Three easy tips on how to earn money writing a Horse Blog

You may have heard or read that one can earn money by writing a blog. You have decided to write a horse blog because you love horses and horse riding, but you are not quite sure how to go about it, nor do you know exactly what a horse blog is.

What is a horse blog?

A horse blog, or any blog for that matter is a type of journal, a bit like and old-fashioned diary or scrapbook. You use it as an internet-based record of your life, your thoughts, your experiences and your knowledge. Some people use it as a marketing tool, to sell their products or services. Blog is short for weblog; it's a bit like a training log where you note your and your horses training goals and achievements.

Free and easy

It is extremely easy to start a horse blog and is absolutely FREE. All you need to do is to go to a site like Blogger for internet-novices, or Wordpress for internet-intermediates. You can set your blog up in 5 minutes flat by following the simple clear instructions on the website.

And then what? How do you earn money from your website once you have set it up?

Use good, old-fashioned word of mouth to get people to read your blog. Choose a subject for your blog that you are familiar with and feel passionate about. Write about it regularly, at least once or twice a week. Then tell every one you know about it. E-mail all your friends about your new horse blog. Tell your riding buddies, your vet, your farrier, your grand-mother. Spread the word. And then monetize this traffic with the following methods:

1.By adding Google Adsense to your blog. This is not too awfully complicated either. Type the word adsense into your browser window, open an account, wait until it has been validated and then add the code to your websites. There are some excellent e-books available on the net about how to get the most from adsense.

2.By writing reviews about books you have read or equipment you have tried and encouraging your readers to get a copy or piece of equipment of their own. This is called affiliate marketing. It basically means that you agree with the merchant of the e-book you read or product you found useful that you would earn a commission on each sale they make from a client you referred to them. It may sound complicated, but due to the modern technology available on the internet it is in fact tremendously simple. Tons of e-books have been written on affiliate marketing, some more useful than others.

3.Promote your own equestrian e-book or short report on your blog. Add a mouth-watering description of your product, listing all the benefits that buying your e-book will bring riders who buy it. You can even sell your e-book from your blog.

Social Benefits

Not only can you earn money with your horse blog, but it is also extremely rewarding. As time goes by, you will meet lots of fascinating horse people, and learn an enormous amount, all from the comfort of your living room. (or where-ever you keep your computer)

Writing a horse blog is not difficult; it can be a lot of fun and help you earn some pocket money to spend on your horse.
