Getting Serious About Your Blog As A Business

*Collaborative post.

More and more people are thinking about turning their blogging passion into a full-time business, and there are certainly many wonderful reasons to do so. The thrall of money is of course one of the top ones, but it is not the only reason. It is also a chance to exercise a particular joy that you have, and to share your own unique opinion and stance on things with the wider world. Nonetheless, turning your blog into a fully-fledged business has its challenges which you will need to deal with and overcome: what are they?

How Much Of A Venture?

The first thing you will need to decide upon is just how much of a business venture you want your blog to be. This is entirely up to you, and it is important to remember that the sky’s the limit. Of course, most commonly it is simply a matter of monetizing it, but ultimately keeping it as a kind of stay-at-home business. But if you want to set your sights higher, there is nothing technically stopping you looking through www.proplist.com for some commercial property and turning this into a fully-fledged operation. Whatever you feel is appropriate for your blog.

 

Writing Great Content

No matter how big you do desire to take it, there is one thing that is always going to remain the case, and that is that you need to write consistently great content. The better your content, the more of a chance you have of real success with your business, so this really is an important thing to bear in mind. This is true if it is just you writing at home, or if you have started up a whole team of writers to blog on different subjects under one company name. The content is always king.

Selling Products

One of the simpler ways to monetize a blog is to sell products alongside it. This is easy enough to do: the first challenge is to decide on what products are going to be saleable as a part of your blog’s brand, and which your customers are likely to actually click through to and buy. Sometimes, there is a match-up that just lends itself beautifully, such as a freelance writer’s blog selling the writer’s own books. But sometimes you will have to be a little more creative if you are to find the match. However, it is always possible.

 

Advertising

Another way to make money from your blog, and a method which could be enough to legitimize it as a business of its own accord, is to sell advertising space on your website. If you get enough visitors, then you will find that this is an incredibly effective money-maker. Of course, a lot of people prefer the idea of selling their own products through their blog, but if you want to go down this route then there is nothing wrong with that either. If you need help with this, take a look at www.lifewire.com

If you can focus on these things, you should be making money from your blog in no time.

3 Things You Need To Know About To Build Your Online Business

*Collaborative post.

Starting an online business could be a great idea for budding entrepreneurs who want to make a difference in the world. However, if you’re going to get started and build something that you can truly be proud of, you need to know about a few things first. Read on to find out what they are: 

 

Social Media Marketing

The first thing you need to know about is social media marketing. Social media marketing is one of the most powerful things you can do online if you’re going to start a business. Millions of people use social media every day, and search for businesses that they want to work with there. You need to know who your target audience is so you know which platforms are the best for you to use. You might also want to consider hiring a social media manager to help you run things and stay on top of everything.

Word Of Mouth 

Word of mouth reviews are pretty much unbeatable. They are so powerful because a real person is giving an enthusiastic recommendation, and people love recommendations from the people they know. You can make sure you’re getting word of mouth reviews by not only providing an amazing product/service, but unbeatable customer service too. Extra touches go a long way! 

 

SEO and PPC

SEO and PPC are your bread and butter when it comes to online marketing. PPC can actually help you to get results almost right away – learn more using the infographic below.

I hardly have any spare time these days but I can’t complain because this is exactly what I want out of life.

This Robo Dash, Remote Control Dog for Kids, would make an excellent gift this Christmas. Robo Dash is a cute puppy that follows you everywhere you go. It also follows commands and movement, barks, pants and wags his tail like a real life puppy!

I love this toy for my twins because they have been asking for a pet for sometime, and I think this Robo Dash would be a nice way to see how they will get along with a real life pet when they do get one. You can shop for Robo Dash at great stores like Argos, amazon, Very, Little Woods and more.

This All-new Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet | 10.1″ 1080p Full HD Display, 32 GB, Blue Kid-Proof Case would make an excellent gift this Christmas. I love the kid-proof case. We have a similar case and they do protect the tablet from falls, drops and all the usual damages that could happen when you give a child a tablet.

It comes in other colours as well, which is fab! I also love the fact that this tablet comes with a 2 year worry-free guarantee plus all the amazing features it has.
