For some reason the goal of making $100 a day with blogs or websites is the Holy Grail for many people looking to make money on the Internet. For many this is seen as a cut off point to knowing that you can make serious money, and for others it is a goal to quit the day job and make money solely from bogs (TYPO BUT OFTEN APPROPRIATE) via Internet marketing.
This post will tell you how to earn $100 a day from blogs.
But, and you knew there was going to be one, if you are lazy, un-motivated and not willing to put in the time and effort then you may as well not bother reading any more. Anyone who tells you that making money via Adsense or affiliate programs is easy is a liar. Well, I did say making money on the Internet was easy is that post but that was in terms of just putting in the work once you know the basics of how things are done and how search engines work. The work is the main thing that you need to be persistent with.
In this article I will be keeping things fairly basic so many readers may know some, or most of what I say already, but if you have been in this game for more than 6 months to a year, after knowing the basics, then if you are not making $100 a day, especially after a year, then I think you are not motivated enough to do it. Or something is seriously amiss.
The Make A $100 A Day Magic Formula
Pleeeeeeeease. If you see that and you probably have, then I bet it was for an e-book right? Keep the cash and buy a few domain names, it will be money better spent. Let’s go through the basics of what we need to know to make a good daily income from writing blogs for money:
- Send me $50 and I will let you enter my secret club (just joking) 😉
- We need to know how to do basic keyword research, I now prefer to often use Wordtracker
- We need to know how to get keyword specific backlinks. Use the Postrunner system, it is $1 for the first month and the best way to get some quality backlinks apart from the other items on the sidebar
- We must know that we should write post titles with the words we want traffic for
- And we must write lots of content. And I mean lots and lots and lots and……..
It doesn’t sound like much does it?
It took me a long time to get to that understanding. Now it sounds so simple. I spent months and months getting backlinks from places like Ezinearticles with just the full URL of blog posts, no keywords at all. It won’t hurt sites long term to have a good mix of links like that but it is not the most direct of routes to ranking well in search engines.
The basics are basic but only once we know them.
We need to get links to our blog posts from anywhere we can. Use Infobarrel, shetoldme, and the millions of article directories out there. And never stop until every post you wrote is at number 1 in the main search engine. You should always use revenue sharing sites like those linked to for backlinks if possible, you make money at the same time. We made $7 from Infobarrel yesterday, just for having backlinks (no brainer).
Have post titles that are the exact term people will be typing in to a search engine and then write a post around that topic.
Do it over and over again.
Okay, a little simplified but that is basically it. Let’s get down to some kind of formula for making $100 a day in six months. I think many could do it if they put in the work, I know I could make more than that extra in six months, and you can believe I will. So, here is my recommendation for how to do this, it is not to be copied exactly, rather it is an example of how I personally would go about it, we are all different, and all have different ways of going about blogging to make money, this is what works best for me.
But first, some expectations. Let’s say you know the basics about what is written above. Backlinks, post titles, domain names etc. Took me six months as I was an idiot but this site, sites like Grizz’s and others are a real shortcut to knowledge.
A year of making content and working hard, every evening and all weekend or all day 5 days a week if you have no job:
$12, 000 a month.
I think that is obtainable and where we are at now for good months. Christmas could see you doing much more if you do the right products. We have that with two people working pretty much full time every day but as we are paranoid there is a lot of overlap with content and often we skip some work time for other chores. I think that at the least a person who is dedicated and puts in hours every day should be on $9, 000 a month or $300 a day, a lot of work but for a year and then to be your own boss it is worth it, no?
So, how to at least obtain $100 a day blogging?
You must put in the work and that is most important. Here is a rundown of how I would go about it:
Firstly I would not choose Adsense as my business model, it is too restrictive and if something happens to the account it is back to zero. Rather go for using Amazon or be an affiliate for one of the thousands of companies that are on cj.com.
To start I would buy a good 20 or so domain names.
Do keyword research to look at a niche that has lots of products within it. Personally I would not think too niche like pink belts for fat women but go for something more general like cheapbelts.com.
For each of those sites you then have the opportunity to write posts until you are sick of it, and you will be, and if you are not then you are not working enough. For each site simply go through them all for a few months adding content. Write about branded products and general keywords, buying keywords though.
