What 1 Concept Makes Most Bloggers Stumble?

I get only a few emails daily. But the conversion rate of my emails is extremely high. Why? I target everything ruthlessly.

For example; I removed my contact page years ago. Anybody who emails me needs to do the research, legwork and needs to put in effort to find my email link via my About Page.

Someone needs to get to know me. Someone needs to dig. Someone needs to REALLY WANT TO appear on Blogging From Paradise to find my email.

If someone really wants to appear on Blogging From Paradise, a high percentage of these people pay me money to guest post on my blog. A few folks pitch me guest posting opportunities. A high percentage of these people pay my rate, land guest posts and we both win.

I make money blogging. The person who wants to guest post on my blog guest posts on my blog.


I finally embraced the one concept that makes most bloggers stumble:

Reaching highly targeted, hungry human beings versus chasing a high volume of human beings helps you make the most money blogging.

This concept feels painful to most bloggers because most nod, then, in the next breath, wildly try to drive a huge amount of traffic to blog posts. Perhaps you drive 50,000 people to a single post. But you make 0 dollars through the post. Why? None of the 50,000 people were highly targeted people who want what you have to offer.

But highly targeting your blogging campaign ensures you make money blogging. Highly interested, hungry people buy your stuff and hire you sooner than later, in most cases. Or these hungry folks buy your stuff or hire you down the road.

Back to the post…….

Most bloggers make it painfully easy to be contacted because most *FEAR* not enough people contact them. Most bloggers boast of getting a high volume of emails daily. But their conversion rate is terrible.

Plus they waste minutes, hours and even weeks replying to people who have little to no interest in their offering, because these pitchers were lazy people who copy and paste generic emails and desperately scramble to find easy to contact bloggers, via easy to see contact pages and easier to use contact forms.

Do you want to give your ego a boost? Try to be popular.

Do you want to actually make money blogging and go pro? Pinpoint highly targeted, hungry people who crave what you offer.

I speak to a few people via email daily but virtually all are highly interested in my blog, business and brand. I never do metrics but know the percentage of people who pay me to guest post on my blog is much higher than other bloggers who share such conversion rates. Makes sense. Most bloggers love big numbers but give little thought to targeted, highly interested human beings.

I only intend for hungry people hellbent on landing on my blog, to find me. These people usually pay me to appear on my blog. We both win. Do you see how going pro requires having posture? I feel good not to receive a high volume of emails. I have no interest in scanning emails daily. I love writing and publishing blog posts and guest posts. I love profiting through passive income channels.

Especially when I begin traveling again, I always love being free to circle the globe while not being tied down to my email inbox, or any consulting business requiring my presence in front of a laptop screen.

Target your readers. Prosper. Stop wasting time with a bunch of folks who care little about what you do.
