How to make money blogging with these 10 business tips?

Share

how to make money bloggingMoney blogger means a person who fully knows how to make money blogging. He applies his skills and earns money with his blog.

For me he is the most mature blogger because he accepts the reality from the day one.

Instead of earning no money or a little money and then monetizing quite lately it is better to plan for money from the very beginning.

For this purpose you need to be business minded.

Mind it please; business is not a bad thing.

Doing business is a great service to people.

So proud to be a businessperson while blogging.

It does not mean you become selfish or be unfair to people if you try to earn money with your blog.

What businesses do?

They buy several products from different suppliers and put them at one spot to sell all who need these products individually.

What if we have to buy each product separately directly from its manufacturer?

So always remember the ultimate objective of “almost” all the bloggers is earning money and we should be brave enough to accept it from the very beginning.

I used the word almost because a small quantity of bloggers blog to support their already established business or any offline product.

Here are 10 reasons why bloggers must aim to make big money online

So doing business is a great service to humanity. You do aim to earn money with our blog but another important aim is to serve the people by providing them best products and services to buy with one click.

How to make money blogging with these 10 business tips?

I have a long-term association with a few money bloggers. They are not very famous but are quite well established money bloggers. They do know these 10 ways to make money blogging by selling benefits.

Many of them are from mainstream niche like health, education, fitness, politics, go green because I have also more experience in mainstream niche.

While interacting with them they off and on reveal a few of their 10 business secrets to earn money.

So I have compiled them to make you get more understanding on how to make money blogging.

1. Don’t buy all products for testing them first

You may get this advice more than several times to buy a product and test it before selling at your blog.

But how come one buys each product of quite a higher price if his main source of earning is selling affiliate products.

New products are being introduced quite frequently in the online market of each niche. If someone buys all the products to test them before selling he might have to buy several dozen products in a year to follow this rule.

Business tip # 1

I am not saying you should give an impression as if you have already tested it though you have not tested it.

For this purpose use your contacts. Someone must have tested a given product in your friends circle. So just talk to him in detail and get every detail of it from his practical experience.

Second option is to read all the reviews so far written on a given product. If the product is of a small affiliate you can ask several extra questions to him before selling it at your blog.

2. Don’t show all income sources

Why do you show your earning statement to your readers? You do not mean to teach them how to make money blogging with it.

Actually you publish your earning statement at your blog:

  • To impress your target audience that much huge money you are earning.
  • To motivate them to follow you and buy all products and services from you to earn big as you already are doing.
  • To promote your authority as a successful money blogger

While showing your all sources of earning at your blog you actually forget the fact that simply your readers are not noticing them. Your competitors are equally and very deeply observing your each income report.

So if you have any lucrative source of earning like sales contract of a product of an individual blogger you need to hide it. If that individual blogger is not promoting his offer anywhere in that case you must hide it.

Business tip # 2

Yes it is wrong to tell half truth. But you need not to fully hide that source. You should simply change the name of that source.

For example if you are selling a product of X company so just change the name as Y and don’t mention the brand name of the product. This is called maintaining secrecy and fully allowed in every business.

It is the professional right of a businessperson to hide the legal income source by simply showing the amount of earning. Yes you can show it to any regulatory authority confidentially for audit or tax purpose but not publicize at your blog.

3. Hold a few more lucrative deals

If you get a very lucrative deal to sell affiliate products you must grab it.

If you are already running a massive campaign at your blog to sell another lucrative deal you can hold the latest one.

This is your right to grab as much profitable deals as you can to sell at your blog and hold a few to sell them later.

Business tip # 3

You can ask me if you hold on a very lucrative deal your readers will buy it from somewhere else.

Here you need to be a smart money blogger. Make an announcement about the deal with a little more discount than the one offered by your competitors. In this case you just have to forego your chunk of commission a little.

So your readers will not buy the same from other blogs because they know if they wait for a while they will get more discount on it at your blog. Such announcements you can put at the sidebar of your blog or any other place you consider fit.

how to make money blogging4. Presell or create a need well before selling a product

This is called long-term monetizing strategy. If you are struggling to achieve a minimum traffic level at your blog, don’t engross in it only.

