Detail Steps  to Creating A Blog  in Nigeria,  Authoritative Niche that makes $1000 in 2months

If you are really sure you want to create a blog that makes money, here is an in-depth detail on how to start the blog

  1. Choose What You Want To Blog About and  Set your blog goals

The first step towards creating a blog that makes money is to choose what you want to blog about and  set goals for the blog. Your success as a blogger is much more dependent on your blog goals. Setting goals and objectives when creating a blog gives you a clearer picture of your future blog. It provides you with both long-and short-term motivation. It helps you get focus, and to organize your time and your resources to make the very most of your blog. Your blog goals should be; Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound.

  1. Formulate your blog operational strategy

How will you run the blog so as to make money from it? By formulating and developing blog operational strategies, you can examine and implement effective and efficient method for using limited resources-capital, writers and work process to achieve your goals. One good technique adopted by many pro-bloggers today is blog model technique. A particular blog is studied right from the time of creation to the time the blog starts paying off in spades. That particular blog’s strategy will be adopted by another blogger who tries to avoid mistakes and errors made by the model.

  1. Research for a profitable blog niche

Blog niche ideas abound! A little research can help you find a profitable blog niche.

  • Visiting popular forums like nairaland.com, nigeriabestforum, and asking questions on nigeriaplatform.com  can help you discover what people are seriously searching for.
  • Visit other blogs and check out readers’ questions and responses.
  • Join different social media where users comments.
  • Use your brain! You are not a dumb. List out twenty things you have search on the internet before. Start from there!
  1. Get a domain name and Hosting

Get a domain name that is fairly short, relevant to your blog niche, easy to remember or memorize and easy to say. Online users must be able to easily find your blog and pass it along by word of mouth to others. These days it’s nearly impossible to get fairly short top-level domain name. Online users who search for different types of business will usually search with more specific terms. A domain that specifies what type of business or information they looking for should be your best bait. Once, you have succeeded in getting a good domain name; host it!

5. Install WordPress as your blogging platform.

A self-hosted WordPress blog is still best . Create and setup your own WordPress.org blog on your own host. I strongly believe that free blogs platforms like Blogger and even WordPress.com do not give you the control, ownership and branding options that you need. One thing I know for sure is that people using a free blog host will one day want to migrate it to their own host. The process can be an annoying often times as you may end losing your site contents. It’s much better to get it right from the beginning.

6. Choose a theme and decide on branding your blog logos and colours

Choose a responsive theme for your blog and customize it by adding navigations, unique logo and color. A responsive blog theme displays your blog well on mobile devices and this increases your blog’s Google mobile ranking. There are lots of free and premium responsive themes out theme.  Use whichever one you can lay your hands on. The only difference between them is theme customization support that you can receive from premium theme developers but never get from free responsive theme.

  1. Add SEO plugin like  All in One SEO  to get your blog index by search engines

In other to increase the chance of Google indexing your blog pages and help search engines find all the articles on your blog, you need to add sitemap to your blog. You can do this simply by using Google sitemap plugin. Adding all in one SEO plugin to your blog will also help to improve blog’s search engine friendliness.

  1. Submit your blog to Search Engines for indexing

You can also submit your blog to search engines such as Google, Bing and Ask search engines for fast indexing of your blog

  1. Start blogging – publishing quality content that people will find valuable and useful.

To create a blog that makes money, one most important thing you need is high traffic. Traffic pays!  Build your blog traffic first and you will see the money rolling in. High blog traffic= high $$$. To blog build traffic, you have to be publishing quality content that is helpful to your readers. Write long content – Long content has been working for years  and will still be working. Neil Patel has talked about how well long content works for him and now even Google has launched an in-depth articles section on their search results. Forget about short little post updates you see on must blog and start working on longer content that solves problems and provides so much value that people can’t help but share it with their friends. Apply Search engine optimization (SEO) – SEO is necessary for helping people find your new post! Applying little SEO techniques like deep linking your blog posts when publishing new post will improve your blog post ranking. With Google search console you can discover broken links; so sign up for Google webmaster tool. Promote your blog and your new blog articlesFor some reason bloggers hate the idea of spending money on advertising. Use social media like Facebook page, Google+, twitter, Pinterest to promote your new blog content.  One way to bypass your competitors is to spend a little bit of money promoting your best work to a targeted group of people who are likely to be interested in your stuff.

  1. Monetize your blog

Don’t restrict yourself only to use of Affiliate marketing. Affiliates marketing alone will not earn you up to $500 in a months unless you are pro-affiliate marketer. Multiple stream of income is the ultimate. If you must create a blog that makes money, you have to monetize your blog using 3-4 different variable online income means such as;

  • Creating your own information product like valuable eBook that you can market on your blog.
  • Appealing for big time advertisers.
  • Using Google adsense

With the combination of above means of blog monetization, you are sure of making nothing less than $1000 (200K) in 2 months as a beginner

 The content above can be adopted by anybody who want to create a blog that makes money. Your geographical location doesn’t matter. Whether you are in Australia, Uganda, Ghana, Russian, Europe, Saudi, Italy, Indonesia, Philippine, South Africa, India, UK, USA etc, you can still adopt the steps.
