In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Jeff Rose discusses how his finance blog turned from marketing tactic to into one of his most lucrative revenue streams.

As a financial planner just beginning his business, Rose knew he had to get the word out somehow, including possibly using creative strategies like writing a blog in order to generate interest. Eventually, Rose tweaked and worked on this blog for close to three years -- before something surprising happened to him. 

One day, Rose got an email from a stranger asking to buy his blog. At the time, Rose was using Google Analytics to get a sense of his blog's value. However, at the time of offer, the stranger did not even ask to see analytics and was willing to offer $150,000 for the entire website. 

Despite the terrific offer, Rose turned it down. The reason to do so?

Rose breaks his rationale to a few specific rationale. Click on the video to hear why.
