Make Money Online – Two Honest Ways

Everyone is rightly cynical about all the guru-type emails you get filling your inbox. Their schemes are like pyramid schemes. The guy at the top makes money by selling you a scheme that basically consists of selling the scheme to others. The guy at the top has the contacts and money to keep selling even after he has sold it to you. You would never have a chance of making a sale with the “experts” still selling.

This cynicism often extends to all things Internet related. This is not justified. There are ways to genuinely make money online that do not even need you to spend a cent. These all involve work, usually writing of one kind or another.

If you can string a few sentences together you can earn enough online to pay your mortgage. You can post articles onto your own websites, but it takes a lot of work to get visitors. It is easier to make money by posting your articles onto article directory sites that give you a good percentage of the advertising income that your work brings in.

Use your know how to make a little extra money by building a local community site for the area where you live. I have done this for Glanmire where I live in County Cork, Ireland.

You can build a site with free software called WordPress. You can buy a domain name and hosting together for $17 a year. Those are your only expenses. You can tell people about your site using free newspapers, after all this is News.

If you want local businesses to be able to build a page about themselves you will need to upgrade people to “Editor”. Leave the default user status as Subscriber and upgrade people when they send you an email. If you set the default user permissions to Editor your site will soon be snowed under in porn and hate pages.

How To Make Money Blogging By Sharing Your Experiences

If you are new to blogging, you may run into an issue with what to post about.  This is perfectly normal and can easily be fixed.  You just need to dig into some of your personal experiences and share some of them with your readers.  If you are serious about making money from blogging, you will want to get good at sharing your stories in your posts. They are some of your best content, and your readers love it.

1.  Write A List Up —  I am a big list person when it comes to blogging.  Take some time every week to generate a list of subject lines for your blog posts.  Once you do this you will be able to start to think about what you are going to write for the week.  You have a great opportunity here to find places where you can interject your stories into key blog posts for the week.

2.  Simple To Complex —  You can start with a simple story or reference to an experience you have when you are posting to your blog.  As you get better at doing this you can learn how to write a complete post about your experiences.  As you master this concept, you can actually put together a series of posts that cover a more complex concept and story.  Once you start to use a series of posts, you will be getting your readers to keep coming back to your blog to get “the rest of the story”.  This will help your traffic and income a lot.

3.  Tell Stories —  When you are covering your experiences, you can actually tell a story as you are doing this.  You can use these stories to show how you have overcome issues or found solutions to your problems.  As you are able. you can recommend products and services that will help your readers solve their problems.  When you are using stories as posts on your blog, you will get a much better read through rate that just sharing basic information.  This will allow you to make money with your blog, and you will also have happy readers that like your blog.

Sharing your personal experiences makes you an expert in your reader’s eyes. It also lets your readers know that you are willing to open up and let them know how your experiences can help them.   It is a great way to build a great following for your blog.
