Paired with the right WordPress hosting plan, a blog has huge online earning potential because it is always online and accessible to readers. This regular online presence increases the likelihood of more traffic to your site!
For those of you who don’t know what traffic is, traffic is the visitors that come to your site. A site with a lot of traffic has a lot of visitors. More visitors in most cases equals a higher online earning potential to earn more money.
Blogs provide information people want
In most cases the information on blogs is one of 2 things, either timely or timeless. When I read blogs, I find what I’m looking for and often times when I look at the date it was published, more often than not, it was published anywhere from 3-5 years ago. This is an example of how some content can be timeless. A blog written about the Covid-19 pandemic would be considered timely because this is a current event in our society.
Motivation to tap into huge online earning potential
Blogs provide motivation for others. A blog written in the right way, speaks to its readers and inspires them to achieve something. Some authors add humor to their blog and make their readers laugh.
Some blogs provide real stories that readers can relate to and this is motivational. These posts create an “if I can do it, so can you” kind of a feel or effect. Sometimes that is the push or swift kick that people need. Often times people purchase information from self-help books. But I advise all readers to save their money, and visit a few blogs on the topic first.
Some books come from blogs
As an editor and ghostwriter, I work with many authors who take their content from their blogs and publish it in books. In some cases the authors who do this, are authors of self-help books. So my inside scoop is go to the blog first.
What I often encourage the authors I work with to do, is make sure their book is more detailed and it elaborates on their blog posts. So this way they give their reader something more and something different.
The reason that motivating others is related to your own online earning potential is simple. What we put out as people, is what we attract. Like attracts like – the law of attraction. We have to motivate others to continue doing well ourselves.
Maximize your online earning
Some people mistake and think they can’t earn money online because they don’t have a computer or their computer is too slow or too old (as I write this on a MacBook from 2013). That is not the case. With the emergence of Smartphones and Apps, the possibilities are now endless. With the WordPress App below, you can update your blog, reply to comments, check stats, and more right from your phone from the convenience of your current location.
Speaking of apps, the other night I literally made $10 in 3 minutes from my bed! It was quick, effortless, and enjoyable. I used the Fiverr App to create an invoice and accept payment within 2 minutes. The other minute, I spent completing the task. Read on below!
Find easy freelance jobs
As a freelancer, I can literally do copy and paste jobs. For example, a prospective client may message or email me the text they need proofread and it can range from 1 sentence to several paragraphs. From there, I send an invoice. Once the buyer accepts, I can copy and paste my revised version or put the text in Google Docs and send them the Google Docs version.
With this system, I don’t have to get up to turn on a computer and I can even do jobs like this while waiting in line in a retail store (I have done that many times). I share this with you so you can see the possibility to have a huge online earning potential when I combine my blog with my freelance services.
Blogs can be updated
As a blogger myself, I often explore other blogs in the make money from home genre. What I often find is blogs published in let’s say 2018 with viral posts, will have several updates to those posts. One common update in this genre is when people share their earnings reports.
I recently read a very humbling blog post from Ling at insavvypanda.com. Ling wrote a few posts where she documented her monthly earnings along her journey to accumulating a few thousand monthly in blogging revenue. All great post by the way! But what was humbling for me was the fact that one of her updates to one of her posts was how she would no longer be posting her monthly earning reports.
In addition, to Ling at insavvypanda.com, I want to mention another very successful blogger I recently came across Virginia Nakitari at Earn Smart Online Class.com. Last year, she wrote a post discussing her earnings as a blogger. One of the highlights I want to mention, is that she posted her earnings as motivation to other bloggers out there. The point I want to make as I reference these 2 very successful bloggers is exactly what I stated above:
“These posts create an “if I can do it, so can you” kind of a feel or effect.”
As you can see, as a blogger and a writer, I am also an avid reader. I read lots of blogs about information I am interested and equally important information that I write about. So although I have my methods for improving and maintaining a huge online earning potential, I continue to acquire additional knowledge used by many of the experts before me.
One piece of advice I learned came from Michelle at MakingSenseofCents.com. In her post titled “5 Ways I Made My Blog Go Viral – 2,000,000 Views A Month in One Year!”, she hit on some pillars for being a successful blogger and having a huge online earning potential! Talk about an inspirational post…
You can always learn new ideas
In addition, Michelle discussed her and husband’s journey of launching their blog which included preparing pre-launch posts or getting blog posts ready before the site went live. This was big for me because again, I am also a ghostwriter.
As a ghostwriter I write a lot of content. I recently realized some of that content goes towards the pre-launch posts that Michelle was writing about. Bingo! Content, content, content, before you even have a web hosting account.
Make blogging mutually beneficial
I love blogging because it offers me an escape that benefits me and my readers. I can write to and interact with my audience compared to being a ghostwriter where I just write for an audience that I will never engage with, while at the same time supporting the person claiming the text in their pursuit to tapping into the huge online earning potential from the posts.
If I could leave my readers and potential bloggers with 1 piece of importance advice, it would be, to write and write often. Notice, this doesn’t mean publish everything you write. I have come to the realization that sometimes I need to delete drafts I have written, and I am ok with that. Thank you again for tuning in. In closing, a blog is like an investment. What you put in it will greatly impact what you get out of it. Just like any other reasonable investment, there is huge online earning potential in a blog!
