I’m not gonna lie to you, growing a blog with no money takes a loooot of time and energy and I strongly recommend to not even try to do it…
…however, I know you might be on a tight budget, so I’ll let you know how I built Wealth Magnate with about a thousand bucks for marketing and made it an awesome looking blog that brings me more money in a month than most marketers make in a year.
Not that I want to brag, ok may be I want a bit :), but growing a blog with close to no money is something not a lot of people could do.
Since I did it, I will give you my moves for free and hopefully you will get to realize what to do to make your blog as profitable.
let’s get right to the meat:
The first thing I did after I bought the wealthmagnate.com domain was spend about a week designing the blog. I know you know but let me just point it out one more time – design is extremely important for conversions
Although there aren’t many free themes worth using, I can assure you the Evolve theme is pretty cool, simple and fast.
It is the one I used at first before switching to Genesis, which is the best on the market… it is 60 bucks and is everything you need to build a powerful blog.
They are all free and vital for your blog. It is not a good idea to complicate things by installing too many plugins, get only those that will help your blog load faster and look cooler… you will see what they are at the above links.
The interesting part comes after setting up your blog, since it is quite challenging to get visitors to it all for free.
I will not tell you getting traffic with no money is easy, because if I did, it would be a lie. Free traffic is a bitch, you will have to work your butt off to get it.
Syndicating/sharing your content is the first thing to do when trying to get free traffic. To make it work you have to create some extraordinary content to share all over the social sites.
Then you have to turn your articles into Podcasts, PDFs, videos and everything you think of and syndicate it some more. At first you will not get too great results, yet if you are consistent, with time people will start noticing you… only if you have what to say though.
You can also pay someone to write similar versions of your articles to post them to the article directories and link back to the original on your blog. Or if you have no money for that, just hand spin them and post them to Ezine articles, Article Base and a few other top directories.
In other words, share your content as much as you can. Spread it all over the Internet.
Blogging daily will give you many pages for marketing as well as make you an authority in your niche.
Despite what everybody says, quantity matters.
I know you might have no time to do it daily, which is why I prepared an article about curation for you.
Curation will save you a lot of time and also make your blog the place to go for hot news.
Follow the link up there and get to know what it is and how to do it the best way. Just so you have an example, take a look at topimnews.wealthmagnate.com
To get to know other cool methods to get visitors to your blog, use the form to your right and I’ll show you how to get as much traffic as you need… and more importantly – how to convert it.
When I first started getting some visitors, I was converting almost all of them into customers, because I optimized the blog for selling before all.
You can make cash even if you don’t have that many visitors… you just have to know how to convert most of them.

I’ve already talked about that a lot, read these articles:
