With 2012 just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what you’d like out of your business in the coming year.
I think “Make More In 2012” is a GREAT theme and goal!
Here are 5 Steps that you can take to expand your business and earn more in the coming year:
Affiliate Marketing – If you already have a blog and/or website, you have everything you need to get started in affiliate marketing. As an affiliate, you will help other businesses market their products and services. You can do this by writing a review on your blog, posting graphics on your sidebar, sending out a tweet, etc. You will have a special link to use. If someone uses that link to purchase a product, you will earn commission.
Working With Brands – This is a big one! Now, sometimes you will get paid outright by the brand for hosting a giveaway, but sometimes you will get paid in other ways. For example, you might get free products to try. If you start doing giveaways, you’ll get more traffic to your blog, and that can help you earn more with Adsense, Affiliate Marketing, and any ads that you sell outright on your blog.
Creating Your Own Info Product – I know that a lot of people are intimidated by this. Don’t fall into that trap! There are things you know that other people want to know. There’s nothing stopping you from creating an ebook, a sewing pattern, etc, and then selling them. What knowledge do you have that you can share?
Teaching An Online Class – You can also take the above step and kick it up a notch by creating your own online class. This is a more hands-on way to share your knowledge. You don’t need any special teaching certificates to teach your own class online. All you need is the willingness to share what you know. You don’t even have to invest any money into special programs. There are many ways to teach a class online — for free!
Create Your Game Plan & Start Marketing – Now that you know several ways to expand your income, you need to sit down and create a game plan. When are you going to start implementing these things into your business? Write out your goals now. For example, decide that you’re going to have your first info product ready by March 15 or that you’re going to offer your first online class on June 1.
Then, once you have these things in place you need to start marketing them. Don’t be afraid of self-promotion. If you don’t tell people you’re offering these things, they can’t buy them from you.
