101 Blogging Tips (Part 58) Make Sure Your Website Is Up Don’t Lose Money
This question will mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. So depending on your personality type and financial mindset it will vary immensely. There really is not one piece of advice to fit all as it all depends on what your blog or website is about and what your business skill set comprises of.
Your needs will vary also your personality type will also determine what things you like to do or want to avoid doing. You may love writing but hate creating graphics or videos. You may love doing videos but hate writing or promoting and Social Media. Of course you may be one of the rare people who love doing all of these things, and that is great too.
Here is a list of some of the things you may want to outsource. Of course the first thing you will need to do if you are brand new is to create a blog or website, you could spend your time or money figuring out how to do this. Or you may wish to get someone who has got experience in this field to do it for you.
I found that my Internet Business started to become more successful after I paid some mentors who where already having online success to teach me what I should be doing, of course this is a choice. You will generally find things will either cost you some time or money. And I figured out a while ago that time is limited so I prefer to pay to get things done faster whenever possible.
Some things you may want to outsource especially in the beginning could be making a blog or website. When you make a blog or website yourself you still may need some help with the design and/or branding of your website. Then of course you need to start driving traffic to your blog or website. If you are not experienced in social media you may want someone to create and brand the social media accounts for your website.
Once the social media accounts are setup you need to ask yourself a few other questions including will I want to, or be able to have enough time to update all the social media sites when I create new content on my blog or website? Or when your company or business launches a new product offer or services? Will you be happy enough spending your own time updating all of them?
In fact another question you may want to ask yourself.
Is doing social media for my business the most cost effective money producing activity that I should be doing in my business right now?
This of course will depend on you or your business if you are JK Rowling and you stop writing your next multi $1,000,000 book for 5 hours every day so you can spend time updating your Twitter and Facebook account it may not be the best or most effective way to build your business? When you can outsource it for a lot less than that.
It may sound obvious but many online business owners cost themselves a lot of money by trying to skimp on minor expenses. They end up missing out on doing the big money making activity’s which can and will transform the income from their business. In fact I have been guilty of it on many occasions what about you?

When it comes to blogging or creating a website nice pictures. logos and graphics can make or break your blog.
For the first few years I struggled with my websites and Facebook etc because of a lack of tools and understanding when it came to website graphics . After lots of trial and error I finally figured out what I was doing and discovered some cool tools to create logos, Facebook banners, website banners and other graphics.
Yes of course you can go to websites and buy photographs for your website but if you are just starting out on the Internet it can work out pretty expensive especially if you are producing a lot of content regularly.
Of course some people just go to Google images but the problem with that is a lot of the images that show up may be subject to copyright. In fact there are a lot of online photo companies that purposely put lots of copyright pictures on the internet and then threaten to sue you for using their images or send you a large bill.
There are a limited number of websites where you can go and get royalty free images. Or you can use specialised tools or logo creation software to make your own images. In today’s post I am going to be showing you some of the ones that I use most of them are free except for one of them. All of the tools are tools that I use regularly on my own websites, blogs and banners etc.
In fact if you found this post useful I would be very grateful if you could share it with your social media friends and followers. 🙂
1. Canva.Com – This is one I discovered recently in fact it is one of my recent favourites there are lots of free pictures to chose from and you can use it to make Custom sized banners, facebook pictures, Facebook Banners and most other things you can think of. It comes highly recommended by me in fact most of the images on this blog are from Canva.Com
2. LOGO Creator – This is a great piece of software it is a paid software but the options and things you can do with it are amazing and you can make practically anything with this. Compared to photoshop or other similar type software it is dirt cheap and once again comes highly recommended by me. And like all the other items here I use it myself on a regular basis.. 🙂 Click Here To See It In Action
