How to Make Money Blogging From Home
By Skip McGrath and Marsha Perry
Everyone has heard of blogs and almost everyone would like to earn a little
extra money -and wouldn't it be nice to make that extra bit of money from home?
Blogging can be a way to work from home, make some extra money and spend time
focusing on your favorite hobby or interest.
Blogging For Fun --AND Profit!
It is no secret that thousands of people make money blogging…but many more thousands of people blog and don’t make a dime. In many cases it’s just that they don’t want to –they are blogging strictly for fun. And that's all right. Blogging can be a great way to connect with other people who share your interests or to reach out to friends and family. Blogging can give back to you in plenty of ways that have nothing to do with money. In fact, if I didn't get a dime I would still blog. But in these hard times, who wouldn't appreciate some extra money every month?
You have probably seen ads for blogging programs that promise you can make $90,000 a month. I guess there are a handful of bloggers doing that --but I'm going to pass on talking about wild claims. The fact is that you can make good money blogging –and you can have a lot of fun doing it.
How Much Can I Earn Blogging and How Hard Will I Have to Work?
It is pretty easy to earn a few hundred dollars a month, but what is really interesting is that once you start earning, it is even easier to grow those earnings. Blogging is about exponential income. You might find it takes you 2 or 3 months of working an hour or so a day to start earning $500 a month, but it takes a lot less time to double that, and double it again.
Personally I spend about four hours a week blogging between my two blogs. That doesn’t sound like much, and it isn’t, but I am also writing books, newsletters and running our eBay business. But even with that small amount of effort, my blogs still earn over $2000 per month and I have made as much as $7000 a month from my blogs when I was really blogging actively.
Marsha and I wrote How To Make Money Blogging From Home with a specific audience in mind. We wrote the book for people who:
Do you fall into that group? If so, this may be just the thing for you.
How Do Blogs Make Money? How Can I Make Money Blogging?
There are several ways to make money blogging.
Affiliate programs – We show you how to locate the best affiliate programs and how to incorporate them into your blog –and how to get people to click on your links so you can actually earn an affiliate income.
Google AdSense – AdSense is Google’s advertising program for bloggers and website owners. It is free to join and you can make thousands of dollars a month from people clicking on your Google ads if you know how to do it.
ClickBank – ClickBank is a source of thousands of information products that are ready made for you to sell. All you have to do is mention them in your blog and when readers purchase, ClickBank sends you a commission check. ClickBank pays every week, so this is one of the fastest ways to make money blogging
Advertising –There are dozens of companies that will pay to place advertising banners on your blog. This is actually my least favorite way to make money from blogging, but it does work.
The Blog Market – It may surprise you to know that once a blog has steady readers there is a good market to sell your blog. We will show you how to do that.
Do I Have To Be A Good Writer To Make Money From My Blog?
No. However, if you absolutely hate to write this may not be for you.
Many highly-successful blogs don’t have great writers. I have seen some that have spelling mistakes, poor grammar and just plain bad writing, but, the ideas they present are interesting.
If you have good ideas about a topic and can express them in basic conversational English ( or Spanish, French, etc.) then you have all the writing skills you'll need.
And most importantly, we will show you some instant writing tips that will solve your problem.
You may be thinking…"I don’t know what I would write about" or "I don’t write well enough to produce a blog."
We show you how to work around that too. Our book helps you blog by showing you techniques to help non-writers produce blogs and poor writers how to produce well written blogs that will capture interest.
How Will Anyone Find My Blog?

Is This Legitimate? Can People Really Make Money While Blogging?
Blogging is an ethical, legitimate and proven way to make money on the Internet working from home. In fact the best bloggers who make the most money do it because they like to help other people and enrich their lives. Our book is a straight forward program of simple steps to create, and launch your blog. There are no tricks, spamming software or goofy schemes.

P.S. I've Got Another Bonus For You
One thing that every blogger struggles with is content. It's content that attracts traffic to your site. And there are some days you are just too busy or too tired to create content. So here is one more super bonus.
I am so confident in the value of the information in my book, and the incredible value of the bonus items that I'm going to make it absolutely, positively risk-free! We have a No-Questions-Asked, Unconditional, 90-Day, 100% Money Back Guarantee. You can transfer all the risk to me!

New Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulations effective in January 2010 require that if I state any amount of money I have made, or someone using these methods has made, then I have to state the “average” amount of money that everyone who bought this book made. Well, as you can imagine, I would have no way of knowing that!
So to comply with the law, let me say that although myself and other people have made differing amounts of money with these methods: “The ‘average’ person who bought this book made less than one-cent ($0.01).”
