|Why is bloggers not in good standing?|
Today will be a bit about bloggers. When I say I'm a blogger, there are comments like this:
- but cool, you probably get a lot of stuff for free
- you do nothing and the money flies from heaven
- you probably sell for a pack of gum like most bloggers
Why do most people think that a blogger is a person who gets a lot of gifts, advertises just what a pack of chewing gums, and actually does nothing and the money flies from the sky? Because most bloggers work on this opinion and it still has an impact on the fact that each blogger is thrown into one bag.
Because you have everything for free!
Getting gifts from companies is one of the privileges of blogging. However, this has a second bottom. You just don't get a gift so that you will enjoy it, and because you are supposed to mention it on your social media channel by default. In a word - there is nothing for free.
You sell yourself for a pack of chewing gums
Yes, there are bloggers who take everything just because it's free. I have already written about blogging Janusz on the occasion of another topic (see post). Not once have I met the story of a blog that was founded just to have something for free. Unfortunately, you can not do anything about it, you can only rebel against it, and this will not have any effect.
This behavior is toxic to people who take blogging seriously. By such bloggers, many companies allow themselves to cooperate with low quality (high requirements in exchange for a packet of chewing gums). If you don't cooperate then Krysia will do it in post # cooperation No. 5250. I don't have to mention that he will do it for next to nothing? I'll even thank you for being able to chew gum for free.
Blogging, or about how cash flies from the sky
It would be nice if at least once a year the cash register flew from the sky ... cramps, although for an hour ... unfortunately I have never come across such a day, not even a moment (which is a pity!). Yes, there are two types of cooperation on the blog - one that is well paid and requires low workload, but most of the jobs are those that require a little more time.
When testing products, we first devote a certain amount of time to testing it (usually about a month). Then we write our observations and only on their basis a post is created. You have to put it all nicely into words (and not always a vein) so as to interest the reader. You also need to take pictures of the product and promote it on social media. While the post on Google + is published alone, on the fanpage and Instagram you have to do it manually, and this requires some creativity. If you count the time spent on prepared fasts and all other post-postal activities, it turns out that the money from heaven does not go. Surprise? Try writing a post, taking photos, promoting it on social media ... how long will it take you?
How do you change your opinion about Bloggers?
Unfortunately, bloggers have a poor opinion and unfortunately most of us have earned it by our reckless behavior. Remember that your actions affect not only how others perceive you, but also how you are perceived in the role you play (in this case Blogger).
To change the prevailing opinion about bloggers, try to behave professionally in 100%, and make up for the lack of knowledge by creativity and willingness to train in a given topic. Read articles, books related to blogging. In a word, educate, because knowledge does not come by itself.
Do not be afraid to make mistakes, because learning from your own experience brings the best results. We also made mistakes, but it was thanks to them that the Blogger's Guide was created (click), in which we share acquired knowledge and many years of experience in running a blog.
