How Do Bloggers Make Big Bucks?
I guess the first thing I should point out is this.
Most bloggers don’t make big bucks.
But those who do, usually make their big bucks from creating digital products.
Product Creators are Product Sellers
When you create a digital product, you can promote it on your blog.
You can also put it on affiliate sites like Clickbank, JV Zoo, Deal Guardian, Zaxaa and others.
When you do, you can attract other affiliates to promote your product.
This generates more sales.
When you build a nice team of affiliates, you don’t even have to promote your products any more.
You just keep creating them, and your affiliates will sell them for you.
More products means more sales.
Product creators are product sellers through their own efforts, and through the efforts of their affiliates.
This is one route that bloggers can travel to make big bucks.
Product Creators are List Builders
Not all bloggers will create products to sell them.
In fact, the larger number of products created by bloggers are “lead magnets.”
A lead magnet is a product that is offered for free. Readers voluntarily subscribe to your email list in order to get the free product.
Bloggers can make big bucks giving away free products they create.
The better the product, the bigger the list.
More people will join your list if you offer a good product, or a product that addresses a hot topic.
A free product called “Get Penny Clicks With Facebook Ads” will build a bigger list than one called “Have Fun Writing Interesting Articles.” That’s because Facebook ads is a hot topic right now.
Building a bigger list means you will have more chance of earning bigger bucks down the road, as you continually offer products and services to your list.
Bloggers vastly increase their revenue from list building when they create products that satisfy two key criteria.
1. The product needs to be high quality. If you put together a shoddy product just to build a list, you’ll end up with a bunch of people on your list who don’t trust your authority or ability to offer value. So they won’t respond very well to your offers.
Make your products great, even though they’re free. Over deliver great quality information in an interesting, enjoyable manner. This will raise your trust level, you will be seen as an authority in the niche, and your offers will be taken far more seriously. This will help you optimize the value of your list in terms of revenue.
2. Make sure the free product you create and offer will attract the kind of subscribers most likely to buy the products and services you promote.
This seems like an obvious thing to do, but numerous bloggers get this wrong.
It’s not uncommon to find many of them offering things only vaguely related to the products they intend to promote to their email list.
Product Creators Earn Commissions
Bloggers can make big bucks in the form of commissions.
They do this in several ways.
When they create products to build a list, they can earn good commissions as affiliate products they promote to their list.
Creating free products is not the only way to build your list, though.
Bloggers creating paid products can earn big bucks both on the “front end” of their business and on the “back end.”
So, they have a very good opportunity for high earnings.
On the front end, you can sell your digital product. That’s revenue.
When you have affiliates selling your product, your revenues increase.
But your list also increases.
Every buyer is added to your list. This grows a list, but not just a list. It grows a “buyers list.”
A buyers list is infinitely more valuable than a general subscribers list.
That’s because buyers are proven to be people who are willing and able, maybe even anxious, to buy similar products.
Bloggers who build a list resulting from sales of their products, have a far better opportunity to earn big bucks on the back end of their business, too.
The “back end” is the products they sell to their list. Most of those products will be affiliate products.
As a product creator, you get to know other product creators pretty well. It’s a pretty tight-knit community.
That opens a lot of doors for getting great affiliate deals for your list, as well as joint venture opportunities with other product creators.
Product Creation Obstacles
The bottom line is this.
Bloggers who create products stand a far better chance of earning big bucks than those who don’t.
It’s the key to building a thriving online business.
The main reason very few bloggers take their business to this level is that they don’t know how to
- create a digital product, and
- promote their product.
If you’d like to start creating digital products, but just don’t know how, I’ve got some good news.
Donna and I will be offering a full course on the entire process of creating and promoting digital products.
While this course is being offered to private members of our Whirlwind Success “VIP Club,” it will also be made available to the general public for a fee.
It will be a few months before this course is ready, but it will be a great resource for bloggers looking to break into this aspect of the business.
Launch Control Center
There was a time when I had no idea how to create or promote digital products, either.
But I did know that it would be a pivotal point in my business if I could learn it.
I was determined to make digital product creation part of my online business, so I set out to find the best folks to learn from.
After a few disappointments, I started working with a guy named John Thornhill.
This was a turning point for me.
John showed me exactly how to
- turn my “thoughts” into products
- turn my products into profits
And it’s not nearly as difficult to do as I thought it would be.
Today, I want to introduce you to a a great opportunity John is offering on a special promotion this week.
Launch Control Center
John has made this an extremely affordable training.
I’m not going to give you details as to pricing because this is a very fast moving offer. The price and bonus offering are changing by the minute.
In a matter of days, the launch special for this training will end altogether.
So, if you’re reading this article after the launch period ends, I’m sorry you didn’t get here earlier.
I will send this information out to my list and via social media channels so that everyone in my circles will have a fair chance to get in on this.
John has put together a great training here.
It’s essentially the same kind of ongoing training and support that I got when I was trying to figure this all out.
PLUS, he throws in his entire product “creation” course that normally costs $297, and is worth every penny.
But during this brief launch period, it’s being included as a Bonus “throw in”.
Now, I’ve paid a lot for John’s training, and I’m a regular member of his monthly training group.
you can get BOTH the membership access and the extensive training course for just a few bucks.
For those of you with any interest at all in creating a product, and promoting it properly, definitely check this out.
My Special Bonus
If you purchase “Launch Control Center” during this promotional launch, I’ll even give you my own special bonus…
I’ll work with you personally to promote your finished product by offering it to my personal list of subscribers, and personally introducing you to them.
I’ve got a few other things I’ll do to help you, but we’ll talk about that after you’ve completed your purchase with my affiliate link below.
My Bonus Disclaimer: (1) Your product must be high quality (if you follow John’s training that comes with your membership, it should be). (2) Your product has to be something that would add value to my lists of internet marketers and bloggers.
That determination will be solely up to me.
But keep in mind, I’m happy to promote things that my friends create, when I see they can add value to my readers and followers.
Now, here’s what you need to do…
1. Purchase Launch Control Center from my link below.
2. Send me your receipt when you do.
3. Then we’ll set up a 15 minute phone or Skype consultation to discuss the best strategy for you to put this into action in your business.
Here’s my affiliate link:
I’m glad I was able to bring this offer to the table for my readers.
I’m sorry that John’s special launch deal will be available for only a few days.
I hope you get the opportunity to get in on this.
Of course, as good as it is, it’s not for everyone.
You may have no interest in creating your own product.
In fact, I’d be interested in hearing if you have created your own product, yet.
If not, do you plan to, or want to?
Do you know how to?
Or do you prefer to stay out of the product creation aspect of blogging and online marketing?
I appreciate, and look forward to your comments and your social shares.
