I have a home business that I make money with. Blogging is my primary method of promotion. You’re going to find that this has become true with many home business opportunities.
My primary business model is affiliate marketing. I also incorporate list building into my promotional efforts. What you see on my blog is various ways I do this.
Home business blogging income is something anyone can do. Here are a couple of things you need to keep in mind.
1. Write your own content.
2. Hire a freelance writer.
Many people get hung up on the fact that they are not really good at writing, so therefore they do not start a blog. I would submit to you that some of the most successful blogs on the Internet today have their content primarily written by an outsourced writer.
Many people who try to make money as a writer are not really qualified to do so. This becomes apparent by the prices they charge, and the quality of the article they write. If you’re going to hire an outsourced freelance writer you need to be cautious about who you hirer.
Poor quality of content on your blog is a direct reflection on you. Whether you write the articles, or hire somebody to do it, this is your blog. Your blogging income will never get off the ground if it is full of content that nobody wants to read.
A good way to start your own home business blog is to choose a niche you are interested in. You may find that you like writing your own content.
It’s actually much easier to write about something when you enjoy the topic. It is also easier to research content ideas when you enjoy what you’re reading.
This will come across in a style and type of articles you write. Subscribe to some of the email newsletters or RSS Feeds for blogs in the niche you want to get started in.
You can receive these updates via email and then go to the blog and read the article. It’s actually a pleasure to read articles that are written by somebody who enjoys what they’re writing about.
For example, on my blog I enjoy writing my own content and hiring a freelance writer. This is actually a good way to keep your blog current when you’re a busy professional with a full-time career.
Never let lack of time stop you from creating a home business blogging income. We all have the same amount of time every day, but it’s the way we choose to use it that generally separates successful from failure.
I like the affiliate marketing and email marketing business model. Building a list and selling affiliate products to it is a good long-term strategy for generating income. A blog can be a great way to build a list and also promote affiliate products.
I would encourage you to take a look around my blog hopefully you’ll be impressed with what you find. Home business blogging income is a great way to make money as an affiliate marketer in conjunction with email marketing.
