    Hi BlackHatWorld people!

    I am a member for a while here, reading everything, trying to learn and so on, but my problem is, i have no investment, i mean i have no money to invest in anything and my aim is to make money which i could invest to make more money!

    Ok so here is what i was thinking for 5minutes now hehe :D, i have a few twitter accounts which are related to music and in total it has about 15k followers, the biggest one is about 6k followers, so i can see people are making autoblogs and so on, but i guess i will need to buy something to make an autoblog, right? I mean a somekind of plugin.

    I have an adsense account so i am thinking if i would make a blog related to music, something i dunno, i need to think about this more and i would connect it with twitter for traffic, how do you think, would it work to make a few bucks?

    People, be so kind, help me with theese few questions, express your opinion about this, don't flame.

    Thank you!
    Andrey

    EDIT: I guess i posted it in a wrong section :S, my apologise, maybe a mod could move it to the right one? Thanks!

    If you're looking to combine autoblogging with twitter, check out shezboy's threads:

    I'm not sure if a blog about music would be profitable. It depends on what niche within the music realm (making music or just listening to it, and what genres) you're talking about, and also the demographics of your twitter followers. (How old are they? Do they think that they're entitled to get their music for free, or are they willing to pay for it?)

    If you think "laterally" you can come up with ways to monetize people who like music without actually selling them any music. For example, you could create a blog about iPod accessories. That's related to music, but it's product-focused, so it stands a chance of making more money than an informational blog about one's favorite kind of music (just an example, I'm not saying that that's what you were planning on doing).

    Thanks mate i will read those 2 threads, amm.. you think ipod accessories blog would work? I could drive traffic from facebook also, would create a fan page, 1 more twitter account related to ipods as well. I think i will give it a shot my friend, what about domains and hosting, i schould buy them, right or maybe i could use blogspot.com or something similar to this? I heard that iPods & Iphones are really popular on twitter so i think there would be interested people to come to my blog.

    Thanks for information mate, waiting for other suggestions, opinions, anything usefull.

    Regards,
    Andrey

    I have a music blog. Its really a sidekick to may main money site which is music as well. Give them FREE MUSIC! they will love that AND in turn place ads for music products, like software, instruments, etc. It can be done if the niche is not to crowded.

    I don't see why not. Tons of people have iPods (and Zunes, etc.). You could also promote ear buds, portable headphones, amplifiers, etc. to people who have any kind of portable media player.

    As for hosting and domains, it's best to own your own domain. You can get dirt cheap hosting from IndiaNets. Try to find a coupon code for Namecheap for registering a domain. They give out a new code every month. I would stay away from GoDaddy at all costs.
