Every blogging struggle consists of blogging limiting beliefs.
Working hard does not obliterate limiting beliefs. If anything, working harder and longer leads to burnout because you cannot get over limiting ideas that appear to hold you back.
Address blogging limiting beliefs. Own each mental block.
Shed these imagined handcuffs to accelerate your blogging success.
Limiting Beliefs for Bloggers
Beware mimicking limiting beliefs shared by established bloggers.
I have been guilty of sharing limiting beliefs sometimes.
Release these ideas.
Let go fear to develop empowered blogging beliefs.
1: People Hate to Be Sold To
I like when people sell me what I want.
Unfortunately, bloggers sometimes resist selling products and services for the fear that people hate being sold to. If you fear selling you will struggle to make money through your blog.
Of course, do not only promote business products and services. Share your knowledge via detailed content to gain credibility. But freely promote your business to clear the fears of:
Bloggers who thrive get clear on promoting themselves, their business and their in-depth content.
People love buying what they need and appreciate bloggers who freely share their premium offerings.
2: People Can’t Afford Premium Products
I recall seeing one of the Balinese staff we befriended during a trip to the Island of the Gods.
He owned a high end Apple phone.
How does a guy making between $150 – $200 USD a month afford to buy a phone worth hundreds of dollars?
He purchased the expensive phone on a payment plan.
People run through a brick wall to afford what they want.
Prospective clients and customers invest in valuable courses, manuals and coaching. Never believe that people cannot afford your premium offerings.
Let go non-matches to make room for your ideal clients and customers.
People stretch their budget to buy what they want.
Affluent individuals easily afford premium products and services but cultivating your abundance consciousness is step #1 in connecting with abundant people. Move higher in blogging circles by being:
Bloggers who generously help people maintain an abundant vibe attractive to prospering clients. Clients with deep pockets have no issues purchasing premium products and services.
3: The Money Is Only in the Email List
Money is in consciousness.
Never restrict blogging money to a single channel. In truth, bloggers tend to prosper freely through lists for the convenience of receiving emails. But blogging income flows from consciousness through potentially unlimited blogging channels, not solely through an email list.
Blogging money flows through:
- niche specific forums
in addition to email lists and an even wider range of online channels.
Money is in consciousness. Ultimately, money is in your mindset because rich ideas executed freely net blogging profits.
4: If You Promote too Many Products or eBooks on Your Blog People Will Get Confused and Not Buy Anything
If this limiting belief were true Amazon would have went bust decades ago.
Embedding products on blogs does not confuse people necessarily.
Do not believe that selling one or two products increases your blogging profits.
- a high volume of products you never properly promote
- a high volume of products people do not want
tends to net lesser blogging profits.
Be generous. Publish a helpful store of products that solves reader’s problems.
Give each product the love it deserves. Promote offerings freely to increase blogging profits.
5: People Only Want Freebies
People buy beneficial online courses.
Bloggers invest in helpful coaching.
Some people want only freebies but many people freely invest money in what they want.
Let go the limiting belief that all readers want only free content to attract prospering readers. Dissolve this limiting idea from your mind to draw clients and customers to you.
6: Working Incredibly Hard Gains Reader Trust
Some readers become cold buyers.
People may buy your stuff a few moments after their first blog visit.
Some people trust bloggers slowly but surely. Other people trust bloggers immediately.
Everyone is different.
No blogger needs to toil for 18 hour days spanning years just to gain one eBook sale.
In truth, bloggers work for a long time to go pro but people of varying trust levels visit your blog. Readers may trust you after reading one blog post or perhaps after scanning a few sentences.
Work generously, patiently and persistently. Some people trust you after a few months; others trust you after a few minutes.
7: Big Ticket Products Bring Big Profits
Blogging riches do not originate exclusively from promoting a $5000 big ticket offer to a 10 people monthly.
In most cases, bloggers go pro by establishing income streams yielding varying profits.
For example, a pro blogger tends to earn money through a few streams like:
- affiliate marketing
- offering coaching services
- writing and selling eBooks
- creating and selling courses
Driving an increasing volume of targeted traffic nets income through each channel. Clients hire coaches for $2000 per month. 100 people purchase a product yielding $10 per affiliate sale. 30 people buy a $10 blogging eBook. 20 people purchase a $200 blogging course.
$3900 in blogging income at month’s end flowed through high ticket to low ticket income channels.
Never limit yourself to big ticket profit streams. Mix channels to maximize your profits.
8: Blogging Income Depends Solely on the Value You Provide through Your Blog Posts
Employees who blog believe that someone pays them for a valuable blog post.
However, no one pays you a blogging salary based on publishing a highly-detailed, SEO-optimized blog post.
Businesses grow organically. No one knows when clients and customers will arrive to your blog.
Blogging income seems fickle during beginner blogger days. Be patient. Good things take time and generous service.
Pay close attention to successful entrepreneurs. No one pays business owners for a job well done. Sales increase organically based on solving problems suffered by their target market.
Reverse employee thinking. Stop looking for a paycheck. Lose yourself in helping people freely. Organically, blogging profits will flow to you if you trust yourself and the blogging process.
Concentrate on earning business profits organically. Let go the idea of gaining a paycheck weekly.
Stop thinking like an employee. Start thinking like an entrepreneur.
9: You Need Other People to Validate Your Products Before Folks Will Buy Your Products
People buy your products if you have no strong mental blocks to people buying your products.
People buy your products if you have no mental blocks to selling those products.
Getting positive eBook reviews can boost sales but people buy stuff without reading reviews. In other cases, customers purchase eBooks with no reviews.
Since no one knows customer drivers never believe that your premium offerings need a high volume of 5 star reviews to sell.
Solve reader problems with your:
- detailed content
Clients and customers buy in to generous, helpful bloggers. If someone trusts you they do not need to read positive reviews before buying anything from you.
10: A Blogging Niche Can Become Oversaturated, Minimizing Income Earning Potential in that Niche
You and I live in an abundant Universe.
Limits exist only in the mind.
No niche becomes oversaturated because nothing runs out in abundance.
Stop spreading this rumor. More importantly, stop believing in this idea.
Reversing this level of thought often takes significant time.
Believe in abundance not scarcity.
Own and shed each limiting belief.
Let go imagined anchors.
Accelerate your blogging success by letting go what appears to hold you back.
