    Hey guys, I was wondering if you can answer me a few quick questions that I'm a little 'iffy' about

    Making Money Through Blogs:
    Basic formula is
    Pick a Niche -> Get a Blog -> Write 5 articles a day -> Put adsense on your site -> Watch money roll (organic traffic)

    Is that how it goes?

    Then when you write those 5 articles (Well, rewire) you post them on [email protected] with a backlink to your blog

    + On the blog you can have an affiliate if its worth it?

    Just a few things, don't rush on picking your Niche, that is by far the most important step, if you stuff that up, your earnings won't be great, and you may be discouraged.

    Preferably don't get a free blog, and the articles written can be easily outsourced.

    5 articles will suffice, and don't expect the money to roll in, you may stuff up on your first few blogs, don't be discouraged.

    On your articles place more than one backlink to your site, 3 is ok.

    Don't only stick with EzineArticles, submit to other article directories too :D

    To many new bloggers expect to be earning $5/day with their, first blog, within their first week. You would be considered good if you made $5/day on you first blog full stop.

    Note: $5/day is $150/month, everyone out there is going to say that is doable, but it isn't that easy with your first blog. So many things can go wrong. Articles aren't written well enough, wrong Niche (99% of the time), Bad backlink placement, ie, putting the links in the wrong place, not monetizing your blog. If you are lucky and you chose a relatively good Niche, as you learn you can tweak/monetize your blog more and more and eventually get to $5/day. If you pick a Niche with low competition and high search volume, but forgot to see how much you make on average /click, you may only get 2-3c/click, and with 1000 uniques daily organically, even if you have 10% CTR, you would only be getting $3/day max. Nothing much you can do to increase search volume, last I checked. ;)

    BTW not saying $3/day for a blog is bad.

    Also, lets say I'm making a graphic for a client
    A banner, a website, or a logo...

    And I use images... Do I have to OWN the images, or is there some site that offers free images to grab and to use them as you like?

    Dont forget you can also put in some CPA affiliate offers at your blog, and if possible try to take some time to rewrite the articles before you post at your blog.

    Depends if your name is anywhere on the site, but if someone comes after your client then they can always point their finger at you.

    Flickr has a creative commons usage section, and there are many free & paid stock sites. I use:
    Code:
    http://www.sxc.hu
    http://www.istockphoto.com
    http://www.gettyimages.com/creative
    Search google, there are tons of photos you can use without getting in trouble, but you'll probably have to pay a few bucks to legally use the best ones.

    Wow, bl4ck1ce
    You keep impressing me man :p Thank you so much


    What if I go on g()()gle.com, go to "Images" section, are all those images for free and can be used for any purposes or not? (But any purposes I mean... taking the girl and putting her on a flyer, posters for nightclubs, banners for websites, etc)

    I would be real careful about using images that aren't your own....look what happened to this guy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5bUmFuFog4

    Someone had a hard on for this guy.

    *sighs*

    Hm, hm, hm....



    I heard that if you take an image (everyone except people) and change something about it, it becomes your own?


    I'm just wondering

    .. DO THEY ACTUALLY USE THERE OWN IMAGES...

    Legal Agreement:
    All the rights of the final product (website, Logo, Banner designs etc.) has created and designed for its clients belong to the client it was designed for. Our product/s does not hold any rights of the client (provided that final payment has been received from the client)
    ---------

    Does that mean that they arn't responsible for the logo after the logo is done and sent to the client?

    Of course it does. How could they be responsible after it's left their possession?
