Can You Make Money Blogging? – A Must See Article Before You Start Your Blog
If I am not wrong, you are here because you are interested in making money with your own blog. However before we get into the topic of making money with blog, I think it is important to make your mind clear about why you want to start a blog!
Let's recall how you know this concept – make money blogging …. Ok, let me guess, you must have heard some stories that people can make big money just writing blogs, so you want to earn money in this way too, right? If your answer is yes, then you might want to hold on for a second, and think about this question "does making money by blogging really fit me?"
You may think this question a little stupid, (am I wrong that I want to earn money), anyway, this question is really worth asking before you start. Because not everyone is good at writing blog that make money, and not all the blogs can make money. This is some kind like choosing your online career, and blogging is just one of the practitioners. So if you can understand that you are not good at all kinds of jobs in the real world, you may understand why blogging may not fit you.
Anyways, let's start this career test now.
* Do you want to write articles every other day for your blog?
* What is your purpose to write a blog? Just for relaxing like writing a diary or you have something that you know very well, for example, if you know computer very well, then you want to write something about it to help other people?
* Do you blog for a living or just for fun?
The above questions are the keys that you will know whether you can make money blogging or not! Now let's analyze the questions and reveal the keys to succeed online.
The first question, if you want to make money online, you have to keep working, this is not an industry that can make you rich overnight, on the contrary, you have to work harder than you do in the real world to achieve your goal .
Technically, if you want to earn money with your blog, you must have visitors, there is no means if no one can find your blog. So how can people find your blog? Yes, I think you have known the answer, people can find your blog through search engine such as Google and Yahoo, and what you should do now is making search engines find you …. I will talk about this in more detail in the future post. By now, you just have to know that you have to keep writing for your blog day by day in order to be noticed by search engines.
Ok, time to reveal the first key – that is PERSISTENCE
The second question, if you just want to write a blog for relax, for example, you write something like "today's whether is so good, and I played football with my friends, I am very happy today", such content can never make you a dime. Why? If you want to earn money, you have to give people what they want, this is just as simple as this – a trade! And what kind of content can bring you money? Lol, I know you will ask this. Like I just said, you have to give them what they need, give them a method to solve their problem or tell them how to release their pain, that's what they need, people are looking for solutions, not your usual day diary!
Ok, time to reveal the second key – that is CONTENT
If you have been familiar with the above 2 questions, you may have some clues about what the third question wants to ask. Yes, this question reveals the third key – GOAL
You have to set a goal for yourself, without a goal, you even do not know what you want to achieve, and this will result in losing your interest. You have to set a long term goal and some short term goals, such goal can guarantee you keep moving. Ok, I am not going to talk too much about the importance of setting a goal, this is a very old topic.
Ok, time to stop now, you have to think carefully about the above 3 keys. Only if you have your GOAL, you can provide good CONTENT (valuable information) to your visitors, and you can PERSIST until you achieve your goal, you can finally end up with SUCCESS!
