Blogging is hugely popular, and bloggers are slowly realising that it often can also be a good business. By June 2008, Technorati had indexed over 112.8 millions blogs since their 2002 debuts. By the end of 2009, the number was 133 million and still growing. Blogging started as a hobby for many, but is now a good source of income. However, this book makes it clear that you won't achieve success overnight. The sheer number of blogs means huge competition to present content to readers. But the business model is what many are looking for.
“The recession has been hard on many people,” the author says. “Blogging can provide a secondary income for those who need it. It can even become a full-time job and earn you a decent wage if you work hard enough. It is a good option for many would-be entrepreneurs. A blogging business has low starting up and running costs, and can be fitted around another job if needed.”
“But don't listen to anyone who says you can become rich with a blog in the space of a few month, without doing any work. Like any other venture, blogging requires careful research and planning, investments in terms of money and time, and hard work, in order to become a successful business. Blogging for Profits arms you with tools and techniques to help you learning and growing your business.”
Blogging for Profits presents the readers with ways to quickly research and plan their business, data to help their market research efforts, tools and techniques to create and promote content readers are looking for, and develop their business further as and when they find themselves in that position. Although written for a UK audience, this book can be useful to online entrepreneurs worldwide.
