We live in a crazy world today with one of the worst economies ever seen, and there is instability everywhere no matter what your profession is. It has gotten so bad that we can’t rely on our chosen job or career to be there through retirement and it has become a necessity for almost everyone to try and create more than one stream of income. Internet marketing is a great way to bring in extra money, but certain methods such as blogging do work better than others.
Blogging works well because it generates interest and readership in addition to giving the search engines something to crawl and rank. The words that we write include search terms that are rated according to the relevancy of queries typed in by people looking for information, and the higher percentage or “density”, of search terms is rated as more relevant.
People blog or write on any variety of subjects, and it is usually what they know best that they are better at blogging about. Something that you are passionate about and knowledgeable on will bring out the best in your writing abilities and get others excited about reading and finding out more about you. I personally have any number of incredibly interested subjects that I can blog about, and I’m sure there are many more that I can’t think about at the moment. Any particular subject has hundreds of sub-categories that can be broken down even more for even many more possible blogging subjects!
For example, jet skiing is one of my hobbies and a very interesting area for me to write about. I can write about the joys of riding a Sea Doo jet ski, but I can also write about jet ski insurance, trailering a jet ski or boat, boating laws on lakes and rivers, jet ski covers, proper care and maintenance of jet skis, taking a family out on the water, top speed, various makes and models, lake toys that are popular, specific trips that you have taken with it, trips you are planning, and the like! Those are just the different subjects that I could think of right off the top of my head, and with more thought and time I’m sure I could come up with hundreds more!
The point is that everyone is knowledgeable about something, and they have had experiences and interests that others would love to hear about. I had a personal experience myself when I was young where I was certain that I had seen Bigfoot! A story like that really piques the attention of most people, and the more interesting you are the more they want to know what makes you tick. They will click on links in your bio to see what else you are into, or they might even call you or email you for more information.
Blogging and internet marketing can help you to achieve your goals of being financially secure and independent, as long as you place enough effort and work into what you are doing. Treat this like you would your job and work diligently and efficiently and with a burning desire to achieve your dreams and you WILL get them! Remember, no one but you has authority over your goals and dreams, and with your permission, you WILL succeed! Go for it!
