It’s true that I have a “regular” website, my so-called “main website,” which I first set up to sell my goods, in this case, men’s and women’s health products. It’s my workhorse, the source of most of my revenue. Most of my sales resulted from generic listings in the search engines, particularly Google.
Which sites are recommended? Start by asking your friends about the sites they use, and check out the reviews of various sites in follow me and review sites.
By writing regularly (my goal is 4 entries or “posts” per week), seldom does a week go by that I don’t add someone to my network or use what I am writing to make a new connection with an existing or potential Client.
Imagine for a moment that we – this includes you reading this now – are all in this big, nice swimming pool together. We are relaxing, having a good time, enjoying each others company and we all have something in common. In this case, we all own blogs and we all market to the same niche market.
Most blogs are usually never read by more than a few. They sit there in the virtual world on servers, which provide this service for free (lord only knows why), and the muses and thoughts of those who write them serve more as a personal diary for the individual than to inform the world of some serious event.
There are several revenue sharing sites that share their revenue with their writers. They will place Google ads around your articles and when someone clicks you get a percentage. Most sites pay 50%. Some pay less and some pay more. A few great revenue sharing sites are ehow, triond, flixya, helium and associated content. If you write enough articles you can make a decent side income.
A blog can serve as your “Home Base” where people go to find out about you, find helpful information, laugh, reflect, share, enjoy, discover ways to solve their problems….. whatever it is you want them to do. You set the goals and parameters. Stay on top of your newly found tool and be sure to consistently update your blog, stay in touch with your followers and the sky could be the limit.
