There are literally thousands of blogs, full-fledged websites, books, articles and courses about making money online with a website. Millions of words have been written explaining how to turn a profit with a blog or site.

If your kids are babies, you need to hear advice from other mothers who are parenting the wee ones. How do you get an infant to sleep through the night? When should you stop breastfeeding your tot? What do you do about a two-year old who bites everyone or an eighteen-month old who eats the dog’s food? If you ask your own mother about these issues, she may have very different ideas than you have. You know in your gut when someone’s advice aligns with what you think is right in the world of parenting. By reading get inspired for moms, you’ll find a slew of advice from mothers who have gone through the same thing and not only survived, but thrived.

Be proactive! The most important thing you can is to be proactively engaging your online presence. This has traditionally been done with TV and radio ads which do work. But the nice thing is you can cast a wider net for cheaper online. This can easily be done for free with things like video marketing, SEO, or paid search ads. I’m not saying to flush the traditional methods since we took full advantage of TV and it worked. But these days you gotta be thinking outside the box to make it work. And most importantly, engage and reward your online community who talk about you favorably. Creating a raving fan base is a lot simpler than one typically thinks. Things like video testimonials, online reviews, and social media sharing will make your business shine like no other before.

I’ve used Comment Kahuna and Market Samurai to find dofollow comment online blogs. Comment Kahuna didn’t work at all (it’s free, so I have no beef with it). Market Samurai is an outstanding keyword and competition software application, but it’s not that great in providing dofollow blog commenting opportunities. I have Market Samurai and don’t bother using their dofollow blog search.

Paid consultations – Just like being a speaker in a seminar, having paid consultations is an indirect way to do blogging for profits. Through your blogs, you establish your expertise and credibility on a subject matter. This way, some people will look forward to consulting with you about their concerns.

By writing regularly (my goal is 4 entries or “posts” per week), seldom does a week go by that I don’t add someone to my network or use what I am writing to make a new connection with an existing or potential Client.

Buying backlinks, unless it is a service that hand submits those comments and as I described, is a big waste of your hard-earned money. Whether you pay someone to use it or you use it yourself, automated blogging software is another waste of time and money. Also, leaving the wrong type of comments on the wrong type of blogs will do you more harm than good.
