What is the potential Return on Investment of a Business blog?

This week I was contacted and hired by somebody who read an article I had posted nearly six months ago.

A business blog is like a bank account which keeps returning interest!

Susan,

Yes, they sure do. The payoff might take time, but the wait is well worth it. Thanks for reading!

I was just listening to a story about Herman Hesse. Apparently his book Siddhartha, which was published in 1951, only achieved real popularity in the sixties. I suppose the lesson is "good things come to those who wait"

Thanks for the motivation, Yoni.

Ronika,

Thanks for reading and responding!

Many famous people achieve success only after they have departed this earth. During their lifetimes, many famous authors and artists lived poor and died poor.

Here's hoping we reach our capacities while still kickin'!

You are 100% right yoni, search engines love blogs.

Hi Yoni,

Investment is a great way to describe a blog and a reminder that potential customers can turn up long after the post has been done.

Really happy for you that all your efforts are working out for you.

I think that blogging is like anything else in business. You must invest blood, sweat, snd tears. Almost nobody gets rich or succeeds immediately.

All of the energy which is expended is an investment towards future dividends. Good luck!

Susan,

It truly is an investment. Thanks for your kind words...things might be working out, but as is the case with many, many writers of the freelance variety, I can't wait to see a real profit and be able to pay bills on time!

This is great advice Yoni. People tend to want instant results. A faster internet connection, fast food and everything now. People also expect instant results from a blog which is why I suppose that so many blogs are ended soon after beginning. Things take time and I'm sure that results from blogging do too.

Shoshana,

Great analogies with internet speed and fast food. Another is exercise. While I was in San Francisco in 1993...my family had moved out there, I worked at a gym (World's Gym-Golden Gate Park -9th and Irving...Hey guys and gals!); I never got over being amazed how many people quit going after a few weeks...but continued paying out their memberships. We are a society which expects instantaneous results. Sometimes the reward is delayed and patience is required.

Hi Yoni,

My Dad always said compound interest was man's greatest invention. (A year after the 1st Moon landing, my physics teacher said he thought man's greatest invention was the color TV. Some nerdy kid asked: Not the computer?? He said no, for him, color TV.)

Duncan,

I'm gonna go with toilet-paper. I tried leaves while camping once. Very uncomfortable.

Yonatan,

I really like the analogy of the blog and the bank account. It is good advice to any blogger to have patience and to realize that hard work today can have a pay off in the future. Just like interest in the bank.

Peace/Shalom/Salaam
