Wisconsin Business Owners welcomes repeat DYNAMO speaker Joan Stewart this Friday, January 27th, presenting:
The Top 10 Ways to Monetize Your Blog
Frustrated by too little traffic and little or no revenue at your blog? You need to know the tricks of how to make blogging really pay. Otherwise, it isn't much more than a time-consuming hobby.
Joan Stewart, aka The Publicity Hound, who has been blogging for seven years and making money doing it, will give you a treasure chest of ideas, tactics, tools and advice on how to turn your blog into an ATM machine--without annoying your readers.
You will learn:
--The most important thing you must have at your blog. Without it, you won't even make spare change.
--How to recycle your blog content into profitable info products you can sell all over the Internet.
--2 red-hot websites where millions of people are flocking, credit cards in hand. You need to be there so they can pay you for content you've already created at your blog!
--How a gutsy blogger makes $15,000 a year from his blog by letting his readers make recurring donations. (You'll love this story.)
--How to use your own banner ads at your own blog, and where to find inexpensive graphic artists who charge as little as $5 to create an ad.
--Joan's handout of the Top 27 ways to make your blog go "ka-ching, ka-ching!"
--Answers to your questions. She's leaving plenty of time for them, and she'll stick around for another half hour or so after the presentation to help you with things like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Internet marketing.
