WordPress Blogging Tip – One of the Best Ways to Make Money With Your WordPress Blog
What is the best way to monetize my WordPress blog? The answer is simple but not many people think of it.
The answer is by not selling! How can I make money without selling? An excellent question and here’s how:
Refer people. Blog about what you want people to buy. Answer their questions and speak to their pain. But only talk about the product and what it does – do not mention it yet.
Remember – blog about it. A good way to do that is to ask a question and then answer it. If you are selling a gardening book, think of questions (or better yet ask your community what their question is), write the question in the post and then answer it. You can ask and answer several questions in one post.
Speak to their pain – tell them you know how they a story about what you did that didn’t work – build your relationship through your story. Your readers will know that you are a real person who does make mistakes and they will identify with you. This is part of getting your readers to know, like and trust you.
At the end of your post, give a call to action. Remember – only one call to action per post and make it quite specific. Put your product on its own sales page (a page within your WordPress blog) and send your readers to the page. A sales page should give your readers one choice to make – buy or leave. If you try to sell in your post, there is too much distraction. Your readers can scroll to other posts, become involved with everything in the sidebar, and forget about your product. So send them to a page where there is one choice to make.
