While there are a number of things I have done online and been successful with nothing has been as fulfilling and profitable as authority blogging. Let me be the first to tell you: this will not be easy. If you are looking for a get rich quick scheme then you might as well look for a new way to make it online.
I take what I do very seriously and truly want to help you start your online entrepreneurial adventure. I want to help those that want to help themselves create a nice lifestyle that allows them to work for themselves and not be a slave to the grind.
Authority blogging alone is a big deal, but it’s much bigger than that. Authority blogging is about setting yourself up for success in creating an online business. I’ve said many times on my blog that blogging is not a business but it is a tool that you utilize to build authority, and drive traffic to your business.
Before we get too deep into things I would like to explain conceptually what authority blogging is and how you can create one.
What is authority blogging and how can you create a business from it?
I like to think of authority blogging as becoming the powerhouse or leader in a specific niche with your blog. When someone is searching for information related to your niche you would be the go to person for that information.
To establish authority you don’t have to be the most knowledgeable but you do need to be the most helpful. You will be the provider of the information readers are looking for in your niche.
Basically, what I’m saying is, you don’t need to be an expert in your niche to start an authority blog. That will come with time as you build your blog. You do however, need to know what topics to cover, what people are looking for, and provide them that information in an extremely helpful way.
When I started my first authority blog I was certainly not the go to expert in my niche. I spent a lot of time on forums and other places where people in my niche were, to see what kind of questions they wanted answered.
I then attacked those questions on my blog and researched like crazy to find the answers they were searching for. This quickly led me to becoming an authority in my niche and I was able to quickly gain the trust of my audience. This led to more traffic day by day.
To often people put a stop to the process as they fear that they’re not an expert or are not the authority to write about a specific topic. I challenge you to overcome this fear and realize that in time you will become the expert. With proper research you don’t even need to be the expert.
The more research you do and the more things you learn, the more you will know about your topic. This will allow you to help more people as your blog grows. You don’t have to be smarter than everyone in your niche you just have to know more than your audience and help them with the questions they seek answers to.
Why Authority blogging?
Why is authority blogging one of my main choices to create an online business?
I have found success in many online adventures but I have truly found authority blogging to be the most sustainable, profitable, and the most enjoyable way to make money online.
I have created niche sites, sold affiliate offers, generated leads, used pay-per-click traffic, and many other tactics to make money online. All of those methods are based on a lot of variables. Things rapidly change, things that used to work don’t work, new things start to work that didn’t before, and many other unpredictable factors in all of those styles of online business.
There is one thing that has remained constant since I started in Internet marketing. My authority blogs make me money every single month.
Blogs that I truly put a lot of time in and invested myself in are giving me a constant stream of income every single month. Those affiliate offers that I was promoting are all gone. Lead gen offers? No, those are gone to. Are you starting to see my point.
Authority blogging is sustainable. If you invest your time and effort into an authority blog you can build a quality online business that will make you money every single month. That is what it is all about. Getting rewards for your efforts online is one of the greatest things you can achieve as an Internet marketer.
I have found that creating authority blogs has been both financially rewarding and in life in general. Daily I am helping people just like you and me learn things that they did not previously know about or I teach them how to get better at something they love. That is truly rewarding and I am making money along the way.
If you are interested in building a solid online business give authority blogging a shot.
