In the world of blogging, stretching your money as far as it can go is always important. The same is true with everything we buy in both life and businesses… if you have the opportunity to register a flight ticket for $500 or $750, which would you go with? Of course, you would want to save money wherever possible.
Not only has the internet made it easier for anyone to start a business through blogging or online marketing, it’s also made it a whole lot easier to save money when shopping for pretty much anything. One company that has done this better than anyone, is Groupon. Not only are they already installed as an application on many of our mobile devices, they also have coupons online for many websites and brands we shop from on a daily basis.
The good news is, if you are willing to take the time to look around for some nice money saving coupons and discount sites… that is exactly what you will find. Here are some great ones to help you get started with saving today!
With all of this in mind, I thought it would make for a great resource to remind all of the content creators, entrepreneurs and bloggers out there about some of the best ways to save money through their site. Whether it’s registering a domain name, setting up web hosting, ordering business cards or even getting your hands on some of the latest tutorials and video training material… Groupon has a relevant coupon on their site.
Need a new domain name or hosting?
If you don’t already have a website or blog, it’s likely you are simply in the decision process of what direction to go. Even if you do already have a site, you probably have thought about registering another domain name or setting up another hosting account elsewhere. In either case, Groupon has you covered with their GoDaddy coupons. Some of the latest promotions on their site include 93% off domains, making them only .99 cent each. 30% off new items and services offered through GoDaddy and also up to 50% hosting plans.
How about some business cards for your blog?
Even with websites and blogs getting the majority of their traffic from search engines and social media, it’s still kind of cool to have a physical business card with your name and blog address on it. These come in handy whenever you might be out talking to friends or family and want to get people to visit your site. It’s easy to forget a conversation with someone, but when you have a business card in your pocket, it’s a clear reminder to visit your site. If you have a blog or online business that is making money, a business card is definitely a requirement for continued success.
The big difference between business cards and printing services of today and years ago is that the costs and production process is much cheaper. Gone are the days when you need to hire a graphic design and pay a local printing company an arm and a leg to get 100 business cards printed. This can clearly be seen through the Vistaprint coupons currently available on Groupon, which features coupons for 40-50% business cards and printing services on their site. It’s never been cheaper and easier to get business cards printed up for your blog or business.. so what are you waiting for?
Improve your blog and marketing with an online video course!
Once you have a domain name, some fancy and business cards and your blog full of content, it’s time to start thinking about how you can really start scaling this thing out. Unfortunately, blogging can be a very slow process, especially if you are just starting out and trying to learn everything else yourself. The good news is that there are plenty of resources, tools, and online videos to help with this process.
One of the best sites for learning how to do anything is Udemy, which Groupon has plenty of coupons on. Most of the courses on Udemy are already discounted, however, if you come across one that isn’t, take a moment to try and apply a Udemy $10 coupon and see if it works or not. Once you start looking through what Groupon has to offer, you will find promotions ranging from 40%+ off, which makes the price of accessing any of these courses very affordable. If you are looking to get serious with your blogging efforts, I highly recommend checking out what Udemy has to offer by taking advantage of various Udemy coupon codes.
Never Pay Full Price for Your Blogging Materials Again
As mentioned at the beginning of the article, there are plenty of moving parts and components to creating a successful blog. Instead of jumping the gun and paying retail price for your next WordPress theme, domain name or hosting… be sure to spend some time to look for money-saving coupons online. If you visit any website or e-commerce store and see a “coupon code” field on the checkout form, it’s likely that you will be able to find some coupons online. Good luck and don’t forget us the next time you save some money online!
What Is Your Blog Post Publishing Frequency and Why?
From time to time, assess how frequently you publish blog posts. Ask yourself why? Sit. Wait for an honest answer.
I publish 4-5 blog posts daily. Sometimes I publish 6 posts. Why? I share oodles of helpful videos, podcasts and articles but on a deeper level, I intend to get my 124 eBooks in a billion hands or more. Yes; I wrote and self-published 124 bite-sized eBooks. Publishing 6 posts daily allows me to promote 6 different eBooks daily on my blog. I also publish 3 or more guest posts daily to share value and promote my eBooks in more spots. Note; that is 3 or more eBook promotions, in addition to all of my eBooks I promote on social media.
Promoting 124 eBooks daily is no joke. I needed to raise my vibe, practice writing and video and podcasting and get clear on upping my post frequency to drive traffic and business through an approach. I see my blog more as a high volume, blogging news portal, like CNN or Fox News, and less a blog for publishing weekly and leaving it at that. Hey; that is just me, though.
You may be different because all bloggers hold different intents and vibe at different frequencies. Imagine blogging once monthly. Today, you set an intent to publish 5 posts daily between videos, articles and podcasts. Seems foolish, right? Few humans make this quantum leap without putting in years of writing practice and also giving substantial attention and energy to energy management, or, mindset work. Never raise your blog post frequency from energies of fear and delusion; burnout and failure await.
But do bump up frequency if it feels fun, relaxing, prospering and generous to publish more frequently.
On the flip side, pull back on blog post frequency if your current schedule feels heavy, tiring, exhausting and overwhelming.
Only you know how frequently you post and why you post at that clip. You know the honest answer. Be straight with yourself.
Optimal Blog Post Frequency
Follow your fun and relaxation.
What feels really good and fun and relaxing, but maybe a bit uncomfortable, to you? Run with it. Daily? Awesome. Weekly? Cool. Twice daily? Great. One post, one day, and 3 posts, the following day? Why not? If readers enjoy your content they read your content, keeping up with what they can keep up with. Trust your gut.
I advise publishing at least weekly in most cases unless you publish a long form post monthly ranking well on Google, genuinely knocking folk’s socks off. Why? People forget you as you vanish from the stream for a month at a time. Blogs are news portals for your niche. News should not be published monthly. Weekly at a minimum works fine for news updates.
