The question of whether home business blogs make money or not is very relevant in the world of Internet marketing right now.
After all blogging is Internet marketing.
Having a home business blog is considered more the norm then the exception anymore.
Starting a blog is easy and inexpensive. I call it a home business blog because most people blog from home. However, you see more and more people blogging anywhere they can get Internet access.
People are blogging at Starbucks, their local library, at the beach, in a hotel, or even in the front seat of their car.
So if they are blogging to make money how are they doing it, or are they really even making money?
I am not a member of Empower Network, but I am very impressed with their blogging system and home business opportunity. There is no way to grow from zero to almost 30,000 members in less than two years without somebody making money!
I’m also very impressed with niche blogs. You see these on every category imaginable. Some of them are based on very broad themes while others are more of a micro-niche blog.
When you think about it it’s pretty neat that somebody who has never written anything in the past can sit down and start a blog and make money with it. It’s also pretty cool to think you can do this from the comfort of your own home.
Here’s what’s even better! I see people blogging in the park, on break at work, riding the train, sitting on the beach, at a Starbucks, and so on. You get the idea.
We might call this home business blogging, but in reality it’s an Internet marketing blog. As long as you can access the Internet you can blog wherever you’re at.
What makes this a business is the way that the blog is monetized. That is to say what makes it a profitable business is the way the blog owner is making money.
There are plenty of quality blogs where the owner doesn’t even do any writing. One good freelance writer can keep your blog full of unique content that people enjoy reading.
As a matter-of-fact this is actually a good way to branch into more micro-niches. Find a writer or two who enjoy researching and writing on just about anything, and you can have many profitable home business blogs.
One thing is for certain. You have to develop some Internet marketing skills if you expect your blog to ever reach the level of profitability.
You can learn this in discussion forums such as the Warrior Forum. Another great source for blogging training is Kim Roach’s Buzz Blogger.
The idea here is that you need to develop some skills and there’s no sense reinventing the wheel. For a home business blog to make money you need to go about it the right way. You might as well pay attention to people who are already doing it.Related VideoRelated News
