Did you know that every week, more than 3.5 billion pieces of information such as links, blog posts, and news, are shared every week over Facebook? Working online is all about exposure and making sure that people come to your website and see your work, whether you are a blogger, have a company that sells services or products online, or you have some other form of online work. One thing is for sure, Social Media definitely does a lot of the leg work for you to get your name out there.
If you are going to be a blogger, you are going to really have to take blogging to the next level. Bloggers on average do spend a full 40 hours a week creating new content, promoting their blog, and making sure that they keep updating with relevant content to keep their readers interested.
Between researching for interesting things to write about, actually writing blog posts, as well as getting exposure by posting on social media sites, working online is as time consuming, sometimes more so, than a regular office job. It doesn’t help that it entirely depends on how many people view your blog, as well as how much sponsors will pay you to host ads on your blog, since most of your payment is going to come from ad revenue.
As it is though, it is a common misconception that working online is an easy way to make money, but as you can see, it really is just as much work, if not more, than if you had a regular hourly paying job. However, if it is something that you genuinely enjoy doing, then it will likely feel like less work than a job that you dislike.
