Blog to do Business
a) The look
The blogging programs offer various templates and features. The templates propose colours to suit individual layouts and the layouts let you select the templates which best satisfy your needs.
b) The content
To blog for business you need traffic (visitors, readers) to your site. Choose a good company to promote and keep adding posts about new products they offer, and redirect visitors to the company’s Website through your affiliate pay code promotion link. Once that person visits the site, you make money.
c) Consider your audience
Make your blog posts relevant to your readers’ needs. This will get them to click on your affiliate pay code promotion links.
Do this with video or audio clips. If you place some movie video trailers on your blog, write a call-to-action, like, "Click here to check it out at … “ (Add the company’s website with your affiliate pay code promotion link embedded in it).
Make your blog posts short, simple and interesting. There is no sure way to scare off readers than lengthy boring articles.
Comment on other blogs and invite other bloggers to do the same on yours. This will help provide content and links to other blogs which will help your search engine status. It will also help build up your popularity with other bloggers.
g) Update your blog posts often
h) The Ads
You can earn money on the internet advertising on your blogs. But don’t overlade your blog with ads as that will surely drive off visitors. So strike a good balance between ads and content.
The affiliate network companies take care of all the administrative aspects of your pay, tracking, and the companies you work with. You can login at will to check on your current earnings, select the companies you would like to promote, contact any of them, and get the affiliate pay code promotion links to post to your blog(s).
Most affiliate companies are totally free to join. They will assign you a special "AFFILIATE PAY CODE PROMOTION LINK" to promote on your blog. The link will track all of your earnings coming from visitors clicking them on your blog.
k) How do you earn?
You get money online with these companies in three ways: a commission on what your links bring in, the leads of prospective buyers from your blog, and for click on their links on your Website.
Affiliate companies may be willing to pay you 70% commission of a sale from your blog. With digital products you sometimes make more money than the seller just for posting their affiliate pay code promotion links to your blog.
If someone visits a company’s Website you are marketing on your blog, and signs up for a newsletter, or free trial, etc., that is a lead and you get paid for it. This may range from $1.00 up to $10.00 and this, without the person purchasing anything. This is a great money maker since people love free information and free trials.
Google Adsense, BidVertiser and other companies listed promoted by affiliate companies will pay you when someone simply clicks on their contextual ads placed on your blog. This does not need sign ups, purchases, etc. You get .05 cents to $.80 cents per click.
l) When do you get paid by the affiliate administrators?
That depends on each account, and varies from twice a month on the 1st and 15th, to once a month. Payment is effected with mailed check, direct deposit, or PayPal.
