ABC News Talks Starting a Blog & Monetizing It

Author:

You may have heard of Internet Marketing Expert and President/CEO of MoneyReign, Inc. Zac Johnson. He recently appeared on ABC News Now and ABC Video to talk blogging. He has been very successful in making a living online from home, so he had some good points to share from personal experience.

The interview with Tory Johnson focused mainly on professional blogging – how to get started, what niche to choose and monetizing.

Mr. Johnson shared, “It doesn’t matter if you don’t know anything about making money online or even how to make a web site. A blog can be thrown together within a few minutes and can easily be self taught with all of the resources available online.”

He also made another statement, which is extremely important for bloggers who are just getting started to realize. Basically, don’t quit your day job yet.

“You won’t make money right away by throwing a simple blog up on the web,” says Johnson, “but it will potentially get you started and on the path for a secondary income source. Taking your blog to the next level is where you will have to put in the major dedication and efforts.”

Here’s the interview from ABC News.

Blog Monetization Beyond Banner Ads

Speakers: Zac Johnson, John Chow, Syed Balkhi
Session: Monetizing Your Blog Beyond the Banner Ads
Date: Wednesday, May 25
Time: 3:45PM
Location: Jacob Javits Center 1A17

You did it! You finally made the decision to start your own blog and have finally made it to the point where you feel like you are an authority site, have a ton of great content to share with your readers and your RSS count and newsletter numbers are growing daily. However your revenue numbers have flat lined and you feel like you are blogging just for the sake of blogging. Why is everyone else making money with blogging and you aren’t?

Let’s cover three quick monetization methods you can use to take your established web site from hobby to potential full time job!

Create Your Own Product

You’ve already built a successfully blog ton of original content, why not expand on the same concept but with premium content or a learning course. Creating the perfect product for your web site will vary depending on what niche you are in, but it will also provide you with a completely new source of revenue that will be from something you created and own.

Build a Membership Web Site

If you’ve already created your own ebook or product, then a premium membership might be a great idea for your site. Memberships can be anything from a private forum, to having a members area filled with your best premium content that you don’t offer publicly on your blog. A membership can provide your blog with a nice monthly recurring income.

Sell Advertising & Review Products

If the idea of building your own products or membership programs seems too complex or overwhelming, you always have to option to sell advertising spots on your web site and review products that are related to your blog topic. Selling advertising on your web site is easier than you may think; you can sell directly or outsource to a third party. When promoting or review products or services in your niche, you can do this through affiliate marketing, which will allow you to earn a commission on every referred sale or lead from your web site.

These are just three simple ideas that could drastically expand the growth and revenue of your blog, while still offering a great deal of quality to your blog readers and not tarnishing their web site experience. If you are unsure which path is right for you, are scared of the idea of making money with your blog, feel free to ask you blog audience what they would like to see from the blog and if they would partake in “premium” services.

Sneak Peak of “Make Money Online with a Blog Panel”

Author:

I recently had the opportunity to speak with with Jim Kukral who is hosting the “Make Money Online with a Blog” panel.  I wanted to give you a sneak peak of what to expect from the panel and asked him the questions featured below.

The panel is going to feature:

  • John Chow
  • Brian Clark
  • Zac Johnson
  • Darren Rowse
  • Jeremy Schoemaker
  • Jim Kukral

why did jim organize the panel?

It’s not often you can get this many top bloggers in the same state, yet alone room at a conference. Putting this panel together of bloggers of this caliber only makes sense for the one true blogging show which is the BlogworldExpo. The bottom line is, that these top bloggers have years of experience in monetizing blogs and can share their insights on how they’ve made money over the years. That’s what everyone wants to know… the inside tips and tricks on how to make money with their blog, and that’s what this panel will deliver.

what should the audience expect?

They should expect the panel to be pushed into giving away secrets. They should expect the panel to review blogs live on the stage and give real-time feedback on those blogs and how they, the panelists themselves, would monetize them. They should expect to ask specific questions to the panelists and get specific answers about making money with their blog.

why is each panelist qualified to be up there?

Well, if you read through their bios (link to bios), you can see why each is qualified. Suffice it to say for this article, that this panel is pulling together the elite group of high-traffic and money producing blogs online. Sure, there are others out there that are well-known as well, but these bloggers focus their blogs on helping bloggers learn how to make money, so it’s appropriate for them to speak on this subject above others who may have more traffic or income.

We are very excited to have Jim hosting the panel and we hope to see you there!

Zac Johnson at Affiliate Summit

Author:

This is really a test and my first attempt at embedding video on the blog. I did a quick interview with Zac at Affiliate Summit on my new Flip Camera. I did cut the video a little short. About an hour after this interview during his keynote Jason Calacanis showed a slide of Zac’s famous $300,000 check; along with a photo of Shoemoney and his $100k check. Jason stated this was chump change and that both could make far more money if they applied their genius to developing the next block buster dot-com.

If everything goes as planned, here is the interview:
