    The first thing i suggest is that you learn to use the search function, top right of your screen. Most if not all the basic questions have been answered...

  • Using Blogger may not be the best place to start any online business since Blogger could take down your blog at any moment.

    Feel free to view the thread given to you above by the previous poster to get more traffic to your site, but I do recommend investing your money into a professional site on your own with hosting and a domain name. There are several people who have their big blogs just disappear at random because you don't exactly own the site.

    Of course, there are exceptions for newbies just getting started, so if you feel like you can't invest the money, Blogger may be your only good choice at the moment, but you always want to improve and go on to the next step of owning your sites online.

    I would not use blogger. Learn wordpress, and host your own sites. Takes more time, but in the end, it's worth it to have your own sites.

    As first consider this as a business! You need strong foundation first to be able grow in the future. So forget all free hostings, bloger and similar things. Get yourself a hosting and install word press...
    If you want to build your list you will need traffic. So called "free traffic" is too slow. With list building you need momentum so more or less only paid traffic works well.

    This is very good advice (the money is in the list)

    Some of my feedback, if you are serious about making Money, get your own domain and hosting (not blogger), work on building your traffic up before trying to monetize the traffic

      Good advice here (and from many others in this thread).

      Get your own domain from Namecheap, your own hosting through HawkHost and invest in a REAL business of YOUR OWN.

      If you absolutely have no money at all and NEED to use a free blog, I would suggest using Weebly(dot)com, Typepad, Bravenet or LiveJournal before ever choosing Blogger. And even then, get your own domain and hosting as soon as your finances allow you.

      Go to the All-in-one traffic thread to learn about getting traffic. That 1 thread alone should give you at least 2 or 3 hours of reading and study time.

    As other people have said:

    - the first thing to do is to get yourself a domain name and start your blogging there. The reason being that you will be able to control everything.

    - Secondly, get a web hosting service to host your blog or website.

    - Thirdly, get a free ebook on your niche that you can give in exchange for your visitor's email address (Don't even bother about the name because that will reduce your optin rate).

    - Install a squeeze page creation plugin to capture the email addresses.

    - Sign up for autoresponderservice and create campaign with follow up email sequence (about 7 to 14 of them)

    - Integrate your campaign code to your squeeze page.

    I hope this helps.

    I would advise have your own blog on a self hosted platform from day one, places like blogger, tumblr are all controlled by someone else and not you. One bad thing or complaint about your site and they could shut your down, and your hard work in creating content will be gone. Look I understand cost may be an issue, find a way to save the money to invest in 1) a domain name (godaddy do 99 cent domain names for the first year) 2) a hosting service, good cheap ones, hostgator, which you can pay monthly,. Another 3rd thing I would recommend is to invest in autoresponder, to build your list. Again theres lots of companies that have free plans with limited subcribers, ie mail chimp allows upto 1000 subscribers for free I think. I'm using one that has unlimited subscribers and campaigns for $17.95!. So these 3 things are essential to start you off, and the rest of the stuff like list building plugins, optin forms, you can all get for free with wordpress. I love word press for this! To re-iterate, stay away from free blogging platforms. Find a way to get those dollars, to invest in YOUR business, it will pay off in future with your hard work and dedication.

    It's possible, but I strongly advise you not to, for all the reasons explained in this thread.

    "To your blog", you perhaps mean? I would start here, with the thread reserved for discussing that specific question: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ffic-tips.html

    Build a list on your own domain not on a free website. That way it's yours and no one can take it away from you.

    I would suggest moving from blogger to wordpress, getting yourself a domain name and hosting it yourself using a company like bluehost or hostgator. You have more flexiability, it's more stable and professional looking than using blogger. You can place a pop up email capture on your new blog that comes up after a few seconds offering something enticing for your readers to join your subscribers list to build up your list.

    You can place social media and seo plug ins on your blog to begin getting some traffic as you provide content. For more free traffic you can create youtube videos, also try article marketing with link to your blog, providing quality content in forums in your niche also with link to your blog. Paid traffic you can try banner advertising using sites like buynsellads.

    Put a little more effort and make a nice looking wordpress site with your own domain, that way you won't have to worry if your blog is going to be deleted. + Wordpress sites always look way more legit then blogger ones.

        Hi Max, great tips from others above. Now that you are moving to your own site, make sure that you do slow things down.

        I would maybe hold off on the making money thing right now if you can't afford to do paid ads or are not knowledgeable in paid ads right now.

        Here are a few suggestions:

        1- Focus more on learning and then creating more content and value on your new blog. Google seems to like 1500 to 2000 word articles (now). This does not mean that articles with less content won't be indexed and ranked high enough.

        2- Focus more on 'Giving' first before 'Getting' [Making Money]. We all came to this industry to get money right? But we as marketers need to first Give before we can get. You will start getting but later down the road.

        Lastly...

        Congratulations on taking action!

        The only way to learn is by doing. We make mistakes along the way and if we learn from our mistakes, we can graduate to the next level.

        So yes use the search feature above but make sure to actually keep 'applying' what you have learned.

    Definitely learn WordPress. It is extremely powerful and will give you the ability to grow your list. Find a great looking theme that looks professional. Skip the bells and whistles and keep it simple. Write amazing content and you will be well on your way!
