The process of creating a blog is easy enough, but actually getting people to your site and sticking around it another problem.
First you are going to want to build up some excellent content that people find value in. This is going to be the main reason why people visit your sites, so they can find relevant information they are searching on.
Once you have the content in place you are going to want to focus on the monetization of your site. This can be anything from ad placements, affiliate marketing, building your mailing list or even selling your own products. Whatever it is, just make sure it’s related to your blog content so they can work well off each other.
Assuming you already have these steps in place, the next thing that you should be thinking about is how to get more targeted traffic to your blog.
Pay per click marketing is an excellent method that you should be thinking about. While it does cost money (on a per click basis), you won’t have to worry about building incoming links and hoping for the best.
With pay per click marketing you get what you pay for, which is search engine traffic.
The reason why you should be focusing on pay per click marketing is because you can reach that exact audience for your site. If you are going to have a blog that talks about how to setup a blog, you can create an ad campaign targeted towards anyone who searches “create a blog” in the search engines, then they will see an ad for your site.
Doing this will allow you to focus on your traffic and monetizing. By creating a quality web site or blog and targeting your audience with exactly what they want, you are that much more likely to find profits and success within your niche.
