Make money for *other* bloggers.
As I bus through gorgeous New Zealand I thought of ways and means and strategies and hacks for making money through my blog.
Turns out, the best way to make money is to serve other bloggers. Or to help other bloggers make money.
Most bloggers screw this up because they focus – out of their predominant vibe of fear – on themselves, and how to manipulate systems and tools to make money.
Hence the “Hey how do *I* make money through *my* blog?” question.
Help other bloggers make money.
Add content to other blogger’s blogs.
Promote other bloggers.
Assist other bloggers.
Help other bloggers for free.
Being generous creates your biggest pay day.
All money-making actions are gateway activities. Allow this idea to seep into your cranium.
After I publish this guest post I won’t receive payment through Paypal. But human beings who dig my value will buy one of my eBooks through the link below – which boosts my blogging profits – or visit my blog or hire or pay for a sponsored post….or do 1 of 101 other activities which lead to profiting.
The profit is in generous, detached service. Not in conditional, fear-based, reluctant giving.
I have written over 2,000 guest posts. The more I give and less I care about getting, the more I get. Traffic, money, comments, everything.
Allow that idea to seep into your noodle. You’ll fully embrace how to really make money blogging.
1: Comment Genuinely on Blogs
Publish 2-3 paragraph, personalized, genuine comments on blogs related to your niche.
How it helps you make money: commenting adds value to other blogs. Add value, receive value, in some way, shape or form. Friendships built lead to cross promoting. Genuine comments drive traffic to your blog. Authentic comments build business because you impress folks for free and prosper by impacting potential clients and customers through blog comments.
2: Guest Post on Blogs
Guest post on blogs from your niche.
Help large, targeted audiences.
How it helps you make money: helping large, engaged audiences drives traffic to your blog. Human beings intrigued by your knowledge hire you and buy your stuff. Don’t get any simpler than this.
The rub; write 1000 words daily in a Word document to improve your writing skills, to land guesties on rocking blogs.
3: Promote Other Bloggers
The few who do this right become the most connected, successful, and happiest bloggers on earth.
I genuinely love promoting other bloggers.
So I do it freely.
My friend Alonzo Pichardo is a fabulous example of putting this concept into action.
He is incredibly generous, promoting my content all over the place.
Of course he’s built a super successful online business. If you help other people succeed you will succeed.
If you want to make money blogging help other bloggers make money blogging. Promote other bloggers on your blog, through social media and via your courses. Help people grow their blogs and you will grow your blog beautifully, including increasing your blogging profits.
Broke bloggers think only about themselves and stay broke.
Generous bloggers think of other bloggers, promote other bloggers and find that making tons of blogging buddies who promote you, endorse you, hire you and buy your stuff leads to substantial blogging profits.
