Carol Tice started her blog, Make a Living Writing, in 2008.
It took her a few years to get her blog off the ground, but by 2011, she was already pulling in a six-figure income… With a ~2,000 subscriber email list!
Today, she makes over $500,000 a year with less than 20,000 subscribers.
“Wait, how is that even possible?” you might think. “Don’t you need to have hundreds of thousands of email subscribers and get millions of pageviews to make that kind of money?”
Well, apparently, you don’t.
Adding workshops simply creates another stream of revenue that you can sell over and over again.
According to Forbes, e-learning is truly a profitable market, expected to hit $107 billion in sales by the end of this year.
Of course, that number includes all types of online training programs, so your niche may or may not fall on the higher end of that spectrum. Still the industry is expected to grow, so it’s never too late to get in on the earnings, especially if you have something of importance to say.
Schools, universities and education departments can greatly benefit from webinars, as they can simulate traditional classrooms without their time and space limitations.
In this time and age of high-speed Internet and fast paced development, how could education departments offer a quality learning experience that marries time and space considerations with the almost limitless bounds and appeal of the Internet?
As it may be a matter of sinking or swimming with the tide, academic institutions are increasingly keeping afloat with the aid of webinars.
Managing a blog is not easy work, especially if you strive to publish quality posts that your readers love while you must also make time to develop other products, run your newsletter and social channels, and possibly even publish a few guest posts.
If you are just getting started with blogging or you have to leave your blog to handle itself for a while, all of that to-do might sound even more daunting.
This post comes to your rescue: whether you are a beginner or a veteran blogger, it will guide you through the basics of blog planning to successfully integrate guest posts and social media marketing into your blog calendar.
Every craftsman knows that to get a job done well, you need to have the right tools.
Although there are many marketing tools that can help you get your message out there, webinars rank as the #1 tool for modern day marketing.
Webinars give marketers the chance to demonstrate and showcase their products to a live audience. What’s more, you can interact with your audience in a real-time.
Of course, there are other tools that are necessary parts of your online marketing toolkit. For example, social media marketing is a great way to post targeted pay-per-click ads and strengthen customer loyalty in your brand. Email marketing is a great way to sell your products and reach many customers. However, none of these tools matches what webinars can do in terms of marketing. In fact, online
conferences can be used to both boost your email marketing campaign and strengthen your social media strategy.
Speed impacts your bottom line more than you think it does. Nearly 80% of shoppers who are disappointed with a website’s performance will less likely purchase from it in the future. Because a majority of people have gone mobile, marketers are even more challenged to deliver the fastest mobile pages.
While marketers can individually deal with slow loading pages by using strategies such as decreasing page elements, removing some widgets, simplifying website theme, and using a content delivery network (CDN), building a website on a platform that automatically ensures fast speed is a solution that takes every marketer’s efforts further.
With all these growing complaints on slow web pages regardless of whether manual methods have been used to shorten a page’s loading time, one may wonder:
Is there any website builder taking the lead on addressing people’s need for speed?
As you work on a roundup piece for your blog or newsletter, you may be thinking something along these lines:
“This piece will generate more traffic and/or subscribers than my other posts or emails, since it circulates ideas and encourages conversation.”
Well, that’s certainly true. No type of content can spark conversation, social shares and circulate ideas like a good roundup piece.
But here’s the catch: your content will only work that way if you create a roundup that you know your readers will love, otherwise it will be a waste of time.
Semantics are now at the core of every search query answered on Google. As important as semantics are to Google, semantic SEO should hold equal value in your digital strategy for 2017 and the future.
That means you need to be well equipped with powerful search optimization tactics to rank content above your competitors on the largest search engine in the world — the search engine that caters for at least 5.5 BILLION searches every day.
If you care about earning “free” traffic to your website, it’s a volume you simply can’t afford to disregard.

Building a solid reader-base is without doubt something every blogger is striving for. That is the first step to actually converting your visitors and making them part of your brand.
