Want to make money with your blog? Perhaps you set up your blog with that intention, but you’re disappointed, because to date you haven’t earned a cent.
Chances are that you’re not using your blog to best effect. If you want to earn an income, then you need to set that as your goal. Top bloggers are earning five figures from their blogs each month: they do that by selling.
You can make money today when you learn to sell. Here’s how, in five steps.
1. The Web Is a Giant Marketplace. Join in, and Sell
The Web is a marketplace. People look for information, and they buy. To make money with your blog you need something to sell and traffic. Over time, you’ll sell money things from your blog, but start today with just one thing.
2. Chose Something You Want to Sell
What will you sell?
Once your blog is established, and you’re getting traffic each day, you can sell advertising. The more traffic you get, the more you can charge. However, most new blogs don’t get enough traffic to make an income from advertising. You need to sell a product.
Choose a product which has an affiliate program. There are many affiliate networks with hundreds of thousands of products you could profitably sell. ClickBank is a popular network with great digital products; they’re easy to sell, and (depending on your location) you get money paid into your bank account each week.
Find an affiliate product, sign up for the affiliate program, and start selling.
Tip: Choose an affiliate product you actually use. It’s very hard to promote a product convincingly if you don’t know much about it.
3. Write a Review
Next, help the people who are searching for the product you’re selling by writing a review of it. Describe the product, how it performs in use, and its good and bad points. Be honest in your review.
Tip: Use the word “review” in your blog post. People usually search for reviews using terms like “[product] review.”
4. Use the Social Networking Sites to Get Traffic
If you’re not familiar with social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and StumbleUpon, start using them today. They can bring you traffic 24 hours a day, and they’ll start a flow of traffic to your review as soon as you post it.
Repeat the steps from 2 to 4 above. You’ll soon be joining the ranks of top bloggers, now you know how to sell from your blog.
