Michael Dunlop is an entrepreneur who started blogging in 2006 and Retrieat21 was his first blog. After Retireat21 he started Income Diary which was a great success for him.

He managed to make $5000 with Income Diary in the first month. Not all the bloggers can make such a money in the first month.
Michael Dunlop was able to make $5000 with his brand new blog because of his dedication to it. He followed the following steps:

1. Idea

Before starting to write on income diary he thought about the topic on which he can write. He then got an idea to write on what people wanted him to write on. People wanted to know how he managed to be successful in blogging and how can they earn money by blogging. Thus, he provided the people what they needed.

2. Take Action

Taking ActionUsually it is not due to the lack of creative ideas that people don't succeed rather it is the lack of ability to take actions on their ideas.

 An idea is nothing if you are not willing to act on it. So, Michael bought a domain name, created a theme for his new blog.

He did alot of work on the design of his new blog because he wanted it to be professional as well as attractive.

3. Build Momentum

After making the design of his new website he started to collect potential subscribers. He started following people on Twitter so, that they also follow him back. He added a plenty of people to his account to make sure that when he publishes his blog it gets a lot of traffic.

These people were not some random ones rather they were bloggers who were blogging in the same domain as him.

Get Followers

4. Content

The next step is to create content for the viewers and to implement the idea. So, Michael started his blog by doing interviews of people and posting top list articles.

1) Interview

What Michael advice to you is to interview the people who are at the same level as you. You should not try to interview people who are too successful in your domain as they will not be interested in it and they will not like to tweet about that interview.

When you are interviewing someone who is as successful as you are it is more likely that he will appreciate it and when he will tweet about it you will get more followers.

2)  Top List

Publishing top lists is another method of getting a plenty of audience because people are more likely to share top lists than any other kind of articles. You can get the top lists by asking Michael used to publish his top lists.

5. Getting Subscribers

People usually are not much serious in the start and they are not willing to give everything to blogging just for the safe side.

But Michael was not one of these people and he got a Aweber account from day one and gave his subscribers an auto-responder. People usually just tweet about their blog and ask the people to check it out but Michael did something different. He started a free eCourse and whenever someone signed up for it he sent them an email every day using that email marketing tool.

6. Comparison Page

The next thing that Michael did was to create a comparison page because people were not willing to accept whatever he says. People want evidence of every word you speak. Thus, he compared the hosting options in his comparison page so, that the people can decide the best option for them themselves.

7. Create a Profitable Blog

Then he created a page as an alternative for the eCourse. At this page the people could get links of the hosting websites. He also provided coupon codes to his readers.

The best thing about a separate page is that people can share it with their friends on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks. The more the people share it the more our blog is exposed to the world.

8. No Leakage Rule

The most important rule in blogging is "NO Leakage Rule". Many bloggers have links to top commenters at their side bars and they also give links to other blogs in their articles but this causes traffic leakage. The reader will get distracted and will land on your competitors blog. So make sure you avoid any unnecessary distractions.

Avoid Leakage
