An Article About Blogging
So if you found yourself on this blog post today then I would assume you were probably on the internet doing some research about blogging. Maybe you are wondering how to setup your very own blog, or trying to figure out how so many average people are blogging to generate an additional stream of income for their family. I didn’t even realize blogs had the potential to be profitable until early last year.
Ever since I started this blog about 6 months ago I have had people calling me each and everyday asking for more info about my products and businesses. I have also made extra income when people come to my blog and buy an information product, or service I have for sale.
Benefits of Blogging
When you have a blog setup about your particular niche (for example this is a home business/online marketing blog) you will begin attracting like minded people to your website. Although blogging is definitely a long term strategy, you can notice some results if you consistently blog for 90 days in a row.
If you take some time to learn SEO or search engine optimization, you will learn how to rank your blog posts on the front page of Google and other popular search engines. This will give you free, targeted, and long term traffic to your website! Why pay for driving traffic to your website when you have hundreds of articles ranked on the front page of Google for free?
What is really cool about blogging though, is that once you publish an article it is on the internet forever! You are building up what us online marketers like to call ‘digital real estate‘. Just like owning multiple real estate properties, where people pay you a monthly fee to live there, when you have hundreds or even thousands of piece of this digital real estate, people will be finding your blog left and right! I am sure a few of them will click on your banner ads or hyperlinks to your product or service, and if your offer is good enough they will whip out their credit card and BUY!
Blogging for Profit
So now that you know a little bit about blogging, and the benefits of blogging, you are probably curious as to how people actually earn an income from blogging. There are actually many ways you can go about doing this, from promoting affiliate programs on your site or a network marketing companies product or opportunity. You can put banner ads on the top, left, right hand side of your blog with whatever affiliate program or product you are trying to promote.
For example since my blog is based mostly upon home based business and online marketing, I would market a home business training course whether it be a webinar, E-book or audio course. If you want to make money in your niche find the biggest problem in your industry (the pain) and then provide them with the solution (the painkiller).
If you are promoting a network marketing product and opportunity, you can again ad banners to the top/bottom or side of your blog. I recommend the ad being linked to a capture page where your prospect can enter their name, email and phone number etc so this way you can stay in touch with them and build the relationship.
Also make sure it sends them to an overview video or presentation. Sending them directly to the signup page without the chance to watch an overview or any type of company presentation won’t work!
Trust me I have made this mistake before and wondered why nobody was joining! Let the capture page generate the lead for you, and then let the presentation do all the telling and selling for you.