Meanwhile also develop a monetization plan of your blog. If you plan to sell a few affiliate products after sometime, do start creating their need in your contents. Did you get my point? Let’s explain it further.

You initially publish fully optimized contents which bring huge traffic from search engines. Right? If you presell or put demand-creating paragraph for you planned products in your contents, your readers will buy your pre-sold products once you put their ads at your sidebar or write reviews on them subsequently.

Business tip # 4

Here also you may ask me why to create a future-demand of a product that is hot in demand today. It may be replaced by another product tomorrow.

So its solution is you need not to create demand of the brand of a product but simply the benefits of the product. For example don’t promote Hostgator in your initial contents but advise your readers to buy a hosting of features which Hostgator offers. Right?

5. In your interviews skillfully refer your products

If you do blogging seriously and stay in this field your juniors note your presence. After sometime they will try to introduce you at their blogs to benefit their readers from your experiences. Whenever you get an offer for interview from a blogger just check his audience. If more than half of it, is potential audience of your products then accept his offer of interview.

Business tip # 5

Now it ups to you how you sell your products in your replies of interview questions on how to make money blogging.

For this also help your interviewer to develop interview questions with highly searched keywords. Do put the same keywords in your replies also. So eventually once his blog gets huge traffic more people will read your interview and they may also buy your promoted products if you smartly promote them in it.

6. You can almost copy an available product

Blogging is not much vast field. Nor any of the top niche of blogging. People want prompt solutions of their problems. For example in blogging niche what solutions new bloggers want:

So these are four main challenges every blogger with blogging niche faces and wants it solution. So don’t be so philosophical for developing your own product. Stay around these four problems to create a product.

Business tip # 6

You may say that solutions of all of these problems are already available online. I mean there are several products in the market which offers their solutions.

You need to apply your creativity and reshuffle the contents of a given solution and produce them exactly fulfilling the requirements of your readers.

Already available solutions are not developed for your audience specifically. So just alter them to make them best for your readers and sell them with a very impressive name with a lot of fresh thoughts in it.

7. Guide juniors but with a purpose

You are a money blogger not a reformer. You are not in this field to bring a big change in your society. You are in this field to serve the people by teaching them how to make money blogging.

So you can’t solve their problems with simply tips and tricks. Whole life can’t be spent with tricks and tips only. Almost 90 per cent solutions of the problems in life lie in products and services available at a price. So keep this reality in mind while dealing with your target audience.

Business tip # 7

Your junior bloggers of the same niche are also part of your target audience. So do guide them free as much as you can but don’t be ashamed to refer a product to them for solution of their given problem.

Do refer it with your affiliate link and it ups to you either you declare it or not. If it is likely that they may be confused if you mention a link as affiliate you may hide that link. Your purpose is to help them solve their problems. Right.

Think positively if you want to be a money blogger. Never become a philosopher to always be wondering how to make money blogging.

how to make money blogging8. Stay loyal to well-established brands for your needs

If you want to sell a new brand of email marketing service you should not first adopt it before selling it at your blog. Such products keep coming off and on.

Will you also keep changing them for your own use? You must use the most authenticated and well established brands which you are already using.

Business tip # 8

Your readers may ask why you are not using a product which you are selling to them.

Here you should exploit the unique selling point (USP) of the product. What is the USP of many products? Their competitive price or their higher quality obviously with higher price.

In both the cases you can defend by saying that you can’t afford the higher price but want to sell your readers because of its higher number of benefits. If the price is low you can say you can afford a product of higher price that is why you are not using it.

9. Try to strike a deal directly with supplier

Many online middlemen of various suppliers offer you to sell the products of their client.

If they offer less commission even then try to grab such offer. If you become their marketer on long-term basis you can be quite familiar with the supplier directly if your performance is good.

After that if you succeed to impress the supplier he may offer you the deal directly without involving the middlemen. You can get higher commission if you get a direct offer from the supplier.

Business tip # 9

You may ask me if it is fair to kick out the middleman after performing well in a deal. You should not kick him out. If you work smart your supplier will himself do that because a part of the middleman commission will also go into his pocket.

This does not happen if the supplier is a big company but small companies mostly do that as they can easily deal directly with online marketers.

10. Willingly or unwillingly be fair to readers

This is called your USP and the biggest secret of money making.

