Flipkart receives tremendous traffic, orders and sales throughout the year. Anyone residing in India and having an Indian bank account can use this affiliate program and start generating income online easily. The best part is, that you don’t need a website of your own to start. You can use social media, free articles or anything at your disposal and join thousands of others who are making decent income online using this opportunity.

There are several other affiliate programs available too like Amazon’s India Associate Program. I tried that too but I will be frank enough to tell you that I never made over a couple of hundred bucks. So, Flipkart’s Affiliate Program has worked best for me so far.

Here is my website which I use for promoting Flipkart’s products : Make My Kart. This website has over 22,000 Flipkart products and runs 24/7 to generate affiliate commissions for me.

If you too want to start such a website, contact me vi form below and I will revert back to you with my services that I can offer.

WordPress is the leading blogging platform of today’s web. It was founded by Matt Mullenweg at the tender age of 19 and it has now become a raging success and the talk of every other internet forums. This web software allows you to create websites and blogs of your own choice and that too for free. With thousands of themes and plugins available to choose from, you can transform your website according to your whims and desires. WordPress now boasts of over 60 million users and has both a downloadable mobile phone app and a desktop version as well. Publishing blogs had never been as easy before and WordPress has acquired contracts from media giants such as The New York Times, Motley Crue and Blondie etc. The success of WordPress however belongs to the hundreds of community volunteers which help in expanding it and cause it to reach new heights.

A post is an entry that has comment fields underneath them and are included in any site’s RSS feed. Post are usually displayed in reverse order on the home page. The process of writing and publishing posts on WordPress is fairly simple, here’s how it’s done:

  • You’ll first need to log in to the administration panel of WordPress i.e. Dashboard.

  • Now click on the ‘Posts’ tab in the menu displayed to you on the left side of the page.

  • Then click on the ‘Add new’ tab from the sub-tab menu that opens up.

  • Now you’re in the main editor. Just like when you’re writing an email this editor has a place at the top for your title. Make sure that you have a catchy title so that you can attract users to read it.

  • Beneath it there’s a blank for the main body of the post. Here you can jot down all your thoughts and ideas here. The numerous options for font styles and sizes allow you to tweak your text according to your liking. There are icons in the tool bar that allow you to insert various types of media including photos, videos and even music.

  • Once you are happy with your editing you can add additional tags to your post. Depending upon your need select the relevant category and add tags. You can also make other selections from the various selections given below the post.

  • It is not necessary to publish your post right away; you have the option of saving your draft. You can also preview your post and take a look at how it would look when you publish it to the web.

  • Before you publish the post you can set the status of visibility of your post, whether you would like it to be public i.e. view-able by anyone or private, even password protected.

  • With advanced options you can even change the publish date and time of your post.

  • When you are satisfied with your post you can publish it to the web. After you’ve published it you can check out the live version of your post by visiting the blog. You can even re- edit the blog via the edit menu.

So there you go, think of invigorating new ideas for your blog and publish them easily using WordPress and its convenient publishing process.

SEO – A One Time Game or A Continuous Process?http://wpmoneyblog.com/seo-one-time-game-continuous-process/ http://wpmoneyblog.com/seo-one-time-game-continuous-process/#comments Mon, 29 Sep 2014 05:53:25 +0000 http://wpmoneyblog.com/?p=5534 SEO or Search Engine Optimization requires you to continuously put some work into your site even after the site has been optimized once for search engines. SEO is not like plug and play where you can just optimize your site once and leave it forever expecting it will keep growing in the search results. Big names in the SEO industry like Brent Franson say that bloggers and webmasters have a tendency to think that once a site has been search engine optimized, there nothing left over to do. They assume that the search engine optimization techniques which they used like adding web content, backlink building, keyword research etc. would be yielding the same results and benefits even after two or three years, let alone months.

But this is a completely false assumption according to me. The actual power of SEO relies upon its constant use. The consistent and repeated use of SEO is essential to bring a website to the...]]> SEO or Search Engine Optimization requires you to continuously put some work into your site even after the site has been optimized once for search engines. SEO is not like plug and play where you can just optimize your site once and leave it forever expecting it will keep growing in the search results. Big names in the SEO industry like Brent Franson say that bloggers and webmasters have a tendency to think that once a site has been search engine optimized, there nothing left over to do. They assume that the search engine optimization techniques which they used like adding web content, backlink building, keyword research etc. would be yielding the same results and benefits even after two or three years, let alone months.

But this is a completely false assumption according to me. The actual power of SEO relies upon its constant use. The consistent and repeated use of SEO is essential to bring a website to the top of the search results. You can get a website to rise a few places in a day’s work. But if you want to see the consistent rise in search engine traffic and rankings, it could take months of SEO and hard work. Even after achieving top rankings, you cannot just neglect and stop optimizing. To keep those rankings, you need to sustain the SEO on your website on a regular basis.

