When starting a blog there are a few things you need to keep in mind. The main reason for a blog is not to just crank out content 24/7 but to make money. Here are the 4 steps that you need.
- Build it with a great theme make sure you don’t use the free themes, they tend to be very limited on design options. Here is my favorite for themes https://www.elegantthemes.com/ One you have your site built make sure you add your legal pages and your EU legal if you plan on having people from the EU read your blog. Just use this blog as a model for plugins and having the right components in place. Need help feel free to send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Now you want to make sure you have an autoresponder set up. The reason is you will be building your email list. With an email list, you can have access to send updates, offers etc to your list anytime. Most bloggers and website owners fail at this basic principle.

3) Landing page is the key. See you build a blog to build your brand. Sure its a central point and people will click on banners and you will get paid right? Yes but it takes a lot of time and many give up just before it makes money. So what do you do in the meantime? Drive traffic to your landing page. Here is mine so you can get an idea https://easyprofitdays.com/instant. This way your building your list and sending people to an offer right now. Paid ads can get expensive but I still like solo ads. I also love video ads. Video is so much fun and it works really well. Organic ranking happens fast with video if its done right but paid youtube ads they absolutely rock.

4) So while you are building your list and making money here are a few things you should be doing on your blog to get it to grow organically.
