Caffeine boost not enough to get your heart pumping? Well maybe the thought of dollar signs will do the trick for you.
I’m not talking about giving away money out of my own pockets, nor will I give get-rich-quick formulas that do not really work. Instead, I’ll be giving you some tips on how to promote your own blog and hopefully make some money while you sitting in the comfort of your own home blogging away and sipping on a cup of coffee in the wee hours of the morning.
Most likely you are not new to the idea of blog monetization, but if you are it simple means making money from your blog. You can do this several ways including selling stuff on your blog, asking for donations, offering paid subscription, becoming an affiliate site, and of course, the ever present ads. No matter what monetization tactic you use the one common thing they share is the need for a good sized traffic on your blog for you to make a significant amount of money.
The problem with this is that people won’t come to your blog without any effort on your part. They need to learn of your blog one way or another if you want them to come. The good news is that there are easy ways to promote your blog.
One way you can promote your blog without breaking a sweat is by submitting your blog details on web directories like Blog Search Engine. Not all web directories work the same way, with most providing you nothing more than a listing on the directory. The thing I like about Blog Search Engine is that it provides a review for your blog aside from the link for their basic package which costs only $14.99. Signing up for package upgrades will earn you even more links from their blog network, make you’re the featured blog, and place a banner ad of your blog on their homepage.
While I recommend their services though, I urge you to use other blog promotion strategies to get more traffic in your site quickly.
