Many of us got into blogging without having any real knowledge about the subject. I started without even knowing the meaning of a key word. In fact I didn't even create my blog myself. I was a writer who published my articles in a local newspaper and then one day a close friend of mine who is knowledgeable about earning online, phoned me and said he has created a blog for me to make my writing available online. This is what he said to me. I joined the internet, invested time in writing high-quality content , and then published it my blog, only to be disappointed when I wasn't getting visitors. Then my friend began to talk to the importance of keyword, website optimization and page indexing e.t.c. I was furious, but I'm aspired to earn money from home so I took time to read and practice how to blog through a different blog. There were still a lot of things wrong but it was better than the previous one. Anyway, I quickly realized that blogging full-time was not the right choice for me. It didn't align with my goals on the internet. It's too competitive, false information and way too much effort involved in searching for blog post ideas for frequent blog updates. I wanted to have a more organized system that would not always leave me in danger. My ultimate goal on the internet is to build lasting e-businesses that will eventually self-manage and generate a decent income each month, with minimal or no effort. Blogs aren't going to help me achieve that goal. God answered my prayer the day my sister registered me as an affiliate to Site Build It! 5-star affiliate program. There were so many resources provided including free ebooks. I downloaded all the ebooks and began with The Affiliate masters class. A 152 page ebook that introduced me to a lasting e-business building process called C-T-P-M Content Traffic, Pre-sell, and Pre-sell Monetization. It was fascinating, and for the first time, I had read something totally different. I later purchased SBI and began to learn more. Everything I learned was logical. How search engines function as they do How to write posts that are pre-selling readers, how to plan a site for profitability prior to launching it, and other such. SBI is an all in one tool for building websites. With all the information I was well-equipped. I understood why a lot of people failed with blogging and are still failing. Also, I realized blogging doesn't make sense for small-scale business ventures.
