Can You Blog for Profit?
Blogging is an amazing tool for getting in front of your audience and letting people know what you do. I tell everyone that having a blog is like owning Real Estate online. You know have a home where you can do business out of and it is virtual.
The down side to blogging is that it is not going to make you an instant success overnight unless, maybe, you already have an established brand.
So what you have to remember with blogging is that it is a marathon and no sprint. Take the time to find the right domain name, know your intent with your blog and be willing to do the research.
Wow, so blogging is about writing daily! huh!
This is where I did not succeed with blogging. I would write 4 or 5 posts a month and wonder why I was not getting any traffic to my site. I also struggled with sharing my message because of criticism or negativity, which I have seen gotten over.
Now how do you Blog for Profit
Couple of things you can do….
- Do Product review. Review a product and if it has an affiliate link use that as a way to make commission on a product.
- Have a product to sell. Let people know you have a product to sell and give them a way to buy it.
- Email Campaign. Have a give-a-way or newsletter for your readers to subscribe to. When they subscribe let them know what to expect. Are you going to email them daily, weekly, bi-weekly? Let them know and stick with it.
- Sell ad space on your site. You could make an extra $20-$75 per ad.
Small Reminder – Don’t go crazy! No one like to land on a blog and have to dig through ads to find the content they were there for in the first place.
