When I started blogging, I opted for FeedBurner to manage my email list and send updates to subscribed users. Over the time, I realized many limitations of Feedburner and understood that a targeted Email list is the key to growth for my blog. Readers who have willingly subscribed to my email newsletter are the most valuable readers of my blog. Use this link (30 days free trial of Aweber) Paying for an email marketing software for my blog was something not in my mind, but after hearing the suggestion from many high income paying bloggers stating “Email list is the key to success,” I finally decided to invest and started building an email list. I shortlisted the best of email marketing software’s and finally selected Aweber based on their delivery rate success and ease of use. The closest competitor was Getresponse.

Writing a guest post is one of the best ways to bring in lots of traffic to your site. I write guest posts on several blogs, and these posts always bring in lots of interested readers to my site. Guest posting is also a great way to get a high-quality backlink which will help in your SEO efforts. So now you’ve decided you want to start guest posting.

Like many, he started with a domain name, web hosting, and every essential thing to build a new WordPress blog. But he was unable to get going or make money. It appears like he didn’t focus much on blog marketing and eventually had to shut down his blog. I’m not disclosing the email here as it was not formatted properly. Anyway, basically it’s yet another “I have started a blog but I’m not making money” kind of email that I see more often. Whenever I get such emails, I get reminded of two things: First, a good percentage of such beginners started a blog only to make money or at least hoping that they WILL make money (hopefully from the first month/year itself). Secondly, there are a gazillion “How To Start A Blog In 5–15 Minutes” kind of tutorials on the blogosphere with many of them being written by the so-called “award-winning” bloggers.
