Use a easy platform.
Since you are going to write and not develop and design website so it’s better that you dedicate yourself to writing. You need to have enough time to write yourself a blog. So, you can start with a platform which demands less of your time in designing. There are some platforms like Weebly and Wix who have premade sites, you just need to format some of the parts and you ready to blog. You can also use WordPress, you can use free themes available in WordPress Theme Store and start your blog.
Unless you use analytics, you can’t really track the amount of traffic to your site. With analytics you can track the amount of time a user spends in your website plus the quality of your traffic. You can use Google Analytics for analytics.
If you have a lot of quality traffic coming to your website, you can easily monetise your website using AdWords. Your website needs to be AdWords compliant. AdWords will pay you for the clicks you get on their ads in your website. So, make sure you select the right category of advertisement where the users may click. Setting up AdWords is easy, but you need to make sure that everything is selected correctly so that you can make money through AdWords.
Use Sponsored Placements
You should have places in your website where you can easily promote sponsored advertisements. You can charge advertisers hundreds of dollars to advertise in your website depending on the amount of traffic you procure in your website. You should only promote contents in your website which is related to the niche you are writing your blog. That will help you to send quality users to the advertiser’s website. Good promotion means they might be returning customers or they might refer new clients to you.
You can also write sponsored posts and make money from your website. You can sell your sponsored post for fixed amount of money. Usually you can ask the advertiser to write an article and you’ll simply post it in your website, this will reduce the amount of work and you’ll make easy money. You can also ask the advertiser to refer your blog in their website and hence you can also get free traffic to your website.
You can also do Affiliate Promotion. You should also choose a company related to your niche, this way there is a great chance that the users might click on the affiliate link or go to the affiliate website and make a purchase. You will earn a percent of the customers money. This is a great way to make money from blog.
