A question that comes up on internet marketing forums on a regular basis is which blogging platform is the best to use for making money out of WordPress and Blogger.
There are as many opinions as there are people blogging and unfortunately many of the people who give advice don’t have a clue what they are talking about.
The reasons many of them give just don’t matter when it comes to making money.
I give advice to other marketers based on the results that I have achieved with my business from using both of these tools and it’s not quite as easy as it seems to advise people for the following reasons:
WordPress is a far more flexible application and there are many excellent plugins that can assist in various areas to help make more money.
The fact that there are so many options with WordPress is also the problem for people who are just starting out.
I get emails from people week’s later saying that they are still setting up ‘such and such’ plugin on their WordPress blog.
Plugins are not hard to use UNLESS you are a complete newbie, in which case they can suck up a lot of the time that you could be using to make money.
I have built massive lists using Blogger and continue to do so simply because it is so simple and it works.
These lists generate many thousands of dollars so to assume that Blogger isn’t a serious business tool is just foolish.
The advice that I give most people when they are starting is to use the one that they are most likely to get online and making money the fastest.
For the beginner that is usually Blogger. We have to realize that someone who has just started working online might not even know who to use cPanel so setting up their WordPress blog could be too time consuming for their progress until they can learn more.
One is not better than the other. They are both different and they both have there use in making money online.
