Maybe it's the thrill of writing something that could potentially go viral, or maybe they've just been bitten by the blogging bug. Either way, there are plenty of bloggers out there who write specifically to entertain and bring a smile to someone's face.
But this type of blogging is generally more for fun than for profit.
To make money with your blog, you’ll want to focus on keyword phrases and questions your target audience is actively searching for.
When you help people solve...
When it comes to marketing your business, there’s a lot to think about. Why invest in content curation? Let’s talk through some of the benefits.
First, content curation must be a piece of a larger content marketing strategy. Still, need to pull a plan together? Check out the Hubspot guide listed at the end of this article to get started laying out a content marketing strategy. (Did we curate a useful resource within a curation post? Yep. So meta.)
If you’re already...
Emojis aren’t just for friends; they’re the ultimate magnet for capturing your customers’ attention, increasing user engagement, and even helping to close sales.
The funny thing is that most businesses think emojis are best left to 16-year old girls:
“We want to maintain a professional appearance to our customers, which is why we will never use emojis in any of our communications,” said the out-of-touch company executive to the marketing team struggling to...
This isn’t about selling t-shirts, but rather the lesson we can learn from t-shirt sellers that will put money in our pocket before creating the product.
When you sell shirts on T-Spring, you’re not committed to investing any money until you have the orders in hand.
Let’s say your goal is to sell 50 t-shirts at $15 apiece. You advertise on social media, and buyers commit to purchasing the actual shirts. But until you reach the 50 order mark, or whatever number you’ve...
Have I told you lately how much I LOVE recurring income?
Here’s a brief case study about a guy who has not one, but FOUR different newsletters that he puts out twice per month.
These are super simple newsletters that contain all the latest stuff he’s found on the internet about the topics.
How in the world does he find all the latest news, articles, blog posts, stories, video clips, photos, and so forth?
Yup, it’s that easy.
He creates a dozen or so Google...
Headlines are the "make or break," "do or die" piece of your content. Think of all the times you've scanned title after title before clicking on the headline that stopped your scroll.
73% of people admit to skimming blog posts, while only 27% consume them thoroughly. Without a compelling headline, your content won’t receive the eyes it deserves.
But what exactly are headline grabbers? And how do you write one that stands out among the black-and-white sea of copy monotony? Most...
This will only work if you like to write emails and create products, or whether you're able to outsource email composing and product development.
But this is so straightforward and clean; I thought it's worth mentioning.
There is a gal I know who never, actually promotes affiliate merchandise to her list. She just won't do it.
Rather, she only promotes her products.
Every day she writes and sends out a new email to her list.
Then when she is done marketing that one, she'll proceed to another...
You can add a super easy micro-recurring membership to your income in about 30 minutes, start to finish.
This assumes you already have some sort of product you’re selling as well as the ability to do a ‘bump’ upsell on the order form or create an upsell page.
A bump upsell is where you add a product to your order page with a tick box. The customer clicks the box to add the item to their order, and that’s it – it’s added with one click.
If your payment...
I'm always amazed at how marketers think free content and paid articles are two entirely different things. That fact is, your most successful blog posts and newsletter articles can make you more money than many of the products you've promoted.
The key is to pay attention to how your content is received.
One can attract the most attention when people comment on and forward the posts.
A little 200-word article that gets great feedback is trying to tell you that you...
Allow Me to preface this by Alerting you that the Best Selling instrument in all of the world is not the worldwide web, sales letters or revenue videos, or word of mouth.
It is a story.
Stories market like nothing else since We're hard wired to hear and love tales. It is in our bodies. Think about a crude guy coming back from a search and telling everybody in the camp that a saber tooth tiger murdered bob's narrative in the northeast valley.
Do you think anybody would venture...
