Be it for your passion for writing or to help generate an extra income, blogging is your one stop solution.

This is a no bullsh** guide for the serious ones.

It doesn’t involve you to code or to worry about technicals.

It is an out of the box, ready to go live package.

There are tonnes of ways you can make money with your blog.

but we are going to cover top 2 with which people are making $2000-$12,0000 (Rs.1,70,000 – Rs.8,40,000) EVERY MONTH!

Let’s get started.

Pick a topic

A focused approach is always a fruitful approach.

Be it in education or career, people pick a field and they learn and specialise in it.

You would agree that if you can specialize in something, your expertise pays off.

Its the same with a blog. Key is to specialise in a Niche.

This is where you need to pick a topic you know enough to write about and you are passionate about.

It can be anything. Food, pets, music, gym, tech, tv shows, I can keep going.

If you can imagine it, there is a demand for it.

And where there is a demand, there lies money.

For example, one of our student was interested in ‘Mehndi designs’ (Indian tradition Henna Tattoo) blog.

You would be surprised to know that every month, 34 lac people in India searches for it: 

Another similar search is ‘designer mehndi’, every month, 75 lac people in India searches for it:

Alright, but what does it have to do with your blog? Here’s what.

If you would have an interest in something like Mehndi and you would have a blog writing about it,

You would be getting 47 lac people every month on your blog!

This website is getting it:

Not only are they getting these many people, but with that kind of traffic, they are earning a lot!

You would know, Google pays about $1 for every 1000 views.

For 47 lac, they are earning atleast $4700 every month! That is almost Rs.3,38,000.

So, pick a topic, something you are passionate about, we’ll cover how you can promote your blog shortly.

Once you have a lists of niches, use SEMRush to find out how many people are searching for that every month.

That’s what we have used for ‘Mehndi Designs’ as well. Get a free 7 day trial here

Once you find a niche which has good search volume and you would like to write about it, you can start with the technical side.

Get Space Online

Now that you have decided what your blog will be about, Its time you get yourself a branded website.

This is where 90% of the people quit, that’s because people aren’t ready to take effort and they keep procrastinating.

If you are serious about blogging, read on. We are going to make this process very simple for you.

Think of this as a getting yourself a space on the internet.

You just need 2 things for that. A small monthly rent and a name.

There are many companies offering space online out there with very compelling offers.

We’ll break down to you what’s important:
1. Speed
2. After Sales Support
3. Pricing

After trying 10s of services, we chose GoDaddy hosting. They are the best in all 3 mentioned above for a blog. Let’s get started:

Step 1: Choose a planVisit this page (offer applied)

Now, they have 4 plans, we recommend the 1st plan if you are just starting out. You get your own personal branded blog for just Rs.149/month with our special offer.

That’s cheaper than a Netflix subscription!

Click ‘Add to cart’ to proceed.

Step 2: Website Name = Domain
Usually website names cost Rs.999 a year, but we have arranged it for free so you can get started!

Enter your desired name and see if its available.

Choose a name which is related to your topic and something which is memorable. We recommend picking a short name and a .com extension as its more trustworthy and you’ll get traffic from all over the world.

Click ‘Select and continue’

Step 3: Create an Account
Next, simply sign-up with your Google or Facebook account.

Step 4: Details & Checkout
As you can see, you have got a great deal! 
– Free Website
– 66% off on Hosting
– Free Branded Email

Click ‘Complete Purchase’

Enter your payment details in the next screen and complete your purchase.

and done! You have completed the most technical part of the whole guide.

You have space on the internet now! Kudos!

Configuring your blog

Now that you’ve purchased your hosting, 80% techincal part is done!

Visit, your-new-blog.com/wp-admin (replace with your website name)

Once you click ‘Start Building’, you’ll land on a screen like this one:

You must be wondering, what is this ‘WordPress’? (if you haven’t heard of it before)

For facts, 80% of the internet websites are built on WordPress. Its an amazing software and works best for people who don’t want to code a website.

The screen that we are on now, the ‘Control center’ is widely known as ‘Dashboard’.

This is where you control how your website looks.

Step 1: Theme
The theme is the most vital part of your WordPress blog. There are millions of theme available on the internet. Visit Appearance > Themes on your dashboard.

For a starter blog, the latest ‘Twenty twenty’ theme is great.

However, if you are not a fan of that, you can click ‘Add new theme’

and search for ‘blog’.

You can browse them, preview them and pick the one you like.

Once you are sure, click ‘Install’ and then ‘Activate’ the theme.

Once activated, the colors and settings will be made according to the theme.

You can hover over your website name and click ‘Visit Website’ to see how it looks.

Step 2: Install Plugins

Think of plugins as ‘Settings’ option in your phone.

For example, ‘Plugins’ here means an ‘App’. For any requirement you may have, there is a plugin for that.

