The Importance of Having a "Hire Me" Navigation Tab on Your Blog

Do you have your own blog? Are you a subject expert in the topics and interests you blog about? Better yet, do you want to become the subject expert people turn to when they have questions? Does making money blogging and business consulting sound exciting to you?

Let me cut right to the chase with this post, if you want to make money blogging and business consulting, it is imperative you have a "Hire Me" navigation tab. Having a "Hire Me" navigation tab is like having a person in a gorilla suit in front of your retail store trying to get people inside. You don't need to make the same mistake I did for years, learn from my past experience. Here is what happened, I provided great daily content on my blog called eioLIFE, people visited the site, and a lot of them, and in return for providing great content every single day, I received the feeling of fulfillment everyday.

Notice how I never mentioned money in the above description, this is the reason why, I started my blog to enable me to learn more about my topics of interest and bookmark the sites and information I wanted to retain and reteach to other entrepreneurs. Over time and through countless hours of my wife continually asking me what in the world I am doing in front of the computer, I have become an industry expert, mentor and strategic corporate advisor to other entrepreneurs. In the beginning, I was not able to charge for my consulting services, now that I am regarded as an industry expert, I needed to act like one and start charging for my services.

So, in summary, the way that was most effective for me to let people know I can help provide direction and success to them for a fee was by placing a "Hire Me" navigation tab on my blog. The "Hire Me" navigation tab doesn't have to be anything fancy, it just needs to be simple and let people know, I am regarded as an industry expert and I provide a value add service that can help you, the client, become better at what you do. For example, this is my "Hire Me" navigation tab from eioLIFE.
