If you are a beginner and still learning how to make money blogging, there are mistakes that you want to avoid. You do not want to learn the hard way.

If you are willing to learn from mistakes, then by making them it will cost you time and money.  Worst case, your mistakes can result in failure.  The best thing you can do is to follow the advice of those who have had success with their blog.

The last thing you want to do is make mistakes because you “didn’t know.” The following are common mistakes that beginners make and tips to avoid them.

1. Not using original content — There is a lot of content out there for you to “borrow” for your blog.  You could post hundreds of pieces of content on your site without writing a thing.  Don’t do it!

You may think that your blog looks great with all this content.  It might even be good stuff.  However, your blog will never make any money. If your content is not unique you will not get noticed by the search engines and will lose out on valuable traffic.

2.  No babbling — There are bound to be times when you struggle with what to write about.  Do not let yourself succumb to the temptation of babbling – just writing filler to take up space. This will turn off your readers and they won’t come back. Make sure your posts are related to your niche and make them of value to your readers. You want them to keep coming back.

3.  Banners are not enough — Many beginners believe that just by putting banners on your site will mean you will make sales. Banners by themselves are not effective. You must point your readers in the right direction.

If you are going to put up a banner for a particular product then talk about that product in your posts. Product reviews are great, especially if you have experience with the product you are reviewing. If the product can benefit your readers or solve a problem for them then they will be more likely to click on your banners and buy. This will show you that you truly can make money with a blog and will inspire you to do more.

These are mistakes commonly made by beginners. They are costly as they will delay or even prevent your blog from ever making you money. This knowledge will allow you to get your blog off to a good start and provide a good income for you over time.
