Blogs are everywhere! Every newspaper, magazine, organization, company, school, niche, hobby, public figure, etc. has a blog or blogs associated with it. Statistics show that there are over 300 million blogs online and that number is increasing.
But why have blogging exploded? Not only in journalism but also among women who run small businesses looking to “get out of the rat race” and obtain financial freedom?
Well, because blogging works!
Just in the last decade, blogging has not only become a standard in journalism but also a super effective way for solo female entrepreneurs to work location-independent, do fulfilling work that they love and make money. Lots of it. That’s right, you can make massive amounts of money blogging. There has never been a better time for you to get out there, get online and start blogging.
Now, you may be saying to yourself, my business, product or idea doesn’t lend itself to blogging. You may sell tennis balls and think there is no reason for you to blog. But, I am here to tell you otherwise. Blogging is the single most effective way to turn a person just perusing your site into a customer. Wanna know why? Because a blog educates and informs its readers. And when you educate and inform your reader about your ideas, products and services, they are more likely to buy from you. Why? Because you are showing your readers that you are an authority and expert on that topic. Soon, they will come to trust your opinions and recommendations and ultimately become your customer. So the next time you visit potterybarnkids.com to order something for your kids and you see a blog post about “How to Organize the Playroom“, you’ll know what they’re really doing.
But you’ve got to blog the right way.
