll be able to adjust the content on your blog as you see fit. This can come in handy when you’re delisting or adding items to your inventory, but you need to be careful with the freedom. If you’ve bought professionally written content, the chances are you’ve bought blogs that are optimized with keywords as well. Changing that combination without expert advise can hurt your page rankings.
  • Blogs can be informative.  More so than with other types of Internet advertising, blogs give you the chance to get a customized message across and hammer away at your branding efforts.  The idea behind them is you’ll attract more prospects by supplying value added information than with a hard sell.  That philosophy also allows you to add more weight to the message that you’re trying to get across about the goods and services that you’ve got to sell.

Remember that making money online is a big industry with new players entering the field on a constant basis, so you’ll need to search for the people that have a good understanding of how essential blogs really are.

I think using blogs is a better communication tool as it bridges the between strangers on the web. You provide them with quality information they need and they will find you no matter where you are and stick to you like bees and honey. The internet would be a very different place if it is to be without blogs.

Very well written article. The blogosphere is too crowded with spam blogs that have only intention to make money. Quality Information is hitting a new low point.

    The true ones have to continue writing and educating and I think over time they will be ahead of the other blogs in your niche.

    Quick money really doesn’t happen in my opinion, and you just will never find the answer.

Hi Rob,
Blogging is probably one of the best ways to making money online. Adding advertizements to your blog is a really great way too. Great article!

Its good to read a well written article and I agree with Srivathsan and quality information is most definitely hitting a low point. It is a shame there are so many spam sites BUT this doesn’t mean to say there are nothing good out there. Blogging is a great way (and cost effective way) to generate interest in your own products and services which then leads to more sales. All you need it time and lets face it, you need plenty of time to make a significant impact but it is still one of the best ways to promote.

We live in an age where you really need to have a blog for your business. Especially if you’re wanting to use social media. Any good stories you share on Twitter, or content you syndicate online can also go on your blog.

Blooging is always the best way to make money online. Starting a blog is a child’s play. With the presence of CMS tools like Joomla, drupal, blogspot and wordpress, one can get their online presence felt. In the mean time they can make good money from it. If your blogs get good amount of visitors then you can sell link space and earn money. Other than this, you can use various publisher programs to generate a passive source of income. Anyone who is interested in starting a blog first don’t think about money. Think of what you offer to your readers. Think about your contribution to the online community. You follow these steps and money will come flowing in and that too in good numbers.
