Blogger? OR Online Business Owner? Does It Matter

Posted by in My Life

Blogger or Online Business Owner?

Today I want to talk about whether I am a Blogger or a Internet Marketer.

As I see it, I am a little bit of everything and SO SHOULD YOU!

Yes I am a Blogger sharing tips, how to’s and info relating to EVERYTHING to do with blogging, social marketing, Internet marketing, email marketing…you get the idea.

Now does the fact that I promote and help people join and succeed in my programs make me a BAD blogger?

Does it mean I am any less helpful or supportive of anyone that comes to my blog looking for JUST some information?

The Answer Is…HELL NO!

I am here to share information with anyone that wants that information… 2 days ago I spent 50 min on the phone with a guy that reached out to me on Twitter.. He had some questions about his blog and how I could help.

Did he pay me for my time?  NO

Did I push my programs on him?  NO

Did I ask for anything in return?  NO

I helped him because he asked, and because I didn’t really have anyone to go to when I got started so I know how hard it can be to just get some simple answers from a HUMAN  :)

Being a blogger helps my online businesses and makes me a better blogger!

I am here to help people make money online, whether that be working with me one on one in my programs OR that be by you getting helpful FREE information on my blog!

Hell when your in the Internet Marketing arena helping people make money online, you wear many hats…

Blogger – I share information on how to make money online with Everyone  that visits my site, and a central place to keep my team members locked in and learning and growing.

Online Business Owner –  I’m here to help people make money online the best, safest, fastest, honest way I know how.

Motivator – Sometimes people don’t see what you see, so you need to keep them focused on the big picture.

Friend – When you work close to people and get to know their WHY and their Needs as to why they need extra money, you become their friend, sometimes that’s all they need to go the distance.

Enemy – Yes sometimes you have to be the bad guy and tell people what they don’t want to hear..like when Joe Blow tells me I lied to him and he’s making no money.. and I find out it’s because he either isn’t following my advice or he is spending less then 2 hrs a week on HIS business..lol

So you need to remove all BS and be straight with them, they either wimp out and quit or they finally Get It and get to work and Thank U in the end.

As a blogger you need to think more about marketing, to make money as a blogger, you need to do more then JUST write great content.

    John,

    I am the same way, I am running my site as a business but I am also a blogger. I have helped out others and giving advice whenever I can. I enjoy helping others. I have been known to work on minor issues with others for nothing in return. By that, I mean doing something like what you did as an example. I do not do that often, but when I do it I try and give back to the community. I have been helped out several times and if I can't help those that have helped me, I try and give back to others.

    You have to give a little to get a lot back.

    Good stuff Paul.
    I'm a strong advocate of learn while teaching others so this is something I can relate to. And what makes it fun is I enjoy it too. Frankly, I'm always quite flattered when people ask my opinion about something related to blogging or SEO, it means they believe in you. Yes, you have to believe in yourself, but there's nothing like getting further confirmation from people out of nowhere.

    Tola, TY for the comment. I am the same way, when someone comes to me for help, let's me know the work I have done is paying off and they see me as someone that can help and be trusted.. It's a great feeling.
