Social Media Management Services
If you have a large number of followers on a Social Media Platform, you can offer blog services as a Social Media Manager.

Other bloggers need help writing lead magnets, sales funnels, and plain old content that converts. Market those skills on your blog! A great example Marketing awesome writing skills is Elna Cain. Elna has 5 blogs and she markets her Freelance Writing Services along with her Freelance Writing Courses. Go Girl!!
Pinterest Virtual Assistant
You may consider offering services as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant. I worked with a VA earlier in the year, she also had her own blog (different niche than mine). She worked in helping me solicit group boards to join and increase followers. Other services you may offer are group board management for pins. Rotating pins or even coming up with a system (spreadsheet, etc. ) for another blogger to keep track of rotating pins.
Managing a blog can be very time-consuming. Posting posts and adding links, tags, snippets can be times consuming. Let’s not mentioning formatting page categories when adding new post additions. Offering a service to take this task on will help a blogger out tremendously.
Facebook Page / Ads Virtual Assistant
Setting-up and assisting in managing a Facebook page can be another service offering. Also, strategically running ad campaigns for other bloggers on Facebook is a solution some bloggers may need. Companies hire a person for Facebook campaign managers but you’ll have a leg-up on the competition because you execute your own.
If you love creating lead magnets and have proven success in cultivating an email list, you may want to consider offering this service on your blog. Coaching other bloggers and strategizing with them on creating optins or helping map out their email automation based on their visitor’s actions, is vital and takes an experienced blogger who’s been there triggered that. A great example of offering this service is Emily with Social Buzz Hive.
Pin Designer/Ad Creator
Creating attractive, click-worthy pins is an art. Some bloggers need a little extra help in that area. They may write an amazing post but their pin just isn’t eye-catching or appealing to the masses. Offering services to create Pins or Ads on Facebook or Instagram is an excellent service to offer if you have an artistic eye for pins. Kristin at Apple Cart Lane, a graphic designer, and blogger offers pin designer and free design courses. Check her out!
I know some bloggers utilize bullet journals to write down items when the Muse strikes. I’m a digital girl and my G Drive is a bit of a mess. I open up a document and start typing a topic and then flutter away to chase a very rambunctious 2-year-old boy. Everyone is better at digital organization than I am and if you have the skill, offer the services. Katelyn at Yellow Rose Management offers services as a digital organization for bloggers.
Sales Funnel/Product Roll-Out Strategist
Writing an ebook is rather simple compared to rolling out a product. A good sales funnel and product rollout is crucial to the success of e-product sales. Mapping out, consulting and or producing sales funnel language that converts is a sought after service by bloggers.
