How do I get email subscribers?

Ever wish you had the perfect formula to grow your email list fast?

For most bloggers, growing a list is all about asking readers to sign up for a newsletter. While this may be all fine and good, growing this way will only give you a list of random readers that may or may not stick around.

At Elite Blog Academy & ACTIVATE, our goal is to find “our people.” The ones that love to read what we have to say and are going to follow us for a good, long time.

We call this a dedicated list, and it is the secret sauce behind just about every profitable blog.

And once you have that list, the sky’s the limit. Grab our free EBA Starter Guide to learn more about how to build your email list the RIGHT way!

How do I get traffic for my blog?

When it comes to focusing on traffic, bloggers tend to get stuck playing the “traffic game”, spending all of their time chasing page views and relying on those page views to drive revenue.

Unfortunately, playing the traffic game is not sustainable for a predictable and profitable online business. What happens if Google changes an algorithm or your Pinterest page crashes and, all of a sudden, no one’s coming to your page?

If you’re playing the traffic game, no traffic = no revenue.

To a large extent, traffic and page views are out of our control. And if we rely on something out of our control to drive revenue, we’ll never be IN control of the success of our blogs.

But luckily, there’s a better game for us to play.

And that is exactly what we teach within the Elite Blog Academy and ACTIVATE framework. Get your free EBA Starter Guide to learn more, or check out some of our helpful resources below.

Does it cost money to start a blog?

Working directly with brands to promote their products is another popular blog monetization strategy. This can include sponsored posts, product reviews, brand ambassadorships), conference sponsorships, or paid product giveaways.

4. Selling Products

Perhaps the most profitable and effective way to make money blogging is to sell your own products. Here at EBA, we show you how to do this the right way, to create products that your audience is asking for, instead of the other way around, using the Upside Down Business Model.

Selling products on a blog can include selling everything from original e-books or e-courses to handmade items, or even blog promotional items such as t-shirts, tote bags, and bumper stickers.

Selling a product could also include selling or marketing a service. Depending on your blog niche, this could include everything from hosting local classes and services to online consulting services such as virtual home decorating services. This could also include social media consulting or virtual assistant work for other bloggers.

Social media can be a great way to promote your business, but it can also be a huge distraction and waste of your precious time!

Here are some helpful tips on how to use your time wisely when it comes to social media strategy and promotion.

How can I be a more productive blogger?

ROI or return on investment. This is a term we often hear related to marketing…as in, “did that Facebook ad give me a positive return on my investment?”

But have you ever thought of ROI in relation to your TIME?

Whether you’re just starting your business journey or you already have a team behind you, the old saying really is true: time is money.

And while this might sound like a cliche, the reality is that when you know what’s eating your time or what efforts carry the most weight, then you know if, what you are doing on a day to day basis, is really the best use of your time. The thing is, where you focus your time needs to be yielding results and paying off in the long-run.

At Elite Blog Academy/ACTIVATE, we focus extensively on making your time work FOR you, not against you. We set goals and work in 12-week sprints that will take you to clear, measurable results.
