The Products You Can Promote On Your Blogs

Out of all the emails I get from my readers the one question that comes up the most is a variation of the following; “Sire, everywhere I go I read that if I want to make money on my blog I really need a product of my own to promote. The problem is I don’t have one and so I really need some advice as to what products I actually can promote.” Naturally, all the emails were different but that quote portrays the general gist of the emails. Its safe to say that this problem is one that many bloggers struggle with and it is in fact one that I struggled with for a few years myself. The obvious reason is that bloggers, like myself, don’t have our own product to promote and probably never will have. That being the case we join sites like Commission Junction, Clickbank and the…

Making A Sale Is All About The Right Review

As bloggers there are many of us who would love to make a living from it but unfortunately most of us aren’t doing too well at it. I would say that the first thing a blogger does to monetize their blog would be sticking Adsense ads on it somewhere in the vain hope that someone will click on it. There’s nothing wrong with Adsense ads as they can generate some income but unless you have a huge amount of traffic all you’re going to get is a bit of pocket money. The other way to blog for money would be through promoting affiliates or by selling your products online. The problem is most of us don’t have products to sell and so we have to rely on selling other peoples products either as an affiliate or by joining sites such as Amazon. The Importance Of Honest Reviews Where most people…

Yeah, I know, that heading is a little on the long side but I just felt it was necessary because it explains exactly what this post is all about. The thing to remember about your blog is that, where advertising is concerned, there are areas on your blog that can be considered advertising real estate. These areas include the header, footer, sidebars and within the post itself. Of all the areas the ones considered most valuable are the ones above the fold. The first time I saw the term ‘above the fold‘ I didn’t have a clue what they were talking about. I now know that when people talk about something being above the fold they are referring to the section of your blog, or web page, that is visible on your screen before you start scrolling down. Everything else is below the fold. If you look at my Well Blog Me…

A Review Of The BackupBuddy Plugin

There are a lot of bloggers out there who have written a post about their ten most essential WordPress plugins, or something along those lines, and I can assure you that almost every one of them would have included in that list a backup plugin. I’m also pretty sure that the plugin most of them would recommend is Austin Matzko’s WordPress Database Backup. Heck, that was always my plugin of choice until something went wrong with one of my blogs and I had to restore my last backup Yep, the biggest flaw in that plugin is there is no restore function. I always thought that because I had that plugin everything was sweet until I needed to restore that blog. Sure the plugin saved my butt as it at least gave me a database to restore but it took me a lot of Googling and a bit of stressful manipulation…

Why You’re Not Getting Sales On Your Blog

I’ve often wondered about this and I’ve even tried to compare blogs to real word businesses in order to find an answer. Let’s consider a couple of real world businesses to see where some differences may lie. The first one that comes to mind, probably because I’ve been associated with this type of business for most of my life, is the supermarket or corner deli. As long as their premises are neat, tidy and welcoming and their staffs attitude is professional and friendly they’re likely to convert almost every person that comes into their store into sales. The main reason for this is people who come into this type of store are looking for something that they need then and there. Now lets look at a store that sells TV’s, Hi-Fi systems and the like. They may find it a little harder to convert because not everyone that walks into…

Andy’s IM Graphics Plugin Review

I have gotten a lot of emails from people who say that although they love the FlexSqueeze theme the fact that they’ve just purchased a professional theme of their own prevents them from outlaying anymore money on another one. Even so they wish their theme had the ability to incorporate professionally designed images right into their posts or sales / landing pages and, pretty please, is there a plugin or something that would allow them to have at least that portion of flexibility that FlexSqueeze has. Unfortunately I’ve had to disappoint them all by answering in the negative, until now. Rather than emailing them all with the good news, an impossible feat as I’ve deleted most of their emails, I though the next best thing is to write a post about a plugin I’ve just purchased that will allow them to do just that. Why buy it when FlexSqueeze already…

This Has To Be The Best WordPress Comment System

I know there are a lot of people out there who are looking for that special WordPress comment system, one that will make their blog stand out from the rest. I know this because the post I wrote, What Is The Best Comment System For WordPress Blogs, generated a lot of interest, both in comments and in the amount of traffic it gets from the search engines. In that post and in others I’ve always maintained that the default system is the best and I’ve always bagged other comment systems like Disqus, Livefyre and Intense Debate, until now! The biggest negative those other comment systems have is the extra hoops they put their commentators through just to leave a comment. This one bad point so outweighs any positive features  that it’s pointless installing them. I know bloggers who use them will swear by them but if they’re that good why do most…

It looks like Andy Bailey has been at it again. For those of you who are new to blogging Andy Bailey is the wonder behind the Commentluv plugin, a plugin that is so popular hundreds of thousands of bloggers use it. Something else you may not know is that Andy recently released the CommentLuv Premium version. Being a premium version Andy has filled it with heaps of extras to make it worth the price. I’m not going to go through all of the plugin’s attributes because I’ve already listed them in my post CommentLuv Premium Adding To Revenue Stream. What’s that, how can it add to your revenue stream? Quite simple really as it is a lot easier to sell something to your reader if they see that you’re actually using the product yourself. CommentLuv Now Improving Your Comments The thing with Andy is that he is never satisfied with the…
