If you have an interest that you are very passionate about, I’m guessing you think about that interest every single day. Whether it is a hobby, a course of study, a vocation or anything else, chances are you spend most of your spare time pursuing this interest. Have you ever thought about how you can turn your passion into profit? Using the internet is a great way to market your interests.
Blogging about your passions is one of the best ways to get started. You can set up a free blog using WordPress.com and begin posting about your subject. Be sure to use plenty of photos and informative material so your blog will be discovered by others who share your passion.
As an example, I am going to use camping as your passion. You and your family spend much of your free time camping. There are so many possibilities to write a blog about this niche so you decide to narrow it down a bit and write about tent camping. Every time you and your family go camping in a tent, take your camera with you. Take photos of various campsites, your activities and family photos. Start to incorporate funny stories, for example, the first time you took your kids fishing, or the first time your daughter had to clean a fish. Take pictures of every event and include them in your blog.
Over time, you will have countless articles about tent camping. You can include such topics as: how to pick the best campsite, good places to camp, how to set up a tent, how to build a fire, how to cook over an open fire, how to keep your groceries fresh. As you can see, there are endless possibilities. Make sure your blog posts are filled with good information, great photos and perhaps funny stories, and your readers will keep coming back.
The opportunities to monetize tent camping are countless. You could add posts comparing different types of tents, cookware, camping equipment, fishing equipment, hunting equipment and more.
Remember that if you want to turn your passion into profit, keep the blog posts light and fun. It is fine to share links with your readers to sites selling what you are talking about but never, ever give them a hard sell. That is the fastest way to turn them off to your blog and risk the chance of them never returning. On the contrary, if they enjoy reading your blog and you have provided them with value, they will keep coming back. Be sure to continue adding to your blog routinely.
I hope these tips will help you if you decide that you would like to turn your passion into profit through internet marketing and blogging.
