I know that a significant number of you are entrepreneurs who have knowledge and services to sell — consultants, business coaches, lawyers, accountants, writers, and so on. A model I increasingly see is professionals like you using a blog for two distinct purposes: (1) to market your services and (2) to generate income directly through affiliate sales, advertising and other methods. The two purposes can work together.
If you are interested in exploring how to generate revenue from your blog directly, I know of a good resource that you can get for free.
Blog Profits Blueprint is by Yaro Starak, who you may recall recorded a podcast with me for his Mastermind group and made it available here.
Blog Profits Blueprint consists of a downloadable PDF and video that use Yaro’s real life examples of how he makes money. He talks about creating content to build traffic. He tells you about each of his revenue sources on the blog. I like the way he spells it out clearly. For instance, in the video he shows you screenshots and in a conversational voice walks you through the different sources of income on his blog. This is not theory, but based on actual experiences.
