This is the Perfect Time to Reboot Your Blogging Business

Reboot Your Blogging BusinessThis is the perfect time to reboot your blogging business.

We’re heading into the last few months of the year, and you still have time to turn a sluggish blogging business into a thriving one.

It’s also a great time to take what you’ve built to this point and make it explode.

Not getting any good results so far?

This is your time to turn that around.

Looking to improve your game and take it to a new level?

This is your time to add some new dimensions to your blogging business.

How is my blog doing?

Now here’s a few things you might think of doing.

First, take an assessment of your success up to now.

Are you getting what you want from your blog?

Some people are looking for income.

Others just want to build their personal brand.

Still others want to spread a message.

So take a moment to think about this.

What is the main reason you blog?

And are you accomplishing that goal in your blogging business?

How do bloggers make money from blogging?

All bloggers have asked themselves this question:

Blogging can be fun, but can I make money at it?

Let’s face it.

Most bloggers are looking to make money with their blogs.

So just how do bloggers make money from blogging?

Well, of course… they have to post valuable content.

They need to build a target audience.

And they need a regular, loyal readership.

But that’s not enough.

If you’ve done all those things, but still are not making money with your blog, you need to move on to the next level.

How do I choose a profitable niche for my blog?

Ok, so you have to wonder if you’ve chosen a “bad niche” or a good one.

It’s good to blog in a niche that you’re passionate about.

But is it a profitable niche?

Is it a niche that other bloggers are already making money with?

If it’s not, then you need to consider possibly changing your niche.

I did a 2 part series a while back on how to find your niche…

Finding Your Niche – Part 1
Finding Your Niche – Part 2

How do I convert my readers into buyers?

Now, just blogging in a profitable niche is not enough.

You also need to set your blog up to convert your readers into buyers.

It’s great to get a lot of readers, of course, but that will do you little good until you learn to do the things that will convert them into buyers.

Consider, for instance, the importance of taking action in sales when a lead shows interest in your content.

What is a sales funnel?

One of the most powerful ways to make your blog profitable is to draw them into your sales funnels.

Of course, you need to set those up strategically.

A sales funnel is simply a path you want your readers to take to be exposed to the products and services you offer.

If you get this part right, your blogging business can become immeasurably successful.

How can I get more traffic to my blog?

Traffic is the lifeblood of your blog.

Here are 25 Tips Guaranteed To Easily Increase Your Blog Traffic.

You need to find your target audience and give them a reason to visit your blog.

Sure, write great content ON your blog.

But find your audience OFF of it.

You will usually find them on social media sites, or even other blogs in your niche.

The important thing is to develop a very clear strategy for doing this.

It won’t happen if you just randomly paste some links back to your blog.

How do I sell a product or service to my readers?

Well, this is the big challenge, isn’t it?

I mean, you finally get a bunch of traffic and rave reviews.

But how do you sell a product or service to these people?

In fact, WHAT do you sell them?

What are the best things to offer your readers?

You have a lot of choices to make, here.

Will the products be your own digital products?

Here’s how to create your own product to sell online.

How about services, things you can DO for them?

Here’s 7 proven ways to sell services on your blog.

Maybe you want to sell other people’s products or services.

That means you need to figure out how to sell affiliate products.

You’ll need to know how to do product reviews on your blog, for instance.

Is it time to Reboot Your Blogging Business?

If you have all these things going for you…

  • profitable niche,
  • great content,
  • nice sales funnel,
  • good conversion strategies in place,
  • plenty of traffic, and
  • irresistible products and services to sell

…then you should already have a profitable blog.

Who should “reboot”?

But if you don’t, even though you’ve put all the pieces together…

Or, if you don’t because some of this is not well developed (like maybe you’re not getting enough traffic, or don’t have irresistible offers, etc)…

then this is the perfect time to Reboot Your Blogging Business.

In other words, to take what you’ve developed it and give it a fresh kickstart.

It’s time to reach the next level

Push it to the next level.

Don’t get stuck in the spot you’re at now.

It’s time for a new growth spurt.

The earth is spinning, it never sits still.

It’s tossing us into a new season.

So truly, this IS the perfect time to align your intentions to achieve Better Results from your blogging business, with the new energy that the Universe is giving us with approaching Autumn Season.

Click the image below, and join me on the 30 Day Challenge to Reboot Your Blogging Business.

So, what do you think?

Are you ready for the challenge?

Is it time to reboot your blogging business and give it some new life and Better Results?

I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.

And of course, I really look forward to working with you during the 30 Day Challenge to Reboot Your Blogging Business.

