Last week I answered a very interesting question.
The question – When should I start selling from my blog?
Listen to This Episode
It's a question that a lot of bloggers ask, especially if they are seriously trying to build an online business.
I defined selling as “helping someone by guiding them to the perfect solution to their problem”, and with that definition in mind, today I attack an even more interesting topic – the HOW!
Knowing when to sell is one thing. Knowing how to do it is where the rubber meets the road.
Fortunately, with blogging there are many ways to do this and to do it well. In this episode, I discuss 10 different ways.
My 10 ways
- Write helpful articles
- Create tutorial videos
Use your email list
- Use banners
- Create a resources page
- Do webinars
- Reach out and speak to people
- Put up an eCommerce store
- Create a free downloadable resource
- Use call to actions in videos
In the episode, I elaborate on each of these points, but also give specific examples to help you really understand how they can help you sell from your blog more effectively.
So go ahead, listen, and enjoy!
