Ok, I know this has the potential of being controversial, but hear me out! I’m not saying you should NOT have a blog, but that you shouldn’t START your business with a blog, and here are 3 reasons why.
1. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Especially if you are not tech savvy, starting a blog on a platform like WordPress can take so much time figuring out and piecing together. This is time and effort that could be spent on actually getting clients for free on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. IF you do use a blog, use it as a type of funnel to lead people into your email list or Facebook group community, NOT to monetize. Monetizing a blog can take a really long time, and again, ain’t nobody got time for that!
2. Perfectionism will start to creep in.
If you start off with a blog, you might get the tendency to want everything juuuuust right before you take any kind of massive action that will actually move you toward your income goals. Many people start blogs, get overwhelmed with creating the content and all the pins to put on Pinterest, earn $0, get overwhelmed, and quit. I don’t want that to be you. And did I mention this is a waste of time?
3. Blogs are a dime a dozen and free content doesn’t change lives.
Unless you have a TRULY unique and hot market you can tap into, then it will be really hard to reach your income goals with a blog… at least as quickly as you might like. Why not share the same content in your own Facebook group where you can nurture your audience directly and go LIVE and grow that know, like, and trust factor incredibly fast? Plus… it’s free
So there you have it, folks, 3 reasons why I do NOT think it’s a good idea to start your business off with a blog.
Now, once you start to grow your audience on social media and you start posting incredibly valuable content, THEN you can easily just upload that same content onto a blog. Or hire a VA to do it and create the pins to go along with it.
What are your thoughts? Are starting blogs right off the bat a good idea? What has been your experience?
