How To Build A Successful Online Brand With Blogging and Earn Money



This was actually meant to be a post on Facebook but I decided to share it with you. Yes you, the one reading this post right now. 😉
How To Build A Successful Online Brand With Blogging and Earn Money 1

These days most people want to become a blogger just because they need quick cash but blogging is not a get rich quick job.

You need to understand what you are blogging about. What motivates you?

The way bloggers with a branded blog run their blogs is quite different from the non-branded blogger.

Blogging has given me a chance to work with a couple of companies and organizations. Some transactions failed, while some were successful.

I worked with Obi Worldphones (I was contacted by a PR company, Invicta Africa) and everything went well while a deal I had with Romoss Electronics, China broke down because the distributor in Nigeria insisted that I come to Lagos but I couldn’t go to Lagos simply because of a review. I felt bad but it’s a stepping stone to get to where I want. I think you ought to see blogging as a way to start off your brand. You should be a voice that reader’s can trust. Always be ready to accept corrections. It’s okay to be a Maverick or a Dissenter once in a while, you can even play the Devil’s advocate, it’s fun but don’t go off limits.

You may be scared that you won’t get enough people to see your content but with strategic marketing, you can boost a new blog from 0 to 100 in a couple of weeks. The question is. Are you ready to invest your time and money?

You need to be ready to invest your time and money strategically. Once you have planned out what your brand is going to be about you can start off.

Here’s a tip on how to build your brand while earning from affiliate marketing.

Let’s say you blog about fashion products and your Google AdSense isn’t really converting, take the bull by the horn. Join an affiliate program, select the best products, write a catchy headline with an attractive photo and promote the product on Facebook with your link. You’d be surprised to see how much you’d make compared to when you leave the link on your blog. Using Facebook algorithms, ads displayed are usually based on the person’s interests so your ad gets displayed to people who are really interested in it.

Facebook may be a social network but it’s not a non-profit organization, the users are it’s products and they’re offering them to you on an affordable platter. The more you spend the more people get to see your ad. You can try out the same strategy on Instagram, Twitter, Reddit and other social networks. Don’t just rush into an advertising campaign. Test the advertisements with a low budget, if the turnover is okay you can increase your budget..

If you spend $5 on a campaign and you earn $15-$20 that’s a good result.💰💰

You could try increasing your budget and see if it makes more money but if you don’t get back the money you spent, it’s totally unprofitable for you.

On the long run people will inadvertently get to trust your blog and it will boost your social media following as well thus building a successful online brand for you. Also try to reach out to other brands and see if you can get to partner with them. If it works out, it’s a win-win situation. You earn from the other brand and they get something from you in return as well. At the end everyone is happy. If you’re turned down, don’t feel dejected, there are over a thousand ways to get something done.

iTunes is going to be shut down officially 9

After almost two decades of service, Apple is reportedly dumping iTunes.

It first started off as rumors, but now it is going to be made official at WWDC in just a few hours.

iTunes is going to be shut down officially 10

Before this, you might have noticed that the Instagram and Facebook page of iTunes has had a slight change.

iTunes is going to be shut down officially 12

Posts on both pages has been entirely deleted – Apple’s move at shifting away from iTunes links, I guess.

Before this, there has been separate apps for music on its mobile devices, however, not available for Mac OS.

Relating to that, there is supposedly going to be an announcement for three separate apps for its music, TV and podcasts, and hopefully they’ll also be available for Mac Books.

We’ll just keep our fingers crossed for this and other big announcements at WWDC.

Google Stadia – The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? – Reader Opinion



Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 13

A few weeks ago, Google announced the release of Google Stadia a new state of the art gaming platform that would change gaming as we know it apparently.

Google Stadia

This has been met with a lot of skepticism in the gaming community if this is going to actually work but I believe Stadia has what it takes to change the whole console gaming model that we have been used to for years, However, it would take some time to actually give Microsoft and Sony a run for their money.

Google Stadia Controller

Google Stadia actually got me thinking Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox would have a strong problem to contend with when it fully launches this year. Google Stadia’s cross-platform play is something I’m looking forward to, so you can play hardware intensive games on a system or phone with low specs.

Imagine playing PUBG or FIFA on a 1GB RAM Phone or Laptop and it runs without any lagging or glitches. So it’s practically goodbye to having to get a new system to play some games if they are available on Stadia.

I decided to put out this question to you guys on facebook and I was pretty impressed with the replies I got.

Google Stadia Reader Opinion

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 14

Apeh Ikechukwu said – Even if it will be the beginning of the end for PlayStation 4 and Xbox, it will take time A very long time for it to gain popularity and to be accepted by all.
What if it becomes more expensive? That you have to pay huge to access it?

George Oz said – I don’t think to gain popularity is a problem, the announcement alone gathered enough publicity online. And yes it is definitely the end for others Like x-Box and co…Sometimes let’s learn to think Outside the Box.

Osazeme Usen said – Stadia will take quite a long while to catch on. Internet speed is still an issue in most nations of the world. In the long run, stadia will eventually be cheaper than owning a console and purchasing games but that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Olusola Glory Olamide said – Before we throw those Xboxes, PlayStations, Nintendo Switches and stuffs to the bin of history we have questions to answer.
Will most gamers’ broadband connections be fast enough to make a streaming service of that proposition? Will developers all come on board? And is Google the right company to trust with the future of the games industry? Though we’ve got Apple on board and Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon are also in the launch plus Sony Nintendo and others won’t stay put.

ューセッ州 小岩 マサチ said – I feel we will have to pay for most of the games…and Nigeria’s 4g speed is about 2mb/s.

Samuel Jarvis Adeyemi said -Stadia is a good innovation from Google and I think it’s great since gaming could be done on a device, they said it would be super fast even cheating the speed of light in 4k Res without a glitch.
Anyways Google is the software boss, I think they can do it.

I hope Xbox and PS4 meet up but cloud gaming is not really their stuff. And Google has the resources.

Swiss Alex said – well mainly I would say Google Stadia is a welcome development but Xbox and the ps4 has to upgrade too

Google Stadia Reader Opinion – Join The Conversation

Google Stadia looks like something that would work very well in countries with very fast broadband connections for now. Hopefully, Google would find a way to bridge the gap and fix things before it gets rolled out to Africa and Asia. Nevertheless, it’s a win for gamers with this. So what’s your take on this?
