Blog is the easiest business to start with no money. It doesn’t mean it’s easy, but it is the easiest compared to all other alternatives. All you need is: domain + hosting ($50) and time to write about the things you already know.
Search engines will do the work for you IF you do the work for the search engines first.
When you have free website visitors and potential customers coming to your website every day, success is nearly guaranteed.
Bring enough visitors and you’ll definitely sell something. Even if you don’t have any product on your own, you can recommend someone else’s products through referral links and earn money that way.
Once you have the traffic, the sky’s the limit…
Choose The Right Keywords
You don’t need much to run a blog:
- useful content
- aim for 50 blog posts
- some patience (3-6 months)
- keywords you can rank for
Each of these is very important but if you mess up the keywords, you will get no results.
And this is actually where most people make a mistake and then they say SEO is too hard (even though it’s not).
A Better Way
What usually happens is that everyone tries to rank on search results for the same keywords where the competition is insanely hard. Then they fail and wonder why.
Instead they can try to position their pages for keywords with fewer competitors and see better results.
My approach goes one step further than that.
I’m extremely focused on finding keywords that almost no one else can find. Not even the professional keyword tools that cost up to $400 per month.
And then ranking my content becomes very easy. Besides, this is how you found this site, so my approach definitely works.
