Who is a professional Blogger and how to become one?

I never thought that apart from running my own blog I could be on the other side, i.e. the client. However, this has happened and I want to tell you about a few issues that are worth paying attention to (if you are serious about your blog and want to start making money on it or cooperate with companies barterly).
how to make money on the blog?
Barter cooperation is ok because you can get a nice product (usually on your own). At some point, when you put more and more work into your blog - you expect something more. But remember that it is worth measuring your capabilities with a real measure i.e., if 2000 people enter your blog monthly - do not require the payer to pay you several thousand for your sponsored post. We still have to wait for it 😉

Thank you and write a few words about yourself

If someone writes to you with an offer of cooperation - it is worth thanking for your interest in your blog. There are so many blogs on the web right now. It's nice when someone notices your hard work.

It's also good to write a few words about yourself - where are you from, how old are you and why did you start a blog at all. Thanks to this, you become a professional and friendly person from the first paragraph of your email.

Statistics from Google Analytics

Last month at the Meet Beauty conference, I noticed at one of the lectures that few Bloggers use Google Analytics. I can tell you it's even worse - very few Bloggers use Google Analytics. I wonder why, because if a blog is taken seriously and you are thinking about making money from running it or at least undertaking any cooperation - this should be the basis.
Instead of statistics from Google Analytics, many Bloggers send me blogger statistics. If you think about professional blogging, then the basis is friendship with Google Analytics . Do not send statistics from your blogger to your potential client, because you show that you have no idea about blogging.

Keep an eye on your deadlines

Of course, it is better to meet deadlines, but sometimes there are slips (also for us). If it happens that the post was to go on Wednesday, and for some reason you do not have time to write a sponsored note - send an e-mail / call your principal and just apologize. It will look much better than if you disappear without a word.

Stupid excuses

This point is the most interesting because I read many interesting excuses. If you do not want to cooperate with someone, just write, and don't make a stupid excuse like "my grandmother died and I can't." You must be honest with 100% when dealing with other people, otherwise cooperation doesn't make sense.

Read emails before sending them

When I get e-mails with typos or questions that I have already answered, I wonder if anyone reads my e-mails at all. It is better to read the e-mail twice than to send it, and then think about its content. Of course, you can forget about something - an additional question suddenly appeared (I will say a little more about the questions), but it is better to include everything in one e-mail than spam the customer's inbox, which is still bursting at the seams.

Pytania

It is very important to ask questions, i.e. agree everything before signing the contract. Colloquially speaking - after signing the contract it will be swept away.

Agreement

It's always worth signing a contract. Even if the client doesn't send it to you - it's good to have a template of your contract that you can send to him. Thanks to this, we receive everything in writing (in the event that the client suddenly complains to us that we did not do something - we can always send the signed contract and show "hey, there was no such thing in the contract"), in addition, we have more self-control over us, because the contract has a specific date and scope of the order that we must complete.
I hope that my advice will help you create your image as a professional. I wish you fruitful cooperation!

      Believe me - a lot of Bloggers can imagine life without GA, and they don't know Semstorm at all

    "Read emails before sending them"

    Well, I do not know why no one came up with a mechanism asking 3 times the question "are you sure you want to send this email" 🙂 Sometimes a person clicks "send", and in a moment the word "ups ..." appears in his head. :))

    • Avatar [Email protected] 7 June 2017 / 06: 48

      Fortunately, some email boxes offer the option to undo email. Unfortunately, you also have to act quickly 😉

  2. Avatar Kasia Koniakowska 7 June 2017 / 06: 41

    Very nice and specific. It's worth creating business cards and carrying them with you. You never know when they will be useful 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 7 June 2017 / 06: 51

      Oh yes! Business cards are also very important - just like a simple blog address. Our blog once had the address good-for-you-dp.blogspot.com (it couldn't be done any longer: D) imagine that we didn't have business cards then and dictated the address to someone, e.g. at a bloggers meeting. This was only the max 😉 meltdown

    I have to write a cooperation agreement for the first time, are there any designs or could you send me an e-mail? Thank you for the article.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 2 March 2017 / 09: 18