While there are plenty of reasons for this, one of the main reasons is that major search engines care about the freshness of the content that is put up. They want to direct people to sites that have brand-new material and are on the forefront of an industry. On top of that, search engines want to find active sites because that shows other people are going to those sites and using them, and the most active sites often provide the best Intenet-based communities for people to join. Because that is the goal, you can see why sites that have fresh content updated on a regular basis are going to rank higher than sites with old information and old pages that may not have been updated in months or even years.

The effect of SEO is also cumulative, and you have to keep in mind that other people are constantly working at it every day. If you want to keep up or stay ahead of them, you have to keep working in the same manner.

For example, let’s say that you put up 100 posts on your blog or website as part of your SEO campaign. You will notice a rise in your search engine rankings and traffic as your website will start to rise in the search results. But let’s say that you stop adding content after that for an year so just assuming that your rankings and traffic would be preserved. In that case, a blogger adding even 10 posts per month would get past you in the year and would replace you in the search results. This is of course assuming that his posts are atleast of the same quality as yours. In fact, anyone producing fresh and high quality content would get past you easily in the search results and you will lose everything you worked for. Hence, to get the best and long term benefits, your SEO campaign should be consistently monitored and improved.

  1. Ravi Chahar - 480 comments

I am glad to see that top three of the contestants were all Indians.

This contest saw some great contestants sharing their views and thoughts here on this blog.

So, here we go, according to the stats on the last day, the winners are as follow:

  1. Ravi Chahar – 480 comments
  2. Suprabhat Mondal – 268 comments
  3. Rajaraman K – 139 comments

Now according to these stats, Ravi Chahar’s total is greater than the combined total of Subprabhat and Rajaraman. So he should take away the complete prize of Rs.10,000 home.

But I suppose I would honor the second and third place participants too since they spent a lot of time and efforts too.

So the prize money being given is as follows:

  1. Ravi Chahar :- Rs. 6,250
  2. Suprabhat :- Rs. 2,500
  3. Rajaraman :- Rs. 1,250

This distribution, I suppose would be acceptable to everyone since I guess that everyone should get a piece of cake for their hard work.

All the winners will be paid before or till October 3, 2014. Any pending bonus prize money will also be paid during the same time.

Upcoming next I have a bigger blogging contest. I will update it very soon.

Yesterday’s contest was about a random winner who was to be chosen by a lottery system.

What I did was that I drew any three random numbers from yesterday’s comments. If two out of three comments were from the same author, that author was declared winner.

Luckily for me, I got this process done in the very fist time and the winner is “Virtuo Rohit”.

He joined us only a couple of days back and has won Rs.500.

Now. Time to announce today’s contest. Today’s bonus prize contest will be much more like Day 1. The contestant with most comments in the complete day will win the prize.

But there is a condition, there have to be atleast 3 participants competing in the contest and each should have atleast 20 comments shared by the end of the day. Otherwise the contest for today will stand nulled.

The prize money for today’s contest will be Rs. 750.

So in this post, I will expound on the 5 ways to monetize your blog – simple things you can do to improve your profit! Are you still with me?

Monetize your blog with these 5 best ways:

#1. Affiliate Marketing

A blog is a great way to promote affiliate products to your subscribers who trust and respect your opinion. The key to doing it successfully is to employ a subtle touch.
Oh sorry, you’re not familiar with what affiliate marketing is, right? It is the process of you advertising someone else’s product for them and if you get a sale for the owner then you get a good percentage of the sale, usually between 50% and 75%.

There are a few ways that you can use affiliate marketing as a source of income on your blog.

Firstly you can simply put picture or text adverts up in your sidebar so that people can click on them that way. Or alternatively you can slip an affiliate link to a product that you would like to recommend into one of your posts.
This way of putting affiliate links in usually gets you more clicks in a short time but it can annoy some readers if you keep reviewing products and trying to blatantly get money off of them instead of just writing good helpful content.

Here are some general guidelines:

  • Ask yourself what types of products your readers might be interested in.
    Think about the quality of the product — promoting just one or two inferior offerings (and there are plenty available) could be enough to destroy months of work building up trust and credibility.
  • A good promotion educates readers on the problem and how the product solves it. Consider ‘building up’ to a promotion by talking about a problem one week, and providing a solution the following week.
  • Spread out your promotions to avoid making your readers feel like they have subscribed to “1001 Ways to Part with Your Hard-Earned Cash”!

#2. Inserting Google AdSense

Another fabulous way to monetize your blog is through Google’s Adesense Program. Now, I mentioned this as the second way of making money online because it is one of the best known advertisers on the internet as well as being a good source of income for any website or blog.

The way that this income stream works is that you put some Adsense adverts up on your site and then every time one of your visitors clicks on one of those adverts then you get a payment from Google into your Adsense account.

Now depending on what niche you are in any one of these clicks can give you any money between a few pennies and about £10. It is fair to say though that £10 is really cool. I also mentioned this is my post 3 Effective Ways To Earn Money With Your Blog.

Let me reiterate more on this “money making stream”, Google Adsense is a risk-free way to make some money as it costs nothing to sign up. As with Adsense generally, the more targeted the content and the better your use of keywords, the more relevant the ads are likely to be, and the more money you will make.

