If you’re a blogpreneur, you’re a business owner who is serious about generating income from your blogging endeavors. However, to make money, you have to spend money, and depending on the nature of your blog, this may amount to a fortune. All’s fair though if you can justify your expenses by making a hefty profit, whether instant or in the future.
That being said, not all blog owners can cater for hefty expenses, except for the ones who win the lottery! Here’s a look at what a lottery-winning blog owner may spend a million on to promote turnover.
Innovative Blogging Tools
If you’re looking to create top notch content, you’ll need high quality webcams, microphones and video cameras. If you have a vlog or are engaging in podcasts, you’ll need to purchase a High Density (HD) webcam.
One of the best and by far the priciest webcams you can buy is the Fujifilm GFX 100. It enables you to transform your X series or GFX cameras into a $10,000 webcam. It enhances the quality of your digital cameras as opposed to a built-in webcam.
If you’re looking for a quality microphone to record your videos, you could buy a Zoom H4N multitrack recorder, a Blue Yeti Universal Series Bus (USB) microphone, or an Audio- Technica line microphone with a gradient condenser.
For excellent videography, blog owners could opt for the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV video camera. Other high-end video cameras include the Panasonic Lumix GH5, the Nikon Coolpix P1000, and the Panasonic 4K camcorder.
Investing in a Top Notch Smartphone
If you buy a few online lottery tickets and win, you could invest in a state of the art smartphone for your photography needs. This is especially helpful if you have a travel, arts and crafts, foodie, or design blog.
These tiny powerhouses allow you to take the most impressive photographs and videos at just about any angle, and you won’t need to adjust your lenses. Spend your dollars on the latest craze in the smartphone world with the Apple iPhone 11 Pro and experience cutting edge imaging excellence.
Enjoy this smartphone’s triple-camera array and portrait effects. The resolution for both front and rear cameras is 12MP, giving you quality shots to accompany all your blog posts. If you have a blog comprising reviews, this camera phone will definitely do your featured products justice.
If you really want to pull out all the stops, opt for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G smartphone. This gem has a behemoth of 108MP and an 8K video, plus you’ll be able to zoom in 100x for the clearest blog images ever!
Hiring Content Creators
You may be too busy running the business side of your blog with advertising, finding sponsors, and hiring the right Pay Per Click (PPC) company for your blog content. If this is the case, you could spend part of your million hiring freelance writers, photographers, or videographers to create the bulk of your content.
Expenses Linked to Your Blog Type
There are numerous types of blogs out there ranging from travel blogs to fashion blogs to food and cuisine blogs. Most blog owners blog on their experiences. If you have a travel blog, you can spend your million by booking some getaways to the world’s most exotic or interesting locations. There’s also no need to backpack with a million in your bank account, as you can stay in the world’s most renowned hotels like the Plaza, Hilton, and Ritz.
If you’re an ardent fashion blogger, you’d benefit greatly by attending prestigious fashion events to blog about. Since money is no object, you could simply book a seat at a Valentino haute couture, Givenchy, Dolce and Gabbana, or Chanel fashion event, and start blogging away about these unforgettable experiences.
For the dedicated foodie blogger, there’s nothing better than attending a food festival of epic proportions. If this is you and you’re looking for ways to spend your million on your blog, book your tickets to the annual Golden Spurtle in Scotland, England’s mouth-watering Watercress festival, or Tobago’s Blue Food festival. Or book a flight to Hong Kong for their dumpling festival or to France for their Castagnades chestnut fair.