      Hello, you can easily change the template contract for specific cooperation 🙂 Thanks for dropping an idea, I will try to find my pattern, modify it a bit and upload it to the blog for download 🙂

  4. Avatar Multi-generational 3 5 December 2016 / 08: 15

    A lot of useful advice 😉 As soon as I set up a blog, it was immediately GA (by the way, I love checking these statistics! 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 5 December 2016 / 12: 39

      It boasts! GA is the foundation in blogging. I will give you a secret - I also love to check statistics, especially when I see increases :)))

  5. Avatar Aleksander Kania I like to live 2 May 2016 / 11: 35

    Hello, thank you for this post, so far my blog does not have a strong position in the network yet, but you need to start learning much earlier, not the last bell.

    Best wishes,

    Advice seems simple and obvious, but only for those who have not yet tried. My additional advice. Write extensively, but only on topics that require it. If you "pour water" on any topic, you will lose. Oh, the right balance between fasting and sponsored posts must be kept.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 19 November 2015 / 20: 25

      Very good advice. Unfortunately, some people forget about it (especially when they are just beginning their cooperation) and write sponsored posts every now and then, which makes the blog unreliable.

  7. Avatar Witek 18 November 2015 / 15: 10

    I start the adventure on the WP platform and I was interested in a detail about Google Analytics. I tried both plugins - Dashboard and Yoast - and none of them were authorized by Google. I do not know why. I would be grateful for help. Greetings.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 20 November 2015 / 11: 00

      Hello,
      Unfortunately, I've never used the Wp platform, I won't help either. I recommend you take a look at this forum. Perhaps there you will find the answer to your question. If not, I recommend asking them in the 'Ask' section.

      Regards.

  8. Avatar Magdalena N. 12 November 2015 / 07: 26

    I will ask for more information in the subject of Google Analytics 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 12 November 2015 / 08: 36

      I think that within 2 weeks an entry will appear on this topic 🙂

  9. Avatar Lil Oddiette 12 November 2015 / 02: 58

    Interesting entry, I think it will be very useful to novice bloggers 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 12 November 2015 / 05: 27

      Not just beginners. Many advanced bloggers do not use Google Analytics ...

  10. Avatar Janusz Bartoszek 11 November 2015 / 22: 39

    A quintessence about running a blog 🙂 I also use google analytics 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 11 November 2015 / 22: 42

      Thank you for the kind words. It's good that you use Analytics 🙂

  11. Avatar Kasia 11 November 2015 / 16: 51

    An interesting post. I liked it all the more because I'm just starting the blog.

  12. Avatar Madziakowo 11 November 2015 / 15: 27

    these contracts are sometimes funny;)

  13. Avatar kobietka 11 November 2015 / 12: 24

    Very useful information. We bloggers try to run a blog well, perfect the template, posts and photos, and it turns out that we forget about the most important things. It's also good that you raised these issues.
    I was thinking about Google Analytics but there is nobody to advise me what and how, which is why I would like to use your tips 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 11 November 2015 / 12: 34

      It is important to take care of the blog's aesthetics, but also about technical issues 🙂

  14. Avatar Zzielona 11 November 2015 / 09: 41

    All in all well written. Google Analytics is a very cool tool that shows the actual popularity of the blog and real interest in it, as well as individual entries.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 11 November 2015 / 11: 29

      Unfortunately, blogger statistics are distorted. You can see everything in Analytics 😉

  15. Avatar A. notcopyacat 11 November 2015 / 08: 25

    My blog is currently hobby, so I would call it 😀

    • Avatar [Email protected] 11 November 2015 / 11: 30

      I also started this way (as I was running a blog without Piotr). Today, we strive to make it one of the sources of income 🙂

  16. Avatar king naturally 11 November 2015 / 07: 57

    A great entry 🙂 Google Analytics is the basis, because let's say statistics from Google and blogger differ a little bit 😀

    • Avatar [Email protected] 11 November 2015 / 11: 31

      Blogger statistics are distorted. Even at the Meet Beauty conference, there was talk about how Blogger collects statistics. Analytics is the best so far.

