Hands down blogging are the easiest entry into the world of Internet Marketing and online profits. It is also the fastest-growing sector. Depending on the source, there are either 70 million blogs or just in excess of 100 million. No matter? the figure is organic as every day tens of thousands of people start a new blog.
What is the call of the blog?
Most blogs tend to be recreational, familial, or knowledge-based. Often it is just an online journal of the day to day tedium of someone’s personal life that they want to share with the world. Others put up blogs as a way of staying in touch with family members — usually password restricted. Still, others want to share their expertise or knowledge in a certain field. It is the last of these which has captured the minds and creativity of those with a penchant for earning money.
Originally blogging started as a commercial-free venue for information dissemination. Not so anymore. Savvy internet marketers soon recognized it as an effective form of marketing and it wasn’t long after that ad began to pop up on blogs.
Blogging is now a fully vested online commercial enterprise. Think of it as a virtual publication, as a magazine, or a weekly/ report covering a singular topic or theme. If the content is good visitors return to read new posts. As with any good publication, advertising pays the bills and puts leftover cash into your bank account – sometimes to the tune of five figures a month!
The siren song of money is seductive and the great thing about blogging is that practically anyone can do it — I know of six and seven-year-olds making more than just pocket money, senior citizens supplementing their inadequate pensions, and people of all ages pulling in incomes that stagger the mind. It’s no wonder that there is a worldwide stampede to blog for money. Consider these points:
Ease of Entry. If money is the siren song, then the mantra of? anyone can do it? is the refraining chorus of the song. The learning curve is not as steep as say starting your own online store but if that is your ultimate destination, then a blog is a good place to cut your teeth. In the offline world, it would be akin to starting with a hot dog stand to eventually owning your own gourmet dining restaurant.
Affordability: As the hot dog stand, blogging is cheap – sheesh! Even free! Yes, you can actually start your online blogging venture without spending a dime. Platforms such as Blogger and WordPress are free (note: the free version of WordPress does not allow for advertising). Google? free websites? and you will find a list of many more. Do all offer a selection of? done for your templates? which means that you do not have to learn how to put up a website or learn a new cyber language. No money to pay a webmaster, no fees to pay for hosting. Can’t get any cheaper than that.
Easy Back Office Administration: You can take your time to familiarize yourself with all the options that are available to you to make your blog unique. The good thing about this is that as you become more confident on the net, you can always log in to your back office and tweak both the appearance and other elements of your blog, such as comments, ads, social marketing. There is plenty of online training that will help you with your new venture. Before you know it you’ll be speaking a different language about traffic, monetization, virtual real estate and billboards, search engines, spiders, and bots.
Money. You can start making money right away. Don’t expect to hit the high notes on the decibel chart of WOW! but on a good day, you will be able to look out the window and see the promise of a money truck rolling up to your driveway as a reality. The neat thing is that as you begin to make a few dollars here and there, your motivation goes up, you polish your skills, and the money grows.
Time Friendly: Most people who look at the internet as a potential source of income have a J.O.B. and would like to
3 earn and additional income and
.3 develops a secure financial safety net.
4.4 Many want to quit that J.O.B.
Take action. Devote just one hour a day if that is the most you can, and you are on your way to building your own internet muscles. Equally important, your mindset shifts. By just devoting a mere hour a day, you will be taking action and begin to build your internet marketing IQ and a new brainpower blueprint will emerge. A latent entrepreneur emerges.
It’s no wonder that tens of thousands are taking up blogging for money – it’s more than just a hobby!
