Have you ever thought of starting a blog to share your experience and expertise? I personally know many people who are thinking of starting a blog but don’t know where to start. For me when I thought of starting a blog to share information related to digital marketing and ways to make money online. I didn’t want to start as a blog because for me blog sounds small. I wanted my work sound as a brand or magazine so that people/company pay me higher even when I am starting out.
Note: I advise you to get a domain name which sounds like a brand not like ” Your name plus blog”. It takes lots of effort and many years to promote your personal work as a brand. But when you start out as a brand it takes less time and effort to win the trust.
Here’s How I started my online magazine, build trust and made over $2000 the first month.
First: I bought a domain name called “Influencingentrepreneur.com” and brought host for the domain.
- Facebook Page ( 30K plus followers): To build trust with the audience
- Pinterest Account( Over 1.5 million monthly viewers ): To get maximum traffic
Here’s how to start a blog
First, click on “Get started now” button.
It will lead you to a page where you can “Select your plan“. Here’s you will get 3 different option:
As I mentioned before it’s easier plus faster to promote your work as a brand than as a blog. Once you have chosen a name, your next step is to buy a domain. If you already have bought a domain name you can simply choose “I have a domain name” if not you can choose “New domain“. In my case, it was “influencingentrepreneur.com ”
After you choose your hosting plan and domain name. It will refer you to the payment. Enter your account information. Use your frequently used email because your login information will be sent to it.
After you choose your account plan and checked domain privacy protection. It’s time to pay for it. Don’t forget to tick on “I have read and agree to Bluehost’s terms”. After that hit submit.
After your purchase is complete, create a new password for your account.
Yeyii, You officially own a blog now.
