I know that often times businesses create blogs to promote their business. However, often we forget that we can create a business from our blog. Today we will explore how to do just that.
Build Your Brand
You have a loyal following and regular traffic, have you ever thought of of creating your own brand? When I speak of 'brand' I am referring to a product that is manufactured under a particular name. Do you know that you can create your own tag line, logo or use your blog name on various products such as t-shirts, caps, pens, mugs and buttons? The interesting thing about all of this is that there are a number of companies that offer this service.
This can be done with the help of any one of these websites:
I like Spreadshirt.com the best because you can open your own online t-shirt shop for free and sell custom t-shirts and other apparel with your designs, logos or text. Spreadshirt takes care of the production, shipping and service. You can set commission on each product and earn money each time you make a sale.
Also, you can sell your designs, without a shop. Create custom t-shirts and other apparel with your own designs and sell through their Marketplace. You can also sell your designs from their T-Shirt Designer. You set a commission on your designs and earn money for each sale.
Write a Book
Have you ever thought about turning you blog content into a book? It is easy with a site call lulu.com. You sign up for free, upload your book and they will publish your book for you. You set your book cost and they get a percentage of the sale. (For further details see lulu.com)
Market Your Talents
Bloggerjobs.biz offers bloggers the ability to market their talents. You are able to gain employment for positions that you qualify for. All of this is targeted at bloggers. Inessence you are building a blogging career. This i would say is a must see.
