If you have a blog and want to make some money and profit with it then here is 3 simple ways to profit from your blog!
I am sure you have heard that by writing a book you almost instantly position yourself as an expert. Well, the same is true with a blog because no matter what you’re selling or what business your business model is, a blog can help you achieve more because it helps establish you as an expert.
As I mentioned earlier whereas people use to publish books to showcase their expertise, now most anyone can publish a blog. And once that blog becomes popular, the blogger’s status is further elevated in the niche.
And that is NOT all.
The more good content you pst, the more your readers start to trust you…and that indirectly leads to more sales.
Plus if you allow your readers to interact with you(by allowing comments), that further strengthens your bond with them. End result? A more profitable blog.
Some people use blogs to raise their status in a niche. And some people use this elevated status as a springboard to more opportunities, such as free publicity and book deals.
Example: The big book publishers like to see when one of their newly signed authors has a platform. By platform I mean a waiting audience. A blog is one such platform. If you build a popular blog and then go after a book deal, you can bet the publishers will take note.
The third and final way to make money from your blog is to promote affiliate offers. What do I mean by affiliate offers. Well, there are lots of products being sold online and people who own those products are willing to pay a commission to you if you sell it to your faithful followers. One of the biggest affiliates out there is Amazon. Back in the early days that is how Amazon built a huge business by having other people sell the product on their site or to their list of followers while paying a small commission on each sale.
So how do you go about finding and promoting an affiliate product?
Complete these steps to get started:
**One mistake to not make and that is do not promote crap…meaning make sure you believe in the product and use it yourself! Surefire way to lose credibility!**
Those are just three simple ways to to profit from your blog. If you would like to learn more you can check out my “31 Day Guide to Blogging for Profits.”
Okay, I have been getting a lot of emails asking me about QR Codes and how can I get one. Well, back in January of this year I wrote about a feature Google is promoting called “Google Places.” In that post, which you can read about what Google is doing with it I had briefly talked about QR codes. QR codes are still unknown to most people but they are showing up a lot more all over the place. I mean just the other day I received some advertisement in the mail that had a QR code at the bottom. Also, my new business card for Working Mom Workouts I put a QR code on the back because my business is all online and I need people to go to my website. If you have any type of business you need one and here is why!
1.) Direct people to your website as I explained with the use of my card
2.) Create promotional messages
3.) Create discounts that your customers can scan the code and be taken to
4.) Capture new leads
Those are just a few examples of how to use the QR code. What I want to do next is to show you how easy it is to create one in a short video.
