Earning Money from Blogs- Are You a Blogger or an Internet Marketer?

Before even thinking on earning money from blogs, you should answer to this question:

Are you a blogger or an Internet marketer?

Maybe you have a blog and you are looking for information on earning money from blogs, or you just wondering why is your blog not lucrative, or you are thinking on earning money on Internet and intending on building a blog to so - whatever...

Well, in this article I intend to unveil one of the main reasons why bloggers are not earning money from blogs.

Let´s talk about it then:

In fact, the number one reason why bloggers don´t earn money on Internet is because they are bloggers and not Internet marketers. Believe me, anyone who is earning money from blogs is technically not a blogger, but an Internet marketer that happens to blog.

Can you see the difference between the two concepts?

Most bloggers know how to blog. However, when it comes to earning money from blogs, just a few bloggers know to market their blogs. Being so, they end up with a blog that is only read by family members and close friends. Not that there is anything wrong with blogging to family and friends, but if the idea is to be earning money from blogs, that won´t definitely work.

My point is that if one wants to be earning money from blogs, he (or she) has to have other people reading it. You can have the best blog out there, but if nobody reads it you will not be earning money from it. If your goal is to be earning money from blogs, then you have got to get, and use, marketing skills.

When I happen to think on some bloggers that beleive that they should be earning money from blogs just by having one up and running, I always remember that movie with Kevin Costner playing the main character, called "Field of Dreams".

Kevin (I don´t remember the name of the character), an ex-baseball player and big fan of the game, kept earing a voice telling him "If you build it, they will come" ... So, at some point, he went on building a baseball field on his cornfield and already dead baseball legendary players started to appear in the field.

Well, it seams to me that millions of people every week or so, are trying to "build it", because they believe that it is all it takes to start earning money from blogs. They go and build a fancy blog, they add content to it everyday and wonder why there aren´t visitors coming.

The conclusion is that building a blog and adding content to it is not at all enough, for the purpose of earning money from blogs. You have to promote it. You have to call out the crowds.

"Very well said!" I ear you saying, "It is easy to be said, but what about doing it?" "How could I know how to get my blog out there?"

There are plenty of places where you can get that kind of information. Of course, you must be very careful where you get it from, because there are also many people willing to scam and rip you at the very first opportunity they have.

I faced the same problem myself. but fortunately I got lucky because someone told me about a place where I could go and have the best education there is on Internet. I went there and became a member of a huge community that helped and taught me every single secret about earning money from blogs. Among them I always feel safe and well oriented. It is in fact not as hard as it can look like at the begining. You just have to get comfortable with some marketing strategies.

I hope you enjoyed the reading and that you fully understand now, the real difference between a blogger and an Internet marketer who happens to blog. By understanding this you have found the right direction towards your goal of earning money from blogs.

I would like to ear about you and your impressions on this article, so please feel free to drop a comment.

Good Article!

Looking forward to Part 2 or your new article .......interesting story.

It would be nice if you added some money making techniques to "this" article. I read through but I did not find anything that could get me started. If I was interested in making money from blogs, I would want to have at least one specific strategy that would help me to do so. For example. 1 - Using keywords 2 - Using social networking 3 - How to market my blog site (flyers, bus cards?) 4 - SEO? Some details on one of those would definitely spark my interest in wanting to hear more. Good luck Dale

I agree with you Dale. There could be a little more meat within the content, as a reader there are a lot of questions that are left to the imagination. Maybe you could elaborate on this article via an update or future articles. Just a thought.

  about 1 decade ago

Hey, You are both right. I will write other articles mentioning some practical aspects on the matter. Anyway, there are two links on the article which link to my recent blog where I suggest some strategies on how to earn money on the Internet. Thank you for your comments. I hope you read my next article, which I'll be publishing tomorrow.
