CRC Friday Update

Another Friday is here with the weekend approaching!

 

I am up in New Hampshire this week meeting with my business partner and friend Debora McLaughlin. We have had a great whirlwind of activity here with business meetings, collaborative partnership meetings and networking. I was thrilled to get to attend a women’s networking luncheon. I learned so many great things from this group of women.

 

Last week I told you about the great pastry chef that I met at the NJAWBO Procurement event. Well, she made the most impressive cookies for our presentation with the Real World Leadership logo on the cookie. We left a lasting impression!! We were also thrilled to have a couple of extras for tasting! They are delicious as well. www.cookiecrumbproductions.com

 

The real value of networking, new business connections, and relationships.

 

I am heading back from NH today and will be on the road all day but wanted to get this out to you first!

 

Enjoy the Friday Update!

Article: Why Writing is Valuable to Your Business

 

Writing, Content and Why It All Matters!

 

Once you start compiling your content and adding it to your blog, it’s time to start thinking about how you can make money with your new found information. I’ve got a few ideas to help you get started, so let’s get to it – I know this is what you were waiting on wasn’t it?

 

For many business owners they totally miss out on the value of their content and writing and that they can use and reuse the same content to build their business. So, let’s talk about some of the ways that you can use your valuable content to monetize your business:

 

1. Publish a Book: Once you have written an E-Zine or Blog for a few months, you most likely have enough content to publish a book or an e-book. On Tuesday’s radio show we will be talking with Joyce Restaino about just this very thing. Using your content for creating a valuable resource for your subscribers or clients.

 

2. Promote Affiliate Programs

Finding products you can promote within your content is a great way to make money with your blog. One way to do this is to sign up for an affiliate program for the items you would like to promote. Once you’ve found them and signed up you’ll receive a link (your affiliate link) that you can use to send your blog readers to the product. When they make a purchase using your link, you’ll be rewarded with commissions.

 

We have an affiliate program here with Bizology.Biz through ClickBank. It is a way for people that find Bizology.Biz valuable to share it with their contacts and then earn a commission for each sale. In fact, with Bizology.Biz the commission is a recurring one as it is a monthly program. So, our affiliates keep earning money for each month that their referral stays in the program. www.bizology.biz/affiliates

 

We also have an affiliate program at the Real World Leadership Institute for folks that know frustrated leaders

www.realworldleadershipinstitute.com/affiliates

 

When posting your content, think of items that will compliment the content and search for affiliate programs for those types of products. For instance, if you’re posting an article that discusses using video online, you could promote the software you use to create your own videos. Do you have a product or service you love and couldn’t live without? Put together a product review and use your affiliate link to send your reader to the company’s website. A word of caution with reviews – a reader can tell if you’re just pushing a product to make a sale so be honest. If there is something you don’t like about it, tell them.

You can find affiliate programs in many places, but here are a few I recommend:

 

The Company’s Website – More and more business owners are realizing just how much creating an affiliate program for their products and services can increase business. Check right on the company’s website for information on how to sign up for their affiliate program.

 

Affiliate Networks – You can find tons of products in every market you could dream of here. Just sign up for a free publisher account, locate products you’d like to promote. That’s all there is to it. www.ClickBank.com

 

Free Affiliate Articles – If you’re looking for content that is ready for affiliate links visit www.FreeAffiliateArticles.com and you’ll find a bunch.

 

Mom Affiliate Network – If you cater to the mom market, I highly recommend checking this site out for family friendly products.

 

You’ll also find programs to help Internet marketers and those who want to work from home here. www.MomAffiliateNetwork.com

 

Search Engines – Many times you can put the type of product you’re looking to promote plus the words “affiliate program” into your browser’s search feature and you’ll find lots of options.

 

Selling other people’s information is just one way that you can monetize your blog or website. You can also take your own valuable content and create books, products and your own affiliate program.

LinkedIn for Business

May 6th 2011

12 Noon – 1:30 PM EST

http://www.bizology-linkedin.eventbrite.com

 

Many people that I talk to say that they keep getting invitations from people on LinkedIn but they don’t know what to do with them. Others say they did set up their profile but then didn’t know what to do. With 80+ million people on LinkedIn I know that there are business prospects for you.

 

Join me on Friday, May 6th at noon to learn how to connect, how to build trusted relationships and really utilize LinkedIn to your business advantage. It is a very cool networking tool AND it does take some work to get to know it and how to really use it. Let me show you the way. LinkedIn is another strategy for getting traffic to your website. In the search engines your LinkedIn profile could rank higher than your website, but what a great thing. Everything we do on the Internet is about increasing our web ranking, increasing our web traffic, building new networks and relationships AND ultimately increasing our business. LinkedIn is ONE more strategy that is very powerful for doing all of that. Don’t miss out on the webinar!
