3 Simple Ways to Profit From Your Blog

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!

Establish Yourself as an Expert

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.

Get Publicity Opportunities

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.

 Promote Affiliate Offers

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:

  1. Choose a hungry niche
  2. Select a profitable, in demand product to sell to that niche.
  3. Set up a blog and start creating content that caters to the niche.
  4. Promote your affiliate product on your blog (sometimes even directly in your posts) and start making money.
  5. Drive targeted, cash in hand prospects to your blog…and cash in!

**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.

 

22 minutes to generating business on Facebook

What if  I told you that all you need to do is set aside 22 minutes of your time and you could be generating business on Facebook.
I mean let’s face it you have heard all the buzz about how you need a Facebook Fan Page for your business but do you really know what you need to do to convert ‘Fans’ into customers. Don’t worry I was right there with you when I first started but I finally realized I needed to learn more about how to use my fan page to capture leads and eventually get sales.
I came across a guy by the name of Brian Moran who didn’t just promote his product as a “buy this to make millions” but showed me how to grow a fan base that actually buys from you. Brian practices what he preaches and gives out great content.
Check out this live demo from Brian Moran of Get 10,000 Fans! Brian has taken multiple Fan Page from 0 to 10,000 fans and way beyond. And here is a short demo he did about 2 unbelievably common mistakes so many of us make when marketing on Facebook. Check it out!
Oh, and yes in full disclosure that is my affiliate link but as I always do I never promote anyone that I have not personally either used their products or followed them for some time.
I truly believe that if you just follow one or two of Brian’s strategies you will grow a Facebook Fan page that will give you paying customers.
