1. Blogging

You put up a blog to talk about your personal life, a hobby or an interest.  You attract people who has similar interest to your site.  You put on advertisement from the merchant whose product relating to the particular topic you have on your site.  

2. Product Review

  1. I have been thinking about doing affiliate marketing I have the websites ideas but I’m not good with writing so where do you think should I get articles from ?

    • Hi Hosni,

      You should write your own article. I was no good at writing at the beginning too, but it got better after a while. When you are writing your own articles, you can get your idea across easier. I have tried to get other people writing articles for me, but I could never found a good writer. They could never give me what I really needed.


  2. I already have two types of blogs. At a time I had booked a domain and launched a website namely seofreelancerwork.com but I was unable to keep this site live due to lack of SEO and others knowledge. So now I am thinking to work by creating blogs related to “Health” , “Information Technology”, “SEO Freelancer Work” etc.
    Are these good or should I change my plan…?
    Your suggestion will be helpful to me.

    • Hi Megha,

      I have looked at your SEO Freelancer Work website. There is no content on it at the moment so it is hard to see how good you are at website development. You should buy your domain name instead of using Blogspot.com. It will show your visitors that you are not an amateur, they will have more confident with you.
      With regards to choosing your niche, you can pick something you really like. A niche which you can post a lot of content. Also, a niche which you will be able to get a lot of customers.
      The main things are keep working on it and keep learning.

    • Yes, any field of work is relevant as long as there are people interested in it. To find out how many people are looking for information related to your work, you can go to Google Trends. Type in the keywords you think people will be using to find information about your field. For example, you can use “childbirth”, “home birth delivery” or “midwife”, etc. Underneath the result, it will give suggestions of some related searches which you could explore.
      You need to know Google Trends only give a relative number, it is not the real number of searches.
      To find out exactly how many people are interested, you can use any free keyword tool online.
