If you’ve created one of these 7 types of products to sell on your blog, or you’re going to start offering a service to your readers, then you need a sales page.
The sales page is (not surprisingly) a page on your blog that’s all about your product or service. You can link to it in the navigation menu, from an ad on your sidebar, from your social media accounts, and from guest posts.
As an example, here’s the sales page for Digital Photography School’s Photo Magic ebook.
While sales pages don’t need to be complicated, creating your first one can be daunting. You may have seen all [...]
It took me nearly seven years of blogging to create my first products: two ebooks, one for ProBlogger and one of Digital Photography School. They made me a total of over $160,000 in 2009 alone and changed my business.
Back in 2014, I wrote about the experience … and how it nearly never happened:
My big issue was a severe lack of time. Between juggling two growing blogs and a growing family (we had just had our first child), I wasn’t sure how I’d ever write an eBook. I also had a long long list of other excuses to put it off.
I’d never written, designed, marketed a product of my own be [...]
Is starting a new blog on your goals list for 2018?
If so – you’ll want to check out our brand new (and completely free) course – the Ultimate Guide to Starting a Blog.

So, my team and I began to plan a course that would go dee [...]

At a recent Christmas party a friend asked me a series of rapid-fire questions about blogging.
“Do you think I should start a blog in 2018? Or have I missed the boat with blogging? If blogging is still relevant, how could it benefit me? I guess I’m trying to work out… why should I start a blog?”
My friend isn’t the only one asking these kinds of questions.
At the start of every year a lot of people ponder whether a blog should be a part of their plans for the new year. And every January we see a spike in our Google Analytics where people are arriving from Google to a [...]

When you start a blog, you understandably look for advice from experts to help get you started. You look at countless blogs in your niche – ones that have probably been going for a while and enjoying various types of success.
It can be quite overwhelming, and sets you up for the comparison game and ‘perfection paralysis’ – not wanting to hit publish until your blog looks perfect.
Just recently we asked the ProBlogger Community to submit their stories of starting a blog, and their tips for those considering starting a blog in 2018. We received so many stories, some of which ha [...]
