Why Starting A Blog Business Is Better Than Your Job
If you are like most of us who are in the rat race of a job working for the man, then you have most likely wished at times you had a better option for income. You do, It’s an online business and I will explain why starting a blog business is better than the job you do today.
Call it a blog or a website whichever you choose because as far as I am concerned they are essentially the same thing. Yes, I know a traditional blog sometimes does not have all the bells and whistles of a retail website but in reality, they are basically the same as far as opportunities go online.
Work From Home
Probably one of the obvious ways a blog business helps you out is by allowing you to work from home and in most cases at your own pace.
The current norm is, you get up at a time that may be earlier than you want and travel to a place that you work at, I get a bit general here because I am showing you a high-level view.
The routine can get to be a drag and seem redundant when you continually do the same drive every day and spend time away from home performing your job which you may or may not enjoy.
Working at home gives you the freedom to run your life at your desired pace and be present for important family moments and many other benefits. Working at a daily job takes you away for long periods of the day in which you can miss out on important experiences.
The time you spend on your online business is controlled by you, when you can work 4 hrs one day then 2 the next and whatever is needed to make it work depending on the project.
Would you like to work less time and make more than you do today? I know the answer to that. You can make a living from anywhere there is an internet connection. That is Freedom, to live your life on your terms instead of what an employer decides for you by limiting your potential.
Following the trend
The world economy is moving online and many brick and mortar stores are closing or at least feeling the pinch to the bottom line and it is mainly due to the trend of the online marketplace.
Billions of people have access to the internet and the possibilities are endless for income potential. This will continue to grow as more and more people come online.
Getting started online learning the way to make money can put you at the front of the line and allowing you to benefit from the online marketplace.
Cost is a factor as well. You may be a bit hesitant to spend money on an online business, which is understandable since there are so many scams online these days. However, you can for sure find affordable options to provide you with the tools and options and training to get started.
For under $100 a month ( and that is a bit high) you can run an effective online business. Sure it will cost more as your business grows but so does any business.
Here is a link to my Beginners Guide To Affiliate Marketing For 2018, in which I break out my costs for my business I run online today
Think about it, what do you spend today just working at your current job? You probably have a commute of some sort, so there is a cost for gas that at today’s prices is well over $100 a month normally.
There could be other fees and costs associated like any contributions you have deducted from your paycheck or like in my case “union dues” that are very expensive.
Freeing yourself from the rat race allows you to have better control of where your money really goes. If you think about what it costs “you” to simply go to work every day, and then think about what you could save by beginning to control those costs a bit, and if you decide to, put some of it into a new adventure online that can make your quality of life much easier.
Show Me The Money
The best part of a blog or website business can be the fact there is no cap on your income potential. Your job today has a cap, whatever skill you have has a range that employers are willing to pay for that work. Making a living wage today is becoming harder with all the rising costs of inflation.
You can set up and run a full-blown online business for a very affordable cost. The return on investment is what makes it a great option. If you start and stick with it, the sky is the limit on what you can make from it.
There are many people online today making 5 digits a month income wise. I am not going to promise you the same but there is no reason why you cannot make a great living online, regardless of your skill level with websites or blogs. Finding the right place to learn from that does not cost more than you get from it is important.
Here is the place I use for my business, Wealthy Affiliate. The cost is Free to start and the cost of being a premium member is just $49 a month or even less than $30 if you go early. Follow the link above to see what you get in return, the world-class training, keyword tool and everything you need to run your blog business and much more. You will learn multiple ways to make money online by simply following the training
Lose the stress
Once you start to see rewards and income from your online efforts you can remove some stress from your daily routine.
Before you go off and quit your job to work online, know that making a living online to the amount that can replace your current income will take a while, sometimes months or longer to really get it rolling.
So at first, there may be an additional cost to get started but, stick with it and it can make it possible for you to leave your current workplace and start to live an online lifestyle of setting your own schedule and still have time for life’s important moments
The stress on your life by simply following a routine of working every day at a job and being away from home can be removed
