Can you really earn money by blogging?
People become very skeptical when I tell them they can earn money by blogging. And I can truly understand why. You hear of a lot of aggressive marketing strategies nowadays. Blogging just doesn’t seem to be one of them. Or… is it?
You have so many people making money through email marketing, YouTube, and Facebook. How can you actually make an income by blogging?
Who is really doing this?
What you may not realize is that among all the internet chatter there are some people who are quietly “Killing it” with their blogs and are making more than decent incomes.
Take for example, “The Huntington Post” which earns about $2,330,000 a month as a blog. Or you might think of Techrunch which makes $800,000 a month. Or Perez Hilton at $450,000 a month. So, yes it can still be quite lucrative to own your own blog.
Do I have to be skilled at writing?
Not in the way people generally think they have to write. Most of the grammar you learned in English can be tossed away, when it comes to blogging. You just need to simply write the way you speak.
It should be written in a personable matter. Kind of the way you would sit down and talk with a good friend. Yes you do need to know how to use keywords in your writing. But now it’s incredibly easy to find a program that can help with that part of SEO.
Then why isn’t everyone doing this?
If you can make so much money blogging, then why isn’t everyone blogging? Imagine! As a blogger you can travel and work from everywhere. So why isn’t everyone blogging?
Well the simple truth is you need your blog to be considered an authority by the browser. You need to have not just a website, but an authority website.
It takes time to build that kind of traffic, especially when you’re not paying for advertising. Most people don’t have the patience to wait. Secondly, most people don’t know how to monetize their sites. This does take a bit of a learning curve.
What tools do I need to blog?
You need a website of course. And you need internet access. And that’s it… Of course you would want to make money as well. Becoming an affiliate of a product or products that are in the same niche as your blog is one of the best ways to monetize your blog.
So the answer is yes. You can earn money by blogging (and plenty of it)!
