What is blogging? is a questions I had I always wondered and how does blogging work when you have your own blog?

Since I teamed up with ClickDo, it was never easier to understand the whole strategy. And I can tell you that anybody learn the ways to earn money online, blogging. But it needs a lot of effort and time put into it. In the beginning, because later on basically it’s a money making machine.

What do you need to earn money online?

It will take some time and many blogs to write until you build authority on the web. But if you are determined to make it happen and start making money from your bedroom, then it will happen. You need to be persistent, patient and hard working in all areas. Not only writing but also advertising and presenting. I’ll give you two examples of blogs. One is my own blog which I’m starting now and I’m on my way to really crush it. And the second one is a UK Business Blog which is running so good this year. I’m publishing new blogs on my website every single day, of course, they have to be related to my niche, not having cooking recipes in it.

Start a blog and write daily

My niche is media and digital marketing. I write about videography, photography, marketing, social media, SEO but with the biggest focus on creatives of all kinds. Sometimes I even write about other people or companies, to make it more interesting for the reader. It doesn’t always have to be only about me. I also plan to interview a few entrepreneurs, photographers and business people for my blogs which breaths another fresh air into it. There are many topics to write about and many ways to get in touch with new people from your industry. And your blog will make all these things easier.

Step by step towards making money

Create a blog section on your website and start posting daily. If you have more time, you can post multiple times of the day. Write a blog about current topics, about what you’ve learned recently or what you have done for your clients and so on. You can write longer or shorter blogs but the longer the better, from an SEO perspective. Also learn how to optimize a blog for Google, here is a great article on How to write SEO friendly blog titles for the blog posts to boost ranks.

Why my blog needs authority?

Build the general authority on the web, create courses and build your online profiles. Once you get the authority, you can start earning money. Keep reading and also watch this video on building authority online.

Once you have enough blogs, start offering your blog for guest posting. So I’m a videographer and you can see my website at https://www.nicoleven.com/ and my plan is to offer my blog section to other videographers to post their articles about videography. And I will charge for it of course, because I built a blog which has authority and a good reach in the niche.

How do you turn your blog into a money making machine?

Why would they pay? They can place links to their sites and services on this blog, so it is advertising for them as well as good SEO. Their name will be seen by my audience as well which is exactly the audience they want. Videographers and people who want videography. For me it’s a win too, I get the money and they share my blog because they published their articles on it. Meaning – I get even more authority online. And of course more content to my website without actually doing anything anymore.

So once you build a blog with authority, your work is done more or less, it can run by itself. However, to get there, it takes a lot of time and effort. Give yourself the challenge to write a blog every single day for 30 days like Neil Franklin. If you can do it, then you’re all set up!

Successful blogs that make money

A good example of turning your blog into a good profit is UK Business Blog which is a role model of a successful guest post and blogging service. It generates money daily either with placing links on the existing articles or publishing new ones. It ranks #1 on Google and the content is business relevant and focused on the UK market. Companies publish their business stories with nice long articles, linking to their sites and they promote themselves this way as well as they get a backlink to their site for the SEO purposes.

How to promote my blog?

You can promote your blog in many ways but the best way is to make videos and publish it on all of social media. Create a video where you explain what is your blog about, what are the benefits of posting on your blog, how does it work to get published. And then circulate it on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube. You might even create campaigns but the main thing is to make multiple different videos and have it everywhere. If you don’t have much time, ClickDo Media can help you with your video production.

You don’t have to create social media profiles for your blog from the beginning, it will be much easier to promote it on your existing accounts from the start. Post Instagram and Facebook stories showing your blog, talking about it. Every single day put some video out there and explain to business owners why they should publish their business stories on your blog.

It’s your time to make money online

So these are some tips on how to make money from your blog. Anybody can do it. You can pick the topic that you like the most, the topic that you’re passionate about and want to write about it every day. Remember to write daily, once article per day at least and make it very SEO friendly too. Promote your blog with a nice video and do some email marketing, but only after you really grow it with your articles and have some good visitor reach daily.

Grow your business online with videos in 2019

If you want to grow your business online, build a strong brand and get more customers, you need to make and post videos on your social media channels and website.
Read this article and pay attention to it. I’ll uncover the most important video statistics, facts, myths and some tips for you.

Cisco has projected that more than 80% of all Internet traffic will be video by 2021. Hurry up or else you’ll find yourself way behind your competitors.

Do you know the number one website on the Internet all the users go to? Yes, it’s Google. And do you know the second one? Youtube. When you cook and look for the recipe. How many of your kids watch fairy tales on Youtube every day? If you want to buy an iPhone, you go on Youtube. When you need some motivation for your day – you go on Youtube. The list goes on.

You don’t have a Youtube channel? WHY?


