The concept of starting a blog is easy. Creating a blog with purpose and eventually making money with your blog is not as easy. However, after reading through this post, you will have a much better idea of how you can quickly start a blog, select a niche topic, have a source of monetization and be on your way.
As you can tell from the title, the concept and monetization of such a blog would be “software monitoring“. If you are curious what software monitoring is, it’s one of the hottest trends in technology today. In short, it’s the ability to track and monitor internet usage from multiple devices. Not only can the software track online usage and keylogging, it can also monitor mobile devices as well.
One of the most notable software monitoring companies in the world today, is mSpy.com.
Through the use of their web site, software and affiliate program, we are going to lay out everything you need to know about how to create your own software monitoring blog and how to make money with it in the process.
Step 1: Going Live with Your Software Blog
As mentioned above, creating a blog is the easy part. All you need to do is follow our simple blogging tutorial and setup your domain name and web hosting. The process literally takes 10 mins and you will be on your way.
Once your blog is live, you can then start focusing on the content creation for your site. Since we are focusing on software monitoring as our niche, we will want to create content that caters towards people who are already searching for such topics.
With “software monitoring” as our niche, we should refer back to mSpy.com and learn more about the software they offer, how it works and who their target audience is. The more you know about the product you are promoting, the better you can create content that caters to their needs, and ultimately build out your own authority site.
To get started, I recommend you check out the short 30-second video below to see how mSpy works.
In addition to the details provided through the short video below, mSpy software also offers the following features and benefits.
- WhatsApp, SMS, call logs, location tracking & 25 more features
- Compatible with Android, iOS, Windows and Mac OS
- Access mSpy from any desktop or mobile browser
- Multi-language support available 24/7
- Easy 5 Minute Software Install
While this is probably enough information to get started with content creation for your site, we can also use the Google Keyword Planner to see what other types of terms potential customers are searching for. In the screenshot below you will see a wide variation of keywords and search phrases like “how to monitor my kids phone calls”, “cell phone monitoring” and “desktop keylogger” — all of which can be done with mSpy’s software.
By knowing what type of search results people are typing in that result in visits to mSpy.com, we can take that same data and start creating content around these same keywords for our site. In most cases, this audience is looking for a solution on how to monitor internet usage on desktop of mobile devices, so the best way to target this audience would be through tutorials and guides, and ultimately leading them to purchase the mSpy software.
Keep the keywords and phrases from the screenshot above fresh in your mind, as we will revert back to them in the next chapter when focusing on monetization.
Step 2: Monetization with mSpy
Now that you have a good understanding of what the mSpy software is all about, you should now join their affiliate program.
Before covering some content monetization methods, let’s first dive into some of the many benefits you will receive as an mSpy affiliate, which includes.

- 120 days cookie life (When referring your audience to a software site, they might not purchase on the first visit. However, with a 120 day cookie in place, you will still earn a commission should they come back and order at a later time)
- 1.5% average refund rate (Promoting mSpy is a great opportunity for affiliates and bloggers as it has a very low refund rate — which also means the customers are very happy with the product)

Step 3: Creating Your Content and Promoting Your Blog
With your blog now in place and ready for content, it’s time to pull all of your resources together to make it a valuable resource for others while also optimizing it for success.
A common audience to go after is parents who want to monitor their children’s access to their mobile device. If you were to search Google for “how to monitor my childs iphone“, you would see the following results.
What’s important to note here is that nearly all of these articles are telling the person a different solution for how to monitor their child’s iphone access, calls and location. This is where you can do the same and monetize your content by recommending mSpy software.
Take the time to search all relevant keywords and questions that people might be searching for, which mSpy’s software could potentially solve. Write up your own original content, while also making sure they stay on target and provide value in the process. Also be sure to include a call to action within each article, such as “mSpy has a great monitoring solution. Click here to try it out!”.
Once you’ve create the content on your site, it’s time for some promotion to help you start ranking in the search results.
In most cases, the content on your site will be the determining factor of whether or not it will be successful. However, there are also many factors as well… such as ranking in the search results. To rank at the top of the search results, you will need to bring in some high value backlinks to your site — which is recommended through the use of guest blogging.
TIP: When trying to rank in the search results, be sure to go after long tail keywords, as this will make it a lot easier for your site to rank… and also give you an idea of exactly what your audience is looking for as well. (ie: “monitoring software” vs. “how to monitor my childs iphone”)
You can view the two resources below to learn more about how to effectively guest blog and build backlinks to your site.

Once you’ve mastered this art, you can then start gaining powerful backlinks to your site by writing software and security related posts on other high traffic blogs.