Little tip time (hooray)
Once you have a general niche look at all the products within it on Amazon. As you type a product in to amazon or a general term a drop down list appears with the top searches people have typed in relating to that term. Write a post about each one of those terms using the exact same terms. You know people are doing searches for them, regardless of those lying keyword research tools many spend too much time using (just me guys, sorry, no offence).
I digress (I know, I know)
So, if we buy cheapbelts.com we can pretty much guarantee that if we rank for the main term we will get some traffic. I haven’t looked at any tools but there is no doubt that people will be searching for that a little. But even if the results are poor for that term the point I am trying to get across is that we are not making a sniper site as many like to call sites that target one keyword. We are being bold and we are going to dominate every keyword there is to do with our niche.
We will get an initial 20 or so articles on each of as many sites as we possibly can buy for a set of general keywords. We will then write product specific posts about an item. We can go a number of options here and for our main domain name. We can try to go for belts.com which is very unlikely or beltreviews.com or cheapbelts.com or whatever is available and takes our fancy.
Reviews is a popular word for searchers to type and should be part of some of your domains. Cheap, buy, best price, for sale etc are all words good for domains but also for specific product posts. Just get on with it and just get the main term in the domain name. We are targeting everything within our niche so are not just relying on ranking for the domain name, but obviously the better it is the more traffic we will eventually get.
I can pretty much guarantee that if you get a good number of such sites up and running and use Amazon or another affiliate program you will be making good money in six months time and in a year you will be retiring the day job.
What you will find is that some of the sites you have written lots of content on and allowed to age will get lots of traffic with little backlinks, or at least an OK level. Others will be useless at converting and people simply will not buy. It is a numbers game. No one makes all their blogs successful. A number of them will begin to shine. They will draw more traffic and this traffic will convert in to sales better. You will discover this as you go. Some will be real winners and it is at this point, after a number of months, that you should begin to change direction.
See which sites are making the most money. See which ones convert the easiest in to sales. And then go full out bonkers on them.
- Get content on them every day
- Use every buying keyword you can think of for each product in as many posts i.e post titles as it takes
- Write and write some more
- Fill the site with as many keyword rich post titles as you can bear, then do some more
- Get backlinks every day to the winning websites that make you money
- Hone it in until you are working a few sites as much as possible
- Make some new sites with slightly more specific or niche topics that you have found convert well, maybe pink belts for fat women did convert well after all. Buy the domain, get new hosting from the banner on the side. Set up the site and now you can not only get more positions in the search engines for a popular term you know makes money but you can link to your main site and get more traffic and a backlink too.
- Expand the best money making blogs until you have lots of sites that are within the niche all linking to your main site. Or go full out adding content and backlinks all the time to one site
- Write about your topic everywhere you can. Get backlinks from everywhere. Day after day send more links to improve ranklings (another appropriate typo)
- Do not stop until every article you have written is number one in the search engines.
- This will be your life
Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
Bet you don’t bother and stay working for the man.
Me, I have a Thai Island to buy so need to get back to work.
Many people will simply say I am being unrealistic about how much you can earn. I don’t think so. We are surprised how well we now do on some days and I know a lot of people are a lot more focused than us. Hell, five o’clock for us is pretty much vino time and no evening work is ever done. Others will have to work only in the evenings as they have jobs. If you want to give up your day job in a year then you need to tell family and friends you are out of the picture until late evening and are going to make money online. They will laugh at you.
It happened to my girl. She got laughed at for saying we were going to make money online. Now we make more in a day than many people earn in a week so in your face is what you can think to anyone who thinks you won’t make it.
You can. A years hard work out of a lifetime is a small sacrifice to then have your own hours and give up the job you hate. Your life is then open to whatever you want to do. You can work anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Your whole life will completely change and you will no longer be a slave to the man.
This work is not glamorous, but it is exciting. You get up in the morning having no idea if you have made $100, or $600, it is as variable as it can possibly get. But the best part is that when you are out with friends or family on the weekend and your thousands of pages of Internet content are still being looked at by Internet searchers you are still earning, beautiful.
I hope this has motivated you. You can do it if you put in the hours, it is all about hard work. But after a year, who knows, you could take it easy if you have reached your goals and be living the life you always wanted. Just get to it and work hard.
