How to start a business from home
There are many reasons why you may want to work from home. Maybe you are a parent that has small children and you want to look after them while supporting your family. You may be retired and are looking for an extra income or you may just want to start your own business and haven’t got much money to start up.
Or you might have a dream of being able to work anywhere, from any location, maybe while travelling. These are only some of the reasons why you may want to work from home and I’m going to show you how this is possible. There is a way that more and more people are using to gain financial freedom, and you may be surprised, but it’s through blogging.
How can a blog be a way to earn money? Maybe you thought a blog was just a way to write about your experiences, like a diary. Well, whenever you look something up on the internet, chances are you find the answer on a blog. Most articles online are blogposts.
There are thousands of bloggers out there, most are hobby bloggers, but an increasing number are building profitable incomes from their blogs. How do they do this?
First of all, you need to think of your blog as a business. It’s not a hobby, it’s not something you can put to one side when you don’t feel like writing. It does need your attention for the first few months, like any other business would. And the way to make a blog pay is very simply through advertising. More specifically, afflliate advertising.
What is that, I hear you ask. When I first started, I had no clue what affiliate marketing was. I had heard the term but wasn’t familiar with its meaning. Put very simply, affiliate marketing is what you do when you advertise a product on your blog. For example, if you are writing a blog about healthy dieting, you can add links in your blog that recommend dieting products for sale. These are not your own products but they are products that another company offers that you can recommend, and you get a small commission every time a reader of yours makes a purchase.
I know there are a lot of people out there like me, who want to start a home business but they don’t know how to do this or where to start. My aim is to guide you through the process of starting a blog and show you how to do it every step of the way.
If you don’t know where to begin or you haven’t had any experience in blogging or business, you have come to the right place.
If you already have blogging experience but don’t know how to turn your blog into a profitable business that earns you money, you will find helpful information here and will learn how to achieve your goal.
Be prepared to work hard
Starting a blog isn’t that difficult once you know how. The hard part is turning that blog into a profitable business and earning a regular income, month after month. It’s also not a business where you can earn money straight away. This is a long term game. It will take a lot of dedication and time, but you will have the satisfaction of knowing that the more work you put in, the quicker you will receive results and the better your results will be.
Any business that starts up will not earn much in the first year or two. And on top of that you will need quite a large amount of investment to start it in the first place. Starting a blog is similar in that it will take time to produce results, but you have hardly any start up costs! You can even do this in your spare time, there is no deadline to meet, so you can work at your own pace.
And you will learn so much! You will reap the benefits not only in creating a monthly income but also in creating something from nothing, the satisfaction of knowing that you have achieved an amazing goal all by yourself and you will learn so much along the way. It’s a win win situation!
Let me show you how
I knew my background as a teacher many years ago would come in handy again one day. Let me guide you and show you how you can turn a hobby or an interest into an income. By writing about it! More specifically, by blogging about it.
You don’t even need to be a good writer. We are all communicators because we all communicate and speak to each other. Blogging is very similar, it’s like telling a friend about something we like or love. As simple as that.
I will be showing you how to start, in a very simple way and walk you through the process step by step, so that you can find all of the information you need here, in one place. I will be drawing from my own experience of starting my blog and how I monetized it, and what strategies I used. Everything will be based on my own experience of the process and how you can avoid making the mistakes I made.