You can play tricks with suppliers to get maximum commission or other benefits. But you never ever imagine to be unfair to your buyers.

Even you want or don’t want but the only secret of success to become a successful blogger is to be very very fair to your target audience.

Business tip # 10

Your target audience has an ample choice to switch and will not take a minute to buy from someone else because changing an online seller just needs opening of another window to open the blog of your competitor.

This tip is actually the conclusion of this post on how to make money blogging with above business tips. So I need not to write another paragraph to conclude this post.

    Hey MiMuba,

    All the tips are awesome, as far as income report thing is concerned i’d suggest everyone should do it as it is extremely beneficial. I’ve decided to write income reports on my blog from the coming month so that i can grab more audience. Have you checked the last interview i conducted? People are going mad about it. I’m having a mob of visitors on my blog every hour who wants to read that interview because the personality i have introduced on my blog is making more that $14000 each month which is attracting visitors.

    I agree that it could help your competitors to earn more from the same sources but there is a difference between people who start and people who copy. They can’t earn by just copying the same things which you are doing.

      Hi Siraj

      Yes it is good to publish your income report to inspire your readers to follow your way of blogging but we need to hide those sources of income which we have created exclusively for us.

      It is good to know you are getting huge response at your latest interview post. It made me curious to check it and take benefit from it.

      Thanks a lot for sharing your awesome views here.

      Hope to see you again.

    Hi Mi Muba,

    You have shared vital blogging tips on making money with blogs. From the onset of a “business minded-blog” it is important to monetize for success. The how on doing this may be different depending on the kind of business.

    However, I completely agree that we don’t need to drive sharp bargains and supplant others in other to make money from blogging. Once the right strategy is in place and the business offer value then making money would most likely be easy!
    This post was found in kingged.com where it was shared and upvoted for Internet marketers and bloggers.

      Hi Sunday

      If we try to make money blogging in haste or without any business strategy we are doomed to fail as it happens to many bloggers. That is why it is wise to first fully understand what we are going to do and they follow each step properly.

      If we wrongly assume a blog must bring money sooner or later with whatever strategy we follow, maybe we have to shutdown our blog in desperation of not earning a single penny from it.

      Thanks a lot for sharing your wonderful views as always. :-)

      Have a great week.

    Hi Mi,

    So many people could learn a lot from reading your blog.

    You’re point is so well made; if you don’t decide from day one what your purpose is for blogging you’re doomed to fail, much like in business.

    The reality is that I see blogging as extension of my business. I have a purpose, strategies, goals, and objectives for my blog and each blog post.

    Your points bring together for me that it doesn’t matter what you sell, if you’re a business who blogs then you own a business blog.

    If we are not in business, or blogging, to make money then we are either a charity or a hobby.

    I loved your post. You definitely got me thinking about how I need to be more strategic and intentional with my blog.

    I hope you’re having a great start to your week!

      Hi Don
      This I noted for several bloggers. They are widely famous but wasted their initial years just in confusion to either earn or not to earn from their blog.

      Once they decided now their monetization strategy is quite new because it is according to the requirements of today and they have to adjust their overall blogging strategy with it.

      Your point is valid if we don’t take blogging as business or lately take it as we should have taken from the day one we create a lot of mess and fail to come out from it for a long time.

      I am so glad you liked this post as it encourages me a lot if any of my good friends give his honest comments here to help me improve further.

      Thanks a lot for coming by and sharing your wonderful views.

      Have a productive week.

    Hi Mi Muba,

    Informative post indeed :)

    I think you listed out ALL there is to know about how anyone can make money from their blogs. All they have to do is follow your tips as mentioned here.

    Yes, it is certainly tough to try out all the products or services that you write about and unless you have read in detail about them or heard about them from someone, it’s tougher to write about it too. Nevertheless, this is one thing that stops me from writing review or sponsored posts, though I get so many paid offers. Unless I don’t know about the product, how can i promote it or try and sell it. My conscious would never allow it, and I would rather go without earning than to promote things just for moneys sake. I guess I should change, but then I don’t think that would really be me. :)

    Lots to learn from your post, dear friend, and I am sure all those who are into monetizing their business and blogs would love this and your additional tips you’ve added with each point. Great indeed :)

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

      Hi Harleena

      Thanks a lot for your great words. :-)

      My objective is to help newbie bloggers follow these business tips to earn money by working like a businessperson. If they develop a business strategy and stick to it, I am sure earning money will be not much difficult for them.

