Bloggers are constantly flooding the blogsphere these days and the amount of bloggers looking to earn an income with their blog seems to have skyrocketed. Now, I’m not saying that looking to earn an income online is a bad thing it’s just that it seems that everyone and their mom is looking to “make money online” blogging.
Outsourcing Blog Writing
Anyways, whether you are trying to earn an income or simply looking to share your thoughts and get a response from an audience, NEVER, EVER, EVER SAY you “CAN’T” do something like write blog posts or socialize with your audience! Although I know a number of high income earners online that outsource their writing, most of them do so because they have earned their right to share their blog with other interested parties looking to write about a specific topic that relates to their site. Just yesterday I had a guy ask if he would need to write articles on his site after me telling him that marketing is a big part of gaining an audience and possibly earning from his blog. Yes! It is important to continually write great and awesome content for your site! If you don’t have a passion for blogging or writing about a niche, you’re SOL, that’s the end of it.
Just started and your outsourcing blog writing already?
If you’ve just started blogging and are getting tired of blogging then you’re kind of in the wrong business don’t you think? Outsourcing blog writing to others may not be as great an idea as you might think. Someone else out there may not have the same amount of passion as you do about a subject and may not do your blog justice. If you are a real estate agent, make sure and communicate with the people you plan to do business with and get to know more about them too! Granted, I know some very successful real estate agents who have others blog for them but that’s only because they’ve outgrown the writing and are doing great things for their business elsewhere.
Outsourcing blog writing is bad business; A Realtors Thoughts.
Sometimes. A few days ago I met a real estate agent who posted some very cool internet marketing information on her blog and I asked her if she did all the writing for her blog herself. She told me that it would be ridiculous not to write your own content and be socially connected to the audience you are writing for. She explained that lots of realtors have other people engage potential clients and then when the agent meets the client, they get a different feel out of the agent they thought they had gotten to know online. Well, the same goes for blogging when you’re looking to earn an income from your blog, let people get to know you and build a community around your niche!
Whether you’re a big player or a small time blog writer, nothing beats having a real person behind each blog post to communicate with. I’ve run into plenty of blogs that have crappy content that is not understandable! Outsourcing blog writing is really just plain ol’ dumb in some cases. Anyone who is anyone knows that content is KING on the internet and with internet marketing! However, if you have no choice but to get someone else to write for your blog because of time or something similar, PLEASE make sure it’s someone who can write well and has an understanding of the English language! I can’t stress enough how important this is to either building a list, getting more targeted traffic or community building around your niche.
