    Hi Donna,

    Great post on making money on a blog.

    I think the best tip is #4: “Step 4 – Consider the costs involved and commit to spending money to build your business. If you don’t want to spend any money, I’d suggest you get a job, save some for the purpose of starting your blog, then come back to this article.

    For some reason many new people coming online still think everything is free and instant.

    Many need to read this post over and over.

    Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.

      Hi Monna

      Yeah I don’t know where people get this impression that it doesn’t cost money to run a blogging business online.

      Every business costs money for investment, consulting, advertising etc..

      I guess it’s because it’s so much cheaper to run a business online than offline brick and mortar.

      That’s true.

      But you still have to incur some expenses.

      If you try to get away from that then you won’t have much of a chance of succeeding.

      Hi Vishwajeet

      There are very many ways to monetize your blog.

      But when you first start a blog you have to make sure that those monetization schemes are built into it.

      So you have to decide what kind of products and services to sell and then feature those in your content and in your sales links.

      There are so many ways to go with this.

      That’s one of the big reasons that is important to hire a good coach or mentor to avoid so much pain and cost with the tedious and usually dead-end trial-and-error method.

    Donna this is a sensational post 😉 Excellent soup to nuts guide. Amazes me how bloggers expect to make money blogging but don’t want to spend a dime. Businesses require an investment. The first being to buy your domain and hosting and to get on WordPress dot org. So glad you mentioned that because more bloggers need to wake up to this fact.

    Hi Donna,

    This is indeed a remarkable post. I will call it a tutorial or a mini guide for setting up a blog and making money from it. Back in the days, setting up a blog can be a lot of stress, but today one can easily setup a blog in minutes with a few clicks. But the point here is not just setting up a blog, but making money from it. That’s where you need to invest to learn the ropes of making money. For example, you cannot just place banners and stuff and expects clicks to start making money, there are blogging best practices and formulas to get you up and running.

    However, I love the tips your presented. Good job!

    Hi Donna,

    It is well known that most of the times a newbie blogger start a blog without even understanding how to start a blog. And we all know that when you do not follow steps you can fall in the pit.

    Blogging is like walking on the sand you cannot expect to be successful if you do not behave like a pro from day one.

    One should not only focus on how to start a blog but also focus on why he is starting a blog.

    A blog can make all the difference only when you understand what you want to achieve with it and follow the tips shared in this article to start a blog.

    Glad you shared these.

    Hello maam,
    Very well explained. As far as blogging is concerned, 90% of blogs are built to make money and yes you need a systematic approach to make it work.

    Email marketing is very important and the common notion that “why should I start?”. “I’m new who will subscribe me?” and these things are the #1 killer in the growth of list building. I’ve been there, done that.

    I wish every newbie understands the benefits of link building, sooner than later.

    Thanks for educating bloggers in this direction.

    Best regards,
    -Swadhin

    For any new blogger looking out to make a mark, it is important to follow the pattern. For a new domain, it could get hard to actually rank for competitive keywords. For those situations, one can pay all the attention to email marketing, SEM and direct selling.

    If they get a good enough DA/PA then they can start to rank and target the keywords.

    Thank you for the awesome post. keep up the good wor 🙂

    Awesome piece, Donna.

    If I’m to choose a new business to do again, I will still start with blogging. The reason is because it opens the door to all manner of opportunities.

    Having your own media body is something worth celebrating. And making money off it makes it even more fun.

    Thanks for sharing.
