So the concept of a movie blog is quite simple. You just blog about movies. Pretty easy to understand, right? Just post content like articles or videos about your favorite movies, rant and rave or even critique about different movies you’ve seen or showcase trailers of movies you’re anxious to see. The concept of blogging certainly isn’t new and movie blogs certainly are very popular for hobby and entertainment purposes. But did you ever think that you can make a lot of money from a movie blog while there’s so many others out there?
You are probably wondering that it takes so much effort to make money from a movie blog like the other big name websites out there or even the news sites fastnewsisland.com. It is true that there are so many websites on entertainment nowadays and you may be thinking that only they can make the big bucks online. Until now, that is.
There are many ways that an average-Joe can easily start their own movie blog with almost no programming, no technical skills or even experience whatsoever. If you like blogging already, then why not get paid for it? There are many ways to do that on a single blog.
Just like the many other press sites, news sites or even entertainment blogs, you can start a simple movie blog with WordPress and then load it up with Google Adsense. How does that work? Basically you’re allowing Google to load up your blog with ads and the more people click on them, you get paid a little bit of a commission each time that happens. The thing is though, you need to drive tons of traffic to your movie blog in order to see decent amount of revenue as Google Adsense can give you somewhat wussy commissions and pay.
Another popular thing to do with online marketing is to sell something that either you created or sell something that someone else created while earning commissions for each of them. This is otherwise known as affiliate marketing and can also be used in your movie blog provided that whatever product you’re selling relates to your audience. Perhaps give away some movie tickets on the side as well while you build a loyal subscriber list?
It’s actually not that complicated at all. You can use any of the ways above to make money but of course it will take consistent work and riches will not happen over night. The key with making money of course is selling stuff. Other than that, it’s getting lots and lots of traffic to your movie blog and build a big audience.
The main thing you need to really focus on is driving traffic to your movie blog. There are many different ways to do that. The best way is of course promote your content like crazy. However, there are a lot more efficient ways to do this through social traffic and syndication. Just share your blog posts on Facebook or any social media site that you frequently use and have your friends or whichever target audience you have share it around.
There are other online marketing techniques you can use to build a list of subscribers to your movie blog such as Search Engine Optimization which gets you easily found by people searching on Google or Yahoo and other big search engines. You can also do some Youtube videos as well that get a lot of traffic.
