But before we get into that, I want to show you that there are plenty of other ways to benefit and profit (directly and indirectly) from your blog. Read on…
Establish Yourself as an Expert
No matter what you’re selling or what your business model is, a blog can help you achieve more because it helps establish you as an expert.
Whereas people use to publish books to showcase their expertise, now most anyone can publish a blog. And once that blog becomes popular, the blogger’s status is further elevated in the niche.
And that’s NOT all.
The more good content you post, the more your readers start to trust you… and that indirectly leads to more sales.
Plus if you allow your readers to interact with you (by allowing comments), that further strengthens your bond with them. End result? A more profitable blog.
Get Publicity Opportunities
Some people use blogs to raise their status in a niche. And some people use this elevated status as a springboard to more opportunities, such as free publicity and book deals.
Example: The big book publishers like to see when one of their newly signed authors has a platform. By platform I mean a waiting audience. A blog is one such platform. If you build a popular blog and then go after a book deal, you can bet the publishers will take note.
So far you’ve discovered three main ways to benefit from your blog.
Tomorrow you’ll learn a bunch more, including ways to directly profit… so stay tuned!
