The worst mistake newcomers to the blogging world make is not treating it as a real business. At the end of the day, you’ll only ever get out what you put in!
If you are looking to avoid common blogging mistakes then this is the article for you. Start off on the right foot and give yourself the best chance of reaching the giddy heights of internet success…
Start Blogging Business
A few weeks ago a fellow entrepreneur pointed out to me how many blogs get started up on a daily basis. I forget the exact number but it was quite an impressive amount.
Our conversation evolved and we got to the point where we were putting in guestimates ( man I hate that word! ) on how many of these blogs would become floating blogs.
By ‘floating blogs’ we mean blogs that were started up and then left to rot for years in the internet wilderness. We came to the conclusion that most of these blogs would end up this way.
You see, people don’t realize what they can achieve with a little hard work and dedication. They master a bit of keyword research, they publish about 10 quality posts and then they give up when they see low results.
Many outsiders look upon blog owners as nothing more than geeks fulfilling a hobby addiction. Unfortunately this view seems to seep it’s way into new blogger’s thought processes.
Just because you don’t have to travel into a city office every day and wear a three piece suit doesn’t mean your not a businessman ( or businesswoman ).
This misconception causes many profit bloggers to treat their online business as nothing more than a pastime. A pastime does not really involve that much planning so the outcome is going to be very thin ( aka no money! ).
A business plan is extremely important in ANY sort of business – without it you are making your journey blindfolded…
I’m sure you’ve come across numerous eBooks and courses online that try and persuade you that a few hours work a day is all you need to succeed.
You get up in your boxer shorts, make a quick coffee, sit down in front of the laptop and put in a few hours work.
After this you might as well hit the golf course because the money is apparently going to look after itself right?
When have you ever heard about a successful business being this easy – it doesn’t exist, does it?
Commitment is key – so plan to use plenty of it!
Many newcomers will still be holding down a full time job when starting up an online business.
This means that you must plan out the time needed to get your online venture up and running. You must also try your hardest to stick to this plan.
Rome wasn’t built in a day – internet businesses aren’t either!
