Sell Your Stuff from the Pages of Your Blog - dummies

By Shannon Belew, Joel Elad

Just because you have a blog and share your opinions doesn’t mean you can’t earn money selling stuff. As with a traditional website, you may choose to sell products that complement or tie in to the topic of your blog.

For example, Invitation Crush, shown in the following figure, is a blog about, you guessed it — invitations.


In addition to sharing a love for all types and styles of invites, blogger Kristen Magee sells a variety of invitations for all occasions. It’s a natural product extension for the theme of her blog. One day, for example, she may blog about the popular letterpress printing style used for custom baby announcements.

After reading about this style of invitation or announcement, you can peruse the Invitation Crush shop and find letterpress cards for your own special occasion.

Regardless of the theme of your blog or the types of products you want to sell (handmade or store bought), offer complementary items, products that reflect the theme and style of your blog.
