Turn your Blogging hobby into Money

Many bloggers saying that yes, with a little hard work and dedication you can make money blogging. But

You won’t make any money blogging.

What you can do, if you’d like to turn blogging into a career or Turn Blog into Business, is make money using your blog. To many that might seem like the same thing. Is there really a difference between making money blogging, and making money using a blog?


Your blog into Money

When you put a post up on your blog, you are not engaging in a direct business transaction. No one pays you to publish that post. People might find it, read it, and comment on it, but you’re still not getting paid for the post itself.

From a business perspective, your blog posts are marketing apparatus. They are engines that drive people to your blog. Done well, they will attract a reader’s attention. That’s no small feat, either. Gaining attention is one of the two pillars of marketing.

What you do with that attention will determine the future of your blog. Uncultured, the attention will serve to slowly grow your traffic, with your readers spreading the word. While that’s not a poor goal, it’s not what will lead you to profitable lands. In order to make your blog into a small business, you have to cultivate that attention.

How do Blogging hobby make into money?

By selling products or services. This can be in a direct way, or an indirect way.

Unfortunately, too many bloggers go for the indirect route. It’s the easy path, and so many walk it without thinking about alternatives. Those blogs will rarely, if ever, turn into viable businesses.

When you place CPM advertisements on your blog you are not making money directly. Advertisers are paying you not for your effort, but by the number of readers who see their ads. Worst of all, when you work with an ad network you get only a slice of that income, typically less than half. The indirect monetization method just doesn’t pay.

In order to truly transform your blog into a small business you have to sell something. Whether that’s through affiliate marketing, selling your own products, or other monetization methods, having a clear idea of what you’re selling will allow you to take that next step. The more direct the sale, the greater the profit for you, the blogger.
