As you have astutely noticed, we have barely talked about making a single dollar. That’s because building trust is the hugely important first step in any endeavor. Building trust involves giving value, giving value, and then giving more value to your community without asking anything in return. Along the way, you can set up a donation page your community can give to. But if your audience feels you are just doing something to make a quick buck off them, they will quickly hit the ‘X’ off your page. Once your audience trusts you are genuine, authentic, and the real deal, you can offer eBook sales, online courses, or sell physical products.
