Make Money Blogging – Is It Really Possible?
“How do you make money blogging?” I get that question all the time. The answer is simple: Empower Network. But I want to explain it in more detail to be certain that you are clear.
What is “blogging?”
A “blog” is actually shortened from the words, web log. It started as a place that the originators of the internet posted a log of their activities each day. When blogs started everyone asked the same questions, “How do you make bank blogging?”
Today, blogging is a multi-billion dollar industry that is an accepted part of the news cycle and internet business.
About me for a minute
I make a full-time living from blogging. I get asked every day at least twice a day, “How do you make money blogging?” And it’s never just a question; it always sounds like I found a way to walk on the ceiling. Even funnier, is when people say, “I tried that. You can’t make a living that way.”
Really, well, I am. Lots of it. Enough to be able to take vacations and home-school my children. I am making money from blogging.
So… how do you make money blogging?
Well, there are the extreme cases, like Arianna Huffington, who sold the Huffington Post for millions or Perez Hilton, whose blog about Hollywood made him a star (and wealthy).
There are also those who write blogs for other people. This really doesn’t make sense to me. Why would you want to work for someone else? This provides an easy answer to our question, “How do you make money blogging?” Not writing for other people.
For most of us, making money from blogging involves making connections and getting lots of traffic from Internet search engines.
Do this all by yourself – making the connections, getting your blog highly visible by all of the search engines and getting lots of inbound traffic can be very difficult. For many people, it can be a full-time job, with not a lot of pay… for years. Still not the answer to the question, “How do you earn money blogging?”
Join a blogging network – Empower Network is the largest and most effective of these networks. Their blogging platform sets up that blog automatically with search engines and places your blog in a network.
So exactly how do you make money blogging? Well, when people land on your blog, there are advertisements and pay per click ads that can generate money.
The best part of it all is that there really is no ceiling to the amount of money you can make blogging. The more great content you write, the more people will come to your website. Then you’re making money from blogging, lots of it.
I don’t know about you, but I would rather start making money with my blog today rather than spends months or years trying to get it noticed.
