When you hear the word ‘blogging’ mentioned, what comes to mind? Some people have images of a teenager blogging about random school yard gossip. Perhaps you think of someone just like Heather Armstrong, the woman who supports her family by blogging about her life and her children. Do you think about some random guy with no life who spends all day blogging about a computer game he’s addicted to? Despite these images, blogging could be the tool that could create a successful internet marketing business for you. Blogs can create very healthy revenues. As an internet marketer, there are plenty of reasons to add blogging to your list of tools. Here are some major benefits blogging can bring you.

Blogging can be a rush! Blogging is the best way to share information or news with your readers; you set the mood and the relationship to fit your own personality. Blogging isn’t restricted to the same rules that traditional sites are so you can customize in a way that makes your site fun and giving your visitors a reason to return in the future. Prefer to write long? – winded posts or reviews, then be my guess. If you hate writing then you don’t have to share many of your thoughts. The way you do things is your business. Remember, that blogging is very customizable. You now have the means of doing business and having fun all at the same time; thank to blogging.

Once your popularity increases, you could find that people will pay you to write blog posts about their products or services. This isn’t the same thing as a sponsored post, where you’re only allocating two lines at either the top or the bottom of a blog post. This could mean an advertiser will pay you to write a post on a certain topic, and include a link to a product they want to promote. You can charge good money for posts such as these. There are bloggers who charge more than $100 per post. You will need to be clear on your post that it was paid for by an advertiser, or you may find you’ll be in trouble with the legal authorities. Still though, it’s a great way to earn extra money.

Don’t reduce blogging as only a way to sale products; it is also an effective way to make business contacts, also. There are lots of blog directories and groups that you can submit your blog to. As people read and comment on your site, you can read and comment on theirs. If you don’t do anything else; take the time to share valuable information on other blogs, you will instantly be seen as an authority, you will get new readers for your own blog, but most importantly you will be opening the door to new relationships. This is one of the ways to meet your future super-affiliates and joint venture partners. Having others promote your product’s to their audience has to be the most effective way to make big money on the internet.

With so many diverse reasons that blogs can help you grow your business, it’s often hard to know which benefit you prefer most. There are many more reasons for blogging than against blogging. What’s stopping you? Start building your blog right now and you could be rewarded with sales as early as tonight.
