Post after post, that I read, on what has helped my fellow bloggers mentioned this book, How To Blog For Profit: Without Selling Your Soul. I read it myself several months ago and can see why it is so popular. Ruth Soukup has some fabulous tips for newbie and seasoned bloggers alike. I want to go back through this wonderful book of tips and see how I can continue to improve the blog here at Immensely Social. And, of course, I thought of you- My Dear Readers!

This book is an Amazon Bestseller for a reason. The reason I believe this to be the case is practicality. When it comes to blogging, I want to get right down to business. No fluff, just actionable steps.
• Discover the secrets to creating amazing, compelling blog content that brings readers back again and again.
• Learn how to increase your blog traffic and build solid platform through field-tested strategies.
• Develop a solid social media strategy for capturing viral growth through Pinterest and Facebook.
• Dramatically boost your revenue through diversified income streams.
• Improve your productivity, learning to work smarter not harder, and take concrete steps to transform your blog into a business.
How to Blog for Profit is about gimmick free blogging. It is about treating your blog as a business without sacrificing quality content for your readers.
“The secret to successfully blogging for profit is learning to maintain authenticity with your readers while at the same time successfully navigating the behind-the-scenes waters of running a business and building a brand.”
Ruth talks to us about everything from finding your “blogging awesome” to plugins, pinnable graphics, and traffic. Ruth was one of the first to get me into Blog Hops and Link Parties. Ruth is brilliant when it comes to blogging practicality and How to Blog for Profit is the best blogging book I have read thus far.
You guys know that I’m addicted to Pinterest and it’s one of the best platforms for bloggers. Ruth got me creating more niche boards and I love how organized my account feels now. Compelling Content + Highly Pinnable Images = Pin-Worthy Posts!
All the Pinterest tips are just a bonus in relation to the info available, so be sure to read the book for yourself! I think I’m going to just re-read the whole thing and see what I still need to implement! Would love to hear about your favorite tips.