  17. Avatar Anna Bielaszewska 11 November 2015 / 07: 19

    I always answer all e-mails. If I don't want to cooperate with someone, I just write. I do not like myself, waiting for an answer and here nothing even proverbial hug in 4 letters.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 11 November 2015 / 11: 32

      I also don't like unanswered emails. I always write a question if my e-mail has arrived. If someone still does not reply, I ignore the topic.

  18. Avatar Angelika Ś. 10 November 2015 / 22: 40

    man, and I do not understand Google Analytics at all: /

    • Avatar [Email protected] 10 November 2015 / 22: 52

      Milena has already given me the idea to write a post with the basics of Google Analytics. I will try to prepare something on this topic 🙂

    • Avatar kirei 11 November 2015 / 09: 40

      It could be useful - I installed GA and I try to keep an eye on it, but to be honest I have never had the patience to comprehend all the functions and I don't quite know which data is most important, because there are a lot of bookmarks there 😉

    • Avatar [Email protected] 11 November 2015 / 11: 33

      Kirei will try to create something this week, but the fastest time will be next week. Certainly, an entry about Analytics will appear this month.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 10 November 2015 / 22: 52

      The first part of the pill is definitely one more plan 😉

  19. Avatar Sylwia tests and advises 10 November 2015 / 21: 24

    Super written simply and concretely. Fortunately, by founding a blog I found good help, which immediately advised using Google Analytics. What I noticed a lot of people blog and do not know what it is and what Google Analytics is used for.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 11 November 2015 / 11: 33

      Oh, even a lot of people don't know that this issue is being raised more and more often.

  20. Avatar OLA GRABKOWSKA 10 November 2015 / 19: 36

    I don't remember when the post interested me so much. I read it twice. I agree with all the points:) ... You don't even know how carefully I wrote this comment so as not to make typos hi hi.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 10 November 2015 / 19: 41

      Thank you very much for your kind words. Next week there will be another post from this series to which I cordially invite you 🙂
      Hahaha without exaggeration with these typos - everyone happens 😀

      Greetings :*

  21. Avatar Beauty Land 10 November 2015 / 19: 13

    All in all, I knew that for a long time, maybe because I blog for a long time and with time people learn.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 10 November 2015 / 19: 43

      You have to learn everything and reach everything (preferably yourself, because then you learn the most) 🙂

  22. Avatar Malinka M. 10 November 2015 / 18: 44

    And I use Google Analytics. However, I was only asked for statistics a few times, including blogger 🙂 at the beginning
    The post will definitely be useful to many people, you had a nice idea for it :)

    • Avatar [Email protected] 10 November 2015 / 18: 48

      Statistics are always requested for larger marketing campaigns. Especially when it is assumed to work only with specific Bloggers (who have a specific number of views on the blog).

  23. Avatar Milena M. 10 November 2015 / 18: 28

    Nice guide, some time ago I created an account on Google Analytisc, but I have a problem with it, e.g. checking the monthly number of views. Maybe you have plans to post on this topic? :>

    • Avatar g[Email protected] 10 November 2015 / 18: 33

      Sure, why not! I will gladly prepare a post on this topic 🙂

  24. Avatar Sailing 10 November 2015 / 18: 11

    Very good and useful guide. 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 10 November 2015 / 18: 14

      Thank you. I am planning another post from this series for sure 🙂

  25. Avatar Marzena T. 10 November 2015 / 17: 46

    Very useful advice, it's good to know what to expect from the other party. I have analytics goggles from the beginning, these statistics on the blogger are not good and are often very falsified.
    I always try to have a good relationship with the people I work with, I can't imagine getting a product for testing and failing to comply with a verbal or written contract ... - good information flow; D

    • Avatar [Email protected] 10 November 2015 / 18: 17

      In that case you are one of the few Bloggers who use Google Analytics. I have been in contact recently with about a hundred Bloggers and only 10% uses Google Analytics.

      The expectations of each company may be different, but I have listed the most common 'requirements' 🙂 here

  26. Avatar 111 Strudel 10 November 2015 / 17: 38

    I think that my efforts when it comes to the blog are not on the worst level, but sometimes I am not satisfied with my work. Very cool advice 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 10 November 2015 / 18: 18

      Thank you. There is definitely one more post in this series planned. Who knows, maybe someone will inspire me to write other tips :))