5 billion videos are watched on Youtube every single day. Only “How-to” searches on YouTube are growing 70% year over year. (Search Engine Island)

Youtube does not only gives you free attention to your videos, but it also helps SEO to get the backlinks to your website. Let me ask you something because you are also a consumer of videos on a daily basis. Would you rather read 5 pages long pdf file or watch a 1-minute video? Do you trust a customer review when you actually see and hear a person or when you just read the text?

According to Forbes, 90% of customers are saying video helps them make buying decisions.

When we say ‘a picture speaks a thousand words’, it’s double for a video [at least]. If you own a small business or you’re an entrepreneur, you can get to people easier than ever. Well you already know that, but do you actually take advantage of it? Posting photos are not enough anymore.  

Viewers retain 95% of a message after watching it in a video, compared to 10% when reading it in the text. (Wirebuzz)

The video is everywhere, and the point is that people – your potential customers are used to seeing video everywhere. So when they see your website or social media, it is weird to them that you don’t have a landing page video, or that you only post pictures and text.

76% of businesses reported an increase in traffic due to video. (Wyzowl)

You’ve got your customers, maybe not millions but they buy your products/services from you so show them what you do and how you do it. Explain, talk to them. Post. Every business should have an introduction and or promotional video about who they are, what they do. Make yourself more approachable and actually start a relationship with them by making a connection with them through video.

Want to hire someone?

A creative recruitment video will get more attention and you can target it precisely on Facebook, so only the group of people with the age/location/qualifications that you look for is going to see it. Great news for HR! You will get ‘rid off’ unqualified people. It will save you time and trouble.

Of course, you want more clients! Product videos are the most popular videos on the Internet, hand in hand with demo and explainer videos. People are more likely to buy the product online when they can actually see it and ‘test’ it through someone else’s experience.

It happened to me few times that business owners always agreed with me that video is very important and maybe the only medium in the future. There’s no advertising without a video. The content is more engaging etc.. However, did all of them actually start making videos for their business? No. So what is stopping them?

Maybe they think if it costs thousands of pounds and they can’t afford it. There are two things wrong with this. The first one is that nowadays, there are so many video agencies and freelancers, that are more and more skilled. So if you find the right people to work with, you can afford it, trust me. Secondly, you don’t only need a video maker but also a video expert first of all. Someone who gets to know your business and tells you exactly what kind of video will help your business the most. On every platform, you’re using.

This is not a game of one amazing video

…that will sell you thousands of products for 10 years. You need to post videos every day and you have to do it yourself as well. Put your face out there, talk about your brand, show you’re passionate about it. People are attracted by other people passion.

You have to show everyone your passion and you have to do it through your videos, stories on Facebook and Instagram. Show them your satisfied customers, your production or how your service looks like. Do you say you don’t look on camera, or it is embarrassing for you to do it? You don’t like your voice? Etc…. You can watch my video, where I give you some tips to overcome it and become good at it.

Everybody feels the same, also some of the most successful actors/actresses are feeling uncomfortable to see themselves in the movies. This is no excuse for you if you’re a business owner or someone building your brand. This is the game of the 21st century, this is the game of social media. You have to put your face out there if you want to succeed. In anything.

A great example of how to break social media is Will Smith. I know, I know, he’s famous and all. But he was always social media shy AND he’s 50 years old, so there really is no excuse for you anymore, no matter who you are.

Will Smith created his Instagram in 2017, currently, he’s got 27,5M followers and 90% of his posts are videos. Don’t think it’s easy for him to get himself millions of followers because he’s famous. Social media is current, people follow people who are current. So he got himself a Youtube channel to support it as well and completely broke down the social media.

If you want to start making videos and taking advantage of this day and age, which our grandparents could only dream of, when they started their business, here’s what you can do:

Do it yourself

Basically, all you need is a smartphone, you can film your products, you can do some vlogs and just put it online the way it is. This is the easiest and cheapest way, it’s very good to start. But then you have to step up your game because the video content on social media is getting better and it’s looking better. The quality of videos, especially the right editing to create a catchy video that keeps the viewer engaged and interested is very important.

Hire a videographer/video editor

You can hire someone who will edit the videos that you shot throughout the day or of course they will come and film you themselves. But as I mentioned before, it’s important for you to post every day. So you do the work as well. We can edit your videos, we can make you explainer videos, GIFs, photo collage. Anything that pumps up your social media and catches the attention of your buyers.

Don’t think that you need a huge budget for one video. Video production is not cheap but you can try to cut some costs, with for example using your employees or yourself as an actor. Or if you locate the shoot in your office/company, you will save money on renting office space.

Either way, don’t wait anymore and start now. Not tomorrow or next week. Start today. Get in touch with ClickDo, we’re excited to help you with your videos. Let’s create something great together and step up your game!
