One of the best things about offering services is that it’s a quick way to start making money with your blog. It doesn’t take as much traffic as you need to earn money with advertising. It’s really more about looking at the people who come to your blog, and figuring out what kind of services you can offer that will help them.
Today, we wanted to show you how that works in the real world, so we sat down to talk with Krystal Butherus, from Krystal’s Kitsch. Krystal is a stay at home mom blogger who is creating a full time income on her blog, and a big part of that income is from services she offers on her blog.
Krystal was kind enough to take a little time out of her busy day to tell us how she got started by helping out her friends, then advertising by word of mouth until she was able to actually leave her day job and turn her blog into a full time income.
A couple things – I love that Krystal doesn’t depend on one source of income for her blog, she’s diversified so that no matter what happens, she’s still got some income coming in.
I also love how she started taking action right away when she realized there were people she could help. She didn’t wait until she “knew everything” – because frankly, if you’re waiting until you know everything, you’re never going to start. There’s always going to be more to learn.
I hope you got a lot of value from the workshop today – now get out there and put it to work for you!
PS – Don’t forget to run over to Krystal’s Kitsch and tell her you saw her here on the workshop!
