It’s cool to be alive to experience another fantastic year of business exploits and all round success with your blog.
I don’t know what your expectations are, but I’m convinced you want to make more money, connect with savvy persons and initiate a wealthy system.
Ride with me as I share the 5 fail-proof strategies to boost your blogging income in 2012. I’m grateful to Joey for this privilege and I admonish you to read every single word in this page.
Often times, the extra income you need is looking for a viable idea, and that idea is right under your nose. Situations may try to blur your goals, but don’t give in to these threats.
You can achieve anything you set your mind on no matter how difficult it seems. Now, enough of the motivation, let’s leave that to Brian Tracy and Talk about enhancing blogging income.
1. Launch a Valuable Product
You got that right, launch a valuable product.
It might not be an e-book or short report; it could be a mobile app, a contest or plugin to enhance bloggers life. I could recall what happened in 2009 when I launched my first contest; I got 1,039 targeted visitors and made massive sales with product recommendations.
Anything that can wow your readers’ life is ideal this year.
They’ve known you for months, or even years, before you realize what’s happening, they would switch over to another blog where new trends are unveiling. Nonetheless, when releasing any product to the market, ensure it’s helpful (forgive my cliché) but it’s vital to your success. If you can’t help your readers, don’t bother launching anything.
2. Be At The Forefront Of Hot Trends
A lot of bloggers are way behind schedule and that’s why they’re broke.
Successful bloggers keep abreast of hot trends. Hot trends are the secret recipe to cashing in before everyone does. There are really no secrets to life and making money, but getting to the Station before the train, makes you special and there is reward for punctuality.
This year, being at the top of your niche news-wise is paramount. Several new developments are happening right now. Google+, algorithm updates, metric testing, Facebook timeline, twitter streamlining, linkedIn sleek connections and all manner of social media developments are taking place.
If you consistently churn out articles on these hot trends, and build few quality backlinks, it could increase organic traffic to your blog because you would rank highly on Google homepage. What about writing short reports about Google+ and selling to your readers, will they buy? Of course they’ll if and only if you’ve good marketing character.
3. Marketing Marathon Strategy
When I was in High School, I participated in the yearly Marathon race.
It takes decision, perseverance and sense of direction to win a marathon race. Speed is vital but doesn’t apply in all spheres of marathon. Fact is: every contestant is running to win a prize. Isn’t that what blogging is all about?
This year, decide to win a prize for your hard work. Running a blog is not an easy task – if it’s easy for you, well I find it slightly hectic. Keeping up with the daily posts, social media sharing and networking takes time and sacrifice, just like in Marathon.
But guess what? The efforts you put into blogging would eventually pay-off if you don’t give up. Those that wait and explore the more, will definitely receive a golden crown from Mother Nature. Well, not from me, but from a source that’s invisible, but rewards every man (blogger) according to his works.
4. Are You A Suicidal Blogger? Stop it
I came across an e-book today, it’s so explicit of who a suicidal blogger is. Are you eager to know? First, suicidal bloggers are trading on dangerous grounds. If they don’t change course and seek for help, their years of hard work may soon diminish and get drowned in the red sea.
A suicidal blogger is that person who owns, receives targeted traffic, have strong marketing chutzpah, an active social media user but “DOES NOT BUILD EMAIL LIST.”
You got that right. You’re committing blogging suicide if your mailing list is 0. You can’t trust Google to deliver free traffic to your blog consistently, at least not anymore. Their weird panda doesn’t want to show mercy at all. A lot of sites with quality contents and natural off page links were infected by panda updates. Every blog is a potential panda casualty.
But when you build a responsive email list, you could drive avalanche of free buyer traffic at the push of a button. If the money isn’t in the list, where else is it?
5. Become A Corporate Broker
Some people call it consultant, but in the context of what we’re talking about, being a corporate broker could earn you some decent brokerage (commission). What’s your role?
It’s pretty straight-forward and if you own a functional blog, half of what you need to do is already done. The power of web marketing is obvious in offline world. Corporate firms and small business entrepreneurs are looking for experts to bring them online and expose their brands to the right eye balls.
That’s where you come in. Get the project and ensure you understand the pros and cons – bill the clients (corporate firms and entrepreneurs) and simply outsource the project to capable hands.
For instance, if you land a writing project and you’re not a freelance writer or lack the inclination – hire a freelance writer. When the job is done, send full payments and keep the balance. In essence, you’ll be making money as a broker and that money is termed “brokerage.”
