People start blogs for many different reasons. It may be to get something off your chest, to wax lyrical about a subject or subjects close to your heart, to reach out and find like-minded individuals, to expose your latent copy writing skills to a broader audience, or for any number of other reasons.
You may not have started a blog to generate income, whether it be a primary income or a supplementary one, however it is not a crime to make money from the fruits of your labors. And assuming that your blog has generated a dedicated following and has a steady flow of traffic, there is no reason why you cannot monetize your blog and generate a little or maybe a lot of extra cash. After all, in these tough economic times, every extra penny comes in handy.
There are numerous ways to monetize your blog, many of which revolve around advertising targeted at your dedicated followers. Your followers usually exhibit a common trait or traits that can be targeted by advertisers with a product or products that will potentially appeal to their tastes.
Data can be maddening. Like Play-Doh, it can be molded into a variety of shapes and sizes and can resemble whatever the creator wants it to resemble. Let me explain.
Imagine you’re a salesman and you have only one hour to sell your product (and you can’t divide that hour) to a roomful of potential customers. You can choose any day of the week, any time of day or night. If you don’t have any further information, it’s pretty hard to decide when to do your selling. You’ll probably just follow all the other salesmen.
But I’ve got some data to give you. I know that the room with your potential customers is fullest on Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m. Does that help?
What if I also told you that while Wednesday from 1 to 4 p.m. provides the most potential clients, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. provides the highest percentage of those who are willing and ready to buy? On Saturday the room is noticeably less full (of both salesmen and potential customers), but the likelihood of a sale is much greater.
When would you sell? Note: There are no right answers…or wrong ones.
I stood in the hills of Le Plan de la Tour, in Provence, France, just a short drive from Saint-Maxime and 20-minute ferry to Saint-Tropez. I looked over the beautiful vineyard that sat just steps from the small cottage my wife and I were renting with another couple for a week last October. The air had the perfect morning chill that required only your most comfortable sweatshirt, but implied that the day would be beautiful and warm, as it seemed every day must be in such a beautiful place. I could only imagine the stories that each grape held about its journey from vine to glass.
Although I’ve had the great fortune to travel to southern France, I don’t know much about wine. I know that there’s red, white, and my wife likes a good Riesling. But I do have a special place in my heart for the wine we drank that week in France, celebrating good food, friends and conversation. Of course it’s highly unlikely that the wine from the local vineyard in Plan de la Tour tastes exponentially better than whatever I could find at the liquor store down the road, but without the story, it’s just not as special.
That’s my personal story. But don’t think it has nothing to do with content marketing. It’s stories just like this one that have allowed one man to sell millions of dollars of wine over email.
When sales slump due to a slow economy, a business owner’s first inclination is often to cut the marketing budget. After all, one has fixed costs and cash flow can be irregular. But marketing should be the last activity you eliminate or you risk an even faster downward spiral. Advertising your business and attracting new customers should be an ongoing process, and there are many things you can do that cost absolutely nothing. In these times money might be tight but the need for revenue is continuous, here are just a few suggestions.
Become the expert
Submit articles related to your business to the local paper, trade journals and professional organization’s newsletters. Choose a topic that reflects your expertise on the subject and make sure your business is mentioned. You might also find a website that may be interested in letting you host a guest column. Whenever you get published, make copies and send them to all your current and potential customers.
Be a great public speaker
Professional meeting planners are always looking for presenters and workshop leaders for conferences. Research contact names in the Directory of Meeting Planners or start with your local Chamber of Commerce or Rotary Club. If, like most people, you dread the thought of public speaking, join your local Toastmasters club; this is also a great way to meet potential customers. When you do get the opportunity to make a presentation, be sure to collect business cards for a drawing to win a book or other prize related to your business.
