Blogs are so user-friendly, inexpensive and instant-gratification-filled that it’s no wonder they’re so prominent. All these factors and more contribute to some companies giving their blogs significant attention – even at the expense of their web sites.
Why would you want to advertise your own online blog? Well, the whole purpose of a blog is to document your thoughts, views, and opinions on a particular topic, issue, or subject. But why bother if no one actually reads your blog? Well, there is a point. Because it has other purposes in addition to giving information to the cyber world about your opinions. You can use it to generate cash! By signing up to programs such as Google AdSense for example or many other affiliate programs you can get your blog to work for you. If you are blogging to make money then you will definitely need to market it.
For me, what it comes down to is… I like to write and I love the freedom of blogging even more. What I don’t like however, is the time it takes to become a problogger. If just blogging were enough, many people who blog 365 days a year would all be probloggers. That is not how having a successful blog works though. There are many other things that a blogger must know to have success. Things such as key words, knowing how to monetize a blog, gaining back links and more.
I used this blog for the purpose of documenting my successes with my business. My projects, new content added to my website, keyword phrases I was ranking for…etc. Basically anything that had to do with my business, that was directly or indirectly because of my joining Mom Masterminds, I jotted down.
If you don’t want to send something edible, you can send it on a card, but just in a creative fashion. Check out this Read my blog here, for some unusual ways to share the news. I personally like the helicopter and photo booth one. If you happen to have a close friend or family member who is a graphic designer, ask him/her to help you.
Who wouldn’t believe that they could make six figures blogging, when all of the problogger guru’s have been telling us that all along? I am sure that you have seen those full page ad’s selling some program that will surely make you a rich jerk and a millionaire. Those ads that have been written by copywriters who know how to suck in the desperate people who want to ditch their boss and learn how to make money online.
Don’t feel overwhelmed, just take one affiliate internet marketing tip at a time and work at it. If you keep at it, you will learn and earn, I promise.
