The fundamentals of making money are very simple; in order to make money, you must be providing a service or selling a good that other’s want to buy. If you’re not offering that service, no one will buy your product. That’s how me and my business partner came about our latest business idea.
As most of my readers know, I started my blog “Financial Nerd” a few months ago and it has been great. I’ve been able to share some of my awesome money saving/invest business ideas and I’ve had a good share of followers check out my blog. I wanted more readers to read my blog and appreciate some of the insights that I was offering to others. And as other bloggers know, the hardest part of starting a blog is getting followers. That’s when I discovered carnivals. Carnivals are really useful because they essentially help you market your blog out on other sites.
As most bloggers know, applying to be in carnivals is very tedious and requires a lot of time in submitting information to the ones that even post articles related to the one you wrote. My first time applying for a carnival, I spent nearly an hour submitting my information to each carnival.
Below is a list of carnivals that I applied to for those looking to get into what carnivals are.
List of Carnivals
If you’re looking to get into financial blogging and want more publicity for your posts, then apply to carnivals. They are fun and provide great opportunities to market your blog and you can find other great bloggers that post interesting pieces on financial topics. Till next time.
Good list, yes participation in carnival is great way to market, network and share. Thanks for sharing
Blog carnivals are an awesome way to get free back links to your site. Think of all the guest posts you’d have to write to achieve the same number of back links back to all your articles.
I couldn’t agree more. One of these days, I’ll finally get my page rank!
I haven’t done any blog carnivals as of yet. I am not sure when I will start but I need to get on the guest posting soon though. Congrats on starting the new site. Marketing and networking are key!
