If you enjoy creating blog posts, advertisers may be looking for you. Now you can turn your hobby into a source of income, implementing these 12 workable and easy steps. You, too, can join the ranks of skilled bloggers who blog and get paid for it. It’s easy when you know what to do and how to go about it.
Step 1: Copy and paste any links or tracking tokens you need to include in your blog post. Hit “Enter” and push these down on your page. You’ll return to them later.
Step 2: Read through the opportunity description and summarize the main points. This is your rough draft.
Step 3: Keep sentences and paragraphs short and to the point. Now insert (copy/paste) the links mid-sentence in your post. For paid posts, advertisers usually prefer relevant links to be midway in sentences.
You now have your rough draft.
Step 4: Once you’ve written your blog post, do a quick word count to make sure you are on or over the required number of words specified in the opportunity description.
Step 5: Now–and this may sound strange–hit “Publish.”
Step 6: Pull up your newly created blog page and check to see that your links are highlighted. Click on them. Make sure they are working correctly and that they point to the advertiser’s page. This step is crucial to your receiving payment for blog posts.
Step 7: While you are there, read through the advertiser’s page and add any additional points to flesh out your blog post. You’ve accomplished two things: you’ve checked that the links are working and you’ve read through the relevant info. This approach may seem backwards but it is easier than having to hunt for the advertiser’s page in the beginning, then having to return to the opportunity page and grabbing the link later.
You’ve now polished your post and have made sure that it meets technical requirements.
Step 8: Hit the spell checker at the top of your newly-created blog page. If you are still unsure about any words check them with an online dictionary (which you should have sitting in your browser’s top bar for convenience).
Step 9: Check formatting (spaces between words and paragraphs) and make sure there’s a period at the end of each paragraph.
Adding the Title and Labels
Step 10: Think of your post in a nutshell and this will give you a suitable title. This reverse approach is effective because you save time by not having to change your title, as your post changes and develops. Make sure you use keywords in your title, subheads, and blog post body.
Step 11: Include “Labels For This Post,” using applicable keywords.
Step 12: Publish again and hit “View Blog.” Read through your entire post now that it is in published format. check that it is free of errors. Scroll down to the bottom and right-click on the time stamp. Hit “Properties” or “Send Link” and copy/paste your page URL for submittal.
By developing a systematic approach to blogging, you’ll author quality posts. By following these 12 steps, you’ll streamline the whole process, creating blog posts that will result in earnings when you blog for pay.
