Weekend Rewind: Get Your Hustle On: Part III
If you are not working on a plan to make money online you don’t know how to make money.
Especially in these economic times, blogging has become one way you can create your own economy whether you keep your full time job or not.
How I got into this whole thing was by accident. I was reading and writing blogs on BallerAlert and it appealed to me how you can quickly build an audience for a product or service. I had fun writing about issues that interested me. But I have always been a writer, just not a online writer. I started my own blog to see what happens. I used to think that blogging was a hobby–until I got my first check.
There are bloggers making upwards of $30,000 a month. The average is usually $300-5000/mo from advertising, affiliate marketing and other ways. However, only a small % of bloggers make money because they get bored and give up. I’m one Alphanista that will dump something if it gives me no drive. I will leave it alone after a few weeks. But I have been blogging everyday now for almost a two years. Eventually, I’d like to support myself fully on blogging and building other niche sites. It is a lot of work, but I like getting checks while I sleep and help others. Blogging does that. When I got my first check, I called everybody. Even the folks who thought what I was doing was a waste of time. I’m sure someone told the Twitter people that they were wasting theirs.
Twitter has millions of visitors but makes no money. However, someone will buy them at any moment and they will rake in millions, like YouTube. That’s worth the wait. So, what are you waiting for? It’s worth it to test it, educate yourself, and give it a try. Here are some reasons why folks start blogs:
- If you are working full time at a corporate gig there are all kinds of niche blogs you can create based on your expertise
- If you want to create passive, part time income
- If you want to build your brand or create a new one
Check out this lady’s story who paid off over $70,000 in debt just by blogging in 18 months. I highly recommend The Niche Blogger – Make Money Blogging program if you know nothing about blogging or if you are a blogger who needs advice and tools on marketing and making money. This woman takes you step by step, month by month on how she did it. I paid and signed up for it already.
Do not sleep on this. If you are committed and you have an interest, start a blog. If you don’t know what to blog about, find a niche or start a blog promoting someone else’s product, called affiliate marketing, and make money. Blogger.com and WordPress.org are the most popular platforms for blogging, but you need a program to tell you how to use it.
An Alphanista is always ahead of the curve, are you?
