How many times do you find yourself browsing social media and hopping from one site to the next. Lots of times you’ll find some pretty cool blogs. I do this all the time and I have every intention of trying to remember to go back to them. Sometimes I’ll bookmark them, but the chances of my ever digging through my huge list of browser bookmarks are minimal. Most of the people that come across your blog will do the same thing. That’s not a very effective way to grow a loyal blog list.
It’s crucial to get blog readers on your email list as soon as you can. Once you do that, you can keep them coming back. You can send out a quick little email inviting them to read your latest blog post.
You can also share your social media posts and profiles with your list and grow your social reach with a simple email that invites them to interact with you on your Facebook Page for examples. Always have your social media info at the bottom of every email that you send out.
With every email you send out, your readers get to know you more. Ideally, that means they’ll also like and most importantly trust you more. And once your readers know, like, and trust you, they’ll gladly take you up on any product recommendations you make to them.
Most bloggers want to learn how to monetize their posts. The best way is to get your readers on your list, build that relationship and then make offers via email. You don’t have to be aggressive or spammy about it. Instead, share some helpful information, give them some tips and then invite them to learn more or implement it with the product you’re recommending.
It’s crucial to your blogging success that you focus on building an email list first. It will enable you to bring readers back to your blog whenever you’ve published a new post. Having a list also allows you to grow your social media reach by inviting readers to connect with you on relevant social media channels.
Finally, staying in touch regularly via email gives you a chance to build a relationship with your audience. When you’re at that point, it becomes appropriate to make offers for products and services and make some money from your blog posts and emails.
Follow these tips and you’ll slowly but surely begin to monetize your blog.