    Those questions help you drill down Donna. Weird how bloggers struggle because they fear asking the very questions that give them clarity, a sense of direction, and greater success. Ask. Wait for honest answers. Proceed based on the answers. No need to struggle when you have questions and answers within, to lead you in the proper direction.

    Awesome one, Donna.

    When you are not getting the desired result, the best thing to do is, Reboot.

    There’s no point trying hard to push it when it has reached the dead end. Like they say, what brought you here, can’t take you there. So, if you want to move faster, reboot.

    Thank you so much for this amazing post.

    Keep it up.

      Hi Emenike

      If you keep pushing hard when you reach a dead end you’re probably just going to end up getting burned out.

      Then you’ll end up heading in a whole new direction and get off focus completely.

      Just give your blog a fresh new start with a reboot.

      It doesn’t have to be a major undertaking… just get better results from minor tweaks.

    Hi
    Donna,
    If we aren’t getting success in our blogging business, then we need to reboot it and start again with clarity. If you don’t have a proper guide from the beginning then it will be hard to get success. So, I always try to learn new things about blogging business, especially from your blog. I have visited all the links you have listed in this blog post. But, it will take time to read all content so, I have bookmarked this post.

    Thank you so much for sharing this post with us.

    Best Wishes,

    Hi Donna!

    I hope you’re doing well.

    This is such an important post for bloggers to take note of. Because, unless you’re doing it as a hobby, you need to find ways to monetize it. But even if you’re just blogging as a hobby, you need to get your content in front of people, otherwise there’s no point.

    You can’t just stick some content in a blog post and hope for the best. Well, you can, but it ain’t gonna happen! You absolutely have to have a plan of action and know the “what”, “who”, “how”, “when” and “WHY” of what you’re doing. Otherwise you run the risk of spinning your wheels and getting to the grand old destination called “Nowhere”, along with the partner town of “Frustrated”.

    As always, you’ve hit the nail firmly on the head with this post, Donna, and you’ve given your readers plenty of valuable information that they can go away and apply to their blogging.

    Have a great rest of the week! 🙂

    Hello Donna,

    Wonderful post as usual. A self assessment is very important and it helps to sort out the issues that you are facing. I never blog for money. I believe in helping others as much as possible and you know it automatically open the doors of good monetization. When you provide relevant and quality information with reference of a good product and services, you instantly boost up your sales and conversions. This is the good way to do blogging online. What you think about this? Thanks for sharing these helpful insights here.

    Have a Great day 🙂

      Hi Vishwajeet

      I think that’s excellent advice.

      If you blog every day intent on helping other people have better lives – then you’re going to build a strong following.

      Being a “valuable resource” to people is the foundation of any good business… and certainly blogging.

      You don’t have to worry about trying to make money because it will just happen … as long as your blog is properly set up to convert your loyal readers into buyers and clients.

    Hi Donna and welcome back.

    Great post. I’ve been trying to reboot my blog for months now and I think Google has me buried so far in cyberspace, I’ll never come out. When I lost my blog earlier this year (well really twice), I’m trying to repopulate it but not fast enough.

    I have so many of my old blog pages that are out there but when someone clicks on a link, they go to an error page. I try to find the post (because I do keep most everything I write) and put it up but I’m not seeing that it’s helping.

    So I’m not sure what to do other than keep on.

    Thank you again always for your help.

    Hi Monna

    With these kinds of problems you really need to consider a reboot.

    But not just a reboot of your “blogging business” – but maybe your blog itself, too.

    Rebooting for you could even mean just starting a new blog all together.

    Hopefully you have the text of your previous blog posts, or otherwise – you just may have to start fresh.

    Sometimes that can actually be a good thing if you do it right.

    Good luck with it 🙂

    I appreciate this, Donna.
    When I first started, a renowned blogger wrote we needed a sales funnel. I responded by asking what that was and she didn’t respond. Now, I tell people what they are and how to monetize. You gave an understandable explanation. Your post lets people know these dreams are possible.

    Hey Donna ,

    Great article. There is always room for improvement. If something is not working, rebooting is the best idea. All the big companies do that even if they are doing really great. Sometimes it is a hit other times it could be a miss.

    Couldn’t agree more. Reflection on your blog and blogging success is key to success. Only then one understands the problems and can do something about it. We all go through the cylces of up and down and our blogs are not immune either. I myself had to go through a bit of a sluggish period but thankfully, I am back up and running. Cheers for sharing the article. Ahmad

    Most of the blogger is not successful at the first time, instead of giving up the blog we need to hit the reset button. The reset button is just like a refresh button it just makes the clutter cleaning and gives our blog a new look and make us plan good things in the future
