7 Ways to Market and Monetize Your Business Online and in the Real World

Starting points, platforms, content creation, and more

Let’s talk. I don’t know about you, but I am all about tangible tips, tools, and technology to help you take action and get results now in marketing and monetizing your business.

I’m completely over college classes in textbooks and theory and no-real-world application. Oh yes, and I am over meetings in corporate America in some companies that accomplish nothing.

How about a hands-on session that you may read over and have multiple windows open at the same time to apply what I share here now? After all, haven’t we heard that applied knowledge is power? Isn’t it time we all practice what we preach?

So, let’s jump-start transformation, shall we? I recommend you set aside about 15-minute increments per area, or about two hours straight, so you take action on every item here.

It’s time to show up like a boss, entrepreneur.

7 Ways to Market and Monetize

It’s time to simplify and amplify marketing and monetizing your business online and live. You may be the best writer, online educator, and speaker. But if no one knows about you, how will you make money?

Many of us did not grow up with entrepreneurs so we get to shift our mindsets and equate being seen with service. It’s time to shine. With experience in more than seven industries in corporate prior to becoming a full-time entrepreneur in 2011, I transform daily in this area, too. I am right here with you.

In today’s online-saturated world, you either have to learn how to stand out or work with someone in the press that helps you stand out among the noise as an authentic, credible, and relatable expert.

Starting Points

Since we are on Medium, let’s talk about Medium. It’s not dead at all. I see people left and right breaking barriers here on Medium.

Since I have the tenacity of a pit bull (I was compared to a pit bull one time in a boardroom), I’ve kept going with Medium for over a year before finally feeling like I am growing rapidly.

Here’s an easy way to start growing on Medium:

  1. Post on your own profile and publication three or more times a week.

  2. Engage with the community on Medium itself, e.g., following, commenting, sharing.

  3. Join Medium-related Facebook groups.

  4. Share your posts from Medium off the platform, e.g., Twitter, LinkedIn, email newsletter, media page.

  5. Apply to be a contributor to aligned publications like Better Marketing.
