Can You Blog Your Way to Financial Freedom?
With over hundreds of thousands of blogs being produced daily, the question comes to mind … "Can you blog your way to internet riches and financial freedom"?
While a good number of bloggers only blog for something to do as a hobby, there are another good number of people who blog to sell a product or affiliate a product from someone else's website. There are several forms of marketing you can affiliate onto a blog to make money from. One of the most common forms of marketing I see on blogs is AdSense, because it's the easiest to integrate onto your blog allowing blogger to input ads even in between posts.
Earning nickels and dimes off AdSense is not the only way to make money off of blogs though. Whether it's a simple template like blogger or a WordPress which is easier to customize in my opinion, blogs are free and limitless with what you can do with them. So when you ask the question, "is it possible to earn a living off the internet using only a blog"? Nothing is impossible.
You have to add fresh and unique content and offer readers something they can not get easily other places or otherwise they're just going to go elsewhere. You've got to offer them fresh unique content that intrigues them and sparks their interest if you ever hope to make a sale or get a lead from your blog. A good blog that has potential to make a ton of money requires constant upkeep and a lot more than a website in my opinion.
I'm not doubting a blogger's potential to make a fortune off of a well groomed blog but I am still saying it would definitely be a lot different game than running a website because the maintenance required is a lot more work than most people are used to and a lot of time is required to keep multiple readers intrigued and to provide new fresh content that sparks their interest. If your content is good enough and your readers are hooked, your ads / products on your blog will sell themselves and you will gain profit.
If you're a well established marketer than starting a blog for your fortune may not be the worst idea, but it is definitely not recommended for newbies or people trying to break into the internet marketing world because it's a hard game and requires much more than people starting out can handle.