Making Money and Frequency
In my eBook:
I break down how you find buyers for your business online.
Pondering post frequency, money flows to frequent posters and less frequent posters. Everything money-wise depends on your clarity with receiving money and following your frequency strategy because your energy dictates your income. Feel good, and at peace, and relaxed, about your blog post frequency. Success will find you based on your money energy and life energy, independent of your blog post frequency.
Do the inner work and the outer results expand freely and easily over time.
Blogging Income Tip: How Do You Feel about Money?
As I promote my eBook:
I ponder one massive source of anxiety for most bloggers: money. Most of you grew up with money limiting beliefs. Money does not grow on trees. Money is not easy. Money is hard to get. Money is scarce. If you want money, get used to owning and facing each money fear because blogging full time requires you to work for free, generously, for a while, and no human with money fears works for free. All humans clinging to heavy money fears only work for pay. What is working for pay? Jobs. Working for someone allows you to get paid for every hour you work because being employees guarantees payment, per work, per your contract.
Guess what? Blogging is a different animal. Nobody gets paid to be an individual, business-owning blogger because blogging is a business. Business is about building something to boost skills and exposure to where your streams of income yield cash for you. Complete 180 from being an employee because you need face money fears, release fears, and proceed from a generous energy to gain skills and exposure enough to earn a full time income through your blog.
How do you feel about money? Does money feel scarce to you? Do you fear running out of money? Be honest guys. Being straight with yourself allows you to make money because before you make money through your blog, you need to face, feel and release money fears. Why? You never move into actions required to make money being burdened by the heavy fear of losing money, a yoke that saddles most of humanity.
I have noted how Gary Vaynerchuk did 2000 YouTube interviews before he began to get major media and TV coverage. He worked for free for 2000 interviews because he was not burdened by the terror of losing money, vibing abundance and generosity and trust. Most of humanity is so scared to lose all of their money that they never give one interview for free; these people work jobs to guarantee they get money for what they do work-wise, but sacrifice their fun and freedom in the process. You cannot live your dreams through blogging if you have no vision for the future and you cannot create a vision if you feel weighed down by the fear of money loss. How can you dream big dreams if you secretly feel terrified to lose it all? The fear of losing it all dominates your mind, body and actions so you will just work a job to get money and you will treat your blog casually, because your blog does not yield money, like your job.
Of course, your blog does not yield money because you vibe a poverty consciousness and poverty-vibing folks never do the generous giving – working for free, for a sustained period of time – to position themselves for success, a’la Gary Vee and his 2000 YouTube interviews. I have written and published nearly 1000 posts on Blogging Tips. Nobody paid me directly for writing and publishing these posts but the traffic and links and money I gained indirectly through these nearly 1000 posts helped me live a neat life. I began giving generously the moment I faced my money fears.
Expect to do the same if you want to live your dreams through blogging.
What Few Bloggers Understand
I live a pretty sexy life. I have circled the globe for the past eight years through blogging. Pretty cool, right?
But my blogging duties are seemingly mundane, not too sexy at all and in moments, quite boring. I genuinely love blogging. I have fun doing what I do. But I am also a human being experiencing a wide range of emotions on an hour to hour basis. Sometimes, I just want to go to sleep for a little bit because I feel tired and a bit bored with the blogging process. But if I intuitively know it is time to write a blog post I just write the blog post. In these moments, blogging feels boring and mundane and plain and not too sexy. But doing the seemingly mundane things in boring moments lays the foundation for living a spectacular dream life through blogging.
Few bloggers understand this basic fact of sometimes boring activities laying the foundation for a spectacular dream life. Most bloggers believe I do exciting, inspired and amazing things all day long to live an amazing life. This is 100% not true and nothing could be further from the fact. Blogging is fun for me most of the time but sometimes blogging feels boring. Even when blogging feels fun I am not doing anything earth-shattering or jaw-dropping anytime I write and publish blog posts and comment on blogs and promote one or all of my 100 plus ebooks. Does tapping a retweet button and sharing one of my eBooks on Twitter seem earth-shattering? Nope. Simple. East too. But few bloggers understand simple blogging activities lead to great blogging success.
Most bloggers believe you live your dreams through blogging by trying to knock the ball out of the park with viral blog posts and partnerships with the top bloggers on earth. Nope. You live your dreams by simply publishing helpful content, building friendships with top bloggers by being generous and asking for nothing, and by opening multiple streams of income from an abundant, trusting energy. Each of those steps is simple to put into action but sometimes taking each of those steps feel scary or highly uncomfortable. Nudge through the fear. Take the step. Simple, generous actions eventually lead to spectacular results because all meaningful blogging ventures begin with simple, generous actions. Do not believe top bloggers hit home runs everyday. We hit singles again and again and again and again for 10000 to 20000 hours until all those singles add up to something dazzling over the long haul.
Think in terms of tiny impressions made multiple times daily. I could have tried to write a viral guest post on this blog 3 years ago when I first published posts here. But I just chose to do a solid job writing a simple post some 900 times. Now I have written and published 900 + guest posts on this blog which means on a single blog alone I have 900 links or more, based on the ebooks of mine I link to as well. 900 + links leads up to something pretty sexy and spectacular but it was the simple, generous actions I took daily over 3 years of my life that led to the stunning long-term success. Blogging is doing simple things generously for hours daily for years of your life to build something special and meaningful.
Never believe that top bloggers hit home runs every day for a few weeks before they made it big. Anybody who makes it big does seemingly little things with love and generosity every single day over the course of years of their lives. Imagine 10000 to 20000 hours of doing simple things and you get an idea of what it takes to live a spectacular dream life through the medium of blogging.
