If you have been following John’s recent series on how to live the dot com lifestyle, then you may already know about the importance of making passive income. You need to figure out a way that you can separate your time from your money, so that you are able to generate income without having to put it in any additional income.
One way to do that is to use people like me to do the grunt work for you, giving you the time to focus on other endeavors. If you’re looking to make money from a blog, for instance, you may consider hiring others to do the coding and the writing. Alternatively, you can look into an automated system like BlogProfitz. According to the developers, this is “simply the easiest way to monetize your blogs.”
Turn Your Readers into Revenue
In a nutshell, BlogProfitz is a blog automization tool that will handle the two primary tasks associated with making money from a blog: creating content and monetization said content. This online tool works in tandem with any WordPress-powered blog. It is not a WordPress plug-in. Instead, it is an external application to which you grant access to your blog.
Logging in to your BlogProfitz account, you are presented with this user dashboard.
From the main BlogProfitz control panel, you are granted quick access to the latest news on the tool. Below that are a series of tutorial videos that walk you through the BlogProfitz monetization process. The videos are comprehensive and easy to understand.
It Starts with Free Blog Content
The first half of the equation involves populating your WordPress blog with a series of quality content. You can continue to write your own original content, but the BlogProfitz system can supplement that with automated content as well. To add your WordPress blog, you’ll need to provide your WP login and password. Some may feel that this poses a potential security risk, so proceed at your own discretion.
In setting up each posting rule, you select the appropriate source, target blogs, and frequency. BlogProfitz lets you pull content from RSS feeds, videos from YouTube, and articles from ContentClub.
There are over 15,000 “unique” ContentClub articles and their distribution is said to be heavily restricted, minimizing the search engine penalty for duplicate content. You can choose keywords or keyword phrases to pull articles relevant to your niche. You do the same for YouTube, but you’ll need to provide the specific RSS feeds on your own.
Each posting rule lets you set the maximum number of items you pull from that particular source, as well as the number of items the BlogProfitz posting rule will run per 24 hour period.
Automatic Affiliate Marketing
Now that you have the content side of the equation handled, BlogProfitz helps you out with the “profit” side of the equation by offering integration with a number of different affiliate programs. These include Amazon.com, Click2Sell, Overstock, eBay, and ClickBank.
Just as you had to set up each posting rule individually, you must also do the same for monetization. The process is a lot simpler, because you just enter your affiliate ID for each of the networks. That’s the page for Commission Junction above.
It would have been more convenient if all of these affiliate network IDs were located on the same page. That way, you could enter them all at once and save them all. As it stands, you need to click through to each page independently.
Make Money Online with BlogProfitz?
The blog posting and monetization process offered by BlogProfitz is fully automated after you have established the initial settings, posting rules, and affiliate IDs. If you’re efficient about it, you can get going in under 10 minutes quite easily.
In order for a blog to be successful, it needs to be updated with new content all the time. By pulling videos from YouTube, articles from the ContentClub private collection, and your choice of RSS feeds, you can be sure that you’ll have new content all the time, even if it’s not really yours. In this way, it may still be prudent to supplement the automated content with “real” content of your own (or that provided by freelancers). Naturally, you’ll need to generate some traffic too.
Another possible area of concern is that all of your information is being hosted on the servers of BlogProfitz, including the login information for your WordPress blog and a myriad of details for your affiliate network accounts. In the future, I’d like to see a self-hosted variation of BlogProfitz.
All this said, if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to populate your blog with automatically monetized content, BlogProfitz may be an option to consider. It really is simple enough that even novices can use it. You get a free e-book to boot.
