There has never been a better time to start your blog!
If you’ve been indecisive about starting a blogging business to make money, you are about to make the best decision of your life. You just need the motivation and information to help you start your own blog.
Why start a blog? Because bloggers are the heart and soul of the Internet and successful bloggers know how to make money. This business is exploding with plenty of room to grow and get your piece of the action.
Many companies have expanded their marketing strategy to include blogs which drive traffic to their websites, and it’s working! This platform works organically with Google search which makes it much easier to get to the top of the search results
10 Inspiring reasons to start your blog!
- You’re tired of working for the man or woman and getting no where in your job.
Maybe you have a corporate job and you need that pay check to pay the bills. The great thing about a blogging business is you can build it at you own pace, while you work at your corporate job. Spend a few extra hours a week and find your true passion. A strategically planned blog can make you money beyond your expectations and it will make money while you sleep; plus, you get all the credit for your success.
- You have a skill set or knowledge that is teachable and you want to share it with the world.
If you have a specialized skill set or experience in subject matter, most likely, there are many people who would love to learn about it too. If you would just take the time to write it down and connect on social media you could be making money with affiliate marketing and later turn your posts into an ebook for sale.
- You’re an at home mom and want to become a mompreneur to make some extra income.
Mommy blogs are taking over the Internet and making big money. If you already have a following on Facebook try sharing a mommy moment and see if you get a “hellyeah” or get a question where you provide a solution or give an antidote. Try different posts to engage your followers and find out how much interest you peak. If you get even one response, then you are a prime candidate to push your Facebook followers to your blog. When you have followers who trust you they will also buy from you. It doesn’t have to be your own products. Did you know Target has an affiliate link that you can place on your blog and you get paid a commission?
- You work in a competitive business and you want to be known as a thought leader and influencer in your industry.
A blog is simply the best way for anyone in business to exploit their knowledge and prove they are the expert! A smart strategy is to own your blog and wherever you go though out your career you keep it. It’s a way to collect contacts and keep in touch with those you can do business with after the non-compete contract expires.
- You’re looking for a proven strategy to make more sales with your company.
Sales is challenging and a blog is an excellent strategy to connect with a larger audience and make a brand for yourself that people will remember, trust and buy from over someone listed in the company directory.
- You want to create a business that will eventually be automated to work and generate income while you’re on vacation.
This has always been my ultimate goal, to have a business run while I’m on vacation six months of the year. Automation is the key, and the Internet has the technology to get you there. The technology is simple and cheap and you deserve to go on more vacations for your brilliant efforts!
- You want to have a platform that will expand as your business generates more revenue and grows.
If done correctly, by registering for your own domain with a WordPress.org blog, your website is expandable and will allow your business to grow beyond your expectations. There are many who start out with a free hosted blog solution to later run into a brick wall. If you follow the instructions in my blog posts you’ve started on the right path to grow your business to infinity.
- You have unique gift ideas that you can share and promote to generate income.
One of the best strategies to make money on the Internet is affiliate marketing. Amazon has a program where you can pick specific gift ideas and place them on your site or you can automate it with gifts ideas that fit your subject matter on your blog. The key to driving traffic to your blog is through social media strategies and DesignWrx.com has the strategies to guide you.
- You’re a coach and you want to help others achieve their goals.
Do you have a coaching business? A blog is the smartest way to reach a large targeted audience where you can share your wisdom. Once you make connections with individuals or groups you develop strategies and email funnels to convert those interests into paying clients.
- You are a person who knows how to research and find ways to get things done, share your know how with the world.
There are many who love to research and find solutions, techniques and processes to get things done. Thousands of people are looking for your solutions. Why not post them on a blog or offer a complex solution for a small cost and make money for your hard work in research and solutions?
My husband who has worked for several large corporations finally started his own blog. He knew there was potential to makemoney with a blog, but he never thought about the possibilities enough to come up with a subject he could be passionate about and manage in a blog.
He was installing security doors to one of our rental units and he loves to document his work while taking pictures. He realized this was something he could not just write about, but provide step by step instructions with images, so he decided to start a blog on how to repair on your own. Now, with his very own blog he has signed up for affiliate programs with Home Depot and Lowes to add-in suggestions to purchase tools and equipment used within his project. These affiliate programs pay cash for referrals.
Forget “Tool Time Tim” this is, “Tool Blogging Jim!”
Blogging is no different than verbally telling your friend what you already know and where to find it. You just need to capture your story in video or images and write about it, then share it with thousands on social media. There is a reason why it’s called viral marketing, people love to share. Your loyal audience will be taking your advice and buying what you recommend, and for the first time you will make commissions on your suggestions.
