Today I had the opportunity to take part in an on-line blogging seminar. This is rare for me. Since I work, I usually don’t get a chance to. This seminar was about monetizing your blog. The seminar was hosted by Helen of Helen In Between and here is what I learned
- Take Action! It takes money to make money. Of course, this is a phase that we have all heard over and over. It is true, but you don’t have to break the bank to do it. So today I took my blog being free to the preminum package. This will allow me to monetize the blog. I was under the impression that I needed a lot of views before I did so, but base on what I learned today I decided to go for it. It’s an investment.
2. Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail This is another truth. In my full-time job, planning is key to our success. I didn’t really understand how this related to blogging. This is something that I need to learn and implement into my blogging . Honestly, most of the time I don’t know what I’m going to write about. So, it will be key that I come up with a plan that works for me.
3. Never Stop Learning I am a firm believer in this. As I wrote in my last post, I have a lot of books that I am currently reading to make the most of my handmade business and this blog. At the end of this free seminar Helen offered additional training at a cost, but it did offer a lot of useful information, so I am considering signing up. It is a limited offer so I need to make my mind up soon. Again, I need to think of it as an investment.
I will let you know if I decide to enroll in Helen’s on-line training. It is entriging and my husband gave me the go ahead should I decide to do it.
