Everybody wants to boost their blogging sales but few have cracked the blogging income code. 81% of bloggers never make more than $100 USD during their online careers. Why? The masses of bloggers ignore a few basic, simple tips that seem alien to virtually all struggling bloggers. Even if this failing lot seizes and follows these tips they tend to lack the patience to see each strategy through.
If you want to increase your blogging sales, persistently apply each one of these 5 tips.
1: Grow Your Email List
Grow your email list to make money through your blog. Email marketing is the most convenient form of both marketing your blog and profiting through your blog. After spending a few minutes setting up an email campaign you can email your latest blog post or premium offering to a large, targeted list of readers quickly and easily.
Said readers receive your blog post in their email inbox, producing both traffic and sales on demand. Consider using a pop-up form, a blog sidebar opt-in form and a slider form. Add a little PUSH notification pop up for good measure.
2: End All Posts with a Clear Call to Action
End every blog post with a clear-cut, simple and direct call to action related to your premium products and services. Program readers to buy based on your mix of persistence and full clarity in the business side of your blog. Most bloggers feel uncomfortable, awkward or pushy asking readers to buy at the conclusion of a blog post. Top earners have no issues asking for the buy with every blog post. Remember; it’s only money, just a means of exchange. Let readers know how you can help them. Be clear. Call your audience to hire you or buy your stuff at each post end to increase your blogging sales.
3: Don’t Be Shy to Ask for the Email Buy
After sharing a valuable blog post or video, ask your subscribers to buy your products or to hire you for your services. Don’t be shy about asking for the buy. Let readers know of your premium products and services. Get clear. Boost your sales. Never hesitate to follow up with 1, 2, 3 or more calls to action to buy something in future emails. Some readers may need to be reminded to buy whatever you have to offer.
4: Open Multiple Streams of Income
Open multiple streams of income to boost your blog sales.
- Blog coaching
- Blog consulting
- Freelance writing
- Writing and self-publishing eBooks on Amazon Kindle
- Co-creating audiobooks on Amazon, iTunes, and Audible
- Selling paperbacks on Amazon
- Selling sponsored posts
- Selling advertising space
- Affiliate marketing
Establish different income channels to steadily increase your overall cash flow. Never rely on a single blogging income stream. In a world of change, this is online suicide. Add one income stream every 3-6 months. Learn the stream. Practice working the stream. Earn through the stream.
5: Buy Products to Cut Your Learning Curve
If you have made pennies or literally a few dollars through blogging, invest your money in a product that can help you make hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of dollars or more. Pro bloggers spend money on their blogging education.
Bloggers cannot build full-time, pro blogging careers on free blog posts alone. Pay your online tuition. Increase your blogging sales. Buy products or hire bloggers for their services to cut your learning curve and to make money through your blog.
