 But earning money through blogging or making YouTube is easy or not?

Of course easy. But you need to do blogging properly and your website should be getting lots of traffic. Without traffic, you can’t earn money. For the success of earning money through blogging or YouTube channel, you need to maintain some rules.

P.C – Per Hardestam
  1. Consistency is the success key: – You need to post regularly or upload video regularly. Maybe you are busy with your regular job but you need to maintain the consistency. If daily writing not possible the at least weekly one post. If you are doing a job, do blogging just for time pass. Initially, it can help you to pay only utility bills. But if you maintain consistency then definitely you will get success and earn money also.
  2. Trending topics: – The core subjects of your blog or YouTube videos will be on trending topics. That means your blog topic gets lots of searches daily in Google. If the topic is not much popular then the search volume will be less and your traffic will be less. Long videos make more money, but for educational topics, you need to make the short video which may be 3-4 minutes long but with full information.

  3. Original and interesting: – Don’t do the copy paste job. Try to write something interesting and original content. So that your readers can enjoy your writing and that will make your blog different from others. If you your blog is unique then only your readers will subscribe your blog and they will come back to your site. You must be a creative person and you’re your creativity is important for writing.
  4. Keyword research: – Keyword plays an important role in ranking in Google page. If your blog able to rank within first two pages of Google, then you will get very good numbers of traffic. Google Adwords tool is a very good tool to do keyword research and add campaigns for your article.
  5. Hard work for your creativity: – Nothing is free in this world. You must be working hard for your success. Once you decide to publish blog regularly, then you should finish that on time and you work 100% on that. After publishing your blog, you need to share them on social media.
  6. Self-belief: – You have to trust yourself. Initially, you may not get good traffics but you should not lose hope. Self-belief is the first step of success.

At last, I want to say if you start blogging or making YouTube videos only for money, then after a few months, you may not get interested in writing or making videos. Because after a few months if your site not getting good traffic or unable to get good money then you may be thinking that the blogging or YouTube career may not be suitable for you. This is one of the reasons for the failure of many bloggers.

Many people don’t like to do a 9-6 job. They try to find some jobs which help them to earn some pocket money. If you search on the internet “How to earn money without investment” Then you will see many bloggers says about blogging life. They advise to do blogging as a part-time job and after some time you can quit your job. In India, people have started blogging since 2004 but blogging career becomes popular on2008. Most of the successful bloggers started their blog on or after 2008 in India.  Every day, approximately 2M blogs generate through worldwide. So it is not easy to get popular in a single month or 6 months. It may take time for your success. But if you can enjoy blogging or YouTube as a hobby, then you will get interested in your work.  Maybe you don’t need to think for a good job after completing your degree.

Yes, you can earn money in future by “starting a blog” or a YouTube channel but you have o work hard and enjoy as a hobby, not a money making tool. There are the reasons why you should starting a blog site early? Your comments are welcome.
