Have Your Website Pay for All Your Travel
WORK ANYWHERE, MAKE MONEY, DO ANYTHING
Do you want a more successful blog? Do you want to work less and have more time for what you want? Want to run a website that brings in money while you lay on the beach or play golf? Wouldn’t it be great if your office was anywhere you wanted?
I used to think that it wasn’t possible to make money online with a blog. Like so many people, I thought that the only way to make money online was to either be unscrupulous or get really lucky and invent something like Facebook.
But I was wrong – you can create something awesome that helps people and earn a living doing so. It’s easier than you think. If I can do it, you can too and I want to show you how.
“Matt’s book changed my life. I spent the past 2 years doing “research” on how to make money online without the courage to actually do it. Then I came across Matt’s blog, downloaded his book and read Matt’s straight forward, step by step approach to making money online and the fear vanished, the questions were answered and now the games have begun. It has only been a few weeks and I have began getting the first feedback, RSS feed signups and comments on my Blogs. Matt did for me in 2 weeks what 2 years of research could not do!” – Melanie, http://www.cruisewire.net
Like you I dreamed of having my blog bring in money. I wanted it to help me work less and give me the flexiblity to do what made me happy. Bu I had no idea where to start. I had no website knowledge. No clue was to what SEO was, how to gain traffic, or make money with a blog. It was all a mystery to me. But now, I make over $10,000 USD per month. I understand blogging, coding, SEO, and marketing. My website get over 300,000 visitors per month. This website got me a published book deal. But most importantly, this website lets me do anything, work anywhere, and live life as my own boss.
I tell you this because I want you to know that you can start from nothing and turn it into something. I tell you this so you don’t let your knowledge gap and fear keep you from persuing your dreams. Every blogger starts from nothing which means every blogger can be a success – especially you.
There’s a lot of shiny marketing courses out there that will “teach” you how to make money online. I took a bunch and they were awful. They never related to me the beginner and they made promises they couldn’t keep Everything I tell you in my book I do myself. That’s why I know this stuff work. I don’t promise you millions. I am simply promie you honest, practical, and tested strategies that work so you can become your own boss, make money with your blog, and travel the world. My blogging advice has been featured in the following major media publications and books because it works:
HOW THIS BOOK WILL HELP YOU
With this book, you’ll learn the skills you need to become successful and follow in the footsteps of the over 1,000 other people who have bought this book. This book will help you:
Break through the clutter of the web and let your story be heard
With so many travel blogs out there, it can be hard to know where to start or break through the clutter. With this book and my help, I’ll help you pick an area of expertise so you can rise to the top and break through the crowd and get a large and global following.
Learn how to make money ANYWHERE
The core of this book teaches you how to make money with newsletters, book deals, affiliate marketing, creating courses or books, sponsorships, direct advertising, Google Adsense, and more from anywhere you want in the world. I spend my days on the beach doing what I want by using the strategies outlined here. You’ll develop a stream of income that allows you to live the life you want, on terms you want, from anywhere in the world.
Get tens of thousands of visitors each month by learning the best practices in audience building
You set up a blog, you write a post, and the traffic comes right? Wrong. It takes a lot of work to build traffic and awareness of your blog. And with so many different social networks out there, it’s easy to misuse your time. This book will show you the most time efficient strategies to put your energies so you can get thousands of readers to your blog per month through Stumble Upon, Twitter and Facebook, guest posts, and viral content.
Find out how simple Search Engine Optimization is – and outrank your peers in Google
I’m going to tell you a secret. SEO isn’t that hard. If you know a few basic principles about how search engines work and follow those principles, you can get lots of traffic. Buying this book will show you the basics of how search engines work, what you can do to rank high in them, where to get links, and what’s good SEO vs. bad SEO. I hardly spend anytime on SEO and I average 70,000 visits per month from Google. Why? Because once you do a few things, the rest falls into place which means you can spend more time on what is important – connecting with your audience and gaining readers.
Create a long term road map to help you reach your goals – and stay there
Most bloggers fail because they don’t know what they want or where they want to go. You can’t become successful if you don’t know what you want. When you buy this book, I’ll help focus your attention, create a list of goals, and help you develop a plan for monetary success. Because the most successful bloggers and business have clear goals and plans how to reach them. Those that don’t get forgotten by the fickle Internet.
Become a success no matter your field
My main experience is building travel websites but I’ve built websites in other niches. I’ve built music websites, bartending websites, home improvement, and pet websites. I’ve used the same tips in this book on the other websites too. The same principles that apply for travel blogging apply in every other topic. While much of this book is focused on travel, the same principles that create a successful travel blog also create a successful blog in any other niche. Promise.
