How Pastors Can Increase Their Income In The Current Economic Recession By Blogging

Today on my blog, I will be sharing with you how you as a pastor or an aspiring one can start a blog and make money from it during this time of economic recession.

You will learn how to title your post, monetize it and promote it on Social media.

Follow me below...

Due to the massive retrenchment in the country and economic recession still looming, it is pertinent to a conclusion that church goers are also getting a bite of the dwindling economic.

In view of this, their financial quota to the church may decline. Hence, the income of the pastor may have ascending hindrance

How can this new development be managed to negate the current alarming state of the country?

Well, the solution still remains diversification of income.

For example, a pastor with physical 3000 members can turn them into 3000 online active members.  

What do I mean?

1. Create a church blog or personal blog eg pastorxxxxx.org. Remember content is the key.

2. You already have the traffic, Get an adsense account, Place on the blog. Most pastors have psychological intelligence.

3. They want people want to hear, For example, jambite need admission Unemployed needs jobs, frustrated single ladies need a husband, A sick man need good health. Many people want to be rich either by miracle or otherwise.

4. So the blog content should be in the format below.

1st Blog post: 2016 a year of unprecedented riches - Claim it here

After that, the post can have all the jargons with relevant keep words

2nd Post title: Reasons why you are still single - God's revelation

3rd Post title: Your Jamb reg number will be your admission number - claim it here.

Just those type of titles and then your content are theologically fit.

After that, on Sunday or midweek service, Announce the launch of your blog.

Tell your congregation that you have given them another platform to a wealth of spiritual information and upliftment.

Promote it on social media, If you have seen AdSense ads on religion, they are on point.

Church members are ignorant. They will click those ads thinking is prayer point.

One pitfall to avoid, Never talk about morality, that is one topic 90% of church people don't want to hear.

You can lose your audience, So focus on prosperity, good health, financial freedom etc.

You can also use the blog to sell your product eg, audio and video church programmes.
