How to Make Money With Blogging for Your Business
Blogging for your business is FREE advertising. Not only is it putting you into a position of authority but you are building your content library. This is content that can be used on social media to grow your email list and your social media followers=clients and customers!
The question that I get asked the most about blogging is, can I really earn money blogging?
But you need to write good content that provides a solution to your ideal client’s problems. And how do you find out what these problems are? JUST ASK! Send an email to your list and ask for their feedback on what their biggest challenges are. Post a question on your facebook page.
Then use this data that you receive to create your blog posts.

If you don’t already know who your ideal client is, then you need to drill down and find out. Who will you be writing for? Who is your audience? Are they male/female? How old are they? Where do they live? What do they do in their spare time? We have developed a worksheet that you can grab here to help you identify your ideal client.
