The secret to becoming a professional blogger in half the time is … doubling your current revenue.
Thank you very much. You guys have been a great audience. Enjoy the rest of the blog.
(Oh. You want to know how to double your revenue? Oh, allllllright.)
What do you think is the fastest way to double the revenue from your blog?
(I’ll give you a minute to think about it.)
(Seriously. Answer the question before you read on.)
(Did you really answer it?)
Alright. Show of hands. How many said a) doubling your traffic or b) finding higher paying advertisers was the fastest way to double your revenue?
If you did, you’re in very good company.
Too often, we get so close to our blogs that we develop tunnel vision. Everything is in place, and we think if we can just keep generating enough content, and growing our readership, and if we can just find some higher paying advertisers, surely, somewhere down the road, we’ll get to the point where we can quit our day jobs and do what we really enjoy. We can see the progress, slowly, day by day, so we know we’ll get there eventually.
