How To Make Money Blogging (For Non-Bloggers)

Guys, this is going to be short (not really) and simple (really) and I want to invite you all to do this as I know it will benefit you all.

I am going to advise you all on how to build up some significant income with a blog but not a blog that will be read by bloggers. You have to write for non-bloggers and search traffic unless you are really gifted and lucky.  I am neither but I still make 4-digits a month.

Howie from Tactical Cash Flow and IB, recently posted on his blog and on the IB forums about the disconnect between bloggers income and that of their readers inomes. I contend there is a disconnect only because many readers simply aren’t doing what the blog owners are doing – they read about what they need to do but they simply aren’t taking action. This is my way of giving you all the opportunity to make your first thousand in a month in the simplest terms possible and I wan't to give you the opportunity to have a financial incentive in this blog post - not just me.

Step 1 – Think of a topic for your new blog
Really – pick any topic. Just make sure there are items for sale which are related to your topic which are sold in your local Wal-Mart, Target, or Sears. This is the topic that will make you $1000 per month.

Step 2 – Sign up for the Keyword Academy.
The first month is free (every month after that is $33) and all the tools you need to make a "money blog" are available to you as a member even during your first free month. I swear if you do not do this it is not even worth going on down this post just go back to what you were doing before.

People who read this blog (the few that there may be) need to make good money, there's little reason to be here if you are not and don't care to take action – I don’t want a disconnect between my readers income and my own.

For now I’m going to list my own affiliate link below for you to use but as more of you join I’ll add the affiliate links of others who have joined to the list that way you all can benefit from this plan of attack. New readers will simply choose which link to use at random.

To use Howie’s mantra, the readers of my blog should have a financial incentive in it’s success, not just me the author.

Signup for The Keyword Academy {choose a link at random} here or here, or here.
Once you join you can add your link to that list above as wellas the one at the bottom of this post.

Step 3 – Learn the TKA Tools
Watch the keyword Academy video in the members area on using Niche Refinery and read their eBook chapter on it. Both of these resources are available to members of TKA. You can also read my article on finding Keywords using Niche Refinery which is published on InfoBarrel.

The topic you chose in step 1 will be the main keyword you use to drive yoru Niche Refinery results. Start with your topic and use Adwords Keyword Tool to generate CSV files containing at least 2000 keyword ideas. Then upload those CSV files to Niche Refinery and let it show you the best 10-20 keywords out of the thousands you downloaded. Once you upload o Niche Refinery take the night off and come back to your results tomorrow or simply watch and read all there is to watch and read in the member's area of TKA - you could spend days doing this as there is so much info to digest in the members section.

Once Niche refinery processes your thousands of keyword options (should take about a day) it should be really easy to see which are the best 20 keywords relating to your topic.

Step 4 – Set up your Site
Setup a self-hosted Wordpress website using a carefully selected domain name which is topical to your topic. The Keyword Academy has videos and instructions on how to do this. Read them and watch the videos, you are a member there and they have staff who’s sole job is to help new members get started. Use their tools and use their support and get right to work. Just make it happen. 

Domains shouldn't cost you more than $10 a year and hosting shouldn't cost you more than $10 per month.  This is a cost of doing busienss, you simply have to do it.

Step 5 – Publish 20 Awesome Posts
Publish on your new blog really good, helpful, and comprehensive blog posts on all twenty of the really good keywords you identified above which closly relate to your topic. Make sure to include a Privacy Policy page and a contact page on youas these will be required once you begin monetizing the blog.

Step 6 - Backlink Your Posts Using PostRunenr
Once you post all 20 blog posts then you can start backlinking them using PostRunner, which is the backlinking tool provided to all TKA members. You can read my review of PostRunner here for more info on how it’s used. Seriously this is very important.

With PostRunner you write 300 word articles and publish them on other TKA members blogs. Each post can link out to two pages. This means that by writing ten 300 word articles on your topic you can backlink all 20 blog posts on your site using PostRunner.

This is where the work comes in and this is what most people simply don’t want to do. Publish PostRunner blog posts which are backlinking all of your 20 money-pages on routine schedule for the next three months. Every day.

They are blog posts not articles so they are really simple to make and they don’t have to be complicated. Just do it. Five a day with two links a piece will give each one of your main blog posts 45 backlinks after 90 days. 10 a day for 90 days with two links a piece will give each of your 20 main blog posts 90 backlinks.

Step 7 - Blog Like Your Normally Would (But Keep Backlinking)
At this point (90 days in) your main 20 articles should be making money – just keep backlinking those that haven’t yet made it to a #1 rank and if you want you can start blogging on the money-site just as you would when you were green and inexperienced. Each new blog post you create should using internal linking to go back to your main 20. if you work every day for a year you should be making a lot more money than your efforts are taking you today.

Just do it – it’s not complicated it’s just hard - but we’ve all done “hard” things before and we all have done what it takes to give ourselves and our loved ones a better life. Commit to a year of structured and efficient work and you will do well and you will probably do a lot better than going about it your own way. Don’t reinvent the wheel. The Keyword Academy gives you al the tools to make a living online all you have to do is the work.

It is a lot of work but at least you’ll know that the work will actually get you where you want to go. You are looking at a job of a minimum of five 300-word articles published every day for at least 90 days straight.  You can do it slower but your results will be far weaker as well - just committ to the work and enlist your spouce or a friend if need be - just get it done.

Here are the affiliate signup links once again. Remember mine is one of these and the others are my readers who’ve signed up. Once you sign up and get going signup fro their affiliate program and shoot me an email and I’ll add your link to the list. We all win and we all get closer to financial security just make sure to let us know how you are doing in the comments below and make sure to send new people with drive to this page as making a living online shouldn’t be reserved for the few people in the know – there’s enough room for us all.

  1. This is a GREAT post. I saw you and Howie's discussion on the IB forum and thought I'd swing in and see what you put together. It's like all your other posts are = AWESOME.

    I guess I took it for granted that people are out there creating non-blog websites to earn money online, but I'm slowly realizing that I was wrong.

    Anybody reading this should take it to heart. Better yet, hit "PRINT" and commit the steps to memory.

    The only thing I do differently is that I use article sites for backlinking, specifically Ezine (but also GoArticles occasionally). I'm not a member of the Keyword Academy, but have been considering it for quite some time; perhaps I'll look into that.

    Thanks again for the killer post!

    Lee, aka "Jerky"

  2. :) You're making me blush. :)

    Seriously though thanks and I hope it inspires youand others to take some serious action. Ezine is one great alternative to TKA but you have to mix it up. If you are not using PostRunenr Make sure to backlink using all the dofollow sites you can find. Ezines, GoArticles, ArticleBlast, Article Dashboard, Squidoo, InfoBarrel, Snipsly, PostUrOwn, and then start hitting related bogs for guest posts (not nessesarily for traffic but for the backlink).

    You'll have to email a lot of blog owners to find enough willign to accept your guest post.

    You can do it without PostRunner it's just harder to get diversity in the links you build. Good luck Lee!
