    Hi,

    You start with research. Research different niches.
    Find out most common problems. See why your market struggles. How you can help them.

    If you know their biggest fears and problems...you know how to write a content for your blog.

    If you know already how your content looks...you know what type of products you can recommend there.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers

  • First of all, you have to understand the number-one rule for blogging: the real money is not to be made straight from the blog. The blog is a tool you use to suck traffic in. The real money is by funneling traffic out from the blog to product sales pages, mailing lists or CPA offers in a subtle and sensible way.

    Good advice above! You want to spend a lot of time on the research phase - figuring out how you want to monetize it and where you can find the products etc...

    There's many ways to make money from blogs and, depending on how you plan to go about that, dictates the structure of your blog.

    If you plan to collect emails for a list, then you will want to gear all your blog posts and the blog design towards leading people to your opt - in

    If you want to make money with ads like adsense and kontera, then you will want to design the layout accordingly.

    Of course, it all starts with good keyword research and if you search this forum you can find a huge variety of posts with tips on that!

      To get benefits from a blog you need to first search for a niche after that keep on posting unique content to get quick index advantages and you will have banner advertising deals on your side.

        I actually don't consider any of them to be good because they can delete your blog without notice and all your hard work will go down the drain.

        Much better IMHO to spend the $18 on a domain and hosting. BUT, if you have to use a free one, I think they are all pretty much the same so just pick one you like.

    You can do a niche blog that gives useful information and genuine product reviews that people can appreciate. You need to come across as an authority in the niche for best results. So, do research into the market and figure out what people really want.

    First research for good niche which have less competition and very potential for Internet marketing. You also should choose such a niche with which you enjoy to work.

    Then make a site which outlook is professional. And making a blog you need a hosting.

    For free hosting you have so many place over the Internet. Among them I like blogger.com. It is very user friendly.

    I also like wordpress.com. They are very professional.
