For the Blogger
As a blogger who works from home developing exceptional content for their site, you can easily take a couple simple steps to put your income on auto-pilot, such as:
- Automate Your Ad Sales – there are many WordPress plugins out there and if you know a coder, you can easily have them code out a system that allows all directly sold ad placements run in an automated fashion. This means that you can sell ad space in your sleep. Setup a filter so that the text link ads being purchased are within your ad requirements, such as being family friendly and then let that ad spot sit there while users can easily checkout and have their link placed automatically. If you prefer to use a plugin, look under WordPress plugins for ads via PayPal – there are a few out there that can make ad sales automated for you.
- Hire Content Writers – sure this will take some upfront time, but if you hire a team of writers who will ghostwrite for your blog then you will have a way for content to be ready, available and scheduled for publication without ever touching your blog dashboard. Many blogger’s are now realizing the value in having a team of ghostwriters, because it frees up time for them to spend with family while still allowing their blog to have valuable content which in turn makes them decent cash from ad networks such as Google AdSense.
For the Virtual Assistant
