If you have a blog and want to improve its production this upcoming year then pay attention. We are going to go over a few tips that will help you leverage your blog for more revenue.
Isn’t that the main reason you have a blog? If it’s a standalone blog then your goal is to make money from it, and if it’s a business blog the goal is to use it as a tool to acquire more customers. So, either way you look at it you benefit greatly when your blog performs at the highest possible level.
And with that being said, we are going to dive into some practical tips that you can roll out and benefit from. The aren’t difficult — they just require you to be proactive.
Set a Consistent Publishing Schedule
One of the fundamental keys to blogging is to be consistent. This has always been the case, but people still don’t stick to this simple thought process. When you build up an audience they want to read more content and if you are posting at random times or go weeks without posting new content then that audience will disconnect.
You don’t have to have a bunch of fancy features, just good content that is published on a consistent basis, like the strategy used here. Also, let your readers know when you are posting. If it’s weekly, something like, “New content every Monday at 6am” will help to create a stronger connection with your audience.
Find Other Monetization Options (Affiliate Offers)
Display ads just don’t pay out like they once did and now with so many people using ad blocker tools it has forced many blogs to look for other revenue opportunities.
“One of the easiest options is to find a high paying affiliate offer for a product or service that compliments your blog and one that your audience will be interested in,” says Chris Dziak of Pure Nootropics. Better yet, look for one that is recurring, as this will result in a large monthly income that snowballs.
Focus on List Building
It’s important that you always focus on building your email list. Not only does this allow you to quickly let them know when there is new content posted, but you can also send them offers that advertisers will pay you for.
Like this Neds review blog post for example. By providing this information, their audience is likely to sign up for updates so they receive alerts when new reviews are posted. A Your list can become the most valuable asset that your blog owns.
Consider Introducing Your Own Product or Service
Now, the nice thing about an affiliate offer is that you don’t have to handle the product or service and you don’t have to deal with things like customer service. But if that doesn’t scare you then launching your own product or service might be worth looking into.
Not sure how to create a digital e-course? Consider hiring an outsource development company to handle the research and product creation. There are plenty of resources online that can help you figure out how to create a winning product.
They key is to build your traffic and audience up to a point that you can launch with no additional advertising costs. This can help you scale quickly.
