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!

Is it worth being a blogger these days?

how to set up a blog

The idea for this post was born after my thoughts on the blogosphere. I have been writing a blog since 2009 and believe me over the years, the blogosphere has undergone a huge metamorphosis. I'm not sure if it's better or worse.

I once wrote on the blog about the phenomenon "I take what I can", which means that bloggers and bloggers are already testing literally everything - my hit is erotic lingerie. But everyone sets the limits of decency.

Why is it worth being a blogger?

At present, there is a trend under the slogan "I am a blogger". It used to be something strange, sometimes even embarrassing. Today, anyone can be a blogger.

And it's beautiful, because thanks to it I visit a lot of interesting and surprising places. Thanks to blogs I've been to many wonderful places on Earth.

However, to be a good blogger you need a lot of time, a lot of self-denial and discipline. Because the most important thing is that the notes appear regularly. It's best to work out a schedule for posting so that the reader knows that he or she can expect scraps on a given day. You will see that after some time you will not even have to say when a new post appears, your readers will know it.

How to start blogging cooperation?

If you start cooperation with cosmetics or other companies, humility is the most important thing. If it doesn't work out the first time - don't give up, just keep writing. Everyone is afraid to be the "first", but after some time you will notice that companies are writing to you, and not the other way around.

It is also important to be a professional. If the company requires statistics for you from last month - you can send a screenshot from Google Analytics. Also write what is included in the price of the sponsored post or if it is a barter exchange - write a contract in which all terms of cooperation will be included. Thanks to this you will avoid unpleasant situations, because they can happen as well.


If you have any questions about cooperation - don't be afraid to ask. It is better if you agree everything when there is time, and not during the advertising campaign.
Summarizing: I wish all bloggers except hard work: meeting deadlines, humbleness and a lot of fun running a blog! :)
