How to Really Monetize a Blog (Easy 1-2-3 Blog Monetization Strategy)

By |July 30th, 2016|

I get it.

You’ve heard about blogging and decided to have a go yourself. All you have to do is post regularly, wait for some traffic, stick some ads on it along with the odd affiliate link, and then the money starts rolling in.

Right?

Sort of. It could work. Well, at least to some extent.

Let’s just say while you’ll probably earn something (eventually), the money won’t exactly be rolling in.

The truth is, this model only achieves a fraction of what your blog could earn if it was monetized more effectively.

Worse, with changes in the way we all access the web, any income you might achieve when using this model is only going down. (More on this below…)

But… if you want to know how to monetize a blog the right way, and maximize your earnings from it (rather than bring in just pocket change along with an unhealthy dose of disillusionment), read on.

10 Sure-Fire Ways to Convert Blog Visitors into Opt-In Leads

By |July 22nd, 2016|

I won’t beat around the bush. One of the essential keys for blogging effectively and profitably is to be able to convert the traffic your blog attracts into opt-in leads.

Get this wrong, and you’ll struggle to make blogging work.

But by converting as many visitors as possible into opt-in leads, you can:

  • Build trust and credibility through more content and continual follow-up.
  • Encourage them back to your site repeatedly, further building the relationship.
  • Convert them over time into customers for your business (presuming you’re monetizing your blog properly).

Look at your blog and make sure there are conversion points that will in essence turn every post into a landing page.

Build Your List With Content Upgrades: On Your Blog… And Beyond!

By |February 29th, 2016|

Want a more powerful way to convert visitors to your blog into leads for your business? How about a 300% to 785% improvement in conversion rates?

Welcome to the world of content upgrades…

In brief, it means offering more value to the visitor  – say in the form of a relevant download – in exchange for their email address.

But content upgrades aren’t just for your blog…

Content upgrades also work when integrated into content published on other platforms across the web.

In fact, thanks to the often higher engagement levels you get on these other content platforms, this can be even more effective. Yet few if any are really doing this right now…

I’ll share more on this below! But first…

Here’s quick summary of what you’ll learn here:

  • What content upgrades are: What they are and how they benefit you (it’s not just for list building there are some other advantages I can practically guarantee you won’t be aware of)…
  • The results to expect: I’ll share some of my own results, as well as those from other business owners (some of these you’ll find surprising)…
  • How to create content upgrade bonuses: Some examples of bonuses you can offer as content upgrades, and vital things to think about when creating them so they bring you maximum advantage, even after someone has opted in your list…
  • The mechanics: How to actually implement them on your blog – and on other content around the web – including how to deliver the content upgrades to new opt-ins. I’ll cover some easy ways to get you started… and, for the more advanced, not so easy (but more powerful!).
  • Ramping up results: What you need to do long-term to optimize your results from content upgrades. (Do this right, and you could double or even triple their effectiveness.)

Comprehensive? I’d say so…

Let’s dive straight in.
