Growing your email list is essential for any successful business or blog. Your email list is a group of your biggest fans that you can email directly any time you want, whenever you have something to say. Instead of posting a message on your website or social media and hoping your audience sees it, you can get your message straight into their inboxes. Emails are also more personalized; sending a loyal customer an email to announce a sale will make them more likely to check it out and buy. In fact, consumers who purchase products through email spend 138% more than those that don’t receive email offers.
Google Analytics is an important tool for any website owner. Whether you’re running an eCommerce store, you’re a small business owner, or you’re a part-time blogger, you need to know how much traffic you’re getting to your website and how those visitors are interacting with your site.
Through the help of the internet, launching a business is becoming more and more feasible. It doesn’t take much more than a domain, blog and hard work to get started. Having a product or two to sell doesn’t hurt, either. Long gone are the needs for expensive loans and investors to fund an even more expensive brick-and-mortar establishment.
Creating a product is an important phase in the lifespan of an online business. It helps you transition from a blog that relies on income generated from other businesses to a self-sustaining business in complete control of its own destiny. You’ve worked hard publishing content, promoting that content, building your following on social media and growing your email list. All of that has helped you increase the amount of traffic your site sees as well as the amount of “raving fans” you have. Now, it’s time to reap the benefits of all of that hard work.
Every blog should have the same set of essential pages no matter which niche they’re in. These are typically the Home, Blog, About and Contact pages. However, there a couple of additional pages most blogs neglect to add to their websites despite how useful they can be in providing value to readers and increasing conversions. The first is the Start Here page, but that’s not what this post is about. The page we’ll be covering in this post is the Resources page.
Blogging is a lucrative business, even as popularity in video marketing and podcasting are on the rise. It also happens to be the one of the oldest and most popular forms of content marketing. This is due to how effective it’s been for small and big-time blogs alike as well as how cheap it is compared to other forms of marketing. These are probably a few of the reasons why you want to start a blog yourself, but how do you become successful as a blogger? That’s what we’re going to explore in this post.
Blogging and email marketing go hand in hand. It’s the most effective way to turn the casual visitors who scroll through your website into leads who may potentially become customers at some point down the line. Convincing your readers to leave your website to follow you on Facebook or Twitter isn’t easy, and email marketing allows you to create a more relaxed, personal and intimate environment for you and your readers to communicate through than social media does.
Building a website, writing posts, promoting content and taking care of everything else in your business can be hectic. It can even feel never ending at times. All the same, things can come to a grinding halt when you can’t figure out what to write about. That’s what this post is about.
There are many ways to make money blogging, but generating revenue as a new blogger can be difficult despite this. You’ve heard of the thousands upon thousands of dollars other bloggers have generated from ebook and course sales, but you’re having trouble keeping up with a consistent publishing schedule let alone finding the time or resources to complete an ebook or course. That’s why affiliate marketing is such a popular option for new and growing blogs.
Traffic is the most essential component of a successful blog. You can have the most beautifully built website filled with subtle yet highly-effective incentives to get visitors to subscribe to your email list or buy your products, but none of it means a thing if you can’t get people on your website in the first place. When it comes to making money online, everything boils down to traffic, and one of the leading ways to increase traffic to your site is through the magic of content marketing.
