Hi Enstine, Excellent compilation of blog posts, that’s a smart way to organise all of your best content at one place too.

Creating a blog that makes money is not a rocket science. But it needs some consistency. If you’re expecting to make money within a few weeks (without having any skills), you’re going to fail miserably.

Knowing when to monetize your blog and how to build audience around your blog is the key to build a profitable blog.

My 2 cents are:

-Focus on getting more traffic from search engines like Google. The more search traffic you can bring to your site the more sales you can make. It’s as simple as that.
-Figure out how your competitors are making money. Competitor analysis is the key to finding great content that actually sells

Great share, keep rocking Enstine.

An excellent blog posts from you Einstein. You have perfectly given the tips for every blogger, which they needed to make their blog profit. After reading your blog I got an idea that to get more traffic and make our blog as profitable is not an easy thing, we need to work a lot, patience and research of the content are the important things we need to concentrate. Your 21 points are useful tips and all the points you have mentioned the common thing that every blogger has to know this. Without knowing this, they can’t achieve their goal. The passion of our most of the blogger is to gain traffic and to make money. But even though they know all these basic they don’t have time to concentrate on this basic things. So in this part only we are affected. But after reading your article, I hereafter won’t leave this essential thing, and I will surely follow all your tips to make my blog best.

Great checklist, Enstine!

As you may already know, I am planning to launch my new blog next month (well, on New Years’. So, it is technically next year :D), so the checklist will definitely help. I have missed a few points – like optimization for speed, need to keep them in mind (I was thinking about deliberately slowing down the site and displaying a message – you know, encourage users to be patient. But, that might backfire).

Anyways, thanks for the tips, Enstine! Good luck with your new blog 😀

Hi Enstine

I don’t make much money on my main blog so I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on making money through blogging.

I haven’t really monetized my list as yet either so #13 will come in handy.

One thing I find annoying that many internet marketers do is to send me emails promoting products far too often. I’m sure they make their money that way but that’s definitely not the way I want to go.
