Why Start A Blog?
There are a lot of reasons to start a blog here are a few examples of why.
- Show Off Your Passions
- You Like To Write
- Make Money (eventually)
- Teach Others A New Skill
- Get Your Word Out To Others
Show Off Your Passions
We all have different passions in this life an example of a passions someone could use on a website/blog. Is if you like to do photography, they can use a blog to talk about their photography and also sell prints on the site they made. Just say you are a traveler you travel around the world so, you could create a blog to show off our experiences around the world. While also telling others where to stay, eat, attractions they might want to check out. To be hones the reasons are endless to start a blog that is up for you to decide you know?
You Like To Write
Blogging is a way to express yourself through words and some images that are posted alongside those words. If you like to write than blogging is for you. It really doesn’t matter what you write about because it is your blog so you can write away without a care in the world.
The only people that a blog wouldn’t work out for like we all know is the ones that don’t like to write. I see it as why eat something or do an activity if you don’t enjoy doing it right? So blogging wouldn’t work out for the ones that don’t like to write, but hey you never know you could learn to love it ha.
Make Money (eventually)
You can definitely make money with blogging but it will take some time in order to make money with blogging.
Why do I say that it will takes a while to make money with a blog?
The reasons being is because, working online whether that be through a blog, freelancing, sponsored posts, affiliate marketing and a lot of others ways. It takes times to gain traction in the online world, you won’t build a huge audience (traffic) to your site in just a matter of few days or weeks. It can take months even a few years to make money a full time income online, it really is all dependent on you and if you really want it or not.
If you had an impression a blog could get you rich quick nope it isn’t the case, but if you are persistent, with time, and the hunger to want it you will make it happen.
Teach Others A New Skill
Have you ever gone online and looked up how to do something then found a website with the steps on how to do this certain task?
I know I have and that is what you can do with a blog you can write posts on DIY projects for around the house, gardening, how to train your dog and many more the ideas are infinite. Whatever you find interesting you could teach others how to that and there are a lot of people, out there searching on how to do this and that.
A blog could help you out with that write up good content maybe even with a video tutorial for the ones that learn better that way. You could quickly make a video then upload it to your blog with the written parts of the DYI and how to’s, pretty cool huh?
Get Your Word Out To Others
We all have our opinions on life and how we should live them some of us will agree with the words you speak some will not that is just the way life works. Writing on a blog you can target those people that think like you and use the Internet to share your words to the world. Whether that is you want spread your word of wisdom of conspiracy theories, religion, or even personal development. If you can write about it for days and keep on writing about that topic and sub topics of that main topic hey go for it.
One thing I have learned is don’t let the haters discourage you from trying to get your word out to the world because they can’t stop you only you can stop yourself you know?
Now you know why you should start a blog so here is how.
How To Start A Blog To Make Money
If you look up this term in the search engine which you probably have before you will find a lot of different people talking on how to make money online with a blog. These are some ways people on those sites make money with their blog, I do some of the same it can be a good way to make part-time, full time and passive incomes.
A List Of A Few Ways To Make Money
- Affiliate Marketing
- Selling Your Own Products
- Promoting Other Peoples Products
What is affiliate Marketing anyway?
In short it is when you sign up for a program (usually free to sign up) you will get an affiliate link for that program then you post that link, into a blog post, a sales funnel, somewhere on a post in social media which is call a CTA (CALL TO ACTION).
When you review or talk about this product to your readers with that CTA they will click on the link which goes to the product. If they decide to buy you end up getting a commission from that product, that commission can range anywhere from 1%-5% all the way up to 30%-50%.
Since in this case you will be using a blog to use all you would have to do is review the product write your review get your CTA (at least 2-3 in the post), post some pictures in with the content, edit your content then publish. As you start to gain traffic on your blog then the money can start to come in. The only way to make any commission is through them clicking and buying from your affiliate link.
You can start for free with these programs
These are a few of many free affiliate programs out there you just have to find them, all you would have to do is look it up on Google, Bing, Yahoo and you will find what you are looking for.
Find the products you want to promote on your blog but make the product relevant to the content you have already written on your blog. This is because you are trying to target a certain market or audience and if you aren’t consistent with that niche (topic) your readers will be thrown off and you won’t make many sales.
Just say you have a site that is talking about the beauty industry all your content will be about the beauty industry and sub topics or niches inside of the beauty industry. You can find different products on that niche really any niche can potentially make you money.
One thing I will say though is MONEY ISN’T A GARENTEE
Is Blogging A Scam?
I know you have heard of this quote before ‘Rome was not built in one day”
It took centuries in order for Rome to build the empire it did it may have taken centuries, but that doesn’t mean you and your blog or even an online venture has to take that long to build your empire. You can do it if you really believe you can blogging is legit and you can be the next success story.
Don’t Believe The Hype Of The Income Claims If They Don’t Tell You The Nitty Gritty
What I mean by this is the fact that you can make money online in many ways, which you can use your blog to leverage these other programs if you wish. If you ever looked up ways to work online before you may have come across people showing income claims of their making $3k in a day or even $100K in a month. These can happen but have you noticed that some of these people don’t tell you how they got to this point?
NOPE A LOT DON’T
- High Ticket Program
- Low Ticket Program
These people you see promoting these products, programs and showing you their income statements have a big email list, a social media following, been doing this for years. So they are experts in this field they know what works and doesn’t yeah everybody, is still learning new things the online world changes never stays the same.
You see everything takes time in order to make money. So don’t let these other people let you think it is really easy to make money online it will take you a short amount of time to do so because it won’t. Are the High ticket programs legit they can be same with the low ticket and mlm’s. The difference is high ticket you can make $1000’s of dollars in one sale, while low ticket and mlm’s it takes a lot more purchases in order to make the same amount.
With that being said no matter how you want to make your Money whether that is through BLOGGING, AFFILIATE MARKETING, HIGH TICKET, LOW TICKET, MLM remember time and consistency is key no overnight money. We all have to work for our money.
Look at it like this if you are still working a regular 9 to 5 J.O.B if you work you get your hourly rate and get paid at the end of the week or sometimes every 2 weeks. Also, if you don’t go to work you won’t make any money because you weren’t at work am I right?
Yes you can make a passive income which is creating content with your affiliate links on your blog. Even if it is a few months or older you can still make money off of the link if the link is still active when people click and buy. So working on your blog is a good way to do this and if you like blogging go create a blog and eventually reap the benefits of your hard work.