      I observed many bloggers sell one to two affiliate products every week. It doesn’t mean they first use them and then sell. This point newbie bloggers should note and sell affiliates confidently.

      Many bloggers just focus a few products and try to sell them again and again. They must fully exploit their potential as being internet marketer and sell as much products of their niche as they can.

      Once again thanks a lot for your stopping by and sharing your wonderful views. :-)

      Hope to see you again and again. :-)

      You too have a great week. :-)

      Hi Sasidhar

      If we do a little planning we can easily earn money with a blog interview post. This I am saying after observing many bloggers are doing this very successfully.

      Thanks for coming by and sharing your views here.

    Blogging.

    Making money blogging is treating your blogging page as a business. You are able to make bucks from your page and effort and skills, therefore, think professionally and handle your business properly with passion.

    It’s not worth a dime to buy and test a product first. There are products online that you can try for 1 month free. If you don’t like it, then don’t continue using it. Simple as that. Be wise, be smart.

    I think, showing your income resources are interesting, nevertheless, I believe it is rational if you don’t show it.

    • says

      Hi metz

      This is the basic objective of this post to convince newbie bloggers take blogging as a business. If they do so they won’t be purturbed if one day they don’t get huge number of visitors at their blog. Lackluster is quite natural in every business.

      This is a great idea to first try those products which are available for free for one month. But I observe they are free for one month but they get the payment of second month in advance before we enjoy one free month. :-)

      Thanks a lot for stopping by and sharing your awesome views.

      Have a great day :-)

    Hi Mi Muba,

    First, there is one very thing I like most about your approach to this post and that is – REALITY.

    Lets be honest, I don’t think there is anyone blogging without making an effort to make some money from it either directly or indirectly – like you said above, some companies or individual are blogging to support an existing product or brands.

    Even at that, there is the money factor at the very end of it all.

    Secondly, when I started learning about affiliate marketing, one of the very teachings I used to come across everywhere is “Don’t promote a products you have not used and tested to be good”.

    I keep wondering how could someone like me without such $$$ to buy and test this product make a dime from affiliate marketing? I assume again, Does that mean all these affiliates marketers around spend a fortune buying the products they promotes?

    I soon realize that not everything people preach they practice.

    Thanks for sharing, nice reading Mi Muba.

      Hi Adeshokan

      I am glad you termed the approach of my post very REAL; it shows I succeeded in my effort to avoid bookish approach and put here what I learn practically.

      Yes, if we plan from the beginning to make money from our blog we surely will take blogging as business and think, act and react like a business. A business follows a strategy to achieve his business goals. Bloggers should also act like this.

      To be very frank, I was also earlier following the same way of using a product before selling it. But after buying a handful of products I thought I may have to spend a huge amount for this purpose if I keep following the same way.

      Thanks a lot for stopping by and sharing your very thoughtful comments with deep insight.

      Have a great day. :-)

    Hi Mi,

    Integrating blogging with business.

    It’s a nice idea and great tips for the bloggers who are interested in earning sum of money from their blog. Yes i agree with your point muba, it’s not selfish or unfair if we try to earn money from blogging. For someone, blogging is business and for others it may be a business. What’s wrong with this?

    I am also proud to be a business person while blogging. According to me, blogging is a kind of art, by which we can earn money, earn traffic, earn readers, earn friends, earn more businesses etc… It’s up to you.

    I always recommend amazon for affiliate marketing, even it’s having tough competition, we can go with this. Because, we can get all kind of products which suit your niche and also there is no need for you to purchase the product before selling it through your blog. Before posting the product, we can see many number of customer reviews in amazon, by the help this reviews, we can easily pick up which is best.

    Mentioned here business tips are really awesome and i really love the way of delivering the tips. Thanks for share.

      Hi Raaja

      If newbie bloggers follow your words and take blogging as business from the very beginning they won’t face any desperation if in the beginning no one visits their blog. In the beginning every business receives very small number of customers and then grows its customer base.

