In the last chapter, I shared with you the need to create an online portfolio, particularly a blog. One of the advantages to owning and operating a blog is that you can monetize it. In other words, you can devise various methods to generate an income by simply having a blog. You may recall that I reference byRegina.com and Dale Partridge in the previous segment. Both bloggers have used their platform to create a steady stream of income, and so can you. In this chapter, I want to provide some suggestions on ways to use your blog to help you increase your finances, so let’s begin.
Many bloggers have written about blogging as a business, and for the most part, I believe some of them are seriously making a profit from this platform. Some ways to monetize your blog include using:
It wasn’t until the end of 2015 that I decided to begin my blog. In fact, I had tried numerous times to create one that would interest others; but each one flopped until this year. The LiyahAmore Publishing blog is doing really well now because I decided to not only use the blog to host my articles, but to also create a place for other writers to showcase their talents. We now have a team of Contributing Writers who produce between 15-20 articles each week. As a result of sharing the articles from my platform, I have been able to generate interest in my professional services as a writer and editor; and my current subscription list is under 70 readers. In spite of this number, those who visit the site on a weekly basis average to about 750 individuals each week. This is just after having the blog for about four months. My goal for 2016 is to have 5,000 subscribers and at least 2,500 visitors each week. And the key is to start somewhere and build upon what you have. Maximize your potential and your services by offering readers free content that is useful to them and to your business.
Another unique way that you can monetize your blog is to create e-Books, e-Course, and other online products for readers to purchase. I am a strong advocate for self-publishing because I believe it is something that anyone can do with the right team and the right content. In case you are not already convinced of its profitability, here are seven reasons why you as a writing entrepreneur should self-publish books as another way to monetize your blog.