How do I insert the codes on my blog?

Good question there folks. See, the easiest way to insert Adsense blocks into your posts is via the WordPress Adsense Deluxe plugin. This application provides shortcuts for automatically inserting Adsense code into your blog. All you have to do then is add simple HTML comments wherever you want the three ad blocks to show.

#3. Email Marketing

Email marketing is the ultimate marketing tool for bloggers. It allows you to instantly deliver your message directly to the inbox of readers. This makes it a more powerful marketing tool than Facebook or Twitter.

I encourage you all to start building your email list now. Do not wait until your blog is established. You should be collecting emails from day one. This will allow you to market all the products, services and monetization methods we have discussed in his post so far.

Email marketing is what separates hobby bloggers from professional bloggers. If you can build a list of a few thousand email subscribers, you are half way to owning a profitable blog.

#4. Sell Your Own Products

I am one of the advocates that blogging in itself does not make you money but rather what you do around blogging. I first heard this phrase from Sam Adeyinka and later thought of it and found out that he was in fact right!

So if blogging is not going to make me money, why do it then?

Quickly, 3 Reasons why you need to blog:

  1. It will make you an expert in your field
  2. It will connect you to the world and helps you to actually
  3. Make money online sharing your knowledge.

The selling of knowledge is HUGE. If you build up your position in your market, you can then sell quality information to that market. This can take the form of e-books, audio, videos, or all of the above. You can package them up or just sell them digitally. If you author the product yourself (recommended), then you keep 100% of the profit. Isn’t that cool?

#5. Writing ‘product name’ reviews

Writing product name reviews can be extremely lucrative as they are easy to get ranking highly in Google searches on “product name” + “review”. Even better, because people are already thinking of purchasing a product when they search for a review, blog reviews usually convert very highly!

The secret to writing successful product name reviews is to be honest — and place the product name throughout the post three or four times.

Just because you are trying to make a sale doesn’t mean you have to be glowing. In fact, reviews are more believable when the author is clearly taking an objective view and commenting on the negatives as well as the positives. Everyone knows that there is no such thing as pure perfection and trying to make something appear that way smacks of insincerity and motives that are blatantly financial.

“The Secret to a glowing and converting review is to be honest as possible as you can”. Sam Adeyinka

#6. Become a Reviewme.com writer

This isn’t exactly affiliate marketing, but it’s still a pretty decent way to make some money, which is why we are giving it a mention.

Reviewme.com is a site that brings bloggers and product owners together for mutual benefit. It’s widely recognised that blogging is extremely effective as advertising that isn’t advertising. The power of reviews, recommendations and general opinion pieces is huge and product owners are willing to pay bloggers good money to mention their widgets to readers with their ad defenses down.

Your blog is reviewed before being accepted by Reviewme so it’s a good idea to get it in good shape before applying. Once you’re accepted however, you can earn anything from $20 to $200 for each review you write.

#7. Paid & Sponsored Posts

Yes, you can get paid to review products and sites on your blog. Sites like PayPerPost and ReviewMe are popular options. I’ve seen some blogs sell this option directly. When doing this, it is important to disclose the fact that it is a paid review. It is also important that you maintain your integrity and never give a positive review unless you’re really feel need to so.

Another way I’ve come to be in the know of is sponsored post. There are quite a number of sites that offer this kinda service. I have personally tried PostJoint and trust me it make sense and it helped me make some deserved dollar bills.
What you have to do here is simple, offer to help publish advertisers’ posts on your blog and viola…….dollar flowing in your paypal account.

#8. Sell your blogs

Finally, I would like to talk about the possibility of selling your blog. If your circumstances change and you need more time or more money (or both), you could make good money by selling your blog.

There are many factors that are considered when a potential buyer prices your blog. My friend’s friend – Gilbert Samuel has over $200,000 in sales on Flippa and around $150,000 of those sales came from blogs. In my experience, the biggest influence on the final selling price is income.

If your blog is making money, you will have buyers fighting against each other in order to win the auction for your blog. Conversely, if your blog does not make much money, there is a good chance that you will be the one spending all your time asking people to bid. It is therefore always better to sell your blog once it has become profitable.

Lesson Summary

In this lesson I took you by the hand in to my world ands ways to monetize your blog with my 8 amazing ways of actually monetizing your amazing blog; these were:

  1. Affiliate Marketing
  2. Inserting Google AdSense
  3. Email Marketing
  4. Sell Your Own Products
  5. Writing ‘Product Name’ Reviews
  6. Becoming a Reviewme.com Writer
  7. Paid & Sponsored Posts
  8. Selling your blogs!

Conclusion

I hope you have enjoyed this article on monetizing your blog. Did you? I tried to touch upon the main ways that bloggers monetize their blogs, however there are many other methods. When it comes to making money from your blog; your only limitation however is your imagination…remember, “Imagination is greater than knowledge” – Albert Einstein
