  1. This is very helpful! I do struggle with selling and I’m not focussing enough on it. You’re right, I’m not running a charity and I should change my mindset about selling. Thank you, I needed this!

  2. I totally agree when you said that we have to start having a selling mindset from day one. It is however not that much of a result but will definitely benefit in the long run. On a different perspective a business should also have a website where you could have blogs on the side.

    1. Hi TJ! Thanks for your comment. I don’t say that you should sell from day 1, but that you should have the mindset for it. Before you sell, it’s important to develop trust and like with your readers. Otherwise, people won’t buy from a stranger that they hardly know, like or trust.

  3. Thanks for sharing this info. I agree with you about “Selling Is Like A Dirty Word” and I find it’s not just with Bloggers but also with people who want to sell their expertise online. I see people complain about people wanting to charge them for their knowledge and expertise, like it’s an issue to want to make money. Time for a change.

    1. Hi Karletta! Thanks for your comment. I definitely agree with you. If you’re offering a valuable product or service, you should get paid for it, unless you’re offering it for free (which, let’s face it, as bloggers we do). No one would expect to get free service or product outside of blogging world.

  4. You’ve offered some great points here! I really think that that mindset of selling and it being sort of a dirty word and having negative connotations makes a bloggers job really difficult sometimes. If you can really focus on the fact and drive your focus to giving valued resources to your audience, it’ll never feel like selling. Great post! Thank you!

    1. I completely agree with you Sasha! To me, the trick is in offering value. If I feel that the person in front of me is helping me with their product or service, then I don’t even think twice about the concept of ‘selling’
