You know what’s tougher than having a blog with decent traffic? Monetizing it consistently. Most bloggers are probably afraid to say this out loud, but they spend a lot of their waking hours racking their brains trying to solve the big puzzle of blog profitability. The short answer is having a high click through rate on ad on your blog, which lead to increased sales and profit.
It happens to the best of bloggers. You produce stellar content that’s helpful and easy to read. You even publish a blog post a week – or more – to prove you’re serious about blogging. You genuinely care about your audience. But sometimes, despite doing everything by the book, the traffic’s a dud.
Admit it, you’ve cursed the blogging game in the past. That’s understandable. Because with all the myriad of tasks involved, it does take a toll on you. For each post that you’ll ever write, you come up with some research and ensure it’s worth your while; then you compose your thoughts and finally write that 1,000+ words article.
You’re a blogger, and of course you love it. But let’s be honest – sometimes, blogging can take a toll on you. As a blogger, you have an unending list of things to do in a day. Be it coming up with article ideas, curating content, researching keywords or writing a blog post; it seems like bloggers are always super-busy and some are rather burnt out with the process.
Social media can be confusing. Keeping up with the multiple social channels; posting original content and coming up with a social media plan that generates leads, engagement, revenue or some other tangible goal can make you feel like pulling out your hair. However, studies show that social media marketing works. In 2014, investment in social media is a necessity, and no longer a luxury.
You've seen it with your own eyes. Social is going Visual Social and it's about time you started creating and sharing some cool visuals for your brand or clients. It's natural for humans to immediately pay attention to visuals. When blogging first became popular, people posted longish posts of about 1000 words.
Let’s face it. Social media marketing is hard work. Sometimes you feel like a one legged man in a kickboxing competition. Over the last few years it has become an integral part of your business and marketing. You use social media to source leads, keep in touch with your old clients and even serve your current customers. The only problem? The Internet never sleeps.
Do you ever feel like everyone in your industry is doing the same thing? They have the exact same message as you; the same style and tone and even their websites look eerily similar to yours? If you're doing the same marketing strategies as everyone else – sending similar newsletters each Thursday and the same, rehashed points of view in each newsletter for example – you won't stand out.
