Blog marketing is something that all blog owners do. They market their blog so that they can get readers, and make a profit from their blogs. Marketing their blog means to get it out there so that others that are interested in it can find it and read it. It is also a great way to sell things by using affiliate links and programs. Blog marketing can very well become a home business if that is something that you are interested in.

Having a home business by blog marketing would definitely entail that you have more than one blog. If this is something that you are considering, you will want to make a list of markets that your blogs can cover. You will find that your blogs will do best when you only have one market per blog. For example, if you have a blog about cats, you will not want to include anything on the blog about kitchen appliances. This is because the readers that read your blog and visit your blog to learn more about cats and what you have to say about them will not be interested in learning anything about kitchen appliances. Once you have overcome the relevancy issue, you will be ok. You can however, have a blog about pets, and then blog about all of the many pets that you want to include.

In order to make a living by blog marketing, you need to know every aspect of it. You need to know what needs to be done to get readers to your blog, how to write about the things that you are promoting and how to get it up in search engine rankings. Doing so will lead to successful blog marketing and making a home business income with it.

One big aspect of blog marketing is SEO. SEO is search engine optimization and it consists of optimizing your blog so that the search engines will find it and rank it as high as possible. Which also leads to more traffic and leads from your blog. If you do not have time to learn SEO, and apply it to all of your blogs, hiring someone to do this for you might be something that you want to consider. Especially if time is an issue.

Outsourcing much of your work is something that you will need to get used to if you plan on making a substantial amount of money with your blogs. You may want to hire bloggers or writers that can write the content for your blogs, and someone else that can leave comments on other blogs with a link back to yours. Spread out all of the duties on a spread sheet and decide how often each thing needs to be done for each blog. Doing so will help you to be more organized and know what you need to do when, as well as prioritize. Using a spread sheet will also help you to keep track of who is doing what, and keep you from asking more than one person to get one job done.

Blog marketing for a home business is not much different from any other home business. You are going to get out of it what you put into it. If you only put in a couple of hours a week into your blogs, you can not expect to make a full time income with them. However, being consistent and working on your blogs every chance that you get will pay off in the long run. You will also discover that there is no better feeling in the world than owning your own home business, and working for yourself.

Just remember to start small, and work hard. That is all you need to become successful at blog marketing and make the income that you are dreaming of. All of your hard work will pay off if you are persistent and keep it up.

I actually use my blog for 1 specific thing, i.e. to build my list.    http://sensible-mark...g.blogspot.com/

 

I find that it is way too time-consuming for the standard use.  I know there are others who swear by it.

 

We all have to pick and choose how we want to spend our time.

I read through this and would recommend that you publish this as an article somewhere, I know you probably have it published in your blog but I think it would go well in other places where articles are published. It would fit well as a PR in IBOTool Box also,

So, should we be trying more for SEO or using advertising, if our blog is about safelists?

I keep my blog going because it's the cheapest form of advertising that has that much clout.

 

Think about it, the WordPress was free, the domain name is $14 a year and the hosting $1 a month. I do all the work myself, so there is no other expense. So far in September it has had over 4,000 visits, so that's about $.0005 per targeted visitor.

 

The factor that is often overlooked, is it provides me with a certain degree of authority and you can't buy that.

 

EDIT: I forgot to mention in the last two years I made $200 on referral commissions, so that paid for my upgraded membership on Traffic Swirl with more than enough left over to cover the cost of owning my blog.

Any kind of a business, home business in particular, requires that your customers, followers, prospects, whoever, has a place to find you and to keep in touch with what you are doing and what your business is doing. A blog is the easiest place to share your expertixe with your people, facebook included.

 

When you own your own blog, you can post content that other social media sites may shut you down for. You own your content...

I was always taught from the beginning that your blog is your realestate.  That is where you can put the information about yourself to build authority and build followers.

 

As your blog is your real Estate as others have said you can do what ever you want on your blog and it should be there for perpetuity if that is what you want.

 

Your blog can be used as a marketing tool, provide value and get regular readers, or solely as a list builder.  You can use it for reviewing products, or reminding customers of upcoming sales if you are a retail business of some sort.  I saw earlier someone in the meat industry.  You can use a blog as a place to tell people about cuts of meat, the best ways to use them, provide recipes, all sorts of things.

 

Keep a regular review on some of your older posts to make sure that the information is still useful.  You may need to review some to make sure that videos are working properly or anything else you have set up on the posts are directing to places they should.

 

Have a great day

I think blogs can be a useful tool for gaining interest in your business. But, you have to use it correctly. I think that is where most fail.

I have a blog. I think businesses should have blogs especially if you are doing business online It's a great way for people to find you. Plus, you can connect with your audience. Ask questions. People can share your content which will get you more publicity. Blogging is good but you should like to write because if you don't it will be hard for you to be successful with it. If you don't enjoy writing and still need a blog then, you should hire someone to write in it for you.

A Blog is like Fine Wine.

 

It takes a lot of grapes (articles or post) to be good. It takes time (for SEO to bring visitors and finding new subscribers) to be great. It is a true labor of love (you have to love what you do and keep doing it). In the end it is very profitable (You Make Money Blogging).

Don't see why not. Meat processing may not necessarily be the main topic of your blog as you can broaden the topic to include all the related areas in dealing with with meats.

Blog about everything where meat is concerned by thinking this thing out as an ETE (End To End no pun intended) from the growing to the styles of preparation to the consumption of meat plus factors surround health issue pertaining to meat to the broad animal lovers and vegans.

 

You can make a killing with this topic from a blog point of view trust me
