Blog Marketing and Home Businesses

Marketing a blog means to promote it so that others, who have similar interests, 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.

Having a home business by blog marketing means that you would 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. For myself, I have several blogs:

  • This one, addressing Internet Marketing (and I think it is too broad…);
  • DVD Unlocker – specifically addressing bypassing region coding on DVD Players;
  • Entertainment – to address online movies and music and gaming;
  • Remove Spyware – discussing protecting your PC from viruses, trojans and the like.

Why? Because readers that read your blog and visit my blog on Internet Marketing aren’t generally interested in bypassing region codes on DVD Players, and vice versa.

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.

Blog marketing for a home business is basically the same as 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. All of your hard work will pay off if you are persistent and keep it up.

  1. May I offer you a good piece of advice now that you discuss matters in blogging. How about reviewing the title of your blog?

    Do you feel you target the right audience by such a broad title?

    Think, think twice and think again is my personal gift to everyone that comes to me and asks why they perform poorly in search engines and why they don’t attract more REGULAR readers.

    “Unlocking Keys to Internet Marketing” or “Find Around in Internet Marketing”

    Maybe even: “Untold Mysteries in Internet Marketing”

    Have I gotten you on the right track? :-)

  2. Why not comment the comments you get instead of simply deleting them?

    Your choice. I wanted to help, and my comments were well-intentioned. Good luck.

    Carpe diem. :-)

  3. I don’t delete comments unless they are obviously spam comments. My blog is set up to place comments with more than 2 links in them in moderation – to stop spamming.

    I assume you’re talking about you’re other comment from this morning – I’ve approved it for publishing.

  4. Hi Henrik, I have no idea why your original comment was place in moderation, but it was.

    Regarding your original comment, you are quite right – the name isn’t appropriate. I’ve already changed it once and will do so again. I just need to finalise my keyword research to determine the words that I need to hit in the Search Engines.

    Thanks for the feedback, please keep it coming.

  5. Will do. Thanks for explaining. :-)
