Why start blogging and where to start?
Let’s talk about money first.
Communication online is our future to be. More and more business is handled online. The store of the future will also be online. you can see it on the chart below where I show the data of the 5 biggest countries of Europe. This is the data from sales that will be made in Europe on the prognoses for 2019 in billions.

The online sales in the USA will increase hug too. And there is a way to blog your way towards, at least, a bit of this money.
E-commerce sales chart of Europe
- Number 1 UK with $137.08 billion
- Second Germany with $78.22 billion
- On the third place France with $64.17 billion
- Fourth is Spain with $26.42 billion
- And Italy is fifth with barely $19.83 billion
Together that’s $324.000.000.000
I only mentioned The Netherlands, because that’s where I live, small as it is, we will spend 400 million on online purchases in 2019.
Do you realize how much money is spent by people purchasing products online worldwide?
(I can not even pronounce this amount of money without asking Google and I hope I have my zero’s correct because this goes above my imagination! Anyway, it’s huge!!!
1 trillion of computers, phones, clothing, food, shoes, boats, pet stuff, make-up, care products… you can’t think of it and it is traded online.
How can you take a piece of that pie?
As a shop owner, it’s a must nowadays, that you have, next to your physical shop, an online shop too. But not everyone owns a shop. How can you get into an online business without one? You can step into this online market with affiliate marketing.
What is affiliate marketing?
Here is a video which explains exactly what affiliate marketing is.
Make money in any niche
With a website, you are able to make money in any niche. You can advertise and blog about any product you want. And when someone anywhere in the world clicks your link and is purchasing the product, you get paid.
And there is a lot of turmoil online, take a look at this website with live stats.
How to blog for an affiliated company
When you have set up your website in a certain niche, you can look for affiliate partners. Companies who will pay you for sales taking place via your website. The company does all the work, you really do not have to worry about shipping and cashing. The only thing you do is writing honest reviews about the products the company is selling.
I did once a review about kids toys, the worst kids toys, and the best kids toys. In my daily life, I run a daycare. And one day the two brothers I look after came to me with one of the worst toys ever. They both got a Zoomer Zuppie. I can’t see who is buying what as an affiliate, but there is a big chance I even earned a few bucks from this purchase.
I want to tell you with this story: You can write good about a product, and bad about a product, as long as you stay honest. Either way, people buy it anyway if they want it.
A year from now.
In about a year from now, you will regret that you didn’t start today! Honestly, this is the right time to start working online. Billions and billions of dollars will be spent and you can get a part of it! With the right knowledge and the perfect education and support, we can teach anybody to create a successful business.
Blog your way to the top.
I know, five years ago, when I started my education and career at the Wealthy Affiliate University, that I thought, oh no, I can’t blog. I don’t know what to write! That changed awfully quick. With my first blogs, I was looking at the counter, 185 words? 201 words? How in heaven can I write a blog about a product with 300 words? Let alone 500 words! Well, I can tell you, it gets easier with every blog you write.
What to blog about?
Everybody has his/her own interests. There are thousands of different niches. And every niche can be monetized. When you love horses, you can blog about saddles and special food. Dogs need benches and leashes. For cooking, you need pans and cutlery. Health-food. Sports supplies. Minerals. Beds. Clothing. Just a few examples to show you where you can write about and how you can intermediate for the customer and the manufacturer. I can go on for quite some time. My next blog will be about 1001 ideas to write about.
