Was she a land shark?
I know not.
I do know she behaved like an apex predator.
A Massage Megalodon, beside the Indian Ocean in Bali.
From a distance.
Then exploding in for the attack.
But it wasn’t really an attack.
She was kind, but desperate.
Or was it just the way things are done with some touts in Bali?
Either way, I knew exactly what the massage lady was promoting after we landed in Sanur, Bali, 2 days into our 6 year round the world trip.
Hey You! Come to Spa!
As we road bikes down the street in Hoi An, Vietnam, a young Vietnamese lady sprinted from inside her shop to the sidewalk and pointed in our direction.
She said: “Hey you! Come to spa!”
So Kelli came to spa. More than a few times.
Some folks around the world are clear on what they offer, business-wise.
This is not the case with most bloggers.
The Balinese beach massage lady pounced on me like a lion on a zebra, touting her wares.
The Vietnamese spa lady was about as subtle as heart failure in promoting her services.
Most bloggers fear promoting their products or services. They hide away, they shy away, and they never get clear on what they have to offer from a premium angle. Which is why most bloggers struggle to make money blogging.
Benefits of Reading this Post
If you get clear on promoting your blogging products and services you:
- help more folks
- make more money
Doesn’t get any simpler than that.
By the way; did you know I am a blogging coach? I can help you build a successful blog from the inside out. Meaning you can have fun, gracefully drifting through the ups and downs of this online journey to build a successful blog, by working with me.
Let’s dive in, my little sweet robbins.
1: Commit 100% to Doing Energy Work on Waking
This is the difference maker.
Doing energy work on waking helps expand your awareness.
Expanding your awareness makes you aware of promotional-related fears regarding your blog.
Meditating, doing yoga, and jumping into an icy cold shower on waking expanded my consciousness so I became intimately aware of my money fears. Said money fears fed my fears related to promoting my products and services.
Exposing and embracing these money and promoting related fears helps you dissolve the fears. Love and harmony begin to dominate your being and blogging campaign after you clear money-related fears.
This means sharing your premium offerings freely, detaching from outcomes and of course, greater blogging profits now and down the road.
2: Eviscerate Horse Poopy Money Limiting Beliefs
Money does not grow on trees? No; it’s just an unlimited energy.
People hate to be sold to? I love when someone clearly sells me something I want; selling is a reminder, not an insulting act.
Most human beings do things from fear, predominantly. Most human beings do things from a place of terror, predominantly, when it comes to money.
Understand that most if not all advice you received from fam, friends and the general public in regards to money is pure horse shit. Totally untrue.
Sit down. Take a deep breath. Grab a pen and paper. Write out a few platitudes you may have been taught regarding money. Do the sayings feel true? If the beliefs are based in pure abundance and harmony, keep the beliefs and make more money through your blog. If the beliefs are not based in fear and harmony, burn the piece of paper over the bathroom sink.

3: Surround Yourself with Clear Bloggers
Surround yourself only with clear, confident bloggers.
See that it’s okay to charge money for your products and services.
More importantly, release the unclear aka fearful bloggers who add a fear-based charge to anything money-related.
Let go the fear energy to make room for the loving, harmonious, prospering energy of clear bloggers, so you can add that energy to your blog monetizing campaign.

4: Learn from Top Earners
Look at a guy like John Chow.
He promotes $10,000 opportunities like most bloggers promote $2 eBooks.
Feast on the clarity and confidence with which these top earners promote their big ticket products and services so you can raise the bar.
I recall feeling uncomfortable accepting $25 for my coaching services a few years back. Ditto for accepting $30 for my blogging course.
I got clearer on money by feasting on top earner blogger clarity and raised my coaching services rate to $200 an hour and my blogging course to $350.
I have signed up more clients at 200 bills and sold more courses at 350 bills than I did at 25 and 30.
The power of clarity strikes again.
5: Promote, Promote and Promote Some More
Promote your products and services freely.
Mention 1 product or service through every blog post you publish via a clear cut call to action.
Sharing premium offerings persistently unearths fears around money – frustrations with nobody buying after 10,000 page views, anxiety that you are promoting stuff too frequently, fearing that promoting stuff is a waste of time since nobody’s buying anyway – so you can feel these unpleasant energies, eat an energetic feces sandwich, and then, after clearing the fear, promote from a place of love and clarity.
One of my premium offerings saw 8,000 page views before someone bought it. Who cares? The 8,000 page views suggested nothing of the clarity and value in the product.
Losers (people with a losing mentality aka losing energy aka fear energy predominantly) may have said “Something was wrong with the product.”
I say that Howard Schultz had 300 plus banks tell him Starbucks was a terrible idea. Evidence of the 300 plus banks (who denied his loan requests) being a little bit off base is the fact that here in New York City if you take 10 giant steps in any direction you will run into a Starbucks coffee shop.
Keep promoting. Keep sharing. The clearer you get, you don’t even think of failure or loss, and that sweet chedda will flow in over time.
Keep Income Streams Spreading.
Add one income stream every 3-6 months. Learn the stream. Work the stream.
Adding multiple streams of income detaches you from any one stream, helping you get clear on all income streams.
I added sponsored post revenue, advertising revenue and freelance writing revenue to beef up my income streams a few years back. (Email me if you are interested in these services).
7: Accept this Truth
Money does not define you.
How much you earn suggests nothing of your worth as a human being.
You are unlimited awareness. Who gives a rat’s rectum what unlimited awareness does during this human experience?
Accepting this simple idea helped me cease heavily judging myself by the money I made. I eased up. The money story largely died. I relaxed. I helped people. I did things with love. I had fun. Money flowed in more easily because I felt clearer on promoting my products and services, dissolving the fear and tension I previously had attached to money.
8: Observe How You Feel While Handling Money
Do you fear spending?
How does it feel when the bills arrive monthly?
Feel any fears, worries, anxieties or terrors you experience when handling money.
Clearing the fears helps you handle money with love and harmony.
Handling money with love and harmony inspires you to promote your products and services freely.
9: Celebrate Every Penny You Earn
I celebrate every $2.78 I make through an Amazon eBook sale.
Celebrating money invites more money into your experience.
Celebrating money also influences you to share your premium offerings clearly and persistently because you begin to see; when you allow in money, it is evidence that you are getting clearer on allowing in money, and the clearer you get on letting in money, the clearer you get on promoting premium aka money offerings.
10: Repeat this Phrase to Yourself Persistently
“It is only money.”
“It is just money.”
Bloggers and humans spread untrue meme’s: it’s tough to make money blogging, people hate to be sold to, you need to work hard for money, etc, etc, etc….but….I have found it easier and easier to make money blogging, I love to be sold to when I enjoy a product or service (selling is a reminder, not a slimy process), fun play leads to money…..and we sometimes forget: it’s just money. Or, it’s only money.
You are not asking for someone’s newborn baby as a means of exchange. It is only money. A neutral energy.
You are not asking someone to chop off their right leg for your blogging course on how to get featured on famous blogs. Just $299. It is only money. A neutral energy.
Repeating this phrase helps you market your products and services freely. If it is just money you are asking for, the emotional charge related to neutral energy of money disappears, and you share your premium offerings clearly and persistently.
Did You See What I Did?
I promoted most of my products and services throughout this post. Hehehehe.
How are you getting clearer on promoting your products and services?
What fears do you have concerning promoting your premium offerings?
What tips can you add to this list?
