How to get paid in full for your work.
I think its about time for you and I to cash in on our potential, don’t you ?
We all have our challenges in life . Over the last year my wife Jen has been seriously ill ( she has Multiple Sclerosis ) and whilst she has recently experienced an almost miraculous recovery, I’ve had to take my foot off the moneymaking throttle.
So with less money in the bank, now has never been a better time to launch a mission to help every reader here to create a worthwhile income from their existing talents.
Frankly, that way we all get paid.
Here at my little blog I’ve never really asked anyone for anything in the way of money; whilst that’s a good way to build a trusting audience it would be a shame for me not to earn a penny from all the good advice I’ve dished out through Bootstrap Cafe and my previous personal blogs some of you have followed over the last five years.
How to get paid in full online
Don’t worry this won’t be some sort of making money online ‘Guru’ exercise, just a few words of common sense.
Over the years I’ve spent thousands of hours ( over ) analysing various marketing and lifestyle design blogs, very few of which I follow now.
Recently I read an interesting post by Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income
I’ve watched Pat build up an incredibly lucrative business online in the last few years. I highly recommend you visit SPI and check out what Pat has been up to lately.
What interested me was that Pat publishes his monthly income reports, the last of which stood at $98,639.65 not too shabby and a huge credit to Pats hard work, consistency and bravery.
Somehow from Pats latest post I stumbled into another blog Entrepreneuronfireby John Lee Dumas . What was interesting is that at the top of the site last months income was $241,492.00
.. Interesting ..
So what’s stopping me from doing the same ?
A quick scan of the two aformentioned blogs yielded a couple of immediately useful points .
Pats blog is IMO the prettiest, very streamlined.
EOF is more cluttered but immediately sells more stuff.
This extends to the “Start Here” post on each blog, a very important post or page on any blog or website.
Pat promotes webhosting ( pays well ) then focuses on the email opt in ( perfect ) .
Mr. Dumas promotes webhosting, immediately followed by whole load of other stuff. Man, this guy isn’t shy of asking to be paid, and why shouldn’t he? He offers a great resource.
Listen up !
The other difference is that EOF primarily posts podcasts , which are a faster and more impactful way of communicating.
These podcasts tend to be guest interviews with many different stories from many different personalities. Good work.
So I’ll wrap this up. Expect me to be following suit.
Whilst I don’t need a huge income, I’m sure I can usefully employ the above strategies to make more rapid gains in key knowledge for my audience here, which means more money for me.
There I’ve said the ‘M’ word .
So, do you use these strategies on your site or blog , or if you don’t would you like to get paid by doing so ? Let’s hear you .
