722400708_5dfa0d0d38_zThis recipe gets so much flavor from the balsamic vinegar, that it doesn’t need other ingredients added in order to taste great. Delicious!

Ingredients

Salad

3 medium potatoes, cooked till tender but firm
1/4 cup red onion, chopped

Dressing

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 – 3/4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
3/4 – 1 tsp. salt

Directions

Place all salad ingredients and half of the dressing in a storage bowl with a tight lid. Shake to combine.
Add additional dressing, if needed, and shake again.

Note: Depending on the size of the potatoes, there is sometimes leftover dressing. The dressing makes a delicious sandwich spread if used within a few days.

Variation: Additional vegetables can be added. Some good choices are chopped raw carrots, green olives, chopped celery

How can I make more money from my craft or food blog?

That’s what every blogger asks himself/herself once in a while. While that’s a good question, it’s not the only good one.  There are a lot of other questions, that can also lead to an increase in income

Indirect questions:

How can I improve my blog?

How can I give my reader an excellent experience?

How can I make my blog unique?

How can I keep my readers coming back?

How can I increase my page views?

How can I improve individual articles?

How can I keep my readers on my blog longer?

How can I improve my writing skills?

How can I improve my photography skills?

How can I improve my tutorials?

How can I get more links to my blog?

How can I promote my blog better?

What would my current readership like to know more about?

What is one thing I can do today to improve my blog by 5%?

How can I serve my readers better?

Some of these questions might not seem like they will lead to an increase in income, but they will.

A better blogs leads to links, social media shout outs, loyal readership; all things that lead to more interested eyes on your page. More eyes=more chances that your ad, class, product will be perused.

Direct questions:

What unfulfilled needs do my readers have?

How can I make more money from the readers I already have?

How can I use better paying keywords?

What classes, ads, services might interest my readers?

What products are hard for my readers to locate?

What kind of products would improve my readers lives?

What kind of information would improve my readers lives?

What kind of services would improve my readers lives?

What kind of products do my readers buy?

What kind of problems to my readers have? What worries them?

How do my readers relax, play, make money?

As you may have noticed, many of these questions are based around what you can do to improve the lives of your readers. 

We are not just being altruistic. Whether we realize or not, the real basis behind all financial transactions is the customers belief that the product will make him happier. No one makes a purchase unless he or she believes it will improve her life (at least for a few minutes).  By understanding this, we can use this mindset to become more in touch with what our readers are most likely to spend money on.

Give these questions a try. They might revolutionize the direction your money making efforts take.
