I know there are many newbie people out there who have this question. When you are willing to dedicate some time, you must be clear that this will sure make some real cash at the end.
My answer is a big YES and fellow WF friends here can explain this even better than me.
Another question was about blogging, does blogging makes money or not?
My answer for this is actually blogging doesn't makes any money. But it helps you to have new opportunities to make money.
One example is:
Mr. John is a contractor. He decided to start a blog with tips on Do It Yourself home repairs. He posted helpful articles which were guided step by step so any one with some effort can do self home improvements.
This helped people and they told their friends about it; search engines sent new readers as the blog was having new content.
Then John decided to put a "SERVICES" page where he would put his contact info and offer home repair services. Some of John's regular readers contacted John and hired him to do the work. Now just because he is writing good helpful info for a long time, the readers started to trust him as an expert and they are more willing to get his help on that specific subject.
So you can see that the blog here didn't paid him directly but helped him earn money through the loyal readers who become customers.
So over to you friends, does blogging really makes money or not?
