It has been said that blogging will be the new trend in the 21st century. It is easy to see why. If you do not have any idea what blogging is, it is something like publishing an online diary.
Everyday, more and more Internet users log on to the Internet in search of good, solid information they can use. And they want it for FREE. Blogging is an easy and effective way to provide it while expanding your customer base seamlessly and getting targeted traffic funneled to your online business.
This could be one of the main reasons for their skyrocketing popularity, the fact that anyone can create a blog, may it be personal or business. All one need is something to write about, which is entirely up to him or her! In addition, web-based blogging is so simple that you will be shocked by its simplicity!
Whether you are authoring a personal or business blog, it is possible to earn money from it without ever selling anything. You may be skeptical, but a lot of people are making money from their blogs without selling a single thing!
Have I already got your attention?
Blogs can be authored in many different ways and contain every topic imaginable. Just remember that the only limits placed on blogging are by your own imagination.
Join me in this 4-part series of Blogging Your Way To Success as I teach you step-by-step on how to set up your own blog and earn money from it in the process.
Since this series has plenty to do with Internet Business, I am going to assume that you have already decided on what your niche is, bought your web hosting and domain name, and hopefully, you also have a product to sell (optional), may it be yours or other people's.
First Thing's First
You are going to set up an account with Blogger at www.blogger.com. It is a free tool and user-friendly. While there are many other blog services out there, I recommend Blogger the most because of the following reasons:
1) Blogger is free and owned by Google,
2) When you publish content, it automatically tells Google and it sends Google spiders to your website.
3) The internal links from your posts and archives builds the page rank of your blog and external pages where your Internet Business is concerned.
You can choose to host your blog either at blogspot or in your own server, if you have one.
Setting up Blogger is very simple as most of the process is described in simple English and should you need any help, the F.A.Q. desk probably has the answer to most of your questions.
