Blogging Like a Marketer [3 Things To Do To Actually Make Money Off Of Blogging]
The concept is simple to make money off of blogging…
It does take some work in the beginning, but with these three simple changes that most bloggers fail to miss (including myself at one time), you will start to see yourself making at least $1000 a week.
That is a bold claim for someone who might have never made more than $1000 in a single month, but when you read this entire post, you will have a mindset shift that will make you see that making money off of blogging is about finding the right people (buyers) and giving them what they want.
Here are 3 simple things you can do to make money off of blogging.
1. Think like a marketer who blogs. Bloggers blog about whatever is relevant. Marketers who blog LOOK for buyers and get their blog in front of them.
See the difference?
If you’re not blogging about something that is related to a buyer’s interests, who are you blogging to? Use Amazon to find buyers and get in front of them by providing relevant information they are looking for.
Case in point…
Everyone pays taxes, don’t they?
To make money off of blogging, write a post about why your tax software is the best. Giving clear reason why you will establish yourself as an expert.
Whoever your blog is geared towards, go make money off of blogging by blogging about what people want to buy.
2. Syndicate, syndicate, syndicate. Blogging alone will not make you money. And quite frankly, SEO is a slow process. If you want to speed up the algorithm, find ways to syndicate your content. The reason certain posts make it to the top of Google is through SEO and social syndication.
Besides sharing in Facebook groups, engage with other bloggers through BlogEngage, commenting, and putting your blogs in other Web 2.0 forms.
Here are different ways to spread your blog around and make money off of blogging.
- YouTube (72 hours of video watched per minute)
- SlideShare (powerpoint presentation)
- And much more
Do not confine yourself to only blogging? In order to make money off of blogging, you have to give people what they want in the form the way it.
2. Build a list.
Why is building a list so important?
Well, although this isn’t is the make money off of blogging category, having a list allows you to develop a relationship with your list, gain their trust, and sell to them. Imagine having a list that believes every word you say, and will BUY on your command.
…they might not buy from you again.
Email your list, everyday sending them relavant information about products and services or about a new blog post, and establish yourself as the expert (who will not steer them in the wrong direction). Your list will take your advice wherever you take them. It’s a lot of responsibility, can you handle it?
Between the 3 suggestions and Adsense, you can expect to make at least $1000 a week promoting products and services that you believe in.
Here is what to do next. Evaluate your blog and think how are you going to make money off of blogging. Who are you going to target and market to?
Next, find where the buyers are and get in front of them with valuable blog posts that solves their problem and makes you the trusted authority.
Last, get an autoresponder and mail to your list everyday, developing a relationship with them like you would a friend.
And this is how you make money off of blogging.