Just like you install an app in your phone to make your life easy, you can install a plugin to make your website better.

Hover on Plugins and click ‘Add new’.

We have to install a plugin called ‘Elementor’

This will now make your website into a ‘Drag and Drop’ website.

You can simply add an image, text, gallery or whatever you like to your website by simply dragging and dropping.

Step 3: Write
This is your space now, you can start writing about what inspires you and what you are passionate about.

Click ‘All posts’ and ‘Add New’

It’s really that easy now! That’s all the setup you needed to do.

Now you have to just take care of writing.

Promoting your Blog

Now that your blog is setup, you must be wondering, how will you get visitors on your Blog?

We’ll do a quick touch base as to how you can make your articles reach millions of people by SEO.

SEO is Search Engine Optimisation, it basically means that you are ‘Optimizing’ your content to become ‘Search Engine’ friendly or Google friendly.

With that, your articles will start ranking on Google giving you massive visitors in-turn.

Step 1: Keyword Research
The most crucial part of SEO is your keyword research. If you can find a ‘high search volume’ keyword for your niche, you can garner great traffic.

Let’s say you want to do a food blog and you want to write about ‘Best Indian Snacks’

It gets about 1000 searches a month, but it may not seem much.

However, with a good keyword research, you can find out that the related keywords has a search volume of 369,900+. Thats huge traffic!

That’s something you can find out only after keyword research. We use this tool for Keyword research for our blogs as mentioned earlier.

Step 2: Optimizing your content
Now its time to optimise your content with the keywords you found.

We will use a free plugin for WordPress for this one, its called ‘Yoast SEO’

Go to Plugins > Add ‘New’ and search ‘Yoast SEO’

You’ll get options and guidelines like these ones under your ‘posts’

Simply follow the guidelines they mention and you’ll be able to optimise your content with the latest SEO guidelines.

How it works is that you will be placing the researched keywords at multiple places in your blog articles.

Once you do that, Google will understand what you have written about. 

For example – If you optimise your article with ‘Top Indian snacks’, whenever someone searches for it, your page will show up on Google.

Step 3: Google Search Console
Google gives you a tool to let you know how you rank for something and how it can be optimised.

You simply have to follow the instructions after signing up here.

Once signed up, you’ll be able to see the keywords you rank for, the pages you have on Google and so on.

Step 4: Giving a little push
Once you are done with the technical part of promoting your content, its now time to do it in a fun manner.

To start ranking, your content will need traffic and shares from other people.

Which is why, you have to create your brand’s social media profiles on:
– Facebook
– Instagram
– Pinterest
– Twitter
– LinkedIn

Once done, share the links across all these networks and invite your friends to like and follow your brand pages.

This will get you traffic and pretty soon you’ll start ranking on Google.

Make Money with your Blog

Now that every thing is setup.

Let’s introduce you to the 2 best options to make great money!

Option 1 – Amazon Affiliates
Amazon is India’s #1 ecommerce company and it’s no secret that everyone buys from it.

But did you know that you can make tonnes of money with Amazon by promoting it on your blog.

Yes! If you help Amazon get a sale from your blog, they’ll pay you.

For example, let’s continue with the ‘Mehndi designs’ example.

If the website have an Amazon link to ‘buy Mehndi’, to suppose this page:

If for example, out of the 47 lac monthly visitors, just 1% choose to visit the page and purchase which is 47,000.

Amazon would pay 10% on the sale, assuming those people bought the one for Rs.148, for every sale, your website would get, Rs.14.

Therefore, for 47,000 purchasers,

47,000*14= Rs.6,58,000 every month!

You can do this for a pet blog, a food blog, a fitness blog as Amazon offers all sorts of products you can promote.

Registering on Amazon affiliate is free, you can do it here.

Simply fill in your details and you will be able to create your unique links like this one.

You can do it for any page or product.

Once you have these links, you can add links in your Blog to Amazon.

and you are set!

Option 2 – Google Adsense
Once your website is set and getting a few visitors, you’ll be able to add Google ads to your website.

Sign up for an Adsense account here.

Once done, you can create Ad codes which can now display in your website.

Simply install a new plugin called ‘Ad Inserter – Ad Manager & AdSense Ads’

Once done, you can paste the code you have got from Google Adsense in the Ad sections in the plugin.

This is the last piece of the puzzle.

Once setup, you’ll have additional money flowing in via Google Ads!

This is the end to the No Bulls**t guide to creating a money making blog.

By now, you have enough knowledge to create a solid blog which can make money out of the box!

      You should ideally go for the volume for your country as it’ll primarily rank there first.

    • Team Vewox
      7:39 AM, 30 May 2020

      No, it doesn’t depend upon your location. It entirely depends upon the keyword you are trying to rank for.
