I never really thought that I would be thinking of business models when it comes to blogging. As such, I found this particular post detailing the different blog business models quite interesting â€“ even thought provoking. Bryan, on OneMansGoal outlines three different types of business models which can help you make money through your blog (or blogs for that matter).
He calls this group â€œsuperâ€ because the people behind these kinds of blogs run a big operation. They may focus on only one or two blogs but their idea is to operate in the long run and haul in income while they are at it. The majority of their time is spent on constantly improving their blogs, marketing them, and establishing brand awareness.
The Niche Blogger
This blogger type is a bit different from the previous one in that the focus is on more blogs. As such, the effort and activity are not centered on one or two main blogs but more spread out on a network of blogs. The main concept behind niche blogging is to set up the blogs in such a way that they can attract a lot of readers and then not spend too much time in maintaining them.
The Blog Broker
The blog broker works behind the scenes â€“ he sets up blogs or even purchases them. He then develops them in such a way that they can earn money. Hereâ€™s the money making point â€“ he then sells the blogs for more than what he paid for them or more than what he spent on them.
So which business model do you fall under?
