Building blogs quickly is an essential skill to have if you are creating a virtual internet empire. The quicker you build a money making blog the quicker you can start earning money from that blog from adsense, affiliate products, or flipping the blog. Im going to share with you some resources you can use to build your blogs quickly.
DomainTools.com is an essential tool to have in your niche blog building arsenal. DomainTools has too many tools to name in this article, but one essential tool is the Domain Search tool. The domain search tool will check to see if a domain name that you would like to use is available on any of the popular top level domains. DomainTools.com shares valuable information that you can use to your advantage. It will let you know if the domain name has been previously registered, allow you to look up the current owners information if it is public, and it will even make suggestions for other domain names you can consider using if the name you want is not available.
The next resource that you need is a reliable domain name registrar. GoDaddy.com is one of the best registrars around. Not to mention they have great advertising. GoDaddy.com is not the best web host. Ill tell you whose the best in the next resource tip.
If you want reliable, up-to-date, and flexible hosting then HostGator.com is the domain host for you. Ive used HostGator.com for two years now and Ive never had a major problem of any kind with them. If you do have a problem simply get on the phone anytime day or night and give their customer service a call. Their customer service is excellent. HostGator uses the latest versions of PHP, cPanel, and WordPress. Installation of WordPress takes a few clicks of your mouse button.
Once you have WordPress installed you will need to customize the look and feel for your specific needs. The best way to do this is to use find a custom blog theme. You can hire a designer to create one specifically for you. You can find them at SitePoint.com, Forums.DigitalPoint.com, and the WarriorForum.com. Use Google.com to search for premium themes or free themes.
Once you find a theme that you would like to use you will want to use it for more than one blog or simply change a blogs appearance over time. The easiest way to do this is to change the header.
My favorite FREE resource to do this is XHeader. You can go to XHeader.com and pick up this tool for free. XHeader allows you to create professional looking headers in minutes without having to use expensive graphic design software.
If you consider writing content for your blogs to be a chore rather than fun you will want to outsource the task of writing your blog content. Shelancers.com provides an excellent resource for hiring free lance writers. You can hire writers to create forum posts, blog posts, articles, and even sales page copywriting.
Youre creating these blogs to make money if you are creating a blog strictly for adsense income then you know where to get the information to implement adsense. However, you may want to market affiliate products on some of your blogs. Finding the best affiliate products at ClickBank.com can be a time consuming chore.
The resource youll want to use to speed up your research is CBEngine.com. CBEngine.com will allow you to search for ClickBank products based on a wide variety of search criteria that is much more comprehensive than ClickBank.com offers.
Finally you will need a good keyword research tool. Googles free keyword tool is one that I use quite often. But most of the time I need to do more in-depth research than Googles tool provides. I then turn to Market Samurai. Market Samurai is an awesome niche research tool that gives you an incredible amount of information on a group of keywords. Check it out at MarketSamurai.com
