Guest Post: When You Should Give Out Your Work For Free?

Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: One thing I’ve struggled with as a blogger trying to attract new readers is the level of content you give away for free to draw in your readers. Some people give such amazing content away for free that I would have sold! Then on the other hand, I feel like things I consider giving away are too lackluster and nobody will bite. Does this sound familiar? If you are also finding it tough to determine when to give your work away for free, then today’s post is for you. My guest, Maurine Anderson, is sharing how you know when it’s the right time to give your goods away, free of charge.

It seems that the more and more digital we get, the more people expect access to free content and services. While this increased access to free content and services is a great thing in many ways, it can really complicate things for bloggers and business owners. How do you get consumers to see the value of paid content or services? When is it appropriate to ask people to pay for your work, and when might it be beneficial to give out your work for free?

Guest Post: Tips for Beginning Bloggers

Note from Lana / Lifestyle Queen Bee: I have a secret to share. Lifestyle Queen Bee is NOT my first blog. I started a blog 8 years ago when my then-boyfriend (now husband) and I were on our journey of buying our first home. It was a big deal for us both because we were 24 years old, buying our first home, living together for the first time AND living away from our parents for the first time (it was also the first time I’ve ever moved in my life!). I thought sharing the journey would be a great way to share our story with our friends and maybe inspire others to start their own home buying journey. Well, I sucked at it. HARD. I wrote in a voice that wasn’t mine, saying things I thought my readers wanted to read. So I quickly abandoned it. Fast forward to last June, when I got bitten by the blog bug again. After some internal debate, I went for it but this time, being sure I was writing in my voice, about things I was interested in and I’m happy to say I’m still at it! All this to say, Continue reading “Guest Post: Tips for Beginning Bloggers”

Guest Post: How to Have a Professional Looking Blog on a Low Budget

Note from Lifestyle Queen Bee: When I first decided to start this blog, my goal from the very beginning was to monetize it so that it could be a source of passive income for myself. When you’re first starting out, sometimes you don’t have a ton of extra cash (if any at all!) to put into building & growing your blog/business. Not to mention all the research you typically conduct trying to figure out the best platform for your blog, your niche, etc. Today, Guest Maurine Anderson is helping cut all the guesswork out as part of Continue reading “Guest Post: How to Have a Professional Looking Blog on a Low Budget”
