If you enjoy writing and would enjoy earning some extra money, then you might want to become a professional blogger.
A professional blogger is someone who earns money by writing (blogging) about stuff that people want to read. The money is earned when people click on the advertisements or they buy a product recommended by you in your blog post.
But why is Now the best time to become a pro blogger and start a blog?
Over the last few years, people have changed how they shop. In the past, we would make three or four stops. We would go to the butcher for meat, grocer for groceries, the mall for clothing and the eye doctor for glasses. Now people go to the big box department stores, like Walmart, where they can shop for everything in one spot.
When was the last time you were at your local mall? If it was recently, you probably would have seen many stores closing their doors. This is because the traffic of customers with money in hand has slowed down.
In most households, both parents work full-time and often one or both parents work two jobs. Life is just too busy to make several stops. It is easier to go to a big box store.
But more recently there is a new trend. And that is with the huge growth of online shoppers. More people than ever in history are shopping online to avoid the crowds and save time, as well as money.
As a profession blogger, you have the ability to satisfy all of these needs for people and you can make a living for yourself in the process. 🙂
Niche Marketing through blogging is one of the funnest ways to make money.
Niche Blogging is when you create a blog that solves a problem for someone. Let me explain. Let’s say there is a crowd of people in the world who have an ongoing problem with their pet bringing fleas in the house. They have tried everything and can’t get rid of the fleas. So they go online looking for help and find your blog. While reading your blog post, they decide to take your advice and buy a product that you recommend.
It’s a win-win for both of you. They get rid of their fleas and you make money. Imagine helping hundreds of readers. The more people you help, the more money you can make.
The reason I love professional blogging, as a way to make money, is because I get to be in control. With a traditional job, I don’t feel in total control.
When you are a professional blogger, you get to decide on your niche. It can be anything you want. You are an expert. And writing about something that stirs your passion is fun!
When you create a website (blog) about a topic you are passionate about you can then monetize that site. And there are many different ways to do it.
You can do affiliate marketing, sell your own products, add advertising programs like Google Adsense or even build a list.
Things are tight with the economy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make money online. I am really enjoying making money from Amazon, affiliate programs and Google Adsense.
If you have been hit hard with the current economy, now is the time to become becoming a professional blogger.
