One way that you can make money online is with blogging, but this technique can be very time-consuming. You need to spend time updating your blog on a regular basis, or you have to hire a freelance writer like me to write for you. That said, there is a way around this and it is known as auto-blogging.
Alice in Wonderland?
Not to be confused with the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, Blog Hatter is software that you install on your computer, automating the blogging process. The idea is that you can make a lot of money with very little effort on your part. Since it works with the Blogger.com and WordPress platforms, it also means that you don’t have much of a financial investment either.
Using this autoblog software, you can import articles, search and import images, search and import video, and use the embedded translation utility to publish posts in languages other than English. There is also a “rewrite” tool that inserts synonyms to make “unique” copy.
Before all the Mac guys in the audience get too invested, however, it should be noted that Blog Hatter is currently only available for Windows. You could use the standard workarounds, but know that there is no official Mac version of Blog Hatter available right now.
Diving into the Blogging Software
The software itself can look a little cluttered (if not daunting) to some users, since there seem to be buttons and tabs in just about every which place. It would have really paid off to hire a UI professional to design a more user-friendly interface.
The top toolbar allows you to configure your different Blogger blogs, adding and deleting them at will. You have the post manager to the left, where you can manage the posts you have on queue, and you have the individual post manager in the center and to the right.
Confused? You can turn to the help page for some direction. Just don’t be surprised to see an immediate upsell on that page.
In short, Blog Hatter lets you manage multiple blogs and articles from a single interface. There is a scheduling utility to help spread out those posts, making sure that you blog is updated on a regular basis.
There are other solutions out there that offer similar functionality, but Blog Hatter provides direct support for Blogger.com. In this way, you can effectively create as many free blogs as you want. One major component that is missing, however, is the monetization side. Blog Hatter helps with content and not with making money, per se.
Thousands of Free PLR Articles
Since it is meant to provide a semi-automated solution for posting to blogs, it makes sense that Blog Hatter comes with some content to get you started. Rather than providing you access to a database, Blog Hatter lets you download 6500 PLR articles immediately.
These are provided as basic text files and they are organized based on topic. You shouldn’t expect the highest of quality when it comes to the writing in these articles, however. Here is a brief snippet from one of the articles on cell phones.
Cell phone has evolved to be one of the most important part of life. Most businesses require their officers to have a cell phone. Even individuals need cell phones in going about their daily lives. This is why acquiring this important gadget require intelligence to avoid inappropriate expense.
The grammar is worse than John’s. That’s because most PLR articles are written in English, translated into another language, and then translated back into English.
It’s All About the Money
So, how can you make money with Blog Hatter? You could use the software itself to populate a bunch of blogs, but it may be more worthwhile to use the affiliate program. It pays you a 100% commission on 50% of the sales.
John Chow dot Com readers are being offered a special price of $47 for the Blog Hatter software. The sales page will show the regular price of $67, but clicking through to complete the purchase will yield the discounted price.
There is a full money-back guarantee, so I guess there’s no harm in giving them a try. However, based on my experience with Blog Hatter, I’d argue that you can probably find a better solution elsewhere.