      Your comments show you have complete understanding of money blogging and I am sure you will be doing great to achieve your goals as a smart business man with your blog.

      Yes affiliates is one of the most lucrative ways to earn money with your blog. You simply need to have basic concepts of affiliate marketing and your narration shows you do have expertise in your field.

      Thanks a lot for stopping by and sharing your wonderful views.

      Have a great day :-)

    Hi Mi Muba,

    I enjoyed this and #4 really just stood out to me in this one.

    Creating a need is huge! You gain followers creating this need and giving them solutions to the problem before unloading a detailed product of your own.

    This is a perfect tactic that has been around for a long time. Educating an audience is a great way to build trust. That trust will make it much easier to convert your loyal and first time readers to customers!

    Nice one Mi Muba!

      Hi Steven

      You pointed well. To sell a product first we need to create its need. Not just once but keep doing this many times to ultimately sell our product like a hot cake.

      Thanks a lot for sharing your wonderful opinion on an important point of the post.

      Hope to see you again.

  10. says

    Hey Mi Muba,

    You have provided some great tips here about making money blogging. This is something I’m doing, but it’s in a slow process.

    One thing you brought up is to not talk about how much money you’re making. I honestly don’t understand why some bloggers do this. Well maybe I do. It’s to impress their readers which shouldn’t matter. I remember listening to Black Belt Recruiting CD when I was in network marketing. It’s about how to follow up with your prospects over the phone.

    One issue they brought up is when prospects ask you “how much money you make”. The expert replied “It’s not about how much money I make, it’s about what you do?”… and to be honest with you, I was floored LOL…. that was a great answer to me and it’s all about what your visitors do! You’re doing your job as to providing information of what you’re marketer. Either they want it or don’t!

    I also like the idea of pre-selling to create a need! That is definitely a great idea. This prepares your visitors for the products/services that you’re promoting. It’s almost like a serendipity type of marketing. You talk about the benefits, then what do you know, you have a product or services that have the benefits and features that they want! What a coincidence LOL… anyways, thanks for sharing these tips and hope you’re having a great week!

    I found your blog post on kingged.com under the category Making Money Online

      Hi Sherman
      Good to see you here again at my blog post after a while.

      You pointed a valid issue; many bloggers declare their monthly income while a huge number don’t feel it necessary and just tell the level of income as huge, moderate or handsome etc.

      I think no businessman tells his customers how much he is earning. If we say blogging is also a business we should not be bound to declare how much we are earning.

      If we presell, we need not to stimulate the consumer demand before selling and our readers will already be convinced of the benefits of a product of our marketing campaign.

      Thanks a lot for coming by and sharing your awesome views.

      Hope to see you again. :-)

    Hi Mi Muba,
    Point #6 about “almost copying” other products is one that I have some experience with. Most of my blogs over the years have been in very popular niches with lots of potential readers and lots of other blogs, businesses, and products. I’ve had some success with digital product sales, and in most cases there have been a lot of competing products that were pretty similar to mine. I definitely have tried to make my products unique and to find a way to help them stand out, but in some niches it is inevitable that there will be a lot of options for customers and some other products that are fairly similar to yours. Most people would try to avoid these niches because of the competition, but if it is a popular niche you don’t need to dominate it, just get a small percentage of the market and you can make money.

    • says

      Hi Marc

      Good to learn your personal experience about Point#6 of “almost copying other products” but to just get inspiration from them.

      Your unique way of writing with a blogging experience of half a decade do deserve that newbie bloggers get inspiration from it and follow your footprint.

      I once read somewhere that for the beginners it is almost impossible to develop their own style from the very beginning. That is why they are advised initially to copy others and then gradually create their own voice.

      Thanks a lot for stopping by and adding value in this post with your awesome views.

      Hope to see you again. :-)

      Have a great weekend ahead.

    Hello Mi Muba,

    Your title won me, I want to definitely know those 10 business tips to make money from blogging so diving in…

    I agree wholeheartedly with your point about being business minded is a good thing. I’ve always said, selling is an honorable industry, and I believe that whole-heartedly.

    We should be proud to be business people, most definitely! If we are offering something of value that helps people solve their problems, it is a great thing to sell products and services which accomplish this very thing.

