From personal experience I can tell you that it works for book writing too. :)

Comment on How to Calculate the Value of Your Blog by Ryan Biddulph http://www.problogger.net/archives/2014/11/28/how-to-calculate-the-value-of-your-blog/comment-page-1/#comment-5317628 Fri, 28 Nov 2014 11:41:05 +0000 http://www.problogger.net/?p=33822#comment-5317628 Hi Tom,

Neat read! I am stat averse yet wow, I love the simple, concise breakdown here. I go off of feel. Intuitive nudges, detaching from stats and the like hasn’t hurt me yet when it comes down to it, wow does it help to have hard and fast numbers to help dictate your direction.

I trashed my last blog because I wasn’t clear on it.

I also realized that I worked like a doggy dog to prosper with it. Something was amiss in the tropical isle – Fiji – where I was at the time. I knew that the revenue per visitor, or flat out, the time vs dollar bottom line was a bit off. So that combined with my lack of clarity with the blog, cause me to delete 3400 blog posts.

Oh stop it guys….I hear you attached bloggers retching, lol! I’m attached too, but was more than happy to get rid of the dead weight because the value – relative to the time spent working it – wasn’t there.

Nice analytical read Tom, without boring me to tears ;) Appreciate it!

Ryan

Your tips are worth noting. In my opinion, marketing automation can work. But it needs a lot of testing and tweaking. There is no fixed formula. You have to try things and find out what works for you. One quick question. How does marketing automation work for you compared to human work? Let us know.

It was nice to read your take on this topic. The most important thing you mentioned here is the “time” one is putting in. That is the most valuable resource. I would like to read something on time management for blogging from your site. How much time should one invest. That is something I am not good at and would be very pleased if you make a post on that. Thank You.

Communication on a one-on-ones basis is quite essential at times.

Excellent article! I like the part where you count based on revenue earned. I use that model too and thank you for sharing!

I see the Digg, Technorati are not much moving up. They changed their strategies in pas few years. Its seems video blogging is more IN as compare to content. People like more to watch rather then reader an article.

Comment on How to Calculate the Value of Your Blog by Vincent Nguyen http://www.problogger.net/archives/2014/11/28/how-to-calculate-the-value-of-your-blog/comment-page-1/#comment-5317574 Fri, 28 Nov 2014 04:56:30 +0000 http://www.problogger.net/?p=33822#comment-5317574 Websites are usually valued based off how much the site itself nets per month. If someone was looking to sell their site then they could typically expect to sell it for 18-28x monthly net profit. For example, if your blog made an average of $1000 per month in net profit, you may be able to find a buyer who would pay $18K – 28K.

I like the idea of finding $/visit to make tweaks to your strategy. The right tweaks and suddenly, your site is making you even more money (which in turn raises its sale value.)

In these days most of the bloggers can’t calculate the value of your blogs. Because of busy schedule. They are getting good traffic from search engines and they are very happy. But most of the bloggers are working on quality and value of our blog. So that they are getting good results and good money.
Truly speaking, I was also working on only two factors. One is link building and the second one is On Page SEO. I know link building is spam in these days. But a blog is nothing without strong link building. But now I will work more on quality. Because in this article so many points are very knowledgeable. In last I would like to say a wonderful thanks from the heart.
Thanks Tom Fanelli

Comment on Did Your Blog Have a Tipping Point? Here’s How My 2 Blogs Grew by John Cookster http://www.problogger.net/archives/2014/11/19/did-your-blog-have-a-tipping-point-heres-how-my-2-blogs-grew/comment-page-1/#comment-5317568 Fri, 28 Nov 2014 02:44:25 +0000 http://www.problogger.net/?p=33672#comment-5317568 Thanks for the great post! In the past I have put too much effort into creating “unnatural backlinks” and not enough in my content and social media following. I have learned to put more emphasis into creating quality content and becoming an authority site in the eyes of google. Anyway, thanks for the read and happy thanksgiving!

I don’t know whether am the only one but sometimes it seems to me that what to write about is finish and there is absolutely no new thing to tackle on..

The Internet is centered around all kinds of great content designed to empower readers. That said, it gives unique content marketers the grand opportunity to put out all kinds of quality information in helping people see what they’re looking for. And, it gives bloggers the opportunity to monetize their blogs and make money from affiliate programs while putting out good information from their blog posts.

Finding the direct returns from your blog, to me, is most difficult. I am sure there are benefits that I may be missing or I am not taking advantage of them at all. The key is documenting everything you can.

Comment on 5 Sources of Ideas for My Blog Posts by Andrew http://www.problogger.net/archives/2014/11/26/5-sources-of-ideas-for-my-blog-posts/comment-page-1/#comment-5317515 Thu, 27 Nov 2014 16:26:46 +0000 http://www.problogger.net/?p=33642#comment-5317515 Hi Darren,

Great post.

For the most part, I’ve been getting my topic from forums in which people have questions that no one seems to have the answers to. And the way I determine if it’s a good topic to write is the amount of views the post receives.

But other than that, I agree with you about questions from readers. And it doesn’t even have to be questions you ask. If you look around and pay attention, there are many people asking various types of questions on different communities that’s not getting answered.

All you have to do is provide a suitable answer really.

Lastly, I look at what others have done before and are popular. That gives me a great indication on what information people really want to know. And if it’s feasible, I’ll break it down into multiple posts. Like I’m starting to do with list posts because each number in a list post is a potential topic on it’s own … depending on the type of list.

Great post here again and I’ll be sure to use some of your ideas you shared here as well.

- Andrew

Comment on How to Use Google in the Most Unusual Way to Make Your Self-Editing Faster, and Better by amrit batth http://www.problogger.net/archives/2014/11/25/how-to-use-google-in-the-most-unusual-way-to-make-your-self-editing-faster-and-better/comment-page-1/#comment-5317511 Thu, 27 Nov 2014 16:04:48 +0000 http://www.problogger.net/?p=33817#comment-5317511 Karol
Great tip, except half the time I’m unaware if I’m using “on” or “at or “by or “for” wrong! I have to have someone else proof read it to let me know that I’m not saying a phrase right.

Comment on Making The Impossible Possible: How I Created A Full Time Blogging Income With No Qualifications by Andrew http://www.problogger.net/archives/2014/11/21/making-the-impossible-possible-how-i-created-a-full-time-blogging-income-with-no-qualifications/comment-page-1/#comment-5317507 Thu, 27 Nov 2014 15:46:37 +0000 http://www.problogger.net/?p=33805#comment-5317507 Hi Stacey,

Truly an inspiring and telling story. Thank you for sharing that with is.

Not following the crowd is a really good way to stand out. I only started blogging a year ago and until 4 – 6 months ago, I did everything everyone else did. I wrote the same way. Wrote about the same things. Followed their tone and their ways of writing. And that got me …. NOTHING.

Then, 4 – 6 months ago, after being frustrated, I said .. enough. And I decided to change up my writing style and write more the way I talk (without the little bits of profanity) and also talk about things, or have a different approach to writing things. And so far that’s been great for me.

I would recommend ANYONE just being themselves when writing.

I LOVE this point you made, “By keeping some of your best work for other people’s blogs, you’re making a bold statement. You’re telling people that you care about quality, that you’re not just about self-promotion.”

I just recently started guest posting and I love it. And what you said there is true. So true, in fact, that I have 51 drafts on my post and 35 of them are “potential” guest posts. They’re not completed, though, but they’re there in case I need them for a guest post.

Anyway great post and thanks for sharing a bit of your story with us.

Have a great day.

- Andrew
