A Steady Income With Your Blog
Here is how you blog to make real money:
You don’t need them. Advertisements pay you virtually nothing and turn readers, also your potential subscribers, off. That’s how amateurs monetize their blogs. Pros make money on the backend – by selling things to their subscribers… after they’ve earned their trust. Whatever you blog about and whoever you blog for, your subscribers are hungry for something.
2) Every Person on This Earth Is Hungry for Something
You just need to know what that hunger is, and how you can provide for it. Let’s say you blog about cooking and you share all your favorite recipes with your subscribers. Well, they’re going to be hungry for recipe books, rare ingredients, cooking equipment, novelties for their table… loads of things. You could make these products yourself… like an eBook compilation of all your favorite recipes… or packed jars of a rare spice, which happens to be sold at the market around the corner from you.
Ok, now let’s say you blog about dating, and you share all your best tips with your subscribers. Well, they’re hungry for more dating success. You could sell eBooks too… or you could sell personalized consulting over the telephone. You see where I’m going with this. If you’re willing to think outside the box…
As long as it’s related to the subject you’re blogging about. Heck, you don’t even have to provide anything yourself. You can refer them to other people and businesses… in return for a referral fee. There are loads of businesses out there, desperate for affiliates who can bring them new customers. And you have a crowd of enthusiasts who trust you. But remember, your success depends on your readers and subscribers trusting you. You first job is always to provide interesting and useful content. That’s how you create trust.
4) Don’t Ever Take Your Subscribers’ Trust for Granted
If you start treating your list like a cash cow, you’ll burn it out. They’ll stop reading your emails, stop visiting your blog and your most valuable asset – the relationship you have with your subscribers – will be destroyed. Always remember that. Value first. Cash second.
