Blogging for A Living – Two Paths, Same Goal…
You can start blogging for a living in one of two ways. Your blog can be a source of information/entertainment that people will flock to for the enjoyment of it. A blog with enough followers will attract advertisers, just as traditional newspapers and magazines do. And if your blog gains a large following, you will find advertiser approaching you for the opportunity of putting their goods and services in front of your followers. Also, if your following is large enough ( and you can build that following by posting on purpose ) you can put products and services in front of them that they might be interested in buying and making commissions from sales on your site – this is called affiliate marketing.
The other way to make money with a blog is to promote a convential business. So if you have a brick and mortar business, or if you are starting home-based business ( like an multi-level marketing business for instance ) you can use your blog to promote your business by presenting information that will help your potential customers solve their day to day problems using your products and services.
The key to blogging for a living is to be consistent. You must provide information that your target audience is interested in reading. You must help them by either entertaining them, educating them, or helping them solve their problems.
