Do you like blogging? I do. Blogging is one of the best ways to market your business, and to build a following of people who want to learn more from you. Many people do nothing but blog. They don't do any outside marketing for their blog whatsoever. All of their traffic comes from search engines, and from people who link to them.
If you're new to blogging, I suggest that you begin with a blogging platform like Blogger. Blogger is very newbie friendly, and allows you to set everything up without much technical know-how. It's pretty much a "drag and drop" operation. You can set your blog up within 5 minutes, throw some Google AdSense and ClickBank products on there, and then just start generating traffic to your blog.
You can use paid traffic, or even free traffic. If you're operating in a niche where the Google AdSense commission is high, and people click on it often, maybe you should consider using paid traffic. Also, if you get a lot of sales from the ClickBank product you're promoting, it may be a good idea also to invest in some paid advertising.
But if you're just getting so-so commissions from your AdSense income and your ClickBank product, then free marketing should be the technique that you use. There's nothing wrong with free marketing. You will just have to do a lot of it to see the income that you are looking for.
Strive to do as much free marketing as possible. You have blogging, article marketing, social marketing, video marketing, SEO, viral marketing, joint ventures, and even starting your own affiliate program. All of these things are things that you can do in your business starting right away.
Now along with Blogger, there's another blogging platform that a lot of people like to use in their business. This blogging platform is known as WordPress. WordPress is very popular, but in my opinion, very difficult to understand. You have to know about themes, plug-ins, pinging services, folder codes, and more things like that. It's not as simple as people make it seem to be.
Nevertheless, people are earning nice money with their WordPress blog, and they say it's the best blogging platform to use. I personally don't know how to use WordPress (and don't care about learning about it), but maybe you could find a nice tutorial about it somewhere online that will help you out.
Blogging is awesome, and once you finally understand what to do, you will find that it's easy as pie to start a blog and start earning money from it. There are a lot of books on blogging, and most of them offer sound advice. I encourage you to learn more about it so that you can start profiting from it starting right away.
Blogger and WordPress are the 2 most popular, and you should try out both to see which one you're most comfortable with. They both can get you good search engine traffic, so you can't go wrong with the SEO aspect of things. But try it out for yourself and see which one you like best. Do it now.