    I understand your point with number one, because full-time affiliate marketer will be spending quite a bit of money to try out products, however, the vendor is willing in many cases to give a review copy so there is not always an outlay of money per se.

    I can count the times on one hand that I have promoted something that I have not personally bought and used, (came highly recommended by a friend I trust) as I like to hear a first-hand account of what this product or service did from the person promoting before I even contemplate buying it. So I do the same thing because I try to treat others the way I want to be treated.

    I trust the person, I like the person, I know the person and trust their opinion about what they bought. I rarely buy from anyone who does not speak personally about a service or product. I think it’s builds a lack of credibility if one promotes things they know nothing about first hand.

    Yes, I see more and more entrepreneurs sharing their income reports, and while it can be helpful to some – I’m not that big of a fan of this practice. I will not be doing it, that’s for sure – I agree with you!

    As far as promoting many things at once, it’s great to have a page of recommended resources, or favorites where a list of programs, products and services can be listed for review at anytime.

    Sorry to say, I totally disagree with number eight, but that’s what makes the world an interesting place, right?

    I completely agree with you that we should be very fair to our target audience, I think you’re spot on. :-)

    Thanks for sharing this thought-provoking post, as I will attempt to be more mindful of purposely making money in all aspects of my blogging.

    Hope you have an awesome evening.
    – Carol

      Hi Carol

      Vow; it’s not comments but a mini-post; thanks for taking your time and giving much attention to share your wonderful views. It shows your dedication as a great blogger. :-)

      What a motivational start of your comments with the phrase: “selling is an honorable industry”.

      When we sell we first serve people first by providing quality products to them. Earning money is the end result of our great service to people. Would that all people understand this fact.

      Yes I also sold a lot of products online without using it and made huge number of their sales. It proves that if you are a true marketer you need not to be first consumer and then seller. These are two different jobs of two different groups of people.

      You do have all the rights to differ with all or any of the tips here and I do have highest regard for your right to disgree. If we don’t agree to disagree we won’t be able to explore new things for easing our tasks. :-)

    Hey Mi Muba,

    Really good post.

    I want to focus on point number 6 because it is important. What you’re basically saying is to not re-invent the wheel and your’re right. But what you’re also saying is to target “hungry” markets, as the great Gary Halbert said.

    There’s no point in trying to come up with a product that people don’t need a solution for. When you do something like that, you’ll end up looking like the fool because nobody wants it in the first place. So I really agree with that point and it’s something that should be followed.

    In your tip number 5, I’m on the fence about that. IF your product is related to something that the interviewee is talking about, then sure … but if it’s not, then that’s just tacky to do that during the interview. Especially when you can easily create a blurb at the end of your interview that would refer people to your products/services.

    Really good post here, Mi Muba.

      Hi Andrew

      I am glad you liked this post; it encourages me a lot equally when a pro blogger appreciates my post.

      It is so common in blogosphere that while creating a new product newbie bloggers try to be so creative. So much so they digress from the right path and create a product very abstract and ambigious. So they should not forget the dynamics of effective blogging and should stay around the common trends of creating a new product.

      In interview post also, bloggers simply stay to the subject matter and forget they are also online marketers and can fully exploit that forum to promote their products.

      Thanks a lot for coming by and sharing your wonderful views here.

      Have a great weekend. :-)

    Hi Mi Muba,

    This is an excellent guideline for many bloggers. When I first came into the blogging world, I made many mistakes because I was selling an affiliate product and listening to what the product owners were telling me to do. Ergo…I was blogging without a business sense.

    After understanding the marketing aspect of having a business and a blog, it all came together! Let’s face it, we are here to make money!

    A good business plan will always turn out to be prosperous. I like the idea of sending X product to one list and Z product to another. We have to know our audience! Who needs what to help them on their way.

    With me, if I want to sell someone’s product, I like to use it first. This way if someone I sell it to gets “stuck” I can explain what to do to them.

    But, as you know, I do have my own products to sell, and that took me to another level. Not easy, but worth it! I do feel more interactive with my clients and affiliates.

    With the product I have, I do have many affiliate products I do share with them. The one’s I use myself, and also some that my trusted friends use and I know are good.

    You really gave a great lesson here, and I’m sure you have inspired people how to sell correctly!

      Hi Donna

      Blogging without a business sense is a problem of many. You realized it sooner or later but many people never understand that without it one can’t earn money with his blog. That is why you are at this much level of success and this is the sign of you being a great blogger.

      You are right; it is not difficult to produce something but the real test is to market it otherwise one just be creating huge number of contents at his blog but no one would be there to read and buy the products recommended in them.

      You have the great advantage of selling mostly your own products. It means you don’t have to buy each product before selling or doing extensive research on its benefits before selling it. But affiliate marketers do have this gigantic challenge and they face it by hook or by crook.

      Yes if you sell lesser number of affiliate products you can use them without feeling any burden on your budget and can narrate its benefits with higher confidence level.

      Thanks a lot for coming by and sharing your wonderful views here.

      Hope to see you again.

    Hi Mi Muba,
    Amazing tips, This is the first time I am commenting on your blog and trust me I really liked the way you explained the points. I agree with all these points listed by you in this post.
    Thanks for sharing the post.

    Hey Mi Muba,

    Very in-depth list! My favorite is #7. As you said:

    “Your junior bloggers of the same niche are also part of your target audience. So do guide them free as much as you can but don’t be ashamed to refer a product to them for solution of their given problem.”

    This is spot on. The new bloggers in your niche are part of your target audience. Too many bloggers see them as COMPETITION, and that’s just the wrong way to look at them. They’re part of your audience, and they’re potential customers. Treat me as such!

    Keep up the good work, Mi Muba. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Hi Mi,

    Wow, you’ve delivered some great information in this post. Priceless.

    Just by reading this post one can truly learn what it takes to make money blogging. There is more information here than in the program I used to pay for and belong to for over 3 years.

    What you’re saying about giving people a discount and being ahead of the game is very important indeed. I really feel that being first is vital in the crowded marketing world.

    Thank you for all your hard work :)

      Hi Sylviane

      I am so glad you termed the value of this post equal to a premium course. No words can be that much encouraging for me because you quantified my efforts in monetary terms. :-) It becomes much easier to evaluate value once you measure it in any exact terms.

      Thanks a lot for stopping by and sharing your wonderful views here.

      Hope to see you again.

    Hi Mi

    Two of the things that really stood out for me here were 1) Knowing your product and 2) creating a need for that product with your readers before you hit the sale.

    In order to be successful in selling a product you really need to have faith in that product, to know that it works and to know that it is of value to others. If you can’t do this then really you shouldn’t be selling it (IMHO). I think this works for good Karma too!!

    Secondly, you shouldn’t just be jumping straight into sales, and if that is the main focus, then it is going to stand out in your blog. Instead, build the relationship as people buy from people that they trust. This takes work and is built over time. If you can provide your readers with information that they consider to be of value, then they will start to look at the product you are offering.

    Great tips here Mi!!

      Hi Catherine

      You took up really two very valid points here that directly related to online marketing. Without fully knowing your product you can’t sell it like a hot cake nor you can hit the sale without first creating its demand.

      The method to know a product can be different but the ultimate aim must be to have its complete knowledge so that if someone asks any subsidiary detail you can reply without any delay on the spot.

      Without good relationship with your audience you can showcase as much products as you can but you can sell if they have trust in you and are in good rapport with you.

      Thanks a lot for coming by and sharing your wonderful veiws. You have always been here to give your feedback on my latest post. This is really commendable.

      Hope to see you again.

    Hello Mi,

    All of these tips are wonderful. I know with some sponsored posts they will send you the product. One of the bloggers blogs I read she said a company did that for her. When I had my natural health blog (which I am trying to bring back) a company sent me their product to use. So, I used it and than I wrote a blog post about it.

    I don’t think it is wrong to promote products that you don’t use. Sometimes, you might want to use it but the price might be too expensive. Many times people want to purchase things but it’s not in their budgets at the time. I think that’s where the fake it until you make it mentality comes in.

    Thanks for sharing these awesome tips with us!

      A warm welcome to you here at BeAMoneyBlogger.

    H! Mi Muba,
    I totally agree with you that instead of showing income reports, show them how to earn. In my whole career i never share my earning report because it does’t make a since.
    Anyways, your article is really really informative and keep sharing.
